Inviting President Obama to speak at the Catholic Al Smith Dinner “amounts to scandal”
Has Cardinal Timothy Dolan actually invited President Obama to speak at the traditional Al Smith election year fundraising dinner for Catholic Charities in NY? Apparently.
There was some confusion with Life Site News claiming to have confirmed the invitation, while Cardinal Dolan’s spokesman would only say that nothing had been “finalized.”
But in a blog post on the archdiocesan website, Ed Mechmann an archdiocesan director, went to great lengths attempting to make a case for extending an invitation to our abortion zealot President, perpetrator of the HHS Contraception Mandate.
Father Frank Pavone, however, is making his feelings crystal clear on the utter inappropriateness of any such invitation. And no one who knows Father Frank will have to guess at the substance of the following statement.
Yet we might actually support the idea of allowing Mr Obama to address the dinner – on one condition.

Obama’s “pill mandate” has unleashed a powerful Catholic backlash
The Pill Mandate is blowing up in both of Barack Obama’s faces. The diversionary attempt to rally female voters to the president’s side just ain’t workin’.
And what moves the Pill Mandate into the really bad idea column is the energizing effect it has had on the hierarchy of the Catholic Church. Priests are generally constrained by their Bishops from speaking out on issues even remotely seen as political. But the mandate has clearly been the final straw.
Scores of priests are suddenly letting lose from pulpits, blogs and videos against not only on the injustice of the mandate, but also on the evils and dangers of abortion and contraception.
Here Father John Hollowell confronts Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards on the mandate and the destructive lies and disinformation PP perpetrates upon the young, the frightened and the ignorant.

Saint Maria Faustina suffered for “souls murdered in the womb”
Our Christian Conservative Spectator blog has temporarily moved off of politics to run a series of posts on “Turning America To The Divine Mercy” as offered to mankind by Jesus through the Diary Of Saint Maria Faustina.
Perhaps at no time in our history has America as a country been in such dire need of God’s Mercy, and the state sanctioned genocide of 52 million helpless boys and girls in their mother’s wombs is without doubt the greatest reason.
Cloaking the dismemberment, decapitation and poisoning of our children as a “freedom” may be Satan’s greatest achievement. A woman’s freedom or “right to choose”, we are told by feminists and the billion dollar abortion industry, is a “privacy issue” which impacts no one else. But someone always suffers for each abortion.
Jesus Himself made that clear to us when Saint Faustina began to experience nightly sufferings in “reparation to God for the souls murdered in the womb”.

This day John Paul II surely calls on pro-choice Catholics to come home on life
Today the Catholic Church celebrates the beatification of Pope John Paul II, the final step prior to Sainthood. On the day of John Paul II’s funeral in April 2005, Vatican Square teemed with signs reading “Santo Subito” – Sainthood Now. He was that kind of man.
Blessed John Paul II was the People’s Pope, by far the most widely traveled, popular, loved, and revered Pontiff in modern history.
The man’s inherent humanity renewed the church’s beleaguered image and his innate love of Jesus and the Blessed Virgin Mary, coupled with an incredible energy, revitalized the faith of millions of Catholics.
And all of these accomplishments, all of the love and faith that Blessed John Paul II inspired in people around the world, can be traced to the focus of his Papacy. The Gospel of Life.

A parish priest’s message for pro-choice Catholics
But messages from the Church hierarchy in America, the US Conference Of Catholic Bishops, have often been mixed. And the words and deeds of numerous members of the Catholic “establishment” have literally been scandalous in attempting to mislead America’s Catholics on their responsibilities in opposing abortion.
Since the 2008 election debacle, a few bishops have asked several notable pro-abortion Catholic legislators and government officials to refrain from presenting themselves at the communion rail. But the responsibility for guiding the Catholic faithful, and protecting their souls, on the issue of life cannot just be laid on the bishops. The guidance and admonitions must come from the parish pulpit, the parish priest.
One priest willing to lay it on the line for his congregation is Father Richard Perozich of Escondido, CA. Father Perozich recently wrote an article on the upcoming elections for his parish bulletin. For those of us wondering “where is the Catholic Church”, Father Perozich provides a clear message that we can hope all Catholics will take to heart.

Progressive Catholics must take responsibility for federal funding of abortion
Planned Parenthood recently honored abortion heroine Nancy Pelosi for her success in passing legislation that will dramatically expand abortion on demand in America, and provide federal funding of abortions, under the guise of “healthcare reform”.
Apparently inspired by the fact that in creating this incredible windfall for the abortion industry Speaker Pelosi lied to every citizen in America, from members of her own party to the bishops of her church, Planned Parenthood created a brand new award for “practicing Catholic” Pelosi, the Champion of Women’s Health Award. “She’s walked across hot coals for us” beamed PP President Cecile Richards.
But Planned Parenthood has done a great disservice in not also recognizing the duplicitous efforts of a group of dedicated progressive Catholics who were instrumental in bringing home that wonderful windfall – the Social Justice Sisters.
Last night, Abortion Incorporated rectified this ungrateful lack of recognition.

An open letter to Sister Carol Keehan
Sister Carol Keehan
Catholic Health Association
RE: The Cost Of Your Presidential Pen
Dear Sister Keehan
The fact that President Obama awarded you a Presidential Pen in recognition of your support for “healthcare reform”, would seem to indicate that your public contradiction of the US Conference Of Catholic Bishops on the abortion language in the bill played an important part in making Obamacare the law of our land.
The USCCB recently issued a statement pointing out that your open break with the bishops “lacked an understanding of these particular issues” and “resulted in confusion and a wound to Catholic unity”.
Now, as the evils nested in those thousands of pages of healthcare legislation are beginning to leak out, it may be an appropriate time for you, Sister Keehan, to reflect upon what your actions have wrought for the American people.

Progressive Catholic social workers are not nuns
A stunning 59,000 “nuns” who, in defiance of the US Conference Of Catholic Bishops, have come out in favor of the abortion promulgating senate healthcare bill.
Maddow, at her “perkiest” best, asks “Who would you pick in a fight? Congressman Bart Stupak or 59,000 nuns?” Dionne titled his Washington Post Op-Ed column today “On Health Care, Listen To The Nuns”.
Well there are nuns, designated as such by the Catholic Church. And there are vocational sisters. And then there are “progressive Catholic” vocational sisters.
Anyone care to guess which classification fits the Maddow and Dionne ideal of “nuns”?.

Catholic Bishops are starting to say that “something has to be done”
“I talked to the Catholic bishops about this… This bill that passed the Senate does not have federal funding of abortion”. Catholic Speaker Of The House Nancy Pelosi lying, again, about abortion.
Though lying directly to the US Conference Of Catholic Bishops may be taking it up a notch, misleading people over abortion is nothing new for Ms Speaker.
Actually, the only time that “practicing Catholic” Pelosi even mentions the Catholic Church, is when she is blatantly distorting the Church’s Catechism on abortion in order to mislead and corrupt others.
In doing so, Nancy Pelosi is committing the scandal. Per the Catechism Of The Catholic Church, “Scandal is an attitude or behavior that leads another to do evil”. And Catholic Bishops are starting to say that “something has to be done”.

Government circumvention of America’s escalating pro-life sentiment
Though it might not seem so considering events in Washington, 2009 was a better year for the pro-life community than it was for Abortion Incorporated, the radical hardcore abortion lobby.
President Barack Obama, backed to the hilt by a progressive democratic leadership in congress, did everything his newly acquired power permitted in making good on his campaign commitments to the abortion industry that spent heavily to place him in the White House.
Yet for the first time in those 36 years a majority of Americans consider themselves to be pro-life. America is rethinking abortion and the struggle for the rights of America’s unborn is being won in hearts and minds across the country. But Americans will not be allowed to “choose” life without a fight. Abortion Inc intends to confront that escalating pro-life sentiment with the full force of the federal government.« Previous Entries
