  • 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...

    TFP Student Action ^ | 10-04-12 | TFP
    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...

(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...

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.

As a result, the course is not in synch with Catholic teaching,” he stated. However, despite the archbishop’s misgivings the course was not stopped. According to the New Jersey...

The last assault occurred at Arizona State University when a pro-homosexual man leaned out of his car window and deliberately sprayed TFP members on the sidewalk with pesticide, saying: “Have a drink!" “Although most of...

    Scandal: 96 Catholic Universities Have Pro-Homosexual ClubsHelp stop this scandal by signing the TFP’s urgent appeal to the presidents of Catholic universities Here is a list Catholic universities with pro-homosexual clubs Historically, Catholic universities have been beacons of truth. They have set a standard of intellectual progress and moral excellence. They have elevated culture, formed the minds of great men, and paved the way for abundant scientific breakthroughs. However, these beacons of truth are now failing. Moral values are being undermined on many Catholic campuses and the principles that once guided souls in the noble task of higher learning are...

    “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea” (Matt 18:6.) Scandalizing students nationwide, 23 Catholic colleges and universities intend to allow performances of the lewd "V***** Monologues" play, a piece replete with sexual encounters, lust, and graphic descriptions of lesbian behavior. (Asterisks added for decency's sake) After being forced to see the play as part of a class, Christopher, a student from Massachusetts wrote: “…it was a horrible exhibit of...

    10 Ways to Celebrate Christmas on Campus By James Bascom and John Ritchie “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt amongst us.” This most grandiose, beautiful, and unfathomable mystery serves as a cornerstone of the holy Catholic Faith. Every heresy and attack against the Church somehow denies this mystery, whereas all Catholic beliefs are built upon it, and without it the Faith crumbles to the ground, for as St. Ephrem the Syrian said: “If Christ be not God, our salvation is a lie.” Throughout the past 2000 years, every Christian people, each with their own unique customs and traditions,...

    Hollywood movie "Brokeback Mountain" is scheduled to stage at Seton Hall University, a Catholic institution founded in 1865. The film is currently listed on the university’s web site under “Multicultural Program Film & Lecture Series.” Catholics are being called to peacefully protest because the film: >>> Approves same-sex relations, adultery, nudity, profanity and drug use. It is a blow to Catholic education, America’s Christian roots, the institution of the family and very foundations of morality and society. >>> "Brokeback Mountain" is the antithesis of authentic Catholic education. It scrambles human emotions and encourages students to tolerate sin. The U.S. Conference...

    If someone attacked your mother, would you be upset? Would you protest? I’m sure you would. Well, the Mother of God is grossly insulted by the University of Virginia’s student newspaper, The Cavalier Daily, which printed a Nativity-like cartoon of Our Lady holding the Infant Jesus beside Saint Joseph on August 24. The figure depicting Saint Joseph says: "Mary…I don't mean to ruin this special moment, but how did you get that bumpy rash?” suggesting a sexually transmitted disease. To which a Mary-figure says, “I swear, it was Immaculately Transmitted.” This is outrageous public blasphemy! Click here to protest now....

    TFP Student Action launches Pray for Notre Dame. Join thousands of concerned students and parents in prayer and reparation. So many students and parents had trusted Notre Dame’s new president, Fr. John I. Jenkins, would restore moral order on campus by stopping two blatant anti-Catholic events from occurring year after year: “Queer Film Festival” and “V-Monologues.” However, hopes that Notre Dame would ban immoral events were shattered on April 5, when Fr. Jenkins issued a statement allowing pro-homosexual film festivals or events to continue at Our Lady’s university. Fr. Jenkins said, “[I] see no reason to prohibit performances of 'The...

    America’s largest Catholic university offers minor in “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Studies,” TFP Student Action calls for peaceful protest DePaul University is apparently the first Catholic university to formally establish an undergraduate minor program in homosexuality. The new program began in January, sparking controversy and concern over the state of moral decay within higher learning. “I must say the program is shameful, especially for a university that advertises itself as Catholic. The Church teaches that homosexual vice is intrinsically evil, sinful, unnatural. To pretend the topic is open to other valid interpretations is to simply deny Catholic teaching,”...
