Mayor Nutter Attempts to Hijack Papal Appearance to Tout LGBT Rights

09/26/2015 Comments (55)

In a disturbing turn of events, Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter, a graduate of a Jesuit high school, reportedly used the appearance of Pope Francis in Philadelphia to push the gay agenda.

Nutter had previously promised to ask the pope to "end judgment" of LGBT people by the church and then today, the mayor used his public appearance before hundreds of thousands of Catholics who gathered to see the pope to do just that.

Speaking at Independence Hall before the pope, the mayor said "In America, everyone has rights...Our lesbian, gay and bisexual citizens continue to fight for equality."

"Keep fighting for your rights," he added. "It's a collective fight. And there are many others...READ MORE

Pope Francis' Awesome Drop Mic Moment on Religious Liberty

OK. You've gotta' admit, this is the perfect response to the most blatant display of hypocrisy seen in days in our nation's capital. Earlier today, President Obama hysterically pretended to support religious freedom while the pope sat just feet away. He said:

You remind us that people are only truly free when they can practice their faith freely. Here in the United States, we cherish religious liberty. Yet around the world at this very moment, children of God, including Christians, are targeted and even killed because of their faith. Believers are prevented from gathering at their places of worship. The faithful are imprisoned. Churches are destroyed. So we stand with you in defense of...READ MORE

You've Got to Watch Sarah Palin Talk About Abortion and Down Syndrome on CNN

09/07/2015 Comments (15)

There's a few things to love here. The way Sarah Palin speaks from the heart and experience about the miracle of life even when one is scared about their child being different.

And then on a more political slant, you've got to appreciate how CNN's Jake Tapper gives Sarah Palin the room to speak from the heart about this issue. It's really quite wonderful.

Pope Francis Says Something Or Other About an Uninteresting Topic

08/31/2015 Comments (11)

You ever notice that many seem to hear Pope Francis loud and clear when he says something they agree with or if he mentions an issue they believe should be on the world's front burners. But when Pope Francis talks about life in the womb, religious freedom, or the sanctity of marriage he's essentially ignored by many, including the mainstream media.

I'll admit, I do it a little bit too in that I ignore stories that will ruin my morning. It's human nature, I think. And I think the internet makes it very easy to only read websites and sources that tend to agree with you.

But the one issue that is almost completely ignored is when this pope has talked about the persecution of Christians....READ MORE

House to Vote on "Freezing" Planned Parenthood Funding

08/29/2015 Comments (22)

When Republicans say they want to cut government funding for Planned Parenthood but aren't willing to shut down the government over it what they're really saying is that Democrats want to fund the abortion giant more than Republicans want to cut its funding. So in light of them marching into this battle with their hands already up, Republicans are reportedly planning a vote to "freeze" funding for Planned Parenthood in the fall.

What does a funding freeze mean and how does that differ from a funding cut? It seems that the freeze would be temporary - in fact, it would only last for a year. I guess they're hoping that Democrats will more likely be amenable to a freeze as opposed to a cut. Or...READ MORE

Awesome Vid: Judge Bars Band from Playing Hymn At Halftime, Crowd Sings It

08/24/2015 Comments (15)

This is beautiful.

I'll give you a little background first but you can already guess most of it as it's so clichéd at this point. High school band plays the instrumental version of "How Great Thou Art" at halftime of the football game. Insert nutty secularist type who sues. Lunatic Obama appointed judge (redundant?) declares they can't play it. (Mind you, it's the instrumental version) The judge also fined the school district to really teach it a lesson.

So the season opening game occurred on Friday night and there was to be no high school band performance.

During halftime, one person stood up and began singing "How Great Thou Art" and then another and then another. Soon, it looks like...READ MORE

Archdiocese of Philadelphia Reports Threefold Increase in Priestly Vocations

08/21/2015 Comments (4)

Some good news coming out of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. The Archdiocese just announced a three-fold increase in its priestly vocations from last year with 20 new seminarians enrolling in Saint Charles Seminary. One of those men is the godfather of my youngest child and we couldn't be prouder.

The increase is the largest in over ten years.

"It is extraordinarily gratifying to see these young men choosing a life of service to Jesus Christ and the people of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia," said Most Reverend Timothy C. Senior, Rector of Saint Charles Seminary in a press release. "With the servant leadership example of Pope Francis and Archbishop Chaput, these young men are once again...READ MORE

New Movie About "Chariots of Fire" Runner Will Ignore His Christianity?

08/17/2015 Comments (3)

A new movie being made about one of the most famous Christians of the 20th century, an Olympic runner Eric Liddell, will reportedly ignore his Christianity.

You might remember Liddell's story because of his refusal to run in the 1924 Olympics on a Sunday because of his Christianity. He didn't run in the 100m on Sunday but instead ran in 400m and won gold. Pretty amazing story, right? Yeah, a movie was made about it called Chariots of Fire which focused on Liddell's Christianity. It won like a gazillion Academy Awards.

But Liddell's story only became more amazing later in life. Instead of becoming a professional athlete or returning to the Olympics, Liddell then went to China as a...READ MORE
