It’s my turn to talk to you. My Hubby doesn’t know how to tackle this piece of crapola, but I do.
Let’s start off by saying, we don’t provide the link for the National Catholic Reporter (a.k.a. Fishwrap and the National Catholic Schismatic) on our home page because we don’t want to jeopardize your spiritual health. Today, however, I’m going to make an exception and point out for you some of the typical, leftward-leaning crap that Fishwrap calls “Catholic” journalism. I’m focusing on one writer in particular – Peter Feuerherd. Below are some of his stories. You can find a more complete list here.
Consider a single sentence of Mr. Feuerherd’s journalistic style from just two days ago:
“The specter of Donald Trump’s one-month presidency hung over a Feb. 21 seminar on racism and religious faith here sponsored by Fordham University’s Center on Religion and Culture.”
That’s a great lead in to a fair and balanced story – right?
I’m not a journalist. So, I get to tell you my opinion and my opinion is that just about everything in Fishwrap is crapola.
Now that we’re clear on that point, let’s get on to why I’m writing this post. As you know, it’s been a very quiet Winter in Rappahannock County. True, 55 Rappahannock gals or wanna be gals went to the “Women’s March” and that resulted in a big splash in the local paper. Also true is the continuing undercurrent of promotion of every conceivable liberal agenda. The bewildering fact, however, was the general absence of our Pastor from the discussions and movements.
He’s not absent any longer! WooHoo!!! Our Pastor has been sighted in the great and distinguished Fishwrap. Yep, he has emerged from his Winter hibernation early and he’s hungry for some social justicism action. Read all about it in Peter Feuerherd’s article from yesterday – Parishes meet anxiety about increased deportation actions with counsel, support. The article is about immigration and obviously Fishwrap considers our Pastor to be an authority on the topic. So, what did our Pastor say?
Horace “Tuck” Grinnell, pastor of St. Peter’s Parish in Washington, VA, said immigrants in his rural area, a part of the Diocese of Arlington, are also being told their legal rights.
Perhaps the most important of these is the right to remain silent, he said. Immigrants are being told, if they are questioned by authorities, to provide their names, but are urged not to sign any papers, to avoid being tricked into signing their own deportation orders. They are also told not to open their doors to authorities unless they are provided with a warrant signed by a judge.
Grinnell said that while there have been no recent raids that he’s heard of in the immediate area of his parish, there is increased anxiety. “The children are terrified because they worry about their parents,” he said.
We report, you decide.
My own opinion is a contradiction:
– When, oh when, will our Pastor start placing the souls of St. Peter’s as his top priority?
– When, oh when, will our Pastor be on his way?
