Pope Benedict speaks
out against abortion

Irish Times [Dublin, Ireland], by Patsy McGarry

Posted By:NorthernDog, 1/1/2013 9:08:48 PM

The path to attainment of the common good and peace is “above all that of respect for human life in all its many aspects, beginning with its conception, through its development and up to its natural end,” Pope Benedict XVI has said. “True peacemakers, then, are those who love, defend and promote human life in all its dimensions . . . Anyone who loves peace cannot tolerate attacks and crimes against life.” (Snip) “Indeed how could one claim to bring about peace, the integral development of peoples or even the protection of the environment without defending the life

What are you going to do about it, Padre? Nothing. Because the biggest hypocrites are your biggest donors. Especially in the United States. Talk is cheap.

Let the L-Dot sanctioned Catholic-bashing commence. Every single article posted on Vatican or Catholic issues becomes open season on vultures to cackle over stereo-typed and false sound bites on perceived doctrine of the church. So sick of this. JMJ Pray for U.S.

If Pope Benedict truly feels this way, he needs to stop ignoring the cafeteria Catholics in the US like Pelosi, Kerry, etc who support abortion. All the crying about catholic-bashing doesn´t change the fact that this is how the Catholic church operates in this country. Until the Vatican starts denying them the sacrament or excommunicating them, it is all balloon juice to me. I actually have hopes that this Pope has a backbone.

Christ did not die on the cross to provide a club to persuade any to come to His Father! If any Pope used his office as means of punishment to order to follow faithfully HE would not be the Pope. Precisely why so many who don´t know the faith are so vocally ignorant of it. Go to Catholicism videos at Word on Fire.com by Fr. Robt. Barron and bone up.

The 9th Annual West Coast Walk for Life is Saturday, January 16 in San Francisco. The rally begins at 12:30 pm at the Civic Center Plaza. Then a 2 mile walk down Market Street to the Ferry Building.

I´ve walked for two years. Its an exhilarating experience to proclaim the goodness of life in the capital of the culture of death. Come on west coast Ldotters, lets join the ranks this year.

Yes, #8, Pope Benedict is alone.

Sad, isn´t it. Pope John Paul II had Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan as allies.

Together they helped bring down one of the world´s most evil and murderous regimes, the Soviet Union.

Now I fear our on country has been taken over by an evil, murderous regime. Yes, it isn´t as bad (yet) as the former Soviet Union; and yes, the takeover has been so slow and incremental (unlike the October Revolution of 1917) that many are still in denial. But the Left has taken over.

Confusion Over Deadlines
Jeopardizes Obamacare

As the enrollment deadline approaches for Obamacare, The White House is counting on a surge of sign ups. But more than half of Americans have no idea when that deadline is, and even more are shrugging it off because they believe it will be extended. Despite the administration’s outreach efforts, a new Bankrate survey shows 55 percent still aren’t aware of the March 31 health care sign up deadline through the exchanges. Nearly 25 percent believe it already passed on January 1, and 11 percent think they still have until December 31, 2014 to sign up—nine months late.

Ralph Lauren unveiled the opening ceremony uniforms for the U.S. Olympic team Thursday and this year the apparel designer made sure the items were 100 percent made in the United States. After getting some backlash for outsourcing some of the clothing manufacturing for the team´s 2012 uniform, the company stayed closer to home, employing some 40 U.S. companies to complete the look. "It is a privilege to be a part of dressing Team USA during the Sochi Games," says David Lauren, Ralph Lauren’s son and executive vice president of advertising, marketing and corporate communications, in a press release.

Afghani officials freed 37 insurgents and Taliban fighters with “blood on their hands” in what the Pentagon called a “major step backward” for the rule of law in the war torn nation. The hardened fighters were among 88 prisoners who were being held by the U.S. and being transferred to the emerging Afghan criminal justice system. U.S. authorities said many had directly participated in attacks that wounded or killed scores of U.S. military personnel and Afghan citizens, yet were freed by the Afghan Review Board. “The ARB is releasing back to society dangerous insurgents who have Afghan blood on their

A series of winter storms in the Midwest has snow -- and removal costs -- piling up way above normal in many cities. Chicago, Detroit and Cincinnati already have seen more snow than they typically get for the entire season, and there are two months left in winter. (Snip) The snow this month is busting the snow-removal budget in Indianapolis: The costs of salting, plowing and employee overtime are close to exhausting the city´s $7.3 million snow-clearing budget, which is supposed to last for all of 2014.

In Speech to Congress, Obama

President Obama will be addressing Congress Tuesday in his State of the Union speech, but much of his speech will include plans to bypass them, White House officials said Sunday. "We need to assure to the American people that we can get something done, either through Congress or on our own, White House Senior Adviser Dan Pfeiffer said on CNN. “If Congress doesn’t act, the president will,” Pfeiffer said in a separate appearance on Fox News.

Cuts in the cards for IBM: Insiders

IBM managers are working on their lists and checking them twice, but this is not about Santa Claus. It’s about downsizing. People with access to inside-IBM information have told the Poughkeepsie Journal that managers have to identify candidates by Friday for a future “resource action” to eliminate jobs. Managers in the U.S. Systems and Technology Group were told they needed to do some planning in case a resource action is approved. Employees are not being told at this point. That development is consistent with Tuesday’s revelations by IBM Chief Financial Officer Martin Schroeter that the first quarter would bring the

Super Bowl XLVIII is scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 2, but the NFL put contingency plans in place to play the game any time between Friday and Monday next weekend.

"Football is played in the elements." (Snip) If a major storm or severe temperatures impacts the region, the game could be played anywhere from Friday, Jan. 31 to Monday, Feb. 3.

Boston schools? Cancelled. Hey kids, you don’t have to go to school today! So go out and have fun trying to build snowmen with this 4-inch dusting of snow. State of the State speech? Cancelled. Instead of addressing the future of the Commonwealth yesterday evening, Governor Deval Patrick gave the state what it really craves: a snowstorm press conference, complete with requisite casual snow attire, which for Patrick meant unbuttoning his top shirt button and unbuttoning his blazer. The Mayor? Canceling school and answering phones. Of his decision to cancel school in Boston today, Walsh says he’d rather be safe

Marijuana makes you stupid. Nobody wants to acknowledge the obvious fact, but that’s what this whole legalization debate is all about. That’s why most of the candidates for governor, of both parties, have come out against legalization, even if they have to obfuscate why they’re opposed to the Colorado-ization of Massachusetts. After all, the pols can’t offend that pivotal ganja-American voting bloc, assuming they can remember to vote in November.

Stephen Hawking has produced a "mind-bending" new theory that argues black holes do not actually exist - at least not in the way we currently perceive them. Instead, in his paper, Information Preservation and Weather Forecasting for Black Holes, Hawking proposes that black holes can exist without 'event horizons', the invisible cover believed to surround every black hole.During a previous lecture, 'Into the Black Hole', Hawkins described an event horizon as the boundary of a black hole, "where gravity is just strong enough to drag light back, and prevent it escaping".
“Falling through the event horizon, is a bit like going over Niagara Falls in a canoe", he said. "If you are above the falls, you can get away if you paddle fast enough, but once you are over the edge, you are lost. There's no way back.

Representative Steve Stockman (R-TX), who has been nowhere to be seen for almost three weeks, may have just turned up in London after a trip to Russia, according to Breitbart. Stockman, who submitted a last-minute longshot primary challenge to Senator John Cornyn (R-TX), has missed fifteen roll call votes since January 9, and has held nary a campaign event, despite drastically trailing Cornyn in the polls for an election in early March. Reporters trying to track Stockman down have been met with unresponsive campaign and congressional offices, though he appeared to have been located last week in Cairo, Egypt.

I personally have not signed up for Amazon’s premiere, super-duper, fancy-dancy, wave-o’-the-future membership program, even though I’m a frequent customer. But I’m fascinated by the transformation people talk about once they do. “Oh, you’ll see,” they tell me, “you’ll see.” On its face, Prime offers two simple things: Free two-day shipping on most purchases, and access to streaming movies and TV shows. All for $80 a year. Whether or not people need two-day shipping, a few things seem to happen once they

Last week the Wall Street Journal published Gregory Hicks’s column “Benghazi and the smearing of Chris Stevens.” It would be easy to overlook Hicks’s column in the crush of last week’s news, but it is deserving of special attention. In the column Hicks offers his eyewitness testimony to the security issues that Stevens dealt with at our Libyan facilities before his death. The redacted report of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Committee that was released on January 15 has left some to draw the conclusion that Stevens rejected additional security and to imply that he is responsible for the success

The honeymoon is over for Wendy Davis. The Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate this week sustained the most negative coverage she’s faced since shooting to political stardom last summer. And her campaign, still smarting from the scrutiny, is determined to change the subject by turning up the heat on her opponent, GOP Attorney General Greg Abbott, over education. In the high-profile, astronomically expensive Texas gubernatorial race, Davis was riding high just over a week ago. While she has always faced an uphill battle, she had just raked in stellar fundraising numbers and scored yet another national television interview that showcased her compelling journey

The number of people enrolled in private health insurance under Obamacare has soared by more than one-third in recent weeks to around 3 million, according to government data released on Friday. Marilyn Tavenner, administrator of the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), announced the preliminary tally in a blog posting. She forecast that enrollment through new federal and state health insurance marketplaces would continue to grow in coming weeks as a public outreach campaign accelerates. The new data adds to evidence that President Barack Obama´s administration has turned the corner on enrollment after a botched October 1 launch.

President Barack Obama was right when he said, “The long-term unemployed are not lazy. They’re not lacking in motivation. They’re coping with the aftermath of the worst economic crisis in generations.” He should know, his policies prolong the situation. From a promised minimum wage increase, to destabilization of the health care system, to an energy policy encapsulated by “Under my plan … electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket,” no part of the Obama vision is about making America freer and richer.
