It appears to have been a week of Anti-Catholicism, taking into account the confrontation between Covington Catholic High School students attending the March for Life and various other demonstrators. Such a confrontation, thought to have been instigated by the Covington Catholic students, was actually instigated by the other demonstrators once everyone got to see the entire video of what had actually happened.
Many individuals have criticized the Covington Catholic students in the aftermath of the confrontation, although some backed off once the entire video showed all the details. Meanwhile, there have been threats and calls for violence against the students.
Sarah Beattie, an actress, comedian, and writer for Saturday Night Live, offered to perform fellatio on anyone who punched any of the Covington Catholic students in the face.
Former CNN host Reza Aslan has also advocated punching any of the students in the face. Aslan is also known for being an Islamic supremacist and apparently was also a supporter of the Ground Zero Mosque.
It should be noted that Covington Catholic High School had to be closed Tuesday due to various threats, and re-opened Wednesday amid tight security.
It should also be noted that an Owensboro Catholic High School student had an argument with one of the Indigenous People demonstrators, basically pointing out that lands had always been stolen (e.g. the many conquests throughout history). However, this incident appears to have been a sideshow to what has transpired with the Covington Catholic students.
And despite the fact that the other demonstrators set off the confrontation towards the Covington Catholic students (due to them wearing MAGA hats), it is possible these other demonstrators were also pro-abortion. This is nothing new considering the March for Life Rally in 2016 was targeted by counter-demonstrators, something I had mentioned in an article from that year.
Meanwhile, an individual showed up at Blessed Mother Catholic Church in Owensboro on Saturday holding a sign with a quote from First Corinthians. The individual (who refused to give his name) stated he was a former Catholic and handed out a booklet discussing salvation. The booklet was published by Rod and Staff Publishers, an Anabaptist group from Crockett, Kentucky.
It is not known why this individual decided to show up at Blessed Mother holding a sign and handing out material. But considering that he said he used to be Catholic suggests he had disagreed with the church’s teachings and became an Anabaptist. Apparently, he also harbors anti-Catholic prejudices.
Thus, liberalism and the sexual abuse scandal are not the only problems plaguing the Catholic Church these days.
