Are The Religious More Tolerant Than Social Scientists?

-By Warner Todd Huston

A new book by science writer Nicholas Wade seeks to explore the possible connection between evolution and race but in a recent op ed the author points out that in some ways religious people have become more tolerant than those social scientists who think of themselves as being warriors against racism and ignorance.

The book, A Troublesome Inheritance: Genes, Race and Human History, is being attacked by those Ivory Tower profs in the social sciences. But with this attack they have proven themselves to have essentially become anti-intellectual and anti-science as the genome project expands humanity’s knowledge about the building blocks of our biology.

In a June 22 Wall Street Journal op ed, Mr. Wade seeks to expose the ignoramuses in the so-called social sciences.

Pope Francis: The Catholics’ Commie Pope Problem is Growing

With his third major address infused with socialist buzzwords, it seems to be official. Pope Francis is the first Commie Pope. And this is a big problem for the Catholic Church and they’d better get a handle on it.

First of all it is disgusting that any member of the cloth would advocate for communism like this Pope seems to be doing. Communism and its sister ideologies socialism and Nazism are responsible for the deaths of more humans than anything man has ever done. Yes, even more than religion–In fact, more than all religions combined. If you are in favor of communism/socialism/Naziism (and there is no material difference between them), then you are an apologist for mass murder. It really is just that simple.

Now, the Catholic Church has enough of a bad history instigating mass murder, so glomming onto communism is not a good PR move.

Francis: Our Commie Pope

Last year Pope Francis stirred passions on both sides of the political aisle with a major statement that seemed to show that he was an anti-capitalist commie. And while for weeks afterward he and his spokesmen denied the characterization of a commie pope, we may now have yet another example of Pope Francis going red with a new message on the Papal Twitter feed.

On April 28, the Papal Twitter account had this message: “Inequality is the root of social evil.”

This is pure communist pap. This buzzword of “inequality” is free of both substance and truth.

Pope Francis Tells Rush Limbaugh ‘I Am Not a Marxist’

-By Warner Todd Huston

Three days ago I discussed why Time magazine picked Catholic Pope Francis as its “man of the year.” We noted that the only reason the magazine would have picked this months-old Pope for its cover is because of his recent Marxist-styled attack on capitalism. Now the Pope has come out to assure his flock and warn commentators like Rush Limbaugh that he isn’t a Marxist.

Last week conservative talker Rush Limbaugh lambasted the Pope’s address from two weeks ago saying that his attack on capitalism was “pure Marxism.” For much of last week the media here and abroad went gaga over Rush’s “attack” on the Pope.

Now the Pope himself is trying to ally fears that he is a Marxist, telling Limbaugh and other critics that he isn’t one.

During an interview with the Italian newspaper La Stampa, the Pope said that Marxism is wrong.

Why Did Liberal Time Magazine Pick Pope Francis as ‘Person of the Year’?

-By Warner Todd Huston

Reliably left-wing Time magazine recently picked the head of the Catholic Church, Pope Francis, as its “person of the year” for 2013. This choice is odd for several reasons–after all the Pope stands against most of Time’s leftist ideals–but maybe the Pope’s recent Marxist-styled attack on capitalism explains the choice?

But let’s find a minute to note how uncomfortable the leftist magazine must have been with its choice. After all, Pope Francis has not yet done anything in office except become noted for his Marxist-like attack on capitalism.

It is clear that Time only picked Francis because of that attack on the single best system ever invented by man. After all, if one looks at this Pope’s other positions one finds the antithesis of Time’s left-wing principles.

Obama Disrepecting The Vatican, Catholics, Jews, Everyone But Muslims

First Obama pushes a deal with Iran that does nothing to prevent that Muslim nation from getting the bomb putting Israel in mortal danger, before that he sided with al Qaeda and other Muslim groups in Syria despite that they are murdering Christians just for being Christians, and now Obama disses Catholics by moving the US embassy to the Vatican out of the Vatican and miles away next to the Italian embassy in Rome.

In only a few day’s time, Obama has turned his back on Jews and Catholics both while giving Muslims all the help they need to become an even greater danger to the whole world. Who’s side is this guy on, anyway?

Obama has offended the Vatican and Catholics everywhere with his unilateral decision to move the embassy out of the Holy See, claiming he did so because of “security” reasons.

Security is a pretty weak reason, of course. The embassy to the Vatican is no more safe in Rome than it is in the Vatican itself.

Ohio Court Upholds Firing of School Teacher Fired for Christian Religious Views

The Ohio Supreme Court upheld the 2011 firing of school teacher John Freshwater saying that his insistence in keeping Christian symbols in his classroom somehow violated the U.S. Constitution.

The story began all the way back in 2008 when Ohio’s Mount Vernon City Schools began the process of firing science teacher Freshwater because he had religious symbols like his personal Bible in the classroom.

The school system maintained that he was “violating” the Constitution by having Christian symbols in his public school classroom.

There was also a false report that he used heated tools to “brand” crosses onto the arms of some students. This charge was dropped years later.

Eventually the school system fired the teacher because he refused to remove the religious symbols including his personal Bible which he kept on his desk.

Now the Ohio Supreme Court is upholding that firing.

Geraldo Rivera Loses Speaking Gig Over Semi-Nude Selfie

Back in July, Fox News personality Geraldo Rivera posted a nearly nude photo of himself (a selfie, as the kids call it) on Twitter and reaped a whirlwind of condemnation. He may have thought it was behind him until this month when he learned that he lost a speaking engagement at a Catholic University over the image.

Geraldo was scheduled to speak at an upcoming October panel at Duquesne University to talk about the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s assassination.

Duquesne is a Catholic institution and found it wasn’t amused at the 70-year-old’s lack of modesty by posting a nearly nude photo of himself for all to see.

In a statement about the withdrawal of the invitation, Duquesne’s spokeswoman Bridget Fare said:

Mysterious ‘Angel’ Priest From Missouri Car Crash Revealed

August 14, 2013 | Filed Under Bible, Catholicism, Christianity, Family, Missouri, Religion, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

On August 4 a nearly fatal car crash occurred on a Missouri highway. The driver was feared near death and called for a priest to minister to her. Suddenly a Catholic priest appeared seemingly out of nowhere, attended to her, and then mysteriously disappeared causing many to wonder just who he was and how he just vanished like that. Well, now that mystery priest has been identified.

It may have been miraculous that Father Patrick Dowling from the Diocese of Jefferson County just happened to be right where he was needed most but it wasn’t quite the sort of “miracle” that some were assuming of his appearance.

In the aftermath of the car accident in which Katie Lentz was hit head-on by a drunk driver, rescue workers feared that they wouldn’t be able to get the woman out of her mangled car in time to save her life. A priest was needed to anoint her, they felt. If she passed in the wreck, she wanted to be blessed.

Just at the right time came Father Dowling. He ministered to the stricken woman and then, when he was done, he slipped away not to be seen again.

Chicago’s Father Pfleger: Trayvon Martin ‘Just Like’ Civil Rights Icon Emmett Till

Chicago’s activist Catholic Priest, Father Michael Pfleger, took the occasion of the George Zimmerman trial to race to the streets to stir his flock, preparing them for “civil disobedience,” and leading a rally to decry the not guilty verdict reached in the Florida case. Pfleger also claimed that teen Trayvon Martin is somehow just like civil rights icon Emmett Till.

Pfleger, a long-time left-wing activist in the city, took to the streets of Chicago holding a sign that read “I Am Trayvon Martin,” and announced to the media that on Sunday he was going to urge his flock of mostly African Americans at St. Sabina Church to “civil disobedience.”

Before the verdict was announced on July 13, Pfleger took to his Facebook page and in an all caps post asked God for a conviction of Zimmerman.

Wikipedia’s Top Hits: In America, George W. Bush’s Entry Most Controversial

A new study of the most controversial entries on Wikipedia, the crowd sourced, online encyclopedia, shows that in the English language entry the most fought over is the biography of George W. Bush.

The authors of The most controversial topics in Wikipedia, a study that looked at the most controversial pages by language group, finds some topics stir passions in all cultures–such as matters of religion, God, Jesus, and Muhammad–while others are dependent on more localized matters–such as ages old ethnic conflicts and local politics.

The study looked at the pages that are fought over the most by constant behind the scenes editing by users. The most debated pages undergo what the study terms “edit wars,” which is the back and forth of “reverts,” the action of undoing what another editor added. The goal of the study was to find what subjects were most controversial by language, but also to see what topics straddled cultures.

Maybe unsurprisingly, in the English language Wiki, which is visited most heavily in the United States, the bio of George W. Bush still elicits hot controversy. Bush’s entry appears at the very top among the top ten most edited pages in English. Anarchism comes in second and Muhammad third.

On March 15 the good folks of the National Bloggers Club hosted a private visit by Senator Rick Santorum at this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).

The subject of most of his comments as well as the questions asked centered around the new Pope and the Catholic Church. One of his replies was particularly interesting and it wasn’t just interesting because it was an answer to a question I asked the Senator myself.

I asked about how the media is and/or will treat the Catholic Church on the issue of “reform” as the new Pope takes charge of his world-wide flock. Santorum noted that the Church can’t change its spots just because the culture does. The Church is supposed to be teaching truth, not bending constantly to cultural changes.

NBC Was Disappointed That Asian Cardinal Was ‘No Reformer’

-By Warner Todd Huston

Catching up on how the media treated the days before Pope Francis became the new leader of the Catholic Church, as the Vatican hosted its conclave, NBC looked into the work of Asian Cardinal Luis Antonio “Chito” Tagle–a possiblePapal candidate–and came to the sad conclusion that he was just as traditional as any other cardinal. As NBC ruefully noted, Tagle is “no reformer.”

NBC started out on a hopeful note: “On the face of it Philippine Cardinal Luis Antonio ‘Chito’ Tagle has a lot going for him as a contender for pope. He’s young: At 55, the second youngest of the cardinals. He sings and preaches on television, and has 120,000 followers on Facebook.”

He was hip, young, and he’s into technology. And apparently, simply because he’s Asian, NBC wondered if he would toe a liberal line and be one who would institute “social reform” if he became Pope.

But NBC went on to note that Cardinal Tagle is as staunchly against contraceptives as any other traditional cardinal, a stance that is a chief tenet of the Church.

The Next Attack on Pope Francis

March 20, 2013 | Filed Under Catholicism, Christianity, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, Journalism, Liberals, Media, Media Bias, Newspapers, Progressives, Religion, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

The Old Media has been looking for ways to attack the new Pope, Francis I, since he was introduced to the world. Initially, the media attempted the needle the new Pontiff into “reforming” the Church or face failure, but this week it seems that there is a new line of attack: he is an advocate for dictators.

Of course, by “reform,” the Old Media means that they want the new Pope to change Church doctrine on such things as ordination of women, support of gay marriage, and other liberal shibboleths. But discussion of what the Old Media thinks is “reform” is yesterday’s snipe.

This week the Pope is being portrayed as a supporter of the so-called “Dirty War” waged between political factions in Argentina and The New York Times is the chief proponent of the idea that Pope Francis faces “entanglements” in that War.

In a piece headlined, “Starting a Papacy, Amid Echoes of a ‘Dirty War’,” the Times associates Pope Francis with several priests who unfortunately supported government officials guilty of oppression and violations of civil liberties in the Dirty War and notes he has “never apologized” for the fact that the Argentine Church never came out vociferously against the military Junta between 1976 and 1983.

Bashing Benedict: Networks Slam Retiring Pope

March 1, 2013 | Filed Under ABC, Bible, Catholicism, CBS, Christianity, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, Journalism, Liberals, Media, Media Bias, NBC, Progressives, Religion, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

A new study by the Culture and Media Institute of Pope Benedict’s retirement reveals constant attacks, ridicule, and repeated allusions to scandals as ABC, CBS, and NBC reported on Benedict’s final days.

The survey reveals that the Catholic Church was repeatedly deemed “troubled,” the Church was attacked for not “modernizing,” the real-world Church was constantly compared to the fictitious world of novelist Dan Brown and his Da Vinci Code series of books, and late night TV hosts turned Benedict into a butt of jokes.

On February 11, Pope Benedict announced his retirement due to ill health setting off the big three networks into attack mode.

“From Benedict’s Feb. 11 resignation through the evening of Feb. 27, the day before it took effect, the networks referred to the Catholic Church as a troubled institution 122 times and aired the word ‘scandal’ 87 times in 112 reports. Anchors and reporters suggested that the Church must modernize (32 times) and pressed for change in issues regarding women (7 times) and gays (13 times). At times, they trivialized the first resignation of a Pope since the 1500s as ‘worthy of a Dan Brown novel’ (ABC’s Harris again.) and sensationalized it by entertaining theories about other reasons Benedict might be stepping down.”

On the lighter side, over the two-week period, network morning shows continuously aired jokes about Benedict staged by late night comedy shows such as Jimmy Fallon, David Letterman and Conan O’Brien.

MSNBC: Why Not Let Sonia Sotomayor Become The Next Pope?

On a February 17 broadcast of MSNBC Live, panelist Chris Smith thought it would be a great idea to have U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonya Sotomayor replace retiring Pope Benedict as head of the Catholic Church.

Smith, a contributing editor of New York magazine, thought Sotomayor would offer a “trifecta” of liberal attributes.

“Here’s a trifecta: Latin, female, American. It would do a lot of good. I mean it’s ridiculous, we’re talking about a religion here where women can’t even become priests… but it would speak to some of the issues about how the Church needs to open itself up,” Smith said.

Smith also offered another reason that Sotomayor would be a great Pope. It is because she is a Puerto Rican who lived in the Bronx and is “someone who lived in the real world.” Smith felt this “real world” life is something that “would be good for whoever is Pope.”

Smith was the only one that offered a “fantasy pick” for the new Pope. The other panelists picked current cardinals.

Aussie Paper: Pope Quit Over Sex Abuse Scandals?

-By Warner Todd Huston

In yet another effort at reading tealeaves, a newspaper in Australia claimed that Pope Benedict “may” have stepped down because of the sex abuse scandals that have engulfed the Catholic Church for decades.

Without any actual proof, the Herald Sun of Melbourne has decided on the word of one Priest that “one of the reasons” the Pope announced his pending resignation as leader of his Church is because of the “widespread sexual abuse within the Catholic Church” that has beset the Church.

Father Max Vodola imagines that Pope Benedict might be feeling taxed by addressing the sex scandals he has confronted since becoming Pope.

Father Vodola told the Herald Sun, “trying to correct the errors that went as far back as 50 years would be an immense shame and embarrassment, and would require the right protocols in place to deal with it.”

HuffPo Scolds Dems for ‘Caving’ On Reinsertion of God and Jerusalem Into Platform

It might appear odd, but Huffington Post seems to be scolding the Democrats for having “caved in” to pro-religion and pro-Israel forces in the Democrat Party for succeeding in having God and Jerusalem put back into the Democrat Party platform after they were removed earlier today.

Clearly proving that there is a great division in the Democrat Party over these two issues, Huffington Post’s headline screamed that the Democrats have become “The Pushover Party” now that God and Jerusalem have been reinserted into the party platform.

What is also clear is that Huffington Post is siding against God and Israel and saying that real Democrats don’t cave to Christians and Jews.

The day has not been good for the Democrat Party. After the Democrats were embarrassed all during the morning and afternoon of Sept. 5 over the unsettling deletions of God and Jerusalem from their platform, a voice vote was called on the floor of the convention to have God reinserted and also to have it reaffirmed that Jerusalem is the rightful capital of Israel.

Democrats Booed Re-Insertion of God, Affirmation of Israel’s Capital in Platform

Earlier in the day on Wednesday, the Democrat Party suffered two embarrassments over its platform by the elimination both God and the capital of Israel from the document. Worse, when a move was made to reinsert them into the guiding positions of the party, the floor erupted in loud boos.

Earlier in the day news leaked out that the Democrat Party platform saw the word “God” removed from it. Hot on the heels of that news it was discovered that anti-Israel activists had also succeeded in removing the affirmation that Jerusalem is the rightful capital of the nation of Israel.

As the chattering classes in the news media wrangled over these deletions, the Democrat Party began to feel pressure to fix this sleight to God and our biggest Mid East ally, Israel.

The pressure built to the point where a move was made to put these items back into the platform. And so, on a voice vote from the podium at the convention, the changes were introduced to loud booing from the floor.

It was worse than a simple booing of support for Israel and God, though. The voice vote procedure was clearly rigged by the chair of the convention, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, and the voice of the convention’s delegates was ignored.

With the two important issues removed from the platform, the Party needed to bring their reinsertion to a floor vote. Mayor Villaraigosa had the resolution to reinsert the words read to the convention and then called for a floor vote to approve it. The rules state that two thirds of the floor needed to agree to the change for it to be approved.

Villaraigosa’s first attempt brought as many voices saying they didn’t want God and Jerusalem back in the platform as those that did.

Godless Illinois Democrat Gets Mad Being Asked Why God Was Dropped from Dem Platform

-By Warner Todd Huston

One of the most vile members of the Senate is Dick “Turban” Durbin and he once again proved his ignorance and hatemongering on Fox News when asked why the Democrats removed God from their platform.

On Sept. 4, Durbin appeared on Fox with Bret Baier when the discussion turned to the removal of the word “God” from the Democrat Party platform. Now, correspondent Baier drew no conclusions about the removal of God from the platform. He just asked, straight away and without commentary, why did the Democrats remove God from the platform.

Instead of answering the question, this scumbag Durbin went on a wild rant on how Baier and “your network” are calling the Democrats Godless.

But, again, Baier drew no conclusions. He just asked the question.

This is how the biggest jerk next to the liar Harry Reid in the Senate replied to the simple question:

Now, the fact is, even though Bret Baier did not call names like idiot Durbin did, the fact is Democrats do hate religion. They hate God, they hate Christianity, they hate everything to do with our nation’s traditional creeds. The Democrats removed God from their platform because they are a godless, un-American group. Dick Turbin knows this fact and his defensive, explosive, over-the-top reaction was proof positive that he knows that his party is anti-Christianity.

If you are a Christian and a Democrat, one wonders how you square that circle?

Why Is Islam at War With the West?

July 16, 2012 | Filed Under Catholicism, Christianity, Gary Krasner, Islam, Koran, Religion | Comments Off

-By Gary Krasner

Indeed, why are there so many acts of terrorism by Muslims today? If there can be one central reason, I think it was that Judeo-Christianity was better able to reform and conform to political modernity of secular government and freedom of conscience, based on a less specific code of conduct than that of Islam.

The Catholic Church, for example, does not require Catholics to cite specific tenets to do or not do something. Indeed, the Church itself has stated in doctrine—-which is „tenets‰—-that it doesn’t have to specifically oppose or endorse something in order for a Catholic to oppose or endorse that something—-if it’s based upon his Moral Conscience. There is nothing in Catholic doctrine, for example, for a Catholic to conclude that it‚s wrong to kick a dog or surf the internet. Or he is being a good Christian by kicking a dog or surfing the internet. Either way, no specific doctrine is required.

As instructed in Catholic Doctrine, in Dignitas Humanae, Pope Paul VI wrote in 1965: “It is through his conscience that man sees and recognizes the demands of divine law. He is bound to follow this conscience faithfully in all his activity so that he may come to God, who is his last end.” More recently, Pope John Paul II wrote on October 11, 1992: “The Catechism of the Catholic Church, which I approved June 25th last and the publication of which I today order by virtue of my Apostolic Authority, is a statement of the Church‚s faith and of catholic doctrine, attested to or illumined by Sacred Scripture, the Apostolic Tradition and the Church‚s Magisterium. I declare it to be A SURE NORM FOR TEACHING THE FAITH, and thus a valid and legitimate instrument for ecclesial communion.” [On matters of conscience, refer to CCC 1776, 1777 & 1782]

Andy Andrews, the author of ‘How Do You Kill 11 Million People: Why the Truth Matters More Than You Think’ was a guest on the Mike Huckabee show recently. As expected Andrews was asked to explain the title of his book and to give a succinct summary of the answer to the question his title imposed.

Like many people Andrews spent years pondering the question of why and just how 11 million people would become so docile as to actually look complicit in the planning and execution of their own deaths. Why would so many line up to be hauled away by the Nazis in crowded boxcars, without putting up great resistance or a fight to save their own lives.

Andrews uses no deep philosophical construct to answer the question. He offers the simplest answer and under any level of reasonable scrutiny we suddenly know he has hit the nail squarely on the head. His answer in all of its glorious simplicity is, “They were lied to.”

Responsible Militancy Missing in Christian Leaders!

March 18, 2012 | Filed Under Catholicism, Christianity, Dr. Don Boys, PCism, Religion, Society/Culture, Western Civilization | Comments Off

-By Don Boys, Ph.D.

If anyone is expected to be principled in their leadership, it is Christian leaders; however, most modern leaders, even Evangelical/Fundamental leaders seem to be limp-wristed, wimpy, self-seeking office holders. Yes, there are a few exceptions as expressed by a few hundred pastors who will not permit the IRS to influence what they preach to their flock. Those pastors made a vow to always teach, preach, and write the truth whatever the results. It seems they took their vows seriously. Most do not.

I am impressed with most Catholic leaders who contend that this administration will never succeed in making them change their church doctrine and convictions to submit to government authority. We will see if they mean “never.” Will Catholics really close churches, colleges, and hospitals in obedience to principle or become pragmatic and give in “just once.”

Most preachers, even in my Evangelical/Fundamentalist crowd, have had their spines removed upon graduation from seminary or at their ordination. They often seem to line up with such “loosey-goosey” evangelical leaders as Jim Wallis, Rick Warren, Bill Hybels, and the Christianity Today crowd. They are more interested in appearing to be gentlemen than in being obedient to God. They appear to be more interested in not offending the “wolf” (whom they are supposed to protect against) than in protecting the sheep.

The one thing that Presidents from Washington through to modern times have held in common was the belief that religion was a central component of the life of the republic.

Calvin Coolidge, President from 1923 to 1929, said “Our government rests upon religion. It is from that source that we derive our reverence for truth and justice, for equality and liberality, and for the rights of mankind. Unless the people believe in these principles they cannot believe in our government. There are only two main theories of government in our world. One rests on righteousness and the other on force. One appeals to reason, and the other appeals to the sword. One is exemplified in the republic; the other is represented by despotism.”

Ronald Reagan echoed this view saying, “Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant and the rule of law under God is acknowledged.”

Obama: Violating Much More than Conscience

-By Rev Michael Bresciani

In his latest show Gov. Mike Huckabee was seen interviewing a Catholic priest, as they spoke, the Governor said that since the Catholics have come under attack “we are all Catholics.” The audience accepted what he said and while they knew the Governor was not referring to some giant ecumenical switch to Catholicism he was stating the obvious. When the government suspends or denies first amendment principles to the church, be it Protestant or Catholic, we all tend to close ranks.

In what is known in theological circles as the antediluvian period (before the flood) men were guided not by the Mosaic Law or by the New Testament but only by their conscience. That particular dispensation failed miserably and it is actually what precipitated the flood. Man’s conscience failed then (Ge 6: 5) and it has not improved at all since. According to scripture that is why God had to reveal what sin and error actually were according to his laws. When that was known he provided grace; because no one could keep all the laws. At no time did God ever allow man to return to the age of conscience, it would have been self defeating.

Nothing has changed because God, unlike man, never goes backwards. Using only conscience to be our guide is as disastrous today as it was in the ancient world. It is what allows us to lump all religions together and pick and choose one or the other that seems to soothe our conscience. In the process we tend to pick the religions that crush personal responsibility the most. We choose systems where external actions, liturgies, symbolism and religious practice become a substitute for actually connecting to, and obeying, the living word of the Living God. The result is that the conscience actually comes into conflict with God’s revealed word and it is the word that is offended, disregarded and eventually abandoned.

What Everyone is Missing About Obama’s Attack on Catholics!

February 24, 2012 | Filed Under Abortion, Anti-Americanism, Catholicism, Dr. Don Boys, PCism, Religion, Society/Culture | Comments Off

-By Don Boys, Ph.D.

Why would Obama, who wants to be re-elected in 2012, do something as stupid as taunting and attacking the powerful Roman Catholic Church with its 70 million U.S. members? Is he dumb as a box of rocks or is he such an ideologue that his radical, God-hating agenda is more important than a second term?

Obama threw down the gauntlet at the feet of Catholic leaders when he decided that all Catholic institutions must cover contraception and abortion in their insurance coverage of employees. Catholic leaders got their knickers in a knot and lost control as they went ballistic.

Catholics simply cannot cave on this issue or they will commit institutional suicide. How can a religious organization teach, preach, and write against these issues and yet provide those services? They cannot if it is a conviction, but they can if it is only a convenience. For Catholic leaders to say that they will fight in the courts and the streets but after losing those battles, they may “be forced to capitulate” is insanity. If they have convictions, then they will not, under any conditions, obey that law. Period.

Think So? Think Again!

February 19, 2012 | Filed Under Abortion, Catholicism, Christianity, Frank Salvato | Comments Off

-By Frank Hyland

In issuing its latest controversial decree from on high — this one on contraception — the Obamanation has clearly, publicly, and intentionally crossed a line. When it tells Roman Catholic institutions that they must provide contraceptives, what they are really telling Roman Catholics is that they must change their beliefs that the church has held for centuries. Alternatively, the church can continue to believe that contraception is wrong, but provide the products and processes anyway, remaking itself into the same kind of two-faced entity exemplified by the Obamanation.

Understand, please, that the issue here is not contraception; nor is it the beliefs of the Roman Catholic Church. It is critical to see through the hyperbolic fog surrounding this and get to the essence: the Obamanation feels comfortable in decreeing to We The People what we can and must believe regardless of the issue of the day. Whether you are a practicing, devout Roman Catholic or an Atheist, whether you are pro-life or pro-choice, the Executive Branch of your U.S. Federal Government has entered onto a slope that is slippery beyond what you can imagine. Why? Because the legal system in this country is based in large part on the principle of “precedent.” That is, if the Obamanation assault on what you believe or don’t believe is not put out of its misery in its infancy, it will be used to extend the number and nature of White House decrees with increasing frequency.
