The only way that politics can be driven out of the Church is for a conversion of hearts for those people whose view is shaped by what they think are political views that oppose the Church.
Abortion isn’t a political issue, it’s a moral issue.
Traditional marriage isn’t a political issue, it’s a moral issue.
Fredom of religion and speech isn’t a political issue, it’s a moral issue.
Unfortunately too many people fall for the trap of thinking that because something is a right, it’s right. They fall into thinking that issues that have been made political are political.
Does the case of the terminated Macy’s employee who not knowing policy had changed wouldn’t let a man go into women’ changing room concern people? The guy was told the new policy and said he would comply. He got called on the carpet for this one incident three different times by HR who harassed him into admitting he was Catholic at which point they fired him for not thinking like a Macy’s employee? That isn’t disconcerting? The guy should have just known that policy had changed or is there no room at Macy’s for people who don’t go in lock step for radical left’s agenda?
How about doctors opposed to abortion and gender reassignment surgeries being stripped of their licenses? That doesn’t bother people? What about people being fined $125k for not baking a cake or taking pictures for SSA weddings? Are there not plenty of other bakers or photographers in any given area? Why target these people?
No, the Church doesn’t need to drive out politics, the parishioners need to drive it out of their own lives. If you don’t agree with Church moral teaching than you probably should consider leaving the Church because the Church is sham if goes changing the Bible arbitrarily. At that point it might as well just become another branch of Amnesty International. Turn the priests into social workers.
Our religion is to inform our politics, our politics are not to inform our religion.
