|The smug visage of a spiritually dry man|
So. Our Christmas present from the Holy Father is none other than Donald Cardinal Wuerl, who will now be more influential than he ever was in appointing new Bishops.
George Neumyer writes about the smug Cardinal at the American Spectator.
The "Jadot Faction" has returned with a vengeance. It was the extremely strange Jean Jadot who gave us such exemplary prelates as John Quinn, Kenneth Untener, Raymond Hunthausen, Peter Gerety, Bernard Law, James Hickey and Rembert Weakland among other notables.
These men were called Jadot's, well....."boys". I wonder why?
Now we have the homo-friendly Donald Wuerl influencing new Bishops. His decisions will be with us for a long time. Apparently that certain Mafia in the Church - the one that Pope Francis said that he would see what he could do about it - is still more than a little influential.
He has risen to the position because of his service to the Church we are told. One example of that service was his public humiliation and hounding of a good priest for refusing Holy Communion to an obnoxious, extremely fat and loud-mouthed lesbian Buddhist last year.
Why do men such as Wuerl rise to such prominence in the Holy Catholic Church?
Why in a stagnant pond does scum rise to the top?
