Archbishop Aquila's 9/11 Reminder: Love of God Linked to Love of Man (903)

The archbishop of Denver wrote that violence in the name of religion, be it the terrorist attacks of 13 years ago or the current atrocities perpetuated by ISIS and Boko Haram, is a reflection of a hatred of God.

DENVER —  The 13th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks against the United States is a chance to mourn and honor those who died, as well as to choose love over hatred, Archbishop Samuel Aquila said.

“The fruit of people hating their fellow man is that they end up hating God. Their religion becomes warped and twisted by their hatred for their neighbor,” the Denver Archbishop said in his Sept. 11 column for the Denver Catholic Register.

Hatred and death were never meant to be a part of creation, but they came about when Adam and Eve disobeyed God in the Garden of Eden, later leading up to the first murder when Cain killed his brother Abel out of jealousy.

DENVER — This week the world will remember the 13th anniversary of the events of 9/11, but for Steamboat Springs resident Kevin Nerney, 56, the attacks are “a daily memory.”

On Sept. 11, 2001, Lieutenant Nerney was settling into a new life in Steamboat Springs, having just retired two weeks earlier from the New York City Fire Department. He watched as the Twin Towers crumbled, knowing that his crew would most likely be on the ground.

He found out later that all the men from his fire station on duty that day died, including his best friend. He took the first available plane back to New York to help with the search and cleanup efforts.

“It was a horror show,” he said recalling the 10 days...READ MORE

Obama Administration Continues to Target Little Sisters of the Poor (1570)

The administration has announced it will continue with its legal case to impose the HHS mandate on the religious sisters’ charitable operations.

09/10/2014 Comments (5)

WASHINGTON — The Obama Administration has announced that it will continue its legal fight against the Little Sisters of the Poor over the contraception mandate, which religious liberty advocates say remains unconscionable.

“Merely offering the Little Sisters a different way to violate their religion does not ease their conscience,” said Adele Keim, counsel at the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, which is representing the Little Sisters of the Poor in court.

“Religious ministries in these cases serve tens of thousands of Americans, helping the poor and homeless and healing the sick. The Little Sisters of the Poor alone serve more than ten thousand of the elderly poor,” she observed in a...READ MORE

BRUSSELS — Belgium’s doctor-assisted suicide laws allowed an unqualified doctor to kill a depressed mother who did not have a terminal illness without notifying her family, the woman’s son has charged in legal filing against them.

“People suffering from depression need compassion and love, not a prescription for death,” Roger Kiska, senior counsel with Alliance Defending Freedom, said Sept. 3. “The state has a duty to put the necessary safeguards in place so that suffering patients receive adequate care from doctors and an opportunity to consult with family members.”

Alliance Defending Freedom has filed an application with the European Court of Human Rights on behalf of Tom Mortier, son...READ MORE

NEW DELHI — The Church in southern Kerala state is ecstatic after the state government announced drastic steps to usher in prohibition in the largest Christian pocket in India, which also has the nation’s highest alcoholism rates.

“It is much more than what we had hoped for,” admitted the bishop, who heads the Thamarassery Diocese in north Kerala.
