What goes on today at most colleges is offensive and destructive from a moral perspective.

Chiding presidential candidate Rick Santorum for calling America’s colleges “indoctrination mills,” MSNBC host Ed Schultz recently accused Mr. Santorum of citing a “bogus study” from the Cardinal Newman Society.

What’s bogus is MSNBC’s reporting. Mr. Santorum is right about the indoctrination.

What has the liberal media all flustered is Mr. Santorum’s frank criticism of America’s colleges and their frequent hostility toward traditional religious values.

Congratulate Pro-Life Hero, Archbishop Burke, on his elevation to Cardinal

On Tuesday, October 19, Pope Benedict XVI named Raymond Burke, archbishop emeritus of St. Louis and current Prefect of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura, as one of 24 archbishops who will be made a cardinal of the Catholic Church during the consistory in November.

All faithful Catholics and pro-life and pro-family individuals around the world have joyfully greeted the news of this great honor.

Archbishop Burke is an unrelenting champion of the rights of the unborn, the natural family, and orthodox Catholicism. He is viewed as a personal hero and the staunchest of allies by those who are active in promoting authentic Catholic education, as well as those within the pro-life and pro-family movements.

Archbishop Burke has never hesitated to make bold public statements in defense of Catholic orthodoxy and the culture of life, or to take public action against the culture of death. Notably, Archbishop Burke is one of the bishops who have upheld and defended Cardinal Ratzinger’s clear instruction that persistently pro-abortion politicians or public figures must not be admitted to communion until they publicly repent. He was also one of the 88 U.S. bishops who spoke up against Notre Dame’s decision to honor President Barack Obama at last year’s Commencement ceremonies.

As a cardinal, Archbishop Burke will not only be elevated as one of the princes of the Church, but will be placed among the ranks of those who could become our future pope.

Archbishop Burke deserves enthusiastic congratulations for this honor and needs our encouragement to continue to be a shining example of how a faithful bishop can boldly speak out and effectively lead in today’s world.

American Catholics Send Pope Benedict XVI More than One Million Prayers

The Cardinal Newman Society compiled this spiritual bouquet for Pope Benedict XVI following Archbishop Timothy Dolan’s call for prayers for the Holy Father on Palm Sunday 2010.  By Pentecost Sunday more than 1,070,302 prayers were pledged.  This spiritual bouquet was presented to Archbishop Pietro Sambi, the Apostolic Nuncio to the United States of America, who in turn sent it to the Vatican.

“On behalf of the more than 20,000 members of The Cardinal Newman Society and thousands more of the faithful, this spiritual bouquet of prayers collected during Eastertide is made of the feast of Saints Peter and Paul … in grateful appreciation to our shepherd for his prayerful Christian witness.  We beseech our Blessed Mother, Blessed Saint Michael and the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul to pray for our Holy Father.  Oremus pro Pontifice!”

Left-wing Jesuits at America have finally “lost it”

america

According to the editors of America Magazine:

Four steps are necessary for the U.S. church to escape the strengthening riptide of sectarian conflict and re-establish trust between universities and the hierarchy. First, the bishops’ discipline about speakers and awards at Catholic institutions should be narrowed to exclude from platforms and awards only those Catholics who explicitly oppose formal Catholic teaching. Second, in politics we must reaffirm the distinction between the authoritative teaching of moral principles and legitimate prudential differences in applying principles to public life. Third, all sides should return to the teaching of the Second Vatican Council and Pope Paul VI that in politics there are usually several ways to attain the same goals. Finally, church leaders must promote the primacy of charity among Catholics who advocate different political options. For as the council declared, “The bonds which unite the faithful are mightier than anything which divides them” (“Pastoral Constitution on the Church in the Modern World,” No. 92).

Editor’s note: What are these guys smoking?

Here’s my four steps: 1) Keep those who advocate immoral and non-Catholic political and/or religious positions OUT of Catholic universities, no matter WHO they might be and no matter with whom they might be associated. 2) Keep those who advocate positions contrary to the authentic teachings of the Catholic Church (ESPECIALLY POLITICIANS and Professors) as far away from Catholic universities as possible. 3) Religion is not politics. Abortion is not health care. Universities should prepare students to be able to tell the difference. Christ demands that we Catholics know the truth and stand up for it … on campus or off. 4) Sometime, loving one’s neighbor means engaging in fraternal correction … especially when it comes to fundamental issues like abortion. Students need to know that there is no common ground between life and death. Both are absolute opposites. Charity demands that Catholics choose life, without reservation.

The guys at America should know better! Abortion remains primarily an ethical and moral issue that has so far claimed the lives of nearly a third of today’s under thirty population.

Abortion is no more a political issue than the Holocaust was, during World War II. Abortion remains the greatest moral evil of our times.

Pro-death politicians and the editors of America would LIKE us to believe that abortion is a political issue, but many of us are simply NOT that stupid! Abortion is a totally immoral act that just happens to have been temporarily decriminalized by a corrupt government.  But it will not stand, forever.  

Until then, we fight.

Want dialogue? Stop the killing. Then we can talk!

In the wake of the Notre Dame commencement scandal, Catholic college leaders representing some of the worst violators of the U.S. bishops’ 2004 ban on honoring public opponents of fundamental Catholic teachings are apparently lobbying the bishops to withdraw their policy.
