Priest Gives Obama's Mandate "The Finger (?)" (video)
LifeSiteNews/Youtube ^ | 2-2212 | John Jalsevac

Posted on 02/26/2012 2:37:05 PM PST by STARWISE

A priest named Fr. Leo Patalinghug has issued a somewhat unconventional and certainly attention-grabbing response to the Obama administration’s abortifacient birth control mandate.

No, he doesn’t actually give the President the finger, although it might look like it at first. But what he does give as a cogent and impassioned defense of freedom of religion from a Catholic perspective, and points out some critical ways in which Obama has broken his promises to people of faith.

KEYWORDS: contraception; frleopatalinghu; liar; obama
God bless you, Father. I pray more and more of the clergy and credible public authorities relentlessly and loudly proclaim the full-blown deception and despicable tyranny of this evil prevaricator and overlord in our WH.

Thanks, LMAO.

Not exactly what I expected. Don’t think he is actually a Catholic Bishop, but he is great at presenting the facts.

Wonderful video.

He’s not a bishop .. he’s a priest.
And he happens to have a

blog

Before concluding the Homily at today’s Mass, the Deacon went into an indepth explanation about Barry’s attack on Catholic institutions. He was right on concerning the details buried in Obamacare, but he went further and compared it to what the Hitler, Lenin and Stalin did. In other words, destroy religious freedom and you control the populace.

I noticed several parishioners walked out, but everyone was attentive and took it all in. My concern is 75% of those attending had no idea what he was talking about and probably went over their heads.

God bless your priest for his courage
in speaking about it from the pulpit.

Our priests won’t verbalize word ONE
..we had to read the UCCB letter in the
bulletin .. and when asked about the lack
of discussion from the altar about it, we
were told just that with an incomprehensible
defensiveness and brick wall: read the
bulletin.

Beyond cowardice. I’m so outraged.

I love the way Fr. Leo uses humor to get his points across in such a serious topic.

Fr.Leo Patalinghug is a Roman Catholic Priest, ordained for the Archdiocese of Baltimore on June 5, 1999. He works at Mount St. Mary's Seminary in Emmitsburg, MD

Thanks. I didn't know that. Maybe he can send a message to Gov. O'Malley.

THIS is the homily EVERY priest should be using.
Please listen. It is 11 mins of honesty about Obama’s war on the Catholic Church AND what to do about it.

Now THAT’s what folks should be hearing from every single church and temple pulpit in the nation! Thanks so much for posting. God bless him. Courage!

As I said to someone, if Obama can be allowed to succeed at this, WHAT CAN’T HE DO???

BTTT! I’m so very glad that our Bishops and Parish Priests are fighting back and taking a leading role in doing so.

You’re right, If Obama can get away with this then he can do whatever he wants.

So for those who walked out, are they in FAVOR of aborting babies?

If so, they should be barred from returning until they repent.
