  • Tricia Wittmann-Todd believes she knows what's best for "her" Catholic Parish

    As this article notes, even though Archbishop J. Peter Sartain has asked parishes throughout the Archdiocese of Seattle, Washington to circulate petitions in support of Referendum 74, the ballot measure to roll back Washington's recently passed same-sex "marriage" law, several parishes have refused to do so. One of these parishes, St. Mary's Parish in the Central Area, issued a statement through its "pastoral life coordinator" Tricia Wittmann-Todd. In her "weekly message," Ms. Wittmann-Todd writes: "Dear People of St Mary's, I am writing to share with you my decision regarding collection of signatures at St Mary's for Referendum 74, to repeal...
  • Rosen V. Romney is an orchestrated DISTRACTION

    Rosen V. Romney is an orchestrated DISTRACTION Bill O’Reilly & Charles Krauthammer were discussing the “Buffet Rule” which most everyone knows is the premise for Obama’s tax raising campaign on the wealthy. Republicans know that he is using this admittedly useless endeavor to foment class warfare. Krauthammer did a capable job explaining how 250 years worth of this additional tax would only amount to about one year of the current deficit spending. He explained that this is pure demagoguery (as we all know) and he added that “demagoguery works.” I will add that the reason why these trivial distractions work...
  • Hilary Rosen's War On Mothers, Fathers, Children And Heteros

    Hilary Rosen had an unusually hardened tone to her voice as she castigated Ann Romney on Anderson Cooper's CNN program the other night. What had this outspoken gay lady had against motherhood? She and her 3 year lesbian partner (at the time, as they are now split) have been outspoken for LGBTQ* rights, but also adopted twin girls, so you would think Ms. Rosen would have a handle on the sacrifice required to perform maternal duties. Yet, when I think of maternal instincts, neither she nor her former significant other seem to have that feminine, motherly quality required to raise...

    Forget the bread. The economy is in the toilet and unless you know someone who ponied up for a front row seat at an Obama fundraiser, it's staying there. Better together is the slogan, which means it only gets better if you stay together with The One. And I don't mean vote for him, I mean get the hook up. Just ask Warren Buffett, economic reform crusader, billionaire class warrior and inside dealer. But don't worry, we may not have bread, but we do have racial circuses, brought to you live with occasional commercial interruptions by every network and news...

    The Father of Lies is really whipping up his hordes lately, and this week we have heard the most despicable, lying words out of the mouths of these people under Satan’s sway who hate their own country and their fellow American citizens. We are still seeing the most ridiculous reaction to the killing in Florida of the black teenager, Trayvon Martin, by the neighborhood watchman, George Zimmerman, who claims to have been acting in self-defense. The disgusting overreaction by race-baiting black leaders is grossly irrational, because these people are calling for violence and working their followers up into a senseless...

    Illinois Review ^ | April 12, 2012 A.D. | John F. Di Leo
    On Easter Sunday, 2012, a series of car bombs exploded, killing at least 38 and wounding hundreds, as stained glass shattered and brick and mortar rained down upon the congregants – in and around the All Nations Christian Assembly Church and the ECWA Good News Church, in Kaduna, Nigeria. On Christmas Day, 2011, a similar bombing killed 44 (and injured hundreds more) at a Catholic church in Madalla, Nigeria. North of the Sahara, far too many bombings to count have rocked the churches of North Africa, particularly those of the ten million plus terrified Coptic Christians in Egypt, since the...

    President Obama has become an expert at making phony claims and exploiting bogus issues. On the energy front, who can forget his claim that we’d have no need for new oil production or exploration if we simply kept our tires properly inflated and got regular tune-ups? Now it’s fuel made from algae, a technology that is, at best, decades away and will probably be just as cost-ineffective as ethanol. The president’s phony issue du jour is the Republican Party’s alleged war on women. The issue’s roots were planted at the Jan. 7 Republican primary debate in New Hampshire. ABC News'...

    I must admit that for a few years, mainly during the Slick Willie era, I was an admirer of Coulter. But as the years passed she began to resemble a women seduced by public adulation. Perhaps she spent too much time at the New York cocktail parties. As most of us know, Ann is now the “Honorary Chairperson” of GoProud’s Advisory Council. Goproud is a national organization of “gay conservatives” and they claim that Coulter “has put them on the map”. Thanks Ann! You have really done so much to blur the line of distinction between the GOP & the...

    This is how we know that we LOVE the children of God: by LOVING God and carrying out his commands. 1 John 5:2 Last night was the first time I ever witnessed Phil Mote and his band of Merry Tricksters. How appropriate that the first thing the moderator did was to exaggerate the Warmist believers numbers at 95% when the hands looked closer to 80% which was low considering it was pretty obvious PSU was stuffing the room. Considering the Earth’s Magic Elixir show was at PSU it had to be a pretty disappointing turnout for the high priests of...

    All politics are the politics of the future. The one cause that we all champion, regardless of our political orientation, is the cause of the future. All that we fight for is the ability to shape the future. The fundamental political question is, "Do you believe things are getting better or worse?" Ruling parties tend to answer, "Better", opposition parties tend to answer, "Worse". The deeper answer to that question though lies in our perceptions of the past and the future. The left tends to view the past negatively and future shock positively. It wants change to disrupt the old...

    It is NOT over for conservatives if we have the will and the fortitude to use our God given brains instead of capitulating to the easy, thoughtless choice. This is just like watching the film "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" when by the end of the film, the people of the resistance give in to their urge to go to sleep. Are we those people - or do we have the courage to see this through to the end? Is America worth the fight? Those pseudo-journalists at Fox who MANUFACTURED and defrauded their viewers by sitting on facts about Mitt...

    A few days after September 11 I saw a quote from Gunter Grass on a Manhattan lamppost. In those dark days, the lampposts and walls that weren't covered in missing persons posters were decorated with the hysterical pamphleteering of the left urging us to blame ourselves for the attacks. The quote has long since been lost to memory, buried under smoke and ash, a green parrot perched on an empty staircase and crowds thronging on foot across the bridge. The quote itself, like the latest Grassian screed, does not matter. Grass, like Gandhi and King, was one of the favorite...

Conservatives may be in a BETTER position now than ever since there will not be a diluting of the conservative vote. Carl Cameron of FOX practically declared this over.

    La Salette Journey ^ | April 10, 2012 | Paul Melanson
    LifeSiteNews is reporting that the Cardinal Archbishop of Vienna, Christoph Schönborn , received a letter from the Vatican demanding action, after ten months of "discussion" between the Cardinal and the dissent group calling itself the "Austrian Priests' Initiative." The dissent group issued a manifesto last year demanding that the Church change her teachings on the ordination of women and married clergy and the reception of Communion by non-Catholics and divorced and remarried persons, and calling on their fellow clergy to disobey the Vatican. LifeSiteNews is reporting that, "the Cardinal himself has also publicly called for the Church to acquiesce to...
  • This Passover, Free Us From A Failed Jewish Leadership

    American Thinker ^ | April 23, 2011 | Stella Paul
    This week is Passover, the season of deliverance, and I'm praying for deliverance from America's failed Jewish leadership. As Jews confront the most dangerous era since World War II, whom are we stuck with for leaders? A clueless bunch of mini-Pharaohs, strutting around proclaiming their moral superiority, blissfully unaware the Jewish people's mortal enemies are pulling down their pants and laughing at them. Cataloguing their collective acts of evasion, cowardice, appeasement, and surrender is not for the faint of heart, but, luckily, I'm fortified by matzo balls and ready to rock. At the Passover Seder, Jews recite Dayenu, a prayer...

    Feral children deprived of language develop their own forms of communication and it may be that societies deprived of religion develop their own belief systems. Religion is at its core a means of explaining the world and it becomes absurdly easy for science to slip into the habits of religion. To break down religion to its essence is to say that there is a creative force which has given us life and that the proper way to live is to be in harmony with this creative force. Sinfulness consists of acts which disrupt the life-giving activity of the creative force...
