Located in the “heart” of “boy’s town” Chicago Cubs go gay.

The Cubs have a long history of support in the LGBT community. In 2010, Cubs owner Laura Ricketts and Mr. Cub, Ernie Banks, headlined the team’s float in Chicago’s annual Pride Parade. Chicago’s Windy City Times will again host an annual Pride Day at Wrigley Field in September of this year.

Recent team donations have supported Cubs Care Courts, the gymnasium at Lake View’s Center on Halsted ($30,000 in 2011) and the AIDS Foundation of Chicago ($50,000 in 2009) as well as many other organizations serving the LGBT community.

Pro life group offers housing, training, other necessary assistance to pregnant moms. And it works!

Pro-lifers care deeply for pregnant mothers and their babies, and want the very best for them over the long term.

Toward that end, Good Counsel has mothers in crisis stay with us during their pregnancies, and for up to a year after delivery.

When the mothers transition to independent living, they enter our Exodus Program, where their case manager visits them twice-monthly for the next two years. During these visits, the case manager observes, offers advice, counsel, TLC, and other supports to ensure that mom and child(ren) are on the road to complete, functional independence.

Often, mothers are invited back to Good Counsel for dinner and participation in other programming.

The Six Precepts of the Catholic Church

1.  To respectfully and devoutly assist at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass on all Sundays and Holydays of Obligation.

 2.  To fast and abstain on the days appointed.

 3.  To go to Confession at least once a year during the Easter Season.

 4.  To receive the Sacrament of the Most Holy Eucharist at least once a year during the Easter Season.

 5.  To contribute financially (i.e. give money) to the support of the Catholic Church.

 6. To never violate the laws concerning the Sacrament of Matrimony.

One of the largest sources of support for the Homosexual Movement and Gay Agenda is Corporate America.

One of the largest sources of support for the Homosexual Movement and Gay Agenda is Corporate America — Coke-Cola, Pepsi, Ford (Globe), General Motors, American Express, Best Buy, Lehman Brothers, Fannie Mae, Mellon Financial, Shell, Dell, Avon, Estee Lauder, Coors, General Electric, General Mills, Kraft, Johnson & Johnson, Eli Lilly, Hyatt, State farm, Avis, Starbucks, Subway, Nintendo/Gameboy, IKEA, J.C. Penney, Sears, Sam’s Club, Target, Wal-Mart (Pride), Weight Watchers, IBM, Intel, AT&T, and on and on.

I suspect, although I cannot prove, that virtually all major U.S. business corporations have an agreement with the NWO elite that requires them to “donate” a portion of their profits to advance the various pet “charities” of the New World Order. Pro-life groups are not on the list.

The Federal government, of course, has done its part to advance the Homosexual agenda. Among the Federal Agencies and programs that have supported the Homosexual Movement are the Center for Disease Control, CETA (Comprehensive Employment and Training Act), the National Institutes of Health, Legal Services Corporation, National Park Service, National Public Radio (funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting), to name but a few. The Internal Revenue Service has awarded the 501 (c) (3) tax deductible status to homosexual organizations that “foster an understanding and tolerance of homosexuals.”

When you add the power of the liberal mass media that has always backed the Homosexual Movement, you’re looking at one powerful propaganda machine.

Reader comments totally support Father John Corapi. Many prayers offered up.


Comment by Susan on March 19, 2011 7:02 pm

Father Corapi is a dedicated priest & though have only listened to him via EWTN, know he is innocent. I will pray for this man of God as well as his accuser(s). Father Corapi, I know you have more than my prayers as you go through this trial. Seems the “evil one” is trying to cause you to cease from spreading the TRUTH that our Lord would have you speak! Keep remembering “NO CROSS, NO CROWN!”

Comment by Theresa H on March 19, 2011 7:48 pm

Despite his suffering he asks that we “pray for all concerned.” That means for the accuser, too. He has said in the past “No-one is beyond God’s help! No-one!”

I believe him.

Comment by David D on March 19, 2011 10:45 pm

Praying for you, Fr. Corapi. May our Lord give you strength and may St. Michael the Archangel fortify your Masses said for us. Please God, we can make small sacrifices and offer up our loss in reparation for the false accusations against you.

Thank you for including your accuser in your prayer intentions. You and Archbishop Dolan came out with some inspiring words for us lay Catholics.

Looking at the world as the world truly is, these days, can be an exercise on humility for gift of our faith, but, in thanksgiving, you priestly ministry is characterized by the insightful direction you provide.

God is good, we pray for the grace of God to redeem you and for your accuser to come to her senses

Comment by Maria D on March 20, 2011 4:55 am

Dear Fr Corapi

Our hearts go out to you. You are being crucified by the devil to break down the Catholic Church. You are much loved and supported by Catholics in the UK and will pray for you.

I ask every God fearing person to support this priest. He has touched the hearts of thousand through EWTN and he is a threat to the sects and the devil, so this evil follows.

I am emailing everyone to support you .

It is truly Lent for you dear Father. But God will send His Angels to support you.

We in the UK will watch and pray with you.

Maria

Fr Corapi, I have noticed the attack on Priests as guilty, whether they are guilty or not. It is a terrible “cross” that has been put upon so many good Priests. You are in my prayers. Cardinal Bernadine was put through this some ordeal and was proven innocent. I pray that the same will be proven with you soon. You are known and loved by so many that I’m am sure that the heavens will be flooded.

Love,

Ginnie

Comment by Barbara on March 20, 2011 8:13 am

Fr. Corapi, about a month ago I started to include you in my prayers. When I saw the strong leaders in the Catholic Church being attacked and silenced, I knew your day was coming. I have to be honest, though, I didn’t think it would be this soon. I know a very Holy Priest who has gone through a similar situation and he has been vindicated. Although you are carrying your cross, just like Jesus, the Resurrection is coming. St. Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle…………..

Comment by Marg on March 20, 2011 8:28 am

Father you are everything a priest should be. Loyal to the Church, full of love for Our Lord and His Mother, a beacon of light in this dark world.

I know you are innocent and I pray that you’ll soon be vindicated.

Comment by Jeannie P on March 20, 2011 10:40 am

Every one of our beloved Priests is on the Via Dolorosa and upon arrival on cavalry, his crucifixion will be complete. I, personally, have not, will not bite the poisoned bait of any accuser of the fine, ordained men who serve the Lord. Father Corapi is loved by God and by us; he knows, as we do, everyone born of a woman is capable of great sin and guilt is for God to forgive and not for me to conjecture about. Mine it is to pray for our repentance, to plead for mercy for all souls, including mine.

Comment by Elizabeth on March 20, 2011 4:36 pm

Fr. Corapi, I’m so sorry this is another cross to bear. You have my support. I will pray for you. God will give you the strength to get through this and you will. You are strong and your faith will see you through. God Bless You.

Comment by Jim on March 20, 2011 5:54 pm

Father, I pray for you and stand behind you 100%. You’ve always been open and hid nothing of your past from anyone and I know you have nothing to hide now. I pray to Our Lady to stop these evil ones trying to silence your teaching. Remember, “Our Mama wears combat boots!”…..

Vatican officials: in supporting immigrants, the church is acting on principle, not pragmatism.

In Europe, as in the United States, the Roman Catholic Church has assumed a leading role as a protector of, and advocate for, immigrants. But whereas the largest bloc of migrants to the United States are Catholic, the majority of European immigrants are Muslim.

In the United States, some critics of the church accuse outspoken clerics such as Cardinal Roger Mahony of Los Angeles of self-interest when they support immigrant rights and immigration reform. There is logic to the argument because Latin American Catholics are pumping new life into a church that has been losing its hold on many native-born Americans.

Such an argument is more difficult to make in Europe, where the ranks of native-born Catholics are declining without being refreshed by large numbers of Catholic immigrants. Vatican officials say that, in supporting immigrants, the church is acting on principle, not pragmatism — and that the Catholic record in Europe lends credence to those who say that American bishops have pure intentions in their immigration advocacy.

“For the church, the perspective is … the right of the human person to be treated with dignity,” said Father Federico Lombardi, the chief Vatican spokesman. “It is a general principle; it’s not just a religious principle. It is more profound.”

United Way Organizations in Sarasota, Florida and Buffalo, New York Support Abortion Business

Sarasota, FL (LifeNews.com) — United Way local affiliates in two locations are coming under fire for making donations to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion business.

Local pro-life advocates in Sarasota, Florida say the United Way of Sarasota County has continued to give money to Planned Parenthood as it has done since 1976. That accounts for 31 of the 42 years Planned Parenthood has been located in the area. United Way has contributed $42,000 annually for each of the last three years to the Florida-based Planned Parenthood under the ironic category of “Building Strong Children and Families.”

The UW affiliate gave $20,380 for Planned Parenthood programs targeted at teenagers and another $21,620 for programs targeting low-income area residents.

Local pro-life advocates are asking people to contact members of the UW board, including Marc Lazarus, president and CEO of R&L Healthcare Advisors; Debra Douglas, FCCI Insurance Group executive vice president; and Susan Scott, Sarasota County deputy county administrator.

Meanwhile, the Buffalo-area United Way is also under fire. A local pro-life group is calling on Buffalo residents to stop funding the UW of Buffalo and Erie County after the organization rescinded a policy that prevented funding for any agencies that do abortions. Stacia Zoladz Vogel, president of Buffalo Regional Right to Life, said the United Way’s decision was “outrageous” and “unacceptable.” Buffalo pro-life advocates, like those in Florida, say the fact that the donations are not used directly to pay for abortions doesn’t matter because the money is fungible and frees up Planned Parenthood funds that would have otherwise have gone to pay for and promote abortions.
