Hero of flight 93 on 9-11 was devout Catholic, had a premonition

The widow of Flight 93 hero Thomas Burnett says her husband was a devout Catholic who had premonitions of the fate that met him and 44 others on the fateful day of September 11, 2001 — including a hunch his life would not be a long one and that his mission in life would somehow involve the White House.

It is now widely believed the hijacked plane, which crashed into a rural part of western Pennsylvania, was aimed at the White House, the CIA, or the U.S. Capitol before passengers led by Burnett overpowered the al Qaeda operatives.

This Week’s Smoke of Satan: How homosexual activists slandered the memory of the heroic priest who gave his life on 9-11.



In 1972, Pope Paul VI observed,

“From some fissure,
the smoke of Satan
has entered the Temple of God.”

The purpose of this weekly column is to help wake
the bulk of the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics
from their self-imposed slumber
and powerfully remind them of who they are,
and what they are called by God, to be.

This week’s story: How homosexual activists slandered the memory of the heroic priest who gave his life on 9-11.

Prior to Father Mike’s death, everyone who knew him for any length of time would never describe him as a homosexual. In fact, never has even one homosexual activist ever provided evidence that Father Mike was “gay”. Yet, in newspapers immediately after the Funeral Mass Brendan Fay was quoted saying Father Mike was a homosexual. Brendan Fay arranged a publicity event for the media where many people spoke of Father Mike’s concern for the homosexual community and claimed Father Mike was “gay”. This was news to me who knew Father Mike for nearly a decade.

The Media Lies About Father Mike

After the first series of newspapers stories reported Father Mike being homosexual, suddenly politicians were standing up in Congress lamenting the death of “Father Mike, the gay priest”. Concerned that Father Mike was being used by homosexual activists, I began to contact many people who knew Father Mike for as long as I knew him or longer. I wanted the truth about Father Mike to be published. Not one of these longtime friends every heard or saw anything that Father Mike did to indicate he was homosexual. I personally spent weeks at a time with Father Mike where he and I spoke about many personal matters. Not once was there even a suggestion that Father Mike was “gay”. Father Mike was a celibate Catholic Priest and nothing more.

As time passed, Brendan Fay began to organize events claming Father Mike to be “Hero, Priest and Gay”. The media began referring to Father Mike now as being not just “gay”, but an “openly gay” Priest. None of this was true. I wrote a letter to the Gannett Newspaper Chain about one such reference to Father Mike. The response was to disregard the truthfulness of the article by citing law that you can’t defame a dead person. I wrote back saying I wasn’t bringing a defamation claim, I only wanted the truth about Father Mike to be published. No further response was received from the Gannett Chain. The New York Times also wrote an article that Father Mike was a homosexual. I wrote to the New York Times requesting evidence supporting their story since many, many people did not believe Father Mike to be “gay”. No response was also received from the New York Times in my request that the truth be published.

In fact, one newspaper wrote an article about Father Mike proclaiming he was homosexual. When the newspaper was challenged about the story, the response from the Editor was shocking. The Editor wrote that it really didn’t matter if Father Mike was a homosexual or not. The Editor stated that homosexuals are a disadvantaged group and if the story helped them with their self-esteem then Father Mike would be happy. In other words, the truth about Father Mike being a faithful Catholic Priest didn’t matter in our politically correct world.

As more time passed after Father Mike’s death, homosexual activists embellished even more their story about Father Mike. During “Gay Pride Week” in the New York City area, one newspaper published the falsehood that Father Mike had been a “leader” in the homosexual “GLBT movement” (gay, lesbian, bisexual and transsexual). The lies about Father Mike continued to grow in the politically correct media. Sadly, even a member of the Catholic hierarchy in New York commented in the media that Father Mike was “a gay Priest”. When questioned later about the truth of this comment, the Priest admitted he only knew what he “read in the media” about Father Mike.
