What is the San Francisco VOTF’s Real Agenda?

By Fred Martinez

The pro-gay San Francisco Chronicle recently printed an article about a controversial “Catholic” organization including an email address and phone number on how to get in contact with the group, which the newspaper described as not being “fringe.”

The group is Voice of the Faithful (VOTF) that is opposed nationally by Faithful Voice. Spokeswoman for Faithful Voice, Carol McKinley claims the organization is “profoundly” deceptive.

“VOTF is controversial as a result of the profound deception of the individuals in leadership and teaching positions. While they deny their affiliation with Call to Action, VOTF's founding members Jan Leary, Fr. Walter Cuenin and others are keynote speakers at the Spring Call to Action Conference, right along with Joanna Manning of "Catholics for Free Choice", an abortion advocacy group,” McKinley said.

“In VOTFs meetings with the Bishops, they purport they are "centrist" on the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. But …

Do Typos Mean More to VOTF Fanatics than Facts?

So typos mean more to you than facts. I assume you mean McBrien supporting VOTF and the gay agenda is only guilt by association. Would VOTF’s Priest of Integrity Thomas Doyle’s gay spin convince you. (Please read below.)Father forgiven them for they know not what they do. I'll pray for you.

God bless you,

Fred

A friend sent your sloppy attempt to smear VOTF by identifying it with the long campaign by homosexuals to take over everything from most federal research money FOR its signature diseases, to the Catholic Church. You will manage to persuade nobody by dragging McBrien in, as well. If you don't even know the medium is The Tidings, and not Tiding or the Tiding, what else is it you don't know in pushing your own cutesy little anything but hidden agenda?

At the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Boston for several years innocent Catholics were verbally and emotionally harassed every Sunday for doing nothing more than attending mass. Some were called "The Cardinal's Whore", they were called traitors, pedophiles. They were threatened, they were told which door they could and could not enter and exit. Children were screamed at by men with bullhorns Catholic children and adults were harassed.

The organizer of these protests was a certain Marshall Ganz a democratic party strategist and the architect of the Barack Obama campaign. He was also seen outside the cathedral along with Mary Jo Bane of the Clinton Administration who is also a close associate of Hillary Clinton.Both teach at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government. Harvard supplied the media equiptment for the protes…

How CBS, ABC, NBC and VOTF Suppress Free Speech

By Fred Martinez

CBS insider Bernard Goldberg, in his book "Bias," compared the "media elite" to the "old Soviet Union" dictators as well as to Mafia bosses. The "News Mafia," as Goldberg calls the media, recently let its "reporters” know that the regime will not allow dissidence against its ally, the gay movement. The recent crackdown on dissenters is national, international and regional:

Sam Donaldson and Cokie Roberts shouted George Will down on ABC's "This Week" because he tried to state that the vast majority of priest sexual abusers are homosexuals. NewsMax writer Phil Brennan reported, "After three or four attempts to get a word in edgewise, Will gave up."

Pope John Paul II's spokesman Dr. Joaquin Navarro-Valls was greeted with a wave of protest at the Vatican. The Jewish World Review said Navarro-Valls received this greeting because he made the "link between homosexuality and sexual abuse by priests.&…

Why VOTF's Solution to the Catholic Scandal is Wrong?

Why VOTF's Solution to the Catholic Scandal is Wrong?
By Fred Martinez

The New York Times, Boston Globe as well as newspapers in Ireland and on the European landmass have recently been promoting Voice of the Faithful (VOTF) as having a solution to the Catholic Church’s sex-abuse scandal.

The VOTF solution to the scandal is to democratize the “authoritarian” church and have the bishops cede authority to lay Catholics.

For this group “democracy” appears to mean that the Bishops should cede their authority to lay “Catholics” such as possibly pro-gay abortion advocates like Leon Panetta, Bill Clinton's former chief of staff, or Robert Bennett who was Clinton’s hardnosed lawyer in the Paula Jones sex scandal.

If that’s the case then VOTF is too late because the US bishops have already attempted to cede these Clintonian “sex abuse experts” authority on their 12-member National Review Board to deal with the sexual abuse scandals.

It’s obvious that groups such as VOTF- who are calling …

What is the Real Agenda of the National Catholic Reporter and VOTF?

By Fred Martinez

On February 20, the National Catholic Reporter (NCR) dissented from definitive Catholic teaching by endorsing homosexual marriage. The Catechism of the Catholic Church states that “homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered…[and] under no circumstances can they be approved.”

The “Catholic” lay operated national newsweekly said, "The ruling by the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts allowing same-sex civil marriage is a beneficial step along the path of human understanding and human rights."

As a Special Commentary Columnist for NewsMax during the height of the Catholic scandal in 2002, I first became acquainted with NCR because of the lay-group Voice of the Faithful (VOTF).

In the summer of 2002, I received this e-mail from a NewsMax reader:

“Could you please direct me to a reliable assessment of the group Voice of the Faithful? A local ‘chapter’ is meeting this afternoon in Nashville, and it has been characterized by a local priest as ‘just conservative Ca…

Is VOTF “Anti-Catholic?”

Is VOTF “Anti-Catholic?”
By Fred Martinez

Back on Oct. 11, 2002 Archbishop John Myers of Newark, N.J. wrote “Voice of the Faithful [VOTF]...has used the current crisis in the Church as a springboard for presenting an agenda that is anti-Church and, ultimately, anti-Catholic.”

Myers is considered one of the most pro-life and orthodox members of the American Bishops. When bishop of Peoria, IL, he published a pastoral letter calling it "morally illicit" for Catholics to vote for pro-abortion candidates.

In the October column called “A Voice Not Rooted in Faith” printed in the Catholic Advocate, the archdiocesan newspaper of Newark, the Archbishop said that VOTF “has as its purposes: to act as a cover for dissent...and to openly attack the Church hierarchy. Myers wrote:

“[A]ltering Church teaching on sexual morality, and defiance of the apostolic authority that has guided the Church since its founding 2,000 years ago by Our Lord Jesus Christ, have all found a place in the ranks of V…
