Dissent Comes to Holy Trinity (Again)

Although Holy Trinity no longer advertises VOTF meetings (but they are still listed as the "sponsor" of the VOTF chapter in DC), it would seem to me that they are attempting to pick up the slack given that St. Al's is no longer operating.

On Oct. 6th, Sr. Simone Campbell will be speaking there on social justice

Yes, this is the same Sr. Campbell who did the "nuns on the bus" tour (who sponsored it, I would like to know), spoke at the Democrat Convention to criticise Rep. Paul Ryan and is willing to give her opinion on a number of other issues, but when it comes to abortion, she has none.

Here is the question asked of her by The Weekly Standard (Sept. 5, 2012):

TWS: On the legal question, do you think there should be penalties against abortion doctors? I mean, should it be illegal to perform abortions?
CAMPBELL: That’s beyond my pay grade. I don’t know.

You don't know?  Give me a break.

It is really shameful that a Catholic Church would give her any platform on which to speak. 

Hey, Hyattsville, did you know this?

This is the same church that gave Biden a standing ovation after he went up to Communion - and the ovation happened before the Dismissal. Are you or anyone else going to lead a picket of this event? I can't since I'll be in front of Planned Parenthood at that time. I'll be happy to lend support to any effort.

Pray for the poor, silly woman and the silly parishioners who will cheer for her. She's getting her 15 minutes of fame and increasing her millstone in the process. As for Holy Trinity...they once had Barnum and Bailey performing in the sanctuary during a "clown Mass." And there were plenty of clowns in the congregation.
