Is Fr. Z's "Niceness" showing True Charity to McCarrick & his Pro-Gay Bishop's Network Destroying the Church?

Fr. Z recently compared faithful Catholics fighting to save the Church to the pro-homosexual dissenter Michael Winters because they were not being nice to Cardinal McCarrick and his pro-gay bishop's network who cover-up sex abuse and are trying to destroy to Church.

Apparently, Fr. Z thinks the best way to end the greatest crisis in the history of the Church is to be nice.

According to him, it appears that it's nice to call for less money to be given to McCarrick's pro-gay bishops network who cover-up sex abuse, but apparently he doesn't think it's nice to call for their removal from the episcopate or to be laicized.

Fr. Z even thinks it might be nice for Pope Francis, which the Catholic Monitor and others have presented evidence which strongly suggests he has been involved in cover-up, to appoint a canonical Special Prosecutor who would be under Francis's influence.

He probably doesn't think it's nice for McCarrick's pro-gay bishop network to be legally prosecuted as apparently might happen in Pennsylvania and for bishops to be jailed for sex abuse cover-up and other crimes.

Scholar Fr. Chad Rippinger, P.hD., in "Introduction to the Science of Mental Health" explains what charity to our enemies or sinners means:

"[C]harity is not divorced from supernatural prudence, not only for our sake but also for the sake of our enemies or sinners. At times, the most charitable thing that can happen to a sinner is to be cut off from certain effects or manifestations of charity so that he may come to his senses about his sinful life. Extending certain effects of charity may confirm him in his sin, and thereby do him harm."

"From this we understand that charity is not merely being nice, rather niceness is the effect of charity which is extended to people based on prudential judgment. This avoids a spirit of falsity which we find in certain people who are always nice, even when their niceness is out of place, unsuitable or even false." (Page 379)

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.

Laicize McCarrick. To do otherwise is an incredible scandal for Catholics and tells the world all Catholic priests are homosexual predators. Only laicization sends the message this is not tolerated any longer. It is a horror it has been.
Zero tolerance of any homosexual activity, even consensual between adults. These priests are the dissenters, they are tearing the church apart. They are the ones misappropriating funds for cabana boy parties and goodies for the boys. They are lousy spiritual fathers. We won't miss them.
Zero tolerance of men with any homosexual inclination admitted to seminary. First hint of homosexual behavior, OUT. To see this not yet done after all we have seen and all poor boys have experienced is crazy making. Cdl. O'Malley has unmitigated gall to suggest at this point there needs to be any discussion on "practices". Practice this! ZERO TOLERANCE FOR HOMOSEXUALITY. That should do it.

"Exorcist Fr. Ripperger is asking everyone to say this Prayer until the Election is Resolved"

A good friend of the Catholic Monitor got this from a group message. She said "exorcist Fr. Chad Ripperger is asking everyone to say this prayer until the election is resolved": Prayer of Command In His Name and by the power of His Cross and Blood, I ask Jesus to bind any evil spirits, forces and powers of the earth, air, fire, or water, of the netherworld and the satanic forces of nature.  By the power of the Holy Spirit and by His authority, I ask Jesus Christ to break any curses, hexes, or spells and send them back to where they came from, if it be His Holy Will.  I beseech Thee Lord Jesus to protect us by pouring Thy Precious Blood on us (my family, etc.), which Thou hast shed for us and I ask Thee to command that any departing spirits leave quietly, without disturbance, and go straight to Thy Cross to dispose of as Thou sees fit.  I ask Thee to bind any demonic interaction, interplay, or communications.  I place N. (Person, place or thing) under the protectio

High-profile Lawyer Barnes: Amy Coney Barrett would be a Disaster

High-profile trial lawyer Robert Barnes who deals in civil, criminal and constitutional law reported on Twitter that Amy Coney Barrett would be a disaster. The Barnes Twitter report shows that Coney Barrett has " sid[ed] with the government on the lockdowns, on uncompensated takings, on excusing First Amendment infringements & Fourth Amendment violations... [and] exclaimed the benefits of Jacobson, the decision that green-lit forced vaccines & carved out an emergency exception to Constitutional protection in "public health" or "emergency" cases used to justify forced sterilizations & detention camps...

The Avvo.com lawyer directory reports that attorney "Robert Barnes embraces the challenge to defend the little guy and stand up for what is right.

If Kamala Harris' Father is part White & part Jamaican African and her Mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black?

  Is Joe Biden's running mate really Black? If Kamala Harris' father is part white and part Jamaican African and her mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black? Reason.com tries to figure it out: Kamala Harris, Joe Biden's pick to be the Democratic Party's vice-presidential nominee, is the daughter of an Indian immigrant mother and a Jamaican immigrant father. Her father, as I understand it, has ancestors of both European and African origin. [Welcome new Volokh readers. FYI, I've been working on a book on the American Law of Race, with this forthcoming article the first relevant output. My own opinion is that Ms. Harris should be deemed American, period, but there is no such box on government forms, and if you decline to state your race, someone will decide for you… First things first. There is no multiracial or mixed-race category in American law in any jurisdiction. Nor is there an Indian category. So Harris cannot be legally Indian, nor can she b
