Florida Man, meet your bishop…

Or, pick your pastoral poison.

1) “I do not wish to lend our voice to notions which might suggest that same-sex couples are a threat incapable of sharing relationships marked by love and holiness and, thus, incapable of contributing to the edification of both the church and the wider society.”

2) “I do not wish to lend our voice to notions which might suggest that [father-daughter] couples are a threat incapable of sharing relationships marked by love and holiness and, thus, incapable of contributing to the edification of both the church and the wider society.”

3) “I do not wish to lend our voice to notions which might suggest that [armed robbery] couples (even if only fictional) are a threat incapable of sharing relationships marked by love and holiness and, thus, incapable of contributing to the edification of both the church and the wider society.”

Rewordings shall continue until immorality improves.

    “Spirit of the Synod”. That’s now a thing, eh? Anyway, for this to be a grand slam in Catholic craziness, we need a Catholic Answers article defending this as absolutely orthodox (hopefully it will quote de Chardin or Kung) and BenYachov/Shea hurling insults to keep the morale high. Both might already exist, but my head is already spinning too much after all this renewal I underwent while reading the quotes from the good bishop.

    So, we Floridians are shocked – shocked – to see this succoring of sodomites by this Bishop

  3. Sorry that your comment got caught in the spam filter I set up last year. You invoked that Jooish Troll name, is what happened. Srsly, though, all this “linguistic” and “merely pastoral” updating leaves one perpetually at risk of Vaticanal vertigo.

    A fellow who had to spend six figures to settle a sexual harassment lawsuit filed by his spokesman wants to talk about the “holiness” of same-sex sexual relationships? The deuce you say!

Be kind, be (relatively) brief, be clear...
