My Big Fat Unholy Wedding

05/19/2013 Comments (117)

Many people dream of the BIG WEDDING, the fairy tale ending with cake makers, dress designers, florists, jewelers, photographers and more for the low low price of a mortgage-like sum!!! But it might just be causing heartbreak, damaging society, and hurting people's faith.

When my wife and I first were engaged, we planned to get married a full two years later so we could save money for our BIG WEDDING. She wanted the big fancy catering hall and I wanted to give it to her. I was working and she was just graduating from college so I wanted to provide that for her.

I remember that it was the remark of a Jesuit who, when I told him that we weren't planning to be married for two years so we...READ MORE

8 Words The Media Made Meaningless

05/16/2013 Comments (19)

Clarity in communication is a highly coveted skill, especially in the media. You might think that verbal precision you might think would be a must in that field. But some words have me quoting the great Inigo Montoya who said, "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

Fetus - Fetus is the new f-bomb. The dictionary states that fetus means "an unborn or unhatched offspring of a mammal."

Simple enough, right?

But in the hands of the media, the term "fetus" can seemingly describe human beings from the moment of conception up to and including their kindergarten graduation. The media will sometimes use the term "fetus" if the mother doesn't want the...READ MORE

UK Pol: We Should Kill Disabled Children Like We Kill Deformed Lambs

05/14/2013 Comments (14)

You might recall that British politician, Colin Brewer, who last year said that disabled children should be killed to save taxpayer money. You might recall that at the time he apologized and stepped down in disgrace. But you probably didn't know that he was re-elected to his old seat this year. And he's at it again.

This time, he reportedly compared disabled children to deformed lambs that need to be culled. In an interview with none other than the Disability News Service, Councillor (yeah, they spell it that way) Brewer said that perhaps we should be treating disabled children like the runt of a litter of lambs which are often disposed of by smashing them against the wall.

"Psychic" Sylvia Browne Told Kidnap Victim's Mom Her Daughter Was Dead

05/08/2013 Comments (21)

“Psychic” Sylvia Browne, a former Catholic school teacher, reportedly told kidnap victim Amanda Berry’s mother on a television show that her daughter was dead. Amanda Berry’s mother died a year later likely thinking that her daughter was dead. Some might say she died of heart failure. But I’m pretty sure she died of a broken heart.

Of course, Berry escaped her captors this week along with two other women.

Sadly, this isn’t the first time Browne has terribly misled families of missing people.

Browne once reportedly told a mother that her missing daughter wasn’t dead at all but was actually working as a stripper in California. Later, police discovered the young girl had been killed in...READ MORE

8 People Planned Parenthood Hates the Most

05/03/2013 Comments (240)

Planned Parenthood is much in the news lately. And they can't be happy about it. The trial of House of Horrors abortionist Kermit Gosnell is putting killing babies in a bad light. And then Lila Rose and Live Action released a number of videos showing there's no real difference between Planned Parenthood and Gosnell. So I've put together a list of people I believe Planned Parenthood hates the most. Here they are:

Lila Rose - You can't overestimate the intensity of hatred that Planned Parenthood feels for Lila Rose. You see, representatives of Planned Parenthood never talk about abortion or babies in public. It's weird. Planned Parenthood aborts babies. It’s what they do. It’s their job.

Don't Look to the Scouts, Look to the Church

04/30/2013 Comments (30)

The executive committee of the Boy Scouts of America recently proposed revising its membership policy as a sort of compromise that might please everyone on the issue of homosexuals. Unfortunately, as is the case with most compromises, nobody seems pleased.

The Boy Scouts are an admirable organization with a commitment to helping boys become men. It's been amazingly successful. And it's that success that's made it a target. The Scouts are now facing legal challenges, media bullying, and some good ol' fashioned name calling from opponents of the ban on actively gay scout leaders.

Even President Barack Obama publicly urged the Scouts to admit homosexuals. "The Scouts is a great...READ MORE

Catholic College Students Protest Pro-Life Republican as Commencement Speaker

04/25/2013 Comments (24)

A number of students at St. John's University in New York are protesting the administration's invitation to Republican Peter King to speak at their commencement ceremony next month. King is pro-life and pro-marriage so the usual red flags are avoided. But a petition created by students which already has over 1,119 signatures alleges that King is unfit to speak at the commencement because he has made "discriminatory and offensive" remarks in the past.

The petition alleges that King's hearings on the dangers of Islamic radicalization amount to "trials against American-Muslims" which contradict the mission of the university to respect the rights and dignity of all. "It is clear that his...READ MORE

Why Did Gosnell Sever the Babies' Spinal Cord If They Were Already Dead?

04/23/2013 Comments (11)

The Philadelphia judge overseeing the Kermit Gosnell murder trial threw out three of the seven first-degree murder charges Gosnell faced for allegedly killing babies born alive at his abortion clinic.

One of the most horrific underlying reasons for the dismaying dismissal is that Gosnell's support staff lacked the medical expertise to know whether a baby was actually dead when Gosnell cut the baby's neck and spinal cord. So Gosnell is actually reaping the benefit of having hired high schoolers and others with absolutely no medical background as his medical support staff. Think about this, the judge is actually doubting the word of people who made their living killing children as to...READ MORE
