the ninnies who educate Catholic children

By Diogenes (articles ) | Mar 04, 2010

Fact: The National Catholic Education Association (NCEA) has invited Garrison Keillor to address its annual convention

Fact: Garrison Keillor has referred to pro-lifers as "shrieking ninnies and pompous blowhards." 

The charitable conclusion to be drawn from this is that the leaders of the NCEA--a group that "provides leadership, direction and service to fulfill the evangelizing, catechizing and teaching mission of the Church"-- don't mind being characterized as ninnies. A different conclusion could be drawn. It's not reassuring.

    And so why is the NCEA not being stripped of the word 'CATHOLIC' in it's acronym title? What Bishop is responsible for this attrocity...? Where's the Catholic outrage???

    This is the anti-church at work. When will the Holy See and the bishops go after the anti-church many of whom are bureaucrats ostensibly supposed to work for the Church but in fact work against the Church. Another area of deep anti-church infiltration is education. Consider all the pseudo-Catholic schools, the Planned Parenthood infiltration in the schools. This is not an accident. When will the Holy See and the bishops move against the culprits?
