Seems as if last weeks lecture by Cardinal Stafford at CUA where he referenced President-elect Obama’s presidential campaign as “apocalyptic” has gotten Church dissenter and gay activitist Andrew Sullivan all hot and bothered:
“The Vatican hierarchy has become radicalized under Benedict and John Paul II– so much so that they see the West since the 1960s as entirely a creature of resistance to Humanae Vitae, the papal declaration that all non-procreative sex is a moral evil. But the notion that the recent election of Obama is a sign of the Apocalypse has, until now, been restricted to Protestant loonies. Until now…”
The misguided and ill-informed Andrew Sullivan continues to show his disdain towards his own journalistic profession. By failing to do real research about Pope Paul VI’s encyclical Humanae Vitae as well as basic documents like say, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, Mr. Sullivan has given himself license (among other things) to pronounce bigoted judgements on all things Catholic. The Church clearly says that sex must be “unitive” and “procreative” and are “offensive” if not served towards those purposes. Not “moral(ly) evil” as Mr. Sullivan states.
His diatribe towards Cardinal Stafford continues to cement his reputation for hate-filled journalism. Let us keep Mr. Sullivan in our prayers for his conversion of heart.
Ora pro Andrew Sullivan!
