Cardinal Cupich to appear at ecumenical conference coordinated by Wiccan priestess – LifeSite

(LifeSiteNews) — Left-wing Cardinal Blasé Cupich is set to appear at a scandalous ecumenical event in Chicago this week. The conference is coordinated by a Wiccan priestess and features more than 6,000 representatives of various forms of pagan and non-Catholic sects. 

The 2023 Parliament of the World’s Religions is being held at McCormack Place convention center from Tuesday, August 14 until Friday, August 18. Its theme is “A Call to Conscience: Defending Freedom and Human Rights.”  

Cupich will appear on a “luminary” panel alongside Presbyterian minister Jennifer Butler and Rashad Hussain, who serves in Joe Biden’s State Department and who previously worked in the Obama administration.

United Nations Secretary General António Guterres as well as dissident Catholic Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi are also scheduled to address the conference.  

The event’s first meeting was held in 1893, also in Chicago. Cardinal John Gibbons of Baltimore controversially attended that gathering along with several other liberal U.S. clergy who later came to be associated with what then-Pope Leo XIII called “the heresy of Americanism.” 

In 1895, two years after conservatives voiced their opposition to the meeting, Leo condemned the conference and forbade Catholics from attending future ones out of fear it would give the impression the Church viewed other religions to be true or good in themselves.

Liberal bishops around the world continue promoting heterodox views on homosexuality, female priests, divorce, contraception, and more — advancing anti-Catholic positions that jeopardize the salvation of souls.

Such bishops often sideline, ignore and even persecute traditional Catholics who simply ask that the Faith be preserved and passed on to their children.

But traditional Catholics cannot be silenced any longer, which is why we are uniting in this international boycott of modernist bishops and dioceses until the deposit of Faith is upheld by the hierarchy again. 

SIGN: We will not fund modernist bishops or priests who undermine the Catholic Faith, but rather direct our contributions towards faithful clergy and orders that work for the salvation of souls.

There are countless examples of bishops working against Christ’s Church in calling for divine law to be ignored in favor of sexual, doctrinal and liturgical deviancy, even trying to clamp down on Catholics who practise the Faith. 

Just last year, Cardinal Cupich banned traditional prayers after Mass, and more recently has curtailed the Traditional Latin Mass in his diocese. 

The attack on the Faith is out in the open, with modernist bishops causing scandal in countless ways:

We have seen enough. Now is the time to show true Catholic unity against those who undermine the Faith – do not be bullied into submission by these men who would disfigure Christ’s Church.

JOIN THE BOYCOTT & SHARE! Tell everyone you know to STOP giving money to bishops who attack the Catholic Faith.

“We therefore commit to a financial boycott of modernist bishops until the hierarchy resolves to uphold the entire deposit of Faith.”

If the bishops refuse to uphold and protect the teaching of Christ’s Bride, the Catholic Church, then we must refuse to support them until they repent. 

Thank you 

P.S. — Demanding that liberal bishops be held to account through financial boycott will help save the Church from doctrinal and pastoral ruin. This is the first step in restoring the Faith for future generations. Our time is now, so please join us by signing today!

Phyllis Curott serves as the program chair for this year’s event. A self-described “Elder Witch” and author, Curott took a not so veiled swipe at former President Donald Trump, as well as at other politicians who refuse to go along with the Deep State agenda.

“This existential, expanding and global scourge [of authoritarianism] is manifesting in tyrants and strongmen who commit crimes against humanity, suppress essential freedoms, subvert democracies and murder the truth with lies,” she said at a press conference ahead of the gathering.

“They are fostering hate and the resurgence of antisemitism and Islamophobia, misogyny and racism. They are attempting to misappropriate religion to justify the unjustifiable,” she added.

On her YouTube Channel, Currot has posted videos that explain her love for Tarot cards and that show viewers how to cast spells. 

In an article posted on the Chicago Archdiocese’s website, Cupich said that this year’s gathering is an opportunity for Catholics to “live out the Holy Father’s teaching that a core part of our identity as Catholics involves building friendship between members of different religious tradition.” 

Social justice workshops are being held at the conference

On Tuesday, August 15, a “climate repentance ceremony” was conducted at the meeting.

Also on Tuesday, Yael Eisenstat, vice president of the left-wing Anti-Defamation League’s Center for Technology & Society, called for stricter policing of free speech on social media.  

We need an “inclusive online” environment that will “amplify women and underrepresented voices,” she demanded

So-called Dharma Masters from the New York-based Tzu Chi Buddhist Center participated in the conference’s opening ceremonies while a “Parade of Faiths” was held in downtown Chicago to kick off the gathering on Tuesday.

The World Parliament of Religions is a global non-governmental organization affiliated with the United Nations Department of Public Information. Its board of trustees is composed of people of all religious backgrounds. It acts, more or less, as the spiritual arm of the United Nations in that its primary purpose is to promote the green agenda, wokeism, and other liberal policies. 

The last time the Parliament of the World’s Religions met in Chicago was in 1993. Then-Chicago Archbishop Joseph Bernardin, also a notorious liberal like Cupich, spoke at the event as well.
