What A Difference A Decade Makes

Ten years ago today, I linked John Allen quoting a bishop about the 2005 synod.

I wonder why in the hell they brought us here and put us through all this, to say absolutely nothing more than what has been painfully said for decades.

A few things …

  • The link is gone, and I don’t remember who said it, but I wonder if that guy didn’t get invited to the 2008 synod.
  • Clearly, this year’s synod bishops would be unanimous in disagreeing with that sentiment.

    Amy Welborn’s late husband had a somewhat longer quote

    I think this synod will be categorized along with the infamous Synod of Pistoia and the “Robber Council” of Patristic times. If the press reports are to be believed, this banana republic-like meeting is an unholy brew of bizarre sexual practices being advocated or defended. I think all we’re missing is open advocacy of bestiality and swinging, but give Cardinals Kasper and Marx time, there are still a few days to go. But perhaps the animals will be spared due to Laudato Sii still being fresh off the presses.

    This whole wicked experience has given me a new insight into the minds of Caiaphas and Annas.

    FrM, you are just too silly today. And sex-obsessed. Take a walk somewhere peaceful, dude, and stop reading online reports.
