Bishop Daniel Jenky of Peoria, Ill. has asked parishes, schools, hospitals and religious houses to insert the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel into the intercessions at Sunday Mass to pray for Catholics’ freedom. (TLDM)

“I strongly urge you not to be intimidated by extremist politicians or the malice of the cultural secularists arrayed against us.”
-Bishop Daniel Jenky

Bishop Daniel Jenky of Peoria, Illinois warned Catholic democrats that one day they will indeed have to meet their Creator and will have to give account for their irresponsible acts before God.
The Catholic News Agency reported:

Politicians who consider themselves Catholic but collaborate in “the assault against their faith” should remember they will one day have to give account for their acts before God, Bishop Daniel Jenky of Peoria, Illinois said Feb 10.

“There is a last judgment. There is a particular judgment. May they change their minds and may God have mercy on them,” he told CNA during his visit to Rome.

When asked specifically about recent actions of Democratic Health and Human Services Secretary Sebelius Kathleen Sebelius and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Bishop Jenky replied “I am utterly scandalized.”

“The Lord once said ‘if you deny me at the end, I will deny you,’ this from our most merciful, good Savior. And so if it is a choice between Jesus Christ and political power or getting favorable editorials in leftist papers, well, that’s simply not a choice.”

Both Sebelius and Rep. Pelosi have been at the forefront of attempts to force Catholic institutions to cover contraception, sterilizations and abortifacients as part of their staff’s health insurance plans.

Bishop Jenky said there are too many Catholic politicians in the U.S. who “like to wear green sweaters on St. Patrick’s Day and march” or “have their pictures taken with the hierarchy” or “have conspicuous crosses on their forehead with ashes” but who then “not only do not live their faith they collaborate in the assault against their faith.”

Bishop Jenky spoke to the Catholic faithful in January.

the president does not have the authority under the U.S. Constitution to “require our cooperation with what we consider to be intrinsic evil and mortal sin.”

“I am honestly horrified that the nation I have always loved has come to this hateful and radical step in religious intolerance.”

The bishop pledged that the Church will never abandon its commitment to the Gospel of Life and called on the faithful to “vigorously” oppose what he called an “unprecedented governmental assault upon the moral convictions of our faith.”

Bishop Jenky also struck an encouraging note.

“Have faith! Have courage! Fight boldly for what you believe!” he said. “I strongly urge you not to be intimidated by extremist politicians or the malice of the cultural secularists arrayed against us.”

  1. Glad to see the sleeping giant has finally awakened.

  2. Preach it, brother! ‘Bout time some member of the Church hierarchy said it! No more milquetoast Christianity. Anne Barnhardt is right: If Jesus and His Apostles were “nice guys,” then “Christianity would’ve never made it out of the Upper Room!”

  3. The likes of Pelosi and Biden should be excommunicated in the most public way possible. That they won’t be says an awful lot about the Catholic Church.

  4. So if the new White House nutrition plan contained bacon and ham in it, would Obama tell Muslims they must serve it at all gatherings at the local Mosque????

  5. It’s about time. This has been going on for a long time and sadly the Catholic Church has been silent and in many ways supportive of the very people that are attacking the Church now. They thought they could get away with it once again. We will fight back Dems.

  6. “not only do not live their faith they collaborate in the assault against their faith.”

    Collaborate in the assault? THEY LEAD THE ASSAULT.

  7. Why don’t lawmakers who violate their faith get excommunicated? Wouldn’t that send a message? It’s not beheading or suicide bombing, but it’s all Catholicism has in its holster. Use it.

  8. I suggest these “Catholic” politicians and the liberal clergy (at Notre Dame and elsewhere) reread Hosea 8.

  9. I am not a catholic but i have been waiting for 40 years for Catholics to join me in protesting the slaughter of millions of babies. You can not make a deal with the the devil, abortion is pure evil. No concession, no accommodation, no, no, no, and never.

  10. “Catholic Bishop Warns Pelosi, Biden, Sebelius, McCaskill… Judgement Day Is Coming”

    AND Of course, Obama.

    “Bishop Daniel Jenky of Peoria, Illinois warned Catholic democrats that one day they will indeed have to meet their Creator and will have to give account for their irresponsible acts before God.”

    The Catholic Church teaches, Last rites a sacrament to confess to God your sins before dying. And when you reach heaven you ask God for forgiveness. And you are in.

    Sounds crazy to say this but Catholic women aren’t going off the pill because of what a Bishop says. The Church teaches if you confess your sins you are abolished from them.

    SOME TAKE THIS LITERALLY.

    “Both Sebelius and Rep. Pelosi have been at the forefront of attempts to force Catholic institutions to cover contraception, sterilizations and abortifacients as part of their staff’s health insurance plans.”

    Say his name, Bishop! OBAMA, OBAMA CARE.

    “the president does not have the authority under the U.S. Constitution to “require our cooperation with what we consider to be intrinsic evil and mortal sin.”

    There you go, Bishop, finally, he should have started with that!!!

    “Have faith! Have courage! Fight boldly for what you believe!” he said. “I strongly urge you not to be intimidated by extremist politicians or the malice of the cultural secularists arrayed against us.”

    And he should have added but he won’t, VOTE THE DICTATORS AND HYPOCRITES OUT IN NOVEMBER.

  11. Alternate title: gloves are off mo**********s!

  12. He is liable to make Pope Pelosi mad. Pelosi has already told the present fellow who is in charge!

  13. “Vengeance is mine, i will repay, saith the lord” Romans 12;19

    I hope there is enough room in hell for all of the people who deny the Lord. Nancy and all of her crony friends certainly deserve this. Ironically, The the unborn that the liberals are so eager to kill thru abortion are all in Heaven. Those who support abortion unless they repent and ask for forgiveness are condemed to spend an eternity in Hell.

    So I ask- “What is the upside to supporting abortion?. There is none!

    Excommunication doesn’t carry the same weight it did hundreds of years ago. It used to have serious ramifications in this life and the hereafter.

    In the USA even if some bishops refuse to give the sacraments to these Catholic Politicians other bishops will.

    These folks betray the constitution and their faith.

  15. Senate is a majority of hypocrites and radicals. The only way to ever accomplish justice is to vote them out of office. If you have sincere feelings about this administration that they are leading us down into temptation then the ALL should be voted out.

    And for Obama: He said a baby is a punishment for his daughters. Partial Birth is what he voted for, Planned Parenthood a big part of this administration.

    These bishops better look hard when the vote and turn a page on Obama’s Era. Time is now. The only answer is this because there are liberal supreme court judges near retirement and he will select younger and more liberal judges and this bishops words won’t matter one bit.

  16. Where was the Outrage from the church LONG BEFORE THIS?

    They never saw what was coming until now?

    Really!

  17. Shame on ALL the leaders. Sign then read?

    This is what this nation has been so upset about in the first place. OBAMA CARE and Seibilus getting a blank check and free reign.

  18. Time for all Christians to start pushing a little Joshua:
    “Choose this day who you will serve..”
