  • Pro-Life Agenda for the 2004 Democrat National Convention, Boston

    Pro-Life Agenda for DNC    It’s John Kerry’s home town, and it’s where the Democrat Convention will be held—the Abortion Candidate of the Abortion Party. So, it is imperative that there be a prophetic witness for Life in Boston during this time, all the more so as Kerry contends that he is a “believing and practicing Catholic”!    We have scheduled most of our activities on July 24 and 25, before the convention starts, since the media will mostly fixate inside the Fleet Center during the Convention. We especially want good numbers at the July 24 rally and the July...

    Bishop-elect knocks politiciansBy Matt O'Brien  mobrien@sentinelandenterprise.comPROVIDENCE, R.I. -- The bishop-elect of the Worcester Diocese wants to make certain every priest, parishioner, and Catholic politician in the county understands precisely what it means to be a Catholic. "Rejecting that teaching can have certain spiritual consequences," said Bishop Robert J. McManus, who views his new role as a way to help solidify authentic Catholic identity.McManus said he also wants local Catholic politicians to know when they stray from church teaching, especially on issues that have the highest "moral valence.""The most fundamental human right is the right to life, and it is most...

Flynn and a host of other luminaries speak to the enthusiastic gathering, the Legislature convened in a Constitutional Convention to vote on an amendment...

    A majority of Massachusetts residents oppose legalizing gay marriage. That's according to a new poll in The Boston Sunday Globe that shows a significant change since the state's highest court ruled three months ago that gay couples have a constitutional right to marry. The poll indicated opposition to gay marriage has jumped 10 percentage points since a poll taken just days after the Supreme Judicial Court's Nov. 18 ruling legalizing gay marriages. In the new poll, 35 percent supported legalizing gay marriage and 53 percent were opposed. In the earlier poll, 48 percent supported legalizing gay marriages, while 43 percent...

The court concluded that to insist on traditional marriage was to engage in “invidious” discrimination that the court would not tolerate. The majority, therefore, ruled that marriage must be open...

An advocacy session for students and teachers features three self-styled transgendered individuals—a member of the senior class and two recent graduates. One of the transgenders, born female, announces that “he” had been taking hormones for 16 months. “Right now I am a 14-year-old boy going through puberty and a 55-year-old woman going through menopause,” she complains. “I am probably the moodiest person in the world.” A second panelist declares...

    Bank robber's thirst for beer did him in By The Associated Press (11/15/02 - Taunton, Massachusetts) — Lots of guys like to stop for a beer after finishing a job. But getting brew after a bank job isn't such a good idea. Police in Taunton, Massachusetts, say a bank robbery suspect had a brewski just two blocks away from the scene of the crime. Detective Dennis Smith says the beer "did him in." The bar manager at an American Legion post told police that suspect Joaquim Grace was a regular customer. Witnesses said Grace ran into the American Legion had...

    BOSTON -- Voters said "adios" to the state's bilingual education law Tuesday, replacing it with a controversial initiative that mandates a one-year English immersion program. Question 2 gives nonnative English speakers one year to learn English before they are moved into regular classes. Current law allows for up to three years. "I would hope that a big victory in a state like Massachusetts would help galvanize this as a national issue," said California businessman Ron Unz, who funded the initiative and a similar question on Colorado's ballot. The initiative requires students to be taught all classes in English. A teacher...

    Sen. John Kerry's big push to wrap up the women's vote - by getting New England Patriots heartthrob Tom Brady to host a June fund-raiser - looks like it won't make it over the line of scrimmage. Because the QB/QT is taking a pass, citing a scheduling conflict on the day of the event. ``This time there was an incomplete pass but there are always other games,'' Kerry's spokesgal Kelley Benander told the Track. ``We are certainly grateful for Tom's good intentions. Even when events don't work out, you can see why Tom Brady led the Pats to a Super...
