Report Card # 7 on Bill Press’s Book
How the Republicans Stole Christmas Sat. Dec. 31, 2005
Chapter 1 – Separation of Church and State (cont’d)
“In March 2005, Senator Rick Santorium (R-Pa.) organized a course on Catholic doctrine for Republican Catholic members of Congress. Classes were taught by a priest in Santorium’s capitol office.” 36
This has been a spiritually uplifting week not only for Catholic Christians but for all Christians. On Sunday, we had the birth of Jesus, then St. Stephen, the first Martyr, St. John the Evangelist, the Feast of the Holy Innocents, St. Thomas Becket, the Feast of the Holy Family, and today St. Sylvester. What is this week for the Catholic-In Name-Only- Politician (CINOP) and his supporters? How was the mindset of these Catholics formed? Why are they blind to Life as the first inalienable right and to Pope John Paul’s Gospel of Life? We see few Baptist/ Evangelicals-In-Name-Only Politicians but many CINOP’S.
Patrick J. Reilly made a key point in his talk at the Cardinal Mindszenty Society Conference on Apr. 9th, 2005 at Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois, titled, Fighting the Catholic Campus Wars: A Success Story. “What are the greatest challenges that are facing the Catholic Church? Shortage of Priests, lack of faith, no instruction, lack of trust in God; I am also thinking of the priest-sex scandal, the Terri Schiavo case, abortion, euthanasia and the growth of the movement to euthanasia, and homosexual activism. I want to make a point up front that every single one of these issues both the roots of the problem and the solutions are to be found largely in Catholic Higher Education. If we can reform Catholic Higher Education we can significantly address every one of these issues.”
All of the above should have been straightened out by the staff of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops years ago. There is also something very arrogant and egotistical about dissent literature like the National Catholic Reporter, America, and Commonweal. We need a breadth of fresh air with Catholic readings like National Catholic Register, First Things, Lay Witness, Inside the Vatican, Catholic World Report, Homiletic & Pastoral Review and New Oxford Review.
One would expect a Catholic to be for traditional America. But the first chapter of Bill’s book is like a primer for the ACLU. Of course, we have all kinds of Catholics in the halls of Congress and the State legislatures. But if they are for adultery, fornication and pornography, and the culture of death, we need to speak out. For the fellow travelers of Bill, we have a question. What is the difference between the secular liberal ideology of the ACLU in America and the neo-pagan racist ideology of Hitler and the atheistic class warfare ideology of Stalin? All three have a superior social welfare program which have duped Catholic voters in Europe and today many in America.
This past week, Fox News had a report on the Catholic Church in Holland. One hundred years ago, 95% of Catholics went to Mass on Sunday, today it is only 8 %. The ex-Catholics there are now promoting all aspects of the culture of death and a suicide pill. The pro-life movement has the will to win for traditional America and you, Bill Press, are in the way as a Pied Piper Trojan horse Catholic for the Culture of Death!
Good Health and a Blessed and Joyful New Year,
