14 Pro-lifers Arrested Outside Giuliani's Headquarters

14 Pro-lifers Arrested Outside Giuliani's Headquarters Anti-Abortion Legend, Joan Andrews Bell and Companions Refuse to Pay Fine; Jailed for 5 Days "There should be 1,000 pro-lifers sitting in at Giuliani's offices nationwide; he is like Joseph Stalin when it comes to killing the innocent." -- Joan Andrews-Bell MANCHESTER, New Hampshire, Dec. 21 /Christian Newswire/ -- 14 arrested outside Rudy Giuliani's headquarters in Manchester. Among them were dedicated anti-Abortion leaders, Randall Terry (founder of Operation Rescue), Joan Andrews-Bell (who has served multiple years in prison and is the Author of "You Reject Them, You Reject Me.") and her son Emiliano (whom suffers from "frozen joint disease" and was adopted after being rescued from a dumpster after being born with no legs.) 11 anti-abortion protestors led by Randall Terry were arrested on Tuesday for blocking the entrance to Guiliani's headquarters and charged for criminal tresp

Giuliani's FOX News Attacks Huckabee

So there is a "possible link between the Giuliani campaign and Fox News CEO Roger Ailes." If Hillary were a Republican, FOX would be pushing her on the "pro-life" Hannity show. Fred "In the fall, a story broke regarding a possible link between the Giuliani campaign and Fox News CEO Roger Ailes which was meant to bolster the former New York Mayor's popularity." RFFM.org Commentary Daniel T. Zanoza, National Director Dan@rffm.org December 16, 2007 As Huckabee Soars, Attacks Soar, Too: Especially From FOX News? by Daniel T. Zanoza I haven't decided who I will support among the gaggle of Republicans seeking their party's presidential nomination. Well, there's one candidate who I will never support and that's former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani. However, like many, I have been astounded by the meteoric rise in the polls of former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee. Recent polling indicates Huckabee has a double-digit lead in I

The Iraq Debate: Russell Shaw's Closing Statement

The Iraq Debate: Russell Shaw's Closing Statement by Russell Shaw 12/14/07 Display Full Article/Printer Friendly | Send to a Friend Five quick comments: 1. My thanks to Bob Reilly for making my point: UN weapons inspectors were back in Iraq months before the U.S.-led invasion. That Saddam Hussein wasn't happy is neither surprising nor relevant. 2. Even I, no expert in such matters, can see something slightly, shall we say, fishy about anti-Saddam revelations by a defecting brother-in-law. In any case, this inventory of Saddam's WMD arsenal goes back eight years before the war. I share Reilly's wonderment at the disappearance of such a formidable force -- supposing it ever existed, that is. 3. It's beside the point that President Clinton in 1998 signed a measure declaring it American policy to "support efforts" to overturn Saddam Hussein. Lending unspecified support to others -- in this case, presumably, disaffected Iraqis -- and launching

The Iraq Debate: Robert R. Reilly's Closing Statement

The Iraq Debate: Robert R. Reilly's Closing Statement by Robert R. Reilly 12/14/07 Display Full Article/Printer Friendly | Send to a Friend It simply will not do to demote the importance of enforcing treaties at the end of wars to some kind of adolescent "need to save face." After World War I, the Allies failed to enforce the provision of the Versailles Treaty that forbade German forces from remilitarizing the Rhineland. The cost of that failure was not simply "humiliation," but World War II. To not enforce the 1991 cease-fire agreement with Iraq would have been to abandon the political goals for which the war had been fought. Russell Shaw does not bother to address the potential costs of such a defeat, probably because he thinks Saddam was "a pipsqueak tyrant," who offered no real threat. Hitler was a pipsqueak in 1936, until he faced down the Allies, whose military forces were at that time far superior to the German. In the former Y

EXAMINATION OF CONSCIENCE BEFORE CONFESSION

http://www.unitypublishing.com/Newsletter/Confession.html EXAMINATION OF CONSCIENCE BEFORE CONFESSION 1. Have I ever failed to confess a serious sin, disguised it or justified it? 2. Have I been guilty of irreverence for this sacrament by failing to examine my conscience carefully? 3. Have I failed to perform the penance given me by the confessor or disobeyed any of his directions? 4. Have I neglected the Easter duty of receiving Holy Communion or failed to confess my sins within a year? 5. Have I any HABITS of serious sin to confess first (impurity, drunkenness, gossip, anger, sloth, vanity, neglect of duties, etc.)? FIRST THREE COMMANDMENTS Love God with your whole heart, mind and soul FIRST COMMANDMENT Am I ignorant of my catechism (Act of Contrition, Apostle's Creed, Ten Commandments, Seven Sacraments, the Our Father)? Have I willfully doubted or denied any of the teachings of the Church (heresy)? Have I taken active part in any non-Catholic worship? Am I a memb

Romney is No JFK

Romney vs. JFK BY The Editors December 16-22, 2007 Issue | Posted 12/11/07 at 1:47 PM There are reasons a Catholic might wince when Mitt Romney, a Mormon and the former governor of Massachusetts, gives a speech about religious tolerance. We found plenty. But we also found reasons to applaud. The first reason to wince is the anti-Catholic nature of his religion. Mormons believe that Christ failed in his project to found a church, and that the history of Christendom is the story of “The Great Apostate,” the Catholic Church. More than 1,800 years would pass before the true church was founded: the Church of Latter-Day Saints. The second reason to wince is the political legacy of Mitt Romney. It was on Romney’s watch that the Supreme Court of Massachusetts demanded that the state’s Legislature legalize homosexual “marriage” — among the most damaging usurpations of legislative power by a judicial body in American history. America is a democracy. Here, citizens and their representative
