Those Catholic Women Who Use Contraception | Jennifer Fulwiler

Oh Jennifer – such a good article. Thank you for writing this, in particular:

“I do not see women who display a blatant disregard for what their Church teaches. 

Instead, I see women who love their Catholic faith, and who genuinely desire to live in accordance with its tenets.

I see women who have been bombarded by secular wisdom on human sexuality, yet who have never heard a detailed explanation of their own Church’s beliefs in this area.”

Curtailing teen births now a higher-ed goal

Incoming college students next fall will begin receiving information during orientation to raise awareness about unplanned pregnancies.

Interesting article, and I’m just wondering how they’re factoring abortions into this overall.  Birth control and abortion are not the answer to reducing teen pregnancies.

Pro-Choice Catholics Worship an Idiot God |Blogs | NCRegister.com.

Wow.

“[T]here is someone even worse than a pro-choice Catholic..
Who is worse? Their God. The God of the pro-choice Catholic is an idiot God.
The God of the pro-choice Catholic says, “On Mount Horeb, I shattered the barrier between heaven and earth, and I will led an entire nation of people out of slavery and into the wilderness to give them My commandments. The history of the human race was changed forever because of the gift of My law, which will protect them and will guide them to the promised land. So, which commandments affirm your lifestyle? Follow those; don’t sweat the rest.”

The God of the pro-choice Catholic says, “I will send my Son who will give up His body to show you that there is something worse than suffering, something worse even than death. That God Himself expressed the truest form of freedom by obediently and humbly giving Himself over to death so that weaker creatures might have life. This is the message of the Cross. But maybe for you, freedom is best expressed with a suction machine. Your body, your choice. Who am I to say?”

The God of the pro-choice Catholics says, “I will establish a Church on earth to guide you and keep you from error, so that you can use your intellect to discover the paths of holiness which lead to true freedom and happiness; and this Church will endure every trial, assault and outrage from the devil, from the world, and from within, and it will last until the end of the world. But if any of the Church’s teachings make you feel bad, then make up something easier and call it ‘progress.’ That should work fine, too.”

The God of the pro-choice Catholic says, “I will tell you a thousand times that this world is passing away, and that what you do here only matters because of how it prepares you for eternity. The joys and sorrows of this world are fleeting, but your soul is immortal, and your body will be resurrected, to live out your salvation or your damnation eternally, according to the choices you make here and now. But don’t go to any trouble. Be practical. Eternity will sort itself out somehow, I’m sure.”

The God of the pro-choice Catholics says, “I will give you sexual union as a beautiful and perilously powerful way for humans to take some small part in the fruitful love that pours from one Person of the Holy Trinity to the next. So, the main thing to remember about sex is that, above all, you should do whatever makes you feel comfortable.”

The God of the pro-choice Catholic says, “I will take a human girl and make her the queen of Heaven and Earth. She will be the one chosen to bring the divine into the world. Human history and the second Person of the Holy Trinity will be permanently, profoundly, gloriously changed because of a woman’s choice, through a woman’s body. Also, women will never be respected unless they spread their legs for an IUD.”
The God of the pro-choice Catholic says, “I have conquered death. Now go forth and kill.”

Idiot.”

Catholics and Politics! Is nothing sacred? | Daily Meditations with Fr. Alphonse

Daily Meditations with Fr. Alfonse: Luke 7:31-35 Catholics and Politics!.

“Everyone is an expert today. Everyone. There are very few professions that we still respect. And by respect, I mean those whom I trust may know more than I do with regards to a specific discipline.
Now, I still believe in experts. And I believe in them because I know I can’t be an expert in everything. I simply don’t have enough time to read up on everything.
Early this morning I came up with two professions that I thought we still respected: doctors and lawyers. But as I sit here writing this meditation, I believe I am wrong with regards to doctors. I think we go to the doctors only as a last resort. Why? Because we think we know better. So, we Google our symptoms; we self-diagnosis; we self-prescribe and then we finally go in to see the doctor. When the doctor gives us our medication, we end up not following the instructions. Why? Because we think we know better.

The same holds true for God and the Church. We are like children. And just like children, we tend to put as much trust in God and the Church as a child puts in the wisdom and experience of his/her parents. Not much.

So who do we trust? Superstars! All kinds of them too: music stars, actors and actresses, billionaires and their wives, politicians and their children.”

He goes on to explain the difference in knowledge and wisdom, and dogma vs. propaganda…. worth the read.

Which one was conceived in Rape? | LifeSiteNews.com

‘Which one was conceived in Rape?’: the viral image that deflated pro-abortion rhetoric | LifeSiteNews.com.

“No one understands the flaw in the rape-abortion argument better than Rebecca Kiessling, who at 18 learned that she was conceived in a brutal rape by a serial rapist who held her mother at knife-point.

“Please understand that whenever you identify yourself as being ‘pro-choice,’ or whenever you make that exception for rape,” she writes in her testimony, “what that really translates into is you being able to stand before me, look me in the eye, and say to me, ‘I think your mother should have been able to abort you.’””

Powerful words.
