With Elizabeth Scalia - Error, sentimentality and emotionalism come before the facts

Let’s just say I usually never read Elizabeth Scalia or any of the Catholic writers at Aleteia or worse, Pathetic, I mean Patheos.

However, this I did read because of a link I came across. It has to do with Scalia’s views on Mo Rocca’s reading of Holy Scripture at Mass on Saturday in the presence of Pope Francis. Rocca, a Catholic, is a quasi-celebrity and out and proud sodomite activist who dissents from Catholic teaching on morality.

Remember that by clicking and reading her whole story you give her another penny. However, if you must, you can read what Scalia writes at this link or you can use Do Not Link to the right. http://www.donotlink.com/framed?786226.

Encountering Mo Rocca at the Ambo
When openly gay tv-newsman Mo Rocca ... "an unrepentant sodomite” ... papal event, much less a Mass?” That’s right Elizabeth, “an unrepentant sodomite” and a perfectly correct term. Sodomy and “sodomite” are the words used in Scripture and history. The word homosexual is just over a century old and “gay” means happy and joyful. He dissents from Church teaching and he does so publicly which is enough reason to disqualify him from an “official” and certainly a “liturgical” role in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Attending is another matter and receiving Holy Communion is the same for him as the rest of us, after Confession and Penance with a firm purpose of amendment of life! Well, ... “whoever was still holding the rolodex from .. He had emcee’d Benedict’s youth rally ... had not yet “come out” as gay. He had not “come out” and whilst is sexual sins may have been known by some, and thus the same factors would apply, he had not made them public so the public “scandal” did not exist. ...Rocca’s appearance at the ambo – whether by design or happenstance or the arcane workings of the Holy Spirit So, the Holy Spirit, the Third Person of the Most Holy Trinity picked Mo? Are you serious? A “culture of encounter” demands that we see the whole person before us, not simply an ideology, or a category of social standing, or even as a unit of sin, but as a whole person, Yes, but they don’t take an official liturgical role at Mass! the conversion, the turning of heart and soul, came from meeting Christ.  ... But they were not permitted to enter into the Holy of Holies and sprinkle blood were they, even if they were of the Tribe of Levi! None of that is effective evangelization; none of it begets the encounter. Reading at the Mass is not about evangelisation. That comes with “Ite missa est” Do you even know what the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is? ... he refrained from receiving Holy Communion, You don’t know that, nor do I and that is between him and God. ... Nothing prevents a Catholic – any Catholic – from engaging in parish life, or from licitly participating in the Mass; It was "llicit.No, we are also not permitted to engage in official liturgical functions whilst being a public dissenter, there is a difference between this and one’s private sins! Obedience ... What about the obedience to Catholic morality? ... Pharisee. Because everyone that upholds Church teaching is a Pharisee.
Really Elizabeth, you get paid for this bovine excrement?

I believe that I am under 300 words.

Have a great day.

All we need to do is change the sin of homosexuality to: murder, rape, pedophila and we see how deep the homosexual brainwashing has affected Catholics. Can you imagine the uproar if an unrepentant serial rapist had been chosen as lector? Can you imagine anyone standing up to defend the selection of an unrepentant serial rapist? And yet, according to God the sin of homosexuality of worse than the sin of rape. God decides, not us.

Just use donotlink or a similar service.

Lazarus laughed. There is no death.

New York is the Archdiocese of Mo where there is no sodomy. There is no judgment. The true offense is watching the Grand Marshall sitting behind the happy lector beyond so pleased with himself.

Of the two men, at least it appears that Mo still has a conscience (if he did not receive Communion). Good for him. It will come in handy when he meets Jesus at the well.

Thanks for printing this before the fair use police arrived.

All we need to do is change the sin of homosexuality to: denying someone their just wages, oppression of the poor and we see how deep the Americanist, capitalist brainwashing has affected traditionalist Catholics. Can you imagine the silence if an unrepentant owner of a sweatshop in Bangladesh had been chosen as lector? Can you imagine traditionalists standing up to condemn the selection of an unrepentant sweatshop owner? And yet, according to God, like sodomy the sins of oppression of the poor and denying a worker of their just wages are sins that cry to heaven for vengeance. God decides, not us.

Gay has an entirely meaning originally and sums up their sunny disposition. Check yourselves with Oxford etymological dictionary

The Pollyanna-caress blocked me on Twitter some time ago, and I never discovered why. Probably she thought I was taking Catholicism too seriously.

Fisking is a human right, Zelda.

Well done! It's nice to see someone take down that self-appointed Dispenser of Pastoral Wisdom Ms. Scalia. Interesting that her editor, Ms Caldwell apparently, came flying to her rescue with a laughable claim to copyright! I suppose it really is all about the money for some bloggers? It's a pity, considering how often they seem to reach for the "Pharisee" label when addressing their critics; if it was one thing the actual Pharisees at the time of Christ loved, it was money. At any rate, keep up the good fight! Correct the erring, with just the same degree of firmness and kindness that St. Jerome habitually employed.

“gay” means happy and joyful, indeed it does, these homosexual have hijacked the English language.

The best thing (and the only positive thing) is the graphic on Scalia's blog. The rest, as you rightly observe, is excrement, and--happily for us rabbits--it is bovine, not lapine.

The same designation would aptly fit Zelda of Aleteia's snippy email. Just canceled my aleteia subscription as the amount of BS it publishes keeps increasing.
