R&G WEEKLY ROUND UP
PFLEGER CLEARED: Michael Pfleger, the woke social justice warrior priest in Chicago has been cleared after two men accused him of homosexual child sex abuse. Cardinal Cupich was happy to reinstate the controversial priest and racist mayor, Lori Lightfoot, also applauded his return. Meanwhile fellow Chicago priest, Fr. Paul Kalchik, remains out of action because he dared burn a gay pride flag.
FR. ALTMAN'S REMOVAL: In the nearby Diocese of La Crosse, Wisconsin, popular priest Fr. Altman has been asked to resign as pastor of his parish. His sins? Being an outspoken critic of the Democrat pro-abortion platform and questioning issues pertaining to virus lockdowns and vaccines. Although Altman is accused of being too political, watch Church Militant's coverage of Pfleger's vindication speech and ask yourself which priest is the true partisan?
US BISHOPS DIVIDED: It seems as though the political and religious divides in America run all the way up to the US Catholic bishops. It is reported that more than sixty bishops have written the USCCB head, Archbishop Jose Gomez, requesting that nothing be done concerning Biden and other pro-abortion Democrats receiving Communion. Will we be in for some fireworks when the bishops hold their meeting next month? And at the local level, while Fr. Altman's bishop wants him gone, Bishop Strickland of Tyler, Texas, is calling upon Catholics to support him.
NEW LITURGY HEAD: English Archbishop Arthur Roche has been appointed to succeed Cardinal Sarah as the prefect for the Congregation of Divine Worship. Roche has a history of work with the congregation since 2012, having been appointed to it by Pope Benedict XVI. He was also president of the International Commission on English in the Liturgy (ICEL) from 2002 to 2012. More from the National Catholic Register.
CHINA LAB LEAK? The vindication of President Trump seems to be a regular occurrence over the past several months. First it was revealed that Sicknick died of natural causes, then we learned that the supposed Russian bounty program on American troops in Afghanistan was a lie. No it's being reported that the coronavirus might have been leaked from the Wuhan lab after all. Even Fauci is backtracking on his former statements to the contrary. YouTube political commentator, Tim Pool, reviews the changing narrative and how the media is editing early reports that "debunked" the Wuhan lab "conspiracy theory."
NO JANUARY 6 COMMISSION: Democrats in the US Senate failed to reach the 60 vote threshold to create what would be a very partisan commission to "investigate" the Capitol riot of January 6. Sadly six Republican senators joined with 35 House Republicans to vote in favor of the commission: Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, Bill Cassidy, Rob Portman, Lisa Murkowski, and Ben Sasse. Nine more Republican senators failed to vote, including Pat Toomey who said he would have voted with the Democrats. If the Republican Party is to become the party of the patriot and the worker, these neocon establishment RINOs must be voted out and replaced with nationalist populists. President Trump has a lot of work ahead of him.
FLORIDA VS. BIG TECH: Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has signed a new Florida law that cracks down on Big Tech censorship. More from Dr. Steve Turley.
EMMA - THE CALLING: The US Army has released a woke advertisement that featured clear nods to feminism and homosexuality seemingly in hopes of attracting more woke candidates to the US military. Thankfully the video has received nearly twenty-five times the number of dislikes to likes. And while the US bishops remain silent on matters such as these, we are reminded anew why faithful Muslims despise America.
