Lots of folks are aghast that Steve Bannon, the executive chairman of the anti-Semitic, misogynistic, Breitbart News, is now chief strategist and senior counselor to President-elect Donald Trump. Meanwhile, official Foxpriest, Fr. Jonathan Morris tweets about the awesomeness of Mr. Bannon. Seriously, not kidding.
Breitbart news network is a vile cesspool of nasty stuff. Here is just a small sample of what passes for real journalism in Breitbart world: "Bill Kristol, Republican Spoiler, Renegade Jew;" "World Health Organization Report: Trannies 49 XS Higher HIV Rate;" "There's No Hiring Bias Against Women In Tech, They Just Suck at Interviews;" "Birth Control Makes Women Unattractive and Lazy."
Now that we've established that Breitbart is peddling some stuff that, one would think, might not be in accordance with Catholic teachings (but then again...), let's take a look at the actual character of Steve Bannon. He was once charged with domestic violence. The charges, however, were dropped due to witness unavailability. During his divorce proceedings, his then-wife alleged that Bannon didn't want his kids attending school with Jewish kids who, Bannon allegedly thought, are "whiny brats."
According to conservative writer Ben Shapiro, Bannon "is a legitimately sinister figure" who has embraced white nationalism which, memo to Fr Morris, is racist! The Anti-Defamation League (according to Breitbart, "anti-free speech") says that Bannon and “his alt-right are so hostile to core American values."
But here's Morris telling us that Steve Bannon is wonderful.
I've known Steve Bannon as a close friend for nearly fifteen years. I've never heard or seen a racist word or action from him.— Fr. Jonathan Morris (@fatherjonathan) November 13, 2016
If you're judged by the company you keep, it looks like this Foxpriest is hanging with some seriously bad company.
Maybe Fr. Morris should take some time away from his pastoral duties to read a little Breitbart for a different perspective on his BFF! Ya think?
Maybe this is still the case but I find it odd he’s so connected to the alt-right sewer of racism, misogyny, and anti-Semitism. But wait… I just outlined Fox’s ‘traditional values’. Never mind. 👍
I wonder how Dolan manages junior priests who espouse communism or man/boy love at every opportunity?
