Laugh it up, Cardinal Tim! Laugh it up, Cardinal Tim!

This from CNSNews.com Although the Catholic Church teaches that homosexual acts are “intrinsically disordered,” constitute “grave depravity,” and can never “be approved,” the Catholic bishops of New York State “have not taken a position” on past bills and “do not foresee taking a position” on Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s new order banning private and public health insurers from covering gay conversion  therapy for minors.

Cuomo, a Catholic who supports homosexual marriage and abortion, made his announcement about prohibiting health care coverage for conversion (or reparative) therapy on Saturday, Feb. 6. READ MORE HERE

REMNANT COMMENT: So far this has been the reaction of the brave bishops of New York State:



Cowards such as these clearly do not possess the stuff of which martyrs are made. They’re so busy eliminating hills on which they will not die, that before long they’ll be lying in a barren desert somewhere, dying comfortably in their beds, having never taken a serious stand on anything that matters.

St. John Fisher must be rolling over in his grave.
