VICTORY: Msgr. Anthony Frontiero has resigned from the board of the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute. Sign the petition below if you think the other two board members -- Robert Royal of the Faith and Reason Institute and John O'Sullivan of The National Review -- should join him.
A prominent Catholic priest serves on the board of a right-wing hate group whose leader just said that liberal professors "should all be taken out and shot."
Monsignor Anthony Frontiero leads St. Joseph Cathedral in New Hampshire, and is a recent former member of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace.
But he also serves on the board of directors of the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute, whose president made headlines last week for his remarks that "the human-hating people that run modern universities should all be taken out and shot."
While the president was forced to apologize for his "poorly chosen words," his organization continues to work for the passage of draconian laws criminalizing homosexuality. The Southern Poverty Law Center has warned that the organization is "aiding and abetting anti-LGBT forces in countries where anti-gay violence is prevalent."
Monsignor Frontiero's involvement is helping this hate group masquerade as a legitimately Catholic organization -- and undermining Pope Francis' efforts to focus the Church on Christ's radical message of love.
