San Antonio Priest Endorses Two Pro-Abort Candidates?

Edit: in the mayoral and state congressional race in San Antonio, Texas, Catholic incumbent Mayor Julian Castro and Representative Joaquin Castro are running on a pro-abort Obama-style platform. It's unlikely that these two brothers were chastised about their pro-abort positions.

Enter center stage is what looks and claims to be a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of San Antonio. So far, the sleepy Catholic electorate of the city hasn't paid much attention to an apparent endorsement being given to this man by Zeitgeist-Priest Father Jimmy Drennan. At this point, it also appears as though the local ordinary, Archbishop Gustavo Garcia-Siller tacitly approves of this endorsement.

We don't know if this Bishop is the kind who sues his faithful priests for teaching the Catholic Faith or whether he's one of the growing number of Bishops who are reigning in dissenters and scandalmongers. He certainly loves at least one Liturgical abuse and appears below in a +Mahonyesque setting with carafes. He did in fact receive theology training in Los Angeles in the early 70s, according to Whispers in the Loggia.
Here's the source for the photos and the prayer service where Father Drennan blesses this pro-abort Mayor's campaign.

Detroit Priest Campaigns For Pro-Abort Congressman on Radio

Edit: Some things never change.  Sometimes, Liberal prelates and priests have their hands slapped for their indefensible political mongering for the Left, but they usually return to their business after a brief wait.  That certainly has been true of Chicago's Father Pfleger.   It's no less true for Fr. Norman Thomas, a creature of the dissident homosexual Bishop Thomas Gumbleton.

What Father Thomas is doing now is appearing on the radio and endorsing the pro-abort, homosexual promoting, Democratic Congressman Hansen Clarke on a CBS affiliate WWJ 950AM.

Father Thomas has been long active on behalf of Democratic, and therefore Socialist, causes.  This was the case when, despite complaints from local Catholics, the Diocese refused to do something about it, and the former Vice President was permitted, despite the gross liturgical abuse involved, to speak "after" the homily for 15 minutes.  Here's an excerpt from the Detroit News, which chronicles the attempt of local laity to address the issue to no avail.
   To be sure, Sacred Heart is no typical parish, which makes this event particularly significant. Its pastor is Fr. Norman Thomas, a veteran of both politics and controversy. Fr. Thomas is one of four priest-advisers to the Catholic Caucus, the aggressively liberal lobbying group formed nine years ago by Auxiliary Bishop Thomas Gumbleton. 
   Yes, that was Fr. Thomas’ smiling face you saw repeatedly on TV last year in those paid political advertisements endorsing Geoffrey Fieger for governor. If you have a really long memory, you will recall that Fr. Norman Thomas almost a dozen years ago was repeatedly quoted in the local newspapers criticizing Cardinal Edmund Szoka for his closing of 26 parishes in Detroit. You could say he’s an independent sort of guy, accustomed to defying authority.
So it seemed obvious that Gore’s visit was going to be thoroughly political. And it was.
Yet, from start to finish in this unfortunate fiasco, Cardinal Maida, through his various spokesmen, defended Gore’s right to be at Sacred Heart. Complainers were told, correctly, that the church welcomes everyone to the altar of God. But some of those who called to complain were told emphatically that Gore was not going to speak in the church and that this was not a special mass, but a regular 10:30 Sunday morning mass.
Events showed that Gore was not a visitor but the central figure in the two-hour event. Gore arrived at least 30 minutes late, and Fr. Thomas held up the proceedings for his arrival. When Gore and his contingent of politicians arrived, Fr. Thomas met them at the back of the church. Gore and the pastor then proceeded side by side to the front of the church, where Gore sat in the front row. 
Gore spoke at the pulpit during mass after the homily for a good 15 to 20 minutes, which is a violation of liturgical law, which says only an ordained person may speak at the time of the homily. News clips of his talk were broadcast around the country, including photos of Gore on the pulpit and outside the church with several priests. 
   There was virtually no response to this sacrilege from the Catholic or pro-life community. I counted only 14 protesters, including me, who were forced to stand 500 feet away.
   What can someone like me say to my seven children who all know what abortion is?

Father Thomas belongs to a variety of odd groups which are no doubt, receiving that CCHD money to muddy the waters and further denude this Diocese of any catholicity.

Fr. Thomas was also the Chairperson of the Eastern Market Task Force, and is the Vice Chairperson of the Detroit Catholic Pastoral Alliance, and Chairperson of the Urban Parish Coalition, and a member of the Interfaith Committee for Workers Issues, Board Member of Wayne County Catholic Social Services, Board Member of Sacred Heart/St. Elizabeth and Chene Providence Community Development Corporations, Chairperson of the Sweat-free World Campaign, and 2005 Urban League Distinguished Warrior Award.

Concerns about Voter Fraud in Crime Ridden Democratic Districts

[Minnesota, USA] Now's the time to complain about voter fraud when immigrants and others not legally able to vote are liable to exercise that "sacred" duty without the benefit of citizenship. Unfortunately, the mainstream media isn't very concerned about that.

Mark Dayton is awaiting the results of the governors race in downtown Minneapolis at the Hilton. There have been reports of irregularities at the polls and accusations of "overzealous" citizens at the polls trying to stop it. Considering that it's widely reported in the past that the Democrats employ ballot stuffing, it's not surprised that there are citizens who are more than concerned about what's going on.

The NPR report on the radio claimed that voting was going smoothly with some complaints about voter fraud, but they did say that in the high-crime Cedar Riverside Neighborhood, the polling station claims they need "translators". Considering that basic English is required to pass a citizenship examination, it seems strange to expect that a citizen would not know English unless they were naturalized. Despite the inaccuracies about the voting running smoothly, it was laughable in that it featured a woman struggling to vote for Governor. The Election Judge was trying her best to explain that she couldn't vote for two candidates for Governor.

In any case, it's hard to imagine how you could make an informed decision about politics unless you knew the language proficiently. In any event, this is Minnesota. Just to remind, there's a $500 for information leading to the capture of someone committing voter fraud. Seems like there's a high likelihood of finding such people at the polling station at Ceder Riverside with its large Somali population. It goes to some length to explain why Jesuit Educated, Congressperson Keith Ellison was so concerned about campaign buttons with handcuffs on them featuring the Neighborhood Watch organization. Understandably many of his constituents in the inner-city are not sophisticated enough to understand the campaign, and he was even caught lying about it at a press conference, but that's another story.
