Straight Guy with the Catholic Eye: Planned Parenthood Express

Heads up, all! Planned Parenthood Express might be coming to a location near you.

That’s right - the nation’s largest killer of unborn children appears to be establishing “express” centers that will offer women and their male “partners” a plethora of human pesticides with which they can fornicate and abort ‘til their little hearts are content.

Oh, yes, lest I forget…PPE will also provide to its clients pregnancy testing, “options counseling,” gynecological exams and screenings for sexually transmitted diseases. How nice.

If there’s any worldwide organization that deserves intense scorn, it’s Planned Parenthood. Besides the thousands of abortions PP commits every year, the grossly immoral sex “education” it promotes in schools and its advocacy for abortion-on-demand, PP also has been “ignoring child abuse reporting laws and promising to conceal statutory rape and ongoing child sexual molestation.”

Maligned priests

I received this e-mail from Susan Gorski of Naperville, IL:

"One evening, while at work, one of my co-workers in a satellite office in Oklahoma City told me he was a convert to Catholicism. I told him I was happy to hear it. He then mentioned the story of a local priest there who had been falsely accused, by the gardener, of pedophilia. My co-worker said he knew it was false, as did everyone else, because the priest counter-sued the accusing gardener, who admitted in open court that he was just looking for easy money.

"Easy money... There was no taking into account the damage he would do to faith, the Church, the poor priest or even priests in general. While I know that many of these accusations are true, there are many that are not true. What about the good names of those priests? How do they proceed after the false accusation? The priest must forgive, but he is human, and he becomes a victim when falsely accused. How many of these men are out there suffering and yet the media does not clear their good names.

"At one of the local parishes in this diocese, a couple was making their first visit to the priest for their marriage preparation. The man had been married in the Church before, but did not have the benefit of an annulment. When the priest found that out, he told them that he could not marry them in the Church because in the eyes of the Church, the man was still married to someone else. The man first tried to offer a bribe to the priest. When the good father explained money wouldn't solve the problem, the man told the priest that if he didn't marry them, the man would go to the media and denounce the priest as a pedophile. I would guess that the woman had apparently never seen this side of her fiancé before. I am told that she told him in the presence of the priest that if he went to the media and denounced the priest, she would tell them he was a liar. Praise God she had the courage to defend the priest.

"Another side of this was expressed to me by a young priest-friend of mine who offered up his worry that if someone got mad at him, they might falsely accuse him. I reminded him about the story in the Bible of Susanna. She, too, was falsely accused of sexual misdeeds, for which she was to be executed. She trusted in the Lord and He delivered her. [My priest-friend] said he remembered this story.

"It reminded me that anyone can be falsely accused of any type of wrongdoing because of the capital sins of others. Reflecting on Susanna, I recall her saying that it was death to her if she did not do what the men demanded of her, but a far greater death if she so sinned in the sight of God. It was better for her to forfeit her life, than lose the grace of God. I hope for myself, if I should come to such a pass, that I would follow her example. If God brings us to it, He will bring us through it.

"Please always remember to pray for priests, especially in the times in which we live now. This is so very important that every priest have as many prayers as we can say for them. So many have been attacked and maligned, and some led astray. Pray hard and entrust them always to the Blessed Mother, who is the Queen of all clergy. Under her mantle, they will be kept from harm."

What liberals have wrought

And I received this e-mail from Hill DeWolfe of Houston, TX:

"…Liberals believe that their plan to reengineer society is the best one that could be brought forward (always assuming that society is in need of reengineering), and they are equally sure that anyone who disagrees with them is (sadly for them) simply benighted and clueless.

"It usually doesn't help to point out that every liberal alteration made in society in the past century - with the single exception of giving the franchise to women - has been a disastrous failure yielding a harvest of pain so great that the suicide rate is about triple what it was sixty years ago. You can tick them off on your fingers: modifications to the public schools engineered by 'experts' like John Dewey and Horace Mann, no-fault divorce, abortion-on-demand, gender-integrated basic training and unit structure in the U.S. armed services, a wider role in society for homosexuals. The list goes on and on.

"If most of the records hadn't been destroyed by the various waves of barbarian invaders, we might discover that the Roman Empire had been felled by like means."
