Catholic Telegraph Writer Ditches Support of Church Teaching for the Sake of Her Reputation

"If I oppose gay marriage I may be seen as condoning his [Putin's] anti-gay campaign. I couldn't live with that".

"Woe to you when the world speaks well of you."
~ Jesus Christ

Has Christina applied for a job at The Tablet or something? Thanks Christina, for reminding us that there is more to life than a successful career and popularity and that you, at least, would make an awful lady priest.

Yes, I read the blog post too, and thought "What on earth has happened to her?" But to be fair, hardly any of her posts these days suggest that they were written by a Catholic (or even someone with a sound grasp of logic).

Hitler insisted the trains run on time. If I insist that British Rail keep to schedule I run the risk of being seen as a Nazi. Therefore, to distance myself from Adolph, I hold that the trains may arrive and depart any time they damn well please. Flawless logic?

Yes, totally irrational and without principle, never mind being in opposition to the doctrine of the one, true Faith, and Christ's commandments. She seems to have lost the understanding of objective truth. May she repent, seek absolution.

What's new? She's never really had a grasp of Catholicism. Everything she says and writes is Catholic-lite, indicative of many so-called Catholic media luvvies and a complete waste of space as far as writing goes.
I think it was Cardinal Hume who punned her surname as "the Odd One."

The desire for 'human respect' is powerful. We need only look at what's been happening since March 2013 to see that.

Has everyone forgotten her maniacal outburst on "Newsnight" on the evening of Pope Benedict's election? Who, other than the BBC and her own sweet self, has ever considered this woman a Catholic?

Liam - Hitler liked cream cakes therefore liking cream cakes is wrong. QED

Christina has strained her Catholicism before, to the point of marrying a divorcee. So if she's straining it now, it's not really a surprise. We should pray for her.

Cristina Odone is not the only Catholic writer adrift. On the very same day young Telegraph blogger Will Heaven (sic) has also taken leave of his senses. Someone must be setting their agenda.
When did she ever support Church teaching on marriage? Has she ditched the divorcee yet or is she still an adulteress?

I've heard the phrase 'diabolic disorientation' somewhere. If this isn't it I shudder to think of what it might be.
It's all sloughing away so alarmingly fast!

Christine Odone should try politics. Her desperation to be seen to 'support' the latest PC cause and garner favour with the more 'right-on' groups suggests she would fit right in. Any of the 3 mainstream parties would do - they all go through the same angst wondering what might be the best stance to take for the sake of their popularity. So removed from normality, people like Odone appear to be unaware of how transparent and cowardly they have become.

Sadly, the Catholic faith appears to be more of a useful accessory for her journalistic career.
