The Diocese of Cleveland issues a warning to Catholic parishes that seeing a movie that illustrates the events of the Gospels may lead to the rise of anti-Semitism in churchgoing Catholics. Meanwhile, a local Catholic university allows the production of the “Vagina Monologues” on campus with proceeds going to a pro-abortion group. The diocese’s response when told about this immoral play supporting the murder of babies? “No comment.”

Evidently, according to the Diocese of Cleveland, the greater threat to society is a movie about the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ, not a play that promotes sexual immorality and the funding of pro-abortion groups.

“Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe (in me) to sin, it would be better for him if a great millstone were put around his neck and he were thrown into the sea.” (Mark 9:42)

  • Sorry, Jeanne, but the bishop did order the end of perpetual eucharistic adoration in St. Petersburg. I reported on this four years ago for Catholic World News. You can see the report from CWN and the Wanderer here.

    And there is perpetual adoration at the Vatican and in several other places in Rome.

  • Since St. Petersburg and adoration have nothing to do with the subject of this blog entry, I’m going to let it drop as well as the other implication that somehow I got the story wrong and that it’s because I may not be praying enough.

  • The Worcester Diocese newspaper had an article on the Passion. It was long on warning about anti-Semitism and long on quotes from Mary. C. Boyes.

    I’m developing a reponse to rip that article.

    So far, it seems like the Catholic Church doesn’t have the guts to support the movie.

    There alot going back and forth about the inclusion of a line from mathew !! Can you believe it ?!?! Once again, it is proving that the liberals are fearful of the Bible and what it says.
