CHARLIE GARD, POPE FRANCIS AND THE PONTIFICAL ACADEMY FOR LIFE

I was listening last week to Glenn Beck discussing the Charlie Gard situation with Bill O’Reilly.  During the conversation, Glenn asked Bill if he had read the “official statement” from the Pope.  Neither Bill nor I had read the actual statement.  The Pope apparently said this was a “complicated matter” and the wishes of the […]

January 20, 2017 Won’t Come Soon Enough

As happy I will be to watch Donald J. Trump be sworn in as our 45th President, that happiness will be overshadowed by the absolute ecstasy I will feel knowing that Obama and his crew are out of our White House.  Good riddance and don’t let the door hit you on your way out. This […]

I LOVE YOU BUT I WANTED YOU DEAD

Ariel Knights, 22-year old unwed mother of a pre-schooler, found herself pregnant again, even though she learned during her first pregnancy she had uterine didelphys.  The genetic condition results in a double uterus with individual cervices. After being told the second pregnancy could put her life at risk, she went to a clinic to have […]

CAUSE FOR CELEBRATION?

Not only did I have to suffer through President Obama’s second inauguration last week, but Tuesday marked the 40th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade.  Since that decision in 1973, our country has sanctioned the killing of over 55,800,000 million babies. There is very little common ground between pro-choice people and […]

WOLF WHISTLES OFFEND – KILLING THE UNBORN DOES NOT

Wolf whistles offend some but killing the unborn does not.  One such person is Princeton philosophy professor Elizabeth Harman who was offended by this billboard.  She posted it on Facebook, someone blogged about it, which then prompted Holly Kearl, founder of the Washington-based organization “Stop Street Harassment” to start a petition drive to have it […]

Liberals Are a Strange Bunch

They certainly are. When it comes to abortion, liberals will fight tooth and nail against any attempt by anyone to defend the rights of the unborn and will claim an interference with their reproductive rights.  How many times have I heard liberals screaming, “Keep your laws off my body.”  “It’s my body and no one […]

ANOTHER DEAL WITH THE DEVIL – WHAT DID THE CATHOLIC CHURCH EXPECT?

A lot has been written recently about the Obama Administration and the controversy with the Catholic Church.  The mandate in Obamacare requires all employers to provide birth control to their employees as well as abortifacients – the morning-after pills that can contribute to the abortion of a fertilized egg.  Obviously, the Catholic Church’s teachings oppose […]

ABORTION AND POLITICS

I recently read a article by Marcia Pally, author of The New Evangelicals: Expanding the Vision of the Common Good,” in which she discussed abortion and politics.  Although she opines that evangelical opposition to abortion is firm, the evangelical vote is not fixed and many evangelicals were happy with Democrat wins.  Since the mid-term elections, […]

MADE IN CHINA FOR THE CATHOLIC CHURCH – WHAT’S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?

My husband and I were recently in New York for a few days to enjoy the Christmas trees, window displays, and decorations.  While visiting St. Patrick’s Cathedral, I planned to buy a gift for my grand niece who will be receiving her First Communion in May.  I was shocked to see that a music box […]

LINGERING THOUGHTS OF THE PAST WEEK

A few stories in the news piqued my interest this week. One was the story of the eventual death of a 2-year old toddler who, a week earlier, was run over by not one, but two vans in China and left in the street to die while 18 bystanders rode or walked by before someone […]
