Entreaty to Readers of the National Catholic Reporter

Please, for the sake of your emotional well-being, leave the Church now. Just as the Holy Father has welcomed the more conservative members of the Church of England with Anglicanorum coetibus, who otherwise had nowhere to turn when their church left them, so the Episcopalian Conference would undoubtedly welcome you.

You would be much more at home there; for now, you’re just tilting at windmills. The Church will not budge on matters such as “womenpriests”, homosexual marriage, and so forth, because it cannot. If she did, she would cease to be Catholic. She would cease to be the church our Lord Himself founded. He made the rules. What part of that do you not understand?

On the other hand, if you’re as disgusted by the disloyal, disobedient, disputatious National “Catholic” Fishwrapper* as I am, then cancel your subscription at once. Otherwise … please stop pretending to be Catholic, stop pretending to speak for the rest of us, and leave us — and the Holy Father — in peace.

*Apologies to good and wholesome fish, who are undeserving of such ignominy.

I see Father Z, whose readership is an order of magnitude greater than mine will ever be (deservedly so) is all over this. Git ’em, Father!
