    ATLANTA, Ga., September 25, 2018, (LifeSiteNews) – Pro-LGBT Jesuit priest and Vatican advisor Fr. James Martin is suggesting that those who oppose his message of affirmation to homosexuals are not only going against the "Vatican," but they are not “orthodox.” In a tweet sent out on Monday, Martin criticized dozens of Catholics in Atlanta, Georgia for protesting Archbishop Wilton Gregory’s invitation to the pro-LGBT priest to speak at two local parishes next month. Martin trotted out three arguments as proofs of his orthodoxy, attempting to turn the tables on those who object to his efforts to normalize homosexuality within the...

    SAN FRANCISCO, September 24, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – The founder of U.S. Catholic publishing house Ignatius Press has called for Pope Francis to answer Archbishop Viganň’s allegations that he knowingly promoted an American cardinal accused of abusing seminarians and priests.  Father Joseph Fessio, SJ, told CNN that he finds the pontiff’s refusal to give an answer “deplorable”. In recent weeks, commentators have interpreted Pope Francis’ homilies about “the Great Accuser” and Christ’s “silence” as coded commentary on the Vatican whistleblower’s testimony and the pontiff’s own reluctance to answer it.  “He’s attacking Viganň and everyone who is asking for answers,” Fessio told...
  • [Catholic Caucus] Cardinal Cupich Must Go

    According to a man who thinks he's a so-called transgender woman, the archbishop of Chicago is listening to him instead of his faithful priest, Fr. Paul Kalchik, the pastor of Resurrection Parish.  The biological man, who goes by the name Alexandra Whitney, started a Twitter storm over the weekend claiming to have the cardinal's ear in having Fr. Kalchik ousted: "I called and spoke to Cardinal Blase Cupich, Archbishop of the Diocese of Chicago. I shared my concerns with Cardinal Cupich about Fr. Kalchik's attacks on LGBTQ Catholics and how this priest is harming the Body of Christ." Whitney added, "Cardinal Cupich shared...

    Last week, when I heard news that Father Paul Kalchik and some fellow parishioners from his Chicago parish had burned a rainbow flag he found in the church’s storage, I knew things weren’t going to go well for him in Cardinal Bernardin’s old archdiocese, now administered by Cardinal Cupich. The Chicago Tribune provides context: Kalchik said he twice was a victim of sexual abuse, the first time by a neighbor, when he was 11, and the second time by a Chicago-area priest when he was a teenager. The priest Kalchik names as the one who abused him died in the...

    WASHINGTON — 85 members of Congress have signed a joint letter urging the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to cancel its contract with a biomedical procurement company to purchase “fetal tissue” that will be used to create mice with a human immune system in order to test drug safety and efficacy. “Unborn children are not commodities to be bought and sold,” the letter reads. “The practice of conducting research using the body parts of children whose lives have been violently ended by abortion is abhorrent.” As previously reported, the FDA had posted a pre-solicitation notice in June outlining its intentions...

    Prominent Bergoglio Archbishop in Troubles Archbishop Mario Delpini of Milan, Italy, the biggest diocese of the world, is in troubles after Father Mauro Galli, 32, was condemned to six years and four month in prison. In December 2011, only month after his ordination, Galli abused the 15-year-old Alessandro, a teenager with learning difficulties. Galli’s parish-priest immediately informed Delpini who at the time was an auxiliary bishop and the episcopal vicar responsible for the area. As a consequence Galli was moved to another parish. Milan diocese justified this move with the argument that at the time nobody was speaking about [homosexual]...

    Evangelical College Azusa Pacific announced last week that it will be allowing LGBT relationships for students on campus following years of pressure. Zu Media, the student paper, reported last week that officials at the Christian university in California have decided to remove language from the student standard of conduct that previously prohibited such relationships on campus. APU has said that despite the change, set to take effect in the Fall 2018 semester, it still backs the "Biblical principles of human sexuality," in the belief that "sexual union is intended by God to take place only within the marriage covenant between...

    A Homosexual Party for Cardinal McCarrick The renowned journalist Marco Tosatti wrote on his blog (September 21) about a party thrown in honour Cardinal Theodore McCarrick somewhere in the Castelli Romani, a short distance south-east of Rome. According to Tosatti the party was organised by “homosexual circles.” It is unclear when the event took place. Because he was a liberal, McCarrick enjoyed for decades the protection of the oligarch media and of the Church establishment although his homosexual misconduct was no secret.

    NEW YORK (ChurchMilitant.com) - New York's Cdl. Timothy Dolan is reportedly trying to leave his post to become new head of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem. Well-placed sources inform Church Militant he possibly wants out of New York before the NY State Attorney General Barbara Underwood gets too deep into her sex abuse investigation of the archdiocese. Underwood announced Sept. 6 she had subpoenaed personnel files and records related to clerical abuse from all eight Catholic dioceses in New York. The information of Dolan's possible departure comes amid news that longtime vicar general Mustaciuolo is leaving...

    Learning to Name Sins Is to Have More Power Over Them Msgr. Charles Pope • September 23, 2018 • Over the years we have steadily been losing the vocabulary of sin. Saying “I have sinned” is often replaced by “I made a mistake,” or “I made a poor decision,” or “I’m sorry if my behavior was hurtful in some way.”Not only are we slow to say we have sinned, we are also ignorant of the subtleties of sin, in part because our vocabulary about sin is so limited. In this state we lose a certain advantage over sin because...

    More than on the Baltic countries that Francis has visited in recent days, the attention of the media has inexorably focused on what he will say at the end of the journey, on the plane back to Rome, when he will again be interviewed on the scandal of ex-cardinal Theodore McCarrick. Since the sensational allegations of former United States nuncio Carlo Maria Viganň, who has accused Francis of having covered up that scandal in spite of being aware of it, more than a month has gone by. Without Francis having given the slightest response to the accusations.Meanwhile, however, another storm...

    Who wants to be a bishop – after McCarrick? by Michael Davis posted Saturday, 22 Sep 2018 Cardinal Timothy Dolan (CNS) The Vatican is struggling to regain control of major American diocesesJust a few months ago – though it seems like years – Washington, DC was the most coveted see in America. Though not the largest or wealthiest diocese, its archbishop is often the most politically well-connected cleric in the United States.All that changed when its former archbishop, Theodore McCarrick, was revealed to be a serial sex abuser. Then, accusations of complicity began to pile up against his successor, Cardinal...

    Why is this accused gay predator still running the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception? The other day I received a call from a former Catholic University of America student who recounted episodes of sexual harassment that he suffered at the hands of Monsignor Walter Rossi, the Gay Mafioso whom pederast Cardinal Theodore McCarrick appointed to run the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in 2005. Rossi succeeded another accused gay harasser, (then monsignor, later bishop) Michael Bransfield who is currently under investigation for preying upon men. So in Rossi’s rise we see another case of gay...

    Revealing “The Great Accuser”: Pope Francis Fires Back at Crictics Despite Pledge of Silence Bree A. Dail September 22, 2018 Although the pope pledged that he would “not say a single word” about the accusation that he was involved in the coverup of Cardinal McCarrick’s sexual abuse, he seems unable to stop making oblique references to exactly that situation. There has been a pattern—a theme if you will—that has overtaken the papal homilies of the past few weeks since the allegations first sufraced. Indeed, since news broke of the 11-page testimony from Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganó on August 25th, the...
