Oppression building -- Persecution Coming?

Via Jeff Miller (the Curt Jester) on his Facebook:

Jeff Miller 9th "Circus" Court upholds anti-Catholicism. Know-Nothings in Robes.

Jeff Miller Great to know a city can call my faith "hateful," "insulting and callous," "ignorant" and the court say OK. The words describe them.

The Court decisions are getting more and more blatant, the 'enemy' being defined more and more clearly with each one.
  • "It cannot happen here", right? The same type of persecution that many world-wide have already experienced over the centuries?
  • "It cannot happen here", right? The same martyrdom that many have experienced over the centuries (especially in the last century) for their Faith?
  • "It will never happen here", right? Those are the same thoughts that many in Germany hsd as Hitler came to power and began to legalize anti-Semitism, and began to incarcerate Jews, Catholics and Christians of other denominations.
  • "It will never happen here" -- abortion on demand for any reason, divorce on demand of one for any reason (from Communist Russia), assisted suicide (Oregon and elsewhere), euthanasia by court order (Terri Schiavo and others), futile care in TX, and soon, euthanasia on demand by decision of others, as in 'too expensive to treat,  too old to treat', 'brought on by their own bad choices, ie obesity, smokers, alcoholic/drug addict, etc etc etc' ...
It can happen here, it IS happening here, and if we do NOT WAKE UP, it will only get worse! (And there will be no 'Rapture' to protect the US Christians from what centuries of martyrs have had to endure for Him!!)

It is also time to begin to LOOK UP! Maranatha!

God help us,
Lord, have Mercy!

Obama Quietly Issues Statement on Murder and Attempted Murder of 2 Soldiers in Arkansas--finally

HT to the Curt Jester, Jeff Miller:

Finally Obama reacts to shooting of 2 soldiers by Islamists. Though the comparison in statements is striking.

Obama Quietly Issues Statement on Terrorist Attack in Arkansas

After two days of silence, President Obama issued a statement Wednesday on the shooting of two U.S. soldiers by a Muslim militant in Arkansas--but the White House didn't even email the statement to its list of national reporters. Rather, the White House appears to have quietly released this statement to a local AP bureau in Arkansas (via Michelle Malkin):

"I am deeply saddened by this senseless act of violence against two brave young soldiers who were doing their part to strengthen our armed forces and keep our country safe. I would like to wish Quinton Ezeagwula a speedy recovery, and to offer my condolences and prayers to William Long's family as they mourn the loss of their son." (emphasis mine)

In contrast, the White House blasted a statement to reporters via email about five hours after news broke that third-trimester abortionist George Tiller was murdered on Sunday:

I am shocked and outraged by the murder of Dr. George Tiller as he attended church services this morning. However profound our differences as Americans over difficult issues such as abortion, they cannot be resolved by heinous acts of violence.(emphasis mine)

The contrast between Obama's statements is striking: He's "deeply saddened" by the murder of a U.S. soldier, but "shocked and outraged" by the murder of an abortionist? The murder of a U.S. soldier is a "senseless" act of violence but the murder of an abortionist is a "heinous" act of violence?

Reiki Therapy Unscientific, 'Inappropriate for Catholic Institutions,' Say Bishops' Guidelines

There are many of us that already knew this, simply by knowing our Faith, and knowing what Reiki (etc) is. But I am glad that this press release has been issued, regardless!!

God bless!

USCCB News Release

Reiki lacks scientific credibility
Catholics trusting Reiki operate in superstitious no man's land

Reiki Therapy Unscientific, 'Inappropriate for Catholic Institutions,' Say Bishops' Guidelines

WASHINGTON—The U.S. bishops have issued guidelines that call Reiki therapy, an alternative medicine originating in Japan, unscientific and inappropriate for Catholic institutions.

They outlined the position in "Guidelines for Evaluating Reiki as an Alternative Therapy." The guidelines were developed by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops' (USCCB) Committee on Doctrine, chaired by Bishop William Lori of Bridgeport, Connecticut. They were approved by the USCCB Administrative Committee, March 24, during its spring meeting in Washington. The Administrative Committee is the authoritative body of the USCCB to approve committee statements.

The document can be found at

The Guidelines describe Reiki as a healing technique "invented in Japan in the late 1800s by Mikao Usui, who was studying Buddhist texts." The guidelines state that "according to Reiki teaching, illness is caused by some kind of disruption or imbalance in one's 'life energy.' A Reiki practitioner effects healing by placing his or her hands in certain positions on the patient's body in order to facilitate the flow of Reiki, the 'universal life energy,' from the Reiki practitioner to the patient."

The Guidelines state that "Reiki lacks scientific credibility" and "has not been accepted by the scientific and medical communities as an effective therapy."

"Reputable scientific studies attesting to the efficacy of Reiki are lacking, as is a plausible scientific explanation as to how it could possibly be efficacious," they state.

The Guidelines note that "Reiki is frequently described as a 'spiritual' kind of healing as opposed to the common medical procedures of healing using physical means." They assert, however, that there is a radical difference between Reiki therapy and the healing by divine power in which Christians believe: "for Christians the access to divine healing is by prayer to Christ as Lord and Savior, while the essence of Reiki is not a prayer but a technique that is passed down from the 'Reiki Master' to the pupil, a technique that once mastered will reliably produce the anticipated results."

In sum, Reiki therapy "finds no support either in the findings of natural science or in Christian belief," the Guidelines state.

"For a Catholic to believe in Reiki therapy presents insoluble problems," the Guidelines state. "In terms of caring for one's physical health or the physical health of others, to employ a technique that has no scientific support (or even plausibility) is generally not prudent."

The guidelines warn that in using Reiki for one's spiritual health, "there are important dangers."

"To use Reiki one would have to accept at least in an implicit way central elements of the worldview that undergirds Reiki theory, elements that belong neither to Christian faith nor to natural science. Without justification either from Christian faith or natural science, however, a Catholic who puts his or her trust in Reiki would be operating in the realm of superstition, the no-man's-land that is neither faith nor science," they state.

"Superstition corrupts one's worship of God by turning one's religious feeling and practice in a false direction," the Guidelines state. "While sometimes people fall into superstition through ignorance, it is the responsibility of all who teach in the name of the Church to eliminate such ignorance as much as possible."

"Since Reiki therapy is not compatible with either Christian teaching or scientific evidence, it would be inappropriate for Catholic institutions, such as Catholic health care facilities and retreat centers, or persons representing the Church, such as Catholic chaplains, to promote or to provide support for Reiki therapy," the Guidelines said.

Catholic Prof and Evangelical Leader Place Blame for Tiller Murder


WI Catholic has recommended the following news to you from

Catholic Prof and Evangelical Leader Blame Catholic Church, Republicans, "Religious Leaders" for Tiller's Murder

Your friend said:

It is, of course, the fault of the Catholic Church, Republicans, and "Religious Leaders"...

By Kathleen Gilbert

WICHITA, Kansas, June 2, 2009 ( - Two American religious leaders have accused U.S. Catholic bishops of sharing the blame for the murder of Kansas late-term abortionist George Tiller because of their advocacy for legal protection for the unborn.

Tiller was shot and killed Sunday morning at a Wichita Lutheran Church where he was serving as an usher. The suspected murderer, Scott Roeder, was apprehended shortly following the incident. Reports have surfaced that Roeder suffers from mental instability linked to a schizophrenia diagnosis, and is believed to have acted alone in the murder.
