Oh, yeah... there is no danger for Christians or for Jews when the majority is suddenly Muslim. It will never happen here... right.... if people wake up on time.
Peaceful Muslims will also be in danger when told to begin practicing their Faith the way that Islamic fundamentalists interpret their religion, for they will be told to begin to follow... or be treated as infidels/apostates. Ever read how they are instructed to treat infidels/apostates??
Make sure you read the highlighted section below.... and God have mercy on us all!
God bless!

Gaza Christians under Islamic threat

Jerusalem, August 17 (CNA).-The Christian minority in Gaza are under increasing pressure by Hamas to become Muslims, submit to Islamic law or leave the Gaza Strip , says a report by the Cybercast News Service.

Hamas, an Islamic terrorist group that won last year's Palestinian parliamentary elections, completed a military takeover of the Gaza Strip in June, handily defeating Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah movement. Following the takeover, Hamas announced that an era of strict Islamic rule had begun in Gaza.

According to a report in Middle East Newsline last week, Hamas is moving fast against non-Muslims in the area. Fatah officials who spoke to the news service on condition of anonymity said Hamas is pressing leaders of the 2,000-member Christian community to either convert to Islam or emigrate.

The Jerusalem Post earlier reported that Prof. Sana al-Sayegh, dean of the science and technology faculty at Palestine University and a Christian, had been abducted by several of her Muslim colleagues and forced to convert and marry a Muslim man.

Weeks after her disappearance in late June, al-Sayegh's family was invited to a meeting with several aides of Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh. Surrounded by Hamas gunmen, a distraught and crying al-Sayegh informed her family that she had become a Muslim.

Hamas maintains that al-Sayegh's conversion was a matter of personal choice and that it is vigorously protecting the rights of Gaza's Christians, but Dr. Walid Phares, a leading Middle East expert and senior fellow at the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, told Cybercast News Service that the exact opposite is true.

"Hamas states that it 'protects' minorities with the same energy as the Taliban and the Islamist regime in Sudan," said Phares. However, "the reality is that the Jihadist agenda of Hamas includes gradual but strict implementation of shari'a law."

Phares said that as a result of this increasing Islamic pressure, Gaza's Christian community is considering fleeing the area en masse. Many have already left.

In related news, about 300 Palestinians on Monday violated a Hamas ban on public demonstrations and gathered in a central Gaza City square chanting, "We want freedom." Many others were prevented from ever reaching the location.

Heavily armed Hamas militiamen quickly broke up the protest, wounding a large number of people with clubs and rifle butts, and arresting others.

Later in the day, Hamas forces raided the local offices of international and Palestinian news agencies and confiscated all coverage of the demonstration.

Rally against divorce planned for this weekend in DC

I really would like to be in DC this weekend, but cannot make it. I will be praying for those in attendance, however, and I WILL be praying that the BISHOPS hear this message!
Not only the Bishops, though, as I will also be praying that our Federal Gov't, State Representatives (Senate and House), Judges, Lawyers, and others hear the message as well!
God bless!!

Washington DC, August 17 (CNA).-Thousands of people from across the United States are expected to converge on Washington DC Aug. 18 to rally for family rights. Activists at the rally are trying to raise support for children who have been the victims of no-fault divorce which can cause them to lose of one of their parents.

Many of the participants will be non-custodial parents, whose children were forcibly taken from them through no-fault divorce, says rally speaker Michael Ross. Ross is president of the Family Rights Coalition of Michigan and is a member of the Knights of Columbus.

Michael McManus, president of Marriage Savers and an ethics and religion columnist, will address the rally on Sunday. McManus says tNhat with the availability of unilateral no-fault divorce, dedicated and innocent spouses lost their negotiating power that had enabled them to keep custody of children and control the support due from an abandoner.

McManus points out that the Catholic bishops could lead all clergy, both Protestant and Catholic, in the fight for needed reforms regarding the family and no-fault divorce.

Anonymous poster misses the point... Kennedy First Marriage is VALID

An anonymous poster (and I do not 'buy' anonymous least use an ID if you are going to post comments, and give your opinion SOME weight!) wrote:
Anonymous has left a new comment on your post " The Kennedy annulments":

An important correction to your article on the Kennedy annulment: it was Sheila Rauch Kennedy that divorced Joe Kennedy, not the other way around. The marriage had irretrievably broken down, so he agreed to the divorce.
My response:
First, if you are going to dispute something, dispute the source. The 'facts' came from an article carried by after an article broke the story in Time magazine.  
Second, one does not have any CHOICE when papers are served on one in no fault divorce. There is no stopping it once it begins except reconciliation...or the Plaintiff dropping the case for another reason.
Third, it has been a very long time since they were in the news, so if there was adultery, etc, he again may not have had much choice in the matter... OR, he may have wanted one but agreed to let HER serve the papers. It REALLY makes no difference! The point of the story is... he is still married to Sheila Rauch Kennedy, whether he likes it or not.
He is in a situation with a VALID first marriage, and his second one is not valid. What does Jesus say about a marriage to another after divorce? Read His words in four places in the NT.
Matt 5:31-32
31"It has been said, 'Anyone who divorces his wife must give her a certificate of divorce. 32 But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, causes her to become an adulteress, and anyone who marries the divorced woman commits adultery.
Matt 19:3-8
3Some Pharisees came to him to test him. They asked, "Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any and every reason?"  4 "Haven't you read," he replied, "that at the beginning the Creator 'made them male and female, 5 and said, 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh? 6So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate."  7"Why then," they asked, "did Moses command that a man give his wife a certificate of divorce and send her away?"   8 Jesus replied, "Moses permitted you to divorce your wives because your hearts were hard. But it was not this way from the beginning. 9 I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, and marries another woman commits adultery."
Mark 10:2-10 2Some Pharisees came and tested him by asking, "Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?"  3 "What did Moses command you?" he replied.  4They said, "Moses permitted a man to write a certificate of divorce and send her away."   5"It was because your hearts were hard that Moses wrote you this law," Jesus replied. 6"But at the beginning of creation God 'made them male and female. 7'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife 8and the two will become one flesh.So they are no longer two, but one. 9 Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate."  10When they were in the house again, the disciples asked Jesus about this. 11 He answered, "Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her. 12 And if she divorces her husband and marries another man, she commits adultery."
Luke 16:18
18"Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery, and the man who marries a divorced woman commits adultery.

My God is NOT Allah... or the God of the JW's, the LDS, etc etc etc

Tonight, an email was sent to me by a friend who asked if I was ready to get angry...and she said that her hubby hates to watch the news when she is around because she talks back to the speakers... so do I....
She sent me THIS news story, which I had JUST read on CNA News a few minutes before. This is a CATHOLIC BISHOP! And he thinks that there is no difference???
Since I read the first story here, and then my friend's reference here, I got another email from Fox with the same story here..... and an email poll here...
From the CNA News story:
Bishop Martinus Muskens of Breda, Netherlands,
suggested in an interview with Radio Netherlands
that Christians should refer to God as Allah,
which would promote better relations with Muslims. 

The 71-year-old bishop told the program that he believes God doesn't mind what he is called. He believes people are needlessly divided over the different names used to refer to God.
Bishop Muskens admitted that he did not think
his suggestion would be welcomed readily
and that it would take about 100 years before
Catholics would feel comfortable calling God "Allah".
My response to my friend? Below, just slightly edited for my blog....
I, too, talk back to the news/TV, ESP when Hilary, Pelosi, Thurmer, et all end up saying some VERY aggravating things.... My kids have always just said... "Mom.. they cannot hear you!!" and let me talk.... lol.
I also just read THIS on CNA Newsletter, and have been debating what I wanted to really say about it on my blog... and this guy thinks it is ok to pray to a 'false god'... just like a mormon friend thinks I am thrilled to hear that SHE is praying to 'Heavenly Father' or their version of our saviour.... When she does, I begin to pray  and ask the Lord to take authority over whomever it is that she is talking to, and keep me safe...or my kids, etc....
I used to think it was ok, and just glad she prayed for us, til one day, I realized that Joseph Smith was NOT speaking to God the Father, Son or Holy Spirit when he had his "visions' of the angel moroni.... That really made me realize just who that angel was, or at least where that angel came from... same with the source of Mohammed.
Sorry... I don't need help from the Pit... I need Help to keep me FROM the Pit.
"Greater is He who is within me than he that is in the world.... "
100 yrs before Catholics feel comfortable calling God "Allah"?? I think it should be a cold day in Hell before that happens! Does God care what we call Him? Yes, I think He DOES! He has told us who He is...and He has told us He is a jealous God!! He wants us to know HIM, not a facsimile! Not to be confused with a False god, an idol!!
I will NOT, and I mean NEVER(!) call God Allah. ....OR "Heavenly Father', for that matter!
Truly, the ONLY ones happy about this suggestion would be.... Islamofascists who want to convert the entire world to Allah, by force, if necessary! "Convert or die!"... remember History.....or be doomed to repeat it.
God bless!!

Ethical physicians must prepare for future challenges

Unfortunately, I think we are only seeing the TIP OF THE ICEBERG with the recent cases involving pharmacists, and now MD's. I think that anyone in the medical profession, including nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, ..... everyone who is a caregiver...will in the not to distant future, face many Ethical situations. It may easily ALSO cost them (us) careers, licenses...futures.
And Catholics (Christians) will have the hardest row to hoe as more and more unethical, even immoral situations arise...if they are living the Faith as are these MD's.
God have mercy!

Ethical physicians must prepare for future challenges

San Diego, August 14 (CNA).-A San Diego physician says medical professionals who refuse to provide particular treatments or procedures for reasons of religion or conscience should brace themselves for major challenges ahead.

Dr. George Delgado, medical director at Culture of Life Family Services, a non-profit medical clinic that operates from a Catholic perspective, told the California Catholic Daily that operating from one's religious perspective will become increasingly difficult for physicians.

Delgado was commenting on the case against Drs. Christine Brody and Douglas Fenton, who are being sued by a former patient who is angry that Brody would not artificially inseminate her because she is a lesbian .

Brody and Fenton are OB-Gyns at North Coast Women's Care in Vista, California. Their case has yet to go before the state Supreme Court. In 2003, however, the Fourth District State Appeals Court ruled against the physicians .

Most doctors would have no problem doing what Brody and Fenton refused to do, said Delgado. "A lot of doctors feel that they are at the beck-and-call of the patient and operate in an amoral vacuum," he said.

But there are physicians who have strong personal ethical frameworks, said Delgado, and these physicians are starting to run into some challenges.

"I've had some difficulties already and it is only going to get worse as technology advances without much in the way of moral guidelines or ethical signposts," he told the California Catholic Daily. "Other healthcare providers, particularly pharmacists, are having the hardest time of it right now. It's going to become a bigger and bigger problem."

Delgado believes the Brody/Fenton case could have serious repercussions.

"This is clearly a case where a physician has responded to a request that many people would find unreasonable and unethical. These are physicians with well-formed religious, ethical and moral beliefs that may not be followed by most Americans, but most Americans would find them reasonable," he said.

Delgado has not performed an abortion during his 16 years as a physician, but admits to once prescribing contraceptives. He resolved to stop prescribing them after reading the Church document Humanae Vitae.

50 Seminarians in training in Archdiocese of Atlanta!!

WOW! The emphasis is mine....
God bless!

Archdiocese of Atlanta has vocations boom

Atlanta, August 14 (CNA).-There may be a decline of priests and church attendance across the nation, but the Archdiocese of Atlanta is bucking both trends, with packed churches and more than 50 seminarians in training.

The number of Catholics in the Archdiocese of Atlanta has more than doubled in the last 10 years, growing from 256,000 to an estimated 600,000. St. Thomas the Apostle church in Smyrna, for example, holds nine masses each weekend, five in English and four in Spanish.

The archdiocese's 95 churches and missions are currently served by 262 priests. This clergy-to-church ratio of nearly three to one is significant given that some U.S. churches have no pastors.

Fr. Luke Ballman, the archdiocese's director of vocations, attributes the high number of clergy and seminarians to a strong vocations program.

"We have one of the strongest vocational programs in the country," he told the Atlanta Journal Constitution. He added that the influx of Catholics to the region has also helped bring many young men who are interested in becoming priests.

The archdiocese also has the support of the Serra Club, which helps support priestly vocations through scholarships and prayer. About 600 Serrans were in Atlanta over the weekend for a national conference.

TerriPAC Web Site Offline, Terri Schiavo's Ex-Husband Pays FEC Fine

TerriPAC Web Site Offline, Terri Schiavo's Ex-Husband Pays FEC Fine
by Steven Ertelt Editor
August 13,
St. Petersburg, FL ( -- TerriPAC, the political action committee created by Terri Schiavo's former husband, has paid a $1350 fine to the Federal Election Commission in Washington. The fine was assessed after the group failed to file complete and timely reports. Now the political group's web site has been taken offline.

After ordering her painful two-week-long starvation and dehydration death in March 2005, Michael Schiavo created the PAC to target pro-life lawmakers who tried to stop him from killing her.

Michael created TerriPAC with his brother Brian Schiavo and, since its creation, it has frequently run afoul of the federal agency by failing to file its campaign finance reports on time or include all of the necessary information.

In July, the FEC assessed TerriPAC a $1,350 civil money penalty. According to records from the FEC obtained by, the elections monitoring agency said, "this civil money penalty has been paid."

TerriPAC filed a July quarterly report saying it has $35,353.75 on hand and that it took in $2150.01 over the last quarter.

The report shows TerriPAC sent Newburgh, Indiana-based Indigo Design checks in April and May totaling about $425 for web site design work.

However, a reader alerted the pro-life news service over the weekend that the TerriPAC web site is no longer online. Instead, the web site points to a leading web domain registration company. The company's page for TerriPAC says the web site is offline pending deletion or transfer.

Information from Network Solutions finds that the web site's registration expired on August 7 and it lists Derek Newton as the administrative contact for the web site. Newton is affiliated with a Florida Democratic political consulting company called the November Group that TerriPAC has sent thousands of dollars to for organizational support.

Attempts to reach Newton were unsuccessful.

While Schiavo has engaged in politics, Terri's parents and family have worked full-time for their foundation which seeks to help disabled patients and their families obtain appropriate health care and treatment.
