IT'S SWEENY BUT THIS TIME FEENEY OF ANOTHER KIND, ACTUALLY AN EXCOMMUNICATED CATHOLIC PRIEST FROM THE 1950'S WHO REPENTED ON HIS DEATH BED

The SPLC wrote that the Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary "continue to endorse Feeney and to defend him from charges of anti-Semitism, despite his well-documented hatred of the Jews" and noted that in 2004, Bishop McCormack had rebuked the group as "blatantly anti-Semitic," and that in 2005, a brother of the Slaves had given a speech calling out the "Jewish nation" as "the perpetual enemy of Christ." The center denies being anti-Semitic.

"The Slaves are being sanctioned by the church for their stance on the Catholic teaching that there is no salvation outside the Catholic Church. The Slaves hold to a strict interpretation of that teaching, while the Vatican holds a more nuanced view."

It's reassuring to know that the Church moves so vigorously and promptly to stamp out any and all violations of traditional Catholic doctrine, never allowing any heresy to gain a foothold among the faithful. No wonder purging this sick triumphalism is a top priority of the CDF.

Permanent Deacons are a novelty.

They should be suppressed when the leadership of the Church stops trying to win the approval of movie stars, progressive politicans and crooning inebriates.
