Skip to comments.O.C. woman removed from Air Force One press area (more info on "Rev" Lee)

A self-proclaimed Catholic priestess from Anaheim was removed from a press holding area at Los Angeles International Airport Thursday morning minutes before President Barack Obama was scheduled to arrive.
Brenda Lee, 58, of Anaheim, was carried off by airport security after she refused to leave the area, saying that she wanted to hand the president a letter denouncing the California Supreme Court for deciding Tuesday not to annul gay marriages in the state.
Lee was dressed in a cassock.
In a phone interview, Lee said that she is a Catholic priestess "with St. Juliana's in Fullerton," and that there are 60 other Catholic priestesses worldwide.
Father Paul Gins of St. Juliana's said that Lee is a member of the parish and a "well-meaning person," but that "she does not represent the church. We do not recognize women priests, and haven't for 2,000 years."
Lee said that her duties as a minister involve consecrating the host, and ministering to the disabled and elderly in convalescent homes.
She called the White House to request credentials for Obama's arrival, citing her involvement with the Georgia Informer, an independent black newspaper in Macon, Georgia.
At LAX this morning, Lee asked a Secret Service agent to take her letter to President Obama after learning that the president wasn't scheduled to take any questions at the appearance.
The staffer came and asked to see the letter. "He said his name was Worly but I doubt that was his real name," Lee said.

50 Years of Service
Everyday millions of Christians work in the background and no one knows their name, but GOD does. The Church recognizes large contributors and people with power.For more than 50 years, I have remained in the background until GOD placed me in the foreground. Though I have risked my life, it has been worth it. As I prepare to celebrate my former calling into the Church, not one priest has confirmed that he will stand with me tomorrow at my 50th Anniversary into the service of GOD. But I am excited for the chains have been broken. It does not matter if the Catholic Church does not recognize my thirty-three years of service. What matters is that nuns and Catholic women have seen me and they know that the time has come for them to step out on faith.
Many are called, but few are chosen. (Matthew 24:14) This is true of men and women; the Church is in turmoil because GOD did not choose many ministers and priests. These people have chosen to go into the profession for the benefits.
Today a parishioner gave me $5.00 for my 50th Anniversary. I appreciated the gift greatly because I knew it was all that she had. In 50 years, I have received $115.00 that went back to the Church. I have no place of honor at the banquet table and no one fixes my food, but this is a wonderful place to be; I know that I will receive my reward in heaven.

I was one of the first women to have my feet washed on Maundy Thursday in Rome by Father Paul Maloney, to sing at Santa Anna Catholic Church inside the Vatican, to be a dinner guest at the Franciscan Monastery. Father Michael Delay officiated at me wedding on June 27, 1974 at St. Peter Claver Catholic Church in Macon, Georgia. I have never known of the repercussions these men faced for their actions.
I thank all of the activity directors who have allowed me to server at their nursing homes and I thank my parishioners who are Catholics and Protestants. Without them I would not have a ministry. GOD BLESS You.

Yes, I know that this has already been discussed and laughed at, but I wanted to find out if this “priestess” was a lunatic or a part of the “womynpriests” movement. It appears she is the former.
ping for your lists
Apparently, Obama’s people didn’t want to give this woman’s letter to Obama, which was urging Obama to respect traditional marriage. So, they “carried her off”.... instead... LOL...
moonbats are swarming
the whole world is warming
and its hot hot hot
make a rap video and be famous!
Apparently, the Obama people didn’t want Obama to hear this... LOL...
The Birds Eye View
by Rev. Brenda Lee
Happy Mothers Day-There is no greater and holier job than that of a Mother. She is the first teacher of her children and teaches them godly values that carry them through their earthly life and back to heaven. She cares for them and puts them before her needs. She teaches them good manners and insists that they use them. She nurtures them when they are sick. When they make mistakes, she corrects them and sees to it that they own up to them. When it is time to release them, she gently shows them the door, but is there to advice when needed.
Miss California was striped of her title as Miss California when she was asked her views on same sex marriages and she stated that in her view marriage was between a man and a woman. The newspapers reported the truth at first. They changed the story and said that she lost the title because she had brest implants.
At some point the American public will realize that gays are taking over and that there is no freedom of speech for heterosexuals or Christians.
Gays represent a small percentage of the population, but they are powerful church leaders, politicians, judges, and movie executives. For the most part they are white males who have sexed themselves out on perverted sex and they are never satisfied. They will keep pushing for more and more sexual freedom (which include sex with children) in search of sexual gratification until they lead America to destruction unless they are stopped.
Gays have always existed; they have been an acceptable part of society because they kept their sex life private.
Gays accepted the fact that they were born gay, suffered sexual abuse or their parents wanted a child of the opposite sex. In the cause of sexual abuse, some children got through the painful experience by giving into the feelings that were forced through years of abuse and think that they are gay. Regards of how things happened, compassionate people have tried to understand. But the world has change and evil people such as Popes, cardinals, bishops, judges, and politicians have covered perverts who have preyed on children.
Last week a priest, who was molested by a priest at the age of 15 was forced out of the priesthood when he dared to speak to Church officials concerning his ordeal. He is asking that other priests speak out who have been molested.
Several months ago, the practice of priests sleeping with Protestant virgins before their marriage to Catholic males surfaced. A Catholic male and his would be bride went to speak to the priest concerning their marriage. The priest stated that he would have to try her out before the marriage. The girl told her mother. The marriage took place some months later.
President Barak Obama will be naming a Supreme Court judge in the near future. It is of the up most importance that he does not appoint a liberal judge. Christians and moralists must ask that he appoints a GOD Fearing judge to the post.
Now she knows who the devil is.
St. Julianna’s is a very small, quiet, suburban parish near Cal State Fullerton.
They are not ordaining women there, and I am quite certain that they would see this woman as a complete and total lunatic.
They are kind to put their views as diplomatically as they are.
You said — but I wanted to find out if this priestess was a lunatic or a part of the womynpriests movement.
Actually, she sounds ten times more intelligent than Obama does, when I read her writing in Post #7... :-)
If Obama was as smart as she was, then we might not have half the problems we do now... LOL...
“but I wanted to find out if this priestess was a lunatic or a part of the womynpriests movement. It appears she is the former.”
I think she’s BOTH!;) (No such job description as “priestess” exists in the Catholic Church) But of course we can’t expect the MSM to comprehend that...
I think she knew before she got there... :-)
You said — “... I am quite certain that they would see this woman as a complete and total lunatic.”
From what I was reading of what she wrote, in post #7, she sounds a whole lot smarter and much more sane than Obama does... but maybe that’s not saying too much... LOL...
” Father Michael Delay officiated at me wedding on June 27, 1974 ... “
Is she still married? How seriously did she take those vows?
Well, Catholic women priests can marry, didn’t you know?!
I suppose she will make the no fly list now.
It will not be noticed by the left
The sad thing is that I DO agree with her.
However, showing up in a cleric and presenting herself as a “Priestess” and an official recognized by her Dioceses and Parish does suggest something a bit off.
Of course, the MSM loves presenting these folks as loons since it colors the rest of us with the same brush.
What the H*ll is a “Catholic Priestess”? I’m Catholic and I’ve never heard of this?
