But he simply can't satirize Chicago Archbishop Blase Cupich. But he does get the heretofore unrevealed full-on Bear attack.
Cupich blandly suggested that the detestable practices of aborting babies and selling their body parts is no worse than our country's immigration policy (i.e. having one), joblessness, racism, the death penalty, ad nauseum. It looks like he inherited his predecessor's, Cardinal Joseph Bernardin of unhappy memory, "seamless garment," where you can't be pro-life unless you hew to the Democrat party platform.
His remarks about the Planned Parenthood atrocities are so stupefyingly brainless and cruel the Bear has literally nothing to satirize. By shamelessly playing the compassion whore, Cupich has stamped down with his feet the tiny, bloody corpses of aborted babies to render all injustices into a pale, uniformly level, anodyne paste. How the Hell did he miss Pope Francis' "the loneliness of the elderly?"
What does this tell us about Blase (handpicked by Pope Francis) Cupich?
- He's not very smart. Trot out whatever degrees or writings you care to, but no public official of even average intelligence would say something that stupid now.
- His judgment is poor. That tiny voice that tells normal people "stop, you're about to be an idiot" (substitute your choice of stronger description) is patently silent. Either that or he's establishing himself as the second coming of Joseph Bernardin and doesn't care what anyone except Pope Francis and other bishops think.
- He is desperate to polish his pan-compassion credentials. He's pushing the Pope Francis line and pushing it hard. (To be fair, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops was an embarrassment before Francis slipped onto the balcony.) He's a tail-wagging, slobbering dog trying to get a pat on the head from the most politically correct people in a godless culture. In other words, he's doing what got him where he is today.
- He hates the pro-life movement. There are videos. This is big news, horrible news. Imagine that, after the Charleston church shooting, he had said, "Well, this is indeed terrible, but no more terrible than people having a hard time trying to illegally enter this crappy, racist country." No, of course, that is impossible to imagine. Cupich is embarrassed by those rosary-waving fanatics at abortion clinics. On the other hand, Moloch doesn't bother him too much.
Well, at least he's safe from satire. You can't satirize someone who has made himself a poster child for everything wrong with American bishops, and, indeed the Roman Catholic Church.
