    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette ^ | 6/21/12 | Patrick J. Reilly
    In the new Andy Garcia movie "For Greater Glory," based on a true story of 1920s Mexico, Catholics rebel against a national government determined to suppress their church. Their battle cry is "Viva Cristo Rey!" ("Long live Christ the King"). In the United States, our cherished freedom of religion means that we need not fear government interference in the practice of our faith. It's enshrined in the First Amendment to the Constitution and the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act. But as of Monday, Duquesne University is facing a threat to its religious liberty, just one more example of our federal...

  • 200 British SSPX Faithful Decry Union with Catholic Church in Open Letter to Bishop Fellay

    Over 200 followers of the Society of Saint Pius X (SSPX) have signed a letter publicly castigating Bishop Fellay for dealing with the Pope and the Catholic Church. Below is the public open letter being circulated by the SSPX parishioners. It should be noted that the letter is signed by a founder of the International Third Position and various members and organizers of a pro-Bishop Williamson internet forum that is tolerant of antisemitism.

    WASHINGTON, May 30, 2012 ( - One of the Catholic universities joining the barrage of lawsuits against the Obama administration over its birth control mandate says that the White House has “showed no sign of taking seriously” the objections of religious employees. Lawrence Morris, general counsel for the Catholic University of America, told in an email that the school’s own attempts to reason with the administration, including a letter from CUA President John Garvey to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, were not met with meaningful dialogue. Morris also criticized the “accommodation” proposed by Obama earlier this year...

    Ah, those nasty Catholics, trying to force their beliefs on others by refusing to let the government make them violate their principles and consciences! Here is the first slice of moldy editorial bread: Thirteen Roman Catholic dioceses and some Catholic-related groups scattered lawsuits across a dozen federal courts last week claiming that President Obama was violating their religious freedom, by including contraceptives in basic health care coverage for female employees. It was a dramatic stunt, full of indignation but built on air.And the other thin slice, in conclusion: This is a clear partisan play. The real threat to religious liberty...

    ( - Having organized 43 plaintiffs—including the archdioceses of New York and Washington and the University of Notre Dame—to file 12 different lawsuits against the Obama administration last Monday alleging the administration is violating the religious freedom of Catholics, the Catholic bishops of the United States are now preparing Catholics for what may be the most massive campaign of civil disobedience in this country since the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and early 1960s. “Some unjust laws impose such injustices on individuals and organizations that disobeying the laws may be justified,” the bishops state in a document developed to...

    The counter-attack has begun. You knew it was coming, didn’t you? For weeks now the American bishops have been marching in lockstep unity, completely unanimous in their opposition to the HHS contraceptive mandate. The Catholic hierarchy has been headed into a showdown with President Obama, and not a single bishop had shown any inclination to back away from the fight. But you knew it couldn’t last. And it didn’t. This week Bishop Stephen Blaire became the first prelate to break stride, voicing his misgivings about the confrontation. Oh, Bishop Blaire wasn’t suggesting that the Catholic hierarchy should accede to the...

    The U.S. Catholic Church will hold an event this summer called "Fortnight for Freedom" to bring attention to religious freedom issues. The Christian Post has learned that discussions are underway to include evangelical organizations with these events. Evangelical organizations have expressed solidarity with Catholic leaders who oppose the Obama administration's birth control mandate, which, they argue, is a religious freedom issue. In separate interviews, Sister Mary Ann Walsh, a spokesperson for the USCCB, and Galen Carey, vice president for government relations at the National Association of Evangelicals (NAE), both confirmed that discussions have taken place on how evangelicals might coordinate...

    Cardinal Donald Wuerl is archbishop of Washington.From an early age, Catholics are taught to see God in their neighbor. The Catholic faith finds its fullest expression in a loving act of sacrifice by one stranger for another. Imagine the church’s surprise, then, to be told by the federal government that when a Catholic organization serves its neighbors, it isn’t really practicing its religion. That is the unacceptable principle at the heart of a mandate, issued in February by the Department of Health and Human Services, that requires religious organizations to provide health-care coverage for abortion-inducing drugs, contraceptives and sterilization procedures,...

Led by Cardinal Dolan, the US Bishops have been rock solid on this issue and they continue to impress. It is immensely gratifying to say that while this steadfast resistance to such infringement might not have been expected from the Bishops just a few short years ago, we...

    On Monday, May 21, Cardinal Dolan, President of the USCCB, applauded 43 dioceses, hospitals, schools and church agencies for filing 12 lawsuits around the nation saying the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services contraception coverage mandate violates religious freedom. The Boston Archdiocese was not one of those dioceses. St. Anthony of Padua said, “Actions speak louder than words” and the actions of Cardinal O’Malley make it increasingly obvious that our Cardinal is lacking in courage.

In an interview this morning with Boston's FOX 25 News, Steve Guillotte, Director of Pastoral Services for Saint Francis Xavier, said the church has received a number of menacing, obscenity laced phone calls, including one threatening to burn the church down.

    Grand Rapids Mayor George Heartwell has apologized for calling pro-life advocates “Forces of Darkness” after he received significant criticism following his using the term to describe pro-life people at a fundraising event for the Planned Parenthood abortion business. Heartwell defended taxpayer funding for the organization that does more than 25 percent of the abortions nationwide. However, his defense of taxpayer funding for the abortion giant is not what is making waves — instead, a comment about pro-life advocates is upsetting pro-life people. “Yet, every year, the forces of darkness seek to deprive women of the health and education they need...

    There is much speculation that the proposed accord with Rome and the SSPX will result in two radical factions leaving the SSPX. The two groups are the French faction of the SSPX, noted by their devotion to the ideology of Charles Maurras and represented by Bishop Tissier de Mallerais, and the fascist faction of the SSPX, represented by Bishop Richard Williamson. While this event would have the good result of removing the extremists from the SSPX before its reunification with Rome, I am not certain this will occur. It is very possible that these radicals will come into the established...
