Bishop Jenky's Mind Is Terribly Screwed Up


Bishop Jenky compares Obama to Hitler and complains about Obama's "extreme secularist agenda".


Here: Diary on Jenky on DailyKos
and here: Article at Think Progress

Jenky is reading from the bishops' playbook and seems to have gone over the top. His mind is scrambled. I thought Obama was the socialist. Jenky has Obama coming after the catholics, but it really seems like Jenky and his version of the church are the ones coming after Obama and his followers. I mean Jenky and his republican cohorts have even been calling Obama the socialist.


Didn’t Martin Niemoller say of the Nazis: "First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out-Because I was not a Socialist.Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out-Because I was not a Trade Unionist."  Who is coming for whom?


I will be polite and not go to the extreme of suggesting that maybe Jenky is the nazi. 


It does seem like it's time to speak out against bishops like Jenky. He's from Peoria. So what would you expect.

  1. This kind of thing makes me shudder at the intellectual bankruptcy of too many of our Bishops. Jenky should stop listening to Rush for the talking points of his sermons.

  2. I agree. Does not seem that many bishops can or are allowed to think for themselves these days.

  3. It's getting worse, and worse! Hurtling into the future with 'eyes wide shut', as they say.
