Ann Coulter--On the Mark with Godless

By Fr. Robert J. Carr
Catholic Online

The Parochial Vicar of the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Boston during the priest abuse crisis, I found myself in the midst of a movement that was bigger than a concern of safety of children. Indeed, it became apparent in no time at all, that we were dealing with a well organized operation that had connections to Harvard University, Boston University, Boston College, Hearst-Argyle Television and the Boston Globe. It also had a connection to one other organization whose members cringe when I affirm their involvement—The Democratic Party. The goal, to overthrow the Roman Catholic Church and replace it with a state friendly Church forcing the real one underground a la China.

This became clear after watching protesters, some of them paid, who harassed and verbally abused innocent children and adults with sexually charged words ("Children keep your hands on your privates, there are priests in [the Cathedral]", "You are entering the House of Rape." "You are the Cardinal’s whore." Spoken to a lone black woman entering the Cathedral to attend mass.) Innocent parishioners were labeled pedophiles, another defending the Church was spat upon by a protester. (The protester at another time held a sign that said Power Corrputs, we found out later she was a public school employee. She also sent me a gloating e-mail when she learned that inner city teens were killing each other on Boston streets.)

Yet, further investigation revealed that this movement rooted itself at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University and had, among others, Mary Jo Bane, and Marshall Ganz as leaders in this vicious anti-Catholic attack. Bane, who calls herself a Catholic is a former member of the Clinton Administration. She is most famous for her call for children to be plucked from their families to be brought up by the government to ensure perfect equality in society. Ganz, a union organizer and strategist for the Dean Campaign, used his status as faculty at Harvard's Kennedy School and money from the Carnegie Foundation to promote the community organizing that was the harassment of innocent Catholics in Boston and elsewhere.

There were others, David D'Alessandro chairman of the Board of Boston University who called for a political movement against Archbishop O’Malley and thereby tipped his hand as to his involvement in the plot to overthrow the Catholic Church. He is Boston Mayor Thomas Menino's "go to guy". The mayor like every elected politician in Massachusetts, especially Boston remained quiet when innocent Catholics were being bashed. Menino now finds himself in the midst of a mess in which teens are killing each other in his city, the place that harassed innocent faithful in the interest of the safety of rich, white children in the suburbs. Yet, he made it virtually impossible for Catholics to play a part in stopping the violence, so the violence does not stop.

We discovered most, if not all of this, by the end of 2003. It was all confirmed on June 6, 2006 when Ann Coulter published her book Godless.

Reading her prose, I see that she also discovered that there is an organized vicious pagan, anti-Catholic, anti-faith attitude that has gripped the Democratic party and is seeking to snuff out religion and replace it with the doctrine taught at Harvard University. This can become the state religion because what is it they believe in at Harvard? Indeed, as Coulter points out, nothing but lies and vice and that is not illegal, especially in Massachusetts.

Coulter brings out through half her book the reality that the liberal doctrine is based on an atheistic understanding of Darwinism. Liberals hold this evolutionary theory as gospel because it allows them to reject God, she writes. She further illustrates that the liberal understanding of Darwin also creates a book burning attitude towards any science that discredits liberal ideas. After all, liberals remain blind to the fact that true Darwinism disproves atheism, not Christianity.

Coulter specifically illustrates her point using Surgeon General C. Everett Koop's efforts to promote safe sex practices and condom uses rather than indicate that AIDS was predominately found among active gay male populations. This refutation of the science is one of several examples that Coulter uses to show that liberals claim to be scientific except when science flies in the face of their agenda.

She gets the liberal tactics and agenda so right at each turn. Her most publicized criticism is in the case of her statements of the 9/11 widows. This is the act of using victims as a way of silencing disagreement, something she calls liberal infallibility. It is this tactic that has been used over and over again against the Catholic Church. Lawyer funded organizations such as SNAP promote their teaching that all priests are pedophiles while they ...

    There does indeed appear to be an organized effort to destroy the American Catholic church. Anti-Catholic bigotry has always been winked at in this country. The greatest weapon against this constant has always been the Catholic elementary education system. Unfortunately the leaders of the American church appear to have thrown in the towel, perhaps motivated by cynicism, or perhaps they have completely forgotten Christ's message to "Bring unto me the children", the Catholic Hierarchy has abandoned Catholic elementary schools, closing one after another. Sadly this is nothing short of an act of surrender to the forces that seek to eliminate the Catholic faith in America, without the children, there is no future American Catholic church. The first Bishop of Maryland called upon all of America's Catholics to "First build a school" even before a church, that was over 150 years ago and the result was the phenomenal growth of the church in America. Now we close them, sell them off, and pretend that a few hours of CCD will sufficiently replace them. If the church is to survive in this country then we MUST once again make the children and schools the priority. Every church, Every rectory, every piece of property that is not being used as a school should be closed and sold before one more school is. The priorities are all wrong and no excuse suffices. Not one more dime should be given to any Catholic Charity until the pledge is commited to support FIRST and FOREMOST before anything else, the Catholic education of our youth. Without this commitment, the church will be seal its own fate and have no one, not the media, nor any cabal of leftist conspirators to blame, but themselves for allowing it to happen.

    Genesis 1:27, "So God made man in his own image".
    Genesis 2:7, "And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground."
    Genesis 2:21-22, "And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, …the Lord had taken from man, made he a woman, & brought her unto the man".
    From the above verses, it is obvious that God formed man/woman from dust instead of transforming apes to human beings.
