Et tu, Brute?

Pardon me for mixing religion with Shakespeare but that's the phrase that first came to mind when I heard about so-called Catholic Sen. Bob Casey's cop-out about-face on so-called gay marriage.  Chris Matthews was practically doing cartwheels with joy.  What's next, Senator Casey, an endorsement of abortion on demand?  His father must be rolling in his grave.

Politicians are dropping like flies on this issue.  Faithful and morally upright Catholics are being subjected to all kinds of name-calling.  I don't think most people in this country would know what hate  if it slapped them in the face.  Is not wanting to see someone condemn themselves to Hell hatred?  Is wanting to guide your children toward Heaven hateful?  Apparently so.
.
When will these two be censured by their bishops?  

How much longer will God put up with this?

  1. I didn't think Chris Matthews could even do a cartwheel, what with his leg being perpetually tingly and all.

    1. Yes Caroline, never any shortage of intentions that's for sure. Sometimes when I pray the chaplet I simply think of all the outrages I heard or read about that day and pray for those. I run out of chaplet before I run out of events to pray about!
      Love and prayers,

  3. I don't want to get political, but you can never trust Democrats on faith issues. That's not to say Republicans won't let you down either, but by and large Democrats have no self interest in uphold religious values. If they do it's a plus, but when the tide turns against them they will shuck it off pretty easily.

Comments which reflect true Christian charity are always welcome. Comments which attack the Pope, the Church, priests or other bloggers will go in the dustbin, especially if they are anonymous. Thank you and God Bless you!
