The priestess in San Diego

Today's New York Times Magazine has an article (click on this post's title) about a priestess in San Diego, Mrs. Jane Via, 59. A ceremony was held a year ago today that she imagines "ordained" her.

She rents space from a Methodist church on Sunday nights to celebrate what she imagines is Mass. Bishop Robert Brom of San Diego advised her last Aug. 8 that she is under interdiction for the illicit "ordination" and therefore may not receive the sacraments.

The article says, "As a graduate student in the early 1970s, [Mrs.] Via was influenced by feminist theologians like Rosemary Ruether and Mary Daly." That figures.

But the article leaves out a lot: Who "ordained" her, what her husband and two grown sons think of her make-believe, do people call her "Father" or "Ma'am" or what?

The article quotes Cardinal Avery Dulles on priestesses:

“For an analogy in the secular sphere you might imagine that I could get a friend to swear me in as governor of New York. Would that make me governor?”

Quintero asks "[D]o people call her "Father" or "Ma'am" or what?

Someone suggested "Fs" (pronouced "fizz") as a combination of "Father" and "Ms."

Dear Anonymous 10:02 a.m.,

That's a good one, and I'll remember it. Thank you!

"Fizz" is right! -- as in "Fizzle."

I have just heard from John O’Gorman, the Fighting Knight of Columbus from Massachusetts, that the 170,000 signature Initiative Petition to define marriage as the union of one man and one woman was thwarted by the Legislature, meeting in joint Constitutional Convention, on Thursday, June 14 2007. The sad part is it would have passed to go on the ballot in 2008 had it not been for the votes of at least sixteen men who call themselves Knights of Columbus who voted against the Church they are supposed to be Knights of, and for the sodomites they support! They are:

Massachusetts Speaker of the House Sal Dimasi, and House Majority Leader John Rogers.

State Reps: Garrett Bradley, Bob Deleo, Stephen Di Natale, Chris Donelan, Christopher Fallon, Kevin Honan, Charles Murphy, Angelo Puppolo and Bob Spellane, Bob Nyman, and Paul McMurtry

State Senators: Tom McGee, Michael Knapik, and Michael Morrissey.

It only required 50 votes to bring this to the people of Massachusetts for a vote. The vote was 45 to do so. If the sixteen so called Knights had voted with the Church, and for the good of society, they would have had SIXTY ONE! God have mercy on their much compromised souls!

Seven of these Judases have PRO-CHOICE RATINGS FROM PLANNED PARENTHOOD OF MASS,, they are: The Speaker Dimasi, Bradley, Donelan, Honan, Murphy, Spellane, and McGee!

It seems that the Knights of Columbus, like the Bishops they follow, like to write nice things but run when they are asked to back up their writings with actions! In 2003, they actually passed a Resolution to in effect expel from the Order any Knight who supports abortion by forbidding these persons any honors or speaking platforms. WHAT A JOKE! Actually it is worse than a joke, because we have been told that whenever a Council tried to enforce the Resolution, that Council was quickly told not to do so by either their State or Supreme Offices!

Our Divine Savior had a great deal to say about such as these “Knights” when he said “Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you are like to whited sepulchers, which outwardly appear to men beautiful, but within, are full of dead men’s bones, and of all filthiness. So you also outwardly indeed appear to men just; but inwardly you are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.—Matt. XXIII. 25-28. Does anyone wonder what the Lord will say to these men when they stand before His Judgment seat?

This year, the “Knights” of Columbus will hold their annual Supreme Council meeting at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center, Nashville, TN. As always, it will be in the first week of August from the 7th to the 9th, 2007. We at Concerned Roman Catholics of America, Inc. are looking for someone from that area to help us plan another demonstration such as the ones we did in 2005 in Chicago and Dallas in 2004. If you or anyone you know is willing to help us in this effort, please contact us at 714-491-2284 or crcoa@dslextreme.com

God bless, yours in Their Hearts,
