PASTORAL COMPROMISE? No queers, but communion for remarried divorcees MIGHT be OK sometimes? Eh?


Traditionalists everywhere can rejoice because the Vatican Secretary of State, H.E. Pietro Cardinal Parolin, has stated that the results of the Irish referendum on same sex marriage is a "defeat for humanity."  So, no need to get your panties in a bunch over the possibility of sodomy being given the green light at the up coming synod.  GLBT individuals will remain intrinsically disordered.

So perhaps this will loosen things up for the divorced and remarried?


Probably not.



Especially if certain people have their way.  Especially the conspiracy theorists. IMAGINE! NOW Father Zzzzzz is calling for "Transparency" in the Church. (Really. Take a few moments and read the whole thing. Even Father D is speechless.)

Yes. Ideally, marriage is supposed to last forever.  But we do not live in an ideal world.  The Church needs to at the very least DISCUSS some possibilities. No?  

I don't advocate a free for all with the Sacrament of Matrimony becoming a revolving door. Is there a possibility that in some cases that our Holy Mother Church can exercise what the Eastern Orthodox refer to as Economy (for the sake of the soul the strictness of the law is loosened) in certain cases?  

Yes, this will require additional work for diocesan tribunals, but at the rate that the North American Academy for Dance and the Episcopacy is cranking out graduates with Licentiates and Doctorates in Canon Law, this should not be too much of a problem. 

Meanwhile, let's check in and see what our friend Mundybear has to say...

The Church is a place for all people.

  1. My bet is that Lard Ass the Lacy Boy's 'research junket' to Rome, possibly funded and perhaps partially accompanied by the Temple Police (the 'We'), was to brown nose Dodaro for hints, gossip, access to 'inside' info about right wing paranoia and possible blocking tactics at the Synod.

    The dissembling Sybarite has dropped a couple of clues already: the brown paper covered book by Dodaro on his return plane journey and recently, his 'wink wink' tips on the 'likely' manipulations by the fiendish Kasperites/Baldisseri-ites to engineer the process around the language based discussions groups.
    The mere suggestion that the Lacy Lard is on the 'inside' and the source of scoops and privileged information must have the 'subscribers' wetting their pants with excitement.
    Without doubt, the Dissembler will soon be informing the camp followers about just how much lean the month has been in the donations area despite the heavy financial outlays on his latest Gay Paree/Roma 'my-view-for-awhile-this-one's-not-on-me-but-on-you-rort.'

    This is what Robert Mickens has had to say in his latest Letter from Rome:

    "The core of this group is based in Rome. And its most ambitious project to date has been the publication of a book last year aimed at countering the Kasper proposals. Remaining in the Truth of Christ: Marriage and Communion in the Catholic Church is edited by Fr. Robert Dodaro, an American Augustinian that has been in Rome since the 1980s. A brilliant scholar and an authority on the writings of St. Augustine, he is currently president of the Patristic Institute Augustinianum, probably the most serious of all the pontifical faculties in Rome."

  2. Readerette here. My question is really simple. How the hell would Cardinal know what a defeat for humanity is? Do they have any?

  3. I guess it takes one to know one. He would know.

  4. I once saw a priest outside St Martin in the Fields with a basket of communion wafers and a sign saying "please receive the body of Christ." He had a silly grin too.

  5. Zippora the Powder Puff rants again and gives vent to the customary fit of pique when a mere peasant fails to spot the clear signs of entitlement and privilege which go with the Kevlar tactical ontologically superior super size cargo pants and Spider Man blue cast iron booties.
    Now he hates the mid West almost as much as he despises Francis.

    "So I walk into a Delta Sky Club at DTW-B and “Maria” at the desk sends a young man to chase me down to tell me that I can’t eat it in the club. I wasn’t trying to by the way, but, damn, Maria had me hunted down.

    Of course these Sky Clubs have such wonderful fare for the clients.

    I should start chronicling how awful some of the stuff is… especially in comparison with thee lounges at Heathrow and Schipol.

    Annoyed."

    1. And, he always takes pictures of portions of other people and posts them on his blog. Someone's foot is always in the wrong place or someone is wearing the wring shoes ... I realize that riding on a plane is public, but wouldn't most people expect to be able to travel in a public place without having someone ridicule them online?

    2. John, you behave like a prissy little brat.

    3. One of the comments over there suggested that z offer it up, all his travel troubles.

    4. Ha Ha. Check those Zildo comments again. He removed the one mentioning "bitching priests" & suggesting he offer up his travel travails. What a thin skinned prick!

  6. My time is spent in trav'ling east,
    From binge to Zedhead-funded feast
    Sometimes with selfie-phone I trawl
    For hairy legs against a wall.

  7. Yes, it seems Zed has a bit of a leg and foot fetish lately.

    1. Is "Long Skirts" safe around him??

    2. Quick commonsense answer is NO. Ask Mark T to expound on the topic if you have the stomach for it.

    3. Johnny Z... You are a TURD.

    4. Long Skirts gets pregnant at the very thought of Z's crypto-pinup, the now quite diseased schismatic and died so, Mons Lefebvre.

    5. Is this Long-skirt's 38th or 39th pregnancy?
      That uterus has seen more traffic than the Holland tunnel.
      I always wonder how many of her babies are crying for dinner while she is penning poetry?

    6. She's just a poor dumb traddie that doesn't know any better. Pray, pay, give birth, and obey.

  8. I see that Lacy-boy didn't post a selfie of him and Bishop Finn when he was in Kansas city.
    I knew that he would drop Finn like a hot rock. It doesn't do him any good to kiss Finn's ass any more.
    Lacy-boy is the most superficial person that I have seen in a long time.

    1. Is Finn retired or is he to be reassigned?

      Delete
    2. Finn has resigned. He will not be given another diocese or position. His career is finished. Over. Done. Caput.
      His only responsibility now is preparing what remains of his soul for the day he must face the final judgement.

      Delete
    3. Mr. Finn's departure is a good start. It does remain sad that so many have escaped justice.
