Jenkins fails ND

I have so much to say and not enough time to say it. Suffice it to say that Jenkins has made a huge error in judgment, and has thus exposed many to something that is truly evil and offensive in every way. I'm too sad to be angry. This just means more distortion and more lies about the Truth of the Catholic Church.

Story here. And here. Text of the final remarks here.

Our Lady, pray for us.

Glad to see that you're keeping up with the general campus trend of assuming you know more than a man twice your age, twice your experience, and, judging by the content of this blog, twice your intellect.

anon, it's not about wisdom, although the host has quite a lot. Our elders most often have more intellect than we ourselves, especially ones as trained as Fr. Jenkins. The issue is spine. Young people have it in spades, and for the older, it begins to deteriorate as the years go by. Given the contortive demands of high office, we can presume almost anyone in the general case placed in a high position lacks any spine at all. Father Jenkins, case in point. We are a spineless CATHOLIC university, but at the same time, a spinelesss catholic UNIVERSITY.

that was a bit unfair. At least he had the spine to put the question in issue, rather than the indifferent predecessor-monk. (I am separately tee'd off about another campus anamoly that I hope is remedied soon by what would require a brave leader). Still, his letter reads like someone taking the middle of the road for the middle-of-the-road's sake.

I'd say that Fr. Jenkins has more spine for making this choice - just saying - I don't think the issue is spine at all.

I just wrote Fr. Jenkins
a letter asking him to have the Pres. sign the petition
appealing to congress to defeat FOCA. Jenkins should
not be embarassed to do so..after all he is a "modern desciple of Christ"
