How could they? Looking at the undercover videos exposing the horrifying reality of all that comes with abortion, it’s a burning question. How could human beings callously kill and cut up babies; some with hearts still beating? Our beliefs may be polar opposites, but our prayers can be fueled with compassion if we understand why they sit in the enemy camp.

Listening to the Gospel this morning at Mass—because Catholics are all about the Bible and Church authority—(1Timothy 3:15)—I was struck by Jesus’ missed opportunity.

Dear U.S. Senators,
If you support Planned Parenthood, then you have immersed yourself in lies to support the #1 baby killer in this country—330,000 babies on average killed annually. Honesty is not an option for you because even liberal voters might flinch if you admitted the truth: I don’t care that babies are killed in the womb so why should I care if they are cut up and sold?

A largely horrified public has watched five videos on the selling of aborted babies—sacrificed to the gods of “scientific research.” The heartless defenders of their dismemberment for sale, claim that it contributes to “life-saving research.”

they are not Catholic, but the story is quite amazing.
Foreli Kramarik the mother of the acclaimed child prodigy, Akiane, was raised as an atheist in communist Lithuania. Religion was viewed, as unsophisticated--intelligent people did not fall for such wishful thinking.

In Oregon, the beaver state, it is actually legal to be dumber than a beaver. Since January, it’s also legal for teens as young as 15 to have sex change operations paid for by the state and without parental permission. Beavers can do better than that.
Adolescence is intended to be outgrown, not a time for making permanent, life altering decisions. Research shows that the prefrontal cortex of a teen is not fully mature. Since it is the part of the brain that governs judgments, it has been dubbed "the area of sober second thought." After 4 meetings in 2014, the transgender policy was discussed by the Oregon Health Authority and passed without opposition. There is no proof that they weren’t all drunk at the time.

Is the Catholic Church dead? After all, it is not been able to stem the tide against traditional marriage in such places as the United States and the once-very-Catholic Ireland. Even many Catholics are ignoring her teachings.
“Many are saying the Church is dead or on life support,” Fr. John Riccardo pastor of Our Lady of Good Counsel in Plymouth, MI said during his homily on the heels of the Supreme Court’s legalization of same-sex marriage.

It might be an exaggeration to say that grasshoppers changed our family’s life. However, at least one of our 10 kids believes that by making room for grasshoppers in his life rather than sitting in front of a TV or video screen, his childhood was much richer. Pope Francis would agree.

“Do you think Catholics are Christian?” It was a question posed by a listener to a Christian, non-Catholic radio host. I had inadvertently tuned in on my car radio while driving from Minn. back home to North Dakota.
“Hang on and I’ll respond to your question after the break,” the host said.
