Will Archbishop Dolan Feature Brokeback Mountain at the Fulton Sheen Center?

What kind of elite glitteratti will Cardinal Dolan entertain at the new center? Maybe Michelle and Barack will fly up to the Big Apple in Air Force 1 to attend. What a photo op: a big poster of Fulton Sheen on one side and a laughing Cardinal Dolan on the other. Gives me goosebumps.

Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen Center for Art and Culture

Here's what the diocese says about the center and events to be held:
the center includes an exhibition area; several conference rooms that are able to be opened into one large conference room; a “black box” theatre, which holds 93 people and can be configured to suit the particular needs of any event; a theatre that holds 250 people; and—of course—a chapel for those who visit the center and want to sit, converse, and pray with the Lord....
Additionally, the center will rent space to outside organizations for events. Some of these will likely have religious overtones and others will not. But, there are bills to be paid, and we don’t want the center to be a financial drain on the archdiocese. However, no event will present a message unacceptable to the Church, and all programs will have the purpose of bringing the true, the good, and the beautiful to our community.
Well, we all know that letting gay activists march in the St. Patrick's Day Parade fits Cardinal Dolan's idea of what is acceptable to the Church. And I expect gay activists will be asking to present The Laramie Project, the gay propaganda play that promotes the lie that Matthew Shepherd was killed because he was gay. It's been a great propaganda tool to advance the gay agenda. And who cares if it's a myth? To read the real story go here. It's a tragedy that Matthew Shepherd or anyone else is murdered, but the fact is when you lead a dangerous lifestyle you increase your risk of a violent death, a wasted one at that. Be willing to die for something, but let it be something worth dying for -- like the martyrs of the Church.

As for events at the Fulton Sheen Center, does anyone trust Cardinal "Bravo's" interpretation of what is "unacceptable to the Church?"

Wow, you have really gone off the deep end in your criticism of Cardinal Dolan, accusing him of what you think he might do. Is nothing off limits for you? Did you ever hear of "judge not lest you be judged? (Matt 7:1-3). "For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged."

Oh my goodness. Are you judging me? Your prejudice is showing.

As for Cardinal Dolan, the past is prologue to the future and we already have a long track record of his scandalous actions.

Jesus Christ saw a long track record of Mary Magdalene, Zaccheus, St Peter, the thief on the cross, and on and on - none of that played any part in the mercy he showed them. A priest I know has a favorite saying, "I'm not God, you're not God, thank God for that,". If God was to judge us the way you judge Cardinal Dolan, none of us would stand a chance. What good would confession be. We have already shown our track record.

Judging you? I am merely looking at your harsh and judgmental words concerning a Cardinal and commenting on that.

Mary Ann Kreitzer said...

Yup, and they all repented. Haven't seen much of that from Cardinal Dolan.

As for your "harsh and judgmental words" about me, well, you're never judging. LOL! Like I said, you're prejudice is showing.

And since it's my blog I get the last word. Adios!

You may not publish this comment but I will say iit anyway. You banish me from your blog because you don't like what I write. The reason all those whom I pointed to as examples came to repentance is because they experienced the mercy of Jesus Christ. All you show toward Cardinal Dolan and anyone who disagrees with you is disdain and condemnation. That is Christian? Think again.

No judgment there, eh?

3 points about this "who am I to judge" stuff used to attack criticism.
The first is what we all heard Sept 7 at Sunday Mass.
Thus says the LORD:
You, son of man, I have appointed watchman for the house of Israel;
when you hear me say anything, you shall warn them for me.
If I tell the wicked, “O wicked one, you shall surely die, ”
and you do not speak out to dissuade the wicked from his way,
the wicked shall die for his guilt,
but I will hold you responsible for his death.
But if you warn the wicked,
trying to turn him from his way,
and he refuses to turn from his way,
he shall die for his guilt,
but you shall save yourself.

Should we ignore warning the wicked and show them "mercy" instead even while we ourselves will be judged for not warning. Personally I’m too old and too close to God’s judgment for that.
Secondly, if we are sensitive about being judged perhaps it is our own muted conscience that is nagging at us. (We used to say that our conscience is bothering us.) Nowadays it comes down to: don't judge me or you are judging or who are you to judge. And it’s left at that.
Thirdly, not all judgments made are critical. Will you say: no judgement please when I offer you a compliment? Are you incapable of defending your willful choices or actions. A judgement by me can’t do anything to anybody. I guess I’m saying. Thank me for complimentary judgements. Fight back against wrong judgments. And let truth at least have a chance to win out.
