Court Allows San Fran City Resolution Condemning Catholicism as ‘Insulting,’ ‘Hateful’

So, the government has decided that Catholic doctrine is wrong…what’s next?

The Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has shakily allowed to stand a resolution by the city government of San Francisco that lambasted the Vatican as “meddl[ing]” and “insult[ing]” for reaffirming its teaching against homosexual adoption, and which urged Church officials to disobey the Magisterium.

The Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights and two San Francisco Catholic citizens, represented by Robert Muise of the Thomas More Law Center, filed suit against the city, claiming that the resolution violated the Establishment Clause of the U.S. Constitution. A federal judge in December 2006 dismissed the case, stating that the Vatican had “provoked this debate” by issuing the statement.

    I bet the Supreme Court would not call the Protestants, Muslims, atheists, or other non-Catholics “hateful”, and to call people “hateful” for speaking the truth defies words. The pro-homosexual archbishop, George Niederauer, is of no help either. Let’s pray his successor is everything he is not.

    What’s next, will the court call all moral goodness “insulting”. The homosexuals need to abandon that lifestyle….fast!

    As much as the homosexuals lack qualms calling others “hateful”, they are good at dishing out what they won’t take. In fact, 14 years ago, i read in a local weekly newspaper about the cith of West Hollywood, often seen, and for good reason, as the homosexual capital of the Los Angeles metroplex. Some homosexuals were less than happy an increased number of non-homosexuals were moving to the city. More recently, when a ballot measure to prevent same-sex “marraige” in California was about to be voted on, homosexuals(and their supporters) tore signs supporting the measure, among other things. I won’t mention other ways in which homosexuaks have made life a potential nightmare for who isn’t one of them(or at least coddles them).

      Not to dnimiish the high crimes of the RCC but please examine the Jehovah’s Witnesses who go door to door and come on our property. Jehovah’s Witnesses pedophiles.Many court documents and news events prove that Jehovah’s Witnesses require two witnesses when a child comes forward with allegations of molestation within the congregation. Such allegations have customarily been treated as sins instead of crimes and are only reported to authorities when it is required to do so by law, (which varies by state). It has also been shown that child molesters within the organization usually have not been identified to the congregation members or the public at large.These people engage in a door to door ministry, possibly exposing children to pedophiles. Although the Watchtower Bible Tract Society claims that known pedophiles are accompanied by a non-pedophile in such work, there is no law stating that such a practice must be followed. The Watchtower corporation has paid out millions in settlement money already.–Danny Haszard abuse victimdannyhaszard(dot)com

        Years ago, I read in a Catholic newspaper(though the details allude me) about how a Jehovah’s Witness went ballistic when one of her charges looked like she might accept the fact that the Catholic Church is God’s true church(the gentleman she tried to evangelize was Catholic, but he was too well-versed in his faith to let her go down the wrong path, with or without a fight).

    Too many homosexuals act like they have a sense of entitlement. Last night, I had the misfortune of crossing paths with TWO lesbian couples, and they acted like I was wrong for having a problem with their lewd acts in public.

    Kathleen, you wrote a superb article! Too bad there was something to write about in the first place. However, I’m glad an appeal is being filed. Will you keep us updated?

    One prelate, though I’m happy to announce he doesn’t have a lock on such courage, who does not hesitate to speak out against the homosexuals is Minneapolis-Saint Paul Archbishop John Neinstedt. He seems to be everything Archbishop Niederauer is not; in fact, I wrote to our late nuncio, Archbishop Pietro Sambi, over a year and a half ago, recommending Archbishop Neinstedt as a potential succesor to Cardinal Francis George, who is scheduled to submit his resignation two months from today because he turns 75 that day, as archbishop of Chicago.

    What I’m about to say would be laughable if it wasn’t so tragic. Many proponents of same-sex “marriage” compare their situation with those who fought for miscegination(which is mixed-race marriage), which is utter nonsense. There is NOTHING immoral with miscegination(in fact, a female can, ethnically speaking, be nothing like me and I’ll still marry her, provided she’s not wanting where it counts), and it’s far from immoral for people to marry outside their races. It is, however, immoral, for people to fall in love with members of their own sex(in fact, falling in “love” with a member of one’s own sex is nothing short of lust)!

    As much as Archbishop Niederauer is rotten in my book(he makes Cardinal Mahony look good; the former’s having given drag queens dressed as nuns, and a history of coddling homosexuals dating back to when he was known as Father Niederauer prove it beyond an ability to disprove it), I have to admit, 2 years ago late next month, I wrote to our late nuncio, Archbishop Sambi, and recommended to take his place as San Francisco’s prelate two bishops that are everything he is not; Phoenix’s Bishop Thomas Olmsted and Colorado Springs’ Bishop Michael Sheridan. Both are allies of Latin Mass(the FSSP is in BOTH dioceses), and will NOT hesitate to tell wrongdoers to turn themselves around!

    Two years ago late next month, I wrote to our late nuncio, Archbishop Pietro Sambi to recommend men to lead various sees across the country. I recommended Bishops Thomas Olmsted of Phoenix and Michael Sheridan of Colorado Springs as potential successors to San Francisco Archbishop George Niederauer. Both are everything he is not. They stand up against homosexual acts to the point of denying Communion to those who violate Church teaching on the matter. Both let the FSSP into their respective sees. Both stand up for the unborn, etc.

    I just found out about about Father Guarnizo, and what the Washington Archdiocese has done is BLASPHEMOUS! In fact, they who removed Father Guarnizo from active ministry should be laicized! It’s like what Bishop Ochoa did to Father Rodriguez in El Paso all over again!

    Today, I got some disturbing news. I found out that boxer Manny Paquiou(Ihope I spelled his name right) has been banned from Los Angeles shopping center “The Grove” for telling the truth about homosexual acts(Grove powers-that-be called his words “hateful”; surprise, surprise). It’s really going to pain me to have to stop going there myself; true, the degree of frequency I’ve gone there has been sporadic, but I’ve made some good friends there(there’s even a gal that works at Anthropologie that I have a crush on; she “dresses with dignity”, she is 6’1″ barefoot, though every time I see her, she has on pumps; tasteful pumps, she is a nice lady, and I hate to have to stop going to “The Grove”, no matter how infrequent my trips up to this point have been, but if the powers-that-be don’t reverse their decision, I will boycott the place, and I will get others to do the same). Of course, had it been a homosexual making anti-heterosexual comments(and they hate us as much as they accuse us of hating them), they’d get a free pass(heck, they don’t put up with ANY criticism of their lifestyle; over a decade ago, I read in the “National Catholic Register” that a Chicago man killed a woman because she admonished him for leading a sinful lifestyle; since I live in Los Angeles, the Catholic press is why I know about. It was also brought up on EWTN’s “The Abundant Life”, so it’s clear the only way non-Chicagoans found out was through the Catholic press). Colleen, I’d appreciate it if you pray for people to get their acts together…..PLEASE!

    Colleen, I have some good news and bad news. The bad news is Bishops Thomas Olmsted of Phoenix and Michael Sheridan of Colorado Springs, both of whom I recommended as potential candidates to succeed Archbishop George Niederaurer as San Francisco’s prelate, both got passed over. The good news is,Oakland Bishop Salvatore Cordileone, whom I recommended as a potential candidate as Dever archbishop(only to get passed over for Fargo Bishop Samuel Aquila), is San Francisco’s new archbishop. If what I know about him means anything, he will be San Francisco’s first good prelate in decades(everyone from Quinn to Niederaurer, if that recent, has stunk, if that’s a strong enough word to describe these prelates; they have done everything from coddle the homosexuals to supress the presence of Latin Mass). Despite the fact that I live in Los Angeles and have yet to visit Northern California, I will write to Archbishop Cordileone to recommend a dress code for San Francisco; I will certainly suggest he have a skirts-only policy for females. I’ll keep you posted.

    Today, Salvatore Cordileone is to be installed today as San Francisco’s archbishop. However, the fact that he stands up for Church teaching has the Episcopal “Church” steaming mad(I found out on Father Zuhldorff’s blog that the Episcopal “Bishop” had the nerve to call Catholic Church teaching on homosexuals “oppressive”, but what would you expect from an Episcopalian and/or a San Franciscan? That city is a present day Sodom and Gamorrah).
