Cutting of pastor's role called 'vindictive'

Full story: Newsday

For 32 years, the Rev. Robert E. Mason celebrated a children's Mass at Our Lady of Lourdes in Massapequa Park that attracted a loyal following among some families at the ultraconservative parish.

Hey Frank, No Anthony the EM last week and this week. And you know he wasn't at last week's Men's Club meeting when there was a very special guest speaker! And he would have loved the topic of discussion-sex. And not just sex but homosexuality! Maybe he can get the notes from someone. If and when he posts again we know it'll be Lou you're a ____, Frank go ___ yourself, Itchy you're a ____Catholic, boring Princess,...etc. Same limited vocabulary, same rage, same old profanity. See the light Anthony and embrace the truth. Free yourself from all that rage inside. Then maybe you wouldn't have to take it out on others, especially women. Be the Catholic man you were made to be. And a true EM.

Anthony's level of maturity would have hindered him from understanding the topic.

It's the "men's club",not the "angry, profanity -obsessed pro-pedophile adolescent club"

W.H.G, Lou, Frank, Toni,
I believe we should not blame "Itchy Watch" for his views, as he is getting them, and has observed what the leaders, and teachers of our faith have caused. He, basically is a product of the VTII councils confused changes, which were not for the better, but had tried to change our religion into a quasi-protestant religion, rather than standing firm on our heritage, and the Catholic Catechism, and the practice of over 2000 years in order to modernize our religion to suite the wants of the new generation. Probably to bring in new catholics into the church, but has caused confusion, and loss of respect for the Mass, and the Church and its leaders. Any teacher that teaches that everything that is done is okay, as long as it is done with love, is leading the flock astray, and will have to answer for their false teachings. Remember, our Lord said not to want to become teachers, as that road is much harder, and restrictive, and those that are teachers will have more to answer for, and if their teachings are not according to our Lord, then they will be judged more harshly because of those that they have lead astray, and caused them to sin. "Itchy Watch" has been raging against us because he fears that what he is doing, according to what he was shown and taught, may not be correct. Just as our inner spirit lets us know if something we are doing, that we excuse with our minds, is truly wrong, and as much as we try to sanction it as being "Okay", we know from our spirit it is wrong.
So that in the spirit of Catholics, let us not demean "Itchy Watch", but instead only chide him for his cursing, and slanderous posts, and better yet just <Ignore False Catholic>, as that will defuse his bad post, and hopefully he will understand and come to terms with what he has done.
As long as he goes to a spiritual director, that leads him astray, he will never realize his actions are not those of a true Catholic. Just look at what Cardinal Dolan is doing by inviting Obama to the Catholic fund raising, and tell me , what signal is he sending by doing this? I sent him an email telling him that his actions were same as "inviting Hitler to a fund raiser for the concentration cams". How weak of him. No matter what his reasons are. Cardinal John O'Connor did not invite then president Bill Clinton to the Al Smith dinner because of his Pro-Abortion stand.
I will post the petition that is circulating around for Cardinal Dolan to dis-invite Obama.

Wait until you read this...

Moments ago the ACLU decided to jump into our lawsuit challenging the HHS mandate on behalf of a private Catholic business owner in St. Louis. Not surprisingly, they are defending Secretary Sebelius and her attack on religious freedom.

But get this...

The ACLU is arguing that any business owner that opposes the HHS mandate is no different than a racist shop owner that refused to serve African Americans in the past!

You read that correctly.

If you refuse to provide unlimited birth control, sterilizations, and abortion drugs -- for free -- you are a modern day segregationist!

In their brief filed with the court, the ACLU argues that providing free birth control and abortion drugs are necessary to allow women to fully participate in society. They conveniently don't mention that these drugs and medicines are already widely available at virtually every drugstore in America. But that's not enough. We must be forced to pay for them too!

Furthermore, the ACLU argues that the HHS mandate "minimally -- if at all -- " burdens our right to religious liberty.

This is crazy talk!

The irony of the ACLU comparing Catholics to racist bigots is simply laughable. The Catholic Church has been an integral part of the fight for civil rights for African Americans for decades. Our Church even excommunicated politicians who refused to respect civil rights in the South.

Yet now the ACLU is rushing to defend the billion-dollar abortion industry that intentionally murders untold numbers of African American children every year!

But it's worse than you think.

If the ACLU believes private business owners that want religious freedom are bigots, then what do they think about the Catholic Church?

The stakes in this case could not be higher. The ACLU has now teamed up with President Obama and Secretary Sebelius in an attempt to snuff out our faith. They are now unfairly and shockingly comparing us to segregationists .

Today bring to Me the Meek and Humble Souls and the Souls of Little Children,

and immerse them in My mercy. These souls most closely resemble My Heart. They strengthened Me during My bitter agony. I saw them as earthly Angels, who will keep vigil at My altars. I pour out upon them whole torrents of grace. I favor humble souls with My confidence.

Most Merciful Jesus, You yourself have said, "Learn from Me for I am meek and humble of heart." Receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart all meek and humble souls and the souls of little children. These souls send all heaven into ecstasy and they are the heavenly Father's favorites. They are a sweet-smelling bouquet before the throne of God; God Himself takes delight in their fragrance. These souls have a permanent abode in Your Most Compassionate Heart, O Jesus, and they unceasingly sing out a hymn of love and mercy.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon meek souls, upon humble souls, and upon little children who are enfolded in the abode which is the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. These souls bear the closest resemblance to Your Son. Their fragrance rises from the earth and reaches Your very throne. Father of mercy and of all goodness, I beg You by the love You bear these souls and by the delight You take in them: Bless the whole world, that all souls together may sing out the praises of Your mercy for endless ages. Amen.

Obama's invitation to the Al Smith Charity Dinner.
The Archdiocese answer to "Rescinding Obama's invitation to the Al Smith Catholic Charity Dinner. Why the leaders, of the Church are the reason so many Catholics are confused as to what is right, and what is wrong.
Mathew 21:12 And Jesus entered the temple and drove out all those who were buying and selling in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who were selling doves.
What would Jesus do? Just as he did with the money-lenders the temple in Jerusalem. You probably would have gotten the same response from the Cardinal on inviting Adolph Hitler to a dinner for charitable donations for the victims in the concentration camps. If you can stomach it, listen to the answers from the Archdiocese of New York on the Obama invitation Now you know how Obama won the presidential election, and 55% of catholics voted for this modern day "Anti-Christ"
Remember our Lord said "Jesus said that no one could serve two masters and that you couldn't serve God and money at the same time." Whom is the Archdiocese serving? GOD, or Money?

<quoted text>
Frank, his inane attempts are really funny. Did you know that Taboo words can be used for a variety of reasons, including to achieve a specific reaction from others. Swearing injects a direct, succinct emotional component into the discussion, usually in order to express frustration, anger or surprise (up to two-thirds of our swearing is for just such expressions). These insulting swears can be name calling or wishing someone harm, so it’s no wonder they are often a defining feature of hate speech, verbal abuse, sexual harassment and obscene phone calls, and "stalking". I guess the amplified demeaning of one's self, and lowering themselves to attract attention is a sign of a troubled individual. Usually from a childhood that had frustrated themselves with the inability of being able to change what can not be changed. Most normal people are able to ignore and not enter into the situations that inflame themselves, that would be the normal response of a mature person.
To consistently put their finger into the fire inorder to garner attention, is indeed a sign of a troubled person. Whether because of something in their personal life, or fears, or frustration in their daily beings, would take many years of psychological evaluation, and may inflame the person by bringing out that which they refuse to acknowledge. As a normal balanced person would not put their fingers into the flame, so too should the frustrated person avoid, for their own sakes, entering into that situation that causes them to hurt themselves mentally.
Virtually all people swear, and people swear pretty consistently throughout their lifetime — from the moment they can speak to the day they die. Swearing is almost a universal constant in most people’s lives. Research, according to Jay, has shown we swear on average from 0.3% to 0.7% of the time — a tiny but significant percentage of our overall speech (frequently-used personal pronouns occur at approximately 1.0% rate in speech). Swearing is more common than you might think. But personality research suggests that people who swear more, not surprisingly, score higher on traits such as extraversion, dominance, hostility and Type A personalities. Swearing is not just for the uneducated or people of a lower socioeconomic class — it knows no social boundaries in its expression, other than the educated person that lowers themselves to the lower socioeconomic stature, do more harm to themselves than others. The reasoning being that the intelligent person attributes the curser more as a person with whom they would not allow themselves to associate with.
Dr T Jay PHD notes that swear words (or taboo words, as he calls them) can include sexual references (f..k), those that are profane or blasphemous (goddamn), scatological or disgusting objects (shit), animal names (pig, ass), ethnic/racial/gender slurs (fag), ancestral allusions (bastard), substandard vulgar terms and offensive slang. Taboo words can be mildly offensive to extremely offensive, and people will often use a more mild euphemism to replace a swear word when in mixed (or unknown) company.
Your posts do not deserve any added attention, but to <IGNORE
False Catholic pro-Abortionists> I wonder if Msgr knows about this since he was instrumental in stopping his sister from having an abortion according to his own speech years ago.
I guess "Itchy Watch" will go to any lengths to demean his own self. I wonder why he hates himself so much??? Maybe its the hot weather that has him losing his mind, or his acknowledged anti-Catholic beliefs. What a shame.
Have a good Sunday Frank,

SNAP is the pro-child anti- clerical organization devoted to seeing justice for the victims of your "devotees" of the "lifestyle" you so stoically defend.
Now stop stamping you feet and trying to be a tantrum throwing adolescent. Your a grown man making an absolooute spectacle of yourself. And an EM at OLL!! Shameful behavior. Get some advice on how to behave as a father and husband. Maybe Jim can help you with that .
Looks like we struck a nerve, Frankie G. Not only obsessed with pedophilia, but now vehemently defending SNAP. Very bizarre. Very disturbing. You really should seek some help. Maybe somebody other than the SNAP folks.

Affordable Care Act Prohibits Gender Identity Discrimination
Statement by NCLR Federal Policy Director Maya Rupert, Esq.


(Washington D.C., August 6, 2012)—The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has confirmed that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) protects against discrimination on the basis of gender identity.

The clarification, issued earlier this month, came in response to a letter submitted by NCLR and several other LGBT organizations. The letter from HHS confirmed that the anti-discrimination protections in section 1557 of the ACA, which prohibits discrimination based on sex, include discrimination on the basis of gender identity.

This announcement means people who face discrimination or are being denied access to any federally funded health service or program on the basis of gender identity may file a complaint with the Office of Civil Rights at HHS. This protection applies to all healthcare facilities and programs that receive any funds from the federal government. This includes any hospitals, clinics, and mental health facilities that receive Medicare and Medicaid funding.

Statement by NCLR Federal Policy Director Maya Rupert, Esq.:

"Transgender people face severe discrimination in healthcare settings and are often denied care completely. This announcement affirms that all patients in federally funded health care settings must be treated equally and may not be denied care simply because of who they are. We are grateful to HHS for clarifying this important policy and providing transgender people with the security of knowing they are included in the administration’s commitment to the health and well-being of all Americans."


The National Center for Lesbian Rights is a national legal organization committed to advancing the civil and human rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people and their families through litigation, public policy advocacy, and public education.

Looks like Anthony has returned with a vengeance!
As usual, the adolescent behavior we all come to expect from Anthony.
Did anyone other than Lou and I notice the bizarre occurrences at Jim's mass today?
Hey Anthony,why the big laugh while on the altar with the Pastor? Soooo inappropriate!
Anthony: make sure you load up on the chances "to win a dinner with Msgr. Lisante!"
That will really "send a tickle" your leg.
How about the ridiculous morons in the back of church selling chances for the masqurerade ball, with MASKS ON! The church is turning into a bafoon central.
Sorry I missed the "60th birthday bash reunion " for my alma mater,
Maria Regina. It was 42 years since 1970 and my friend Jim is still trying to sell himself younger than he is.(:

See you at the wedding in September. Will you be the EM at your son's wedding? If so, please make sure you don't distribute communion to toddlers.. Your whole family
will be embarrassed--
Just "looking out for you!"
Always in my daily prayers,
Your pal-- Frank
