    Just apply the regulations we already have, against the barbarians now in control of the Vatican. I'm addressing you-all, Al Kresta, Prof Janet Smith & Dr Greg Popcak, as a group because you three, prominent Catholic figures are involved in the effort to recover from institutional sexual abuse; you are mentioned in Rod Dreher's American Conservative" article "Where To Now, Bishops? And Laity? wrapping up the recent US Catholic Bishops' conference; and you are at least peripherally involved in the No More Victims support group.This is to question, whether significant traction in the slippery, post-MacCarrick abuse situation can't be gained...

    Since 1991, H*yas for Choice has been allowed to promote abortion, contraception, homosexuality and transgenderism at Georgetown University, the oldest Catholic campus in the nation. According to its web site, "H*yas for Choice (HFC) is the pro-choice, sex-positive, reproductive justice group at Georgetown University.* We are an anti-racist, queer-affirming organization working to provide sexual health options for people of all genders on Georgetown's campus." H*yas for Choice openly attacks Catholic morality, sponsoring annual events such as Choice Week.  In addition to hosting a talk by Dr. Laura Meyers, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington, D.C., the "week...

    "Once upon a time in a primitive land of polytheist idolaters far, far away, an egomaniac zealot with high ambitions hit on a bright idea. On learning of the ancient Jewish prophecy of a Messiah, and the newish Christian communities’ worship of Jesus as the “Chosen One”, he decided to nominate himself as the latest in the line – the Messenger of Allah and the Seal of the Prophets. If the Angel Gabriel could give the name ‘Jesus’ to Mary, why couldn’t Gabriel be recruited to authenticate Muhammad’s pronouncements? The polytheists who worshipped 360 idols in the Ka’aba of Mecca...

  • Pastors Can Get out the Vote in their Sunday Sermons.

    10/07/2018 6:14:42 PM PDT · by cradle of freedom · 35 replies
    Pastors can do very much to get out the Christian vote. They have a captive audience in their churches every Sunday so why not take advantage of that in a way that is totally legal. Several weeks before the election just do a sermon on the Christian duty of patriotism. Yes, patriotism is a Christian virtue. Christians are called to be faithful stewards and looking out for our children's future is part of that duty. Also being responsible with the public's money is also a very important duty of being a Christian. We have a duty to winnow out the...

    Here's another collection of my tweets to my Bishop, mostly about --- what shall we call it? --- The Situation. These won't all be recyclable, but I hope some of them will. Feel free to use any of them. It's just tiny way, I suppose, to offer filial correction or support. We must obey God, not men --- as our first Pope, St. Peter said. God bless Bishop Strickland. Abp Vigano had the courage to speak up clearly and pay up personally. Let the Pope answer Vigano's Testimony if he can. The silence -- Omerta --- is not going to...

So here, please free free to use my hand-crafted artisanal right-sized tweets to my bishop over the past couple weeks: Speaking of "news": USCCB statement saying that...

    More than 44,000 Catholic women have signed a letter pressing Pope Francis to explain exactly when and how he found out about sexual abuse and misconduct allegations against a high-ranking former cardinal. Text: Sign here“Our hearts are broken, our faith tested, by the escalating crisis engulfing our beloved Church,” states the passionately worded letter organized by the Catholic Women’s Forum. “We are angry, betrayed and disillusioned.” Although the Vatican has known about his allegedly abusive behavior with seminarians since at least 2000, McCarrick received clerical promotions and continued publicly representing the church, The Associated Press reports.Soon after Vigano’s allegations came...

    FULL TITLE: Where does your bishop stand?: Catholics launch new website to track bishops’ fidelity August 31, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) — LifeSiteNews launched a new website today dedicated to providing U.S. Catholics with evidence of whether their bishop is faithful or unfaithful to perennial Church teaching. Faithful Shepherds helps hold American bishops accountable by providing years, sometimes decades, of past tweets, public speeches, sermons, actions, pastoral letters, and diocesan guidelines. Faithful Shepherds currently gives evidence of where U.S. bishops stand on nine issues: Amoris Laetitia, pro-life leadership, homosexuality, abortion politics, contraception, “LGBT” ideology, liturgy, marriage and family life, and education.

    Thanks to Angus king, Chellie Pingree, Susan Collins, and their flunkies in the NEA, the public schools, the left wing socialist media, the party of the democrat, and the cowardly Patriot community that refuses to do anything but wimper, after 18 months it seems the White Horse is being put out to pasture.

    Cardinal Blase Cupich speaks to NBC 5's Mary Ann Ahern about the explosive allegations of a former high-ranking church official who claims the Pope knew about charges of sexual misconduct against an American cardinal and says that cardinal was responsible for Cupich's appointment in Chicago. "The Pope has a bigger agenda," Cardinal Cupich said. "He's got to get on with other things, of talking about the environment and protecting migrants and carrying on the work of the church. We're not going to go down a rabbit hole on this."

    It’s really not that often one can say with certainty that we witnessed history being made at a specific moment, but Saturday brought such an occasion with a Vatican announcement that Pope Francis had accepted the resignation of Cardinal Theodore McCarrick from the College of Cardinals. It’s an unprecedented move in the United States, the first time an American cardinal has ever renounced his red hat, and it’s the first time anywhere in the world has exited the college altogether facing accusations of sexual abuse. It is, therefore, the most tangible confirmation to date from Francis that when he says...
