|A fine example of a left wing Catholic|
There are those who squeal and whine about 'labelling' because, in their eyes, we are all Catholic.
Well, we are not all Catholic; quite a few have no place in the Church and should leave pdq.
But, just as they moan about being labelled, they also talk of traditionalist Catholics, those who try and attend a Tridentine Latin Mass as opposed to the new thingy, as being 'right wing'.
Well, I just don't get it.
Hitler was a right winger, Il Duce was another - we have nothing in common with them (apart from a toothbrush moustache and a funny uniform).
Whereas, those dear folk who dress to the left in liturgical terms do appear to have a great deal in common with the socialist agenda and all the mumbo jumbo it entails.
Adhering to Church teaching is surely neither left, middle or right wing, it's just, well it's just...being Catholic?
But, for those who ignore Church teaching, the new breed of *parish administrator, counsellor, co-ordinator, those who connive and spin threads of venom against orthodox priests and parishioners who do hold hard to doctrinal certainty;they are just displaying typical socialist behaviour patterns.
Make snide remarks, send anonymous letters to the Bishop, tittle tattle against those who do the correct thing. Those are all marks of the class snitch.
That is not Catholic behaviour, but Chairman Mao or Trotsky would certainly have approved.
* Yes, I do accept that there are some good parish administrators and so on.
