    In the most recent edition of that dreadful “Pope Video” series, wherein Jorge Bergoglio plays himself (a non-Catholic humanist), the star of the show (stage name, “Francis”) encourages the following:A lengthening of horizons, a widening, for so many people…Immense possibilities for encounter and solidarity…A place not of alienation … a concrete place, a place rich in humanity…Inclusiveness which respects others for their differences… Is it merely coincidental that the so-called “Pope Video” installment for June – or what gay activists call “Pride Month,” a worldwide 30 day public celebration of homo-debauchery – employs a host of LGBT buzzwords?Maybe. Then...

    The late Pope Saint John Paul II did not equivocate or placate over the implications of a sizable celebration of homosexuality conducted in Rome during the Catholic Church’s Jubilee Year of 2000 – saying it was an “offense” to Christian values and an insult that commanded acrimony. ''In the name of the church of Rome, I cannot not express bitterness for the affront to the Grand Jubilee of the year 2000 and for the offense to the Christian values of a city that is so dear to the hearts of Catholics across the world,'' he told pilgrims in a Sunday...

    NEW YORK, June 4, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) -- There’s no need for Catholics to shy way from gay pride month, according to Father James Martin, because the fundamental purpose of the events related to these celebrations is to allow LGBT people to be proud of who they are after years of persecution. Martin’s tweets, coming early on the morning of June 2, follow a tweet from Bishop Thomas Tobin of Providence, Rhode Island, the preceding afternoon of June 1 about how Catholics should be wary of pride month events. Bishop Tobin cautioned Catholics about pride month events – which are often...

    Vatican officials have denied protecting the founder of Sodalitium Christianae Vitae, a Peru-based religious movement, who is accused of sexual, physical and psychological abuse of minor and young adult members of the group.In a communique dated May 25 and released by the Peruvian bishops’ conference on June 1, the Vatican Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life said it was responding to claims that it had “hidden” Luis Fernando Figari in Rome and was “protecting him.”Meanwhile, the Archbishop of Guayaquil, Ecuador, announced that he is awaiting a final ruling from the Vatican Congregation for the Doctrine...

    Every clerical coverup needs an enforcer who staunchly defends the accused, threatens the victims, shuts down debate, and intimidates anyone dares to speaks out.Francis personally assumed the enforcer role in the Bishop Barros coverup.For the last 3 years, the world watched Francis, the papal bully, as he scolded, demeaned, stonewalled, deceived, and lashed out at anyone who criticized his appointment of Chilean Bishop Juan Barros. Yes, Francis, and only Francis, is responsible for serving up his specially-prepared dish of ‘hagan lio’, Make a Mess.What a mess he made of the Catholic Church in Chile!His negligent culpability in this coverup is...

    DUBLIN, Ireland, May 29, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – The Vatican’s upcoming international meeting for families is throwing the door wide open in a bid for “diversity” among volunteers for the event, specifically soliciting volunteers from varied “communities and backgrounds” to participate. Critics say the invitation is a gesture towards the LGBT movement. The World Meeting of Families (WMOF) brochure seeks volunteers using what critics say are terms signaling LGBT advocacy.  “We want volunteers from all walks of life from across the island of Ireland,” the WMOF volunteer brochure states. “We value and embrace diversity and seek volunteers from a range of...

    Editor’s note: The full text of Dr. Gerard van den Aardweg’s talk appears at the bottom of the article. ROME, May 28, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Europe’s foremost expert on homosexuality, pedophilia, and gays within the Catholic priesthood said that gay ideology actually “hates marriage” and sees Humanae Vitae as its archenemy. Dr. Gerard van den Aardweg recently told a distinguished group of pro-life leaders gathered in Rome from around the world that “Gay ideology proclaims that gay sexuality––including its inherent polygamy––is a natural instinct, that faithful non-contraceptive marriage is unnatural, and so is diametrically opposed to Humanae Vitae.”

    Jesuits don’t have to worry about ‘Catholic identity’ at public universitiesWith many Jesuit colleges and universities struggling to find enough Jesuits to fill roles, Fr. Jack Bentz, S.J.  wrote a counter-intuitive piece for America Magazine arguing that the Jesuit order, which is seeking a boost in vocations, should increasingly minister at public universities which typically have larger student bodies.One of the advantages to foregoing Catholic education, according to Fr. Bentz, is that campus ministers don’t have to worry about things like “Catholic identity.” In fact, Fr. Bentz says he has found “greater freedom to serve the students” at Boise State...

    IRELAND: a post-mortem examination - by Roberto de Mattei (Revisited) Almost exactly three years ago, in May 2015, following the "same-sex marriage" referendum in Ireland, Roberto de Mattei made his "post-mortem examination" of the formerly Catholic powerhouse. On this sad Saturday, as vote tallies confirm that an overwhelming majority of Irish voters chose to remove the 8th amendment of the Irish Constitution, we take a moment to revisit his piece. What did the 8th amendment say exactly? These words: The State acknowledges the right to life of the unborn and, with due regard to the equal right to life of...

    “It is the Argentine attitude: Suppress and ignore”—V.S. Naipaul'I was part of the problem,' Pope Francis was quoted telling the Chile abuse victims.Your Holiness,No. You weren’t part of the problem, you are the entire problem. You appointed and elevated a predator protector. For three years, you steadfastly protected him despite overwhelming evidence that he should be removed as Bishop and from priestly ministry.You suppressed and ignored a tsunami of requests, pleas and evidence about Bishop Juan Barros’ complicity and involvement with predator priest, Fr. Fernando Karadima. In 2011, Karadima was removed of his priestly duties and banished to a life...

    A Michigan cleric's ordination to the priesthood is being called off over a sex abuse allegation. Jerome Green Bishop Joseph Cistone of the Saginaw diocese sent an internal email Thursday announcing he is canceling the ordination of Deacon Jerome Green, pastoral administrator at St. Vincent de Paul parish. Green's faculties have been suspended, and he is being relieved of his duties at the parish. "Deacon Green has been relieved of his duties as Pastoral Administrator of St. Vincent DePaul Parish, Shepherd; and his faculties to minister as a deacon have been suspended while the matter is pursued," the letter reads. The letter refers to "some...

    Scores of LGBT activists, some of them Catholic, have praised Pope Francis for allegedly saying God “made” certain people to be homosexual. At the same time, however, a Catholic priest and director of a ministry to same-sex attracted persons, has posted a video rebuttal to the ‘God made you gay’ argument.  Over the weekend, Chilean church abuse victim Juan Carlos Cruz said that the pope told him in a recent meeting, “that you are gay does not matter. God made you like this [...] You have to be happy with who you are.” The Vatican has refused to confirm, deny, or...

    A few days ago Pope Francis told the bishops of the Catholic Church that they need to be prepared to resign when the right time comes for them. He even said that he hoped he would know when the Holy Spirit wants him to resign, a remark that was taken as a hint (not the first he has given) that he intends to do so at some point. As we waited for a manifestation of this resolve, on 18 May we were given a dramatic sign. The entire Catholic hierarchy of Chile (all thirty-one active bishops, with three retired ones...

    Just days ago, it was reported (link here) that, when meeting a victim of sexual abuse from Chile, the Pope told him something quite unexpected: “He told me, ‘Juan Carlos, that you are gay does not matter. God made you like this and loves you like this and I don’t care. The pope loves you like this. You have to be happy with who you are,’” Cruz told Spanish newspaper El País. Today, the Wall Street Journal expanded on this papal openness to the "happiness" of "gay" life. Based on the proposal by some German bishops, led by Cardinal Marx...

    In the 1990s, I attended a gay wedding ceremony at a Catholic Church in San Francisco – performed by a Catholic priest. Friends and acquaintances had similar marriage "blessings" in San Francisco. As of a few years ago, when I spoke with another priest involved in these ceremonies, this practice continued. When I left the Castro in 1999, I thought my experiences with facilitating and lecherous priests were endemic to a relatively small section of the world ranging from the Castro to USF. Ten years later, when I started writing about the topic, I heard stories from Catholics (primarily mothers...
