Me? A Dissident?

GloriaTV ran a segment yesterday in which it labeled me a "dissenting Catholic journalist." You can see the segment here. Of course, in the next segment, the shows host refers to "German abortion bishops" and "notorious German bishops" so I am in good company. I was not previously familiar with GloriaTV but the low-end production values are obviously matched by their low-end theological sophistication. I wish to assure GloriaTV that I do not dissent from the Church's teaching and can say, as our RCIA neophytes say at the Easter Vigil, I believe and profess all that the holy Catholic Church believes, teaches and professes to be revealed by Christ.

Support independent reporting on important issues.
