Conservative vs. Traditional

110621 - Review of Podcast

I’ve listened to the first 5 minutes and still don’t know the difference between conservative versus traditional Catholics. JPII made McCarrick a Cardinal. Benedict and Francis allowed him to stay in office. Joe Paterno took the blame for Sandusky, but Catholics are hesitant to de-canonize JPII. Until the McCarrick cover-up is recognized as a crime, the Church will continue to be led by the Devil. Wake up, Catholics. Clericalism reigns supreme with zero regard for the truth or for the laity. Every Bishop must resign and then re-submit their application to become a bishop to a diocesan lay committee. The Church is founded by Christ and led by the Holy Spirit. Like the Grand Inquisitor, a return to the primitive Church will harm clerics who have made a fortune on the backs of a naive laity. I refuse to fund any fund-raising that gives money to a diocese. I support Catholic prison ministries, local pro-life ministries and all local “Matthew 25” efforts to help the physically and spiritually outcasts.

The Quality and Substance Shows

Crisis Magazine is intellectually and stylistically first rate and this podcast reflects those standards. The same ideas, presented with passion and persuasion, make the podcast good enough to sacrifice my greatest asset, my scarce time. Thank you and congratulations on your excellent work.
