RE: The Rottweiler’s Rottweiler - June 17, 2012
Bill Keller in his Op-Ed piece, The Rottweiler’s Rottweiler (NY Times, June 17, 2012) gives far too much credence to Bill Donahue and The Catholic League, who is in the “bloviating ignoramus” category with other unnamed spokesmen. That Dr. Donahue speaks for the Church is evident by the rise of his hierarchical supporters, but is anyone listening? As Bill Keller points out, the faithful are steps ahead, as the ideas of Emerging Christianity show us.
Many years ago only a priest, with consecrated hands, was able to handle the sacred bread and distribute communion. Mother Church feeding her people. Now, believers take communion in their own hands.
We are older now, and wiser. We can feed ourselves.
