Here are those links …

    Has anybody kept track of how many homilies there were against SSM; i.e. from the pulpit on Sunday morning and/or in the bulletin, who were the priests who gave them, and did they ask their parishioners to get involved and contact their assembly people and senators? Yes, I know there is a careful line to walk in this, but it is never wrong to remind people seriously of the Church’s teaching. It would be interesting to see the list of the yea and nay answers to this question.

    Good catch! The link is now fixed.

    Today’s NY Times identifies Alesi as a worshipper at Spiritus Christi…so what was all this talk about his being a Catholic?

    190145’s opinion may be correct and there may also be some benefit for venting that idea out in the public.
    But the story isn’t completed with that. In the end, we won’t be asked about what everybody else didn’t do — but rather “what did you do about it”?

    We might say “I complained about the bad bishop, priests and lay Catholics in the comment box on a blog”. Ok, let’s just call that “a start”. If it doesn’t go much farther than that, then I wouldn’t call it the kind of fruit that Our Lord is looking for.

    Fact — the Church leadership and majority of Catholics in the Rochester area are weak, corrupted, lame, apostates, useless, evil, ignorant, sacrilegious and worse …

    Your job and my job is to do everything we can to fix that.

    If you disagree with something I said, you might consider offering your own point of view.
    As I said elsewhere, there’s no logical or rational defense for gay marriage – especially from the Catholic position.
    If you don’t agree, you should try to defend yourself and try to convince me otherwise.
    As it stands, you’re making a personal judgement about me — and I’m not the topic here. Needless to say, I’m not setting myself up as anything other than myself. You might think that I appear to be some kind of “god” but that’s a pretty wild exaggeration, at best.

    Have we identified him as a Catholic? I thought we said he attended Spiritus? What he said when he ran – I don’t know.

    I don’t think enough attention has been paid to the excellent Michael Voris segment on gay bishops and priests as the cause of failure to fight more strongly against SSD, and how duped are the people in the pew. The link is:

    You are setting yourself up as a god as others have said. Did God drop dead and leave you as boss?? (god)??? Your judgements on the Church (aka people of God) in the Rochester diocese are rash and uninformed as well as arrogant and presumptive. Rather than be overly critical of you, I would suggest that you discuss this matter with your spiritual director or confessor. Peace be to you.

    Anonymous II — I appreciate your opinion, but you offer no basis for your rash notions at all. You’re just making wild claims about me, and you don’t know anything about me.
    Again, if you disagree with my views, you should try to convince me that I’m wrong. Instead, you’re just offering insulting personal comments – calling me “arrogant” and “uninformed”.
    If you are, supposedly, informed about these matters, then share your information with me.
    You claim that you don’t want to be “overly critical of me” (although you already have been) but again — I am not the topic here.
    Just discuss the topic. Let me know what your views on the issues are.
    What is your point?
    What do you disagree with in what I said?
    Why do you think it’s possible for God to “drop dead”?
    Do you support Same-Sex Marriage? If so, how do you reconcile that with the Catholic Faith?

    Those are just a few of the questions you could try to discuss. Instead, you’ve decided to discuss my own personal life, which again, you know nothing about.
    That’s not a very good way to have a discussion, don’t you think?
