Organs taken from patients that doctors were pressured to declare brain dead, suit charges – NYPOST.com.

This is unfortunately why Catholics are unable to list themselves as Organ Donors.  It is cases like this in which human greed overrules the sanctity of one human life that make what could be a wonderful and beneficial practice an abhorrent killer of men.

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

Posted on Updated on

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.

Study Shows Homosexual Parenting Not Equal to Heterosexual Parenting | C-Fam.org

Study Shows Homosexual Parenting Not Equal to Heterosexual Parenting | C-fam.org.

This will never make the news.  But it’s the most news-worthy article I’ve read all week.

“The greatest negative outcomes were found among children of lesbian mothers. This contradicts defective studies popularized by the media claiming children fare as well, or better, with lesbian mothers. Regnerus’ study showed negative outcomes for these adult children in 25 of 40 categories including far higher rates of sexual assault (23% of children with lesbian mothers were touched sexually by a parent or adult, in contrast to 2% raised by married parents), poorer physical health, increased depression, increased marijuana use and higher unemployment (69% of children from lesbian households were on welfare, compared to 17% of those with married parents).”

“What should I tell my kids about sex?” | Simcha Fisher.

Most important parts:
“There is so much here that one thing is clear: there is no such thing as The Talk, singular.”

“This education has to begin at an early age, in an age-appropriate way. One reader sums it up this way: “5-year-olds need to understand what modesty is, and why our bodies need to be given an appropriate amount of respect. 7-year-olds need to be able to ask questions (and get answers) when they see “weird” magazine covers at the grocery store. 10-year-olds need to have some understanding of their biology. And so on. I don’t think there is an age that is too early to plant the seeds of modesty, purity, and chastity because it involves so much more than [sexual intercourse]. It is ultimately ordered to charity and the basic understanding that all people are created in the image and likeness of God.””

The whole article is worth the read.

Security at pro-choice White House counts unborn children – Washington Times.

Douglas Johnson, legislative director of the National Right to Life Committee, said there’s a disconnect at the White House.

“It is ironic that President Obama’s staff recognizes the existence of unborn babies for purposes of providing security within the White House — yet, there is no indication that President Obama has any problem with the fact that throughout the District of Columbia, abortion is now legal for any reason up to the moment of birth,” Mr. Johnson said in a statement.

Pornography Is for Cowards

Pornography Is for Cowards | Daily News | NCRegister.com.

“Porn creates a world in which men are insulated from hurt and the possibility of rejection. In the storyline of porn, men are cast in the role of “the most important person on the planet.” We are the center of the universe, and everything revolves around us.


Absolutely nothing is allowed into our experience that would challenge our will, play with our emotions or wound our ego. All the perfectly air-brushed and HD-quality citizens of our world are smiling, desiring and accepting, and there is certainly no chance for hurt, pain or rejection. We are given the illusion of intimacy without the risk of vulnerability.


The more a man grows accustomed to this, the more he will prefer safety to sanctity. Having lodged his heart many nights in the all-inclusive resort of the fantasy woman, he will cringe at the idea of an adventurous but dangerous expedition into real love. And when God calls that man to initiate authentic intimacy with a flesh-and-blood woman, the lustful coward will cower in fear, terrified of the sanctifying vulnerability that such a task requires.”

If you are in need of help in ending a pornography addiction, the resources are plentiful.

Please, if you need it, get help. Save yourself, save your relationships, save your marriage.  Have courage.
