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


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.'" (, "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. []

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 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.

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.

"Exorcist Fr. Ripperger is asking everyone to say this Prayer until the Election is Resolved"

A good friend of the Catholic Monitor got this from a group message. She said "exorcist Fr. Chad Ripperger is asking everyone to say this prayer until the election is resolved": Prayer of Command In His Name and by the power of His Cross and Blood, I ask Jesus to bind any evil spirits, forces and powers of the earth, air, fire, or water, of the netherworld and the satanic forces of nature.  By the power of the Holy Spirit and by His authority, I ask Jesus Christ to break any curses, hexes, or spells and send them back to where they came from, if it be His Holy Will.  I beseech Thee Lord Jesus to protect us by pouring Thy Precious Blood on us (my family, etc.), which Thou hast shed for us and I ask Thee to command that any departing spirits leave quietly, without disturbance, and go straight to Thy Cross to dispose of as Thou sees fit.  I ask Thee to bind any demonic interaction, interplay, or communications.  I place N.

If Kamala Harris' Father is part White & part Jamaican African and her Mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black?

  Is Joe Biden's running mate really Black? If Kamala Harris' father is part white and part Jamaican African and her mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black? tries to figure it out: Kamala Harris, Joe Biden's pick to be the Democratic Party's vice-presidential nominee, is the daughter of an Indian immigrant mother and a Jamaican immigrant father. Her father, as I understand it, has ancestors of both European and African origin. [Welcome new Volokh readers. FYI, I've been working on a book on the American Law of Race, with this forthcoming article the first relevant output. My own opinion is that Ms. Harris should be deemed American, period, but there is no such box on government forms, and if you decline to state your race, someone will decide for you… First things first. There is no multiracial or mixed-race category in American law in any jurisdiction. Nor is there an Indian category. So Harris cannot be legally Indian, nor can she b

Bishops of Colorado gave an apparent Vaxx "Exemption" Letter & Stated: "Vaccination is Not Morally Obligatory and so Must Be Voluntary"

Today, the bishops of Colorado gave an apparent Vaxx " exemption" letter (21_8_Vaccine_Exemption_CCC_Fin...docx(20KB)) and stated that "Vaccination is Not Morally Obligatory and so Must Be Voluntary":  COLORADO CATHOLIC CONFERENCE 1535 Logan Street | Denver, CO 80203-1913 303-894-8808 |   [Date]   To Whom It May Concern, [Name] is a baptized Catholic seeking a religious exemption from an immunization requirement. This letter explains how the Catholic Church’s teachings may lead individual Catholics, including [name], to decline certain vaccines. The Catholic Church teaches that a person may be required to refuse a medical intervention, including a vaccination, if his or her conscience comes to this judgment. While the Catholic Church does not prohibit the use of most vaccines, and generally encourages them to safeguard personal and public health, the following authoritative Church teachings demonstrate the principled religious
