    La Salette Journey ^ | December 25, 2014 | Paul Melanson
    Religion News Service is reporting that: "Cardinal Walter Kasper, one of Pope Francis’ closest advisers, has sought to downplay the pontiff’s scathing critique of the Curia earlier this week. Kasper, who previously led the Vatican body responsible for promoting Christian unity, said the pope was asking the Curia, or Vatican administration, to examine their conscience in a bid to promote spiritual renewal. The German cardinal, joined by Argentine Cardinal Leonardo Sandri, said Francis was asking the Curia to set an example. 'The fundamental thing is he wants spiritual reform of the Curia,' Kasper told the Italian daily Corriere della Sera...
  • “Do Not Judge”: What’s That Supposed to mean?

    The Christian Post ^ | August 22, 2013 | James R. Aist
    Born-again Christians who are proclaiming the truths of God’s Word are increasingly being accused, especially by unbelievers, of judging them, against the admonition of Jesus, “Do not judge”, as if Christians are not allowed, much less instructed, to judge anyone or anything, ever. But, is that really what Jesus meant? Is that a valid accusation, or is it merely a ploy to mislead us and keep us from speaking out on current moral issues, so that they can freely contend for their version of moral truth without opposition?

    The point where we reach the limits of civil debate about policy is, like Justice Potter Stewart’s famous description of pornography, hard to define but you generally know it when you see it. That’s the only possible reaction to a blog post by Jerusalem Post columnist Larry Derfner who wrote on Sunday to say the actions of the terrorists who murdered eight Israelis near Eilat last week were justified. Yes, you read that right.

    But "legalists" wants you to live under the Old Testament law in order to get "Tithes" to pay their mortgages as "professional Christians" and to do this they reimpose the falsehood that you must live a"sinless" life. Sin is undefined but they want to throw you back under the law to get you to pay money and feel guilt when your salvation was a free gift from God. The key to this argument is Paul in Chapter 7 of Romans.

"For God so greatly loved the world that He gave up His only begotten Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish but have eternal life" (John 3:16).

    GENEVA – The U.S. appealed on Thursday its own victory in a landmark trade ruling against European subsidies for planemaker Airbus, asking the World Trade Organization to toughen its condemnation of the EU's financial meddling in a market worth more than $3 trillion over the next two decades. Details of the appeal weren't immediately made public. But U.S. trade spokeswoman Nefeterius McPherson confirmed that Washington had joined Brussels in challenging findings from June's 1,061-page verdict, which found that Airbus gained an unfair advantage over U.S. competitor Boeing Co. through billions worth of low-interest loans, infrastructure provisions, and research and development...

The president’s response comes after a reported announcement by Russian President Dmitry Medvedev that Moscow intends to formally recognize the two breakaway provinces in Georgia, where Russia continues to maintain troops in defiance of a cease-fire agreement and mounting international pressure to withdrawal. “We expect Russia to live up to its international commitments, reconsider this...

    The U.S. Supreme Court created a huge political backlash when it ruled that local governments could use eminent domain to seize private property and transfer it to other private owners for "economic development." Since the Kelo ruling in 2005, 42 states have enacted limitations on eminent domain — not always effective ones. But like lawmakers in many other states, some California officials are trying to block real eminent domain reform. On June 3, Californians will vote on Proposition 99, a ballot initiative sponsored by groups representing cities, counties, redevelopment agencies and other pro-condemnation interests. It purports to protect property rights...

The proposal by the Texas Department of Transportation for the road known as Trans-Texas Corridor 69 is drawing sharp criticism from South Texas landowners and elected officials who say the state should instead spend its money turning one or both existing highways into interstates. Three options are on the table for building the first interstate to the Valley: expansion of Highway 281, expansion of...

While this may be true in some circumstances, it is a double-edged sword--a very sharp and dangerous one.

    By Sobhy Mujahid, IOL Correspondent CAIRO, May 12 ( - Several scholars from Al-Azhar, the world's highest Sunni religious authority, condemned the decapitation of an American civilian by unknown people in Iraq, saying Islam stands against such acts. "Islam respects the human being, dead or alive, and cutting off the American's head was an act of mutilation forbidden by Islam," Ibrahim Al-Fayoumi, a member of Al-Azhar's Islamic Research Academy, told He cited a number of verses from the holy Qur'an which affirm giving due respect to dead people regardless of their race or religion. However, Fayoumi suspected the whole...

    The top Roman Catholic clergyman in the Holy Land on Monday urged Israeli and Palestinian leaders "to come back to reason," saying the area has plunged into bloody madness. Despite the violence, Latin Patriarch Michel Sabbah said in his annual Easter message that he remains hopeful about peace. "We have to believe that peace is possible, because when we say peace is impossible, that's the death for everyone," Sabbah said. At a news conference, Sabbah criticized Israeli and Palestinian leaders. However, he reserved his harshest words for the Israelis, saying peace can only come if Israel halts its harsh military...

    Many of you are familiar with the plight of the Saha family of Chester County, PA. For the past five years, they have been fighting the city of Coatesville PA, which is trying to condemn the Saha farm in order to build a golf course. The city is "home rule." In November 2003, Coatesville voters approved three amendments to the city charter. These amendments basically prohibit the city from continuing its activity in this area, unless voters agree. The city council believes these amendments are unconstitutional, and may soon challenge them in court. In the meantime, however, they seem to...

    Sep. 8, 2003 Annan condemns Israel's attack on Yassin U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan condemned Israel's attempt to kill the spiritual leader of Hamas, accusing the state of using excessive force and violating international humanitarian law, the U.N. spokesman said Monday. Israel dropped a 250-kilogram (550-pound) bomb on a Gaza City apartment Saturday, lightly wounding Sheik Ahmed Yassin, who is a paraplegic, and 15 bystanders. Israeli troops then blew up the apartment building. On Sunday, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon warned that Hamas leaders are "marked for death" and won't have a moment's rest. Not only are extra-judicial killings a violation of...

    Can someone tell me the steps involved? I have heard the term "declaration of taking" (which I assume is a document the city/town files with the court. I have also heard the term "first reading." How do these terms and concepts relate to each other? I also understand that the condemnee has 30 days to file preliminary objections. Would that response be to the declaration of taking? Thanks.

    CALIFORNIA CITY - The city may use eminent domain proceedings to acquire land for a proposed Hyundai Motor Co.-Kia Motor Corp. test track facility, despite vocal protests by property owners. The decision was made at a special meeting Tuesday afternoon, when City Council members, sitting as the Redevelopment Agency, unanimously passed a resolution that would begin eminent domain proceedings to acquire the remaining property for the site. Of the 7 square miles of land needed by Hyundai-Kia, approximately 80% was owned by a railroad firm, which the company purchased last year. The rest of land consists of 211 lots; approximately...

    Arutz 7 ^ | 20 May 2003
    What´s Behind A Condemnation? "The Palestinian Authority condemned the terrorist attacks." So proclaim the headlines in many news reports in Israel, the U.S., and around the world. What's behind these condemnations? Nothing at all, says Middle East expert Prof. Rafi Yisraeli of the Hebrew University - and they even cause damage. Speaking with Arutz-7 today, Prof. Yisraeli said that there are at least three aspects to these condemnations that must be noted: "For one thing, they always say that the attacks cause harm to the Palestinian cause - and not that they're morally wrong. This means that when the...
