  • We won’t live to see Europe’s Christian revival – but it will happen

    Since at least the 1960s – swathes of the Western world have witnessed unprecedented religious change and (for the most part) decline. We have simultaneously witnessed a series of social and cultural revolutions, most recently the technological and media revolution driven by the internet. That alone has profoundly changed the way people think and act... This “new evangelisation” requires that we (and I mean all Christians) are embarking on a centuries-long endeavour. And given this, we need to approach it in the right frame of mind, fortified with a spirituality of patience and perseverance. While we tend to think of...

    An obscure provision in the tax code could force the foundation started by Paul Newman to sell the food company Newman's Own. The foundation is trying to coax lawmakers to shield Newman's Own from an onerous tax bill that could force divestment. Executives are hoping Congress will put a last-minute fix in any potential deal to fund the government past Jan. 19.
  • FOIA Documents Reveal Loretta Lynch used Alias: “Elizabeth Carlisle”

    08/04/2017 11:13:54 PM PDT · by Helicondelta · 59 replies
    The American Center for Law and Justice filed a FOIA request for information surrounding the infamous 2016 Arizona “Tarmac Meeting” between Bill Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch during the ongoing Hillary Clinton investigation. The ACLJ has a summary of their initial review –SEE HERE– However, various internet researchers who have reviewed the initial 413 pages (pdf embed below) have discovered something very interesting. It appears Attorney General Loretta Lynch used an email alias in her communication to disguise her identity. Lynch’s alias appears to be “Elizabeth Carlisle“.
  • Man Named Newman Accused of Pretending to Be Architect in 'Operation Vandelay Industries' Scheme

    04/20/2017 4:08:07 PM PDT · by csvset · 31 replies
    It's a story that reads like a "Seinfeld" episode. The state attorney general has indicted a man for allegedly pretending to be an architect, an investigation Eric Schneiderman dubbed "Operation Vandelay Industries." Schneiderman says the man - whose name is, coincidentally, Paul Newman - allegedly drafted renderings for more than 100 buildings in three upstate New York counties. The state attorney general also accuses Newman of issuing false documents and falsely certifying on those documents that he was a licensed architect, when he was not. The name of the investigation was a reference to a fake company that George Costanza...

    From the outside, with its high minarets and bulbous Mughal-style dome, the Wilmersdorf mosque, located on Brienner Street in southwest Berlin, looks much the same as it did when it was built in the 1920s. But the institution, just like the city around it, has changed. Today, the mosque is a quiet place. It mainly serves as an information center: School children sometimes visit on field trips; it hosts interfaith brunches. A small community of Muslims regularly show up for Friday prayer. It’s all a far cry from the days when the Wilmersdorf mosque was the lively center of a...
  • Country Club Catholicism (the teaching on Divorce)

    First Things ^ | October 20, 2015 | Matthew Schmitz
    Catholics have a hard teaching on divorce and remarriage—hard for the married to live by and lately, it seems, hard for the bishops to uphold. In its teaching on marriage, the Church merely follows Christ, who said that a man who puts away his wife and marries another commits adultery. Many things, perhaps, can be said against Christ's view of marriage; one thing that can be said for it is that it applies equally to rich and poor. It recognizes no distinction between the laborer who ruts the village whore and the king who brazens his way with pomps and...

    The life of a rancher in the Texas Panhandle isn't an easy one. It's even harder in a family turned against itself. Hud Bannon (Paul Newman) is an ambitious, self-centered, and unscrupulous young man, always in conflict with his principled and honest, if somewhat in decline, father (Melvyn Douglas). Nephew and grandson Lon (Brandon De Wilde) is torn in his loyalties between the two. When a mysterious sickness befalls the cattle herd, tensions are pushed beyond their limits. Co-starring Patricia Neal...

    One commenter said: The way you write, I guess, seems to me to reveal a near certainty concerning the falsity of Catholic Doctrine. It seems as though you know beyond a shadow of a doubt that Catholicism simply couldn’t be true. And you’re willing to hang everything on that confidence. Too often, an argument is put forth in this form: “Protestantism has lots of problems. Therefore, Catholicism.” I once looked at it this way myself. I was hanging around some close friends who were starting a fellowship for “completed Jews,” — that is, these were all Jewish people who had...

    Your Daily Muslim ^ | August 17, 2013 | YDM
    It all started when Australian halal butcher Raymond Akhtar Ali just wanted to get a little on the side. He began to casually see one of the employees at his butcher shop, a 22-year-old non-Muslim woman. After a short period, the woman felt she had become his “sex slave,” and discovered she had been impregnated by him. With her employment on the line if she were to stop seeing him, she felt she had few choices but to carry the child to term. She gave birth in secret, with Ali present. A baby born out of wedlock is considered a...

    In the history of Roman Catholic dogma, one can trace an evolution in the theory of tradition. There were two fundamental patristic principles which governed the early Church's approach to dogma. The first was sola Scriptura in which the fathers viewed Scripture as both materially and formally sufficient. It was materially sufficient in that it was the only source of doctrine and truth and the ultimate authority in all doctrinal controversies. It was necessary that every teaching of the Church as it related to doctrine be proven from Scripture. Thomas Aquinas articulated this patristic view when he stated that canonical...

    Crisis Magazine ^ | 7/13/12 | Rev. George W. Rutler
    Shortly before he died in Oxford in 1988, the Jesuit retreat master and raconteur, Bernard Bassett, in good spirits after a double leg amputation, told me that the great lights of his theological formation had been Ignatius Loyola and John Henry Newman, but if he “had to do it all over,” he’d only read Paul. “Everything is there.” There is a temptation to think that God gave us the Apostle to the Gentiles in order to have second readings at Sunday Mass, usually unrelated to the first reading and the Gospel. But everything truly is there. Paul was one of...

    Representative Stacey Newman. ​Well, well, well. The birth control debate has finally come to our swimsuit areas, gentlemen. Yesterday Missouri State Representative Stacey Newman (D-St. Louis County) filed HB1853, which would only allow a man to have a vasectomy when doing so would protect him from serious injury or prevent his death. Ah, the legislation's on the other set of genitalia now. Rep. Newman -- whom I'd like to nominate for Hero Squad right here and now -- has been frustrated with the recent political debates over birth control access and reproductive health. The legislation is her pointed way...

    Despite not being a member of the European Union, Switzerland is under intense pressure from Brussels to raise taxes as companies flee high-tax EU welfare states in favor of more business-friendly Swiss cantons. And if the nation refuses to bow down soon, so-called “eurocrats” are threatening retaliation. The Swiss government has been in discussions with EU bosses for over a year regarding Switzerland’s non-compliance with the “EU Code of Conduct for Business Taxation.” The EU’s goal, according to the Swiss Broadcasting Corporation, is to eliminate what the supranational regime in Brussels calls “harmful tax practices” — low taxes which attract...

    Even casual observers of legendary actor/director/racing enthusiast and professional driver/philanthropist Paul Newman can tell you that amongst his widely varied personal interests, the boy liked his cars... and particularly the fast ones. The late-great movie star also possessed an independent streak that contributed to his aura and celebrity appeal, thus in the wake of initial Hollywood success of the early 1960s -starting with 1963's The Hustler- the free-thinking Newman went and got himself not a new Cadillac convertible, Rolls, or Ferrari... but a cherry-red 1963 VW Beetle Convertible.  He was soon recruited by VW's agency in the US to pose in ads with...

    Holy Eucharist Apostolate ^ | Deacon Bill Crane
    Today many people have trouble with the truth i.e. both with a little "t" and a capital "T." When it is spelled with a lower case "t," it represents the dictionary definition: 1. Conformity to fact or actuality.2. A statement proven to be or accepted as true.Spelled with a capital "T," it represents Jesus as He answered the Apostle Thomas in John 14:6, "I am the way, the truth and the life."Modern atheists seem to be enjoying the limelight (no pun intended) especially in England as they attack Pope Benedict XVI for the beatification of the famous convert John Henry...

    Three Lessons from Newman From Pope Benedict XVI's meditation at the prayer vigil in Hyde Park yesterday evening: Here is the first lesson we can learn from his life: in our day, when an intellectual and moral relativism threatens to sap the very foundations of our society, Newman reminds us that, as men and women made in the image and likeness of God, we were created to know the truth, to find in that truth our ultimate freedom and the fulfilment of our deepest human aspirations. In a word, we are meant to know Christ, who is himself “the way,...
