Not in my name!

Thanks to a post on Fr Ray Blake's blog I made a bad mistake and had a look at the Catholics for a Changing Church website.

Without wishing to be unkind and in the spirit of Christian charity - what a bunch of fruitcakes!

How can any organisation calling itself Catholic state: "[We] began as a protest movement against Humanae Vitae, Pope Paul VI’s encyclical in 1968, in which artificial means of contraception were banned"?

So, an organisation founded on dissent and disobedience is trying to mandate what should happen in the Church? Truly the words lunatics and asylum spring to mind.

I suspect their understanding of "Catholic" is somewhat different to mine.

These wallopers are now allying themselves with another bunch of bangers calling themselves "STANDUP4VATICAN2". Is that some sort of attempt at txt speak?

The best bit of the website however is the Executive Committee page which proves, beyond doubt, that "the Spirit of Vatican 2" belongs to a bygone era! Ageing hippies indeed!
