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

Libya endgame nigh as rebels celebrate in Tripoli


Oops! How did a photo of the new Martin Luther King Jr. statue get in here?

Libya's endgame appears to be at hand, bringing to a climax an uprising against Muammar Qaddafi that just weeks ago appeared to be stalled by inexperience, disunity, and a lack of resources.

For months, Libya has been stalemated as rebels have surged forward, only to be pushed back by Qaddafi loyalists. But aided by NATO airstrikes and better organization, rebels have been steadily building momentum.

On Sunday, rebel groups fighting in the west of Libya linked up with armed protesters inside Tripoli and seized Green Square. They insist it has been renamed "Martyr's Square," and a street party was under way there, according to Sky News. CNN reported that at 4:30 am local time that any celebrations were over, and rebel troops controlled the square.

While Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi's whereabouts are unknown, rebels have reportedly captured at least some of his sons. One of his eldest sons, Mohammed Qaddafi, was giving an interview to Al Jazeera at about 8:30 p.m. Eastern time saying he was in rebel custody when gunfire broke out in his home and the line was abruptly cut off.

While there are bound to be Qaddafi loyalists still about, it's hard to imagine a scenario where Qaddafi remains in power.

About Me

My photo
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.
