I attended a Confirmation last night in Birmingham, AL. This was the second time I had experienced "Bishop" Foley conduct this sacrament. He follows a set routine: after asking questions and making comments related to living "your faith", ensuing they not do the things Christ wouldn't want you to do (premarital sex, drugs, crime), do things Christ wants them to do, and then he begins his famous "young peoples' music" portion of the routine. Prior to the Mass he had asked each their favorite music and noted the responses. At this point he reports the results to the "community". Responses ranged from "metal to rap" and included "Notorious, 36 Mafia, Slipknot", and others. Amid the laughs and all around jovial attention focused on his performance, he states (as he obviously always does) that he goes out and buys some of the music and listens to it as he travels around the diocese. His comment that some of the music lyrics 'may not be good' were low but his comments of how the lyrics are good were the most impressionable to the "young people" and some adults. So, as he had instructed those to be confirmed to live their faith (above), he told them plainly that music which includes sex to the point of violence, drugs, killing, anarchy, profaning the name of God, etc. was acceptable. Later he and the "community" priest imposed hands on the confirmees and with outstretched arms blessed the group.
Thank you very much for the information about the “Bishop” who listens to, and encourages others to listen to, evil heavy metal, rock and rap music. Your e-mail shows us again that the Novus Ordo/Vatican II religion is truly a new religion devoid of Catholic Faith and holiness. It’s always good to know what kind of things are going on at the Novus Ordo churches (if one can find out about them without partaking in them), for all of this apostasy at the local level serves to prove that the Vatican II sect is not the Catholic Church. However, we must tell you in charity that you cannot be going to the Novus Ordo “Mass” or “Confirmation” ceremony, since they aren’t valid. One must avoid them under pain of grave sin, and actually confess (to a validly ordained traditional priest) that one attended a non-Catholic service (for however long one was going) before one receives Communion at a Traditional Mass. If you need more information or convincing on this point, please check out our video on the New Mass.
