Anonymous Hackers Threaten Diocese With Blackmail if They Don’t Reinstate Gay Teacher…

… In other words, be bullied to surrender your moral convictions; the left’s “tolerance” where all your morals are belong to us.

Sources, here and here at Catholic Bandita.

As the Diocese of Columbus is standing firm on the decision to fire a teacher who is openly living in a lesbian relationship, Anonymous readies the hammer to drive the nails into the Body of Christ as the group has issued a public threat of blackmail against the diocese.

The hacktivist group, Anonymous, is threatening to dig up dirt on members of the Columbus Catholic Diocese if a fired gay teacher is not allowed to return to her job at Bishop Watterson High School.

I’m not too worried. After all this is the same organization that tried and failed miserably to hack the Vatican’s website. A website that, I remind you, looks like this…


Behold the power of the impregnable parchment background!

I’ve got so much more on this to write but my time is short at the moment. I do want to note; expect a post soon on how this isn’t about homosexuals and their “rights” – this is an exercise in conformity.

    They couldn’t shut down the Vatican’s website. Just bring it.

      That’s right. I almost forgot about that.

        Their Facebook page has only 50 “likes” but even a few people can disrupt ordinations, and I am hearing on Twitter that this is what the plan is. There are ordinations to the diaconate tonight at 7pm at St. Joseph Cathedral. Pray for Columbus and for Bishop Campbell especially, and for peace at the ordinations.

    I actually hope they dig up more immorality. Only if we are indiscriminate in our persecution of sin, can we fight the moral relativism of the age. Only with Objective Values, can we fight Subjective Values.

    This is extremely creepy to me.

    Anonymous doesn’t seem to read the fine print; the problem here was that the teacher signed a contract with a morality clause stating she’d live in accordance with church teaching. She, herself, publicized that she doesn’t. For a third party to dig up dirt is something completely different; say they found another teacher, volunteer or whoever, who wasn’t living in accordance with Church teaching and publicized it, while they’re going out of their way to cause scandal by sharing that information, it isn’t at all the same for a third party to share the information as for that person to share. Especially when their tactics are questionable; while I don’t know what the standards are for an archdiocesan investigation of something, I do know that the police can’t use evidence that was obtained illegally and think it likely that if the Church canned someone based on Anon’s evidence, they’d have a lawsuit on their hands as I don’t envision Anon doing anything so ordinary as hiring a PI to follow someone.

    I’m not a fan of blackmail — nor hypocrisy. I hope the school fires all the divorced teachers, too, and those who fill prescriptions for contraception, and all of them who are making no efforts to hide their “immoral” lifestyles. The school has a right, as a private religious institution, to maintain the “purity” of their employees, but I hope it’s consistent.

    • terentiaj63

      I think you mean divorced and remarried outside of the Church. And how exactly would you find out who is using contraception? This teacher’s problem came from openly causing scandal. Would you also fire gossips, backbiters, overeaters, the greedy? I truly hope you are without all sin, else the accusation of hypocrisy in the Church is just a little bit ironic.

      • Lisa Twaronite

        Yes, I mean divorced and remarried outside the church. And contraception has to be purchased — surely, evidence of these purchases comes to public light sometimes? Yes, I would also fire gossips, backbiters, overeaters and the greedy, if I were going for 100% purity — but when I served on the board of a Catholic school, that wasn’t anyone’s goal. .

          HIPAA laws protect medical information which includes prescriptions. Even then, the pill is sometimes prescribed for other medical reasons and that doesn’t go against church teaching.

          • Lisa Twaronite

            There are many, MANY different kinds of contraception besides the pill.

          • Nan

            Yes, and previously you had specifically referenced records for prescription birth control coming to light, in response to which I pointed out that prescription records are protected under HIPAA.

          • Lisa Twaronite

            Not all prescription birth control is the pill. A teacher filling a prescription for a diaphragm at her local pharmacy might also buy some spermicide to use with it, and might not feel as if she as anything to hide. Because, let’s face it, most of the time, she doesn’t.

          • drea916

            And not everyone who is on the pill is using it for birth control…and the church says that’s ok.

    I don’t think Anonymous is left or right. I think they are just anti-authoritarian, which is why they are targeting the Vatican.
