More "Catholic" Hypocrisy

A Pennsylvanis based organization calling itself the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property (TFP) ran full page ads in The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times and The Washington Times on Thursday bearing the title "Battling for America’s Soul: How Homosexual “Marriage” Threatens Our Nation and Faith—TFP Urges Lawful and Conscientious Resistance." Among other things and after citing numerous Catholic Church statements, some issued by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (f/n/a, the Inquisition), these ads stated:
We must join the Crusade like many who “preceded us with the sign of faith.” Unlike the Crusades of old, ours is not physical, but spiritual. Being part of this spiritual crusade means being an untiring apostle for marriage and the family; to never lose an opportunity to tell others—family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers—that homosexual acts and same-sex “marriage” are wrong, unnatural and “intrinsically evil.”
It is clear, therefore, that the battle for marriage in America is the clash of two worldviews. On the one hand, those Americans who still defend a moral law. On the other, the homosexual revolution and its secularist allies. The stakes are also clear. This is a battle for the soul of America. The so-called Cultural War is gradually becoming a Religious War. For one cannot modify the lex agendi (rules of morals) without thereby modifying the lex credendi (rules of belief) given the profound relationship between the two. He who accepts as good and even exalts homosexual practice cannot adore the true and living God who destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah because of that sin. (Gen. 18-19)
Not surprisingly, and in all too typical form for self-styled "devout Catholics" who blather on and on about supporting the Roman Catholic Church, I can find no evidence that TFP has taken even the slightest step to demand that the Vatican clean house and remove from office all bishops and cardinals (and perhaps the Pope) who enabled and/or covered up the sexual abuse of minors. Rather, all too typically, TFP seems to have its nose stuck up the Vatican's and hierarchy's ass to the point of near suffocation. What kind of Kool-Aid are they dispensing?.
