Focus on the issue

Some would like to distract from the issue. Michael Coren has done it. There are some others that have criticized Barona and myself for our campaign. They can hold their perverted views, we prefer to speak the truth with clarity and support those who do brave work; the work of Christ and first in our minds in this regard is Mary Wagner and her sacrifice and her own mother whose heart bears its own spear. We will never forget the reason why she does it.

Those such as Coren who would undermine her character and those others out there, barking up the wrong tree and brought to my attention today [you know who you are] that would impute motive to us and to her, need to consider their consciences. Instead of focussing on the truth and the reality of Mary's imprisonment,  you have perverted our motives.  What have you done brother? What have you done about this but reveal your own inadequacies. 

The pressure  by this blog and Barona will continue until Catholics wake up and consider the evil before us. 

Here is the open letter from Jane Wagner to the Editor of the Catholic Register who has this week printed a guest column by Alissa Golob (below) to challenge Coren's mutterings.

An Open Letter to "The Catholic Register", by Jane Wagner ~ "this is a story worthy of publication, but you have been silent..."

Dear Editor

I had not intended to write to you after Michael Coren's scathing indictment of my daughter, Mary Wagner. I do not believe he is deserving of a reply; his "opinion" was both spiteful and childish. Beyond that, to continue to discuss the topic of Mary's incarceration, in the way that he does, makes it about Mary, and that is something she clearly never wanted. Her focus has always been, and will always be, the babies, who lives are being taken every day at the abortion mills in cities all over our country. We Canadians, we Catholics, have become numb to the killings and have demonstrated daily that we don't care, at least not enough to do something about it. 

I am writing to you, not to convince you of my daughter's purity of motives, because she doesn't need defending. You need only to meet her to know that she is real, that she lives and breathes the Gospel of Life with all of her being. I am writing to let you know that I am greatly disappointed in your paper, one which ought to herald a story that affirms so deeply the value of human life in the womb. That one person would renounce her freedom, her youth, and her own future, speaks clearly of the value of these little ones. She has raised them up for our collective consciousness by her willing sacrifice. It really is about these precious babies. Mary has taken to her heart the words of our great St John Paul II to "be not afraid", and to follow his lead in disobeying an illicit law that permits abortion. 

“Abortion and euthanasia are crimes which no human law can claim to legitimize.... In the         case of an intrinsically unjust law, such as a law permitting abortion or euthanasia, it is never licit to obey it..."  St John Paul's exhortation in The Gospel of Life.

This is a story worthy of publication, but you have been silent about it. 

So, why does The Catholic Register stoop to publish absurdity such as Coren has penned? As an editor of a Catholic newspaper you should uphold the Teachings and the Truth given to us by of our Catholic leaders, our saints, our Popes. Instead, you publish a deplorable article from a man who has never spoken to or met the woman he is vilifying. Clearly, you have failed in your duty to write the Truth in a Catholic manner this time around. 

God bless you. I hope you do better next time.


Jane Wagner

Although I did not read the article referred to, I did catch a number of snippets of Michael Coren interviewing some woman about Mary Wagner. He was condescending in his tone and, at times, mocking the guest's answers. I saw these snippets on a Catholic podcast called I was deeply disappointed in Mr. Coren for he most certainly hid what should never be hidden. He is Catholic. That means in all discussions, interviews, debates, etc., he should be seeking Truth. It was quite clear that he had no intention to listen, but rather went in to the interview prepared to mock the woman and all she had to say about Mary Wagner. As for the so-called Catholic Register, they, too are not concerned with Truth if they are printing Coren but not Mary's Mom's open letter. May God bless Mary, protect her, and give success to the work of her hands, give success to the work of her hands.
