Spot The Fake Bishop

That’s him on the left. Ralph Napierski, a self-appointed bishop from an apparently fictional order called Corpus Dei, managed to get through a checkpoint manned by Swiss Guards but was stopped before entering the Paul VI Hall, where the cardinals were gathering. Dressed in fake bishop’s vestments, complete with a purple sash, Mr Napierski smiled to photographers as he mixed ...

Vatican To Investigate Cardinal O’Brien

O’Brien has already confessed and resigned, so one presumes the investigation will be aimed at rooting out all of his victims. The Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith, the Vatican council charged with confronting major transgressions by clergy, will likely launch an investigation into Cardinal Keith O’Brien once the new Pope is chosen. The Catholic Church in Scotland has been ...

Signorile On Cardinal Keith O’Brien

“Powerful closeted gay men, driven by an almost pathological fear of being exposed, many times engage in two often destructive activities: 1) speaking out against gays and homosexuality, or courting those who are anti-gay, in a desperate attempt to show they are not gay themselves, and 2) seeking sex through risky channels, feeling they have no choice because they’re unable ...

HomoQuotable – Peter Tatchell

“The Cardinal is a troubled man. I pity him. He needs counselling to help him deal with his decades of deception, and to come to terms with his obvious self-loathing and deeply repressed homosexual desires.  O’Brien’s statement falls well short of what we would expect from a spiritual leader. He has failed to apologize for the hatred and harm he ...

Cardinal Keith O’Brien Confesses: Yes, I Was Totally Nailing All Those Priests

“In recent days certain allegations which have been made against me have become public. Initially, their anonymous and non-specific nature led me to contest them. However, I wish to take this opportunity to admit that there have been times that my sexual conduct has fallen below the standards expected of me as a priest, archbishop and cardinal. To those I ...

NOM’s Hate March: A Cavalcade Of Crackpottery And One Catholic Drunk

NOM today published the above list of speakers scheduled for their hate march on the Supreme Court.  Hopefully there’ll be an open bar for busted drunk driver Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone and an emergency Botox station for Concernstipated Women head Penny Nance.  And we can only presume that New York state Sen. Ruben Diaz will bring along the same speaker who ...

CLAIM: Vatican Knew Five Months Ago About Cardinal O’Brien’s Gayness

The Scotsman reports an interesting claim today. The Vatican knew of allegations against Cardinal Keith O’Brien five months ago, it was claimed today. Reports said a priest lodged a complaint in October about “inappropriate behaviour” by the former Archbishop of St Andrews and Edinburgh in 2001. The priest is said to have written directly to Rome because he did not ...

Pope: The Lord Snoozed On Me

“There were moments of joy and light but also moments that were not easy. There were moments, as there were throughout the history of the Church, when the seas were rough and the wind blew against us and it seemed that the Lord was sleeping. I took this step in the full knowledge of its gravity and rarity but with ...

NOM Spokesman Jennifer Roback Morse: Gays KNOW They Are An Abomination

“I’ve noticed in my encounters with men who are same-sex attracted particularly that they have a sense of shame. Have any of you ever noticed this? I’ve noticed that a lot of the people who are very active in the movement to redefine marriage will describe that when they were teenagers that they had a sense of wrongness — of ...

Brian Brown Vs. Rep. Richard Hanna

“There’s absolutely no doubt that we are going be involved in the next election for Richard Hanna’s seat. What folks don’t understand is that we have Republicans and Democrats who support us, but if a Republican betrays the party platform, betrays his constituents, and does what Richard Hanna does, you can bet we’re going to primary him. And if a ...

Cardinal Roger Mahony: Stop Condemning Me For Shielding Child Rapists

“I can’t recall a time such as now when people tend to be so judgmental and even self-righteous, so quick to accuse, judge and condemn.  And often with scant real facts and information.  Because of news broadcasts now 24/7 there is little or no fact checking; no in-depth analysis; no context or history given.  Rather, everything gets reported as ‘news’ regardless of the ...

Catholic Vote Calls For Cardinal Mahony To Withdraw From Papal Conclave

Catholic Vote, where NOM’s “cultural affairs director” Thomas Peters occasionally blogs, today posted a call for pedophile-shielding Cardinal Roger Mahony to withdraw from the coming papal conclave.  The post notes the “credible accusations” made against British Cardinal Keith O’Brien, who yesterday resigned, and urges Mahony to follow O’Brien’s example. Tom Crowe writes: I’ll not get into the moral balancing act ...
