The only "serious confusion" among the faithful is just how long the Vatican will continue to parade indefensible arguments that attempt to limit the reaches of God's call.

http://evergreenedigest.org/sites/default/files/Women%27s%20Ordination%20Conference%20logo%202.jpgJune 1, 2018 | In this week's Catholic Women Called video, Bridget Mary Meehan, a bishop with the Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests, reminds us that we are already making what some have called "impossible," possible. 

The bravery of the women of Catholic Women Called directly contradicts Archbishop Ladaria's assertion that the ban on women's ordination is doctrine definitively held. Catholic women hear and respond to God's call, no matter the cost. This, we know, is crystal clear.

  • Even as the Catholic Church faces a historic crisis over sexual abuse, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops is promoting a special season of prayer for a "change in the Supreme Court."

Sept.8, 2018 | Without mentioning Brett Kavanaugh by name, the bishops have launched a nine-week "Novena for the Legal Protection of Human Life" which is all about abortion, with no mention of capital punishment, war, or poverty.


http://movetoamend.org/sites/default/files/sign-btn.pngSign the petition: Please immediately cancel the ill-timed "Novena for the Legal Protection of Human Life." Catholics need you to focus on reforming the church, not trying to advance President Trump's judicial nominations.



Catholics across America are yearning for honesty and transparency about the church's past and future. Instead they're being given yet more bulletin inserts with religious-right talking points about Roe v. Wade.

Faithful America is the largest and fastest-growing online community of Christians putting faith into action for social justice.

"Not by Might, Nor by Power": The Zionist Betrayal of Judaism ~ Moshe Menuhin

  • With a new introduction by Adi Ophir: An early and fierce critique of Zionism from a Jewish child of Palestine who argued against nationalism and injustice.
  • Described in Barnes and Noble

http://evergreenedigest.org/sites/default/files/Contributions%20For%20This%20Content-Rich%20Site%20banner.jpg

Born in 1893, Moshe Menuhin was part of the inaugural class to attend the first Zionist high school in Palestine, the Herzliya gymnasium in Tel Aviv. He had grown up in aHasidichome, but eventually rejected orthodoxy while remaining dedicated to Judaism.
 
As a witness to the evolution of Israel, Menuhin grew disaffected with what he saw as a betrayal of the Jews’ spiritual principles. This memoir, written in 1965, is considered the first revisionist history of Zionism. A groundbreaking document, it discusses the treatment of the Palestinians, the effects of the Holocaust, the exploitation of the Mizrahi Jewish immigrants, and the use of propaganda to win over public opinion in America and among American Jews. In a postscript added after the Six-Day War, Menuhin also addresses the question of occupation. This new edition is updated with an introduction by Israeli philosopher Adi Ophir, putting Menuhin’s work into a contemporary historical context.

Moshe Menuhin, one of the early anti-Zionists, once wrote … , “Jews should be Jews—not Nazis.” He was speaking of the Israeli oppression of Palestinians.

Predator priests will only face justice when those they abused find the courage to speak up.
David Clohessy, Guardian

Thu 16 Aug 2018 | It’s all about the bishops.” That’s the single most damning line from a new, 1,300 page report, released by the Pennsylvania supreme court on Tuesday, which found that 300 predator priests in the state had abused more than 1,000 children since 1947. It’s the latest scandal in the Catholic church’s continuing child abuse crisis.

The two-year investigation, conducted by Pennsylvania’s attorney general and a dozen grand jurors, involvedhundreds ofinterviews, and examined half a million pages of church records. The probe is the biggest US government investigation into child abuse inside the Catholic church.

David Clohessy is the former executive director of the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP)

The Catholic Church is a profoundly and irredeemably morally corrupt institution that allows children to be treated as disposable sex toys for predatory clergy.

Michael Stone, Patheos

August 15, 2018 | The truth hurts: Make no mistake, if you support the Catholic Church, you support the rape and sexual abuse of children.

Earlier this week the Pennsylvania Supreme Court released a sweeping grand jury report on child sex abuse in the Catholic Church. The report documents the rape and sexual abuse of more than a 1,000 children by more than 300 “predatory priests."
