Hypocrites for God: Thomas Tobin

July 1, 2011

Earlier this week Rhode Island passed a bill legalizing civil unions for same-sex couples. Thomas J. Tobin, Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Providence, felt he needed to respond to this heinous act.

Can there be any doubt that Almighty God will, in His own time and way, pass judgment upon our state, its leaders and citizens, for abandoning His commands and embracing public immorality? I encourage Catholics to pray for God’s patience, mercy and forgiveness in these distressing times.


Can I just point out that this is from a Diocese whose clergy has a history of sexually abusing young boys, and from a Bishop who failed to warn parents about sexual predators?

The damage that sexual abuse does to a child emotionally, mentally, and developmentally is staggering. It is pure evil. If God was in the business of retributive justice then I assume a giant hole would open up in the earth and swallow Tobin and the child molesters and make the world a better place.

Ridiculous hypocrisy…

    I’m sure God will judge those priests “in His own time and way.” If it just so happens that God’s way is to transfer the abusers and allow them to retire in peace, who are we to judge? 😛

    The Bishop betrayed his mental crutch here, an attitude that prevents him from doing anything more than call for prayer in the face of evil.

    Hypocrisy from a religious leader?! That’s unpossible!
