NYT Runs a Full-Page Ad, “Its Time To Quit The Catholic Church” | Creative Minority Report

NYT Runs A Full – Page Ad, “It’s Time To Quit The Catholic Church.”

The New York Times published and ad from the Freedom From Religion Foundation, which calls for nominal and liberal Catholics to abandon the Church.

The ad asks “Why are you propping up the pillars of a tyrannical and autocratic, woman-hating, sex-perverting, antediluvian Old Boys Club? ” and states “No self-respecting feminist, civil libertarian or progressive should cling to the Catholic faith.”

THIS WOULD NEVER BE ALLOWED IF IT ASKED MUSLIMS TO LEAVE ISLAM.  NEVER.

Nicki Minaj Defends ‘Roman Holiday’ Grammy Performance – Speakeasy – WSJ.

The Catholic League released a press release criticizing  Minaj. “Whether Minaj is possessed is surely an open question, but what is not in doubt is the irresponsibility of The Recording Academy. Never would they allow an artist to insult Judaism or Islam,” wrote the Catholic League. “It’s bad enough that Catholics have to fight for their rights vis-à-vis a hostile administration in Washington without also having to fend off attacks in the entertainment industry. The net effect, however, will only embolden Catholics, as well as their friends in other faith communities.””

 

Good answer, Donahue.

“Jordan has attended Catholic grade school, as well as high school, but declined to go through Confirmation, the holy sacrament of initiation into the Catholic Church. But her mother doesn’t believe Jordan decided to observe Ramadan because she’s looking to practice another religion.”

 

It is an interesting idea, but this girl is walking a fine line.  She doesn’t fully, truly understand her own faith if she declined to go through Confirmation and now is embracing ideas of Islam.

She needs to get Confirmed.
