Month: July 2012
Well. This is interesting.
Not anything we didn’t already know, but it’s interesting that it’s coming from the NY Times. Seems they are getting fed up with the current administration.
And I’m back from my two week hiatus! The sun is shining and the grass is green and the news is as saddening as ever. My heart goes out to those involved in the Colorado shooting and for the conversion of their shooter.
My reason for posting:
“How do liberals, who constantly accuse us of intolerance, get to the point where they use their elected power to “intolerate”, to the point of persecution and legal action, those of us who disagree with them?
Simple: gay activists have pushed the gay marriage issue as an argument for civil rights. And in this country, we have ways of dealing with people who violate the civil rights of others. Gay activists and their liberal converts have so accepted the (false) premise that to oppose gay marriage is the same as opposing interracial marriage that they really intend to treat us the equivalent of bigots who are racists.
Alderman Moreno when he announced his plan to block Chick-fil-A’s plan to open a restaurant in his Ward referred to President Cathy’s “bigoted, homophobic comments” and went on to say, “Because of this man’s ignorance, I will now be denying Chick-fil-A’s permit to open a restaurant in the 1st Ward” … simply astounding.”
I refer to the headline… IS THIS AMERICA??!
Go to Chick-Fil-A today. It may not do much, but something is better than nothing and money is what talks in this world. Let’s hope people begin to listen.
Further proof that Catholicism is built on a strict tradition that must be upheld with precision…..
“According to Catholic liturgical practice, priests are duty bound to the prayers written in the Roman Missal, but Rowe had deviated from the text for decades. He said he did so when the official words didn’t connect precisely with the message he was hoping to convey.”
A misguided but heartfelt request undoubtedly. The rubrics of the
GIRM (General Instruction of the Roman Missal) are quite clear what can and cannot be said and when and when not it is to be said. The words are precise to the point that the direction states “The priest bows his head slightly at these words” or “The priest speaks these words under his breath as he…”.
What a beautiful faith we have, and what a precious gift it remains to us today. Motions like this can be difficult to bear, but it is clear that disciplinary action had been taken time and time again but remained unheeded and his actions unchanged. This measure was the last resort as a way to preserve the validity of the traditions that have been so carefully handed down for over 2000 years.
Our Lady of Guadalupe, patron of the Americas, pray for us!
Look what’s next for America!
Illegal circumcision for Jewish people.
And what’s scarier, is this ruling is coming from Germany. Haven’t they already had a little squabble with the Jews? Hmm.
“Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it”.
I wonder how few people realize what this means.
He is essentially creating a “One World Order” of sorts, responsible for all arms dealings within each country and over international borders. This is equivalent to creating an additional amendment to the Constitution that cannot be reversed. Our right to have and bear arms will be severely threatened by this ruling which gives the authority to “control” arms dealings at the federal level.
If it is ratified in the Senate, this is the beginning of squashing any future revolts that could occur against an overpowered government. Because hey, it’s illegal to have a gun.
““[A total of] 53 percent of 13-year-old girls are unhappy with their bodies,” another blurb reads. “That number increases to 78 percent by age 17.””
“Grefe said that, despite the risks, children and teenagers – as much as half of all female teens, and a third of all male teens – are trying to lose weight through unhealthy means such as skipping meals, fasting, smoking cigarettes, vomiting or taking laxatives.
Amy Zucchero, campaign director for Miss Representation, told CBS Seattle that exposure to media – and subsequently, to what they feel are distorted images of idealized male and female beauty – as well as to conversations conducted by nearby adults tend to heavily influence their self and world views.”
This is what saddens me about the culture we have now – this is normal now. The objectification of women has trickled into the objectification of children, and their idealization of what they “should” look like determines whether they are happy or not. And as the article goes on to say, much if not all of the blame can really go to the parents; what a daughter sees her mother do is what she will do herself, now if not later in her own adult life. “Dieting” and a general vocal unhappiness with their appearance is more visible to a child than to an adult. It is all about the example, it is all about the precedent.
