Near Death, Seeing Dead People May Be Neither Rare Nor Eerie

“I said ‘Dad, what are you laughing at?’ He said, ‘Oh, we’re all together.’ “

The bewildered Roncevich and her mother wondered who and what he was seeing. He was even giggling.

“He said, ‘Everybody’s together and we’re all just having a wonderful time. We’re having so much fun’ … and those were the last words he spoke,” she recounted last week between her visits to patients of UPMC Family Hospice and Palliative Care. “I said to my mom, ‘What more could we ask for than that?’ Wherever he was going, he was in a good place and happy.”

Book Reveals Homosexualization of Catholic Church

The term “gay rights” is an example of controlling thought through language. The phrase refers to formal approval of homosexual practices as well as special privileges for gays, who supposedly have a “right” to hiring priority, immunity from criticism, and all the other bennies that come of being “oppressed.”

Reparations: The Holy Grail Of Identity Politics (Part II) – Bookworm Room

Part 2 is a short history of slavery.

It requires incredible historic ignorance to condemn our Founding Fathers for owning slaves in the 18th century.  To the contrary, while by today’s standards we see their ownership of slaves as an atrocity, those are today’s standards and not applicable to other historical periods — unless you are a neomarxist proggie who wants to claim faux victimhood status.  The truth is that it was the colonists alive at our Founding who, for the first time in all of human history, began to battle successfully against the institution of slavery as immoral and incompatible with the Jewish and Christian religions.

“Incredible historic ignorance” is exactly what the Democrat Party and the National Education Association are all about. They’ve been incredibly successful at it too.

Cory Booker: Planet Cannot Sustain People Eating Meat – Moonbattery

Booker told the vegan magazine VegNews earlier this month that he became vegan after coming to the realization that eating eggs “didn’t align with my spirit.”

So it’s a religious thing with ‘Fartacus‘…

While claiming he does not want to lecture Americans on their diets, Booker says Americans need to be nudged into fake cheese because the planet cannot sustain the “environmental impact” of the food industry.

Nudged? Now he wants to impose his religion on others.

Bishop Foys says he was “bullied.”

“We should not have allowed ourselves to be bullied and pressured into making a statement prematurely, and we take full responsibility for it,” Foys wrote in the letter cited by news outlets. “I especially apologize to Nicholas Sandmann and his family, as well as to all CovCath families who have felt abandoned during this ordeal.”  Newsweek

This is embarrassing. A grown man never learned how to deal with bullies. How do you get to be his age without learning to deal with them? Was he from the privileged elite? Went to an elite private school? This bishop (small ‘b’ because he does not deserve the title) thinks he was bullied? Maybe if he knew anything about his faith… maybe if he’d ever read the New Testament… he would know real bullying — the kind experienced by Jesus Christ while on earth. THAT is bullying. And Jesus stood up to it.

This was your flock, bishop Foys! The flock you were supposed to lead and protect. You failed miserably. Because you were ‘bullied’. Please give examples of the bullying you suffered. You are obviously not shepherd material. That’s what a bishop is supposed to be, a shepherd. You are just a paid sheep-herder who flees at the slightest hint of opposition.

Hey bishop Foys, how about you try to follow the example of your Lord and Savior? You are a pathetic excuse for a Catholic, a bishop, a man, and a human being.

The False Teachings of the National Council of Churches

3. “Tax and budget policies that reduce disparities between rich and poor, strengthen democracy, and provide greater opportunity for everyone within the common good.”  Is this what Jesus taught?  Did He complain that the people under Roman rule needed a fairer tax code?

These are not churches so much as leftist political agitators.

The Coadjuvancy of Church and State

The modern notion that the separation of these powers implies opposition or incompatibility is a gross misrepresentation of the founders beliefs and intentions, imposed on the nation by a cabal of hyper-partisan Democrat secularists led by Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black (a virulent anti-Catholic and one-time member of the Ku Klux Klan), along with his co-conspirator Lyndon Baines Johnson, author of the “Johnson Amendment” that purported to ban church involvement in politics.

Black wrote the majority opinion in the 1947 US Supreme Court case Everson v Board of Education which redefined the separation of church and state as a barrier to church/state cooperation – reversing over 150 years of legal precedent in which it had been recognized as a facilitator of church influence in government. It was this early and egregious example of judicial activism in Everson that shifted America from following the Judeo-Christian presuppositions of the founders to the Secular Humanist presuppositions of Cultural Marxism: preventing government from recognizing the authority of God in our law and history.
