Les Femmes on the Vortex

I got an email yesterday from a staffer at ChurchMilitantTV giving me a heads up about using my blog post about the Al Smith Dinner in today's program. I hope you'll sign the petition asking the cardinal to rescind the invitation to Obama. And please pray for the cardinal. Most bishops don't seem to have a heart for the babies in the womb. Not really. They pay lip service to the little ones, but when it comes to dealing with politicians who champion child-killing, they let them get away with murder. God help us! Please pray for Cardinal Dolan and all the members of the hierarchy who send mixed messages about Church teaching on life. We are either really serious about it or we aren't. There is no middle ground. Yes, meet with and urge sinners to change their ways. A private meeting between the cardinal and President Obama would be great. But a public dinner where everyone is joking and laughing while babies are being murdered in real time as they speak is absolutely reprehensible. Pray for the Cardinal and all his brothers in the hierarchy who are doing so much damage to our beloved Church.


  1. Great job!

    The reference to inviting politicians whose policies would stab and suck out the brains of bishops is positively brilliant.

    You can't kid the kidders.

    Bill Donohue? I missed that.

    The goats are really starting to stand out.

  2. You and Michael Voris make quite a team--singing the same song in perfect harmony. We should see more of you two working together --you both really get your message out in a way that shows what you are made of

  3. The reference to inviting politicians whose policies would stab and suck out the brains of bishops is positively brilliant.

    I did write to Cardinal Dolan and compared him to the local people from St. Peters in Hancock, Maryland who walked 100 miles from Hancock to the Baltimore Basilica in protest of the HHS Mandate in the heat, sleeping in tents, blisters on feet etc while he is scheduling a wonderful dinner in an air condition fancy restaurant with the cause of it all.


  4. Signed it maryanne. Also told the Catholic League off. this is how Hitler got away with it. tried to reason with him. they all make me sick.


  5. Received via e-mail:

    If you are the woman who sent Michael Voris the email on what you said to Cardinal Dolan on his blog, GOD Bless you!!! Thank you, thank you!
    I am not a gifted writer and could have never put into words what was in my heart as you have done in your letter to Cardinal Dolan. What you wrote was perfect and must have been guided by the Holy Spirit.
    Thank you again and God Bless you always,

    Hamilton, Ohio
    Si vis pacem, para bellum!
    If you wish for peace prepare for war!

  6. Way to go. You spoke for all of us. The theme that has been running through my head ever since the promotion of the "Fortnight of Prayer for Religious Freedom" has been that there is no solidarity. The clergy are in such a different world. Every day we have to sit there and have a priest preach to us but do they ever ask what we think and feel? Do they even care what we think, feel and have to put up with in our lay world? They whine about their "conscience being violated"; why don't they just tell HHS to "stuff it".
    God bless,

  7. I signed it but would like to humbly submit that Obama is not the only problem. Romney is deeply a part of the problem and I'm sure he's glad we're distracted with Cdl. Dolan this week instead of the "Dump Romney as the nominee" movement.

    Bottom line, cancel the dinner or hold it and invite ONLY 100 percent prolife candidates. Then Catholics would really get the message.

  8. Absolutely right. The GOP loves to put "moderates" on the ticket who only "moderately" support abortion and the "gay" agenda. I think columnist Joe Sobran would modify his quote today. From the democrats are the evil party and the republicans are the stupid party - to the democrats are the evil party and the republicans are the evil lite party, if there is such a thing.

  9. Sign the petition. Make your voice heard.

    We have a right and obligation under Canon 212 §3 to express our opinion to Cardinal Dolan:

    "According to the knowledge, competence, and prestige which they possess, they have the right and even at times the duty to manifest to the sacred pastors their opinion on matters which pertain to the good of the Church and to make their opinion known to the rest of the Christian faithful, without prejudice to the integrity of faith and morals, with reverence toward their pastors, and attentive to common advantage and the dignity of persons."

    Obama will be allowed to speak at this dinner and that fact alone will give him credibility. He must not be given the opportunity to soft-soap Americans, or continue his anti-Catholic rhetoric.

    If Cardinal Dolan wants dialogue, let it be done outside this venue and conducted in a private setting.
    Dialogue with sinners is one thing; however, one does not break bread with an avowed enemy.

    The Cardinal would be making a very positive statement if he would rescind the Obama invitation, while still entertaining pro-life Romney. We must support our allies and undermine our enemies. Disinviting Obama would be making a strong statement that we are serious. When will our Church leaders come to the realization that we are at war with Satan and his minion Obama. We are losing by default. Where is the Cardinal's backbone?

    Abortion is always and everywhere evil. If, when aware of the Church’s stance on abortion, a Catholic votes for Obama when there is a pro-life alternative, they excommunicate themselves from Jesus and His Church. They place their souls in mortal jeopardy.

    There is more than the election at stake here. If Obama wins, abortion will continue unchecked and more souls will be lost.

    Referring to those who aspire to be bishops, St. John Chrysostom wrote, “The loss of one soul carries with it a penalty which no language can represent. For if the salvation of that soul was of such value, that the Son of God became man, and suffered so much, think how sore a punishment must the losing of it bring!” (Homily III: Acts I. 12).

  10. I'm glad the "lesser" evil of Romney was mentioned. Let's not forget Obamacare had as its prototype - Romneycare... complete with $50 co-pay abortions. And that was AFTER Mitt had his alleged pro-life epiphany. Romney also is the "father" of gay "marriage." If not for his granting licenses and ordering magistrates to perform ceremonies, Massachusetts would not have pioneered the attack on Matrimony and the economic unit of the Natural family.

    At the risk of blaspheming an old church hymn, our trek toward a National Socialism dictatorship in light of the rationalizing of "lesser" evil could be seen as SOON (Romney) and VERY SOON (Obama).

    Having a seat at the table with sinful eaters has come to mean benevolently ignoring everyone else's sin at the table with the tacit agreement that everyone ignore yours. It's otherwise known as solidarity in evil. And we rationalize there will be safety in numbers as we cultivate LACK of Fear of the Lord.

    May I also add my kudos to your exhortation of bishops and cardinals to greater empathy by coaxing them to envision their own skulls penetrated with scissors and their own brains sucked out.

  11. Is everyone being called to a John Roberts moment? Even our Cardinal?
