Father Euteneuer Says What Needs To Be Said
Helmet tip to Former Altar Boy

Here's some from the most recent Human Life International e-Newsletter; (No emphasis on my part needed) Shake Down the Thunder on Notre Dame

Let's be honest: all the hand wringing and justification for Fr. Jenkins' decision is just fluff. Despite the unprecedented tour de force of close to fifty US bishops objecting to this travesty, Fr. Jenkins's claim that his decision is "consistent" with the bishops' 2004 directive on speakers at Catholic colleges - simply because Barack Obama is not a Catholic - is, well, absurd on its face. No person in his right mind buys it.

And that's the point - Notre Dame leadership is not "in its right mind" any more. The ones who made or endorsed this decision are not thinking with the mind of the Church let alone the Mind of Christ. This doesn't just apply to Fr. Jenkins either. It also applies to his superior, Fr. Hugh Cleary, who has an obligation to demand Jenkins' immediate resignation from his post to end this scandal but who chose instead to make a sappy, glowing, politically-correct statement which dares call this hurtful fiasco a "teachable moment."

No, Father Cleary - a "teachable moment" would be your removing Fr. Jenkins from office to show the world that the Church really means what she says in calling abortion an "abominable crime." (Vatican II, Gaudium et Spes, 51)

As far as I am concerned, a thunder of judgment has just been shaken down on Notre Dame, its Board of Directors and any faculty, students or alumni who endorse the decision to bring Barack Obama to Notre Dame's campus to sully Our Lady's good name and our deepest loyalties.

Sincerely,





Rev. Thomas J. Euteneuer,
President, Human Life International

This preist needs to break out of his shell and tell us exactly what is on his mind.

He is great. No mincing words or fluff found in so many Catholic documents put out to show tolerance and love while the flock is heading off the cliff. If parents showed their kids the type of love the USCCB does for the children God has placed in their care, they would have been taken to court long ago for abuse.

Greta,
Fr. Tom is definitely a Catholic Caveman (and a former Martine, besides!)

Fr. Tom is an exorcist as well. He knows what it is to be on the front lines of fighting Satan.
