Suggested Required Viewing for USCCB...

...on how to stand up like you've got a pair...

Strait from the Vatican's 'Best Films List' , for it's values content.

This is a favorite scene from my all-time favorite movie, On the Waterfront. Karl Malden's Father Barry, lays it down to the dockworkers about their silence when dealing with the Mob, and the share of guilt that a good man shares in when he says nothing.

Father Barry's speech - Videos - JoeTheBartender's Xanga Site

I'd love to see some more of our Churches hierarchy take their cues from 'Father Barry' and bravely stand up for our institutions of higher learning and the recent 'infiltration' it has been subjected to.

Saint Michael the Archangel...

Defend us in Battle!!!

Silly NYPD Green. Social workers aren't suppose to sacrifice themselves! They write watered-down position papers and give speeches about "LUV".

Glorified social workers run FROM the wolf... not towards it.

Social workers are the ones who told me I'm a racist because I'm white. Funny how that didn't slow me down from adopting my beautiful Mayan son from Guatemala.

Social workers need to justify their existence, and are finding that harder and harder to do. They are rather like autoworkers these days.

Oh well. God bless 'em.

His speech is hot, but it is about standing up to those who would harm the union and the common man. I think you could get a few liberal bishops fired up on that topic. The trick is to get them that fired up and vocal about BO and the evil party with their ongoing attack on the unborn.
