    If you look through American and world history, unfortunately abortion is nothing new. Since forever, legal or not women were taking herbal mixtures to end pregnancies. Other methods include keeping a woman’s corset tied extremely tight until the unborn baby died. There were also women who would go around and terminate pregnancies with coils, and advertise their services in local newspapers in the 1800s. Naturally, many mothers died from these procedures and they were subsequently used as poster girls to push for legalized abortion in the 1900s. Interestingly enough, more women die from the complications of abortion today than did before it became legal.

    The only silver lining in Roe V. Wade is that for the first time in history, Catholics and other Christians have been gathering in large numbers on the Washington Mall in the middle of winter, as well as forming nationwide organizations to expose the true evil of abortion, supported by medical and scientific evidence that human life begins at conception, and try to educate people about the evil of what is going on in the abortion mills. Many people are alive today because of the pro-life movement’s heroic efforts! In spite of the evil all around us, we are a light in the darkness and I can only imagine that God is well pleased with our efforts and sacrifices.

    If you want to read about how we lost so many religious in the Catholic Church, and how we ended up with the lukewarm Catholics and corrupt clergy, read this article written by Dr. William Coulson, who is a repentant psychiatrist and details exactly how he and a colleague systematically destroyed religious orders in the 1960′s and 1970′s with humanistic psychology @ https://www.ewtn.com/library/PRIESTS/COULSON.TXT. It is a very sad eye opener and a must read for any Catholic who recalls the Church pre Vatican II.
    The Jesuits were also affected by their efforts which may help to explain the, shall we say “holes” in this pontiff’s formation. We need to pray for the conversion of this pope!
    As a Catholic, it is my job to educate myself and follow the Traditions of the Catholic Church and her teachings. Even if all the religious are corrupt, I can still follow the Truth of the faith and not be lost along with them. The beauty of this faith is that we have a 2,000 year old Tradition, founded by the apostles who were with Christ, and countless dogmas and teachings which have been settled by various councils that cannot be changed, even by the pope. The Catechism of the Catholic Church is a spiritual jackpot and explains everything very clearly, including the Church’s teachings on procreation.

    For anyone who may be struggling with infertility, I want you to know that there are natural methods for correcting many of the problems that lead to infertility called NAPRO Technology, through Creighton NFP. It is a method approved by the Catholic Church and has healed many women and brought many babies into the world. As a former Creighton teacher, I can personally attest to the good that NAPRO has done to not only bring babies into the world, but to the healing of countless women who have gone otherwise undiagonsed with hormonal or structural issues, who have been offered only the pill as a “solution” to all their problems.

    Man playing God does not make God twisted; it is man who wishes to dominate God that is twisted. God allows us to use our free will to make decisions, and we are free to decide good or bad. We also have to deal with the consequences of our actions. God did not plan, nor does He will that babies be conceived in a petri dish. We are now in uncharted territory and no one knows where this will stop. How dare we expect that God put aside His order in nature, and make our demands for children under our terms work out and then blame Him when something goes wrong!!

    Tragically, this outcome has no happy ending; motherless children who are born premature and will now struggle to survive and a family devastated by the loss.

    Yes, these people are pathetic and it is sad that such inept people are running our lives and we can’t seem to get rid of them. Term limits may help, but for genuine reform we need to turn to God. Sadly, we get the politicians and religious leaders, that we deserve and we are a nation that is attracted to arrogance and sin, so is it really any surprise that we’ve got the leaders that we have? Unfortunately, both church leaders and politicians are weak and caving into the modern humanistic psychology that all but eliminates God and teaches one to live for the moment with no thought of preparation for death. This form of psychology has infested our nation and churches over the past 100 years and includes the progressive movement which also began at that time.
    However, Americans need to wake up and reform their own lives through genuine prayer, fasting and by rejecting all that is unholy. Those of us who stand with God understand His laws and must reform our own lives and abide by his laws and live in the place of His love – love meaning to sacrifice all that is unholy and living our lives and pointing out the narrow road to God. God will help us as a nation if we do these things and our light of purity will be seen by all and the darkness of sin will be destroyed. Only then will common sense and God’s laws prevail; until then, He will continue to say “fine, do it your way and let’s see what happens”. We need to stop waiting for politicians to do get in their and naively wave their majic wands and fix everything for us!

    This story reminds me of St.Gianna Beretta Molla who accepted death at age 39 rather than submit to treatment that would result in the abortion of her unborn child. Her daughter lived and became a doctor. Her husband and children were at her canonization by Pope St.John PauI II on May 16, 2004 and met with the Pope during the ceremony. I will never forget the image of radiating joy from this family as they watched their wife and mother being declared a saint.

    Tragedies such as hers and the abortion culture that murdered of over 55 million unborn people continue to echo the mantra “It’s MY body, MY choice!”. What people should be reminding those who are faced with death and illness is that suffering unites us to Christ’s Passion in His salvific sufferings for the world. This a mystery which is not ours to understand, but to be embraced with trust in God who NEVER abandons us.

    Our bodies are not our own; we are temples of the Holy Spirit; created beings made in the Image and Likeness of God made to know Him, love Him, and serve Him and be happy with him forever in heaven. As the Author of Life, He brings us into the world at the moment of His choosing, and takes us from this world at the moment of His choosing; otherwise, the soul at risk for eternal damnation which is suffering beyond what you can think of or imagine. Hell is real and Our Lord warned us about it over and over again. He is pure love and His love is a great mystery for us to contemplate here on earth, and understand in heaven; assuming we allow Him to be Lord of our lives. The mystics of the Catholic Church, such as St. Teresa of Avila wrote in the Way of Perfection and St. John of the Cross’ Dark Night of the Soul have detailed this process of transformation. However, we tend to fall in love with ourselves and refuse this process, which requires that we learn to let go of the illusions of this world and allow God to transform us into holiness.

    I stopped watching Fox after Glenn left that time slot, and after the last presidential election I was done with them and moved exclusively to The Blaze for my news source. As for Bob Beckel, I don’t know why Fox keeps him there. This isn’t the first time he’s done something like this, and they laugh it off as no big deal. I’ll bet if one of the prominent, more conservative people did something like that more than once they’d be fired.

    Suicide is the final slap in the face to God, the Creator of your very life, and a victory for the devil who relishes in the loss of souls. What good came of this? A young girl has defiantly ended her life, in the limelight of a culture of death, which cannot seem to get enough of death, and as a result has spread scandal to our society. She has much to answer for.

    Jesus told St. Faustina in her Divine Mercy Diary this passage which I think may be good to think about going forward with this unnecessary “debate”:

    I want your last moments to be completely similar to Mine on the cross. There is but one price at which souls are bought, and that is suffering united to My suffering on the cross. Pure love understands these words; carnal love will never understand them (Divine Mercy Diary, 324) .

    St. Faustina’s Prayer Response:
    Jesus, may Your love help me to offer my sufferings in union with Your sufferings on the cross for the salvation of souls. May my last moments be similar to Yours on the cross. All for the love of souls, Lord!

    The Church teaches that the sufferings here on earth are nothing compared to the sufferings in Purgatory (which is temporary) and hell (which is eternal). Many saints have written about Purgatory and hell such as St. John Bosco, St. Faustina, the Fatima children, et al. We would be wise to read their accounts. In His Mercy, God gave them these experiences as reminders in our humanistic culture that these places do exist and souls do go there.

    My two cents is that this couple, who is facing insanity with all of this persecution should NOT take the money from this guy. Why don’t Blaze readers start a fund for them instead? It’s time we all put our money where our mouths are and stand up for eachother when times like this arise. I’m sure everyone pulling together could out donate this guy in 2 days.

    Maybe Jesus, Son of God and Second Person of the Holy Trinity didn’t say anything about homosexuality, but then again we don’t know that for sure, since everything Jesus said was NOT recorded in the bible. That said, there is plenty to say about it in the Old Testament, spoken by God the Father starting with Adam and Eve. God created Eve for Adam since he found no other suitable mate, and it goes on from there. Then Jesus came and the New Testament began. The Son of God fulfilled all that God the Father had spoken through the prophets. Jesus’ life was an example for us all to follow. He came into the world with a Mother and Father, and even His Mother Mary had parents named Joachim and Anna. He also attended the Wedding at Cana which was a marriage between a man and a woman. In fact, that was the very place that He performed His first miracle by turning water into wine, at the request of His Mother as the couple ran out.

    If you do pull your kids from public or private school, here is a good guideline. For every year they were at school, it will take a month of homeschooling for them to adjust to the new environment. So if they went to school for 5 years, plan on at least 5 months at home before they get the hang of it.
    FYI, most (not all) Catholic schools have sold out, and purchase some of their books with government money which means they are purchasing non-Catholic books and can no longer produce the solid Catholic education they once did. Not to mention, many of the people teaching in Catholic schools are not even Catholic, which is a problem when you’re trying to teach Catholicism, and the tuition costs and fundraisers can be very high since these people need to be paid salaries vs. the nuns who taught very effectively for free.
    I’ve tried both private and Catholic schools and I have to say that homeschooling has trumped both methods of education. The public schools are a cesspool of evil and chock full of agendas in which the parents usually have NO say over.

    As for socialization, there are kids who are awkward that go to public schools, private schools and homeschoolers. The only difference with homeschooled kids, is that if you have a socially awkward child they will not experience 12 years of torment by their peers for not fitting into the government’s idea of the perfect child.

    I’m responding to the comment about the Church and amnesty. Illegal Immigration is evil theologically because every illegal alien commits mortal sin by breaking two of the Ten Commandments: “Thou shalt not lie,” and “Thou shalt not steal.” It is evil socially because it breaks up families in the country of origin; it exploits the illegal aliens themselves in terms of wages and benefits; it deprives legitimate citizens of jobs; it increases the tax burden on taxpayers; and it brews a support system of criminal activity, such as assault, rape, and murder. And, let us not forget, it is evil civilly because it is illegal. Remember, Saint Paul told us to be obedient to authority, because “whoever resists authority opposes what God has appointed, and those who oppose it will bring judgment upon themselves” (Romans 13:2).

    Yawn. This discussion goes absolutely nowhere with those who refuse to hear or see truth, but I can’t help but comment. A human zygote/fetus/embryo is a human being, not a potential human being; thus it is a human being in the first of the human developmental stages. Is a baby, toddler, teenager, young adult, middle aged person, elderly, a handicap person, etc. not human either because they are in that particular phase of human existence? To deny humanity at any stage means that there is an agenda to call that person less than human because of a death agenda they are trying to impose on them which is pure evil.

    If a woman were pregnant with a potential human being, then women would have the potential to give birth to all sorts of species, plants, etc. Other species could potentially give birth to human babies as well with this logic. When was the last time a woman gave birth to anything but a human? So knowing this truth, and trying to get around the truth, the word ‘choice’ comes into play and anything goes, including massacre by the millions with so many refusing to acknowledge the murder that is going on. Bottom line is, the supreme court has stolen the right to play God and decide who will live and die, and have trumped God’s laws against murder in regards to the weakest of human life. Not to mention they have trumped the state’s rights to govern themselves. We are now looking at killing our elderly in the name of ‘choice’ and misguided death with compassion.

    Why is she informing everyone that she will kill herself and making this such a public issue? People have been doing this since the beginning of time with or without society blessings. America’s very purpose is to protect human life, so this euthanasia movement – like abortion, is not what we’re about.

    From an eternal point of view she might want to think twice about taking her own life. The Church teaches that the worst of all sufferings we may endure here on earth are NOTHING compared to that of hell, which is eternal or Purgatory which is the same fire as that of hell, but a temporary place of purgation to all earthly attachment to sin. By the way, the Church teaches that you only go to Purgatory if you die in the state of grace but still have sins to atone for.

    Parents take note: if your child’s pediatrician insists on talking to your child without you being in the room, find a new pediatrician. I left a group of Children’s Hospital pediatricians after 18 years of using them because of their ‘new policy’ of doing this. They can prescribe birth control pills, tests, procedures, etc. without you having any input or knowledge of what is going on. That is communism, and they do not have the moral right to do this; although in some states (such as Massachusetts) they may have a legal right to do it.

    I knew where you meant, Cavallo!
    They are doing this kind of thing every day; to the young and the old. I live here in Mass. and the countless social programs they have developed only cater to the pocketbooks and ego trips of those employed into them which is devoid of common sense. The programs are designed to protect the butts and jobs of those who run them, but the poor souls who have no choice but to use the programs, are put into a very harmful system that doesn’t work.

    I happened to watch the show and he said that the left was not up in arms when the occupy wall street groups did their thing, including taking over parts of Washington DC that you need a permit to occupy, as well as the rapes, drug use, loss to property through vandalism. In fact, Nancy Pelosi was praising them. However, they (Harry Reid, et al) are being very outspoken about the Bundy situation and have called them domestic terrorists. Also, I thought from the interview that It seemed Brit Hume was siding with Harry Reid while O’Reilly was doing a good job pointing out the left’s silence with the occupy group.

    Please remind me again, why does anyone using the public schools to indoctrinate your children? Homeschooling is such a wonderful endeavor for your children, strengthens the family bond and removes your child from the devastating effects of stealing their precious faith by fools like this lunch person. We are all going to be held responsible to God for the way we raise our children. Knowing what we all know about the public schools, can any of us send our children there in good conscience?

    Well here we go again….
    Catholics confess their sins to a priest, who is Jesus representative on Earth (recall the Mass of the Lord’s Supper on Holy Thursday). It is Jesus who absolves the sin through the ordinated hands of the priest. Jesus told Peter – who was the 1st Pope “Whatever you bound on earth is bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth is loosed in heaven.”
    Depending on what protestant bible you read, you will get different versions of the need to confess sins to those ordained by Jesus vs. any other person. However, if you read an authentic original bible such as the New Jerusalem Bible, and read up on the Catechism of the Catholic Church, you will understand where confession comes from.
    Confession frees you from your sins and gives you the grace to overcome them. I’d be willing to bet that there are many ‘psychological’ problems out there that would be cured almost immediately by a good confession, and spiritual direction that only a priest can give.

    FYI, in case anyone is interested, Divine Mercy Sunday is the Sunday after Easter, and falls on 4/27 this year. Jesus promised to St. Faustina in the Divine Mercy Diary that anyone who confesses their sins to a priest, goes to Holy Mass and receives Holy Communion on that day will have all their sins forgiven and the remission of sins granted. It is a freeby for anyone who has been away from the Church, or led a life steeped in mortal sin and desires to be united once again to the Catholic

    To Kryptonite: Don’t be so hard on Pope Pius XII. The Nazis made him a prisoner in the Vatican during that time and had several plots to even kill him and make the Vatican a German museum. It was one of Hitler’s major goals. Still, Pope Pius did what he could for the local residents and took in many Jewish residents in Rome and hid them from the Nazis, risking the nuns and priests who lived there. I won’t go into much detail here for the sake of space, but if I were you I would watch the new video about him for more information. Oh, and by the way, there was a play in the 1960′s which made up many of the questions you have and many took this play as fact without doing their research on what really happened. Hope this helps.
