(Hoping Pete’s okay!)
In other news, Barack Obama has issued an Executive Order banning all gun-shaped states. This brings the total states in the union down to 54.
MY APOLOGIES FOR NOT POSTING TODAY;I HAD AN EYE EXAM LATE THIS MORNING AND HE DILATED MY PUPILS SO IT WAS HARD TO FOCUS.
This photo was found on Facebook from brazil.authorities are looking desparately for the woman holding the gun with this child.THIS GUN IS NOT REAL!
IT IS A 1940 BANG-O MADE BY J. STEVENS CO.IT IS A CAST IRON CAP PISTOL.
But then you’d have to know cap guns the way I do to know that.
Every time I think Obama Democrats have hit bottom, they manage to find a way to dig their hellish slime pit even deeper.
Yesterday, fifteen Democrats staged a pre-planned “walkout” just prior to the parents of Benghazi victims Sean Smith and Tyrone Woods testifying.
The members who walked out: Carolyn Maloney, NY; Danny Davis, IL; Eleanor Holmes Norton, DC; Gerald E. Connolly, VA; Jim Cooper, TN; John Tierney, MA; Mark Pocan, WI; Matt Cartwright, PA; Michelle Lujan Grisham, NM; Peter Welch, VT; Stephen Lynch, MA; Steven Horsford, NV; Tammy Duckworth, IL; Tony Cardenas, CA; William Lacy Clay, MO.
SHAME ON YOU!
After six months in the papacy, Pope Francis gave his first extensive interview. Liberals are wetting themselves over how he supposedly gave the GOP “what for” and the Democrat Party “two thumbs up.”
Sheesh. Only in Liberal Bubble World would the leader of a GLOBAL CHURCH take sides in the partisan politics of a single nation.
Leftists know so little about Christianity in general or about the Catholic Church in particular. For example, they’re crowing about how the Pope is supposedly backing off on abortion, gay marriage and birth control.
What he said was, “We cannot insist only on issues related to abortion, gay marriage and the use of contraceptive methods.”
There’s no change in doctrine here.
What he said was that these issues don’t need to be discussed to the exclusion of all others. He was talking about the church not being too turned in on itself, too obsessed with rules. He said the church needs to be more of a field hospital, where people can feel cared for.
He also said, “I have never been a right-winger.”
I don’t know what “right-wing” means to an Argentinian, but I would hazard a guess it cannot be translated into American partisan politics to mean, “Jesus was a Democrat.”
Pope Francis has affirmed church teaching on abortion and euthanasia.
“We should commit ourselves to ‘eucharistic coherence’, that is, we should be conscious that people cannot receive holy communion and at the same time act or speak against the commandments, in particular when abortion, euthanasia, and other serious crimes against life and family are facilitated. This responsibility applies particularly to legislators, governors, and health professionals.”
“In Argentina, a child conceived by the rape of a mentally ill or retarded woman can be condemned to death.”
“In Argentina there is clandestine euthanasia. Social services pay up to a certain point; if you pass it, ‘die, you are very old’. Today, elderly people are discarded when, in reality, they are the seat of wisdom of the society. The right to life means allowing people to live and not killing, allowing them to grow, to eat, to be educated, to be healed, and to be permitted to die with dignity.”
Pope Francis has affirmed church teaching on homosexuality.
He has said that men and women who have deep-seated homosexual tendencies must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity and that every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided.
But he said their pursuit of equal rights is the devil’s work. He strongly opposed legislation introduced in 2010 by the Argentine Government to allow same-sex marriage, calling it a “real and dire anthropological throwback.” In a letter to the monasteries of Buenos Aires, he wrote:
“Let’s not be naïve, we’re not talking about a simple political battle; it is a destructive pretension against the plan of God. We are not talking about a mere bill, but rather a machination of the Father of Lies that seeks to confuse and deceive the children of God.”
Pope Francis has rejected Socialism:
Pope Francis spent a good deal of time in Argentina fighting against the modernist reforms of the government. Moreover, within the Church the spectre of liberation theologies that conflate Christ’s justice with Marxist principles was (and still is) a constant presence in Latin America.
“To those who are now promising to fix all your problems, I say, ‘Go and fix yourself.’ . . . Have a change of heart. Get to confession, before you need it even more! The current crisis will not be improved by magicians from outside the country and nor will [improvement] come from the golden mouth of our politicians, so accustomed to making incredible promises.”
Good comments from Twitchy:
- Liberal rodents love to show off how little they know about religion and how bad they are at self-awareness.
- The Holy Father is not an ally of the slime that ridiculed God.
- God a Democrat? Lay off the opium, pal.
- People have wondered how Latin American social democratic philosophies would play in the Vatican. It seems its more Libertarian than anything. De-emphasize rules. Emphasize core values. Jesus is our savior. The Church is here to help us know, love and serve God so we can be happy with Him forever.
- Only self-obsessed libs think everything is about them.
Sept 19, 2013: At least 13 people were shot in a Chicago neighborhood. One is a 3-year-old who is reported to be in critical condition.
The child’s uncle, Julian Harris, told the Chicago Sun-Times that dreadlocked men in a gray sedan shot at him Thursday night before turning toward nearby Cornell Square Park and opening fire. He said his nephew was shot in the cheek.
“They hit the light pole next to me, but I ducked down and ran into the house,” Harris said. “They’ve been coming round here looking for people to shoot every night, just gang-banging stuff. It’s what they do.”
Following a surge in homicides and shootings last year, the police department stepped up its patrols.
Through the first six months of the year, the department spent more than $57 million on overtime pay for officers, more than half of it from a program that saturates dangerous neighborhoods with hundreds of officers every night.
Maybe it would be more to the point to rescind all those strict gun control laws they have in Chicago.
The Obama Administration used 13 videos to support their case that Assad’s government had used CWs on Syrian civilians. SecState Kerry put a lot of emphasis on the value of these videos in his August 30, 2013, speech, constantly uses the words “our own eyes” and “seeing.”
Well, a nun named Mother Agnes Mariam used her own eyes and saw a lot of fakery in this so-called evidence. The most glaringly obvious flaw is that the same children show up in scenes that were purported to be of different groups of victims in different neighborhoods. Also, some of the dead children in these scene have been identified by their relatives as among those who had been kidnapped by the Syrian rebels Obama is so hot to support.
One nun puts entire US intel community to shame over ‘stage-managed’ Syria footage
September 11, 2013: Mother Agnes’ report on the videos Obama used to justify bombing Syria
Candidate Obama said often that we could solve all our problems if we just talked to each other. President Obama is being hailed now for his willingness to negotiate with rather than bomb Syria. What a hypocrite! He has consistently refused to even sit down and talk to anyone who disagrees with him, especially if they’re Republicans.
I remember when the HHS mandate came out and the Catholic Bishops raised an uproar. The White House invited them to come and have a sit down about the issue, but afterwards, the Bishops said all that happened was that Obama aides pompously informed them that Obama knew more about Catholic teaching than the Bishops did and anyway shut up and do what you’re told.
The Obama administration has just filed suit in the Supreme Court trying to force Hobby Lobby to obey the HHS mandate, despite the fact that it violates the owners’ right to religious freedom. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/09/19/obama-admin-takes-hobby-lobby-to-supreme-court-to-force-it-to-obey-hhs-mandate/
Students Banned from Passing Out Constitutions on Constitution Day at Modesto Junior College [6:19]
Modesto Junior College in California told a student that he could not pass out copies of the United States Constitution outside the student center on September 17, 2013—Constitution Day.
Captured on video, college police and administrators demanded that Robert Van Tuinen stop passing out Constitution pamphlets and told him that he would only be allowed to pass them out in the college’s tiny free speech zone, and only after scheduling it several days or weeks ahead of time.
The links to the full, unedited videos taken by students are posted below this edited version, which contains the most relevant portions of the experience.
