First we had collegiality & with it liberalness crept in, especially in "the West" where some Bishops were closet, ahem, pro-homosexuals.
Now we have some form of questionnaire. No doubt ignored by most, but taken up with gusto by pressure groups & vested interests.
Is our Faith up for debate? If so why isn't the Latin Mass mentioned? And why do I get the feeling this is all part of their Lordships slide into media-friendly heresy-embracing PR?
Do Catholics need to vote on "gay marriage" and what if 99% said they approve of sodomy and evil? Would that make it ok? Would that negate the Bible? The Magisterium? The Popes? The Saints?
I suppose I'm asking the question - is the Church a democracy? If it is do the Church suffering and triumphant have their say?
When we need clear leadership, clear dogma, clear teaching and clear morals, I'm sad to say this LOOKS like more 70s-style fudge and error.
I really hope I'm wrong and that their Lordships will defend our Faith and fight to save souls.
