The Blessing Is Ours

Monday, August 09, 2010 10:46 PM Comments (6)

This is one of the most beautiful stories I’ve ever seen - the kind they’d make movies about if they made movies like this anymore.

A couple in Alabama were surprised to see a face they said looked familiar to them; a face they hadn’t seen for 15 years. Haylee Cain was five or six years old when Judson and Donna Emens last knew her from the Headstart program where Donna had worked back then. But all these years later they still recognized her. It was the same face they’d remembered. But now at 21 without a family unable to care for her Haylee was stuck in a nursing home.

The Emens went to visit the young woman and when they left they knew without talking about it that their lives were...READ MORE

We the People Means 9

Thursday, August 05, 2010 1:28 AM Comments (25)

Yesterday’s ruling by a California judge that overturned a ban on gay marriage is simply the latest outrage done by our black robed oligarchs in recent history. This chipping away at the moral foundations of America is not a sudden attack and in fact it hardly surprised anyone at all. There is no shortage of precedence. The game plan of secular progressives is clear. They know they can’t convince the people to do their will so they get judges to implement their will and override the people’s votes. In short, judges do what the people won’t. And boy have they been doing it.

I’m not even talking about those decisions of the past like Dred Scott or Buck v. Bell which allowed for the legal...READ MORE

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.

Atlantic City Press reports:

Legislative Democrats restored budget cuts of $7.5...READ MORE

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

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

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

Is Divorce Contagious?

Thursday, July 08, 2010 8:39 AM Comments (16)

A friend of mine worried to me many years ago that his wife was hanging out with a woman who’d recently been divorced. He said he believed that their friendship was having a negative effect on his marriage. At the time I didn’t see how that could be but it seems I was wrong. My friend’s wife left him within that year.

That’s purely anecdotal I know but now there are scientists now saying divorce leads to more divorce.

Scientific research coming out of Brown University studied the marriages of 12,000 people and discovered “divorce clusters” and have concluded that if a friend of yours divorces the chances of you getting a divorce increase by 75 percent.

The researchers even concluded...READ MORE
