Quote Of The Day – Father Tony Adams

“From the immaculate soles of his Pradas to the jeweled tip of his
gold-threaded mitre, Pope Benedict XVI has been a paragon of gilded
denial whose brow furrowed briefly when confronted with news of
pedophile priests, church cover-ups, condom use in Africa, unruly nuns,
plummeting Sunday church attendance and a general lack of new and
renewed subscription to a church that has kept its flock in line with
the threat that disobedience to the infallible moral teaching of its
pope would lead to eternal fire in hell.

“Benedict once said that it would not bother him if the Catholic
Church should become drastically smaller in size by the weeding out of
dissenters. His ‘my way or the highway’ approach to pastoral leadership
resulted in the silent and almost unnoticed mass exodus of significant
numbers of American Catholics who simply stopped getting married in
church, stopped going to church on Sunday, stopped feeling guilty about
gay sex, artificial birth control, condoms or vibrators, stopped
entering the confessional on Saturday afternoon, stopped becoming nuns
and priests, and, as was disclosed in startling recent surveys, stopped
believing that gay people should not have equality and that other belief
systems are not just as good as Catholicism.” – Father Tony Adams, writing for South Florida Gay News.
