Pope´s Unselfish Choice Gives
Church Chance For New Voices

Investor´s Business Daily, by E.. J. Dionne

Original Article

Posted By:Emerson, 2/11/2013 10:56:16 PM

Pope Benedict´s resignation shouldn´t have surprised us as much as it did. As an institutionalist who believes in the Roman Catholic Church as the carrier of truth in a sinful world, he would worry a great deal about the impact of his own infirmities on the institution´s capacity to thrive. He is a traditionalist who was nonetheless much affected by modernity. He would therefore not be troubled that he had to reach far back to find a precedent for papal resignation.

The fact Dionne of the Bloody Hands is so enthusiastic tells you all you need to know. The pro-abortion wing of the Church is salivating at the opportunity to exert more pressure on future popes by quoting the Benedict example, and also if possible to take it over right now. Note Mr. Dionne: if Benedict dies of a broken heart for what his successor does, this precedent will not have credibility to future popes. Bear it in mind. And don´t bother trying to clarify that you are privately pro-life. It doesn´t matter at all.

Shouldn´t the word of G-d be the same today as tomorrow and not bend with the wind ?

That was my first thought also #3.

It´s beyond a sickening feeling that we could wind up with a pro abortion,pro gay new pope.My guess is a lot of people would leave the church if that happened and that would make the left deliriously happy.

Catholics do not believe the Holy Spirit inspires the selection of a pope. We believe the Holy Spirit protects the pope from teaching error ex cathedra. When the pope makes a formal statement ex cathedra, from the seat of Peter the Holy Spirit protects him from teaching error. There may have been three occasions in history that this has happened. The pundits are babbling nonsense as usual. There has not been a single intelligent thing said or written about the resignation.

Lightning strikes St Peters. What a sign. I lookup to the Catholic Church and it´s stand for religious freedom in the U.S. The protesant movement in the US is almost dead. Not one of the Protesant Churches are standing with the Catholic Church. Need I say anymore. Do you stand for life or do you march to the drum of the devil. Hopefully, the new Pope will be a leader for a rebirth of religion in the World. This is my prayer.

It is such a comfort to know that the selection of the next Pope will in no way be determined by opinion columns, biased reporting, ABCCBSNBCCNN, skewed opinion polls, or twitter bombs. We don´t need to call fax email or post anything to facebook.

I´ll be praying for the Cardinals and of course Pope Benedict.

I pray not.

Liberal ´Catholic´ politicians are afraid that they will be denied Communion for voting for laws that violate Biblical teachings and Church Law .......... and then they can continue to mislead Catholic voters ............. like Pa Sen Casey head of ´Catholics for Obama´.

I still can´t hardly believe that over 50% of self identified ´Catholics´ voter for Great Leader.

E. J. Dionne, since when has he ever had an original thought--didn´t he have to dial up the NYT or WaPo to decide what his response would be?

´Confused, scared and depressed´: Lawyer
describes stabbing spree suspect, 16, who

A shy teenager with no prior violent tendencies who went on a random, stabbing rampage at his high school on Wednesday told his arresting officers that he ´wanted to die´. Alex Hribal, 16, stalked through Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville near Pittsburgh early on Wednesday morning, stabbing victims in the torso and slashing their arms and faces before being tackled by assistant principal Sam King. The attacker was described by students as a small, quiet boy who largely kept to himself but was not an outcast and did not appear to have been bullied. There were no indications before the attack

U.S. childhood obesity rates

U.S. childhood obesity rates have increased over the past 14 years, according to a study published on Monday, casting doubt on a recent analysis by government health researchers that found a sharp drop in preschool obesity rates over the past decade. The good news, announced in February by researchers at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), received widespread media coverage and prompted first lady Michelle Obama to say she was "thrilled at the progress we´ve made over the last few years in obesity rates among our youngest Americans.

In ‘Noah,’ a hard rain

Most religious movies feel as if they’re made by a church committee, but every now and then a wild-eyed prophet wanders in and rattles the theater with brimstone. Regardless of your feelings about either movie, Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ” qualifies and so does Martin Scorsese’s “The Last Temptation of Christ.” Now director Darren Aronofsky (“Black Swan,” “The Wrestler”) has ascended to the mountaintop and returned with the strangest, most visionary cinematic parable yet. “Noah” is equal parts ridiculous and magnificent, a showman’s folly and a madman’s epic. It elaborates on the Book of Genesis’s slender story of Noah

El Chapo, Most-Wanted Drug
Lord, Is Captured in Mexico
New York Times, by Randal C. Archibold & Ginger Thompson    Original Article
Posted By: Emerson- 2/23/2014 10:42:13 AM     Post Reply
Mexico City — Just before 7 a.m. on Saturday, dozens of soldiers and police officers descended on a condominium tower in Mazatlán, Mexico, a beach resort known as much as a hangout for drug traffickers as for its seafood and surf. The forces were following yet another tip about the whereabouts of one of the world’s most wanted drug kingpins, Joaquín Guzmán Loera — known as El Chapo, which means “Shorty” — who had eluded such raids for 13 years since escaping from prison, by many accounts in a laundry cart. With an army of guards and lethally enforced loyalty, he reigned over a worldwide, multibillion-dollar drug empire

Former Rep. Mel Reynolds is expected to be freed and deported from Zimbabwe as early as Tuesday after pornography charges were dropped Friday and he pleaded guilty to a visa violation. Reynolds´ lawyer, Arthur Gurira, said his client remained in jail in the southern African country but could be released Tuesday or Wednesday after immigration authorities complete deportation paperwork. “The papers are being processed,” Gurira said. “Once that´s done, he´ll be free.” Asked if Reynolds would be bound for Chicago, the lawyer said: “I wouldn´t know.”

SOCHI, Russia — The official mascots for the Winter Olympics are a polar bear, a hare and a leopard. But walk around the complexes that will stage the Games here, with the opening ceremony Friday, and what seem more apt are a hand drill, a backhoe and a shovel. Much of Sochi is a work in progress, and parts of it look at least a dozen all-nighters away from completion. There are unfinished hotels, half-finished stores and a mall where the only shop that is open and thriving is a Cinnabon. Wander the premises over the course of a day

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
