  • David E. Lucas

    Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a pollutant; the cause of climate change; and if we don’t restrict its production it will damage the environment’s ability to support life, possibly beyond repair. That’s some seriously bad stuff. I say they are not only false, but also blasphemous because they imply GOD makes mistakes. If these statements are true; creating life in a way that gives that life no choice but to produce carbon dioxide would be a mistake; or creating an environment susceptible to damage from CO2 would be a mistake. You could even conclude that commanding that life GO FORTH AND MULTIPLY would be a mistake. I say GOD created life the way HE did, HE created the environment the way HE did, and ordered the life HE created to GO FORTH AND MULTIPLY, because HE knew CO2 is not harmful in any way and poses no threat to the environment. Remember GOD created carbon dioxide too, and HE made it heavier than air (nitrogen & oxygen) so, gravity pulls it down onto plants. GOD created plants with the ability to absorb CO2, separate the carbon, combine it with water to form carbohydrates (food) and release the oxygen back into the air. HE did this deliberately to facilitate recycling food and oxygen. Is that not the way you’d expect an environment designed to support life to work? Someone is lying; either GOD makes mistakes and CO2 is really bad or GOD knows CO2 is harmless.
    People die from severe weather events and this alone warrants a demand for action. If CO2 is the cause and it were up to me, I’d show the science that supports me, and I’d make sure it became “common knowledge”. I’d employ scientists to translate it into easy to understand terms, but even if I couldn’t find easy to understand terminology, I’d stick to the facts and never stray from the truth. Fortunately (for me) they chose another path. Everything I’m about to write can be confirmed.
    According to environmentalists melting glaciers are creating or swelling rivers that (eventually) dump their waters into the oceans. The combined waters from all these rivers add enough to raise sea levels by one inch per year. This sounds: logical, plausible and easy to believe; as long as you ignore the fact that over the worldwide surface area of all oceans, seas, lakes and every other body of water; evaporation occurs on a constant basis. Okay, maybe not where water is frozen. Personally I find it impossible to believe the total evaporation is only one inch per year. Was this a deliberate attempt to mislead? Was it, in fact, a lie by omission? Is there any way it could’ve been an oversight?
    They also claim that melting ice and snow in the Arctic makes it more difficult for polar bears to hunt seals. Really? Which is faster, more agile on dry land; seals or polar bears? Is this just a ploy to coerce children to pressure mom & dad to make changes they failed to convince them to make, through reason, facts and the truth? They could’ve chosen to say “melting Arctic ice and snow will make it more difficult for seals to avoid being eaten by polar bears”. Maybe seals are just not cute enough; even Coca-Cola went with polar bears. Does this meet the definition of “LIE”?
    Hold onto your hats; here comes the whopper. David Suzuki actually told young children the melting Arctic ice and snow would lead to drowning deaths for everyone at the North Pole and that means no more Christmas. This happened a few years ago, but I’m sure it’s still on the internet somewhere. It may even remain on David Suzuki’s website. This is not only a lie, but it’s a disgusting lie. Why would anyone who has science and the truth on their side tell such an awful story? Can you blame me for concluding they have no science and the truth is not on their side? Can you blame me for wondering what else they say is a total lie?
    I’ve invited various individuals (including Al Gore and David Suzuki) to show me, or tell me about the science that has them so convinced CO2 is the cause of climate change and most of my requests were back when they were actively recruiting supporters. They should’ve been eager to share the science, but they didn’t provide any for me to examine. Who hides the truth, if it supports their narrative?
    If you agree with me, then like me I hope you are unable to sit back in silence. Join me in challenging the lies. Let’s tell everyone CO2 is not a pollutant, not the cause of climate change and not going to hurt our environment’s ability to support life. If, on the other hand, you believe I’m lying please point out where and how I’m lying. I’m not looking for money, but I can’t do this by myself. Please help me.
    Plus, I wonder what all this doom and gloom is doing to children.
    People currently worry about the mental well-being of young children who overhear their parents arguing. This fills them with stress and fear that their fighting parents might split up. Now if this happens there’ll be no shortage of relatives assuring the children it was not their fault. What if the source of that fear and stress is Climate Change? They hear the television news reporting on what the environmentalists say is going to happen if we don’t reduce our production of CO2. They see: the protesters demanding more be done; they see the amount of auto traffic not shrinking, a lack of effort from government or individuals (including their parents) implies an absence of caring, they hear the president talking about the pollution of CO2 and hear the urgency in his voice – a deliberate attempt to inspire action and they realize that because it’s claimed we are the cause, they know as human beings they are among the “Bad Guys” of this story. At some point they also realize that every time they exhale they contribute to the problem, the catastrophic consequences and there’s no shortage of people reminding them that as human beings it is, in fact, their fault and the inevitable conclusion is that one of the potential solutions to the problem involves them not breathing any more. Can you possibly say with any confidence this will not result in any suicides. How many would be acceptable?

  • Marisol

    Fr. Corapi our prayers are with you. For the greatest of saints are always persecuted, have they not taught us the teachings of Christ and Holy Mother Church? If he is righteous the Lord himself will defend him in due time. Our faith is always tested, we are to embrace suffering as our Lord did.

    Fr. Corapi is still teaching many through his previous videos online! Always preaches the Truth!

    Exodus 4:12
    Now go; I will help you speak and will teach you what to say.”

    Matthew 6:25
    “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?

    Matthew 10:18
    On my account you will be brought before governors and kings as witnesses to them and to the Gentiles.

    Mark 13:11
    Whenever you are arrested and brought to trial, do not worry beforehand about what to say. Just say whatever is given you at the time, for it is not you speaking, but the Holy Spirit.

    Luke 12:11
    “When you are brought before synagogues, rulers and authorities, do not worry about how you will defend yourselves or what you will say,

    Luke 12:12
    for the Holy Spirit will teach you at that time what you should say.”

    Luke 21:12
    “But before all this, they will seize you and persecute you. They will hand you over to synagogues and put you in prison, and you will be brought before kings and governors, and all on account of my name.

    I felt moved to finally, after all these years look into what supposedly happened,why Fr. Corapi is no longer publicly ministering to God’s flock. I converted 7 years ago to the Catholic Faith due to this priest’s unwavering and unapologetic preaching of the Gospel. His Realness was something that was always missing in my search for Jesus. All I had ever found was hollow and shallow faith. No substance.. Nothing tangible.. Father Corapi taught me suffering and pain can be united with Christ’s suffering. He taught me so much about my beautiful new Faith and God used his witness to bring me home to Himself. I love Fr. Corapi as a priest, as a fellow Catholic and as someone I pray I will be blessed enough to worship God together with in heaven one day. I will continue to pray for him and ask that he continues to pray for all of us, Christ’s flock who miss his zeal and his realness. God bless our Catholic Church and all of those priests who struggle with their mission from God. I lift them all up to God in His great and unfathomable Mercy.

  • Anne

    Is “The Teaching of Jesus Christ” by Father John Corapi still available? Frank , in his note said it was a 48part teaching on CD-audio covering the Catechism of the Catholic Church. I would love to have one for my Grandchildren and for myself.
    Thank-you Anne

  • Frank

    Several years ago I purchased “The Teaching of Jesus Christ” by Father John Corapi. A 48 part teaching on CD-audio covering the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Every Catholic should have a copy of the CD’s. Father Corapi explains in detail each section of the Catholic Catechism. Only God and Father Corapi know the truth about what he has been accused of and we should love him, forgive him and leave the judging to God. He preaches the word of God and we need him.

  • Linda Lind Bowman

    I know the Good that came from Father’s teaching and preaching.
    We pray that Father comes back into the fold of the Catholic Church where he belongs-truly.
    God bless and take care of you,

  • Grace

    Love this Great Man Of God Father John Corapi who Told It as it Is. Missing you Dreadfully Father C. The World Knows You Are Innocent of these Allegations!!

  • Joe & Charlotte Savarese

    I’ll try this again. FATHER John, we are not of the Catholic faith. You, however, have given us awareness, encouragement, & new ways of seeing truths. Your absence has left a dark void, that was once filled with the Light of Christ’s love and teachings with the story of His saving grace for mankind. You have said, satan comes for the leaders first. Don’t let him win. Put your ‘combat boots’ back on! The world misses you!

  • Joe & Charlotte Savarese

    FATHER John, we are not of the Catholic faith. However, you have been such an inspiration, a blessing, & encouragement for us. We, of course, have no idea of the basis for your absence. We only know there is a vast, dark, void that you once filled with the Light of Christ & His salvation story for mankind. Please don’t let that void remain. Please don’t let the dark side win. You said, satan comes for the leaders first. Put your ‘combat boots’ back on!

  • Christine

    Still praying for you, Fr. Corapi! You are still a priest and you need to do whatever it takes to return, even if it means ‘eating crow’…your humility and honesty will light a fire among many. Please prayerfully consider your return to active ministry. We will love you and pray for you always.

    P.S. …and don’t think you are not worthy of these comments…are any of us worthy of any of the blessings we receive? We are all broken sinners and need to repent and return to doing the will of God.

  • Pauline

    Dear Father Corapi, when I would hear you talk, I know the Holy Spirit is with you. I am not giving up hopes that you will be back again one day soon! I pray! Please come back! We need priest like you to keep us going in a straight line, and lead us to heaven! one day!

  • ed gordon

    Father Corapi, I’m giving it up to God. I’m asking the Blessed Mother of Jesus to pray for your soul and bring you back home to the Catholic Church. SHIPMATE! Square your stuff away and get back to work!

    Dear Father Corapi,

    Please come back to the church. My family misses you so very much. We need a shepherd like you to guide us towards our Lord, Jesus Christ, especially during the times that we are about to embark. We are praying for you.

  • fr. corapi I wounld like very much to hear from you again. I enjoyed your sermons so much. they were plain and clearand Ibelieve at you lived what you preached.Ido notknow what has happen but I wound like to see you on tv again. thank you for your witness for the Gosple james

  • Elmira Greenly

    Fr. Corapi, I would just like to hear from you again! The silence is deafening! You have gone away and have left us without a shepherd! Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to us, when He left and went back to the Father. Please send us a message, so we know how you are getting along. We are concerned for you, and care about you!

  • Justina godinho

    Dear Father Corapi,

    Please come back. I miss your teachings very much. You showed us great courage and endurance through Mother Mary in your preaching. I was shocked very deeply. Pls forgive everyone and come back, we need you. I will pray for you. Pls Father your heroic return to the Ministry
    will save many souls.Lord Jesus I pray, by the guidance and light of Your Holy Spirit lead our father back to his ministry and grant him victory through Your Precious Blood.

  • James

    Dear Father Corapi, please come back. You would probably not return to public ministry, but your priestly sacrifices are still needed!

  • father corapi i miss you so much you helped ma and so many others i will keep you in my prayers

  • Michael

    The man saved my life, as well as my soul, and I WILL NOT desert him in his hour of need. I will continue to pray for him, that this huge cross be lifted from his shoulders soon. I also pray for the poor misguided soul who started all of this, for she knows not what she is doing. In the process of trying to destroy Fr. Corapi, she unwittingly destroyed millions of others like myself, who long to hear his words from the pulpit. I pray for because her burden MUST be great.

  • lesley turnbull

    Will we no longer be able to find any of Fr.Corapi’s teachings online? Is that what it means that he is no longer “Fasther”, he is still a priest, but w/o title-is thawt it? All I know is that if not for two people, Father Corapi and Mother Angelica and EWTN I would not haave considered becoming Catholic but would still have remained a So.Baptist as I was raised by both sides of my family. They are all gone now, but before my mother died she used to see my in front of the T.V watching EWTN and ask “are you Catholic now?” as was her father, for who I was named. He died before I was even born so I had no Catholic influence in my life. The teachings I received from listening to Father Carapi was invaluable in opening my eyes to the truth and I thank him for it. I just hope that the church’s treatment of him, his name and reputation do not influennce my decision since I have not yet been confirmed (although in my heart I already consider myself a Catholic. It is onky because Ihave disabilities that make it difficult to attend church, that I hqave not yet joined formally, and been confirmed. My lo9cal church is mostly hiispanic and so is the mass, but I digress. It is Father John’s problems we are addressing. I wish to announce that I support him in alll of his decisions, but hope he will NOT become “invisable”. I will continue to pray for him, no matter what I hear that may be detrimental.

  • declan

    john corapi is a wonderful priest that tells it as it really is,i wish there were more priests like him globally,as he is even honest about his past and his sins and mistakes,and may god bless his soul

  • Skippy Helm

    I am so sorry to hear of your troubles. Please remember, we are all sinners, some more than others. I would not wish to hold my past up to scrutiny, for others to criticize. You have disappointed me, severely, but I am willing to forgive(if it is in my power, which it probably is not). Until this untoward incident, you have been an inspiration to my family. You may think me a fool, and, perhaps, I am, as I have done many foolish things in my life.

    Assuming your military career is accurate, we were in the same class at Jungle Operations Training, in Panama, in April of 1970. YOU ARE IN OUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS, AS I HOPE WE ARE IN YOURS.

    REMEMBER: Things Are Never As Bad as They Appear, and There’s Always Better Days Ahead.

    You think you’ve got troubles? Think of David and St Augustine. They make you look like a choir boy.

  • Tim

    I’m sure you already thought of it, but you may want to scrub all references to Fr. Corapi on your website since he no longer considers himself “Father”.

    ____________

    Thanks Tim!

    We already removed his post some time ago, out of respect for Church authority. This post is the lone exception, since he still is a priest and still needs our prayers.

    God bless,

    FATHER CORAPI HAS A VERY DEEP DEVOTION TO THE BLESSED MOTHER. HE SAYS SHE IS A WARRIOR SHE WEARS ARMY BOOTS!! KEEPING THIS IN MIND I KNOW IN MY HEART THAT MARY WILL CARRY FR.CORAPI TO THE END OF THIS SCANDAL AS A VICTOR! WE MUST ALL PRAY FOR FR CORAPI EVERY DAY BY OFFERING UP THE ROSARIES IN HIS NAME GOD BLESS FATHER JOHN CORAPI FOR HELPING SO MANY LOST SOULS

  • GOD see’s all.”the power of the LORD is so powerful that it is beyond the debts of the human mind”.

    father corapi you are in my prayers.

  • Toni Hilton

    I am not Catholic, but I am praying for Father Corapi. My first introduction to Fr. was his conversion story that my son saw on facebook last summer. The testimony related to my son’s and he was amazed at the the passion with which this Catholic priest spoke. I watched it, and also saw the fire of God in his eyes and his spirit. John the Baptist did say that he baptized with water, but there is One coming after me who will baptize you with fire and the Holy Ghost. Intrigued, I began watching EWTN and realized that he had a show that came on occasionally and watched every time I could. I pray that every hidden thing of darkness pertaining to the accusations against Father Corapi are revealed in the light of Christ in Jesus name. Blessings!

  • I hope Father Corapi gets to see this email.
    Father you are a blessed inspiration,I’m so glad I found you on TV Saturday night at 10.

    You are a breath of fresh air in these troubled times and we need you to help bring back morality to our fractured world. I remember (I’m 86) a priest on radio that I admired, Father Coughlin who has since passed away. Please stay well and keep up the wonderful work.

    I haven’t prayed the Rosary in many years, but you have inspired me to get back to our religious basics. May God Bless you.

    I have recently had the pleasure and distinct honor of seeing Fr Corapi in person at the Prudential Center in Newark NJ. What a thrilling and blessed day it was! I will always remember it. It was my conversion day too. And I’m a Catholic, have been all of my life and I go to Mass and receive the sacraments. But there was something with being with Father that day. I came away feeling like I was born again; like I am called to something higher and better than I ever imagined. He is a wonderful man, a great Priest and I pray to God that he will be with us for many many more years to come. We need him. The United States needs him. The world needs him. I have 3 of his CD’S and DVD’s at home. I listen to them so much I’m afraid I will wear them out. God bless all! Thank you Mary Johnson

  • gary batley

    i have recently caught father corapi’s teachings on “ewtn”,what an inspirational priest!…i am an anglican catholic living in the UK,and i have not witnessed a priest with such passion for some considerable time,he has made me look at my self in a whole different light,i find myself reflecting on his words and it has enabled me to search my heart & soul ,and to talk to our lord much more than i ever did….god bless….gary batley

  • Gary Zakarian

    Without Love, Truth can be meaningless… If I, or you, don’t have LOVE, we are a ,”RESOUNDING GONG…”

    1COR 13:1 If I speak in human and angelic tongues but do not have love, I am a resounding gong or a clashing cymbal.

    Before I could UNDERSTAND, I knew Love…

    I know of a TONS of People who hope to get ,”CLOSER TO GOD with their Minds,” but everybody I know who is close to God, is very AMICABLE…

    MK 10:15 Amen, I say to you, whoever does not accept the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it.”

    LK 18:17 Amen, I say to you, whoever does not accept the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it.”

    CHILDREN ARE NOT BORN WITH THE ABILITY to Cognitively Comprehend God, but they comprehend Love from Birth. Thus the ,”WHOLE BIBLE,” is really about refining or fine tuning ,”HOW ONE LOVES…” As the Catechism calls it, reaching a Self Mastery or Control over one’s Heart’s desires.

  • Ken Wood

    Fr. Corapi is one of these very, very few “old-time” Catholic Priests left today. He is an anomaly; he’s too old-fashioned, way too strict in his dogma and teachings—THIS IS PRECISELY WHY WE NEED HIM AND MORE OF HIM IN THIS WORLD!!!!!

    God Bless Fr. Corapi!
