Is Fr. Peter West Being Silenced?

Many of you know Father Peter West of Human Life International or follow him on Twitter (@fr_pwest) and/or Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/people/Peter-West/576926938).  He is known for posting his views on conservatism and political current events.

Well, it seems that the media is going after him now. Mark Mueller, a reporter for NJ.Com has been following Fr. West's posts and has written a story describing the passionate priest as an "internet flamethrower." The story has brought the Archdiocese of Newark to investigate Fr. West and limit his free speech which is entitled to him as an American citizen. Mueller is accusing Fr. West of bashing liberals describing millennials as"cryins," and "snowflakes."







Jim Goodness, the Diocesan spokesperson stated, "We are concerned about Father West's comments and actions, and will be addressing them according to the protocols of the Church." Fr. West is a Trump supported and has spoken out against Hillary Clinton and the Democratic party. In light of Newark's new archbishop, Cardinal Tobin, many are speculating that the situation will not go well for Fr. West since the new cardinal has voiced his opposition to Trump's policies. Many are worried that Fr. West may be silenced by his bishop. Please contact Jim Goodness, Director of Communications at 973-497-4186, goodneja@rcan.org to voice your concerns.
