Vatican gives thumbs up for
exorcist association

Associated Press, by Staff

VATICAN CITY — Exorcists now have a legal weapon at their disposal. The Vatican has formally recognized the International Association of Exorcists, a group of 250 priests in 30 countries who liberate the faithful from demons. The Vatican newspaper L´Osservatore Romano reported Tuesday that the Vatican´s Congregation for Clergy had approved the organization´s statutes and recognized the group under canon law. More than his predecessors, Pope Francis speaks frequently about the devil, and last year was seen placing his hands on the head of a man purportedly possessed by four demons in what exorcists said was a prayer of liberation

Comments:
And, if I might add ... not a moment too soon!

I wonder why AP neglected to mention the 2013 consecration of Vatican City to St. Michael? Perhaps they don´t recognize the significance.

Maybe the Pope will consider assigning a few exorcists to our nations Capitol.

If we don´t exorcize daily, how can we ever get rid of the 180 pounds of dead weight in the Oval Office?

An exorcism, Posters, will not work in D.C. However, a lake of fire and brimstone may just do the trick.

The Pope missed his chance when Zippy visited.

Not taking any chances, Zippy gave his rosary to Nanci upon return.

Earlier today, President Barack Obama said that America’s goal should be to “shrink” the Islamic State until it is a “manageable problem.” His own vice president, Joe Biden, later contradicted him, saying that we will “follow ISIS to the gates of Hell, because Hell is where they will reside.” This afternoon, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki did a “what he really meant to say” routine. (snip) Fox’s James Rosen noted the president’s own contradictory comments, which went from wanting to destroy ISIS, to wanting to roll it back, to wanting to leave it as a “manageable problem.” All of those

On Wednesday’s “The Five” on the Fox News Channel, co-panelist Greg Gutfeld opened the show with a scathing critique of President Barack Obama and his demeanor when speaking publicly about the threat of ISIS in Iraq and Syria. Gutfeld compared Obama’s tone in discussing the ISIS threat to that of when he is speaking about domestic policy, which according to Gutfeld is a startling contrast that is likely motivated by ideology. “I’d call him Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde but he´s more like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Bean. No wonder everyone is confused. We have a Goofus and Gallant presidency

NEW ORLEANS — A federal judge upheld Louisiana´s ban on same-sex marriages on Wednesday, as well as the state´s refusal to recognize gay marriages legally performed in other states. U.S. District Judge Martin Feldman´s ruling broke a string of 20-plus court wins for supporters of same-sex marriage since the U.S. Supreme Court struck down part of the federal Defense of Marriage Act last year. Feldman said gay marriage supporters failed to prove that the ban violates equal protection or due process provisions of the Constitution. He also rejected an argument that the ban violated the First Amendment by effectively forcing

Secretary of State John Kerry addressed the beheading of Miami native Steven Sotloff this morning, calling the news “a punch to the gut.” “Yesterday, the world bore witness again to the unfathomable brutality of ISIL terrorist murderers when we saw Steven Sotloff, an American journalist who left home in Florida to tell the story of brave people in the Middle East, taken from us in an act of medieval savagery by a coward hiding behind a mask,” Kerry said in a statement, his first remarks since the video emerged Tuesday afternoon. President Obama said in Estonia today that the authenticity

The Affordable Care Act is heading for another near-death experience in the Supreme Court. In July, a divided panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit issued a ruling in Halbig v. Burwell that would greatly limit the number of people who are eligible for subsidized health insurance. The problem has to do with how people are connected with insurance providers, how they learn about subsidies, and how they sign up for plans. As Congress originally conceived it, the A.C.A. called for each state to set up its own exchange with a Web site, which most of

In a fresh effort to generate fervor for a far-reaching new global climate agreement, a U.N. agency is releasing videos featuring “imaginary but realistic” weather reports set in 2050, to illustrate the type of extreme conditions it predicts we will face by mid-century. But the first video in the series of 15 to be rolled out over the coming weeks shows some temperatures for 2050 considerably in excess of those projected in the latest major U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report (which has itself been dubbed “too alarmist” by some critics.)

GOP Senate candidate Cory Gardner is betting that contraception will get him at least a few votes among Colorado women who´ve bought into the "war on women" meme promoted by the Democratic Party. Gardner has released an ad in which he calls for contraception to be available to women "over the counter" without a doctor´s prescription, "around the clock," he says. Gardner is in the middle of a bruising fight with incumbent Democrat Mark Udall who has been going after Gardner for his past support of what´s called a "personhood" amendment, a divisive proposition that would allow for an unborn

London imam Anjam Choudary left CNN host Brian Stelter aghast when he defended the Islamic State´s killing of American journalist James Foley, told him that Sharia is coming to America, and made a joke about 9/11. Choudary appeared on "Hannity" last week, where he managed to say that an Islamic caliphate would implement Sharia in the United States: "You don´t have a choice, it´s coming to you in America." He is a Muslim imam at a mosque that is credited with having radicalized Abdel Bary, the British rapper accused of beheading Foley. (snip) CNN´s Stelter started the interview telling Choudary that

Neurosurgeon and best-selling author Dr. Ben Carson said that although President Barack Obama has claimed America is “not a Judeo-Christian nation,” he is not the one to decide that point, we the people “get to decide that.” “We as Americans have certain beliefs and cultures that led us to the pinnacle of the world,” said Dr. Carson while speaking at the 8th Annual Defending the American Dream Summit on Friday in Dallas, Texas. “One of those things is that we are a people of faith,” he said. “I know the president has said that we are not a Judeo-Christian nation.

One of Florida´s top political editors labeled former Florida Governor Jeb Bush the "loser of the week" and noted that his full-throated embrace of Common Core is making it less likely that he would secure the GOP nomination if he decides to run for President of the United States. "Bush´s strength as a presidential candidate looks much more dubious today than a few months ago, amid widespread backlash against education accountability policies closely associated with him," veteran Florida politics observer Adam Smith wrote at the Tampa Bay Times.

President Obama said Wednesday that the federal government has authenticated a video showing the beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff at the hands of Islamist militants, and the U.S. objective now is to “degrade and destroy” those militants so they no longer pose a threat to the civilized world. Speaking at a press conference alongside Estonian President Toomas Hendrik Ilves in the Estonian capital of Tallinn, Mr. Obama seemed to lay the groundwork for expanded U.S. action against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State, also known by the acronyms ISIL and ISIS.

Vice President Joe Biden delivered a passionate speech at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in New Hampshire, vowing to bring Islamic State terrorists to justice. Mentioning the deaths of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff, Biden referred to the Islamic State terrorists as “barbarians” for beheading them on camera. "If they think the American people will be intimidated, they don´t know us very well,” Biden said, reminding the crowd that the United States came back after 9/11 and defeated Osama bin Laden. “When people harm Americans we don’t retreat, and we don’t forget,” he said. “They should know, we will follow them

President Obama’s spokesman emphasized that the United States tried to save journalist Steven Sotloff, who has reportedly been beheaded by ISIS terrorists. “The United States, as you know, has dedicated significant time and resources to try and rescue Mr. Sotloff,” Earnest told reporters when alerted that ISIS had claimed to have executed the kidnapped reporter. In the video, the authenticity of which Earnest could confirm, Sotloff is apparently killed by the same British jihadist who killed American photojournalist James Foley. “I’m back, Obama, and I’m back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State,”

The FBI said late Monday that it was investigating leaked nude photos that targeted Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton. The agency told the Associated Press that it was addressing accusations that online accounts of celebrities, including Oscar-winner Lawrence, had been hacked, leading to the posting of their nude photographs online. In addition, Apple Inc. spokeswoman Natalie Kerris said the company was investigating whether any iCloud accounts were compromised, according to the AP. Representatives for supermodel-turned-actress Upton, 22, and Lawrence, 24, who plays heroine Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games movie franchise, issued statements about intimate pictures which first appeared on

In remarks on the U.S. economy Monday, President Barack Obama said Congressional Republicans will eventually cave to public pressure to raise the federal minimum wage. Obama was speaking at the Laborfest festival hosted by the AFL-CIO in Milwaukee, Wis. “If I cared about these things, I’d also want more Democrats looking out for me,” he said. “I’m just saying. Because when the rest of the country is working to raise wages, but Republicans in Congress won’t, it ain’t right.” Noting the protests in recent months from fast food workers seeking higher wages, Obama said Republicans would open up to the

It took the Washington Post 2,017 words and 59 paragraphs in a feature about Dorian Johnson, who initially said that his friend Michael Brown was shot in the back, to reveal that the federal government´s autopsy also reportedly did not find that to be the case. As the Post noted in its profile of Dorian Johnson, Brown´s "body had been autopsied three times — once each by St. Louis County police, a pathologist hired by Brown’s family and federal authorities. All found that Brown had been shot at least six times, including twice in the head but not in the

FRIENDSHIP, Maine -- Imagine Cape Cod without cod. Maine without lobster. The region´s famous rocky beaches invisible, obscured by constant high waters. It´s already starting to happen. The culprit is the warming seas - and in particular the Gulf of Maine, whose waters are heating up faster than 99 percent of the world´s oceans, scientists say. Long-established species of commercial fish, like cod, herring and northern shrimp, are departing for colder waters. Black sea bass, blue crabs and new species of squid - all highly unusual for the Gulf - are turning up in fishermen´s nets. The Gulf of Maine´s warming reflects broader

Just resign already. Go. Be gone. Vamoose. Get out of our lives. More important: Stop endangering all of us with your self-indulgent vacations and self-absorbed dithering, along with unconstitutional domestic power plays while the whole world burns. Barack Obama already is derelict in his duties as commander in chief. He ought to abdicate and just step off his self-made throne. Knowledgeable people were calling for Obama to begin air strikes against the Islamic State barbarians months before Obama could rouse himself to admit that the brutes were something other than “jayvee” terrorists. Because he didn’t, thousands of innocents died, villages were razed,

Over the weekend, former President Jimmy Carter addressed the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) in Detroit. He told the assembly that the principles of Allah will benefit the whole world. Jimmy Carter left the Southern Baptist Church a few years back, citing its “rigid” views. Muslim views tend to be a whole lot more “rigid.” For instance, Saudi Arabia doesn’t allow Christians to build any churches. Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood supporters are waging pogroms against Christians. If a Muslim leaves Islam, they are called an apostate and are often marked or death. One can be an apostate just by having
