Congrats to the Archbishop!

Abp. Dolan was apparently responsible for "booting" Call to Action's annual convention (all 30 members and their Geritol-wagon) from the Cathedral premises, according to a loud screech heard by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

As had earlier been reported by Get Up and Get Moving, Fr. Carl Last had authorized the meeting. Curiously, Fr. Last was unavailable for comment.

Lois Ahlhauser, a past president of Call to Action Wisconsin, and her husband, John, said they had arranged with Father Carl Last, rector of the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist, for their group to hold its annual meeting from 9 a.m. to noon April 8, with Gumbleton as one of the speakers.

Last did not return a call for comment earlier this week. He was gone and not available for comment Friday afternoon, according to a staff member in his office.

...probably celebrating the Feast of St. Patrick. Or perhaps engaging in Lenten penances given by the Archbishop under "particular law" applying only to him for this egregious error in judgment (or flagrant 'in-your-face' bitch-slapping...take your pick.)

But we seriously doubt that the geriatrically-supercharged "Call to Action" crowd was the real problem, even with the promise of Bp. "Gumby" Gumbleton, gadfly-extraordinaire, who was recently given the door AND the boot from his Detroit office.

The problem was "Action Wisconsin." You don't have to know a lot of Catholic theology to figure out that this bunch is flat-out opposed to the Catholic position on gay "marriage"--or gay "adoption."
