Wisconsin, 4th District
If you agree with us that action needs to be taken, write or call the persons below and:
This series, appropriately titled "Herod's Heroes," is intended to separate the wheat from the chaff by revealing those men and women, for whom we have voted, and who are not upholding the ideals God expects of His children. We cannot condone sin, and they are promoting the most vile of sin by being accomplices to the slaughter of millions of innocents in the womb. That is why, like the Judean king of Christ's time, who, out of political expediency and jealousy, tried to eliminate the Messiah by killing the first-born of every family, so also they are helping satan in killing God's precious ones sacrificed at the altar of the convenience of modern life. These "Herod's Heroes" are under the totally false misconception that a woman has the right to do with her body as she wants. Wrong! It is not hers, but rather God's. The body we have is merely a shell to hold our soul. The soul is forever; the body, as we are reminded on Ash Wednesday, will return to dust. Christ has said in Matthew 10: 28, "Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather be afraid of him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell."
Today, we had intended to cross the state line to Illinois. But by his vote last Thursday, today's subject dropped from being a mere 'Herod's Helper' to a true "Herod's Hero" by his shameless vote against protecting the unborn to acts of violence. Therefore, he has the distinction of being featured twice and it is not complimentary. Therefore, the fifty-third on the overall list of "Herod's Heroes" to date is Jerry Leczka, the Democratic Representative for the 4th District of Wisconsin which covers the southern and southwest part of the city of Milwaukee including parts of Waukesha County. As an ally of satan through his pitiful pro-abortion stance, he is enabling lucifer to "destroy both soul and body in hell." Through his actions he has become an enemy of God and the Roman Catholic Church. This is not a political statement on Kleczka, but rather a moral statement; one he and his bishops should take very, very seriously.
Born and raised on Milwaukee's South side, the 57-year Jerry Kleczka attended the University of Wisconsin and then joined the Air National Guard. After becoming an accountant, he caught the political bug and ran for the Wisconsin State Assembly in 1969. In 1974 he was elected to the State Senate where he remained ten years until the death of Congressman Clement Zablocki in 1984 when, in a special election, Kleczka was elected to fill the deceased's seat. Here was a Polish-Catholic succeeding another and a relative of the state's first Polish-American John Casimir Kleczka in 1918.
You would hope and pray that being a Polish-Catholic, and representing a large ethnic Catholic contingency that he would have gone against the grain of his party and seek to do what is right, seek to honor the Polish-Catholics that previously served in that District. But other than voting for the ban, and remaining lukewarm on Pro-Life issues, he has embraced the culture of death. Do you think his Polish ancestors are proud? Because of his party affiliation he was even more willing to turn his back on God than his fellow Democrats. What price politics?!
As a congressman he could do so much good, yet there have been no fruits because, through his action and record, he has steadily shown a disdain for the teachings of the Catholic Church and her mandate of upholding life in all stages. His 45% pro-abort voting record proves a horrendous consistency in voting for and legislating pro-abortion measures that empower the culture of death. He will have to answer to God for these transgressions against Christ's innocent ones as Jesus says in Matthew 25: 45, "'Amen I say to you, as long as you did not do it for one of these least ones, you did not do it for Me.' And these will go into everlasting punishment, but the just into everlasting life."
We ask him to repent of his ways, help turn the Democratic Party away from the culture of death and the immoral organization it became under the evil leadership of the Clinton administration. We ask him to help bring the Party back to the glory days when the Party stood for decency and right. Today the Party he is so proud of is so far Left that its members, who continue to promote abortion - murder in the womb, could very well be left out at the Heavenly gates when their time comes.
Is Congressman Kleczka truly aware of that? We call on all to help him see the grave error of his ways and we call on his archbishop in Milwaukee as well as the cardinal in Washington D.C. to take firm, responsible action to assure that if he continues to persist in the sin, he will be banished from the Church for remaining a Catholic while carrying on the sin with no sign of repentance. It is truly a slap in God's and His Church's face. As we wrote in our Ash Wednesday OPEN LETTER TO THE BISHOPS OF AMERICA and a week later in It's up to you. Left or Right? and Monday in our Open Letter to the Bishops III: "Defer no time, delays have dangerous ends" we respectfully, but strongly remind you time is of the essence. We are now in the second half, if you will, Eastertide - not a lot of time for the bishops to extend the warning - a time of Mercy - for these wayward 'Catholics' who promote abortion to repent of their ways. We have set this date because after this special day of enlightenment there can be NO MORE EXCUSES either from the polticians or the bishops! If the politicians stubbornly refuse, then after Pentecost Sunday it's time to take action and dismiss them as apostates. Do you really want that, Congressman Kleczka?
You can e-mail Jerry Kleczka and, in love, ask him yourself. Beg him to repent of his ways. Remind him what Jesus asserts in Matthew 16: 26-27, "For what does it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, but suffer the loss of his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? For the Son of Man is to come with His angels in the glory of His Father, and then He will render to everyone according to his conduct." Is his political career more important than the welfare of his soul? Ask him. His e-mail is
We call on the Archbishop of Milwaukee, whose jurisdiction governs Kleczka's area of residence and his constituency, Archbishop Rembert G. Weakland, OSB along with Kleczka's governing prelate in the nation's capitol Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, Archbishop of Washington D.C., to jointly issue a mandate to Congressman Kleczka that if he persists after Pentecost Sunday he will be EXCOMMUNICATED.
These bishops must realize that they have a duty before God, a duty to their flocks to extend mercy through the grace-period of this past Lent and now the Easter Season leading up to Pentecost. If no action is taken or if there is and Congressman Barrett refuses to heed even the Church, then let him be an anathema.
We realize one reason so many Catholics have bought into the idea that abortion is a private choice, why 50% voted for pro-abort candidates and most probably re-elected Kleczka is because of the campaign to democratize the Church by people like the progressive Archbishop Weakland, one of the leading liberals of the amchurch who seeks to weaken the Church's absolute teachings that have withstood the test of ages for nearly 2000 years. Under his leadership the Faith has deteriorated greatly both in his see and wherever that same politically correct mindset exists among these 'Democrats in Miters.'
We call on the Archbishop to return to the absolutes of the teachings of holy Mother Church and not continue to lead his flock astray. As for Kleczka - like the prodigal son - we will gladly welcome him back and be proud to number him as a loyal Catholic - as a Paul who once was Saul. Does Jerry Kleczka really want his legacy in eternity to be that he was one of "Herod's Heroes?" With all the good that he has sought to accomplish, why have it blotted out by the evil that he has done? We pray his heart will be touched and he will return to the fold. We ask him to seek out Father Daniel Coughlin, House Chaplain, and discuss it with him. But if he refuses, or chooses not to cooperate with the Church, if he ignores God's commands, then so be it. He has sold his soul to the devil and Christ has made it very clear in Matthew 19: 15-18 of how to treat one who turns his back on His teachings.
Our bishops MUST follow Our Lord's teachings, they MUST stand up for Christ and His Church. They MUST not only speak out without reservation, but they MUST issue the ultimatum to these pro-abort politicians who bring so much scandal to the Church by continuing to call themselves 'Catholic.' If, by Pentecost Sunday, Congressman Kleczka refuses to repent, then he must be notified that he has interdicted himself by his actions, incurred automatic suspension (latae sententiae), and thus has been EXCOMMUNICATED! (cf. Canon Law 1329, 2; 1397 and 1398).
