Roman Catholic Church Fires Popular ‘Alt-Right Priest’ for Calling Democrats ‘Godless’ and Refusing them Communion

It’s official; popular Priest James Altman been officially removed from the office. In a statement released by La Crosse diocese, they explain:

“The obligation of a bishop is to ensure that all who serve the faithful are able to do so while unifying and building the Body of Christ…Bishop William Patrick Callahan, in accordance with the norms of canon law, has issued a decree for the removal of Father James Altman as pastor of St. James the Less Parish….The decree is effective immediately and for an indeterminate period of time. During this time Father Altman, must refrain from exercising the function of pastor.”

James Altman, dubbed the “alt-right priest” by critics, served at St. James the Less parish. He amassed a large following on social media and earned the ire of local leftists along with his Bishop, William Callahan, for partaking in the aforementioned sins:

(Saying) ‘anti-Black and LGBTQ+ rhetoric, stating that all Democrats are “Godless” hypocrites going to hell, spreading misinformation on vaccines and COVID-19, frequently appearing on far-right media platforms and more.’

Two months ago, upon hearing that this was in the works, Altman made the announcement of his likely termination on his YouTube channel, telling the congregation:

Unfortunately in our cancel culture, if the Left whines like they do, like a spoiled brat, often enough they succeed in canceling so many voices of truth. And now they are whining like, if I may say it, the pansy babies that they are, to cancel me…allegedly because I’m divisive, as they like to say, or as a bishop has stated to me, ‘I am ineffective.’

For the record, dear family, Bishop Callahan has asked me to resign as pastor as of this past Friday, two days ago, because I am divisive and ineffective. In response, my canon lawyer asked for clarification as to the justification, and a chance to review what was in my file that suggested I was so divisive and ineffective.

And I say all this only because I’m no expert on canon law, but understand only that while we are contesting the Bishop’s request, he could in theory appoint a parish administrator whilst I remain a pastor without duties until the appeal goes through Rome, which could take upwards of a year or more.

Altman disputes that he is ineffective, pointing to the fact that despite earning growls of rage from progressives and nods of appreciation from conservatives, the church has flourished in every way possible, with attendance being up nearly 102 people and already doubling last year’s total in donations and tithes given.

What really is at play here, dear family, is that other shepherds are offended because I simply state the fact that they abandoned their sheep in a time of need as you’ve heard me say so many times.

If this alleged virus was allegedly a fraction as dangerous as they said it was, all the more reason to keep our churches open and get you the sacraments so that you stayed in a state of grace. They put your eternal souls at risk – they despise me for speaking that simple truth.

Despite the biblical truths that Altman is advocating for, it is beyond tragic that he is a Roman Catholic and therefore has no hope of salvation lest he repents of his sins and believes in Christ by faith alone.

  1. Let’s hope this will prompt this brave man to ditch the Catholic church in favor of an authentic one.

  2. What the Catholic hierarchy is doing here is awful. I surely do not support many of the doctrines of the RCC but their leaders are showing themselves to be agents of the Marxist regime. Mr. Altman is being subjected to “re-education” and restriction of movement for as long as his bishop wants to abuse him, without any stated charge against him. Mr. Altman is a conservative Catholic firebrand. But this seems mostly to come from his sermon saying you can’t be both democrat and Christian. Here’s an excerpt from “Father Altman speaks about suspension, ‘I’ve had incredible peace, regardless of what happens to me:’”

    “The decree also states that he is to continue to live within the Diocese of LaCrosse, where he has been instructed to meet with the Vicar for Clergy at least once a month, and has been “invited to begin” a month-long “spiritual retreat” to help him to “spiritually heal” and “address the issues that caused the issuance of this decree.”

    “The order states it is in effect as long as “cause” is present, but it does not specify what the cause is. Callahan said he asked Altman to resign on May 23 for being “divisive and ineffective.”

    Altman first triggered backlash from his bishop when his video “You cannot be a Catholic and a Democrat. Period” went viral last year. Altman shared that in response to this, his office “got the most vile, despicable phone calls, letters” and “some terrible, really foul messages.”

  3. An alt-right person on Twitter was arguing with me that Jews don’t automatically go to heaven because they are Jewish. He said “it racist to believe Jews are the chosen people because of their race. They deny Christ” This was 2015!! I knew they were all racists, anti-semites and Nazis back then. This trend has gone now from trolling to domestic terrorism. By the way, I got that alt-right anti-Semite banned from Twitter and fired from his job and many more since. The alt-right has ZERO place in our society!! Punch Nazis and fascists!!

    1. ‘Alt-right’ is a made-up, idiotic term coined years ago by the left-wing media, and continues to mean whatever the person using it intends.
      BTW, if you actually believe that Jews “automatically go to Heaven because they’re Jewish,” you know absolutely nothing of Scripture or The One who inspired it.
      Here’s some homework for you – borrow someone’s Bible and look up “Blessings and curses.”
      Knowledge is a good thing, I seriously suggest you obtain some.

      1. Dr. Scooter is pushing “replacement theology” which is anti-Semitic. This is hate speech, illegal in most states and countries. Obviously Dr. Skooter is alt-right terrorist supporter. Report him

        1. Sorry, Johnny, but individuals on this site, including myself, aren’t your clueless, uneducated social media hacks – most of us know the Bible as much as you apparently do not. Educate yourself. Repent. Don’t do drugs. Drugs are bad, mkay?
          insert tiny flags of assorted countries here

  4. “The obligation of a bishop is to ensure that all who serve the faithful are able to do so while unifying and building the Body of Christ…”

    You cannot achieve this when you bring unrepentant and practicing sinners into the church

  5. ” it is beyond targic that he is a Roman Catholic and therefore has no hope of salvation lest he repents of his sins and believes in Christ by faith alone.”
    The Protestia individual who hides behind the title of “staff writer,” needs to explain how he/she knows without a doubt the mind of God.

    1. Don’t kid yourself about the RCC, while they may have commonality with protestants on social issues like abortion the official RCC teachings (all of which this priest taught before he was defrocked) like the propitious nature of the mass and transubstantiation in the Eucharist are anti-biblical. The RCC elevation of the Virgin Mary to be a “co-redemptrix” and the canonization and prayer to special “saints” as an avenue to achieve a favorable response from God are straight up blasphemous. And that’s to say nothing about the so-called “treasury of merit” that you can gain access to through penance, pilgrimage, or payment to reduce your time in the Vatican’s unbiblical and made-up pergatory.

      All it takes is the Bible to know what the mind of God is when it comes to things like salvation and all it takes to know that the Catholic Church isn’t in line with God’s will is their own teachings.

  6. He should start his own church and take 1/2 of his parish with him. You don’t have to be recognized by Rome to teach about God
