The Ottawa Catholic School Board (OCSB) will continue its partnership with Free The Children in spite of a group of parents who urged the board last month to cut ties with the charity due to its and its founders’ support for contraception and abortion. (Source)
Well, it comes down to getting real with yourself and with your beliefs. If you want to be treated like a fool, then keep believing the official response. It’s amazing. The evidence is all out there like it was with D&P and we get the same lidless-eye crowd just bald-faced lying to us…in the age of the internet no less!
The old line: ”Who are you going to believe? The Bureaucracy or your eyes?” comes to mind.
Ha ha. Obviously withdrawal is immoral too, but if the pharmaceutical companies take a hit and the whole sex industry gets nailed…hey, that’s a positive development!
The best things in life are seldom “planned”.
Gotta kick out of this part:
“Deciding to use withdrawal makes you think about the relationship.
“You have to address all outcomes, such as: what would we do if I got pregnant? Any conversation that doesn’t get past this suggests your relationship is not at the right stage or you’re not with the right man.”
And it seems that discussing all possible outcomes may be vital.
Isn’t that funny? Any chance of pregnancy automatically means better communication and even acceptance. The flip side of this is condoms. No communication. Just the physical hit and that’s it.
“It’s disappointing,” said Alex McKay, research coordinator at SIECCAN “The last time a large-scale (sexual health) study was done that included a university sample, we got similar figures. I was hoping that, over time, rates of condom use would’ve increased.”
Of those students who used condoms, the main motivation was birth control (54 per cent). A combination of birth control and STI prevention was cited by far fewer (38 per cent), while STI prevention alone came in at just six per cent. (Source)
The sexologists just don’t get it. Sex was never made to be worn with a stupid glove. It’s not natural. It’s not right. And everyone instinctively knows it. That’s why it’s so hard for the sex police to enforce their best practice regime.
Voris makes some good points in the Vortex below. It’s not uncommon for well-intentioned Catholics to fall into the contraceptive mentality without realizing it. They may have been taught that they’re free to have sex while avoiding pregnancy indefinitely, as long as they don’t use any artificial means. They may think that the pill or the rubber are the intrinsic evil, and not the mentality behind it. So they figure that as long as they only use NFP, anything goes. Read the rest of this entry »
A week later, Father J. Francis Stafford was invited to attend a meeting in the basement of a rectory in Baltimore with 54 of his fellow priests. “The meeting was led by several priests from St. Mary’s Seminary in Baltimore and some local diocesan priests. Each attendee was asked to sign a statement of dissent that would be published the next day in the Baltimore Sun. The leader of the group, a former marine and a master of persuasion and intimidation, ’minced no words of his expectations’ of the group. There would be no time for discussion. They were to sign on the dotted line. One after another signed. Finally, this young priest was all that stood in the way of a document of unanimity. He stood firm. He didn’t sign. He said to his fellow priests that he didn’t sign for two reasons: (1) he had not read the document (and he also noted that none in the room, including the leaders of the group, had read it), and (2) he agreed with Pope Paul VI.
“The leader of the dissenters tried several times, using strong, coercive tactics and verbal abuse, to change the mind of this priest. None of his fellow priests came to his defense. Rather than the scorecard reading 55 to 0. It was 54 to one. (Source)
It’s been a lonely road, but we’re slowly winning the war. How prophetic HV was!
ERIE, PA, July 8, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The bishop of Erie, Pennsylvania, has declared the city’s largest hospital may no longer be considered a Catholic institution, after its new owners have signaled they will begin performing sterilizations in violation of the Catholic faith. (Source)
Good show, Bishop Perisco.
By that standard, a number of dioceses in Canada and even the CCCB itself might have their “Catholic” name revoked for covering contraceptives in their health insurance plans.
The papal theologian drew attention to the violent youth protests and mass unemployment across Europe. “They are generally demonstrating saying, ‘We have the right to receive’, because their parents received grants for their studies, they received cheaper housing, and so they have this sense of entitlement which is a consequence of socialism – somebody has to give.”
Fr. Giertych warned “ultimately there will be a violent conflict.”
He said: “And the states are finally saying, ‘We cannot give. There is a limit, you know. How far can we go?’ And of course the state may produce money and be more and more in debt, but ultimately there will be a violent conflict, and euthanasia is one aspect of this conflict, which is a direct consequence of the expulsion of the transmission of life and the living out of sexuality. Ultimately it boils down to contraception – it’s a consequence.”…(Source)
Socialism and contraception: the great opium of the age. But when it’s all said and done will people really admit this was the reason for the downfall of our culture, or will they still insist on bindly pinning it on the surface politics of our age?
In its quarterly examination of the economic outlook for the world’s major economies, the Conference Board of Canada identifies rapidly aging populations coupled with well-below-replacement-level birth rates in the Asia-Pacific region as indicators that the once powerful economies of these countries are headed toward economic collapse.

Socon or Bust has been trying to warn the Left for years, but they wouldn’t listen. They were too busy laughing when I was yammering on about contraception and condom taxes.
But like the old saying goes, “Who’s laughing now?”
Not sure who is laughing…but I know who will be crying.
