Take a Knee! The Media's SNAP Judgement and the War on American Catholics: Cardinal Dolan is No Rembert Weakland

Grab  a knee; listen up!

All of you men, and yes,  you fine women, on this team know all about the sex-abuse scandal in the American Catholic Church - priests, like boy scout leaders, doctors, rabbis, school teachers and TV anchors, are human beings blessed and plagued by impulses and the strongest just might be our sexual appetites.  Most people reign-in those inclinations with what we call ethics ( what 'ought' to be) or morals ( what you can and can not do).  Some people have no off button.

Now, as an example, I have an impulse to knock the living shit out of Carmody, here, every time his snot running mug comes into my peripheral vision.  I fight that impulse with the knowledge that all of you are children of loving parents, except Carmody, here, and are being influenced by my total behavior.

I am like a lawyer working for a client, I must do all in my power to meet your needs and Carmody, like all of you does not need me knocking the living shit out of him.  That said, let's get down to cases.

Today, all of the newspapers and TV haircuts will be tossing shots at Timothy Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York and President  of Conference of Catholic Bishops.  He's the top bishop in America.  Before he was Archbishop of New York, Dolan was Archbishop of Milwaukee.  The beef du jour . . .Carmody!  Pay attention, for once, will you . . .the beef du jour is that while Dolan was bishop of Milwaukee, he put some dough for the Church aside, in order to keep Church looter Jeff Anderson's mitts off of it.  Anderson is ambulance chaser. 

Dolan took over that bankrupted and looted archdiocese from Rembert Weakland - the first openly homosexual bishop in America. 
Weakland was loved by the media, because he went counter to the teachings of the church on hot button issues - he was accommodating. Here, I got this old clipping from the New York Times 2009 article in my windbreaker here - Get a load of this - 

On the ABC program “Good Morning America,” the archbishop watched a man he had fallen in love with 23 years earlier say in an interview that the Milwaukee archdiocese had paid him $450,000 years before to keep quiet about his affair with the archbishop — an affair the man was now calling date rape.
The next day, the Vatican accepted Archbishop Weakland’s retirement.
Archbishop Weakland, who had been the intellectual touchstone for church reformers, has said little publicly since then. But now, in an interview and in a memoir scheduled for release next month, he is speaking out about how internal church politics affected his response to the fallout from his affair; how bishops and the Vatican cared more about the rights of abusive priests than about their victims; and why Catholic teaching on homosexuality is wrong.
“If we say our God is an all-loving god,” he said, “how do you explain that at any given time probably 400 million living on the planet at one time would be gay? Are the religions of the world, as does Catholicism, saying to those hundreds of millions of people, you have to pass your whole life without any physical, genital expression of that love?”
He said he had been aware of his homosexual orientation since he was a teenager and suppressed it until he became archbishop, when he had relationships with several men because of “loneliness that became very strong.”
Archbishop Weakland, 82, said he was probably the first bishop to come out of the closet voluntarily. He said he was doing so not to excuse his actions but to give an honest account of why it happened and to raise questions about the church’s teaching that homosexuality is “objectively disordered.”
“Those are bad words because they are pejorative,” he said.
Carmody, 'pejorative' means bad. Okay,  Weakland resigned as archbishop of Milwaukee, because it was learned that he had paid out almost a half million buckeens to former Marquette University student who accused Weakland of raping him.

Weakland was OK with homosexuality which he did feel God cared about and as archbishop of Milwaukee Weakland felt that it was OK to use church money to keep the kid quiet.  The American press was OK with Weakland and it still is OK with Weakland.  Weakland is a reformer.

While Weakland was the reformer Archbishop of Milwaukee ( 1977-2002)  priests with identical impulses of Weakland felt that it was OK to act on homosexual impulses - no different that a Cole Porter Mass, or liturgical dance.

Jeffery Anderson owns SNAP - SNAP is the Survivor's Network Against Priests.

SNAP receives most of its funding from lawyers who target the  the Catholic Church

Jeffery Anderson is one-time alky-bust-out ambulance chaser, who sobered up and discovered that suing the Catholic Church in America is a gold mine.

Jeffery Anderson is the George Hearst of this Catholic specific mother lode. SNAP is data mining operation dedicated to gathering persons who were, or have come to believe that they were abused by Catholic clergy.

Now, listen up!  You will not read or hear about Rembert Weakland in any of the news about the recent revelations of Jeffery Anderson and SNAP about Cardinal Dolan as Archbishop of Milwaukee.

Rembert Weakland was to the media a church reformer and an accomodating cleric who just happened to be as Gay as The Mikado, raped his student and hushed it up with half a million buckeens.

Carmody - pay attention!

The Catholic Church is and will always be opposed to killing unborn babies and will always recognize marriage as a sacred union between a man and woman to make a family.

Because Our Church is against abortion and the redefinition of marriage, as well as providing Trojans to Sandra Fluke,  our enemies use the term 'shielding predators.' as a pejorative, to quote Rembert Weakland and dismiss the fact that homosexuals were doing the abusing and most of shielding of abuse - like Rembert Weakland.

Weakland gets a pass and crap gets tossed at Dolan.  That's the 4th Amendment in the hands of hacks and litigator - activists. 

Cardinal Dolan is facing lawyers, SNAP activists, journalist hacks and easy opinion.

He'll be fine.

Alright!  Drink plenty of water and hit the sleds!  Oh, Ms. Carmody, here is that $ 20 I owe you.  Thanks Sweetie.
