Michael Voris on Purgatory

Tough talking - Not for the squeamish.

Why don't you take a leaf from Michael Voris's book and start your own radio show? He's obviously doing well on it.

Yes, all you have to do is memorize the Catechism, ask for money, and you're away.

Peter Nun said...

Yes, they sure do know how to make money out of religion in the States.

Inga Lill and Peter Nun: Your comments seem rather unfair. Michael Voris left his career as an Emmy-award winning journalist and spent much of his retirement fund to start a grass-roots TV program for Catholics to learn more about their faith - an area in which the Church is miserably failing in the US and elsewhere in the West. He left his career to do the work of God and deserves all the support he can get: support to pay his staff, run the studio and feed himself. He is attacking hypocritical and powerful leaders publicly thus putting himself and his family jeopardy. I think he is a courageous and brilliant man.

Don't be fooled by Voris's bravado. He had a weekly tv show here on some dippy offbeat channel a few years ago. It was cancelled for lack of sponsors. Then he had a radio show for a few months sponsoring himself with his 401K. It went off the air when he ran out of money. Then he borrowed to start up his internet TV which is on the verge of going broke. Is that what you call "doing well"? If he's such a red hot Catholic, why didn't he stay in the seminary??? Because he could never take the vow of OBEDIENCE. He lives in an Alternate Universe with his own "special" version of Catholicism. It's all about HIM and his desperate need to CONTROL the fools who drink his KoolAid. Oh and did I mention---he's a flaming closet case to boot.

For Craig;

Wow there's some real nastiness there. Its now June2010 and VORIS is still going strong and commanding more respect because he speaks an inconvenient Truth. Indeed, it's hard not to accept that God guided him to his present project through some difficulties of 'training' and whilst he occasionally goes too far, he's far more credible than those who can only offer lies, cynicism or maliciousness. Voris is trying to help folk even those who don't want to be helped.
