No oath of fidelity from VOTF

No oath of fidelity from VOTF

I mentioned the other day that we had the Live2BHoly Concert on Salem Common presented by it was a great event made even better by the presence of a lot of great Catholic organizations, whether they were selling music or t-shirts or books, or representing their religious order or lay group.

A funny thing happened with that last week, before the concert. The volunteer coordinator for the vendor tables received an email from sone who said they were with Voice of the Faithful and they wanted a table. Now, this woman is a very orthodox Catholic and didn’t want to give VOTF any type of platform at an event designed to be a strong statement in support of the Catholic faith. So she asked me and my brother-in-law (the organizer of the event) what she thought she should do. In the end, she just told them that it was too late and that all the tables were rented out (which was true.)

But what I suggested was that they send her an Oath of Fidelity to the Church’s teachings and ask them to sign and send it back and they’d be allowed to have a table. Well, this person from VOTF emailed back with the weirdest email (basically telling the organizers that they had to bend their rules for her) and that gave my brother-in-law the opening to send the Oath of Fidelity. We never heard back from them. Why am I not surprised?
