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

Africa is an unholy mess, but you can help...

This one is personal for Your Humble Narrator, kiddies. I have friends who immigrated from Burkina Faso [formerly Upper Volta for you old school Risk players] a couple of years ago and just got their children out last week. I also have friends working in Burkina for the Mennonite Central Committee, trying to help the people there as best they can. [Even heretics can do good works, kiddies.]

Sahel Food Crisis: Burkina Faso Refugee Camp


Donate Now The temporary refugee camp in Fererio, northern Burkina Faso, is about 30 miles from the Malian border. According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, more than 65,000 refugees have fled rebel violence in Mali for Burkina Faso since January 2012. Many thousands more are in neighboring countries. 

Burkina Faso—along with other countries in the Sahel—is already facing a severe food crisis after rains failed, food prices rose and instability in the region limited migrant work. Catholic Relief Services is helping refugees cope with this worsening emergency through food distributions and by offering water, sanitation and hygiene facilities.

About Me

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.
