The vanity of evil

By Tom Quiner

Archbishop Charles Chaput predicted the future in 2012 with this prescient quote:

images“Evil talks about tolerance only when it’s weak. When it gains the upper hand, its vanity always requires the destruction of the good and the innocent, because the example of good and innocent lives is an ongoing witness against it.

So it always has been.

So it always will be.

And America has no special immunity to becoming an enemy of its own founding beliefs about human freedom, human dignity, the limited power of the state and the sovereignty of God.”

We are watching evil working overtime for the destruction of the good. The homosexual movement has no interest in tolerance, only subservience and surrender of the Church to the whims of the gay lobby.

    They used to “just want to be left alone” or “just want to be accepted for who they are”. That has morphed into “you must not only accept but APPROVE of my lifestyle”. This whole kerfuffle at Dowling is ridiculous. How can anyone think that it is appropriate for someone is homosexual to teach at a Catholic high school? I taught at a Catholic school for a year, and the teachers are not only teachers of their own content but also of religion. It would be hypocritical of the Catholic church to allow someone living in such a lifestyle to lead religious classes. It would be like PETA having to accept Colonel Sanders as their president.

    And it is not a matter of “bigotry”; it is a matter of living outside of the dictates of the Catholic church. I think the school would also be justified in firing a teacher who was caught in adultery or who was caught soliciting a prostitute or who was arrested for shoplifting.

      I agree, and I think Colonel Sanders would, too! 😉
