Skip to comments.Some In Mainstream Media In Full Anti-Catholic Meltdown Mode
Posted on 02/23/2012 6:52:12 AM PST by marshmallow
Some in the mainstream media are so angry about the existence of faithful Catholics that they cant help themselves in becoming unhinged. I will reference the main points, but suffice to say that I could write a book on the subject. These latest quotes have caused me to scramble to get information to my editor so as to include at least some of this in my upcoming book; The Tide Continues To Turn Toward Catholicism, a follow up to my first book. For starters it seems some in mainstream media are so ignorant of religion that even though 90% of Americans belong to some form of Christianity, Judaism and Islam, which all believe that evil is manifested through a figure known as Satan, the media still finds it in their power to mock anyone who thinks evil exists. Some in the media seemed to take glee in pouncing on Catholic and former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum. He was called a kook, a nut, deranged, a mullah and an ayatollah, not by nameless posters on leftwing blogs but named writers in serious newspapers.
Leading the charge was that maven of militant secularism and angry people everywhere, Maureen Dowd. Here are some of the spoiled nuggets from her dung heap. She calls Santorum a mullah who wants to take, women back to the caves. She goes on to deride anyone who actually believes in the teachings of the Catholicism that she once practiced.
Never one to miss a chance at apostasy and heresy; Chris Matthews entered the fray with both of his tingling legs. Matthews claimed the reason the Catholic Church is growing is because homophobic converts are coming into the Church. It would appear that Mr. Matthews is off his meds. Has anyone ever informed mister leg tingler.........

The DLEMM - Dominant Liberal Establishment Mass Media - doesn't reflect mainstream thought. It shouldn't be referred to as such.
Behind every double standard lies an unconfessed single standard.
that would be a diocese-wide problem here.
But even our liberal bishop signed that letter of protest.
If he had signed a letter of protest about some obscure military or economic action of our government - you could be sure that would have been a hot topic of discussion.
Now maybe I missed the righteous anger over this power grab - and maybe someone simply hasn’t told me about it.
Or....there isn’t any righteous anger.
Yeah, well, I’m sure it’s best for all that I didn’t learn about it until after the fact.
**The Tide Continues To Turn Toward Catholicism**
So many deny this.
“Blessed are they who are persecuted......”
I didn’t think the woman character was asinine. Just a faithful practicing Lutheran(LCMS or WELS variety) laywoman following what her church has taught for centuries. Disclaimer: I’m a Presbyterian(PCA) layman who has no problem voting for a faithful Roman Catholic(like Santorum) who shares my views on life, family and religious liberty.
Thanks for your honest sharing. We have a lot more in common than what we differ on!
First They Came for the Jews
First they came for the Jews
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the Communists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left
to speak out for me.
~Pastor Martin Niemöller
Community and individuality are not opposites. People cannot survive on their own. When the odds are stacked against you, you must rally with the oppressed and hated.
When a growing oppressive regime is taking hold, you must act, otherwise you will soon face your enemy alone and hopeless.
Strength of community is a strength as much as individualism, as long you are willing to face weaknesses in your own community. Ignoring slacking values will mean that you will be rallied against by those you oppress.
Niemöller affirms we must rally against unhealthy organized regimes. We must also stay vigilant with those that appear to be good natured, as all organisation attracts corruption. Niemöller also warns us that if it is you who are corrupt, then you will face a stronger combined force of foe!
Catholic social ministry begins and ends with Jesus Christ, he said. If it doesnt, it isnt Catholic.
can't argue with that.
