PETITION: Stand with priest who faces Church penalties for saying “You can’t be a Catholic and a Democrat.”! Sign the petition here.
LACROSSE, Wisconsin, September 10, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – After a Catholic priest’s video message, “You cannot be Catholic & a Democrat. Period.,” went viral, his bishop appears to be taking measures to silence him even as public support for the courageous priest grows.
“[The] bishop does not want live-streaming of the Masses,” he told the faithful after his live-streamed Mass today. “This might be the very last live-stream of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass that I can give. That is unfortunate, but, the ‘manner and tone’ of the people opposing us is just that vile and despicable…it causes everyone to cave, and indeed it appears to be the case here.”
Altman also explained, “You’ll notice the children are not here today. And the reason they’re not here today is because of the ‘manner and tone’ of several vile and despicable comments and letters and emails and phone calls that were made both to the diocese and to my parish office after [Jesuit Father] James Martin urged his followers in public to contact us and complain.”
