Fr. Bryan Hehir’s buddy, Jack Connors, is at it again.
The Boston Herald is reporting that Jack hosted a gaggle of major Democratic donors on Monday night at a ritzy closed-door “friend-raising” event, reminding them that they are necessary for President Obama’s 2012 re-election bid.
It’s not just that we couldn’t have won without you. We will not be able to win again without you,” Biden told a crowd of 110 supporters at the Hancock Towers office of Boston powerbroker Jack Connors. “Our shot at getting re-elected is through you and the same way you did it the last time.”
Bryan and Jack are long-time buddies from their time when Jack was on the board at Catholic Charities.
Jack’s a busy guy these days also raising money for the memorial to another pro-abort, pro-gay politician, the late Sen. Ted Kennedy. Here’s how the Globe described the Biden visit to Jack’s ritzy digs at the top of the Pru:
One of the two meetings is taking place in the personal offices of Jack Connors, the local advertising executive who has been spearheading the fundraising effort for the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate, according to a Connors assistant and a top local Democrat who saw the invitation.
We’re wondering if Fr. Hehir has ever mentioned to Jack how the Catholic Church is opposed to abortion and “gay marriage,” and how Jack should work on the salvation of his soul and stop leading people to sin by rejecting any involvement with people who promote the killing of the unborn or “same-sex marriage.” Or has Cardinal O’Malley ever mentioned it? Here’s a suggestion for them–just share Matthew 6:19-24 “You cannot serve God and mammon” and tell Jack he has to choose one or the other–which will it be?
Nah, no one wants to be confrontational with Jack. Better to be confrontational with religious sisters, like the Daughters of St. Paul, and deny them the ability they’re been fighting for since 2005 or 2006 to manage their own employee pension funds and push them into filing a lawsuit in the Supreme Judicial Court to recover $1.4 million owed to their employees. The person mostly responsible for jerking around the sisters seems like it’s Chancellor, Jim McDonough, who is basically acting as CEO of the archdiocese along with Archbishops Connors and Hehir. We covered them all before, about a year ago, when we wrote about Fr. Hehir and Friends Completing Coup of the Boston Archdiocese.
Turns out the Chancellor’s 5-year term is up for renewal right about now. If he, acting on the Cardinal’s behalf feels it’s OK to jerk around the good sisters at the Daughters of St. Paul, we think orthodox Catholics should send him a message that kind of behavior isn’t appropriate here in the Catholic Church. Boston Catholic Insider just launched a FedUp campaign to let the Cardinal know people want him to replace the Chancellor. Click here to jump right to the form. We agree, it’s time for a change, except we’ve been calling for that for a year. Not sure why it took them guys so long to reach the same conclusion we did a long time ago, but we accept their late realization.
