From: Bai Macfarlane

Would you  mind doing me a favor and distribute this message on your blog?

From: Bai Macfarlane

Can anyone help me obtain a copy of first printing of the second edition of Bud Macfarlane's book "Pierce by the Sword."
This edition has the purple cover, and forward signed by O'Brien, 12 December 1996.

Having a copy of this book will assist in uphold my marriage.

While there are copies for sale on the internet, I can't tell if they are the from the 1996 print run.

If anyone has copy or knows from where I can obtain one, please contact me.

"Pray daily for the Roman Rota and for all who work in the sector of the administration of justice in the Church, with recourse to the motherly intercession of Mary Most Holy, Speculum iustitiae."
Pope Benedict XVI's Address Jan. 26 2008

"Divorce tears marriage apart. It desolates both husband and wife. It leaves the children not only in tears but also in misery. We do not deny that there can be serious disagreement between husband and wife, but divorce is not the solution. When husband and wife have a disagreement, they should reflect, pray, sit together and discuss. Accept fault where you are wrong, ask for pardon, or consult a priest or other spiritual adviser, but do not divorce."

California's Proposition 71 Failure - California's Proposition 71 Failure

Two quotes from the article that are important to note:

Five years later, ESCR has failed to deliver and backers of Prop 71 are
admitting failure. The California Institute for Regenerative Medicine, the state
agency created to, as some have put it, restore science to its rightful place,
is diverting funds from ESCR to research that has produced actual therapies and
treatments: adult stem cell research. It not only has treated real people with
real results; it also does not come with the moral baggage ESCR does.

us, this is a classic bait-and-switch, an attempt to snatch success from the
jaws of failure and take credit for discoveries and advances achieved by
research Prop. 71 supporters once cavalierly dismissed. We have noted how over
the years that when funding was needed, the phrase "embryonic stem cells" was
used. When actual progress was discussed, the word "embryonic" was dropped
because ESCR never got out of the lab.

And this one:

Dr. Bernadine Healy, director of the National Institutes of Health under
Bush 41, wrote in her U.S. News & World Report column recently that
"embryonic stem cells, once thought to hold the cure for Alzheimer's,
Parkinson's and diabetes, are obsolete."

Even worse, they can be
dangerous. They are difficult to control, to coax into the specific type of
tissue desired. Unlike adult stem cells taken from a patient's own body, ES
cells require the heavy use of immunosuppressive drugs. Their use can lead to a
form of tumor called a teratoma.

Real promise is held in what are called
induced pluripotent stem cells. In 2006, researchers led by Dr. Shinya Yamanaka
of Japan's Kyoto University were first able to "reprogram" human skin cells to
behave like embryonic stem cells. They can do everything stem cells from
destroyed embryos can do.

The National Institutes of Health has said
that this type of stem cell offers the prospect of having a renewable source of
replacement cells and tissues to treat diseases like Parkinson's and
Alzhei-mer's, spinal cord injury, stroke, burns, heart disease, diabetes,
osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, to name a few.

EMBRYONIC Stem Cell Research has done NOTHING but experiment on human beings, and needs to cease!!

God bless!

Martha Coakley: Devout Catholics "Probably Shouldn't Work in the Emergency Room"

WHAT?????? Say this again???

Catholics and pro-lifers should not work in the ER's????

This woman is dangerous, IMHO....

From the blurb on the youtube site:
Martha Coakley was on with Ken Pittman from WBSM in Massachusetts on Thursday. She told Ken that if you object to abortion then "You probably shouldn't work in the emergency room."

Display with Ten Commandments Ruled Constitutional by Court of Appeals

Finally some common sense:

“The Ten Commandments are as much at home in a display about the foundation of law as stars and stripes are to the American flag,” said Staver. “The Ten Commandments are part of the fabric of our country and helped shape the law.

“It defies common sense to remove a recognized symbol of law from a court of law. The ACLU might not like our history and might run from it, but the fact remains that the Ten Commandments shaped our laws and may be displayed in a court of law.”

Woman Speaks the Truth

Listen to this video, and then read this article:

I'd add... take care of the 'pre-existing condition' discrimination in insurances to her list.

I am ANGERED by those elites who try to paint us as stupid, and as followers who have no brains to THINK FOR OURSELVES!

I am NOT a male. I am NOT Southern. I am NOT uneducated. I do NOT hold a degree from the 'elite' colleges, but I am educated far beyond High School Level, and I am also SELF-EDUCATED.

I know that I could support laws that were truly doing something abut the 'problem', but it would NOT require 1700+ or 2000+ pages that require back room bribery, ... extortion, and deal making to pass! It would NOT take over 1/6 of our nation's economy. It would NOT cause me to pay for things that are abhorent to my conscience, nor would it cause me to fear for the future of the disabled, elderly, etc.

I could easily support TORT reform. I could EASILY support opening competition among insurance companies by allowing purchasers to cross State boundaries in search of better coverage for lower prices. I coudl EASILY support making it illegal to discriminate by using 'pre-existing conditions' to refuse or drop anyone from insurance coverage.

It would NOT take any shenanigans to make these changes.

This woman is NOT stupid. She is NOT a 'redneck'. She is NOT what so many would have you THINK are US citizens who attend Tea Party townhouse meetings are. She is NOT a 'tea-bagger', whatever that derogatory term may mean. She is a US CITIZEN like I am, who does deserve respect, and DOES deserve to be heard! NOT MOCKED... NOT marginalized... NOT ... ignored!

Should they continue to do this to us, there WILL be a backlash, as the PEOPLE who normally do NOT speak up or out, will continue to do so, and more and more will begin to be angered by the minimalization and castigation that has been occuring.

I am angered when the 'elitie' begin to try to paint me as a person who does not know anything, and should therefore SIT DOWN and SHUT UP while they RUIN my country!
