And all the bishops of the USA, with Cardinal Dolan leading the pack defend the protestors and they would respond, "we need to talk with these people and understand their point of view, and isn't wonderful that we like in a country were people can express their opinons".
Catholics have their rights under attack as the Jews did before us. Vote NO to Obama.
Censorship, here?I am deeply disappointed. Be ashamed!
Right, Admiral. There IS no censorship here.Censorship is prior restraint by the government.Please do not confuse issues. No purpose is served by the misuse of words.
@Jack: that was a message to JP Sonnen. He did not release my first comment that I wrote.
The founder of this blog has the right to censor. Admiral is correct however, there is a great deal of "shame" in censorship. Censorship is a sign of fear, arrogance and intolerance.
Anti-Catholic vitriol from revolutionaries is nothing new.
What was surprising to me is that the police pulled the Catholic priest when he was minding his own business saying the Rosary. The disturbance was created by the gay activist. Has government taken sides against the Church?What happened to individual rights?
Why did the priest walk with the activists before they surrounded him? Maybe he did that because they wouldn't let him go away. I would have prayed the Rosary where they could see me. But I wouldn't have mingled deliberately with them, and the priest probably didn't do that.
Now if by defeating Obama we could arrest the influence of the homosexual movement, that would be good. However so many corporations are supporting the homosexual movement, ford Gm, VW, Toyota and Home Depot and Coca Cola and Pepsi and so many other businesses are behind this movement, putting all the blame on Obama is not going to accomplish much. The problem is biogger than Obama or the Democrats. Ever hear of the Log Cabin Republicans?This is a secular democracy, and we can't let religious beliefs interfere with what we want to do.
The solution, clearly, is more dialogue.
It is related that Our Lord told Saint Catherine of Sienna, that the sin of Sodom is so perverse and repulsive that even the devil, who tempt the soul to its commission, leaves the room as it is an unbearable affront even to his, the devil's, fallen angelic nature. The acceptance of homosexuality has historically been the signal of a society that is about to implode, to violently destroy itself. I would expect within a very short time that this nation is going to undergo some apocalyptic events and millions are going to die.
I believe I have heard this very thing, but that there is a fairly "simple" explanation as well. The demons, as angels albeit fallen ones, cannot be present where an action contrary to nature is committed. This would include beastiality (sp?) as well. I can't think of others off the top of my head, but it is not the degree of sin that prevents their presence, it is the perverseness as a sin against nature. That said, any sin against nature would by it's own merits be extremely perverse.
God help heterosexuals when these gay bigots have more political power
JP Sonnenn will censor anything he does not agre with. Especially you present him with scripture or the writings of saints and theologians who prove him wrong.
Someone give Fr. Gerald O'Reilly a gold star and a big pat on the back! We need more such courageous priests willing to pray in the public square and witness to the truth!God bless him!
I have to agree with someone above that commented on why Fr. O'Reilly felt the need to join in the circle of protesters, as if he were with them. God bless him but seems to me that just praying off to the side of the group would've been better. But that's okay, this is the way he wanted to handle it. Further, I don't agree with the use of the words "attack priest". I've watched this video a few times now and I don't see Father being "attacked". Certainly that one woman was losing it and definitely in his face but to headline this piece the way it was is kind of sensationalism. He wasn't attacked.BTW, Fr. O'Reilly is a bold, holy, orthodox priest here in the Archdiocese of Chicago. He's always "out there" with the people and much loved.
Father is a sign of contradiction to a world gone mad. For any observer, it was clearly a call to another way of thinking. Each time the homosexual movement takes a public stand, it needs to be peacefully and gently opposed, as this priest has done, most probably in his own parish district. He has a God-given right to call the sheep in his own parish back to truth. People don't realize that a priest is responsible for ALL the souls in his parish, and his job and that of the parish is to be a beacon, a light to truth to those living in darkness around the parish. The priest was simply doing his job.
