Notice the kids in the background and what they’re doing and who they’re not paying attention to?
Obama is so yesterday.

When the paradigm is shifted to include unborn children in the quest for human dignity, how can the highlighted text above be anything but cruelly false?
Mandela was actively pro-abortion, and not just an incidental player in the Great Genocide. There will be no praises from Socon or Bust for his legacy. The much good that he did do (or not) was wiped out by his pro-abort beliefs and political activism which sought the eradication of unborn children.
May God have mercy on his soul.
Pope Francis has disappointed us again, sadly. He has spoken in defense of the unborn on many occasions, but this time he dropped the ball.
The dignity and witness to unborn life requires refraining from praising political and social activists who seek to destroy human life, or at the very least giving some semblance of balance to the picture that is being painted of their tragic legacies.
Why is it guys like Mandela get a glowing tribute but the traditional Catholic recipients of +++Francis’s arrows in the Church get no quarter? Can someone explain to me how that calculus works, please?
No one in their right mind would be praising a pro-pedophile politician (at least not yet), even if he was the greatest “human rights defender” the world has ever seen. But when it comes to abortion, everyone and their dog gets a pass. There is no accountability or even pause by those who need to share their opinion of pro-abort activists before the tongue bathing and hand wringing begins on these activists’ accomplishments. (Mandela also had three wives and was a Communist, but these are mere trifles in the bigger debate, of course.)
This double-mindedness and mental illness concerning passing over the advocacy of abortion as having any real impact on a person’s legacy or the cult of personality that we worship over and above the truth really does have to end.
There are bleeding heart liberals all over the place, but it’s nothing like what we see from Church leadership today. The sad fact is that there are bleeding hearts… those ones belonging to the unborn, and they continue to bleed because of, or at the very least are not saved by, this kind of witness.
Have we forgotten the Commandment: THY SHALL NOT BEAR FALSE WITNESS?

Sooner or later, the totalitarian impulse is confronted. It would be great if this Bill passed. When I organized the March, I should have had the gonads to deny Harper a speaking platform.
Paycheck in Catholic Health Care, Obama
You know things are really screwed up when the politicians don’t take care of themselves. Obamacare is a real disaster.
It also serves as a relevant reminder to the social justice clerics and lesbian religious in the Church who want to get into public policy debates, especially the bishops who pushed this thing a little too much. They need to take responsibility as well.

In the past, under JP2, the Church’s natural ally was the U.S. against communism. Today, the Catholic Church looks to Russia and the Orthodox to counter the West’s slide into the totalitarianism of sin.
Very interesting times ahead. I predict many years of closer and closer collaboration among between Catholics, Orthodox and other ecclesial communities.
The Cross and suffering always bring true Christians closer together. An eternity of ecumenical clap trap does not amount to one drop of blood of a common witness to Christ.
Squeaker in Canadian Politics
Trudeau has insulted Canadians on many fronts with this event. As we remember the thousands of Canadians who gave their lives to fight dictators and preserve freedom, the aspiring PM prefers dictatorships.
He needs to apologize immediately.

Here are some highlights related to family issues from today’s Speech from the Throne, which outlines the government’s priorities for the upcoming legislative sitting. Not all of these announcements are specific policy initiatives yet. Some are more like themes. The specifics will likely be announced in the upcoming Budget.
The bullets below are copied verbatim from the Speech, in no particular order. Read the rest of this entry »

Shitting thy panties is another phrase for it.
Squeaker in American Politics
According to a new Gallup poll, 81% of Americans are dissatisfied with government. We’re not talking about dissatisfaction with Obama or Congress specifically, but with government generally. This is the lowest score since Gallup started asking the question more than 40 years ago.
This is an explosive situation likely to give rise to civil unrest sooner or later. People will only put up with crap for so long. You never know what can happen in a country with a belligerent history and hundreds of millions of guns in households.
As much as I dislike Obama, the Republicans are also an embarrassment. Both parties are locked in infantile chicanery with such obvious partisanship and little care for compromise to advance the common good. It’s democracy at its worst.

Things are looking up for peace in Syria. It’s amazing how quickly it’s moving. But so far it’s just talk of peace. Let’s keep praying.
Shockingly, the catalyst for peace has come from Russia, of all places. They’ve made the Americans look foolish with their war-mongering. Get a load of this quote from Russian President Vladimir Putin last week. It came in response to Obama’s speech to the American people to seek support for a military strike on Syria, in which he made reference to “American exceptionalism”. Putin said:
When was the last time a Russian President spoke like this?
America has indeed demonstrated exceptionalism during its history. No doubt about it. But America is becoming less and less exceptional as time goes by. It used to stand out as a beacon of freedom and faith. But it’s losing its moral compass and don’t have many clear stands anymore, except perhaps its own self-interests, which is nothing exceptional since every other nation does as much.
I am still very fond of America and I admire it in many ways. But it’s losing its edge and the world is noticing. I think Americans are noticing too, as the country is mired in an economic quagmire, unemployment, unbearable debts, sexual addiction, street violence, corrupt politicians that can’t get anything accomplished, and a President whose policies have probably done more to undermine American exceptionalism than any other. The average American often seems too busy with consumerism to worry about doing the right thing.
American exceptionalism was a title rightly earned by previous generations. The current generation is squandering that inheritance while trying to cling to that title as if it were a birthright. Sorry, but it doesn’t work that way.

Today, the old form Communists are turning Christian and the Americans are going Communistic Atheist. Amazing.

The latest poll shows that only 36% of Republicans and 34% of Independents support a strike on Syria, while the percentage among Democrats has risen to 55%.
This debunks another media myth that Republicans are always the ones that want war.
Squeaker in International Politics, War
In case you didn’t know, many of the “Syrian rebels” are neither Syrian nor rebels. In fact, the largest group fighting the Assad government is a group of Al-Qaeda jihadists that includes terrorists scooped up from neighbouring countries. Do we really want to help these people get to power? Seriously?

When I ran against Baird in 2006, I told everyone that he would do much more damage being a Conservative than if he were a member of the Liberal Party or NDP. I see that I was right yet again.
