Whooee! The post on Voris stirred up that hornet’s nest. To be fair, most of the comments were rational and a there was what I like to call ‘a frank exchange of views’.
However there was a fair bit of poison too. Here is a selection of the juicier contributions to my combox from Michael Voris supporters:
Also it is important to note that Voris has never claimed to prophesize anything. I think he just say’s things as he sees them…I guess the truth is too much for “Fr” Dwight Longenecker! Maybe Fr. Dwight became a priest for all the wrong reasons. Heed Pope Francis’ warning when he says careerist Catholics need to find humility. Jesus speaks about hypocrites a lot and he has nothing good to say about them.
We need Michael Voris a lot more than the filth that has infiltrated the Church and Pope Francis’ word echo from Michael Voris’ mouth when he said that we should live for worldliness or careerist. Bishops have become increasingly weak in their stance against the filth within. The Church of nice is rotten.
I can’t believe this blog by Fr Longenecker. I think he has not idea how bad things really are in the Church, and how deep the corruption and decay goes. If he had even a clue of what is going on, he would be a subscriber to Voris’s material. Also, if you make over one hundred thousand dollars a year, don’t be begging for money. Take a cut in salary. What is your salary, Fr. Longenecker?
Capitalizing on Jesus eh Fr. Longnecker? Thou protesteth too much. Try reading Denzinger.
Do we need Michael Voris? Yes, we need many more like him. We see the mess Michael talks about. I saw the mess years before I ever heard of Michael Voris. The real question is why are priests, like Father Dwight Longenecker, not trying to clean up the mess? God bless Michael Voris and his team!
You’re a liar Father. Your headlines speak volumes you are talking about him personally. Your experiences with know it all’s in feel good groups speaks to your protestant up bringing. When you become a real Catholic then you can lecture us on what is and isn’t appropriate for a Catholic.
blah blah blah blah blah… “I’m so educated and know so much more about theology than anyone else does I’m a Priest and can dis the faithful because I’m soooo educated.” In the words of Padre Pio “Go to Hell”‘
Voris criticizes the “Church of Nice” at least these folks can rest assured that they do not belong to that category.
