Defining Freedom … — Filosofa’s Word

Have you noticed that some words seem to have taken on a different meaning in the past few years than they once had? Take, for example, the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF). It sounds like a decent organization, right? Let’s break it down a bit … Alliance: a union or association formed for mutual benefit Defending: […]

Again Jill has gotten to the point of a subject and showed it clearly for what it is.   A great read from a grand author.   Hugs

Dominican Cardinal Tells U.S. Ambassador to ‘Take His Gay Pride Elsewhere’| Gay News | Towleroad

What ever happened to Christian charity, forgiveness, and not judging others?  Then again when you learn what a bishop makes a month in salary it puts the notion of vow of poverty to incredible shame.   I recently read of the ego and the huge amounts some Bishops, cardinals and others have spent on their personal comfort and to impress the others in their community.   All things I would hope they were above.  The POPE even had to relieve one Bishop it was so blatant.   Then this guy has the never to talk about and even lecture the diplomat on the meaning of diplomacy, all the while insulting and slurring him in the most negative fashion.  This says more about the horrid state of the Church than it ever will about the ambassador.  Hugs

DOMINICAN CARDINAL TELLS U.S. AMBASSADOR TO ‘TAKE HIS GAY PRIDE ELSEWHERE’

Nicolás de Jesús López Rodríguez, a Catholic Cardinal from the Dominican Republic who haspreviously referred to U.S. Ambassador James “Wally” Brewster as a maricón (Spanish slur for “faggot”), is again voicing his displeasure with the idea of an openly gay man serving as ambassador to his Caribbean nation.

Dominican Today reports:

Cardinal Nicolas de Jesus Lopez Rodríguez on Thursday again railed against the openly gay U.S. Ambassador, asking James Brewster to “take his pride elsewhere,” and reminded him that diplomacy is used to promote relations, moral values, trade agreements and mutual cooperation among the world’s countries.

“Diplomacy is not for that sort of thing, an absolutely negative propaganda,” the Archbishop of Santo Domingo told reporters who asked about a video released by the U.S. Embassy, where Brewster and his husband Bob Satawake promote the celebration of “Gay Pride Month” in June.

The cardinal spoke after heading a mass to mark Corpus Christi in San Antonio parish, in the Gazcue sector.

“I am totally against that, everybody knows it, my position is not new, not because this man with this kind of attitude has now arrived.”

When Brewster was first nominated last year, a group of conservative Dominican Republic religious leaders organized a ‘black armband’ protest against what was seen as an “insult to good Dominican customs”

“To be fair, much of the Bible is not systematically evil but just plain weird, as you would expect of a chaotically cobbled-together anthology of disjointed documents, composed, revised, translated, distorted and ‘improved’ by hundreds of anonymous authors, editors and copyists, unknown to us and mostly unknown to each other, spanning nine centuries”  ..
