Appropriately Named Columnist Responds to Catholics who Thought Bishop Should Actually Teach and Live Catholic Faith

Lotsa people wrote to tell Pete Goering his last column was idiotic. Some of you guys are named and quoted in his response, so you might want to check it out. The Senator in the last paragraph has apparently never heard this biblical passage: “Do not think that I have come to bring peace on earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; and a man’s foes will be those of his own household. He who loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; and he who loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me; and he who does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for my sake will find it. – Matthew 10:34-39

This sort of talk makes, go-along get-along bureaucrats, whether bishops or politicos, very nervous. Tough.

Nice job, all you guys that wrote him!
