Ahhhh.....Reporters of Fake News Resign from CNN

Well that's refreshing. And then there's the joke asking, "What are three CNN journalists at the bottom of the ocean?" Answer? A good start. Now, let's move on to MSNBC.

Three CNN Journalists Resign After Retracted Story

Yup, CNN is a "fake news" channel concerned about nothing but "ratings!" Watch what Project Veritas found with their undercover research on CNN. "It's a business....They've gotta do what they gotta do to make the money." Which proves the accuracy of the old adage - follow the money. "Trump is good for business right now." And, of course, they're talking about the rabid, mad dog attack. It pleases their liberal viewers.

Monday Headlines and Action Items on Church Issues

1) The left is attacking Bishop Paprocki for upholding Catholic teaching on gender insanity. Don't just stand there, Catholics, do something to defend this courageous bishop!

Thank Bishop Thomas Paprocki who is being viciously attacked by the left for denying funerals to "married" gays.

After you sign the petition, why not send a direct message or call. Contact information for the diocese is here.  I just sent an email thanking the bishop and telling him I'm having a Mass said for him. I also signed the petition. Let's all offer a rosary today for this real shepherd! Sadly, we don't have that many.

Johnny Depp Jokes about Assassinating Donald Trump....Not Funny, Dude!

Johnny Depp is just one more rich, selfish, narcissistic celebrity showing his "make America kind again" side.

So, I have a question for Johnny Depp..."When was the last time a Republican assassinated a rich, narcissistic Hollywood actor who, as you said, "lies for a living?" I sure can't recall a single one. It's all about #DemocratViolence, folks. It's the party sport.

LGBT Crowd in a Tizzy over Courageous Bishop Thomas Paprocki!

A modern Bishop John Fisher
Bishop: Pastors Must Deny Funerals to Catholics in Same-Gender Marriages

How encouraging to the flock to find a pastor who cares enough about the souls in his care to warn them of the danger to their souls from their "manifest grave sin." 

Yes, we are all sinners, but there's a big difference between the one who says, "Have mercy on me, Lord, for I'm a sinner" and works hard to amend his life vs. the one who says, "Love me, love my sin." and stands proudly affirming immoral behavior. The first is a struggling sinner. The second reflects arrogant scandal to all who know him.

The Activist Mommy Goes After #GenderInsanity!

Wow! Why doesn't she tell us what she really thinks! I hope you go like her page.

Catholic, Steve Scalise, Watched Over by the Lord

Pray for the Scalise family. 
Talk about "coincidences" or "God incidents!"  The assistant pastor of Catholic Congressman Steve Scalise and his family from back home in Louisiana was in D.C. the day of the shooting. Fr. Tim Hedrick hurried to the hospital and actually watched the surgery and prayed on site for the congressman and the medical staff which included several Catholics.

Read the inspiring story and thank God for watching over his people. And continue to pray for the full recovery of Congressman Scalise and for his family.

Who Really Cares about the Children of the Poor?

Wouldn't the Democrats say this child would
be better off if she were killed by abortion?
Democrats love to preen and puff out their feathers like a peacock on the make. They love the poor and those evil Republicans want them all to starve and freeze to death. Strange -- from a party that thinks killing tiny babies is not only a right but a positive good and favors killing them after birth if they manage to survive the first attack.

Crisis Magazine has a great article by Regis Nicoll about the hypocritical "party of the poor" and the obligations of government vs. local communities and churches.

Let's face it. Poverty is big business. Many bureaucrats who administer these programs make six-figure salaries. According to the GAO, BILLIONS of dollars in fraud happens EVERY YEAR in the government MEDICAID program. Fraud and embezzlement unfortunately are rampant. A lot of people enrich themselves off the poor!

Oh, I'm sure there are Democrats who truly care about the poor. But, I ask you, can you imagine Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid or Michelle Obama or Bill Clinton or Debbie Wasserman Schulz picking lice out of a poor child's hair or ladling soup at a shelter? If they were, it would be for the photo op. Click on the article below. The author hits the nail on the head.

Words, Words, Words -- Steppingstones to the Word Made Flesh!

My mother loved words. She used to read the dictionary. Really! It amused us children, but as an adult I appreciate her fascination with words.

I was thinking about that this morning at adoration. I'm reading The Spirit of the Liturgy by Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger who became Pope Benedict XVI. As I read the section on Sacred Time I thought, "I want to look up the derivation of some of these words: liturgy, reality, epiphany, cosmology."

 It isn't that I don't understand what I'm reading and need word definitions. But I think understanding can be enriched by plumbing the depth of word meanings. Where did they come from? How has the word changed? Why does the author use this particular word instead of another? I guess that's my inner English major coming out.

Muhammad and "Gabriel" the Genie

Muhammad's "Gabriel"?
Could those who blindly follow Muhammad as their heaven-sent prophet and leader and adhere to Islam as the one divinely revealed religion and the only true way to salvation possibly be deceived by Satan?

City Journal, Spring 2004, published an article by Theodore Dalrymple, titled When Islam Breaks Down. Dalrymple said, “No Muslim in an Islamic society would dare to suggest that the Koran was not divinely dictated through the mouth of the Prophet but rather was a compilation of a charismatic man’s words, and incorporating, with no very great originality, Judaic, Christian, and Zoroastrian elements.”

To be sure, Muslims believe that the Quran is of divine origin, eternal and co-existing in the very essence of Allah and is his sacred and direct word dictated in Arabic by the Angel Gabriel to Muhammad, containing Islamic revelations and doctrine. They believe that through Muhammad’s visions of the Archangel Gabriel, the Quran was revealed by installments, some at Mecca and some at Medina, over the span of twenty-three years. As the words flowed from Gabriel to the inspired lips of the Prophet Muhammad, they were written down upon palm leaves, leather or wood by his secretaries Zeid and Abdullah.
