Life Teen Catholic Youth Ministry?

Life Teen Catholic Youth Ministry? Richard Salbato 11-26-2007 Two years ago I returned from Fatima and Panama to be close to my children and grandchildren. My daughter was teaching Bible Study and Confirmation Classes at Lake Arrowhead Catholic Church and three of my grandchildren were attending the Confirmation Classes. As part of the Confirmation Classes the students were required to attend the Sunday 6:30 PM Sunday Life Teen Youth Mass and from there to the Confirmation Class. I attended this Youth Mass one time and found it very disturbing to say the least, because of the music and the socialization during the Mass. It seemed very charismatic to me, so I asked my daughter about it. She said that this was part of an international group called, Life Teen, and that the Confirmation students were required to belong to Life Teen in order to be confirmed. Not long after that my three grandchildren went on a mandatory Life Teen two day retreat about 100 miles away. They all ca

"Terri Schiavo Was Brain Dead" and Other Media Lies

Terri Schiavo Was Not Brain Dead Schindler Family Asks George Stephanopoulos and Mainstream Media to Correct Inaccurate Reporting Regarding Terri's True Medical Condition TAMPA, Fla., Nov. 19 /Christian Newswire/ -- Yesterday on This Week, George Stephanopoulos, in an interview with Senator Fred Thompson, commented that Terri Schiavo's autopsy proved she was "brain dead." The New York Times also reported on this interview, repeating that the autopsy proved Terri was "brain dead." This is patently false and Terri's family is requesting that the media immediately stop using this offensive and inaccurate expression to describe her condition. Terri's brother, Bobby Schindler, says, "Brain death is an authentic diagnosis, not some catch phrase that should be loosely used based upon a 'summary of widespread response' or opinions that have been written about my sister. We are requesting that the media take a few minutes to research the fac

Spanish king tells Chavez to "shut up"

Spanish king tells Chavez to "shut up" By EDUARDO GALLARDO, Associated Press Writer 30 minutes ago SANTIAGO, Chile - The king of Spain told Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez to "shut up" Saturday during a heated exchange that soured the end of a summit of leaders from Latin America, Spain and Portugal. Chavez, who called President Bush the "devil" on the floor of the United Nations last year, triggered the exchange by repeatedly referring to former Spanish Prime Minister Jose Maria Aznar as a "fascist." Aznar, a conservative who was an ally of Bush as prime minister, "is a fascist," Chavez said in a speech at the Ibero-American summit in Santiago, Chile. "Fascists are not human. A snake is more human." Spain's current socialist prime minister, Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, responded during his own allotted time by urging Chavez to be more diplomatic in his words and respect other leaders despite political difference

Twin boy refuses to die by abortion!!!

From: "Phil Magnan" phil@bfamilyadvocates.com Organization: Biblical Family Advocates Twin boy refuses to die by abortion!!! By LUCY LAING Nov. 3, 2007 They say twins share a strong bond - but the one between Gabriel and Ieuan Jones was unbreakable. When doctors found that Gabriel was weaker than his brother, with an enlarged heart,and believed he was going to die in the womb, his mother Rebecca Jones had to make a heartbreaking decision. Doctors told her his death could cause his twin brother to die too before they were born, and that it would be better to end Gabriel's suffering sooner rather than later. Thriving: Gabriel, right, with his twin brother Ieuan, is now a healthy 12lb 6oz at seven months Mrs Jones decided to let doctors operate to terminate Gabriel's life. Firstly they tried to sever his umbilical cord to cut off his blood supply, but the cord was too strong. They then cut Mrs Jones's placenta in half so that when Gabriel died, it woul
