It's time Archbishop John Neinstedt start withholding judgments and start leading by example to help the poor and disenfranchised, as his Church's Social Doctrine demands.That does not means setting people up, according to Vatican dictate: "to be manipulated by social, economic or political structures, because every person has the freedom to direct himself towards his ultimate." Or nitpicking devishly divisive details about gender behaviors.
It does mean he must instead support "the modern cultural, social, economic and political phenomenon of interdependence, which intensifies and makes particularly evident the bonds that unite the human family, accentuates (") a new model of the unity of the human race, which must ultimately i nspire our solidarity ."
Lest those who would judge
Because Papal documents are quite clear about what sins will be judged with the harshest scrutiny. And, mothers' appeals for support of their sons are not anywhere amongst the most egregious.
However, the possibilities the Bishop qualifies for eternal damnation his Holy Bible asserts are, on the other hand, doctrinally supportable. But I'm not God, so what do I know? In fact, who would know?
Only God Knows
Indeed, only God knows. And He's withholding judgment according to Catholic Scripture, Nienstedt quoted: until after the flames that consume us give "way to a new heaven and a new earth."
Meanwhile, The Most Reverend Bishop should practice what he preached to the Governor of the state and Country that supports Catholic causes, and remember: "those who receive benefits from the commonwealth must not forget their responsibility to society in return."
