Persecution – faithful nun barred from Charlotte by homothugs April 2, 2014

I suspect we’ll be seeing more and more of this, which is pathetic, because so much of this is just stupid tribalism of the most base kind.  People who 2 or 3 or 5  years ago were opposed to the sham sodomite rights agenda, or at least disinterested, realized they can signal their “elite status” by parroting opinions fed to them by the dominant media.  What is stunning is the degree of passion involved – from a matter that was on essentially no one’s radar ten or twelve years ago, to sodo-rights today being a matter of dire cultural import!  And that passion comes from tribalism and insecurity – a desire to signal one is on the “winning” team and fear that one someone just might find out that a year to two or three ago this now passionate supporter then thought sodo-marriage a bad thing.

Is this not one sick freakin world we live in now?  Where being opposed to perversion now makes your the freak?!?

To the details: a nun of the Dominicans of St. Cecilia in Nashville, TN – a solid orthodox order – gave a talk on certain aspects of marriage, the family, and chastity to a group of Catholic school students in Charlotte, NC.  This talk was based on theology of the body, which means it was hardly hardcore Thomism and moral theology from Liguori.  Leaving aside our personal opinions regarding ToB, this talk also apparently reiterated some aspects of Church belief regarding “homosexuality.”  Remember, these were Catholic school students.

Did most students receive the talk well?  Were most parents supportive of their Catholic school students, at one of the more orthodox parishes in Charlotte, getting basic, completely unremarkable formation?

In a word, no:

Parents of Charlotte Catholic High School students have been invited to a meeting at the school at 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 2, after an online petition started by a student questioned the views of a speaker at a recent assembly who spoke on human sexuality. 

The petition was launched in response to a talk by Sister Jane Dominic Laurel, a Dominican from Nashville, Tenn., and a frequent speaker in the Diocese of Charlotte. She spoke to an all-school assembly March 21 on “Masculinity and Femininity: Difference and Gift,” which explains Catholic teaching about gender using Blessed Pope John Paul II’s Theology of the Body. [So, again, this talk probably quoted the 1990s catechism and used very gentle terms when discussing certain sexual sins, including the sins of sodom and gomorrah.  But anything less that flowery, effusive praise for that particular perversion is, today, tantamount to secular heresy]

Sister Jane’s March 21 address to students, which was arranged by Father Kauth, was based on a series of instructional videos she created for Aquinas College in Nashville where she is an associate professor. She has a doctorate in sacred theology from the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas in Rome.

Speaking last week about the purpose of the student assembly, Father Arnsparger said, “Our students are bombarded with confusing messages about sexuality. Our task in religious formation is always to help people understand the meaning of love and relationships.”

According to the www.newmanconnection.com website where Sister Jane’s videos are posted, her presentations focus on the differences between the genders, the role of the family in nurturing each child’s unique gifts, the importance of real friendships and emotional intimacy, and the impacts of contemporary culture and the media on our concepts of sexuality.

School officials said Sister Jane spent about half of her hour-long talk on homosexuality, including attributing a correlation between the decline of fatherhood in America and the rise in homosexuality.

It was that portion of her talk that sparked the petition and a counter petition, followed by emails, comments in social media and blogs. One email asked readers to contact school and diocesan leadership to express their support for Sister Jane. School officials said a majority of the emails they have received oppose the views expressed by Sister Jane.

Of course they do!  Because we live a sexular pagan sewer!

It turns out, in fact, that opposition was so intense, Sister Laurel had to cancel her planned conference next month.

Thuggery, it seems, pays, and handsomely.

So, let’s see: a Catholic nun gives a talk on some basic Catholic beliefs – from a very modern perspective – including the fact that so-called homosexuals are profoundly disordered (which can be proven by numerous means without appeal to any authority), and the result is people – ostensible Catholics – just beside themselves with sexular pagan scandal.  I would like to say I am surprised, but I am not.  Your average “Catholic” today is a manifest heretic.  Worse, they are an avowed enemy of the faith.

We can see what kind of opposition truly orthodox, let alone traditional, priests and religious face.  When a sweet little nun (a real one, not a fake agent of leftist agitprop) become the target of parental outrage and statements that SHE is the one that is somehow deranged – from Catholic school students! – you know we are truly well and far into some demonic territory.

Get ready for much worse. They intend to make us suffer for convicting them of their sin.  And the worst treatment of all will come from self-proclaimed “fellow Catholics.”  But we must always remember, if they’d had all the graces, good formation, and benefits we’d have, they’d be way holier than I am, whereas if I’d lived their life, I’d be way worse off than they are.

Clinging to Christ is the only thing to help us through the coming dark times.

Thanks to reader MFG.  I see Fr. Z and 18,000 other sites have already covered this, which I didn’t know because I hardly read anyone anymore!  What good am I, then?!?

I read this story. I am disgusted with this. I hope the bishop of that diocese doesn’t waffle. Let’s pray for the nun and priest.

Well, I come here to read the news, but I think more importantly I come hear to read your perspective on things. I am also interested in the comments left in your com box. I like a variety of sources, and a variety of input, from people I think are on solid ground, sinners like me, but are still faithful Catholics despite the odds.

To be truthful, I never thought of you as the Catholic Drudge Report, breaking things in real time, no, and would not want it any other way.

Yes, this is a disgraceful piling-on against a nun who is teaching *gasp* Catholic beliefs, but predictable, because if you are engaged in a perversion, adultery, etc the last thing you want is someone making you feel guilty!

Funny – Catholic Drudge – this is how I think of Pewsitter (the best Catholic news aggregator for me, at least – and they pick up Tantum’s pieces, also).

I also saw this story about the Charlotte H.S. and the backlash to the sister’s talk. Something similar is going on at California Catholic Daily – they have been covering how the homosexual lobby has infiltrated 4 Catholic high schools there. http://cal-catholic.com/wordpress/2014/03/31/our-mother-who-is-within-us/

I skimmed through the comments at each of their reports – for one (I forget which), the majority of comments were left by the high school students who were outraged that this website would call out the open homosexuals’ involvement in the schools (some in theology departments, no less). The lack of formation in these students is astounding. And some comments from their parents, as well, supportive of the teachers and their lifestyles. Absolutely astounding. It’s like they’ve never been taught Church doctrine or her teachings, ever. Wait…I guess that’s pretty much it, isn’t it.

I thought homilists were “obsessing” in their teaching on abortion, contraception and SSM… How could these students possibly be so ignorant?

5. Lorra - April 3, 2014

Haha! and here I thought I was original in my description of Pewsitters as a Catholic Drudge Report! 🙂

“Is this not one sick freakin world we live in now? ”

Yes. It is a sewer, and it is increasingly hard for me to keep my head above it. To be honest, I can’t take it anymore. The evil that surrounds us is intense.

If the Pope and bishops see this and don’t think that the state of affairs in the Church is not horrific..then they are on the road to perdition.
But it’s ok “who am I to judge?” and “It’s a new springtime in the Church!!!”

in another site, i found this. just as i expected, sister had to cancel her talks, and she had to go on sabbatical, because there is great concern for her safety.

please read the comments section

I emailed Sr. Jane’s superior, Sr. Mary Sarah (srmsarah@aquinascollege.edu)-President of Aquinas College, yesterday (Saturday) in support of Sr. Jane. To my surprise, I received a reply:
“Sister Jane Dominic has only tried to spread the good news of Jesus Christ to a world in need of healing. The Dominican Sisters and the Aquinas College community are in complete support of Sister Jane Dominic. We have concerns for Sister’s personal safety at this time. Please keep this intention in your prayers.”
