Your Excellencies:

I would like to bring five more inappropriate parish bulletin ads to your attention. In each case, the ad is for a provider of the notorious abortifacient Plan B:

This bring to 23, the number of inappropriate ads which I have cited in recent correspondences:

  1. Assumption BVM, Feasterville
  2. Epiphany, Philadelphia
  3. Holy Martyrs, Oreland
  4. Maternity BVM,Philadelphia
  5. Mother of Divine Grace, Philadelphia
  6. Our Lady of Consolation, Parkesburg
  7. Our Lady of Grace, Penndel
  8. Our Lady of Mt Carmel, Bridgeport
  9. Our Mother of Consolation, Philadelphia
  10. Sacred Heart, Royersford
  11. St Ann, Phoenixville
  12. St Anselm, Philadelphia
  13. St Augustine, Bridgeport
  14. St Basil the Great, Kimberton
  15. St Helena, Blue Bell
  16. St Helena, Philadelphia
  17. St John the Baptist, Philadelphia
  18. St Joseph, Collingdale
  19. St Joseph, Spring City
  20. St Jude, Chalfont
  21. St Mary of the Assumption, Manayunk
  22. St Peter's, West Brandywine
  23. St Thomas Aquinas, Croydon

I prayerfully and respectfully request that the Archdiocese adopt a policy for all parishes of refusing ads from any promoter (be it a convenience store, a physician, a pharmacy, a department store pharmacy, or a supermarket pharmacy) of abortifacients and contraceptives.

About Me

I am an enormously blessed husband and dad. In regard to my Catholic theological background, I have a certificate in social ministry & a master's degree (moral theology concentration), as well as a catechetical diploma from the Vatican's Sacred Congregation for the Clergy (Nope, I am not now - nor have I have ever been - a seminarian, deacon, or priest.). I feel particularly proud to have a mandatum. I also have a doctorate in Christian counseling psychology.

And yup, that's me!

And yup, that's me!
