568. Mary Thompson keilholz and Bill Tonnis ..................Gay Advocacy and Archbishop Schnurr ?

In January we sent a note to Bill Tonnis and Mary Thompson Keilholz.
We were concerned that their "outreach" at Our Lady of Visitation Catholic Church
was "overreaching" to the point of "advocating" for the "LGBT cause".

We also sent a query in February inquiring as to the possibility of their working with Fr. Kyle. Our kids volunteered to attend their meeting. Our kids came home and shared what had gone on at the meeting. They were concerned.

If you read our post yesterday, you would have seen that Mary Keilholz is not shy about "liking" groups that our Catholic Church disagrees with.
Below you can see that she is also not shy about speaking out, and supporting, or "chatting", also.

Notice below, Mary Keilholz supports a pastor who's parish was "ejected" over a disagreement on homosexuality.

She notes below, more or less, oh well. 
I wonder what the 97 % of the members of the congregation that are not advocating for homosexuality will do ?

It all works out in the end though; they got invited to the White House !!!

Mary Keilholz would never be so bold about the rules of our Catholic Church, right ?
Think again.

Fr. Mark Burger
thinks about all of this ?

567. Homosexual Outreach: Our Lady of Visitation Cincinnati - Mary Tompson Keilholz "Likes"

Click Here
Mary Thompson Keilholz is one of the contacts 
for the LGBT Outreach at Our Lady of Visitation in Cincinnati, Ohio. 
It is interesting that their program is on the Cincinnati Diocese Webpage 
for the Courage Apostolate.
It is interesting because the common consensus among LGBT advocate groups 
is that Courage is a threat to the changes that the groups listed below 
would like to see occur in the Catholic Church.

“Courage” Comes to Detroit
.....It became evident that we needed to take some further action to call attention to and counter the upcoming information sessions on “Courage.”
.....A press release was written and sent out to local papers. Invitations to join our Vigil were sent to Dignity Detroit, PFLAG Detroit, and our local Catholic Parents group which was recently established. Notices were posted on Facebook and an interfaith LGBT advocacy group helped get the word out to other faith communities as well as arranging for posters to be printed for the Vigil
.....Unfortunately the message that “Courage” sends is still out there and is spreading.
.....Sincere people are looking to the Church for answers, but
the Courage message is the wrong answer for our LGBT daughters and sons.
.....“Courage” is on the move and
we need to be knowledgeable about its message and
ready to offer the loving alternative represented by Fortunate Families.

566. LGBT Outreach at Our Lady of Visitation Catholic Church and Fortunate Families.

Who are Fortunate Families ?

Fortunate Families connects Catholic parents of LGBT children with each other providing
mutual support for wherever
they are on this journey
to understanding and affirmation
and amplifies the voices of Catholic parents
making them more effective 
agents of transformation in the Church and society.

We sent another e-mail out to the leaders of the Homosexual Outreach groups at Good Shepard and
Our Lady of Visitation Catholic Churches in Cincinnati.

My sister and I went to your LGBT outreach at Our Lady of Visitation a few weeks ago. We noticed that you advocate for Fortunate Families on your Facebook page.

"My sister and I noticed that the parents who attended the meeting at OLV 
were depressed that their child was homosexual.

Why do you think that was?

If Fortunate Families think they are fortunate and Equally Blessed says they are blessed, 
then why are the parents bummed out?"

We hope Mary Thompson Keilholz will answer our note.
Mary removed her "likes"  page after we sent out our e-mail.

As you can see she Facebooks on the Fortunate Family site.

As you can see she "likes" what they are posting.

As you can see she "likes" Fortunate Families on her F.B. Page.

Mary Thompson Keilholz also likes other organizations that advocate for
Lesbians, Gays, Bi-sexual and Transgender people.

More to come in the next post.

"Efficiently and effectively fight back." Tolerance? Homosexual infiltration? ................................................... "Neopagan spirit of this world."

“Unfortunately, the radical feminist movement strongly influenced the Church, leading the Church to constantly address women’s issues at the expense of addressing critical issues important to men,” said Cardinal Burke, the former archbishop of St. Louis who was removed last year by Pope Francis from his position as prefect of the

Video: Blind man sees his wife for the first time in a decade

Video: Blind man sees his wife for the first time in a decade

It’s been ten years since Allen Zderad has seen his wife. Even though they were never apart.
68-year old Zderad has been blind for a decade but gets to see his wife thanks to modern technology.
Zderad suffers from a degenerative disease called retinitis pigmentosa, which damages the photoreceptor of the retina. But with a new device - the first test of which is captured in this video - he catches a blurry glimpse of his wife for the first time since losing his sight.
The image produced is, in the words of "crude" - but that doesn't make it any less emotional for him
From the Mayo Clinic:
"The first indication that the device worked: He lunged out to grab his wife's hands as she sat before him. The both broke into tears."

Fr. Rosica’s Ironic Lawsuit


So, if we are to understand the complaint here in its proper context, Fr. Rosica is upset because a one-man blog has openly criticized Fr. Rosica’s public statements which conflict with the Traditional teachings of the Catholic Church.  And, in the act of complaining that Mr. Domet’s comments “suggest that Fr. Rosica is willing to act unethically to further his own agendas and to do so at the expense of others,” Fr. Rosica is willing to file an unethical lawsuit at the expense of a family man in order to further his own agendas.  Did Fr. Rosica approach Mr. Domet first in private, as Our Blessed Lord instructed?  Did Fr. Rosica extend mercy to Mr. Domet by saying that even if Mr. Domet complied with Fr. Rosica’s demands he reserves the right to sue him anyway?  Is Fr. Rosica acting in any way like the victim he was ordained to be?  If the answer to these questions is “no,” then Fr. Rosica has made himself guilty of the very thing he complains Mr. Domet of suggesting about him on the Vox Cantoris blog. Read Further

Conflicts of Interest

The Faith Doesn't Matter

Hurling Vulgarity at a Cardinal

When a Catholic blogger makes a mess

We live in a litigious society. People sue for every and any reason: finding something gross in their fast food, slipping on an ice-covered driveway, getting one’s feelings  hurt.

In media, lawsuits abound: copyright infringement and stealing someone else’s work is illegal. When we post an image on this website we have to be 100% certain that it is copyright-free and we have permission to use it.

Sometimes, readers take offense at what we write. My article on NFP resulted in a strongly worded letter to my editor. Someone else called me a member of the “communion police” when I wrote an article that was critical of a supposedly Catholic funeral that really wasn’t. An atheist website threatened to “expose” me (whatever that means).  As Catholic bloggers and writers who strive to be true to Holy Mother Church and uphold the teachings of the Magisterium, at times what we write doesn’t sit well with other people. As long as there is a mutual respect for differences of opinion, we can live with criticism and opposing views.

Now it seems that Catholic bloggers can be sued simply for questioning, calling out, and exposing erroneous statements and actions of priests in high places who really should know better. The style in which a few of us write may be somewhat abrasive (therefore feelings may get hurt) or too traditional or orthodox for others; but as long as we stick to the facts, especially publicly acknowledged facts, we have the freedom to publish our work: freedom of the press, freedom of the law, freedom of our conscience.

On that beach in Rio, Pope Francis exhorted the Catholic world to “make a mess!”  As someone who has spent years cleaning up after my eight kids and my husband, I know that often in the process of cleaning my home, things get worse before they get better. Making a mess in order to clean my house includes shaking out the rugs and uncovering what is hidden underneath, piling mounds of dust and dirt while sweeping out what is lurking in the corners, overturning stones and rocks to expose new growth.

Making a mess with our blogging and writing is much the same. Sometimes, you have to shake things up to expose the facts. Sometimes you have to make some noise and rattle people out of their complacency. Sometimes you have to expose that pile of garbage.  And sometimes making a mess with our words means shining a light on the cracks and crevices that threaten the foundation so that it can be fixed and the cracks eliminated.

So go ahead, faithful Catholic bloggers. Make a mess! Keep it factual. Keep it real. Do it out of love for Holy Mother Church and in defense of authentic Catholic teaching.
