“(Roman Catholic Steve Bannon said) “The [Catholic] bishops have been terrible about this. You know why? Because unable to really … come to grips with the problems in the Church, they need illegal aliens, they need illegal aliens to fill the churches … They have an economic interest in unlimited immigration, unlimited illegal immigration._ (The Archbishop said in return) “Yes, in fact, he even went so far as to say that we wanted to increase our collections as a result of that. That it was a monetary, a financial decision which I think Cardinal Dolan found laughable, as I do. We budget quite a bit of money every year in order to assist people who are migrating here, people who are trying to enter into our society and be a part of the American dream.” –Source
The “American Dream?” He actually said that as a rebuke to what Bannon said? That statement alone proves Bannon was 100% correct! This Bishop claims the Church’s activities regarding how they help immigrants and many of them are in fact illegal immigrants, is not about the financial benefits. If that’s so, why mention the “American dream” which is all about becoming financially successful to the point their donations to the Catholic church will indeed go up? Continue reading
“As the U.S. Catholic bishops celebrate their 100th anniversary as an organized body, they look back at their previous century of work to help forecast what the next 100 years may bring.” –Source
I see no need to comment on the video other than to echo what the brother that sent the video to me stated. At 0:50 in the video Cardinal Dolan (ArchBishop of NY) says “it’s tough to forecast what the future is going to hold.” The only reason he says that is because as we all know Roman Catholic Popes, Cardinals, Bishops, Priests and Nuns do not read Bibles and so they do not know that Revelation 18 specifically states the forecast for the Catholic church is in fact absolute and utter destruction. And for those that do not believe me when I say they don’t read Bibles; see my Sola Scriptura page wherein they literally try to create doctrine out of thin air that declares the Bible is not to be trusted, see my words of the beast page wherein I have a section listing many quotes from the Vatican and its prelates where they declare in writing some rather hateful statements towards the Word of God as well as anyone that reads it, who they proclaim should “be destroyed.” Continue reading
A pastoral letter from the Roman Catholic Church bishops has urged all Zimbabweans, especially young people, to register and vote in their numbers in the upcoming 2018 polls, seen as a watershed election.
Reading a letter on behalf of the bishops to congregants after a church service at St. James Catholic church in Emerald Hill, Harare on Aug. 20, Father Rungano Muchineripi said it is a sin not to vote.
“Men and women of God are getting tired of praying for issues to do with politics and the suffering of people due to bad governance, so it is high time Christians put their efforts together in registering to vote, choosing a people oriented government which is not evil, AllAfrica.com reported.

Pope Francis met on Thursday with a delegation from a Nigerian diocese which for the last four and a half years has refused to recognize the bishop who was appointed as its shepherd.
He demanded that the clerics of the Diocese of Ahiara accept the bishop appointment that has been made, or face suspension and loss of office.
Fr. Peter Okpaleke was appointed Bishop of Ahiara in December 2012 by Benedict XVI. But the Ahiara diocese is dominated by the Mbaise ethnic group. As an outsider from the nearby Diocese of Awka, Fr. Okpaleke was rejected by much of Ahiara’s clergy and laity, who wanted one of their own to be appointed bishop over them. Continue reading
“Marie Collins, an Irish survivor of clerical sex abuse, resigned Wednesday from Pope Francis’s child protection panel, accusing senior Vatican officials of “shameful” blocking of reforms approved by the pontiff. Collins’s departure and her depiction of high-level obstruction of change is an embarrassing blow to the pontiff’s attempts to demonstrate that the Church is effectively combating a scourge that has profoundly damaged its image over recent decades. The 70-year-old, who was raped by a hospital chaplain at 13, explained her decision in an article for the National Catholic Reporter (NCR). As a survivor I have watched events unfold with dismay,” she wrote. Her resignation happened days after Francis came under fire for reducing sanctions imposed on some paedophile priests in line with his desire for the Church to be more merciful across a range of issues.” –Source
ECHO.. Echo.. echo..
Never seems to end does it? And what’s truly shocking is, even though this woman, a devout Roman Catholic, sees how her Vatican priests are blocking every attempt by her to do as she was hired to do, and that was to find a way to protect the children from the child molesters in her church leadership, she not only walks off the job proving the Vatican has no real interest in stopping their flesh crazed pedophile recreational past time, she has no intention of leaving her beloved church. Now keep in mind, she wasn’t only hired to help the Vatican figure out a way to help protect the children from the child rapists in the priesthood, she herself was a victim of sexual abuse by this very same priesthood. And all this comes to light just four days after the Pope himself quietly trims sanctions for sex abusers in his priesthood that are seeking mercy for the crimes they commit against the children?! (Not surprised since the last 2 Popes did the same thing!) Continue reading
One of the most well-known Jesuit priests in the United States tweeted his support of boys using the girls’ bathroom and vice versa.
Father James Martin is the editor-at-large of America magazine and has a large social media presence. In November, he accepted an award from New Ways Ministry, a dissident group that has been condemned by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and the U.S. Catholic bishops. During his lengthy acceptance speech, he said the Church should embrace homosexuality’s “special gifts.” Continue reading
Seven percent of Catholic priests in Australia between 1950 and 2010 allegedly sexually abused children, according to data provided by church authorities in a major investigation.
Australia is the latest country to unearth widespread, decades-long child abuse by Catholic Church authorities.
The findings were released by The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, which launched in 2013 to look at child abuse in places like schools and government organizations.
It started surveying church authorities shortly afterward, in response to the high number of survivors who told the commission they were abused at a Catholic Church institution. Continue reading
“Pope Francis told participants at a Vatican gathering on religious life that the exodus of clergy and religious men and women is weakening the Church and must be addressed. “We are dealing with a ‘hemorrhage’ that is debilitating to consecrated life and the very life of the Church,” the Pope said, noting that the number of desertions from the consecrated life is “worrisome.” –Source
And how do you think Satan and the man of sin will fix this problem? Looking back just 10 decades it’s easy to see what will happen next. Exactly 100 years ago a demon calling itself “the virgin Mary” appeared in a grotto in Portugal to 3 young children. Why children? Satan knows if he appeared as a woman claiming to be Mary the mother of Jesus to adults they may look into his claims by actually opening a Bible to see it’s all a lie. Basic reality is, how many patriarchs and prophets in the Word of God ever had vision as children that was to be proclaimed to all the world? God would never send a little child to do such a work without sufficient training. Even Samuel sat under the tutorage of Ely long before going forth as a prophet of the Lord. Continue reading
MANILA — The Catholic Church is “full of sh**t,” according to President Duterte who ramped up his attacks against priests and bishops in the Philippines, on Tuesday, by accusing them of corruption, womanizing and other excesses.
In a speech peppered with profanities in reference to the church leaders, Mr. Duterte encouraged his audience composed of families of slain Special Action Forces to read the book “Altar of Secrets” by the late journalist Aries Rufo to know the sins of the church officials. Continue reading
A parish priest in the south of Italy enraged parishioners by dressing the Virgin Mary in a Muslim burqa for his church’s Christmas Nativity scene, adding a boatful of refugees and a rainbow flag in place of the star of Bethlehem.
The pastor of the parish of Saints Joachim and Anne in Potenza, Father Franco Corbo, found himself face to face with an angry mob of demonstrators gathered outside his church on Wednesday to protest his provocative display.
“Don Franco,” as the priest is known, said that he had the special crèche scene constructed “in the name of dialogue among religions” and that his message had been “misinterpreted.” Continue reading
