Just Before Election, Dirty Tactics Against Life


Woman mocking Church at rally
Fighting against a prolife ballot measure in North Dakota, Planned Parenthood and cronies are exercising their free choice to use dirty tactics.  This week has been especially blatant.  They don’t even have an office in North Dakota but they have poured $1.5 million (96% of total donations) to fund the opposition North Dakotans Against Measure 1 (NDAM1).

Big Liars, Up Close and Personal


             Satan, the father of all lies, is at the core of all deception. The greater the deception, the more one is acting against God.
Here in North Dakota, I have watched in horror as Planned Parenthood has poured $1.4 million into our state to spread lies to defeat a prolife measure in the November 4 election.

An Exorcist Talks about Horror Movies

If the devil is going to show up at some point in a movie, I’d rather not pay to see it.  Yet, any exorcist will tell you that it’s the devil that you don’t see that is the most dangerous--the ones that tell you immorality is a good thing and if there’s a God, he wouldn’t mind.  
In the movie, Ouija, which opened on October 24, the devil shows up.  And by name.  He does not come trying to make evil look good, he comes as pure evil with all the horror you would expect.

Our Lady of Nicaragua


Painting of Our Lady of Necaragua
        Somehow, living in the warp speed of our modern world, until just this week, I never heard of the Church-approved apparitions of Our Lady of Nicaragua, also known as Our Lady of Cuapa.  The visions with messages for our time, took place from April 15 to October 13 in 1980.  

Bernardo Martinez was a humble, middle-aged Nicaraguan rancher who died  in 2000 as Fr. Bernardo Marinez, having been ordained a priest in 1995 at the age of 64.  This article is condensed from Bernardo Martinez's full statement on the apparitions given to Bishop Mons. Pablo Antonia Vega, Prelate Bishop of Juigalpa.

The Hope of Lepanto: the Feast of the Holy Rosary

We are not to lose hope even in the face of the nightly evening news.  We have Jesus and all the treasures of the Catholic Church.  And on October 7, we have the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, also known as Our Lady of Victory.  This feast is not just an example that we should follow, but one that we must follow if we desire victory.

Footing the Bill for Moral Confusion

Moral oblivion comes with a price tag.  There are many costs, such as 1.5 million a day for Planned Parenthood and all the children from single-parent homes needing services,  but I want to turn my attention to a recent addition to the taxpayer ledger.  Until May 30 of this year, Medicare denied requests for sex reassignments surgeries, but the procedure is now considered medically necessary for people who feel nature assigned them the wrong parts.  I’m not making light of this painful situation but I am saying:  Oh come on!

Changing the World – One Child at a Time by Diane Sonntag

       
Jean Gaunt
          “Look at this,” Jean Gaunt said, showing the Sunday newspaper to her husband, Tom.  Their hometown paper, the Indianapolis Star, featured a story about nine siblings who were available for adoption.  It was Mother’s Day 1999, and the irony of the date did not escape Jean.
            “I had not thought about adopting for quite a while, until I saw the article,” says Jean.  “One of the little girls, Samantha, was seven at the time and she looked quite a bit like I did at that age.  It really tugged on my heartstrings, especially since it was Mother’s Day.”  Jean says that she rarely reads the newspaper and she just happened to read it on that day.  If she hadn’t seen the article, she never would have known about the kids.

Courage Under Fire, a 911 Hero by Thomas Edward Burnett Sr.

This 9/11 story is of the hero—a Catholic and daily communicant-- who tried to take back the plane from terrorist before it crashed in PA.  It is shared through the eyes of his loving father and was originally published exclusively in  "Amazing Grace for Families." 

Looking down over the Omaha beaches of Normandy, France, my son, Thomas Jr. pointed to the stretch of land which is now a cemetery holding more than 9,000 WWII American soldiers.  “That’s where some of the fiercest fighting took place,” he explained.  
My son had planned this trip of a lifetime with me. As a history buff, he was enamored with the heroism of the men who stormed the beaches at Normandy over sixty years ago on what become known as D-Day.  The operation remains the largest invasion from sea to land in history; involving close to three million troops crossing the English Channel to take back France from German occupation. It was a bold and bloody mission in which rapid enemy fire failed to halt these heroic men from marching forward into almost certain death--all in the name of freedom.

Note to LBGT Community: Don’t Apply to Catholic Schools



Marian High School
I have a message for the LBGT community: I love you.  You are a child of God. But because I love you, I want you to avoid making your life miserable.  Therefore, if you are looking for a teaching job, don’t apply at a Catholic school. 
Catholic Schools have morality clauses not in sync with a LBGT lifestyle.  But you already knew that.  Barb Webb of Bloomfield Hills, MI knew that too when she applied to work at the all-girls Marian High School.  She was a chemistry teacher and coach.  She was also a lesbian in a same-sex marriage. When Barb recently told the school about her “nontraditional pregnancy,” they fired her.

Has the Women’s Movement Decreased Happiness?

Hey, ladies, it’s August 26, Equality Day!  Woo-hoo!  How’s it going so far?  In case you are not in the loop, Women’s Equality Day commemorates August 26, 1920 when the right for women to vote became official.  But equality has not rained down happiness on women.
