  • [Catholic Caucus] Argentinian Nun Says Pope Advocates Contraception. Again.

    A famous Argentinian nun has said that Pope Francis told her that several forms of contraception could be permissible to stop those women who want to avoid pregnancy from choosing abortion. It wasn’t long ago that the idea of a pope promoting contraceptive use — an intrinsic evil, condemned infallibly by the Church — would have seemed impossible. But in recent years, we have seen multiple indications that for Francis, the existing boundaries on moral teaching are far too rigid for his liking.In 2016, in the wake of a scare that the Zika virus was causing serious birth defects in the babies...

And he came in with a story yesterday, told me about it, and I just looked at him with my mouth wide open and staring at him in total disbelief. And I said, “What?” He said, “Oh, yeah, it’s happening.” I said, “I don’t know what to make of this. Explain this to me. What exactly is happening?” And he explained it again.

He’s feeling under siege, you know, because those mean ol’ people in the fake news media are mounting the fakest of all fake scandals against his company, all because he shared 50 million customers’ data – you know, the Facebook business model – with a company that did work for the (gasp!) evil Donald Trump campaign!

  • 2018 Winter Olympics Breaks Record, Stocks 110,000 Condoms For Athletes

    The astonishing number is reportedly 10,000 more than the number of condoms distributed to athletes during the previous Winter Olympics held in Sochi, Russia. In fact, it breaks the record of the most number of condoms prepared for all participants in the history of Winter Olympics. According to the outlet, the amount will be allotted to 2,925 athletes representing 90 countries that will stay in the Olympic Village. That means each athlete gets approximately 37 condoms for the duration of the event, which will run from February 9 to February 25. To put it into perspective, that’s about 2.5 condoms...

    In a disgusting attempt to promote its abortion agenda, abortion activists sent six pro-life Trump administration officials a box of condoms. Although pro-life advocates generally don’t oppose contraception the publicity stunt was meant to shame the officials into supporting abortion. Six Trump appointees in the Department of Health and Human Services today were sent a colorful package of Endangered Species Condoms and a letter urging them to promote abortion. The holiday delivery of these “condom care packages” is part of the Center for Biological Diversity’s project to raise awareness about its efforts to push population control on the world. “These...

    “When you come to a fork in the road,” Yogi Berra is said to have recommended, “take it.” That is more or less what the Order of Malta have just done in their elections. The 56 voters had a choice between the old order, represented by previous Grand Master Fra’ Matthew Festing, and the reformist movement dominated by German knights, most prominently Albrecht von Boeselager.That is an oversimplification, of course; but the two sides certainly exist. The Festingites believe that the order’s constitution works tolerably well. They merely want to expand the order’s charitable work in 120 countries around the...

    'Stealthing' could be considered assault say experts about secret removal of condom during sex. Paper in Columbia Journal of Gender and Law examines little-known practice some say is 'rape-adjacent' Haley says she knows the trauma of sexual assault. The 20-year-old Edmonton woman says she has experienced multiple forms of it. But when she discloses the details of the latest instance, she says some people shrug it off. That's because Haley is referring to "stealthing," the secretive and non-consensual removal of a condom during otherwise consensual intercourse. (CBC has agreed to not publish Haley's full name as well as those of...

    Some call it stealthing, others calls it sexual assault. It’s a disturbing new trend with dangerous consequences. Men are taking off their condoms during sex without their partner’s knowledge, then bragging about it online. "To change this from a legal behavior to an illegal behavior, the legislature or the courts are going to have to further define what consent means,” Chamberlain said. The study also stated there is no record of a United States Court reviewing a case of stealthing. It did note foreign countries like Switzerland and Canada have prosecuted men for the act.

Pope has dismissed the Grand Master and now wishes a successor of...

    The ousted Grand Master of the Knights of Malta Catholic charity will attend a meeting that could elect his successor, the group said on Wednesday, in a direct defiance of Pope Francis' order for him to stay away. A spokesperson for the Knights said Matthew Festing, who resigned on Jan. 24, had informed the group that he would come to the meeting this Saturday at its headquarters in Rome. It was not clear if he would stand for re-election, as some of his supporters have urged him to. On April 15, Archbishop Angelo Becciu, the Vatican's deputy secretary of state,...

    The 2016 report also said Malteser International's official policy was 'inconsistent with Church teaching.' A 2016 internal report into Malteser International found that some projects were distributing contraceptives which could cause abortion.The report, seen by the Catholic Herald, was written by three leading bioethicists: Dr Peter Weir, Professor Luke Gormally and Professor John Haas. It was sent to hundreds of Order of Malta members around the world.The Order of Malta, of which Malteser International (MI) is part, commissioned the report in 2015, after concerns were raised about possible distribution of contraceptives by MI projects.The report’s authors stated: “We have been informed that...

This is what is attested to in the following letter, from a person very well-informed on the affairs of the Order, rich in information that...

    Germany’s mass-selling Bild newspaper has reported that the Grand Chancellor of the Order of Malta, Baron Albrecht Freiherr von Boeselager, accepted a 30 million Swiss franc donation ($31 million) on behalf of the Order from what Bild calls “a dubious trust” in Geneva. Boeselager denies any wrongdoing. The Grand Chancellor told the newspaper that over a seven-year period, the Order would be drawing 30 million Swiss francs from the fund, which Bild calls by its acronym CPVG. So far, the Order has received 3 million francs from the trust, whose existence the Register first brought to public attention in January....
