Development and Peace cleared.

Last spring SoWrongOrNuts had himself some testerical hissy 'episode' about the Catholic-supported and widely respected Development and Peace. He, and other self-righteous religious individuals and groups (Lifeshite) accused the international organization of funding groups that advocate for practices forbidden by the Church, including contraception, abortion and the use of condoms to prevent the transmission of AIDS.

The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops has released a report about the investigation into those accusations. Dennis Gruending wrote an excellent blogpost about some of the history behind this explosive situation.

Shorter Blob Blogging Wingnut on the report: "They lied! TheyliedtheyliedtheyliedtheyliedTHEYLIED!!! (Not the bishops. I'm not saying the bishops are lying - they were manipulated!)"

So, Canadian Catholic religious fundies are now foaming at the mouth about this, because the report also .... how shall we say this? ... reprimands them.
We make an urgent appeal to the leadership of Lifesite News that it establish an open and fruitful dialogue with Canadian Catholic groups. We are convinced that when a group makes allegations, accusations and denunciations against another, this can bring nothing positive to our Church and is a counter-witness to that Gospel spirit that should guide all Christians. Negative actions of this kind encourage suspicion, scandal and division in the Church.

But, but, but, but, BUT-HEADS! Fetishists of The Fetus©™ like and want suspicion, scandal and division.

Why? Because they truly believe: "We're right! We'rerightwe'rerightwe'rerightwe'rerightwe'rerightwe'reRIGHT!!! And everyone else is wrong and wishy-washy lefties."

It's why we call them zealots.

UPDATE: An article, from the Western Catholic Reporter - Canada's Largest Religious Weekly says that Bishop Weisgerber ...
is urging Catholics to turn to their bishops rather than blogs and websites when it comes to defining who or what is Catholic. "People are taking interpretations and making them fact. People are believing these facts as though they were indisputable, when clearly they are very disputable," said Weisgerber. "They are interpretations from a political standpoint."
Blogs and websites ... by that does he mean sanctimonious scolds like HERSELF and SoWrongOrNuts and their political agenda for The Fetus©™ ?

SorB is clearly very frustrated with this epic fail. I predict a massive tubesock holocaust.
