Theologian critical of bishop selection process

Jun 30, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Connecticut Post

A professor at Fairfield University has criticized the process of choosing a new bishop for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Bridgeport, saying it's geared less to finding a leader committed to the faithful of Fairfield County than to choosing a man who will rise high in the ranks of the Church.

Uh oh. Lakeland's gonna pop-up on Ratzi's Radar like this guy - http://www.topix.com/forum/religion/catholic/... - and then it'll be all over!

'The Sheep' actually thinking that THEY should have some input on matters concerning them. Scandalous! Excommunicate them all!(and then sell them indulgences saying they can get back 'in' with God again - most of them ARE pretty DUMB sheep)

The Catholic Church hasn't sold indulgences for centuries now. Dis on the Catholic Church as you do so freely on these threads. Just know that when your facts are off your bigot undies show and you just appear like well a bigot.

Don't forget that selling indulgences doesn't seem to have ever been a licit practice in the first place.

Unfortunately licit or not it was enough to set Martin Luther off and what came after was not pretty.

Pax, again I learn something from you. I didn't know the church stopped selling indulgences, which is something which should never have been allowed in the first place. So - Luther wasn't wrong about everything.

Oh, husband and I had to go to a funeral today (yeah, on a Sunday) and it wore us both out. One of my cousin's husbands died. I was Maid of Honor at their wedding in '64. Husband and I both had a hard time walking but at least we went.

Pax, you're a wonderful person and very valuable to me, I want you to know that.
