By The Fruits, You Shall Know Them
And the sound and fury accompanying them

Cardinal George of Chicago recently made some noise concerning the heretical New Ways Ministry. Specifically, here's a bit of what he stated; (Emphasis mine)

“No one should be misled by the claim that New Ways Ministry provides an authentic interpretation of Catholic teaching and an authentic Catholic pastoral practice. Their claim to be Catholic only confuses the faithful regarding the authentic teaching and ministry of the Church with respect to persons with a homosexual inclination. Accordingly, I wish to make it clear that, like other groups that claim to be Catholic but deny central aspects of Church teaching, New Ways Ministry has no approval or recognition from the Catholic Church and that they cannot speak on behalf of the Catholic faithful in the United States.”Well isn't that special?

New Ways Ministry has countered with their listing of "gay friendly parishes nation-wide". Dozens and dozens of parishes that the Lavender Mafia staked out for their own.

The USCCB knows it, and predictably, not a damn thing will happen because of it. Think certain pastors will be replaced? For some reason, the words "snowball's chance" and "hell" come to mind. And notice that six cathedrals and five official shrines are also on the below listing. Shameful.

Oh, and another reason as to why the above proclamation by Cdl. George is essentially hot wind? Scroll down to the Sodomite-Parish listing and see just how many are within the city limits of Chicago. Never mind the other Illinois cities that fall into Cdl. George's jurisdiction.

Here's what I predict will happen now that H.E. has thrown down the gauntlet:

Nothing. He'll skulk back to the shadows and write another check to CCC and the other pro-homosexual/pro-abortion groups the USCCB is saddled up with. Bet on it.

Interesting. By quick count:
Most populous state: 32 parishes
2nd most populous state: 3 parishes

Wonder what's different between Kalifornicatia and Texas?

Why don't these people just join the Episcopal Church? Not only do they get to dress up in lace while ignoring any doctrine, but the pay is a lot better.

I'm THRILLED that the church I grew up in and received crappy false catechism at is on the list. Not surprised - it's also the same church where married ex-priests are also welcomed with open arms.

Oh yeah, when we visited Atlanta a few years back, we went to that shrine for mass. CONFIRMATION POSITIVE. It was almost like a gay-only mass.

when i first moved to Dallas (from New Orleans - thank goodness they havent infultrated louisiana)I tried many churches in hopes to find one that reflected my tradional and formal Catholic upbring and beliefs. Among these Churches, I tried the mass at Holy Trinity. I knew instantly that this was not a good church when they used electric guitars and rainsticks during the opening hymn. as suspected it got a lot worse...During the homily the priest actually preached on how homosexuals should be allowed to marry and have "relations" and that those "relations" are "good". No joke!
I got up and walked out of the church during the homily. It was disgusting and I cried with grief in my car.
Thankfully I found a wonderful TRADITIONAL Church (with Latin Masses) in Dallas and couldnt be happier.

They missed Joan of Arc in Minneapolis.

On their list there are three listed in Minneapolis -- St Stephen, St Frances Cabrini, and --to my eternal disgust -- St Joan of Arc, who has been one of my very most favorite saints since I was seventeen. There are also a couple others that I'm not sure about. Abp. Nienstedt is more orthodox than Abp. Flynn was, Deo gratias.

Why are two archdiocese of Baltimore priests—Fr. Paul K. Thomas and Fr. Joseph Muth—and a Baltimore-resident religious brother—Frank O’Donnell, SM—allowed to serve openly as board members of New Ways Ministry, an organization which openly dissents from Catholic moral teachings and seeks to convince Catholics to reject and violate these teachings? Father Thomas is, in fact, the chair of the board, and Father Muth is a current archdiocesan pastor! Just last Friday, February 5, Cardinal George publically warned that “No one should be misled by the claim that New Ways Ministry provides an authentic interpretation of Catholic teaching and an authentic Catholic pastoral practice.” It is extremely dangerous for Baltimore priests to be directly involved with this dissenting organization. What will be done to remedy this scandalous situation?

Our Lady, Queen of Peace in Virginia where I attended the worst Mass of my life.

Here in Minneapolis, St Lawrence has a 7:30 and a 9:00 Mass on Sunday night; I go to the 9:00 when I just can't get anywhere else, but I consider it a penance. I'm trying not to be pharisaical, but it just jars me.

ha! no Michigan parishes, while our southern foreign nemesis Ohio has several - just goes to show the moral superiority of Michiganders!

I was expecting this to be a much larger list! Pleasantly surprised, although, we need to take back our Churches!

Crap.. I feel so scandalized.

I came into the Church last year in one of the parshes listed for Arizona, and members of my extended family attend another on the list. Another listed is one I thought was was fairly traditional for NO.

I feel like I don't know my faith. Must I travel long distances to find the truth? I already live 30 minutes from the nearest parish.

WTF is going on in Tucson.

The listing for St. Benedict Center in WI is probably true--the good Bishop here removed the tabernacle physically from their "church" when the elderly ladies in comfortable shoes there decided they didn't like him or his "patriarchal" ways. They aren't Catholic, and no priest serves there, at all.

It's a shame--it was a lovely monastery at some point in the past.

Please don't laugh. Our family was recently going to attend our very first mass this coming Sunday, with consideration given to converting to Catholicism. The primary reason? I was tired of the homosexual agenda destroying Protestant churches and I assumed the Catholic Church was safe.

I guess I won't be attending, particularly because the church we were going to visit is on the list.

I am going to sit on my couch at home and worship God, it seems the safest place to do so...
