Voice of the Faithful leaders will meet with Archbishop Sean O’Malley of Boston next week. Of course, the VOTFers think the archbishop will lift the ban on new chapters forming in parishes, but that it not at all clear. I hope the archbishop will be cordial, but firm in telling them that if they can’t profess the faith of the Church then they will not be recognized as a Catholic organization.
It’s funny; it would be such a simple thing for them to say that they accept the Church’s defined teachings on certain bedrock matters, but they can’t because it’s not true. So they continue to prevaricate and pretend they aren’t what they are, hoping to fool everyone. And they continue to fade from relevance.
