Pro-Choice Episcopal Bishop Says Climate Denial is a Moral Issue

03/31/2015 Comments (43)

Katharine Jefferts Schori, presiding bishop of the Episcopal church, who is pro-choice on the issue of life, says climate change denial is a "moral issue."

“Episcopalians understand the life of the mind is a gift of God and to deny the best of current knowledge is not using the gifts God has given you,” she reportedly said. “In that sense, yes, it could be understood as a moral issue.”

She continued by saying, “I think it is a very blind position. I think it is a refusal to use the best of human knowledge, which is ultimately a gift of God.”

Wow. Seems like a hard line, huh? Well Jefferts Schori takes a rather more...nuanced view on other issues such as life.

"We say it is a moral...READ MORE

Dear Doug Kmiec at al, Abortion is Not a Poverty Issue

03/26/2015 Comments (12)

You might recall Catholic law professor Doug Kmiec's political conversion in which he surprised many by going from Mitt Romney's presidential campaign to supporting Barack Obama. He later went on to be Obama's ambassador to Malta and later ran for Congress, saying he wanted to be Hillary Clinton's vice presidential pick.

When asked about his political turnaround considering the issue of abortion, Kmiec essentially argued that Obama was actually more pro-life than many Republicans because he supported poverty programs. Specifically, he said:

The Democrats had a brilliant strategy on abortion this year: Don't play the futile court speculation game. Instead, Obama's team promoted life in...READ MORE

Making Abortion Clinics Safer is Unsafe. What?!

03/19/2015 Comments (27)

A bill to increase state regulations of abortion clinics is causing all sorts of crazy testimony from those opposing the bill at the state capitol in Nebraska.

The Judiciary Committee heard testimony on a bill that would require abortion clinics be defined as ambulatory surgical centers.

As Greg Schleppenbach of the Nebraska Catholic Conference says, abortion clinics must be equipped for emergencies. Makes sense, right? Oh but wait, the Nebraska Catholic Conference is anti-abortion so that's why they're actually supporting these measures, right? That's what's often said. But the two don't necessarily follow. In fact, it's quite logical that a group such as the Nebraska Catholic Conference...READ MORE

Sooo, Would Pro-Life Abortionists Be OK?

03/11/2015 Comments (62)

Congress is being urged to considering overturning Washington D.C. legislation that could force religious and pro-life employers in our nation's capital to operate their businesses in ways counter to their beliefs.

The Reproductive Health Non-Discrimination Act (RHNDA), says it would protect people from discrimination against from an employer because of their reproductive health choices.

Here's the wording:

To amend the Human Rights Act of 1977 to ensure that individuals are protected from  10 discrimination by an employer, employment agency, or labor organization, based on an individual’s or dependent’s reproductive health decisions.

So, this bill, in short, is an attack on...READ MORE

The New Guidelines for American Christians. 21st Century Edition

03/04/2015 Comments (90)

Being a Christian in American is not as easy as it used to be. And it's becoming increasingly clear that "Christian" aren't understanding this entirely so here's a new set of guidelines to help clarify any problems you might encounter.

One must only look at the recent cases such as the fire chief Kelvin Cochran who was fired for promulgating his belief in traditional marriage, or the bakers who refused to bake a cake for a same-sex marriage, or simply the numerous institutions battling the HHS Mandate in courts across the country to see that Christians are still resisting.

The new (and IMPROVED!!!) guidelines are as follows:

The first amendment which states in part, "Congress shall make...READ MORE

Islamic Terrorists Vow to "Conquer Rome." The World Wonders What They Mean

02/17/2015 Comments (64)

ISIS executioners killed 21 Coptic Christians in a horrific video released this week. The lead executioner speaking in English, pointed his knife and vowed “We will conquer Rome, by Allah’s permission."

And the world wonders what he means by this cryptic statement.

Heck, the world can't seem to figure out who the terrorists are or what their motive is, despite them telling anyone who will listen their goals.

So we look to our political leaders, our best and brightest to offer some clarifying answers on this perplexing mystery. The White House, commenting on the massacre, lamented the loss of "Egyptian citizens." In its statement, it failed to mention the faith of the victims which seemed...READ MORE

Fox to Air Show About Lucifer?

02/05/2015 Comments (12)

Comic books coming to television and movies are all the rage right now and raking in all sorts of money. But I'm thinking Fox may have taken the wrong lesson from that trend. They're announcing a new show about Lucifer based on a comic book. Yup. Ol' stick himself.

The show is being created by Tom Kapinos who made the show "Californication." The show is described as a "slice of life" drama about the Devil moving out of Hell and into Los Angeles. (Seems like a lateral move to me.) It'll be about a completely amoral character hob-nobbing with California elites so it'll essentially be exactly like "Californication." In fact, I watched one episode of Californication so I know a little bit...READ MORE

UK Mother of Six Could Be Sterilized

02/03/2015 Comments (29)

The UK government may soon be all set to forcibly sterilize a mother of six with learning disabilities, according to shocking news reports. But don't worry, they say it's for her own good.

Social Services have requested that a judge approve of them forcibly entering her home, dragging her to the hospital, and sterilizing her. But they say it has nothing to do with eugenics. No. It's nothing like that.

Health and social services officials want the judge to declare: the woman lacks capacity to make decisions under the terms of mental capacity legislation; a "therapeutic" sterilisation is in her best interests – and authorise medics to sterilise her; to authorise her removal from her home to...READ MORE
