|A "gay" online news site clamours for Archbishop Vigano's head|
The NY Times further claims the Archbishop "could be in for a chillier reception the next time he goes to the Vatican". Why would he? Apparently, because he arranged that Kim Davis meet the Pope? You may ask why would such a meeting be held in distain; why would the Pope not wish to encourage and support a conscientious objector? A woman who is willing to go to jail to oppose "an ideology of evil" (St. Pope John Paul II). Certainly a large number of churchmen have been falling over themselves to downplay, dismiss, obfuscate this meeting. And a number of them have been playing up the Papal meeting with the two practicing homosexuals at the Nunciature. Why? A very, very good question. A question for them to tell us.
|Up with the "gays", down with Kim Davis. Why, Fr. Beck?|
According to the New York Times, the Holy See Press Office depicted the Papal meeting with Mrs. Davis in this manner:
But the Rev. Thomas Rosica, a Vatican spokesman, said on Friday that the office of Archbishop Viganò had extended the invitation to Ms. Davis and that the pope was probably not briefed about her case. And the Rev. Federico Lombardi, the chief Vatican spokesman, depicted the meeting as one meet-and-greet among many.
Dr Massimo Faggioli, an associate professor of theology and director of the Institute for Catholicism and Citizenship at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, said: ‘The pope has to be able to rely on his own system, and in this case the system failed him. The question is, was it a mistake, or was it done with full knowledge of how toxic she was?
So Kim Davis is "toxic". What about Mo Rocca? Or the "gay couple" who were brought to the Vatican Nunciature, replete with video cameras?
Interestingly, Faggioli also writes for the homosexualist, Jesuit America magazine.
