Money talks, apologetics....well you know

The trouble with professional Catholics is that they will do whatever they have to in order to keep the money rolling in. I feel something close to sympathy. The rent/mortgage needs to be paid, the kid's tuition is a big ole check and marriages explode when the bills aren't paid. I get it. The company man does what he has to. However,as I've said before, I don't trust any layperson who makes his or her living off the Church and whose teachings are treated as equal or greater than that of an ordained member of the clergy.

I hope Michael Voris isn't included in your criticism. He maybe a layman, but unlike Shea, Akins, Armstrong, and others like them, he has made an effort to get some theological training. And from what I've seen, he makes an honest effort not to make scads of money off the church, he doesn't try to build a personality cult around himself like others do, and he refuses to go along to get along with the Church Of Nice bootlickers.

But I still love so many professionals.

Auntie Joanna Bogle is one. Probably because food is so involved on her EWTN series.

Oh I don't mean Mr. Voris.

You know the unfortunate thing about these professional Catholics? Instead of dividing the Church (slamming Father Peter West, Lila Rose, Michael Voris, rad-trads and whoever else isn't them), they could be helping to instruct the unknowing on the true teachings of the Church (pre-Vatican II).

But no, they prefer to rearrange the chairs on the deck of the Titanic.
