Tough Love for Bishop Stephen E. Blaire
The relentless pursuit of the truth - www.cinopsbegoneblogspot.com - Tues. May 29, 2012
Let’s try to decipher and explain the fears of Bishop Blaire of the Diocese of Stockton, California. First of all, I am happy to report that I put Bishop Stephen E. Blair on my e-mail list I believe a couple of months ago. Now, I am referring to the three article that appeared on http://calcatholic.com, 5/28/2012 titled: A- Bishop Blaire calls for more discussions - B- Church getting co-opted by political right - C- Who speaks for California Bishops? 43 Catholic groups including 13 of 195 diocese filed a lawsuit to overturn Obama regulations in the new health care law, the Health and Human Services Mandate. (HHSM)
Bishop Blaire is worried that some groups on “very far to the right” are trying to use the conflict on the HHS mandate as “an anti-Obama campaign”. First of all, the term “very far to the right” is a term used by the politically correct culture of death advocates in America. Some within the Catholic church use the term to protect their liberal ideas as “religiously correct.” The term “very far to the right” refers to Catholics groups like myself that are strongly, pro-life, pro-marriage and pro-family. [ May I add that the word clinic should never be attached to Planned Parenthood. It is a site, facility or abortion mill. I am aware of this because I have been at abortion mills twice weekly for over 16 years.]
And in spite of progressivism, political or religious, America is happily today 50% pro-life and 41% pro-choice. Also, once we return to common sense, it was a mistake for Catholics to have voted for Clinton twice for president and a disaster for Obama in 2008.
Also, fundamentally the difference between President Obama and President Reagan is that Obama is a proud food stamp president and that President Reagan would be so ashamed that he would have resigned rather than be known as a food stamp president. Reagan was a job creator. He was not a person who wants to change the very nature and character of an American with anti-Christian pro-abortion & same-sex marriage agendas.
“According to Bishop Blaire, attorneys for California dioceses “did have some concerns with this strategy.” Well the attorneys outside of California felt otherwise. And why did not the California lawyers pursue this matter of the violation of the religious rights, conscience, and mission of the Catholic Church in California (which the State did) to the Supreme Court years ago?
Thank God this presidential election will not be decided in California. Bishop Blaire has a lot of work to do in California. Morally and financially the state is a Greek basket case.
One commentator (Mike) posted May 28, 2012 - 5:53 AM as follows: “Bishop Blaire has not done a great job in CA (along with some other CA Bishops). CA has more pro-abortion politicians, pro-gay marriage politicians, politicians who support relativism (no right and wrong), politicians who waste taxpayer dollars making it impossible to pay State debt load (CCC 2411), … than any other state in the U.S.A. When the CA Bishops have a State with moral results they can point to … then they can make recommendations to others.
“Until then, they need to mind their own Diocese. The leftist Bishops in Ca have dominated far too long and look at the mess we are in. Elected politicians determine the legal morality of the USA, along with judges they appoint. Blaire has no knowledge of how the country works, or merely wants the immoral anti-Catholic Socialist to remain in control.”
