FWIW, Overberg did it again, denying Christ’s saving/salvific action on the cross before the students and baby-boomers of Xavier University’s Bellarmine Chapel on Palm Sunday to kick off Holy Week, a time when Catholics are supposed to focus on the very things he would have us repudiate. Link and snippets are below. Short of delivering these remarks from the lectern without pants, I don’t know what this guy has to do to get the attention of local Catholic officialdom in Cincinnati.

(Perhaps likening the local bishop to a seminary rector would do the trick.)

“… remember that we don’t have to believe in a vengeful God who demands atonement. Jesus died by human decree not divine decree. … God did not want Jesus’ suffering and does not want ours.”
