Marie Meaney, who received her doctorate and an M. Phil. in Modern Languages from the University of Oxford, wrote an essay today on Crisis Magazine entitled: German Bishops have Prepared the Way for a De Facto Schism, which you can read in its entirety HERE.
The constant meme of Mercy espoused ad nauseam by many German bishops, and others who have bought into the meme, came in for sharp and damning criticism in the essay, as is clear in the below quote.
Here's the quote:
A Christianity that pretends it can do without marriage while claiming to be acting out of compassion, has taken on the trappings of Christianity while leaving us with an empty shell. This is one of the faces of the anti-Christ rearing its ugly head as it has throughout history. Our society has already fallen for it hook, line and sinker. We abort our children in the name of compassion, and kill the elderly out of mercy. We produce children for the infertile while killing the imperfect in the process. We call for mercy for the divorced and remarried, yet throw the children of the original marriage together with the abandoned spouse under the bus. This is the nasty underbelly of a false kind of compassion and mercy.
