Catholic Congressman to boycott Pope Francis’ speech before Congress September 18, 2015Posted by Tantumblogo in Basics, disconcerting, episcopate, error, foolishness, General Catholic, Interior Life, Papa, Revolution, sadness, scandals, shocking, Society, SOD.
I don’t know what I think about this. I’d say rebuttal might be better than avoidance, since he’s already blasted Pope Francis’ stand on climate change (so he can’t be excusing himself to prevent being seen in opposition to the Pope).
At any rate, the wheels seem to be coming off. This is a sort of unprecedented development, is it not?
Well……discuss. I’m well and truly out of time. Sorry posting was so short today. Work is getting busy and will be for a while. Meanwhile, the TFP petition to Pope Francis to PLEASE, PRETTY PLEASE, WITH SUGAR ON TOP! defend Catholic Doctrine is up to 626,000 signatures.
Post material for next week: at what point should traditional Catholics forgive groups that may have had an awkward or problematic past? I’ll list a few specific examples in the post, but TFP would be one of them. Yes, they got a little bit nutty, especially in Brazil, in the 80s/early 90s, but since their founder died seem – seem – to have settled down. Anyway, more on Monday.
