About Damned Time!

The Washington Times reports that:
 "Mrs. Pelosi should be denied Communion until she changes her advocacy views on abortion, Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke said, according to the Western Center for Journalism."
Seems she is continually breaking Canon Law 915, which says:
"...that Catholics who are stubbornly contrary “in manifest grave sin are not to be admitted to Holy Communion.”
I wonder if she even goes to Mass?

(Sorry, Sister.)

The Freeburg Rule

Worth observing and passing on...

"You call me a racist for having a problem with His Majesty’s execrable policies, or insinuate in any way that my “real” problem is with having a black guy in the White House…
…I’m going to call you a coward for hiding behind someone else’s skin color."
From The House of Eratosthenes

And hiding behind someone's skin color does seem, well, racist, no?

Good News About Abortion!


From Christianity Today:

Abortion Clinics Closing at Record Rate

 The reasons vary, according to the article, from retiring doctors, to more state laws requiring clinics to adhere to the same standards at outpatient surgery clinics.


Go!  RTWT!!

Sip nails it:
"Say, shouldn't you people be out looting or something? Waiting for a morbidly obese governor to hand you a check? Getting your stories straight for your fraudulent insurance claim?...What the hell's wrong with these people"
With a very nice accompaniment!

International Buy A Nun... (Updated x3)

...A Book Day!

 Update III:

Got this from the Sister to whom I'd written:
Thank you so much, Lee. I can identify some Sisters who will be thrilled to receive the books.
Sister Kathryn
 Update II:

My book club has notified me that two of the books I've requested have been mailed.  No word back from the convent, tho...


 Didn't hear back today, and since the day is next Tuesday, I went ahead and ordered books that I've enjoyed and though the good nuns might also.  Here's my e-mail:

Hello, Sister,
As the 'official' day is next Tuesday, I went ahead and picked out four book to be sent to directly you for distribution.  They will probably be arriving over the next week or two, which is a function of how the swap club works.  Each book will be coming from a different member, so arrival is a function of how soon each member gets to it, and how far it has to travel.
I wound up ordering three books that are favorites of mine, and one similar but different from a series I have read from.
They are:
A Letter of Mary, by Laurie R. King
The Dante Club, by Matthew Pearl
The Tao Te Ching, by Lao Tsu, translated by John C. H. Wu
The Best American Short Stories 1997, ed. by Kenison(?)
I hope you all will enjoy them!

I wondered what books to get, and who to give them to.  I suddenly realized/decided that I wanted to send them to the nuns (or the order, anyway) who taught me in grade school.  I've managed to track down the "Mother Ship" convent in California, and sent an e-mail off asking what books might be appreciated.

So, if you know (or knew) a nun, buy her a book!

(This seems to be a word of mouth/blog thing, so pass it on!)

Cheese Nazis....

...from Fox:

Florida official tells Christian charity to choose between Jesus and cheese

A Florida ministry that feeds the poor said a state agriculture department official told them they would not be allowed to receive USDA food unless they removed portraits of Christ, the Ten Commandments, a banner that read “Jesus is Lord” and stopping giving Bibles to the needy.
“They told us they could no longer allow us to have any religious information where the USDA food is going to be,” said Kay Daly, executive director of the Christian Service Center.

Florida is saying its the USDA's call.  The USDA is saying, according to the article, that basically as long as a religious organization is not discriminating against people of different faiths, religious display is OK

I didn't vote for him.

Demon's Nest of Sentiments...

Dru* on Syria:

Remember, kids, "When it comes to the law, what really matters is the name you succeed in imposing on the facts, not the facts themselves"!  (Harvard Law Professor Jerome Cohen, ca. 1971)

* I shall attribute these to Dru, since she is more of  a demon (a succubus) than Mr. McEldowney, and it's her picture at the bottom of each sentiment.  (I'm giving Mr. McEldowney the benefit of the doubt...)

Stolen From Gerard


Things that are true but must never be spoken for fear of penalty: Some other hatefacts - things that are true but must never be spoken for fear of penalty:
  • Native Americans were not living in peace and oneness with the environment before Europeans arrived in America.
  • Men are raped more often than women in America - in prison; the Justice Department estimated that over 200,000 rapes of men happened in 2008 alone.
  • Gun ownership has skyrocketed in America, but gun crimes dropped - and the tougher the gun laws, the more gun crime an area suffers.
  • On average, men test 5 points higher on IQ than women.
  • Groups of young black men are attacking whites due to racial hatred, and the incidents of this have exploded in frequency and number since Obama became president.
  • For the last fifteen or more years, the average warming on the planet has been .05 degrees per decade... plus or minus .08 degrees.  As in no warming, or even cooling.
  • On average men are better than women at mathematical skills.
  • Homosexuals are much m ore likely to suffer from and transmit sexually transmitted diseases than normal people.
-- Word Around the Net: HATEFACTS AND HERESY

My log for the fire is this one: Asians have a higher average I.Q. than whites, who have a higher average I.Q. than blacks.  It's only a coupe of points either side of us whites, but, still.  Dunno about Hispanics.

I'm hoping to get a place next to Gerard in Hell.  You know it's where we're going for this.

My Take On...


Hamas and al Queida duking it out.  What in God's name is the UPSIDE of getting involved? For a line in the sand he denies he ever personally drew.

Unless by "involved" you mean nuking the entire area (excluding Israel) from orbit.

(Another one grabbed from Gerard.)

Feeling Gerard's Pain

When I got the "bad ware" alert from Firefox/Google about the comments section on one of the posts are Gerard's site, I sent him a e-mail by way of a heads up, and we had a little conversation  (bottom-up post order):

Maybe Bill got miffed about something?? 
But, when I saw this post this morning:
My apologies. This is a very annoying time. Fixing this issue takes, I have found, lots of digging with the superb staff at Hosting Matters, a good deal of digging out of code that came in from Croatia, a resetting of all security params, a restore from a backup and then a review from Google.
It is indeed a royal pain.
I felt I should condole him some more.  (Read from the bottom up...)

...sorta sounds like my last divorce.

 I suspect he would appreciate prayer in any denomination at this point.  It does sound as if he's getting good support at Hosting Matters, tho.  Big plus in his favor.

Racist Cookies

Oreos were my favorite cookie when I was growing up.  Being a touch OCD, I would eat them three at a time, so the three rows in the bag would always be even.

As I got older, I learned that "Oreo" had a connotation other that a tasty, creme filled cookie.  It also referred to a black person who was really "white" on the inside.  Dr. Benjamin Carson, Mayor Mia Love, Sen. Tim Scott, (C), S.C., and Allan West, to name just a few.  (I suspect  that Dr. Martin Luther King would be on the list, if he were alive a preaching what he preached in the 60s).  Don King, Karl Malone, Harriet Tubman,and the Rock are all mentioned in a HuffPo article as being Republicans (as was Dr. King.)

This, however, is not a label that would apply to our President.  Yes, he may be a half-and-half kind of guy, but is innermost self is definitely not white.  Which brings me to what I found in the local Giant on my last trip out:

Pink filled Oreos.  As you can see, there is a "plain vanilla" Oreo, for those of us who are white both on the inside and the outside.  There was also a double-decker - cookie, vanilla filling, cookie, chocolate filling, cookie.  A more appropriate symbol for our president's ethnicity, I suppose. But the pink filling hit the spot, in a way that the term "red diaper baby"was applied to children raised in the U.S. by Communists.  So, we have a pink Oreo president.

Is anyone surprised?
