  • Will the Boy Scouts surrender their HONOR like Obama wants?

    02/03/2013 3:21:22 PM PST · by concernedAmerican1 · 57 replies
    Send this URGENT alert to all your friends. The anti-family movement is pressuring the Boy Scouts to surrender. To give up their honor.  To accept unnatural behavior -- sin -- and abandon their morally sound membership policy which bars open homosexuals from holding leadership positions. According to a recent statement by Deron Smith, director of Boy Scouts public relations, “... the BSA is discussing potentially removing the national membership restriction regarding sexual orientation. This would mean there would no longer be any national policy regarding sexual orientation..." The proposed policy shift would place the moral welfare of 2.7 million boys...

    SIGN YOUR PROTEST HERE On January 17, Santa Clara University will welcome Amy Tan, a novelist who has made no secret of her support for abortion “rights,” as well as the unfettered use of contraceptives. Ms. Tan has used her novels as a means to promulgate erroneous opinions, with abortion featuring prominently in one of her books, The Joy Luck Club. Additionally, Ms. Tan has not shied away from announcing her anti-Catholic position. In a public Facebook post sprinkled with obscenities, she harangued pro-life politicians, accusing them of “wanting to pervert the lives of women.”  (Warning: foul language) However, Santa...

    Catholic colleges with these clubs are listed here After meticulous examination, TFP Student Action volunteers found pro-homosexual student clubs at 111 Catholic institutions of higher learning.  Of the 211 Catholic universities and colleges listed by Ganley’s Catholic Schools in America, 52 percent appear to sponsor organizations which undermine Catholic morality. From 2009 to 2012, the number of pro-homosexual clubs operating on Catholic campuses has risen by 7 percent. Research conducted in 2009 found clubs at 45 percent of Catholic colleges.   Many of these clubs act as platforms of dissent.  They sponsor sinful events and promote ideas that advance the...
  • The Principle of Contradiction: 8 things everyone should know

    What is the principle of contradiction? In a nutshell, it’s this:  a thing cannot be and not be at the same time.  Saint Thomas Aquinas shows that not even God can deny the principle of contradiction, the absolute law of the order of being, because it is impossible for God to will the absolutely impossible (Summa Contra Gentiles, Book 1, chap. 84). Father Garrigou-Lagrange gives us eight principal reasons, based on Aristotle, for defending the necessity and real validity of the principle of contradiction. They are briefly: 1. To deny this necessity and this validity would be to deprive words of...

    Members of the American TFP and America Needs Fatima prayed the Rosary and offered public reparation and protest against the “P*** Christ” blasphemy by Andres Serrano in front of the Edward Tyler Nahem Art Gallery on 57th Street in New York City on September 27. The offensive exhibit shows a crucifix immersed inside a jar of urine. “It’s not art, but blasphemy,” said TFP Student Action Director John Ritchie. “It’s a symptom of out culture’s spiritual rot and it's shameful that world leaders issue verbose statements in defense of Muhammad, while remaining silent about this crude insult against the Sacred Person...

    Again the University of Notre Dame is under pressure to officially recognize a ‘Gay-Straight Alliance’ (GSA) club on campus.  Pro-homosexual activists are using the incremental, step-by-step approach to wear down Catholic resistance and boil the proverbial frog slowly. According to The Observer, the Office of Student Affairs is “currently reviewing a proposal to create an official gay-straight alliance (GSA) at Notre Dame.”  Although similar applications have been denied in the past, the student-run newspaper prints an ambiguous response from university president Fr. John Jenkins on the issue.  In a recent interview, he says:  “I think it’s time for a fresh...

    Although the sin of abortion is perhaps the greatest injustice of our time, Catholic Fordham University in New York recognizes a pro-abortion advocacy group called “Law Students for Reproductive Justice.” However, more than just advocating abortion on a remote web site, Law Students for Reproductive Justice openly promotes the culture of death.   SIGN YOUR PROTEST HERE According to Fordham’s official web site entry, for instance, the group takes part in “an ongoing escort program in partnership with Planned Parenthood.” Other activities include: “a research partnership with local pro-choice legal organizations,” and “brownbags with reproductive rights activists.” It is incomprehensible...

    http://youtu.be/CKpckraQ2W0 Free speech is less free in Arkansas.  In fact, volunteers with Tradition Family and Property (TFP—Louisiana) were recently attacked in Little Rock during a peaceful rally against Obamacare and its HHS mandate.  The incident occurred on July 17. Man Targets American flag At the McCain Mall in North Little Rock, a middle-aged man came up from behind the group as they calmly prayed the rosary. First he said, “Praise be Mary,” giving the impression he was friendly.  Next he shouted, “Get the hell out of here!” and rushed our American flag bearer Elias Bartel, knocking him off his feet...

    Why does the homosexual movement continue to target the Boy Scouts of America with relentless protest? To STAND with the Boy Scouts, sign your petition here Two national BSA board members are pressuring the organization to abandon its morally sound membership policy which bars open homosexuals from holding leadership positions.   Groups and advocates who promote “tolerance” have also collected over 300,000 online petitions” — aided by liberal media publicity — to force the Scouts to accept unnatural vice in their ranks. However, the Boy Scouts are standing strong by their Oath:  “On my honor I will do my best...

    Watch the video here Introducing pro-abortion HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to Georgetown’s graduating class of 2012, the Dean of the Georgetown Public Policy Institute (GPPI) said: “She works every day to improve access to health care for our nation’s children…” However, the dean ignored the truth:  Sebelius promotes pro-abortion policies that turn the womb into the most dangerous place for unborn children to live in America. On May 18, as Georgetown University prepared to honor the chief architect of the Obamacare contraception mandate, TFP Student Action volunteers were kicking into gear for a prayerful protest at America’s oldest Catholic...

    The oldest Catholic university in America has invited a top pro-abortion politician, Kathleen Sebelius, to speak at its graduation awards ceremony on May 18.  She will be a “great inspiration to our students,” promised Judy Feder, professor at Georgetown’s Public Policy Institute. (see link) In the wake of the unjust Obama/HHS mandate, however, the scandalous invitation is like a deliberate poke in the eye to Catholics.   After all, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius is responsible for unleashing a fierce persecution against the freedom of the Church – the Obamacare mandate – which forces Catholic individuals and...

    Update: University spokesman sidesteps issue; pro-abortion professor calls TFP “monsters.” Confirmed: Some pro-abortion internships are funded by ND Gender Studies. The Department of Political Science at the University of Notre Dame currently lists the following menu option on its webpage: “How to Find a Summer Internship.”  When students click on that option they are sent to a page titled:  “Summer Internship Opportunities,” which provides live links to pro-abortion groups. (Link) Alerted about this fact, over 10,850 students and parents joined TFP Student Action in politely asking Fr. John I. Jenkins, president of Notre Dame, to have the website entries that...

After examining the official web sites of 244 Catholic universities and colleges in America, TFP Student Action found that 107 – or 43% – recognize student clubs that favor the homosexual agenda.  Many of these clubs promote same-sex “marriage,” open homosexuality in the military, and push for the mainstreaming of unnatural vice.

    A Christian schoolboy was suspended from Western Hills High School in Texas for saying he thought that “being a homosexual is wrong.” Can you believe this? The boy’s name is Dakota Ary, and here is his story: According to news reports, during a German class, Dakota’s teacher started talking about religion and homosexuality in Germany, and even posted a picture on the wall of two men kissing.  Dakota turned to a friend and said he was a Christian and that “being a homosexual is wrong.”  The teacher reportedly overheard his comment and sent him to the principal's office.  Then, the...

    We must fight back. Urgent petition:  Keep the Cross at Ground Zero A group called American Atheists is suing to get the World Trade Center Cross removed from the 9-11 Memorial and Museum in New York City.

Immediately, the steel Cross became a powerful sign of hope for those who lost family members on Sept. 11, and for every American who loves God. Now this beloved symbol is under attack from American Atheists. They are suing to get it...

    Anniversaries are normally festive occasions. But the general mood at the 20th annual School of the Americas (SOA) Watch protest at Fort Benning, Georgia was closer to a death knell than a milestone. It used to be a significant event of the Catholic Left. At its height a few years ago, more than 15,000 gathered to protest the School of the Americas, now renamed the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation (WHINSEC).The event still attracts a broad cross-section of leftist, dissident Catholic groups and causes, from drug legalization, abortion, and homosexual “marriage” to Liberation Theology and women’s ordination. However, the...
