    Other references on this topic.

    “A Doctor At Calvary: The Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ as Described by a Surgeon” Pierre Barbet, M.D. This is probably the single best book. I have given it to several priests over the years as a gift for Lent.

    “The Crucifixion ol Jesus, Completely Revised and Expanded, A Forensic Inquiry” by Frederick T. Zugibe. If you get the two-disc, Definitive Edition of the “Passion of The Christ” he is one of the people interviewed in the section on crucifixition.

    DVD “How Jesus Died: The Final 18 Hours” Trinity Pictures Ltd. This includes sections with interviews with Frederick Zugibe and with Dr. John Bonica, one of the founding fathers of the modern study and understanding of pain and its treatment.

    DVD “Crucifixtion” The History Channel.

    Thank you for the clarifications. I do not have expert knowledge of Colorado politics. If anyone else has further information or clarification please weigh in.

    I posted this as a warning to other states that are vulnerable and targeted for the same treatment.

    For Colorado, the latest Quinnipiac poll had Beauprez ahead by ten per cent among a good sample size of Likely Voters. I appreciate that from now to election day is an eternity in politics but this is surely a hopeful sign.

    Regarding the Texas Ranger story told in the Examiner column. I recall a slightly different version told about “Carbine” Williams.

    In the fifties he ran a bar in North Carolina IIRC. He would carry two Colt Commanders with the grip safeties deactivated by rubber bands, hammers cocked, safeties on. If asked “Isn't that dangerous” he would reply “You damn betcha”. Occasionally, he would pull one or both out and fire a coupla rounds into the ceiling, which was related to be not quite as reckless as it sounds since he was the only person who lived upstairs.

    I really can't remember the source. My best guess is an early sixties copy of “Guns” or, same time frame, one of those “Guns and Ammo” Quarterlies or the Specials they used to do (such as “Jeff Cooper on Handguns”).

    N.B. Rather than play around with formatting these are the changes proposed to the law.

    Section 1.b through 1.h is new (underlined in the original bill from CGA) as are Sections 2 and 3 entirely. The section in [brackets] in one is deleted.

    General Assembly Raised Bill No. 1098
    January Session, 2009 LCO No. 4528
    *04528_______JUD*
    Referred to Committee on Judiciary
    Introduced by:
    (JUD)
    AN ACT MODIFYING CORPORATE LAWS RELATING TO CERTAIN RELIGIOUS CORPORATIONS.
    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Assembly convened:
    Section 1. Section 33-279 of the general statutes is repealed and the following is substituted in lieu thereof (Effective October 1, 2009):
    (a) A corporation may be organized in connection with any Roman Catholic Church or congregation in this state, by filing in the office of the Secretary of the State a certificate signed by the archbishop or bishop and the vicar-general of the archdiocese or of the diocese in which such congregation is located and the pastor and two laymen belonging to such congregation, stating that they have so organized for the purposes hereinafter mentioned. [Such archbishop or bishop, vicar-general and pastor of such congregation and, in case of the death or other disability of the archbishop or bishop, the administrator of the archdiocese or diocese for the time being, the chancellor of the archdiocese or diocese and the pastor of such congregation shall be members, ex officio, of such corporation, and, upon their death, resignation, removal or preferment, their successors in office shall become such members in their stead. The two lay members shall be appointed annually, in writing, during the month of January from the lay members of the congregation by a majority of the ex-officio members of the corporation; and three members of the corporation, of whom one shall be a layman, shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business.]
    (b) The corporation shall have a board of directors consisting of not less than seven nor more than thirteen lay members. The archbishop or bishop of the diocese or his designee shall serve as an ex-officio member of the board of directors without the right to vote.
    (c) The members of the board of directors shall be elected from among the lay members of the congregation at an annual meeting of the corporation. The members of the board of directors shall serve for staggered terms of not more than three years. The members of the board of directors shall owe a fiduciary duty to the corporation and the members of the congregation.
    (d) The board of directors shall meet at least quarterly. A majority of the members of the board of directors shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business. Notice of the meetings of the board of directors shall be sent by mail or electronic mail to each member of the board of directors and be delivered or published in a manner likely to come to the attention of a majority of the members of the congregation.
    (e) The general administrative and financial powers of the corporation shall be exercised by or under the authority of the board of directors. Such powers shall include, but are not limited to:
    (1) Establishing and approving budgets;
    (2) Managing the financial affairs of the corporation;
    (3) Providing for the auditing of the financial records of the corporation;
    (4) Developing and implementing strategic plans and capital projects;
    (5) Developing outreach programs and other services to be provided to the community; and
    (6) Any of the powers enumerated in section 33-1036.
    (f) The pastor of the congregation shall report to the board of directors with respect to administrative and financial matters.
    (g) Any member of the corporation is entitled to inspect and copy, during regular business hours at the corporation’s principal office, any of the business records of the corporation including accounting records and financial statements of the corporation if such member gives the corporation written notice of his demand at least five business days before the date on which he wishes to inspect and copy.
    (h) Nothing in this section shall be construed to limit, restrict or derogate from any power, right, authority, duty or responsibility of the bishop or pastor in matters pertaining exclusively to religious tenets and practices.
    Sec. 2. (NEW) (Effective October 1, 2009) The provisions of section 33-279 of the general statutes, as amended by this act, shall apply to all corporations in existence on January 1, 2010, that were organized under subpart D of part II of chapter 598 of the general statutes prior to said date.
    Sec. 3. (NEW) (Effective October 1, 2009) Any person having reason to believe that monetary contributions to a corporation organized under chapter 598 of the general statutes are being misappropriated and not being used for the purpose for which they were given may report that belief to the Attorney General. The Attorney General shall, pursuant to his authority under section 3-125 of the general statutes to represent the public interest in the protection of any gifts, legacies or devises intended for public or charitable purposes, investigate such report and take such action as he deems necessary.

    This act shall take effect as follows and shall amend the following sections:
    Section 1 October 1, 2009 33-279
    Sec. 2 October 1, 2009 New section
    Sec. 3 October 1, 2009 New section

    In the Catholic Church, basically, the Pope is in charge and he appoints the Bishops. Each Bishop is in charge of his Diocese and he appoints the Pastor to each Parish. The Pastor reports to the Bishop personally and is responsible for all aspects of running the Parish.

    My reading of this bill is that the Holy Father and the Bishop and the Pastor are no longer in charge, they are replaced by a group of parishoners who are totally in charge of the Parish. Several leftist/liberal groups who claim to be part of the Church have been agitating for this for years. It would fit in nicely with their agenda.

    This way of running a Church may be the way many Churches are run and it is fine for them if that is what they want to do. The problem, the ‘wrongness’ with this bill is that it COMPELLS the Catholic Church to be run that way. I am forced to conclude that their main reason (ignore the purpose stated at the end of the bill it is a smokescreen) that the legislators who introduced this bill did so is because don’t like the Catholic Church. I submit if this is such a noble idea why aren’t they submitting bills for the other Christian Churches or for Jewish Congreations?

    Again, if they can do this to the Catholic Church they can do this to any Church. If this succeeds is a “Patriotic Catholic Church of Connecticut” run by the state just like they have in Communist China far behind?

    If you are not a Roman Catholic and think this has nothing to do with you, just remember:

    When the Nazis came for the communists, I remained silent; I was not a communist. When they locked up the social democrats, I remained silent; I was not a social democrat.

    When they came for the trade unionists, I did not speak out; I was not a trade unionist.

    When they came for the Jews, I remained silent; I was not a Jew.

    When they came for me, there was no one left to speak out.

    Pastor Martin Niemöller

    If they can do this to the Catholic Church they can do this to any Church. If they are able to do this to the Catholic Church they WILL do it to the other Churches and Temples.

    Matthew 7:

    9 Or what man is there among you, of whom if his son shall ask bread, will he reach him a stone? 10 Or if he shall ask him a fish, will he reach him a serpent? 11 If you then being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children: how much more will your Father who is in heaven, give good things to them that ask him?

    This is truly a complicated topic and, as noted, the Doctrine of Limbo is an imperfect answer to a difficult question. The Church is beginning to struggle with this again after all the centuries and there is no definitive Magisterial pronouncement as yet.

    That said, I think one can never go wrong in trusting the Mercy of God, especially when He is ‘Abba’. As Jesus said in Matthew who of us, with all our sins, would give his son a stone when he asks for a loaf? If one must become like a little child to inherit the Kingdom of God who then who of us could ever be more "a little child" then one of these?

    The Armorbearers Ministry consists of a group of God-called men who are responsible for protecting the anointing and the pastoral mantle that rests upon Reverend Michael L. Pfleger. This is accomplished through consistent prayer, fasting and personal assistance. The Armorbearers share an individual and collective desire to lay down their lives for the life of another, namely Pastor Pfleger. These men assist Pastor Pfleger on Sundays and also travel with him extensively throughout the year. The Armorbearers are also responsible for receiving and accommodating all guests of Pastor Pfleger, whether speaking or visiting. The term, "armorbearer" first appears in the bible in the Book of Judges, however, the characteristics, attributes and role of the God-called Armorbearer is described specifically in 1 Samuel with young King David as the primary role model. Substantial emphasis is placed on being "called" by God to this ministry due to the seriousness of the role of Armorbearer. The new member is expected to successfully complete a supervised three-month observation period along with a curriculum-based teaching series designed to prepare the new member for effective service. Foundational Scripture: "Greater love has no one than this, that lay down his life for his friend(s)." John 15:13;

    This is the usual nonsense from Bloomberg, nothing new, but please NOTE WELL that he is touting the American Hunter and Shooters Association as an ally in his schemes. See my previous post at http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1670361/posts for details. There is evidence for a probable link to a Democratic consulting group and the Democrats (surprise, surprise!)much like "Americans for Gun Safety". Their leaders have a clear, established history of antigunism, for example Ricker and Rosenthal (of "Stop Handgun Violence" from Massachusetts).

    Here we go! Note well how Bill is providing cover for Hillary, 'making smoke' on the issue of gun control. I saw this part of the tape and he was so eminently reasonable and serious and thoughtful about the issue he really should be nominated for an Oscar!

    What independents and wavering gunowners are supposed to think is: no, Larry, I don't support any new gun laws, nor does Hillary or any responsible Democrat, we have the Brady Instant Check and that is enough, all that we need to do is add mental health records to the Instant Check in a better way, so all of you gun owners can vote for Hillary and all the other Democrats in 2008.

    What he was saying in coded 'dog whistle' politicalspeak to the Democrats and other gungrabbers is: Look, I have to downplay this now or we'll never get back into control of both houses and the White House, remember what happened after the AWB in '94 and how many lost their seats, then Algore not only didn't win but he couldn't carry his home state because of the issue of guns, I'm just pretending to be reasonable here to solidfy the support of the wavering independents and those who are starting to believe American Hunters and Shooters Association we set up with the DNC and which we're now using to troll for wavering gunowners Bloomberg just mentioned AHSA in his speech on guns, just be quiet and let us handle this and as soon as we're elected we'll really hammer gunowners like Schumer said!
