Truth be told...or not!

Dad29 tells me that the open-minded, pride of Milwaukee priest, Fr. Paul Stanosz with his blog "Church in Hospice" has decided to show the stripes of real Archdiocese of Milwaukee dialogue...he has shut down the comments function on his blog.

So Fr. Paul, you want to dish it out about everyone else, but can't really stand the heat of contrary opinion? Who is dumbing things down now?

Mike I had actually posted a response on Fr. Stanosz's blog last week. He had a post ( I think its still out there) in which he undermined church teaching on all-male priesthood. It was pretty clear from his post that he was sympathetic to female priests. I responded with a brief description of what JPII wrote about it, that the all-male priesthood is an authoritative teaching not to be debated by serious Catholics.

The next day Fr. Stanosz responded to my comment. He said that he did not explicitly advocate female priests, that he was only acting as a social scientist in his statements on the issue.

I attempted to respond (among other things I wanted to question his bizarre leadership style - commenting as a social scientist?? huh?) but by that time he had turned the commentary feature off.

He did not "explicitly" advocate something. There, my friends, is the battle cry of those who are: a) aware that there goal cannot really be supported; and b) they really lack the courage to make their (inadequate) case forthrightly.

I agree Mike, one of the things I stated on Fr. Stanosz's blog was that he should directly address why he thinks there should be female priests. Instead he couches his support for female priests as one of several solutions to a problem (which I have no idea whether is true) of the declining intellectual capabilities of priests in the U.S.

In fairness to Fr. Stanosz, I should make a correction. He did not say 'I did not explicitly advocate female priests' in his response, which of course would make him seem extremely disingenuous. He basically just said 'I did not advocate female priests' or something like that.

But my interpretation of what he wrote is still that he does indeed support female priests, but for whatever reason will not say it directly. I mean why else would someone say something as snide as: "The Church appears to prefer modestly gifted men who promise celibacy over brighter women or men who want to marry." Believing what we believe the Church to be, why would any Catholic priest talk that way?
