Philadelphia Archbishop: Divorced Catholics Must Avoid Sex

This has been an interesting week.  It started off with the news that Ab Chaput in Philadelphia issued guidelines in lieu of Amoris laetitia that basically are NOT in lieu of AL.  It is the same old same old.  It is like he has not even read or comprehended one word in the pope’s recent Apostolic Exhoration.    Also, this archbishop has been chosen by the USCCB as the person who is to write the national guidelines in leiu of Amoris laetitia….right.  Can’t wait to read them!!  I will be posting a  number of articles on events subsequent to this that have set the internet afire with articles and comments.  Some of this stuff has caused me to bang my head on the keyboard and others to jump for joy.  Stay tuned and keep reading the articles!!….reyanna

    Charles Chaput has apparently not advanced from ignorant adolescence to mature man; he should not be a leader of any flock, much less admonishing the faithful who are so much more advanced than he. This is disgraceful (for the Church) and sad for the innocent Catholics who believe their bishops are omniscient and speaking for God.
