Cardinal Dolan bans ten filthy homosexuals and their supporters from Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral.

Cardinal Timothy Dolan today used the NYPD to prohibit from Sunday worship services gay Catholics and their allies by barring their entry into NYC’s historic St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the iconic home of the Roman Catholic Church in New York.

The small group of silent Catholic protestors were threatened with arrest by a New York City Police detective — unless they first washed their hands.

The ten Catholics, who are LGBT and not LGBT, and even parents of LGBT people, were responding to Cardinal Dolan’s April 25 blog post, “All Are Welcome!,” which tells gay people who wish to participate in the Catholic faith, you must first “wash your hands!” They labeled their actions today a “Dirty Hands Vigil.”

Should Christians pray for the recovery of a 90-year-old doctor who helped pioneer abortion services in New York City?

A 90-year-old doctor who helped pioneer abortion services in the city was in critical condition Wednesday after he was hit by an SUV that jumped a curb outside of Saks Fifth Avenue a day earlier.

He suffered a broken neck, broken hip, and two broken legs.

Dr. Day and two colleagues founded VIP Medical Associates in 1972. The practice was the first in the state to provide abortions to women with low income, which were legal in New York before the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision the following year.

Editor’s note: This is arguably much better than being chopped up into little pieces and summarily thrown into a garbage can. Perhaps the doctor will now have the necessary time and inspiration to mend his ways.

You have heard that it has been said, Thou shall love thy neighbor, and hate thy enemy. But I say to you, Love your enemies: do good to them that hate you: and pray for them that persecute and calumniate you: That you may be the children of your Father who is in heaven, who make his sun to rise upon the good, and bad, and rain upon the just and the unjust.  (Matthew 5:43-45)

When premarital sex, homosexuality, contraception, and abortion are encouraged in health class, isn’t pint-size Mayor Bloomberg’s crusade against sugary drinks a bit odd?

 

As the Church is backed into a corner because of its teaching on sexuality, and its institutions face increasing pressure to compromise and cooperate with abortion, gay marriage, and contraception, and after the city bans religious groups from using public property, lawmakers are getting moralistic about food. It’s a good thing if people eat less fat and sugar, to be sure, but let’s put first things first.

The alternative to bodily obsession is an integrated view of human existence, a concern for body and soul in due proportion, in which appetites are in harmony with right reason, and pleasure is not disdained but enjoyed properly (“insensibility” is also a vice, St. Thomas points out). For millennia, spiritual writers have remarked that corporal mortification, such as fasting, purifies the soul. Ordering one’s appetite goes a long way in ordering another. But it’s a sign of sickness when food and fitness become a rival religion.

Editor’s note: This type of ideology is also very popular with homosexuals. Perhaps the pint-size mayor is being less than candid with the people of New York City.

NYC bans large size, sugary soft drinks. What’s next … banning gay men from having sex and spreading deadly diseases?

Will they ban gay men from having sex and causing disease and death??

Veteran New York abortionist hopes to kill 10,000 babies a year … or more.

Forty years of baby-killing can really change a person

“I was totally committed to the work,” said Hoffman, who was married at the time. “There was no way I could be the mother I wanted to be.”

“She’s probably been the most committed and notorious abortion provider in New York City history,” he said. “She’s overseen the killing of children in huge numbers for over 40 years with absolutely no remorse.”

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.

New York City: Crews battle blaze at historic Church of St. James the Apostle

A frightening blaze at Manhattan’s second-oldest Catholic church today brought Archbishop Timothy Dolan rushing down to the site himself to survey the damage.

Smoke and flames could be seen billowing from the rooftop of the Church of St. James the Apostle at 3 James St. in Lower Manhattan around noon after the fire broke out on the 183-year-old structure’s top floor.

“This has to be one of the few times I was grateful the church was empty,” Dolan said while thanking firefighters who had rushed to the landmarked, pillared church to put out the blaze.

He emphasized the church’s significance.

“It is a particularly historic church,” he said. “This church serves a very vibrant community, and we need to survey the damage.”
