Anti-Fr. Altmann Bp. Callahan Failed to Offer a "Fraternal Correction" to his long-time Colleague, Disgraced Weakland who Covered-up Sex Abuse

"WHY DIDN’T FR. ALTMAN’S BISHOP CALLAHAN EVER 'FRATERNALLY CORRECT' HIS LONG-TIME COLLEAGUE, THE NOTORIOUS REMBERT WEAKLAND?" - Canon 212

La Crosse diocese Fr. James Altmann in his YouTube viral video rightly said: “You can not be Catholic and be a Democrat. Period.”

LifeSiteNews, on February 18, 2009, reported that Catholic Pope Benedict  XVI "rebuked" Democrat  Nancy Pelosi for being pro-abortion:

"[L]eft-leaning Papal watcher... correspondent John Allen, who writes for the [pro-abortion] National Catholic Reporter, noted that 'routine Vatican declarations after diplomatic meetings also generally sum up the range of issues discussed rather than concentrating on a particular point. In that sense, the statement can only be read as a rejection of Pelosi's statements last summer, and, in general, of her argument that it's acceptable for Catholics in public life to take a pro-choice position.'" (LifeSiteNews.com, "Pope [Benedict] Rebuked Pelosi, Told Her Catholic Legislators Obligated to Protect Life: No Pelosi/Pope photos permitted, February 18, 2009)

Apparently rejecting the position of pro-life Pope Benedict on pro-abortion Democrats, Bishop William Callahan of La Crosse attacked Fr. Altmann saying "he will attempt fraternal correction before imposing canonical penalties or taking other formal steps in the matter, and acknowledged that the priest had inflicted a 'wound' upon the Church."

The Badger Catholic posted that Bishop Callahan in a "report from May 13, 2009" that Callahan failed to offer a "fraternal correction" to a long-time colleague of his, the disgraced heretical Archbishop Rembert Weakland:

Callahan said he talked to Former Archbishop Weakland last week, but despite his knowledge of the book, it was not discussed.[ummm that's a bit strange]  Callahan, who's known Weakland for years, said he's surprised by Weakland's admission that he is gay [....soooo, he wasn't aware he had an affair with a male college student whom he paid millions out of diocesan funds??]  “I think it caught me off guard.  It was not necessarily something I was ready to hear coming from the Archbishop,” Callahan said. [none of us were ready, but "caught off guard" by that revelation?]

WISN 12 News asked Callahan if he thinks the Archdiocese can move on beyond the things Weakland left behind.“Certainly, without a doubt, certainly. The church has moved on for centuries with saints and sinners, and that's Jesus' intention,” Callahan said.  [Note Well:]Callahan said Weakland’s legacy in the church is not just his mistakes but also some of the good he did, including shaping the modern mass. He does not expect the Vatican to weight in on the book.

Moreover, Callahan failed to offer a "fraternal correction" to his long time colleague Weakland for "shredd[ing] reports about sexual abuse by priests during his tenure as head of the Milwaukee archdiocese, according to sworn testimony":

Archbishop Rembert Weakland shredded reports about sexual abuse by priests during his tenure as head of the Milwaukee archdiocese, according to sworn testimony that came to light this week. In depositions taken in the 1990s, the former archbishop admitted that he regularly destroyed documentation of abuse complaints. A victims’ group—the Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests, or SNAP—has asked local prosecutors to investigate whether criminal charges against Weakland would be appropriate. SNAP has asked Archbishop-elect Jerome Listecki, the incoming head of the Milwaukee archdiocese, to denounce Weakland’s behavior.

Archbishop Weakland resigned in 2002 after revelations that he had paid over $400,000 to a man who claimed to be his former lover. [https://www.catholicculture.org/news/headlines/index.cfm?storyid=4803]

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Mass and the Church as well as for the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

We are now in a time in history that is, as often seen, a repeat.

In 1789 the French revolution was in full bloom. Just like the current revolution in the former United States of America. There were guillotine executions of innocent nuns in beautiful Paris.

From WIKIPEDIA: "They were executed by the guillotine towards the end of the Reign of Terror, at what is now the Place de la Nation in Paris on July 17, 1794".

Wow that was a shining moment for the civilized French for sure. Mes amis lets kills some innocent nuns!

Well today we have the Democrat party which has supported the killing of innocent since 1970!

We have their driving voting base the Antifa and BLM crowd who are erecting Guillotines (in effigy today and soon for real later today!) in front of some prominent places out in Seattle and Portland and other places that obviously need to be cleansed and burned to the ground. Hey it is just a peaceful protest where they chop off peoples heads;)

What will it take for these spineless, worms, these emasculated shadows of what should be holy men, to stand up and say NO THIS IS WRONG!

How long did it take the French bISHOPS back in 1789? More from WIKI:

"During a two-year period known as the Reign of Terror, the episodes of anti-clericalism grew more violent than any in modern European history. The new revolutionary authorities suppressed the Church, abolished the Catholic monarchy, nationalized Church property, exiled 30,000 priests , and killed hundreds more." (The churches are still nationalized by the way...ie Notre Dame). Nationalized means they stole it from the Catholic Church or US the people of Christs Church on Earth. Stole it!

I guess we know that they will have to kill a few bishops before it gets..... well gets personal.
Cheers!

Why should the anti-American revolutionaries "kill a few bishops" when most of the American bishops apparently are part of the Biden Antifa/BLM "Reign of Terror" against good priests like Fr.Altmann or cowards?

Are bishops who don't support Fr.Altmann apparently either cowards or members of the Biden Antifa/BLM "Reign of Terror"?
Jim Dorchak said…
Why? Well because history has shown the last 5 to 10 times this happened.
When the killing starts it is always the Priests and Bishops, doctors, educators, librarians, followed by the homosexuals and the other mentally ill and weak who are typically killed first. Then they move on to anyone and everyone who disagrees.

Taylor Marshall finally admitted that "Francis teaches HERESY," now, the question is will he do a Skojec & a Schneider Cop Out

    Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales totally confirmed beyond any doubt the possibility of a heretical pope and what must be done by the Church in such a situation: "[T]he Pope... WHEN he is EXPLICITLY a heretic , he falls ipso facto from his dignity and out of the Church, and the Church MUST either deprive him , or, as some say, declare him deprived, of his Apostolic See." (The Catholic Controversy, by St. Francis de Sales, Pages 305-306) Taylor Marshall finally admitted that "Pope Francis teaches HERESY: Pope Pius XII condemned the heresy of Francis": Pope Francis on Feb 2 2022, taught, "that in Christ no one can ever truly separate us from those we love because the bond is an existential bond, a strong bond that is in our very nature...who have denied the faith, who are apostates." Pope Pius XII taught the exact opposite when he wrote of those: "who have not been so unfortunate as to separate themselves from the unity of the Body, or b

Wernz-Vidal: "One cannot consider as Schismatics those who Refuse to Obey the Roman Pontiff because they would hold his person Suspect or, because of Widespread Rumors, Doubtfully Elected"

    Pope Francis is tottering on the precipice of Hell. None of this means he isn't the pope, and such talk among the laity is scandalous in its own right. Not a single cardinal in that 2013 conclave has come out and said the election was rigged and Bergoglio isn't the pope, that he is in fact an anti-pope . If he is, a future pope can declare that, when Jorge Bergoglio will no longer be a pope. But if the very men gathered in conclave haven't made that public accusation,  anyone who is suggesting that better take into account that they too will have to give an account of themselves to Almighty God when they die . Such talk adds to the scandal of the "little ones," the simple, even potential converts, who, when they hear big-mouth Catholics on social media saying he's not really the pope, draw back from approaching the Church. Do any of us desire to stand in front Our Blessed Lord as the Supreme Judge and explain why, in our desire for more c

The Nuremberg Trial-like Excuse which Cardinal Burke has so Staggeringly, so Stereotypically Proffered on the Promised “Formal Correction”

Does Cardinal Burke think Francis is an antipope? On at least five occasions, Cardinal Burke has rejected the magisterial nature of official papal teaching (in one case, pre-emptively dismissing a hypothetical official teaching of the Magisterium): Cardinal Burke has rejected the official teaching of Pope Francis in the new Apostolic Constitution Episcopalis Communio concerning the possibility that a pope can raise the final synodal document to the level of ordinary magisterium, if the pope chooses. (We covered the Episcopalis Communio here .) The whole apostolic constitution on the Synod is problematic. … This idea that either the Pope on his own or the Synod together with the Pope can create some new Magisterium [i.e. a new teaching of the ordinary Magisterium], is simply false. The Synod is a consultative body, to help the Pope to see how best to present the Church’s teaching in time. It’s not able to create ordinary Magisterium. As a canon lawyer, Cardinal Burk
