Proclaiming God’s truth when nobody cares to hear (or heed) it

Honolulu’s Catholic Bishop Larry Silva has issued an “urgent” appeal against gay marriage in Hawaii, arguing bluntly that some forms of discrimination are acceptable — including discrimination against same-sex couples.

The prelate’s appeal came as Gov. Neil Abercrombie is being urged to call a special session of the Hawaii Legislature to legalize marriage equality.  Six states including Washington have legalized same-sex marriage in the past year, and a recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling has brought marriage equality back to California.

“The language of the proponents is meant to convince us that this is a civil rights issue and that anyone who does not agree is bigoted,” Silva wrote.  “Do not be led astray with such language, and do not allow yourself to be bullied by it.”

The Honolulu bishop is — literally — urging his flock to hit the beads.  Silva told Catholics they should pray the rosary daily against same-sex marriage, and “if possible” recite their prayers around the State Capitol block in Honolulu.

Editor’s note: Ever since the homosexual community managed to dodge the primary responsibility for the spread of the HIV virus – and induce the government to pay the tab for both the care and the restorative therapies – it was apparent (to me) that some type of malevolent, even demonic force was at work in the body politic.

The demeanor of many homosexuals and homosexualist groups – including the Democratic Party – seems to confirm this, so Bishop Silva’s approach is absolute correct and eminently practical.

We should all join in his Rosary campaign.

Maricopa County Sheriff’s investigation determines Obama birth certificate is a fake.

Mike Zullo, the posse’s chief investigator, said numeric codes on certain parts of the birth certificate indicate that those parts weren’t filled out, yet those sections asking for the race of Obama’s father and his field of work or study were completed.

Zullo said investigators previously didn’t know the meaning of codes but they were explained by a 95-year-old former state worker who signed the president’s birth certificate. Zullo said a writer who published a book about Obama’s birth certificate and was aiding investigators let them listen in on an interview he conducted of the former state worker.

The Obama campaign declined to comment on Arpaio’s allegations.

“If a noble Christian priest, preacher or sister should be inspired to go and sacrifice a life to console these poor wretches, that would be a royal soul to shine forever on the throne reared by human love.”

Father Damien – Heroic Leper Priest – Royal Soul – Saint

The mere mention of Molokai was enough to send shivers up the spine of nineteenth century Hawaiians. This island, located just southeast of Oahu, became the final destination and burial place of over 8,000 Hawaiians diagnosed with the terrible disease. The first settlement, where Father Damien spent most of his time, was established in the village of Kalawao located on the eastern side of a peninsula that protrudes off the northern coast of Molokai.

The first lepers to arrive found dreadful living conditions. There was very little food and shelter, inadequate medicine and absolutely no hope. Many lepers refused to leave the boats that docked on the tiny island of Okala, just offshore from Kalawao, and were thrown overboard. Those who could not swim drowned in the turbulent Pacific Ocean.

They were sent there to die and they knew it. Seeing themselves abandoned in such a callous way, they gave themselves up to all sorts of vices. Treated like animals, they quickly began to act like animals. Losing all human joys, they feverishly grasped at those of the beasts and subsequently gave themselves over to a sinful life.1
