Even Bob Schieffer Has Limits

RUSH: The College of Cardinals is now entering the Sistine Chapel to begin the conclave to elect the next Vicar of Christ. For those of you in Rio Linda, that would be the next pope. For those of you who are Italian, it would be Il Papa. You may not know this. Yesterday on CBS, Slay the Nation, they had a roundtable. Bob Schieffer had Washington Post columnist Sally Quinn and Carl Bernstein on from Vanity Fair. Bernstein of Woodward and Bernstein fame. And they were talking about the church, the Catholic Church,

The lefties would like nothing more than for religious organizations, Boy Scouts, and other groups that maintain "traditional values" to become irrelevant.

I´m not a Catholic, but I have no reason to question their desire to serve their fellowmen, and be disciples of Christ. (Do some fall short? Absolutely! That´s human nature. And many well-meaning people indeed equate government handouts with Christlike charity... I had close family members who supported Dear Leader for that very reason!)

I hope the new Pope will do his best to steer his 1 billion followers (irrelevant? yeah, right!) in a traditional direction, and resist the pressure to become "The Church of What´s Happ´nin´ Now." (Nod to Flip Wilson.)

Just "being" a homosexual priest is very different than being a sexually active priest - whether homo- or hetero-.

Nothing wrong with it as long as you keep your vows to remain chaste.

Rush is right. I was born into a Catholic family, baptized and confirmed, and began to distance myself from the church as a young man as I became a Reagan conservative and a "small-l" libertarian. It lost people like me because of liberalism and the abandonment of their core values. (If the church was serious about their beliefs, they would have excommunicated Pelosi, Biden, Kennedy et al.) If they do not shed liberalism, they´ll be irrelevant.

The Catholic Church is not against a person because they are homosexual. It is the sexual act that they are against, as they are against all sex outside of marriage. As far as irrelevancy goes, the church is standing its ground on 2000 years of tradition and existence.

Many cardinals agree about taking visible action: - Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke publicly stated that John Kerry should not receive communion because of his support for abortion. JP2 and B16 were both very outspoken, conservative popes. And I will never forget that the miracle of a lone man (The bishop of Rome) addressing 100,000s who began chanting ´We want God´ in a Polish square, destroyed the grip of the communists/socialists.

Relevant with whom? Relevant with a Bible Lo-Fo like Sally Quinn, or relevant with God?

Hopefully, we will learn before it´s too late that any person or group of people, including churches, who think they have the authority to disregard or change the Word of God to their own liking is certain to find that they have perverted it and will be accursed. (Galatians 1:6-9)

Revelation 22:18-19 says, "For I testify unto everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book, if anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; And if anyone takes away from the words of this book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, and from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book."

Proverbs 14:12 "There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death."

That is repeated in Proverbs 16:25.

The word of God is what is relevant to our salvation and hope of eternal life with him regardless of what man considers relevant.

Quinn & Bernstein having gay friends who are in the catholic church confirms a suspicion I´ve had for years; Gays infiltrated the church back 70´s.... and after 911, when most Americans flocked back to church... the progressives pulled the "Go" button to release gay abuse in the church.. to stop the surge towards faith.

Given their dropping circulation numbers and falling Nielsen ratings, the ones who need to worry about irrelevancy are liberal dorks like Quinn and Bernstein and the rags they work for and the networks they appear on.

Conservative activist O´Keefe
claims Cuomo targeting his group

Conservative activist James O´Keefe is accusing New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo´s administration of targeting his group with document requests and a subpoena, claiming the Democratic governor´s recent comments critical of conservatives "aren´t simply words." O´Keefe, whose Project Veritas is behind a series of hidden-camera investigations against left-leaning groups and causes, made the claims on the heels of the controversy over a recent Cuomo interview. In it, Cuomo blasted "extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay" and said they "have no place" in New York. He later walked back his remarks, and said they were being taken out of context in the

Dinesh D´Souza, a conservative commentator and best-selling author, has been indicted by a federal grand jury for arranging excessive campaign contributions to a candidate for the U.S. Senate. According to an indictment made public on Thursday in federal court in Manhattan, D´Souza around August 2012 reimbursed people who he had directed to contribute $20,000 to the candidate´s campaign. The candidate was not named in the indictment. Attempts to reach D´Souza and a lawyer representing him were unsuccessful. D´Souza was charged in the indictment with one count of making illegal contributions in the names of others, and one count of causing

Artifice: Ever-smiling President Hassan Rouhani´s new Iran seeks American tourism and backs democracy in Syria, but claims it conceded nothing in its nuclear agreement. Call it the "humor of mass destruction." With apologies to funnyman Mel Brooks, whose movie "The Producers" somehow made it possible to laugh about the Nazis, it´s now "Springtime for Rouhani and Iran," as "Persia´s a fine land once more!" The new PR-savvy president of Tehran´s soon-to-be-nuclear-armed Islamofascist regime has dazzled elites — from European prime ministers to Google and Pepsi executives to movie stars like Matt Damon and rock stars like Bono — gathered at the Davos

If there is anything New York doesn´t need it´s more reasons for Empire State residents to flee. Over the last decade (2001-11) New York´s population fell by 1.6 million. Many disgruntled New Yorkers said enough, packed up and left the state. This was a larger population drain than suffered by any other state. Congratulations. That´s why Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo´s declaration that "extreme conservatives ... have no place in the state of New York" was so dumbfounding. Is it just me or does it seem like only yesterday that "progressives" like Mr. Cuomo were lecturing us about embracing "diversity"? As they say in

Climate Change: Don´t Blame
Man For California´s Drought

Environment: California is enduring a historic drought. Naturally some are blaming it on man-made global warming. Are they right? Probably not. This isn´t the first time the Golden State has gone dry. California was parched, drained and dehydrated in 2013. Los Angeles, which averages almost 15 inches of rain a year, had less than 4 inches. Farther north, San Francisco went through its driest days since 1849, the Gold Rush year that record-keeping began, with less than 4 inches of rain falling. It usually gets more than 20. San Jose, San Diego and Sacramento all received far less rainfall than they typically

Politics: Republican Party leaders seem willing, anxious even, to walk away from the Tea Party, certain that such bedrock support will brand the GOP as extremist in voters´ eyes. If anything, polls show, the opposite is true. With 10 months to go before the crucial midterm elections, Republicans understandably will try to avoid screwing up their chances for victory. Democrats have taken to vilifying any Republican who actually stands for something — such as Texas Sen. Ted Cruz — as a captive of what they´d like to label as the far-right fringe. This can be seen in the efforts of Sen. Charles Schumer of New York — the Democrats' top

There´s a Fox News poll out, and the headline here: "As Obama Starts His Sixth Year, 74% Say the US is Still in a Recession -- A third of voters say they like Obama and his policies, a dramatic drop from 47% who felt that way in October of 2012." This is a dramatic plunge. Thirty-three percent say they like Obama and his policies. That used to be near 50% just a year and a half ago. In addition, 62% now say that they dislike

He has survived numerous efforts by the left, by the Regime, and by union buddies to destroy him, to take him out of office, to recall him from office (twice) to ruin his reputation. He has survived it all, and he has survived it not afraid. He has not been compromised in surviving this. He did not become one of them in order to survive. He remained who he was.

While the administration publicly expresses full confidence in its health care law, privately it fears one part of the system is so flawed it could bankrupt insurance companies and cripple ObamaCare itself.

The Pentagon on Wednesday is expected to announce widespread changes to rules governing religious items and religion-based physical attributes that service members can maintain while in uniform — including beards, some religious tattoos, and turbans. NBC News obtained an early draft of the new Department of Defense instruction which states that the military will make every effort to accommodate “individual expressions of sincerely held beliefs” (conscience, moral principles, or religious beliefs) of service members. It goes on to say that unless doing so could have an adverse impact on military readiness, unit cohesion, good order and discipline, health and safety,

In politics, lying is the new sex. Even the lesser sin, exaggeration, is grounds for questions about your suitability to run for office. Americans may be becoming more like the French in tolerating peccadilloes (just ask Rep. Mark Sanford of South Carolina or Sen. David Vitter of Louisiana about surviving a sex scandal), but get a detail wrong about whether you divorced at 21 or at 19, and woe unto you. That’s what happened to Wendy Davis over the weekend. You may know her as the Texas state senator in pink sneakers who delivered an 11-hour filibuster against abortion restrictions in June.

A clear majority of the American people say that the Obama administration is not competent to manage the affairs of the U.S. government, according to a Quinnipiac poll released Wednesday. Those who believe the Obama administration is incompetent weigh in at a clip of 53-42 – a margin of 11 points. In addition, more people believe that the president is not even paying attention to what’s going on than the contrary: 47-45. (That may be because the president finds out about all those “phony scandals” by reading about them in the news.) The president gets a negative score on a

The bare-bones Wendy Davis story — the one without embellishment — is sufficiently inspiring as a matrix for defying expectations. The daughter of a teenage mother and a teenage mother herself, Davis managed to beat the odds by getting a college education and Ivy League law degree, then launching a political career that’s brought her national adulation. But since Davis’ Democratic gubernatorial ambitions caught fire last year, “facts have been blurred” in the retelling of her life’s story, as reported Sunday by this newspaper’s senior political writer, Wayne Slater.

Zarif told CNN Chief National Security Correspondent Jim Sciutto that terminology used by the White House to describe the agreement differed from the text agreed to by Iran and the other countries in the talks -- the United States, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany. "The White House version both underplays the concessions and overplays Iranian commitments" under the agreement that took effect Monday,

TOPEKA — A man who provided sperm to a lesbian couple in response to an online ad is the father of a child born to one of the women and must pay child support, a Kansas judge ruled Wednesday. Topeka resident William Marotta had argued that he had waived his parental rights and didn’t intend to be a father. Shawnee County District Judge Mary Mattivi rejected that claim, saying the parties didn’t involve a licensed physician in the artificial insemination process and thus Marotta didn’t qualify as a sperm donor, The Topeka Capital-Journal reported.
