  • Contraception: the gateway to moral decay

    LifeSiteNews ^ | June 6, 2014 | Fr. Shenan Boquet
    Based on the findings of a recent Gallup poll released on May 30, Americans are becoming more accepting of a number of controversial issues. At the top of Gallupís list of 19 issues was contraception, of which 90 percent of Americans approve, followed by divorce at 69 percent and premarital sex at 66 percent. Others making the top ten were embryonic stem cell research (65%), childbirth outside of marriage (58%), same-sex unions (58%), euthanasia (52%) and abortion (42%). These numbers shouldnít surprise us; after all Americans have been steadily rejecting a Judeo-Christian morality in favor of secular relativism for decades....

    The Justice Department on Monday will instruct all of its employees across the country, for the first time, to give lawful same-sex marriages sweeping equal protection under the law in every program it administers, from courthouse proceedings to prison visits to the compensation of surviving spouses of public safety officers. In a new policy memo, the department will spell out the rights of same-sex couples, including the right to decline to give testimony that might incriminate their spouses, even if their marriages are not recognized in the state where the couple lives. ... ďThis means that, in every courthouse, in...

    Exclusive: Greg Laurie sees U.S. going way of Israel, punished by God with takeover. I think that our culture in the United States seems to be turned upside down. It seems that, in the perception of many, what was once considered good is now perceived as bad. What was once perceived as bad is now thought of as good. We even see this reflected in our use of words. A long time ago, people used expressions like ďholy smokeĒ or ďhunky dory.Ē My generation said things like ďFar out, man!Ē and ďWhoa, that is really heavy!Ē And one word that...

    Guns donít kill people. People kill themselves. Thatís the story from the American Journal of Public Health, which reports that since Barack Obama was sworn in as president in 2009, the leading cause of death in America has been suicide. During the entire administration of George W. Bush and earlier, motor vehicle crashes were the leading cause of death by injury. But that all changed in 2009, with the rate of death by suicide rising by 15 percent over the past 10 years, while death by unintentional motor vehicle crash dropped 25 percent during the same period. Whatís the take-away...

    About two hours after declaring his support for same-sex marriage last week, President Obama gathered eight or so African-American ministers on a conference call to explain himself. He had struggled with the decision, he said, but had come to believe it was the right one. The ministers, though, were not all as enthusiastic. A vocal few made it clear that the presidentís stand on gay marriage might make it difficult for them to support his re-election. ďThey were wrestling with their ability to get over his theological position,Ē said the Rev. Delman Coates, the pastor of Mt. Ennon Baptist Church...

    BROOKLYN, Ohio (AP) ó Police shot and killed an armed man at a crowded Cracker Barrel restaurant where a woman and a girl had been killed and another person was wounded, sending customers fleeing out the back door. The restaurant said the violence appeared to be the result of a domestic dispute between two customers. Authorities said a woman called 911 from the restaurant Thursday night, saying her husband was upset because she told him she was leaving him. He left the restaurant and was circling the parking lot, the woman told police.

    RFFM.org Commentary In 1994 Republicans steam-rolled their way into national Congressional power behind the ideals of moral certainty, fiscal responsibility and a promise to change the way things were done in Washington, D.C. However, it didn't take long for the trappings of political power to ensnare many of those who were swept into office by the 1994 Republican Revolution and, by the year 2000, it was hard to tell a Republican from a Democrat. Using the state of Illinois for an example, conservative members of the GOP probably reached their zenith of influence right around the time the national Party...

    The Decalogue, dangerous? The commandments certainly are regarded as hazardous by the Irritable-American community, which successfully petitions the courts to banish them from public life. At least these stalwart secularists give the Decalogue its due; most of us admire the Ten Commandments just enough to avoid taking them seriously. If we grasped how radical they truly are, we'd find them an offensive stumbling block to us middle-class moderns, who live in a rebellious age characterized by sociologist Daniel Bell as "the rejection of a revealed order, or natural order, and the substitution of the ego, the self, as the lodestar...

    Your children and grandchildren are in danger of losing their Christian faith, according to Mission America, the Barna Research Group and the New York Times. Entertainment is a leading influence in the paganization of today's youth. According to the Motion Picture Association and A.C. Nielsen, the average child will spend up to 63,000 hours with the mass media of entertainment by the time he or she is 17 years old, but only 11,000 hours in school (most of which are anti-Christian), 4,000 hours with their parents and 800 hours in church if they never miss a Sunday.
