A few days ago, Bishop Thomas Paprocki of Springfield IL debated dissident faux-nun and New Ways dabbler Sr Jeannine Gramick on the topic of so-called "gay marriage". The event was entitled "Two Catholic Views on Marriage". Right off the bat, Bishop Paprocki corrected that misnomer, stating quite clearly that there is only one authentically Catholic view of marriage - which also happens to be the only authentic view of marriage. He also stated that his late secretary, Mary Stachowicz, was murdered by a gay activist 11 years ago for daring to suggest that he change his lifestyle. He contrasted the media's silence about her murder in comparison with that of Matthew Shepherd who was murdered at around the same time. I remember those incidents and recall noticing the disparity of media attention regarding those two crimes. Please follow this LifesiteNews link for a complete text of the bishop's remarks. Kudos to Bishop Paprocki for speaking plain truth to the face of political correctness.
Mark Birk plays the center position for the Baltimore Ravens. He went with them to the Super Bowl. He's also a Catholic and pro-life activist. Most of the Ravens attended an audience with President Obama. He opted not to join them, owing to Obama's support of Planned Parenthood and of the murder of babies. That might make a football fan out of me yet!
It's nice to have some good news for a change!
