but we live in dark days.
Over at Fr Z’s blog Father posted the following:
A philosophy professor at the University of Notre Dame published an opinion piece at the New York Times arguing that Pope Francis should reconsider the Catholic Church’s stance on abortion.
“Pope Francis has raised expectations of a turn away from the dogmatic intransigence that has long cast a pall over the religious life of many Roman Catholics,” writes Gary Gutting in his column, “Should Pope Francis Rethink Abortion?”
We live in an age of remarkable advances in the sciences,medicine and physics and yet we go backwards into the barbaric ages. Mr Gutting also doesn’t realize that Pope Francis-or for that matter Holy Mother,the Church-is NOT going to change the teaching.He seems to have forgotten one very simple reason.GOD is the Creator and Author of life.
Then we have our POTUS. I hear 3-4 million people didn’t bother to vote.They may as well have cast their vote for Obama. I can’t believe people didn’t care more about their country than to sit home and let Obama get elected.He will destroy us in short order.How long does it take to vote? How hard especially with absentee ballots? It’s as bad as the people who enthusiastically voted for him.
I think back to the OT. Isaiah Chapter 30 to be exact.The chosen people are stubborn and decide they want any leader but God.They think the leader they want is going to put a chicken in every pot and a car in every garage so to speak. He permits them to get what they want.Of course God knows better and this is not a good leader;God is not going to interfere with free will.He’s also a good Father in letting his children be disciplined from the consequences.
Woe to the rebellious children, says the LORD, Who carry out plans that are not mine, who weave webs that are not inspired by me, adding sin upon sin.
They go down to Egypt, but my counsel they do not seek. They find their strength in Pharaoh’s protection and take refuge in Egypt’s shadow;
Pharaoh’s protection shall be your shame, and refuge in Egypt’s shadow your disgrace.
When their princes are at Zoan and their messengers reach Hanes,
All shall be ashamed of a people that gain them nothing, Neither help nor benefit, but only shame and reproach.
Note their end.
You wonder who voted for the guy-Obama that is. Women.Romney was going to deprive them of contraception.He wasn’t but that’s beside the point. The media calls them Catholic.They’re actually LAPSED Catholics. People who probably don’t know what the Church teaches or know and don’t care.No faithful praticing Catholic who knows what the Church teaches could possibly have voted for Obama. Young people.I’m not sure why the voted for him.Love to hear it.Obama is a secular humanist meaning the state is god.
You don’t vote for people who don’t have a moral backbone. They tend to be corrupt and lawless.They don’t really care about the people they govern.
Sorry to say i think we are going to have to learn the hard way and we have 2 more years of it. By then the country we used to know is not going to exist.
catch ya later today 🙂
I am a senior physician with over six decades of experience who has observed his share of critical illness—but only from the doctor’s perspective. That changed suddenly and disastrously on the morning of June 27, 2013, ten days after my ninetieth birthday, when I fell down the stairs in my home, broke my neck, and very nearly died. Since then, I have made an astonishing recovery, in the course of which I learned how it feels to be a helpless patient close to death. I also learned some things about the US medical care system that I had never fully appreciated, even though this is a subject that I have studied and written about for many years.
For a number of years now, we have been warning you that Hollywood has begun to embrace and promote open Satanism in the “entertainment” products they have been offering. NTEB’s ground-breaking article last year on how multi-platinum singer Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z are openly members of the Illuminati and proud Satanists left most of middle America gasping to catch it’s collective breath. This year, however, marks a full 100% increase in open witchcraft, Satanism and the occult being broadcast through music, movies and television.
Protect your children, unplug your television.
InfoWars: Popular Christian gospel singer Natalie Grant walked out of the Grammys after witnessing a series of performances that even the mainstream entertainment media admitted were occult in nature.
Grant, who was nominated for a Grammy in 2012, tweeted her excitement upon arriving at the event but soon made it clear that she left early because what she witnessed…

i decided to pass on listening to the SOTU tonight. Caught a few minutes here and there. FIgured i’d get just as much out of it listening to the analysis and a few sound bytes as to bear an hour of it.
Caught a shot of Sen “Chuck” Schumer. I’ll have to find an image of that one online. A picture is worth a 1k words.Anyone see when the camera panned him in the audience?
A few min into the SOTU switched over to listen to Threshold of Hope with Fr Mitch Pacwa on EWTN. Learned more worthwhile info there believe me! He’s examining the encyclical Fides et Ratio(Faith and Reason)of Blessed John Paul II and touched on St Thomas Aquinas. Mom was good enough to get me the book the Apostolic Letters and Exhortations of John Paul II for our last Christmas together.The previous year she bought me Theology of the Body;Human Love in the Divine Plan of Blessed John Paul II.I’d rather listen to Pope Francis,Fr Mitch Pacwa and read Father Z’s blog than listen to our President any day.
God help us! Seriously. I have been around awhile and have never seen our country like this. PLS vote some good ppl in come Nov. I fear our best days are behind us and we’ve lost our way.
How can anyone take Obama seriously? A man who spent more time with celebrities, on the golf course,vacationing and campaigning while President than actually worrying about the direction the country was heading in.
The same guy who thinks pot is harmless and Beyonce is a good role model for his kids.
While Rome was burning he was tweeting about the ‘rights’ of the LGBT. Forget the families struggling out here.
He comes up with this goofy idea of common core for the schools and it’s nothing more than indoctrination.
Maybe if he had some better role models and used the bully pulpit to talk about the value of a good education PLUS give parents school choice we wouldn’t be in the shape we’re in.Nope.No can do. He comes up with a government program. Get the federal government out of education; time for the Dept of Education to go. Give it an F and move on.
Jobs? Did he even mention the Keystone Pipeline? He says we produced more energy here in the U.S. than ever before. True-but it’s also true it’s in spite of him not because of him. The EPA has been hard on our energy industries.Remember his investment in Solyndra(it went BANKRUPT) and his trying to shut down coal? That’s all we need to know right there.
I have to get some z’s. We only have 1 day left to get everything ready to haul out of here on Friday. Will get some photos too. Not well this week. It’s going to be hard.
I wish they’d skip these SOTU addresses altogether. They’re like a bunch of clapping seals in the audience and the speeches are always too long and accomplish too little.
