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

Dr. David Sencer, Requiescat In Pace.

Official known for '76 swine flu fiasco has died - Fox 23 Maine

ATLANTA (AP) - Federal health officials say Dr. David Sencer has died. He's a former director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention whose tenure was tainted by controversy over a swine flu vaccine campaign in 1976.

Sencer died in an Atlanta hospital Monday. He was 86.

He was director of the CDC from 1966 through 1977 and served as New York City's health commissioner during the AIDS crisis of the 1980s.

Sencer left the CDC after an ill-fated campaign to vaccinate Americans against swine flu. The epidemic he warned about never materialized, and the campaign was suspended after dozens of reports of a paralyzing condition linked to the vaccine. He also helped launch a successful effort to rid the world of smallpox.

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.
