Big Abortion Isn't Having the Recession They Hoped For

Tuesday, July 27, 2010 3:40 AM Comments (10)

Awww! The poor things at Big Abortion seemed so thrilled the economy had taken a turn for the worse. According to the media, abortion clinics seemed thrilled to predict while many industries suffered from bleak economic indicator s, the abortion industry was riding high predicting that the recession would be a boom time for Big Abortion. But, let’s just say they’re not having the great recession they were hoping for.

In New Jersey, Governor Chris Christie reacted to the recession by rightly saying that the state is “broke” and can’t afford to fund abortion clinics like Planned Parenthood as it has in the past.

"The Jersey Sharia"

Monday, July 26, 2010 9:00 AM Comments (8)

Many good people from the Garden State do not care for the show “The Jersey Shore” because it makes people from Jersey look like, well, idiots.

Governor Christie even went so far as to complain this weekend about the show saying to Jake Tapper on ABC’s This Week that “reality series doesn’t represent ‘the real New Jersey.’”

If I were from NJ (I dodged that bullet when my NYC born parents chose Long Island over Jersey in the early ‘60s) I would be embarrassed too.  But not just from “The Jersey Shore.” There is someone making Jersey look even worse than JWoww and Snooki.  It is “The Jersey Sharia.”

Ten Reasons to See New Film "Sweet Baby Jesus."

Wednesday, July 21, 2010 11:49 PM Comments (9)

Let me see if I can entice you to go see a film that starts shooting in September called “Sweet Baby Jesus.” Here’s a quick little summary to whet your appetite from MTV :

The story is set in the ‘70s, in the town of Bethlehem… Maryland. One day, a new couple arrives in town: Joseph and his pregnant hippie wife Mary. Naturally, the town comes to think that the Second Coming of the savior is imminent.

Now if that wasn’t enough, here’s ten great reasons that’ll be sure to get you excited enough to drop ten dollars in Hollywood’s lap and some popcorn in your own:

It’s a comedy!!!

It’s from the director who brought you “Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey.”

Sharon Stone is starring as Mary’s...READ MORE

Secular Blasphemy

Tuesday, July 20, 2010 12:17 PM Comments (8)

Banning religious garb is all the rage these days. The secular order must be maintained at all times.

The banning of Burqas and full face veils has become so popular, in fact, that even some countries you wouldn’t expect are getting in to the act. Recently, another country has banned the niqab, the full Islamic veil that reveals only a woman’s eyes, at all universities. Has Islamophobia taken over? Not quite.

The country that is doing the banning? Syria.

Let the outrage commence! Oh yeah… Nevermind.

Let me go on record stating that while I do not care for the niqab, I do not support any government action to ban any kind of religious garb. Whether it is in France or Syria. That said, I...READ MORE

Is the Pope In Danger?

Monday, July 19, 2010 9:02 AM Comments (93)

I’ve been saying recently that Pope Benedict XVI is heading into enemy territory in “Post-Christian” England. Sadly, I may be more right than I imagined.

A member of British Parliament says he fears violence at an open air mass with Pope Benedict XVI after an Islamic publication called Muslims to attend the Mass to convert Catholics and “tell the Pope in no uncertain terms what Muslims think of his evil slanders against the last Prophet of God and his message.”

I think it’s the “in no uncertain terms” that’s making some a little nervous. Oh, the same publication also called the Pope “evil.”

The Islamic Standard writes:

“A change of venue gives Birmingham Muslims a chance to tell the Pope...READ MORE

There Are Witches In My Basement

Thursday, July 15, 2010 1:50 AM Comments (8)

I have long been an advocate of Bishops taking a harder line with leaders receiving communion who openly oppose Church teaching and advocate immoral policies.

Bishops have understandably been reticent to withhold communion, but now one Bishop has said enough is enough and has threatened to ban a local leader from communion unless he stops his advocacy of immoral and un-Catholic policies.

That is the good news.

The bad news is that the immoral practice invoked in this case is rounding up potential witches and wizards and locking them in his basement.

If Science Discovered the "Catholic Gene?"

Tuesday, July 13, 2010 2:00 AM Comments (18)

Would Catholics be better off in America today if scientists discovered a “Catholic gene?” Sadly, I think we would. Sadly, I think our culture promotes and celebrates victimhood and punishes morality. Sadly, I think the discovery of a papal mitre in our double helix could be a legal benefit to Catholics.

Rather than just a life-style choice that’s so un-21st century, Catholics could warrant legal protection similar to the laws that prohibit racial or gender discrimination. In the past if a Catholic pharmacist refused to sell an abortifacient contraceptive the Catholic pharmacist could lose their job.  But if Catholicism was discovered to be a genetic defect some of the secular new age...READ MORE

Anglo-Catholics Lose Their Escape Hatch—Good

Monday, July 12, 2010 12:56 AM Comments (15)

Over the weekend, the protestants of the Anglican communion acted like protestants.  Good.

This past weekend the General Synod of the Church of England rejected a compromise over women’s ordination aimed at maintaining the unity of the Church of England.  The compromise would have allowed for male Bishop’s only for those who reject female ordination and female bishops for the rest.  A two-tiered episcopacy intended to maintain some semblance of unity.

The acceptance of women Bishops in the Church of England is now a foregone conclusion.  Believe it or not, this is a good thing.

This closes for the good the escape hatch for those in the Church of England who maintain they are orthodox in...READ MORE
