Thanks to Canon 212, I became aware of this situation in La Plata, MD. Father Larry Swink, pastor of Sacred Heart parish, came to the defense of a pro-life student at Archbishop Neale school in Port Tobacco who was being bullied in the school for his pro-life stance. Let that sink in for a moment. The student was being bullied in a Catholic school for being pro-life.
The parents of the bullies didn't take too kindly to Father putting a stop to the marauding of their darling little hellions. They complained to the Archdiocese of Washington. So what did the progressives at the ADW do? Without so much as a decent hearing (hmm... sound familiar?), they barred Father Swink from the school.
A petition has been started to get the archdiocese to reconsider their actions. The archdiocese really needs to stop undermining the One True Faith, starting at the top, meaning Cardinal Gregory himself. Please go to that link and sign it, and then alert others to do so.
One might ask why I'd be inclined to believe the narrative as stated on the petition page. It's very simple. What happened in La Plata is typical of what's been happening in the Archdiocese of Washington for years now. As Cardinal Wuerl behaved towards Father Guarnizo, so does Cardinal Gregory behave towards Father Swink.
Gregory joins Cupich in claiming that the USCCB was incorrect to highlight Biden's pro-abortion stance. Remember when Gregory waxed so indignant when President Trump visited the JPII Center? Get a gander of this picture of him presiding at a Mass with Pelosi as lector; the Mass, by the way, was a public funeral for pro-abortion Cokie Roberts. This is blatant episcopal hypocrisy.
