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

Erik Martin, Requiescat In Pace.

Super Heroes never die. They live forever in the hearts of the people whose lives they touched and in the memories of men of good will the world over.

From Bleeding Cool:

Erik Martin, Electron Boy, 14, Passes


Last year, we ran a story about Erik Martin, of Bellevue, a young boy with cancer who was literally transformed into his self-created superhero persona Electron Boy by the Make-A-Wish Foundation in Washington which created a day for him to save people in distreess in full Electron Boy costume, and to defeat his nemesis Dr Dark and his sidekick Blackout Boy.

As a result, he even received a custom made copy of an Electron Boy comic book to top it off.

The sad news is that Erik passed away this morning in Seattle’s Children’s Hospital. Eric had a short life. But thanks to the Make A Wish Foundation, he spent one day of it as a real life superhero… he’s certainly been an inspiration to many.

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.
