In Washington Post Priest Matthew Fox Talks About The Episcopal Church's Inquisition

Well not really. But this former Catholic Priest now Episcopal Priest rants against the Catholic Church today. See The Other Side of Catholic Tradition. in the WASHINGTON POST.

A couple of thoughts before I begin. I do wonder if non Catholic readers of newspapers get tired of all this Catholic news and more to the point rants against the Catholic Church. Do they care that much? The poor Lutherans barely get a mention. What are they? Second class Christians not worthy of the Op ed page?

Also Father Fox like now Father Cutie are two ex Catholic Priests from this faith community that are going on a public relations battle against the Catholic Church. They get enormous press coverage. Can one imagine if this was a Catholic Priest doing this against his former Faith community. Would that even make the papers? Would there be outrage?

Father Fox like a lot of ex Catholics can't really leave. He like a moth to flame just can't help himself.

Father Fox really should be looking at his own faith community before casting stones.

In his Faith community the leadership is racking up massive debts suing dissenting Churches and in fact whole Dioceses. We are talking debt that appears to be in the tens of million of dollars.

In his Faith community the national hierarchy in just a few years has gained incredible new powers over the faithful and it's priests.

In his Faith community in their major publications there are the most outrageous editorials against "traditional" Episcopal.

In his Faithh Community lay folks that managed to leave after huge battles cannot by Court settlement call even call themselves ANGLICAN

In his Faith community it appears certain changes to Canon law are going to make it possible for Priests ( and Bishops) to be put on trial if they go against future "progressive" leadership ideas.

In his Faith community Canon law and procedures appeared to be ignored when it threatens a goal of the powers that be.

In his Faith community what once was promised as tolerance as to the issue of female Priests and Bishops and gay marriage is becoming the new Orthodoxy where no dissent is allowed. As to the issue of gay marriage as some leading progressive Episcopal theologians recently said "There WILL BE Table Fellowship".

That is because his folks that are charge think these folks are advocating ideas that violate Social Justice. That violate the will of the Spirit in which their Church is now being use as a voice. That what these dissenters advocate is in fact a sin.

Well more power to them. The stakes are high on who is right. However will all due respect Father Fox get off your high horse.

Father Fox does not care about these things in the Episcopal Church that he accuses the Catholic Church of doing. That's because his people are in charge.

Thus we have a picture of an alternative Universe where the Catholic Father Fox would have prevailed.
