Voris being attacked and being supported

As I see it, not that anyone really cares

Unfortunately, this did happened on Voris' watch. He is the CEO of the Non-Profit. Just as the CEO of any other company is responsible for everything that goes on in his company (Case in point-Murdoch- News of the World, Cell-phone hacking case, He responded by shutting it down)

Also Bishops are treated as responsible for the crimes and sins of their priests.

Rightly or wrongly Voris is being painted with the same brush, by some. Forcing him to accept the responsibility of his organization is not in and of itself wrong. As CEO, he is Responsible. He is the Face of the Organization, and when the organization is sullied, so is he.

CNA telling him he was going to have a few days to get informed and then breaking that word, if true, was completely unjust and unfair and uncharitable. But really, how much Charity does Voris have for others (Bishops) when they drop the ball, or are caught unaware of anything going on in his archdicoese. For many this is Voris getting a taste of his own medicine. The average person is going to find it difficult to extend charity to the uncharitable.

As for Simon Rafe, I read his apology. He got carried away: I get it. Like no one else on the planet has ever gotten carried away and let a good idea get blown to hell, literally. He, for maybe a good reason, put himself in the near occasion of sin, and put others in a near occasion of sin. Then it blew up.  Would he have continued if it hadn't been brought to light-who-of-us-the-hell-knows.  The state and care of his soul is his own business.  He says he went to confession, great! The greater sin,as he points out is, that he may have led others to sin.  For that he apologized. And those that were tempted or fell because of his stories are the ones who need to forgive him.  It has nothing to do with me, I never read his stuff.  My occasions of sin are my own.

But, within the Non-Profit organization he is the webmaster( for a web-based TV station, and one who has his own programme, and a by-line on the blog, and handles alot of email for Voris., he is NOT just a flunkie. He is pretty high up and has major responsibilities. So the question becomes: How could Voris not know? Either Rafe was disingenuous, or Voris was oblivious. If the former, Rafe's resignation should on Voris' desk and accepted already. If the either case, Voris needs to present his own mea culpa, like the Pope has done, like other CEOs have done, and like Bishops have done. If the latter case, Voris needs to resign from the Non-Profit for being an ineffectual CEO.

Voris may have  been  unjustly attacked, but his reaction to it tells more about him than the accusation. So far he hasn't done anything at all. If he has, please direct me to it. World Youth Day, aside, he is still recording the Vortex, he should say something. He hasn't.  Some would take that as either: shirking his responsibility; burying his head in the sand; or he's a coward.

I think anybody who pimps out religion to make money is disgraceful. In Voris' delusional head he thinks he is the Pope so why would you think he cares about rules or laws or staff that are hiding their gay porn fiction writing activities?? If the stuff about Simon came out in any other organization, Voris would be flapping his lips and hairpiece all over the place, condemning them and calling for a resignation. He'll only give his own boy Simon a slap on the wrist because he's part of the Voris clan. Just watch.

Ah, but that's it, he runs a non profit, so technically he wasn't intending to make money, so he can't be accused of pimping the catechism.

But really he isn't pimping the religion so much as he is pimping his view of the catechism. his very narrow, holier than the Vatican point of view.

I've listened to his videos and although he quotes scripture, and the vatican, and event he saints, he takes them out of context to come up with his view of the religion, which is never where the church is. As I point out in this post:

http://puffsstuff.blogspot.com/2011/05/michael-voris-going-to-antigonish.html

Nothing of what he says the church says is wrong, but he extrapolates from statements and suggests that the Church want this or that or the other thing.He takes valid premises (church statements) and applies flawed logic at best and no logic at worst to come up with a conclusion that is erroneous.

That form of argument is disingenuous, and does more harm than good to the church.

Scripture to keep in mind

Six things there are, which the Lord hateth, and the seventh his soul detesteth: [17] Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, [18] A heart that deviseth wicked plots, feet that are swift to run into mischief, [19]A deceitful witness that uttereth lies, and him that soweth discord among brethren. [20] My son, keep the commandments of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother. ***Cf:Douay-Rheims Proverbs 6: 16-20
