[Excerpt] In the English speaking world, in the wake of the withdrawal of speaking gig invitations to Jesuit Father James Martin, Jesuits and their allies have coagulated. They now pour it on, to create a critical mass of hatred against those Catholics who stick up for clear traditional moral teaching. That means that their well-established Big Jesuit Machine, and those who aid and abet their agendas, are picking on the little guy who dares to raise their heads to object.
The other thing I thought about as I read the Bishop’s unfortunate phrase is that Our Lady of Fatima warned about sins against chastity.
Our Lady said:
“More souls go to Hell because of sins of the flesh than for any other reason.”
That was exactly 100 years ago. Human nature hasn’t changed since then and sins against chastity are far more widespread now than they were then and even more horrifying. It sound to me as if the Mother of God thinks that chastity is more than “very important”. It might even be “singularly” important, given the stakes.
