    Catholic League ^ | November 7, 2016 | Bill Donohue
    Bill Donohue comments on Hillary Clinton’s speech at an African American church in Philadelphia yesterday: Hillary Clinton took her campaign to Mount Airy Church of God in Christ yesterday afternoon. According to one report, “she urged parishioners of a black church in Philadelphia’s West Oak Lane neighborhood to choose ‘hope over fear’ and vote to send her to the White House.” Another story described how she stood “at a wooden lectern in the center of a purple-carpeted altar,” making her pitch to the faithful. There has been no complaint from the ACLU, Americans United for Separation of Church and State,...

Her campaign is a hoax of spartan appearances replayed to misrepresent her campaign. Hillary's schedule, her minimal appearances, is all for the headlines and the media willfully complies.

    [Clinton's very small Florida events] 'Rejoice in our sufferings': Hillary tells Florida congregation that setbacks deliver character and 'hope' – after a rough week that brought back her email scandal... Hillary Clinton joined worshippers at New Mt. Olive Baptist Church in Ft. Lauderdale on Sunday. She told worshippers that 'suffering' produces endurance, character, and hope. On Friday, the FBI dropped a bombshell when it revealed it was reviewing emails in connection with its earlier investigation of her. On Saturday night, Clinton attended a lively concert in Miami where Jennifer Lopez touted her candidacy in an an eye-popping show. Clinton is...

    A political action committee is looking to figure out whether it can safely use the Internet to support national political candidates, or whether the Federal Election Commission might seize the opportunity to impose the kind of regulations Democrats have been striving to attain. The request for an advisory opinion, filed on behalf of Citizen Super PAC, asks the FEC whether it would be permissible to email supporters of a candidate's campaign, or whether that would cross a line prohibiting coordination with candidates.

    WASHINGTON – The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has reached a settlement with a prominent atheist organization, agreeing to crack down churches and religious groups for infringements of its prohibition against ‘electioneering.’ As previously reported, the Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF), headquartered in Madison, Wisconsin, sued the IRS in 2012, asserting that many non-profit religious organizations have been “blatantly and deliberately flaunting … electioneering restrictions,” but the government has not enforced its rules pertaining to the matter. According to the IRS website, “Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are absolutely prohibited from directly or indirectly participating in, or...

    Rome Reports ^ | 4-15-2014
    The list is rather long: refugees and immigrants, those affected by violence, the economic crisis, unemployment, exploitation. They're just a few of topics the Pope will reflect on during the Way of the Cross on Good Friday, at Rome's Colosseum. The author of the meditations is the archbishop of Campobasso-Boiano, Giancarlo Bregantini. For the 14 meditations along the procession, the archbishop sought to highlight some of gravest sins and injustices that humanity carries out in the 21st Century. This list also includes topics like torture, or a justice system "drowning in a sea of bureaucracy.” But Archbishop Bregantini also addressed...

    Obama Asks African-American Churches for Help With Health Law ByLouise Radnofsky When President Barack Obama met with African-American religious leaders at the White House Monday in advance of the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, he had a request: He asked for their help in the final push to implement the federal health care law. The president hosted representatives of major African-American denominations in the Roosevelt Room, where they discussed “how civil rights and equality are closely tied to voting rights and closing the gap on education, unemployment, and access to health care,” White House said in a written...

    Vice President Joe Biden has a commandment for pastors, rabbis and nuns: He wants them to tell their flocks that enacting gun control is the moral thing to do. But another vote may have to wait until Congress wraps up work on an immigration overhaul. Biden met for two-and-a-half hours Monday with more than a dozen leaders from various faith communities – Christian, Jewish, Muslim and Sikh, to name a few. Both Biden and the faith leaders encouraged each other not to give up on what has been an arduous and thus far fruitless effort by Biden and President Barack...

    A woman was blocked from early voting near Austin, Texas, last week after wearing a T-shirt that said "Vote the Bible." A pro-family group called Texas Values said election workers told resisdent Kay Hill at the Taylor City Hall polling place in Williamson County her shirt was quote "offensive." She was told to turn the shirt inside out, go home and change, or cover up the words "Vote the Bible." Hill tried to disagree but was eventually forced to cover up her Bible message. Poll workers reportedly provided a jacket for her to wear over the shirt. "It's outrageous that...

    When Najoh Tita-Reid was a multicultural marketing director at Procter & Gamble Co. launching the "My Black Is Beautiful" marketing program, one of the realities she faced was that many of the women the effort was targeting were Hispanic as well as black. Today, as senior VP at GlobalHue Africanic, she sees a growing group of multicultural consumers who may not fully identify with any one box they're asked to check on the 2010 Census. Call it assimilated America, one where Spanglish may be the emerging national dialect and the U.S. population is in many ways multiethnic, making future...

    War On Terror: A decade after the USS Cole bombing, the Obama administration has halted prosecution of the al-Qaida operative believed to have planned the attack. What an insult to the sailors who lost their lives. As the Cole's crew lined up for chow in the ship's galley during a refueling stop in a Yemeni harbor on Oct. 12, 2000, al-Qaida suicide bombers used a small craft to detonate over 1,000 pounds of explosives, tear a 40-by-40-foot hole in the ship's side, slaughter 17 U.S. sailors and injure 39 more. It's bad enough that our rules of engagement dictated

    In Texas we have an expression: Saying it don’t make it so. The proof of the saying is all around us. Take for instance the latest video from that national treasure Naked Emperor News which shows then candidate Barack Obama pledging eight times to play out the health care reform debate on CSPAN, or MSNBC’s assurances that the Ft. Hood shooting spree was not motivated by religion. For a real case-study, however, spend

    A regulation barring New York City teachers from wearing political campaign buttons in public high schools does not violate their constitutional right to free speech, a federal judge has ruled. Rejecting the teachers' argument that high school students would "spontaneously understand" that the buttons were not part of the curriculum, Southern District Judge Lewis A. Kaplan held that the plaintiffs had "offered no admissible evidence to undermine" the city's argument that "displays of political partisanship by teachers in the schools" could "influence children and impinge on the rights of students to learn in an environment free of partisan political influence."...

    It took a while, but President Obama has finally found a church with a Bush-bashing pastor. Isn't it funny how "Separation of Church and State" is not evenly applied? It seems to only create moral outrage when conservatives do it for some strange, unknown reason. Speaking of "Bush", can you imagine the hissy-fit there would be if George W. Bush was sitting behind the podium listening to his pastor spewing partisan, political rhetoric that bashed Democrats? Watch this...

    As Democratic fears increase that health insurance reform could slip away with a crucial vote for a new U.S. senator in Massachusetts, President Obama on Sunday used a church pulpit at a Martin Luther King Day service to say the massive health bill would be a victory for "decency." Speaking to congregants at Vermont Avenue Baptist church in Washington, D.C., before heading north to rally for Attorney General Martha Coakley, Obama said the legislation will help more than 30 million Americans, "men women and children, mothers and fathers" to get insurance. "This will be a victory not for Democrats," Obama...

    As a Christian, it is your obligation to use the pulpit in America to defend Constitutional and political values. America was founded on Judeo Christian values, deferring to God, for the rights bestowed upon us. Those who have access to the pulpit must lead by example. Do not be shy about addressing the Islamic threat, the Marxist threat, the funding of abortion with parishioner money and any number of other issues that are wreaking havoc upon the lives of the folks who look to you for guidance.
