DC's new Catholic archbishop slams Trump for 'diminishing our national life'
he District of Columbia's new Catholic leader - the country's lone black archbishop - on Thursday issued his first public statement since his installation, lambasting President Donald Trump's recent tweets about members of Congress of color as "diminishing our national life."
Wilton Gregory, who came to Washington in May, is known through his long, prominent career for being nonconfrontational on hot-button issues in public, but working quietly behind the scenes - a model similar to the man he replaced, Cardinal Donald Wuerl. But on Thursday, Gregory signaled that he wants to use his higher-profile perch in the nation's capital to challenge the use of identity - racial, national origin or otherwise - as a tool of attack....

Voodoo is not hunky-dory with the Catholic Church. This past Sunday at my Baptist Church the sermon was given by a retired Pastor(because Pastor Steve is still on vacation) who moved to Hastings, Minnesota from California to be near his daughter. The sermon was titled "The Supremacy of Jesus Christ" from Hebrews 1.

Catholic teaching is against abortion, homosexuality, homosexual marriage and every other perversion.
Chris G P, that sounds very similar to what happened within mainline denominations starting about 100 years ago, maybe more. And it should stand as a warning to the rest of us. What's happening to the RCC (which hasn't had a salvation message in, what, 1,500 years(?)) can happen to any group whom the Lord does not hold close to Himself. What about our denominations and conventions or individual churches? Will someone come and try to.lead them astray soon or later in the future? Is someone doing so now by trying to make it a "Side B" group in regards to LGBT?
is now in hiding for fear of his life, and other bishops and cardinals who have supported him, have been sidelined and set aside by Pope Francis.
Meanwhile a whole new set of younger senior priests, bishops, archbishops, and cardinals, well below 70 yrs old, (when bishops must resign their dioceses), and 80 yrs old, (when cardinals are no longer allowed to vote in Papal Election Conclaves, though they keep the title of Cardinal), are being groomed up by the Leftist, globalist, environmentalist, interfaith and pro-LGBT establishment to take over senior positions in the RCC, leading to more cover ups, and to the embracing of nominally Catholic leftist politicians , as well as non-Catholic politicians, who will implement these types of policies in their countries.
Many Traditionalist lay Catholics are up in arms, but are being squeezed out by their own church, as may I say, traditional evangelical Protestants are being squeezed out by some of their professed evangelical denominations.
The Traditionalist Catholics are absolutely fed up. Before his disgrace and finally enforced laicisation and dismissal as a Cardinal, and his now enforced confinement in an unnamed monastery somewhere in the rural USA for the rest of his days as a kind of retired lay brother, the peadophile LGBT Cardinal John McCarrick, Archbishop of Washington, DC, before his original resignation of that office, (all RC bishops are required to resign their dioceses at 70 years of age, though they keep the title bishop), who also had a beach house where he stayed with young seminarians, actually coached and prepared his successor, Donald Wuerl. .
This man continued the liberal policies of his predecessor, even contrary to Catholic doctrine, with a modernist and pro LGBT stance, and cover ups of paedophile priests, and on his resignation, also due to the age rule, he had personally coached up his successor, Wilton Gregory, already established as a pro-LGBT and doctrinal liberal in his previous diocese of Atlanta, I believe.
Pope Francis, the Jesuit, has personally presided over this transition process, and things are so bad, that the Catholic Traditionalist Archbishop Vigano, a former Papal Nuncio or Ambassador to the US, who rather bravely exposed this ‚Äúpro-LGBT Episcopal Mafia‚ÄĚ, is now i
Why did people pick skin color as the pedestal to stand on? Why not hair color? Or eye color?...
The blacks and the whites in our country are more race conscious than the sixties I believe. And it's not getting any better with the democrats screaming for restitution (more votes in disguise) on one side, and the white supremacists on the other...
The Bible never categorizes people by skin, but only by nation. That is something we could certainly learn from, if we want to get rid of the divisive race problems we have here...

Yep, right you are, DF. The Word, "Christian", as far as this world is concerned, is a huge umbrella term that covers anyone and everyone who has a Bible, even Mormons, who also call themselves, Christian. So, all of the Pedophile priests are "Christian", the loonies screaming bloody murder on street corners, are "Christian", the delusional souls murdering in the name of God, are "Christian", etc. I could go on and on, of course, but I'll end it with, even the Democrats/liberals, and sodomites/LGBTQ's of "faith", are "Christian"
So, we have quite the dilemna, when most people group everyone together with no clear line of delineation. The world sees no difference; no clear separation, so when one, who is no Christian at all, does something, it's, 'There goes those crazy/dangerous Christians again".
While we are the true Christians; the true body, I prefer, simply, follower of Christ.
A couple of things to put in your hopper when you consider this news item: for the Mainstream Media and most of the US public, all Catholics are Christians, and they represent the largest portion of Christians in the US. Next largest grouping is Baptists, in all their many varieties, including Seventh Day Baptists and those Primitive Foot Washing Baptists (not podiatrists, though). So, whenever you read a story favorable for church attendance or involvement, remember they are talking about Catholics just as much as they are about you.
Everyone knows the context of his comments, just like they do all of the others, but out of a hatred for the man, they twist everything into race; race baiting. The problem is that none of the liberal sheeple, along with this nation's low-information voters, who go about their daily lives like mindless drones, can be bothered to get their news from balanced sources, so what they hear is what they believe.
The Democratic party is a crime syndicate, and so thirsty for supreme, carte blanche, power and control, that they have no qualms ruining lives, familys, careers, bringing people to financial ruin, manufacturing crimes, suppressing evidence, imprisoning the innocent, defying court orders, spewing outrageous lies, causing civil unrest through race-baiting, and then with the liberal media in their corner, telling the American public how dangerous the conservatives are, how they're ruining this nation, and responsible for the unrest and the hate. A diabolical bunch who will literally do and say anything, at anyone's cost, in their blood-thirst to reign supreme.
Roman Catholics cannot complain about politicians because of their filthy evil recently uncovered abominable activities.
This puts them in the category of trumping even politicians by their disgusting behaviour in the community. When they are revealed as being criminally as well as ethically corrupt they have NO public pedestal on which to stand and throw stones in their home made glass house.
The Vatican's followers should be hanging the proverbial head in shame because of their abhorrent and wicked new persona manifested in all the nations.
Proving of course their true identity of the papal antichrist.
This man strains a gnat and swallows a camel. Of course voluble Trump is no Eisenhower, but how about longstanding political name-calling and threats by Democrats and even street violence by their terrorist subsidiary Antifa? These too diminish our national life.
