Our Action Required - Another Actual Priest Thrown Under The Bus In The Archdiocese Of Washington

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.


  1. I wish some of these priests would go to the SSPX after the bishop throws them under the bus. The false shepherds don't deserve them.

  2. Thank you for the heads up on this. I also post the story on Fr. Larry on my blog. Of course, you will be given credit for the tip. Thanks.

  3. I'd have that kid outta 'catholic' school before the end of the day.

  4. Fr. “Prolife warrior” Swink got the abortion-tainted shot & participated in the ongoing desecration of a human body....as many under his spiritual care anxiously await losing their livelihoods for NOT taking it! And, Swink caught Covid anyway! FOOL!

    1. I am sorry to hear that he took the cootie-jab. However, that is an issue separate from the injustice described in the post.

    2. On this occasion, and, in light of the title of this article, Fr Swink threw preborn babies under the bus for the Archdiocese of Washington.

  5. On one hand, He defends a “prolife” student, yet on another, he participates in taking the Abortion-tainted jab. Just pointing out the hypocrisy.
