Imagine Obama then. The full weight of the American Bishops and the flock squarely opposing him to his face. Then imagine all of the phoney Catholic Politicos running for cover. Delicious. It might give the Bishops the courage to say the two words which apply to these phoney Catholic Politicos in both parties,
"Anathema sit".

I think it seems more like a human being who has often done things that frustrate us and has often failed, but this time is doing a good thing as a  prince of the church and needs are prayers as this might be the beginning of more strong statements in support of the Church.

I guess.

Back in the day I used to hang out with some Catholics that thought JPII was the greatest. Why?

"Because he is just so prolife!"

My response," Big deal, he's the Pope, he is supposed to be."

This man is a Cardinal. I don't really see why him doing his job (at the very, very least), should warrant any type of praise. Especially in light of all the horrible things he promoted during his career.

I have no problem praying for him.

I'm not saying we should pretend he's always been a great Catholic leader.

But if he does something good and we acknowledge it as good and avoid emphasizing what we don't like, it sends a message.  I'd like all Church leaders to get this message: "if you support the faith, we support you.  We trads will have your back.  When the secular world really ups the persecution, you can rely on us.  Even if you haven't been our friend in the past, we don't keep enemies, we respect your office, and we will fight with you for the Faith when it really gets tough, when the liberals all defect to the secularism of our age."

My response would be a little different," We will stand up for Christ and His Church weither you are with us or against us, see ya at the TLM..." LOL But that's the mood I'm in today. Your way is much more diplomatic.  Grin
