Ed Peters

This really is laughable.

Teo Matteo

You know Carl, He did get almost all of it right-in that second paragraph.(He ignores of course the truths that the Church articulates) I wonder if most Catholic Pols could do the same.


Unfortunately he expresses a fairly common view of the Catholic Church, people never want to examine their prejudictes and bigotry, the facts are irrelevant. But we musn't give up. I saw that Pope Benedict wants to have a "Courtyard of the Gentiles" in Quebec city and two cities in the U.S. Washington was one I think. Never give up and never surrender! The Pope leads the way. God bless him!


Wow. I had to stop rolling my eyes throughout that whole thing, because my head was beginning to hurt. The first statement in that second paragraph, which is something that floats around incessantly, and is propagated by folks who have never read Humanae Vitae, is just unbelievable. Bigoted, as in frothing-at-the-mouth bigoted. Every bit of it, because it displays no real knowledge of Catholic teaching on sexual ethics.

I agree with Elizabeth, though. Let the "Courtyard of the Gentiles" also come to Washington DC, to New York, and to San Francisco. I'm confident, given what the Pope has actually written on "the dictatorship of relativism" and secularism as a whole, that he can more than hold his own. I found something similar in reading the late Elizabeth Fox-Genovese's conversion story, and it's too bad that she's not around anymore.
