UTAH - Not Just The Home Of America's Most Powerful Weirdos Anymore
Also home to one badass priest!

The eternally cuddly Fr Richsteig drops yet another warm and fuzzy 500 lb canister of Holy Fire on those who need it most.

Aptly titled "Over My Dead, Burnt And Bleeding Body" here's just some of Father Richtsteig's sage wisdom;

This would be my reply if I were ever asked to send catechists to the annual Los Angeles Religious Education Congress held in Anaheim. Not only does it educate for liturgical non-sense (check the web in early March for picture of the latest liturgical hippie jam bands and accompanying Dancing Daughters of Penelope), but, and far more importantly, the speakers and topics are almost all atrocious.

Take a look at the speaker list.
We have:
~ Scott Appleby of Notre Dame, a perennial Call to Action shill;
~ Fr. Gerald Coleman, former rector of St. Patrick's Seminary, and noted dissenter from the Church's teaching of homosexual behavior;
~Another failed seminary rector Donald Cozzens;
~ Fr. Michael Crosby, Franciscan dissenter from Milwaukee;
~ The comedy team of Sr. Fran Ferder and Fr. John Heagle (I was once present at a conference where they decried the evils of hetero-sexism and suggested that we talk to genitalia);
~ Goddess worshipper and foe of recording devices Edwina Gateley;
~ Musical vandals Haaugen and Haas;
~ Fr. Brian Massingale, supporter of Gay Marriage (must not make fun of name, must not make fun of name);
~ Timothy Radicliffe OP (and NUT) former Dominican Master General and heretic;
~ and Fr. Ronald Rollheiser, writer of vacuous columns for Catholic papers.

Those are just the ones whose names I recognized. The question is why are these people being invited and paid to educate catechists? Obviously, because the powers that be want to propagate their views.

Breach of Faith
On behalf of the Seattle Archdiocese, a nun and a priest teamed up to evaluate or counsel priests accused of sex abuse. They also counseled victims, one of whom is suing over this conflict of interest.
Sister Fran Ferder and the Rev. John Heagle practiced as internationally known therapists while advancing what for the church were subversive ideas about sexuality and church hierarchy. They were at the center of the Seattle Archdiocese's response to a nascent sexual-abuse crisis that was beginning to grip the Catholic Church nationwide.

So are these two an ordained priest and woman Religious dedicated to the salvation of souls through Jesus Christ... or a couple of glorified social workers?

On second thought, don't bother responding. I just answered my own question.
