Tom Roeser, Catholic, dead at 82

by Doug Lawrence

I never met Tom Roeser, but through his extensive writings and his long, Chicago broadcast radio career, I felt like I did.

Tom was a Catholic, a Republican, a conservative, a media personality, a family man, a scholar, and many other things.

I read all his daily blog posts and also listened to his radio show, whenever possible.

Tom Roeser 1928-2011

Tom contended with the rich and the powerful on his own terms, suitably enlightened by the traditional Catholic beliefs and practices that he learned and perfected, way back when, with the help of his beloved Rev. Fr. Ernie. Because of this, and his extensive business and government experience, Tom was a hard guy to fool.

Much like the late Archbishop Fulton Sheen, Tom always managed to deliver his insightful messages with style and grace … coupled with an appropriate dose of humor.

Tom was a great guy. We’ll miss him … a lot. I would also like to extend my sincere condolences to the entire Roeser family.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May Tom’s soul and all the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

Tom Roeser Criticizes Milwaukee Archbishop Listecki for His Position On Madison, WI Union Stand-off.

CHICAGO — To the Most Rev. Jerome Listecki, archbishop of Milwaukee: What in the world possessed you to turn out a statement conveying the view of all the state’s bishops that comes down on the side of the amply well- paid union workers in Wisconsin?

I write as a labor union member in good standing ( American Federation of Television and Radio Artists AFL- CIO). Your statement maintains it is a plea for “ the legitimate rights” of public employees. Thus it was immediately snapped up by the liberal media as an endorsement of the well-paid public employees under the misleading rubric of “ social justice.”

Archbishop, where is the “social justice” when taxpayer- paid lawmakers flee the state to avoid a democratic vote in an era when citizens are rebelling against a looming public- pension crisis that threatens bankruptcy in cities,counties, and states — a crisis made possible by public employees, already protected by civil service and who cannot be terminated, who hold politicians hostage in their collective bargaining?

The crowd demonstrating in Madison claims to support democracy like the crowds urging democracy in Tunisia. In reality, they are antithetical to democracy, cheering dereliction of legislative duty, supporting the thwarting of the will of the majority by supporting the Democratic minority that has fled to Illinois.

Regrettably they are using your statement among others as a pretext — and tying Catholic theology to it.

Editor’s note: Archbishop Listecki comes from Chicago, and he’s obviously been infected by Chicago’s liberal politics. Nothing surprising there. Nor is there anything surprising about one bishop refusing to criticize another. Politics as usual … Catholic style!

Tom Roeser: Liberalism has been called by some a mental disorder but essentially it’s a spiritual illness.

Probably the most bitter disappointment to me has been the stealthy takeover of the Catholic church by liberal theologians. They influenced the appointment of liberal bishops (you have to try hard to exceed the mysterious Bernardin whose history is as masked by liberals in the Church as is Obama’s school grades and early life) under the false rubric of “the Spirit [sic] of Vatican II.”

When I criticized my own bishop for allowing the USCCB, the bishops’ trade association which he headed, of cutting a deal to support ObamaCare he called me a “hate monger” the same week he conferred a reward on Fr. Pfleger for “social justice”—the same Fr. Pfleger who went on a tirade before a crowd gathered in front of a legally constituted gun shop, demanding the legitimate owner come outside or “we’ll come in and drag you out like the rat you are!” Then announcing over a loud-speaker that he—Fr. Pfleger—“will snuff you out!”—a threat of murder.

My bishop criticized me for using my own personal blog to express my views and urged advisory council members of a Catholic organization to get rid of me. This same bishop and the USCCB issued not a single word of complaint about the Congress’ repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell…while the organization lobbied extensively on its website and personally for passage of the DREAM Act.

Roeser: While not all homosexuals are same-sex pedophiles, all same-sex pedophiles are homosexuals.

Allen contrasts two views—Benedict’s and that of Dominican priest Thomas Doyle who has been studying the crisis for years.  Benedict is indubitably right.  He goes straight to the heart of the problem—in “priestly formation” i.e. the theology taught in seminaries and lays the blame where it belongs on the heretical dogma of relativism which by downplaying good and evil and in Allen’s words “treating morality as a matter of weighing consequences” the door was opened to “justifying gravely immoral behavior including the sexual exploitation of minors.”   Allen you see ran a seminar on the issue with George Weigel.

George Weigel’s Observations

Catholic Citizens of Illinois Hosts Real Catholic TV’s Michael Voris

Michael Voris – 3rd from right

December 10th – Chicago, Illinois

Nancy W. Reports:

We had an excellent time today at Mr.Thomas Roeser’s Catholic Citizen monthly luncheon, wish you were there!

Michael Voris gave a fabulous talk, without notes! He even fielded some questions and gave very charitable answers, right off the cuff! It was very impressive.

It looks as though he has suffered through some personal losses in his life, which is usually how the Lord gets our attention.

I tried to Google search to find out more about him but could only find info on sites like Richard Dawkins, Jihad Watch and other Catholic haters, no Wikipedia.

The long of the short of it is, the innocent must suffer for the sins of the guilty, martyrdom. Of course, I’d like to get a few shots in first, but that’s just me, although I’m far from innocent!

Honestly, if you ever get a chance to hear Michael Voris, you won’t be disappointed. He’s really put his life on the line for the truth. Please keep him and everyone at Real Catholic TV, in your prayers.

Blessings ~ Nancy

St. Benedict, pray for us.

p.s. Also pray for Rev. Father Fanelli. He will be celebrating his 40th Priestly anniversary on January 9th!

Merry Christmas!

Roeser: It’s high time for the Gay Lobby to come clean and acknowledge that what it seeks is not tolerance…which to an overwhelming degree it has and deserves …but approval…approval that can only come from those who forsake the Judeo Christian moral tradition.

In Genesis (19:1-11) and Leviticus (18:22, 20:13)  the word of God pronounces that homosexuality is condemned in the story of Sodom, that Paul inveighs against the practice in Corinthians (6:9), Romans (1:18-32) and in the first chapter of his first letter to Timothy.

Some theological revisionists have said the passages pertain to other evils but one has to grunt until his eyes bug out to adjust to that formulation.

The important thing is that Meeks, his church and overwhelming number of Baptists subscribe.   Pronouncing their beliefs anathema to Meeks’ mayoral election is a startling overreach by McClelland and a clear-cut sanction of what may well be religious bigotry by NBC.

And of course this scriptural condemnation is not only subscribed to by Baptists but the overwhelming number of Christians including by my own Catholic Church.

“Civil Unions” typify what the Apostle Paul called “The Mystery of Iniquity.”

Inspired by yesterday’s column at TomRoeser.com:

Tom Roeser praised Cardinal George for his tireless advocacy against the Illinois civil unions bill, while taking to task the late Cardinal Bernardin, who, to a great degree, remains largely responsible for getting us into this mess, in the first place.

But the main subject of this post is “The Mystery of Iniquity” of which St. Paul writes:

2Th 2:1-12  And we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and of our gathering together unto him:  That you be not easily moved from your sense nor be terrified, neither by spirit nor by word nor by epistle. As sent from us, as if the day of the Lord were at hand.

Let no man deceive you by any means: for unless there come a revolt first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition Who opposeth and is lifted up above all that is called God or that is worshipped, so that he sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself as if he were God.

Remember you not that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?  And now you know what withholdeth, that he may be revealed in his time.

For the mystery of iniquity already worketh: only that he who now holdeth do hold, until he be taken out of the way. And then that wicked one shall be revealed: whom the Lord Jesus shall kill with the spirit of his mouth and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: him Whose coming is according to the working of Satan, in all power and signs and lying wonders: And in all seduction of iniquity to them that perish: because they receive not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

Therefore God shall send them the operation of error, to believe lying: That all may be judged who have not believed the truth but have consented to iniquity.

The question (mystery) is: If God is unalterably opposed to certain particular types of evil, then why does he even permit it? Why doesn’t he simply eliminate the people who commit murder, practice sodomy, oppress the poor, and defraud working people of their wages?

One possible answer: If God, according to his own very high standards, chose to withhold his grace and subsequently eliminate all of these things, would there be anyone still left alive on earth?

Tom Roeser Reports On Chicago CCHD Shenanigans, Archdiocesan Politics


… A terrible thing is happening: community groups are being asked….downright asked, mind you…whether they support abortion or non-traditional marriage.    Because if they don’t  they won’t get any Catholic money.  Terrible.  Well in this archdiocese where the tiller slips to-and-fro, it turns out that (Father) Just Call Me Larry Dowling’s auxiliary bishop is a liberal, Bishop Francis Kane.

Sometime between October 2 when Rey Flores conducted a meeting at Our Lady of Sorrows Basilica and November 2 when Just Call Me Larry Dowling’s letter was sent to the Cardinal, Flores was fired. He doesn’t know when but Dowling started referring to him as “the former director.”Yesterday Bishop Kane told the USCCB in Baltimore that he prefers the Chicago Campaign for Human Development and the national office follow the  same guidelines and Tribune religion editor Manya A. Bracheear…you know her, she bills herself as The Seeker…reported that “to abide by these guidelines the leaders of the campaign in Chicago might have to scale back some of the changes they rolled out in August when they awarded funds to groups providing  pregnancy counseling to divert women from getting abortions.” 

Aha.  That gives us a pretty good clue as to who fired Rey Flores.

President says his message “didn’t get through”. On the contrary …


According to Tom Roeser (with whom I agree) …

Watching President Obama at his news conference yesterday ratified for me that he is a congenital Leftist who is truly in-educable.  Declaring truthfully that he and his Dem allies in Congress “took a shellacking” he made several assertions that proved he not only hasn’t learned from Nov. 2 but is in serious denial.

He said the electorate reacted to the economy’s woes. Wrong. It reacted to his programs which cost a trillion dollars with no results but worsened employment. He said he had to rush through a great many programs without adequate explanation. Wrong. His major programs were thoroughly defended by him: 64 separate addresses alone on health care. Many-many news conferences by him and his cabinet touched on cap and trade…stimulus—you name it.
He seemed to thrive on the myth that Republicans simply opposed… and advanced no alternative programs. Wrong.  Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.l among others advanced a comprehensive re-ordering of budget and spending….so comprehensive that Obama’s favorite economist Nobel Prize-winner Paul Krugman of Princeton, columnist for The New York Times made a systemic critique of it.

Obama seemed annoyed that the voters don’t get what he tried to do.  He expressed contrition that “some of the finest public servants I have ever met” encountered defeat after risking their popularity by voting for his measures. Good night…does this man not understand that the electorate does not want his program and the men who were defeated challenged their electorates saying they were wrong?

The Catholic Church’s Courageous TV Defender


Who is Michael Voris?

Mike Voris is a former seminarian, single, who packed it in to become a CBS journalist in New York where he worked alongside Dan Rather (with whom Voris was not impressed) and as a muck-raking TV investigative reporter and anchor in several smaller cities.    The pay was much better than regular workaday scribes and he freely acknowledged to me that in those years he “lived a horrible life in an immoral cesspool.”   Throughout those years, his mother, like Augustine’s Monica, scolded, remonstrated with him and prayed mightily for her son—to no avail.   But his life turned around after a shock when his favorite brother, in the seeming bloom of health, dropped dead in his mid-40s.

So shaken out of his hedonist past, Michael packed  it in once again and resolved to use his finely-honed communications skills in eloquent support of  God and His Church.  Mike scooped up $700,000 of his savings and started a TV business with himself as an unabashedly militant but thoroughly responsible Catholic commentator…writing, researching, producing and performing in short erudite yet punchy TV commentaries for the Internet that would be sent out free to everyone who wishes to subscribe.

The theory is you subscribe and if you have a few bucks you chip in to keep the apostolate going.  So far financially it’s tough going but Mike has the firm belief that God will see it through.

His commentaries are from 2 to 5 minutes or so in length and he begins each one with the same words….”Welcome to the Vortex where lies and falsehoods are trapped and exposed”….winding up each commentary with the crisp signature:
“This is Michael Voris.”

Tom Roeser claims the political battle in Delaware is just heating up … and has national significance

Christine O’Donnell is supposed to be a wacko, right? She made a  remark  in 1999 that she dabbled in witchcraft as a high school kid. Her opponent Chris Coons described himself as a “bearded Marxist” in a college newspaper column. Oh, says the liberal Democratic apologist Media Matters, Coons was only kidding and when he wrote that  he was just a kid.  What about O’Donnell being a kid when she talked about witches?  Uh-uh. Doesn’t work.  Burn her.

But now we get to the interesting person Chris Coons is. Wonderful pedigree.  A member of the professional class. Amhurst undergrad. Yale Law.  Yale divinity. As a young idealist he crossed the ocean to Africa to South Africa and Kenya to do “relief work.”  Relief work. That’s all the contemporary press says. Relief work for whom?   Well, relief work for the South African Council of Churches.  And digging a little farther, we find Politico reporting that his experiences in Kenya and South Africa turned Coons “to the left.”  Oh. The South African Council of Churches was at that time engaged in liberation theology under a guy named Frank Chikane who was interested in the liberating religious goal of state ownership of all businesses but Chikane was close to a guy named James Cone who was involved candidly in pro-Marxist, pro-socialist, anti-capitalist views.

This story is not over yet, friends. It has a lot more mileage to go. It turns out that Chris Coons was more than “volunteering”; he was deeply involved in abetting socialist Africans who supported liberation theology through leaders who have had tied with the McCormick Theological Seminary here and Trinity United Church of Christ in Hyde Park.  And it turns out that as a young man this same Chris Coons wrote a lot of stuff about the glories of liberation theology and socialism.

All of this means that the battle is far from over…Judith Miller and Charles Krauthammer who so cavalierly consign O’Donnell to the ash heap.  As Captain Tom Parker told the Lexington Minute Men:
“Stand you ground. Don’t fire unless fired upon. If they meant to have war, let it begin here.”
They…the liberal media…the elitist professional class…mean to have war and the battlefield is Christine O’Donnell. From what I’ve seen of the record, given Coons’ extensive involvement in black liberationist theology and socialist advocacy, the battle for the midterms 2010 may well be decided and won on the Delaware turf.

Cardinal George and the Dragon: Can Chicago’s Catholic leader smite fire-breathing critic Tom Roeser?


Explaining itself on its home page, CCI (Catholic Citizens of Illinois) observes that “more and more, Catholics in public life are becoming indistinguishable from other Americans, with growing support for abortion, divorce, euthanasia, and other societal ills. Even worse, a veil of ignorance has fallen over Catholic America, obscuring Catholic lay people’s understanding of their faith and calling into question their responsibility to serve as witnesses to Christ in the midst of human society.” CCI opposes these “ugly trends” and expects the archbishop to oppose them. Roeser makes it clear on his blog—which CCI members are quick to say the organization has nothing to do with—that he believes George has failed the test.

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.

Cardinal George doesn’t seem to appreciate Tom Roeser’s frank commentary.

Dear Mr ______,

I write to you because you are a member of the Advisory Board of Catholic Citizens of Illinois whose chairman is Mr. Thomas F. Roeser.

Mr. Roeser has taken in recent years to writing essays that are filled with factual errors and misrepresentations about events in the Archdiocese of Chicago. His writing about both clerical and lay officials of the Archdiocese are also personally insulting and filled with contempt. At times when the Pope or the bishops’ teachings or activities do not conform in every detail to his political convictions, he descends to hate mongering. I’ve included a recent example for your consideration.

Would it be possible for you to use your role as advisor to Catholic Citizens of Illinois to put an end to the hate literature produced by the Chairman? Thank you.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Francis Cardinal George OMI

Archbishop of Chicago.

Editor’s note: Cardinal George recently issued a press release stating that the USCCB (and the U.S. bishops) were not involved in actions which might, in any way, be considered political.

Tom Roeser pulls no punches writing on Obamacare, the USCCB, and Cardinal George

(Thursday March 18th issue of the Wanderer)
For many years, observers have felt that unfortunately the USCCB is a liberal left- wing political combine run by a politicized staff that is largely unsupervised by many of the bishops, and so far as Church control is concerned, it is all but rudderless.

The current president of the USCCB is Francis Cardinal George, OMI, the archbishop of Chicago. As a lifetime resident of Chicago, this reporter can tell you that writing to the cardinal in protest is a huge waste of time. George is a malleable accommodationist who doesn’t want to make waves. Though an authenticist liturgist, writer, and speaker, he is also an adroit parser ( balancing his answer with so many qualifiers it takes a linguist to interpret it — and even then the linguist may be wrong).

Long before George, the permanent Chicago chancery staff has for years – for decades predating him — reflected for the most part the hard- core left expedient policies of the Chicago Squid, 51 members of which are installed in the Obama White House.

The only way to get George’s attention and the USCCB’s is to give impetus to a drive to abolish the organization by withholding funds to the bishops. Formed initially as the National Catholic Welfare Conference, it was developed into a liberal bishopric trade association by the late Archbishop Joseph Bernardin, who could have given tactical lessons to Niccolò Machiavelli.

… In essence, the only way to effect change with the USCCB is not to write letters of supplication to prelates — letters which will be answered by the bureaucracy with boilerplate — but to cut off support for the group where it hurts, at the purse — and declare such intentions to George and/ or his soon- to- become successor as USCCB president, Bishop Gerald Kicanas of Tucson.

Going Rogue

It’s been professionally co-written for style by Lynn Vincent who is a very fine correspondent with “World” magazine but the words and flavor are definitely Palin. It covers Palin’s background very well, capturing her feelings as thoroughly as a biography can. I was especially moved about her inner thoughts as she discovered she was carrying a Down Syndrome baby and her decision to avoid abortion and go ahead with it. It was this decision that earned her the undying enmity of the feminist Left… an enmity as Charles Krauthammer points out is born of scarcely hidden jealousy since they would not have had the courage to go along with the birth and consequently berate themselves-and end up hating Palin for it.

I think the book accomplished its purpose and was astutely put together. I cheer the fact it has no index because political phonies who pick it up and riffle through to the back so see if they are mentioned will have to buy it: a wise decision.

Now I would urge Mme. Palin to do one thing that will advance her career. She should not be in the everyday business of blasting this or that media individual-be it Couric, Olbermann, Letterman-or any publication that criticizes her. She should have either one spokesman or a vehicle to do that. She trivializes herself as she did yesterday by condemning Newsweek as “sexist” for running a certain unflattering photo of her on its cover. Newsweek is a very left-of-center organ, is gradually being seen for what it is and ignored-either that or slammed by someone else.

Beyond that, I am assuredly a Palin fan and wish her well. I would wholeheartedly love to see this country governed by her and let the “mainstream” media go to hell where it belongs.

“Any church that could survive the ignominy of clergy who have disgraced it for 2,000 years must be divine.”

The Church Militant.

The late Robert Novak told me that he became a Catholic after reading the history of the Church. He decided to convert because, he says, any church that could survive the ignominy of clergy who have disgraced it for 2,000 years must be divine. Good point-and these two news items reaffirm Novak’s point.

Clerical Bubblehead No 1.

Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio of Brooklyn has recorded a robo-call… going to every registered voter in a certain city council district… praising Democratic Assemblyman Vito Lopez. It doesn’t bother Bishop DiMarzio one whit that Lopez, a Catholic, has been endorsed by NARAL (National Abortion Rights League) and has sponsored a bill to legalize same-sex marriage in New York. The reason for the prelate’s warm praise: Lopez helped derail a bill that would have lifted the statute of limitations against pedophilia priests and other clergy accused of indecent acts. The bishop says he doesn’t call upon voters to reelect Lopez… who is facing a very tight squeeze for reelection… but he just wants to thank him on behalf of the Brooklyn diocese.

Clerical Bubblehead No. 2.

Santa Fe [N.M.] Archbishop Michael Sheehan told the National Catholic Reporter last week that he supported Notre Dame’s decision to confer an honorary degree on President Obama and further cannot understand the reason for what he called the “big scene” of protests against Obama’s address and honorary degree. “We don’t want to isolate ourselves from the rest of America by our strong views on abortion and the other things,” he said. What “other things?” Probably the items listed in the 10 commandments. He exhibited his further ignorance thusly: “We’d be like the Amish, you know, kind of isolated from society, if we kept pulling back because of a single issue.”

Both deserve the Thomas Cranmer Medal… named for the Archbishop of Canterbury [1489-1556] who processed the request of Henry VIII to the pope for a divorce from Catherine of Aragon and handed the Church to Henry as his plaything, designating him sovereign head of the Church of England. Unfortunately weasel Cranmer got caught between the switches and when Mary I, a Catholic, ascended the throne she took it rather hard that wily old Cranmer had renounced his and her faith and converted to Protestantism. So she locked him up and condemned him to death. Then Cranmer experienced a most nervous, jittery re-conversion to Catholicism. Then when he found out his re-conversion to Catholicism would do him no good, he… let’s see how one says this… re-re-re-converted to Protestantism. His head was lopped off by Bloody Mary (who was no more bloody than Henry) and… believe it or not… this weak vessel Cranmer was proclaimed a martyr to Anglicanism.

To both DiMarzio and Sheehan the Cranmer medal… with our salutations.

Rosencrantz (Emanuel) and Guildenstern (Axelrod) – Obama’s comic relief?

axelrod-emanuel-jpeg

Just as the original Rosencrantz and Guildenstern were comedic in Shakespeare’s “Hamlet” and Stoppard’s play, the cast of Emanuel and Axelrod is ridiculous in real life.

Vendettas by the White House can never work. They just demean the perpetrators.

Let’s face it, Obama’s time has come and passed. By 2012 he’ll be returning to his Hyde Park mansion he bought with the help of Tony Rezko… and R & G will be sprung lose to rebuild their incomes and nurture another huckster-maybe this time a physically disabled self-professed gay Hispanic nun from Alabama who will be ripe for their collaborative promotion.

I can just hear Katie Couric exclaim when she meets their new client: Wheeeeee!
