Self-styled “faithful” Catholics ejected from church by police. What to say about it? I’m aware of the use of public prayer as a means of protest. I’m skeptical on it. I’m not sure I would label it a “profanation.” Boorish behavior, perhaps.
Observing the Reformation is a difficult thing for a lot of people. Still. Maybe that’s a good thing. People who are bothered might have good reason to feel that way. Christian unity, or lack thereof, should be a grave concern to all of us. Does disunity damage one’s status as saved? Does the hard line for or against Luther merit imitation?
This is pretty much lose-lose for the protesters. If there’s a hope that heretics will return to the Church, I’m not sure that rude behavior will inspire them to face=palm and ask, “How could we have been so blind these five centuries?” If it chases people away, Jesus’ words in Luke 17:1-2 might apply:
Things that cause sin will inevitably occur, but woe to the person through whom they occur. It would be better for him if a millstone were put around his neck and he be thrown into the sea than for him to cause one of these little ones to sin.
And that’s not good.
