More from Tom Roeser on liberals, Cardinal George, the Lavender Priesthood, and free speech

Cracking down on free speech are favorite tactics of the Left. You read here yesterday that the Cardinal Archbishop of Chicago wrote to all members of an advisory board of a Catholic group which is not affiliated in any way with the archdiocese… urging them to use their influence to silence me in my personal correspondence. That means everything I may write as a private citizen.

He means what I write here on my own blog where I publish stuff on my own. Ban it? Shut me down? I say: Try it. Hey in 2010 are we reenacting Elijah Lovejoy? Not me. I’m a lover not a martyr.

Did I write attacks on his and my Church on this blog? Nope. I’m in love with the Church. Did I write attacks on…say the Jews? Nope I’m interested in the historical developmental cadence from the Jewish Bible and faith to my own. I criticized not his action,, not his faculties, not his primacy as archbishop…but because I thought he should not have committed Catholicism in so many words, with no qualifiers, to support ObamaCare if the Hyde language were included.

He also said I criticized him and the Pope under the rubric of hate speech. Nope. But I did talk about The Lavender Priesthood. Scroll down this blog and you’ll see it.

But While I’m At It…

By the way, on April 7 the archdiocese will honor Fr. Michael Pfleger for his work for “social justice.” Pfleger has lavished praise on The Nation of Islam’s maximum leader Louis Farrakhan…and had him speak several times at Catholic Mass…Farrakhan, who has called Judaism a “gutter religion.” Pfleger wants handguns confiscated and has no great concern about legal niceties. He shouted at a crowd gathered in front of a legally constituted gun shop last year…calling to the owner “come out like the rat you are or we’ll DRAG YOU OUT!” He also mentioned the phrase “snuff you out.” Even Jesse Jackson got scared at that one.

Pfleger is the guy the archdiocese thinks merits a social justice award.

Encouragement for one brand of talk and silencing the rights of others heedless of the 1st amendment is increasingly the trademark of the Left. The Far Left.
