Saint Thomas University PR Man Issues Fake Correction For His Modernist Pro-Abort University

Edit: unfortunately,  the letter doesn't acknowledge any wrongdoing.   Nor does it address any of St. Thomas University's historical hostility to Catholicism.   There are still two links that are "accidentally" listed on the site, from TFP Student Action.

Here's the letter we'd received which claims to have addressed the situation from their PR office...  It's a sad day that a Catholic institution employs a mouthpiece like this.

Maybe the problem isn't a minor error, but a systemic problem with the University?
Dear Eponymousflower website,

My name is Jim Winterer and I’m writing from the University Relations office at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul.

You had carried an article on your website that was critical of some links that appeared, in error, on St. Thomas’ website. We thought you’d be interested in seeing a response that our president, Julie Sullivan, is providing to those who are calling and writing with their concerns.

Her response is:

Thank you for contacting me regarding links to inappropriate internship resources that appeared on the University of St. Thomas website. The links were published in error on the website of our College of Arts and Sciences, and they are being corrected. Student internships in the college are approved through the Office of the Dean. The dean has not approved, nor would he approve, academic credit for internships at Planned Parenthood or abortion organizations.
Sincerely, Julie H. Sullivan, Ph.D., President

Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate Subjected to Gender Ideologists

Edit: and yet here's an article at Life-Site which cites an Austrian Bishop, Laun of Salzburg, who cites Pope Francis as being opposed to the gender ideology.

(Rome) The Prefect of the Congregation of Religious, Cardinal João Braz de Aviz, appointed last May 19 has assigned Dorothean Sister Fernanda Barbiero as the Apostolic Visitator for the Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate Conception (for visitation see Salus animarum suprema lex - Will he Smashing of the Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate Conception Begin Now Too? ). The male branch of this religious community has been under provisional administration since July 2013. "Commissioner" Fernanda Barbiero comes from the same cultural milieu as Marinella Perroni, who teaches New Testament at the Benedictine College, Saint Anselm in Rome. Barbiero and Perroni are members of Coordinamento Theologe Italiane (Italian Coordination Centre Theologians, CTI). Perroni is even one of the founders and has led it for years as president. Barbiero and Perroni are "convinced feminists," as an article in the Journal of pastoral issues "Vita Pastorale" states.

First pioneer of the "Christian Socialism," then the "Gender Theology"

Marinella Perroni, New Testament Scholar at Benedictine University of Saint Anselm in Rome, feminist, gender-theologian, and on the board of the abortion favorable Women's Initiative SNOQ
In the article Perroni referred approvingly the struggle of Christians "for  Christian Roots" only "as a rearguard action" and a "backward-looking strategy." Perroni is a staunch advocate of a "pluralistic world" and the "Conciliar Church". In the 70s  the theologian dreamt of  a new catechetical "faith-literacy course", which was developed as a literacy model in Brazil by Paulo Freire  and his "Pedagogy of the Oppressed".
Who was Paulo Freire? The educationalist Freire referred to himself as a "Christian Socialist", who took the ideas of Marxist "liberation theology" as his own and created a syncretic form of Christianity and Gramsci-Marxism. That was the model on which to Marinella Perroni thought the new catechesis should be based. Perroni was ecumenically stamped by Taizé, in the 80's she was a pioneer of gender theory. She promoted  gender as an "interpretive key for historical analysis." This brought her a tribute from the feminist online journal inGenere  as "one of the most important representatives of the gender-theology '."

Gender Theory "The Big Change" - Abortion as "Women's Rights"

Sister Fernanda Barbiero, "Commissioner" of the Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate Conception, with Perroni CTI Member
It's about the same gender theory that after the Fourth World Conference on Women in 1995 experienced a politico-ideological triumph in Beijing, at the UN conference, where Sister Barbiero was hailed as "the big change".  It is therefore no coincidence that Marinella Perroni showed little sympathy for Pope Benedict XVI.. .The German pope had, according to the theologian, been "guilty" of "intervening forcefully against the gender theory" and to have "called homosexuals as enemies of peace."  Perroni was part of the governing body of the  Women's Initiative   SNOQ begun in 2011 that arose as a left protest movement against the then Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, who was accused of "sexism". SNOQ defends the legal killing of unborn children as "women's rights".   It was no problem for the gender theologian Perroni.

Masonic provocation: Symbiosis of Church and Lodge in the Character of "Human Rights"

Freemasons gathered in 2009 in the church ruins of San Galgano in central Italy
A few days ago Perroni appeared in the  company of other great "prophets" of the Conciliar Church, with Alberto Melloni, the undisputed head of the "School of Bologna."  Both were speakers at a meeting of the Masonic Grand Orient of Italy (GOI) about the "Secret Council" (see the report of the secret council - Second Vatican and Freemasonry ). Grandmaster Stefano Bisi went so far as to describe the character of  the "encounter and dialogue," as a fusion of the Catholic Church and Freemasonry in the name of encouraging "human rights and freedoms".
Corrispondenza Romana writes: "It is the eternal temptation that always returns, this time in the form of an open provocation". Grandmaster Stefano Bisi said at the meeting: "I would be really  glad to know what Pope Francis thinks of Freemasonry" and he invoked the same, by no means a random date, for which the Grand Master of the Grand Orient would want a papal signal, the anniversary of  the 1870 breach in the Porta Pia which defeated the Roman city walls,  representing the end of the Papal States and is commemorated  by the Freemasons every year as a holiday. "The next September 20th is to be celebrated because of another breach, a breach that is being used to break down walls that separate the different worlds, who would like to meet. There is a great need for connections. That was also the message of the Second Vatican Council," said the Grand Master.

Grand Orient  Makes Pope Francis and Conciliar Church Its Palace

"You can not accuse the Grand Master not to have  spoken clearly," said Corrispondenza Romana . "The extreme clarity is in the message that's sent out with the meeting and published on the website of the Grand Orient."  It says of the Second Vatican Council: This leap "forward of the Church into the modern society appeals to  Freemasonry, today as then,  which is renewed  today, just as it did during those contentious years,  following with interest the changes that are emerging across the Tiber [in the Vatican]. "Vatican II" presented a unique time of dialogue without a doubt  and mutual understanding, which fall at this stage appears to have begun  a new Conciliar era, where everybody has opportunities to link back to it." Grandmaster Bisi and the Grand Orient are pulling out all the stops to make Pope Francis and the "Church of Vatican II" its palace.

Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate Delivered to Gender Theologian?

Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate Conception
Deprived of Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate Conception of the Old Rite and the Order line: religious congregation leads to a bull in a china shop.
Given these facts, there is the question of what exactly Marinella Perroni was referring when she recently said in an interview that "big news is possible today, but it needs a serious director" in the Church? The fact is that the cultural humus on which Perroni and the new "Commissioner" of the Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate thrive, "is a whole different story,has completely different roots, very different charisms and very different objectives,"  than the traditional  Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate Conception, who have already been robbed of the Old Mass and which  some  now want to inflict a "realignment" upon them in the sense of re-education. The gender theologians have a markedly ideological flip side, the face which presents a  reality as different as the Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate Conceptioncan can only produce misunderstanding and suffering. The Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate Conception with its ​​missionary and  contemplative branch are bound by the traditional Rite,  Catholic tradition, and not  least also the inalienable right to life of unborn children.
The responsibility for this lies with the Congregation of Religious that is handing on "pastoral custody" with the subtlety of an elephant in a china shop on its behalf and  is definitely positioned on a particular side.

Abortion Fanatics Attack Midnight Mass in Spain

(Madrid) Leftist abortionists and feminists disrupted a Midnight Mass in Spain on Christmas night to demand "full and free abortion". The incident took place in the parish church of San Felix in Sabadell near Barcelona.
The abortion fanatics wanted to act as Herodians and chose therefore targeted the Creche, in which the birth of Jesus is celebrated. As the antithesis of the happy birth of a child, and specifically of the Redeemer, they demanded "full and free abortion". They interrupted the Sacred Liturgy with a banner and chant. The church vandals and anti-Catholic "action" was videotaped and posted on the Internet. The sacrilege was conducted by  the "Anti-Sexist collective of Sabadell."  The video was published  on the website "Justa Revolta". About 50 pro-abortion invaded the church during the Mass, shouting slogans for abortion and against the Church. The "action" was described by the attackers as a "reaction" to the "capitalist, patriarchal and Catholic offensive."
The Mass was interrupted by the  disruption for fifteen minutes. Even before the arrival of the police the Mass attendees urged the vandals with their placards out of the church. Outside the church, abortion advocates continued with their chants.

Sinn Féin Really is Pro-Abortion

Edit: taking notes from Nancy Pelosi, Irish Pro-Death Party Member, Mary Lou McDonald addresses Ireland's Bishops with what seems to be even greater hauteur than the average CINO politician in the United States.

[Irish Central] Sinn Féin deputy leader Mary Lou McDonald, speaking in Cork on Friday, said the hierarchy of any religion is entitled to its views on the matter of abortion. “But I think people also need to understand, and the Catholic hierarchy need to understand, that the Dáil and the elected institutions of this State are there to serve all of the people,” she said, according to the Irish Examiner. “It would be wholly inappropriate for public policy to be bound or directed by any particular religious ethos or belief. You can’t have that in a republic.

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.

Three Jesuit Presidents Support Pro-Abort Politicians

Editor: It's not that we're surprised, we're just surprised that people still send their children, almost criminally in our opinion, to these schools. Parents want to send their children to receive the best education, but it's hard to believe that they want their children to learn and hold the Catholic Faith when they so credulously entrust their children to men who've time and again proved their dishonesty, duplicity, and frankly, wickedness.

[From AQ] Three laymen recently named presidents of Jesuit universities have contributed to candidates who favor legalized abortion, according to federal election records.

David W. Burcham, the new president of Loyola Marymount University, donated $500 to the presidential campaign of John Edwards in 2003 and $250 to the campaign of Rep. Maxine Waters in 2009.

John Hurley, the new president of Canisius College, has donated $4,500 to the campaign of Rep. Brian Higgins since 2004.

Thayne McCulloh, the new president of Gonzaga University, donated $1,500 to Obama for America and the Obama Victory Fund in 2008.
