Lord have mercy.
This reminds me of the Oakland diocese in the flaky state of California where the nuts, fruits, and fruitcakes reside.
In the late 1960s, the liberal Catholic bishop said it was better to smoke marijuana than to discriminate against Blacks.
As a result, several friends of my mom started smoking marijuana and ended up in jail. They blamed the bishop.
It's the blame game, but St. Peter will not buy this argument at the Pearly Gates.
Yes, this is truly a tragedy. I will remember your family in my prayers.
Pray for my brother who is also into smoking marijuana and drinking alcohol. He goes around stoned and preaching the protestant doctrine of ONCE SAVED, ALWAYS SAVED.
