Op-Ed: Alabama Priest Mocks Defrocked Father Frank Pavone

Fr. Frank A. Pavone, National Director, Priests for Life, President, National Pro-life Religious Council, in 2014 speaking with Currents News about New York’s abortion mills, said to typically be never inspected and mostly unregulated.

LAKE GENEVA, WI –  I’m saddened and angered — though not exactly surprised given the current state of the Church — that Frank Pavone has been dismissed from the priesthood. (I could utilize whataboutery and point out apparent double standards, but … I won’t bother. It is what it is.)

What also saddens me is that a fellow priest would publicly mock and make light of Pavone’s laicization.

Father Stephen Vrazel, pastor of St. Mary Parish in Mobile, Alabama, did just that by tweeting on Dec. 17: “Father Frank Pav-owned.” See the tweet below.


Big Tech is using a content filtering system for online censorship. Watch our short video about NewsGuard to learn how they control the narrative for the Lamestream Media and help keep you in the dark. NewsGuard works with Big-Tech to make it harder for you to find certain content they feel is 'missing context' or stories their editors deem "not in your best interest" - regardless of whether they are true and/or factually accurate. They also work with payment processors and ad-networks to cut off revenue streams to publications they rate poorly by their same bias standards. This should be criminal in America.

Pavone isn’t perfect by any means (none of us are, of course), but he’s been a champion for the innocent unborn – not to mention a spiritual counselor for women hurt by abortion — for many years. He deserves praise and respect for that, especially from a fellow priest.

If you’re so inclined, dear reader, I urge you to politely express your concern to Vrazel about his offensive tweet.

And pray for Pavone and our Church leaders.

Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us.
