ANGRY CATHOLICS WHO HAPPEN TO BE CONSERVATIVE OR ORTHODOX DO NO ONE ANY FAVORS BY BEING SHRILL, UNKIND AND USING NAME CALLING AS A TECHNIQUE TO GET EVEN


Rosie Perez made a mistake on camera on Tuesday during "The View." She lambasted the Church for not allowing divorced people to receive Holy Communion. She was wrong and this was pointed out to her. By her own testimony on Wednesday, though, she said some offering her feedback were very unChristian in the way they did it. Sounds like some who comment here must have written her!

What this tells us is how shrill some who want to uphold Catholic doctrine and truth can be when they try to correct someone who gets it wrong. This has to change. Charity is the greatest of the three theological virtues of faith, hope and love (charity) with love (charity) being the greatest gift!

Rosie Perez had the camera squarely on her during Wednesday morning's “The View” as she apologized for comments about the Catholic Church during a segment on the previous day's show.
While discussing the Church's stance on divorced parishioners, Perez said on Tuesday that divorced Catholics are not allowed to receive Holy Communion.

“I received a lot of responses about my statements regarding the Catholic Church's stance on divorcees and holy communion,” Perez said Wednesday, “and some of them, I might say, were not very Christian-like. But I forgive you and I hope you forgive my faux pas too.”

Perez explained that the Church allows divorced Catholics to continue as full members and that they may receive communion if they don't remarry or if they have their previous marriage annulled. She didn't mention those details on Tuesday's broadcast.

Excuse me Father but the reality is that Francis has been "name calling" everyone and everything he doesn't agree with from day 1.

No one on this blog has been "shrill." An archaic use of the term is "biting, keen, poignant." Some of the criticisms by members of the blog have, indeed, been biting, keen, and poignant, but none have been shrill. Hillary Clinton is shrill.

FrAJM, do you watch "The View"? I think it sponsored by PT Barnum.

I wonder what is coming up next?

Let's not be naive, the pope himself appointed those modernist bishops who wrote that document. Francis is not going to stop pushing his agenda just because some bishops don't agree. He is going to be infuriated and will push the issue even harder.

I would hope he teaches the faith clearly and without compromise but I can't see that happening.

If he tries to officially teach what was in that document then the problem would be solved, he would be on the first boat back to South America and hopefully the cardinals will have regained their senses and elect a pope who will confirm the brethren in the Faith.

And by the way PI has been unusually silent.

"Angry Catholics who happen to be conservative or orthodox . . . "

Agreed, nothing to be gained by shrill and unkind language by faithful believers. Whereas progressives constantly use these tactics to their great advantage.

So the language of orthodox and faithful Catholics--whether good, bad, or indifferent--is surely such an infinitesimal and miniscule problem that it hardly deserves mentioning, compared with the devastation being visited on Faith and Church by progressives doing the work of the evil one at all levels in the Church, from top to bottom.
