Catholic Spirit: A Special Respect Life Time in West Virginia

The following article appeared at The Catholic Spirit WV on Sept 23. We appreciate our Catholic partners for defending life and sharing the Illuminate Campaign and Illuminate Sunday with their people via this article. We also encourage people to use the information at the end of the article to contact Gov. Tomblin and share your thoughts with him. Click here for original article.

WEST?VIRGINIA—For decades parishes throughout the United States have observed “Respect Life Sunday” on the first Sunday of October. The prayers of the liturgy uphold the culture of life, the church’s call to cherish human life from conception to natural death. This year many Protestant churches in our state will observe on the very same date “Illuminate Sunday,”  a time of special prayer for victims of abortion and those affected by abortion. In a beautiful way, on this Oct. 6 churches across the state will witness to West Virginians how central the gospel of life is to the Christian message.

The worship event of our Protestant sisters and brothers is part of the “Illuminate Campaign.” Since charges were brought against a Charleston abortion clinic earlier this year regarding malpractice, the attorney general of West Virginia has investigated the need for regulation of the clinics in our state. The campaign supports the further regulation of clinics, especially in light of such disasters in other states such as the Gosnell case in Philadelphia. [Read more...]

Engaging Weekend: Liberty University Beats ObamaCare, Abortion Advocates Call fetal Pain Science Phony, #MarchOnMedia Campaign Launched

Liberty University Beats Obama HHS-Abortion Mandate in Appeals Court

Liberty University has won a major victory for religious freedom in their case against ObamaCare. The Fourth Circuit court of Appeals has issued a stay of the mandate on behalf of Liberty University until after a petition of cert has been filed with the Supreme Court. A recent article explains that Liberty’s case against ObamaCare is the most comprehensive on record: “Liberty Counsel’s challenge to ObamaCare is the most comprehensive case pending, challenging (1) the employer mandate; (2) the abortion mandate for religious employers; (3) the abortion mandate for individuals; and (4) the entire law because tax bills must originate in the House.” You can read the entire Court ruling here. This is a major case because if successful it could potentially unravel the remaining barely handing threads of ObamaCare. The health care bill has been getting hammered in the legal courts, as well as the court of popular opinion and poll after poll shows a majority of Americans want the bill repealed. It’s absurd to think that Liberty University, or any other religious employer, or business owner with religious convictions against abortion, should be forced to violate their convictions by providing abortion drugs and services in employee health care plans. As a proud Liberty alum I hope their case wins, sets precedent, and helps bring down the health care bill. Click here for original article.

UPDATE: It seems the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals has reversed its earlier decision to grant a stay pending an appeal to the Supreme Court. A report states:   “the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals issued two conflicting orders in Liberty Counsel’s ObamaCare case, Liberty University v. Lew (formerly called Liberty University v. Geithner). The court of appeals first issued a stay of the Mandate. But, last evening, the same court reversed itself and issued another order denying the stay of the Mandate.” Click here for original article.

Abortion Activists Call Fetal Pain “Phony Science” Despite Considerable Evidence

Writing at Life News, Dave Andrusko comments on a recent article that calls the science of fetal pain “phony.” Common sense says that an unborn child at 20 weeks can feel pain. Why? Because, if that child was born prematurely at 20 weeks and you stuck it with a needle to draw blood, the child would cry. It would cry because it can feel pain and like most children doesn’t like being stuck with a needle. So denying the science and conclusion that an unborn child can feel pain at 20 weeks is intellectually dishonest at best. Andrusko says that “to label the assertion that the unborn child can experience pain by the 20th week a ‘lie’ and ‘phony science’ (the words are Katie McDonough’s but they are hardly unique to her) is simply to substitute overheated rhetoric for a dispassionate assessment of the evidence.” It shows how far the abortion lobby is willing to go to protect their money making scheme. They will call pro-lifers “anti-science” for being against abortion. But when they are presented with sound scientific evidence for fetal pain they turn a blind eye and try to ignore it completely. The reasons to support legalized murder of the unborn are crumbling. Click here for original article.

We’re Not Gonna Take It: Time to Expose the Lies of the Pro-Abortion Media

Remember the immense and voluminous amount of media coverage of the Kermit Gosnell case? Do you also remember the in-depth coverage of the Douglas Karpen investigation? No? Don’t worry, you don’t remember such coverage because it never happened. In fact, the media did all it could to cover up the Gosnell case until the absolute last minute when a few minutes here and there was given to it. Thankfully a coalition of pro-life organizations, including Lila Rose and Live Action, Jill Stanek, Americans United for Life, Media Research Center, and The Radiance Foundation are launching their #MarchOnMedia campaign to demand the media end its silence on the issue of abortion. Their campaign is much like our very own Illuminate campaign, which seeks to shine a light on the abortion industry in West Virginia. The fact is, the media is not going to expose the violence, the hypocrisy, the lies, and the deception of women perpetrated by the abortion industry. But we are. Will you join us is exposing the abortion industry and shining a light on their dark deeds? Text familywv to 69302 for more information. Click here for original article.

Catholic Parish to Boy Scout troop: Obey the faith on homosexuality or go somewhere else

A Catholic church in Wisconsin has told the Boy Scout troop it has sponsored for 20 years that it will have to meet somewhere else if it changes their membership policy to allow open homosexuality. According to a recent article: “Boy Scout Troop 90, which meets at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Altoona, revised its membership policy to state that no boy could be denied membership ‘on the basis of sexual orientation or preference alone.’ Scoutmaster Bob Thill told the Eau Claire Leader-Telegramthat while Troop 90’s families were evenly split on the issue, the troop changed the rule because ‘it’s the way of the times, and I guess you’ve got to keep up with it.’ This might be the ridiculous statement on why the troop should change their policy. If “the times” say that pedophilia is ok and the Boy Scouts vote to allow it, will this scout master change the policy again? Just because “the times” change doesn’t mean our values have to follow.

What Exactly Did the Pope Mean about Homosexuality?

Pope FrancisThe speculation continues to rage over the statement Monday by Pope Francis regarding homosexuals so I thought I’d take the opportunity to sift through the various viewpoints to see if any sense can be made from the ruckus.

In an article from Godfather Politics, the Pope is quoted as stating,

“If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?”

Admittedly, it is a very general statement that could be interpreted several ways which means it is, if nothing else, politically naïve.  For some reason, that surprises me that a Pope would be so naïve but one must consider that the early actions of this Pope have been refreshingly apolitical or unusually unpretentious to say the least.

Media have taken note of his total disregard for his own safety in his effort to be approachable, and his practice of carrying his own bag onto an airplane would have been unheard of before he ascended to the Papacy.  Previous Pope’s rarely, if ever, were seen carrying their own luggage of any kind and most remained within the protective cocoon of the “Pope-mobile” when traveling by road where people are gathered.  But I digress…

Predictably, the liberal side of the political spectrum has rejoiced at his words regarding homosexuality, taking it as a softening in the church’s position with regard to acceptance of homosexuals.  They are very busy quoting the Bible’s passage that states, “Judge not, lest ye be judged.” But are completely ignoring the minimally four other passages in both the old and new testaments that condemn homosexual behavior as an sin before God.  Human Rights Campaign president Chad Griffin was quoted in Newsmax as saying, still, as long as gays…

“are told in churches big and small that their lives and their families are disordered and sinful because of how they were born — how God made them — then the church is sending a deeply harmful message.”

Therein is the true fallacy in the entire issue.  Homosexuality has been decisively shown to be a voluntary choice rather than “how God made them.”  Until people realize that this bill-of-goods never held water and is being used to further political agendas, we will continue to be forced to fight a straw-man battle with the “gay gene” supporters.

Meanwhile, as was my first reaction, many conservatives’ immediate reaction was disappointment with what appeared to be that softening of position that made liberals jump for joy.  However, after taking some time to sift through the thoughts of others, I have begun to more clearly see that the Pope was speaking in terms of the person or persons, not their actions.

He is acknowledging the doctrine best described as “Love the sinner, hate the sin.”  He is saying that it is not his place to “judge” homosexuals, but rather to minister to them in a manner that encourages them to come to Christ and repent of their sinful ways, and nothing more.

Note that his statement included the caveat that it is not his place to judge IF the person concerned is searching for the Lord (Truth) and is sincere in his effort.  What I believe he is saying is that if the person is trying to find the Truth, then he will come to believe, accept Christ, and renounce/repent of his sins.  While they might not be 100% successful immediately, the important thing is the person’s sincerity and willful effort to repent and do good instead of evil.

Newsmax included an additional portion of the Pope’s statement that preceded the one quoted in Godfather Politics.

“We shouldn’t marginalize people for this. They must be integrated into society.”

This appears to me to be saying that we should not be shutting out those who have been “homosexuals” because of past sins if they are sincerely attempting to change their ways.  This is both consistent with Jesus teaching of forgiveness, repentance, and the fact that if sincere confession and repentance is made, then God has forgotten the sins of the past.  This is one of the most precious gifts of God’s grace that is given when we surrender to His will and turn our life over to Him.

So, my take on the Pope’s statement is that while it is being exploited by the liberals to further their established agenda of foisting homosexuality on the whole of society as simply a harmless personal lifestyle “choice” (while claiming it is not a choice). It is far from being any kind of endorsement or blessing upon their sinful behavior.

Had it been seen as that by the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church, I believe it would have caused a ruckus so loud that it could be heard from Rome to Australia.  While I have not always agreed with the details of some of the Catholic teachings, their bedrock doctrine has always included a clear delineation that homosexuality is a sin.  Nothing in the Pope’s statement contradicts that position.  It simply reinforces the view that we should be encouraging and charitable toward the righteous and the sinner who shows a desire to repent and turn our lives toward Christ.

Sometimes it is far more important to think before speaking and to listen carefully to both the words and the context of what is being said.  Those who want it to mean something that it doesn’t usually cherry-pick the words they like and ignore the rest.

Engaging Weekend: Catholic Teacher Fired After Gay Wedding, House Votes to Defund ObamaCare, Media Ignores Planned Parenthood Fraud

FPC-BlogUpdate-EngagingWeek

Engaging Weekend is a collection of articles you might have missed over the weekend. But we thought they were important and wanted to make sure you had a chance to read them.

Catholic high school cans teacher after his big, gay wedding

In a state like California, this is sure to start some controversy. But this is an important story and the results of the events taking place could have ramifications for us all. It seems a Catholic school employed a homosexual teacher for a number of years, and knew he was gay. But then he decided to get married in a very public way and pictures were published in the local newspaper. The Catholic school then decided not to renew his contract. The school said their decision was based on doctrine: “While the school does not discriminate against teachers or other school employees based on their private lifestyle choices, public displays of behavior that are directly contrary to church teachings are inconsistent with these values.” This, to me, is a very tentative position to take. If a faith-based school is going to employ a homosexual and say that their “private life” is of no consequence to them, but then fire that same teacher for making his private life public, it seems inconsistent. Not just morally and biblically inconsistent, it seems legally inconsistent. What I am most concerned about is the possible challenge to the church’s autonomy in hiring based on adherence to doctrine for churches. The Hosanna-Tabor case has set a precedent, but as we’ve seen recently, that doesn’t seem to be an obstacle for the Obama administration and our current Supreme Court. This is one to watch.

House votes 232-185 to block the IRS from enforcing ObamaCare

The House of Representatives is trying once again to defund ObamaCare and prevent government over-reach into healthcare. A recent article reports: “The House voted Friday to prevent the IRS from enforcing any aspect of ObamaCare, a bill meant to exact revenge against an agency that Republicans say is incapable of neutral enforcement of the law. Members approved the Keep the IRS Off Your Health Care Act in a 232-185 vote. Four Democrats supported the bill along with every Republican.” Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem any of the representatives from West Virginia voted for this much needed measure. Americans have overwhelmingly displayed contempt for ObamaCare and desire to see it repealed and replaced with measures that will actually benefit hard-working families. Republicans in the House have responded by trying to defund ObamaCare, which would effectively halt enforcement of the bill, but Democrats have continued to push it through despite its harming effect on health care and the economy. One has to wonder, if this bill is so great for Americans, why is Congress exempting themselves and their staff from it? It seems to me if it was truly a great bill they would set the example and be the first to follow its requirements. Actions speak louder than partisan rhetoric. Click here for original article.

Mainstream Media Ignores Massive Fraud at Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz

Our readers know by now how much I detest Planned Parenthood. Those who try to convince me that they “do some good” quickly get my response of “I don’t go to the garbage can to find a little ‘good food.’” Planned Parenthood has done more harm to women and children in America (and the world) than most organizations. And they are doing it with the help of President Obama and out tax dollars. Speaking of our tax dollars, Planned Parenthood is abusing our money.  You wouldn’t know that Planned Parenthood is setting fraud cases in various states because the mainstream media isn’t covering it. They love Planned Parenthood and will quickly cover for them. Not us. We are seeking to bring the abortion industry into the spotlight, fraud and all. Next time you pay your taxes, remember that Planned Parenthood will get a lot of your money and will then abuse it, the media will cover it up, and President Obama will then give them more.

Majority of Americans Back 20-Week Abortion Ban, Women More Than Men

As liberals continue to claim conservatives are waging a “war on women,” a new poll shows that a majority of Americans support a ban on abortions at 20 weeks. A recent article says:  “A total of 55 percent want a 20-week limit while 30 percent favor the current 24 week limit.” The best part about this new poll is that it shows the 20 week abortion ban is supported by more women than men. So if conservatives are waging a war on women, why are women supporting a 2o week abortion ban? Oh, that’s right, because people in general, but women specifically know that unborn children, not masses of tissue are growing inside them. And to subject that very real human to the torture of abortion after 20 weeks when they can feel pain, would be inhuman. Click here for original article.

New poll: Born again evangelicals by far most likely to support a child’s right-to-life

Bonus: A new poll shows that evangelicals are the group most likely to be pro-life and support restrictions on abortion. It must have something to do with recognizing that every person is made ‘in the image of God” and that whole “thou shalt not kill” thing. Click here for original article.

Is It Harder to Get a Gun or an Abortion?

unborn babyShould it be easier to get a gun or to get an abortion? That is a question HuffPo recently discussed and found they were upset that it’s easier to get a gun than it is an abortion in many states. I won’t pretend to understand their logic or agree with their conclusion. After all, I support the 2nd Amendment and exercise my rights to own and operate firearms legally as often as possible. And while I could have exercised my legal right to an abortion I declined to do so three times and enjoy three amazing kids as a result.

However, according to an article commenting on the recent HuffPo piece it’s a good idea to enact gun control in order to save the life of a child, but regulations on abortion clinics and waiting periods for abortions are too strenuous. The article comments:

“The authors mentioned gun control in connection to saving lives, but quickly dismissed the idea that waiting periods for counseling before abortion might save a baby’s life – a highly debatable point and one that shouldn’t matter to liberals who say anything is worth doing ‘if it saves the life of just one child.’ The pair lamented that 24-hour waiting periods for abortion made the process ‘more drawn out for everyone and less accessible to people who live in rural areas or have to take time off of work.’ Simply buying a gun ought to be at least as ‘drawn out’ as murdering an infant in the womb, it seems.”

So even though abortion kills approximately 1.2 million kids every year in the United States, as opposed to gun violence killing roughly 30,000, the writers at HuffPo still want abortion regs eased while gun regs are tightened. Hmmm…call me crazy, but I smell ideological hypocrisy here. [Read more...]

Student Kicked Out of Class Wins Free Speech Case

A court ruled that a student’s free speech rights were violated when he was kicked out of class for saying that he does not “accept gays.” An article explains: ”The teacher…got into a heated argument with student Daniel Glowacki in an economics class after Glowacki said he objected to homosexuality because he is Catholic. Judge Patrick Duggan ruled that the First Amendment protects Glowacki’s speech. As the judge notes in the first sentence of the opinion, the case is an example of the tension between anti-bullying policies in public schools and the free speech guarantees of the First Amendment.”

This is an important victory because it further solidifies the constitutional rights of free speech for students in school. This extends not just to their right to disapprove of the homosexual lifestyle, but their right to share their faith, and express their faith in school. The court did the right thing in this case and helped further bolster the First Amendment rights of students in public schools. Click here for original article.

Engaging Weekend: Nancy Pelosi Told to Leave the Catholic Church Over Abortion, Reconciling Non-Discrimination Principles with Civil Liberties, Exodus International Calls It Quits

Engaging Weekend is a collection of articles you might have missed over the weekend. But we thought they were important and wanted to make sure you had a chance to read them.

Priests to Pelosi: condemn abortion or leave the Church

Nancy Pelosi and others of her ilk often try to act as if their Catholic doctrine approves of abortion. It is absurd and everyone knows the Catholic Church vehemently opposes abortion as murder. So when Pelosi once again tried to tie her faith to approval for abortion Father Frank Pavone shot her down in a letter that demanded she either condemn abortion or leave the Catholic Church. Here’s part of what he said: “Abortion is not sacred ground; it is sacrilegious ground. To imagine God giving the slightest approval to an act that dismembers a child he created is offensive to both faith and reason,” Pavone wrote. “And to say that a question about the difference between a legal medical procedure and murder should not ‘have anything to do with politics’ reveals a profound failure to understand your own political responsibilities, which start with the duty to secure the God-given right to life of every citizen. Whatever Catholic faith you claim to respect and practice, it is not the faith that the Catholic Church teaches,” Pavone continued. “And I speak for countless Catholics when I say that it’s time for you to stop speaking as if it were.” Click here for original article.

The Boy Scouts: They Gave Us No Other Choice

end of the Boy ScoutsI’ve been trying to keep up with all the news happening with the Boy Scouts. But, to be honest, it’s tough. It seems just about every day another story surfaces about leaders leaving, troops closing, or sponsors bailing. I said this would happen if the Boy Scouts reversed their policy banning open homosexuality in the BSA. Conservative family groups and churches alike aren’t going to support an organization that condones a lifestyle contrary to their most basic, core convictions.

The only choice for them was to part ways with an organization they deeply cared about in order to be true to their beliefs. Frankly, that’s the kind of society we are living in today; one in which often we are forced to choose between our faith convictions and something else.

A pastor had to make this choice after the policy decision by the BSA and ultimately decided to resign from his position with the Trapper Trails Council (the 3rd largest group in the country). In his resignation letter he said: “We will not follow the BSA, Trapper Trails Council nor Mormons in endorsing what scripture and the church of Jesus Christ through the ages has defined as sin.” I doubt this was a decision made lightly or in the heat of the moment. Nonetheless people of faith recognize that more and more we are being asked to decide between our convictions and some aspect of society.

It is noteworthy that churches across America are split on how to handle the BSA policy decision. Conservative denominations like the Baptists and Catholics increasingly are severing ties with local troops. And while certain Methodist and Presbyterian churches are making independent decisions to sever ties, some are opting to accept the changes and continue their partnership. Few, as the pastor formerly with the Trapper Trails Council, are chartering independent troops that will not comply with the new policy. [Read more...]

The Effort to Stop the Slaughter – Visual Evidence That Anyone Should Understand

As promised on Wednesday, here are some of the photos of the current displays in three locations in the Parkersburg area.

Abortion is killing 3200 babies every day in America.  Let that number sink in, folks!  That is just over one per 30 seconds of every day, 24/7.

Some really dedicated people of Parkersburg worked very hard to make this graphic statistic reach as many people as possible by providing the visual in three places in the Wood County area that have high levels of traffic every day.

The photos tell the story so I will hush up today and let them do my job for me.   I will be back at it on Wednesday as usual.  Be sure to take that uninformed acquaintance we all have for a ride and see if your route doesn’t coincidentally take you past one of these locations.

Pope Francis Says Pro-Abortion Politicians Cannot Receive Communion

Pope Francis has made a lot of waves since being elected Pope of the Catholic Church. Thankfully, they are good waves as the newest Pope seeks to serve in humility. His latest wave comes as he issues a letter to all Catholic Cardinals and Bishops stating that those people, particularly politicians and world leaders, that are pro-abortion and pro-euthanasia are not eligible for communion. This is sure to upset the likes of Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi who claim to be practicing Catholics while supporting abortion. Part of Pope Francis’ letter states:

“[people] cannot receive Holy Communion and at the same time act with deeds or words against the commandments, particularly when abortion, euthanasia, and other grave crimes against life and family are encouraged. This responsibility weighs particularly over legislators, heads of governments, and health professionals. These are the guidelines we need for this time in history.” We hope the Pope continues to be staunchly pro-life and condemn the violence of abortion and any practice that does not convey the sanctity of human life.
