Gay history month in city schools seen part of trend

I know how I missed this one...the elections! That took this right off the radar. But I'm already familiar with their "game plan"--GLSEN. And btw...DO NOT turn a blind eye to this group! Either group. They do have $$ and NEA is quite strong!

The surprise addition of Gay and Lesbian History Month to the Philadelphia public school system’s October calendar has caused concern among local parents, and may be a harbinger of things to come.

DUH! They've "been coming"!


Some of the fuel behind the movement is coming from what many believe is an overly cozy alliance between the National Education Association (NEA) and gay activist organizations, such as the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), the nation’s leading pro-homosexuality education group. “GLSEN is very closely aligned with the Gay-Lesbian caucus inside the NEA,” said Jeralee Smith, a California school teacher and the outgoing chair of the NEA’s Ex-Gay Educators Caucus.

“When the NEA’s Gay Lesbian Caucus started, I’m sure they wanted to see a gay president in charge of the NEA,” Smith said. “Well, that happened when Bob Chase became president. Chase was outed as a gay man by the Washington Blade around the end of his term as NEA president. “It was during Bob Chase’s presidency that the Sexual Orientation Task Force was initiated, giving a whole arm of NEA leadership to gay-lesbian-bisexual-transgender (GLBT) causes,” Smith said. “In 2002, a 60-page document detailing NEA’s support of GLBT causes was adopted by the NEA executive committee, and handed to NEA delegates as a report which, technically, didn’t even require a vote.”

"New Version" of Bible

Here we go again...
Controversial “politically correct” version of the Bible published in Germany
According to the AFP news agency, the new version of the Sacred Scriptures was presented at a book fair in Frankfurt. Entitled, “The Bible in a More Just Language,” the translation has Jesus no longer referring to God as “Father,” but as “our Mother and Father who are in heaven.”Likewise, Jesus is no longer referred to as the “Son” but rather as the “child” of God. The title “Lord” is replaced with “God” or “the Eternal One.” The devil, however, is still referred to with masculine pronouns.

Petition to Defund Planned Parenthood

CUT OFF TAXPAYER MONEY to the abortionist Planned Parenthood organization!

Watch informational presentation on the push to defund Planned Parenthood

*UPDATE-Jerusalem Gay Pride Event

At least they won't be parading through the city...this still isn't good. Their intent is still obvious.

Closed event to replace gay parade in Jerusalem on Friday

Parade organizers announced that the parade was officially cancelled, and pending final logistical arrangements the gay pride event will no longer consist of a march through Jerusalem's streets, rather a closed event at the stadium at Hebrew University's Givat Ram campus.


Meanwhile, religious opponents of the parade were holding what they have called a "March of Beasts" on Thursday afternoon.

The protesters were leading cows and horses along the route plotted for the gay parade, Army Radio reported. The High Court of Justice denied four petitions asking to ban the so-called march of beasts.

More-Gay pride parade organizers propose closed Jerusalem venue

News Items this week- High Court to discuss parade petitions

Labor Minister Eli Yishai - "stood as a potential obstacle to the event"-stated:
"The opposition to the parade of abomination cuts across parties, nations and religions... Those marchers cause damage to the sanctity of Jerusalem, and they do it only out of spite. I have heard the argument that they will hold a smaller parade. There is no such thing as restricting the abomination and the affliction. This march will lead to world-wide social destruction."

Changes in Israel Policy - Getting Out of Iraq

DEBKAfile Exclusive: The White House intimates to Israeli PM that his scheduled visit to Washington next Monday, Nov. 13, would be untimely

According to this official, the Baker-Hamilton panel is charting drastic changes in administration policy on Israel, whose speedy implementation is recommended as the key to extricating the US from its imbroglio in Iraq. Hinging the solution of Middle East problems as a whole on the Palestinian-Israeli issue has always been the Democratic way. It is favored in particular by Nancy Pelosi of California who, as her party’s candidate for next Speaker of the House of Representatives, will become one of Washington’s most influential politicians.

Terror Plot

U.S. cities were target of August airline plot, FBI says

A group of alleged terrorists arrested in London in August planned to blow up airliners over U.S. cities to maximize casualties, rather than over the Atlantic Ocean as many intelligence officials originally thought, according to recent remarks by a senior FBI official.

Where was this information last week? It could have been used to display the urgency and seriousness of the war on terror?

Another Update: Jerusalem Gay Pride Parade

Jerusalem gay pride march likely to be postponed: police
But, it could be postponed until next week. We continue to pray that it does not take place. But not due to violence.

Police in Israel were placed on a heightened state of alert Wednesday after Palestinian militant groups vowed to resume suicide attacks inside the Jewish state, following the deaths of 18 people, mostly women and children, from Israeli shelling in Gaza.


On Wednesday the Vatican joined in the fray, voicing "bitterness" about the march and expressing "its strongest disapproval for such an initiative which constitutes a serious affront to the feelings of millions of Jewish, Muslims and Christian believers," in the Holy City.

The Threats Continue from Around the World

Hamas Leader Calls Off Israel Cease-Fire

Hamas' exiled leader on Wednesday called off a cease-fire with Israel and militants threatened to attack Americans after 18 members of a family, including eight children, were killed in an Israeli artillery barrage on a densely populated Gaza neighborhood.

I pray that our guard is not down...O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee!

U.S. Supreme Court - Abortion

Justices Have Pointed Abortion Discourse

In an intense morning of arguments, lawyers for the Bush administration and supporters of abortion rights gave starkly contrasting views: A law passed by Congress labels it a gruesome and inhumane practice. Supporters argue that such abortions in the second trimester of pregnancy sometimes are the safest for women.

A man in the audience began shouting midway through the proceedings, disrupting the hearing briefly before police dragged him away.

Seven justices took part in questioning both sides about whether the court should defer to congressional findings that these abortions are never medically necessary. Abortion advocates disagree, saying there is strong medical evidence to the contrary.

Fr. Euteneuer's View on Election 2006

Republicans' Loss of Pro-Life, Pro-Family Principles Translated Into Loss of Power

"If the Republican Party truly wants to know why they lost, they need only look in the mirror. The most vulnerable seats in both houses were those held by politicians who had abandoned the pro-life and the pro-marriage principles that first brought them to power.

In many states, voters turned out in large numbers to defend traditional marriage, but voters were not willing to support those who would not support their values. Some so-called conservative senators were all too happy to water down or jettison their 'unwavering' defense of the unborn in the name of political expediency and now they have paid the price. Self- described Reagan conservative George Allen bragged about owning stock in Barr Pharmaceuticals-the manufacturer of Plan B-and President Bush's shameful support of this deadly drug being sold over the counter deflated conservatives' support of many candidates.

In Missouri, Sen. Jim Talent fearfully refusal to come out against the state's cloning initiative not only resulted in its passage, but the loss of his Senate seat. Sen. Rick Santorum's race in Pennsylvania is also telling. Those who espouse 'conventional wisdom' will tell you that issues like abortion never decide a race. That's a lie, as evidenced by the fact that the Democrats purposely picked a pro-life candidate, recognizing that it would neutralize the greatest advantage Santorum had in his re-election bid.

The Giuliani-McCain-Romney wing of the Republican Party is responsible for this overwhelming defeat. If the GOP truly wishes to regain the trust of pro-life, pro-family conservatives, then they must look to leaders like Sen. Sam Brownback (R-Kan.) -- who has never wavered on his principles or his defense of the innocent unborn -- as their model."

This says IT ALL! Now wake-up GOP! Focus on who your constitutes are and what THEY believe!

Now, we pick up our cross and move forward again!

Desperate Prayer Need!

Plea to let doctors kill babies with disabilities

SENIOR doctors are urging health professionals to consider permitting the euthanasia of seriously disabled newborn babies.
The proposal, by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecology, follows the increase in the number of such children surviving because of medical advances.

What are we saying here!? No-do not allow this to happen! Please GOD hear our prayers!
LORD have mercy! Please pray and fast!! Our Lady of Guadalupe pray for us!

Secular or Sacred?

More on the Washington National Cathedral: Music and Meditation at the Labyrinth, Sermons, Centering Prayer Programs-more Centering Prayer info, "Save the Earth"-Double Feature,
Sacred Circles (and I see Carol Lee Flinders is presenting soon).

You gotta see where Darth Vader is placed in the Cathedral! Whoa! (Be careful--"Don't go over to the dark side" after viewing!) All the Star Wars fans must love this and make pilgrimages to the church (?). Cathedral-Self-guided tour- "Wacky Western Gargoyles". Virtual Tour.

To find Darth Vader you have to leave the building through the ramp entrance. This is located at the northwest corner of the nave, through the double wooden doors of Lincoln Bay. Go down the ramp, and step into the parking lot. Then, turn around and look back up at the tower closest to you. He is almost impossible to see without the assistance of binoculars.

I sure would hate to see the image of an Ipod or image of Amercian Idol-Taylor Hicks in the stained glass window or on a column!

This reminds me of the time we were visiting colleges with our college bound student. We visited the campus of "The University of the South"-Swanee in TN. When we arrived we were impressed with the outside architecture of the (Episcopal sponsored private college) chapel on campus. It is Gothic looking and we thought that it was pretty until we took the inside tour of the building and property.
Our guide directed us to look up at the newly renovated stained glass windows- "You can see the image of a VW"! What? Excuse me? See what? "Yes, the artist placed the image of a Volkswagen Beetle in the stained glass." Needless to say, I was the only person in the touring/visiting group of parents and possible students, that did not see the actual image. My husband did tho. My child does not attend this college even though they offered a full 4 yr. scholarship. Horrible. Need I say more?

So, this is where we got the labyrinths, centering prayer and columbariums!? Oops, I mean this is where the 'ideas' came from -Episcopals? Be on the look out in your local Catholic diocese for the following...labyrinths, centering prayer groups/retreats, secular items displayed in windows or architecture, and of course columbariums! See - centering prayer-yoga (more here) and the see-the columbarium- "for burial of ashes". So now we encourage cremation? Building an area for ashes adjacent or inside a Catholic Church (btw this is NOT near a cemetery)? What does the church say about this? Isn't this encouraging cremation by building this structure? They do charge for the space and there's plenty of room in the area cemetery for this structure. So then what is the reason for a columbarium?

Of course they had a little bit of Liturgical Dance & Baptismal Dancing.

What's Baptismal Dancing?

Oops, I forgot to mention that they had a 'little' music- percussion too.
