Another "Catholic" Subversive Traitor Shows Herself

On Christmas, of all days.

Yesterday's Tribune-Review had an article on the Diocese of Pittsburgh using TV and radio ads at this time of year to encourage inactive Catholics to participate more actively in the Church. A "sister" has used the occasion to reveal herself:

Sister Barbara Finch, a member of the Pittsburgh chapter of Call to Action a group advocating for changes in the Roman Catholic Church said that welcoming people to return to church is a good idea. She added, however, the diocese's welcome should include an invitation for gay and lesbian Catholics, divorced parishioners, priests who have married and others excluded by Catholic doctrine.
"Are you only welcoming people if they play by your rules?" said Sister Finch, a member of the Sisters of St. Joseph who attends St. Paul of the Cross Monastery on the South Side. "Jesus accepted people where they were and then challenged and loved them into fuller communication with him."

Well. How do you like that for mindless psychobabbling gobbledygook?

Fortunately, a diocesan priest was quoted in reply:

Wehner said that "it would be unfortunate if people used a moment like this for those very things that we are against, which is being divisive."
"This is about people who want to practice their faith in the Catholic Church, wanting to worship Jesus Christ. Our efforts are not meant to be exclusive, political or divisive," he said.

Right on!
