Why do black pastors always seem to politicize their sermons. Why does everything seem to refer to slavery and race? Do they ever speak about sin and offenses to God, or is just slavery the only sin in their vocabulary. Borish……won’t get you to heaven, sorry.
What about all those aborted black babies the black culture seems to accept as OK. Do these pastors ever preach about about the sin of abortion?

The Pope is only infallible in faith and morals. And this is rare, and must be done in a solemn way, a definitive manner.
Infallibility is a complicated and much argued topic within the Church.

You have this right! Just like Obama, he was touted as a new personality that would bring a fresh approach to the Church and how the world viewed her. Just like Obama, the world is finding out how wacked out he is. There are back door politics in the Church just like what happens in the rest of the world. Deals were made, promises given if only this Pope was elected. He was supposed to be elected by men who had prayed to the Holy Ghost for guidance, but I think something else was evoked that day and it wasn’t the Holy Ghost. At any rate, it is what it is. And Catholics need to wake up and learn their Faith. They need to call out corruption and condemn error.
It is not wrong to stand up to a wayward pope and corrupt bishops/priests. If the bishops won’t do it, then it is up to the layman to do it. It is our duty and responsibility as the Church Militant.
We have to respect the office, but call out the man.
St. Athanasius, pray for us!!

This encyclical is not a dogmatic pronouncement. Catholics are not mandated to believe it. Only to study and think upon it. Nothing more.
Catholics who have been paying attention to what has been happening in the Church the last 50+ years, are aware that the Church has been hijacked by Communists.
Check out the following link: http://www.churchpop.com/2015/05/01/former-soviet-spy-we-created-liberation-theology/
For those who doubt the Church’s teaching on self defense, read what it actually teaches: http://www.usccb.org/beliefs-and-teachings/what-we-believe/catechism/catechism-of-the-catholic-church
Go to: CHAPTER TWO “YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF”
Read paragraphs 2238 – 2243 carefully. The Church supports ARMED RESISTANCE in certain conditions.
And it supports civil disobedience when the citizen is forced to choose between obeying God laws or man’s. God’s laws always come first.
The Catholic Church must be the true Church if every political hack, heretic, and despot want to destroy her. These kind of attacks only come from the devil. We don’t see this type of hate being directed towards other Christian faiths or other religions.
The Pope is being mislead and used by others. Men can be corrupted, their weaknesses taken advantaged upon. But it doesn’t mean the Catholic Faith is wrong. The gates of hell will not prevail against it, even if there are evil people on the inside of the Church trying to open them.

I honored the lives of those killed in Charleston, by taking my sons shooting and teaching them the rules on handling a firearm. I also explained that racism is wrong. Someday, they may have
to defend their life and their families, and owning and knowing how to use a gun would help
in that defense. By the way, I’m a mom and have a concealed carry license.

The rosary beads are not a necklace. It is a sacramental, used for praying and keeping track of the prayers said during the praying of the Rosary. Apparently, this young man was not taught how to treat the rosary. The policeman should have asked him to say the prayers of the rosary and its history, also to what Catholic parish be belonged. And….priests in areas where there is a lot of gang activity should be telling their congregations not to wear the rosary…they should be praying it instead. Teach their parishioners something about their faith. But, the ones wearing the rosary probably aren’t going to church.
If the teen really wanted to honor his brother, then he should be acting respectfully towards the police, living a virtuous life, and praying the rosary everyday, especially for the soul of his brother. He should be and exceptional student, have excellent grades, humble, respectful towards his superiors/parents and elders.
The policeman shouldn’t assume that because the rosary is being worn around the neck, the person is a gang member. It is terrible that the gangbanger types have highjacked the rosary and Our Lady of Guadalupe picture as some sort of “identity”. Sorry, Hispanics, if you really want to hang on to your “Catholic identity”, then learn your faith first.

Gee, I see ole Billy H. is stirring up the anti-Catholic hate again.
And the article is from the Deseret press, a Mormon publication.
Ex-Catholics are the worst haters…..
Don’t you haters have anything else better to do than attack Catholics?

He is growing old….and needs some “controversial comment” to bring him back
in the public eye again…..thanks to the Blaze.

Yes, church leaders will answer to God someday for their abuses….but these abuses does
not mean that the FAITH is false. Stop making judgements based on feelings and do
learn your faith. Stand up for it and confront the bad bishops, priests and others who
warp the truth. Fight for the Church…don’t let corrupt people ruin it. We are the Church
Militant. We are supposed to stand up to the evil in the world in and out of the Church.
Don’t wait for the Pope to act….we’ve had strong popes and weak popes. They are human just like you and make mistakes, become tempted to abuse power….just like the rest of humanity. Stop listening to the nay sayers and learn your FAITH….and not from the
liberal, pablum gorged social justice milktoasts either. Being a Catholic means a lifetime
of educating yourself and growing your Faith and knowledge. Don’t give up on her.

You spend way to much time in your Friday night Masonic/Demonic meetings…it has warped your mind and your ability to think rationally. Get out more.
The Catholic Faith is the true Faith. Unfortunately, there has been rotten leaders and priests….just like every other human run institution on earth. But the Faith is true and doesn’t tell Catholics to molest children.
In regards to Mr. Petty, I think he is suffering from severe hair dye poisoning…too much
substance abuse over the years.

So does this mean that Bl. John Paul II Consecration of Russia to Our Lady of Fatima didn’t really
happen after all? If he had actually mentioned Russia instead of the ‘world’ in 1984, then we might not be in this predicament. And the conspiracy continues.
Yes. "Blessed?" Hardly. And no: It wasn't valid, since he did not hold firm to the teachings of the Universal Church. ("Catholic" derives from the Greek "catholikos." It means "universal.")
Anyway, "as Rome falls, so falls the world." Even Protestants of good will have asked me (a traditional Catholic) about his behavior.
He just "progressed" the agenda of the Communist radicals that infiltrated the Church, and used the Rosary as a pretense rather than a devotion. And now we have Francis--an admirer of Marxism.
For a little insight into what and how it happened, read Bella Dodd's "School of Darkness" (it's on Internet).
God bless you for asking.

Sorry that the teens were hurt. But it appears God wasn’t too happy with the girls dancing in their
underwear at a boys school…..
What the heck were the Catholic schools’ parents, teachers and administrators thinking?
Come on….!!!!!! Literally, a new “low”.

Unfortunately, it is a phenomenon in that some folks actually defend the criminal and blame the
victim….makes one wonder what else is going on in this town that the citizens would protect
this vile creature so much. I would probably bet that there are more people involved in raping
children and pedophilia and or sodomy than is being investigated. Small towns have big secrets.
Any parent in that town who would send their children to school there knowing that their children are
potential targets for rapists (of mind and body…) are evil themselves.
I keep asking,……anyone want to go in on a business creating mill stones?
Sodomy and rape of children…. sins that cry out to heaven for vengeance.

@ John of Oregon… what did Snowden download?
I think he has info on our president, which most of the congress knows about and would be
complicit with if they were tried in court. Info that would bring down his presidency and nullify any laws passed since he became president and perhaps laws other previous presidents, too. And the big wigs in the media know this info too, and have been covering it up for years. Yep….what does Snowden know about that most of the embedded politicians and turn coats want him literally dead for? Time to start looking at members of both parties who have gone way out there to want him found and “gone”…and what policies these guys have been supporting. There is always a trail.
And why the sudden n.s.a. activity?…..something big is going on behind the scenes, and part of it is to seek and destroy anyone who might know anything about the leaks and related activities and shut them up, even if it means terrorizing the general public to do it and killing some as examples.

Ah Eugene. Lived there 15 years. Worked for law enforcement.
This policeman showed great restraint. There is always more to the story than is what is reported, especially in child custody cases. And it is always the police who are called to clean up the mess
created by the parents (who probably shouldn’t have procreated in the first place.)
The police there are always under scrutiny because of the communist/secularist/anarchist mindset
fostered by decades of Grateful Deadhead tie-die U of O graduates/and card carrying commie profs now retiring baby-boomer types. Never a year goes by that someone doesn’t try to sue the police for something.
When college is back in session, the town looks forward to the riots and destruction caused by college brats who never had their butts whipped by their rich self absorbed parents. This is anarchist heaven, where one can find more anarchy groups who can’t figure out what to agree upon. Let’s not forget the anti-government types who form para-military groups and the environmentalists who worship the earth and everything wacked out and weird and tried to implement Agenda 21 with the help of the local power company.
Yes, Eugene in the summer time and all the time.
Your ideal progressive community.

I believe this was Fr. Mourad…based on that he was wearing a brown robe/cassock of the Franciscan
order…and he was bald, the ears, nose, and eyebrows look like the picture above….and the above
picture could have been from a few years ago…
At any rate, he is a martyr for the Faith and is now a saint.
This is the video.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WnY_F9o3WR8 And to think..we have been receiving 10 thousand muslims per month plus tens of thousands by executive order and are most likely going to receive by executive order..70K of these Syrian Satanist heathen into the US..This is who the president and our illuninati government is backing..Is there really any question as to why they have brought and are bringing them here?..NSA is using US tax dollars to spy on private citizens and churches while the CIA has scrubbed anything offensive to muslims off the terror watch list. In Tennessee..Imams in Mosques are teaching that Jews and Christians are filthy and that it is okay to take their lives and their property by Jihad.. http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/06/tennessee-imam-jews-and-christians-filthy-their-lives-and-property-can-be-taken-in-jihad-by-the-musl.html Just last April..46 senators voted to give away our second amendment rights to the UN..They were all dems with one IN.

Stupid teacher for assigning such a “topic” and appearing so trusting…
Idiot man for focusing on his manhood, and writing about his “true” feelings….
We get what we deserve as a country? What does that have to do with this? I don't feel like I deserve to have my constitution torn to shreds because of this guys generation -- the baby boomer generation. I don't feel like the country deserves it either because there are so many perverts and brainwashed 60's acid freaks in high positions of power.
Huh, stupid teacher? It was a totally normal assignment. The student was very inappropriate. If you can stand it, read his essay, it is a total come-on to the teacher.

When I was young, my cousins and I used to “make” our own UFO’s by gluing two pie plates together, (or gluing two Chinet papaer plates) and then take turns throwing them in the air like a Frizbee. Another one of us would take pictures with an old Polariod camera. The pics were always just blurry enough to make out something weird, but not enough to not make someone else think
that this wasn’t a UFO. Made for great fun on a boring summer day.
But on the other hand, I’ve seen strange things in the air flying around over 1000′a of feet up, that couldn’t be explained by physics or comparing pictures of military aircraft with it. Diabolic.
