Stupak says Rep. Randy Neugebauer’s shout “tarnished” the reputation of the House.” Really? And the fact that Stupak himself, after repeatedly promising that he would not fold, that he would stand firm against those who were pressuring him, that he would stand for life—now he has the nerve to say that Rep. Neugebauer “tarnished” the reputation of the House? Really?! Continue reading

Not so dynamic duoLifenews has a good article about last night’s perfidy perpetrated in full view of the American public. Pro-life Democrats. Yeah, right. I thought that was a contradiction in terms a couple of years ago when I experienced an awakening and realized I could never think of myself as a Democrat again. And I was right! I still shudder to think that I ever voted for the party that uses the image of an @ss to represent itself. But I did. I was an idiot. I’m not saying that the Republican party is perfect, far from it. If they had been more pro-actively pro-life all along, we might be in a much better situation right now. (Song verse at end of this post.) Continue reading

Just this weekend I was at a friend’s house and she showed me a Schoolhouse Rock video she has: How a Bill Becomes a Law. After last night’s disastrous legislation passed, I was devastated. Again. Almost as devastated as I was when the pro-abortion “No Hope” Obama won the election. Surfing around for news today, what did I discover but this brand new video on YouTube, How a Bill Really Becomes a Law: A Schoolhouse Rock Parody by MC CeeBro. I love it. Watch the video below.

Somebody was wandering through the blog the other day and left a comment on a post I wrote about the Mass, Salvation and the Sacraments. (You’ll notice, I’m sure, that the comment has less than nothing to do with the post but is, instead, about Obama.) Continue reading

St JosephIf you haven’t heard about Nancy Pelosi asking St. Joseph to intercede to get this outrageous legislation passed, I invite you to watch the video below. Nancy Pelosi is a Catholic like I’m a Jedi Knight. No, I take that back. I’m light-years closer to being a Jedi Knight than she is to being anything like an “ardent practicing Catholic.” Nancy, give it a rest, give me a break, and give a public apology to St. Joseph, Protector and Guardian of the Holy Family, the Patron of the Universal Church, Terror of Demons and Patron of Workers, for daring to mention him as the patron of workers, adding that this bill would benefit the workers of this country (or anyone else!), as if this would convince the foster-father of Jesus Christ to intercede with the Lord on behalf of her unspeakable, thoroughly deplorable and despicable atrociously misleading and misnamed “health care reform” abomination and atrocity.

What follows are some thoughts and reflections on the current health care debate, specifically as it concerns Christian hospitals after reading Peter Singer, listening to Sr. Carol Keehan, DC, on The World Over, and others for many months. As Christians we are called to union with Christ. To pick up our crosses daily and follow in His footsteps. We are not called to succeed by any and all means. We are not called to do whatever it takes to get the job done. We are called to be faithful followers of our Lord. That’s what discipleship is all about. Too many Christians (I should say, “wanna be” Christians) forget that. They forget that Christ did not ask us to solve world poverty by any means. He did ask us to practice fraternal charity. He asked us to love our neighbors. He asked us to worship God so that we would receive the necessary grace to be able to follow Him so as to have communion with Him here, and to live with Him in eternal beatitude in the next life.

Saving Those Damned Catholics, by Judie Brown(The following post refers to something I wrote back in October.) I’ve been listening to Judie Brown and others from the American Life League and reading Mrs. Brown’s book, Saving Those Damned Catholics (on sale right now at ALL’s store, see link), and I gotta tell you, I thought the bishops were doing a better job than she thinks they were. And she’s in a position to know a whole lot more about it than I am. Her book is an eye-opener, as was her interview with Raymond Arroyo along with Sr. Carol Keehan on EWTN‘s The World Over. She sure gave Sr. an earful that night, I’ll give her that! Continue reading
