  • Cardinal Timothy Dolan slams Trump immigration crackdown as ""unbiblical "

    . Cardinal Timothy Dolan blasted the Trump administration’s policy of separating kids from their parents on Friday night, calling it “un-American and unbiblical.” The White House got into holy hot water this week when Attorney General Jeff Sessions and press secretary Sander Huckabee Sanders both referenced scripture to claim the administration has the moral authority to forcibly take kids away from parents if they cross the southern border illegally. “I mean, that’s just unjust. That’s un-American and unbiblical,” Dolan, leader of New York City’s 2.8 million Catholics, told CNN on Friday night. Sessions specifically cited the Apostle Paul who in...
  • Dolan: Pope’s Reported Remarks to Gay Man, While ‘Beautiful,’ Could Require Clarification

    05/23/2018 7:02:23 PM PDT · by marshmallow · 22 replies
    New York City, N.Y., May 22, 2018 / 08:30 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- The Archbishop of New York said Tuesday that while some recent comments about homosexuality attributed to Pope Francis are “orthodox teaching,” the pope's reported remarks could require clarification. Cardinal Timothy Dolan affirmed the pope’s recent affirmation of God’s love for a gay man with whom the pontiff visited in Rome, saying: “Jesus would have said that, and so would I. That’s conservative, traditional, Catholic, orthodox teaching. The ‘Catechism’ insists on that.” “While any sexual expression outside of a man and woman in marriage is contrary to God's purpose,...

    I now have quite a few emails in my box about the fashion “gala”… “gay-la”?… in NYC inspired by ecclesiastical dress of all kind, aided and abetted by “the Vatican”.It was a night that would have made any Jesuit swell with pride.Here is something of the inside story of how the Met’s Costume Institute convinced the authorities in Rome to cooperate.  HEREI’ve now seen photos from the gay-la.   HERE  I warn you.  It’s the perfect storm of ugly, stupid, vulgar, creepy, sacrilegious and also blasphemous.  It is perverse.  I suspect you can find better taste at ComicCon.

    Dolan, The Met & The Politics of Carnival Maureen Mullarkey May 9, 2018 The question begs to be asked: What is the point of Cardinal Dolan? Whatever vocation he might once have espoused has dissolved in the acid of celebrity. He is an embarrassment to his office, and a disincentive to every serious-minded, diligent working priest in his archdiocese. Let him retire to the Hamptons, or South Beach, some glittering water hole where he can do what he is best at—glad-handing. He is an episcopal show-boater, the grinning face of a hierarchy desperate for the moment’s approval.Timothy Cardinal Dolan, hail-fellowing...

    Wednesday, May 9, 2018 A Tale of Two Clergypersons Edit: remember when Bishop Rogelio Plano was arbitrarily dismissed and had the door slammed on his face when he came to Rome shortly after to ask why, and died shortly after?  It was clear to us then that it had to do with him calling out one of his fellow bishops and accusing him of being an aberrosexual, as well as being a victim of his own success, growing more vocations in this seminary than all the rest combined. Even the Vatican admitted it had nothing to do with accused predator,...

    Liberal commentator Piers Morgan has once again broken ideological ranks, this time penning a column expressing his disgust over how “a bunch of flesh-flashing celebrities” disrespected Catholicism with their sacreligious costumes at the Met Gala. “I'm a Catholic,” Morgan wrote for the Daily Mail. “Not the most devout you'll ever meet, I'll admit. But I was brought up a Catholic – I even received not entirely successful spiritual guidance from nuns as a teenager! – and I still consider myself to be a Catholic. I know many people don't believe in any God or religion, let alone Catholicism, and I...

    For the fourth year in a row, openly gay groups will march under their own banner in a parade founded to honor Ireland's patron saint — as the archdiocese of New York looks the other way. Only this year, they will be given pride of place: marching at the front. The 2018 New York St. Patrick's Day Parade will feature two gay groups: Out@NBC-Universal and Lavender and Green Alliance. On Thursday, a parade spokesman told Church Militant that the initial controversy is waning. "That's pretty much disappeared," he said. "No one's brought it up, there's been no comment, no media references. You're the first one...

    After the murderous attacks by a terrorist who mowed down kids and pedestrians with a rental truck in New York City, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo made a startling admission: He actually uttered the forbidden words, “Radical Islam.” He further revealed that the terrorist had been radicalized not in his home of Uzbekistan, but only after his arrival in the United States. Not surprisingly, NBC News offered this headline in reporting the massacre: “Muslim Americans again brace for backlash after New York attack.” Not to be outdone, Cong. Jerrold Nadler (D., N.Y.) bellowed tired banalities on MSNBC, wrapping up with...

    Two left-leaning Catholic bishops, along with “married” homosexual partners, celebrated a special Mass for "Families of the LGBT Community" in San Diego last weekend. The event commemorated the 20-year anniversary of a controversial U.S. bishops’ letter on homosexuality that was censured by the Vatican within a year of its release.   Bishop John Dolan, an auxiliary bishop in the Diocese of San Diego, presided over the October 7 mass commemorating the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops' (USCCB) letter on homosexuality "Always Our Children.”  The mass, concelebrated with San Diego Archbishop Robert McElroy and 16 other clergy, took place at St....

    By now it should be clear that homosexualist priest Fr. James Martin, S.J. must have some pretty powerful protectors within the Church, clerics who are either homosexual themselves or in league with such men for whatever reason. In a stunning development, Church Militant has learned and confirmed that the sodomy-promoting Fr. Martin has been selected as the keynote speaker for this coming October's big deal meeting for the very big deal Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem. Here is a copy of the letter obtained exclusively by Church Militant, announcing Martin's appearance. It was sent out to all...

    EDITORPope Francis speaks during his general audience in St. Peter's Square at the Vatican March 15. (Credit: CNS/Paul Haring.)If all you had to go by in judging Catholic reaction to Pope Francis were press treatments and social media, you'd think it's an all-or-nothing war between devoted supporters and fanatical critics. In the trenches, however, what you find is a spirit of root enthusiasm and loyalty, tempered with a critical edge on specific points depending on what's most important to a particular person.

    How homosexual priests have created "gay affirming" dissident groups Toronto's de facto Dignity chapter, All Inclusive Ministries There is a major homosexual takeover crisis in the Catholic Church. The result of decades of infiltration in the priesthood has created an unprecedented crisis. A combination of blackmail, cowardice, and the reality that some bishops are themselves practicing homosexuals has led to the mushrooming of dissenting homosexual organizations. There are estimates that the number of homosexual clergy could be between 50-70%. Even if it were 10%, a small highly organized cabal will quickly establish total control over a diocese or seminary.

They're unisex (which isn't the issue) but they're disgusting; they really should have an attendant, which I'm sure would cut down on the things we all know happen in unattended club bathrooms, but never say out loud (online at least)."Therapy...

    Monsignor Michael Hull, an extremely close associate of the archdiocese's vicar general, Msgr. Greg Mustaciuolo, had a series of very plum assignments in the archdiocese. Sources tell Church Militant that this was owing to the nature of the close relationship between Hull and Mustaciouolo, a relationship where they wore matching Mickey Mouse sweaters while also overnighting at the archdiocese's seminary, St. Joseph's in the Dunwoodie neighborhood of Yonkers. Observers thought it was strange that Mustaciuolo would overnight at the seminary because his residence was just a short ride away in Manhattan. Mustociuolo made sure that Michael Hull was well provided...

    LGBTQ activists threatened "large-scale violence," rioting and "possible deaths" if they were not allowed to participate in Sunday's St. Patrick’s Day Parade, parade organizers said. According to parade officials, Boston Police said homosexuals bused in from other states to "disrupt" the festivities were a serious threat unless Catholic organizers permitted a gay veterans group in the parade. Police not only determined the gay threats were "credible" but warned that they would not guarantee the safety of the public, including children. It was also implied that organizers would be responsible if gay violence erupted. Faced with the threat of "large-scale" gay...
