Cardinal McCarrick Praises Culture Of Death Icon Father Hesburgh

Father Theodore Hesburgh, president of Notre Dame University for thirty-five years, used his influence and position to severely compromise Catholicism in the United States (maybe the entire western world) and to promote the Culture of Death.  Part and parcel of the Culture of Death is socialism.  This blog and a number of others have documented his rather putrid career.  He has:
  • Played a pivotal role in creating and promulgating the heretical Land O' Lakes Statement, that declared de facto rebellion of Catholic colleges against the Magisterium.
  • Gave aid and comfort to Alinsky-disciple Msgr Jack Egan (when the latter was evicted from his diocese), allowing Notre Dame to be used as a base to create the Catholic Campaign for Human Development
  • Chaired the Rockefeller Foundation, advocates for "population control"
  • Go to this link to see how Notre Dame University has done tremendous insult to Christianity.  The 2009 commencement was just the most notorious example.  I've no doubt that this list is not exhaustive.
I think it's fair to say that if it weren't for Fr Hesburgh's influence, Catholic institutes of higher learning would not be polluting the minds of their students.  The CCHD may not have gained the footholds in so many chanceries that it now has.  And yes, Obama may well not be president.

Two days ago in the US Capitol Building, some Catholic (using "Catholic" loosely) politicians hosted a birthday party for Father Hesburgh.  We can guess why there was no screeching and howling from the "separation of church and state" crowd over this - because their champion was being honored!  Among the "usual suspects" in attendance were Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi: two CINO pro-aborts who enjoy their positions of influence due in no small part to Fr Hesburgh.  

One of the other attendees called Father Hesburgh "one of four great Americans", the other three being George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln.  For the profuse amount of slobbering, kissing-up and toadying that oozed from such a stupid statement, this attendee made an utter fool of himself.  And who was that who stuck both feet in his mouth?  Cardinal McCarrick!

Today was not at all the first time that Fr Hesburgh and Cardinal McCarrick met.  Thanks to a colleague in the Catholic Media Coalition, I was informed that Cardinal McCarrick is a signer of the Land O' Lakes Statement.  Go to the link to the statement and scroll down.  Sure enough, his name is there.  He stood "lock, stock and barrel" with those who deliberately introduced dissension and heresy into our Catholic schools!

This past Sunday, Pentecost Sunday, Cardinal McCarrick was the main celebrant at the 9:30 Mass at St John Neumann Church in Gaithersburg, MD.  I was in attendance and recorded his homily; I link to it here.  Take note of the homily between 4:50 and 5:10.  He says that "once we leave the teaching of the Apostles...then Islam comes.."  While that statement is true enough, I was aghast when I heard it for I remembered other times when he affirmed Islam.  As you continue to listen him praise (rightly so) the "purity of doctrine", recall how he helped adulterate that same purity with his affirmation of the poisonous Land O' Lakes Statement and his squalid associations with Sister Carol Keehan, Ted Kennedy, John Sweeney, etc.

In his Pentecost homily, Cardinal McCarrick deplored the confusion that his ongoing actions create!   His celebration of Father Hesburgh just a few days ago after that homily is merely the latest in the litany of contradictory messages that he sends.  Holy Mother Church is suffering through want of fidelity of action on the part of her shepherds.  Pray that God would send these to us quickly.


  1. We must constantly pray for the purification of our religion. It is my view that until we purge those who seek to destroy Christ's Holy Church, there can be no rebuilding. I have great hope that Pope Francis will accomplish this in short order. Pray.

  2. Don't put your hopes in Pope Francis for cleaning up the Church--read what he has written on economics;
    he is even more socialoistic than Hesburgh. We have to wait and pray for a true successor to St Peter who will lead us back to Jesus with a TRUE gospel

    1. The jury is still out regarding Pope Francis on matters of prudential judgment. We do have God's promise that the Holy Father cannot proclaim error.
