…The last incident was not child abuse, because I was no longer a minor, though I was still a teenager of 18 or 19. Several years earlier, my family had worked for the election of our congressman, Father Robert Drinan, an anti-Vietnam War, pro-choice priest. He was in town for a fundraiser or town meeting, and I went. Afterward he offered me a ride to the subway. (You’d think I would have learned.) He was in his 50s, and as he drove we chatted about college. We got to where he was letting me off, he turned off the engine, and he began jabbering incoherently about men and women. Then he lunged, shoving his tongue in my mouth while running his hands over my breasts and up and down my torso. It seems like the set-up for a joke, a Jewish woman being molested by a Jesuit. As we tussled, I had probably the most naïve thought of my life: “How could this be happening, he’s a priest!”As I shoved him off and opened the car door to get out, I saw I had left a smear of my pink lipstick on his clerical collar. Again, I told no one. It was embarrassing, revolting, and I had no desire to make accusations against a congressman, especially one I admired….(Source)
Fr. Robert Drinan did enormous damage to the pro-life cause. And like most “progressive” priests, the ugly truth behind their progressivism is a state of sexual mortal sin.
Any Catholic advocating for “social justice” should be suspect of being in a state of mortal sin. That might sound rather extreme, but I submit that most social justice advocates that I’ve seen and heard from fall into this boat. Check out this revealing conversation (H/T Heresy Hunter), and you will see precisely what I mean. Can you pick out all of the big, honking red flags in this woman’s admissions? What is she doing, confronting a Catholic priest about what the Catholic church teaches when she obviously has no bloody clue what she’s talking about? She belongs to the Social Justice religion, not the Catholic Faith, so what is she doing protesting in front of a Catholic parish? Like get a clue, you dip.
Social justice must be thoroughly expunged from the Church. Every last drop of it. Those who advocate for it are enemies of Jesus Christ and need to be called out as such.
When you hear about progressive priests, don’t kid yourself about their own fidelity to sexual morality. In the end, it’s about self-justification as Fr. Drinan aptly demonstrated….just like it is for the pro-abort activists who want some cover for their past. Don’t think it’s just theoretical for them or “for the cause”. The more vociferous they are, the more heinous their sexual sins are.
Notice too how the pro-abort writer above was willing to pass on seeking redress for her own personal dignity and overlook her molester’s sins because of some perverse notion of the human right to abortion. This is so typical of how pro-abortionists think. It really doesn’t matter how many crimes are committed – even crimes against their own personal integrity – the cause must be protected at all costs.
