She is still alive? Haven’t heard any whining from her in ages ... thought maybe she ran off with some fat queer lady or overdosed.
Maureen is one of those women who acts like a second class citizen. I don’t want to be like her.
Since mass murder is a universal aspect of collective totalitarianism, it is not optional - it is required.
I believe this can be explained in a number of ways. One way is to point out the saying "Ordo ab Chao" - "Order Out of Chaos." People with a kind heart believe this means that the goal is to create order out of the chaos of the world.
But there is another way to interpret this saying, and that is to define "order" as "collective totalitarianism." In which case it means that "chaos" - i.e. events surrounding mass murder - is what creates and enables the existence of collective totalitarianism.
And why? Because collective totalitarianism is, by definition, anti-life. Thus it must murder life, and exist within an environment of murder. It's literally why it exists - it's evil.
And the most profound fools in the galaxy are those that believe they can make it "work" for them. That they will escape it's jaws by setting it up as a system and feeding of of it, by reducing themselves to bugs, to energy parasites that feed off of the suffering and death spewed out by their giant death camp machine, like maggots living in sh*t.
THAT is the "victory" they strive for - the "secret meaning of life" they hide, not because of it's genius, but because of it's stark insanity.
Through it, they believe they can somehow escape the Laws of God.
well, to quote Mario Puzo: Fools Die.
Mr. Dowd was using “something”? I have to think that Maureen happened because, you know, sometimes “something” breaks.
This is a difficult question to answer succinctly yet charitably. For a better explanation, I refer you to Casti Connubii (Pope Pius XI, 1930), Humanae Vitae (Pope Paul VI, 1968), and Evangelium Vitae (Pope John Paul II, 1995).
Simply stated, however, the use of the condom (or any other physical or chemical contraceptive) to prevent the pregnancy of the wife intentionally separates the conjugal (baby-making) act from its procreative function. When a husband and wife engage in the conjugal act, they each sacrifice everything to the other because of their love for one another. God may choose to bless this marital love with a child. Of course, a marriage can persist and indeed thrive even if God does not bless it with children; however, why frustrate God’s designs and put you trust not in the Almighty Who can create a child for you but in some piece of plastic to thwart His blessing?
Remember, in a true marriage, marked by love and not by lust, God unites the two partners into one flesh. The condom frustrates this sacred mystery by creating an artificial barrier between the spouses. It also lowers the dignity of the wife (in the eyes of the husband) from that of a loving, nurturing mother of his children yet unborn to a mere object for his self-gratification and perverse perceived pleasures.
Applied to a different organ system, it’s akin to using a physical barrier to separate breathing from absorbing oxygen (despite no medical necessity so to do). Granted, reproduction isn’t as essential to human survival as respiration is, but the barrier compromises the reproductive system and, by extension, the marriage—perhaps imperceptibly to those involved—as surely as a piece of plastic wrap across the face compromises the respiration.
Other contraceptives effectively disable the uterus and create a hostile environment for the conceived child and lead to the premature death of an embryonic human.
But again, the popes explain far more accurately, lovingly, and powerfully than I can. So please read them.
Well, Onan is in Genesis 38, so he predates Levirite law, although he does presage it. He did not use a condom because no one yet had invented them. Instead, he practiced the primitive form of birth control most readily available to him. Rather than declining to contribute as biological father of the children of Tamar altogether, he went halfway, beginning the act but intentionally stopping short of accomplishing its procreative aim. A condom merely provides a more technologically sophisticated method of doing likewise.
You say, “here, outright overt killing is unpalatable,” but at least 54 million American babies have perished from outright killing. It just occurs in secret, and the innocent victims don’t see it coming and lack the strength and means to stop it. We Americans kill the weak, voiceless, and defenseless, those without anyone to speak for them.
Euthanasia is coming soon. Who will the victims be? The weak, almost voiceless and defenseless, those physically unable to protest, those without support or incapable of galvanizing public opinion. We already dismissed one Florida woman as a potted cactus despite national news coverage. Think it’s not getting more commonplace with each passing year? Think again! (And Obamacare will make the odious practice of offing the weak even more pervasive.)
And the killing won’t start there. It never does.
The key: “in secret”. Involving someone never seen by human eyes, done behind the closed door of a “doctor”.
Hence my use of “overt”.
Want a baby boy, not a girl? No problem, Medicaid will pay
SPRINGFIELD - Illinois is facing a budget crisis with an exploding Medicaid system. The legislature devised and passed a 456-page plan last week that cuts specified doctor and hospital Medicaid reimbursements, eliminates some senior drug coverage, toughens eligibility requirements as well as other changes in SB 2840.
Despite an array of changes, the nearly-broke Medicaid system will still fund abortions for Illinois’ poor women. Tuesday, Life Action released a video in which a South Austin Texas Planned Parenthood counselor is caught on tape promoting gender selection abortions paid for by Texas’ Medicaid system.
Life Action’s video raises a valid question. Does the same happen in Illinois? There are few state restrictions currently in affect, Illinois’ Medicaid system funds abortions and gender selection abortions are not banned.
