A Flying Buttress Alert

Pilarczyk in bed with the enemy, once again!

+We’ve aroused ourselves briefly from our long summer’s nap to inform our readers of the following notice, which appeared on a Voice of the Faithful discussion board:

For information, two of our Greater Cincinnati Coordinating Committee will meet next Wednesday, July 19 [2006], with Archbishop Daniel Pilarczyk of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. We asked for this meeting in a Pentecost letter to the AB where we asked what we could do to help him with his parishes and pastors.

We are hopeful that this will lead to continuing dialogue with both the AB and his staff, and that he will agree with a pilot project with one or more parishes where we will attempt to assist the pastor, and staff, with projects of most importance to them.

We are testing a survey where we attempt to identify skills and experience that we can utilize in this project. If successful, we will re-energize our membership, and provide a useful service to out [sic] parishes.

Wish us well,

Dick Okenfuss”

+In response to this, we’d like to ask the Archbishop a few questions:

+Your Excellency, have you somehow missed the fact that VOTF is a Trojan horse whose real mission is to perpetrate another lay investiture in the Church? Or is lay investiture just another of your sub rosa “spirit of Vatican II” initiatives?

+Your Excellency, have you somehow missed the fact that VOTF, despite its fraudulent claim to be “faithful to the Church’s teaching,” takes the outrageous claims of the “DaVinci Code” seriously? And, while feigning fidelity, disagrees with the “the exclusion of homosexuals from the priesthood”? Or does their dissent on this teaching guarantee them a free pass in all Lavender Mafia dioceses?

+Your Excellency, what “assistance” could this dangerous group possibly render to your pastors and their parishes? Are you hiding even more sex offenders in your closet?

+Your Excellency, why would you invite this subversive organization into your Archdiocese, yet refuse an offer of assistance made by the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter?

Dear Reader, spiritual malfeasance and deconstruction continues unabated in our Archdiocese. Please pray for the restoration of orthodoxy in Cincinnati.
