It seems Pope Francis needs to brush up on his Tertullian!

It has been reported (in The ChristLast Media, I must note) that the current Pope does not like the phrase "lead us not into temptation...

"Let no freedom be allowed to novelty, because it is not fitting that any addition should be made to antiquity. Let not the clear faith and belief of our forefathers be fouled by any muddy admixture." -- Pope Sixtus III

Noted Catholic Senator Patrimony begins slaughtering innocents as expected.

Wow. Only a couple of weeks and little Bobbie is well on his way to Hell.

What a good Catholic he is. Will any bishop or priest have the courage to deny him the Blessed Sacrament? I'm guessing no.

Evening Sun: Abortion battle greets Casey
Washington — U.S. Sen. Bob Casey was told by opponents of abortion Monday that they will be praying for him — and watching how he votes.

In a sometimes tense meeting, hundreds of Pennsylvanians on Capitol Hill for the annual March for Life rally questioned Casey about whether he was indebted to abortion rights groups because of money he had taken in his 2006 campaign.

Even though Casey, D-Pa., is opposed to abortion, there were widespread groans when he explained his support for the morning-after pill.

"We're going to continue to pray for you, and pray that you do what you know is right," said Denise Johnston, of Oakmont, toward the end of the meeting.

Casey, speaking to a standing-room-only crowd of all ages in a Senate office building, calmly answered questions for several minutes.

"I respect the fact that we disagree," said Casey, a freshman who defeated Sen. Rick Santorum, a Republican who was one of the Senate's most steadfast abortion opponents in the Nov. 7 general election.

Casey said his opposition to abortion does not come from his Roman Catholic faith but because he thinks, based upon biology, that a fetus should be protected.

"I just don't think a church or a faith doctrine can dictate what you do as a public official," Casey said. "It can inform, I believe, and inspire, and be part of what you consider, but I think you have to make a determination as a public official based upon what you believe to be the truth."

He said he's not indebted to individuals or groups who contributed to his campaign.

"When they give me support, I don't say I'm going to carry your water on every issue," Casey said. "They know that we disagree."

He said he supports the morning-after pill because he believes it is contraception, and is one way to reduce the number of unwanted pregnancies. The pill is a high dose of the most common ingredient in regular birth control pills that, taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex, can lower the risk of pregnancy by up to 89 percent.

1) After conception, it is murder. This pill you support works after conception.
2) Contraception is a mortal sin, too.

BTW, kiddies, notice the phrase "the risk of pregnancy".

Casey, the son of the late Pennsylvania Gov. Robert P. Casey, who frequently clashed with the Democratic Party over his opposition to abortion, reminded those in attendance that some in his party opposed his candidacy because of his anti-abortion views.

Some people clapped when one man stood up and said he was happy to see the Democratic Party put forth an anti-abortion candidate.

After the meeting, Rachel Brandt, of Acme, said she disagreed with Casey's view on the morning-after pill and what he said about how he makes his decisions, but she still was mostly satisfied with his answers.

"He talks very straightforwardly and doesn't try to politically choose his words," Brandt said. "We can disagree on issues and that doesn't mean we can't respect each other."

First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
