Meyer said the letter is troubling because its reflects a renewed "push for orthodoxy on social and sexual issues."

He says that like this is a bad thing.

"Donovan added that concerns were raised among church liberals by the bishop's activism on the abortion issue, his reinstatement of the Latin Mass and other issues."

Awwww...the poor liberals don't like the fact that this good and holy bishop actually takes the Church's teachings seriously. Tough! Gee, I'm starting to wish I had never moved away from the Phoenix area, now that they actually have a bishop with some spine.

Rev. Vernon Meyer finds that the letter he received from Bishop Olmsted is troubling.
Meyer ought to be troubled since he seems to have been a leader among the initial 60 Valley Clerics to sign the No Longer Silent Declaration in January of 2003.
He probably will be troubled again when the Bishop learns that a few years ago, he wrote in a letter to the Editor of the Diocesan newspaper, The Catholic Sun, that he is a "proud member" of "Call To Action".
The parish, St. Patrick's in Scottsdale, where he is a "Sunday Associate", is well known for its liberalism.

Tom Donovan is probably also a bit troubled. He ought to be as a member of Call To Action. Of course Donovan has an additional reason to be troubled since he "attends 'services' at the Franciscan Renewal Center which is on the USA List of 'Gay Friendly' Parishes and well worth (begging for) an investigation.

The CTA/AZ Newsletter of March, 2000 contains information:
-About Meyer sharing "new perspectives on American Catholicism and American Culture" on June 8, 2000 for CTA members and guests.
-That Donovan is the Treasurer and Member of the Board of Directors of CTA/AZ.
-And some insight, on page 2, of the early relationship between the people of NLS-CFJ and CTA/AZ in the promotion by the "Clergy for Justice" of "two published authors on the Bible and Homosexuality" held at Asbury United Methodist Church on April 28, 2000. Asbury plays a leadership role in NLS.
-That a (current?/former?) Diocesan employee is a CTA member, a member of the CTA/AZ Board, and the Co-Editor of the CTA/AZ New Directions newsletter.

The CTA/AZ Newsletter of May, 1999 contains information:
-On Page 6 about "An Evening with Fr. Vernon Meyer held on May 13, 1999 at St. Stephen's Episcopal Church Campus. The notice states that: "Vernon is leaving the Valley in August 1999 for several years to do doctoral work at the University of Dayton in Theology and Culture. The evening program is a celebration of Vernon's prophetic ministry among us. He will present on the topic, 'A Vision of An Authentic Church for the Future.' Come and celebrate with Vernon and wish him well in his new pursuits."

This sign is for everything diverse that is not sinful.
It lists the 2 causes of our Church problems as stated
by Bp. F.B. at the USCCB meeting in Dallas.
It is against Dissent and Sodomy.

More details will be posted as time and events permit.
