Don't tell me that traditionalists and orthodox Catholics have gotten upset over nothing with the latest from the Synod.
I've defended what I thought and think is the Pope's approach to these issues. I've been behind a new way of communicating. I can accept some amount of gradualism, and certainly some criticism of how conservatives have communicated this.
But no, don't come to me after LGB activists are celebrating and cheering on the Pope, talking openly about how the Church is being co-opted to become more friendly towards gay marriage and same-sex sexual act - not the first time, might I add - and tell me that no, it's because of an ambiguous mistranslation in this part. And do not further suggest that it's the CONSERVATIVES who made this silly misunderstanding, when most of the world seems to have done exactly that.
More than that, if there was a mistranslation - then clarify. As Burke said, it's time for this pope to clearly and unambiguously - if only once - state the moral facts of these matters. There are more people to be concerned about than people who openly oppose natural law and Catholic moral teaching. It is not acceptable to leave them twisting in the wind and feeling betrayed for the sake of making Andrew fucking Sullivan cheerful. And if this Pope and this Synod can't manage that, then they'll be to the church what Pope Leo X was.
