Confusion Spared

On the cancellation of Vatican’s Stem-Cell Conference:

I am infinitely relieved that the Church has avoided a major blunder which would have confused the faithful for decades to come.

Agreed. The faithful already know the modus operandi in such instances is to hire a speaker. The Temple Police complain. Speaker gets disinvited. People alternately crow or complain. Life goes on.

As for Rome, it makes ineffable sense that they wouldn’t stop with a speaker or two. Set up a conference on an important issue of the day, then cancel the whole darned thing.

I can attest truthfully that I have been spared any minutia of confusion on this matter. Same ol’ same ol’.

    Clerica break out in shingles in the face of ambiguity; laity live with it each day in their homes, jobs and social life.

    Church offices constantly view the faithful as so befuddled that, without unctuous instruction, they would confuse the holy water fountain with a birdbath.

    “Officially the international conference has been cancelled for financial reasons. But behind the scenes lurks some people’s grudge for the invitation of scientists in disagreement with the Holy See”
