Statement by Carol McKinley of Faithful Voice
This is another day of profound sadness in the Archdiocese of Boston. We trust that the acceptance of Cardinal Law’s resignation will move everyone concerned toward healing and remedy.
Any organization is a sum total of the actions, activities, beliefs and statements of its members. The Boston Priests' Forum and Voice of the Faithful have been teaching that moral and sexual theology can be left to the discernment of one's individual conscience. This is not only disordered, it is the precise tool that Paul Shanley used to excuse away his actions.
Under the present circumstances, our children remain confused on who is teaching the authentic faith. It is impossible for them to process whether the beliefs of Fr. Walter Cuenin and Voice of the Faithful members or Pope John Paul II, which are completely diametric, represent Roman Catholicism.
We have been in invisible schism for many years and must examine each and every individual who is placed in a position of teaching the Roman Catholic Faith and correct their errors formally and publicly for the sake of our children.
This responsibility does not solely rely upon the Apostolic Administrator, Bishop Richard Lennon, but all of us. We pray that our priests rise and defend Truth.
