    The Federalist ^ | 09/17/2018 | By Willis L. Krumholz and Robert Delahunty
    The rapidly unfolding crisis in the Roman Catholic Church is not a matter of concern to Catholics alone. Its true dimensions have yet to be measured, but we think it will prove to be a crisis on the scale of the Protestant Reformation, which began just over 500 years ago — an earthquake of 9.5 on the Richter scale. If so, resolution of the crisis will take decades to work through.Resolution and absolution will require serious effort, and most likely require deep, structural reforms. Even if we are mistaken, the Catholic crisis is of such a magnitude that Christians...

    A group of Catholics in Atlanta, Georgia, has launched a petition demanding that Archbishop Wilton Gregory “remove priests who promote the LGBT agenda from public ministry,” and who continue what many priests and bishops say is a “homosexual culture” within the Church that is at the root of the lies and cover-up of the sexual abuse scandal. Concerned Catholics of Atlanta’s petition at change.org invites signers to also demand Gregory “stop supporting parishes who openly endorse LGBT lifestyles, activities and behaviors that are contrary to Church teaching, and to stop ‘looking the other way’ from evil in our Archdiocese.” In...

    American Thinker ^ | 08/27/2018 | Rick Moran
    More than 500,000 tickets for the papal Mass in Dublin's Phoenix Park on Sunday were handed out, but apparently, only about 130,000 people showed up. Irish Mirror: Over half a million tickets were snapped up for the event, but it is thought that just 130,000 people turned out. Well wishers waved flags, cheered and reached out to touch the pontiff as he passed on his way to a stage, where he then conducted the religious service for the faithful. During the mass, which was aired live on TV, the Pope asked for forgiveness for the clerical and institutional abuse...

    More Catholic priests and leaders are confirming the existence of an activist homosexual culture in seminaries and among the Church’s hierarchy – one, they say, that is at the root of the lies and cover-up of the sexual abuse scandal, recently addressed by a Pennsylvania grand jury. The priests are speaking out following the release of a grand jury report that details hundreds of examples of alleged sex abuse – mostly of male victims – and the ensuing cover-ups by Catholic bishops. The report itself is released in the wake of the removal from ministry of former archbishop of Washington,...

    Prosecutors say a hotline set up to get information on child sexual abuse by clergy within Pennsylvania’s Roman Catholic dioceses has received more than 400 calls over the past six days. A spokesman for the attorney general’s office said Monday agents are returning all calls and assessing the facts. Spokesman Joe Grace says the agents will have to consult with the office’s lawyers to determine whether any claims warrant investigation.

    MSN ^ | 8/14/18 | Richard Willingham
    Child sexual abuse revealed in confession would have to be reported to police and could be used as evidence if the Coalition wins Victoria's state election, the Opposition's most senior Catholic MP has announced. The Royal Commission into Institutional Response to Child Sexual Abuse last year recommended that states introduce laws to make it a criminal offence to fail to disclose abuse revealed in the confessional. The Andrews Government has not ruled it out, but said it wanted to first examine a uniform national approach. Nationals Leader Peter Walsh told the ABC a Coalition Victorian government would change the law...

    Organisers say they will not change the line-upOver 10,000 people have signed a petition to withdraw an invitation to Fr James Martin from the World Meeting Of Families. The petition, started by the Irish branch of Tradition, Family, Property, opposes Fr Martin’s attendance on the grounds that he “supports trangenderism for children,” and “favours homosexuals kissing during the mass.” Included with the petition is a letter, sent to Dublin Archbishop Diarmuid Martin, criticising Fr Martin’s support for the pro-LGBT New Ways Ministry organisation. In particular, the letter denounces Fr Martin for having “publicly accepted an award from this group, delivered...

    On July 13, 2013, following the acquittal of the neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, a year after he fatally shot an unarmed black teenager named Trayvon Martin, the Oakland, Calif.-based writer and activist Alicia Garza posted on Facebook: “Black people, I love you. I love us. We matter. Our lives matter.” Patrisse Cullors, another California writer and artist, shared the post and created the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter. At the same time they organized protests against the Zimmerman verdict, the two women, along with the New York-based community organizer Opal Tometi, quickly built up the Black Lives Matter network on social media....

    The Wanderer via LifeSite News ^ | July 27, 2018 | REY FLORES
    July 27, 2018 (The Wanderer) – For years, the late Paul Likoudis, editor of the orthodox Catholic newspaper, The Wanderer, chronicled the role of homosexuality in the crimes committed by clerics. Long before the Boston Globe published its “exposé” in early 2002, Paul reported on one instance after another of abuse and cover-up in chanceries nationwide. For his yeoman efforts, he was ridiculed, hectored, threatened, bullied, and, above all, studiously ignored whenever possible by one guilty bishop after another.  When the Globe’s series appeared in January 2002, the bishops could no longer persist in their obstinate denial. But they immediately insisted...

    July 17, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – A Catholic deacon who is openly homosexual has continued to write salacious reviews of obscene movies for a “gay” newspaper in San Francisco for at least a year since Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone was informed of his activities, LifeSite has learned. Over a year ago, in June 2017 the archdiocese told LifeSite that Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone, Archbishop of San Francisco, was concerned about Deacon Brian Bromberger’s writings, but later acknowledged that the archbishop had met with Deacon Brian Bromberger and had allowed him to continue writing for the publication while exercising “careful discretion” over subject matter,...

    Less than a day after President Trump announced Judge Brett Kavanaugh as his choice to fill the vacancy left by Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court, Todd Starnes spoke with Alan Dershowitz, Harvard Law Professor and author of The Case Against Impeaching Trump, about why Judge Amy Coney Barrett was not selected. "I don't think the President decided not to pick Barrett, I think he decided to not to pick her for this vacancy. I think he anticipates several vacancies. If Ruth Bader Ginsberg leaves, he might pick her then. The American people have to know one thing that...

    CZĘSTOCHOWA, Poland (ChurchMilitant.com) - Polish Catholics have turned back a gay march on one of the country's holiest sites, Jasna Góra Monastery. In a deliberate act of provocation, gay activists recently announced that on July 8 they would rally at the shrine — home to the image of Our Lady of Częstochowa, the "Black Madonna" — and "greet" the monks who live there. But a coalition of Catholic apostolates pushed back. Blasting the march as a sacrilege, they rallied Catholics to come together for a counter-demonstration and a Rosary of reparation for "public promotions of the sin of homosexuality."   Groups like the Youth Crusade, the Pro-Right to Life Foundation, the National-Radical Camp...

    The Montana Standard ^ | July 7, 2018 | David McCumber and Thomas Plank
    The attendance of four Roman Catholic priests from Montana at President Donald Trump's political rally in Great Falls Thursday has created a social media firestorm and apparently incurred the displeasure of the priests' superiors in the church. The four, who were seated near the front of the rally, wore their clerical garb, carried "Make America Great Again" signs, and wore VIP badges. They clapped for Trump as he doubled down on his oft-repeated slur of Sen. Elizabeth Warren as "Pocahontas," mocked the #MeToo movement, and questioned the meaning of former Republican President George H.W. Bush's "Thousand Points of Light" slogan....

    Can you imagine the left’s reaction if a Republican attacked a Dem judicial nominee for being too Muslim? The cries of religious bigotry, and the citation of the Constitution’s prohibition of religious tests for office, would reverberate through the liberal/MSM world. But on MNSBC this evening, Zerlina Maxwell, SiriusXM’s head of Progressive Programming, didn’t hesitate to attack possible SCOTUS pick Amy Coney Barrett for being “very Catholic” and having gone “to Notre Dame.”Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    “Today, Russia ranks among the worst violators of religious freedom and human rights,” Ambassador Callista Gingrich said during a roundtable discussion on Ukraine held at the US embassy in Rome. “There is no sign that its persecution of religious minorities and foreign missionaries is coming to an end.” “Russia routinely conducts sham trials to persecute Ukrainians,” she explained. “Religious freedom also remains heavily constricted in areas of Ukraine under Russian occupation and control." The ambassador is married to former House of Representatives Speaker, Newt Gingrich, an adviser and ally of the president, who has repeatedly stressed there is no evidence...

    The retirement of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy has conservative Christians excited about a huge opportunity to shift American laws on issues like religious freedom and abortion. President Donald Trump has noted he has a list of 25 names as possible Supreme Court candidates, but there's one name that pro-lifers seem to really love. CBN's Chief Political Correspondent David Brody says evangelical circles are buzzing about Amy Coney Barrett. "Many of my sources, evangelical in nature, love her. They believe that she is the one that if they had their dream pick that she would be the one," Brody said...

    Hillary Clinton's campaign communications director mocked conservative Catholics and evangelicals in leaked emails from 2011 released on Tuesday. The messages are part of a reported batch hacked from Clinton's campaign manager John Podesta, with thousands more to come. The Democrat's communications director Jennifer Palmieri and Center for American Progress (CAP) fellow John Halpin allegedly made the comments in an email chain titled "Conservative Catholics" released on WikiLeaks. "They can throw around 'Thomistic' thought and 'subsidiarity' and sound sophisticated because no one knows what the hell they're talking about," Halpin wrote to Palmieri and Podesta. The emails date from 2011 when...

    Toronto, Ohio, Jun 18, 2018 / 03:26 am (CNA).- Every single vocation story is different, but Sr. Rita Clare (Anne) Yoches is probably one of the more unusual. Sr. Rita Clare, who this month will profess final vows with the Franciscan Sisters T.O.R. of Penance of the Sorrowful Mother, was a four-time national champion professional football player prior to entering the convent. Yes, that’s American football. (She was a fullback.) Nowadays, the only football Yoches is playing is the annual two-hand touch game she organizes with the 38 T.O.R. sisters she lives with in Toronto, Ohio. Although she was raised...
