Homily In St Peter: Sodom and Gomorrha Were "Not Destroyed" But "Spared"

When the movie “Noah” came out, a group of us were having a discussion of how it compared to the biblical account. The priest in the group said he was unfamiliar with the biblical account.

Clearly, whomever prepared this homily only read the readings for the week and was completely ignorant of the biblical account. That is, perhaps, one of the pillars of the modern decline. Jaw dropping …More

Google maps indicates that the two parishes are 7 minutes from each-other. As a lover of the Latin mass, I would prefer it be in every parish, but I don’t see this change as draconian.

Supreme Judge Kavanaugh Has Already Betrayed

The legal question, can a state “single out” a single provider based on a chriteria not included in the original law. This would not have been heard as an abortion case. This would be more of a due process case. Kavenaugh and the rest thought the due process question was adequately answered by the lower courts while Alito et. al. thought something was missed at the District level. There is a …More

Supreme Judge Kavanaugh Has Already Betrayed

The Supreme court can only answer questions which are brought to it. In this case, the question, as I understand it, was, "If a state law allows the Medicaid recipients to use any qualified provider, can the state disqualify a provider for a reason not specified in the law?" The majority said, "no". While I find abortion abhorrent to my core, I can understand Roberts and Kavanaugh waiting for …More

While I find abortion abhorrent to my core, I can understand Roberts and Kavanaugh waiting for the right case, one that addresses public funding of abortion as a concept rather than one which abortionists can work around by simply having affiliated companies sell those precious little bodies for them.
