The lefty-hitting Blackmon said he is not naïve now to think PED use has been eradicated in baseball – “I think there’s probably guys still taking things they shouldn’t be taking,” said Blackmon – even with a drug-testing program in place that enforces an 80-game ban for first-time PED offenders, a 162-game ban for a second positive test and a lifetime ban for a third PED strike. (MLB announced three suspensions Friday, including Rockies minor league pitcher Austin Wright getting suspended for the remainder of the ’17 season for a positive PED test).
James, You have it exactly right. Priests who identify as or with “gay” do a tremendous amount of damage. Prior to the 2008 elections the Senior pastor in my faith area altered the Key themes of Catholic Social teaching as they appeared in Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship, removing the exhortation to defend marriage as between one man and one woman. He later appointed a man who campaigned for same sex “marriage” to head the faith area social concerns committee. In the fall of 2008 I asked him about same sex “marriage”. He countered with a remark that a homosexual man had been brutally murdered someplace in Montana. This rather effeminate priest appointed dissident after dissident to the faith area social concerns committee than made the projects of other committees subject to approval by social concerns. So, when the KC’s wanted to use the image of a 20 month old unborn child to promote Pain Capable Unborn Protection Act that committee would not allow the image on the basis that “it would be offensive to some women who had experienced miscarriages” The irony was that the image the KC’s proposed to use was the same image the bishops used in the bulletin inserts for respect life Sunday the previous year. The effeminate priest on the committee served as the spokesperson and said he would never allow it to be used. All these things are connected- life, religious liberty, the Church’s position on marriage all converge. And in my experience, effeminate priests are on the wrong side much of the time. They don’t openly oppose the Church’s teachings of course, but it is in the distortions, the things they say and the things they don’t say that their dissidence comes through.
