Major Schism in U.S. Catholic Church Underway

Even their name is an oxymoron.  American (national) Catholic (universal) Church (I thought the same for the name of  the New American Bible).

Quotes by Hans Küng
[quote]"If you cannot see that divinity includes male and female characteristics and at the same time transcends them, you have bad consequences. Rome and Cardinal O'Connor base the exclusion of women priests on the idea that God is the Father and Jesus is His Son, there were only male disciples, etc. They are defending a patriarchal Church with a patriarchal God. We must fight the patriarchal misunderstanding of God." — Newsweek interview, July 8, 1991[/quote]
[quote]"Everyone agrees the celibacy rule is just a Church law dating from the 11th century, not a divine command." — Newsweek interview, July 8, 1991[/quote]
[quote]"The same church must, in my opinion, also respect that the one whose name is absent from the same declaration out of embarrassment, although he and he alone led Muslims to pray to this one God, so that once again through him, Muhammad, the prophet, this God 'has spoken to mankind." — World Religions 129[/quote]
[quote]"The Pope would have an easier job than the President of the United States in adopting a change of course. He has no Congress alongside him as a legislative body nor a Supreme Court as a judiciary. He is absolute head of government, legislator and supreme judge in the church. If he wanted to, he could authorize contraception over night, permit the marriage of priests, make possible the ordination of women and allow eucharistic fellowship with this Protestant churches. What would a Pope do who acted in the spirit of Obama?"[/quote]

It's time to hand deliver the excommunications this time.  That nut Hans Küng should have been excommunicated long ago.  With them all together in Detroit it should make it easy to get rid of them all in one fail swoop.  Yep the sooner the better. 
I, like you, would just LOVE it if these people left what's left of the true Church. However, I several others have mentioned, that many people who favor a married priesthood, artificial contraception, women priests, etc. don't really care enough to "campaign".  However, maybe they'll all attend this conference, be excommunicated & we'll be rid of them. :pray:

It wasn't that many years ago that Bishop Bruskewitz excommunicated all of those who belonged to Call To Action & lived within his diocese. He immediately let the Vatican know what he'd done, as did the people he axed. The Vatican stood by him:

(CNS) -- The Vatican has upheld Bishop Fabian W. Bruskewitz's decision 10 years ago that membership in Call to Action "is totally incompatible with the Catholic faith" and results in automatic excommunication for Catholics in the Diocese of Lincoln.

Of course, this is the same man who....when the Bishops met in Dallas in 2,002 & were unable to reach a consensus about dissent & homosexuality being a good part of the reason for the crisis of sexual abuse of young boys, Bishop Bruskewitz threw up his hands & called them a "hapless bunch of Bishops". He's not very popular with the USCCB.
