Catholics Upholding Catholic Canon Law

The Spiritual Combat: "None shall be crowned who has not fought well." 2 Tim.2:5

Our Mission Is To See Our Catholic Clergy Upholds The Codex Of Catholic Canon Law & Shepherds Jesus' Flock Wisely

Catholics That Defy Canon Law

Solemn Warning! The following people are those who claim to be Catholic but dissent from the Truth as handed down from Jesus Christ, Second Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, the Divine Word, to His Apostles and their successors. Unfortunately, even clergy are included on this list. However, since the beginning of Christianity, history shows that even heresy can begin with clergy, one notable example being the priest Martin Luther who started all of Protestantism.

These people are commonly associated with various Dissident Organizations or beliefs as indicated The names of these individual dissidents, which are listed in alphabetical order by common dissent topic, are offered for your education and awareness. This list is not complete and will be modified as more information is learned over time.I plan to add the biggest non catholic culprit the heritic president obummer

This set of people are unfortunately acting like JUDAS - Just Undermine Doctrine And Spirituality! Since "God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth that all men be saved" (1 Timothy 2:3),  remember that it is your duty to pray for these people so that they may embrace the full Truth of the Catholic Faith! God's Love, Mercy and Forgiveness are boundless for the repentant sinner. Diane and I are fed up, we are in prayer but we have become activist Catholics for a righteous cause for Our Lord God And Savior Jesus Christ♥

Terry Dosh President of Association for Rights of Catholics in the Church, an organization who wants to create their faith through a "democratic" vote and constitution. Mr. Dosh should read the Vatican II documents and realize that we Catholics already have several Constitution documents.
Sr. Fran Ferder As co-author of the book "Partnership: Men & Women in Ministry" says that "The mobilizing metaphor of this council document (Lumen Gentium, specifically its description of the Church as The People of God) remains the image of the church as a community of faith in history. The result has been a revolution in Catholic consciousness that is stronger than our words and deeper than our symbols. It is a shift from understanding the church primarily as the hierarchical institution to experiencing it as a community of disciples. It is a way of recognizing the primordial dignity of baptism as the basis for all mission and ministry." Vatican II's Lumen Gentium makes it perfectly clear in chapter 3 that the Church is Hierarchical.
Fr.

True Presence of Jesus Christ
- Body, Blood, Souls and Divinity -
in the Eucharist
[Note that all Protestant denominations also deny the true Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist]

Monika Hellwig
(contributor to Renew 2000)
Says that "[Jesus saying this is My Body] more probably was intended to mean that His action of blessing, breaking, sharing and eating in such an assembly in His Name and memory was to be seen as the embodiment of the presence and Spirit and power of Jesus in the community."
Fr. Karl Rahner Proposes a "transfinalization" or "transignification" which claims the "meaning" of the bread changes after Consecration - a symbol - rather than the Bread really and truly changing into the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ. This heresy is specifically condemned in the Pope Paul VI Eucharistic Encyclical Mysterium Fidei.
Fr. Edward Schillebeeckx Proposes a "transignification" whereby the "sign" of the bread and wine are changed into the "sign" of Jesus Christ. This heresy is specifically condemned in the Pope Paul VI Eucharistic Encyclical Mysterium Fidei.
Piet Schoonberg Influence for Monika Hellwig and Edward Schillebeeckx.
Anthony Wilhelm "When we say that the bread and wine 'become Christ' we are not saying that bread and wine are Christ ... What me mean is that the bread and wine are a sign of Christ present."

Theology Incompatible with the Catholic Faith
Sheila Briggs Feminist Theology.
Fr. Patrick Brennan Denies the value and necessity of Indulgences.
Tom Beaudoin "Pop culture is important (e.g. be with the world)," "Pluralism can be a virtue," "Suspicion of institutions can be a good thing," "Humility is the center of all ... teaching authority." See the article "Irreverently Yours: A Message from Generation X" in U.S. Catholic magazine April 1999.
James Carroll, ex-priest Wrote a book titled Constantine's Sword: the Church and the Jews. Time magazine explains well: "a new book claims that Christianity, not just bad Christians, is to blame for the persecution of the Jews."
Sr. Joan Chittister, OSB A supporter of Call to Action who promotes Feminist theology.
Paul Collins, ex-priest Author of the books "Papal Power" and "Mixed Blessings," who was under investigation by the Vatican claims since 1998, claims that a "true and binding revelation [to obey the Church teachings] does not exist," denies that the Church of Christ is identified with the catholic Church, and hold an erroneous view of papal infallibility, among other things.
Sr. Carol Coston, OP Carol Coston was NETWORK's executive director during its first 11 years and later remained on its board of directors. In a 1984 autobiographical essay, Coston said her feminist perspective, developed during the 1960s and 1970s, enabled her to see "domination" on all sides and gave her freedom to "try to transform" it, as well as to choose her own work, companions and "life-style", and to discover "feminist spirituality." She discussed her spirituality in a 1980 speech published by NETWORK and included in Tuite's NARW-CWU "conscientization" kit. It draws heavily on the thought of Sr. Madonna Kolbenschlag and recommends the "positive images" to be found in the goddess traditions of Ishtar and Isis.
Fr. Anthony De Mello
(cited in Renew 2000)
Vatican ruling which states that his teachings are incompatible with the Catholic faith and can cause grave harm.
Fr. Jacques Dupuis Author of the book "Toward a Christian Theology of Religious Pluralism" which obtained a formal Notification from the Vatican.
Matthew Fox Author of the book "Creation Spirituality" and the founder of a movement with the same name, he was investigated by the Vatican and subsequently dismissed from the Dominican Order in 1993. Creation Spirituality has 10 Principles which replace the 10 Commandments, among which are claims of "Divinity is as much Mother as Father" and "That we experience that the Divine is in all things and all things are in the Divine (Panentheism)." Panentheism is an old heresy which has been resurrected in New Age thought. He has "Techno-Cosmic Masses" which "integrates live music, electronica, multi-media imagery and eastern and indigenous spiritual elements to create a multi-cultural, intergenerational and ecumenical form of worship." The real Catholic Mass makes Jesus Christ present in His Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity. Fox claims that Christianity has been spiritually destitute ever since St. Augustine came up with the doctrine of original sin. (Friends of Creation Spirituality is also part of Call to Action's Catholic Organizations for Renewal).
Bishop Samuel Ruiz Garcia Liberation Theology.
David Gentry-Akin Pro-feminist men.
Fr. Roger Haight The author of the book "Jesus: Symbol of God" promotes pluralism, similar to that of Fr. Jacques Dupuis (above). He was prevented from continuing to teach and is presently under investigation by the Vatican. Any real Catholic knows that Jesus *is* God, and not just a symbol. He also presents at Call to Action conferences. In 2002, he promoted feminist theology, pick whatever religion suits your conscience (indifferentism) and that "Catholics need a new theology" rather than Dominus Iesus, decried the "sexist" Church because women are not leaders (priests), and chided the Church for clericalism because the laity cannot perform priestly duties.
Diana Hayes Author of the book "And We Still Rise: an Introduction to Black Liberation Theology."
Sr. Jose Hobday As disciple of Matthew Fox and his creation spirituality, she has been quoted as saying that Catholic teachers "should forget about any church doctrine prior to twenty years agoÖcut the spiritual and emotional umbilical cord to the Church and start in a new direction."
Mary Hunt WomenChurch, Feminist theology.
Sr. Karol Jackowski As the author of "Sister Karol's Book of Spells and Blessings," Jackowski is into new age, pagan and occult spirituality. Her books says simply: "Find your own favorite prayers, your mantra ... Whatever God or divine power you call upon, whatever moves you make, whatever words you speak, whatever spell or blessing you choose, all of that now becomes charged with the magic in ritual.."
Bishop Franz Kamphaus Supports dissent via a false freedom of conscience: "Conscience can oblige the individual to acts that are in contradiction of Church teachings .... It is the responsibility of the individual alone."
Hans K¸ng Former theologian condemned by the Vatican.
Fr. Richard McBrien Says, among other things, that Jesus did not establish the Catholic Church, and calls into question the virginal conception of Jesus and the perpetual virginity of Our Lady, and promotes dissent.
Sr. Mary John Mananzan Feminist theology, supporter of Call to Action.
Michael Morwood, ex-priest Author of the books "Tomorrow's Catholic" and "Is Jesus God?" has had the former book banned by Archbishop Pell in Australia. He denies the teachings on the Divinity of Christ and the Most Blessed Trinity.
Diann Neu
(cited in Renew 2000)

Sr. CarmiÒa Navia Velasco Feminist Theology, Liberation Theology.
Fr. George Wertin Pastor of St. Joan of Arc parish in Minneapolis, MN. In a homily on Sunday, January 12th, 2003  titled "A Baptism That Transforms,"  he denies the doctrine of Baptism" "People are still locked into the old sin/redemption theology that sees all human being as infected by a hereditary sin from Adam that keeps them from God." Baptism not needed to remove original sin or personal sin but rather the sin of the world. In a July 14, 2002 homily, he preached that "we need to let go of fall/redemption theology" and "How refreshing to embrace a creation-centered spirituality." He was written up favorably in the August 2003 ChurchWatch section of the Call to Action dissident group.
