Drinan gets ABA award

Drinan gets ABA award

“It’s the Devil calling. He’s come to collect your soul.”

Father Robert Drinan is being awarded the American Bar Association’s highest award at its convention this year. Drinan is the most liberal, most outspoken heterodox priest in the country today. He was a representative in Congress until the Vatican ordered that his superiors tell him to quit. Most infamously, he was the one who provided liberal Catholic politicians like Ted Kennedy and Mario Cuomo with the moral justifications to support abortion so that they could continue to call themselves Catholic while doing everything to advance the cause. You might say he’s the father of “personally opposed, but ...” and the “seamless garment.”

Drinan and the national lawyers’ group: They’re perfect for each other.

  • Fr. Drinan is now advising Sen. John Kerry on how to word his “religious” beliefs using the age-old rhetorical techniques of ‘broad mental reservations’.  His association with Sen.Kerry is done through the intercession of Mary Beth Cahill, Kerry’s campaign director(who is being loaned to him by Sen. Ted Kennedy). Mary Beth started her journey into politics when she was a student at Marian High in Framingham. Fr. Drinan was running for office as a Representative and had an office a short distance from Marian High. Mary Beth and some other students volunteered to help him. So she knows Fr. Drinan and his way of obfuscating Catholic beliefs from her early training at the feet of Fr. Drinan. What a perversion of Catholic education!!

  • I wonder where Dante would have put Drinan and Greeley…..low on the rungs of purgatory or high on the rungs of hell??

  • And from the bad sometimes leads to good department:

    I was unaware of this web-site. 

    So after I read about Father Drinan and his “award” (why on earth do people get their jollies out of earthly recognition?) I poked around and guess what? You can download a good translation of “The Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatious of Loyola”… FOR FREE!

  • As I read about all the awards and honors given to Fr. Drinan, I am reminded of the saying: “You have already received your reward…” 

  • Kelly,

    I think that we should start a petition to get that free copy of the Spiritual Excercises permanently pinned to the desktop of every Jebbie.

    Maybe we can also start a petition to have the Scholastics to learn them while in formation…..what do you think?


    N.B.  I think that Dante would have sent them to Level 7, Violent.  The violent, the assasins, the tyrants, and the war-mongers lament their pitiless mischiefs in the river, while centaurs armed with bows and arrows shoot those who try to escape their punishment.  This is the home of the scorching sand where those who committed violence against God and nature are showered with flakes of fire that rain down against their naked bodies.  Incidentally it is also the home of the sodomites.  Read Cantos XII-XIV.
