CARDINAL O’MALLEY REFUSES TO SPEAK OUT ON AWARD TO MARTY WALSH

CARDINAL O’MALLEY REFUSES TO
SPEAK OUT ON AWARD TO MARTY WALSH

The Massachusetts Pro-Life Coalition, an alliance of eight Bay State pro-life organizations, is criticizing Cardinal Sean O’Malley, the Archbishop of Boston, for his refusal to intervene, or even speak out, on the scandalous decision of Boston’s Catholic Memorial School to honor the fanatical pro-abortion U.S Secretary of Labor, Marty Walsh.

On April 1st, at the school’s Spring Gala fundraising banquet, Catholic Memorial will present the Blessed Edmund Ignatius Rice Medal to Walsh, who once said he wanted to make Boston a sanctuary city for abortions, should Roe v. Wade be overturned.

Last week, in response to inquiries from the Catholic News Agency and the New Boston Post, Terrence Donilon, the Communications Secretary of the Archdiocese of Boston, told reporters, “I need to refer you back to CM.”

Now, a member of the Coalition has received a response from the Cardinal’s Office. Attorney Robert W. Joyce — the former President of the Catholic Memorial Alumni Association — wrote to Cardinal O’Malley on February 28th, reminding him that Walsh has “publicly, passionately and consistently promoted both abortion and same sex marriage.”

In a letter dated March 16th, Rev. William Joy, the Vicar for Clergy of the Archdiocese, replied to Joyce on behalf of the Cardinal. Joy said the “Archdiocese was not involved with the planning of the event” and “Catholic Memorial is a separately incorporated Catholic school with its own board of Directors entrusted with oversight of the institution.” He did not reveal whether O’Malley had accepted the school’s invitation to attend the Gala.

In response, Joyce said, “Pontius Pilate washed his hands and declared himself innocent of the blood of Jesus Christ. Today in this matter, Cardinal O’Malley is effectively washing his hands and declaring himself innocent of the blood which will, foreseeably, be shed as a result of CM’s decision—the blood of aborted children of God.”

Massachusetts Pro-Life Coalition spokesman William Cotter, the President of Operation Rescue Boston, made the following comment: “This evasive, legalistic and Pharisaical response to the legitimate concerns raised by Robert Joyce has been used before. In an infamous case from 2015, the Cardinal’s top aide, Father Robert Kickham, gave the same bureaucratic reply to the whistleblower who wrote to O’Malley about the notorious sexual predator, the now defrocked ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick. Kickham argued jurisdictional issues, telling the Rev. Boniface Ramsey that McCarrick’s crimes did not fall under the purview of either the Archdiocese of Boston or the Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors, which was headed by O’Malley.”

Cotter concluded, “This dodge by Cardinal Sean is becoming tiresome. If the Cardinal can speak out about George Floydpolice reform and the death penalty for the terrorist Marathon bomber, he can speak out about a scandalous betrayal of the innocent unborn in his own archdiocese.”

The Massachusetts Pro-Life Coalition, founded in 2017, brings together Operation Rescue Boston, Mass Resistance, the Massachusetts Alliance to Stop Taxpayer Funded Abortions; the Pro-Life Legal Defense Fund, the Boston Church Militant Resistance Chapter, the Boston Chapter of Helpers of God’s Precious Infants; American University Women for Life; and the Catholic Action League of Massachusetts

  1. A few Bishops have spoken out about Catholic politicians doing the wrong thing. Namely in San Francisco and St. Louis. Not in Boston though. Here it seems they are busy with real estate or promoting elitism. I am Catholic. We all have faults. It’s the human condition. However, some of our Catholic politicians in this state take the cake for being phonies. Its in the news today how Congressman Stevie Lynch came back from Europe and is pretending to be an expert on the Ukraine. He frequently travels to foreign trouble spots on the taxpayers dime. When was the last time he visited the South Shore suburbs he represents? He comes across as Mr. blue collar Southie. In reality his voting record is one of the most leftist in Congress. Then we have other Catholic politicians like McGovern, Markey and Healey. Ineffective, uncaring and agenda based clowns. They care little for working class people. Walsh is just another in a long line of political sell outs.

  2. RE:” Congressman Stevie Lynch came back from Europe

    He frequently travels to foreign trouble spots on the taxpayers dime.
    When was the last time he visited the “South Shore suburbs he represents?

    as if right-wing “‘conservatives” and Republicans do anything at all for working people
    other than raise their taxes and send jobs out of the country
    [as written into law in the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act
    that Trump and the GOP gave us
    that gave tax incentives to US corporations who moved operations overseas
    – they can now bring overseas profits home tax-free as a result]

    I’ll take Steve Lynch and American jobs instead,.

    1. Ernie: A shame you can’t look at facts before you spout your nonsense. I’m no extreme right wing person. I’m a working class moderate old school Democrat who stopped drinking the kool aid of Democratic Party lies. You must have a short memory span. Before noon on January 2022 gas in most parts of Metro Boston was just over $2.00. Lower in a few places. No Russians were marching in Europe. Inflation was at 1%. Home heating oil was $2.10 a gallon. I guess you forgot that Mr. Trump pushed hard for cars and other good be made in the USA. Working people enjoyed good days. I guess you forgot that Clinton and Obama approved
      trade deals that sent so many American jobs to China. Ernie, many people can read facts you know.. Those paying $5.10 for home heating oil don’t buy the phony Democrat garbage anymore.
      Steve Lynch is a self serving joker. A walking stereotype. An arrogant punk pretending to be smart. He supports policies that are putting working class people in the poorhouse. He’s joe working class on West Broadway and a leftist when he gets to vote in Congress.

    2. Ernie: I meant before January 20, 2021 not 2022.. After that things went down hill fast. You must buy groceries and gas right? No wars before noon on January 20, 2021. Stevie Lynch talks tough when their is a foreign crisis. Funny how he never joined the military when he was young?
