What Hypocrites Our Bishops Be!

Bishops to Couples for Christ: Screen all sources of donations!

An official of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines urged the Couple’s For Christ, a Catholic charismatic group, to screen the companies that want to help in the programs of CFC's social action arm, Gawad Kalinga (GK).

Bohol Bishop Leonardo Medroso, a member of CBCP’s Episcopal Commission on the Laity, said CFC should start discriminating which companies that want to help in GK programs are promoting the use of contraceptives as family planning method.

"They should really screen all their donors," Medroso said during an interview over Catholic Church-run Radyo Veritas Sunday.

He said the CFC should be careful in getting donations or help from companies that have anti-life perception or those promoting the use of artificial method of birth control.

"You cannot accept help from a funding agency which has anti life perception," Medroso said.
Father, how about the illegal log in thine own jaundiced eye?? Susmaryosep! I wish these Men in Skirts would stick to paedophilia and the fathering of illegitimate children with their confessants. They might actually get more sympathy than this trapeeze act of utter and debased hypocrisy.

After all is said and done, what matters is that we as responsible human beings, both as individuals and as institutions, demonstrate our dedication to the Truth and Justice of the God we profess to worship. I think this means we must show that we have the decency and discernment to see what the greater evils are and where worse injustices liel and not hew to dogmatism and authority to display our feet of clay!

It brings disdain to Religion and abets the greatest of all evils...the destruction of the moral spirit through the bad example of men who profess to uphold and preach it. If the bishops will not themselves do as they pontificate unto others, they should be strung up by their silly cilices for mocking God and crucifying men on the cross of their fakery and hypocrisy. They should use condoms on their foul mouths and contraceptives on their fouler minds. Whatever evils they claim attach to birth control, excluding abortion of course, those cannot possibly exceed the evil and injustice they themselves are teaching by blatant example.

Shame on them. Mark their upside down Crucifixes, everyone!

"Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you tithe mint and dill and cumin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faithfulness. These you ought to have done, without neglecting the others. You blind guides, straining out a gnat and swallowing a camel!

"Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you clean the outside of the cup and the plate, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence. You blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup and the plate, that the outside also may be clean.

"Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs, which outwardly appear beautiful, but within are full of dead people's bones and all uncleanness. So you also outwardly appear righteous to others, but within you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness."

[High-five to amadeo.]

Amen to that. Most of the bishops are unhealthily obsessed with sex issues that they turn a blind eye to other public sins.

The Church's mingling with big gambling really does make them weaker in terms of moral authority and influence. It's so sad they haven't made any step to resolve this.

I wonder how much money is that? Could they just get it from other sources?

It's pretty dumb to be connected to something even Jesus Christ had seen with resentment.

Hypocrisy! That's a big common word for sinners and saints alike. For fallible human beings, it's a bit hard to divine (discern?) what's in the hearts of men. But God knows what hypocrisy means for all of us.

Jesus agrees with you but not the Pope:

“You know that those who are supposed to rule over the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great men exercise authority over them. But it shall not be so among you; but whoever would be great among you must be your servant, .” (Mark 10:42-43).

In my next post I shall show that it is not about "sex" with them but "power"!

The pope and church are very conciliatory in what others believe. He doesn't impose; he understand the pluralistic nature of the marketplace of ideas. Look at his message to America and the world in his last visit.

The problem arises when one wants to impose on a church which is bounded by its doctrine.

Re: the pope's infallibility, I'm not sure if the church rams it to believers as a black and white thing. I think there are questions on faith that summons our conscience and free will. That's why we need discernment not only from the church, but from God as well.
