A Bishop Blowin’ in the Wind

We see this in every human institution: middle management sucks up to the boss, old boss out and new boss in, middle management now blows the other way because the wind has changed.

But we would rather not see it in the churches.

Is Robert Barron a Bishop of Baal?

Robert Barron, Bishop of Winona-Rochester, campaigned assiduously to become a bishop. When Pope Benedict XVI was in office, Barron was a conservative. When Francis I came in, Barron flipped and became a Far Left “progressive” known for supporting “gay clergy.” He has been described as an ecclesiastical chameleon.

In his latest caper, Barron taught that God punished (!) Elijah for destroying the priests of Baal (1 Kings 18). You can bet Pope Francis wouldn’t have done that! No–he’d have ’em in the Vatican for an interfaith game of croquet. Maybe they could swap some doctrines.

Barron is accused of tailoring his teaching to fit the times, “following the money and the power.” We expect to see this i,ns politics, in business–wherever sinful human beings get together.

So yes, it’s going to crop up in the churches.

And when it does… find another church.

  1. Even when he was assuming the image of orthodoxy, I thought there was something glib and insincere about him, something more façade than substance.

    1. Just for reference, Lee, I am getting multiple copies of each email notification. FWIW, the problems are almost certainly not limited to your blog.

    2. Apprarently, whatever in their software was tracking notifications was seeing posts as is they had just happened.

      I replaced to one of the WordPress people with a real diatribe, trying to reason with them in their language. I don’t know if it did any good. I could try reasoning in bonobo. 🙂

    3. Probably every time Lee had to reapprove a comment it triggered a notification. But I haven’t seen any repeats this morning, and I’m able to see more comments today than before, so Jill must be doing something good. Too bad she couldn’t make it to the “Oy, Rodney” Chapter 500 party. She would have enjoyed the toothpaste cake. 😉
