Leonardo"s Notebook by Mattheus Mei

I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.

Bishop-elect who said Katrina was the fault of 'Gays' withdraws consideration

H/t to Damien Thompson for posting this.

Actually everyone on both sides of the ideological divide - except the right wing nutters - are pretty relieved over this news. His appointment a few weeks ago slipped in between two other controversies, that of the SSPX rehabilitations and the Legionary of Christ Scandal.

The AP article on the request for withdrawl can be found here. It's now only to see if the Pope actually accepts it.

If only he said that the Holocaust was the fault of Jewish gays, he might be wearing purple now.

Sadly you're absolutely right... I'm working on a big post about all of this. About Orthopraxis, Orthodoxy, and extreme ideology. This is disgusting.
