Watch “Episcopal Sodomy: Gay Seminarian Pipeline” on YouTube

I hope and pray this is not true or exaggerated. The truth needs to come out so we can confess, accept responsibility, discipline and begin healing the Church. Those of us who love the Church hate to hear about our family being abused but we want to do whatever we can to embrace the cross, restore trust and go back to participating with the will of God to be the true light in the darkness. What can I do to help the Church?

November Rally for the Catholic Purge

Wife & I just signed up.

It’s the least we can do. The Church needs to purge itself to stay holy. All victims of sexual abuse should be turning TO the Church for healing — not be in fear of the Church for predators & complacency.

CLEANSING THE CHURCH OF CLERICAL SACRILEGE by Dominic Legge, O.P. 8 . 16 . 18

(some quotes from article:)

It is time for clergy and laity to begin a movement for the purification of the Church. The shameful sexual sins and crimes of clergy—including cardinals, bishops, and priests—can no longer be tolerated. Tolerance is precisely what has allowed these problems to multiply for decades and persist up to today.

As Fr. Thomas Berg recently explained, the issue is sexually active priests and bishops. In the main, the persistent problem is with homosexually active priests.

Bishops and priests should be holy, they must pray for it, and with the help of grace, strive for it.

When priests habitually commit mortal sins, they lose their zeal for the gospel, they become numb to the truth of the Eucharist’s holiness, and they water down the doctrines of the faith. This leads to many other infidelities, and to a kind of pastoral despair.

(5 good points are detailed in the article)

Hand-wringing and pious platitudes won’t fix things. It is time to confront the real problem with courage and sobriety.

Watch “Scandal in the Church” on YouTube

A homily with great perspective on the latest revelation of the Church scandal regarding the bishops’ handling of sexual abuse.

NPR apology over Easter

This was written by an NPR reporter that claims to be Catholic. NPR apology even sites all his “Catholic” education.

This is why Catholic formation is the greatest needed in the Church today.

If you can’t explain all the errors in this description of the most fundamental core of Christianity, check yourself into a parish RCIA program.

Be sure its a real Catholic RCIA program that can explain the truth and not allow someone to receive Catholic sacraments until they can as well.

If Catholics can’t discover, affirm, live, defend and evangelize the fullness of truth, then who will?

Vatican praises The Simpsons

March 17, 2010 3 comments

I’m not a huge fan of The Simpsons, but I just watched a episode about Bart going to Catholic school called “The Father, the Son, and the Holy Guest Star.” [S16E21] In the classic Simpsons’ satire, Bart & Homer become Catholic while Protestant Marge tries to bring them back. WOW! A great episode to use with high school discussion groups. This episode touches on all kinds of questions about faith and religion (and there’s lots of paintball in it, too!).

I also found an article about the Vatican praising The Simpsons show.

Animated US television show, The Simpsons has gathered praise from the Roman Catholic Church for their “realistic” way of dealing with religion and spreading happiness among viewers. An article published in the Vatican’s newspaper, L’Osservatore Romano has lauded the long-running show, insisting “many today wouldn’t know how to laugh” if the series hadn’t been aired, reported Contactmusic.

The newspaper story thanked the show’s producers for depicting family patriarch Homer’s struggle with his own faith through its 20 years on the small screen. “Homer finds in God his last refuge, even though he sometimes gets His name sensationally wrong. But these are just minor mistakes, after all; the two know each other well,” the article said. The story also insisted that The Simpsons success is due to its “realistic and intelligent writing”.

The same newspaper had recently paid tribute to ‘Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince’, for highlighting the “sacrifice” needed for good to triumph over evil.

WOW! Who would think The Simpsons would be watched at the Vatican?  What next, Family Guy?
