The Catholic Left Channels Pilate (and I'm not speaking metaphorically)

My pas­tor is gone for the week so Mon­day I attended my old parish for daily mass . It was the feast of Sts. Isaac Jogues and Rene Goupil who were mar­tyred in North Amer­ica by the Iroquois.

Dur­ing his ser­mon Fr. Leo talked St. Isaac’s first cap­tiv­ity (he was mar­tyred dur­ing his 2nd) and how he was com­forted by a book with com­men­tary on the let­ter to the Hebrews and regret­ted that unlike the saint so few Catholic take advan­tage of the trea­sure of scrip­ture sit­ting in their homes on a cof­fee table, even those who attend mass.

Never was I more made aware of this then today.

Ladies & Gen­tle­men meet Call to Actioncall to action

They describe their mis­sion as:

Call To Action edu­cates, inspires and acti­vates Catholics to act for jus­tice and build inclu­sive com­mu­ni­ties through a lens of anti-​racism and anti-​oppression principles.

As you might guess look­ing at their site their agenda is gay mar­riage, woman priests and abor­tion or as I call it “Catholics for Mor­tal Sin”

I’d never heard of them before but today while check­ing out the #catholic hash­tag I saw them tweet this out con­cern­ing the synod on the family.

While unfa­mil­iar with Catholic Call to Action I’m very famil­iar with Fr. Thomas Reese SJ and what he and other of the Catholic left have had to say about St. Pope John Paul II & Pope Bene­dict dur­ing their pon­tif­i­cates so I found this state­ment incred­i­bly ironic and said so.

This led to a long twit­ter exchange.

but while I find the whole “Catholic Left doesn’t want peo­ple diss­ing a the pope” busi­ness ironic, that was noth­ing com­pared to this

If both my asser­tion con­cern­ing Christ & Truth and their answer sounds famil­iar to you then con­grat­u­la­tions, unlike Catholic call to action you’re famil­iar with the pas­sion & know your scrip­ture:

Jesus answered, “My king­dom does not belong to this world. If my king­dom did belong to this world, my atten­dants (would) be fight­ing to keep me from being handed over to the Jews. But as it is, my king­dom is not here.” So Pilate said to him, “Then you are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say I am a king. For this I was born and for this I came into the world, to tes­tify to the truth. Every­one who belongs to the truth lis­tens to my voice.” Pilate said to him, “What is truth?” (empha­sis mine) John 18:36-38a

I couldn’t believe me eyes so I called them on it

Think about that for a sec­ond A group that calls itself “catholic” yet dis­putes the doc­trines of the church claim­ing they were “devel­oped exclu­sively by older white men from Europe” when chal­lenged by the propo­si­tion that Christ offered Truth answered with the very words that Pilate pro­nounced upon hand­ing him over for crucifixion.

It’s one thing to dis­pute the truth of Christ’s church, it’s another to use Pilate’s own words to do it. And these guys are going to per­suade actual mass going Catholics to go along with them?

Seri­ously you can’t make this stuff up, you just can’t.

Update I answered their last tweet with a very sim­ple question

As of this writ­ing 21 hours later this “Catholic” group has no answer.

Update 2: Wow, just wow! That answer deserves its own post

My pastor is gone for the week so Monday I attended my old parish for daily mass .  It was the feast of Sts. Isaac Jogues and Rene Goupil who were martyred in North America by the Iroquois.

During his sermon Fr. Leo talked St. Isaac’s first captivity (he was martyred during his 2nd) and how he was comforted by a book with commentary on the letter to the Hebrews and regretted that unlike the saint so few Catholic take advantage of the treasure of scripture sitting in their homes on a coffee table, even those who attend mass.

Never was I more made aware of this then today.

Ladies & Gentlemen meet Call to Actioncall to action

They describe their mission as:

Call To Action educates, inspires and activates Catholics to act for justice and build inclusive communities through a lens of anti-racism and anti-oppression principles.

As you might guess looking at their site their agenda is gay marriage, woman priests and abortion or as I call it “Catholics for Mortal Sin”

I’d never heard of them before but today while checking out the #catholic hashtag I saw them tweet this out concerning the synod on the family.

While unfamiliar with Catholic Call to Action I’m very familiar with Fr. Thomas Reese SJ and what he and other of the Catholic left have had to say about St. Pope John Paul II & Pope Benedict during their pontificates so I found this statement incredibly ironic and said so.

This led to a long twitter exchange.

but while I find the whole “Catholic Left doesn’t want people dissing a the pope” business ironic, that was nothing compared to this

If both my assertion concerning Christ & Truth and their answer sounds familiar to you then congratulations, unlike Catholic call to action you’re familiar with the passion &  know your scripture

Jesus answered, “My kingdom does not belong to this world. If my kingdom did belong to this world, my attendants (would) be fighting to keep me from being handed over to the Jews. But as it is, my kingdom is not here.” So Pilate said to him, “Then you are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say I am a king. For this I was born and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice.” Pilate said to him, “What is truth?” (emphasis mine) John 18:36-38a

I couldn’t believe me eyes so I called them on it

Think about that for a second A group that calls itself “catholic” yet disputes the doctrines of the church claiming they were “developed exclusively by older white men from Europe” when challenged by the proposition that Christ offered Truth answered with the very words that Pilate pronounced upon handing him over for crucifixion.

It’s one thing to dispute the truth of Christ’s church, it’s another to use Pilate’s own words to do it.  And these guys are going to persuade actual mass going Catholics to go along with them?

Seriously you can’t make this stuff up, you just can’t.
