If TKC understands Vatican doctrine correctly, this week the Pope told the world to enjoy gay sex without guilt and it confused the Hell out of everybody. That might be an oversimplification but the funny hat distracted most American cafeteria Catholics.
More importantly . . .
ONE OF KANSAS CITY'S MOST OUTSPOKEN FAITH LEADERS DENOUNCED VEEP BIDEN ON ABORTION AND LOCAL MEDIA HAS KEPT SILENT ON THE ELECTION 2020 CRISIS OF CONSCIENCE FOR CATHOLICS!!!
To be fair, there's no guidance from Holy Mother Church about the former game show host who has an alleged penchant for raw-dogging sex workers.
Still, as a matter of policy over sexy proclivities, Prez Trump is strongly aligned with the Catholic argument against abortion. Just this week the Trump administration signed an anti-abortion declaration on Thursday with 30 other countries, including conservative and authoritarian governments in Egypt, Uganda, Belarus, Saudi Arabia and Hungary.
Closer to home, hidden inside this screed is a SCATHING REBUKE OF VEEP BIDEN with a local connection . . .
Local money line and a quote from one of the most outspoken Kansas City metro faith leaders . . .
"Archbishop Joseph Naumann of Kansas City, chairman of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops' Committee on Pro-Life Activities, challenged Biden's stated position. The former vice president once said he believed in the sanctity of life. "Believing that an unborn child is an innocent human life and supporting the rights of others to kill this innocent child is anything but thoughtful," said Naumann. "It is intellectually and morally an incoherent position."
The statement offers clarity that speaks to many people of faith. The strong words are exactly the kind of leadership the Church needed when they knowingly transferred so many scumbag priests not so long ago.
Nevertheless, this vote offers a clean slate for Catholics, voters and our fellow Americans . . . So that we can, inevitably, repeat all of our former sins yet again.
