    A member of the LGBTQ+ advocacy group Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence who has previously participated in Drag Queen Story Hour was arrested after witnesses alleged he masturbated in public for an hour. Clinton Monroe Ellis-Gilmore, 53, is a member of the group, which created a stir after it was disinvited - and then re-invited - to the Los Angeles Dodgers' Pride Night over protests from conservatives and Catholics. Ellis-Gilmore was arrested at Table Bluff County Park in Loleta, California, on August 12 after police had received reports of a man 'exposing himself in the driver's seat of a parked vehicle.'...
  • Religious persecution in a first-world country: When devout Catholics are labeled "potential domestic terrorists."

    In February, an FBI whistleblower from their Richmond, Virginia field office leaked a report about spying on "radical-traditionalist Catholics," labeling them as "potential domestic terrorists." FBI director Christopher Wray claimed the report was "a single product by a single field office." Hearings conducted by chairman of the House Judiciary Committee Rep. Jim Jordan revealed evidence that Wray had perjured himself, as FBI field offices in Los Angeles and Portland and perhaps others were also monitoring Catholics. Perhaps this is why the FBI is too busy to investigate the Richmond riots orchestrated by Antifa in 2020 or those BLM-led riots and...

    When I first moved to Massachusetts in 1969 from Protestant-dominated Minnesota, I was struck by the awesome power the Catholic church wielded there. Reverent media attention was afforded the Cardinal, the legendary Richard Cardinal Cushing, who died in 1970 and was replaced by Humberto Cardinal Medeiros. The funeral and selection of a replacement was a major media event in the Boston area. I had never seen the like of it in the Great Plains. There was more than a tinge of class resentment against the formerly dominant Yankees, who were Protestants. Things have changed in 2023, and it appears that...

    It’s not ‘white supremacy’ among Catholics the FBI is really worried about, it’s traditional Catholic morality.It turns out the FBI memo targeting Catholics as potential domestic terrorists wasn’t limited to “a single field office,” as FBI Director Christopher Wray claimed under oath last month to Congress. In addition to the Richmond, Virginia, field office, the agency’s Los Angeles and Portland offices were also involved.The memo, which was leaked earlier this year, singled out what it called “Radical-Traditionalist Catholics” who attend parishes that offer the Latin Mass, which the FBI seems to think are hotbeds of “Racially or Ethnically Motivated Violent...

    Multiple FBI field offices were involved in the drafting of a memo targeting Catholics as potential domestic terrorists, a newly unredacted document obtained by House Republicans reveals. The discovery contradicts testimony from FBI Director Christopher Wray, who previously claimed under oath only one field office was involved.“This new information suggests that the FBI’s use of its law enforcement capabilities to intrude on American’s First Amendment rights is more widespread than initially suspected,” House Republicans wrote in a letter sent to Wray on Wednesday.Earlier this year, a leaked FBI memo dated Jan. 23 revealed the agency’s Richmond, Virginia, field office was...

    ROME — Pope Francis stunned the faithful this weekend when he welcomed some 200 avant-garde artists in the Sistine Chapel, including photographer Andres Serrano, creator of the controversial “Piss Christ” work showing a crucifix submerged in a glass of urine. The pontiff received the artists to mark the 50th anniversary of the Vatican’s collection of contemporary art, telling them that like the biblical prophets, “you confront things that at times are uncomfortable; you criticize today’s false myths and new idols, its empty talk, the ploys of consumerism, the schemes of power.” “You can see things both in depth and from...

    A second incident of young people spontaneously rising up against “Pride Month” celebrations in their school occurred on June 8 in Toronto, Canada. The drama started at the end of May, when the York Catholic District School Board (YCDSB ) voted against a proposal to fly the hideous “Progressive Pride” flag at its headquarters in June. This led to a supposedly student-organized walkout and demonstration across the district’s schools. But for the second time this “Pride,” students opposed to having sexualized Leftist dogma forced into their school stood up to it. LGBTQetc. activists had been trying to break into the...

    Opposition is in full swing to the Los Angeles Dodgers’ on-field ceremony honoring the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, an organization of “drag nuns” that the Catholic League calls an anti-Catholic hate group. Thousands of Catholics, other Christians, and even some people of the Jewish faith gathered in a parking lot near the Dodgers’ stadium on Friday afternoon to pray ahead of the game. Later, the religious groups marched to Dodger Stadium, shutting down one entryway on Vin Scully Avenue.Weeks of momentous opposition led to the drag nuns being announced on-field to a mostly empty stadium, while receiving some boos from...

    Dear Senator … I strongly urge you and your State Senate colleagues to vociferously condemn and refuse to participate in the California Senate’s plan to “honor” the bigoted anti-Catholic minstrel performers known as the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. These so called performers hearken back to the dark days of the Jim Crow Era minstrel shows that routinely demeaned and caricatured Black Americans, all in the name of performance art. If anything, a strong case could be made that the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence is a de facto hate group, and should be reported to Governor Gavin Newsom’s recently launched website...

    The Los Angeles Dodgers told many in their fan base to go to hell by inviting, disinviting, and then comically re-inviting the hyper-sexualized, Catholic-mocking LGBTQIA+ activist group “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence” to come onto the field for Pride Night in June to accept a “community hero” award.Their heroic acts include putting on “Hunky Jesus” revues and showcasing men dressed as Catholic nuns simulating gay sex in obvious (and obscene) attempts to mock the Church. Catholic League president Bill Donohue describes their antics:[The group is] “known for simulating sodomy while dressed as nuns. They like to feature a ‘Condom Savior Mass,’...

    At a recent Senate Armed Services Committee hearing, Department of Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm defended the goal of having all army vehicles be electric-powered, saying "as the President has said on numerous occasions, climate change is a bigger threat to the planet than nuclear war. Converting our armed forces to an all-electric vehicle fleet perfectly prioritizes this bigger threat." "Some have pointed out that the majority of rare materials needed for electric-vehicle batteries come from China," Granholm observed. "The implication is that this would put our military readiness at the mercy of a potentially hostile China. What these critics overlook...

    ROME (AP) — A Canadian lawyer who found his vocation caring for AIDS patients in Harlem was elected the grand master of the Knights of Malta on Wednesday, the first non-European and first non-aristocratic head of the ancient lay Catholic order that provides humanitarian aid around the world. John Dunlap, 66, was elected by an absolute majority of 99 voting members of a Knights body known as “the council complete of state.” He immediately informed Pope Francis of his election and was sworn in during a pomp-filled ceremony and procession Wednesday at the Knights’ magnificent villa on Rome’s Aventine hill....

    Canada, not unlike much of the United States, was a very different place just a short time ago. Most Canadians used to believe in basic civil liberties. They could watch hockey games without being lectured about radical gender theory by teams donning pride-themed jerseys. Denouncing people for the color of their skin was seen as vicious, not virtuous.But perhaps the most troubling of all changes to occur in recent years is the country’s open and growing hostility toward Christianity and, in particular, the Catholic faith. According to new data released by the federal government, police-reported hate crimes targeting Catholics increased...

    Catholic Vote and Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the Department of Justice and FBI on Thursday after the federal agencies failed to turned over records related to the bureau’s targeting of Catholics. FOIA requests require agencies to respond within 20 business days or in some “unusual circumstances,” 30 business days. But more than a month has gone by and neither the FBI or DOJ have turned over the records or said they plan to do so.

    The Easter Expulsion at Walter Reed HospitalThe Biden administration turned Holy Week into Hell Week for Catholic servicemembers at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center by evicting Catholic priests from their facility.“It is a mistake, even heresy,” warned St. Francis de Sales, to “banish the devout life from the company of soldiers.” But the Biden administration did just that and turned Holy Week into Hell Week for Catholic servicemembers at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. The issue, as announced by the Archdiocese for Military Services, is by now well-known. As Holy Week began, Franciscan priests from Holy Name College,...

    The FBI hatched a plan this year to cultivate sources inside Catholic churches to investigate religious extremism, House Republicans found. Rep. Jim Jordan (R., Ohio), the chairman of the House Select Subcommittee on Weaponization, said in a letter Monday that the FBI, using information from an undercover employee, sought to develop sources—including clergy members and church leaders—inside Catholic churches in Virginia. According to Jordan, the FBI's plan called for the bureau to engage in outreach to "mainline Catholic parishes" to make congregations aware of "the warning signs of radicalization" and to "enlist their assistance to serve as suspicious activity tripwires."...
