I often wonder what our country would be like if we went back to the days when journalists and newspapers actually reported the news and were not ‘bought’ minions of the Democratic Party. Perhaps, a time when the voters were not quite so gullible in believing the first thing they hear on the drive-by media news and they could make all sides of the opinion stand up and think, argue, and productively come to a conclusion. We have been spoon-fed too much and it shows in the views and attitudes of the upcoming generation of college students who need a safe place to process instead of the guts to make a decision based on facts. We need to put real history courses back into the schools instead of the watered down, politically correct versions so we don’t continually repeat the worst of the past.
“If the baby in the womb can be sucked out and left dead, with healthcare workers coerced to perform the hideous procedure and all of us forced to pay for it; if the physically challenged and mentally depressed can pay their doctor to put them to death; …Am I wrong to wonder especially about the toxic effect that the unlimited abortion license has had on the Republic founded on self-evident truths, and the right to life? When what should be nature’s safest sanctuary, the mother’s womb, becomes the most perilous place for the most innocent and fragile life, should we be shocked when any life deemed “in the way” is in hunting season?”
Just ordered my labels for my Christmas Shoebox donations! The best part was getting to have an excuse to hang around the toy section to find dolls, cars, and all sorts of fun little items to stuff in my four boxes – two for boys and two for girls.
There is so much joy on the faces of the children who receive these treasure chest boxes of goodies prepared just for them. I’m thinking our children would grow up with more awareness of what is of value in life if we put more into what Christmas is actually about and a shoe box each for their Christmas!
Not how I’d like to be remembered as pope.
For those of you who think your Catholic vote doesn’t count or matters little who you decide to vote for, you aren’t listening to what is planned for Catholics depending on who is ultimately elected. If you vote by way of your own, personal feelings rather than in line with Church teachings, a lot of Sunday Catholics may get a real wake up call in the pews that might turn them into prayer warriors only after the war is in full force.
“Be wary of candidates who assume to take upon themselves the role of defining what Catholics believe or should believe, unfortunately, the vice presidential debate revealed that the Catholic running for the second highest office in our land is an orthodox member of his party, fully embracing his party’s platform, but a cafeteria Catholic, picking and choosing the teachings of the Catholic Church that are politically convenient.” Archbishop Joseph Naumann of Kansas City, Kansas
“It is ironic that Senator Kaine expressed such profound concern about imposing his religious beliefs on others, while supporting efforts:
1) to coerce the Little Sisters of the Poor and other faith-based ministries to violate their conscience by including abortifacients, contraceptives and sterilizations in their employee health plans.
2) to put small business owners (e.g., florists, bakers, photographers, etc.) out of business with crippling fines if they decline to participate in same-sex marriage ceremonies.
3) to force every American taxpayer to help fund abortion.”
Archbishop Joseph Naumann of Kansas City, Kansas
Archbishop Samuel J. Aquila said that when Catholics stop being Catholic, “the government will step in to fill the void. Indeed, the government will become ‘god’ and impose its beliefs on the citizens.”
Archbishop Aquila also stated in a diocesan article that voting for a Democratic candidate would be the same as selling out Christ and our Fathers in Faith.
“Some, both in politics and in the Church, have stated that it is the Church that needs to change Her teaching to include abortion, same-sex unions and even euthanasia,” he said. “Yet, in faithfulness to Jesus Christ, to the Gospel and to Sacred Tradition, the Church cannot change Her teaching on these issues without denying Christ.”
His Excellency Charles J. Chaput sent a message to his flock warning them that Hillary Clinton is a “scheming, robotic liar with a lifelong appetite for power and an entourage riddled with anti-Catholic bigots.”
Excellency Charles J. Chaput shares an e-mail he received from a non-Catholic attorney who stated these ‘bigots are actively strategizing how to shape Catholicism not to be Catholic.”
“They are, at the very core, trying to turn religion to their secular view of right and wrong consistent with their politics,’ he quotes. ‘We have political actors trying to orchestrate a coup to destroy Catholic values, and they even analogize their takeover to a coup in the Middle East, which amplifies their bigotry and hatred of the Church.”
