    Bishop Donal McKeown on those who vote Yes in same sex marriage referendum
    “I don’t doubt that there are many people who are practicing churchgoers of whatever church background who will in conscience vote Yes, and that’s entirely up them. I’m not going to say they’re wrong,” he added.

    Response from Bishop Athanasius Schneider, auxiliary bishop of Astana in Kazakhstan.

    Bishop Schneider: Those clerics who encouraged the faithful to vote for same sex marriage revealed themselves by this same fact as false prophets, as those who pervert the Word of God. They revealed themselves as public liars, to whom are fully applicable these words of Holy Scripture: “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter” (Is 5:20) and: “Your prophets have seen for you false and deceptive visions; they have not exposed your iniquity to restore your fortunes, but have seen for you oracles that are false and misleading” (Lam 2: 14). To such priests and bishops the Apostle Paul without any doubt would say today these words: “Such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ” (2 Cor 11:13). In order to remedy this situation it is firstly necessary that faithful Bishops teach clearly and unambiguously the truth of Christ and correct explicitly the teaching of these false prophets.

    Great stuff from Bishop Athanasius Schneider. Calling a spade a spade is so refreshing to hear.
    Im worried about the trend in the Irish Bishops in the May referendum.

    At Mass this morning there was 25 people in my local Chruch.
    I consciously counted.
    I also was aware that I was the only one present under 50. The priest is in his sixties and in poor health.
    In ten years times, there will be only half the amount there, at best.
    I hope the priest is still around then, God bless him.
    We need women priests?
    We need married priests?
    No, we dont.
    We need the Church to give the people sound teaching and doctrine.
    The vocations will come then on their own accord.
    "and that’s entirely up them. I’m not going to say they’re wrong,” he added." is what has got the Church into this mess, in my opinion.
    Doesn't it sound so much like the fickle attitude of Lord Carey to euthanasia? "Ive changed my mind"????
