And now a group of prominent area residents, claiming to be Catholic, have placed an open letter to the Vatican in the San Francisco Chronicle attacking the archbishop who has “fostered an atmosphere of division and intolerance” and asked Pope Francis to remove him from office.
Who are these “prominent Catholics” who are so offended by the archbishop’s call for
Catholic schools to remain Catholic? Lisa Bourne
of LifeSiteNews has identified them and found that they are big donors to Rep.
Nancy Pelosi (D-Cal), her party, and pro-abortion andpro-homosexual marriage
groups. Lisa will join Deacon Mike Manno and Gina Noll Tuesday to discuss what
she has reported and to reveal the relationship between these “prominent Catholics”
and other groups and individuals who actively oppose Church teachings.
In addition to Lisa, our research associate Stephanie Crowley will review the movie “Monumental,” a story of America’s beginnings. Presented, produced, and starring Kirk Cameron, the movie follows this father of six across Europe and the U.S. as he seeks to discover America’s true “national treasure” – the people, places, and principles that made America the freest, most prosperous and generous nation the world has ever known.
Join Deacon Mike and Gina Tuesday at 9 a.m. (CDT) for a lively conversation of these and other issues affecting our religious freedoms.
