More Martino Bashing

Ok, so who is this guy and why do we want to read his opinion? I have no idea who he is, this is the first I'm hearing of him, but he apparently spews hatred for the Washington Post and dwells somewhere in our Diocese. And of course he felt he had to jump on the "bash the Bishop" bandwagon, but he writes things we've already read, and he doesn't say them very well.

He calls the Bishop's spirituality "deformed".

If defending the unborn and teaching the truth of the Catholic Church makes his spirituality "deformed", I pray my spirituality is 1/10th of that of Bishop Martino's.

If you want to go ahead and read his drivel be my guest. But I don't recommend it...

Sir Rockin One:

I read drivel like that only for entertainment value and perhaps educational purposes. It teaches me just how ignorant of the Faith people are, and how much work we as priests have before us.

This guy like most other Baby Boomer generation Catholics is the result of 40 years of "The Spirit of Vatican II" mentality. people were essencially taught sin is an illusion, and we need to worry more about our self esteem then we do worrying about what God wants. God just wants us to be happy.

In short it is not their fault. They are only doing what they were taught to do by the liberal dissadent priests and nuns who formed them.

Patience Sir Rockin One. This kind of stuff will get cleaned up but it takes time. It cannot be done overnight. We didn't get to where we are now overnight, and we will not get to where we need to be overnight either. Patience and prayer Sir Rockin One. Patience, Prayer and the Eucharist.

And yes- this guy clearly cannot think for himself. All he is doing is parroting the typical Anti-Martino clap trap under the guise of free thought. In some ways he reminds me of the Goth kids who dress as they do to be non-conformists. In the end all they do is conform to non-conformity.
