La Crosse, Wisconsin Liberal Bishop Suspends Priest Over Conservative Stance
Bishop suspends Outspoken Catholic Priest Fr. James Altman from the diocese of Lacrosse, Wisconsin, for daring to speak out against BLM and Antifa riots.
Fr. Altman became popular after he called out the Catholic Church over shutting doors to the faithful during the COVID pandemic; he says the people needed the church at that time more than ever.
He also brought attention to himself when he dared criticize BLM and Antifa as they rioted and caused billions of damage across the US. Said such behavior was not raising their cause, instead would turn people against it.
He further enraged Liberals when he called out members of the Democrat party, violating church beliefs if they claimed to be Catholic and supported abortion. He made headlines when he called for cutting off communion to Democrat leaders, such as Biden and Nancy Pelosi.
But the final straw that got him fired from his pulpit was his views on the COVID-19 vaccine.
Later, Father Altman called out the Catholics who are members of the Democratic Party for its stance on abortion rights. The reason he was finally suspended is his views on the COVID-19 vaccine. He has hired a Canon lawyer.
Here is the statement from the Diocese of La Crosse on the removal of Fr. Altman.
What we really have here is church speak for them firing him for daring to stand up for conservative ideas.
Here’s his Pentecost Sunday homily.
We applaud Fr. Altman for standing up for not only what he believed in but what the scriptures for Christians stand for. Too often, we see priests, ministers, Rabbis who are willing to leave out parts demanded of us to appease the liberals in their midst, but that was never the intent of faith; you enter in on the Almighty terms, not yours.
Today to become inclusive, churches and Synagogues have forsaken what makes them unique; by trying to appeal to all, they end up appealing to none. We were commanded to stand apart, not compromise until we are no longer doing this. If we take away what makes us unique, we no longer offer others anything.
