British MPs Fear Roman Catholic Schools Teaching Roman Catholicism

Roman Catholic bishops are to appear in front of a powerful committee of MPs amid fears that they are pushing a fundamentalist brand of their religion in schools. Bishops have called on parents, teachers and priests to strengthen the role of religion in education. In one case the Bishop of Lancaster, Patrick O'Donoghue (note: this man reports to the Pope, Not Cardinal Comic Muphy-O'Connor-TooManyLastnames), instructed Catholic schools across much of north-west England to stop 'safe-sex' education and place crucifixes in all classrooms.

He also wrote: 'Schools and colleges must not support charities or groups that promote or fund anti-life policies, such as Red Nose Day (not sure what this is) and Amnesty International, which now advocates abortion.' In a 66-page document, O'Donoghue called on teachers to use science to teach about the 'truths of the faith', only mention sex within the 'sacrament of marriage', insist that contraception was wrong and emphasise natural family planning. (sounds like good old time Catholicism to me.)

The Bishop of Leeds, Arthur Roche, (note: this man reports to the Pope, Not Cardinal Comic Muphy-O'Connor-TooManyLastnames) sent a letter to parishes warning them that Catholic education was under threat following attempts by the local council to set up an inter-faith academy.

Barry Sheerman, chairman of the parliamentary cross-party committee on children, schools and families, said he had heard of other cases and felt that behind the scenes there was 'intense turmoil' about the future of Catholic education. 'A group of bishops appear to be taking a much firmer line and I think it would be useful to call representatives of the Catholic church in front of the committee to find out what is going on,' he said. 'It seems to me that faith education works all right as long as people are not that serious about their faith. But as soon as there is a more doctrinaire attitude questions have to be asked. It does become worrying when you get a new push from more fundamentalist bishops. This is taxpayers' money after all.' (the man has a point, if you take money from Caeser..then you must serve Caeser salad. It is time for Roman Catholic schools in England to refuse taxmoney.)

London Cardinal Fears That Polish Roman Catholics Are Roman Catholic

From the Telegraph (UK)

The leader of the country's Roman Catholics has sparked a row by accusing immigrants of creating a separate church in Britain.

Murphy-O'Connor, the Archbishop of Westminster, urged the Polish community to do more to learn English and integrate into local parishes, claiming the Catholic Church in the UK was in danger of dividing along ethnic lines as the number of Polish-speaking churches rose.

Leading Polish community figures said they felt
"violated" and "spiritually raped" by his words and called for talks on the issue.

It cracks me to hear athiest and Protestant writers attempt to explain what is going on. The Cardinal is the Cardinal of the Westminster Diocese ... he has no authority in other Dioceses. The fact of the matter is the Murphy-O'Connor is a liberal heretic and in a better age he would be burned at the stake.

It is even funnier to hear liberals oppose "diversity" and "repsect for other cultures."

His appointment was a mistake that was crammed through the Vatican during the waning days of the pontificate of Pope John Paull II. Even they realized what an error that had made and forced Murphy-O'Connor to sign a pledge of fidelity to the Vatican before he took power. Not a ringing endorsement after the error had been made clear. Murphy-O'Connor is a protestant collaborator and should be removed at once.

The bottom line is that the Poles are Roman Catholics and they are interfering with Cormac-Murphy's proto-protestant sect that he has launched inside the Roman Catholic Diocese of Westminster, England.

The Most Amazing Piece of Music Ever

What power art thou
Henry Purcell 1689/1691:
King Arthur, The British Worthy
3rd act

What power art thou, who from below
Hast made me rise unwillingly and slow
From beds of everlasting snow?
See'st thou not how stiff and wondrous old,
Far unfit to bear the bitter cold,
I can scarcely move or draw my breath?
Let me, let me freeze again to death...

Sung by Claus Nomi
