    Georgetown University has hired former FBI agent Peter Strzok as an adjunct professor. He is now listed on the university’s staff page. Apparently, Strzok is teaching a course on counterintelligence and national security. Strzok lacks a PhD. However, he knows something about counterintelligence. Strzok was an important member of a crew that used false intelligence in an attempt to undermine President Trump. And he succeeded in bringing down the president’s national security adviser, Michael Flynn. In a sick way, that’s impressive work.

    For Sunday mass the priest at St. Xavier Catholic Church in New York City lectured his flock on “white privilege” and dismantling “white supremacy.” During the prayer on Sunday at St. Xavier Catholic Church worshippers repeated the words of Father Kenneth Boller, who had adorned the alter with giant portraits of George Floyd, Breanna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery. This was a strange sermon at a Catholic Church?! Does New York Cardinal Dolan know about this? Catholic Priest: Do you affirm that white privilege is unfair…will you commit to helping transform our church culture and worship daily at altar of “racial...

    sday, the Jesuit periodical America sounded a dark note: “Are Nigeria’s Christians the target of a genocide? That is the conclusion of a number of religious freedom analysts and Nigerian clergy.” Yet the venerable Leftist Catholic magazine’s warning was veritably dripping with irony, for the same publication has for quite some time been vilifying and smearing people who did speak out against the persecution of Christians in Nigeria and elsewhere...America magazine is not actually being as inconsistent as it may seem at first glance. Even though America’s Kevin Clarke identifies Boko Haram as made up of “Islamic militants,” it is...

Cyrus Habib, who presided over the Senate for the last three years as part of his duties as the state’s No. 2 elected official, will not seek re-election, his office announced this morning. Habib said he will be joining the Jesuits. “This decisions follows two years of careful and prayerful discernment,” Habib said in a news release. “But since that process has been almost entirely private, I realize this will come as a major surprise to my constituents and supporters.” Habib, who has been blind since age 8 because of cancer, managed his duties as president...

    Fr. Donald McGuire served as Mother Teresa's spiritual directorSAN FRANCISCO (ChurchMilitant.com) - A priest with ties to Mother Teresa stands accused of sexually abusing underage boys for decades, one victim saying the abuse occurred more than 1,000 times. Robert J. Goldberg filed suit in state court in California on Monday, alleging the late Fr. Donald J. McGuire sexually abused him "more than 1,000 times, in multiple states and countries," according to court documents. McGuire, a Jesuit priest, died in 2017 during a 25-year federal prison sentence for molesting minors. According to the lawsuit, Goldberg was 11 when he first met...

    One day in May of 1970, an 11-year-old boy and his disabled sister were sitting on the curb outside a Chicago tavern, waiting for their mother to come out. When a priest with crinkly eyes and a ready smile happened by and offered the family a ride home, they could not have been happier. The boy, Robert J. Goldberg, now 61, would pay dearly for the favor, enduring what he describes as years of psychological control and sexual abuse he suffered while working as a child valet for the late Rev. Donald J. McGuire. He remained in the Jesuit's thrall...

    Pope Francis tells teens they’re not a ‘disciple of Jesus’ if they try to convert non-believers ROME, December 23, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — In an apparent repudiation of the Great Commission to baptize and teach all nations (Matthew 28:16-20), Pope Francis has recently told a group of high school students in Rome that speech should never be used in order to convince a non-believer of the truths of the Catholic Faith. Citing a fictional 11th century account of an episode of forced conversion, attributed to the eighth century emperor Charlemagne, Pope Francis implied that the belief that positive efforts should be made to...

    An international organization of Catholic exorcists said Thursday that the existence of Satan as a real and personal being is a truth of Christian doctrine. “The real existence of the devil, as a personal subject who thinks and acts and has made the choice of rebellion against God, is a truth of faith that has always been part of Christian doctrine,” the International Association of Exorcists said in an Aug. 22 press release. The organization’s release came in response to recent remarks on the devil from Jesuit superior general Fr. Arturo Sosa, SJ, which the organization called “grave and...

In a 2006 civil lawsuit, he was accused -- along with fellow Jesuit Fr. Andrew Eordogh - of having sexually abused a boy in Holy Cross, Alaska, beginning when the boy was four years old in 1967.

    Georgetown Preparatory School, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's high school, decried how it has been portrayed in recent media accounts about sexual misconduct allegations surrounding Kavanaugh. In a statement, the private school said its community was "being disparaged" and said the portrayals in the media were inaccurate, while also criticizing some media outlets for publishing stories without seeking comment from the school. "The image that has been presented on social media and in various news outlets depicts recklessness, illegal conduct, and lack of respect for persons. Worse, many blame these faults on institutional indifference," Georgetown Prep said in its statement....

    Here we have it: Brett Kavanaugh, product of a Jesuit education, academic overachiever, fine young man, Supreme Court nominee – and suddenly bad stuff to the Jesuits' main magazine based on a single unsubstantiated accusation from a leftist.  So that's why America magazine is now disavowing him.  Take a look at the pious overload: Evaluating the credibility of these competing accounts is a question about which people of good will can and do disagree.  The editors of this review have no special insight into who is telling the truth.  If Dr. Blasey's allegation is true, the assault and Judge Kavanaugh's denial of it mean...

    In a bracing October essay titled “Catholicism After 2018,” First Things editor Rusty Reno pinpoints an acceptance of a homosexual subculture in the Catholic clergy as the core issue underlying recent sex abuse scandals assailing the Catholic Church. *snip* Reno, who taught at a Jesuit University from 1990 until 2010, said that Jesuit novice masters during the 1970s “regarded homosexual relations as healthy, even necessary for proper priestly formation.” “Sometimes the novice masters insisted that they be the agents of this “formation,” he said.

    "America" - Jesuit magazine ^ | July 09, 2018 | The Editors
    President Trump’s nomination of D.C. circuit court Judge Brett Kavanaugh to fill the seat on the United States Supreme Court vacated by Justice Anthony Kennedy may furnish the fifth vote needed to overrule Roe v. Wade, the 1973 landmark ruling that legalized abortion in every jurisdiction of the United States. Judge Kavanaugh is a textualist who is suspicious of the kind of judicial innovation that led to the court’s ruling in Roe. That decision removed a matter of grave moral concern—about which there was and remains no public moral consensus—from the democratic process. Reversing Roe will not make abortion...

    A Jesuit scholar with expertise in Islam is explaining why Muslims are terroristic and is warning members of his faith not to be taken in by the “liberal-left ideology” that advocates “tolerance” and “concessions.” The verdict and warning comes from Egyptian Greek Melkite Jesuit Father Henri Boulad, who was interviewed by the National Catholic Register. First, the reason for the terrorism is simple, said Boulad, 85, whose relative, Father Samir Khalil Samir, also is a Jesuit scholar of Islam. The Quran orders Muslims to inflict “terror.” *snip* The church should not defend Islam “at all costs” and seek to “exonerate...

Timothy Kesicki, S.J., president of the Jesuit Conference of Canada and the United States, during a morning Liturgy of Remembrance, Contrition, and Hope. “We pray with you today because we have...
