Firefly references aside, this is again symptomatic of the growing epidemic of disobedience acting as a cancer within our Church. Priests like this are the reason why there is so much confusion regarding Catholic teaching anymore. How long have priests like this been speaking out against the Church from pulpits, in classrooms, in the confessionals? How many souls have they confused with their willful disobedience to the Holy See? I shudder to think of it!
Now all priests are entitled to their opinions on the workings of things. If they see errors within the Church, it is their right to address those things that give them pause. This defiant act of arrogance, however, is an entirely different beast.
If I took issue with workplace policies, I wouldn't write up an essay decrying offenses and my personal path to rectify the issues, posting it for everyone to see. I'm relatively certain I'd be fired (and rightly so!) for causing so much trouble when a simple conversation could've been had between myself and my superiors. Instead, these priests are encouraging others to accept disobedience as acceptable on the basis of pride... arrogance! This is EXACTLY the problem I have with the whole Fr. Corapi debaucle. Shameful... these men need prayers, as do their superiors who are faced with the question of what to do with them. I pray they have the guts to excommunicate every single one of them for firing off such blatant heresy.
Again, people want to change the Catholic Faith to fit their own whims. That's NOT how Catholicism works. Accept that you're not Catholic and move on. Don't drag others into your hellish cycle, please.
I find it interesting, however, that folks refuse to just leave the Catholic faith. I think somewhere, deep inside, they know the Church of Rome is the True Church of Christ. As a result, they want to constantly alter teaching to validate their own beliefs while "staying true to the Church." Again, the Church cannot and will not ever change teachings on faith or morals. Why? Because the Church ever echoes the Word of God, and His Word never changes. Thus, our teachings on faith and morals will never change either.
SO STOP TRYING!
