Term Limits and the Catholic Church

Recently, Thomas Sowell wrote an excellent piece dealing with term limits. The point he made is that if the idea behind limits was to rid us of those people who spend their entire lives doing little more than voting, we’ve gone about it in a really stupid way.

For one thing, as we’ve seen here in California, it merely means that once one of these palookas has termed out in, say, the state assembly, he merely runs for the state senate or for governor or lieutenant governor or attorney general. In short, he moves on, he doesn’t move out.

Another problem is that once elected to the House or Senate, where term limits are never even considered, it’s next to impossible to dislodge the likes of Harry Reid, Charley Rangel and Henry Waxman.

There is no reason why we should have an actual class of politicians, people, in short, who never have to do an honest day’s work in their lives. And why should a Supreme Court judge be ensconced for life? For one thing, it presumes that we need professionals in those jobs. We don’t. In fact, those who decide on politics as a career are the very people who shouldn’t be there.

I realize that some would argue that you at least need specialized knowledge to serve as a member of the high court, but the fact that so many decisions come down to 5-4 votes suggests that you merely have to possess an opinion, not a law degree.

And it’s my opinion that the ongoing debate over same-sex marriages is much ado about nothing. A few gay activists have pretended that it’s a civil right, but, if so, has there ever been a civil right that’s been taken advantage of by fewer people than this one? We passed women’s suffrage and women got out and voted. We passed the Civil Rights Act and black people went to the schools of their choice and sat wherever they liked on the bus and at the lunch counter. But when it comes to same-sex marriage, it’s mainly sound and fury signifying nothing.

I know that whenever gay marriage legislation is passed, the left-wing news media is sure to share photos of the ecstatic couples. But I am beginning to think that I’m seeing the same couples time and again. I don’t believe that any significant number of lesbians have tied the knot, and I’m willing to bet it’s an even smaller percentage of gay men.

And after all the posturing over gays in the military, I have yet to hear of large numbers of gay enlistments. And I’m sure I would have heard of them, thanks to a liberal media that would be certain to ballyhoo the glad tidings.

If gays had been as successful at selling a soft drink brand as they have been at selling their very odd life style, we’d all be drinking Dad’s Root Beer or Diet Pepsi. How successful? Well, in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, hardly the east coast answer to San Francisco, the Green Street United Methodist Church is now refusing to perform marriage ceremonies for straight couples until same-sex marriage is legalized in that state. What’s more, they’re asking other churches to join the movement, and I have no doubt that other churches will follow their foolish lead.

A lesser man might go so far as to say there’s Methodism in their madness. I am that lesser man.

I confess I’m not a religious person, but even I’m aware that the Bible makes no bones about where it stands on the question of homosexuality. Now I’m not suggesting that gays should be stoned, but when the Bible refers to the practice as an abomination, where do churches get off promoting it? I mean, are there any lines in the sand? What’s next? Changing the 10 Commandments to the 10 Suggestions?

Even the Catholic Church is acting more like a social club than a religious denomination. Considering the damage it inflicted on itself first through the pedophile scandal and then through the ensuing cover-up, you would have thought the Vatican would have become proactive. Why is it, for instance, that the Church sits idly by while most Hispanic Catholics voted overwhelmingly for Obama, a man who proudly promotes abortions and homosexuality? Is denunciation from the pulpit a thing of the past?

And why is it that Catholics such as Patty Murray, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi and a bunch of people named Kennedy, are never excommunicated for not merely championing abortions, but funding Planned Parenthood and doing everything in their power to make abortions readily accessible to teenagers?

It’s one thing, after all, to render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, but if even abortion is Caesar’s, what’s left to render unto the Lord besides a few bucks in the collection plate?

I say if the Church wants people to pay attention to it without having to wait around until Pope Francis dies or retires, it should start booting these high-profile backsliders out on their collective fannies.

Otherwise, when it comes to their members as well as their leaders, we have to assume that the Elks, the Moose and the Rotarians, all have higher standards than the Catholic Church.

    Burt, this is an important article that I wish every priest would read. While sometimes a Church leader will comment against gay marriage and abortion, what is ever really done about it? Excommunication is important because it holds people accountable and lets others know that they must either obey Catholic doctrine or they will be out as well.
    Hispanic Catholics who voted for Obama are probably like a lot of other Christians and Catholics. They were baptized as Catholics, but they do not follow their faith. We see this in the black community as well. An overwhelming majority of blacks label themselves as Christians, then go to the polls and vote for political characters who are pro-abortion, against religious liberty and against individual freedom in general, a God-given right. It’s sad and pathetic and it’s not just the minorities. It seems these days most people who vote don’t know what they’re doing. And most Catholics and Christians are by no means devout if they bother practicing their faith at all.

    The problem you have posted about terms limits is only because the suggested terms limts that typically come up are not thought out to the point they become meaningful. Often it is suggested that the logistics of travel back in the days of our forefathers made the concept of career politicos alien to their thinking and therefore unthought, but tat does not jive with the reality that they were rebelling against the feudal system of royal class and underclass to begin with, or that many of the founding fathers did indeed become career politicians, either well seated in their post as Congressman or else cycling through the three dividions of our federal govt.
    If we are truly serious about enacting term limits at the federal level (and hope that the states individually or collectively follow suit), all we need to do is be specific in our wording of the Amendment it would take to achieve this goal. I wil lassume that the thinking readers would agree that the work of Congress is too important to leave to rookies every single cycle; better to “retire” a percentage each cycle to retain some degree of experience but limit the tenure so that new blood will be infused on a regular basis, and not simply after someone fets so Byrd old that they just have to hang it up or get caught in some scandal real or implied that drives the mob to pick the first available warm body that promises the largest voting block a bunch of largess.
    My suggestion would be that we limit the President to a single term, and split the difference between the two four-year terms allowed by making it a six-year term. I also suggest getting rid of the running mate VP, very few of which have actually be of Presidential merit (more often being chosen to appeal to fringe group in the victor’s party). The exiting President would be the incoming President’s WP for the first 3 years of the new term, at which point we would elect the next President, who would be VP until the President retires. This allows for experience of Office to be on hand while the new President is adjusting to the job, and then allowing the next President to have 3 years of firsthand training about what is going on before he or she is handed the reins. Yes this means you can have a split party team, but perhaps that will just encourage us to find more common ground and teach our Commander in Chief to be more open to working on compromise to make his agenda more workable and palatable to all of us.
    I also suggest that Congress be changed to five year terms for the House and ten year terms for the Senate with a total of twenty years period for your career in Congress period. I also think that Congress should be rotated in their election like the Senate is now, to improve the continuity of govt. The added benefit would be fewer elections to be held, reducing the lies and bs being pumped at the masses, and making it less costly to be in Congress which would reduce the amount of favors owed to the patrons. So every year, 20% of Congress would face elections and every 2 years 20% of the Senate. I would also eliminate Congressional pension entirely; the would pay into Social Security like the rest of us and would have to put some away in IRAs for the future or else leave Congress and get a real job. I would keep the Presidential pension, because I believe that it truly is a very difficult job that most of us cannot fully comprehend, so one lucky Congressman or Senator every six years could get themselves a pensin, providing the bring enough to the table to win the job.
    I would limit the Supreme Court to a single fourteen-year term, with the longest serving to retire every two years. This would give each sitting President the chance to put three judges on the Bench, no more no less, barring the timely passing of a jurist (or the exit caused by some scandal worthy of removal). I understand why the Founders made teh Supreme Court the way it is, to remove all threats of removal from the decision making process of the cases that came before the Court. I do not think that a specified term limit would negate that. Besides, having a few Liberals on the Court now and then is not necessary a bad thing (Civil Rights would not have happened without the Lefties on the Bench).
    I believe that the needed Amendments can be written and passed, but it will take a lot of hard work on the part of some dedicated individuals and will certainly have to bypass the method of passing that directly involves Congress. Thos prostitutes (of both parties) will never do what the country needs if it derails their gravy train.

    Like so much liberal leftist attacks on our Const, our culture, our heritage, history and values, it may be that the Red State types might have to hunker down and nullify the insanity that is spouted from the Dem Legs, guvs, and even Congressional nit wits. The ongoing attacks on America, and what are really Const. rights like the 1st, 2nd and 10th amends. have gathered speed under the tyranny of our Mussolini on the Potomac, Reid and Pelosi and of course, the MSM. One knows that unless the GOP finally unites with Libertarians, Indies, TEAS, and the conserv Base, this will end badly for our Republic.

  • sheila0405

    On the Supreme Court issue, I wonder about doing away with the lifetime aspect of the appointment. God knows i don’t want the SCOTUS members running for office. On the other hand, if we impose term limits, then we are looking at the same litmus tests for replacing the justices when the terms come to an end. I guess I’ll stick with lifetime appointments for now. I think much of the problem with the Court is the proliferation of the media. With the advent of instant news from around the world, the Court is exposed to the same politicalization of life in the USA as anyone else. We think of the justices as somehow shielded from the fray, when that is not true at all. Individual justices have reactions to, and opinions about, the pertinent political issues of the day, as do we all.

    LLCisyouandme…you need to update your info on what the Catholic Church teaches! Back in the mid 1960′s, during Vatican II, the church came out and explicitly stated that the nuptual sexual , one-flesh union of a married couple has BOTH aspects of 1)to procreate, 2) for the purpose of bonding the husband and wife in a one-flesh union. The church stated then that if a couple cannot have children, aspect 2 is as worthy a goal as aspect 1. The church has NEVER taught that a couple HAS to have children…only that the couple be OPEN to life. Look it up.!

  • http://shawmut.blogspot.com/ Dave O’Connor

    We might ask why a non-Eropean pope? Look at where Islam is thriving? How are the shephards perfoming there.
    We look at anti-life measure in the US? Look at those you mentioned, Biden, Pelosi, etc.
    And, ur-historiclly, people marry each other; the state records, and churches and synagoues may report it’s witnessing, or act as ‘agency’. So, a spousa lagreement could be recorded in an attorney’s office. (Lunch or dinner at Mindy’s afterwards.)
    As a gay male (scrimmaging more than practising) Roman Catholic, I’m indifferent to the marriage thing – since the open sexuality of the 60′s and 70′s, I consider the issue counter-revolutionary.
    But I’m damned “Pee’oed” and at the “eloquant silence” from the pulpits at the slaughter of Christians and other confessions, and homosexuals.
    And evidently the same actors, Euro-prelates and Bidens, induilge in the same.
    (Anyone old enough to remember names like Stepinac and Mindzhenty?)

    • http://twitter.com/tumbledart8 Pat Comstock

      Yes, Dave. I’m old enough to remember both Stepinac and Mindzhenty. Eloquent silence is an accurate description of what is not going on in the Catholic pulpit. The Hudson Institute has just come out with a new book on this subject Christians being persecuted all over the world. The mainstream media won’t touch the subject. I am glad to see people like Anderson Cooper focus on the egregious mistreatment of gays, though. Pope Francis has been, himself, the object of persecution at times and he may surprise us all…this man has a back bone…he doesn’t care what “in crowd” thinks of him. You make some good points, Dave.

    Mr. Goldberg; warriors and fighters compose, roughly, 1% of any country’s population. These are the ones who drive-out the enemies – foreign and domestic. Warriors use the force or their weapons and fighters use the force of their knowledge; many use them both, because there is a warrior inside every fighter and vice-verse. But it takes a major event or disaster for those warrior/fighters to be recognized for what they are and for what they can do. The other 99% of the population are followers who, either tolerate or, take advantage of any situation. You are right: and the opportunity for those in the 1% is approaching fast. The rest will have ample time to re-read your article, after the battle drums go silent, and weep inside their caves!

    Since power in congress accrues with time served, people like Ted Kennedy, John McCain, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi accumulate a disproportinate influence not intended by the constitution. Just because MA has a homogenous population with liberal ideology that keeps electing the same person, they develop an inordinate degree of influence compared to a state that is less homogenous and keeps electing different people. I am a firm believer that the stranglehold that a few people exert over congress distorts the legislation and the will of the majority. I have concluded that the agendas of Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, John McCain and Charles Schumer do not coincide with the majority of the US population

The RCC could ask Biden, Kennedy, Kerry and Pelosi to leave, at least deny them communion at mass – they could call them haters of life, which they are reluctant to do – and they could begin a ‘campaign against homosexual behavior’. The infiltration conspiracy is alive and well – Satan is attempting to destroy our military, our churches and even our scouts.

    “Changing the 10 Commandments to the 10 Suggestions?” — one of the great sentences of our time. I am going to use this time and time again, maybe adding somthing about the Constitution being suggestions, too. But further though, I could’t follow the narrative from term limits (impossible since the Congress makes its own rules) to gay stuff to the Catholic Church. Too confusing to a mere human, Burt, please stick to one subject.
    The bottom line of it all is that the Progressives own this country and will create its own rights and privileges for its own supportive factions. The rest of us have no chance.

    If they legalize gay marriage but the Catholic church refuses to marry gay couples you know in 5 minutes there will be a multi billion dollar lawsuit against the Catholic church. The Catholic church will then be forced to marry gay couples. This will be the last crack in the Catholic church and it will crumble which is what gays really want. Then there are no moral standards by which human should act. No more 10 Commandments. Then our civilization will fold just like the mighty Greek & Roman civilizations did.

    I agree with most Burt, but I believe the founding fathers made the Supreme court a lifetime term to eliminate political influence. Did it work out? Not sure that it did.

      Wally C: Of course not. Before any justice is seated, he or she has to pass a political litmus test. It’s the same with tenure at universities. It was intended to protect professors from being scapegoated by future administrators. But the way it’s worked out, it simply gives tenured liberals the power to keep the institution from hiring conservatives to the faculty.

    Society has evolved on racial issues and womens’ issues, and similarly regarding gays.

      I’m a conservative and I don’t care about gay marriage. If gays want to get married, have at it. I agree that homosexuality, in the majority of cases, is not the individuals choice. I say let them get married. Although I don’t understand why a civil union with all the ensuing legalities isn’t good enough. Let them get married and it gives you left wingers one less thing to be whinny about. You don’t even know what a fascist is. Left wingers throw that word around a lot. But then like all screaming children, they have to draw attention to there never ending whining. So throwing labels around is their way of drawing attention to their B.S. As usual your arguments are based on feelings not facts. It’s never about the outcome or results with liberals, it’s about how good you feel about issues. I like the way liberals constantly talk about diversity and tolerance. You’re all for diversity on race, gender,sexual orientation, religion as long as it’s not Christian and culture. But have a profound intolerance to an opposite point of view. Damn the facts, I have to do what makes me warm and fuzzy inside. What you truly lack is a diversity of ideas. A diversity of view points. And the tolerance to accept another persons point of view, that doesn’t agree with yours. Liberals are without question the least tolerant people I have ever known.

None of us always has the perfectly mature response but, we should be working on it and at least have some idea in our minds of what we’re shooting for.

      • wally12

        I also consider myself conservative but I disagree with some of your view. The purpose of having the gay union called a marriage is strictly a means of destroying religion. For a few thousand years the word marriage has been accepted as the union of a man and a women. There are religions that have followed that concept and hold to that definition. What right does anyone outside of these religions to change that meaning? NONE. No person or government has that right. It has become the EXCLUSIVE right of those religions and people who believe that meaning. Can any of us change the meaning of a dog or cat? can we change the meaning of a zero calorie soda to a something like a high protein food without actually changing the ingredients? Of course not. I believe that the gay community can form a civil union and some so called religious organizations may even state that they will call it marriage. That doesn’t make it the true meaning. Therefore, the gay community needs to coin another word that describes their union so their word and its meaning doesn’t infringe on the rights of those who have established the meaning of marriage. Maybe they could can it Gayage? I’m for that. The other thing that I find baffling is why the SCOTUS can’t see that the meaning of this word is already taken and just tell those who want to infringe on the meaning to go suck lemons.

      Just curious, “I Hate Fascists”, why whenever anyone disagrees with your opinion do you resort to name calling? I honestly have never witnessed so much hate from a class/group of individuals. Whenever I encounter the hateful posts my first thought is “I have to pray for him/her”. And I pray daily that their hearts will be changed/softened. A hateful heart is more damaging both physically and emotionally than physiological disease. I don’t agree with you that all LGBT persons are wired differently. I believe that to be the case in a % of the group, however, sociological conditions play a definitive role in the lifestyle choice of a large percentage. The fact that you see the back and forth choices speaks to that. Heterosexual lifestyle to homosexual and from homosexual to heterosexual. I shared this link on twitter recently(http://www.todayscatholicnews.org/2012/05/defending-the-truth-about-marriage-a-matter-of-justice/#.UV9jZWA8vB4.twitter) and was bombarded with hate filled followers.
