The Catholic Church Is Literally Going to Hell

2019 January 27
by bc3b

Confession: I have been Catholic all my life, attended a Catholic high school and have degrees from two so-called Catholic universities. I sent my children to Catholic high school, but  by the time they were ready for college Catholic universities had become so secular, why waste the money?

I always thought my faith would be more important to me as I grew older. The exact opposite is true.

The Catholic Church is like a fish – it has rotted from the head down. Today we have the worst (and by far most political) pope in modern times. For over a decade the disgraced former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick (a man who molested boys and seminarians) was the most powerful man in the US Church. Several dioceses paid out large sums to McCarrick’s victims. Benedict XVI placed sanctions on McCarrick. Francis not only lifted the sanctions but made McCarrick one of his top advisors. Many of the bishops and cardinals in the US appointed in recent years are men that McCarrick pushed. So, while McCarrick is sequestered in a monastery in the middle of Kansas, his disciples continue to destroy the Church from within.

A recent article in Church Militant describes how bad the current state of the Church is:

The so-called Lavender Mafia, gay or gay-friendly clerics occupying positions of power with the Catholic Church, are rapidly losing their beneficial cloak of secrecy.

An article by Catholic political conservative Andrew Sullivan on Monday highlights the studies showing there are thousands of U.S. clerics who are homosexual.

“In the United States, however, where there are 37,000 priests, no independent study has found fewer than 15 percent to be gay, and some have found as many as 60  percent,” wrote Sullivan. “The consensus in my own research over the past few months converged on around 30 to 40 percent among parish priests and considerably more than that — as many as 60 percent or higher — among religious orders like the Franciscans or the Jesuits.”

Francis is a Jesuit. Jesuits operate many of the largest Catholic universities in the US: Boston College, Georgetown, Xavier, Fordham, Creighton, Marquette,  Loyola, St. Louis University, Gonzaga, etc.

While Sullivan is gay himself, his figures appear to be fairly accurate. The late Cardinal George of Chicago, one of the last traditional cardinals, estimated that 30-35 percent of priests in the Chicago Archdiocese were gay.

St. Pius X, pope in the early 20th century, frequently wrote about he dangers of modernism and the damage it could do to the church. Unfortunately few popes since the 1950s have heeded his advice.

The Covington Catholic incident illustrates just how bad the Church leadership problem is. Based on the original (doctored) video, the boys own bishop and principal condemned them. They also were condemned by the US Conference of Catholic Bishops and bishops from across the country, who couldn’t posture fast enough.

Political correctness has replaced morality in the Catholic Church, which once was a leader in the fight against communism. Add religion to the other thing the left controls along with education, the media and the courts.

    Next month bishops from all over the world are meeting in Rome for a conference on the molestation problem. With Cardinal Cupich (Chicago) and another pro-GLBT cardinal from India running the conference, you can expect more smoke and cover-ups.

    The Church cannot solve the problem until it admits it’s primarily a homosexual problem. They are probably working with WWE scriptwriters now.

    The great thing about US Jews is that we self segregate between Reform/Atheist, “Conservative”/Egalitarian, and Orthodox/Observant.
    And we rarely co-exist.

    BC,

    A better question to ask Catholics would be:

    “If you were invited to a gay “wedding” would you consider attending?

    I bet that 67% number drops well below 50%.

    Just my educated observation

    And didn’t it require threat of a lawsuit to get them to do it?

    The Koch Bros, last billionaires to fund some Repubs, backed “prison reform” and now will focus on Open Borders and anti-Trump.

    For decades, unbeknownst to Catholics, the priesthood has been the Happy Hunting Ground for gay men. There are plenty of other gay priests to sodomize with, seminarians and alter servers to attack, etc. Get caught and in a major archdiocese like Detroit and the bishop transfers you to another parish in a remote suburb. I have read that the San Francisco and Oakland dioceses were actually swapping priests caught molesting.

    Until John XXIII the Church was in pretty good shape. After Vatican II everything fell through the floor.

    As I wrote, statements by the late Cardinal George confirm Andrew Sullivan’s statistics on parish priests. It’s no surprise that homosexuality among Jesuits and Franciscans is much higher.

    The worst part is that the problem has been public knowledge for 30 years (although Catholics only recently became aware of the scope of the problem) and has done little to correct it.

    There is a worldwide bishops conference next month, but given the cardinals running it, there will be another coverup.

    It’s okay to molest seminarians and teens, but don’t dare do anything politically incorrect (like wear a MAGA hat).

    My dream is that the Koch Brothers private jet will collide with Soros’ and miraculously the pilots will be saved.

    The Koch Brothers are just as bad as Soros.

    BC, saw Cardinal Dolan on Fox and friends this AM. He was questioned hard by Doucy a Catholic
    about excommunicating Cuomo because of the New York murder baby bill. Dolan’s answer was very weak. Dolan did not even want to comment on denying communion to Cuoma.

    At a time when the Catholic Church desperately needs people like Pius X and Fulton Sheen, it has people like Francis and Dolan.

    Dang a racism workshop! Be funny as hell if the course turn out to ‘how to be a racist’. I mean heck, its for whites only and only whites can be racist right? Will David Duke be the lecturer????

    As I always say:

    “If no matter what I do or don’t do I will be considered racist; I might as well avail myself of its privileges.”

    I need to print up some tshirts……

    Dear God BC! In this age Fulton Sheen would be dragged before the Pope and excommunicated for ‘bad thoughts’.

    Just as I cannot understand why people send their children to Catholic colleges, which pride themselves on being as secular as state schools, I can’t understand how non-elite private (mstly liberal arts) colleges stay in business.

    As a practicing Roman Catholic a couple observations.

    1. I have numerous Catholic priests as friends. The are just as pissed at Frannie the Pope as most Catholics. So, I hope people do not condemn all priests because of the hierarchy.
    2. The Church leaders ignore their communicants. We are very conservative in West Michigan (eh, bc) and we have to listen to anti-conservative HOMO-lies constantly by a number of priests. Our diocesan magazine is half Spanish and is constantly supporting free borders and government aid to them. Scary because I think we have one of the more conservative bishops in Walkowiak..
    3. Bishop was bullied? Don’t know if this was posted.

    I am going to be writing a post this week on the following topic:

    Stand Your SPIRITUAL Ground

    Later I will soften it (slightly) for use later as a sermon at our church (I have filled in once for our Pastor…and will use this topic the next time he asks me to fill in for him)

    It isn’t just the Catholic Church that seems incapable of standing their spiritual ground…it is disease of cowardice sweeping Christianity right now.

    In 60 years ABC has gone from Fulton Sheen having a well rated show weekly to shows promoting homosexuality.

    Sheen was likely the most effective Catholic speaker in the last 150 years. Piercing eyes. today he would be condemned as xenophobic, homophobic and other phobics the left would have to invent.

    You are right. Prior to Francis, the Catholic Church was one of the most traditional. John Paul II worked with Reagan and Thatcher in the cold war.

    Drdog, that article in #32 was excellent!

    I think the Roger Stone arrest is equally instructive of how CW2 starts. Imagine, God forbid, Stone’s deaf wife had DIED in the raid? CW2 may start like that.

    Drdog, this outstanding article is the perfect compliment to the link you provided in #32.
    As my father taught me: “When someone says they want to kill you…BELIEVE THEM”

    From the article:
    ==> “You better get your head in the game or you’ll find your head in a guillotine – definitely figuratively, maybe literally.”
