These days, people say "Season's Greetings," which, when you think about it, means nothing. It's like walking up to somebody and saying "Appropriate Remark" in a loud, cheerful voice.

Perfect. Cardinal O'Malley with Pro-Abortion Lunatics at Pro-Abortion Mayor's Inauguration

Cardinal Sean O'Malley was reportedly at pro-abortion and pro gay-marriage Boston Mayor Martin Walsh's inauguration to pray but there he stood with pro-abortion Governor Deval Patrick and Senator Elizabeth Warren.

I'm not knocking the Cardinal. It's just the kind of thing we see over and over again. Mind you, I'm not against him praying for Martin Walsh, Deval Patrick, and Elizabeth Warren. But this kind of visual just dispirits so many Catholics. And in this case, I'd strongly suspect that Cardinal O'Malley was simply being used as a political prop. Maybe not. But I suspect so.



To be fair, in that photo he could just be applauding yo-yo ma (who actually was there.) But it almost doesn't matter as this photo will be used often, I'm sure. That's the point. Coming there to pray is good but standing there and applauding next to prominent pro-abortion and pro-gay marriage pols is just not what Catholics need to see.

Why is he there? If he's not there to convert them and bring about their contrition, then he's one of them. This whole Christ cavorted with sinners is little off. He converted the sinners, not cavorted with the sinners.

Perhaps next the cardinal will appear on DANCING WITH THE STARS.

Mack Hall, I think this might be a bootleg version of DWTS

Cue the "Jesus dined with sinners" crowd. Because Jesus laughed and guffawed and never told them to "go and sin no more."

wow that brown stole is so humble

Didn't John Paul II very deliberately turn his back to Wojciech Jaruzelski at a gathering as an indication of his rejection of Jaruzelski's positions?

I guess the only good thing in the top photo is that the two politicos are smiling while the Cardinal isn't.

The same can be said about politicians from the Republican party.

Matthew O'Rourke said...

I'll support the "Jesus ate with sinners crowd" when the Cardinal gives these people a good public scolding like JPII did with Ernest Cardenal in El Salvador.

JB said...

Matthew, yes. What an amazing moment, and one, today, which seems to be unthinkable. wouldn't be "pastoral" or something.

Pastoral happens when the souls are penitent.

It appears the pro-aborts are turning their backs on the Cardinal.

Bottom line. This just sends the wrong message. We keep hearing that nowadays Catholics are "confused". Well, no wonder when they see something like this. I've always had a lot of respect for Cardinal O'Malley. Where's his moral courage?
