Urgent Prayer Request

A mother has written to Domenico Bettenelli, asking for prayers because her husband wants to execute their baby for the crime of having clubbed feet.

From the Country that brought you Henry VIII and Elizabeth I

The latest stage in the British Euthanasia Saga is that the Lord Chancellor of England has threatened prison to doctors who conscientiously object to euthanasia. Bring it on, Whore of Babylon! Martyrs are just what Christianity in the West needs these days, and throwing us in jail is a good starting point.

Paraphrasing Byzantine Emperor Manuel II, “Show me just what Anglicanism brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as divorce, contraception, homosexuality and euthanasia.”

Speaking of Episcopalians and Muslims, you know how, when someone suggests that Islam is a violent religion, indignant Muslims respond by blowing things up? Well, something similar is going on right now with Episcopalians. Domenico Bettnelli recently posted on how the head bishopess of the ECUSA, Katherine Jefferts Schori, said that Episcopalians contracept because they’re smarter than everyone else, implying that Catholics are stupid (cf. Bettnet).

Well, indignant at his take on her statement, high-thinking Episcopalians have responded by calling Bettinelli an ignorant Catholic.

I think that’s just hilarious.

Bishops: If you support abortion, do not come to the altar

An overwhelming majority of the bishops (201-24, with two abstaining) voted in favor of telling all Catholics who support legalized abortion, not just politicians, that they should refrain from Communion. However, the bishops refuse to publicly deny communion to politicians.

But that gets back to the same basic questions: if a prominent non-Catholic came up for Communion, would the bishops deny that person? What about someone who came up to the altar drunk or otherwise obviously unprepared?

Animal fetuses

Now, I got this off Catholicity, but I’ve seen similar headlines in the secular online media lately. Everyone’s gaga over these pictures of “animals in utero”–note that they’re described as “animals,” “elephants,” “puppies,” etc., not as “pre-animals,” “fetuses,” “elephants,” etc. Note also that when pro-lifers show similar pictures of unborn babies, the pro-aborts say they’re “too graphic.” I’m thinking in particular of this picture of an elephant (noting that the article does use the term “foetus”).

And in more good news on the stem cell front

Chalk up another success to adult stem cells.

Federal Courts uphold conscientious objection of docs and medical facilities

One reason I don’t post this this blog more often is the time to comment on relevant stories. I figure I should just post them and comment if I have time.
In short, the Feminazis sued to force doctors and medical facilities to refer abortions, even if it goes against their beliefs, and the courts have thusfar found in favor of the docs. After all, doctors refuse to refer lots of things.

Ever try going to an OB/Gyn for a referral to a doctor who specializes in NFP?
