From the only reliable source of Catholic news on the net, Eye of the Tiber:
Roman Catholic dioceses in California began allowing recreational heresy Monday in what has been seen as a milestone in the mainstreaming of dissent.
Lines formed outside churches licensed to allow heresy hours before Mass and CCD times, and RCIA teachers said they had stocked up in expectation of huge demand for new types of heresy.
“There’re bigger crowds here than I saw at all the Christmas masses put together this year,” said pastor of St. Basil Catholic Church, Matthew Dreyer, whose Legalize Dissent campaign has garnered thousands of followers on social media. “We’ve had dissent for decades now, but we’ve been marginalized to more liberal parishes. Now we can finally come out of the shadows and into the rad trad parishes.”
At one Catholic church in San Diego, hundreds lined up for hours to have a chance to be among the first to teach heresy at an RCIA or CCD class at a liturgically orthodox parish.
“There’s really nothing that the priests can do now to stop it,” said California native, Connie Schick. “The USCCB gave us a voice—they gave us a vote and we did it. Finally, we did it!”
Speaking with EOTT, Dreyer said he expected a 25% bump in dissent overnight, but that it could be as high as 50%.
California is the sixth state to allow the use of recreational heresy, and as one of the largest concentrations of Catholics in the United States, it has been widely seen as the corner stone on which legalization of mainstream heterodoxy will be built in the country.
Go here to read the comments. PopeWatch managed to get the Pope on the phone for a comment:
“Gringo, I have warned you to stop calling me! Of course California has embraced recreational heresy. They are all loons out there, especially the bishops I have appointed. In the 2005 Conclave I told Mahony that if he didn’t stop chattering I would have to use my rosary as a garotte. No, you may not quote me!”. With that, the Holy Father brought the call to an end.
