This is the third installment in a 3 part series. Part one may be review here on Catholic Online - The Attempted Coup of The Catholic Church in Boston Part 1.

Post: The July 22 announcement [to not accept VOTF funds] set in motion a sequence of words and actions that sharply divided priests and laity throughout the archdiocese and helped create the toxic environment that eventually led to Law's resignation as archbishop.--July 22, 2003 Boston Globe.

The implication is that if O'Malley makes the same mistake, he can expect the same treatment. Paul LaCamera, by the way, is vice trustee for Catholic Charities who also stated Voice of the Faithful is all about raising money for church charities.(sic)

Boston University Trustee David D'Allessandro who in 2002 also called for the removal of Cardinal Law recently encouraged a political movement against Archbishop Sean O'Malley. Boston University works in collaboration with Mayor Menino and the City Council in running Boston University Medical Center, where embryonic stem cell research takes place at its Biosquare across from the Cathedral of the Holy Cross. It is also the site of a biological accident involving a form of Tularemia. Tularemia, also known as rabbit fever, is a biological weapon developed by the Soviets early in the twentieth century.

(D'Alessandro: The Vatican sets all the rules. Priests cannot marry. Gays cannot marry. Women cannot become priests. The divorced can not accept Communion without an annulment. Abortion is forbidden. Birth control is anathema. . . . These parish sit-ins and protests are a wonderful beginning to sending a message to the Vatican Do not be fooled. O'Malley is but Rome's latest messenger, just like Law. Instead of a Basilica though, if he convinces people they must leave their parishes and schools, his reward will be a cardinal's red hat.

Protest publicly -- long and hard. Campaign vocally to deny him the red hat and Rome will get the message."David D'Alessandro Sell Art and Keep Parishes Open Boston Globe July 9, 2005) Don't miss D'Alessandro's list of what makes a Catholic of integrity.

Oddly, the man who hates Catholic Teaching said the following in calling for Cardinal Law to resign 3 years earlier.

Catholics and non-Catholics alike -- need such a decision [resignation] from the cardinal because the church is so important to our community. An unending series of headlines about child abuse threatens the many good works the church does in housing and education, among the sick and the poor.

In this climate, only someone with unquestioned credibility will be able to forward these initiatives and raise the money for them. There is only one way for the Archdiocese of Boston to put this scandal behind it and regain its rightful role as a force for good within our community. And that is with a new pastor and teacher and father at the top. --Boston Globe March 2, 2002

His understanding of Catholicism changed drastically in three years don't you think? Please note that like Post and LaCamera, D'Alessandro also makes a charities connection. Mayor Menino described him in 2001 as one of his men that he approaches to get things done.

It is clear that there is an overwhelming body of evidence that there is a coup in place against the Roman Catholic Church in this country, especially in Massachusetts. This evidence presented here is a small amount compared to a larger body of evidence that backs up the obvious.

Further, every politician I just mentioned in this article is a Democrat. It is clear that many members of the Democratic Party and particularly those in the Northeast, especially Massachusetts, have become an American form of the Orangemen. The Orangemen are the enemies of Catholics in Northern Ireland.

This should not surprise us. I already mentioned both Democrat Barney Frank's anti-Catholicism and the late Christopher Reeve's extreme views against Catholics and Republicans. When we listen to Howard Dean, we can hear vicious rhetoric against Republicans. Considering the members of his party, from John Kerry who used his receiving of communion as a political tool, to James Kelly, one would have to ask what rhetoric Dean is also using behind closed doors against Catholics. Dean is an ex-Catholic.

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts is not a sovereign state. It is part of the United States of America. It is time for the Department of Justice to expand its investigation into the politics of Mayor Menino to include the state ...
