By conservatives I mean practicing observant Catholics…
The analogy of the Church being a field hospital for the wounded is an apt one. And people do find grace and redemption.
But there is right and wrong and my friend Trooper York has been warning what has been going on with Pope Francis is wrong (and he linked this latest). Francis's acts regarding Liberation Theology are troubling. Now we have Stacy McCain raising the alarm. Granted Stacy is a Calvinist heretic just to the right of Cromwell, but he is correct with this observation from Robert Conquest's second law of politics: “Any organization not explicitly and constitutionally right-wing will sooner or later become left-wing.” The third law also applies: "The simplest way to explain the behavior of any bureaucratic organization is to assume that it is controlled by a cabal of its enemies." My guess is if Jesus went to visit the Vatican Curia (and this was the case long before Pope Francis showed up), he would be flipping over a few tables and driving them out.
Even Ed Morrissey is raising questions. Kathryn Jean Lopez sees outreach. Ramesh Ponnuru says the Synod is getting weird.
Can't forget DaTechGuy! He says what the Synod is doing is God's work.
