    Siena College has dropped charges against a student who posted hundreds of flyers to raise awareness of the hostility conservatives face from professors. Zachary Butler, a junior studying political science, told Campus Reform last week that he posted roughly 600 flyers depicting an email exchange in which a Siena College professor called conservative students “miserable” to work with. As Campus Reform reported, Professor Jenn McErlean sent an email on March 20 announcing that she quit her school’s committee on civil discourse because the thought of working with conservative students was “making me miserable.” Though Butler was not involved in the...
  • Pope Francis does for church attendance what Colin Kaepernick did for NFL attendance

    The comparison is obvious. A new Gallup poll finds a precipitous drop in Catholic Church attendance coinciding with the years of Pope Francis's papacy. Francis is known for shoving secular statist left-wing ideology into church teachings, through both his words and his deeds, just as Colin Kaepernick did with the National Football League. That's clear in what Pope Francis says and in whom he invites into the Vatican to provide advice. And surprise, surprise, the result is the same: the fans and the flock stay away. Breitbart reports: Catholic church attendance in the United States fell by six percent between...

    Pope Francis is a Soros puppet. Soros has placed his boy from Harvard, Jeffrey Sachs, in the Vatican for the last several years as Pope Francis' handler. Notice that Francis pushes the exact same things that Soros' puppet US president Obama did: Global warming illegal aliens muslims ------------------------------------------------------- Jeffrey Sachs Encourages Catholic Organizations to Divest https://catholicclimatemovement.global/jeffrey-sachs-divestment/ Professor Jeffrey Sachs, Director of the Earth Institute at Columbia University and Special Advisor to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, expressed his strong support of the four Catholic organizations that announced their plans today to divest from fossil fuels on the occasion of the first...

    A number of prominent media outlets noticed how sharply Pope Francis veered from the positions of his predecessors by labeling immigration as important of an issue as abortion in his new exhortation Gaudete et Exsultate. And leftist clerics and Church observers, like Father James Martin, S.J., celebrated the exhortation for its jabs at pro-life, doctrine-supporting Catholics. “Caring for migrants and the poor is as holy a pursuit as opposing abortion, Pope Francis declared in a major document issued by the Vatican on Monday morning,” Jason Horowitz at the New York Times began. “Pushing back against conservative critics within the church...
  • Pedophilia By Any Other Name Is Still Homosexuality

    As scientists, we are concerned about recent discussions regarding clergy sexual abuse. Numerous authors, like a recent Chilean post by Riccardo Cascioli (February 8, 2018), seem to believe there is a significant difference between ‘pedophiles’ and homosexuals. Indeed, Riccardo Cascioli re-makes a point often made: “the so-called ‘pedophilia cases’ are actually an overwhelming majority of incidents of homosexuality”[1] where pedophilia properly refers to the attraction of adults for pre-pubescent children. When such attraction is directed towards teenagers, one must instead speak of ephebophilia which is initiated by homosexual persons. This is what we are talking about in Chile, but it...

    A Massachusetts bishop has called the notions of a New Testament scholar in his diocese “highly offensive and blasphemous,” and has called on his Jesuit college to ask him to publicly disavow his writings on the sexuality of Jesus. Professor Tat-siong Benny Liew, the chair of New Testament Studies at the College of the Holy Cross, has published articles claiming Jesus was a “drag king” and said the relationship between the Father and Son was homosexual and masochistic in nature. In one article, Liew said the centurion who approaches Jesus to heal his servant was actually speaking about his lover...

Writing for The Fenwick Review, Elinor Reilly of the Holy Cross class of 2018 argues in a March 26 article that Professor Tat-Siong Benny Liew’s “unconventional readings of Scripture” have brought “a new theological perspective to Holy Cross.”

    Catholic college students are threatening, harassing, and targeting a Resident Advisor (RA), including with a cartoon depicting him being anally raped, for posting a bulletin board affirming Catholic teaching on marriage. “I couldn’t even go brush my teeth for several nights without facing a mob in my hallway,” the RA, Michael Smalanskas, told LifeSiteNews. Providence College, where this is taking place, is run by the Dominican order’s Province of St. Joseph – well-known in most places for its orthodoxy. However, in response to repeated vandalism of the bulletin board and other student employees threateningly congregating outside the Catholic RA’s door...

    March 16, 2018 (Rorate Caeli) – It is always local situations that show how deep the problems in the Church are at the present time. The problematic issuances from Rome, Germany and Chicago are indeed disturbing, but to see how far things have gone, one must go to the local level of the Church: the diocese and the parish. Go to a typical parish Mass to see the fruit of the liturgical experiment of the post-Conciliar Church. The unmooring from the Tradition of the Church is plain to see in the carrying out of the deliberate misunderstanding of the Mass...

    The Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation Dr. Yousef bin Ahmed Al Othaimeen met with His Holiness Pope Francis at the Vatican today, Friday, 16 March 2018. During the meeting both sides emphasized the importance of interfaith dialogue and raising the voice of wisdom and tolerance to combat extremism and terrorism. The Secretary General emphasized to His Holiness that terrorism has no religion, and that OIC condemns all terrorist acts coming from any religion. Al Othaimeen presented his thanks to the Pope for his stand on the issue of Al Quds and the basic rights of the Muslims...
  • [Catholci Caucus] Vatican’s Fraudulent Doctoring of Letter from Benedict to Vigano Now Fully Exposed

    In the two days that have elapsed since my piece on this subject, the full extent of the Vatican’s doctoring of the letter from Benedict to Archbishop Vigano respecting the “theology of Pope Francis” has been revealed under growing public pressure for full disclosure.As has so often been the case, the sleuthing of Sandro Magister has led to a breakthrough. In the hyperlinked column, Magister notes another suspicious circumstance surrounding the letter, beyond the blurring of the first two lines and concealment of almost the entire second page by a pile of the eleven booklets on “the theology of Pope...

    17-yr-old victim accuses bishop of engaging in cover-upSAGINAW, Mich. (ChurchMilitant.com) - A sex abuse victim is filing a federal lawsuit accusing the Saginaw diocese and Bp. Joseph Cistone of a cover-up. According to the complaint, Linden v. Saginaw, filed Monday in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, John Doe — the 17-year-old male victim — alleges that he was the victim not only of Fr. Robert DeLand (arrested for sexual assault) but also of Bp. Cistone and the Saginaw diocese, who knew about DeLand's criminal behavior but did little to address it. The complaint claims Fr....

    The Rt. Rev. Stephen Dami Mamza, the Catholic bishop of the Yola Diocese, stated: “It is on record that less than one week ago, no fewer than 20 innocent Christian farmers were killed in separate attacks in and around Tambo. Luru village in particular saw its worst days when herdsmen wielding sophisticated firearms stormed the area, killing 15 people. Within the period under review, not less than 10 churches were burnt down, and in some instances, worshippers were killed.” Mamza was apparently careful not to name the persecutors. After all, he doesn’t want to get called on the carpet by...

    The Swiss Bishops will send three young people to the Roman Pre-Synod taking place in March as a preparation for Pope Francis’ “Youth Synod”, 20min.ch reported. The controversial Pontifical Council for Culture explicitly asked for delegates who were “critical of the Church” and “atheistic”. One of them is Jonas Feldmann, 25, a non-practicing Catholic who opposes Catholic doctrine and is active in the pro-abortion, pro-gay, anti-family and pro-euthanasia Green party, an extremist leftwing party. He will tell Francis that he does not want to be a member of an institution that “discriminates homosexual love”. Another delegate is the journalist Sandro...

    One of the great hypocrisies of our time is the number of pro-abortion senators and congressmen who also claim to be Roman Catholic. Being pro-abortion and Roman Catholic is like being pro-LGBTQ rights and Muslim. Both sets are a contradiction of terms. Thankfully, the bishop of Senator Dick Durbin's (D-Ill.) diocese recognizes this contradiction of terms and is denying the senator communion until he repents of his grave sin. Senator Durbin's office has yet to comment on the matter, but his views on abortion are well known. Last year, Durbin insisted in a CNN interview that Democrats who are personally...

    In preparation to take away the Most Holy Eucharist in all the public Catholic churches in the world by way of a mandatory invalid ecumenical mass, there are many indications that for the first time ever, all deacons, priests, bishops and cardinals will have to take an OATH OF TOTAL FIDELITY TO BERGOGLIO, NOT TO CHRIST, as has always been done in the past during the Chrism Mass, on Wednesday (March 28, 2018) of Holy Week (or Thursday in some diocese). In all probability, this will be the beginning of the greatest schism in the history of the Catholic Church....

    BEIJING — A group of influential Catholics published an open letter Monday to express their shock and disappointment about a report that the Vatican could soon reach a deal with the Chinese government, warning that it could create a schism in the church in China. The Holy See has been in negotiations for several years with the Chinese Communist Party and is now believed to be close to an agreement over the appointment of bishops in China. That agreement, under which responsibility for the appointment of bishops would probably be shared between the Vatican and the government, could pave the...

    Pope Francis has selected a Portuguese “priest-poet” to preach at his 2018 Lenten retreat who is an open promoter of the “critical theology” of a Spanish nun who defends the legalization of abortion and government recognition of homosexual “marriage” and adoptions. Father José Tolentino Calaça de Mendonça, vice rector of the Catholic University of Lisbon, wrote the introduction to the Portuguese translation of “Feminist Theology in History,” by Teresa Forcades, whom the BBC calls “Europe’s most radical nun.” When the Portuguese translation of the book was published in 2013 with Tolentino de Mendonça’s introduction, Forcades had well-established herself as an...
