|Pope Benedict XVI|
A Tribute to Deacon Nick Donnelly and the Protect the Pope blog
We owe a great debt of gratitude to Deacon Nick Donnelly and his Protect the Pope blog. For in the lead up to Pope Benedict’s visit to Britain in 2010 the media led by the BBC engaged in a feeding frenzy of hatred directed towards the Pope and the Catholic Church. A lot of this hatred was generated by the pro-homosexual lobby like Stonewall, Outrage and Peter Tatchell etc. Who seemed to be everywhere in the media, Tatchell described Pope Benedict as “the ideological inheritor of Nazi homophobia” - really nasty language designed to do as much damage as possible. This was the culmination of a decade media led anti-Catholic bigotry the likes that had not been seen since the restoration of the Catholic hierarchy in Britain in 1850. Deacon Nick was able to organise support for the Pope's visit and has continued to support sound Catholics everywhere.
The Protect the Pope blog has continued to grow to be one of the biggest and most influential blogs in orthodox Catholic world. We are sad to learn that this great blog has been in the words of Mrs Donnelly effectively closed down by the Bishop. We do not know why but many feel we are now deprived of major voice for orthodoxy in the Church. Someone who will speak out against the dissidents someone who will expose the smoke of Satan that has invaded the Church, someone who will report on 'A Call to action’s' nonsense, someone who will tell the truth about the non stopping of the Soho ‘Gay’ Masses and all the excesses there. See http://protectthepope.com/ And like CUT report on anti-Catholic bigotry in the media.
Please pray for Deacon Nick Donnelly, his good lady and for bishop Michael Campbell.
