It's like saying, "I don't know anybody who is pro-abortion," as you rack up one of the most ardently pro-abortion voting records in U.S. history. It's horrific enough that they folks are so devoted to abortion, but then they have to rape language, pillage truth, and spit in the faces of those women who are mothers because they rejected having an abortion, some of them despite being pressured to do so.

Well said, Carl.

I don't know what planet US Catholics have been living on for the past 40 years, but it seems that the BO candidacy/election finally has awakened a wide swath of bishops, priests and laymen to the horror of what's been going on in our midst daily. Now the US has a President who's floating euthanasia as the final solution to the "healthcare crisis" he and his buddies defined and have been beating us over the head with for the last two decades.

It is going to get crazier.


"There is no organization that I know of that supports motherhood and all that it means more than Planned Parenthood."

That goes beyond parody.


All so highly predictable. What other endorsement would you expect after reading this entry from wikipedia:

Perhaps one of her most censored and challenged books is Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret (1970), and considered to deal with many “rite of passage” topics for young, pre-teen girls. This book is about an eleven year old girl, Margaret Simon, who is growing up with no organized religion (her father was Jewish and her mother Christian). However, she does seem to have a close relationship with God. She views Him as her friend and confidant, someone she talks to when she cannot seem to talk to anyone else about important issues in her life. When assigned a yearlong independent project at school, Margaret chooses to study people’s beliefs. This proves to be a weighty assignment for Margaret. In her quest to complete the project and find out more about other’s beliefs, Margaret discovers a lot about herself as well. Through serious yet sometimes comical situations, the book also deals with several other taboo topics: Margaret having to buy her very first bra; having her first period and having to deal with sanitary napkins; jealousy over other girls having more womanly figures than hers; and liking boys. Margaret learns to better understand and cope with these issues from talks with her mother, grandmother, friends, and of course, God. This book deals openly with sexuality and religion, which makes it one of the most challenged books in America. On the list of the top 100 most challenged books at the American Libraries Association, Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret, falls at number sixty two.4 In several interviews, Blume tells the story of receiving a phone call from a woman who harassed her and called her a communist for writing this book. Blume jokes that she does not know whether she received this accusation was because of how the book dealt with religion or because of how it dealt with sexuality.²

I liked your adjective " bloody". Very true but very Australian vernacular. I'm not accustomed to seeing Americans use that word, in that context. Bloody great!

It is always cheaper to kill someone, whether before they are born, or after they are no longer "productive." Culture of death indeed, and if we say you can't do that, they answer with a cheer, "yes we can!"


Arrrrrrgh! What's so frustrating is, there will be people who believe this stuff.

With the current culture's obsession with youth, never growing old, euthanasia seeming to gain support, the lie of overpopulation, I sometimes wonder how long before we fall into a "Logan's Run" mentality, where people willingly go to their early death.

Every day I thank the Lord for my orthodox friends who homeschool and teach their children to think critically and know their faith.
