  • Christie calls on Obama to demand Cuba return cop killer Joanne Chesimard

    12/21/2014 8:58:22 PM PST · by ObamahatesPACoal · 20 replies ^ | Erin O'Neill
    Gov. Chris Christie has called on President Barack Obama to demand that Cuba return a woman convicted of killing a New Jersey State Police officer in 1973 before the United States moves forward with a plan to restore diplomatic relations with the communist nation. The Republican governor wrote in a letter to Obama that he profoundly disagrees with the decision announced last week to re-establish diplomatic ties with Cuba, saying he does not share the view that taking that step "without a clear commitment from the Cuban government of the steps they will take to reverse decades of human rights...

    The Atlantic ^ | December 4, 2014 | Shannon Keating
    Since Peter Pan’s first adventures to Neverland in 1904, by way of the Duke of York’s Theatre in London, his story has been retold in countless variations on stage, page, and screen. More recent versions, including tonight's Peter Pan Live! on NBC, have been rewritten in attempts to unburden the text of its disturbing racial stereotypes. Peter himself has also been reincarnated many times over. Where his Edwardian roots cast him as an impish child, still with all his baby teeth, contemporary storytellers envision a prepubescent boy physically and emotionally tottering on the edge of teenagedom—that stepping stone to adulthood...

    Archdiocese of Washington ^ | 8/23/2014 | Msgr. Charles Pope
    The Gospel today sets forth the biblical basis for the Office of Peter—the Office of the Papacy—for Peter’s successors are the popes. The word “pope” is simply an English version (via Anglo-Saxon and Germanic tongues) of the word “papa.” The Pope is affectionately called “Papa” in Italian and Spanish as an affectionate indication that he is the father of the family, the Church.That Peter receives an office and not simply a charismatic designation we will discuss later. As to certain objections regarding the Office of the Papacy, we will also deal with them later. But for now let’s look at...

    Antakya (Agenzia Fides) - The cave church of St. Peter in Antioch is still closed and restoration work is not yet complete. But the prefecture authority has granted permission, however, to the Christians of Antioch, Iskenderun, Mersin and Adana to visit the cave church on June 29 to celebrate with a moment of prayer, the Solemnity of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul. This was confirmed to Fides Agency by the Capuchin Franciscan Fr.

    The Hill ^ | John Feehery
    Congressman Pete King (R-N.Y.), a familiar pugilist on cable television, took his message of a robust American foreign policy to New Hampshire for the sixth time over the weekend. This was after a week of jousting with GOP Sens. Ted Cruz (Texas) and Rand Paul (Ky.) about the direction of the Republican Party. He called Cruz a nihilist and Paul an isolationist. (SNIP) King’s pretty good at math, or at least he understands the basics of demographic change, and as son of Irish immigrants, he has a reflexive distaste of xenophobic latter-day know-nothings. Now, King probably wouldn’t have been invited...

The letter from Rep.

    Laity and clergy should reject, respectfully, the liberalism of Pope Francis. In St. Paul’s Letter to the Galatians, he wrote that he rebuked the first pope, St. Peter, “to his face because he clearly was wrong.” The issue was St. Peter’s capitulation to Jewish culture in his approach to the Gentiles. St. Paul moved swiftly to correct him for the sake of the early Church’s unity and doctrinal fidelity to Jesus Christ.

    Answering Protestants ^ | 25 September 2013 | Matthew Olson
    Let's take a look at 2 Peter. Verses 1-4 start off chapter 1 with a nice salutation, in which the grace of God is emphasized. Verses 5-11 inform us about the necessity of works, and they warn us against being "unfruitful," in reference to John 15:5-8, and other verses. The passage also reminds us that we were "purified" from our "former sins," most probably in reference to the regenerative effect of baptism. Verses 12-15 point out that the purpose of this Book is mostly just to remind us of important things -- we "already know them" -- not really to...

Since September 11 2001, America’s counter-terror officials have focussed on al-Qaida and home-grown radicalised American extremists, said the New York representative at a hearing of his committee. But, now, the terrorist threat to the United States is shifting. ‘As Iran moves closer to nuclear weapons and there is increasing concern over war between Iran and Israel, we must also focus on Iran's secret operatives

    As Peter means rock, the natural interpretation is that 'upon this rock' means upon thee. No other explanation would probably at the present day be attempted, but for the fact that the obvious meaning has been abused by Papists to the support of their theory. But we must not allow the abuse of a truth to turn us away from its use; nor must the convenience of religious controversy determine our interpretation of Scripture teaching. . . . Some hold that such a play upon words, "thou art Rock, and on this rock," is unworthy of our Lord. But there...

It will be the last of the executions related to the murders of 14-year-old Jennifer Ertman and 16-year-old Elizabeth Pena in 1993. Despite being the leader of the murderous gang, Cantu has lasted longer on death row than his co-defendants. Cantu has spent 17 years on death row; that is longer than either of his victims lived, and almost 7 years longer than the average stay on death row. Cantu was...

It has been a place of Christian worship since medieval times, but after months of excavations, Italian archaeologists have found frescoes and other evidence indicating that it was associated with St Peter in the seventh century.

ACORN online campaign director Nathan Henderson-James served notice in February that a propaganda effort was about to begin. “[T]here will be a fight over the narrative of ACORN’s demise,” he wrote to members of Townhouse, a discussion forum run by Matt Stoller, senior policy adviser to Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.). The other side wants “a narrative about the corruption of popular organizations and how they are...

    Catholic Biblical Apologetics Apologetics without apology! What does the Roman Catholic Church teach about ...? ... and why? This website surveys the origin and development of Roman Catholic Christianity from the period of the apostolic church, through the post-apostolic church and into the conciliar movement. Principal attention is paid to the biblical basis of both doctrine and dogma as well as the role of paradosis (i.e. handing on the truth) in the history of the Church. Particular attention is also paid to the hierarchical founding and succession of leadership throughout the centuries. This is a set of lecture notes...

    While a student at the Franciscan University of Steubenville, I had the privilege of having Dr. Scott Hahn as one of my Scripture professors. One thing he taught us is to look out “rumble strips” in the Bible. Imagine yourself cruising along, when suddenly you feel seismic vibrations in your car and hear that annoying muffled sound—you’re fast approaching a toll booth and the rumble strips are telling you to slow down and pay attention. So it is with passages in scripture which seem to disrupt the otherwise smooth narrative of salvation history. They seem to be randomly inserted in...

    I was asked by a reader of my Sunday Messages, “How do I love someone I don't like, and if I can't love them does it mean I do not love God?” I decided to tackle this question because there are many Christians who find it difficult, if not down right impossible, to love those they don't like. We are told by John that, “He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.” 1John 4:8 John goes on to write that it is impossible to love a God you cannot see, if you do not love...

    WAS PETER EVER AT IN ROME? As to the question whether Peter was ever at Rome, the Roman claim is that he suffered martyrdom there with Paul, after a Pontificate of twenty-five years. This would be from A.D. 41 to 66. But note:---- 1. In 44 he was imprisoned in Jerusalem (Acts 12). 2. In 52 he was at the Council of Jerusalem (Acts 15). 3. In 53 Paul joined him at Antioch (Galatians 2). 4. In 58 Paul wrote to the Romans, but does not mention Peter. In 1:11, he wants to impart special gifts; and in 1:15 he...
