"Joy of Sex" Panel at Boston College

About 100 years ago, I was accepted by Boston College.  Didn't go there, but ya'know....

Anyhow, BC has provided a roster of ....ahhhh....interesting fellows.....who will address Amoris Laetitia (The Joy of Sex After Your First Marriage).  If you paid attention over the last 18 months, you'll recognize all the names.

...Cupich will attend the Boston-area event as will Cardinal Kevin Farrell, who was called to Rome from Dallas by Francis in 2016 to lead the Vatican's new Dicastery for Laity, Family and Life. Farrell will speak Oct. 5 as part of a panel on how the apostolic exhortation addresses those in Western cultures who have become disaffected by authority structures.

Keenan said the event will have a particular focus on hearing from those who have been involved with helping the European church better understand and implement Amoris Laetitia.

Speakers include German Bishop Franz-Josef Overbeck, who participated in the 2014 and 2015 Synods of Bishops that led to the exhortation; Malta Archbishop Charles Scicluna, who co-wrote a January 2017 document for Malta's priests on how to implement the exhortation in their country; and Jesuit Fr. Antonio Spadaro, a papal confidant and editor of the Italian magazine La Civiltà Cattolica.
Other bishops set to speak at the event include Atlanta Archbishop Wilton Gregory and San Diego Bishop Robert McElroy....

Abp. Chaput will not attend, but will send a sacrificial lamb delegate.  We hope that the delegate will have body armor.

We don't know why Planned Parenthood wasn't invited.

Shades of Humpty-Dumpty ... trying to put Amoris Laetitia 'back together' again i.e. make it acceptably orthodox.

A fruitless task guys. That train has left the station. But the usual suspects: Cupich, Farrell, McElroy, Scicluna and Spadaro don't realize it yet. What, no Tucho...?
