Mandeville, LA – Lest the bishops—Foy and Kurtz—think I have forgotten them: Where is your manly courage, your fatherly instinct and felt duty to fight evil when it rears its ugly, Satanic head? Where are your shepherding hearts? Where is your Christian independence of mind, rooted in the truths of the Gospel, that should help you stand firm with Christ when others are convulsed by manufactured outrage, and the storm rages about you (Matt. 8:23-27)? Where is your willingness to sacrifice yourself rather than expose mere children to the fury of opportunistic outrage mongers who would howl with approval if you and your brother bishops were thrown in prison tomorrow for refusing to marry same-sex couples and opposing employer-provided contraception?
The Church’s singular job is to convert the world to Christ, not appease it; if you think that the former will lead to the latter, and all that’s needed is more “dialogue,” then hang up your mitres and turn in your crosiers because you are standing in the way of the Great Commission.
Fathers and mothers do not treat their children this way. They do not side with known enemies of the Church because they fear pressure campaigns and PR nightmares. Stop betraying our trust for the approval of a world in the grip of God’s enemy, a world which hates you and which crucified the Son of God. – The Church is Very Sick and in Need of Renewal, and Covington Proves It, Deion A.
