Quote of the Day, Part 3

Courtesy of Fox News legal analyst Kimberly Guilfoyle:

"No one likes a big satanic crybaby!"

The quote is, fittingly enough, inspired by one of the most ridiculous news items to come along in a while.

Italian Pop Star Sings About Triumph Over Homosexuality

Link to article courtesy of LifeSiteNews.com.

Makes me wish I knew Italian.

Here's a YouTube clip of a live concert performance of the song:

I'm not exactly a fan of songs with a chaotic beat; but given the inner turmoil the song speaks of, maybe it's appropriate in this case.

I don't know the exact translation of the song, so I'm not really able to comment at length on whether the lyrics are fully in agreement with Catholic belief. I am curious, though, about the sign that is posted at the end of the YouTube clip. "Nessuno ha sempre ragione" apparently translates to "No one is always right." Without knowing the full context, I'll withhold comment on it for the time being.

Anyway, I submit this for your perusal. Feel free to discuss. God bless!

Speaker Pelosi Goes To The Vatican

The latest from Fr. Tom Euteneuer, President of Human Life International.

Seriously, what did Pelosi expect? To be named a Cardinal?

Article follows below...

Speaker Pelosi Goes to the Vatican

Dear Spirit & Life Readers,

Surely we were not the only organization to let the Holy See know that one of the most influential anti-life politicians in the world was about to exploit a state visit for personal political gain.

As most of you are certainly aware, earlier this week House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had the audacity to present herself as a "faithful Catholic" on an official state visit to the Vatican.

Monsignor Ignacio Barreiro, Executive Director of HLI's Rome office, was able to compile information on her anti-life voting record and her myriad misrepresentations of her Catholic faith in a letter presented directly to the Vatican Secretary of State.

We were very pleased to see that the Holy Father took the opportunity to remind the Speaker about the truth of Catholic teaching on contraception and abortion, and that her desire for a harmless and high profile visit, complete with the usual photo-ops, was thwarted.

As we again approach the holy season of Lent, please join me in praying and fasting to end abortion, and in praying for the conversion of our political leaders who hold such great sway over the lives of the innocent.

Rev. Thomas J. Euteneuer,
President, Human Life International

Man Harrased By Police For Sporting A Pro-Life, Anti-Obama Bumper Sticker

Link courtesy of Lifenews.com. Is Obama going to have to wave a golden sickle in front of a blood red canvas and express his undying admiration for Joseph Stalin before people start getting the hint?

The sad thing is, Obama fanatics revile this as incendiary hate speech even though the bumper sticker is calling for the political death (as opposed to the actual death) of Barack Obama. Yet the person who participated in the demonically influenced "March for Women's Lives" in April 2004 and distributed computer generated fliers with a picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus surrounded by the words "Saves Lives, Abort Christ" (in an environment where only one definition of the word abortion was tolerated) would be defended by those same fanatics for exercising her constitutional right to free speech.

Evil just doesn't make sense to me, especially when people go against all logic to justify it while frantically suppressing that which is good. God bless!

Update: I'm Still Breathing

Sorry for the lack of posts recently. It feels like I'm being pulled in a number of different directions right now (more so mentally than physically). This can be a problem when it comes to maintaining a blog because I am someone who, when writing, has to devote his undivided attention to the task at hand. That just hasn't been me very often of late. I have not forgotten any of the things I have decided to embark upon. It has just been happening in fits and bursts, is all. It has happened to me before, and this too shall pass; and I'll be back to blogging regularly before you know it. For my part, I promise to try and show more signs of life from now on. God bless!

In Jesus and Mary,
