    Afghanistan is another Vietnam? No, worse, this is Benghazi or Tehran all over again. People are not only holding onto planes hoping to get out but they are stuck in their homes hoping the president cares enough to make sure they are rescued.

      We are praying for Father Altman from Port Fairy, a small country town in Victoria, Australia. I started to listen to Father Altman's sermons when our churches closed and all sacraments stopped, and I have been listening every week since.

        Webster defines science as "knowledge as distinguished from ignorance." The famous plaque on UW's Bascom Hill states that the U. of Wisconsin ..."should ever encourage that continual and fearless sifting and winnowing by which alone the truth can be found." Consequently, if one is not permitted to question it, it is not really science. Can anyone imagine not being permitted to ask a question in math or science in school?

          Last week, Bishop William Callahan suspended Father James Altman from public ministry. The primary reason seems to be Father Altman’s preaching about pro-abortion Catholics.

          The Diocese of La Crosse now has the article from the CNA, which speaks of the Pope's approval of Father James Martin's "ministry" on its official website. The same website in which a letter from the Bishop criticizing Father Altman is on. The irony here is inescapable. At the least, featuring this article on the Diocesan website regarding Father Martin is being tone deaf at this time.

          Father James Altman is an an embarrassment to our city, our state, the Roman Catholic Church and indeed, the whole of Christianity. The mask is a little piece of cloth, not a ball and chain. It’s something decent people wear to prevent others from being sick, in no way is it taking away anyone’s freedom. Our Lord healed the sick, Altman is fine doing the opposite.

          Not a good week for the La Crosse Catholic Diocese.. First it gets hit with the start of an investigation by the Wisconsin Attorney General relating to sex abuse and the resulting coverups. Then its alt-right celebrity Father Altman again strikes spewing his deceitful (per the Diocese) and hateful ideas about any number of things from his pulpit and violating local law and church policy on COVID precautions. And, he apparently has become the darling of alt-right hate groups by contributing material to their social media and internet sites. What a guy!

          This week, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Oshkosh, told a conservative talk radio show that the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol "didn’t seem like an armed insurrection to me." That struck a nerve with Wisconsin State Journal readers. Here is a collection of the letters to the editor they sent us.
