RCIA (now OCIA) is a total joke in the Catholic Church. Clown time. Your example takes the cake. Half of RCIA “conversions” are insincere. One year after baptism, they aren’t coming to Mass.

The problem with Transexualism is that is based on the lie that we are not sexual people. We are. God created us men and women.

What’s your axe to grind with LifeTeen? They promote Adoration and their catechetical materials are solidly Catholic.

Do they teach how to repair freeway overpasses damaged by a raging inferno? That skill set is needed in Los Angeles right now.

In 2009, I was thrilled when Bishop Olmsted ousted the liberal, LGBT-friendly Dominican Order from ASU campus ministry— this situation needed to happen, for decades.

What if the new bishop of Tyler is Bishop James Martin, S.J.? I think that would matter to the seminarians.

I do see if a seminarian feels that they could not promise obedience to that new bishop, it might be something he should pray over.

Yes, our “brother” governor is endangering pharmacists. But, at least he’s protecting the Communist Chinese dictator and got rid of the homeless for the occasion of a meeting in San Francisco with our other “brother” Joe.

I don’t know who you know. (How many graduates do you know, who make up “everyone?”) My wife and I and our three adult children (and two of their spouses) who are Franciscan alumni all have had jobs we could not have gotten without that education.

I laughed until I was sick recently, when Jesuit Fr. James Martin exclaimed publicly, that he wished he could “canonize” Sr. Jeannie Grammick. She recently had a big meeting with the Pope, and received the Pope’s praise and honor for her “wonderful work” with New Ways Ministry. She noted that she was deeply inspired by Fr. Paul Shanley– a notorious, horrific serial clerical child rapist– to become an activist, to help the “poor, downtrodden LGBTs.” She said that Shanley, who “gave her the inspiration for her ministry,” was her “best friend,” at that time.

Re: Sister Grammick and Fr. Paul Shanley-this is not a defense but a reminder. Narcissistic abusers groom their character witnesses and flying monkeys as thoroughly as they groom their victims.
