Dramatic Front Page WashPost Story of Lesbian-Scarred-by-Priest Scandal Begins to Fall Apart
NewsBusters ^ | 3/7/2012 | Tim Graham

Posted on 03/07/2012 9:51:49 PM PST by Jahoohio

On February 29, The Washington Post created a scandal for the Catholic Archdiocese of Washington by dramatizing the denial of communion to lesbian activist Barbara Johnson at her mother’s funeral. Reporter Michelle Boorstein painted an emotional picture of a Catholic daughter being publicly shamed by a priest at her lowest moment.

But new details keep ruining the Post’s report. Thomas Peters at Catholic Vote today reveals that Johnson has publicly declared she is a Buddhist, and not a Catholic! The Post is going to need to fill the Corrections box.

More interesting fact.

1. Before the funeral mass, Barbara Johnson went into to the sacristy and introduced her lesbian “partner” to Father Marcel.

2. Father Marcel also did not publicly denounce Miss Johnson, instead he quietly whispered to her that he could not give her communion.

Sounds like a Fluke to me. She goes to work for an organization that she disagrees with in order to change it. A radical. The Roman Catholic Church has the right to decide who receives communion at their altar.

“Wonder if the WaPo will not print a retraction.”

And will the Washington Archdiocese rescind its apology to Ms. Johnson and its reprimand to the priest? As likely as the WaPo retraction, unfortunately.

Perfect comparison. Pitch perfect.

Now about the Bishop who immediately chastened and silenced the good priest.......

"How low will they go?"

They appear to be in lock step like a mob. As Ann Coulter describes them in Demonic:

"The mob will never support defending America, only those who seek to undermine it. The mob will never side with those who seek to protect human life, only those who seek to destroy it. The mob will never support the creation of wealthy, only those who seek to subvert it. And if you oppose the mob, it will come after you like a pack of ravenous hyenas."

In my opinion, The mob will destroy a nation and turn it into a bloody totalitarian dictatorship overnight. It was the French Revolution that killed 600,000 people in a country of 25 million people. It was Stalin's forced starvation of Ukrainians that killed 15 million. It is the manipulation of the mob that brought pictures like this below:

Even the SS had its share of fruits. Even though being gay was illegal in Nazi Germany, There was still a lot of queers in high posts.
IMHO being gay was accepted in Nazi Germany.IIRC, they stopped arresting queers and throwing them in camps before the war started.

Obama would rather eat his Catholics than lose the election. Where’s a big city Catholic going to go? They’re solidly on the plantation. Without the willing Catholic vote Democrats would lose en mass across the nation.

I would like to think those Catholics were only doing it because conspirators in the Church hierarchy convinced them that there was no conflict between Catholicism & Democrats; they’d be hard pressed to arrive at that conclusion now.

Probably just wishful thinking on my part; as a Catholic I’m surprised at how many Catholics think I’m twisted for saying voting for a pro-abortion candidate is being an accomplice to murder.

maybe it’s time to have protests at these MSM HQ’s and demand they stop telling only the B/S bias and instead just report the facts and do that reporting when they have the facts after an investigation.

The left gets their headlines and because the left are not too bright they think that headline is the truth instead of them actually doing some research.

That’s my hope as well. I know too many Democrat CINOs who attend multiple masses during the week. Don’t they understand the doctrine of their church?

If Catholics would simply return to their faith and practice it we could bury the Democratic Party.

No, it’s personal. The Publisher’s house would be a better venue for a demonstration.

It kills many birds for the libs. Keep in mind that Scalia, Alito, Roberts and Thomas are Catholics who appear to live what they believe. The court has 6 Catholics if you count flag-in-the-wind Kennedy and archliberal Sotomayor.

The MSM, like Obama, smells weakness and only wants to drive a wedge. They know, just like we do that the Christian religion (Catholic and Protestant) has become weak in many ways and a wedge causes us to fight each other instead of the enemy. When was the last time the Dems had a fight over abortion, the budget, healthcare, or gas prices. They haven’t because they stay together no matter what.

That is and has been the goal of the Marxists since Marx’s time.

He sought violent revolution.

The Bolshevik Revolution proved that you cannot control the masses at the end of a gun and expect high productivity, so the Fabians and the other Socialists that supported an evolutionary approach to the overthrow began the subtle revolution.

They took over academe, the press, entertainment, the theological seminaries, and political office and began to spread their socialism. But the hardcore communists were not done.

They switched their revolutionary attacks to a more subtle attack on our culture. It was primarily the communists who set out to break the spine of America by turning Americans against America.

They undermined America by rewriting our history and making us ashamed of our great past.

They undermined America with the “anti-establishment” movement, which was intended to separate the young from our traditions, focusing on abandoning individualism and self-reliance and switching them to a mob mentality that scoffed at religion, traditional Judeo-Christian morality and justice, and especially from self-restraint to self-indulgence.

What they have done is eroded the foundation of our fortress hoping that the fortress would collapse by itself.

At the same time they shout with screaming, red faces, “Democracy Now!” (which is mob rule), yet when the masses pass legislation that they disagree with, they support the single judge who throws out that legislation.

That is tyranny. Plain and simple.

They are winning.

We need to hang together as well. That’s why I plan on supporting the nominee against Obama even if it is Romney. Furthermore, we need to hold the house and work to capture the Senate.

Actually, it is said that she used the word “lover” when she introduced her partner to Father Marcel, in the sacristy before Mass. He explained to then, in private, that she should not present herself for Holy Communion. This is exactly what he should have done, completely in accordance to the way the Archdiocese explained that he should have.

I fear for the Church. By not standing up for Father Marcel the way they should have, they will confuse many, and many will be led astray.

If our hierarchy understood and practiced the doctrine of our Church we would bury the Dems; CINOs make me sick, but they weren’t created in a vacuum.
