Youtube desecrations

The Eucharistic desecration story is gaining visibility
Jovan-Marya Weismiller, T.O.Carm. sent this to the Yahoo group Catholic Monarchists...

SPRING GROVE, Penn., Oct. 1 /Christian Newswire/ -- Today, responding
to a worldwide protest from Catholics, the internet video sharing
site YouTube has removed 40 videos showing horrible desecrations of
the Holy Eucharist from its site. The account of the author was also
suspended.

Catholics are thrilled and prayers of thanksgiving are being offered.

The video removal petition was circulated by the Catholic group
America Needs Fatima and 18,201 people signed it in only seven days.

For over a month, an individual from Canada had posted 40 videos
showing the Holy Eucharist being stepped on, burned, stapled, smoked
and nailed to a stick -- even flushed down the toilet.

The videos shocked Catholics and caused America Needs Fatima to
launch a petition on September 23 asking YouTube to remove the videos.

"I was never so offended in my life," said Michael Jordan, who joined
the petition from Marysville, California. "The videos were pure hate."

The petition spread like wildfire. America Needs Fatima webmaster
Joseph Ritchie said: "I never saw so many people sign a petition so
fast. They came in from all over the world, even Russia."

"We're now sending YouTube a 'thank you' note." Mr. Ritchie
said. "The 'thank you' message lets Catholics tell YouTube how happy
they are with the videos being removed."

"It's important the staff at YouTube see that Catholics not only have
courage to defend the faith, but courtesy to say 'thank you' as
well," he said.

For more information on the 'thank you' message to YouTube, or for
interviews, call Robert Ritchie at 717-309-1990, or go to www.ANF.org

Thanks to Jovan-Marya Weismiller, T.O.Carm. with a tip of the beret and a prayer for Grace during the day.

Dieu le Roy!
