The Enemy Within

Imagine, if you will, an organization called “Catholics for Choice.” If your brain hasn’t exploded trying to make sense of that, consider this quote from its president:

The real fear that haunts conservatives is that in a month, when Pope Francis reconvenes the Synod on the Family, it’s possible that Francis’ spirit may open up a conversation among the bishops about family as it really is lived, not imagined by the celibate clergy. Maybe as the bishops push forward with the Synod on the Family, a miracle could happen and some change could come — change that reflects the reality that is the church today. I don’t think that would be a bad thing at all.

By all means, let’s base our religious faith on the practices of imperfect humans rather than on a perfect God. Let’s update the faith to reflect our unholiness, rather than relying on a holy God. A God who is the same, yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8). A God in whom there is no variation or shadow of turning (James 1:17). Sure, let’s do.
