Dave Griffey at Daffey Thoughts gives us the latest installment of the ongoing debate between Mark Shea and Mark Shea:
Mark Shea defends and praises George Soros
Declaring criticisms of Soros by conservatives the stuff of lies and evil which, to Mark, the captain of the Calumny for Christ brigade, is all that exists to the right of the political center. I was going to go into some detail, trying to express my continued shock at the depth to which Mark is sinking into those things he once declared an affront to goodness, truth and the Gospel, but why bother? Here is Mark, 2010, pinning Soros for what Soros is, not praising him, as Mark now does:
Speaking of the Soros payroll, you got your Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good disappearing without a trace now that their only real mission—snookering suckers into thinking that supporting a guy who favors sticking scissors in a baby’s brain is some glorious expression of Catholic social teaching—is accomplished. Being a wholly-owned subsidiary of George Soros, they were, in fact, as real a Catholic social teaching apostolate as a Potemkin Village is a real city. Mark Shea, 2010.
Compare to yesterday:
Yeah, Soros is wrong about abortion like every other lefty. But then, he’s Jewish, not Catholic, and his tradition has never taught him to believe what the Church teaches. But with regard to the rest, he seems to be doing a reasonable job with his wealth, which is more than you can say for many billionaires. Mark Shea, 2018.
Yeah, abortion and all. You know. Stuff and things. That’s it. So abortion is now just one of those things, especially if you’re not Catholic. Wrong maybe, but no big deal unless you’re Catholic? The New Prolife Movement in action.
Go here to comment. The crazy thing about Shea is that he very rarely acknowledges having written something that he wrote yesterday which completely contradicts what he wrote today. Unfortunately for him, the internet is forever, at least until Soros and his ideological think-a-likes get their mitts on it. That Shea has a strange new respect for Soros under the current pontificate is no surprise. Go here and here to understand why. When it comes to Soros, Mark is simply in the useful idiot category. There are darker forces however working ceaselessly during this pontificate to transform the Bride of Christ into the Whore of the Left.
