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

Talking and Praying with My Kids About Boston

04/19/2013 Comments (5)

I'm always seeing pieces in the media about what to tell your children about this or that. My default position has always been to tell my children nothing. Nothing at all. My kids are pretty dumb. I mean, they do o.k. in school but they're just not all that into the world. They like playing. They like throwing balls at each other's heads. They like monkey bars and baseballs. They like reading. Well, some of them do. The ten year old can't read while dribbling a basketball so given the fact that books don't bounce, her decision was pretty easy. So the Archbold kids have pretty much been ignoring the world since 1999.

It's been a good run. But now my oldest is thirteen and it's getting a...READ MORE

Retired Bishop Tells Catholics to Ignore Archbishop

04/15/2013 Comments (130)

A retired auxiliary bishop who reportedly has worn a mitre with a pink triangle and a rainbow ribbon on it has publicly gone against the words of Archbishop Allen Vigneron who recently said that those opposing the Church's teaching on gay marriage should not present themselves for Communion.

"Don't stop going to communion. You're okay," reportedly said Retired Auxiliary Bishop of Detroit Thomas Gumbleton.

Bishop Gumbleton has long been a contrarian on many things. He's publicly spoken at events and has been honored by organizations like New Ways Ministry, an organization dedicated to supporting lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Catholics. The USCCB Committee on Doctrine and the...READ MORE
