Sad

"First, never quote Mother Teresa at me — she was an evil hag who worshipped poverty, who did not help people except to encourage them to suffer more for her faith, while she lived in comfort and traveled far and wide to receive the accolades of the gullible..." PZ Myers

Now I remember why I haven't peeked in on old angry atheist PZ Myers for probably close to a year. Such a hate filled man. He's one of probably a handful of people in the world who actually hate Mr. Teresa. How in the world can anyone hate mother Teresa! LOL. Sad thing is that Mr. Myers has a following of folks who really can't see that he completely out to lunch.  I suspect most of his adoring fans are young college students.

"Vatican Warned Bishops Not To Report  Child Abuse"!


That’s the sensationalistic headline of this story in the New York Times. As usual, it’s by Laurie Goodstein, and as usual she makes significant errors in her reporting that make the story more sensationalistic in a way that (just coincidentally) paints the Holy See in an unfavorable light. (So . . . what’s up with that, Laurie? You’ve been on the beat long enough that you should be better informed on these matters.)

As with previous stories of the same nature, this one involves a document from back in the 1990s that has now come to the attention of the press. It was a letter written by the Apostolic Nuncio of Ireland (that’s basically the Holy See’s ambassador to Ireland, though he also has a liaising role with the local bishops). In the letter the Nuncio—then Luciano Storero—communicated a message to the Irish bishops from the Congregation for Clergy concerning a document that the Irish bishops had drafted on child sexual abuse.

This letter was immediately hailed by groups like SNAP as the “smoking gun” they’ve been waiting for, showing that the Holy See took part in the cover up of sexual abuse, allowing it to be sued in court, humiliated, and have money extracted from it.

You can read (a tiny, low resolution image of) the letter itself here.

Now let’s walk through it and see how the claims made about it stack up against the document itself . . .

Killing ethically

So this guy gets a coworker pregnant, performs an abortion on her thus killing his own child, and then covers up the whole thing. His punishment.... "Ethics training". I would blurt out the obligatory 'are u kidding me?' but should this really shock anyone? The crime here is bad record keeping and not referring his girlfriend to another abortionist?? What?  Because it would have been perfectly ethical to have another abortionist kill his child. Sickening reminder of how morally confused we are.

Christian author and pro-life apologist Randy Alcorn has responded to this December 14 Associated Press story:

An Aberdeen [Washington] doctor who admitted misconduct with an abortion will keep his license under an agreement with WA regulators…

Dr. John Eiland will pay a $3,000 fine, attend ethics training and be on probation for 3 years. He’s an obstetrician and gynecologist with the Grays Harbor Women’s Clinic.

The state Health Dept. accused him in February of having an improper relationship with a co-worker in 2006 when he worked at Providence Centralia Hospital. Investigators said he performed an abortion on the woman when she became pregnant. He failed to refer her to another doctor or keep records of her treatment.

Hypocrisy of evil

Whenever I hear "An abortion ban violates women's rights." I think about Gianna Jessen, survivor of a saline abortion.

"If abortion is merely about women's rights, then what were mine? There was not a radical feminist, standing up and yelling about how my rights had been violated that day. In fact my life was being snuffed out in the name of women's rights.”

Planned Parenthood- morally bankrupt

The reasons to despise Planned Parenthood continues to grow. Got a P P in your town?

A new campaign seeks to eliminate disclosure laws which require HIV positive individuals to inform their sex partners of their potentially deadly infection.

The campaign is led by the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) and UNAIDS, an umbrella group of UN agencies. Notably absent from this campaign is any recognition of the danger posed for the possible victims of a willful refusal to disclose HIV status.

As part of the campaign, IPPF released a collection of interviews entitled “Behind Bars”, which implies that such criminal laws fuel stigma against HIV persons.  Proponents of criminal laws assert they are designed to help protect and prevent sexual partners from contracting a potentially deadly virus.

Some of the testimony of the interviewees in “Behind Bars” directly contradicts the assertions made by IPPF.  An Egyptian doctor states that irresponsible behavior which results in a car accident deserves punishment just like the failure to disclose one’s HIV status before engaging in sexual activity deserves punishment: “In the same way, if someone who knows that he is HIV positive is careless and just allows my son or my daughter to become HIV infected I would feel the same.”

“Behind Bars” is part of a larger IPPF campaign, “Criminalize Hate Not HIV”, launched at the International Aids Conference in Vienna in July. IPPF describes laws that make willful transmission of HIV to another person as too-costly, hindrances to prevention, and stigmatizing. The video promo [WARNING: EXPLICIT CONTENT] for the campaign depicts various sexual scenes.  The video appears to promote homosexual sex, drug use, and prostitution, which are listed by the Center for Disease Control as three of the most high risk behaviors responsible for the transmission of HIV.

“This clearly shows that IPPF believes that illicit sex is more important that life itself – and they are willing to risk other people’s lives to advance their sexual agenda,” said Wendy Wright, President of Concerned Women for America.

The abortion mascot.

Just when I thought I had seen every face of the abortion industry.

Lilith: the barren, sex-crazed, child-killing mascot of the abortion movement




November 29, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Every once in a while, one stumbles upon a terrifying level of honesty among abortion supporters. Normally, the truth is something that refreshes us when we come upon it - not so in this realm.

Such is the nomenclature of what appears to be a moderately successful group dedicated solely to providing low-income women with abortion money, called the Lilith Fund.

The Texas-based group explains its name on its website as follows: “Lilith was the first woman created by God, as Adam’s wife and equal. Because Lilith refused to be subservient or submissive, she was sent away from Eden.”

This is a somewhat accurate presentation of Lilith’s bio; however, it’s certainly not the whole story. Here’s how the Hebrew legend, as first described in the Alphabet of Ben Sira of the 8th-10th century, ends: after Lilith flew away (and was not sent) from Eden, God punished her by dictating that one hundred of her own demon children would be killed each day. She responds by asserting her perpetual desire to sicken and kill newborn infants.

The abortion industry’s poster girl if ever there was one.

Catholic Mass

Ever wonder how the earliest Christians worshiped? Read the words of St. Justin Martyr. He is describing Catholic Mass! You can't miss the references to the real presence of the *Eucharist*.

St. Justin Martyr, Letter to Antoninus Pius, Emperor, 155 AD.
