  •  Unfortunately (4+ / 0-)

    John Paul II made some very big mistakes in appointments of American bishops during his tenure.  In fact, many, if not most currently serving in the U.S. hierarchy these days are supporters of Donohoe and his ilk.  My religion is being wingnut-ized.  It's pretty sad.

    I recommended your comment. And then I un-recommended it.

    •  I'll agree to this extent (0+ / 0-)

      I think the bishops are so used to being ignored that when a republican protestant comes to them and asks for some sort of conservative statement, they are so flattered that they ignore that they are being used by people who actually detest them and their practices.

      I couldn't believe that protestants got away with slamming Kerry for almost being refused communion when each and every single one of them would be refused communion.  The bishops did nothing but fuel the rumors, thereby elevating the people who wouldn't follow any of their teachings over the guy who followed almost all of them.

      A fantasy was if Kerry would, sadly, join a protestant church.  Then he would be on the same footing as the rest of the protestants.  What would they say, then?  "Welcome"?  Or "Well, there's protests and there's protests".
       

      The more meta, the more bettah.
