  • Controversy After Eminem Drops More Than a Dozen F-Bombs on National Mall During ‘Concert for Valor’

    Individuals turned to Twitter following Eminem’s performance on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., to both defend and express outrage over the rapper’s flagrant use of the F-bomb at The Concert for Valor. The Michigan-born rapper riddled his HBO-streamed performance with curse words at the concert aimed at supporting U.S. servicemen and women. “Happy motherf***ing Veterans Day,” Eminem shouted into the microphone. Users on Twitter were quick to react, with some defending the rapper’s use of profanity and others criticizing his word choice.

    Pope Francis stunned a live audience in St. Peter’s Square Sunday when he accidentally dropped the Italian equivalent of the F-bomb instead of a similar-sounding word he meant to use. “If each of us were to accumulate wealth not only for ourselves but to put at the service of others, in this f*** — in this case God’s providence would manifest itself in this gesture of solidarity,” he said. The pontiff apparently meant to use the word “caso,” which means “example” in Italian. Instead, he said “cazzo” — a simple mistake, but one that came along with wildly different context,...
  • Pope strongly defends Priestly Celibacy and Consecrated Virginity (Rorate Caeli)

    10/05/2013 5:29:52 PM PDT · by Mrs. Don-o · 47 replies
    Family is the vocation that God wrote in the nature of man and woman, but there is another vocation, complementary to that of matrimony: the calling to celibacy and to virginity for the Kingdom of Heaven. It is the vocation that Jesus himself lived. How to recognize it? How to follow it? I answer you with two essential elements on how to recognize this vocation to the priesthood or to consecrated life: praying and walking in the Church. These two things go together, they are intertwined. At the source of every vocation to the consecrated life there always is a...

    It’s not a joke. It’s something that Pope Francis has thought about before: naming a woman cardinal. Those who know the pope, both before and after he took over from Ratzinger, say that the first Jesuit pontiff is not only surprising people with his comments, but also with his actions. And this has been happening throughout his first six months in the role.Those who think that Francis – who has all the simplicity of a parish priest – is a naïve man are wrong. This pope isn’t an ordinary pope. He has come to St. Peter’s with concrete plans for...

On Twitter, hundreds of liberals vented their frustration with the president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. Below are a handful of the samples of F-bombs liberals dropped on the Catholic cardinal during and after his benediction. “Grant us the courage to defend life…waiting to be born, welcomed & protected,” he said, excoriating Democrats to support religious liberty as well in light of the controversial Obama HHS mandate that Catholics and pro-life...

    Such a mindset was on display last night on the Fox News television show “Hannity.” A liberal guest, Bob Beckel, dropped the “F bomb.” He was caught off guard when the show returned from a commercial break. He had been in a heated argument with two conservative guests who joined him on the program. Beckel’s outburst is typical of the angry liberals we see so often in the media... The Beckel outburst is another chance for Americans to gain an insight into the mind of a hardcore liberal. As we can plainly see, it is not a pretty sight.

    Well this one, courtesy of Mediate's Frances Martel, is for the ages. Bob Beckel was obviously carrying on with an off-air argument and missed any cue about going back live. So he finished yelling at Neil Boortz, "You don't know what the f**k you're talking about." Sean Hannity tries to get him to apologize, and Beckel absolutely refuses. Then Hannity tries to inform him that they were on air. Beckel refuses to acknowledge that. Then when he finally realizes he just dropped a two-ton F-bomb on live television he apologizes and blames Hannity for not running his show very well....

    Not to be outdone by show-business personalities, President Obama and Vice President Biden also feel free to drop F-bombs in public. When we discuss those at the highest levels of our government, we are dealing not just with teachers but with professors − in this case, professors of public speaking. When gray-haired public officials feel that they must mimic foul-mouthed middle-school boys and cursing rappers in order to appear “cool,” we know we are in deep trouble. For centuries, public figures were able to express themselves − in fact, to express deep thoughts and inspiring ideals − without the use...

Firstly, it is not enough that he found it very humorous on the day Joe Biden dropped the F-bomb at the signing of Obamacare, as they presented their administration's "Big F'ing Deal." Biden related Obama was "laughin' like the devil" and saying it was "the best thing" about the ceremony. Now, he has whispered that line into the microphones, himself, granted he said "big freaking deal," and so properly he even articulated...

We do not present this as an idle joke, because it is an excellent way to subject the Obama Administration to the ridicule and contempt it deserves.* This will help elect a Republican majority that will repeal the so-called health care reform legislation and also block enactment of crippling "greenhouse gas" regulations whose real purpose is to enrich New York investment...

    Forget losing weight, exercising more or saving money. A standard New Year's resolution simply won't do for the perennially button-pushing Supervisor Chris Daly. He announced at the rules committee hearing this morning - and reiterated on his Facebook page - that "For 2010, I vow to use the word "f---" in each of my remaining Board of Supervisors meetings." He's termed out of office a year from Friday so that means dozens of potential Daly f-bombs are on the way.

Arnold Schwarzenegger typically attaches a message to bills he signs or vetoes telling lawmakers why he took the action. But a Democratic assemblyman who heckled the governor during a recent event in San Francisco may have received more than one message: the veto letter itself, and a not-so-subtle rebuke creatively hidden within it....
