Requests to Flyer Cardinal Mahony's Love Fest

Catholics Urged to Leaflet Cdl. Mahony's Giant Pro-'Gay,' Pro-Radical-Feminist, Faith-Subverting Dissent-Fest   L.A.'s Cardinal Archbishop to Host Many Speakers Who Undermine Catholic Teachings on Key Issues

ANAHEIM, Calif., March 17, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- "This is an emergency -- we're calling all Catholics to come join us and leaflet Los Angeles Cardinal Roger Mahony's latest dissent-fest," says Kenneth M. Fisher, chairman of Concerned Roman Catholics of America, Inc. (CRCOA). "He'll make tens of thousands of Catholics hear Faith-subverters, dissenters who get people to defy the Church on abortion, homosexuality, contraception, New Age practices and ordination of women."

Fisher announced that on Saturday, March 19, 2011, from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., his group will leaflet Cardinal Mahony's annual Religious Education Congress, the world's largest training event for Catholic schoolteachers.

(The Congress will take place at the Anaheim Convention Center, March 17-20. The Saturday leafleting will be outside the Center's main exhibit hall.)

Fisher said, "Many of the presenters aren't objectionable, and Cardinal Mahony does have a few well-known 'token' orthodox Catholic speakers. But he's also bringing in speakers with long track records of dissent from Catholic doctrine."

French Judge Forbids Community to Display a Crèche: And the Son of Man Had Nowhere to Lay His Head

Freethinkers have complained-- Now there are fears that the example will make a school.

Paris ( in the Northern French community of Montiers the Town Council has been forbiden by a judge to display a Crèche.  The judge ruled for the plaintiff, who based his suit on the principle of the separation of Church and State against the display, as the regional paper "Courier Picard" reported this Tuesday.  Commentators fear that this example could be a school for others like it.

Claude Debay, retired teacher and former Mayor of the Community had already decided that the crib would not be displayed in the market area, rather more "hidden" -- namely between the Church and the War Memorial.  That didn't satisfy the freethinker though [See, don't make concessions to these people.]: The judge has agreed with him and decided, the neutrality of the town area, to remove the crib from it completely.

The current Mayor Xavier Deneufbourg strongly voiced his anger in "Courrier Picard", Debaye has also organized Easter Egg Hunts himself during his time in office.  So his action against the Crèche is completely inconceivable.
