    [Barf Alert] DC Archbishop: National unrest offers ‘the possibility of changing hearts’ Sorrow and hope — those are the emotions the head of the Catholic Church of D.C. used to describe how he feels during the current racial tumult.“These times fill my heart with deep sorrow at the suffering of people in light of the pandemic, in light of the economic repercussions, and also in light of the obviously cruel and unjust murder of innocent people,” Archbishop Wilton Gregory, the highest-ranking Black leader in the U.S. church, said.“But it also fills my heart with hope because, as we have seen,...

    Christian leaders who were quick to break social distancing guidelines to stand with Black Lives Matter protesters appear loathe to fight back against the ban on church services. American Christians saw something these past two weeks we’re not used to: People standing for their beliefs in the face of coronavirus.In cities and towns nationwide, millions crowded streets and parks, marching, singing and for some after dark, rioting. Many had been sheltered in place for nearly three months, carefully avoiding their neighbors, watching Netflix, wearing pajamas, and when outside, fleeing into busy streets for fear of unmasked joggers.But this — this...

    Wilton Gregory Is Revolting But he's not the only one. On Tuesday, when President Donald Trump went to the Pope John Paul II National Shrine, the religious hypocrites came falling out of the rafters. Chief among them was D.C. archbishop Wilton Gregory. Listen to the raging hypocrisy of a statement he felt compelled to issue in view of the president's visit: "I find it baffling and reprehensible that any Catholic facility would allow itself to be so egregiously misused and manipulated in a fashion that violates our religious principles, which call us to defend the rights of all people, even...

    Pastor of the Shrine of the Immaculate ConceptionATLANTA (ChurchMilitant.com) - The pastor of a pro-homosexual parish is flaunting his attendance at a drag show in August. Monsignor Henry Gracz, the pastor of the heavily pro-homosexual Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Atlanta, posted on his Facebook that he attended a drag performance at "Lips" on Aug. 1. The same month, Abp. Wilton Gregory appointed Gracz "spiritual director" to sex abuse victims despite the fact he is unapologetically pro-homosexual. In June 2017, Gracz allowed Sr. Jeannine Gramick and Francis DeBernardo from the dissident New Ways Ministry to speak at the Shrine...

    Are The Sodomites In Control? No help from Rome - The Vatican is the problem By Stephen Brady A "doctor" who obtained his degree and license to practice medicine by theft, blackmail and deception is not really a doctor despite the fact that he can legally practice medicine. A Catholic bishop is no different in my opinion. If he reached his position in life with lies, deception, blackmail, and/or sexual favors, he may legally be able to run the diocese but he is not a prince of the Church. We must expose the perverts who parade as bishops. The following...

    Bishop Gregory deplores Supreme Court decision on sodomy laws WASHINGTON (CNS) -- Because it reduces respect for human sexuality and the family, the Supreme Court's June 26 decision overturning state laws that made sodomy between consenting adults illegal "is to be deplored," said the president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. Bishop Wilton D. Gregory of Belleville, Ill., said in a statement dated June 27 that the Supreme Court in its Lawrence vs. Texas decision chose "to view homosexual behavior between consenting adults as a matter of privacy." "However, human sexuality cannot be viewed this way," he said. "Sexual...

    <p>Prelate Wilton Gregory is more identified with reform than anyone else at the top of America's Catholic hierarchy. The question is how - and if - this prudent insider will use his power to buck the system.</p> <p>This is the way the weather comes. The dust rises. The grass waves. The corn shivers, and the trees shake. The sky lowers and it almost seems suspended on the quivering treetops, and then the weather arrives, all at once: rain and thunder, and lightning striking down in jagged veins until you can smell the ozone burning like a great unbridled fire at the heart of the sky. This is the way the weather comes, swift and sudden, its momentum ceaseless and inexorable, hammering down on the barns and bean fields of southern Illinois, down on the city of Belleville, thrumming off the copper roof of the cathedral from every direction that the wind can bring it down.</p>
