Miami Archdiocese again Features Prominent Gay-Activist Priest

By Eric Giunta

January 25, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Miami Archdiocese’s St. Thomas University is once again sponsoring spiritual exercises by a gay-activist priest, who is known for encouraging his followers to immerse themselves in pagan rituals.

Fr. Richard Rohr, a Franciscan, is scheduled to deliver a “Scripture and Spirituality” reflection at the university’s Chapel of St Anthony. The evening of reflection is noted approvingly in the Archdiocese’s latest “pastoral bulletin,” dated January 15.

Fr. Rohr is known for his dissent from the teachings of the church, despite his being a Franciscan monk.

He is on record admitting that he does not adhere to Catholic teaching on contraception, the ordination of women to the priesthood, and homosexuality. In answer to one question about homosexuality, Fr. Rohr answered, “I think God would ask of the homosexual relationship exactly what God asks of the heterosexual relationship: truth, faithfulness, long-suffering, and the continuing forgiveness of the other.”

Additionally, Fr. Rohr has faced criticism due to his advocacy of radical feminist critique of Judeo-Christian “patriarchy” (including the Bible’s references to God in masculine terms), as well as his encouragement of the use of various pagan rituals in devotions he leads (e.g., the enneagram). He is also known for conducting spiritual retreats where men practice ritual nudism.

Fr. Richard Rohr serves as director for the Center for Action and Contemplation (CAC), which he founded in 1987. The Center serves as a hotbed for radical Christian dissent. It is a frequent sponsor and constituent of “Call to Action,” an umbrella sect known for its “pseudo-Catholicism.” In 1997, CAC endorsed the 4th National Symposium on “A National Dialogue on Lesbian/Gay Issues and Catholicism,” sponsored by New Ways Ministry.

Report: Obama’s nominations neither moderate nor left of center, but radical.

Mathew Staver, the founder of Liberty Counsel and the Dean of Liberty University School of Law, commented on the new report.

“The list of individuals, their comments, and backgrounds demonstrates that President Obama uses a radical ideological litmus test to select his nominees, which clearly takes preference over experience or qualifications,” he said.

“Obama’s nominations are neither moderate nor merely left of center. They can best be described as radical. They are clearly out of touch with all but a radical fringe. Obama’s pattern of choosing radical ideologues raises serious concern about the competency of the government,” he concluded.

Wowed!

She kept telling me not to waste her time. She wanted an abortion and was not changing her mind. Then she saw the baby on ultra sound tumbling, sucking his thumb and doing generally very cute baby things and she was “Wowed.”

HAARETZ: Editorial in defense of Ven. Pius XII

The campaign against Pope Pius XII is doomed to failure because his detractors cannot sustain their main charges against him – that he was silent, pro-Nazi, and did little or nothing to help the Jews – with evidence. Perhaps only in a backward world such as ours would the one man who did more than any other wartime leader to help Jews and other Nazi victims, receive the greatest condemnation.

Besides being probably the largest Pro-Life March in Washington to commemorate the January 22, 1973 U. S. Supreme Court’s unconstitutional rulings that legalized child-killing in America, this year’s 37th annual March for Life afforded many opportunities to advance our cause.

There were meetings, seminars, planning sessions, talks, discussions, and even the scheduling of numerable new programs to be launched in 2010.

It wasn’t only the regularly scheduled programs that produced much positive input; but literally hundreds of discussions over the tables engendered ideas for successful activities in the coming year.

One opportunity I had fall in my lap was a chance to talk to the infamous Fr. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., president of the University of Notre Dame, who just happened to be standing near some Notre Dame students and one of the huge signs that said, “Fr. Jenkins, Free the N. D. 88,” referring to the eighty-eight pro-lifers where were arrested at Notre Dame last spring while protesting the invitation of pro-abortion Barack Obama to receive a law degree and speak at the graduation exercises.
