'V/T' to Mark Shea...
Earlier this year, marriage advocate, Bai Macfarlane, publicly asked the Arlington Diocese to apply canon law to protect a wife and children in a scandalous divorce situation. Macfarlane sent her plea to Rev. Robert Rippy, the Arlington Diocese Defender of Justice. Fr. Rippy was provided public records showing a professed-Catholic husband impregnated an adulterous partner and was living with her and their baby. The children of his marriage (who are financially devastated with their mother) are forced to spend overnight visits with their father and his adulterous partner.
Macfarlane is the director of Mary's Advocates, upholding marriage in light of no-fault divorce. She says, "When the church in the U.S. remains silent as professed Catholics abandon their families using the civil divorce routine to pursue their individualist goals, the public is taught that the Catholic Church condones the practices of routine civil divorce."
Poor Bai, yet she's helping others while dealing with her own situation!
God help her!
