“We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through. I do not think that wide circles of the American society or wide circles of the Christian community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel and the anti-Gospel. This confrontation lies within the plans of divine providence. It is a trial which the whole Church… must take up.” Karol Cardinal Wotyla (Sept. 1976)

Add The Center for Catholic and Jewish Studies to the List...

An inter-faith denouncement of PZ Myers from the Center for Catholic and Jewish Studies:

"...Catholics have already begun deep personal prayer and reparation to God for such grievous actions. At the same time, we should all be aware that persons who say and do such things as we have seen and heard obviously do not value or for some reason are not able to value the rights or beliefs of others. Therefore, we also hold the perpetrators of such acts in our prayers, calling upon the Spirit to lead them to a conversion of heart and mind, even as we seek justice. We join all persons of good-will who value a free society where people of different faiths thrive together in a wonderful and passionate pursuit of justice, peace, tolerance and mutual respect. We envision a new world where all live as brothers and sisters. Catholics and their friends do not seek retaliation, but a sense of contrition and reparation so that healing can continue. We long for the day when such actions against any religious person will be seen as a true hate crime against all humanity."

So, we have Christians in general, Catholics, Jewish people, Atheists, Agnostics, and probably others that I forgot, condemning this guy's actions and calling for a response from the University, and STILL nothing? What's it gonna take?

Bless You, Alycin!

This is what I was getting at with all my posts, deliberately done one at a time. Myers is a man without a country. Completely exposed.

The Catholic League has been very quiet... very quiet. I know Bill Donohue and he is absolutely tenacious and will never give up. He is working on something. Maybe brokering a deal with UMM for a suspension, maybe brokering a UMM boycott with multiple organizations.
