I’ve been trying to write something exactly like that. It’s like Father Pavone took the words out of my mouth. I agree with what Father Pavone has written 100%. I’ll just put up what he wrote in the graphics above, as I am so frustrated with the pro-abortion, anti-free-exercise-of-religion, racist, anti-military, anti-police, pro-chaos, pro-marxist, pro-same-sex-marriage, clearly pro-Democrat, pro-Biden, but anti-Catholic doctrine and and anti-Catholic morality of the USCCB that it’s difficult for me to put two sentences together without guessing the USCCB’s response to any dialogue.
I end up putting words in the mouths of the USCCB, words like these:
Bishops: “God damn God and God damn neighbor because we bishops want peace with fallen human nature, and we bishops want peace with Satan. The only way to do that is to abandon God and neighbor and truth. We bishops won’t tolerate any reverence and humble thanksgiving before that, that Jesus, who is the Way, the Truth and the Life only for total losers who don’t think that we bishops alone are the ones, the only ones, the heroes, the ones who lead humanity!”
I mean, the entire history of the bishops (generally speaking, mind you), is to promote with all their might full-on marxist organizations like ACORN, like Catholic Relief Services, like Catholic Campaign for Human Development. I don’t collect for them. I won’t.
I’ll have no part of the Bishops’ bully pulpit to promote anti-Christ Biden. I will continue to evangelize the Natural Law, Catholic doctrine and Catholic morality, even if the USCCB makes a move to have me censored and silenced. I absolutely couldn’t care less. This life is very short. Eternity? Lemme just say this: I’d rather go to heaven forever and ever than go along to get along with everyone sliding into hell congratulating each other.
To put it differently, what with me being the SSL STD Scripture scholar guy:
“A large number of people from the towns in the vicinity of Jerusalem also gathered, bringing the sick and those disturbed by unclean spirits, and they were all cured. Then the high priest rose up and all his companions, that is, the party of the Sadducees, and, filled with jealousy, laid hands upon the apostles and put them in the public jail. But during the night, the angel of the Lord opened the doors of the prison, led them out, and said, “Go and take your place in the temple area, and tell the people everything about this life.” When they heard this, they went to the temple early in the morning and taught. When the high priest and his companions arrived, they convened the Sanhedrin, the full senate of the Israelites, and sent to the jail to have them brought in. But the court officers who went did not find them in the prison, so they came back and reported, “We found the jail securely locked and the guards stationed outside the doors, but when we opened them, we found no one inside.” When they heard this report, the captain of the temple guard and the chief priests were at a loss about them, as to what this would come to. Then someone came in and reported to them, “The men whom you put in prison are in the temple area and are teaching the people.” Then the captain and the court officers went and brought them in, but without force, because they were afraid of being stoned by the people. When they had brought them in and made them stand before the Sanhedrin, the high priest questioned them, “We gave you strict orders (did we not?) to stop teaching in that name. Yet you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching and want to bring this man’s blood upon us.” But Peter and the apostles said in reply, “We must obey God rather than men. The God of our ancestors raised Jesus, though you had him killed by hanging him on a tree. God exalted him at his right hand as leader and savior to grant Israel repentance and forgiveness of sins. We are witnesses of these things, as is the holy Spirit that God has given to those who obey him.” When they heard this, they became infuriated and wanted to put them to death. But a Pharisee in the Sanhedrin named Gamaliel, a teacher of the law, respected by all the people, stood up, ordered the men to be put outside for a short time, and said to them, “Fellow Israelites, be careful what you are about to do to these men. Some time ago, Theudas appeared, claiming to be someone important, and about four hundred men joined him, but he was killed, and all those who were loyal to him were disbanded and came to nothing. After him came Judas the Galilean at the time of the census. He also drew people after him, but he too perished and all who were loyal to him were scattered. So now I tell you, have nothing to do with these men, and let them go. For if this endeavor or this activity is of human origin, it will destroy itself. But if it comes from God, you will not be able to destroy them; you may even find yourselves fighting against God.” They were persuaded by him. After recalling the apostles, they had them flogged, ordered them to stop speaking in the name of Jesus, and dismissed them. So they left the presence of the Sanhedrin, rejoicing that they had been found worthy to suffer dishonor for the sake of the name. And all day long, both at the temple and in their homes, they did not stop teaching and proclaiming the Messiah, Jesus. (Acts 5:16-42 [indulging in irony, I take that passage from the bishops’ own NAB].)
////////////////////////// Just to be clear, our own bishop in this diocese is likely the best bishop in these United States, very Catholic, very prayerful, not at all censorious. :-)
