I think we are agreed that neither your opinion of me as a man nor my opinion of Fr C as a man has anything to do with the topic that is the focus of this thread. You think I am wrong; I think he is wrong. C'est la vie.
If you and others wish to discuss this case, that is your and their prerogative. I have already done so and do not feel the need to do so again. Conclude from that whatever you wish. For my part, sir, I wish you well.
Actually I think it has everything to do with this thread. Almost anyway.
This thread is about Ego, Pride, Vanity and denigrating a Priest who had an educated opinion based on years of training learned At the SPPX Seminary, that others here disagreed with, and that became the battle cry to rally the posse and smear away.
Life by means of machinery is a question we all ponder and make. Its Not necessarily GODLY, and is not morally obligatory.
It is not about right or wrong, but moral and immoral according TO GOD's law, facts and human dignity according to ones wishes and directives to family members.
I dont wish to ever have my life sustained via machinery, Any machinery and gave my family that directive.
I dont expect my parents to intervene and usurp my wifes role if they disagree with her, if she becomes a sinner, or makes poor life decisions.
The only issue that I can see any sane merit, and one not discussed, is whether one suspends life provided BY machinery, ONCE the machinery is the viable and only means of support, and has already been given.
However, that too, went against Ms. Schiavos directives and wishes.
You worked tirelessly in trying to destroy an entire Parish, one where people made life decisions to travel interstate, move and relocate their lives and careers.
You aired dirty laundry publically, (some perhaps true but most not true), only to make a point and to spite a man that refused to hire you, and forbid your presence, and for no other reason than that, you worked unsuccessfully to destroy that man and that Parish.
Maybe GOD can forgive you, but I cannot. Anyone that would do such a thing is a wicked and vile person, that I cannot call a man.
I too wish you well, in the same sense I wished Judas well, on his road to Hell.
May GOD have mercy on you, for the damage you caused to a Priest that has worked trielessly to defend our Faith, our Mass, to offer Sacraments, to give his life for Trads.
If anyone were to ever do such a thing to any Parish, in any Rite, any affiliation whether Sede, SPPX, SPPV, Independent, Feenyite et al, that person is abomitable.
