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

Totalitarian Pennsylvania Update.

Wow, one will soon be able to defend oneself in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Imagine that.

Corbett will sign Castle Doctrine - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

HARRISBURG -- Without debate, the state Senate today approved a bill expanding self-defense rights and sent it to Gov. Tom Corbett for his signature.

Corbett will sign the bill, said his spokesman Kevin Harley.

By a 45-5 vote, the Senate approved an expansion of the so-called Castle Doctrine.

Under current law, a person can use deadly force -- without retreat -- in his or her home. Outside the home, using lethal force to defend oneself requires first taking steps away from an assailant. The bill approved today allows someone to shoot an attacker without retreat outside the home -- anywhere a person is legally allowed to be.

Supporters called it "stand your ground" legislation. Critics call it "shoot first" legislation.

During a lengthy House debate in April, opponents claimed the bill if enacted would create a "Wild West" mentality in Pennsylvania. But those voting for the bill said it sends a message to criminals that people will no longer be fearful of lawsuits or prosecution if they act when their lives are at risk.

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.
