Earlier today Church Militant TV put out a call for action. Someone within the Archdiocese of Los Angeles leased out some archdiocesan buildings to pro-abortion activists so that they could have a conference that featured Planned Parenthood.
As you can see from the linked article, CMTV produced a fairly detailed analysis of the planned conference and of all the key players involved. They closed their post with a plea to contact Archbishop Gomez and ask him to have the event ejected from Church property. I had planned to have this post be another vehicle to spread the word and to encourage my readers to participate in this effort. Happily I can now amend the purpose of this post.
The update at the top of the CMTV link was put there within the past few hours. Apparently enough faithful Catholics raised the alarm at the LA chancery so that they canceled the event. This incident is evidence that we faithful Catholics do make a difference when we pray and act for God's honor and the upholding of Holy Mother Church. Each and every phone call and email to that archdiocese played a critical role in preventing the planned sacrilege.
When events like this happen in the future (and they will), please take heart and act. Make that phone call. Send that email. Boycott that collection for progressive causes. Picket that pro-abort who speaks on Church property, or that enemy of marriage who is honored by Church officials. Let the Church authorities know you will act. Sometimes the specter of your planned action may cause the troublesome event to be cancelled. Even if the event goes on, your action will at least make the recalcitrant officials uncomfortable in their sin.
Never sit back in indifference and apathy, believing that your voice and actions and prayers won't matter in the midst of so much evil. It will, even if it may not be evident at all times.
