This is a recap of the aforementioned event at Our Lady of Grace Parish in Edina, Minnesota, a large, white trimmed, church campus that looks more like a protestant megachurch in a disneyfied colonial style. It's actually difficult to descry a church structure amid the cluster of buildings.

Controversial, pro-homosexual speaker, Fr. Kevin Burke led a retreat at a Catholic Parish earlier this month in opposition to Archdiocesan Policy established by the allegedly conservative Archbishop Nienstedt (Who also supports Socialized Medicine and the CCHD). The response from the Archdiocese to this problem was not decisive and it wasn't in line with its own

Allegedly is the key word. No NO Bishops are really conservative with the one exception of Bishop Burke. They may hold a few conservative positions but they're all VII liberals at heart.

What's interesting about this is that they'e interested in at least appearing as conservatives.
In the time of our Lord, the Pharisees were conservative.

I don't think Our Lord would tolerate, or continue to tolerate, Bishops and Priests not protecting His sheep.

The people who are the Pharisees are the homosexuals in the priesthood and the episcopacy who won't be honest and resign their positions.
Archbishop talks tough, but Gay organizations still appear with impunity on Church property:

We're used to it. His Eminence speaks out of so many corners of his mouth could be a ventriliquist act if he simply had a dummy.
The sad fact is what ever we read here about the archd of saint paul, things are better than what we saw with with the prior archb (we dont hear much about st joan of arch, st stephens, etc in mpls as much as we used to  .... are those wired giant paper mache euro puppets still around for Mass?).

I'm beginning to think it's cosmetic, but it's true that there are some good signs too.  We keep hearing about how things are getting better, and it's understandable that things can't change overnight, but there are structures and individuals in place who keep things at a low level.  Minnesota is a test market for liturgical and theological revolutionaries and has been since the 20s and 30s owing in part to the presence of  St. John's Abbey..
