U R G E N T —- Action Alert

PETITION: Stand with priest who faces Church penalties 
for saying ‘You can’t be a Catholic and a Democrat.’

Father James Altman, pastor of St. James the Less parish in the Wisconsin Diocese of LaCrosse, has been threatened with canonical punishment by his Bishop, Most Rev. William Patrick Callahan.

Fr. Altman’s alleged “offense”?

Stating what every faithful Catholic knows to be true in 2020: “You cannot be a Catholic and a Democrat.”

Please SIGN this petition which will go to Bishop Callahan and ask him to stop any canonical proceedings against Fr. Altman.

In a strongly-worded YouTube video
, designed to shepherd the faithful out of harm’s way (supporting the Democratic Party’s evil platform), Fr. Altman states the following:

“Here’s a memo to clueless, baptized Catholics out there: You cannot be Catholic and be a Democrat. Period. Their party platform absolutely is against everything the Catholic Church teaches. So, just quit pretending that you’re Catholic and vote Democrat. Repent of your support of that party and its platform, or face the fires of Hell…”

Strong stuff to be sure, but Fr. Altman was taking his cue from Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI (whom he quotes) – the Church has a “duty and obligation” to speak up when politicians act in an immoral way.

In other words, a pastor must give strong warnings, at times, to guide souls away from grave danger, even when the dangers come from politicians or a political party.

See the video that Fr. Altman is being persecuted for here.

Please sign the petition and help promote the video to bring America back to a moral culture.

    Yes, I have watched his video and sent it on to others. H and I watched it together, I said to him: Now there is an authentic Catholic priest. We have also signed the petition on lifesite, and sent his Bishop (Callahan) a respectful but straight forward defense of Fr. Altman. He is a breath of fresh air. So passionate to save souls….the heart of a true shepherd! Praying for him and for you your Excellency and all the true shepherds God has so blessed his flock with.
