    SHOCKER STATEMENT COMING FROM A CHURCH THAT HAS HAD PROBLEMS WITH ABUSE: "Pope Francis called for "severe punishment" for pedophiles" Pope Francis called for "severe punishment" for pedophiles on Sunday after new details emerged in Italy of the 2014 death of a six-year-old girl who is alleged to have been thrown from an eighth-storey balcony by her abuser. "This is a tragedy. We should not tolerate the abuse of minors," Francis said, departing from prepared remarks at his weekly Sunday message and blessing to tens of thousands of people in St. Peter's Square.

    TOKYO (Reuters) - Tucked away in a quiet residential street in Kawasaki city in Japan is a refurbished workshop with a plain silver exterior and black draped windows that residents describe as creepy. The business inside, Sousou, is one of Japan's latest so-called corpse hotels, a camouflaged morgue used to store some of Japan's mounting pile of bodies waiting for a spot in one of the nation's overworked crematoriums. “Crematories need to be built, but there isn’t any space to do so and that is creating funeral refugees," said Hisao Takegishi, who opened the business in 2014.

Indeed, her vivacious and plain-spoken presence has long been missed during these years of her declining health. She called this her time of purgatory and purification. In an extraordinary grace, the Lord called her at 5:00 PM on Easter Sunday, likely the very time at which He was making His first...

He spoke his mind."This loss happened because our legal system did not protect the people who need protection most," DeLay told Fox News on March 31. "The time will come for the men responsible for this to answer for their behavior." DeLay’s strong language worried some Republicans. They pointed...

    Two Canadian anti-vaxx parents have been accused of letting their 19-month-old son die of meningitis, a treatable disease for which they refused medical care and antibiotics. Instead, they tried and failed to heal their son with home remedies in March 2012. David and Collet Stephan tried to cure a disease that infects the fluid around the spinal cord and brain with such treatments as olive leaf extract, whey protein, water with maple syrup, and juice with frozen berries. After young Ezekiel continued to suffer for two weeks, the Stephans changed treatments to apple cider vinegar, horseradish root, hot peppers, onion,...

    An estimated 45.3% of American households - roughly 77.5 million - will pay no federal individual income tax, according to data for the 2015 tax year from the Tax Policy Center. Roughly half pay no federal income tax because they have no taxable income, and the other roughly half get enough tax breaks to erase their tax liability. On average, those in the bottom 40% of the income spectrum end up getting money from the government. Meanwhile, the richest 20% of Americans, by far, pay the most in income taxes, forking over nearly 87% of all the income tax collected...

    DALLAS (AP) -- A letter from the Supreme Court's doctor says Antonin Scalia suffered from coronary artery disease, obesity and diabetes, among other ailments that probably contributed to the justice's sudden death. Presidio County District Attorney Rod Ponton cited the letter Tuesday, when he told The Associated Press there was nothing suspicious about the Feb. 13 death of the 79-year-old jurist. He said the long list of health problems made an autopsy unnecessary.

    Veteran homicide investigators in New York and Washington, DC, on Monday questioned the way local and federal authorities in Texas handled the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. "It's not unreasonable to ask for an autopsy in this case, particularly knowing who he is," retired Brooklyn homicide Detective Patricia Tufo told The Post. "He's not at home. There are no witnesses to his death, and there was no reported explanation for why a pillow is over his head," Tufo said. "So I think under the circumstances it's not unreasonable to request an autopsy. Despite the fact that he has...

An autopsy will not be conducted and police say there were no signs of foul play. According to the Washington Post, the hours after Scalia's death were filled with "chaos, confusion and conflicting reports." Scalia is survived by his wife, Maureen Scalia, his nine children and several grandchildren. While the conspiracy theories are,...

    The death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia doesn't merely mark a tragedy for Constitutional philosophy - it may mark the death of American Constitutionalism as a whole. Scalia's philosophy of jurisprudence is well-known and shaped two generations of conservative thinkers: the Constitution ought to be interpreted according to its original meaning. This shouldn't have been a groundbreaking notion given that most legislation is interpreted according to those rules, but because leftist jurists have spent a century chiseling away at the meaning of the Constitution based on their personal political beliefs, Scalia's reinvigoration of traditional interpretive methodologies made him a...

    PHOENIX, Arizona, December 15, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – The American Civil Liberties Union is suing Arizona over a law banning abortion based on gender or race. Arizona's Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act  requires abortionists to verify that clients are not committing sex-selection abortions or race-selection abortions. The ACLU's Alexa Kolbi-Molinas is actually arguing that the pro-life law – which protects babies from abortion over gender and race – "stigmatizes" women of color. She says the law is unconstitutional. The ACLU lawsuit claims that the pro-life law "is a blatant violation of equal protection and the prohibition against...

    Given the way the Mideast is headed, things are so unpredictable that this present Jerusalem flare-up could run the gamut from burning itself out in a few days to inciting a war against Israel, eventually bringing in Iran, the Muslim world, and then the whole world. The Arabs claim it is an Intifada, the Arabic word for resistance – but what is enormously troubling is the fallacy behind it. Fueling much of this Arab fury is a renewed Jewish presence on the al-Aqsa Mosque compound. Over the past two years, Jews have started to gather outside al-Aqsa, and the Muslims...

    If the media won’t tell the truth, the American people will – by turning to social media, according to speakers at a pro-life rally on Capitol Hill. On Thursday, pro-life leaders called upon Congress to defund Planned Parenthood in the upcoming budget. Students for Life organized the “Women Betrayed” rally, held in light of the recent videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s harvesting of aborted baby parts. During the event, speakers, such as former Alaskan governor Sarah Palin, spoke with the MRC about the “bogus business” and how to work around its PR firm, the “lamestream media.” At the rally, various speakers...

    ...She is a serious criminal. Linda Gibbons doesn’t count her arrests, but probably she’s been in the back seat of squad cars a couple of dozen times in the past two decades — and that’s including the five years she took off to care for her dying father. She has spent an astonishing total of 10 years and seven months behind bars. ...She’s a veteran pro-life protester outside Toronto abortion clinics. She’s on the wrong side (the pro-life side) of the wrong issue (abortion) and yet she persists in trying to make her voice heard. Canadians have largely forgotten the...

    Innocuous phrases Alison Parker used every day to describe her job may have led to her death, simply because Vester Lee Flanagan thought they were racist. The 24-year-old TV reporter who was shot and killed by the disgruntled ex-employee on Wednesday somehow angered him by using terms like 'swinging' by an address or going out into the 'field' while she was an intern at WDBJ. It sheds further light on the murderer's erratic behavior, details of which have emerged since he callously gunned down Parker and cameraman Adam Ward live on breakfast TV. Flanagan, 41, clashed repeatedly with photojournalists, belittling...

    THE WALL: a blog of Baptist Voice Ministries ^ | November 14, 2011 | Dr. Mike Harmon
    Within the Christian faith, there is a significant amount of confusion regarding what happens after death. Some hold that after death, everyone “sleeps” until the final judgment, after which everyone will be sent to heaven or hell. Others believe that at the moment of death, people are instantly judged and sent to their eternal destinations. Still others claim that when people die, their souls/spirits are sent to a “temporary” heaven or hell, to await the final resurrection, the final judgment, and then the finality of their eternal destination. So, what exactly does the Bible say happens after death? First, for...

    In Less Than Human, Dr. Smith asks, “What is it that enables one group of human beings to treat another group as though they were subhuman creatures?” According to Dr. Smith, the answer isn’t difficult to come by. He concludes, “Thinking sets the agenda for action, and thinking of humans as less than human paves the way for atrocity. The Nazis were explicit about the status of their victims. They were Untermenschen — subhumans — and as such were excluded from the system of moral rights and obligations that bind humankind together. It's wrong to kill a person, but permissible...

    Sarah Palin reacted to the controversy over Planned Parenthood harvesting fetal tissue by posting a message asking which symbol killed 90,000 black babies last year: the Confederate flag or the Planned Parenthood logo.Palin talked to Bill O’Reilly tonight and and lamented how there was so much focus on the Confederate flag as a racist symbol when Planned Parenthood has aborted thousands of black babies.She even said that they’re “in the business of finding targets so they may attract those who would perhaps be disadvantaged in some ways.” In other words, Palin thinks that Planned Parenthood is specifically targeting women in...

    IG Farben was the monstrous German chemical cartel. In the age of monopoly capitalism, if you were a sausage maker, you couldn't be a solo act, you'd either join the sausage cartel or they'd drive you out of business like Standard Oil did to small petroleum shippers. IG Farben took the blame for losing WW1, after their invention factory developed the Haber-Bosch Nitrogen Fixation process to make gunpowder and fertilizer out of air, they were 6 months too late making gasoline out of coal, so they took the blame, were looking for the man who became Hitler by 1923.
