Even Freud, who was certainly not a Christian and who many people considered to be too preoccupied with sexual matters, knew that contraception was a perversion. Read this quote:

When the Church speaks of natural law, it means that such knowledge is accessible to all humans of all religions (or non-religions). Contraception falls into that category. Even a non-Christian like Gandhi understood what contraception meant. Check out this juicy quote:
Paycheck in Catholic Education, Catholic Scandals, Contraception
Re: the bishops’ new pastoral letter on living a chaste life:
These are the kind of ignoramuses that are teaching university theology courses these days. She implies that Vatican II loosened Catholic teaching on contraception.
What a stupid woman. About 15 seconds on Google makes you look like a fool, Ms. Haker. Read’em and weep:
These, based on the nature of the human person and his acts, preserve the full sense of mutual self-giving and human procreation in the context of true love. Such a goal cannot be achieved unless the virtue of conjugal chastity is sincerely practiced. Relying on these principles, sons of the Church may not undertake methods of birth control which are found blameworthy by the teaching authority of the Church in its unfolding of the divine law. (Gaudium et Spes, 51, Second Vatican Council)

Maybe he can do an interview with Salt + Light and Fr. Rosica after Coren’s program.
Now that’s a show that you could sell tickets to!
Click on this link to get access to a six-part course of solid Catholic teaching on sexuality. A great resource for mature teenagers, young adults and, in fact, adults of all ages. Both Protestants and Catholics alike will learn from this.

Squeaker in Abortion, American Politics, Catholic Scandals
Watch the video below to learn how a real bishop is supposed to act in rebuking false teaching on abortion by a pro-choice “Catholic” politician.
Polite. Firm. Graceful. Clear. Decisive. No compromise.
Sweet music to my ears!
This video should be part of basic training for every new priest and bishop.
Notice how he emphasizes the importance for him to address this matter publicly because Nancy Pelosi was publicly spreading errors about abortion that could mislead the faithful. Doesn’t that make sense? Why don’t other bishops do it? Are they scared? Are they afraid of losing donations? Are they too cozy with the politicians? Only God knows, but regardless of the reasons, none are valid. Mere excuses for failure to fulfill their duty.
On countless occasions, Socon or Bust has voiced concerns about dissenters in the Church. We’re all tired of hearing about it. Believe me, neither John nor I enjoy writing about it, but we must continue working until the problem is fixed.
In some cases, dissent is due to ignorance. That can hardly be called dissent because it’s not done intentionally.
In many other cases, however, dissent stems from a desire to make the Gospel easier and closer to worldly values. Weak human nature leads people to distort Christianity, to abandon the sound teaching of their ancestors in favour of a Catholicism lite, supposedly with all the Catholicism taste, but zero calories of effort. In reality, they just end up with a lot of gas.
I think we can all relate to this, if we are honest….
If you don’t believe us, ask yourself what happens when (not if) contraception fails?
The U.S. Supreme Court knew it. And so does Planned Parenthood.
That’s what keeps the business going.
Nothing to get too excited about, but still…it’s an encouraging sign.
Squeaker in Human Rights Baloney, Islam
This is an insightful piece by Michael Coren. I think he puts his finger on the precise reason why lefties, who usually get worked up about “human rights violations”, can’t seem to get passionate about the regular mauling of Christians by Muslims:
If you want to know the true state of the soul of our society, consider how people get enraged at a professional football player mistreating dogs, but yawn at the news of hundreds of Christians being blown to shreds by Muslims. What does that reveal about the inner thoughts of these so-called progressives? It tells me that they suffer from “selective sympathy”, i.e. they only care for things they like. This might be a natural human inclination, but it doesn’t jive with their “official” stance progressive stance on human rights.
Paycheck in Catholic Education, Catholic Scandals, Homosexuality
Remember what I said about the bishops doing nothing about the Rainbow Groups forming in Catholic schools? Boy, was I right.
Check out the commentary below by the bishops and their bureaucrats on the lame excuse why they refuse to fight for Catholic education (emphasis mine):
How pathetic and sad. As if it needs to be said, but I guess it does. Here goes…. Read the rest of this entry »
Paycheck in Religious Persecution, University Censorship
It’s sad that many areas are experiencing a shortage of priests. Churches are being closed and parishes are merged. Priests are overworked and burnt out. Many congregations have to settle for a Liturgy of the Word instead of the Mass. It’s not an easy situation.
Yet, God is always capable of bringing good out of suffering. Read the rest of this entry »
Paycheck in Abortion, Catholic Scandals, Contraception
I’ve always believed we should throw everything at them, including the kitchen sink, and hope something sticks.
This is a great idea, and it’s high time we started to play this game with a little bit of grit and edge.
You know what I think? I think abortion is going down. And I also think Banned Parenthood and the Poor Choicers know it, too.
We’re winding back the clock.
Squeaker in Abortion, Contraception
Until we get rid of contraception, we’ll never be fully free of abortion. Even Planned Parenthood knows this.
The key quote in the video below reads as follows:
By now, you’ve all heard about the atrocities perpetrated by abortionist Dr. Gosnell in Pennsylvania.
What are the pro-aborts saying about it? I’m inviting our readers to tell us what they’ve read or heard in the media and on blogs.
Over at Dammit Janet, they have just one story on the Gosnell file. They rightly deplore how women were mistreated at the facility, but not a peep about all those babies that were born alive and had their spinal chords snipped with a pair of scissors. I can’t say I’m surprised. As pro-lifers have been saying all along, there’s no difference between abortion and infanticide. The folks at Dammit Janet have inadvertently confirmed it again. For them, the babies aren’t even worth mentioning, it would seem. Read the rest of this entry »
