Senate Defeats Amendment Defunding Planned Parenthood Abortion Business

August 24, 2018 breaking Comments Off on Senate Defeats Amendment Defunding Planned Parenthood Abortion Business

Once again the United States Senate fell short of producing enough votes to be able to defund the Planned Parenthood abortion business. Today the Senate defeated an amendment sponsored by pro-life Senator Rand Paul that would have revoked Federal funding for the nation’s biggest abortion company. Last year, the Senate also fell short of having enough votes to defund Planned Parenthood. The only way the abortion business will be defunded completely is if pro-life voters head to the polls this November and provide th

August 20, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – It is time to disband the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB). Instead of wasting time on inane policy pronouncements about prudential issues like immigration, global warming, and unions, the bishops need to be focused on three things: Making readily available the sacraments (especially Confession); Rebuilding crumbling Catholic education; and Making sure our children aren’t being sexually abused. The Bishops are responsible for the spiritual order, and the laity are responsible for Christianizing the temporal order.  Don’t take my

August 18, 2018 Dear brothers and sisters in Christ of the Diocese of Madison, The past weeks have brought a great deal of scandal, justified anger, and a call for answers and action by many faithful Catholics here in the U.S. and overseas, directed at the Church hierarchy regarding sexual sins by bishops, priests, and even cardinals. Still more anger is rightly directed at those who have been complicit in keeping some of these serious sins from coming to light. For my part — and I know I am not alone — I am tired of this. I am tired of people being hurt, gravely hurt! I am tired of the obfuscation of truth. I am tired of sin. And,…Continue Reading

August 16, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – The Catholic Church in the U.S. is undergoing “possibly the worst crisis that it’s ever experienced” right now, Cardinal Burke said tonight of the ongoing sex abuse scandals and the laity’s distrust for bishops who play a part in it. “That has to be recognized and it has to be dealt with in a thorough manner which is faithful to the Church’s moral law and to the Church herself and to the office of the bishops,” Burke, the former Prefect of the Apostolic Signatu

Thomas McKenna: Your Eminence, a new wave of clergy sexual abuse has surfaced and is indicating a widespread practice of homosexuality among clergy in dioceses and seminaries across the country. What would you say is the root cause of this corruption?   Cardinal Raymond Burke: It was clear after the studies following the 2002 sexual abuse crisis that most of the acts of abuse were in fact homosexual acts committed with adolescent young men. There was a studied attempt to either overlook or to deny this. Now it seems clear in light of these recent terrible scandals that indeed there is a homosexual culture, not only among the clergy but even within the hierarchy, which needs to be purified at…Continue Reading
