BREAKING HARD ON O'S HEAD--- CATHOLIC ARMY OF CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE GATHERING AGAINST BARACK OBAMA
You thought the wall to wall pathetic whining by liberals about Tea Party Rallies (20 cities with 10 million in attendence), Sarah Palin at Rolling Thunder (greeting 500,000), Public Advocate Writing millions on the internet, Rush Limbaugh broadcasting to 10 million, was loud and screechy.
Wait until you hear the blood curdling screams from liberal commentators on the nightly news at the sight of the massive mobilization of "Onward Catholic Lawyers" and assorted mobs of rosary bearing church-going Catholics march against Barack Obama and his policies.
(Advanced Church Documents Cite Martin Luther King and his jailing, Beheaded Church Leaders By Henry VIII and ask for prayer and a devout understanding of Massive Civil Disobedience for moral purpose. Public Advocate's President Eugene Delgaudio writes the Pope: Talk Is Cheap, This announced "public action" will sustain American Church in the same fashion civil rights disobedience sustained that movement -- looking forward to the followthrough.)
This is not what we heard but what we would expect from traditional political practice based on the publicly available words printed in plain English:
Bishops and Cardinals are going to kneel and pray in the front of the White House.
They might even have an outdoor mass on the mall and "require 100 million Catholics to attend."
NONE OF THAT is announced by anybody with the Roman Catholic Church. Yet.
But its clear from mass printings of newsletters, inserts and other interviews to tens of millions of Catholics that this is coming down the pike. Soon.
Every year since Roe Vs. Wade, in 1973, you see half a million to a million on the mall each January.
This is the dedicated full time work of one person and several part-time volunteers called the annual "Right To Life March".
So what is the entire (liberal, moderate, conservative) leadership of the American Catholic Church going to do?
The American leadership of the Roman Catholic Church is putting together a massive effort to peacefully demonstrate opposition to Barack Obama's health policies requiring them to perform abortions and fund abortions from June 21 to July 4.
Let's just look at the exact phrasing here:
Quote: "We suggest that the fourteen days from June 21-the vigil of the Feasts of St. John Fisher and St. Thomas More-to July 4, Independence Day, be dedicated to this 'fortnight for freedom'-a great hymn of prayer for our country," said the bishops.
"Our liturgical calendar celebrates a series of great martyrs who remained faithful in the face of persecution by political power-St. John Fisher and St. Thomas More, St. John the Baptist, SS. Peter and Paul, and the First Martyrs of the Church of Rome," said the bishops. "Culminating on Independence Day, this special period of prayer, study, catechesis, and public action would emphasize both our Christian and American heritage of liberty." (unquote)
THE NEWS MEDIA IS GOING TO IGNORE TIME, DATE AND LOCATION ANYWAY
Okay no big rallies. No Giant March On Washington. No demonstrations.
Not even any central outdoor masses with large crowds. No major city parades-- no marches anywhere. That would seem too convenient for the news media.
Its been a year since the last major statement but this last sentence gives America a hint about the next chapter in peaceful American civil disobedience:
Quote from the Bishops
"It is a sobering thing to contemplate our government enacting an unjust law," the bishops said. "An unjust law cannot be obeyed. In the face of an unjust law, an accommodation is not to be sought, especially by resorting to equivocal words and deceptive practices. If we face today the prospect of unjust laws, then Catholics in America, in solidarity with our fellow citizens, must have the courage not to obey them. No American desires this. No Catholic welcomes it. But if it should fall upon us, we must discharge it as a duty of citizenship and an obligation of faith."
Public Advocate President Eugene Delgaudio responds with a note to the Pope in Rome:
Dear Pope Benedict XVI:
Your American leadership seems to be performing a public political action by refusing to go along with the Obama Administration and their allies closing down the Church when it comes to practicing their faith with child adoption, the right to life and the whole range of liberal dictates on the quality of spiritual life and the first Amendment of the American Constitution to practice your religious beliefs.
They are doing what any other small church or small congregation would do when wronged by a anti-church decision.
Only its a big operation here in America.
After the lawyers give their counsel and file their briefs, there's the real work of political outreach and this so-called unspecified public action will rightfully keep it up in the air exactly what form the "public action" will take.
That is a proper and reasonable tactic. In plain terms, it is wise to keep it vague this far in advance. Civil Disobendience on a massive scale is a very concise and very serious method of reaching public or societal progress.
It might be okay with bureaucrats and academic types to do nothing but real Americans do more than pray when their rights are taken away. Your American leadership is taking the high road.
A lack of "public action" got the country into the fix it is in. Here we have the entire American Roman Catholic leadership and they define "public action" as civil disobedience very clearly and the time period for it very sucinctly.
The location is generally described as the greater United States. We here at Public Advocate agree.
At thousands of locations: local or regional church functions like an extra required church Holy Day or observance will take place-- a series of internal discussions or civic and theological discussions.
The American government may actually succeed in dismantling what's left of the American Catholic Church but it will not be able to do it with their cooperation.
Civil Disobedience is all that is left for the American Catholic Church, they have no choice.
As an example of the timeliness of the Catholic Churches' announcement, it is time the rest of the American church structure got to the same understanding that too.
When they have taken away the Catholic Church, they will come for you next.
President, Public Advocate
