Call For Radical Reform Of A Troubled Catholic Church

This observation leads to Moran’s most general, but perhaps also his most important point: the institutional Church must rethink what it means by “teaching.”

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, September 29, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — A book, Missed Opportunities:Rethinking Catholic Tradition by prolific author Gabriel Moran offers detailed criticism of the Roman Catholic Church and proposes radical reforms of that church. Moran has been writing on the strengths and weaknesses of the church since before the Second Vatican Council. The present book challenges the language and structure of the church as well as the basis of its moral teaching. Each of the chapters on topics that include contraception, abortion, homosexuality, euthanasia, the environment, and human rights is argued from a knowledge of the church’s own tradition in light of contemporary experience.

The Roman Catholic Church has been in free fall in the United States and Europe. Tens of millions of people have drifted away, not usually because they were attracted to something better, but because church officials speak a language that seems irrelevant. Pope Francis was able to awaken the interest of a surprisingly large number of people. He has changed the face of the official church mainly by gestures, symbols and provocative comments. He is unwilling or unable to pursue the kind of doctrinal change that is needed, especially on sexual issues. He does not seem to grasp the extent and the seriousness of a women’s movement worldwide.

The clergy abuse scandal, the author claims, was predictable fifty years ago when the aborted reforms of the Second Vatican Council left all power with the clergy while the support and protections of individual clergymen disappeared. Today the only way to end clericalism is to eliminate a clerical class. Priesthood is not tied to a clergy/lay division which runs counter to the church’s original vision of itself as a community of communities. Pope Francis has called a meeting of the leading bishops in the world to discuss the clergy scandal. Bishops talking only to other bishops are not likely to grasp the extent of the problem or know what to do about it.

The chapter on abortion offers a different argument beyond the useless opposition of pro-life vs. pro-choice. The author claims to be the traditionalist in following Augustine, Thomas Aquinas and the long history of the church’s teaching that early abortions are not homicide. The bishops in the 1970s, after nearly all church members rejected the official teaching on contraception, decided to take an absolute stand on abortion. They ceased talking about when a person comes into existence and started talking about “life.” Their stand is in opposition to most of the church’s tradition. The refusal to enter into any dialogue has been a self-defeating strategy. If the aim is to reduce the number of abortions the one policy that has proven to be effective is an easy access to contraceptives.

Author Gabriel Moran says that his aim in this book, as in previous books, is to open a better conversation on disputed topics. How a question is formulated determines the possible answers to the question. The Roman Catholic Church is sharply divided which makes fruitful discussions and debates nearly impossible. Missed Opportunities is an earnest attempt to find a new path that is both consistent with the long tradition of the church while genuinely confronting today’s questions.

Metal My Way Winner

Metal Supermarkets, the world’s largest supplier of small-quantity metals, announced the five winners of the 2018 annual “Metal My Way” contest.

MISSISSAUGA, ON, CANADA, September 29, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Metal Supermarkets, the world’s largest supplier of small-quantity metals, announced the five winners of the 2018 annual "Metal My Way" contest. The online contest showcases creative and innovative metal projects from across the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.

This year's Grand Prize winner is Damian Summerhayes from Victoria, British Columbia, Canada for his Fire Breathing Dragon. Damian's project impressed the contest judges with a high level of detail, originality, and the fact that the metal dragon breathes real fire! As the Grand Prize winner, Damian will receive a Weber Genesis II S-310 BBQ grill.

Built using round stock and sheet metal and minimal tools – just snips, a grinder and a welder – Damian completed the incredibly detailed creation in only a couple of weeks. He acquired the metal he needed to build his Fire Breathing Dragon from Metal Supermarkets Victoria, located at 2111 Keating Cross Road, Saanichton, British Columbia V8M 2A5.

In addition to the Grand Prize, 4 category prizes were awarded, with each winner receiving a Lincoln Electric 180 Amp Weld-Pak 180 HD Mig Wire Feed Welder. The category winners were:

• Automotive and Vehicle Project: Bob Eyler of Alvin, Texas who built a custom front-end loader using the chassis of an old lawnmower and building out the frame using a variety of metal types from Metal Supermarkets Houston (Southwest).
• Around the Home Project: Brian Gingras of Woburn, Massachusetts with a Smoker Trailer that features 2 smokers, a smoker grill combo, running hot and cold water, a two burner stove and plenty of stainless work surfaces. Brian acquired the metal for his project from Metal Supermarkets Boston (North).
• Industrial and Shop Project: Jacques Asselin-Kowalsky from Ayr, Ontario with an industrial heat exchanger for a food processing plant. Jacques used 306 Stainless Steel and other high pressure, high heat stainless steels, with processes including TIG welding, orbital welding with purging and acid treating welds.
• Art and Design Project: William Bush and John Miller from Amsterdam, New York for an intricately designed Library Door design. Created for the Carnegie Library, the door was made using 16 oz. copper sheet, brass and copper rods and was made entirely by hand.

"We were thrilled with the response to this year’s contest with a record number of projects submitted," said Stephen Schober, President and CEO of Metal Supermarkets, the title sponsor of Metal My Way. "We love to see all the incredible projects people are working on and think Metal My Way is a great platform to showcase their work.

On United Nations International Day of Non-Violence WanderSafe will launch a non-violent anti-trafficking device and free safety app for travelers

Non-violence is the greatest force at the disposal of mankind. It is mightier than the mightiest weapon of destruction devised by the ingenuity of man.”

— Mahatma Gandhi

CANNES, FRANCE, September 29, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — In observance of the United Nations International Day of Non-Violence and celebration of Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday, WanderSafe is making the WanderSafe safety advisory smartphone application free to download on the iTunes app store. In an advent that Gandhi would have supported, JOZU’s founders believe that everyone should be able to live without fear or need to resort to violent means of protection such as guns or pepper spray.

WanderSafe™ hardware and software solution was designed by a former travel consultant and frequent solo female business traveler with more than 53 countries stamped in her passport. CEO and Founder Stephenie Rodriguez, in collaboration with a retired 25-year US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Safety Expert, Thomas Pecora designed the WanderSafe platform to solve the problem of lack of information about safe areas, to empower in a non-violent fashion, and to alert loved ones or employers if the WanderSafe user is in danger.

The hardware – a device has anti-rape/assault deterrent features built into its sleek, discreet design including high lumen quick-click flashlight, the second click disorienting strobe light, and a patent pending twist top 140db personal siren for attracting the attention or frightening a potential assailant. The smartphone application delivers real-time safety information that is geo-location based and time-centric. Verified users can annotate their journey and provide safety advice and warnings for other users. The application personalizes safety information and recommendations through a virtual Safety Concierge, JENI.

The WanderSafe™ Activate button on the device, when paired with the application, notifies pre-set contacts including friends, loved ones, employers or law enforcement of the user’s immediate longitude and latitude with a distress signal.

Frequent travelers such as Canadian Tracey Regimbal, a victim of a violent act when traveling to Italy for work, believes that WanderSafe is a comprehensive solution for fellow travelers and commuters. “Violence comes in many formats and it is an unfortunate reality we are often unprepared for. We have become desensitized to these micro assaults in our everyday life. When confronted by an aggressor you realize your helplessness and WanderSafe give me and others like me a sense of greater comfort, information and security when I am away from my home.”

“Most travelers don't know how to call the local police. I didn't. They may not be able to speak the language of a foreign country, have a network for support or know a way of escaping a potential assailant. WanderSafe will help empower women and those who feel vulnerable through information, environmental awareness, prevention, and mitigation in a non-violent way that Gandhi would approve of,” commented Ms Regimbal.

In uncertain times and with solo female travel on the rise, Founder and CEO Stephenie Rodriguez believes WanderSafe™ is a travel essential, whether for an international trip or a local commute. “The future of travel is most definitely female with more than 850 million women traveling this year. More than 68% of all study abroad students are female and in the US, more than 11 million woman over age thirty takes solo international trips more than five times per annum. WanderSafe™ isn’t just for women. We are empowering more people to travel further with greater peace of mind and unlike pepper spray, guns or tasers, the solution is completely non-violent and poses no threat to its users.”

Retired CIA Security expert and Advisor to WanderSafe, Thomas Pecora believes there are three important principles of personal safety that have been engineers into WanderSafe’s product: Information, Environmental Awareness, and Equipment. WanderSafe™ delivers on these with an integrated hybrid of hardware and software and in partnership with the world’s leading anti-trafficking organizations including Airline Ambassadors, CrimeStoppers International, and Purchased.org.

The WanderSafe device will be available on Indigogo and USD $79.95 RRP. WanderSafe will be available for FREE to download from October 2, 2018, in iTunes and available for Android users via Google Play November 1, 2018.

For more information about WanderSafe, to interview Thomas Pecora, Tracey Regimbal or Stephenie Rodriguez or to make an appointment for a product demonstration please contact Stephenie Rodriguez on +61416089000 or email stephenie@jozuforwomen.com

The response for not only contestant applications has been positive but companies wanting to showcase their product as an ingredient for the contestants to use. She adds, "We could have gone the route of typically Canadian ingredients, but are looking at showcasing companies that aren't as typical as their counterpart. One example is Birch Syrup. We love that The Canadian Birch Company wants to share the gem of Manitoba with our Canadian and overseas viewers."

History Publishing Company Launches Patrick Andrews Novel

A riviting novel written in the James Jones tradition

Author in the early days

First of Five Novel Commitment Hits Cyberspace; readies for print takeoff

Claybourne Barracks is a work that examines the inner soldier and his place in the military culture. It is a perfect fit in the pantheon of great American military literature.”

— Donagh Bracken

PALISADES, NEW YORK, US, September 29, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The writer many consider to write in the tradition of James Jones and Ernest Hemingway agreed to write five novels with military settings for History Publishing Company. The first, "Clayborne Barracks", a story set in a U.S. Army Barracks in Indiana in the early summer of 1894, is the first. In the classic Jones tradition, one soldier is up against the establishment in an early Twentieth Century Army.

A veteran of the U.S. Army’s 82nd Airborne Division, the author, like Hemingway, knows of what he writes and that knowledge brings life to his characters. When he creates, he creates so truly that when subsequent events occur they are natural consequences. Like Jones who followed Hemingway, Patrick Andrews following Jones, peers into both the soldier’s life and soul in both combat and stateside as he struggles with his inner self and his relationship to the world outside.

“History Publishing Company is honored to have Patrick Andrews bring his novels to our expanding historical fiction imprint,” said publisher Donagh Bracken, “'Claybourne Barracks' is a work that examines the inner soldier and his place in the military culture.It is a perfect fit in the pantheon of great American military literature.”

Patrick Andrews is a military novelist of long standing; many of his early works dealing with the U.S. Army’s early days in the American West. He was also contracted to write screenplays for the television production of "The Unit", a fictional series about a U.S. Army Special Forces unit.Having served in the Army’s 82nd Airborne Division he knew well of what he wrote.He brought that knowledge and feel to "Claybourne Barracks" which will be available worldwide through the electronic distribution services of Amazon, Barnes and Noble, KOBO, Overdrive, and six others. It will be released in print in November, 2018.

Gov. Cuomo must remove convicted sex offenders from group homes

Governor Andrew Cuomo has ignored countless pleas by Civil Rights and Disability Rights Advocate Michael Carey to stop all illegal and unconstitutional practices and to finally protect our most vulnerable from preventable sexual assaults and rapes, but he has refused.

Now caught, Gov. Cuomo and his administration must stop the illegal placements and remove all sexual predators from group homes throughout New York State.

I could have stayed in that house for years and abused him every day without anybody even noticing at all. It was a predator's dream.”

— Stephen DeProspero – convicted sexual predator and pedophile

ALBANY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, September 29, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Jonathan Carey Foundation is gradually rolling out the numbers of convicted sex offenders found in state and private facilities and group homes for people with disabilities. People in many different positions of authority and parents are outraged.

Here are some direct quotes published by the Gazette Editorial Board on September 26, 2018;

Editorial: No sex offenders in state group homes

Safety of developmentally disabled residents should come first

“No matter how carefully you monitor convicted sex offenders, and no matter how benign their behavior might be because of some developmental disability they might have, these convicted criminals should not be placed in intimate proximity to their potential victims.

Yet, they are, with the state’s full knowledge and blessing.

That practice needs to end.

The Jonathan Carey Foundation, named after a boy killed in a state-run residential facility in Niskayuna in 2007, used the state’s open records laws to discover that 12 group homes in the state have been housing nearly 40 paroled Level 2 and 3 sex offenders.

Level 3 sex offenders are considered at the highest risk to commit another sex crime and harm others, while Level 2 offenders are at moderate risk.

These sex offenders are being placed without notice in group homes along with other special needs people, according to state Sen. Rob Ortt, chairman of the Senate’s Mental Health And Developmental Disabilities Committee.

State officials say this has been a practice for years.”

“There’s no way a Level 2 or Level 3 sex predator should be around vulnerable individuals like these, no matter how much they’ve been vetted and how much treatment they receive.”


This news is from the Adirondack Daily Enterprise story on September 27, 2018;

Sex offenders in group homes for disabled isn’t new in Tupper Lake

“An analysis showing dozens of sex offenders being housed in state group homes has received news coverage from several print and television outlets, but this practice of housing sex offenders in group homes for the developmentally disabled and alongside the general community is old news in Tupper Lake.”

“Last week, the Albany Times Union, Glens Falls Post-Star and Channel 13 from Albany spoke with Michael Carey, an advocate for the developmentally disabled, who linked records of 25 registered sex offenders in Washington, Franklin, Suffolk and Saratoga counties with the addresses of OPWDD facilities in each county.”

“McMahon told the Enterprise for a past article. “As a former employee, I know that some of these people [in group homes] are very dangerous sex offenders.”

“There have been many incidents there where clients have attacked staff,” McMahon said. “There’s been incidents there where residents from Sunmount have actually grabbed a female employee and tried to drag into a bedroom.”

“In 2015 Thomas Perrault was found guilty of third-degree assault after he dragged a female staff member into his room and attacked her at Sunmount’s group home at 390 Hosley Ave.”

“Sunmount’s main facility is situated directly across the street from L.P. Quinn Elementary School and bordered by residential neighborhoods. It’s group homes are located in neighborhoods.”

Almost all sexual assaults and rapes reported to Governor Andrew Cuomo’s abuse hotline numbering in the thousands are purposefully never reported to local police. Rarely are sex crimes committed against the disabled in New York State ever criminally investigated or presented to county elected district attorney’s which is obstruction of justice. Within the New York State Office of People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) alone approximately 1,300 sex abuse cases are reported annually, which are staggering numbers, yet approximately only 3% of these sexual assaults will ever be reported according to a reputable report called Prevalence of violence.


This Television piece puts the nails in the coffin of exposing this corruption;


“It is illegal to place convicted sex offenders and sexual predators in group homes to easily access and prey on our most vulnerable. Multiple State and federal laws are without question being violated. Moving convicted sex offenders into group homes with the developmentally disabled, which in most cases is no different than moving them in with children knowingly places our most vulnerable in a likely position of being sexually assaulted or raped.” – Michael Carey –Civil Rights and Disability Rights Advocate

Here is what a convicted sexual predator and pedophile said of New York State’s mental health care system, it is “a predators dream.”

"The lack of supervision there made it easy to do what I did," DeProspero said in a handwritten affidavit obtained by The Associated Press. "I could have stayed in that house for years and abused him every day without anybody even noticing at all. It was a predator's dream."


Numerous appeals have gone to Governor Andrew Cuomo or Attorney General Barbara Underwood by Michael Carey, U.S. representatives, New York State legislators, District Attorney’s and family members to immediately stop these crimes that directly endanger our most vulnerable. To date, both Governor Cuomo and Attorney General Underwood are looking the other way.

Your help is vitally needed to protect and defend those that cannot speak or defend themselves.
If you would like to help advocate and protect our most vulnerable and help fight to end this extreme corruption, please consider making a tax-deductible gift to the Jonathan Carey Foundation.
