We must all pray for Cardinal Dolan. His recent words and actions must surely be the work of the evil spirit and “not’ the Holy Spirit. Furthermore, as one can see from the size of his girth, he has succumbed to the physical and materialistic world, and abandoned his spiritual calling (too many luncheons and dinners with big shot politicians).
After New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan appeared to suggest during a radio interview this week that he may not view pro-abortion Governor Andrew Cuomo as a Catholic “in good standing,” the archdiocese has issued a statement saying that this is not the case, and that Dolan’s remark was misunderstood. “Cardinal Dolan would not, and did not, suggest the governor might not be a Catholic in good standing going forward,” archdiocesan spokesman Joseph Zwilling said in a statement originally sent to the New York Times, and forwarded to LifeSiteNews.

AMEN, AND MAY GOD BLESS THE HON. REV. RONALD THWAITES!!!
Jamaican Minister of Education, the Hon. Rev. Ronald Thwaites, has given a resounding “No” to a proposal to have condoms freely distributed in schools. The suggestion was made by the chairman of the country’s National Family Planning Board, Dr Sandra Knight. Thwaites made it clear that Jamaican schools were not “romping shops” during the 2013/14 Sectoral Debate held at Gordon House in Kingston on May 15. “This government, lead by this Prime Minister, lifts up to our children, the ideal of faithful love and marriage between a man and a woman, as the basis of a family, even as we insist on tolerance and love for those who are disposed towards homosexuality.” ”Let it be clear, we will not be grooming children towards same-sex unions, and we will not be distributing condoms in schools,” Thwaites said. ”Restraint must be taught by example and precept,” he stressed. “Sex education, yes; condoms no.” MORE….
“Is Traditional Marriage Toast?” That question recently caught my attention as the heading of an article in the neo-conservative Weekly Standard. The answer was either “very possibly” (a subhead attached to the piece) or “probably not” (an objective reading would suggest that). Take your pick. Be not afraid. Marriage and family life won’t vanish, given that they correspond to fundamental human interests and needs. But marriage and family are indeed in serious trouble in America. And many–most?–public policy solutions to this crisis are wrongheaded, to say the least. MORE….
The Department of Homeland Security, which under Secretary Janet Napolitano has shown a keen interest in monitoring and warning about outspoken conservatives, takes a very different approach in monitoring political Islamists, according to a 2011 memo on protecting the free speech rights of pro-Shariah Muslim supremacists…. This policy stands in stark contrast to the DHS Office of Intelligence and Analysis’ 2009 memo “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment”, which warned of the dangers posed by pro-life advocates, critics of same-sex marriage and groups concerned with abiding by the U.S. Constitution, among others.

Kermit Gosnell has been convicted. He will spend the rest of his days languishing in prison. Never again will he brutally murder children, or exploit, injure, and kill their mothers. But this story isn’t over. Far from it. We barely had time to feel relief that Gosnell was off the streets, before we learned about another, and possibly even worse, “House of Horrors” – this time in Texas. It won’t come as a surprise that despite horrifying testimony and photographic evidence about how Texas abortionist Douglas Karpen is allegedly delivering living babies, and then killing them in ways that are almost impossible to imagine, the mainstream media has completely ignored this new House of Horrors – just as they ignored Gosnell.
