Senator Jack Reed|
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."
Sixth on the list of "Herod's Heroes" is the Democratic senator from Rhode Island Senator Jack Reed.
As an ally of satan through his uncompromising 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 Reed, but rather a moral statement. One he and his bishops should take very, very seriously.
Here is a man who was born and raised in the staunchly Catholic area of Providence. He attended LaSalle Academy where he was taught by the Christian Brothers. A product of the sixties, he has evidently sold out to the political correctness of the feminist left, forgetting that true feminism is exemplified in the Blessed Mother of God through humility and obedience to God's Holy Will as she instructed in John 2: 5, "Do whatever He tells you."
Yet, through Senator Reed's action and record he has consistently shown a disdain for the teachings of the Catholic Church and her mandate of upholding life in all stages by his promotion, votes and legislation of 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 today's Gospel 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 has come under the evil leadership of Bill Clinton. We ask him to help bring the Party back to the glory days when the Party stood for decency and right. Today it 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 Senator Reed truly aware of that? We call on all to help him see the grave error of his ways and we call on his bishop in Providence and 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 is a slap in God's and His Church's face. As we wrote in our Ash Wednesday OPEN LETTER TO THE BISHOPS OF AMERICA we respectfully, but strongly recommend this time of Lent and Easter as a time for the bishops to extend the warning - a time of Mercy - for these wayward 'Catholics' who promote abortion to repent of their ways. If they stubbornly refuse, then after Pentecost Sunday it's time to take action and dismiss them as apostates. Do you really want that, Senator Reed?
You can e-mail Senator Reed 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
We call on the bishop whose jurisdiction governs Reed's residence in Cranston Bishop Robert E. Mulvee, Bishop of Providence along with Reed's governing prelate in the nation's capitol Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, Archbishop of Washington D.C. to jointly issue a mandate to Senator Reed that if he persists after Pentecost Sunday he will be EXCOMMUNICATED. These bishops have a duty before God, a duty to their flock to extend mercy through the grace-period of Lent and Easter Season leading up to Pentecost. If no action is taken or if there is and Senator Reed refuses to heed the Church, then let him be an anathema.
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 Senator Reed really want his legacy in eternity to be that he was one of "Herod's Heroes?" With all the good that he has accomplished, 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. But if he refuses, 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, Senator Reed 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).
