The Democratic Party now stands against what Catholics should believe.

Let’s make a list: abortion on demand, the contraceptive mandate, continued urban segregation, same-sex marriage, and unending illegal immigration. The list goes on.

Appealing to “the base”: Los Angeles Archbishop celebrates along side a host of pro abortion, pro homosexual politicians.

Archbishop Gomez could have helped pass AB 60 and celebrated its passage without giving honor and credibility and obvious “vote-for-these-good pro-abortion and pro-homosexual Democrats” coverage on the front cover of his own weekly newspaper.

See what all the fuss is about

Editor’s note: I’m sure the archbishop engaged in very extensive dialog before appearing on the dais with all those glad-handed, morally bankrupt  political hacks. Perhaps Pope Francis will warn the Archbishop about the type of company he keeps.  But I doubt it!

I believe the old saying goes, “You lie down with dogs – you wake up with fleas.”  Or some variation thereof …

“Forgive our trespasses [sins] as we forgive those who trespass [sin] against us.”

After the Amish School mass killings the victim’s families went to the killers home that very evening to forgive the killer’s family. [ The Amish, like all true Christians, believe the Lord’s words: “Forgive our trespasses [sins] as we forgive those who trespass [sin] against us.”

We all must forgive in order for God to forgive us. The Amish felt they had to forgive before the sun went down on their anger, the day of the killings.

The race baiters and their media minions are fanning the flames of race warfare. Zimmerman, a Hispanic is running for his life and black gang members are being encouraged to feel that they need to get even with any Hispanics they meet.

The revenge acts of violence, all over the country should be laid at the feet of these politicians and their co-conspirators in the media, who promote racial hatred and are responsible for every revenge act stemming from this case.

To be fair, we must apply gun control principles to elected politicians and government appointees, without exception.

by Doug Lawrence

Let’s get real. The problem is not guns. The problem is widespread corruption and immorality, which pervades our present day society and especially, our government.

With that in mind, it’s time to require instant background checks on every politician, elected or appointed, without exception, covering every local, state and federal jurisdiction … especially the Supreme Court, the Congress, and the President/Vice President.

Elected or not, if the politician fails to pass an instant background check, he/she is out of there! All accrued pensions and benefits would be instantly forfeit, as well.

Constitutional issues could certainly be quickly resolved by the same people who are presently attempting to subvert and otherwise “gut” our country’s founding documents. But of course, that would be grounds for instant dismissal, under the PIBC (Politician Instant Background Check) provisions.

Those guys better watch out!

Excommunication is the perfect solution for the Catholic confusion being promoted and shamelessly exploited by the Obama regime.

by Doug Lawrence

“Sorry … he/she cannot possibly speak for the Catholic Church, because he/she has been officially excommunicated.”

Excommunicate Kathleen Sebelius, Sister Carol Keehan, Nancy Pelosi, Andrew Cuomo, John Kerry, Joe Biden, Dick Durbin, Timothy Leahy, and every other high profile Catholic leader and/or politician who publicly stands against the Catholic Church on grave moral issues of the day.

That way, the Obama regime (and everyone else) will know for certain, precisely who they must deal with, and who actually has the authority to officially speak and act on behalf of the Catholic Church … since the others, now publicly excommunicated, will no longer be “in communion” with the Catholic Church … and will have absolutely no say in church matters … unless and until … they publicly repent.

Bishops … this ain’t rocket science!

Catholic Entities Undermine U.S. Bishops’ Authority

Jimmy Akin on the practical effects of excommunication

Bishop Aquila: When bishops and priests are hesitant in exercising their authority, the “father of lies” takes hold of the hearts and minds of the faithful.

“One must honestly ask, how many times and years may a Catholic politician vote for the so called ‘right to abortion’ … and still be able to receive Holy Communion?” the bishop said.

The continual reception of Communion by those who “so visibly contradict and promote a grave evil” creates “grave scandal” and undermines the teaching and governing authority of the Church, he warned. The faithful can interpret these actions as indifference to the teaching of Christ and the Church on the part of those who have “the responsibility to govern.”

“If we honestly pray with the Gospel we can see that hesitancy and non-accountability is not the way of Jesus Christ, but rather it is a failure in the exercise of governance,” Bishop Aquila told a March 18 symposium in Philadelphia about the spirituality and identity of diocesan priests.

Advice to politicians from former U.S. Ambassador to the Vatican

It comes down to one word: R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

By Kyle-Anne Shiver

…It comes down to one word: R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

Respect for God, our Creator. That’s the fountain of American wisdom from which all else flows.

From respect for God, our Creator, comes respect for each individual that God has made. The foundational principle of American government is that human souls come in only one color, in one type, and at one value. In God’s sight, we are all created equal. And since our very founding, good Americans of all stripes have worked to further this principle.

As if to highlight this fundamental loss of respect for our Creator as the source of citizens’ unalienable rights, our big-government elitist in chief feels perfectly free to simply remove God from the American equal-rights paradigm, as he did when speaking to the Hispanic Caucus last month.

From respect for each individual flows the idea that liberty is a fundamental — unalienable by government — human right. Just as God has given free will to each person, in perfectly equitable manner, respecting man’s ability to choose his own path, so a government made in the image of God’s plan must permit the freedom to succeed or to fail, to prosper or to flounder, and to account for his own life when he faces God at the end of his earthly journey.

If the majority of American citizens want to change our Constitution, if they wish to banish the word “Creator” from our public display of the Declaration of Independence, they have legal ways in which to do this. The states can call a Constitutional Convention to take such steps democratically. Or our elected representatives can propose legal amendments to our Constitution which transform America into a socialist democracy. This is respect for the people’s will.

But Democrats have decided to transform America from the top-down position of tyrants, boldly challenging the people to resist. Our founders were brilliant men who put into our Constitution the legal means to transform this country by purely democratic means. But Barack Obama is not legally empowered to make America into what he thinks it ought to be.

What we have in America today isn’t just a feckless bunch of big spenders running our economy off a cliff. We have a cadre of power-mad folks who have no respect for the rule of law or the Constitution they are sworn to protect.

Respect for the will of the people is the very soul of democracy. Without it, liberty is nothing but a sham.

For Chicagoans, it’s time to start poundin’ and hollerin’ and screamin’

Rahm, the Shark

… the idea was: shark comes to the nearest man, that man he starts poundin’ and hollerin’ and screamin’ and sometimes the shark go away… but sometimes he wouldn’t go away. Sometimes that shark he looks right into ya. Right into your eyes. And, you know, the thing about a shark… he’s got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll’s eyes. When he comes at ya, doesn’t seem to be living… until he bites ya, and those black eyes roll over white and then… ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched screamin’. The ocean turns red, and despite all the poundin’ and the hollerin’, they all come in and they… rip you to pieces. – Quint, Jaws, 1975

Irish Catholic politicians who abandon the truth for political advantage.

Sadly, Kathleen Rice is pro-abortion.

When asked by Paul Likoudis, news editor of The Wanderer, for comment on the candidate’s e-statement, Charles Rice responded as follows:

Randall Terry says Archbishop Wuerl covers for pro-abortion Catholic politicians

In open opposition to the Vatican directive, Archbishop Wuerl and dozens of other U.S. bishops – including prominent prelates such as Cardinal Sean O’Malley of Boston and Cardinal Francis George of Chicago – say that the local bishop can decide whether or not to withhold Communion from those responsible for abortion. Some say the decision depends on “pastoral style;” others claim they are trying not to “politicize Communion.” After the excuses are proffered, they proceed to give the blood of Christ to those whose hands are covered with the blood of babies.

Our question to Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone and other church leaders in Rome was simple: “Who is right? Cardinal Ratzinger, or Archbishop Wuerl? They cannot both be right.”

Archbishop Wuerl has tried to write himself a “pass,” stating that these errant Catholic politicians are the problem of the bishops of their home dioceses and are merely guests in his archdiocese. However, His Excellency is the chief shepherd of the territory assigned to him and the chief presider of the Eucharist. He is therefore canonically responsible for what happens in his diocese regarding those who approach to receive the Eucharist.

We told our Vatican hosts that the fruit of Archbishop Wuerl’s “collegial treachery” is that the teaching of the church is marginalized, the murder of babies is minimized and Holy Communion is trivialized. The message sent is that killing babies isn’t so bad; Holy Communion isn’t so sacred.

How is it that Catholic politicians continue to violate Catholic principles with impunity?

More than forty years after the 2nd Vatican Council, the Catholic Church remains mired in confusion and still lacks confidence in its own re-oriented and re-purposed world view.

No wonder, since many traditional Catholic teachings and practices have been so “watered down” as to be almost unidentifiable,while others have been quietly de-emphasized or otherwise put away in the false hope that the Catholic Church might somehow become more acceptable to devotees of the world, the flesh and the devil.

This leaves the bishops in the difficult position of teaching equivocally about that which until fairly recently, has always been clearly defined, unequivocal, divine truth.

Equivocating about the truth is just another form of  lying … and lying is something that any politician (and most sensible Catholics) can easily identify, appreciate and understand.

So … and politicians obviously have absolutely no compunction about this … it’s merely the Catholic politician’s version of the lie vs. the bishop’s.

One politician to another!

President Obama isn’t even Catholic, yet he instinctively understands this, since for Obama and his ilk, there is no such thing as absolute truth.

Enough of the homosexual nonsense, already!

Promoters of homosexual rights now claim that the Catholic priest/child-abuse scandal has totally discredited both the Catholic priesthood and the Church, but at the same time, they (falsely) deny that the majority of the priests involved in the scandal were themselves, homosexual.

All this is just more proof that homosexuality is and has always been extremely corrosive to the fabric of society. ANY society!

When the late ‘60’s, post-Vatican II Catholic Church relaxed the standards for seminarians (and permitted homosexuals to run those seminaries) the seeds of destruction were sown.

The result was a virtual collapse of traditional Catholic orthodoxy, chaos in catechesis, widespread birth control, abortion, divorce and other forms of sexual immorality.

If you liked watching all the psychological and financial pain that was part and parcel of the priest/child-abuse scandal, just wait and see what happens to the U.S. military, if the homosexuals get their way!

Anyone who understands the homosexual mindset knows that everything must always be all about them and about what they so desperately want, no matter the consequences … and if prompt and total public approval of their perverted lifestyle choices is not immediately forthcoming, there’s no end to the tantrums.

Politicians, artists, Hollywood types, writers and teachers are particularly afflicted with the homosexual disorder, and even if “straight”, they remain extraordinarily amenable, sensitive and vulnerable to homosexual demands, so it’s up to the rest of us to stand up for the truth.

If history proves one thing, it’s that no society whose fabric has been torn apart by homosexual lies, perversions and outright fabrications, can properly function for very long.

Any expansion of homosexual rights is a slippery slope that can only lead to Hell. And you won’t necessarily have to die to go there, since if the homosexuals have their way, we will soon have our very own version of Hell, right here on earth.

That’s the type of misery active homosexuals choose to deal with every single day, and that’s precisely what they want for you and your children.

In their eyes, it’s only fair!

For a comprehensive report on this matter, including all the authentic facts and figures, as opposed to the fanciful exaggerations and lies that have been spread so often and for so long by homosexuals and their allies in the homosexual-friendly media, go here.

“Red Mass” in Washington DC on 10/4 will draw anti-abortion protests

Red Mass and Abortion: On October 4, 2009, DC area Pro-life advocates will be present outside St. Matthew’s Cathedral Before the annual “Red Mass” to plead with Judges and Politicians to protect unborn babies from murder. Randall Terry states: “This Red Mass is a beautiful prayer for Justice to reign with judges and statesmen; but in practice it is a mockery, because many of those attending help kill innocent babies by the millions.”
Dateline City: Washington DC
Source: Randall Terry, Director Operation Rescue Insurrecta Nex
Contact: Catherine Veritas, 703-538-2325
Time and Location: 9:00 A.M., Sunday October 4, 1725 Rhode Island Ave NW, Washington DC.

DC Area Pro-life leaders Randall Terry, Missy Smith, and Dick Retta will be joined by a large group of pro-life advocates outside of St. Matthew’s Cathedral to call attention to the 50,000,000 babies who have been murdered by “surgical abortion” in America since 1973.

Moreover, these Catholics will focus on Canon 915, which specifically forbids Catholics who are in public scandal – such as Catholic politicians who support child-killing by abortion – from receiving the Holy Eucharist.

Randall Terry states: “This Red Mass is a beautiful call to pray for Justice amongst judges and statesmen; but in many ways it is a mockery, because many of those attending help kill innocent babies by the millions. While some attend with great devotion, others scoff at Christ by their actions, and commit sacrilege by receiving the Body and Blood of Christ while they hold a knife to the throat of the unborn.

“Perhaps Jesus weeps with grief for the babies, His Church, and for the souls of those men and women who dare to approach His Altar while continuing to kill His precious children.”

Note: Pro-life advocates DO NOT have plans or intentions of disturbing the mass. They will speak to attendees as they enter and exit the mass, hold up signs of aborted babies, and signs specific to those attending the Mass.

First the “Catholic” reformers couldn’t recognize the Truth.

Then the “Catholic” theologians couldn’t recognize the Lie.

Now the “Catholic” Politicians can’t recognize the Difference.

– From CatechismClass.com

Isn’t it funny?

Q: Isn’t it funny how people (particularly Protestant people and politicians) like to criticize Catholics and the Catholic Church?

A: It’s even funnier how they attempt to hijack a totally Catholic holy book … the Bible … in order to justify their own peculiar beliefs and practices … and then they blame it all on the Holy Spirit.
