If its left foot is still in the birth canal, it’s supposedly not a human person

In Canada, anybody can kill any child for any reason, from conception until the last part comes out (excluding the umbilical cord and the placenta). Don’t take my word for it, go talk to any lawyer who knows Canada’s Criminal Code.

Infestations by the devil

satanpride

Fallen angels, also known as devils and evil spirits, try to hinder all of us in our pursuit of holiness. Their ordinary ploy is by means of temptations, which God allows so that we can make good use of our freedom in resisting them and thus growing to fuller maturity in Christ.

In addition to these ordinary ploys, demons resort to other extraordinary acts, on rare occasions, with the same intention of thwarting the plan of God and undercutting our filial trust in Him. These harassments can be of three kinds: infestations, obsessions and possessions.

With infestations, the devil makes use of noises, outcries, rattling, apparitions and other extraordinary outbursts of some sensible nature aimed at terrifying people, intending to undercut their confidence in God.

It was a tough, hard fought competition, but after several phases and many thousands of votes, some of them from as far away as Belgium, Germany and India, Sarah Morton came out on top, singing “Don’t Stop Believing”.

Sarah has been performing on stage since the age of 4. Although she has not had professional voice lessons, she has been involved with choirs since the third grade.  

Sarah’s short term goals are to attend college and graduate with a degree in elementary education while also participating in theatrical productions. Her long-term goal is to teach at the grammar school she attended.

Congratulations to Sarah, mom Laura and dad Randy, and to the entire Morton family!

Sordid Life of Harvey Milk Exposed by the Facts

LEARN THE FACTS THAT THE MEDIA WANTS TO HIDE

The dishonorable deeds of Harvey Milk
Harvey Milk was a liar

Next week, the Democrat-controlled California Assembly is expected to pass “Harvey Milk Gay Day.”

SB 572 would pressure every California government school to teach children to “remember,” “recognize” and “familiarize” themselves with the homosexual-bisexual-transsexual agenda of the late Harvey Milk. SB 572 would indoctrinate kids as young as five years old. There is no parental consent in the bill.

Autism and Catholic Sacraments

A reader wrote me this morning asking about how her daughter with autism could possibly make communion or be confirmed in the Catholic faith.  I’ve done quite a bit of research on this subject for a book I’m writing.

The good news is that there are quite a few resources available to you and your parish to help your child prepare for communion and confirmation.  The bad news is that those resources are not well-disseminated, so it may be up to you, the parent, to find and share them.

With Media, It All Depends.

edwardsconvention5

John Edwards who was Democratic vice presidential nominee in 2004 and a front-runner for the party’s presidential nomination in 2008 will shortly confess that…in contradiction to what he has said previously…he is indeed the father of the baby born to his mistress.

The story of his adultery was widely ignored by the mainstream media at the time. In fact CBS’s Bob Schieffer scoffed when the story was floated that there are always stories floating around about politicians’ behavior and that he would ignore it.

The National Enquirer…of all publications…finally shamed the media to cover it since there was no way for the media to flee. Edwards withdrew from the race.

By any other professional standard, a person so outwardly biased as Schieffer as to allow his judgment to become converted to Enabler, would be drummed out of his work. Schieffer who is guilty of great journalistic malpractice continues. The reason: he is a liberal and Edwards is a liberal-hence the story is not of that much significant interest to the liberal media.

Edwards went on to spew a flurry of lies. He said he conducted the affair when his wife’s cancer was in remission. We know now that the affair began when Elizabeth was not in remission…continued through remission and in fact through the period when she was pronounced in danger. Thus: he’s a chronic liar. We know that he denied paternity alleging that it could not be since he did not have sexual relations with his mistress at a time that would make possible her pregnancy. We know that he did the disgraceful act of importuning a staffer to take a hit for being the father. These two actions were out-and-out lies. And still the media determine that the story is yesterday’s news: based on the fact that the media agrees wholeheartedly with Edwards on the issues.

In contrast, Sarah Palin has had a distinctively honorable record and character in life.

She was notified that she was carrying a Down Syndrome child and went through with the birth rather than get an abortion. But she has been Target One on the media and David Letterman’s hit list ever since.

The logical reason: she is a conservative Republican and the media are liberal Democrat. No other way to explain it.

That and as the psychiatrist-Pulitzer Prize-winner Charles Krauthammer says: the fact that she went through with the birth makes liberal feminist women angry out of inner guilt…since they would have short-circuited the baby’s birth and are inwardly guilty about it…so in rage this significant portion of the liberal Democratic constituency wishes to punish Palin for this act and the liberal media follow obediently.

Catholic Belmont Abbey College Would Close Before Giving in to Obama Admin

 belmontabbey

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — The president of Belmont Abbey College, a Catholic school, says he will close the college before it gives in to an Obama administration ruling forcing it to provide contraception coverage in its insurance plans for employees. The EEOC ruled the school must provide the coverage, even though it violates Catholic teachings.

As LifeNews.com first reported last week, Belmont Abbey College removed coverage for abortion, contraception and voluntary sterilization in 2007 after learning that its plan had accidentally included them.

Responding to the decision, eight faculty members filed complaints with the EEOC and the North Carolina Department of Insurance.

The EEOC determined that Belmont Abbey discriminated against women by denying coverage of contraception.

Now, BAC president William K. Thierfelder tells The Washington Times he would rather see the school shut down than violate its moral precepts.

“I hope it would never get this far but if it came down to it we would close the college before we ever provided that,” he said.

List of the Ten Best American Catholic Movies (Plus Fifty More)

bells_mary

There are Catholic films being made today – notably by the indefatigable Leonardo Defilippis – but mostly straight-to-video hagiography.

In the Forties, however, Catholic movies hit the big screen and the Big Time and marked a turning point in American culture.

Catholics were no longer simply marginalized immigrants; they became mainstream American icons.

No two films prove the point more surely than Leo McCarey’s Going My Way (1944) and its sequel The Bells of St. Mary’s (1945), which received ten and eight Academy Award nominations respectively, made Bing Crosby (as Father O’Malley) the nation’s top box-office star, and gave the luminous Ingrid Bergman (in Bells) her third consecutive Best Actress nomination.

Although the sequel is probably more watched today, Going My Way was more honored at the time: McCarey and Crosby won Oscars and GMW was the top-grossing picture of the year. Bells topped the box office too, but GMW is by far the more poignant film – bittersweet really – in its depiction of the joys and sorrows of the priesthood. If the movie’s final scene doesn’t move you, better check for a heartbeat.

Did President Obama Intentionally Mislead the Holy Father?

benedict3

In the late afternoon of July 10, President Obama met privately with Pope Benedict XVI for just over 30 minutes. According to official Vatican spokesman Rev. Federico Lombardi, S.J., “The president explicitly expressed his commitment to reducing the numbers of abortions and to listen to the church’s concern on moral issues.”

On July 13 in a Senate committee hearing, Sen. Barbara Mikulski was forced to admit under persistent questioning by Sen. Orrin Hatch that the new health-care bill includes abortion coverage. Planned Parenthood’s Guttmacher Institute estimates government funding of abortion increases abortion by 20 to 35 percent.

There were 1,206,200 abortions in 2006, according to National Right Life (the last annual results available). The math is easy: If the heath-care package currently being pushed by Obama is passed, the result will be 240,000 to 420,000 more abortions in the first year alone.

Grand theft auto …

police20car20with20lights

The light turned yellow, just in front of him. He did the right thing, stopping at the crosswalk, even though he could have beaten the red light by accelerating through the intersection.
 
The tailgating woman was furious and honked her horn, screaming in frustration, as she missed her chance to get through the intersection, dropping her cell phone and makeup.
 
As she was still in mid-rant, she heard a tap on her window and looked up into the face of a very serious police officer. The officer ordered her to exit her car with her hands up..
 
He took her to the police station where she was searched, fingerprinted, photographed, and placed in a holding cell.
 
After a couple of hours, a policeman approached the cell and opened the door. She was escorted back to the booking desk where the arresting officer was waiting with her personal effects.
 
He said, ”I’m very sorry for this mistake. You see, I pulled up behind your car while you were blowing your horn, flipping off the guy in front of you and cussing a blue streak at him. I noticed the ‘What Would Jesus Do’ bumper sticker, the ‘Choose Life’ license plate holder, the ‘Follow Me to Sunday-School’ bumper sticker, and the chrome-plated Christian fish emblem on the trunk, so naturally….I assumed you had stolen the car.”

Trek across the country reveals a pro-life America

crosswalk

Washington D.C., Aug 15, 2009 / 07:01 am (CNA).- After weeks of witness on the road, in church youth groups, and in front of abortion clinics, forty young people will end their three simultaneous cross-country pro-life walks across America in Washington, D.C on Saturday. The walk organizer said the endeavor helped women to reject abortion and revealed significant pro-life support. Three groups of young people with the group Crossroads began their respective walks in Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles on May 23. They collectively logged 10,000 miles across 36 U.S. states in 12 weeks.

Each walker averaged over 1,000 miles and spoke to parishes and youth groups. They also engaged in “peaceful, prayerful” protests and sidewalk counseling at abortion clinics.

The effort has taken place annually since 1995. This year’s walk will end with a 1 p.m. rally at the U.S. Capitol.

What the Founding Fathers knew about life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness

foundingfathers

From the Declaration of Independence:

“When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

The right to life and liberty are universal human rights granted by God … not man … and certainly not by ANY earthly government.

The right to the pursuit of happiness is also God bestowed … not for the purpose of fostering  immoral and lascivious conduct … but so that … over the course of his life … with the help of the Church … man might come to know, love, and serve  God … so that he might one day finally be admitted to Heaven … to dwell forever with God … finally achieving the end for which the first two rights were divinely granted. 

The “happiness” we are to pursue is fellowship with God in Heaven. Nothing less.

Some American History

Ignoring the U.S. abortion debacle led to genocidal health care bill

abortionpilebw

For the past 40 years or so, most Americans have generally preferred to ignore the horror of abortion that has been taking place all around the country, probably figuring that such things only affect other people, and would never impact their own lives.

Welcome to the 21st century … where we are about to discover (the HARD WAY) that a government (and a President) that advocates the wanton destruction of  the lives of millions of  innocent babies doesn’t much care about WHO they kill… since the whole idea behind their policies is to save money and rid society of “undesirables” who are now “loosely” defined as the poor, the aged and the infirm … but subject to “reclassification” at any time!

The matter of Human Rights has NOTHING to do with it!

Wake up, America!  

“Freedom of Choice” no where to be found in Obamacide health care bill

Where are all the “pro-choicers”?

Why are none of them  protesting against a proposed health care plan that will serve to eliminate freedom of choice in routine health care decisions and turn over all critical decisions to politically appointed government bureaucrats (except for abortion, which has already been pre-authorized and earmarked to be payed for by the government)?

The Obamacide health care bill is merely a huge power grab by he Obama administration that will serve to further consolidate their power.

It’s time for a nationwide general strike against the Obamacide bill!

Huge State Medicaid deficits “Dirty Little Secret” driving Obamacide health bill

fliescall

The “dirty little secret” nobody is mentioning is that a federal, universal health care bill would relieve the states of their obligation to provide (and pay for) medical care for their citizens.

And once a federal bill becomes law, the feds would be able to “cover” health care costs merely by printing more “funny money” … and printing “funny money” is something that individual states simply cannot do.

Of course, medical costs make up a huge portion of the current deficits that most states (like California, Illinois, New York, Michigan, Massachusetts, etc. are currently running.

Why hasn’t anyone in the Obama administration (or Congress) said anything? What are they hiding? What more do they have in store for us, if we let them get away with this?

Cut through the nonsense and read the bill for yourself.

The first line pretty much says it all … just look at the assortment of leftist, socialist, marxists that sponsored it!
