IT WAS INEVITABLE
Abe Foxman isn't happy.
The bishops aren't happy.
It's all Sungenis's fault.
There are times when my religion just leaves me shaking my head in cynical disgust. This is another one of them.
Why should the Jews be given a stake in the wording of the Roman Catholic Catechism?
When dual covenant theology was obviously Robert Sungenis's issue, why do the bishops try so hard to claim it was not?
The catechism was corrected. Dual covenant theology was tossed. Jesus Christ was defended. Now comes the USCCB claiming:
the statement about the Moses covenant was not wrong, just ambiguous and misunderstood.
Phuleeeeese!! Misunderstood? What could have been misunderstood? Either we believe Jesus Christ came to save all, or we believe there are two covenants. You can't have it both ways, and the Jews are not going to like the Catholic way. Don't the bishops understand anything?
I wish they would stop trying to talk out of both sides of their mouth and stand up to defend Jesus Christ. It doesn't seem like a lot to ask.
Credibility, guys...it doesn't come with the miter. It has to be earned after the way you behaved over sexual abuse of minors!
