I saw that liberal and biased 60 Minutes was interviewing Boston’s archbishop, Cardinal Sean O’Malley, a Franciscan who is friends with our Holy Father. I taped it and then watched and then screamed.
Liberal and biased reporter Norah O’Donnell, displaying the attitude of the anti-Catholic media, asked an apparently willing O’Malley a series of obnoxious questions which mostly focused on the sex abuse scandal, which is now a non-issue. I hate to break it to her (and him) but the scandal is long over. Most of the abuse happened up to a half century ago and there are very few incidents reported anymore despite the grasping plaintiffs’ attorneys who are desperate to make a buck.
O’Malley’s accomplishments in addressing the abuse scandal’s fallout over a decade ago may be commendable. I can see why he wanted to talk about it back in the day. But why he would want to answer questions and why the reporter would ask them in 2014 when there is no acute problem is mystifying. Except that we know CBS and O’Donnell have an agenda.
How do I know? I can tell from Ms. O’Donnell’s other impertinent questions. She asked if not allowing women to become priests was “immoral”. Immoral? Let her ask an imam whether women and men praying in different rooms of the mosque is sexist and thus immoral. She doesn’t have an axe to grind against the Muslims and she values her pretty head, which she positioned frequently in that condescending way where we she shows her disdain for the Church.
She, like O’Malley, seems eager for the Church to change. Newsflash: dogma cannot change. Truth is truth. If they don’t believe, they need to find a door to make their exit.
O’Malley struggled but eventually got out the right answer. God became man in Jesus Christ. God chose to only have men be priests in the image of His Son. Not women. That does not mean we who are women are unequal. It just means that God chose men to be eligible to be priests. The implication of the questions was that the Church is sexist and discriminatory. It is not true but don’t tell that to O’Malley.
As he struggled, he ended his statement by saying that God founded His Church with only men being able to be priests. However, perhaps to placate O’Donnell or perhaps because he feels this way or both, he said if he were founding a church, he would let women be priests. Yes, that is right–he is disagreeing with God Himself!
While liberals, especially in the media, are obsessed with the Church changing, they will be forever disappointed. God through His Son, Jesus Christ, established the Church as is. Jesus is Truth and there is no changing the Truth to suit the fashion of the times. Why O’Malley–and I hope this was the result of editing–would think he could improve upon God’s design is shocking and disappointing, especially since he claims to be best friends with our beloved but confounding pope.
Where is Cardinal Burke when you need him? 60 Minutes should interview him to learn the truth. Unfortunately, they are not interested.
