Chris Heath, Vain Dana Point Catholic Priest, Continues Claim that Catholics Are Persecuted

Heath: Driving a Prius while the county's poor Catholics lose their schools
The last time we had checked in on Christopher Heath, a priest in the Catholic Diocese of Orange, he had just shut down his personal blog, which had such gems as pictures of his personal trainer, him driving in a Prius, his just-whitened (with what???) teeth--oh, and a bunch of posts claiming that all those nasty sex-abuse victims were trying to destroy the Catholic Church.

Heath is still at the Catholics-are-persecuted game down at St. Edward the Confessor in Dana Point, as he railed about that point this past Sunday during a sermon.

According to the orthodox Catholic website California Catholic Daily, Heath's sermon was on the myth being promulgated by the nation's Catholic bishops: that President Barack Obama is bringing back the Inquisition by telling the Church and its institutions that they must provide birth control to its employees. It's a big-ass ruse, but one that has been successful and only shows how wussy the lamestream media is in considering anything uttered by a group of men who protected pedophiles to be legitimate.

"The world thinks we're a bunch of idiots who need to be forced to do what they think is best," Heath told the St. Edward faithful, whom CalCatholic reported an onlooker said, "For his efforts Fr. Chris received a rousing round of applause from the vast majority of those present."

"Contraception and abortion are bad for the soul, bad for marriage, and bad medicine," Heath continued--and he'd know this how?

Actually, Chris, the world thinks Catholics are a bunch of idiots for supporting pedophile apologists such as yourself, your bishop, and the lot of your crew. Ever preach about the guy who was there before you, rapist John Lenihan? And the other four pedo-priests that St. Edward hosted? Of course not--that would require courage, of which you have none. Stick to posting weak, vaguely homoerotic pictures on your personal blog--and heckuva job, Brownie!

Mitch and others, there is a reason Gustavo is a reporter for such a "respected" and "renowned" publication as the OC Weekly.  His objective isn't reporting the truth, but rather it's about sounding hip and cool to his young readers.  Name the 4 pedo-priest that St. Edward's has hosted!  I know of 2.

This is a man who has no moral fiber.  He could care less about anything or anyone other than himself.  Like many others, he uses the recent sexual abuse cases to label all priests as pedophiles.  Should we then label all Hispanics as "serial homeless killers" ala Itzcoatl Ocampo??  Fr. Heath's message, beyond the selective quotes you so cleverly used in your article, was to suggest contraception has led to a lowering of moral standards, a rise in children born out of wedlock and a reduction of women to sexual objects.  He reminded Catholics to take all this into consideration when they go to the polls.

You may not understand any of this during your macho 20's, but it will hit you one day when you grow up and have your own family cool guy.

I think he has a point.... Catholics, Christians and Jews are all targeted.  Look at your cover story of the dead tree version.  Bruce Gleason isn't just spreading atheism, he has taken up the mantle of the high priest of non belief, and he does it by poking monotheists in the eye.  What if someone with the same fervor as Bruce went after... lets say....Muslims, what would we think? 

Easy... We would call him Terry Jones!  

But since christian bashing is "en vogue" we look the other way or giggle when it happens. I know for a FACT that if I called Muslims terrorists as much as you call Catholics Pedo-priest  defenders you would call me a racist... a bigot... a know nothing.

Teachers lately are the ones diddling little kids, yes you report on it...  I doubt you call all teachers Pedo-teacher apologists.  Than again the CTA scares me more than the catholic church so you may be right in not doing so!

Wow...Gustavo shows every sign of being an unthinking, yellow-journalism slinging bigot. Such ugliness!

Dude, whatever happened to you in that sacristy must have been horribly scarring.

I've never called all priests pedo-priests; just the ones, you know, that are pedo-priests. But to apologists like yourself, one slap against your beloved princes is like Saladin all over again.

And my apologies about the number of pedo-priests at St. Edward. You're right: it wasn't 4; it was 5. John Lenihan, Denis Lyons, Michael Pecharich, Henry Perez, Gerald Plesetz, and Siegfried Widera. You can look it up!

And let me just guess your response Gustavo ..... "you're just another pedo-priest protector, pendejo".  It's a wonder someone of your talent hasn't moved on from OC Weekly after all these years.

Anyone who isn't 100% for open borders, welfare for illegal immigrants, ignoring immigration law, or who doesn't turn a blind eye to the disproportionate rates of [crime, teen pregnancy, welfare use] among 'Latinos' is a bigot and a know nothing.

I was never an altar boy, and funny that you have to concoct disgusting tales to try and figure out why I'd report the truth—but, then again, you're a pedo-priest supporter supreme.

Wow, now I need to apologize again. It's not 5; it's six! And Lenihan, Perez, Pecharich and Widera were vicious rapists—wonder why that's not in the St. Edward history? Feel proud, Croat!

Standard tactic, can't discredit the charge, go after the witness.

I was being a smart ass... 

I was in the air wing so we didn't live in such close qtrs but occasionally whenever we got our "boots" aka newbies, some of them wouldn't wash their coveralls or flight suits and they would start to stink.. We strapped them down to a trailer and run them through the "bird bath" which is basically the aircraft wash area... and let them get blasted with high pressure water.  then when you were done we would drive up and down the flight line so they could dry off... and so the other squadrons would see... It was also straight up hazing.  I wont lie!  Looking back, not such a great use of taxpayer money but gas was only a buck a gallon back then.

Now that you mention it, we had a guy in my bootcamp company that wouldn't shower, and yup, we had to force him too. Not in quite such a 'hands on' way.

Typical apologist bullshit evading. Any parish that openly welcomed the known rapist Lenihan deserves all the disservice one can heap on it, especially when it's the truth. Stick to whining about whites and leave the truth-unveiling to the rag you hate to hate.

So far I've found no reports of abuse *happening* while these guys were at St. Edwards if they were there are all --Lyons was at St. John the Baptist in CM, Widera at St. Martin de Porres in YL) .

 I know people who are pretty involved at St. Edwards, and it seriously does a disservice to the parish and to the late father Knight to suggest that abuse was happening there. At worse, it seems St. Edwards was a dumping ground, perhaps because the hierarchy knew that Knight wouldn't put up with the shit.

Footage of the Anaheim 'Colonists' locker room, from  Klavito's days as second string Left Out on the  JV practice squad has surfaced. It totally explains his obsession.

HA! Only a homophobe like you would think that, since you're always longing for something worthy of Lexington Steele...

What charge would that be--that the guy delivered a sermon? Oh the every-so-slightly veiled accusation ("his just-whitened (with what???) teeth"  ) that Heath has been sucking c*ck. 

Class act as always.
