The emergence of former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee to front runner status is the story of the hour. Catholics are starting to look seriously at this new former Governor from Hope named Huckabee. Many like what they see. LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA (Catholic Online) - The big news in the fast paced presidential race is the emergence of former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee from the back of the pack, even to the lead, in many polls. The 2008 primary campaign has become a real horse race for Republican candidates. The untold story is the apparent fear that such a turn of events is producing in his opponents, both Democrat and Republican. The Democratic Party has put out its talking points, apparently intended to stem the growing Huckabee surge. These points found their way into every pos

British Clergy Say Blair Must Renounce Anti-Life, Anti-Family Views Before Becoming Catholic If only the American Clergy did the same with Giuliani. Fred British Clergy Say Blair Must Renounce Anti-Life, Anti-Family Views Before Becoming Catholic Former PM reveals he was afraid of being seen as "nutter" for stating religious aspirations By Hilary White LONDON, November 29, 2007 ( - In a recent interview, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair revealed that the reason he was reticent about making public his religious aspirations was his fear that politicians with overt religious beliefs are seen as "nutters" in Britain. It is Britain's pervading secularist mentality, not any official disapproval of Catholicism in this officially Protestant country that held him back he said. In contrast to the US, he said, "You talk about it in our system and frankly, people do think you're a nutter." But Rumours that Blair, nominally an adherent

Leftist and Gay Mafia Vanguard Attack Mexico City's Catholic Cathedral

Catholic Church closes cathedral indefinitely after protesters storm building during Mass International Herald Tribune Mexico City's cathedral was closed Monday after leftist protesters stormed into the world-renowned religious landmark, and church officials said it would not reopen until city authorities can guarantee security. Dozens of supporters of former leftist presidential candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador entered the building bordering the capital's Zocalo square on Sunday, scuffling with faithful and overturning pews. The conflict reignited tensions between the church and some members of Mexico's leftist Democratic Revolution Party who accuse Cardinal Norberto Rivera of overstepping Mexican law by intervening in politics, including supporting President Felipe Calderon's election campaign last year. Archdiocese of Mexico spokesman Hugo Valdemar Romero said there have been 2

The Secular Teacher Sex Abuse Scandal

Only the secular teachers in the Godless schools can sex abuse children and get away with it. Is the gay mafia which controls the media trying to tell us something? Fred Teachers Vs. Priests Unequal Treatment In the Media? BY WAYNE LAUGESEN REGISTER CORRESPONDENT December 2-8, 2007 Issue | Posted 11/27/07 at 3:03 PM NEW YORK — When the Associated Press set out to investigate an apparent problem with sexual assault of children in public schools, the organization spared no expense. A congressionally mandated study by Hofstra University had already found school-based sexual abuse to be a big problem. “It was one of our priorities for the year,” said John Affleck, editor of the AP’s national reporting team. The result was a three-part series, available to editors throughout the country beginning Oct. 20, that revealed widespread and routine sexual assault of public school students throughout the country. The first story summarized: “Students in America’s schools are groped. They’re raped.

What Can We Hope In?

What Not to Hope In BY The Editors December 9-15, 2007 Issue | Posted 12/4/07 at 1:48 PM Pope Benedict XVI’s new encyclical is Spe Salvi (On Christian Hope). It has a lot to say about what hope is, what the highest hope is, and how we can grow in the virtue of hope. But it also includes, along the way, a list of things that we should not put our hopes in. Listing what we shouldn’t hope in is a helpful exercise, especially for Americans. Our standard of living can easily lead to a false hope in this world. Technology has made our lives more comfortable than kings and queens in ages past. We can travel great distances quickly. We can buy tomatoes, oranges, apples and avocados from around the world year-round in our corner store. We can get in touch with almost anyone almost anywhere at almost any time — and we can fill our every waking moment with sophisticated entertainments. Pope Benedict’s prophetic message is that much of what we hope in will fail us. Don’t hope in progress, says the

Atheist Hitchens "Suggests that the Atheist Soviet Tyranny was itself a form of Religion"

Atheist Hitchens "Suggests that the Atheist Soviet Tyranny was itself a form of Religion" Hitchens vs Hitchens By PETER HITCHENS Am I my brother’s reviewer? A word of explanation is needed here. Some of you may know that I have a brother, Christopher, who disagrees with me about almost everything... But now, in God Is Not Great, he has written about religion itself, attacking it as a stupid delusion... He even suggests that the atheist Soviet tyranny was itself a form of religion. You can’t win against this sort of circular absolutism... Christopher is an atheist. I am a believer. He once said in public: "The real difference between Peter and myself is the belief in the supernatural. "I’m a materialist and he attributes his presence here to a divine plan. I can’t stand anyone who believes in God, who invokes the divinity or who is a person of faith." I don’t feel the same way. I like atheists and enjoy their company, because they agree with me that religion is

Europe Is Dying, America Will Go It Alone

The principal Saudi export is Islamic jihad ideology and our oil money bankrolls its spread. We promote democracies throughout the world, and that is good but it often fails because without a good constitution that guarantees individual rights and the common good, democracy can be just an immoral or religious majority rule. I would rather have a king like in Jordan with freedom of religion and human rights, than a Theocratic Democracy. Europe Is Dying Richard Salbato 12-05-2007 I just returned from a week in Florence and Rome. Trying to keep up with my daughter and grandchildren was a chore for this old man but it was great to take them to the tomb of Peter and teach them the history of the tomb and the Basilica. The reason for the trip was to register my granddaughter into an art school in Florence and to show them the great art of Europe. In this we probably saw all the originals of Michelangelo, who she wants to be like: the pieta and dome at St. Peter’s, the Sistine Chapel, and

The Giuliani/Clinton Democrat Agenda Homosexodus! Students flee forced 'gay' agenda California parents start reacting to new 'education' requirements December 4, 2007 By Bob Unruh Parents in California have started reacting to the state's newly mandated homosexual indoctrination program by pulling their children out of classes, and state Superintendent of Public Instruction Jack O'Connell is warning districts they'll lose money if that happens. A spokeswoman for a ministry called Considering Homeschooling said she already has seen an overwhelming increase in requests for information about homeschooling. As a result, spokeswoman Denise Kanter told WND that her group is sending out 5,000 DVD packages to churches around the state that include basic "how-to" information to provide parents a direction to turn when they choose to protect their children from the new school agenda. The new law demands, "No teacher shall give

Golden Compass Author said "I’m trying to Undermine the basis of Christian Belief"

‘Mr. Lewis [C.S. Lewis, author of The Chronicles of Narnia] would think I was doing the devil’s work’" Parents can’t always keep up with popular culture—and when a movie is promoted as a fun adventure, featuring children riding enchanted polar bears, all in time for the Christmas season, what’s not to like? Unfortunately, the film’s makers have an agenda. The film is based on the works of author Phil Pullman, who has written a series of entertaining stories called "His Dark Materials." In his own words: "‘I’m trying to undermine the basis of Christian belief,’ says Pullman. ‘Mr. Lewis [C.S. Lewis, author of The Chronicles of Narnia] would think I was doing the devil’s work’" (from the Washington Post, Feb. 19, 2001). And, "I’ve been surprised by how little criticism I’ve got. Harry Potter’s been taking all the flak…. Meanwhile, I’ve been flying under the radar, saying things that are far more subversive than anything poor old Harry has said. My books are a
