Lenten picket a month from today
As noted here before, the REC (pronounced "wreck") features some good speakers every year but also really bad ones: even anti-lifers and dissenters. They deceive the well-meaning attendees, who return home and spread the errors they have picked up.
One of the worst speakers this year is Father Richard Sparks. Concerned Roman Catholics of America (CRCOA) says that at the REC in 2002, he uttered evil speculations about the Son of God and St. Mary Magdalene, and about the Blessed Mother and St. Joseph. CRCOA adds that in Berkeley that same year, he said, "I believe in freedom. I believe in responsibility. And so I am not anti-choice."
The picketing alerts REC attendees to the dissenters. So mark your calendar now. The date of the picket is Saturday, April 1. For the exact time and other details, phone/fax CRCOA's Kenneth M. Fisher at (714)491-2284 or e-mail them at: firstname.lastname@example.org
The late, great Jesuit Father John Hardon said that unless we solve the catechetical problem, the Church in the United States will disappear like the ancient Churches of North Africa and Asia Minor. Let's not let that happen here!
