During his interview, Bishop Finn also said, “Dialogue is a means to an end. The purpose of dialogue has to be a change of heart. If I listen well and we each speak the truth, then the dialogue may have a chance of being productive. But I have to have some authentic principled goal in mind… Dialogue is important, but the question is fairly raised, ‘May we negotiate about things that are intrinsic evils?’ and I think the answer is no.” [reference]
Thank you for posting the photograph of official oppression. I’m sending it (with credit to Curt Jester) everywhere I can.
God bless Father Weslin. That’s a great photo.
The NDSAP (Notre Dame Socialist Abortion Party) sure have a funny idea of dialogue. Looks like thuggery to me.
Father Jenkins should be ashamed of himself. And defrocked. I mean, arresting people for peacefully praying the rosary? It’s absurd.
The US is becoming a police state – especially against Catholics.
God bless Father Weslin for his witness to the Faith.
Please don’t put particular blame on the police officers who were doing their job. If you watch the videos, they were being very careful of him and of other elderly protesters.
They might have been happy to arrest the protesters, or they might have been on their side. But they have a job to do, and they don’t have a choice.
They were just following orders?
They had a choice. So do we all.
Um, I don’t think that’s a photo from Notre Dame. If you look closely at the arm patches of the police officers in the photo, it seems that they’re Aurora police. That doesn’t fit the Notre Dame scenario.
As Clint Eastwood remarked in a film I can’t recall, “Saying it’s your job doesn’t make it right.”
