ICL Urges Bishop Driscoll to Intervene

ICL Urges Bishop Driscoll to Intervene

By SOP newswire

"We issue a public call for Idaho's Catholic Bishop, Mike Driscoll, to intervene quickly and forcefully in the brewing scandal involving Sister Helen Prejean," ICL Executive Di­rector said in a statement issued Wednesday. Sister Prejean is scheduled to be the keynote speaker at an event to raise money for the Idaho ACLU on Friday, September 28th. (Please see their homepage).

This nefarious organization has played a pivotal role in undermining Christian morality and the sanctity of both family and human life.

They proudly proclaim their tenacious opposition to laws like Parental Consent, which has caused untold damage to girls and families - but the larger harm has been the preborn children snuffed out by their accomplices at Planned Parenthood. The Idaho ACLU has opposed every bill in the Legislature since its inception designed to protect preborn children.

A quick view of their website demonstrates beyond debate that they are also involved in a deeper and more pernicious campaign to undermine morality - particularly targeting vulnerable teenagers and preteens. (Please see their "comic strip" on abstinence education).

And there is probably no other organization in America with an agenda more hostile to basic Christian tenets than the American Civil Liberties Union.

Sister Helen Prejean, made a celebrity by her work to end the death penalty, is not just helping the ACLU build its war chest - she is also a keynote speaker at the upcoming Fall Conference, designed to educate and build the faith of rank-and-file Catholics across the state. It is obvious that she cannot fulfill both obligations without causing scandal and demoralizing countless Christians across Idaho.

We ask Bishop Driscoll to intervene. We respectfully and prayerfully urge him to ask Sister Helen to withdraw from Friday's fundraising gig. If she is unwilling to do so - then we believe it appropriate for Bishop Driscoll to remove her from the Fall Conference.

"It is crucial that the Catholic Church not be misunderstood as sanctioning the radical agenda of the ACLU," concluded Ripley.
