Where's Newsweek Now?!

Saudi religious police arrest 8 Christians

"Saudi Arabia's religious police arrested eight Christians, including one who was beaten in front of his 5-year-old son, according to a Washington, D.C.-based human rights group."

Where's Newsweek now when we need them? They screamed outrage over the alleged flushing of a religious book but are they going to investigate and report the atrocities committed against Christians-human beings?

"One year ago, religious police imprisoned a Catholic foreign worker, Brian O'Conner, for "preaching Christianity" and allegedly selling drugs, though the famly insists the charges are trumped up and his only "crime" was to be seen praying."

Pope's Opposition to Fertility Referendum Upsets Italian Politicians

Well, it looks like the Italians will be figuring out who's in charge at the Vatican. I wonder if the rest of Europe is becoming aware?

"Addressing the Italian bishops' conference, the pope said Monday the family was essential in Italian society.He commended the bishops for defending the rights of embryos saying it was the bishops' duty to "illuminate and motivate Catholics and all citizens."'

What good news has come out of France and the Netherlands on voting down the EU Constitution this week. Our prayers are being answered. YEA GOD!

The "Take Back America Conference" this week's speaker

Mocking the Catholic Church and the Sacrament of Confession here.

Prayers for Donna Brazile, her confessor, and her Bishop.

"Brazile appeared to ridicule the Catholic Church while noting that she did not expect her local bishop to contact her to give her political talking points. In an apparent reference to the pedophilia scandal in the Church, Brazile lampooned a hypothetical confessional exchange between herself and a priest. "Bless me father for I have sinned. What about you?" she said."

Embryo Adoptions & Catholics

Catholics Split on Embryo Issue

"The Vatican has not yet taken a stand. But if Pope Benedict XVI rules against embryo adoption, as some doctrinal conservatives expect, it could create a fissure between Catholics and evangelical Protestants, who have enthusiastically promoted embryo adoption and enlisted the White House's support for it."

Michelle Malkin's Column-Dirty Books for Children

'Educational' smut for kids

This is so very typical. They think that if they shove this stuff hard enough at people that no one will pay any attention. Wrong! That's what bloggers do best--unravel their plans of deception. We alert others.
Keep an eye out for this dirty little book!

Communion Service in Boston church does not replace Mass

Communion service at Boston church does not replace Mass

"Appeal Committee co-chairwoman at St. Jeremiah’s Mary Beth Carmody said parishioners in other Boston parishes had said the service, held in a church, can replace the Mass, up until a church is deconsecrated."

I don't think so.

And if there are other parishes within driving distance then all should go to Mass there.

Our Prayers Continue-Changes in Richmond, VA

Bishop enforces appropriate liturgical practice in diocese

"Self-monitoring wasn’t working, the bishop explained in a May 29 article. These checks were needed because some churches were functioning outside the traditional norms of Catholicism."

We continue to pray for all Bishops and all dioceses where there are apparent situations that are in dire need of great attention, direction, and foremost-correction.
