The story of the Liar & the Jackass

The indoctrination of minds through lies and the dependence on the emotions rather than the mind are great tools utilized by many governments. It is characteristic of liberalism and a morally relativistic society.

Then, when all else fails, when the truth starts surfacing, when people start thinking, then all hell breaks loose, and hypocrisy becomes rife....e.g. the response towards Joe Wilson (R-S.C) and his outburst of "You Lie" vs the response to former President Jimmy Carter's vilification of any body that stands up for the truth as a racist. (Qualifier: While what Wilson said is absolutely true, his method of conveying it was not - he was too much appealing to the emotion - and that's playing evil in its courts - and you're bound to loose if you do so for too long).

Why do I bother with this in this Catholic Blog? I bother because this is an exact portrayal of what evil is. It drags you down with "feel good" blabbing, but then freaks out/goes utterly nuts if the truth is uncovered....And another example of this is the ACORN scandal!!!

So now - dear reader, use your brain, that mush held by the skull, and figure out who the jackass and the liar are yourself.

Enough said - here's some poll data that speak for themselves.

& finally:
TMZ Obtains Obama's 'Jackass' Kanye Diss (in case you wish to find out where the jackass comes in)

I'll probably add more to this when I find time ... so stay posted

God bless; Stand up for the truth & never let it be silenced!!!

Catholics and Abortion - There is NO COMPROMISE!!!

There seems to be a lot of confusion as to what Catholic can accept or not regarding abortion. There are those, especially in politics who speak of compromise.

Let's make one thing clear: THERE IS NO COMPROMISE WITH EVIL. - No matter whose mouth it's coming from, or how beautiful it looks, or how much cream it's got on top of it.... Think of it as manure - no matter how much cream you put on it it will never have pleasant results!!!

Here's what the Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches in relation to abortion - some of this material will also pertain to why embryonic stem cell research is unethical and immoral:

"2271 Since the first century the Church has affirmed the moral evil of every procured abortion. This teaching has not changed and remains unchangeable. Direct abortion, that is to say, abortion willed either as an end or a means, is gravely contrary to the moral law:

You shall not kill the embryo by abortion and shall not cause the newborn to perish. God, the Lord of life, has entrusted to men the noble mission of safeguarding life, and men must carry it out in a manner worthy of themselves. Life must be protected with the utmost care from the moment of conception: abortion and infanticide are abominable crimes.

2272 Formal cooperation in an abortion constitutes a grave offense. The Church attaches the canonical penalty of excommunication to this crime against human life. "A person who procures a completed abortion incurs excommunication latae sententiae," "by the very commission of the offense," and subject to the conditions provided by Canon Law. The Church does not thereby intend to restrict the scope of mercy. Rather, she makes clear the gravity of the crime committed, the irreparable harm done to the innocent who is put to death, as well as to the parents and the whole of society.

2274
Since it must be treated from conception as a person, the embryo must be defended in its integrity, cared for, and healed, as far as possible, like any other human being. Prenatal diagnosis is morally licit, "if it respects the life and integrity of the embryo and the human fetus and is directed toward its safe guarding or healing as an individual. . . . It is gravely opposed to the moral law when this is done with the thought of possibly inducing an abortion, depending upon the results: a diagnosis must not be the equivalent of a death sentence"

2322 From its conception, the child has the right to life. Direct abortion, that is, abortion willed as an end or as a means, is a "criminal" practice (GS 27 § 3), gravely contrary to the moral law. The Church imposes the canonical penalty of excommunication for this crime against human life."

HR 3200 - From health care to extermination care

This post will be continuously updated with any information I can get relating to HR3200. The proposal for a NHS (national health system) here in the US is preposterous. People do not realize what is to come.

As one who has experienced NHS in both Europe and Australia from the inside (i.e. employed within the system), I can vouch that it is NOT what this country needs. It will ruin the health care record this country has. Moreover, a so called health care bill that has provisions for abortion and death counselling is NOT a health care bill but a EUGENICS bill designed to eliminate "undesirables".

1. Let's start by giving a taste of what this type of system is like overseas. Here's an article from the UK newspaper, the Telegraph, in an article called "'Cruel and neglectful' care of one million NHS patients expose".

2. The incoming president of the Canadian Medical Association says that country's system is "sick" Read more in this article "Overhauling health-care system tops agenda at annual meeting of Canada's doctors"

3. From the UK, patients with terminal illnesses are being made to die prematurely under an NHS scheme. Read on... "Sentenced to death on the NHS"


More to come.... stay tuned

God bless

Moral relativism, "newspeak", schizophrenia and split personality - the symptoms and disease in our current administration

Politicians in general appear to suffer from various psychiatric disorders. The list would probably involve writing a book but, suffice it to say that, the gravest of these are schizophrenia - as they are unable to maintain a coherent personality, and split personality - as they appear to be able to be on both sides of an issue at the same time. The current administration appears to excel beyond all expectations in these "capabilities" especially in matters of morality.

They epitomize moral relativism in their ability to support an issue in one place and contradict it in an other - thus an issue becomes relative to where a person is (sounds like Einstein's Theory of Relativity). They personify "newspeak" defined by George Orwell in his book "1984" as "the only language in the world whose vocabulary gets smaller every year" - and this is because they repeat the same words but mean something totally different. And yet we trust our country and ourselves in their hands!!!!

This here is the latest example. This is a quote from President Obama's remarks at the Holocaust Remembrance Day Ceremony. The sources are cited at the end of the quote.

I received this from a friend of mine who did not take credit for the parallel as he said, there are already those who have made this parallel. His comment to me was as follows "A fitting tribute, in my estimation...but does it sound eerily like abortion to you?" I need add no more....read on for yourself!!!

"It is the grimmest of ironies that one of the most savage, barbaric acts of evil in history began in one of the most modernized societies of its time, where so many markers of human progress became tools of human depravity: science that can heal, used to kill; education that can enlighten, used to rationalize away basic moral impulses; the bureaucracy that sustains modern life, used as the machinery of mass death, a ruthless, chillingly efficient system where many were responsible for the killing, but few got actual blood on their hands" (source: The Jewish Standard;Real Clear Politics)

President Obama's address to National Academy of science - Monday 4/27/09

I just received a university email with the President's speech to the National Academy of Science - which I thought would be of interest to at least some. The speech can be accessed from the White House Press Office. I wanted to point towards a few things that struck me, just skimming through it. I had to do this analysis because in my field all of this affects me directly - very directly. Material quoted from the speech is below in non-italicized bold.

He talks about ”...more complex set of challenges” that we are facing “more than we ever have before”; about “...a medical system that holds the promise of unlocking new cures and treatments - attached to a health care system that holds the potential to bankrupt families and businesses...” and ultimately of “Threats to our security that seek to exploit the very interconnectedness and openness so essential to our prosperity." – This begs the question – in reference to research – which is the context he’s talking in – does this mean anybody that disagrees with medical but morally reprehensible “advances” such as Embryonic stem cell research or even people who oppose abortion (especially say in situations where the baby is known to be handicapped) is threatening security that seeks “to exploit the very interconnectedness and openness so essential to our prosperity.”....Is this a veiled reference to condoning eugenics?

Think I’m being paranoid – far from it – I know the mentality of the majority of the people associated with these organizations and MANY (not all) but a very good number – are ready and able to do anything.

His speech is full of contradictions - He mentions how the time for science in the back seat is over; how “Our progress as a nation - and our values as a nation - are rooted in free and open inquiry.” And he seems to forget the stifling that has taken place over and over again of scientists who express their beliefs in God openly. He mentions how undermining “scientific integrity is to undermine our democracy” and yet we can’t be democratic enough to let a child in a womb live!!!!

He talks about charging the White house office of Science and Technology Policy “with leading a new effort to ensure that federal policies are based on the best and most unbiased scientific information. I want to be sure that facts are driving scientific decisions - and not the other way around” – It IS out there regarding embryonic stem cell research vs adult; it’s out there regarding condoms/contraception vs abstinence etc. etc.etc.

And then he has the gaul to bring in morality and truth!!!! He concludes:

"At root, science forces us to reckon with the truth as best as we can ascertain it. Some truths fill us with awe. Others force us to question long held views. Science cannot answer every question; indeed, it seems at times the more we plumb the mysteries of the physical world, the more humble we must be. Science cannot supplant our ethics, our values, our principles, or our faith, but science can inform those things, and help put these values, these moral sentiments, that faith, to work - to feed a child, to heal the sick, to be good stewards of this earth."

This whole paragraph is contradictory and hypocritical – science “reckoning the truth”? Science and humility??? – That’s the TRUTH AND REALITY BEHIND TRUE AND HONEST SCIENCE BUT NOT with this administration or the current leaders at NAS, SFN or other similar organizations. Science and ethics? How can he say that science cannot “supplant” our ethics and values – when he’s giving them the go-ahead, AGAINST ALL EVIDENCE, to say, embark on embryonic stem cell research which goes against both ethics and values!!!!

There is an obstinacy in this speech along with all that this administration is doing. We need to stand up to it, fight it and pray…because ultimately it is an immense moral battle.


God bless America - and have mercy on us all

God bless you all.

The Annihilation of the First Amendment

Update 04/17/09:

The Department of Homeland Security issued the following statement for immediate release dated 4/15/09 - Statement by U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano on the Threat of Right-Wing Extremism.

Please Note in the statement, how IF there is any form of apology it is only the veterans. No mention is made of the other groups targeted and who are NOT IN GENERAL extremists or terrorists.

God bless

Stephen

--------------------------------------
Update 4/16/09:

The Thomas More Law Center (TMLC) filed a Federal Lawsuit against Janet Napolitano over the document from the DHS about Rightwing Extremism. Click here to read complaint.

God bless

Stephen

--------------------------------------
4/16/09

In the past couple of days the Department of Homeland Security issued a document on right-wing extremist groups. This report is very disturbing for a different reason than anyone would suspect. It is explicit in its content and clearly an attack on innate moral fundamentals given to us by our Creator as well as being an attack against the fundamental moral teachings of our faith (which obviously come from our Creator) that are now to be considered as "right-wing extremism". To read click on the following links - one is the original document from the Department of Homeland Security (Regarding abortion, same-sex marriage see pg2 footnote and pg 4 of the document); the other is an independent report about the document.

For many, the right to practice your faith is a given, especially in this country founded on the principles of such intrinsic liberties. For many also, communism and fascism where things we read about - at least for those who bothered to learn history and be aware of what has happened in the world around us in the time history has been documented.

From its institution the United States has been a defender of human rights and liberties, so much so that these values are entwined in the writing of the early fathers as well as the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.

However, things seem to continue turning. Civil liberties, Religious liberties continue to come under attack - an increasing amount of attacks for that matter with each day that passes. It is becoming a crime, or an act of hatred according to the government, to support and believe in the sanctity of life, to believe in the sanctity of marriage......etc etc.

There was a time when all human life was considered sacred. The Catholic Church still does consider it sacred....Many other so called churches continue to water down their beliefs to suit trends rather than teach the truth (case in point Pastor Rick Warren -- author of the multi-million selling book The Purpose Driven Life; pastor of Saddleback, one of the largest churches in the country and deeply influential -- going back on his support of Proposition 8 - which supported marriage as being only that between man and woman). This inability to stand by the truth of many Christians, including many wishy-washy so called Catholics, has has been the reason for this deterioration...Many in our society have contributed to allowing the moral fabric of our society to be eroded - Now there is a price to pay!!!

Now where do you think we're heading.....Oh....for a better idea - read George Orwell's "1984" and "Animal Farm"....Read them quick and wake up!

Politicans Dig Deeper Grave for Our Country

The level of arrogance, selfishness, immorality and outright stupidity is mind boggling!!

It seems like the one job where these attributes are required on your CV, is being a politician, and especially in the current Obama administration.

So first we have a president (Barack Obama) who during the Presidential race says that if his children make the "mistake" of becoming pregnant he would not "want them punished with a baby".[1]

Now we have a person who supposedly calls herself Catholic (but only in her mind - and certainly not in her actions or words, nor in any form of reality) who adds topping to the cake. In an interview with ABC's George Stephanopolous, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told him that "family planning services reduce cost" and proposes this as a solution to the "terrible fiscal crises" in the states and that this would stimulate the economy. Pelosi said that “contraception will reduce costs to the states and to the federal government" [2]

This is the US....yes, not China - with the one child policy, not Nazi Germany with the elimination of the undesirables - but we're nearly there! Next we will be hearing how many children we're supposed to have, and penalizing those who have more. We'll have people being forced to abort babies (Planned Parenthood already does this) for one reason or another that the state deems appropriate. Oh.... how about forced male and female sterilization?

Where are we heading people? Where are the intelligent people of this country? ANYBODY OUT THERE? We are heading so far away from where the fathers of this nation wanted it to be and nobody budges an eyelid? All the things I mentioned above, the Nazis did in the interest of the fatherland, of preserving and creating a superior race....and now we're doing them under the guise of the "interest of the economic situation"!!!

It seems like the words in the Declaration of Independence[3] do not stand or mean anything anymore - as we have come to a point where we have no respect for the values it speaks about, nor do we have a people that is ready to institute a government that respects such values, or a people that is ready to remove a government that does not!

This country, like the rest of the world, has now started spiralling itself into oblivion. Unless things change, and quickly, the United States as we know it, will become a thing of the past. This country is headed, without a doubt, towards utter self destruction at the current rate. I can confidently say that unless things change quickly, the markets have not seen the true meaning of rock bottom yet, and there will be NO recovery under this government and while they will seek to blame it on G.W. Bush, there will be nobody else to blame but the current administration. No country that chooses to destroy its own children, to not adhere to the laws given to us by our Creator, and seeks to undermine the moral fabric that holds its people together can ever survive. This was the demise of the Roman empire, of the royalty in France, and of the Romanovs in Russia. We are now obeserving the demise of this great nation. As Pope John Paul II said it becomes a nation without hope. The consequences of this are dire in a Godless society. Hopelessness leads to despair and despair to self destruction.

So much for the hope this country provided to many in the world! History repeats itself but we choose to not learn....at our and our children's cost !!! As Einstein is quoted to have said "Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe"

So WAKE UP AMERICA, before you're in an irreversible state called "dead" and let's pray for this country, its people and its politicians, and that God will have mercy upon us and spare us from more destruction and in His own wisdom and way remove those who seek to continue proposing, enacting and enforcing laws that are immoral, destructive, senseless, abhorrent and contrary to His Divine Laws (and to the founding pillars of this country itself).

God Bless (+)

[3] http://www.ushistory.org/declaration/document/index.htm - "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security" (my emphasis)

Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) - the hypocrisy within this great Act of Injustice

We are on the brink of a cataclysm...what will it ever take to wake us up???!!!

The hypocrisy of this law, if enacted and what most people do not seem to realize, is that it is not only outright immoral, inhumane but also goes against the very essence of the foundation of this country. I will not say much. The aim of this blog is more to refer people to appropriate sites and references and encourage people to contact their representatives to urge them to stand firm against it.

Let's just take the first paragraph as an example of how full of flaws this law is...If they can't get this right - how can they get the rest of the document right?!!!!

Paragraph 1 of FOCA states "(1) The United States was founded on the principles of individual liberty, personal privacy, and equality. Such principles ensure that each individual is free to make the most intimate decisions free from governmental interference and discrimination."

The Declaration of Independence states "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

So this law is going to:

1. snuff out a life - there goes one unalienable right (Life)
2. force medics/hospitals to carry out abortions against their conscience and belief - there goes Liberty
3. The post-abortion psychological side-effects are endless - there goes many a woman's Happiness

Oh....and I forgot - if these liberties mentioned above are gone down the drain, Equality will go down with them!!

On top of that, the government is forcing US to finance this when we disagree with it, not allow us as parents to be rightfully informed of what our children are doing, promoting irresponsible behavior instead of encouraging responsibility- So much for liberty and freedom....That is communism for you not the democracy we pretend to be so proud of!!

I thought humans spoke through their oral cavity....How could such despicable trash originating from anywhere but the oral cavity, and lacking any form of intellectual or moral spine be understood as meaning good?!!!

Wake up America before you annihilate yourself!!

Oh...and if you think this is religious bias...Think one moment....how you'd like it if your own mother took the "choice" and killed you in her womb!!! You'd be really doing a lot ha???!!!

Here's where you can read more (I'll continue adding as I find more):
