How about trying this one on for size? Here is the press release headline from Congressman Tim Huelskamps office this afternoon:
Obama Administration Denies Mass to Catholics
Apparently, a priest was denied access to a military chapel this weekend. Father Ray Leonard serves at Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay in Georgia but because of the government shutdown, he wasnt allowed to go to celebrate Mass this past weekend.
He is contracted by the Defense Department to meet the spiritual needs of Catholics, but not now. The chapel doors were locked and the sign said, Shutdown: No Catholic service till further notice.
Father Leonard said the following:
This is our church, Catholics have an expectation and obligation to attend Mass and we were told, No you cant go to church this week
My parishioners were upset. They were angry and dismayed. They couldnt believe that in America theyd be denied access to Mass by the government.
Time and time again this Administration demonstrates it is waging a war against the very religious freedoms upon which America was founded. This is exactly why we worked to pass legislation (House Concurrent Resolution 58) this past weekend to protect the religious liberties of all those who bravely serve in our Armed Forces.
Partly payback for calling for Pelosi to be denied communion?
The priest doesn’t need a church to say Mass and should have set up and said Mass in the parking lot. I’m waiting to hear whether any of the Catholic clergy really pushed back on this. I want someone arrested.
Did they take away all muslim prayer rugs too? or is that still allowed?
Is there mosques in the military?
But muzzies having “services” in their “houses of worship” is oky doky, right?
Wait a minute... I thought they said we have SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE.
Since WHEN does the government OWN religion and can lock the doors of a church???
If this doesn’t DEFINE Tyranny and the phrase “Anti-American”, I don’t know what does.
What did they expect from the Anti-Christ?
Wanna bet he voted for 0bama like so many Catholics who think that the government should take money from the productive and give it to the indolent.
Push back yes. But the priest can say mass only in consecrated space.
Communion he can give out but if its locked inside the building there’s not much he can do short of breaking in.
Further proof, if you need it, that Obama is NOT a Christian.
Actually he needed access to the Tabernacle to expose the Eucharist.
All these shutdowns effect masses of “whitey”. When will someone notice.
When Catholic priests stop saying Mass because the government said so, not only is it a problem for the government but also for this Catholic priest who simply wimped out. Hold Mass ANYWHERE just like it used to happen in Communist or Nazi countries.
“Chicken Shit, President.” That explains each and every one of these instances....Don’t tell me this guy was oblivious to what was going on at the IRS, NSA, Benghazi etc.
And then he should have broke in.
The military priests I knew had field cases with hosts in them and everything else they needed to say Mass
wrong about the consecrated space
