Dissident Jesuit Welcome in St. Paul Archdiocese

What, no Collar?
Edit: In addition to a chancellor at St. Mary's College in Winona pushing for women priests on anti-Catholic Fox News recently,  a pro-homosexual Jesuit named Father John Dear, was permitted to spread error at two Twin Cities parishes earlier this month.

Falling hard on the heals of a story about a Jesuit indicting homosexuality, here's a story of a Jesuit endorsing it.  We expect that there are more Jesuits endorsing homosexuality than preaching against it.  Here's  Father Dear who was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Desmond Tutu for his alleged efforts on behalf of "peace" and "justice".

After having some help doing a cursory search of Father Dear's internet presence, it was admittedly a little difficult to find out anything about what he's been up to.  "Peace and Justice" is usually a good cover for dissidents.  It gives them the appearances of doing valid pastoral work when they are in fact promoting a Marxist agenda,  but most people understand that those who promote homosexuality can't possibly be Catholic, can they?

We've been led to understand that the Arhdiocese of Minneapolis and St. Paul, despite harboring one of the most anti-Catholic Colleges in the Midwest, has been improving as of late.  

Both of the Parishes where Dear appeared,  Pax Christi and St. Frances Cabrini, are widely known for promoting teachings that are in direct contradiction to Catholic teaching.  Heaven forbid that they  offered a Latin Mass, because they might have been closed down by another homosexual enabler,  Father John Bauer,  whose Basilica has a presence at a homosexual event in Minneapolis every year.

A month ago, Father Dear wrote the following on his website,  showing a dissatisfaction with the course the Church is taking.  That can only be a good thing:

As I travel the nation these days and meet good people everywhere, over and again I hear how good people feel betrayed by church leaders whether in regard to issues of justice and peace, women and gays and lesbians, or local parish closings or administrative issues. So many feel betrayed. So many are hurt. So many are angry. So many are walking away.
Of course, his solution to the problem is to ordain women and homosexuals.  Hasn't that been tried and found wanting?

Given the dramatic shortage of priests that will hit the Church in the next two decades, change is inevitable. Sooner or later, whether in ten years or one hundred, the Church will ordain women, allow clergy to marry, permit local communities to elect bishops, welcome gays and lesbians and respect other religions. The tide of history cannot be stopped. The changes will help the Church become healthier, more faithful, and more loving.

Marxist Priest Faces Excommunication

[La Stampa] Father Roy Bourgeois is a senior cleric belonging to the Maryknoll Missionaries, founded in 1911 in the United States for missionary activities. He spent twenty years of his life in Latin America and returned with a conviction: to put an end to U.S. support of Latin American military torturers trained in Georgia at the "School of the Americas" military center. That was in the nineties. Now that there is democracy in Latin America, Father Roy is fighting to get the U.S. government to admit its past responsibility, release the lists of military personnel trained there, and close the center permanently.

Around his "School of the Americas Watch" (SOA-Watch), a humanitarian organization for human rights, a broad consensus has solidified, and the protest march which takes place every November in Fort Bennings, Georgia at the gates of the former military school sees hundreds of demonstrators from across the United States, including monks and nuns from many different congregations. Every now and then he speaks out on more than just humanitarian issues, and so his latest position in favor of women priests has earned him a formal complaint and the start of the process for expulsion from his missionary congregation and excommunication. Measures a bit drastic for a "crime of opinion" - as one would say if there was a court case - motivated by the wide popularity of the individual and the resonance of his statements.

On the figure of Father Bourgeois, in addition to the many articles that have been written, there are also a few books, of which I will indicate just one. The SOA-Watch center has its headquarters in Washington and certainly will survive the eventual ecclesiastical sanction against its founder.

Ottawa Politician Takes CINO McGuinty to Task: Canadian Bloggers are Making Interneet a NOGO Zone for CINOs

The Bishops of Canada are complaining about Bloggers in Canada too, like Lifesite and SOCON, for making their job of introducing anti-Catholic agendas and ideas contrary to Church teaching that much harder; hard enough that they complain about them by name.


Here's a bio of John Pacheco.

Reds at USCCB Continue to Promote "Disarmament"

In a tip of the cheese hat to /Antonio Gramsci, the gathered Catholic Bishops continue to undermine their homeland, their Church and the families they are sworn to protect.  Some people perhaps thought that there would be a major change, how wrong you were. Now Bishop Hubbard of the scandal ridden and heretical Albany Diocese is "peacemaking" in the Bernardinian style. How Bishop Hubbard has a job, much less how he's able to dictate to the United States how it should defend itself simply boggles the mind. So, not only is he running interference for homosexuals, posing as priests so they can prey on the young, but he's trying to prevent your homeland from defending itself from nuclear destruction.  Hey, do you really think it's a good idea to send money to your Archdiocese? 

Archbishop Dolan, Bishop Hubbard Voice Bishops’ Support for Ratification of Nuclear Arms Reduction Treaty
WASHINGTON (November 30, 2010)—The new president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) and the chairman of the U.S. bishops’ Committee on International Justice and Peace have urged the United States Senate to ratify the New START Treaty. The treaty, signed by President Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on April 8, would reduce the nuclear arsenals of both countries by 30 percent.

“The Church’s concern for nuclear weapons grows out of its commitment to the sanctity of human life,” wrote Bishop Howard J. Hubbard of Albany, New York, in a November 29 letter to the Senate. “Consistent with Catholic teaching, the Holy See and the U.S. bishops have long supported reducing the number of nuclear armaments, preventing their spread to other nations, and securing nuclear materials from terrorists. For decades they have promoted the twin and interrelated policy goals of nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation. We understand this is an ideal that will take years to reach, but it is a task which our nation must take up with renewed energy.”
