Of Drunks and Streetlamps

This post reminds me that as documents trickle out of the USCCB conference, we'll need to read them using my guide.

It's important to remember that the purpose of the bishops' teaching is not to instruct the faithful, but to affirm what you already know to be true (even if it's that the bishops are bunch of harsh bigots or spineless squishes). So, please do not allow anything that comes out of the conference to change your beliefs or attitudes. Rather, our task is to evaluate the documents based on how effective they are in affirming what we already believe.
