  • First The Bait, then the Hook. A Sober Meditation on Temptation

    Archdiocese of Washington ^ | 6/24/2014 | Msgr. Charles Pope
    Satan, it would seem, does not act in an arbitrary manner to tempt us. Rather, he is more of a master hunter who carefully sets traps, or a skilled fisherman who, having studied our behavior chooses just the bait he thinks most effective. He’s calculating, and clever.Sadly most of us, by comparison, are far less calculating and clever in seeking to avoid temptation and sin. We seem more often to engage in the wishful thinking that no trouble will befall us, and our strategy seems to live more with dumb luck. Would that we were as ingenious in holiness as...
  • Blacks benefit from Florida ‘Stand Your Ground’ law at disproportionate rate

    African Americans benefit from Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” self-defense law at a rate far out of proportion to their presence in the state’s population, despite an assertion by Attorney General Eric Holder that repealing “Stand Your Ground” would help African Americans. Black Floridians have made about a third of the state’s total “Stand Your Ground” claims in homicide cases, a rate nearly double the black percentage of Florida’s population. The majority of those claims have been successful, a success rate that exceeds that for Florida whites. Nonetheless, prominent African Americans including Holder and “Ebony and Ivory” singer Stevie Wonder, who...

    Overdosing on Reality’s Bitter Pills by Norma Zager “It is better to light one small candle than to curse the darkness …” Eleanor Roosevelt At a certain age the awareness of one’s own mortality arises like a whale from the sea spouting reality like a blowhole onto everything surrounding our existence.

    The latest chapter in the conflict between the governments of Israel and Palestine is generating loads of media ink – and huge, whopping lies. Here’s a roundup of the top myths related to this war: 1) Israel launched a preemptive war. Congressman and former GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul, suggested to Press TV – the official propaganda arm of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad – that Israel’s actions were “preemptive”. His logic: Israel has nukes and Hamas doesn’t, so it’s unfair. Look, a war isn’t automatically “preemptive” just because one party was dumb enough to pick a fight it can’t win....

    'Talks hit snag because Hamas insisted all 450 prisoners be freed' Jerusalem Post Palestinian sources on Tuesday told the pan-Arab daily Al Hayat that negotiations for the release of kidnapped IDF soldier Gilad Schalit were discontinued due to Hamas's insistence on freeing all 450 prisoners on the list it presented to Israel. According to the sources, which the paper termed "reliable," the figure behind Hamas's hardened position was the organization's military chief, Ahmed Jabri, who had led the Hamas delegation to Egypt. Egyptian sources told the paper that the Israeli envoys to the talks had said that they had given...

    January 3, 2009: The Israeli attack on Hamas forces in Gaza on December 27th, hit fifty targets within 220 seconds. The fifty Israeli aircraft assembled off the coast, and delivered a well rehearsed attack designed to take out Hamas targets before key commanders could get away. Israeli intelligence had discovered Hamas plans for such an Israeli attack, which involved key Hamas personnel immediately dispersing to hiding places. These included hospitals, where the Hamas men would dress in staff uniforms and blend in. Other safe havens included nursery schools, and other places where the Hamas officials would be surrounded by lots...

    Those who know Spider-Man only from Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst in the movies might be surprised to learn that in the comic book, the web-spinning hero has been married for almost 21 years. That's why the comic world is in an uproar over Marvel Comics' decision to undo the marriage of Peter Parker and red-haired bombshell Mary Jane Watson, reversing two decades of storytelling. In Amazing Spider-Man #545 last week, Peter and Mary Jane make a tearful deal with the devil-like character Mephisto: In exchange for saving Aunt May's life, Mephisto erases all traces of the Peter-Mary Jane marriage...

The revelations came as the Israeli Government rejected a request from the army to immediately retaliate against Monday's suicide attack in the southern city of Eilat, in an attempt to hold together the fragile peace process. The attack on a bakery killed three people and the bomber, marking the first such suicide bombing in nine months.

    Did I hear Rush Limbaugh say "Culture of Life"? I think I have even heard our local talk show hosts use the phrase. But I wonder if they really understand what it means. It would appear by the polls, the comments of folks on talk radio and news shows and by conversations with friends and relatives that very few people really understand the issue at stake in this battle between the cultures of Life and Death. I think people on both sides of the Terri Schiavo argument have really missed the whole point. Most discussion revolves around two issues: Michael...

So, too, is the unspeakable killing rampage in Minnesota where teen-aged Jeff Weise gunned down his grandfather and his grandmother and eight other victims at his high school. It is a struggle often referred to in the Essenic texts in the Dead Sea Scrolls as the war between light and darkness, described in the New Testament and attested to by scores of scholars and holy...

    Do you hate evil? Much of humanity doesn't. But if you embrace Judeo-Christian values, you must. A core value of the Bible is hatred of evil. Indeed, it is the only thing the Bible instructs its followers to hate -- so much so that love of God is equated with hatred of evil. "Those who love God -- you must hate evil," the Psalms tell us. The notion of hating evil was and remains revolutionary. The vast majority of ancients didn't give thought to evil. Societies were cruel, and their gods were cruel. Nor did higher religions place hating evil...

    The United Way of Southeastern Pennsylvania has decided to distribute funds held in escrow for the local Boy Scouts organization to two other greater Philadelphia organizations that benefit youth. The United Way took this action because the Cradle of Liberty Council has remained steadfast in support of the national Boy Scout policy regarding the appointment of homosexuals to leadership positions. Nonetheless, this latest action by the United Way disappointed local Scout leaders and has left them scrambling to make up the funding shortfall.

    Stockholm (ENI). A Swedish court has sentenced a pastor belonging to the Pentecostal movement in Sweden, Ake Green, to a month in prison, under a law against incitement, after he was found guilty of having offended homosexuals in a sermon. Soren Andersson, the president of the Swedish federation for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights (RFSL), said on hearing the sentence that religious freedom could never be used as a reason to offend people. "Therefore," he told journalists, "I cannot regard the sentence as an act of interference with freedom of religion." During a sermon in 2003, Green described homosexuality...

    Spain Will Legalise Gay 'Marriages' - Zapatero Thu Mar 18, 2004 04:04 PM ET MADRID (Reuters) - Spain will legalize gay unions, although it may not call them marriages, incoming prime minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero said on Thursday, but he did not set a time-frame for the move. "We are going to present a bill to set gay unions on the same footing as marriage," he said in an interview on Spain's Telecinco television channel. "From a semantic point of view marriage may be a concept that does not cover this type of union, but it will have the...

    The debate over homosexual marriage has gone on loudly in this nation for a while now, and the Leftists in the establishment media, specifically those in the newspaper industry, have made their biases known to the world -- from the front page to the editorial page. But yesterday the Washington Post declared a new frontline in this cultural battle -- KidsPostKidsPost, as you might be able to discern from the title, is the page in the Washington Post dedicated to news for kids, providing issues of the day written in a way that they will understand. For example, today's KidsPost...

    Seeing Rosie O’Donnell condemn President Bush just after she “married” her girlfriend, Kelli Carpenter, was bizarre in a tiresome sort of way. O’Donnell claimed, “We were inspired to come here by the sitting president and the vile and vicious and hateful comments he made.”If O’Donnell had any sense of humor or irony, she would look at herself and say, “Gee, for such a tolerant, open-minded person, I sure do condemn and vituperate an awful lot, especially on what should have been the happiest day of my life.”Maybe I’m some sort of pervert, but I don’t recall bearing anyone in the...

    From LA Times of March 12: ... "Divided over gay marriage" by Roy Rivenburg Paula Ettelbrick, a law professor who runs the International Gay & Lesbian Human Rights Commission, recommends legalizing a wide variety of marriage alternatives, including polyamory, or group wedlock. An example could include a lesbian couple living with a sperm-donor father, or a network of men and women who share sexual relations. One aim, she says, is to break the stranglehold that married heterosexual couples have on health benefits and legal rights. The other goal is to "push the parameters of sex, sexuality and family, and in...

    Who are they? Well, here’s the short list. John Ashcroft, Tom Delay, Dick Cheney, Rick Santorum, Antonin Scalia, George W. Bush, Pat Robertson, Don Rumsfeld and they taste blood. Why? Because they are just inches away from accomplishing their objective…the take over of our country by their radical, extremist, right wing, Christian agenda. What will they do when they have accomplished that? Take over the world. Think I’m kidding? John Ashcroft, who, as we all know, lost to a dead guy in his home state, before being appointed by our first appointed president to the attorney general spot, was...

County officials have been discussing the move for more than a week and they made the decision based on a legal opinion. County offcials refused to release the opinion and County Attorney Agnes Sowle did not return repeated telephone calls for comment. But a number of county officials confirmed that the county will begin granting the icenses immediately. The county sheriff's office also was alerted to be on hand at the...
