Although he has makes no secret of his disdain for the Church's teachings on life and morals, Chris Matthews was invited to Blessed Sacrament yesterday to sign and sell his latest book. Our numerous calls, emails, etc to the parish and to the chancery were not answered, let alone heeded. We were left no alternative but to go there and raise our voices. Some had advocated that we refrain from doing so. While we respect these fellow Catholics, we feel that a "polite silence" would have been a grave injustice to the babies whose murders are approved by Matthews (and some of the other parishioners, who flat-out told us that).
Others of our number went into the library where the event took place. They offered pointed questions and even more pointed rebukes. I walked into the courtyard as some of them were being ushered out. Below are some scenes from that. I understand that the proceedings inside the library itself were recorded. I will link to those videos in a future post when they are ready. (click here if you cannot see embedded video).
I truly hope that no other Catholic facility will see fit to besmirch its holy grounds by allowing another dissident Catholic to promote him/herself and by extension, his/her cancerous proclivities. However, should another such sad occasion arise, we will be ready.
