    [Catholic Caucus] UK Investigation: Cdl. Nichols Hid Predators to Protect Church’s Reputation Independent Inquiry finds Birmingham archdiocese repeatedly failed to notify police of abuse LONDON (ChurchMilitant.com) - A quasi-governmental inquiry has accused the archdiocese of Birmingham in the United Kingdom and Cdl. Vincent Nichols, its former archbishop, of protecting pedophile priests and allowing child sex abuse to continue in order to preserve its reputation. Birmingham archdiocese, responsible for half a million Catholics, "repeatedly failed to alert the police when an allegation of child sex abuse was made," the report of the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) released on Thursday found....

    A group of 19 Catholic priests and academics have urged bishops to denounce Pope Francis as a heretic, in the latest ultra-conservative broadside against the pontiff over a range of topics from communion for the divorced to religious diversity. The most prominent of the group is Father Aidan Nichols, a 70-year-old British priest of the Dominican order who has written many books and is one of most recognized theologians in the English-speaking world. The others are less well known. “We take this measure as a last resort to respond to the accumulating harm caused by Pope Francis’s words and actions...

    Neo-Marxist Rudi Dutschke's "long march through the institutions of power" has reached the Roman Catholic College of Cardinals. Cardinal Joseph Tobin welcomes openly gay Catholics to Holy Mass in his cathedral. Cardinal Walter Kasper supports giving Holy Communion to couples living in adultery. Cardinal Reinhard Marx protests against the crucifix being displayed in government buildings and endorses blessings for same-sex couples. Cardinal Jozef de Kesel declares that gay sexual experience should be a possibility in the Church. Cardinal Blase Cupich promotes a "New Paradigm" for Catholic morality and argues that active gays can receive Holy Communion if their conscience permits. Cardinal Vincent Nichols is the latest recruit to the ranks of the men in red....

    The headline in Chicago Sun-Times said it all: “Archbishop not backing gay marriage—yet.” In a column published in May 2015, Neil Steinberg—who admitted at the outset that some readers thought he is obsessed with the issue of same-sex marriage—reported on an hour-long conversation with then-Archbishop (now Cardinal) Blase Cupich, and concluded: “To me, everything the archbishop said, except for his conclusions, is an argument for gay marriage.” But don’t take Steinberg’s word for it; he acknowledged his own bias. Read the column, and judge for yourself. Cardinal Cupich said that when the issue of same-sex marriage was on the ballot...

    A U.K. Cardinal appointed by Pope Francis has given his blessing for a pro-homosexual organization to once again work in his archdiocese after his predecessor banned it because of its overt promotion of homosexual behavior contrary to Catholic teaching.  In a communication a little over a week ago to priests in the Archdiocese of Westminster, Cardinal Vincent Nichols recommended that they make use of the organization Quest to minister to “those who live with a same-sex attraction and are often very anxious about their journey to God and their relationship with the Church.” The letter was leaked to LifeSiteNews.  “Quest,...

    Cardinal Vincent Nichols has expressed his support for Pope Francis in the wake of questions raised by four cardinals about parts of Amoris Laetitia. The president of the Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales made his remarks in an interview with The Irish Catholic newspaper while on a visit to Belfast last week. Asked if he shared any of the concerns that had been expressed by Cardinal Raymond Burke and three other cardinals, Cardinal Nichols said: “For me it is very simple. Pope Francis is the Pope. He is who God has given us and, therefore, we follow his lead.”...

    Vincent Cardinal Nichols, Archbishop of Westminster, has been elected as moderator of the one of the four English-speaking circuli minores (small groups) at the Ordinary Synod on the Family. The moderator has extensive influence on the direction of the discussion and thus on the content of the final report of the small group. Cardinal Nichols’s approach to human sexuality has caused the pro-life, pro-family movement grave concern for many years. Serious questions have been raised about his approach to issues as diverse as abortion, contraception, the rights and status of the embryo, sex education, homosexual unions and the reception of...

Westminster Cardinal Vincent Nichols says LGBT Catholics Westminster is hoping it will serve as an “opportunity for evangelization,” but also notes that they “arranged independently” to march in the event. The group’s leader, ex-priest Martin Prendergast, has been in a homosexual civil partnership with Julian Filochowski, the former head of Cafod, since 2006. Cafod is the official bishops’ conference charity for overseas development. Prendergast has claimed on film that...

It’s owned by an openly-Christian couple, the O’Connors, who decorate their shop with mementos of their faith in Christ. So how does a small business in a small town wind up making headlines around the world as the new avatar of Christian bigotry?

    [Update: On looking more closely at the list of priests, I’m astonished by some of the names I see there – clergy I wouldn’t have described as conservatives, let alone traditionalists. It reinforces my sense that vast numbers of priests, however much they admire Pope Francis, are worried about the direction of this pontificate – or, rather, its lack of direction.]

    Cardinal Vincent Nichols has said that the lives of Catholics who cohabitate outside of marriage are “marked by real goodness”. In a pastoral letter to the Diocese of Westminster reflecting on the family synod, Cardinal Nichols said: “A central principle for this pastoral care emerged clearly: that in trying to walk alongside people in difficult or exceptional situations, it is important to see clearly and with humility all the good aspects of their lives. That is what comes first. From this point, we learn to move together towards conversion and towards the goodness of life that God has for us...

    One man's quest to explain his brother's mysterious jail cell death 19 years ago has rekindled long-dormant questions about whether others were involved in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. What some consider a far-flung conspiracy theory will be at the forefront during a trial set to begin Monday in Salt Lake City. The Freedom of Information Act lawsuit was brought by Salt Lake City attorney Jesse Trentadue against the FBI. He says the agency won't release security camera videos that show a second person was with Timothy McVeigh when he parked a truck outside the Oklahoma City federal building and...

    You would not be saying TGIF in cable newsland if you were Alec Baldwin or Rachel Nichols last week. The actor’s 10 PM MSNBC show Up Late and the former ESPN reporter’s Unguarded on CNN both hit demo lows on November 8. With guests Cristina Tzintzun of the Workers Defense Fund and the Coalition for the Homeless’ Mary Brosnahan talking immigration reform and anti-poverty programs, Up Late With Alec Baldwin pulled in just 101,000 viewers among adults 25-54 on Friday. That’s a 41% drop from the 172,000 demo results of the one-hour show’s October 11 debut. While Baldwin’s total viewers...
