    NEW YORK (RNS) In the latest clash between the Catholic hierarchy and one of the churchís leading anti-abortion crusaders, New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan accused the Rev. Frank Pavone of continuing to stonewall on financial reforms, and Dolan said he is cutting ties with his group, Priests for Life. In a Nov. 20 letter to other U.S. bishops, Dolan said he did not know if the Vatican would now step in to take action against the New York-based priest, who for years has angered various bishops by rejecting oversight of the organization by church authorities and for refusing to sort...

    The pro-life Catholic group Priests for Life is the first to announce it will openly defy the new pro-abortion mandate the HHS department put in force today under the Obamacare health care law. The new mandate compels religious employers to pay for and refer employees for birth control, abortion-causing drugs and contraception in violation of employersí religious beliefs. Father Frank Pavone told LifeNews his pro-life group doesnít qualify for the narrowly-drawn exemptions in the mandate, so his organization will not comply with it and will run the risk of fines and other possible punishment. ďThe unjust and unconstitutional HHS mandate,...

    As someone who has worked for Priests for Life, I have a perspective of the current situation that few people enjoy. Currently, there are reports of IRS problems with Priests for Life as well as debt problems with this non-profit organization. The current crisis has been brought to a climax by a recent letter issued by Bishop Zurek of Amarillo to all bishops of the USCCB asking them [and their flocks] not to contribute to Priests for Life. Additionally, Bishop Zurek has recalled Father Frank Pavone to only work inside the Diocese of Amarillo -- with no travel outside the...
