    For Pope Francis to appoint a slew of liberal bishops to the reporting committee of his own volition, whereas the conservative members were elected by their brother bishops, seems like stacking the deck, or as Voris puts it – “a dog and pony show”. It will harm the integrity of the Synod, bring its deliberations into disrepute, and be another source of conflict in the Church if orthodox Catholics believe someone is pulling strings to fix the outcome. Some (most?) sections of the draft document are deeply worrying, if not unexpected.

    Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition.

    …Revolution in the air!
    Good! Toad loves revolutions. They are exciting!

    “Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats.” (Mencken.)

    Question is: Who will be revolting? The “Trads,” we must suppose.

    At the 3:40 mark of the video, Voris asks Abp. Bruno Forte two questions:

    “Following on paragraph 50 in the section titled ‘Welcoming homosexuals’, the first sentence reads: ‘Homosexuals have gifts and qualities to offer the Christian community.’…Is the Synod proposing that these gifts and qualities flow from their homosexual orientation… and following on that…is the Synod proposing there is something innate in the homosexual orientation that transcends and uplifts the Catholic Church…and if so, what would those particular gifts be?”

    Abp Forte, replying on behalf of the panel says: “I must say it is not easy to answer such an ontological question [smiles and chuckles from His Excellency and other panel members]…I guess what I want to express is that we must respect the dignity of every person, and the fact of being homosexual doesn’t mean this dignity must not be recognised and promoted. So the fundamental idea is the centrality [?] of the person independently of different sexual orientations, and I think it is the most important point and also the attitude of the Church to welcome persons who have a homosexual orientation based on the dignity of the persons they are.

    His Exellency’s non-answer (and the smile accompanying it) to Voris’s straightforward and easily understood questions reminds me of a child caught telling a fib. Replace all references to homosexuals with schizophrenics in Abp Forte’s answer and it makes as much sense.

    You Englishmenwomen people are so funny. Yes, I know this story is 7 years old, but I live in Cambridge too (across the sea), and our municipal election is tomorrow, which is what made me think of it. None of our candidates, including a couple of adherents of Pisslam, have swapped sexes so far as I know. True,one is a criminal, with convictions for uttering threats in 1998, and a 2012 conviction for breaching a peace bond and a 2013 conviction for criminal harassment, and he’s scheduled to appear in court a month from now on more charges including theft, possession of stolen property, breach of probation, etc, but by God, he’s a 100% real man.
