In fact, they have been AWOL for years.
According to the Pew Research Center, most American Catholics don’t even believe that the Eucharist is the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Our Lord Jesus Christ. For the past 50 years, our shepherds have ignored teaching that vital magisterial truth, as well as others — prime example: Humanae Vitae.
Instead, they have supplanted the hard truths of the Magisterium with the sappy, flaccid sentimentalism of social justice. For years they have allied politically with pro-abortion Democrats and mindlessly supplied them with moralistic palaver to stoke their hatred of the Church, Her teaching and Her faithful.
The radical Left mounts that dead horse of white racism and drags it through our streets, fomenting violence and revolution.
That’s right. Do you know that “most” whites are racists, and no one else can be? Yes, our bishops have formally taught that since 1979. And today the radical Left mounts that dead horse of white racism and drags it through our streets, fomenting violence and, yes, revolution.
