Oops! Obama’s DNC Tribute to U.S. War Vets Featured Russian – Not U.S. Ships.

A United States Ship

On the last night of the Democratic National Convention, a retired Navy four-star took the stage to pay tribute to veterans. Behind him, on a giant screen, the image of four hulking warships reinforced his patriotic message.

But there was a big mistake in the stirring backdrop: those are Russian warships.

Social Justice Christians: Leftist seeking leftist solutions to known cultural problems, often at the expense of babes in the womb.

Again and again I see young social justice-focused evangelicals abandoning any effective voice for the unborn for the sake of an ephemeral, culturally-fashionable concept that as a practical matter means little more than advocating a utopian ideal through a grab-bag of banal, functionally socialist policies. Moreover, the embrace of social justice often drives them functionally into the arms of a political party and political movements that are dedicated to protecting and even subsidizing the “right” to kill children on a vast, industrial scale.

Social justice must be virtuous indeed to be worth such a high cost. So, what is it?

Bernardin would love it: New allegedly “catholic” voter’s guide full of cleverly crafted deceptions.

A group of Democratic-leaning Catholics on Wednesday (Feb. 29) released a 2012 voter guide that seeks to expand the concept of “pro-life issues” beyond abortion to also include war, euthanasia and poverty.

The nine-page guide from the group Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good — one of the first to be released for the 2012 elections — highlights economic issues as top concerns Catholics should weigh as they consider their vote.

Editor’s note: The easiest way to vote correctly in the next election is to vote against the baby killers. If somebody’s on the wrong side of the abortion issue, they’re likely to be wrong on everything else. Never trust a baby killer … and never trust anyone who tries to make the heinous sin of abortion equivalent to the high unemployment rate!

Former CUA student falls victim to the high priestess of liberalism

For the past three years, I’ve been struggling to remember why I am a Catholic. Growing up, I was raised Catholic by a mother who has taught me to love everyone for who they are, and by a father who, by working at the United Nations, has opened me up to people and cultures from all over the world.

My exposure to diversity instilled in me a strong urgency for justice, love, and respect for all. However, over the course of my college career, I’ve been exposed to an ugly and judgmental minority of the Catholic Church that has lead me to question what it is that I believe in as a Catholic.

This exposure forced me to detach myself from religion completely. I resented the requirement of theology courses because I felt trapped and pressured by conservative views that didn’t coincide with my Democratic morals. It opened me up to a side of the Church that was narrow-minded and judgmental toward anyone who disagreed.

Editor’s note: Is this a gay thing? A gay Democrat thing? A gay, Democrat, feminist thing? Or is it simply a narrow-minded and judgmental screed against the authentic teachings of the Catholic Church, in order to help justify a world view that is unable or unwilling to recognize the difference between absolute Catholic truth and the many popular misconceptions of our times?

Catholic dogma is not on the same level as the panoply of social justice and peace issues, where people of faith may agree and disagree, and choose to participate … or not … based on their personal likes and dislikes. Catholic dogma is pure divine truth, faithfully preserved and transmitted by the Catholic Church, so that people from every generation (including self-styled liberals) might be personally transformed by it.

Reject Catholic dogma and you reject Christ.  Reject the latest CCHD Alynskian outreach program … and you can still support any number of other good social justice causes … without putting your eternal soul in jeopardy. 

Liberals, like this misguided woman, can’t or won’t make this critical distinction, so they raise their liberalism above their Catholic faith, stripping Catholicism of its essential richness, and relegating it to the status of a mere public charity … or perhaps, a semi-exclusive social club.

This profound disrespect for the Catholic Church is nothing less than a twisted form of idolatry. 

Makes you wonder why someone like this would choose to attend a school named, “The Catholic University of America”.

Democrat chairman Schultz doesn’t care about killing women (or men) in the womb.

Wasserman Shultz called the personhood amendments being considered or petitioned for in Mississippi, Ohio, Texas, Kansas, and Florida “the most extreme assault on a woman’s right to choose.”

Personhood amendments define when a human being becomes a “person” under the law. An amendment proposed in Mississippi, for example, says that a person is “every human being from the moment of fertilization, cloning or the functional equivalent thereof.”

Wasserman Shultz said that the Mississippi amendment–which will go before voters on Nov. 8–will outlaw all abortions and some forms of birth control (presumably because they kill human embryos) and also IUDs, the morning-after pill, and in vitro fertilization procedures that create and discard human embyros.

Abortionist taking over key spot in Democrat party leadership

Rep. Allyson Schwartz of Pennsylvania is one of the fastest rising stars in the Democrat Party, taking on a recently announced leadership role at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

Schwartz, a four-term suburban Philadelphia congresswoman, is taking on the position left vacant by Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz who was just tapped to chair the Democratic National Committee.

One fact that has gone unmentioned in all the media reports trumpeting Schwartz’s ascendancy is that Allyson Schwartz, besides having a perfect pro-abortion record in Congress, co-founded and acted as Executive Director of an abortion clinic in Philadelphia for 13 years (1975-1988).

The late Geraldine Ferraro: An early “I’m personally opposed to abortion … but” Catholic politician.

The abortion issue, magnified because she was Roman Catholic and a woman, plagued her campaign. Though she opposed the procedure personally, she said, others had the right to choose for themselves. Abortion opponents hounded her at almost every stop with an intensity seldom experienced by male politicians.

Editor’s note: I’m betting that, right about now, Geraldine wishes she would have listened much more carefully to the objections of those abortion opponents. May God have mercy on her soul.

Democratic Rep. Bill Lipinski explains his “NO” vote on Obamacare

“It’s not just about being against something, it’s believing that every individual deserves dignity and respect, whoever they are, at whatever stage of life they’re in,” Lipinski said. “That is something I hear my Democratic colleagues say. And I say that it’s self-evident that the individual is there at conception.”

Lipinski has degrees in mechanical engineering, economic systems, and political science. He’s not a biologist.

“We know that at conception, the genetic code is there, for a unique individual. This is not something that is just a religious belief,” Lipinski said. “If you look at what we know about reproduction, you can see it.”

Nearly all my professors are Democrats. Isn’t that a problem?

By Dan Lawton / July 13, 2009

Eugene, Ore.

When I began examining the political affiliation of faculty at the University of Oregon, the lone conservative professor I spoke with cautioned that I would “make a lot of people unhappy.”

Though I mostly brushed off his warning – assuming that academia would be interested in such discourse – I was careful to frame my research for a column for the school newspaper diplomatically.

The University of Oregon (UO), where I study journalism, invested millions annually in a diversity program that explicitly included “political affiliation” as a component. Yet, out of the 111 registered Oregon voters in the departments of journalism, law, political science, economics, and sociology, there were only two registered Republicans.

A number of conservative students told me they felt Republican ideas were frequently caricatured and rarely presented fairly. Did the dearth of conservative professors on campus and apparent marginalization of ideas on the right belie the university’s commitment to providing a marketplace of ideas?

In my column, published in the campus newspaper The Oregon Daily Emerald June 1, I suggested that such a disparity hurt UO. I argued that the lifeblood of higher education was subjecting students to diverse viewpoints and the university needed to work on attracting more conservative professors.

I also suggested that students working on right-leaning ideas may have difficulty finding faculty mentors. I couldn’t imagine, for instance, that journalism that supported the Iraq war or gun rights would be met with much enthusiasm.

What I didn’t realize is that journalism that examined the dominance of liberal ideas on campus would be addressed with hostility.
