Kresta Comments: A Turning Point in San Francisco?

  • Description: Progressives set their crosshairs on San Francisco recently when Archbishop Cordileone announced that Catholic school teachers in his diocese were required to stay faithful to Church teaching while they were in the classroom. The archbishop was accused of fostering a culture of intolerance and hatred. Sam Singer was hired to start a smear campaign against him. 100 so-called “prominent Catholics” published a letter in the San Francisco Chronicle calling on Pope Francis to replace the archbishop with someone who is “committed to our values and teachings.” Despite these efforts, it seems locals still support the archbishop. A poll by the Chronicle showed that 78% of respondents feel Cordileone is upholding the values of the Church and should not be replaced. Al has thoughts on the latest developments.

Kresta Comments: The New “Gotcha” Question

  • Description: In the last presidential election, Republican candidates were frequently asked if they wanted to outlaw contraception. This was intended to confuse voters and make the candidates trip up, when the real issue was simply whether employers should be forced to provide contraception in their health insurance. This year, the question relates to gay marriage and whether a person would attend the gay wedding of a close friend. Al has comments.

Direct to My Desk: What does a parish do when a greatly beloved pastor over-reaches in trying to protect the innocent and finds himself at odds with his bishop? The case of Christ the King, Fr. Ed Fride and the Bishops of Michigan 


  • Description: Christ the King, an Ann Arbor parish, is getting international attention for a debate over firearms. The church’s pastor, Fr. Ed Fride, recently announced that Concealed Pistol License classes would take place on church property. He encouraged parishioners to participate, citing a host of reasons. Fr. Fride also sent parishioners a lengthy and controversial letter explaining his concerns. Since the announcement, Lansing Bishop Earl Boyea has restated the diocese’s longstanding policy against carrying firearms on church property and the classes have been relocated. But not before the secular press seized on the story and many parishioners responded with moral indignation and threats of leaving. Oh, it’s also Al’s and Nick’s home parish. Benedict XVI called for the laity to accept co-responsibility for the Church. What does that mean in this case? What should the parish do when their beloved pastor makes a well-intentioned error and finds himself at odds with his bishop? We’ll discuss it. Call us at 877-573-7825.
