@rmaffeo Michael Ruse is an atheist philosopher, but not a 'New Atheist', and John Lennox is an Irish/British mathematician and apologist.
@rmaffeo were you listening to the 'Unbelievable' discussion between John Lennox and Michael Ruse?
@George @rmaffeo I would have thought they'd have more evidence on Bishop Barron than most. https://faithfulshepherds.com/bishop/robert-barron/
@peepingThomist I see what you mean. Would you still say though, that homosexuality is part of the problem, irrespective of the qualifiers of it being "pervasive [and] nearly un-closeted"?
@peepingThomist Yes, I realised that after I wrote. The sentence I didn't understand was: "If pervasive, nearly-uncloseted homosexuality in the preisthood were the primary cause of the current crisis, it would not be the true that for hundreds of years there have been institutional cover-ups for clerical sexual abuse."
@peepingThomist I don't quite follow, could you reword the first sentence?
@peepingThomist Thank you :)
@testisfidelis I haven't found an English version online yet.
@mikel That's intense. Reminds me of some of Fr Ripperger's sermons.
@peepingThomist No, but I'm aware of the Ordinariate. I'm sure there would be one here somewhere.
@mikel Why not come home? That's a good question, brother! I'm not sure I have the answer to that or that it will not happen in future. I pray for the reunification of the Anglican and Roman churches. I have applied for a year of discernment to start my path towards ordination so I will definitely be thinking through this very carefully. I'm still relatively new to this diocese and am yet to find a confessor in the Anglican church (the sacrament is not commonly offered regularly).
@sobercatholic Thanks - yeah, I'm afraid that by remaining Anglican and receiving confession, I'd be trying to have my cake and eat it too, so to speak, even though I'm not protestant, and I believe what the church teaches about confession (to the best of my knowledge).
@George Thanks. Yes, I think I'd better talk to a priest.
In today's gospel (23rd), who do you interpret the man without a wedding garment as representing?
