February 9, 2014 World News Comments Off on The U.N. Assault on the Catholic Church

A high-profile sex-abuse report is an attempt to bully the church into bowing before the altar of Turtle Bay. By Claudia Rosett Feb. 9, 2014 5:55 p.m. ET In the name of protecting children,the United Nations is now preaching to the Vatican. A report on the Holy See—released by a U.N. committee last week to much media fanfare—alleged that tens of thousands of children have been abused by Catholic clerics, and that the Vatican has helped cover it up. The committee strongly urged the Vatican: “Ensure a transparent sharing of all archives which can be used to hold the abusers accountable as well as those who concealed their crimes and knowingly placed offenders in contact with children.”

February 9, 2014 World News Comments Off on UN is NUTS . . . UN shows ignorance and attempts interference

Friday, February 07, 2014 The United Nations Committee on the Rights of Children issued a sixteen page, 67-paragraph report on the Holy See on January 31, 2014. It exposes the utter obliviousness of the UN to the distinction between the Catholic religion and the sovereign independent nation of Vatican City. Likewise, it exposes the real agenda at the UN to deify political correctness and to usurp authority to make itself the supreme arbiter of human activity.     First of all, Vatican City is country.  Catholicism is a religion. Yes, the sovereign ruler of the smallest nation in the world is also, simultaneously, the supreme head of the Catholic Church. Nevertheless, the United Nations is a political entity that concerns…Continue Reading

German Bishops Push To Change Guidelines For Divorced And Remarried Catholics

February 7, 2014 World News Comments Off on German Bishops Push To Change Guidelines For Divorced And Remarried Catholics

  The CWR Blog Meanwhile, the world Synod of Bishops will meet with Pope Francis next October to discuss marriage and family issues February 06, 2014 01:57 EST BY RUSSELL SHAW When Jesus said, “What therefore God has joined together, let no man put asunder” (Mt 19.6), presumably he meant it. Certainly the Catholic Church believes he did, and that conviction is the basis for its solemn teaching that sacramental marriages are indissoluble. But isn’t there such a thing as “Catholic divorce”—annulment, that is? Evidently not, since annulment—a declaration of nullity by a church court—isn’t the dissolution of a marriage but a judgment that in a particular case no sacramental marriage existed. (One common reason is that one or both…Continue Reading

What’s Heaven Like?

February 5, 2014 World News Comments Off on What’s Heaven Like?

By Matt C. Abbott From time to time, I wonder what heaven is like. I certainly hope and pray to make it there after I die. Just to make clear: Not everyone goes to heaven; that (universalism) isn’t what the Church teaches. From the Catechism of the Catholic Church (no. 1821): We can therefore hope in the glory of heaven promised by God to those who love him and do his will. In every circumstance, each one of us should hope, with the grace of God, to persevere ‘to the end’ and to obtain the joy of heaven, as God’s eternal reward for the good works accomplished with the grace of Christ. In hope, the Church prays for ‘all men…Continue Reading

IMMIGRATION

BY PHYLLIS SCHLAFLY Immigration reform rally on Capitol Hill, October, 2013     People come to America because it is a remarkable oasis of freedom, prosperity, and opportunity. Conservatives recognize that the principal reason for our unique abundance is our constitutional restraint on the power of government. As Thomas Jefferson said, “In questions of power, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.” Maintaining this system requires the public to support limited government. In a new report, Eagle Forum details how immigration is fundamentally changing the electorate to one that is much more supportive of big government. By itself, the annual flow of 1.1 million legal immigrants…Continue Reading

BY MATTHEW ARCHBOLD Tue Feb 04, 2014 11:46 EST February 4, 2014 (CardinalNewmanSociety.org) – A Massachusetts man is asking the Commonwealth to punish a Catholic school for preserving its Catholic mission, by allegedly rescinding a job offer because the applicant identified his same-sex husband as his emergency contact, according to the Boston Globe. Matthew Barrett, who is being represented by the Boston offices of Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders, filed his complaint with the Massachusetts Commission against Discrimination.  The Globe reports that he was offered the job in July as food services director at Fontbonne Academy, a Catholic all-girls prep school, before it was rescinded two days later by the head of school. “She said the Catholic religion doesn’t recognize same-sex marriage,…Continue Reading

February 4, 2014 World News Comments Off on Conservative groups push back after Obama claims no corruption in IRS targeting

BY DUSTIN SIGGINS Mon Feb 03, 2014 17:02 EST WASHINGTON, D.C., February 3, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Four conservative organizations – two targeted by the IRS, two representing targeted groups – have shot back after President Obama claimed Sunday night in an interview with Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly that “not even a smidgen of corruption” was involved in the IRS’ targeting of conservative organizations. According to David French, senior counsel for the American Center for Law & Justice, whose organization represents 41 groups in 22 states, “it’s a curious thing for [the President] to say, [especially since] one of the main people involved with the investigations has already taken the Fifth in order to not incriminate herself.” In 2010, the IRS…Continue Reading
