AVERY DULLES Avery Robert Dulles S.J. (August 24, 1918 – December 12, 2008) was a Jesuit priest, theologian, cardinal of the Catholic Church and served as the Laurence J. McGinley Professor of Religion and Society at Fordham University from 1988 to 2008.[1] He was an internationally known author and lecturer. Early life Dulles was born in Auburn, New York, the son of John Foster Dulles, the future U.S. Secretary of State (for whom Washington Dulles International Airport is named), and Janet Pomeroy Dulles. His uncle was Director of Central Intelligence Allen Welsh Dulles. Both his great-grandfather John W. Foster and great-uncle Robert Lansing also served as U.S. Secretary of State. His paternal grandfather, Allen Macy Dulles, was a member of the faculty of Auburn Theological Seminary and published in the field of ecclesiology, to which the Catholic Dulles would likewise devote scholarly attention. He received his primary school education in New York City at the St. Bernard's School and attended seconda ...
So Bill DiBlasio, New York City's "illustrious" (NOT)" mayor has decided not to march in the annual St. Patrick's Day Parade. He says it's a protest because of the Catholic Church's stand on *** rights. He is the first mayor ever to not march in this parade. Even former Mayor Ed Koch, himself a *** man, ALWAYS marched in the St. Patrick's Day Parade... I predicted this about the election of such a progressive liberal as DiBlasio. New York City deserves everything it's going to get from this Sandinista loving man !!!
What is the possible cause of all this? It seems ALL denominations have this problem, but not all have been reported in the media. The Catholic Church Sex Abuse Stats Father Jonathan Morris is a Roman Catholic priest in New York City and he is also a news contributor for Fox News Channel. In a recent news story, "Father Jonathon" stated that heavy media scrutiny forced the Catholic Church to open the books on how many sex abuse cases there have been. Since 1950, 13,000 credible accusations were brought against Catholic priests; this averages 228 cases per year. Sex Abuse in Protestant Churches Three insurance companies in the United States that provide liability coverage for 165,000 Protestant churches revealed data to the Associated Press that they typically receive 260 reports every year of children being sexually abused by Protestant clergy or other staff. If these and the Catholic statistics are accurate, then on average, there are 32 more sex abuse cases per year in the Protestant church. As Father . ...
The Venerable Pierre Toussaint: You were a former slave from the French colony of Saint-Domingue who was brought to New York City by your owners in 1787. There you eventually gained your freedom and became a noted philanthropist to the poor of the city. Freed in 1807, after the death of your mistress, you took the surname Toussaint in honor of the hero of the Haitian Revolution which established that nation. After your marriage in 1811, Toussaint and your wife performed many charitable works, opening their home as an orphanage, employment bureau, and a refuge for travelers. You contributed funds and helped raise money to build St. Patrick's Old Cathedral, New York on Mulberry Street. You were considered "one of the leading black New Yorkers of his day."Your ghostwritten memoir was published in 1854. Due to your devout and exemplary life, the Catholic Church has been investigating his life for possible canonization and in 1996 you were declared "Venerable" by Blessed Pope John Paul II, the second step in t ...
Everyone and their uncle and their aunt is invited to Hancock for my mom's 101st Birthday. She was born Mary Taggart in New Haven CT, June 29, 1912. Her dad was Arther Faye Taggart who taught mining engineering at Columbia University in New York City. He met my grandmother Ruth Field at Stanford University, where Ruth was Secretary to the President. (So, my mom's parents met at a university, and my dad's parents met while they were both working at a mental hospital in Camden New York. This is the perfect recipe for a mad scientist!) My dad's mom Rose O'Connor was Head Nurse, while Fred Dillon was an orderly and also served as a fireman in Williamstown NY. They were active in the Catholic Church, my dad was the bell toller on Sundays. But he later became atheist or agnostic, as was my mom. My parents both became senior editors at The Reader's Digest in Pleasantville NY (see the movie Pleasantville, even though it has nothing to do with this and is entirely off-topic). Anyway I am extremely proud of my fol ...
A group of Catholics (& allies) who support LGBT equality today engaged in a quiet vigil outside of St. Patricks Cathedral in New York City in response to recent comments made by Timothy Dolan who is both the leader of the Catholic Church in NY and the USA. In a recent article Dolan implied that LGBT Catholics are welcome to attend mass but only if they wash their hands before doing so (you know, we are tainted). The 'dirty hands' vigil involved presenting to St Patrick's with charcoal-stained hands in a silent statement of opposition to the church's ongoing discrimination against LGBT people. There was a strong police presence which was totally out of proportion to the size and peaceful nature of the event. The participants were informed by an LGBT police liaison and a representative of St Patrick's that unless they washed their hands they would not be able to enter the church building for the Sunday service. If they refused to wash their hands and attempted to enter the building they were told they wo . ...
DAILY QUOTE!!! "Though the Catholic Church provided the majority of America’s private schools for generations, many other faith traditions ran substantial numbers of schools. Episcopalians, Calvinists, Jews, Lutherans, Presbyterians, and Quakers all had schools by the mid-1800s. By the turn of the twentieth century, more faith communities developed networks of schools, including the Christian Reformed Church, Seventh-day Adventists, and Greek Orthodox. America’s cities were home to the lion’s share of these schools. About 360,000 students attended New York City’s Catholic schools in 1960, almost 40 percent of the city’s public school enrollment. Lutheran schools became prevalent in the upper Midwest. Jewish day schools proliferated, especially in New York City."
View Bishop Sullivan's installation ceremony Bishop Dennis Sullivan set the tone for his years as Camden’s eighth bishop with the word Alleluia. Bishop Sullivan — who served as a pastor of a multicultural parish for years in New York City — said the word Alleluia, universally associated with joy, needs no translation. “It’s everybody’s language.”The word is not used in the Roman liturgy during Lent, so at his installation Mass in St. Agnes Church, Blackwood, on Tuesday, Feb. 12 — the day before Ash Wednesday — he said that as a “final fling” before the beginning of Lent, he wanted to “let the Alleluia ring out.” He offered an Alleluia for the Diocese of Camden, which just observed its 75th anniversary; to “our priests, now my brothers”; to Bishop Joseph Galante; to Jesus, who showed that true religion is not found in rules and regulations but in the heart; to the Catholic Church, currently observing a Year of Faith; to Pope Benedict; and to all who minister in Camden. “And, ...

Some strange facts about the Christmas holiday are presented below: The first commercial Christmas card was produced and sold in London in 1843. Americans send an estimated 1.5 billion Christmas cards each year. The song "Jingle Bells" was copyrighted in 1857. "Deck The Halls" is even older - from the late 18th century. A large Christmas tree is traditionally placed every year in Rockefeller Center (Manhattan, New York City). The tallest tree placed in Rockefeller Center was a 100 foot Norway spruce from Connecticut in 1999. The most expensive Christmas tree was decorated in the United Arab Emirates in 2010 at an estimated cost of over $11 million. The practice of Christmas gift giving was once banned by the Catholic Church. It was suspected that this tradition had roots in Paganism. Americans buy 25-30 million real trees and 8-12 million artificial trees to decorate each year. There are two towns in the United States with the name of Santa Claus but only one named North Pole. They are located in Geor ...
A Great Lady: On this date (September 14th) in 1879, Margaret Sanger (née Higgins), was born. Watching her mother die at age 48 of tuberculosis after bearing 11 children changed not only the course of Margaret's life, but world history. As a young child, Margaret was introduced to the power of the Catholic Church when the local priest locked the doors of the town hall to prevent agnostic Robert Ingersoll from speaking in Corning, N.Y. Margaret wrote in her autobiography of the spellbinding experience of hearing Ingersoll speak in the woods instead. She herself would later personally repeatedly experience being locked out of public halls, even countries, under Catholic pressure. Her experience doing obstetrical nursing of the poor in New York City as a young mother herself galvanized her conviction that women had the right to control fertility. Sanger's turning point was witnessing the death of patient Sadie Sachs from a second illegal abortion. When the 28-year-old mother had pleaded with her doctor for ...

New York City, N.Y., Jul 17, 2012 / 04:41 pm (CNA).- The U.S. and other Western nations are “mission territory” for the Catholic Church in modern times, Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan of New York stressed in a July 17 online posting.
I feel this country has not reached the peak as this article states. "Anti-Catholic animus in the United States reached a peak in the nineteenth century when the Protestant population became alarmed by the influx of Catholic immigrants. Some American Protestants, having an increased interest in prophecies regarding the end of time, claimed that the Catholic Church was the *** of Babylon in the Book of Revelation.[29] The resulting "nativist" movement, which achieved prominence in the 1840s, was whipped into a frenzy of anti-Catholicism that led to mob violence, the burning of Catholic property, and the killing of Catholics.[30] For example, the Philadelphia Nativist Riot, Bloody Monday, the Orange Riots in New York City in 1871 and 1872,[31] and the Ku Klux Klan-ridden South discriminated against Catholics.[32] This violence was fed by claims that Catholics were destroying the culture of the United States. The nativist movement found expression in a national political movement called the Know-Nothing Pa . ...

Editor's note: James Carville is a Democratic strategist who serves as a political contributor for CNN, appearing frequently on "The Situation Room" as well as other programs on all CNN networks. He and Stan Greenberg are the co-authors of "It's the Middle Class Stupid" to be published in July by Penguin Press. (CNN) -- Let's imagine that yesterday there was a front page story in The New York Times that read the following: "The recent economic crisis left the top 1% of Americans in 2010 with no more wealth than in the early 1990s, erasing almost two decades of accumulated prosperity, the Federal Reserve said Monday." "A hypothetical family richer than the median net worth of the top 1% of the nation's families had a net worth of $77.3 million in 2010, compared with $126.4 million in 2007, the Fed said.

A man is struck by a bus on a busy street in New York City. He lies dying on the sidewalk as a crowd of spectators gather around. "A priest. Somebody get me a priest!" the man gasps. A policeman checks the crowd - no priest, no minister, no man of God of any kind. "A PRIEST, PLEASE!" the dying man says again. Then out of the crowd steps a little old Jewish man of at least eighty years of age. "Mr. Policeman," says the man, "I'm not a priest. I'm not even a Catholic. But for fifty years now I'm living behind St. Mary's Catholic Church on Third Avenue, and every night I'm listening to the Catholic litany. Maybe I can be of some comfort to this man." The policeman agreed and brought the octogenarian over to where the dying man lay. He kneels down, leans over the injured and says in a solemn voice: "B - 4. I - 19. N - 38. G - 54. O - 72."
The Relationship Between Christianity and Capitalism By Bill Moyers, Reader Supported News 22 April 12 Just as, 50 years ago, liberalism was the vital center of our politics, our religious landscape then was dominated by mainline Protestants and a Catholic Church becoming less Roman and more American every year. One of the most symbolic events occurred in 1958 when President Dwight D. Eisenhower laid the cornerstone for the new headquarters of the National Council of Churches here in New York City. Before a crowd of 30,000, Eisenhower quoted George Washington, who described religion as the firm foundation of the country's moral life. That was the decade America put God on our paper money and in the Pledge of Allegiance. And though the churchly DNA often fostered racism, anti-Semitism, bigotry and Cold War dogmatism, many thought biblical religion, in its various incarnations, was the engine driving the American future. But then, says Ross Douthat, American Christianity went off the rails - and now threate ...
