Catholic Bishops Say Amnesty for
Illegal Immigrant Children Is ´Pro-Life´

Breitbart Big Government, by Dr. Susan Berry

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 8/1/2014 2:46:41 AM

Some Catholic bishops have recently suggested that granting amnesty to illegal immigrant children from Central America is consistent with “pro-life” Catholic teachings. As reported in National Catholic Register, Bishop David Zubik of Pittsburgh said that providing for the needs of the young illegal immigrants is one facet of a truly pro-life philosophy. “The Catholic Church responds to humanitarian crises here at home and all across the world because we are pro-life,” Zubik said in a statement on July 19th. “Being pro-life requires we protect and care for vulnerable persons from conception to natural death.”

Comments:
As a Roman Catholic, I know these bishops are speaking from their generation´s teachings in the seminary of "liberation theology." If they are for saving these children, then let them stay in their diocese and pay for all of their needs. They´ll find out soon enough, between the high unemployment caused by 0bama, that Sunday donations will dwindle for this gross misrepresentation on being "my brother´s keeper." They should focus first on excommunicating politicians that are "pro-choice."

I know we look to our clergy for all kinds of leadership but this latest POLITICAL OPINION from these Catholic Bishops is an abuse of the confidence Catholics have placed in their hands. We must never forget that our clergy are first--human.

Tread lightly your Excellencies, there is more at stake here than meets the eye.

I can´t believe they used the word illegal. Do they believe in the rule of law? How many more illegal children do the bishops want in the US?

I thought Pope Francis suggested that the clergy should not be sermonizing pro-life issues from the pulpit anymore. (Fact is, I have never heard a priest give a pro-life sermon from the pulpit.)

The American Catholic Bishops should get together with Francis and coordinate their narratives. Otherwise we will think that the Bishops use the pro-life issue as their straw man.

Years ago the American Bishops tried to turn their Conference of Bishops into the AmChurch (American Church - wanted to wrest some control from the Pope); then came the scandals and the term dropped out of the picture. Hopefully, it is not coming back again.

We so desperately need shepherds. We have way too many politicians in this country.

This is another illustration of the historical truth that the formation of the Catholic Church´s view of church-state relations was not formed by its experience in America, but in Europe before there even was a United States and a Constitution. In Europe, government is a partner with state churches, which it funds and often runs. The Catholics were used for centuries to have tax monies to spend, and brought that attitude with them when they moved here. It is biting them in the tush in some cases, but they can´t break free of the mold and learn to live on their own resources.

Some of you don´t think that Bishop Zubik is allowed to have an opinion on the illegal immigrant issue? He´s an American ... why can´t he voice his opinion? He doesn´t make the laws - and neither do we. But we all live with the consequences.

On the definition of pro-life ...

This is a case of being "damned if we do, damned if we don´t."

The pro-choice crowd has repeatedly said over the years that the pro-life folks didn´t care about the babies after they were born. On one blog (onpublicdiscourse) in 2011:

One of the most frequently repeated canards of the abortion debate is that pro-lifers really don’t care about life. As much as they talk about protecting the unborn, we are told, pro-lifers do nothing to support mothers and infants who are already in the world. Liberal writers such as Matthew Yglesias are given to observing that pro-lifers believe that “life begins at conception and ends at birth.”

Whether or not you choose to donate to the cause (Catholic Charities, Catholic Relief Services, etc.) - that´s up to you. Your money, your choice.

You have no say in what the government does with your tax money.

Air travelers on Sunday can likely expect further delays and cancellations at Chicago airports as the FAA labored to return traffic to normal after an arson fire Friday at the agency´s Aurora radar facility wreaked havoc in the nation´s air travel system. Although the FAA said Saturday that technicians were working to complete a "damage assessment and timeline for restoration of services" at the Aurora facility, the agency did not specify when the air traffic control center, one of the nation´s busiest, would be fully operational. Flight cancellations and delays continued to slow travelers Saturday.

Syrian militant group al-Nusra Front has denounced US-led air strikes as "a war against Islam". In an online statement, the al-Qaeda-linked group called on jihadists around the world to target Western and Arab countries involved. It comes as the US and other nations widened air strikes against Islamic State (IS) fighters in Iraq and Syria. The Pentagon said jets hit the Syrian city of Raqqa on Saturday as well as IS positions near the Turkish border. Kurdish fighters have been defending the Kurdish town of Kobane on the Syrian side of the border since an IS advance sent about 140,000 civilians fleeing to Turkey.

FDA Approves Study of Scorpion-Derived
´Tumor Paint´ for Brain Cancer Patients

Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 9/27/2014 6:57:22 PM     Post Reply
Seattle cancer researchers are hoping that they will be able to use scorpion venom to fight deadly brain cancer through a new product called "Tumor Paint." For the first time, the Food and Drug Administration has approved the product, developed by Blaze Bioscience, for study in human trials in the U.S. During the phase one trial, the tumor paint will be used to on an estimated 21 people with a glioma, or tumor in the brain or spine. In theory the "paint" will light up the tumor with special florescent molecules that will allow surgeons to then remove cancerous tissue more effectively and safely. The tumor paint is created by utilizing a protein

Washington - The parents of Michael Brown said Saturday in an interview with The Associated Press they were unmoved by the apology of the Ferguson, Missouri, police chief weeks after their unarmed 18-year-old son was killed by a police officer. Brown´s mother, Lesley McSpadden, called for Chief Tom Jackson to be fired, and his father, Michael Brown Sr., said rather than an apology, they would rather see Officer Darren Wilson arrested for the death of their son on Aug. 9. "An apology would be when Darren Wilson has handcuffs, processed and charged with murder," Brown Sr. said. The young man, who was black,

Police in Oklahoma said Saturday they´ve interviewed the man who allegedly beheaded a 54-year-old woman at his former workplace. Nolen, 30, was shot inside the Vaughn Food processing plant but regained consciousness in the hospital, said Jeremy Lewis, spokesman for the Moore police department. (Snip) Nolen´s Facebook page provides no indication he planned to attack anybody. He had recently converted to Islam and started the page under the name Jah´Keem Yisrael.

Fox News host Bill O’Reilly wants a mercenary army to supply the ground forces in the latest installment of the War on Terror. And it seems the smart set can’t stop laughing. (Snip) Let’s back up. Ever since 9/11, Americans have been debating the limits of war, the rules of war, the purpose of war, even the definition of war. Weeks after it had already started bombing the Islamic State, the Obama administration was still struggling with whether or not we should call a sustained military assault “war.” Brutal hammer-and-tongs politics have made that conversation difficult enough. But what has made things all the more frustrating is

The Sahara is a harsh, dry climate, and even though it only averages three inches of rain per year, it churns out dust storms that spread far across the Atlantic Ocean and North America. Earlier this month, astronaut Alexander Gerst captured a picturesque view of one such dust storm from a window on the International Space Station. The ISS was over Libya at the time, and this storm reached hundreds of miles across the Sahara. NASA writes: In the photo, winds appear to be coming out of the east or northeast (left), and the sun is setting to the west.

Sen. Rand Paul called for a “revival” in America Friday and a re-examination of how the country is involving itself in the affairs of the Middle East. The country, he said, is in “a full-blown crisis, a spiritual crisis” — and it doesn’t need another politician or more promises. “What America really needs is a revival,” he said. “America needs to revive tradition. American needs to revive virtue.” Mr. Paul, like Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, another potential 2016 contender who spoke earlier Friday at the 2014 Values Voter Summit, devoted a significant part of his speech to talking about Meriam Ibrahim, a woman who refused to

Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said no one would need to worry about how to fix problems in Syria, Iraq, Ukraine and Libya if the U.S. had maintained a strong place of leadership on the world stage. “Those are the questions you wouldn’t have needed to ask if we had not run our economy modeling it on Europe, which is a failed model, and incurred the kind of debt and reduced the defense budget in such a way that we send signals out to the world of weakness,” Mr. Rumsfeld said on “The Mike Broomhead Show.” “Signals that suggested the United States is not going to be what it’s been in the past,

Traditionally, you wouldn´t gift someone a rat -- not someone you like, anyway. And even if a gift-wrapped rodent was in the cards, you´d likely shy away from the giant African pouched rat, which -- as the name suggests -- is rather large (think cat-sized). Tanzania-based NGO Apopo, however, thinks rats make excellent gifts. So much so that they´ve launched an adopt-a-rat program, which allows participants to sponsor the animal. (Snip) Weetjens´ rodents have many talents. Mostly, though, they are highly trained to sniff out land mines and detect tuberculosis -- two scourges that have had a tremendously negative impact

The Dearborn automaker said in a statement Friday that is recalling some 2013-14 Ford C-MAX, Fusion, Escape and Lincoln MKZ vehicles in North America for an issue with the restraints control module. The recall includes 745,000 vehicles in the United States, 82,000 in Canada and 20,000 in Mexico.

We’re being had. Again. For six years, President Obama has endeavored to will the country into accepting two pillars of his alternative national-security reality. First, he claims to have dealt decisively with the terrorist threat, rendering it a disparate series of ragtag jayvees. Second, he asserts that the threat is unrelated to Islam, which is innately peaceful, moderate, and opposed to the wanton “violent extremists” who purport to act in its name. Now, the president has been compelled to act against a jihad that has neither ended nor been “decimated.” The jihad, in fact, has inevitably intensified under his counterfactual

If I were a scientist, I´d stick to the Goldman Sachs principle: bet on both sides. "Believe in science, believe in God" seems to cover all the possibilities and gives you the best chance for a cheery afterlife.

When the U.S. military strikes, its leaders often choose colorful code names for the operation that sometimes stick in history, like Operation Overlord or Rolling Thunder or Desert Storm. Not this time. The U.S.-led air campaign against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria doesn´t have a name. "I know of no plans at this point to name it," Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby said Thursday. Since World War II, almost every U.S. military operation, large and small, has had a code name.

Political pollsters have a tough job. They have to create formulas to determine if the person they are interviewing is likely to vote, and it is within this calculation that their reputations are made. Typically, those who are likely to vote in an off-year election are pretty set. They are the people who always vote in elections — with some motivated by specific issues. In a wave election, the number of those motivated by specific issues escalates, changing the electoral landscape as the candidates who are beneficiaries of this increased participation sweep to victory. The 2014 election is rapidly looking like something new
