The pope warns that children of divorced couples can become



The pope denounced the situation that many children find themselves in as a result of their parents being divorced, and he said that even though the Church may understand people that remarry, its still a dangerous situation for children.

He said that the majority of those who feel orphaned are not children without parents but children with a surplus of parents.

The pope made his remarks during a meeting with Brazilian bishops who were in Rome visiting the departments of the Vatican as they do every five years.

Benedict XVI
(original Portuguese)
There are forces and people in society that seem to be dedicated to demolish the family, natural cradle of human life.

To resolve the issue, he asked families to not be fooled by false life models promoted through films and television. He also encouraged all to know forgiveness, help children that suffer, and introduce love and beauty to the life of others.

This is really very funny, after the fact, but I bet I would have had much the same reaction as the man who laid his down and prepared for... oh, if I say much more, it may not have the same effect... lol! Enjoy!

Canon Law Blog Update: I doubt Abp. Burke charged "the Church" with erring

---------- Forwarded message ----------
From: Edward Peters

I doubt Abp. Burke charged "the Church" with erring
While journalists usually have some say over how their writings are edited, even the best reporters tend to have little control over how their articles are headlined…so I want to avoid assuming David Gibson's responsibility for the goofy charge that headlines his report of Abp. Raymond Burke's recent address to guests at's 14th Annual Partnership Dinner.

The title to Gibson's article reads "Vatican Official: Church Erred in Holding Kennedy Funeral." Not only did Burke never say "the Church erred" in this way or any other (seriously, can anyone imagine Burke making such a reckless claim about the Church?), Gibson's own article makes no such allegation.
Read what Abp. Burke really said about the law on funerals for public sinners, and decide whether my position on Teddy's funeral is consistent with the archbishop's, here:

Walid Shoebat: Benjamin Franklin is screaming from his Grave

From Walid Shoebat

---------- Forwarded message ----------

Our president has decided that America is a bad and misguided country who is not entitled to tell any other country what to do unless that country is Jewish. It sees our military, our consumption as a barrier to peace and harmony in the world. He engages enemies of freedom and supports an attempted dictator from Honduras. our president believes that prosecuting the people who are responsible for defending this great naton despite the pleading against such a move by seven previous CIA directors who are both Democrat and Republican.

Benjamin Franklin and all the founding founders that I have studied would not only disagree with President Obama but also probably have him thrown out of the room for insulting their intelligence if he were to make a speech like he did at the United Nothing on 9/23/09.

Benjamin Franklin clearly wrote: "The very fame of our strength and readiness would be a means of discouraging our enemies; for 'tis a wise and true saying, that 'One Sword often keeps another in the scabbard.' The way to secure peace is to be prepared for war. They that are on their guard, and appear ready to recieve their adversaries, are in much less danger of being attacked than the supine, secure and negligent.

Franklin also stated: "Our security lies, I think, in our growing strength, both in numbers and wealth; that creates an increasing ability of assisting this nation in its wars, which will make us more respectable, our friendship more valued, and our enmity feared; thence it will soon be thought proper to treat us not with justice only, but with kindness, and thence we may expect in a few years a total change of measures with regard to us; unless, by neglect of military discipline, we should lose all martial spirit, and our Western people become as tame as those in the Eastern dominions of Britain [India], when we may expect the same oppressions; for there is much truth in the Italian saying, 'Make yourselves sheep, and the wolves will eat you."

Above taken from the writings of Benjamin Franklin and quoted in the book - "The 5000 Year leap - Principles of Freedom 101," a book that every American who believes in the principles of the United States of America should read.

America Wake up! this president is not only a danger to this country but to the welfare and peace of the world.

More on Dominican Republic Passage of Complete Abortion Ban

More on Dominican Republic Passage of Complete Abortion Ban

Good for the Dominican Republic!!

September 24, 2009 (C-FAM) Last week, lawmakers in the Dominican Republic gave their final approval to a pro-life constitutional change despite fierce criticism and pressure from UN agencies and abortion advocates to defeat the measure. The Dominican Republic’s National Assembly easily ratified a revision of Article 30 in a vote of 128 in favor with 32 opposed. The article now states that "the right to life is inviolable from conception until death."

While the measure was widely supported by Dominican parliamentarians, it met with staunch opposition from international abortion proponents and even UN agencies, which are officially neutral on abortion. Last April, when the right-to-life provision was first debated, two UN officials interjected themselves into the debate. Nils Kastberg, UNICEF's regional director for Latin America and the Caribbean, called on Dominican legislators to consider liberalizing abortion so women would not be forced into "unsafe procedures." Kastberg also suggested that lawmakers would be "hypocrites" unconcerned with the nation's higher-than-average teen birth rate.

YouTube -- School kids taught to praise Obama

And so it continues...

In the past, I blogged about another video, and another group of children singing praises to Obama, along with a letter that was written by Lori Kalner, released with the help of Bodie Thoene after I had asked Bodie if she'd seen the video. I also posted a series of Bodie's blog entries about the same time.

I have not yet read all of the comments for this video, and won't, as there are too many of them to spend the time. However, there is one that is interesting, and may be true, to a certain extent. The point is, many times, children are used as a means of indoctrination/propaganda, because of several factors--they are 'cute', they are vulnerable, and they trust their teachers implicitly.

Whether the Hitler Youth, or another... the result is that a generation of children are indoctrinated for the 'regime' in power.... I can honestly say that I have no memory of any 'love songs' or other being taught for any of our previous Presidents of this USA in the past. I also do not recall any videos of this sort for either President Bush, President Clinton, or President Reagan.

This is not cute, IMHO.

Lord, have Mercy!

Comments from the video, not in any particular order:

hydeandgojonathan -- you're right, comparing this to something from Czarist Russia or Hitler's Germany is wrong. The better comparison is to Kim Jong-Il's North Korea. What's scary is that if this were a North Korean teacher, you'd know they were coerced. This teacher has no such excuse.

The (Hitler Youth), the NAZI party's youth movement, indoctrinated German youth to perpetuate the "1,000 year Reich." The Hitler Youth movement emphasized activism, physical training, NAZI ideology, especially nationalism and racial concepts, and absolute obedience to Hitler and the NAZI Party. Indoctrinating children in National Socialist idelogy was a key goal of the NAZI Party. Once Hitler assumed control, he used the Gov't to make the Hitler Youth the country's all encompasing youth movement

The children used to be told to sing to Hitler too, this is scary.

Does anyone know who the head of the teachers union is? His name is Wade Rathke, he the cofounder of the SEIU. He was also co-founder of ACORN. Wade Rathke visits obama at the white house once a week. My point is, your children and getting indoctrinatated by some bad @ss nuts. Think about it, these kids are routinely discouraged from praising God in school, but they are encouraged to praise obama.

Relax, people! There' s nothing wrong! It's not what you think. Please, keep moving to the left now. There, isn't that better? The lobotomist w/b w/u soon. Put your guns in that pile over there, yes, just like that. The ACO-- the nice lady will show you the way down the hall when your number is called. Here's the words to our new pledge of allegiance to Obama. Here's some free money & an armband. Do you have kids? That's nice. They can go play in Obamaland. Okay, prep time. Scalpel! Drill here!

On the one hand, the biggest difference between this kind of indoctrination and the Nazi/North Korean type (example: see yyDso7WOOj0) is that the federal government isn't directly "behind" this teacher's behavior. On the other hand, this American-style indoctrination is arguably even more dangerous, insofar as the Democratic Party has for decades guided the educational curricula in this country through groups such as the NEA. I assume that you all have seen the reports about their behavior.

Notice at one minute into the video, there is a poster on the floor on the left that has a picture of Obama and that says "I am Barack Obama" Why did they choose "I am Barack Obama"? They could have just as easily chosen "I am the Messiah!" Shame on these teachers and this school.

This was not a music teacher, this was a friend of Obama who wrote the book you see to the left "I Am Barak Obama" she was a guest at the school and took the liberty to teach them this song. And my guess is the parents had no clue.

Ok, so I did a little more looking, and found the website for this book that wowoak mentions. The youtube video linked to this website -- "This video has been removed by the user". The Amazon link works. The description of this book by
Charisse Carney-Nunes reads as follows:

Product Description
I Am Barack Obama is not a book about Barack Obama.
Rather, it allows children to see themselves through the inspirational story
of President Obama growing up as an ordinary child asking,
Who will change the world?
Ultimately, he realizes that he will.
I Am Barack Obama is also the
first children's digibook available
interactively along with its companion print edition.

This book apparently uses interaction with the written word of the print edition... sounds like it will effectively 'teach' children via all known teaching skills that will enable each child to 'learn' the lessons regardless of the best way that each can learn, and now, including by song....

Barack Hussein Obama
He said that all must lend a hand [?]
To make this country strong again
Mmm, mmm, mm!

Barack Hussein Obama
He said that we must take a stand
To make sure everyone gets a chance
Mmm, mmm, mm!

Barack Hussein Obama
He said Red, Yellow, Black or White
All are equal in his sight
Mmm, mmm, mm!

Barack Hussein Obama
Mmm, mmm, mm!
Barack Hussein Obama

The name of the school is Bernice Young Elementary School in Burlington, NJ.
This information, and the comment below it are among the many comments at the site of this video. The website for the school is

1203 Neck Road
Burlington, NJ 08016

We all need to call these phone numbers and raise some hell.. This is bull.... People who want communism seem to forget that capitalism is what made America strong and that communism has always failed (see USSR)... Obama is a man not a God...

Bolton: A Post-American Speech By Our First Post-American President - Robert Costa

Bolton: A Post-American Speech By Our First Post-American President - Robert Costa - The Corner on National Review Online

I listened to as much as I could stomach of what this man said to the UN, on what sounds to me like a sell-out of his own nation, and our allies, including Israel.

I think that HE thinks he is such a great orator that everyone will not pay attention to what it is that he is REALLY saying!

Biden on 2010

Biden on 2010: If GOP Succeeds,
It’s ‘The End of the Road for What Barack and I Are Trying to Do’

ABC News’ Karen Travers reports:

Vice President Joe Biden said today that if Democrats were to lose 35 House seats they currently hold in traditionally Republican districts, it would mean doomsday for President Obama’s agenda.

Biden said Republicans are pinning their political strategy on flipping these seats.

“If they take them back, this the end of the road for what Barack and I are trying to do,” the vice president said at a fundraiser for Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) today in Greenville, Delaware.

For the rest of the article, go here.

All I can say is... Biden, from your lips to God's ears....

God bless!

Putting this out for prayer, mostly, but also because I think that the recent changes in policy may (will?) have consequences that only God can prevent.
