- This will have decades of most positive ramifications for the USA and the world.
- God bless Justice Brett Michael Kavanaugh.
I was cheering at the justifiable emotion of Senator Lindsey Graham:
The absolute best round of questioning came from Republican John Neely Kennedy of Louisiana, very short, very sweet. This was the very last closing session of questioning:
So, let’s see, I’m guessing that within the next six years, we might well see the resignation of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. After all, she’s going on 86 right now. Trying to hang on would put her well into her 90s. Her placement would, of course, be another woman, right? I’m thinking of Amy Coney Barrett. Aren’t you?
As you can tell, I’m still in celebration mode. I’m a Catholic priest. But even if you’re an “atheist” but also a promoter of natural law, you should also be in celebration mode. You are, aren’t you?
It seems that netflix has a series on the murder of a nun in the 1970s. It seems that the series implies that Father Maskell was a suspect with the motivation that a thirty years post-“incident” allegation of abuse was made against him, the imagined cover-up of abuse being the motivation for the innocent until proven guilty priest to murder the nun.
I was told by Father Gordon J MacRae today that Father Maskell was investigated by Baltimore County PD as a possible suspect in the murder. Father MacRae told me that he actually worked as a counselor for the Baltimore County PD in the 1970s and was well aware of this case. He said that “Father Maskell was absolutely cleared as a suspect,” and that “it was not until 1992 that an accusation of abuse first surfaced alleged to have happened 30 years earlier.” He said that “the netflix implication was that he killed the nun to cover for the abuse. That is absolutely nonsense.”
Father Gordon MacRae went on to tell me that “the reason I know this is because my supervisor knew Father Maskell from this investigation and told me that he had been absolutely eliminated as a suspect. She (P.H.) was the commander of the Youth Services Division.
As he told me these things I recalled the multitude of Catholic journalists who jumped on the “accusation is evidence” bandwagon so as to build themselves up. Sheesh. This kind of fake news only promotes more actual abuse for the reason that sooner or later no one will take any possible victim seriously. The fake news crowd are as bad as actual abusers. There is nothing more hateful to those actually abused other than perhaps seeing those who prostitute themselves to political correctness, gaining praise at the cost of the sufferings of those who have actually been abused.
You know who they are in the Catholic media who are always full of fake news.
