almsgiving XXII

By Diogenes (articles ) | Oct 30, 2004

Suppose you're a priest of the Diocese of Little Rock. Ordained in 1964, you're professor of moral theology at Spring Hill College, a Jesuit college in Mobile. You have $2,000 in your pocket and are inspired to give it away. To whom, or what, do you direct your alms?

(a) to the Fellowship of Catholic Scholars

(b) to another spiritual or corporal work of mercy

(c) to John Kerry for President, Inc.

If you're Father Frederick Gunti, your answer is (c).

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Having known the Bishop of Little Rock, Peter Sartain, from his days as a priest in the Diocese of Memphis, I find it hard to believe he would put up with such priests. But, then again, I've been surprised over and over again by what supposedly orthodox bishops are willing to impose on the faithful just to get along with their fellow clerics. But, why Spring Hill? There must be some spot on the National Board for Fr. Gunti.

    Another example of "proportionality". We have these people spouting "proportionality" while 2 babies a minute are being KILLED. The dirty little secret in most parishes is that abortion kills. Priests do not discuss abortion because the parishioners get squeamish when it is discussed. Forty million dead babies and we have squeamish Catholics and crazy priests giving money to a pro partial birth politico. i wonder if the good Father has ever watched a partial birth filming!

    Last night I had the rare privilege of conditionally baptizing an almost 20 week gestation baby that was delivered at home unexpectedly. His one gasp for air was his last. We met some 30 minutes later in the ER ... I have every reason to hope that the sacrament won for him the eternity of bliss that John Kerry would deny to millions of unborn children through his staunch support for abortion. And special thanks to "Fr." Gunti for supporting Mr. Kerry's efforts.
