How to get these groups out of your Catholic parish

About half of Catholic Campaign for Human Development grant dollars went to left wing and anti-Catholic causes in 2011

Applicants for Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) awards must sign a Grant Agreement indicating that they will adhere to Catholic principles.  The CCHD website explains: “Applicant organizations must not participate in or promote activities that contradict the moral and social teachings of the Catholic Church and must in no way work against the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ priorities to defend human life and dignity, strengthen family life and the institution of marriage, and foster diversity. For example, applicant organizations that support or promote same-sex marriage, discrimination, capital punishment, abortion, euthanasia, or punitive measures towards immigrants are not eligible for CCHD funding.”

Despite this new, more rigorous selection procedure, CCHD grants continue to go to organizations – lots of organizations – that DO “participate in or promote activities that contradict the moral and social teachings of the Catholic Church” (see CCHD 2011, part 1-3).

Pro gay, pro abortion, economically clueless Barack Obama on the coming election: “This is a contest of values.”

Death of radical Obama-like ideologue reminds us: These guys will fight for their socialist heaven on earth, even to their last breath.

In Canada, the death of New Democratic Party leader Jack Layton yesterday has permeated the news. He was a strong, far-left, big government socialist.  He was the hero of the Canadian youth much like Obama once was.  His followers are as vocal and unrelenting as he was.  He never wasted an opportunity to extol social justice theories or attack conservatism.

What’s in those cookies? Girl Scouts of America co-opted by radical feminists.

We are two teenagers that were involved in Girl Scouts for eight years. We parted ways with the organization when we discovered that they have a pro-abortion mindset. We refuse to remain silent while this organization’s unscrupulous principles mislead over 2 million girls in the United States alone. We created SpeakNowGirlScouts.com in order to spread the truth to others who have no idea what GSUSA’s true intentions are. This website is our way to speak now and we hope it encourages you to do the same!

Political clarification: Jesus Christ isn’t a liberal. He’s God.


Some on the Professional Left have said suggested that Jesus was really a Socialist or even a libertine.

Obviously, anyone who has even taken a cursory look at the life and teachings of Jesus would know that this is not the case. However, let’s briefly go over the facts.

Liberals will point to Jesus exerting a certain sinner to sell all his riches and give it to the poor. Does this mean everyone is to give their riches away? Yes, it does if your possessions dictate your life. However, for most of us our possessions don’t dictate our lives. If Jesus truly believed that we should all give away all of our possessions than he would have told Zaccheus, who gave half of his possessions away (the way some do with the current tax structure,) to give away the other half. Jesus did not do this.

On the contrary, Jesus in the Parable of the Talents (Matthew 25:14-30) took what little talents the third man had and gave them to the man who had the most; all the while throwing the man who didn’t use his talents into the darkness, which many believe was a metaphor for hell.

Cardinal Pell Says Green Party Like Watermelons: Green Outside, Red Inside

By Kathleen Gilbert

SYDNEY, August 11, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A row has erupted after Cardinal George Pell of the Archdiocese of Sydney, Australia criticized the Green Party, which supports abortion, euthanasia, and same-sex “marriage,” as “sweet camouflaged poison” that represents an “anti-Christian” point of view. The archdiocese stood strongly by the comments after Green leader Robert Brown implied that Pell lied about the party’s position, and claimed to be more in touch with Catholic and Christian sentiment than the Cardinal.

When asked by young adults about how to vote in the upcoming elections, Pell recounted in a column Sunday that he did not endorse a specific party but encouraged his audience “to examine the policies of the Greens on their website and judge for themselves how thoroughly anti-Christian they are.”

The prelate also pointed out that Green leader Robert Brown helped author a book in which it was claimed that “humans are simply another smarter animal, so that humans and animals are on the same or similar levels depending on their level of consciousness.” The book was coauthored by Princeton University philosopher Peter Singer, a notorious supporter of infanticide and euthanasia.

“This Green ethic is designed to replace Judaeo-Christianity,” Pell warned.

Liberals and progressives at USCCB have exchanged the Catholic principle of subsidiarity for socialist stateism

For anyone who needs a reminder of what this principle (of subsidiarity) means, here’s what the Catechism of the Catholic Church says (CCC 1883):

Excessive intervention by the state can threaten personal freedom and initiative. The teaching of the Church has elaborated the principle of subsidiarity, according to which ‘a community of a higher order should not interfere in the internal life of a community of a lower order, depriving the latter of its functions, but rather should support it in case of need and help to co- ordinate its activity with the activities of the rest of society, always with a view to the common good’.

It’s important to note that subsidiarity is not an “anti-government” or “anti-state” principle. Indeed it affirms that there is a role for government because (1) there are some things that only governments can and should do and (2) sometimes the state does need to intervene when other communities are unable to cope temporarily with their particular responsibilities. Nor, it should be added, does subsidiarity always translate into the very same policy-positions, precisely because some elements of the common good are in a constant state of flux.

The rise of Barack Obama and his ilk provides the key to understanding the troubles in today’s Catholic Church


On December 8, 1965, the top leadership of the Catholic Church
set off on an AUDACIOUS quest for CHANGE, in the professed HOPE
of re-making the Catholic Church, in a new image
that was purely their own.

It appears now that their diabolical work
has almost completely succeeded.

Strangely enough, it was the rise of Barack Obama and his ilk
that provided the key to understanding
the Church’s present troubles, since from the events of this past year,
it has become increasingly clear that during the 1960’s and ’70’s,
the liberals, communists, homosexuals, and progressives had taken over
virtually every key leadership position in the Catholic Church,
where they then proceeded, in a systematic manner,
to AUDACIOUSLY uproot and discard,
for their own nefarious purposes,
some nineteen centuries of sacred Catholic Tradition.

“CHANGE” has been the Catholic Church’s
new and overriding tradition, ever since.

It began with the desacralization of the liturgy,
followed by the destruction of the religious orders and seminaries,
and the wholesale demolition of the churches,
beginning at the altar rails.

Next to go was the Catholic school system …
first the universities, then the primary and secondary schools …
and presently, we have the priesthood and the papacy
being regularly, systematically, and publicly scandalized.

Most of these “wounds” have been self-inflicted!

What the Spanish “Red Terror” revolutionaries had begun,
the radicals in the Catholic Church,
along with their willing, secular accomplices,
successfully completed by stealth,
a mere twenty years later.

One must inquire of today’s Catholics,
How’s that CHANGE working out for you?”

Looking back, in light of the rise of the Obama regime,
it’s clear that the changes made
in the post-Vatican II era church
were ill-considered, radical, and destructive …
directed and instigated by the SAME TYPES
of liberal, socialist, progressive ideologues who now intend
to do the same thing to these United States.

The Catholic Church as we once knew it, is no more …
and if the liberals are permitted to take full control
of the other churches, of the political parties,
the education establishment, the courts, the labor unions,
the media, the U.S. government bureaucracy,
and coming soon … the health care establishment …
there soon won’t be much remaining to fight over!

Ladies and gentlemen, this is a “wake up call”
for every faithful Catholic
and every true American patriot!

It’s high time we fixed this mess!

Your comments and suggestions are welcome.

Clueless Brits and EU put “The cart before the horse”

“As a Catholic, I am appalled by the attitude of the pope. Religious leaders should be trying to eradicate inequality, not perpetuate it,” said Hughes, who urged the pope to ensure “that existing EU legislation is properly applied in the Vatican.”

Editor’s note:

2ndTimothy 4:1-4
I charge thee, before God and Jesus Christ, who shall judge the living and the dead, by his coming and his kingdom: Preach the word: be instant in season, out of season: reprove, entreat, rebuke in all patience and doctrine.  For there shall be a time when they will not endure sound doctrine but, according to their own desires, they will heap to themselves teachers having itching ears:  And will indeed turn away their hearing from the truth, but will be turned unto fables.

Twenty minutes worth of video that just might change your life!

Michael Voris from RealCatholicTV.com in a 4-part (roughly 20 minutes) expose of the world-wide environmental (green) global warming/climate change/junk science movement and how it has been inspired and co-opted by socialists and communists, with the active assistance of many well known religions.

“Maybe it is not brutal. But in all other respects, what it (the Copenhagen conference) proposes is far too close to Communism for comfort.”

Today the gloves came off and the true purpose of the “global warming” scare became nakedly visible. Ugo Chavez, the Socialist president of Venezuela, blamed “global warming” on capitalism – and received a standing ovation from very nearly all of the delegates, lamentably including those from those of the capitalist nations of the West that are on the far Left – and that means too many of them.

Previously Robert Mugabe, dictator of Rhodesia, who had refused to leave office when he had been soundly defeated in a recent election, had also won plaudits at the conference for saying that the West ought to pay him plenty of money in reparation of our supposed “climate debt”.

Inside the conference center, “world leader” after “world leader” got up and postured about the need to Save The Planet, the imperative to do a deal, the necessity to save the small island nations from drowning, etc., etc., etc.

Outside, in the real world, it was snowing, and a foretaste of the Brave New World being cooked up by “world leaders” in their fantasy-land was already evident. Some 20,000 observers from non-governmental organizations – nearly all of them true-believing Green groups funded by taxpayers – had been accredited to the conference.

However, without warning the UN had capriciously decided that all but 300 of them were to be excluded from the conference today, and all but 90 would be excluded on the final day.

Featured Website: The American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property (TFP)

The American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property (TFP) was born of a group of Catholic Americans concerned about the multiple crises shaking every aspect of American life. Founded in 1973, the American TFP was formed to resist, in the realm of ideas, the liberal, socialist and communist trends of the times and proudly affirm the positive values of tradition, family and property.

Central to the TFP mission is the idea that the various crises threatening American society and the Church cannot be seen as separate and disjointed. Rather they originate from a single cause.

The TFP handbook Revolution and Counterrevolution by Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira masterfully traces the historical and philosophical roots of this single cause: a phenomenon called the Revolution.

The TFP was born from the idea of a Counterrevolution, a reaction that would embrace every field of of human activity, but especially art, ideas and culture. TFP books, publications and newspaper advertisements help bring these views to the public. Moreover, the TFP is not afraid to take them to the streets with colorful sidewalk campaigns in major cities.

The first TFP was founded in Brazil in 1960 by Prof. Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira. The American TFP is one of many autonomous TFPs that now exist around the world dedicated to the same ideals and at the service of Christian Civilization (See links).

Obama’s Creed

obama

“… we do not consider ourselves a Christian nation or a Jewish nation or a Muslim nation. We consider ourselves a nation of citizens who are bound by ideals and a set of values.”

You can check the quote for accuracy on the Internet. It’s verifiable. Well, as reader Joan Solms (and conservative activist) says: who are “we”? And what “ideals and a set of values”? What are they?

Here is the closest affirmation I can find of what this 3rd World-indoctrinated mystery man of murky genealogical background really “believes” if in fact belief is the right word. He is really not very smart. He poses often with his forefinger dug into his cheek with a faraway look in his eyes from which we are to deduce he’s an intellectual. He’s decidedly not (take it from me who was the first to interview him on radio after he became a state senator).

Some say he’s a Deist like Thomas Jefferson but the above statement contradicts that. Jefferson who first postulated (in a private letter) the concept of “wall of separation” between church and state first suggested that members of Congress go to church in the Capitol itself. That’s not Obama. His statement above is humanist and intrinsically atheist. His 20-year membership in Jeremiah Wright’s Trinity United Church of Christ was no test. How can one sit there for 20 years hearing Wright rave against whitey and believe that’s Christianity? Obama did it because he was a young man on the make and he decided the folks there could be put to good use as volunteers for him. Period. If he ever believed anything Wright said he should not have tossed him aside when the heat came on… because Wright was a detriment.

No, essentially Obama is an atheist clothed in humanist philosophy. His declaration above certifies it.

Why is the President punishing rich people for getting a great education and working hard?

obamamessiah

Q: Why is the President punishing rich people for getting a great education and working hard?

A: He’s just following his own Marxist/Leninist/Socialist principles.

The man’s very own definition of sin is doing something that goes against HIS principles.

You wouldn’t want “the messiah” to commit a sin, would you?
