World Day of Prayer for the Sanctification of Priests

World Day of Prayer for the Sanctification of Priests Dear Friends, Tomorrow, Friday the 30th of May, is the World Day of Prayer for the Sanctification of Priests. The Vatican has published a beautiful letter encouraging all the faithful to take this day, and every day, as a time for prayer for our shepherds. These men feed us the Bread of Life, endlessly hear our confessions, baptize and marry us, and stand vigil at our deathbeds, counsel us and teach us, and take all kinds of flak (visible and invisible) for our sakes. The vast majority of them stand firm in faithfulness to their calling for the sake of the Blood of the Lamb. They suffer much. They are “other Christs” for us. They are human, they have faults and weaknesses and sins, just like us. They are primary targets for the malice of the evil one. They are far more than heroes. They are saints in the making, just as we all should be. Let’s never forget that in the hierarchical creation willed by the Holy Trinity, these men

Was Obama Mentored by Communist Party Figure?

Was Obama Mentored by Communist Party Figure? WorldNetDaily http://www.worldnetdaily.com/index.php?pageId=65066 Friday, May 23, 2008 WorldNetDaily Exclusive Obama mentored by Communist Party figure Investigations show ties to radicals who shaped him, helped launch his political career May 22, 2008 By Jerome R. Corsi Barack Obama had extensive ties with extreme anti-American elements, including agents of the Moscow-controlled Communist Party USA, in Hawaii and Chicago, according to two new reports released yesterday in Washington, D.C., by two experienced internal security investigators. Investigative journalist Cliff Kincaid and Herbert Romerstein, a former investigator with the U.S. House Committee on Un-American Activities, presented evidence Obama was mentored by Frank Marshall Davis, an African-American poet and journalist who was also a CPUSA member while Obama attended high school in Hawaii. The authors, in a separate report, document Obama's ties to radicals in C

Lobbying as a Moral Vice... and Immoral Hypocrisy

TomRoeser.com :: Personal Asides: Lobbying as a Moral Vice... and Immoral Hypocrisy. Posted: 22 May 2008 06:04 AM CDT Lobbying as Moral Vice. I first started as a lobbyist... for Quaker Oats... in 1964 and continued until retirement in 1991. The beautiful thing about that job was the first day I started the CEO asked me to tell them what the company should be lobbying for or against. I drew up a list which, surprisingly, squared with my conservative values... and theirs. First, the company should lobby against high price supports in the farm bill which would cut the cost of the grain they bought but also coincided with consumer interest. Second, it should oppose creation of ever-more regulatory agencies. Third it should oppose an industry plan to allow creation of a eunuch so-called Consumer Protection Agency, the 38th such body designed to protect the consumers-but a CPA that would have very little power to protect consumers and would be toothless, so as to be a sop to pub

Scientist: Real Global Warming Reduces "the Number of Hurricanes"

Scientist: Real Global Warming Reduces "the Number of Hurricanes" Scientist Shifts View on Global Warming By SETH BORENSTEIN, AP Posted: 2008-05-18 15:55:50 Filed Under: Science News WASHINGTON (May 18) - Global warming isn't to blame for the recent jump in hurricanes in the Atlantic, concludes a study by a prominent federal scientist whose position has shifted on the subject. Not only that, warmer temperatures will actually reduce the number of hurricanes in the Atlantic and those making landfall, research meteorologist Tom Knutson reported in a study released Sunday. Photo Gallery Vincent Laforet, Pool / Getty Images Are There Benefits To Global Warming? 1 of 10 Ever since Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans in 2005, hurricanes have often been seen as a symbol of global warming's wrath. However, a new study shows that warmer temperatures may actually reduce the number of Atlantic hurricanes. Click through the photos to see other positive effects of global warm

California Supreme Court Foolishness Justifies Same Sex Marriages

California Supreme Court Foolishness Justifies Same Sex Marriages UNION CITY, California, May 19 /Christian Newswire/ -- "Today the California Supreme Court ruled in favor of same sex marriages and in so doing turned its back on both the will of the people and clearly biblical teaching," said Walter Hoye, President and Founder of the Issues4Life Foundation. Hoye says, "The only way Californians can reverse this outrageous decision is by passing the 'ProtectMarriage.com' initiative in November and put the definition of marriage in the California state constitution. This will ensure that no judge, politician or special interest group interferes with the will of the people." Hoye goes on to say, "Currently 40% (percent) of children are born out of wedlock so it is clearly in the public interest to encourage people who engage in reproductive acts to marry since only those acts create new life without the staggering and tragic social consequences outside

Supreme Court Upholds Law Against Child Porn

Supreme Court Upholds Law Against Child Porn WASHINGTON, May 19 /Christian Newswire/ -- "We have long held that obscene speech-sexually explicit material that violates fundamental notions of decency-is not protected by the First Amendment," begins the opinion handed down today by the Supreme Court in US v. Williams, a clear statement of law too often overlooked by our judiciary and law enforcement. In a 7-2 decision, the Court reversed the Eleventh Circuit opinion declaring the 2003 law unconstitutional and restored the much needed protections against the distribution of child pornography. Concerned Women for America (CWA) applauds the decision by the Supreme Court to uphold a law that will protect families and punish those who traffic in child pornography. Justice Scalia, who wrote the opinion of the Court, said, "Child pornography harms and debases the most defenseless of our citizens. Both the State and Federal Government have sought to suppress it for many year

National Rosary Crusade to Save America and the World

It is certain that America is at the most crucial moment of her history. At this time we would do well to keep in mind the power of the Rosary and the message of Fatima. The Rosary is not merely a devotion. It is weapon of conversion, protection and love. Never has this weapon been more needed than it is today. The Rosary has proven itself as a weapon of protection. Some of the battles in which victory was attributed to the Rosary are: The battle of Lepanto in 1571, which the Church commemorates on October 7th as the feast of the Holy Rosary; the battle of Vienna in 1683 and the battle of Belgrade in 1716. These battles were won against all odds by the power of the Rosary. In each instance Europe was saved from the forces of Mohammed. In the 20th century we have witnessed many examples of Rosary victories. After WWII, the Allies partitioned Austria into four zones. The Russians were in control of the most important section; Moscow, interested in maintaining its control in Austria, ga

"Jesus never Compromised Truth for Niceness"

Satan says: “Never Judge!” By Richard Salbato “Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own…" Matthew 7:1-3 This is the most quoted passage for people who believe we should all be nice and kind to all people’s opinions, beliefs, politics and life styles. Of course, Satan is a master of Scripture and used true Scripture to tempt Christ in the desert. This is because Satan likes to take things out of context to corrupt the meaning of it. When you take the entire bible in its simplicity, you will see what Christ really means in the passage above. In Matthew 7 we see how we are not to judge. We are never to condemn anyone to Hell. Not even the Church ever pronounces anyone in Hell. We are also never to use a double-standard, judging one person by one set of standards and anoth

"Find the Real. Seek with your Whole Hearts the True, the Beautiful, and the Good."

"Find the Real. Seek with your Whole Hearts the True, the Beautiful, and the Good." May, 2008 Dear friends, This month, I would like to share a few thoughts on gratitude. In a time of struggle—which is the situation for all those who seek to follow Jesus wholeheartedly—it is easy to get endlessly distracted and anxious about “survival.” For Christians this can translate into survival for the sake of doing good in the world. The motive is good, but the anxiety is not. Indeed it is a symptom of a flaw in the root of one’s relationship with God as Father. In any event, that is the case with me. The past month, I have been hearing in prayer a gentle but persistent word: “All good things are given from above.” And: “Patience.” Yes, we must work on, often with little promise of success in worldly terms. If we do so, many interior qualities are strengthened, such as patience, perseverance, longsuffering—and even wisdom. One can know this in the mind. But it is not so easy to

Is the California Supreme Court’s Gay Fascism Evil?

By Fred Martinez Before he died, Pope John Paul II said homosexual marriage and the gay agenda are part of "a new ideology of evil perhaps more insidious and hidden, which attempts to pit human rights against the family and against man." The majority of the California Supreme Court stands for the "new ideology of evil,” which will lead America in stages to become a new Sodom and Gomorrah. As Justice Scalia said against Lawrence v. Texas, the so-called Texas sodomy case: “[It] effectively decrees the end of all moral legislation.” The California Court’s ideology is in direct opposition to the Judeo-Christian God and His Ten Commandments. The other world religions, even the straightforward atheists or sinners are not part of the "new ideology of evil.” Deceptive anti-moral terrorists who are at enmity with God and His moral law are the ideologues. These fakes whose advertising jingle is “tolerance,” will not tolerate tradition morality. They’re only tolerance i

"The Most Important Thing" to End the Abortion Agenda

"The Most Important Thing" to End the Abortion Agenda By Fred Martinez The Population Research Institute (PRI) has found that Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry are targeting Catholics as well as minorities especially the third world people here and globally according to Ginny Hitchcock, the West Coast Representative of Population Research Institute. On a worldwide basis, with the encouragement of the conservative members of the US Congress, she said that Steve Mosher and PRI are carrying out wide-ranging field research among Catholic populations in the developing world. PRI has found that the International Planned Parenthood Federation’s population control is frequently used to "subdue" Catholic populations at the expense of basic aid and economic development. "We're building on our reputation and relationship with strong pro-life members of Congress, and Catholic leaders abroad, to support human rights and to defend the Catholic faith an

Source: Huckabee Tops McCain's Veep List

Source: Huckabee Tops McCain's Veep List posted by Arkansas Jack I would love this ticket. Would the Arkjournal Thugs like it? I doubt it, just another reason to love it. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Mike Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas and defeated contender for the GOP presidential nomination, is currently at the top of John McCain's short list for a running mate. At least that's the word from a top McCain fundraiser and longtime Republican moneyman who has spoken to McCain's inner circle. The fundraiser is less than thrilled with the idea of Huckabee as the vice presidential nominee, and many economic conservatives—turned off by the populist tone of Huckabee's campaign and his tax record as governor—are likely to share that marked lack of enthusiasm. But here is the logic of picking Huckabee: 1) He is a great campaigner and communicator who could both shore up support in the South among socia
