Famous CATHOLIC Priest SUSPENDED

La Crosse Bishop William Patrick Callahan suspended Father James Altman from the priesthood on July 8 and removed him as pastor of St James.

Callahan punished Altman via a July 8 note sent by FedEx, Altman told LifeSiteNews.com. He became one of the most famous clerics in the USA when he produced an election video supporting Donald Trump. Titel: “You Can't be a Catholic and a Democrat. Period” The video (below) generated several million clicks.

In May, Altman was asked by Callahan to resign as a pastor but he refused. At the end of June, he announced that his ousting was imminent. Now, Bishop Callahan used the summer holidays to commit the injustice. After the suspension, Altman is not allowed to celebrate any public Mass nor hear confessions.

Fr. Altman is NOT Jesus, nor is he an Old Testament Prophet. He is a Priest of Holy Mother Church under the full and immediate authority of his Bishop, unto whom he owes absolute obedience in the fulfillment of his priestly VOW.

Fr. Altman is NOT Jesus, nor is he an Old Testament Prophet. He is a Priest of Holy Mother Church under the full and immediate authority of his Bishop, unto whom he owes absolute obedience in the fulfillment of his priestly VOW. If he intends to further his usefulness in the cause of our Lord Jesus Christ during this time of great darkness and unparalleled evil, he MUST emulate the righteousness of untold numbers of Holy Saints and even Doctors of the Church - who cast themselves at the feet of The Blessed Mother and placed themselves under her protective Mantle as they yielded to the unjust edicts and persecution of their superiors - and humble himself in silent obedience to the commands of his Bishop.

There is just NO WAY around it: he is not a “Free Man” with the liberty, independence and autonomy to say and do whatever he wills or pleases. He gave all that up when he took on the constraining vows of his priesthood. Regardless of the unfairness of his Bishop’s actions, Fr. Altman has no grounds upon which to rebel against the orders given him. If he is truly innocent and in the right, he must trust the Lord to fight for him, and wait in patient submission and obedience for the Lord’s vindication. Otherwise he cannot expect Heaven to intervene and stand with him in his defense.

In this epic struggle that we face throughout the whole Church, there is no room whatsoever for exalted attitudes of self aggrandizement and the fleshly promotion of ones own ambitions and personal or political agenda. There is no room for any such foolishness on the frontlines of this battle for the souls of men. No, we must instead marshal all of the SPIRITUAL weapons imparted unto us by Our Lord Jesus and join with Him and the Host of Heaven against the demonic forces seeking to ravish the Church and obliterate her holy mission. To be victorious in this battle we need Heaven on our side.

Thus, Fr. Altman must know that he cannot hope to obtain recourse from Our Lady and find favor from her for his cause, if he doesn’t turn from his rebellion and repent in penance for his stubborn insubordination and the impertinence he has shown in his refusal to OBEY the authority of those whom the Church has deemed it proper to place in rulership over him.

We do not need the chaotic destruction of a narcissistic “Loose Cannon” at the forefront of this fight. Nor do we need any Hollywood-style Superstar-type Priests who, in their prideful self-exaltation, use their voice and influence to incite the rabid ferver of those seeking to advance certain political platforms and agendas.
NO, FATHER MUST BE SILENT.

When your Bishop supports a government that suppresses the Holy Mass the Priest is right to speak out. Jesus swept the moneylenders from the Temple. The Bishops and Cardinals of the USA are a disgrace to their robes. Most are the spawn of Satan.

He needs to follow the example of Saints and martyrs throughout the ages, and entrust his life into the hands of the Lord, as he suffers any wrong done to him and fulfills his VOW of obedience to his Bishop.

He needs to follow the example of Saints and martyrs throughout the ages, and entrust his life into the hands of the Lord, as he suffers any wrong done to him and fulfills his VOW of obedience to his Bishop. If he were truly a “holy” Priest he would submit to the authority of his Ordinary and obey his edicts - just like many holy Saints have done for centuries who were persecuted or believed they were being wrongly treated by their lawful superiors. The Lord and the Host of Heaven will not fight for you if you yourself are in rebellious violation of His ordinances and principles. Father Altman needs to submit in humility to the authority of Holy Mother Church, obey his Bishop and be silent, or he is no better than those whom he castigates in his infernal rantings and ravings.

@SonoftheChurch What about the wrongs done to the flock?? You bet, silence the truth, right? Ten to one you go to mass in shorts and sandals. Tell that to St Joan of Arc who was excommunicated.

@SonoftheChurch What about the wrongs done to the flock?? You bet, silence the truth, right? Ten to one you go to mass in shorts and sandals. Tell that to St Joan of Arc who was excommunicated. The smoke of Satan has entered many of these bishops and they need to have their sodomite, obese asses dragged out into the public square, stripped of their vestments and hung from a tree for misleading so many souls. How much silence should you have when "souls are falling into the abyss like snowflakes."????

Our Lady stated ..."good priests would be persecuted..." The wrongs Fr. Altman speaks out against are mostly the wrongs being done to those entrusted to his care and other persecuted priests who are defending the true teaching of "Holy Mother Church", like poor catechesis; not only the wrongs done to him. How many more abuse victims do you need? How much more Eucharist abuse are you going to put up with? How much more silence on abortion, euthanasia, birth control, homosexuality, transgenderism, indifferentism, "we have a reasonable hope that all men are saved" crap are you going to put up with?

How many more Churches are you going to let these sodomite bishops pull the kneelers out of? How many more "gay masses" are you going to turn your face away from or go tuck your head in the sand and pretend they aren't happening? How many more empty churches are you going to ignore? How much more misappropriation on funds are you going to be apathetic about? How many more of our schools are you going to let our kids be indoctrinated in? We need more priests to stand up and object to this darkness within the Church and we need to support them, not judge how holy they aren't.

@SonoftheChurch @The New Knights Templar I don't think these situations are alike. I just thought I would point out that when St Padre Pio was restrained from saying Mass publicly and he complied, it was false accusations from a jealous woman against his morals that had been made that caused him to be sent into confinement since they became confused about his known piety. There was never any question as to whether or not he was teaching the Truth. Church Legal Authorities doubted there was any Stigmata as was claimed, and they thought the situation wasn't good! In a way they quite RIGHTLY silenced him until they discovered him to be innocent and a holy warrior of God - and they had feared him to be set on forming a mini cult and was not a virtuous monk..

They try to accuse Fr Altman of being either too holy or being divisive for telling the Truth. The Cowardice of his Bishop since the Bishop is embarrassed by all this attention, is the REAL sin! Fr Altman quite rightly causes a stir, revealing ALL that Christ seeks to enlighten us with including those facts nobody mentions any longer, the moral absolutes, that New Church seek to push under the carpet so the likes of James Martin can convert people instead ! You don't need a Church Tribunal to state that Fr Altman preaches Truth & need not resign., He is not accused (as St Pio had unjustly been) of lack of virtue. Fr Altman's morality is not questioned - some just do not like hearing Truth taught. May Christ support Him as he speaks Truth.

@Caroline03 @SonoftheChurch Well said. The evil in the Church has a tendency to use the same words the secular anti-religion establishments use, such as "divisive". But who appoints the word divisive as a bad thing? It is all rhetorical manipulation to lead people astray from the Truth. Our fallen nature is divisive, it is the way things are, we are at battle with evil forces and being …More

But who appoints the word divisive as a bad thing? It is all rhetorical manipulation to lead people astray from the Truth. Our fallen nature is divisive, it is the way things are, we are at battle with evil forces and being divided from them is necessary. We can't have unity with good and evil, Truth and untruth. The only path to heaven is the path of Truth, and there are those in our Church, and they are many, that do not want the Truth to be heard so they silence it.

You’re either with Christ or against Him! There is no in between.

Being with Christ, as a bona fide member of His Church, means obeying the chain of command, especially when you've taken a vow of obedience to do so.

Obedient yes but not to sin or evil or being lukewarm.

What about James Martin ?when is he going to be cancelled ? he is not ? i wonder why .Father Altman he has a louder voice now ,because of those bishops who cancelled him , He is on the right side for he will win
stjoseph2
Lol, if you haven’t realized it yet, let’s just say that the entire mess the world is in could never have happened without the support of the clergy and our weekly tithe.
Ultraviolet
Of course it could, @stjoseph2 Protip: "our weekly tithe" (or its suspension) has no bearing on the non-Catholic secular world's promotion of various evils.
stjoseph2
False! Tearing down altars, writing books promoting gay unions, extravagant beach houses to practice those unions, etc. etc. all cost money. None of these are free. Where do you propose the money comes from, thin air?

He should keep speaking out and so should we but it would be nice if he was a little more polished and professional. You can call them corrupt sons of bitches more politely and not create side issues.

They came after Father Altman and he can’t baptize or say Mass publicly.

If, upon hearing the news that Fr. Altman's faculties have been suspended, your only concern is the need for Fr. Altman to obey, while ignoring the injustice of the command given by his bishop, then you've succumbed to the distorted one-sided modern Catholic view of obedience.

Bishop Joseph Strickland of Tyler Texas said he will take Father Altman into his diocese.

Another Holy priest silenced, this is just heart breaking and it will NOT end, unfortunately we may very well see the end of this holy man as we have seen with others before him. These worldly bishops such as Callahan, Mulvey & many more will see their skulls pave the pathway to hell if they do not publicly repent for the scandel they have created.

No canon of crime or even "disobedience" is quoted. It reads as a last attempt to cajole him into *behaving* like other priests

Here is the decree. Bp Callahan (dbrannon@diolc.org) is acting more like tyrant than shepherd.

In these times persecution comes not just from the secular sphere it seems for modernist Bishops don`t like the truth about themselves, traditional Catholicism is never to be mentioned to them.
