For the past decade, the Catholic Church has been plagued with sex abuse allegations. But it has not been the only problem facing the Catholic Church today.
It is being taken over by liberals.
Social justice has been an agenda within the church. Originally intended to help the poor, it is now become more liberal in its teachings, especially when encouraging Catholics to work with various liberal organizations, e.g. Habitat for Humanity. The Catholic Church really needs to review its teachings and policies regarding social justice. It also needs to abandon its anti-capitalist views, not to mention its sympathy towards radical groups such as the Occupy Wall Street Movement.
Next, there is the immigration issue. The Catholic Church and its affiliates have shown sympathy towards illegal immigrants. Some parishes are said to be safe havens for illegal immigrants, despite the fact that doing so is a violation of federal law (although one might argue that the church is giving them sanctuary). At any rate, parishes need to stop being places of refuge for illegal immigrants.
Then, there is the Catholic Church’s pro-Palestinian stance. Although the Vatican feels that there is room for both an Israel and a Palestine, the Arabs don’t see it that way. The Arabs want to take over all of Israel, and impose Sharia Law (something which has already occurred in the Palestinian territories, e.g. Bethelem). Needless to say, the Vatican needs to be pro-Israel.
Finally, the Catholic Church needs to get tough with pro-abortion politicians, such as Nancy Pelosi. They need to be reminded that their views are grounds for excommunication. However, none of the clergy appears willing to step up and do this.
There was a time when the Catholic Church took a stand against Communism, but with liberalism infiltrating it, that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore. If Catholics in America (and elsewhere in the world for that matter) are true to both God and Country, then they should stand up to voice their opinion to the clergy, whether it be their priest, bishop, archbishop, cardinal, or even Pope Francis.
Changes can also take place for the Mass and for Holy Days of Obligation.
Two years ago, the Catholic Church underwent a series of changes regarding the Mass. New prayers were enacted, as well as responses.
