    One of the most prominent Catholics in American public life recently engaged in a pathetic embarrassment that reveals much about himself and the values of all too many Catholics. That prominent figure is not Mel Gibson. Raymond Flynn, the former mayor of Boston and former United States ambassador to the Vatican, asked Pope Benedict XVI in writing to lead Catholics worldwide in the quest for a just peace in the Middle East. Flynn publicized the letter as part of a commentary he wrote for the August 6-13 edition of the National Catholic Register, a conservative weekly. Flynn’s request, in and...

         Raymond L. Flynn has had a long and distinguished career as both an athlete, elected official and appointed ambassador. Now he is engaged in what just might be the fight of his life.      Flynn grew up in South Boston, a heavily Irish-Catholic enclave that has been featured in such movies as Good Will Hunting. He is quintessential Boston Irish. A standout athlete as a young man, he has been called one of the greatest athletes to emerge from Boston, was an All-American basketball player at Providence College, and the last man cut by the Boston Celtics...

    Former Vatican Ambassador Raymond L. Flynn yesterday accused Democrats of ignoring a ``swing'' bloc of Catholic voters who could hand President Bush re-election next year.      As Democratic presidential candidates spent another day criticizing Howard Dean as ill-prepared for the White House, Flynn chastised them for ``ducking'' real issues such as abortion and gay marriage.      ``There is a forum for the black voters, there's another forum for the feminists and women voters, there's another candidate forum for organized labor,'' Flynn told the Herald. ``That doesn't happen with the most significant voting bloc in the country, the Catholic vote.''      Flynn, in an...

    With just two weeks until Massachusetts enacts same-sex marriage, two noted state citizens filed a motion yesterday to dismiss the November high court decision upon which the new law is based. The Supreme Judicial Court "effectively amended" the Massachusetts constitution, charge Ray Flynn, former U.S. ambassador to the Vatican and mayor of Boston from 1984 to 1993; and Thomas A. Shields, a Boston businessman. A Boston attorney, the Alliance Defense Fund, and the Law and Liberty Institute filed the motion on their behalf in the case of Goodridge vs. Department of Public Health. According to the motion, the Nov. 18,...

    I arrived at the Rally for Marriage at 2:30 while Don Feder was speaking missing the first speaker. The crowd was impressive, best guess would be about 3000- 3500, a good draw for a twenty degree day with a wind chill of below 0. Across Tremont Street a group of sodomites, lesbians, and other off brands, about 125 or so, were cluttering up the sidewalk waving the fag flag and signs complaining about discrimination and despoiling the constitution, yeah. I met JMT576 and his uncle and we desided to walk around, take some pictures for posting, and generally get a...

    No Catholic Pro-Life Judges Need Apply   by Raymond L. Flynn   When I was Mayor of Boston, Sean Hughes of West Roxbury, MA, my good friend from the Irish peace and justice movement, came into my office at Boston City Hall and presented me a sign to remind me of a not so enlightened time in Boston’s history. Not too many years ago, signs like the one he gave me appeared in downtown store windows reading, “Help Wanted, no Irish or Catholics need apply.”   In fact, Boston was a city that strongly backed the virulent anti-Catholic Know Nothing...
