CHURCH AT WAR: CANCELED PRIESTS FIGHTING BACK

The spiritual front in the Culture War is taking place where you would expect it: in the Church. One historical perspective holds that the Western Roman Church was doomed from the Great Schism of 1054 onwards. Protestantism eventually put paid to the entire Christian project in the West. But today, with postmodern wokeness at the point of delivering the coup de grace, there are priests in the US fighting back. 



April 6, 2021 Fr. Altman Unleashed on Cream City Catholic.

Once can see how Father James may have ruffled some hyper sensitive, woke feathers. 

Fr. James Altman of St. James the Less Parish in La Crosse, Wisconsin was asked to resign by his bishop following his controversial remarks that Catholic Democrats must “repent” or “face the fires of hell,” according to America Magazine. Altman has also turned his criticisms toward U.S. bishops, asserting their “ineffectiveness” to stand against modern government’s “godlessness” — a godlessness so profound that it arguably persecuted houses of worship during the COVID-19 pandemic — and for their embrace of COVID-19 vaccines.

Altman says he is being targeted for his willingness to preach “the truth” and speak out against “all the evil that confronts us,” the report adds. While Altman’s stances are controversial, it’s safe to say the standard for preaching has significantly softened over the years, so much that even shedding light on sexual misconduct allegations can lead to termination.

In the 2020s, not even the Catholic Church is safe from “wokeness,” but after receiving leftist backlash for being too “right-wing” or “conservative” — some priests have decided to take matters into their own hands. The Coalition of Canceled Priests emerged earlier this year in a collaborative response to “secular corruptions” plaguing the clergy of one of history’s most predominant institutions.
