A Lone Voice Crying Out In The Wilderness
In the Archdiocese of SAN FRANCISCO of all places!!??

Interesting story from The California Catholic Daily. Believe it or not, this is from a parish bulletin. Here's a taste;

News from the Trenches
(Reprinted from today's Weekly Bulletin of Saints Peter & Paul parish, San Francisco)
By Fr. John Malloy, pastor

There is a “wave of theological and moral dissent that is in danger of overtaking the Church in America. The dissenters are systematically trying to subvert and ‘reconstruct’ the very foundations of our Catholic faith.”

Karl Keating (“Catholic Answers”) has written many times to warn people about Call to Action, Women’s Ordination Conference, Catholics for a Free Choice, CORPUS (the National Association for a Married Priesthood), Dignity, FutureChurch, and many other self-proclaimed “change agents” present in the Church today. They all have a similar agenda: to dismantle the existing structure and essence of the Catholic Church and then re-make it in their own image and likeness.

They desperately want the Church to change its “rigid” stand on such issues as abortion, contraception, divorce, homosexual activity, women's ordination, and married priests. It’s almost hard to believe that these people are serious. But they are. For many of us, it may even be hard to believe that they pose a serious threat to the Church. But they certainly do. Did you know that at a recent Call to Action national convention (in Milwaukee, Wisconsin), a couple of hundred priests were in attendance? It’s true. Also present were many radical feminist nuns, religious educators, chancery officials, liturgists, theologians, and various Church bureaucrats. Altogether, about 4,000 to 5,000 people were in attendance.

It is a powerful force within the Church today! And they have a clear, systematic agenda: to tear down the Church as we know it and then re-build it into a different “New Church” structured around their own agenda.

Quite a bit different from what I posted not too long ago concerning Holy Redeemer Catholic(?) Parish, who happened to be active participats in the SF Gay Pride Parade, huh?

Wow, let's keep an eye on this fellow shall we? He seems a likely candidate for the "Altier treatment".

Its a good thing that Christ promised that the gates of Hell shall not prevail against the Church.

I think Fr. John Malloy has just earned my 'hero of the day' award! Thank the Lord for priests like him!

The Altier Treatment:

Either that or a psych ward...for his own good, naturally.
