From the article:
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is a gifted public servant of strong convictions and many professional skills. Regrettably, knowledge of Catholic history and teaching does not seem to be one of them.

Is this a zinger... It has got to sting!!!

The Good Shepherd of Denver is scrambling some eggs this week and they end up on the faces of the Democratic Party.

The Good Shepherd of Denver will hold a prayer vigil with the neice of Martin Luther King, Jr. at an Abortion Clinic in Denver this week...

When will Democrats realize that they’re only making fools of themselves when they pretend to respect religion. Here’s three reasons off the top of my head why they need to end the charade:

1: They always seem to get it wrong. Whether it’s Al Gore, Hillary, or Pelosi, they always either misquote the Bible, or take short sentences out of context and twist them around to make them suit their needs, which are usually the complete opposite of what the Bible intends to say.

2: Everyone knows they’re just pandering. Does anyone actually believe that the party of “separation of church and state,” abortion, gay marriage, and overall hatred of Christianity is basing any of their views on Judeo-Christian beliefs? Radical Islamic beliefs maybe, but if anyone thinks they have any respect Christianity I’ve got a bridge to sell you.

3: God can’t be happy with them. Something tells me that if He doesn’t like blasphemy or heresy, then using the Bible itself to bring down Christianity probably gets Him pretty miffed. When these big name Democrats die, I think they’ll be in for quite a surprise.

The following describes John the Baptist, who is still in his mother’s womb, leaping for joy at the presence of Jesus, who is still in his mother’s womb.

Luke 1:39-45

And Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Juda; And entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth. And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost: And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.

The Democrats'Univited Guest

The Democrats' uninvited guest Posted Aug. 19, 2008 11:53 AM || by Phil Lawler || category Commentary

When the leaders of the Democratic Party gather in Denver for their nominating convention, they'll hear from a number of prominent religious leaders. They'll hear from several prominent Catholics, too. But they won't hear from the Archbishop of Denver, points out Julia Duin of theWashington Times.

Archbishop Charles Chaput would be a very, very interesting convention speaker. He's intelligent, witty, modest, and thoughtful. He has taken a special interest in the relationship between religion and politics, as demonstrated by his new book, Render Unto Caesar.

But if you were a Democratic leader… if you were a supporter of Senator Obama… would you want to hand Archbishop Chaput the microphone? Nope. His message would not be congenial to the "pro-choice" crowd.

Ray Flynn, former Boston mayor and later US ambassador to the Vatican, tells the Washington Times that the failure to include Archbishop Chaput is "a serious oversight" on the part of Democratic Party leaders. Serious, yes. Oversight, no.

I heard one person could not order this book from Amazon.

I was able to order from another site, and that site claimed it has >20 copies. That is not very many copies of a book that was just released 13 days ago...
