  • Atheist professor desecrates stolen Host (now know it came from London Oratory & kept with condom)

    Priests at the London Oratory have called for prayers of reparation after a consecrated Host was allegedly stolen during High Mass and desecrated by an atheist professor in America. Several priests have celebrated Masses of reparation this week responding to a video posted on the internet of a young man taking the Host and later placing it next to a condom, claiming he was holding it "hostage" inside the prophylactic until the Pope changed his policy on contraception in light of Africa's Aids epidemic. An evening of reparation with Mass and Adoration with prayers, litanies and silent meditation is planned...

    The constant bad news from the liberal media corporations is very dangerous! I've been finding communist/Stalinist propaganda like this all over the net: Frankly the people ranting against "community" don't realize how they've benefited from it - it was non-profit inventions like the internet, computers, modern electricity, phones, x-rays, penicillin, radio waves, and lightbulbs (Göbel), that make life better today. (*Also* state funding of science, medicine, & university research!) "Conservatives" like to rant about how everything good came from greed, but it's just a huge lie: 1. The computer - “This came from pure scientific thought, and not at all...

    The assault on America's religious beliefs is not a new one. It is derived from a practice which Damon Linker, the author of Theocons: Secular America Under Siege referenced in his December 2007 article for The New Republic titled, "Atheism's Wrong Turn, Mindless argument found in godless books." He stated that far from being what modern journalists incorrectly label the "new atheism," the campaign to "act as missionaries for unbelief" is centuries old. Advertisement The American version of this mission to demonize religion is founded on a distorted interpretation of the establishment and free-exercise clauses of the First Amendment. Those...

    A science professor begins his school year with a lecture to the students, "Let me explain the problem science has with religion." The atheist professor of philosophy pauses before his class and then asks one of his new students to stand. "You're a Christian, aren't you, son?" "Yes sir," the student says. "So you believe in God?" "Absolutely." "Is God good?" "Sure! God's good." "Is God all-powerful? Can God do anything?" "Yes." "Are you good or evil?" "The Bible says I'm evil." The professor grins knowingly. "Aha! The Bible!" He considers for a moment. "Here's one for you. Let's say...

    Would a public school's zero-violence rule include Wiley Drake's call for prayer for the deaths of his opponents?Imprecations and implications. Orange County Pastor Wiley Drake was minding his own business when two enemies of God came after him last week. That's how secular humanists operate, you know -- they're just looking for ways to undercut people doing the Lord's work. At least, that's how Drake sees things. Faced with that, the 63-year-old Buena Park Baptist had limited options. First, he says, he tried to resolve things with them privately, as Matthew 18:15 directs. However, when Americans United for Separation...

    The Hype around "Evolutionism": Atheistic Materialism as a Religion By Elizabeth O'BrienOTTAWA, August 13, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - In a recent column, Ottawa Citizen columnist David Warren digs at the root of the hype surrounding "evolutionism," calling it, "evolution as a religious cosmology."In the article entitled, "The Limits of Atheism," Warren notes that whenever he writes about "evolution", he always receives a series of letters from indignant people who are "shocked and appalled that anyone would dream of challenging what they believe to be the consensus of 'qualified experts,'" respected members of the scientific community whom they believe are a "closed...

    Everything coming to your life you are attracting to yourself by the images you are holding in your mind. If you can see it in your mind, you can hold it in your hand. The Secret’s heartbeat is in the philosophical realm of Quantum Physics and Metaphysics. It’s a combination of mind over matter and pixie dust. God’s Law of Attraction says, “You can attract people, ideas and resources according to your most dominant thoughts.” As you renew your minds (Romans 12:2), establish your heart (Proverbs 23:7), transform your personal belief system (Romans 12:2), (make your thoughts congruent to kingdom...

    RIVERSIDE, Calif. – A research team, including UC Riverside biologists, has found experimental evidence that supports a controversial theory of genetic conflict in the reproduction of those animals that support their developing offspring through a placenta. The conflict has been likened to a “battle of the sexes” or an “arms race” at the molecular level between mothers and fathers. At stake: the fetus’s growth rate and how much that costs the nutrient-supplying mother. The new research supports the idea of a genetic “arms race” going on between a live-bearing mother and her offspring, assisted by the growth-promoting genes of the...

    Pope Benedict XVI said the debate raging in some countries — particularly the United States and his native Germany — between creationism and evolution was an “absurdity,” saying that evolution can coexist with faith. The pontiff, speaking as he was concluding his holiday in northern Italy, also said that while there is much scientific proof to support evolution, the theory could not exclude a role by God. “They are presented as alternatives that exclude each other,” the pope said. “This clash is an absurdity because on one hand there is much scientific proof in favor of evolution, which appears as...

    The Parent Company ^ | Kelly L. Segraves
    The first sightings of the ark in more modern times took place in 1856 when a group of English scientists climbed the mountain to search for the Ark. They asked a young Armenian boy, Haji Yearman, and his father to guide them up the mountain and show them the ark of Noah. Haji Yearman and his father did just that! This upset the scientists, because their object was to prove that the ark was not there. These scientists were atheists, and they tried to burn the ark. They said it would not burn, so they tried to destroy it, but...

    Canada Free Press ^ | Tuesday, July 17, 2007 | By Paul Albers
    ...The reaction of some Protestants also strikes me as odd since it seems to deny the very idea of there being a 'one true church'. I would have expected that every church would consider itself superior to all others in some way. Early Protestants felt strongly enough about their faith to practice it in the face of violent persecution, and their leaders endured many hardships to establish their doctrines. Any church today that doesn't have a conviction of its own rightness is not prepared to last through the generations. If you think it makes no difference to God if you...

    When you think of God, what comes to mind? A.W. Tozer once said, “We tend by a secret law of the soul to move toward our mental image of God.” If our ideas about God are coming from the wrong places, then our God will be too small. God’s Word, His Son, and creation give us ideas about the Creator. In Romans 1, Paul tells us that creation reveals God’s glory, but men have suppressed this knowledge. In her latest book, Time Peace, my friend and colleague Ellen Vaughn has come up with a wonderful way to blast our too-small...

    Toronto Sun ^ | 2007-05-03 | Father Thomas Rosica
    During the initial weeks of Lent 2007 in early March I avoided commenting on the sensational story of the alleged discovery of the tomb of Jesus in a Jerusalem neighbourhood. While it is true that tombs were found in Jerusalem's Talpiot section and the names of Jesus, Mary, Joseph and Matthew seem to have been engraved on the tombs, few people spoke of how common such names were during the first century. The media hype, though short lived, certainly put the theme of the resurrection front and centre of our Lenten and Easter journeys this year. James Cameron's documentary The...

    I need to desrcibe succinctly several different philosopies of the nature of man. I will also need to support this with citations. I believe that man is inheirently selfish, prone to promote self above all else. His natural bent will be self gratification devolving into ever lower levels of depravity. Without the tempering influence of the Holy Spirit, or the presence of the conscience there is no hope that man will attempt to do good. The good that he does attempt without these influences or after 'quenching the spirit' or 'searing the conscience' all his efforts result from the basic...

    Darwinism Refuted ^ | Harun Yahya
    Darwin put forward his claim that human beings and apes descended from a common ancestor in his book The Descent of Man, published in 1871. From that time until now, the followers of Darwin's path have tried to support this claim. But despite all the research that has been carried out, the claim of "human evolution" has not been backed up by any concrete scientific discovery, particularly in the fossil field. The man in the street is for the most part unaware of this fact, and thinks that the claim of human evolution is supported by a great deal of...

    Tele-evangelist sued over 'God can heal' claim Ed Pilkington Darlene Bishop, a tele-evangelist with a nationwide following, does not do things by half. When she and her husband Lawrence erected a statue of Jesus on the grounds of their mega church in Monroe, Ohio, they made it 62 feet high. No less gargantuan are her claims about the power of prayer to overcome illness. Through a series of sermons, books and a television show, Sisters, broadcast on religious satellite channels throughout the US and abroad, she preaches that God has the power to heal even the most deadly diseases, including...

    This time of year makes atheists especially cranky; O Little Town of Bethlehem, played in a shopping mall, does nothing to lift the spirits of an unbeliever. But even by seasonal standards, the letters attracted by my column last week on The God Delusion, by Richard Dawkins, demonstrate astonishing vehemence. They leave the impression that atheists are sensitive about their non belief and easily hurt by criticism. A friend of mine, who used to run a radio program about religion, noted recently that "militant atheists were our most intolerant and angry listeners." The atheists I've lately heard from bring such...

    The Inner Life of a Cell, an eight-minute animation created in NewTek LightWave 3D and Adobe After Effects for Harvard biology students, won’t draw the kind of box office crowds that more ferocious˜and furrier˜digital creations did last Christmas. But it will share a place along side them in SIGGRAPH's Electronic Theatre show, which will run for three days during the 33rd annual exhibition and conference in Boston next month. Created by XVIVO, a scientific animation company near Hartford, CT, the animation illustrates unseen molecular mechanisms and the ones they trigger, specifically how white blood cells sense and respond to their...

    Which One God? Comparing the Muslim and Christian conceptions of God. By Bat Yeor With the passing of time, hidden challenges, which for a long time had been growing unnoticed and unaddressed, can suddenly emerge into the full-blown light of current events with a force which seems quite overwhelming. Today the Western world, or Judeo-Christian civilization, shaken by jihadist terror, is being rudely awakened to theological realities blurred for decades. From clashes of civilizations to the jihad that is declaring to the planet its genocidal intentions, rational discourse concerning faith is becoming increasingly fraught. It is within this tumult and...

    There have been times recently when I have scarcely dared to open the newspaper for fear of discovering the latest enormity committed by our fellow human beings. You all know the feeling. At this rate, will the human race survive? Does it deserve to survive? Significantly, the first to express this feeling of disgust at humanity was God himself. The Book of Genesis (6:5–8) records: “When the Lord saw that man had done much evil on earth and that his thoughts and inclinations were always evil, he was sorry that he had made man on earth, and he was grieved...
