A morality racket

Ay ay ay, Benedict. In case you don’t read Spanish (couldn’t find a translation, sorry…) the Catholic church has deigned to give the green light to Vicente Fox, ex-President of Mexico (and, apparently, ardently Catholic), to marry his spokesperson and companion through the rites of that church. Even though it excommunicated him for marrying her in the first place, after annulling his first marriage of over 2o years to his first wife. Even though he didn’t ask for it, being perfectly happy with his civil union. So truth is only truth if you’re in a certain tax bracket? Or am I to believe that the Catholic church just genuinely wants its members to be happy? That must be it. Sweetness and light, my friends, sweetness and light.

    Happiness is one thing. Real holiness is another. I don’t know what to say about you blog but, “Ouch.”

    Jim- the cult of happiness is widespread. It’s unfortunate that “what makes me happy” has become the rule for truth. Sorry if I was too blunt- it’s a (?)talent. Blessings.

    Ah but the Catholic Church has always pulled it. The only reason they wouldn’t sacntion Henry the VIII’s divorce was for politcal reasons. The rich have always been able to get their way in the Catholic Church; though recently (like the last twenty/thirty years) the Church has decided there should be more reasons for annulment like abuse, married under false pretenses (like he promised to have kids; she promised to raise them catholic), and a few other ones. Ah, but I’m a little surpirsed with the Pope’s watchdog.
