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

Obama Campaign Launches AttackWatch.com

President Obama’s re-election campaign launched a Web site on Tuesday called AttackWatch.com that encourages supporters to help dismiss false accusations made about the president’s record and to report what they believe is misinformation about his policies.

In an e-mail sent to Mr. Obama’s supporters on Tuesday, his campaign manager, Jim Messina, wrote that AttackWatch.com was resource that would allow “you to nip these attacks in the bud before they show up in the airwaves and in e-mails and then fight back with the truth.”

He said that people who signed up for the Web site would be on the “front lines — you’ll hear about false claims as soon as they come up, and we’ll count on you to spread the truth to your friends and personal networks and let us know about new smears whenever you hear them.”

The Web site also urges people to follow a new Twitter account @attackwatch that had more than 750 followers by Tuesday night and had already started to issue regular updates, including one that says the Republican candidate Mitt Romney improperly blamed job losses in 2007 and 2008 on Mr. Obama.

But the Web site – and Twitter account – became fodder for Republicans on Tuesday night who took to the Twitter platform, using the hashtag #attackwatch with hundreds of posts denouncing the approach. Many of them included a dose of humor.

A Twitter user describing himself as “Dave in Texas” asked the organizers of AttackWatch: “How many people work there, and are those created jobs or just saved?


Another Twitter user, Haley Sotelo, wrote @AttackWatch Send me to jail. My peaceful personal attack on Obama is to not vote for him in 2012. I <3 @MittRomney! What are you gonna do?”

Valerie Biendara wrote on Twitter: “Hey @AttackWatch, I’m enjoying all the jokes at you n @BarackObama. Thanks 4 ending my day w laughter!

To report an “attack,” users fill out an online form describing the claim and click on a pull-down menu that gives them multiple options to explain where the attack came from.

Quick! Somebody report that Tea Party hag Marxine Waters!

As part of the launch, content is already on the site seeking to dismiss questions raised by some of the candidates, as well as Glenn Beck, about Mr. Obama’s commitment to Israel. It quotes Mr. Beck as adding to the “growing collection of false allegations about the President’s record on Israel.”

Mr. Beck says: “We’re talking a lot about Israel. The President of the United States, I believe has betrayed our last strong ally.”
In response, the Web site rebuts this accusation and urges Mr. Obama’s supporters to “share with their friends.”

Hold on there, kiddies. Beck said "I believe". This is a Stalinist attempt to criminalize opposing opinion. This has nothing to do with the truth.

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.
