President Obama panders to homosexuals over Russian Olympics

“One of the things I am looking forward to is maybe some gay or lesbian athletes bringing home the gold, silver or bronze. If Russia doesn’t have gay or lesbian athletes, it will probably make their team weaker.”

Editor’s note: That comment is pretty weak, in itself, Mr. President! Have a nice vacation on Martha’s Vineyard – which, by the way –  is in the Atlantic Ocean – not the Gulf of Mexico.

The problem of “instant canonizations” at Catholic funerals

Laura’s funeral Mass was beautiful—that is, up until the homily. It was then that things took a turn for the weird. After speaking a few words about God’s love, the priest slowly stepped away from the lectern, spread his arms wide, and said, “We are gathered here to celebrate the life of Laura.”

As a former Evangelical Christian, I was used to hearing the “let’s celebrate the life of so-and-so” openings at funerals. It was what happened next that immediately snapped me to attention.
