Swimming against the tide

Swimming against the tide......

IMHO, this is Vatican Doublespeak. It is not about the rising tide of *Secularism* that b16 and the episcopacy are concerned. It is about their frustration with the larger and growing larger number of Catholics and non-Catholics who continually pay less and less attention to their so-called teachings/sayings. The possibility of this effort bringing them results is about the same as the *Catholics Come Home*  program effort in the USA. As it is not possible to dialogue with them, people eventually begin to ignore them, which is when people win, bishops lose.

However, it will give the Good Old Boys an opportunity to drink excellent wine and dine on fine cuisine at the faithful*s expense. They probably fly First Class, too. Some aspects of a bishops life are quite good.

However, I’m not complaining – tomorrow is Half Price Slice day at my favorite pizza parlor!
