Kudos to Bishop Weigand, for calling Gov. Davis to task last week for his fraudulent Catholicism.
of Catholics with respect to the tenets of their faith, must be shaken. Neither faithless politicians, nor run of the mill Catholics, should be left pretending that they are believers, when they do not hold with the fundamental beliefs of the Church.
Bishop Weigand counseled Davis and any abortion advocate to "abstain from receiving Holy Communion until he has a change of heart." Stung by the bishop's directive, the governor's office fired back: "There are a lot of Catholics who are pro-choice. Does the bishop want all Catholics to stop receiving Holy Communion? Who's going to be left in church?"
The answer, governor, to the first question is, yes if you are no longer in communion with the teachings of the Church, stay in your seat. Receiving Holy Communion is serious business. St. Paul taught that those who receive communion unworthily drink judgment upon themselves (I Corinthians 11). A Catholic receiving communion signifies his union with Christ and the Church.
Gov. Davis and other "Catholic" politicians like Nancy Pelosi or John Kerry who trumpet their support for abortion are not in union with the Church. Their reception of communion is like reciting your wedding vows while having an affair. Such politicians seek respectability by claiming a religious affiliation, but they have sanctioned the legal killing of millions of children. Let them attend a partial-birth abortion on Saturday afternoon and see, then, if they can approach the altar on Sunday.
The answer to second question "Who's going to be left in church?" is: faithful Catholics. The governor has confused political power and the Church, worrying about how many people (votes? dollars?) would be left in the pews if abortion proponents who attend Catholic parishes staged an exodus.
Those who obdurately refuse to accept the tenets of the Catholic church need to LEAVE IT!

If you look in the dictionary under "obdurate" you will see a picture of Saddam Hussein. No matter what the evidence, he never gives in. When inspectors tried to interview the Iraqi scientists, they were given the runaround. If the interview had been scheduled for the afternoon, Saddam sang out, "Morning!" If the interview was set for the morning, Saddam chanted, "Evening." I guess he is holding their families as hostages, and once he has found them, he'll never let them go.
"The Daschle-Democrats are on the war path on the
economy. They are crassly rooting against a recovery, and
they are working like armies of wood ants behind the scenes
to erode any and all of President Bush's economic initiatives
including most prominently his bold tax cut plan. Anything
that would hasten an economic growth revival before the
2002 elections, they reflexively oppose."
Demorcrats are quite obdurate
And they continue to berate,
But Bush's new man,
And economic plan,
Will help keep America great.

Huh. Two girlfriends ago:
One dismal rainy night, a taxi driver spotted an arm waving from the shadows of an alley halfway down the block. Even before he rolled to a stop at the curb, a figure leaped into the cab and slammed the door. Checking his rear view mirror as he pulled away, he was startled to see a dripping wet, naked woman sitting in the back seat.
"Where to?" he stammered.
"Union Station," answered the woman.
"You got it," he said, taking another long glance in the mirror.
The woman caught him staring at her and asked, "Just what the hell are you looking at, driver?"
"Well ma'am, I noticed that you're completely naked, and I was just wondering how you'll pay your fare."
The woman spread her legs, put her feet up on the front seat, smiled at the driver and said, "Does THIS answer your question?"
Still looking in the mirror, the cabbie asked, "Got anything smaller?"

The ever obdurate
Susan Sarandon* plans to make an idiot of herself before the State of the Union Address. She says Iraq has no connection to Al Queda. Me thinks she needs to fire those who are providing her with intelligence ;-)

Callous denotes a deadening of the sensibilities; as, a callous conscience. ... Obdurate implies an active resistance of the heart and will against the pleadings of compassion and humanity.
And if you remain callous and obdurate, I
Shall perish as he did, and you will know why,
Though I probably shall not exclaim as I die,
Oh, willow, titwillow, titwillow!
