Lifeteen Founder Arrested
Gee, I wonder what he was busted for...

Lifeteen, the wonderful "Catholic" organization that brought us the Rock 'N Roll Mass, has witness it's founder, Msgr. Dale Fushek, dragged off to county lock-up for... you guessed... several charges of assault, indecent exposure, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Good golly, Miss Molly. I for one, never saw THIS coming. Did you? One more interesting tid-bit, he was also the vicar general of the Phoenix diocese under Bishop Thomas "I can't differentiate between Mexicans and dogs" O'Brien.

Let me give you some examples of the "fruits" of Lifeteen...

THIS is how "CATHOLIC" kids conduct themselves? And to think that "Catholic" parents
allowed this. Hey St Joseph's Parish in Long Beach, California... is THIS how you teach teens to be decent Catholics? Thanks, but NO THANKS!
A perfect example of what the "New Church" is doing to our Catholic Youth. Examples of "Life Teen", supposedly "Leading Teens To Christ". How exactly? By looking like sluts and satanists? Is a woman that is carrying a child now a "costume"? So much for the beauty of a woman and her unborn child. That is now something to snicker at... well, at "Life Teen" anyhow.
Then we see what's happening at St. Therese's Parish in Pheonix, AZ at a (get ready for this) All Saints Day Dance. That's right... All Saints Day. The kids were suppose to dress up as their favorite role model, such as a Saint, a certain priest or nun, something along those lines. Obviously, girls in pull over shirts throwing their legs over each other is considered a role model.
But my personal favorite is the young lady here dressed up as a priest, and a young man dressed up as a nun. By the way... love the rainbow. Looks more like a Gay Pride Parade than a Catholic childrens dance.

If you had only posted the pictures I wouldn't have been sure as to weather they were from some Fundamnentalist Catholic Bashing session, a witchcraft class, or an Episcopal confrence.

The way the Church has been going for the past forty years.... looks like the answer is yes to all three.

Remember what Pope Paul said about the Smoke of Satan. And ever so important... the warnings from Our Lady of Akita

Thanks for exposing this. The adults who allow such travesties should be tying millstones around their necks...

I pray that Bishop Olmsted and other bishops suppress Life Teen. If Pope Benedict XVI can reign in the Franciscans at Assisi, this should be easy.

Life Teen has bred thousands of non-Catholics. These young people have experienced the banal "feel good theology" of Protestant, non-denominational ecclesiastical communities under the guise of post-modern Catholicism, which in fact is heretical. There is nothing Catholic about "put your hands in the air, like you just don't care" Fushekesque religion. Catholic, no. Heretical, yes. Pagan, quiet possibly.

Pray. Pray. Pray.

I can't believe anyone still thinks that Ratzinger will do anything about this... didn't anyone pay attention to the rediculous non-Catholic WYD 2005???? Wake up people

As a member of LIFE TEEN for 5 years, I find it sad to hear my fellow-Catholics bad-mouthing a program that has awakened a love for Catholicism in my heart. Prior to walking to that first LIFE TEEN Family mass, I had no desire whatsoever to be Catholic...I thought it was a bland, boring, banal religion with no feeling and no relevance; however, when I left that Church, something changed. A fire was lit in my heart, a fire that motivated me to read the Bible, study the Catechism and the writings of the early Church fathers, and become a daily mass attendee. That fire has also driven me into a deep discernment of the priesthood, into the service of the poor and of my community. I am by no means perfect, nor am I the Catholic that I should be. But I know that I am a better man because of the positive-influence of the men and women who work for the Church--and, vicariously, for God--under the program of LIFE TEEN.

That said, I recognize and understand the view that LIFE TEEN's brand of worship and theology may be soft-core in comparison to the more-traditional theology that you and others are used to. But, realize something: LIFE TEEN is not the end-all-be-all of Catholicism. It is a door, a gateway that interests teens and young-adults in Catholicism and, hopefully, encourages them to dive deeper into theirs and our faith. If there's a problem with Eucharistic-centered worship that introduces teens to the love of God and allows them to enter into a deeper relationship with Him, I guess LIFE TEEN is guilty as charged.

Your brother in Christ,
