I found this on another blog - just think about this for a moment:
I have a question. Last week I was asked to fill the Holy Water font at church. I was directed to get the water from the sacristy sink that Fr. Théoden and Fr. Aragorn use to wash up. There was no salt and no blessing so how can it be Holy Water? Can you pre-bless all the water that comes form Father's sink?

Today we see Our Lord's triumphal entry into Jerusalem. He entered riding upon an ass. The Apostles were told to go and get this animal. They were told exactly where to find it and what they were to say to the owner if he should question them.
This animal was tied and the Apostles freed it to make it of service to Our Lord. And so it must be with every sinner. Every sinner is as stupid and stubborn as an ass. And every sinner finds himself tied and bound with the cords of sin. And if he is ever to be of any value or use he is dependent on the Apostles to come and untie him and to bring him to Our Lord, where he will find his very purpose for being.
The ass has the reputation of being stupid. There is no one more stupid than the sinner. In the world of business if someone were to sell all his possessions for a couple of pieces of broken glass, everyone would say that such a man was stupid. Yet, what must we say of the sinner who sells his eternal life for a fleeting moment of pleasure. He sells much more than worldly goods. He exchanges eternal life for some shiny shards of glass. One cannot be more stupid or foolish than that. But, that is exactly what the majority of the world does today.
The ass is also renowned for being stubborn. Who is more stubborn than the obstinate sinner? He acts like an addict. He is willing to sacrifice everything he has: money, possessions, dignity, honor, health, life, and even his very soul for what? A brief moment of intoxication which he will regret the first moment he returns to his senses. When he is aroused from his stupor he knows he will suffer nothing so painful, he will be filled with remorse and disgust, but still he is eager for the next chance to do it all over again.
It is not really fair to this poor animal to make this comparison. After all it is said that once this animal has had the experience of trying to walk on ice, that it will never again attempt it. You would sooner kill it than ever to get it to go near ice again. So actually the sinner is even stupider than the ass. The ass is capable of learning from its mistakes; the sinner has lowered himself beneath the level of a brute beast because he will not even learn from his mistakes.
The sinner is truly a very pitiful site. He is stubborn and stupid and to top it all off he is tied up and is unable now to do anything for himself. There is no earthly way for the sinner to improve his situation. He is on the road to hell, and there is no turning back without someone coming to his aid. Our Lord has seen fit to offer assistance to the sinner despite his unworthiness. Just as Jesus sent His Apostles to untie the ass and bring it to Him, so He sends His apostles (bishops and priests) to the sinner to untie him and free him from his sins. And then the apostles bring the sinner to God (or rather God comes to the sinner). The sinner is freed from the binding of sin through the sacrament of Penance, and is brought to God in the sacrament of the Holy Eucharist.
If we sinners will allow those sent by God to untie us from our sins, and stop being so stubborn and returning and binding ourselves over and over again with sin, then we will find that our Lord will come to us and will transform us in the sacrament of the Holy Eucharist.
There was no greater honor for this beast of burden than to be privileged to carry Our Lord in His triumphal entry into Jerusalem.
So it is with the sinner. There is no greater honor for him than to allow Jesus Christ to enter into his body and to be privileged to carry Him about with us as we go. But the sinner must be careful not to allow Christ to leave him. He must be very watchful that he does not end up driving Him away by further stupidity and stubbornness. If the sinner keeps driving Christ away eventually Christ will stop sending His apostles to untie and bring him to Him.
It was just a few days after this triumphal entry that those who rejoiced in Christ's coming into the city, were now crying out for His blood. This is just what the recalcitrant sinner does. He is more obstinate and dull than any brute beast, and he eventually will reap the rewards of such obstinacy and dull wittedness in the eternal fires of Hell.
STRANGER THAN FICTION - the truth about the 9/11 attacks:
this may vanish from this site too - so print it quick
Friday, March 30, 2007
Now - I know full well what is going on here - Rosie O' Donnell is by no means a friend of those wanting to expose the truth about 9/11.
Rosie O' Donnell is being put forward to speak many truthful things about 9/11 for the sole purpose of making anyone else who brings forth the same truth look crazy.
Rosie O' Donnell is a lesbian pig - completely morally bankrupt - the same with Charlie Sheen - another celebrity that is running all over speaking out about 9/11 - but he too is an adulterous pig - with no credibility at all.
These people can be torn apart with ad hominem attacks and they set up anyone no matter how much evidence and truth they have for the same attacks.
And now - by calling for her execution - they are setting the stage to call for anyone to be "strung up for treason" if we do not accept the bovine excrement that our government is handing us.
btw - I am convinced that her statement about the brits is 100% accurate.

“[Besides his doctrinal learning] St. Albert the Great (c. +1206-1208) wrote on botany, mineralogy, astronomy, physics, chemistry, anthropology, and other subjects… St. Albert knew and wrote about 114 species of birds, 113 quadrupeds, 139 aquatic animals, 61 serpents and 49 worms. He was the first to mention the weasel and the arctic bear, the first to speak intelligently about the reproductive functions of birds. He was the first man in 1,500 years to study the physiology of plants…. He described bees, ants, spiders, eels, salmon – and their habits… St. Albert was a special expert on horses and their diseases. He can in fact be called both the father of veterinary medicine and the patron of veterinarians.” (33 Doctors of the Church, pp. 321-322)
Even the very science that tries to attack God and His Church is owed to her!
Origen (185-254AD) on Baptism
Wednesday, March 28, 2007
Letter of the Sacred Congregation of the Holy Office August 8, 1949, to the Archbishop of Boston.
(Controversy which arose at Boston College on the subject of the axiom, "Outside the Church there is no salvation.")
We are bound by divine and Catholic faith to believe all those things which are contained in the word of God, whether it be Scripture or Tradition, and are proposed by the Church to be believed as divinely revealed, not only through solemn judgment but also through the ordinary and universal teaching office.
Now, among those things which the Church has always preached and will never cease to preach is contained also that infallible statement by which we are taught that there is no salvation outside the Church.
However, this dogma must be understood in that sense in which the Church herself understands it. For, it was not to private judgments that Our Savior gave for explanation those things that are contained in the deposit of faith, but to the teaching authority of the Church.
Now, in the first place, the Church teaches that in this matter there is question of a most strict command of Jesus Christ. For He explicitly enjoined on his apostles to teach all nations to observe all things whatsoever He Himself had commanded.
Obligation to enter the Church
Now, among the commandments of Christ, that one holds not the least place, by which we are commanded to be incorporated by Baptism into the Mystical Body of Christ, which is the Church, and to remain united to Christ and to his Vicar, through whom He Himself in a visible manner governs the Church on earth.
Therefore, no one will be saved who, knowing the Church to have been divinely established by Christ, nevertheless refuses to submit to the Church or withholds obedience from the Roman pontiff, the Vicar of Christ on earth.
Not only did the Savior command that all nations should enter the Church, but He also decreed the Church to be a means of salvation, without which no one can enter the kingdom of eternal glory.
The "desire" may suffice
In his infinite mercy God has willed that the effects, necessary for one to be saved, of those helps to salvation which are directed toward man's final end, not by intrinsic necessity, but only by divine institution, can also be obtained in certain circumstances when those helps are used only in desire and longing. This we see clearly stated in the Sacred Council of Trent, both in reference to the Sacrament of Baptism and in reference to the Sacrament of Penance.
The same in its own degree must be asserted of the Church, in as far as she is the general help to salvation. Therefore, that one may obtain eternal salvation, it is not always required that he be incorporated into the Church actually as a member, but it is necessary that at least he be united to her by desire and longing.
The implicit "desire"
However, this desire need not always be explicit, as it is in catechumens; but when a person is involved in invincible ignorance, God accepts also an implicit desire, so called because it is included in that good disposition of soul whereby a person wishes his will to be conformed to the will of God.
These things are clearly taught in that dogmatic letter which was issued by the Sovereign Pontiff, Pope Pius XII, on June 29, 1948, "On the Mystical Body of Jesus Christ". For in this letter the Sovereign Pontiff clearly distinguishes between those who are actually incorporated into the Church as members, and those who are united to the Church only by desire.
Discussing the members of which the Mystical Body is composed here on earth, the same August Pontiff says: "Actually only those are to be included as members of the Church who have been baptized and profess the true faith, and who have not been so unfortunate as to separate themselves from the unity of the Body, or been excluded by legitimate authority for grave faults committed".
Toward the end of this same Encyclical Letter, when most affectionately inviting to unity those who do not belong to the body of the Catholic Church, he mentions those who "are related to the Mystical Body of the Redeemer by a certain unconscious yearning and desire", and these he by no means excludes from eternal salvation, but on the other hand states that they are in a condition "in which they cannot be sure of their salvation" since "they still remain deprived of those many heavenly gifts and helps which can only be enjoyed in the Catholic Church".
With these wise words he reproves both those who exclude from eternal salvation all united to the Church only by implicit desire, and those who falsely assert that men can be saved equally well in every religion.
Necessity of faith
But it must not be thought that any kind of desire of entering the Church suffices that one may be saved. It is necessary that the desire by which one is related to the Church be animated by perfect charity. Nor can an implicit desire produce its effect, unless a person has supernatural faith: "For he who comes to God must believe that God exists and is a rewarder of those who seek Him". The Council of Trent declares: "Faith is the beginning of man's salvation, the foundation and root of all justification, without which it is impossible to please God and attain to the fellowship of his children".
(Practical dispositions relative to Reverend Leonard Feeney.)
Submission to the Church
Therefore, let them who in grave peril are ranged against the Church seriously bear in mind that after "Rome has spoken" they cannot be excused even by reasons of good faith. Certainly, their bond, and duty of obedience toward the Church is much graver than that of those who as yet are related to the Church `'only by an unconscious desire". Let them realize that they are children of the Church, lovingly nourished by her with the milk of doctrine and the sacraments, and hence, having heard the clear voice of their Mother, they cannot be excused from culpable ignorance, and therefore to them apply without any restriction that principle: submission to the Catholic Church and to the Sovereign Pontiff is required as necessary for salvation.

Pope Leo XIII
Satis Cognitum (# 5), June 29, 1896:
“It happens that, as in the human body, some member may be cut off – a hand, a finger, a foot. Does the soul follow the amputated member? As long as it was in the body, it lived; separated, it forfeits life. So the Christian is a Catholic as long as he lives in the body: cut off from it he becomes a heretic – the life of the Spirit follows not the amputated member

Israeli officer sells weapons to terrorists in Iraq
Wed, 07 Mar 2007 22:44:47
Ma'ariv Daily has reported that an Israeli retired officer sells weapons to terrorist groups in Iraq.
Shmoel Avivi, an Israeli retired officer, had established a firm in Iraq 2 years ago, which secretly sold arms to terrorist groups in Iraq, Ma'ariv reported.
Amnesty International reported that Avivi was one of the biggest weapon dealers in the Middle East.
Iraqi sources earlier announced that terrorist attacks in Iraq were backed by the intelligent agencies of CIA and Mossad and the secret agents of Iraqi former regime.
Earlier, Iraqi parliament security commission chairman Hadi Ameri had accused the occupying soldiers of secretly directing the terrorist attacks and forming terror squads in Iraq.
Brooksville, Florida proposes to foreclose homes and seize cars over less than $20 in parking tickets.
The city council in Brooksville, Florida voted this week to advance a proposal granting city officials the authority to place liens and foreclose on the homes of motorists accused of failing to pay a single $5 parking ticket. Non-homeowners face having their vehicles seized if accused of not paying three parking offenses.
According to the proposed ordinance, a vehicle owner must pay a parking fine within 72 hours if a meter maid claims his automobile was improperly parked, incurring tickets worth between $5 and $250. Failure to pay this amount results in the assessment of a fifty-percent "late fee." After seven days, the city will place a lien on the car owner's home for the amount of the ticket plus late fees, attorney fees and an extra $15 fine. The fees quickly turn a $5 ticket into a debt worth several hundred dollars, growing at a one-percent per month interest rate. The ordinance does not require the city to provide notice to the homeowner at any point so that after ninety days elapse, the city will foreclose. If the motorist does not own a home, it will seize his vehicle after the failure to pay three parking tickets.
Any motorist who believes a parking ticket may have been improperly issued must first pay a $250 "appeal fee" within seven days to have the case heard by a contract employee of the city. This employee will determine whether the city should keep the appeal fee, plus the cost of the ticket and late fees, or find the motorist not guilty. Council members postponed a decision on whether to reduce this appeal fee until final adoption of the measure which is expected in the first week of April.
The full text of the ordinance is available in a 605k PDF file at the source link below.Source: Ordinance No. 743 (Brooksville, Florida City Council, 3/19/2007)
The last official act of any corrupt government is to loot the public.
This sermon is packed full of solid doctrine. Note the emphasis on the cause for all of the religious anarchy today: just as Lucifer would not obey, so do his demon spawn (children) repeat "Non serviam."
Today we have the one true Faith (true Roman Catholicism) standing in opposition to the numerous sects of false christianity (protestant, fundamentalism, orthodox, liturgical, non-liturgical, bible-believing, etc...).
So it was when our Lord walked the earth. There was the true Hebrew Faith (Old Testament Catholicism) followed by the faithful servants of God and there was a false faith (Judaism) opposed to the true Faith. Judaism is simply Old Testament Protestantism.
This can be demonstrated by the fact that Jesus tells the followers of Judaism that Abraham rejoiced in His coming. Abraham was an Old Testament Catholic - the jews to whom Jesus spoke were follwers of Judaism - Old Testament protestantism!
This fact can also be demonstrated by the fact that Moses and Elijah appeared with Jesus at the Transfiguration. Moses and Elijah were Old Testament Catholics and they testified to Jesus, while the followers of Judaism, the Old Testmant Protestants plotted against our Lord!
The following article clearly shows the similarities between those who still follow Old Testament Protestantism. Note the divisions, just like in New Testament Protestantism.
They will also share a similar lot in hell!
Jewish seminary to admit gays
NEW YORK - The major seminary and flagship institution of Conservative Judaism said Monday it will start accepting openly gay and lesbian students, after scholars who interpret Jewish law for the movement voted to allow it.
Arnold Eisen, the incoming chancellor for the Jewish Theological Seminary, said the decision was made after extensive discussion with faculty and students, a survey on views of the issue within the movement and a meeting of the school's trustees.
"The larger issue has been how we can remain true to our tradition in general and to halakah (Jewish law) in particular while staying fully responsive to and immersed in our society and culture," Eisen said in a statement distributed to the school community and its supporters.
The Conservative branch holds the middle ground in American Judaism, adhering to tradition while allowing some change for modern circumstances.
The larger and more liberal Reform Jewish movement, as well as the smaller Reconstructionist wing, allow gays to become rabbis; the Orthodox branch bars gays and women from ordination.
In December, the Committee on Jewish Law and Standards voted to allow the seminaries to decide on their own whether to admit openly gay students. However, their decision also left leeway for synagogues to reject gay and lesbian clergy if the congregations believe that same-sex relationships violate Scripture.
Earlier this month, a smaller Conservative seminary in Los Angeles, the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies at the University of Judaism, announced that it has accepted its first openly gay and lesbian applicants.

In the beginning, God created heaven and earth. … God said, "Let there be ['Fiat'] light," and there was light. … Genesis 1:1-3
Reflection: Scarcely had Mary uttered her Fiat ["Let it be done"] when the Son of God became also the Son of Mary. O Fiat to be venerated above every other Fiat! For with a 'Fiat' God created light, heaven and earth; but with Mary's 'Fiat' God became man, like us!

Statement Adds to Controversy over Drugs Prescribed for Questionable Psychiatric Diagnoses
With increasing international concern about the large number of children labeled with so-called psychiatric disorders and prescribed mind-altering drugs, even the pioneer of psychiatry’s billing bible and “godfather of ADHD," Dr. Robert Spitzer, has now admitted that normal children are being labeled. Spitzer, a Columbia University psychiatrist, told BBC2 that children experiencing perfectly normal signs of being happy and sad are being labeled as mentally ill. While admitting this, he stopped short of informing BBC viewers that there is no scientific evidence that any of the millions of children so diagnosed have any physical abnormality that justifies the diagnosis. Nor that because of this, psychiatrists cannot agree on who is sick and who is well. Yet despite this fallible "science," worldwide sales of psychotropic drugs prescribed to treat "mental disorders," including stimulants antipsychotics and antidepressants, now exceed $80 billion annually.
Anyone with a tiny amount of common sense could have told you this.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Debris that may have contained bits of bone from victims of the World Trade Center attacks was used to fill potholes and pave city roads, according to court papers filed on Friday...
...The remains of about 40 percent of the victims were never recovered, and hundreds of bone fragments have been discovered in and around Ground Zero in the last six months, the lawsuit says.
NEW YORK — U.S. female soldiers in Iraq were assaulted or raped by male soldiers in the women’s latrines, and an alarming number committed suicide, Col. Janis Karpinski reportedly testified before an international human rights commission of inquiry last month.
“Because the women were in fear of getting up in the darkness [to go to the latrine], they were not drinking liquids after 3 or 4 in the afternoon,” Karpinski testified, according to a report on Truthout.org. “In the 100 degree heat, they were dying of dehydration in their sleep.”
Karpinski’s testimony was reported by Margorie Cohn, a professor at Thomas Jefferson School of Law and president-elect of the National Lawyers Guild who writes a weekly column for the website....
The latrine for female soldiers at Camp Victory wasn’t located near their barracks, so they had to go outside if they needed to use the bathroom, Karpinski told retired U.S. Army Col. David Hackworth in a September 2004 interview, Cohn reported. “There were no lights near any of their facilities, so women were doubly easy targets in the dark of the night.” It was there that male soldiers assaulted and raped women soldiers.
Karpinski testified that a surgeon for the coalition’s joint task force said in a briefing that “women in fear of getting up in the hours of darkness to go out to the port-a-lets or the latrines were not drinking liquids after 3 or 4 in the afternoon, and in 120 degree heat or warmer, because there was no air-conditioning at most of the facilities, they were dying from dehydration in their sleep.”...
Can you imagine if female soldiers were being raped by Iraqis - it would be all over Fox News and the other networks - yet this report is not being covered by any of the Zionist media outlets! It has to be reported to an "international human rights" organization for something to be done about it!
Saturday, March 24, 2007
In this Sunday's Gospel we see an eternal conflict in full bloom. All the people of the world are divided into two groups. "He that is of God, heareth the words of God." And so the logical corollary: He that is not of God does not hear the words of God. The one finds eternal life and the other loses eternal life. There is no in between.
To those who will not hear the words of God there is no proof possible or sufficient that will make them believe. Even though they cannot convict our Lord of any sin; and even though they see clearly that He has performed many miracles, they refuse to believe.
To these poor self-deluded souls our Lord at last abandons them to their own devices. "But Jesus hid Himself, and went out of the temple."
The Jews were the first to officially and obstinately reject Our Lord, so consequently they are among the most depraved people on this earth.
Even though Christ never walked into the temple again He soon came back into Jerusalem and performed more miracles. He healed a blind man; He instructed them again, and endeavored to convince them of His Divinity. He still offered them hope as He hung from the cross. He gave them many years which included His Resurrection, Ascension, Pentecost, the miracles and preaching of the Apostles, etc. still they would not believe. This blindness is such that it is passed on from generation to generation, and is even embraced by other people that are not physical descendants (Khazars).
And because the Jews will not hear the words of God they are lost. Their temple was destroyed and so was their priesthood. The only thing they can cling to is their synagogues with the corrupt teachings of the Talmud which now takes precedence even over the sacred Pentateuch. And unless their blindness is removed in this life they will be eternally lost in the fires of Hell.
Many may argue that they have the sacred texts of the Old Testament and therefore there is something that is good and pleasing in their beliefs or in their synagogues. This is not true. What they may preserve that is true will only be for their greater condemnation. Those who laid violent hands upon Christ were not sanctified by the holiness of that which they touched but were only made guiltier. The same applies to places: though they may contain good books this does not make them good. Those places that desecrate that which is holy are an abomination and Catholics must avoid those places because they are dens of devils.
The early Church had to fight hard to keep the Judaizers from destroying souls. It was very tempting for the early Christians to try to be both Jewish and Christian. This is impossible for one hears the words of God and the other does not. One is inspired by God the other by Satan.
This Judaizing has not ended. Today it takes on a slightly different approach but the effect is the same. The Freemasonic lodges are doing the same work as the Judaizers. They will tell you that you can be a good Catholic and a good Freemason. They will tell you that they believe in the same God, they will even tell you that they have and use the sacred scriptures in their lodges. They may even pretend that they are just a "fraternal" and not a "religious" society. But the fact is they have rejected Jesus Christ and therefore they and their lodges are dens of devils. And every Catholic has been warned throughout the ages to avoid these people and places because they are very dangerous to the life of the soul.
The modernist Novus Ordo likewise has become much like the synagogue or the lodge. It is man centered and not God centered, the altar of sacrifice has been replaced by a table for a meal, the sacrificing priesthood has been replaced by a prayer leader, the reverence and honor due to Our Lord in the Sacred Species is gone, etc. Yes, they may contain many sacred texts but, what have they done with them? That good which they have retained will be like to the Jews, and Masons; only for their greater punishment. True Catholics cannot participate in this apostasy.
We must either hear the words of God which have been spoken to us for over two thousand years and be saved, or we must reject them and be eternally lost.
I do not recall seeing the John Travolta-Olivia Newton-John movie called Grease - I remember hearing about it and that it was about teenagers in the 1950's. I assumed it was one of those teen films that focused on the problems of being a teen and teen rebellion.
Sooo - when our local high school was doing a production of this and the whole town was raving about what an excellent job the kids were doing, etc... - and unfortunately - i had family participitating in it in a small way - I reluctantly went to see it.
The entire plot of the film was about a "good girl" being pressured to fornicate, smoke, drink, wear immodest clothing, and use foul language. AND IN THE FINALE - SHE DOES ALL OF THE ABOVE!
This play made it seem wrong to not want to fornicate - that it was abnormal to want to remain a virgin!
The content was unbelievable. There were several dance scenes with VERY innapropriate gestures - far worse than any movements that Elvis Presley did - and his were bad enough to keep him off of TV in the 1950's for at least a few years!
There were several scenes where boys refered to girls anatomy in very vulgar terms.
There was a scene where a girl is talking about her "friend" being late and that the "balloon" broke and that she thought she was pregnant! - THIS IS A HIGH SCHOOL PRODUCTION! - not that it would be approrpriate for any age!
There was a scene were boys were looking at a pornographic magazine.
There was a scene were a girl sings a song mocking the "good girl" for wanting to remain a virgin!
There were several scenes with the teens smoking, drinking, swearing, etc...
There was even a scene were a radio DJ (obviously supposed to be an adult) is kissing a high school girl at a dance!
I wish that I had the courage of the Saints - i should have got up and walked to the front of the stage and condemned this filth - but i did not - i just sat there in total amazement that all of the parents were laughing and applauding at this filth!
Just another in a long list of reasons to homeschool!
Democrats agree to fund Iraq war for another 1.5 years
It's important to understand that by then Iraq will be destroyed, which is the plan, as Bollyn explained here.

DeLay: I quit for Israel
Tom DeLay says he quit the U.S. Congress to fight for Israel and conservative causes.
The former Republican majority leader in the U.S. House of Representatives was forced to step down from his leadership post last year to face charges of breaking fund-raising laws in his home state of Texas. DeLay surprised colleagues by quitting Congress altogether and joining a conservative think tank.
Appearing on CNN on Thursday to promote his new book, "No Retreat, No Surrender," DeLay said he stepped down because "I had to do two things, push the conservative cause and support Israel." He said he felt he would be more effective doing so as a commentator than as a rank-and-file congressman. DeLay was one of Israel's fiercest defenders in the House, at times deriding bills driven by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, the main pro-Israel lobby, as insufficiently pro-Israel.
WHEN WILL WE GET A LEADER WILLING TO FIGHT FOR AMERICA?
THINK ABOUT THIS a US Congressman publicly amits that he quit the United States Congress to fight for a foreign nation and nobody even cares!
School's No-Go on 'Be Happy, Not Gay' T-Shirt Prompts Lawsuit
Two Illinois Teens Want to Promote 'Straight Alliance' While Peers Protest Homosexual Discrimination
WASHINGTON -- March 23, 2007— Two suburban Chicago students filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court claiming their high school violated one of the students' civil rights by not letting her wear an anti-gay T-shirt last year.
Heidi Zamecnik, 17, of Naperville, and Alexander Nuxoll, 14, of Bolingbrook - students at Neuqua Valley High School in Naperville - filed the lawsuit Wednesday seeking court permission to openly express their opinions on homosexuality during the National Day of Silence, scheduled for April 18.
On the Day of Silence, students can refrain from speaking as an effort to protest discrimination against homosexuals.
In response to a Day of Silence event at the school in April 2006, Zamecnik wore a shirt that read "MY DAY OF SILENCE, STRAIGHT ALLIANCE" on the front and "BE HAPPY, NOT GAY" on the back, according to the suit filed Wednesday.
According to the suit, one school administrator ordered Zamecnik to remove the T-shirt and another official ordered her to cross out "NOT GAY" with a marker...

The paintings were to be read in pairs, one from the left and one from the right. Thus the Baptism of Christ faces the Circumcision of Moses' son by Perugino and Pinturicchio.
A comparison of the pairs of scenes shows clearly that the principal concern was to show how the new religion of Christ was deeper and more spiritual than the Jewish religion. Thus the pair of frescoes showing the Baptism and the Circumcision emphasize how baptism - prefigured, according to Augustine and many of the Fathers of Church, by circumcision - represents a "spiritual circumcision."
very interesting video clip of a man using nothing but gravity and some sticks to move huge rocks.
I wonder how many people have abandoned their faith or at the very least, their search for the truth because of the crazy theories of men like Erich von Daniken (Chariots of the God) and their false claims that it was impossible for the ancient pagans to build things like stonehenge and the pyramids.
Look how many "new age" people there are who think that the pyramids and Stonehenge have special powers and that they had to have been built with some long lost mystical technology.
The long lost mystical technology is nothing more than common sense!

"The heart of the matter is the RCC. Talk about selectively reading the Bible, is there a catholic who has actually even opened theirs? At least the protestants made an attempt. To you it's all about the church. The church was not given any of the authority you claim for it."
Lets just "open" the Bible and see what it says...
(21-26) With thee is my praise in a great church: I will pay my vows in the sight of them that fear him.
(34-18) I will give thanks to thee in a great church; I will praise thee in a strong people.
(39-10) I have declared thy justice in a great church, lo, I will not restrain my lips: O Lord, thou knowest it.
(88-6) The heavens shall confess thy wonders, O Lord: and thy truth in the church of the saints
go forth from his bed, and the bride out of her bridal chamber.
And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
And if he will not hear them: tell the church. And if he will not hear the church, let him be to thee as the heathen and publican.
Take heed to yourselves and to the whole flock, wherein the Holy Ghost hath placed you bishops, to rule the Church of God which he hath purchased with his own blood.
That he might present it to himself, a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
1 Ti 3:15
But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.
Is any man sick among you? Let him bring in the priests of the church and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.
Then he goes on to sing the same old song about how the Church had no hiearchy until Constantine. Anyone who has ever read any of the writings of the Apostolic Fathers knows that this is absurd. Just read the writings of St. Ignatius written around 90 ad - 200 years before Constantine and see how he discusses the Bishops and their authority!
I truly cannot understand how someone can persist in these same tired and easily exposed lies. Truly they must be blinded by God for their pride and disobedience to Him.

German police cadets in training in Berlin reportedly responded to a talk on anti-Semitism by saying they were bored hearing about the Holocaust.
The incident is under investigation, Deutsche Welle reported. The police academy recruits allegedly also said that Jews are known to be rich.
“If these accusations prove correct, there will be consequences,” said Police President Dieter Glietsch.
Isaak Behar, an 83-year-old Holocaust survivor who gave police cadets an eyewitness account of the Nazi era, said he was satisfied by the school’s response to the cadets.
But some Jewish leaders say that the incident is symptomatic of increasing anti-Semitism.
“A rise in anti-Semitism is apparent everywhere,” Rabbi Andreas Nachama told the Berliner Zeitung. “This is both regrettable and disturbing.”
PRISON FOR HOLOCAUST BOREDOM
Note well: The authority of heretics and schismatics does not come from the Holy Ghost through a visible authority of the Church.....The "authority" of the heretic and schismatic comes from one of two lying sources: from the Devil or from oneself."

Will court employees be charged next? At a meeting of the EU, the Germans advocated making it a crime to disagree with the official holocaust story rather than regard it as freedom of speech.
Read it here. The submissiveness of the Germans would explain how Eisenhower could so easily kill more than a million of them after the war. Did you see the scanned article about his death camp?

"Homophobia Law" to Impact Homilies, Seminaries
BRASILIA, Brazil, MARCH 18, 2007 (Zenit.org).-
Debate continues over so-called homophobia legislation, which seeks to criminalize anything considered a condemnation of homosexuality, including priests who speak against the practice in homilies.
Priests could face two to five years imprisonment for preaching against homosexuality. And a rector of a seminary who refuses admission to a homosexual student could face three to five years.
Thursday, Brazil's Senate declined to vote on the legislation. Instead, the senators decided to form a work group, which will organize public audiences to hear specialists on the subject.
According to ZENIT sources, a number of citizens voiced opposition to the law, motivating in part the senators to form the study group.
Specialists say the "homophobia law" would essentially imply a legal frame for religious persecution.
One source told ZENIT: "In addition to the rights established in the constitution for all people, the homosexual, by the simple fact of being homosexual, would gain privileges."
Maria das Dores Dolly Guimarães, lawyer and president of the Paulist Federation of Movements in Defense of Life, explained: "Whoever dared to criticize such behavior would be treated as a delinquent."

More than 7,000 French Jews have signed a petition asking for political asylum in the United States because of anti-Semitism in France.
"Following the barbarous murder of a young Jew because he was Jewish, in the context of the rise in anti-Semitic acts committed by Islamic fundamentalists, numerous members of the community no longer feel safe in France," reads the petition, which was sent to the U.S. Congress. The reference was to Ilan Halimi, a 23-year-old Parisian Jew who was kidnapped and tortured to death last year by an anti-Semitic gang.
The petition asks Congress to enact a law according refugee status to French Jews. "We believe that the United States, known for its traditional welcome to those under threat in their native lands, must open its doors to us," the petition says.
French communal officials reacted with outrage. "This petition is bizarre, stupid and out of place," Haim Musicant, director of CRIF, the umbrella organization of secular French Jewish groups, told Israel's Ma'ariv newspaper. "I don't feel threatened in France, and the authorities are doing everything they can to protect the Jewish community. French Jews don't need this kind of petition."
Why aren't they petitioning Israel for asylum? Could it be that the "anti-semites" who are attacking them are the same type that guard Zionists as in the thread below? Could it be that these Jews are not Zionists and that they know full well that the "anti-semites" who are attacking them are actually Zionists who benefit from these attacks in gaining sympathy and new laws to hide and protect their crimes?
BERLIN German prosecutors have charged the former attorney for far-right activist Ernst Zundel (ZOON'-dul) with encitement. They accuse her of denying the Holocaust occurred and ending one of her legal filings with the words, "Heil Hitler."Zundel lived in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, between 2001 and 2003, when he was deported to Canada for alleged immigration violations. Canada later sent him back to Germany.
Zundel has operated Samisdat Publishing, a leading distributor of Nazi propaganda, since the 1970s. Over the past decade, he has been a key content provider for a Web site dedicated to Holocaust denial.
The second trial of the 67-year-old Zundle ended last month with his conviction for incitement in denying the Holocaust. He was sentenced to the maximum five years in prison.
Attorney Sylvia Stolz represented Zundel in his first trial, which collapsed after Stolz was banned from proceedings on grounds she was trying to sabotage them.
Stolz does not deny making the statements or writing "Heil Hitler" on the document.
When the state can prosecute the lawyer for defending the accused, then the whole appearance of a fair trial is mere pretense.
The Economist (Britain)
This week saw yet another reminder of the awesome power of "the lobby". The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) brought more than 6,000 activists to Washington for its annual policy conference. And they proceeded to live up to their critics' darkest fears. The lobbyists had every reason to feel proud of their work … Both parties are competing with each other to be the "soundest" on Israel. About two-thirds of Americans hold a favourable view of the place. Yet they have reason to feel a bit nervous, too. The Iraq debacle has produced a fierce backlash against pro-war hawks, of which AIPAC was certainly one. It has also encouraged serious people to ask awkward questions about America's alliance with Israel.
Wouldn't it be nice to have polititions competing to be the "soundest" on the United States of America!
Inside America's Powerful Israel Lobby
Gregory Levey – Salon
At the annual policy conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee this week in Washington, a conservative Christian couple from eastern Tennessee told me that their son had decided to join the Israeli army. It was one of many surreal moments during the three-day gathering hosted by AIPAC, the lobbying group devoted to ensuring close U.S.-Israel ties that remains extraordinarily influential in Washington … “Our commitment to Israel defines us as a nation," said Republican Norm Coleman of Minnesota, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, adding that the AIPAC lobbyists "help make sure that we don't forget."
I thought freedom defined us as a nation - not our commitment to Isreal - think about it - how could our committment to Israel be what defines us as a nation when Israel did not even exist until 1948!
Germany's most threatened Jewish personality has neo-Nazis for bodyguards
Legal authorities in Germany have revealed that a number of the bodyguards who were assigned to protect officials in the Jewish community are neo-Nazi sympathizers.
by Jewsweek Staff
BERLIN -- Legal authorities in Germany have revealed that a number of the bodyguards who were assigned to protect officials in the Jewish community are neo-Nazi sympathizers, Ynetnews reported. The bodyguards' anti-Semitic sentiments have been known for a year but were kept quiet until now.
These bodyguards were responsible for ensuring the safety of Michel Friedman, one of the most threatened personalities in Germany. Friedman no longer holds official positions in the Jewish community, since he resigned following a drug scandal in 2003, but is the former vice-president of the Central Council of Jews in Germany and chairman of the local branch of the United Israel Appeal. Friedman is a lawyer and is famous for his confrontational personality as a TV talk-show host.
The drug scandal gained a lot of attention at the time, especially because many questions were left unanswered. Now sources in the Jewish community question whether Friedman's bodyguards were involved in his incrimination in an effort to end his political career. In the course of police raids that led to the discovery, the investigators were shocked to find a certificate of appreciation "signed" by the Fueher. On another guard's computer, they found the Nazi Party anthem, which is illegal in Germany. They also found a photograph of one of the guards in an SS uniform.
All of these crazy racist groups - the neo-nazi's, the KKK, the NAACP, etc... are all Zionist creations! Do you think for a minute if these "neo-nazis" were truly anti-jewish - Jews would hire them as bodyguards - remember - they were known to be "neo-nazis" for a year!
