Culture Of Life 101 . . . “Profile: The United Nations Population Fund”

May 8, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off on Culture Of Life 101 . . . “Profile: The United Nations Population Fund”

By BRIAN CLOWES (Editor’s Note: Brian Clowes has been director of research and training at Human Life International since 1995. For the complete set of the first 100 “Culture of Life 101” articles with footnotes, e-mail him at bclowes@hli.org.) +    +    + The United Nations Population Fund, or UNFPA, is one of the three most influential population control groups in the world, standing alongside the Population Council and the International Planned Parenthood Federation. What makes UNFPA unique is that it has the full authority of the United Nations behind it and enjoys a guaranteed one billion dollars of income annually from the developed nations of the world. Unlike the many other UN agencies, population control is not a sideline or…Continue Reading

Poverty And The Papacy

May 7, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off on Poverty And The Papacy

By DONALD DeMARCO The media’s infatuation with Pope Francis, and his deep concern for the poor, exemplified by his identification with il poverello of Assisi, has obscured the equally deep concern for the poor expressed by so many of his papal Predecessors. Although the “Good News” of the Gospel, which is reflected in every papal encyclical, is news that stays news, the news carried by the daily press is quickly forgotten. The historic event on April 27, 2014 brought four Popes together: Pope Francis and Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, saying Mass, together with Pope John Paul II and Pope John XXIII being canonized. It was a momentous event, one not likely ever to be repeated. It is also an opportunity…Continue Reading

Of Psychic Phenomena And Heaven

May 6, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off on Of Psychic Phenomena And Heaven

By JAMES K. FITZPATRICK Are psychic experiences and extrasensory perception real? I say they are, or can be. Beyond that, I think they provide an answer to the objections offered by nonbelievers who doubt the reality of Jesus’ promise of an afterlife. Why do I think psychic experiences are real? Because I had one. Just one, but it was so real and intense that I have no doubt about its authenticity. It is an experience I described years ago in The Wanderer. If by chance there is anyone reading this column today who remembers the earlier column, I ask you to bear with me. The context was different back then.

ROME (ZENIT) — Former Polish President Lech Walesa who, together with St. John Paul II, led the fight against Soviet Communism, spoke at a Rome dinner April 25 held in honor of Saints John Paul II and John XXIII. The dinner was hosted by Newsmax Media. Below is the transcribed text of his speech, as provided by ZENIT New Agency. All rights reserved. +    +    + When I was involved in my opposition and fight against Communism, we all fought against more than 200,000 Soviet troops permanently based on Polish territory and over a million Soviet troops in the surrounding satellite countries, plus nuclear silos as well.

Burning Babies’ Bodies For Energy . . . How Did Societies Slip So Far Into The Flames?

By DEXTER DUGGAN Society has become a burning building whose basement is bottomless. Trapped people keep sinking deeper as the flames rage all around. It’s a descent into hell without end. It’s Dante’s Inferno. But while the force of Satan is felt everywhere, you still don’t see him because the path only continues descending toward his lair. Why won’t it ever end? How did it get started? Abortion on demand was legalized one way or another as a step forward. The back-alley abortion mills moved forth onto Main Street as legal “pro-choice” mills. Abortion becomes another type of birth control. Women start being maimed by the legal abortions. The descent doesn’t stop.

Race And Freedom

May 3, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off on Race And Freedom

By ANDREW P. NAPOLITANO Cliven Bundy should be happy for the public revelation of the private comments of fellow racist Donald Sterling; the latter has replaced the former as the person Americans most love to hate. These two bigots recently spewed racial hatred: Bundy suggesting that African-Americans might do well to consider slavery over freedom, and Sterling offering disjointed comments that reveal his evident beliefs in white supremacy. Bundy is a Nevada rancher who became a hero to the right for standing up to the heavy hand of federal suppression of property rights in the West. He and his family had been grazing their cattle on land they believed was theirs or the state of Nevada’s for more than 100…Continue Reading

“Rumors Of Wars”… New Movie Explores Future With Christians Hunted Down, Shot

May 2, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off on “Rumors Of Wars”… New Movie Explores Future With Christians Hunted Down, Shot

By DEXTER DUGGAN Americans are on edge because of widely separated terror bombings in their nation, but it doesn’t have to be this way. University students — and presumably everyone else — are told there’s an answer. The federal government mandates that each person be implanted with an all-purpose chip in the hand. The plan is “to unify the world in peace and security.” Reluctant to go along? “Sir, this is a mandate from the government….The use of this chip is required, and noncompliance has serious consequences.” It’s a new movie — Rumors of Wars — that takes what may be only a few steps into the future from our current reality of a lawless president who constantly sows strife…Continue Reading

The Frog In The Pot

May 2, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off on The Frog In The Pot

By JAMES K. FITZPATRICK Mark Twain’s story about how a frog will leap to save its life if dropped suddenly into a pot of boiling water, but sit and permit itself to be boiled to death if the heat is turned up gradually, is cited often by commentators. That is because it makes an important point: People will tolerate changes that they would find intolerable on first hearing if the changes are introduced gradually enough. Think about how our forebears would have reacted when the idea of a federal income tax was first put on the table in the early years of the 20th century — if they were told about the income taxes we are paying these days. Or…Continue Reading

Why Not Slavery? And Other Matters

May 1, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off on Why Not Slavery? And Other Matters

By GEORGE A. KENDALL Regarding the Pelletier case (see Stephen Krason, “The Justina Pelletier Case and the Abusive Child Protective System,” The Wanderer, April 17, 2014, p. 8B), some are arguing that there must be more to the case than we are hearing, that the authorities in Massachusetts must have information that they are not sharing with us, which, if made public, would justify the apparent atrocity they are committing against Justina and her family.     But if that is the case, it is incumbent on them to make this information public — immediately. As long as they do not, it is legitimate for us to ask: What are they hiding? It reminds me of the way both Presidents Johnson…Continue Reading
