Soldiers for Christ...

...only fight battles they can win?

If what the Bishop of Arundel and Brighton says is true, it explains quite a lot about the Bishops' Conference's lack of willingness to boldly fight and proclaim the truth on a range of issues including...

Abortion...
Human Embryology Research...
Civil Partnerships...
Mental Capacity Act...
Equalities Act...


...which battle did we win?...which battle did we try to win? All is pretty mild on the SSM front too.

Thank God we didn't think like this at Lepanto...

I think most of out Bishops and priests need a Master Class in courageous sacrificial love and service by someone like you - basically, a reminder of what they were ordained to do, and of their most solemn duty. Most of them seem to have forgotten why it is that we are called the Church Militant.

And Usury. There was an encyclical about that, which is a restatement of the biblic teaching on the subject. Everyone seems to have conveniently forgotten.
