Fr. Dwight Longenecker doesn't mince words, or make nice, or beat around the bush. At all. So his essay today on InsideCatholic.com is a little hard to read; it speaks the truth more forcefully than we're used to hearing.
Here's one paragraph that I believe to be prophetic:
Go read the whole thing. And pray that you will always choose the right side in the battles to come.In the next 20 years, this sort of Catholic [read the whole article for an explanation] will become extinct. As America descends further into decadence and decline, the lines will be drawn between the forces of darkness and the forces of light. People will have to choose whether to serve God and His Church or the dark side. Catholics will have to choose to be fully committed or not. If they choose to be Catholic, let them be informed and involved and integrated. If they choose to leave the Church, then they should be honest and stop referring to themselves as Catholic.
