“… a heretical nun or a traitorous priest or bishop when they see one – not so they can vote them out of office, but so they can pray for them, one, and alert as many other Catholics as possible to their treachery.”
By traitors and heretics, Voris seems to mean people who don’t agree with his fundamentalist views of Catholic doctrine.
But when you narrow the definition of what it means to be a Catholic, guess what you get? Fewer Catholics, that’s what.
So it’s kinda funny to listen to Voris give a talk at the Canadian Christian College in Toronto, and hear him sound the alarm over how Catholics, in countries where they once wielded real power by numbers, are abandoning the pews in droves. He never seems to connect the holier-than-thou activism of hardliners like himself to that steady exodus.
The fun starts at 42:40, when he talks about parish closures.
