So, here’s an initial approach.
Perhaps we can pay as much attention to the sections on markets and environment, as the catholic Left pays to Humanae vitae.
We will pay as much attention to this as the libs pay to Summorum Pontificum.
So, an admittedly right wing priest is now counseling Catholics to become cafeteria Catholics and pick and choose what they will follow and what they will ignore. He is teaching them that they may ignore what comes from Rome, after years of claiming that Rome must be obeyed. And his justification for this is an infantile "They did it first!"
So what if they did it? Did we not condemn them for doing so? If it was damnable for them to ignore Humanae Vitae and Summorum Pontificum is it not doubly so for us to now ignore the teachings we dislike, for we, by our own words, know better? If it was wrong for them then, it is wrong for us now. If it is not wrong for us to do it now, then we had no leg to stand on for when we condemned them, and we owe them an apology. Somehow, I do not see one coming.
How can he, or anyone who has followed in his shoes, expect to be heard and listened to or even taken seriously when we have writ our hypocrisy in large for all to see? If we continue this war amongst ourselves, neither right nor left shall win, and the only one who benefits is our true enemy.
