Last Friday we learned that Victoria Kennedy, widow of the late Ted Kennedy and herself a rabid abortion proponent, was uninvited from Anna Maria College in Paxton, Massachusetts. This was done at the insistence of the local bishop, Robert J. McManus. He correctly noted that her positions on abortion, homosexuality and other life issues were in disobedience to Church teaching. The school administration whined and pouted about it, but in the end they heeded their bishop.
In Texas, a Catholic pro-abortion state representative, Dawnna Dukes sniveled to a Planned Parenthood rally that "a local bishop" had disinvited her from speaking at her home parish of Holy Cross Catholic Church in Austin. Below is a recording of the talk - where she claims that her great-grandmother founded the Church (at the 1:06 mark). Then she reveals that the Church wouldn't allow her to speak because she supports contraceptives (2:50)! The horror! The shock! Imagine that! The Church is standing for its moral teachings! And guess what? She is mad! Doesn't that just make you want to shake in your boots? ROFLOL! Ms. Dukes, get used to it, and get over yourself!
News of these bishops standing up to the politically-influential pro-aborts and standing up for Church teaching is a breath of fresh air indeed! Hopefully that breeze will soon blow through the Archdiocese of Washington!
