Scranton Diocese Bans Micheal Voris for Being Too Catholic: Banned in Scranton

Editor: And some people are faulting Father Corapi for questioning Corpus Christi Diocese's treatment of him? Sounds rather like a certain other someone who was "Banned in Boston" a half-century ago.


Regarding Michael Voris

Posted on: 04-7-2011 Posted in: News
The Diocese of Scranton has determined that Mr. Voris will not be allowed to speak in a Diocesan or parish facility. After these engagements were scheduled, the Diocese became aware of concerns about this individual’s views regarding other religious groups. In videos posted on the Internet, Mr. Voris makes comments that certainly can be interpreted as being insensitive to people of other faiths. The Catholic Church teaches us to respect all people, regardless of their faith tradition.

Although the Diocese shares Mr. Voris’ support of efforts to protect human life, his extreme positions on other faiths are not appropriate and therefore the Diocese cannot host him.

But if you want non-Catholic schools and blasphemous plays, Scranton Diocese is more than happy to disrespect the Catholic Faith Tradition.
