    Where Are You from? A Reflection on Recent Tensions over Immigration, Race, and Ethnicity Msgr. Charles Pope • January 14, 2018 • A priest friend of mine who immigrated to this country from Jordan back in the 1970s is often asked, “Where are you from?” He humorously answers, “I am from my mother’s womb.”True enough! There is an even more fundamental answer, rooted in Scripture, which speaks to the origin of every human person: You are from the loving will and heart of God. Before you were ever formed in your mother’s womb, God knew you and thought about...

    Republican Rep. Mia Love deplored President Donald Trump for reportedly criticizing immigrants coming to the United States from what he called "shithole countries." "I can't defend the indefensible. You have to understand that there are countries that struggle out there. But their people, their people are good people and they're part of us. We're Americans," Love, who represents Utah and is the first Haitian-American elected to Congress, said on CNN's "State of the Union." Referring to immigrants from African countries, Trump asked lawmakers during an Oval Office meeting on immigration reform, "Why do we want all these people from 'shithole...

    As a divinity school student, I had just started working as a student chaplain at a cancer hospital when my professor asked me about my work.>SNIP< "I talk to the patients," I told him. "You talk to patients? And tell me, what do people who are sick and dying talk to the student chaplain about?" he asked.>SNIP< They talk about the love they felt, and the love they gave. Often they talk about love they did not receive, or the love they did not know how to offer, the love they withheld, or maybe never felt for the ones they...

    The other day the wife and I were shopping in a "Walmart store in South Florida for some Christmas goodies. We finished, paid for our stuff and were on our way out to the car. I stopped my wife and, told her to sit, relax, I had to go to the "little boys" room. I walked into the bathroom did my thing, and was washing my hands, when I noticed this young Black guy trying to manipulate his wheel chair into the bathroom to relieve himself. He was having a hard time, struggling with the wheel chair. Before I could...

    On the Necessary Order of Love Msgr. Charles Pope • January 4, 2017 • A reading in the breviary this week from the preaching of St. Augustine offers sound advice on what theologians often call “the order of love.”It is a general obligation that that we must love all our fellow human beings. It is also true that we must love God with our whole heart and mind, above all people and things. Loving all humanity presents problems, though, because we have not met most other people on the planet, nor have we met those who lived and died...
  • Why dont NFL players just burn the flag?

    lowell sun ^ | 10/2 | Peter lucas
    What protesting NFL players and owners should do next is burn the American flag before each game. This would naturally come after the playing of the national anthem is banned from all NFL games. The NFL could replace the anthem with a song from Beyonc, for instance. Or, to listen to New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady talk about love and unity among protesting teammates, maybe something from the Captain & Tennille would be more appropriate. On the kneeling or interlocking arms as a form of protest, Brady said, I just think theres just a great love for my teammates.

  • The documentary -- "Mully" is a must-watch: Remarkable story of Kenyan who saved 10,000 children

    Charles Mutua Mulli, one of the most interesting and inspirational people youve probably never heard of, woke up in his familys hut in a tiny village in Kenya one morning in 1955 and discovered that his parents had taken his brother and fled. Charles had been abandoned. He was 6 years old. The tale of that childs experiences over the ensuing 60 years is told in a compelling new documentary titled Mully (he later changed the spelling of his surname), directed by the actor/filmmaker Scott Haze. It is a rags-to-riches story of extraordinary dimensions i.e., Mully literally went from...

It is impossible to hijack the Weekly Gardening Thread. Planting, Harvest to Table(recipes)preserving, good living - there is no...

    One of my favorite kinds of news stories is the report of a new scientific study that verifies the obvious. You've seen them. New research finds that heterosexual men are attracted to very attractive women. Evidence collected by wildlife researchers has confirmed that bears really do use the woods as toilets. But some research that corroborates the obvious is exciting because some people refuse to accept the obvious. Which brings me to the work of Dr. Gregory Berns, a neuroscientist at Emory University and the author of "What It's Like to Be a Dog." Berns has, from what I can...

    A radical group linked to rogue billionaire George Soros has been providing scripts containing anti-Trump talking points for constituents to read aloud during congressional town hall meetings. One of the scripts distributed by the Revolutionary Love Project encourages town hall participants meeting with their member of Congress to accuse the Trump administration of wait for it xenophobia, racism, and Islamophobia. Constituents are urged to use those precise words to forcefully condemn President Trumps immigration and border security initiatives, Aaron Klein reports at Breitbart News. Information about the scripts came as leaked audio from anti-Trump activists associated with the...

    Apparently, as long as violent leftists label their victims fascists, they are free to set fires, smash windows and beat civilians bloody. No police officer will stop them. They have carte blanche to physically assault anyone they disapprove of, including Charles Murray, Heather Mac Donald, Ben Shapiro, me, and Milo Yiannopoulos, as well as anyone who wanted to hear us speak. Even far-left liberals like Evergreen State professor Bret Weinstein will be stripped of police protection solely because the mob called him a racist. If the liberal shock troops deem local Republicans Nazis because some of them support the...
