The National Catholic Prayer Breakfast (NCPB) was created in response to the call of Blessed John Paul II for a “New Evangelization, new in ardor, methods and expression.” Since 2004, the NCPB has attracted Catholics, both lay and ecclesial, for worship and fellowship. We gather to thank our Lord for His abundant blessings upon our country, and to ask His intercession in protecting our freedoms.

  1. Rich says:

    Everyone should check out George’s statements and attitude at the GLADD Accountability Project. You will read his own words. Then decide if you want to spend the dollars to hear him speak.

    1. Brian says:

      So you have a problem with Catholic teaching. I question whether you would spend the dollars to hear anybody speak at a Catholic event.

    2. Rand says:

      The following is what GLADD reported about Professor Robert P. George. I am delighted to hear that he will headline the Prayer Breakfast. Please keep in mind the clear intent of GLADD reporting is the defamation of anyone who claims that marriage can only be between a man and a woman.

      Here is the unedited GLADD blog on Professor George:

      Well-connected scholar and professor with anti-gay ideology, co-founder of NOM, Professor at Princeton, Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, and Senior Fellow at the Witherspoon Institute.

      Facts

      – Decried the NY marriage vote by looking back to a time when being gay was “beneath the dignity of human beings as free and rational creatures.”

      – Argued that gay relationships have “no intelligible basis in them for the norms of monogamy, exclusivity, and the pledge of permanence.”

      – Suggested that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo shouldn’t be considered a Catholic because by signing marriage equality into law, “he has made it clear that he simply does not believe what Catholicism teaches about sexual morality and marriage.”

      – Said marriage equality is “about sex,” not about love, commitment, and responsibility. Admitted he believes gay relations to be immoral: “The idea that is antithetical to those who are seeking to redefine marriage is that there is something uniquely good and morally upright about the chaste sexual union of husband and wife—something that is absent in sodomitical acts and in other forms sexual behavior that have been traditionally—and in my view correctly—regarded as intrinsically non-marital and, as such, immoral.”

      – Calls for “national rebellion” against marriage equality in the United States

      – Drafted the Manhattan Declaration, a manifesto signed by Orthodox, Catholic and Evangelical leaders that “promised resistance to the point of civil disobedience against any legislation that might implicate their churches or charities in abortion, embryo-destructive research or same-sex marriage.”

      – Says he and his allies will defy “man-made law” that conflicts with their view on “God’s law”

      – Said anti-gay soliders are now suffering under their own version of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell

      – Diminished trans kids and their need for protection; contrasts trans girls with “real” girls and frames equal access/nondiscrimination laws as blow to responsibility and respectability

      – Sits on the Board of an organization that supports and funds anti-Islam extremists.
