Marywood University, Addendum for Diocese of Scranton

Just a few hours ago I posted an article about the lack of Catholicism in the Scranton Diocese and the fact that they wouldn't let Michael Voris speak at Marywood.   Well, it has now become the ENTIRE Scranton Diocese.  Here is the announcement from the Diocese: 

Statement Regarding Michael Voris

Posted on: 04-7-2011 Posted in: News
The Diocese of Scranton has determined that Mr. Voris will not be allowed to speak in a Diocesan or parish facility. After these engagements were scheduled, the Diocese became aware of concerns about this individual’s views regarding other religious groups. In videos posted on the Internet, Mr. Voris makes comments that certainly can be interpreted as being insensitive to people of other faiths. The Catholic Church teaches us to respect all people, regardless of their faith tradition.
Although the Diocese shares Mr. Voris’ support of efforts to protect human life, his extreme positions on other faiths are not appropriate and therefore the Diocese cannot host him.  

His criticism was not meant to be insensitive...after all, the Catechism calls the Catholic Church the "One True Church", so where is he wrong?  Since we now know that the Diocese of Scranton can't take the criticism of a True Catholic, then maybe Pope Benedict made the wrong choice for Bishop...maybe Bishop Bambera should have stayed in his previous position and remained a director on the board of the University of Scranton.  At least then he wouldn't have to try and act like he cares whether an Abortionist comes to a "Catholic" ,oops I mean Jesuit college and makes them all look like wishy-washy namby-pamby  "enablers".  Be Catholic.  That means standing up for what is the TRUTH as taught by Jesus Christ.   I don't know what 'god' you follow but it surely isn't Jesus.  He would be there with a whip driving them from His House.  What do you do Bishop?


You don't want to "offend" anyone.  Did you ever stop to think you might just be offending GOD?

And Cardinal Rigali, good are truly going to need it.

Jesus IS Lord!!
