Anti-Catholicism in Northern Ireland:
Always at the Heart of the Problem

Father Sean Mc Manus
The Irish National Caucus, 413 East Capitol Street SE
Washington, DC  20003 Tel: 202 544 0568; Fax: 202 543 2491

Father Sean Mc Manus will explain how anti-Catholicism has always been used in Northern Ireland to ensure Protestant/Unionist/Orange supremacy and British rule.  However, the British Government under Tony Blair now seems no longer interested in propping up a sectarian anti-Catholic state. Therefore it should become increasingly apparent to the world that the core of the problem has always been about extremist Protestant/Unionist/Orange reluctance to accept the concept of equality with Catholics.
And Fr. Mc Manus poses the question: Could the latent (and not so latent) anti-Catholicism in some sections of the media be part of the reason why the American media largely ignored the problem in Northern Ireland, except to condemn the IRA? (Remember the noted American historian, Arthur Schlesinger has termed anti-Catholicism as " the deepest bias in the history of the American people").
Fr. Sean Mc Manus, a native of County Fermanagh -- one of the six counties (out of Ireland's 32 counties) that make up Northern Ireland, still under British rule. He is a noted expert on the Irish issue. As president of the Capitol Hill-based Irish National Caucus, he has the unique record of working on Capitol Hill since 1978, lobbying the U.S. Congress or, as he puts it " working for justice and praying for peace in Ireland".
The Irish National Caucus is nonviolent, with no foreign principal. It is neither Democrat nor Republican, but dedicated to getting both Parties to stand up for justice and peace in Ireland.
Fr. Mc Manus has based his Special Ministry on the teaching of the Church which states " Action on behalf of justice  is a constitutive dimension of the preaching of the Gospels" ("Justice in the World". Synod of Bishops, Rome 1971).
From the Mail: Professor Fernando M. Gomide of Petropolis, Brazil writes: Profiting the “lift” I am sending you the present floppy disk with a work on the NEO s, false and genuine private prophecies and as well Bible prophesies.  It is all in Portuguese.  Well, there are many language departments at the numerous American Universities, and so, if you are interested in the subject consider it would not be difficult to obtain a translation.  That would not be the case in this abominable country called Brasil (highly leftist, heathen and politically corrupted community).
    Am sending also the papers on the actual infinite in logic, mathematics and physics.  Walter Gomide do Nascimento Jr. is my 2nd degree cousin who is finishing now his doctor thesis at the PUC (Pontificio Universideda Catolica) department of philosophy.
Best regards to our Catholic friends of CAS+E.
In Christ and Mary,
Dr. Patrick THEILLIER, Head of the Medical Bureau, President of the International Medical Association of Lourdes writes: I have well received your letter.  I know well the Pontifical Athenaeum Regina Apostolorum in Rome, where I have already given a conference and where I will give another soon.  I am happy that Dr. Coan  spoke on miracles of Lourdes on the 29 of September. Felicitations.
Considering your Book Catalog, could you think to include my book in English: “Talking About Miracles,” Redemptorist Publications.  Thank you very much. Sincerely Patrick  (translation by FJK)
De. E. Michael Jones, Publisher of Culture Wars writes:  Dear Frank,
I have the Solzhenitsyn book (on the Jews in Russia) in German. I'm planning to read both volumes as soon as I finish the chapter on Freemasonry and the French Revolution. My daughter-in-law has a copy of the original Russian version. This should be translated into English and she could do it with help. But the book has clearly been blacklisted by the publishing industry. All the best, Mike
Lady Jeanne Ficarra writes (concerning Dr. Marcin‘s talk on Modernism):  Dear Frank, This sounds like an interesting presentation. Whenever you have one like this during day hours, let me know.
Academican Rafael Waters writes (concerning Dr. Marcin’s talk on Modernism) :  This sounds a great lecture, Frank, and hits right in the center of our culture. How they can betray the Church after taking the anti-modernist oath is difficult to understand. Also, why they do not take it now is even more difficult to understand--except they don't know the meaning of it.
My lecture to the CAS (Catholic Academy of Sciences) was leaning in the same direction as Dr. Marcin's lecture.
It was good meeting you last Saturday.
“How Capitalism Dismantles Catholic Culture”
A spectre is haunting Roman Catholics in the United States: the increasingly insistent campaign to associate libertarian capitalist ideas with orthodox Christianity. This campaign is actually an old one, beginning in Europe in the aftermath of the Revolutions of 1848. Catholic Social Doctrine developed in the context of rebuking what was really a liberal Enlightenment effort to exploit justifiable fears of materialist Socialism by demanding submission to an equally materialist Capitalism. A special Roman Forum conference on November 5th is designed to demonstrate that, far from being a foundation for Catholic culture, modern capitalism annihilates the Catholic vision. It will demonstrate that supporters of a “free market”, unrestrained by the Church's Social Doctrine, like supporters of power politics, accept the fallen order of nature as the scientific framework for life, and prohibit efforts to restore all things in Christ. In short, it will show that “no one can be a sincere libertarian capitalist and a Roman Catholic at the same time.”

President’s Message:   Thanks to Fr. Rafael Pascual LC, Fr. Jose Maria AntonLC, Atty. Mark Ryland  and Philippine Consul Jerome Castro our special meeting in Rome was a great success.  The great Roman Schools are actually making a joint graduate program with a specialization in the relations between Science and the Catholic Faith.  That way specialists can be trained in this interdisciplinary field and they can qualify for jobs in interdisciplinary departments everywhere!  Angie and I were able to get Pope Benedict XVI’s blessing at his Sunday Oct. 9, 2005 Angelus Service at St. Peters.  I will try to summarize our Italian trip and put it on the web site at  I can also send DVDs or VHS tapes of the meeting.  Angie and I are going to Japan and Holland soon.  Pray that we get more good results for the growth and health of CAS+E.
At our Meeting on Sept. 28 we were asked to pray for Rebecca Hatef, a seven year old child seriously ill with a brain tumor.  We should also pray for Mr. Richard Hanna and all of our sick members and friends.  
Best Regards, Frank Kelly
