|Nobody expects the Leftist Inquisition|
No! They attended a Trump rally and responded positively, even when Trump said things that his critics were appalled by. Alas, but the cameras caught them, and keen New Prolife Catholics were fast to jump on their error. Calls to alert their bishop were made, and it looks like the Bishop himself got involved.
Ah, I can remember when Internet Catholics were disgusted by the idea that people would call someone's bishop over something like politics, when a priest would suggest an ardently pro-abortion politician might be publicly chastened, or that the Church should even have an opinion on the behavior of its flock. We're all sinners after all.
I remember Catholics laughing along with Obama, or Hillary, no matter what they advocated and it was all OK. I remember them blowing beer out their noses over liberal late night comedians, even if they advocated intrinsic evil, mortal sin that cried out to heaven for vengeance, or even toyed with blasphemy. If you want to know what the modern Left values - and that includes the Catholic Left - you need only go back ten or twenty years and see what they condemned. There is an ever increasing likelihood that the two are one and the same.
Not that this Catholic Left Inquisition is new. I posted some time ago about a prominent Catholic blogger letting slip the dogs of war and calling on her readers to swoop in and derail the career of a judge who dared disagree with her. The issue? That would be the shooting of Harambe the gorilla at the Cincinnati Zoo. So there is precedent. It looks like calling down the wrath of Holy Mother Church on those who dare digress from the priorities and narratives of the Political Left is becoming quite the thing. And it looks like ol'Holy Mother Church might be more willing to comply than it was back in the day; back when it did its best Rodney Dangerfield tug-at-the-collar impersonation when asked to punish people over advocating abortion or gay sex.
The Left is in full Inquisition mode, scouring the countryside every day, seeking out those who have fallen from the purer faith of the political Left and the superiority of the latest ethics. You will be careful if you're Catholic. If you are a priest. You can never be good enough. And all notions of tolerance and diversity and respect for other opinions are out the window. You've been warned.
