Edit: Stop Voris found this youtube video interview between Patrick Coffin and Michael Voris. Coffin asks Voris what he thinks of Opus and Voris claims he has no connection with them. He even disparages Opus and admits he did receive a donation from an Opus member, but no big whoop. Voris. Sure, someone gives a substantial donation and they have no influence,
I got this from Randy Engel not long after she became aware of the video:
Hi Everyone – I was not acquainted with Mr. Coffin or his show prior to seeing this video so I had no biases either way.
Although Coffin said he wasn’t associated with Opus, this isn’t exactly true. First, Coffin worked with Catholic Answers which has strong Opus connections. He said he was not a member in any form, but attended OD Hours of Recollection. In any case, Coffin is openly pro-Opus.
I mention this because I think when Coffin brought up Opus, he was expecting to have Michael also comment favorably which is, happily, not the case.
Happy viewing, Randy
PS Also of interest are the comments in favor of Bishop Sheen late in the video. Sheen denied Genesis and believed that Teilhard de Chardin should be up for sainthood. Good grief!
