Saint Louis Diocese Backs its School Administration Firing Homosexual Teacher

Edit: This is an interesting contrast to what Cardinal Wuerl is doing in Washington D.C.. A Saint Louis School is firing its music teacher, since the administration became aware of his intention to "marry". You might as what Al Fisher is doing in the school in the first place, but at least they're getting rid of him. More should follow and once the canons are faced, more in positions of responsibility will be courageous enough to resist this perpetual media assault on the Church and Her institutions.

Some may point out that both Diocese are following protocol agreed upon by both parties, but actually, only one of the parties is concerned about defending Catholic moral teaching against its enemies and seems largely unmoved by media pressure.

Archbishop Carlson of St. Louis once threatened to close down Catholic social services when he was Bishop of Sioux Falls, South Dakota. He will not be moved by the distortions such as are frequently available at Huffington Post.

This school teacher signed a document agreeing he wouldn't publicly challenge the Church's teachings. He's done.

[] The Rev. Bill Kempf, St. Ann's pastor, said in an emailed statement that the parish was "recently informed by one of its teachers of his plan to unite in marriage with an individual of the same sex. With full respect of this individual's basic human dignity, this same-sex union opposes Roman Catholic teaching as it cannot realize the full potential a marital relationship is meant to express. As a violation of the Christian Witness Statement that all Catholic educators in the Archdiocese of St. Louis are obliged to uphold, we relieved this teacher of his duties."

The Christian Witness Statement, which educators sign when applying for Archdiocese work, says all who serve in Catholic education should, among other requirements, "not take a public position contrary to the Catholic Church" and "demonstrate a public life consistent with the teachings of the Catholic Church."

The Roman Catholic Church does not condemn homosexuals who remain "chaste," but it takes a strong stance against same-sex marriage and homosexual acts.

Liberal Irish Archbishop Continues His Quest for Church "Reform"

Edit: When he's not campaigning for  global warming hysteria, he's campaigning for moral panic, and the severing of the Irish Church from Rome.

He still doesn't have a Cardinal's hat, either.
After going to Wiki, there were all kinds of questionable statements from this man.   One of the more indicative points of view he suffers, is that he ignores that eighty percent of the cases of clerical abuse in the Catholic Church were homosexual in nature. The Archbishop basically covers his politically correct bases, from the delusional:

In 2005 Archbishop Martin, said that being gay should not prevent a man becoming a Catholic priest. "You don't write off a candidate for the priesthood simply because he is a gay man,
And the patently false:

But, he noted, "you cannot identify homosexuality with paedophilia". He said that paedophilia is "not the result of homosexuality, nor is it a result of celibacy"[2][Source

On Civil  Unions:

" He also said that while the Catholic Church favoured marriage, "it is not against other forms of intimacy" [Source]".

He is basically in the same boat as Cardinal Schönborn, "helping" with the priest shortage by promoting lay involvement, soft-peddling homosexuality if not pedaling for it.

But we warned two years ago that this Archbishop's crocodile tears were about another agenda.  Actually, we're pretty certain it has to do with an eventual Schism of the Irish Church, abetted by Enda Kenny and an assault on the Altar.

We won't deny that there's a cabal in the Vatican and other parts of the Church as he suggests, but it is more than obvious that Archbishop Kenny has more interest in forming a more independent, lay run, state sponsored establishment than he has in representing the truths of the Catholic Faith itself.  He'll continue to pretend to be the good guy, and the anti-Catholic press will continue to support him.

Sunday September 04 2011

The Archbishop of Dublin Dr Diarmuid Martin has admitted that "a cabal" protecting clerical sex abusers may be operating at the highest levels in the Catholic Church.
Dr Martin said: "There may be a cabal in Cloyne. They may have friends in other parts of the Irish Church. They may have friends in Irish society. There may be friends in the Vatican."
Asked yesterday who was preventing the protection of children, he said: "The numbers that are involved in this are few. The damage that these people cause is horrendous. It's for all of us to see where they are, but in the long term I have to take the responsibility that in Dublin there are not cabals who reject our child protection

Protestant Media Expert Criticizes Ecclesiastical Conformity to the Modern

Media Theoretician: Editorial journalism supports "radical anti-Clericalism"

Bonn ( Prof. Norbert Bolz (Berlin) has leveled sharp criticisms of an ecclesiastical "superconformity to the modern". This is the case especially for the Protestant Church. "That is the accomodation, which is merciless and knows no boundaries -- which kills the Church", said the Protestant to a colloquium about the Christian media presene in Germany on the 1st of May in Bonn. The Catholic Institute for Social Science in Walberg was invited.

As an example of ecclesiastical accomodation Bolz described the straining after "political correctness". As the Professor continued, there is in the place of the impenetrability of living conditions in the globalized world, an "ever greater necessity for absoluteness." There is an opportunity for Christianity in that. A problem therefore, that one can only get the complexity of the Christian belief through the media with great difficulty. In television programs or in newspapers, "in which dependent clauses are almost never used", it is difficult for the Church to be done justice by the media.

Christianity with its good news is "principally uninteresting" for the media, since they are interested in bad news. For that reason Christianity is said to have "nothing new to say". Bolz also criticized even a "pronounced editorial jounralism" in Germany, which supports a "radical anti-Clericalism" and prescribe for the Church how it should proceed in the modern world.

Two Protected Classes Go to War

We're rooting for the Jews in this struggle and we think they'll win, much to the simmering and infeffectual hatred of their homosexual opponents.

“Tolerance” Panel Causes Uproar at Orthodox Jewish University

By Thaddeus M. Baklinski

NEW YORK, January 12, 2010 ( - A Canadian homosexual student at New York’s Yeshiva University has caused an uproar and precipitated a fierce backlash from students and school administration after he organized a panel discussion defending "tolerance" of homosexuals within the school and the wider Orthodox Jewish community.

According to the Yeshiva University student newspaper, The Commentator, the event was organized by the YU Tolerance Club, which was founded last year by Avi Kopstick of Toronto.

The panel discussion, titled “Being Gay in the Modern Orthodox World,” attracted about 700 supporters, many of whom, The Commentator reported, were from other universities, including NYU, Columbia, Queens College, and the University of Pennsylvania.

"Goldblog" Tells it Like it is

Jewish blogger, Jeff Goldberg at "Goldblog" expresses frustration with the Simon Wiesenthal Center. Who can blame him? Simon Wiesenthal was a huge charlatan and a fraud. There are all kinds of Nazis in the Vienna phonebook, but Simon never went after them.

One wonders if all of the whining won't, as Jeff observes, undermine the cause of Jewish security rather than help in the long run?

We'd like to thank Jeff for his sanity and good will, finally, someone gets it. Jews have no more business harping about Vatican Canonizations than Catholics have lecturing Jewish leaders about how they run their internal affairs.

He writes:

Put me down as both unshocked and uninterested. I don't particularly care who the Catholic church elevates to sainthood, because I'm not Catholic. It's not my business who the Catholics decide to call saint. The Catholic Church today is respectful of Jews and Israel; it also adores its former Popes. I don't see a contradiction. I'm not sure why I'm so unmoved by these Jewish protests -- maybe because I think Jews should keep their powder dry for actual problems. Or maybe because excessive whining is just so damn annoying.

Wiesenthal Center "Shocked" by Vatican; Goldblog Unshocked

Wiesenthal Center "Shocked" by Vatican; Goldblog Unshocked: "From the AFP:The founder of the Simon Wiesenthal Center voiced dismay and disappointment Monday at weekend Vatican moves to raise controversial wartime pope Pius XII to sainthood.The Vatican sparked anger in Jewish communities worldwide with moves to nudge Pius --..."

Speaking of professional whiners... another Liberal blog attacks Bill Donahue who engages the media on behalf of the Catholic Church, not only winning scattered approval from elderly Catholics who send him money, enough to fund a $15 Million dollar a year non-profit, but allows him a broad platform to potentially discredit and undermine the thing he claims to be saving. In our opinion, he shouldn't be allowed to talk about rancorous sexual topics on television. He seems to us no more credible than Simon Wiesenthal or the 700 Club, but because he gets face time and fits a certain image, he'll continue speaking for the Church though he has no official position and receives hearty endorsements from Cardinal Mahony of Los Angeles.
