The “closed arms” of VOTF

The “closed arms” of VOTF

Voice of the Faithful claims that it is not a liberal organization, that it welcomes people from the “whole spectrum of Catholic belief,” and that is grassroots and open to all. We all know it’s bunk, but here’s some evidence anyway.

When a group portrays itself as a grassroots organization, one would imagine that it would encourage maximum member participation.

However, it would appear that it is not that easy to participate with fellow members at the Providence Rhode Island branch of the Voice of the Faithful (VOTF). Local members at Christ the King parish had hoped to attend the monthly gathering last June 13.

Upon arriving, however, they found a large sign announcing that the meeting was a closed working session for VOTF members only.
