The Catholic Church in both Boston and New York is rolling over in the face of the homosexualist agenda. Homosexual groups have now marched in the St. Patrick's Day Parade in each city. In New York, Out@NBCUniversal and the Lavender and Green Alliance marched. In Boston, OUTVets and Boston Pride marched.
In an interview last week with C.J. Doyle of Catholic Action League and Sean Ryan of Mass Resistance, Michael Voris posed the following question to each guest: "How irritated are you at the bishops for not doing what they should be doing with regard to this?"
Doyle answered first:
I want the bishops to stop this appeasement. Neville Chamberlain looks like a hero compared to the American Catholic hierarchy. We have a situation where our bishops constantly pander to the enemies of the Church; the only people they can criticize are faithful Catholics. They've betrayed their own principles, they give awards to pro-abort politicians, and they do nothing to resist this homosexual aggression against Catholic morality and the constitutional rights of Catholic citizens.
Ryan offered similar thoughts.
The worst thing that can be done right now is to be silent, but there is no leadership on this issue other than from the Catholic Action League, C.J.'s group; from our group, who are leading lay people to try and to reform this, because we are in the middle of a great struggle in this regard, and for a Church that is tasked with delivering right or wrong and trying to help people, to quietly let folks slide away and say 'Oh well, you know, this is okay,' especially when you're in the middle of Lent, a time of penance for Catholics, when you're talking about St. Patrick, a saint who was a reformer — to let this slide and not invite people to reform themselves I think is absolutely horrible and it would be the least pastoral thing the institutional Church could do in that regard.
As the hierarchy caves, it is lay groups that are coming together to fill the vacuum of leadership. Venerable Abp. Fulton Sheen's prediction that it will be the laity that saves the Church has shown itself to be truly prophetic.
