Update on April 16, 2015: The attacks against Archbishop Cordileone are heating up, with wealthy Catholics in his diocese taking out a full-page ad asking Pope Francis to remove the archbishop. He needs our support now more than ever.
San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone, well-known for his uncompromising defense of orthodox Catholic teaching and pro-life and pro-family values, urgently needs your help!
Gay activists, politicians and dissident Catholics have launched an all-out media attack campaign against the archbishop after he recently announced that he wants to codify a long-standing, commonsense expectation that Catholic schoolteachers in his diocese uphold and display public integrity regarding Catholic teachings on a wide variety of topics.
This includes Catholic teaching on controversial issues like abortion, contraception, chastity, and same-sex “marriage,” as well the Eucharist and the teaching authority of the Church.
Opponents of the archbishop are demanding that he repeal his plans, and recently even hired a high-priced public relations firm specifically to spearhead the attack against him! The media has jumped on board, piling on the good archbishop.
Shamefully, the activists are distorting the archdiocese’s broad-based action in support of Catholic moral values into a one-dimensional attempt to undermine the archbishop’s defense of traditional marriage.
American Life League and LifeSiteNews believe that Archbishop Cordileone is simply doing his fatherly duty as the spiritual head of his diocese to ensure that Catholic students receive an authentically Catholic education. Parents who send their children to Catholic schools have the right to expect that their children are being taught by teachers who, by the way they live their lives, won’t undermine their beliefs, or otherwise harm their children’s innocence.
ALL and LSN propose this petition and encourage all supporters of religious liberty and pro-life values to send a strong message supporting Archbishop Cordileone against this scandalous attack.
