County Sheriff Can Bust Big Brother

http://www.keenefreepress.com/mambo/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=439&Itemid=36

Friday, 16 February 2007

The duly elected sheriff of a county is the highest law enforcement official within a county. He has law enforcement powers that exceed that of any other state or federal official.

This is settled law that most people are not aware of.

County sheriffs in Wyoming have scored a big one for the 10th Amendment and states rights. The sheriffs slapped a federal intrusion upside the head and are insisting that all federal law enforcement officers and personnel from federal regulatory agencies must clear all their activity in a Wyoming County with the Sheriff’s Office. Deja vu for those who remember big Richard Mack in Arizona.

Bighorn County Sheriff Dave Mattis spoke at a press conference following a recent U.S. District Court decision (Case No. 2:96-cv-099-J (2006)) and announced that all federal officials are forbidden to enter his county without his prior approval ......

"If a sheriff doesn’t want the Feds in his county he has the constitutional right and power to keep them out, or ask them to leave, or retain them in custody."

The court decision was the result of a suit against both the BATF and the IRS by Mattis and other members of the Wyoming Sheriff’s Association. The suit in the Wyoming federal court district sought restoration of the protections enshrined in the United States Constitution and the Wyoming Constitution.

Guess what? The District Court ruled in favor of the sheriffs. In fact, they stated, Wyoming is a sovereign state and the duly elected sheriff of a county is the highest law enforcement official within a county and has law enforcement powers exceeding that of any other state or federal official." Go back and re-read this quote.

The court confirms and asserts that "the duly elected sheriff of a county is the highest law enforcement official within a county and has law enforcement powers EXCEEDING that of any other state OR federal official." And you thought the 10th Amendment was dead and buried — not in Wyoming, not yet.

But it gets even better. Since the judge stated that the sheriff "has law enforcement powers EXCEEDING that of any other state OR federal official," the Wyoming sheriffs are flexing their muscles. They are demanding access to all BATF files. Why? So as to verify that the agency is not violating provisions of Wyoming law that prohibits the registration of firearms or the keeping of a registry of firearm owners. This would be wrong.

The sheriffs are also demanding that federal agencies immediately cease the seizure of private property and the impoundment of private bank accounts without regard to due process in Wyoming state courts.

Gosh, it makes one wish that the sheriffs of the counties relative to Waco, Texas and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma regarding their jurisdictions were drinking the same water these Wyoming sheriffs are.

Sheriff Mattis said, "I am reacting in response to the actions of federal employees who have attempted to deprive citizens of my county of their privacy, their liberty, and their property without regard to constitutional safeguards. I hope that more sheriffs all across America will join us in protecting their citizens from the illegal activities of the IRS, EPA, BATF, FBI, or any other federal agency that is operating outside the confines of constitutional law. Employees of the IRS and the EPA are no longer welcome in Bighorn County unless they intend to operate in conformance to constitutional law." [Amen].

However, the sad reality is that sheriffs are elected, and that means they are required to be both law enforcement officials and politicians as well. Unfortunately, Wyoming sheriffs are the exception rather than the rule . . . but they shouldn’t be. Sheriffs have enormous power, if or when they choose to use it. I share the hope of Sheriff Mattis that "more sheriffs all across America will join us in protecting their citizens."

If Wyoming Sheriffs can follow in the steps of former Arizona Sheriff Richard Mack and recognize both their power and authority, they could become champions for the memory of Thomas Jefferson who died thinking that he had won those "states’ rights" debates with Alexander Hamilton.This case is not just some amusing mountain melodrama. This is a BIG deal.

This case is yet further evidence that the 10th Amendment is not yet totally dead, or in a complete decay in the United States. It is also significant in that it can, may, and hopefully will be interpreted to mean that "political subdivisions of a State are included within the meaning of the amendment, or that the powers exercised by a sheriff are an extension of those common law powers which the 10th Amendment explicitly reserves to the People, if they are not granted to the federal government or specifically prohibited to the States."

Winston Churchill observed, "If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fights with all the odds against you with only a precarious chance of survival. There may be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is not hope of victory at all, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves."
Obama's "Pastor" gives benediction at Novus Ordo Church!

Obama's pastor makes surprise appearance at Chicago church

Posted: 04:00 PM ET

CHICAGO (AP) — Barack Obama's controversial former pastor got a big round of applause last night during a surprise appearance before a congregation in Chicago.

The Reverend Jeremiah Wright showed up for an event to celebrate poet Maya Angelou's birthday at Saint Sabina Roman Catholic Church.

Video shows the surprised audience giving him a standing ovation.

The pastor of Saint Sabina says he invited Wright because Wright is a fan of Angelou's.

Wright gave the benediction, followed by more applause, and did not speak about the Democratic presidential hopeful.

Wright had canceled several public events following an uproar over incendiary comments about the U.S. and it's historic treatment of blacks.

Obama has condemned Wright's remarks denouncing America for allegedly racist and genocidal acts.

26 And in the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent from God into a city of Galilee, called Nazareth, 27 To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary. 28 And the angel being come in, said unto her: Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. 29 Who having heard, was troubled at his saying, and thought with herself what manner of salutation this should be. 30 And the angel said to her: Fear not, Mary, for thou hast found grace with God.
31 Behold thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and shalt bring forth a son; and thou shalt call his name Jesus. 32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the most High; and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of David his father; and he shall reign in the house of Jacob for ever. 33 And of his kingdom there shall be no end. 34 And Mary said to the angel: How shall this be done, because I know not man? 35 And the angel answering, said to her: The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the most High shall overshadow thee. And therefore also the Holy which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.
36 And behold thy cousin Elizabeth, she also hath conceived a son in her old age; and this is the sixth month with her that is called barren: 37 Because no word shall be impossible with God. 38 And Mary said: Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it done to me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.

“Look, I got two daughters — 9 years old and 6 years old,” he said. “I am going to teach them first about values and morals, but if they make a mistake, I don’t want them punished with a baby. I don’t want them punished with an STD at age 16, so it doesn’t make sense to not give them information.”

3 Behold the inheritance of the Lord are children: the reward, the fruit of the womb. 4 As arrows in the hand of the mighty, so the children of them that have been shaken. 5 Blessed is the man that hath filled the desire with them; he shall not be confounded when he shall speak to his enemies in the gate. Psalm 126: 3-5 DRV

If our Lord's enemies are willing, after their labours of yesterday and their night watching, to cut short their sleep in the early morning in order to persecute Jesus, how acceptable to His loving Heart will be our desire and effort to deny ourselves and rise betimes to do Him a most welcome honour by seeking His sacramental Presence in the Most Blessed Sacrament of the Altar, assisting at the Holy Mass, in which His Sacred Passion is renewed - a most welcome honour, because it gives our dear Lord the opportunity He desires for communicating Himself to us and filling us with benediction.

Two guns used in RFK murder

Now that the "authorities" are admitting this, and the Italian army said that Oswald could not have killed JFK, you can use these articles to put pressure on Sheeple to face the fact that a crime gang is running loose. If the Sheeple don't respond, tell them that studies show cell phones cause brain cancer, so maybe they have a tumor. Notice that the Jews are trying to blame the CIA for the RFK murder. They always Blame the Goys. For 6000 years we've suffered abuse by Jews

EPA Scientists Admit They Are Poisoning/Medicating Tap Water


"The evil of our day is this: that the line of demarcation between Christian and non-Christian, between Christian and heretic, between Christian and idolater, is gradually fading away. The cancer of Liberalism attacks everyone and we must be careful not to be infected ourselves. Those who still call themselves Catholic live, too often, like those who have renounced this title. Women who go to church dress just the way women who do not go to church dress; they read the same books and magazines as these women; they go to the same – often immoral – shows as these women; they no longer pray or do penance. It is a confusion of license and worldliness. As a result of these customs, the Church is beginning to disappear in the world. Christianity is being lost. Only rarely does one find Catholics to whom the following words of Saint Paul can apply: "...be blameless and sincere children of God, without reproof, in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation; among whom you shine as lights in the world". (Phil.2:15). The early Christians stood out among the pagans like shining torches in the dark, and the example of their courage and their virtue attracted the pagans strongly to the Faith. This is something which we do not see today, except in rare cases. Everything is a mish-mash of unrestraint."

Epistle: 1John 5:4-10

4 For whatsoever is born of God, overcometh the world: and this is the victory which overcometh the world, our faith. 5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?
6 This is he that came by water and blood, Jesus Christ: not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit which testifieth, that Christ is the truth. 7 And there are three who give testimony in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost. And these three are one. 8 And there are three that give testimony on earth: the spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three are one. 9 If we receive the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater. For this is the testimony of God, which is greater, because he hath testified of his Son. 10 He that believeth in the Son of God, hath the testimony of God in himself. He that believeth not the Son, maketh him a liar: because he believeth not in the testimony which God hath testified of his Son.


Gospel: John 20:19-31:

19 Now when it was late that same day, the first of the week, and the doors were shut, where the disciples were gathered together, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them: Peace be to you. 20 And when he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. The disciples therefore were glad, when they saw the Lord. 21 He said therefore to them again: Peace be to you. As the Father hath sent me, I also send you. 22 When he had said this, he breathed on them; and he said to them: Receive ye the Holy Ghost. 23 Whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven them; and whose sins you shall retain, they are retained. 24 Now Thomas, one of the twelve, who is called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. 25 The other disciples therefore said to him: We have seen the Lord. But he said to them: Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the place of the nails, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe. 26 And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them. Jesus cometh, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said: Peace be to you. 27 Then he saith to Thomas: Put in thy finger hither, and see my hands; and bring hither thy hand, and put it into my side; and be not faithless, but believing. 28 Thomas answered, and said to him: My Lord, and my God. 29 Jesus saith to him: Because thou hast seen me, Thomas, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and have believed. 30 Many other signs also did Jesus in the sight of his disciples, which are not written in this book.
31 But these are written, that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God: and that believing, you may have life in his name.


The Sunday
Sermon

Dear Friend,

And the doors were shut. And remaining still shut His glorified Body entered by penetration through the doors as He did at His Resurrection. Calvin was the first to deny this against the belief of all the ancient fathers and interpreters who called this a miracle of divine power. The same power which could bring Christ's whole Body entire in all its dimensions through the doors can without the least question make the same Body really present in the Sacrament. Though both the one and the other be above our comprehension.
It is therefore a want of faith to limit the power of Christ by the ordinary rules of place and to deny that He can be in the Blessed Sacrament and on as many altars as He pleases. We do not believe with those who maintain that the humanity of Christ is in every place where His divinity is. This is contrary to faith. But, everywhere Christ's humanity is, there is likewise His divinity.
God is all present. The Sacred Body of Jesus Christ is not all present. Our Lord's presence in the Blessed Sacrament is very different than God's omnipresence.
Though God is everywhere, Jesus Christ's Body is only sacramentally present upon the altars where a true priest consecrates.
Though this is a mystery beyond our comprehension, there are likewise many errors which we must avoid in our belief of this mystery.
Our Lord is truly present in the Blessed Sacrament Body, Blood Soul and Divinity. He is truly God and truly man. Completely God, and completely man. And this presence in the Blessed Sacrament is different than the omnipresence of God. The physical Body of Jesus Christ is really and truly present in our tabernacle. God does see and hear us no matter where we are, but we can only be near Christ in His humanity in the Blessed Sacrament. Not only in this Blessed Sacrament can we come near to our Lord's physical Body to have our petition heard, but our Lord is actually willing and ready to come to us in Holy Communion.
All that our Lord requires of us, to hear our prayer, is that we come in the state of grace and with a contrite heart.
Christ's presence in the Mystical Body of Christ is likewise very different than His presence in the Blessed Eucharist. All true Catholics make up the Mystical Body of Christ and Christ is truly present in this Mystical Body. We must be very cautious to avoid the Modernist interpretation of equating the Mystical Body of Christ with His sacramental presence in the Holy Eucharist.
According to the Council of Trent: "If anyone says that in the holy Sacrament of the Eucharist Christ, the only begotten Son of God is not to be adored with the worship of latria, also outwardly manifested, and is consequently neither to be venerated with a special festive solemnity, nor to be solidly borne about in procession according to the laudable and universal rights and custom of Holy Church, or is not to be set publicly before the people to be adored. And that the adorers thereof are idolaters let him be anathema."

Thus it is clear that we must worship God in the Holy Eucharist. But it would be most inappropriate to worship God, in other human beings. This would surely become idolatry. Though God may live within us, we do not thereby become God. When God becomes present in the holy Eucharist through the mystery which we call transubstantiation, the substance of the bread and wine are no longer present. Only the accidents remain. Christ is truly and substantially present, the bread and wine no longer remain. This cannot be said to take place when Christ lives within us as the Mystical Body of Christ.

Pope Pius XII condemned this in the encyclical Mystici Corporis Christi, June 29, 1943: "There are some who, not sufficiently considering that the Apostle Paul speaks here with terms employed in a figurative sense, and not distinguishing, as it is absolutely necessary to do, the peculiar and proper senses of physical, moral, and mystical body, introduce a false notion of unity, when they make the Divine Redeemer and the members of the Church fuse and coalesce into one physical person; and while they attribute divine attributes to men, they make Christ the Lord subject to error and to a human inclination to evil. It is not only Catholic faith and the teaching of the Fathers which repudiate absolutely this false doctrine, but also the mind and the whole teaching of the Apostle of the Gentiles, who, although he joins Christ and His Mystical Body in a wonderful union of persons, at the same time opposes them one to the other as Spouse and Beloved."

Therefore "the people of God" are not God, and are not to be worshiped as God. It is God who is to be worshiped. Our worship is to be directed toward the God of the people, not toward "the people of God." Just as we must avoid the error of pantheism, so too must we avoid the error of panChristism. We are not all Christ just because Christ may come and dwell within us.

Nearly Half of Catholic Universities Host Pro-Gay Clubs

http://www.citizenlink.org/content/A000006943.cfm

Out of 211 Catholic universities and colleges in the U.S., at least 96 have pro-homosexual clubs on campus. That's according to a study by The American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property (TFP).

Georgetown University, the nation’s oldest Catholic university, plans a new center for homosexual students; the university already has a pro-gay club.

Patrick Reilly, president of the Cardinal Newman Society, said there has been a significant increase in homosexual activism on Catholic campuses recently — even though many still maintain biblical standards.

“These groups tend to celebrate the homosexual lifestyle and promote a social environment that condones homosexual activity,” he told CitizenLink. “That is inconsistent with a Christian university’s responsibility to encourage chastity and students’ moral formation. It would be more appropriate to provide faithful pastoral care for students wrestling with their sexuality.”

Texas Pro-Life Group's Abortion-Breast Cancer Billboard Draws Newspaper's Ire
by Steven Ertelt
LifeNews.com Editor
March 26, 2008



Waco, TX (LifeNews.com) -- A pro-life group in Texas is drawing attention to the Abortion Breast Cancer link and Planned Parenthood's relationship with the Susan G. Komen Foundation with a new billboard that raises serious questions -- and is drawing fire.
Pro-Life Waco has set up a billboard on the 1700 block of Franklin Avenue that poses suggestive questions: "What? An abortion increases my risk for breast cancer? Why does the Komen Race grant $45,000 to Waco's Planned Parenthood abortion provider?"
The billboard also shows a concerned woman and has a pink background –- a color now associated with the breast cancer awareness campaigns largely backed by the Susan G. Komen Foundation, which conducts its annual Race for the Cure on May 3 this year.
The billboard is also visible from the offices of the Waco Tribune-Herald, which has voiced support of Planned Parenthoods policies and agenda in the past.
An editorial in the March 23, 2008 edition of the paper called the billboard's claims "false" and "specious.".........
This group needs to be commended highly for having the courage to put up this billboard!
Food for thought if you still think that the Vatican II Church is Catholic...

I enjoy reading and at any given time am usually in the middle of two or three books and still browse through reference books. The other day I was browsing through Denzinger's Sources of Catholic Dogma and came across the following:

Pope St. Simplicius 468-483
from the epistle "Quantum presbyterorum" to Acacius, Bishop of Constantinople, January 9, 476AD (Council of Arles)

"...I urge, dearest brother, that by every means resistance be offered to the efforts of the perverse to call a synod, which has not always been enjoined in other cases, unless something new arose in distorted minds or something ambiguous in a pronouncement so that, if there were any obscurity, the authority of sacerdotal deliberation might illumine those who were treating the ambiguous pronouncement in common, just as first the impiety of Arius and then that of Nestorius, lastly that of Dioscorus, and also of Eutyches caused this to be done..."

This statement clearly says that a Council (synod) is not to be called unless some doctrine or dogma is being called into doubt or if some pronouncement is not clear in some way and needs to be clarified.

Ask yourself - what dogma or doctrine was being called into doubt at the time of Vatican II? What pronouncement needed to be clarified?

The above epistle says that a Council should only be called to CLARIFY ambiguity. Vatican II CREATED AMBIGUITY in nearly every aspect of the Faith!

Here is another very interesting teaching:

Pope St. Simplicius 468-483
from the epistle "Cuperem quidem" to Basiliscus Augustus, January 10, 476 (Council of Arles)

...Let, whoever, as the Apostle proclaimed, attempts to disseminate something other, than what we have received, be anathema [Gal. 1:8 f.] Let no approach to your ears be thrown open to the pernicious plans of undermining, let no pledge of revising any of the old definitions be granted, because, as it must be repeated very often, what has deserved to be cut away with the sharp edge of the evangelical pruning hook by apostolic hands with the approval of the universal Church, cannot acquire the strength for a rebirth nor is it able to return to the fruitful shoot of the master's vine, because it is evident that it has been destined to eternal fire. Thus, finally, the machinations of all heresies laid down by decree of the Church are never allowed to renew the struggles of their crushed attack."

PLEASE, five what was stated above some serious consideration. There are numerous examples of the Vatican II church and it's "popes" and clergy praising heretics and heretical religions - and most importantly - giving these same heresies rebirth.

Here is one prime example:

From the Joint Declaration with the Lutherans:


JOINT DECLARATION ON THE DOCTRINE OF JUSTIFICATION
Lutheran World Federation and the Catholic Church

http://www.ewtn.com/library/CURIA/pccujnt4.htm

41. Thus the doctrinal condemnations of the 16th century, in so far as they relate to the doctrine of justification, appear in a new light: The teaching of the Lutheran churches presented in this Declaration does not fall under the condemnations from the Council of Trent. The condemnations in the Lutheran Confessions do not apply to the teaching of the Roman Catholic Church presented in this Declaration.

and from:

OFFICIAL COMMON STATEMENT
The Catholic Church and The World Lutheran Federation

http://www.ewtn.com/library/CURIA/pccujnt1.htm

1. On the basis of the agreements reached in the Joint Declaration regarding the doctrine of Justification, the Lutheran World Federation and the Catholic Church declare together: "The understanding of the doctrine of justification set forth in this Declaration shows that a consensus in basic truths of the doctrine of justification exists between Lutherans and Catholics" (JD 40). On the basis of this consensus the Lutheran World Federation and the Catholic Church declare together: "The teaching of the Lutheran churches presented in this Declaration does not fall under the condemnations from the Council of Trent. The condemnations in the Lutheran Confessions do not apply to the teaching of the Roman Catholic Church presented in this Declaration" (JD 41).

For those not familiar with the history of the protestant revolt of the 16th Century - it centered on the Doctrine of Justification. The heretics taught AND STILL TEACH that we are Justified by FAITH ALONE (Sola Fide).

This heresy was condemned by the Council of Trent. The Council condemned every conceivable manifestation of this heresy in several of its Canons.

The above Joint Declaration now says that the Condemnations of the Council of Trent NO LONGER APPLY! Remember - the Lutherans have not changed one thing in what they believe regarding Justification - they still hold to the same condemned doctrines.

The Vatican II Church has given rebirth to this heresy with the Joint Declaration and goes completely against what Pope St. Simplicius taught!

If you don't believe me - visit the EWTN library:

http://www.ewtn.com/library/CURIA/PCCUJNT.HTM

and look at all the documents relating to this heretical Joint Declaration.

The Vatican II Church cannot possibly be the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church!

An Ex-Roman Catholic’s Journey From Darkness To The Light

Published March 26th, 2008
by Editor in Catholicism


Isaiah has posted his wife’s testimony at Joie de Vivre about how the Lord led her from the darkness of apostate Roman Catholicism into the light of the glorious liberty of the children of God:

Being born of Roman Catholic parents into a Roman Catholic family, I was brought up to attend Mass every Sunday morning, dutifully performing special prayers on specific days as mandated by the Church and to not eat meat on Fridays. I vaguely remember my First Communion ceremony where I was dressed up like a young bride and after which I was showered with various gifts which included my first rosary and a multitude of scapular medals and crosses that had all been blessed by a priest. Our house had the ubiquitous altar adorned with statues of Mary and Jesus with pictures of the Sacred Heart or Pope in some other rooms of the house…



If you click on the link Joie de Vivre - you can read this entire sad account.

In this account of this woman's abandonment of Christ and His Church you can see how dishonest these "christians" really are. There is much to discuss in this account - but for now I will just discuss a few points.

She begins with a little family background and then tells how her family got into an argument with the Parish Priest and how her father stopped attending Mass (this shows what a "good catholic" family this really was, but anyway...

Here is the first quote where she states why she stopped attending Mass - and basically abandoned her Faith:

"It was also around this time in my early teens that after every screening of The Ten Commandments, I would head back to my room, look up at the family altar and wonder about the commandment “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image”. I started questioning how my religion could so blatantly disregard this commandment from God. Disillusioned and confused, I stopped attending church and started on my search for any kind of religious truth."

At this point - one must question her honesty on how much of a "Catholic" she really was.

There is no commandment against making graven images. The 10 Commandments as stated by God and has always taught do not include a prohibition against graven images - rather a prohibition against the ADORATION of graven images.

Many protestant sects added the graven image as a 2nd commandment and then combined the ninth and tenth into one.

Without going into great detail about this - just consider the following - if God had prohibited the making of graven images - why would He later have commanded men to make graven images?

Exodus 25:18 - "And you shall make two cherubim of gold (for the Ark of the Covenant)"

Numbers 21:8-9 - The Lord tells Moses to make the bronze serpent.

1 Kings 6:23 - By God's design the temple had engraved cherubim

1 Kings 6:35 - Doors in the temple had Cherubim, flowers and palm trees carved on them

1 Kings 7:25-45 - By God's design the temple had bronze oxen and lions

God can do all things - EXCEPT CONTRADICT HIMSELF - obviously God did not command us not to make graven images - He commanded us not to ADORE THEM! Exodus 20:5

This woman obviously did not even know the 10 Commandments - which makes it unlikely that she received her first Communion in the Catholic Church.


Anyhow - from this point on we know that she, by her own admission - abandoned the Catholic Faith.

Later in the article she states the following:

"The idea of being able to predict one’s future was so enticing that I purchased my own set of tarot cards and did my own readings every night. My dabbling into the Occult went so far so to almost purchasing an Ouija board with my then best friend. I only stopped playing with tarot cards when I perceived to have predicted the break-up with my then boyfriend three months beforehand."

Tarot cards, ouija boards, fortune telling, the occult - are all forbidden by the Catholic Church are are MORTAL SINS and avenues for demonic possession!

She then states the following:

"After junior college, I went on to attend a local polytechnic which is where I met Isaiah, my husband.
Early on in our courtship years, I found out that he was a Christian and my instinctive reaction was “Oh no”. When he found out that I was a Roman Catholic, he started evangelizing to me but by that time, I had developed such a disdain for anything Christian, both the Word of God and any evangelist who attempted to hand me a tract. Despite all my misgivings about Christianity, Isaiah continued to tell me about the Lord’s Second Coming and the Book of Revelation to which I nicknamed him my “Doomsday Prophet”. He even tried to get me to read the Bible but somehow my Roman Catholic upbringing got the better of me and I refused to read it for myself."

HOW DISHONEST CAN THESE PEOPLE BE??

by her own admission she abandoned the Catholic faith as a child - yet now she claims that she was still a Catholic - after abandoning the Faith and entering the Occult? She then claims that it was her Catholicism that prevented her from reading the Bible - come on - as we saw above this woman did not even know the 10 Commandments as all Catholics must - yet she believed that the Catholic Church forbid her from reading the Bible - are these protestants at the Christian Research Net really dumb enough to believe this stuff - or are the complicit in these lies?

Note also the implication that Catholics are not Christians!

Need more proof of this woman's dishonesty - read this quote from her article:

"One particular conversation I recall vividly was how he said he wanted to see me in heaven because he loved me and was worried about my soul. Till this day, I remember my immediate reaction was “What kind of emotional blackmail is this?!” I could not accept the idea that just because I did not believe in his God that I would be heading for hell. My fear and conscience continued to clash throughout our courtship years. In spite of my rejections, he never stopped evangelizing to me but my need to ease my conscience caused me to develop a belief that there was a God but it didn’t matter which God I worshipped. This belief of Universalism did not last long however."

Universalism is condemned by the Catholic Church - in fact the Catholic Church teaches: "Outside the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church, there is no salvation nor the remission of sins." These heretics want to have their cake and eat it too - they attack us saying that we believe only Catholic go to heaven, but here they imply that Catholic teach anyone and everyone can go to heaven!

Here is more:

"I bought books such as the Nag Hammadi and vehemently debated with Christians and Isaiah on the validity of the Bible. I also spent many nights out by myself or with friends drinking and partying and not returning home sometimes. My sinful life almost caused Isaiah and me to get a divorce but we pulled through that dark period in our lives and by God’s grace, grew closer emotionally."

All Condemned by the Catholic Church!

This woman abandoned the Catholic Faith based on a Hollywood movies version of the 10 Commandments! - She then fell into all sorts of evils - Occultism, Alcoholism, Chinese Mysticism, and of late the evangelical fundamentalism heresy - who knows where she will end up.

Outside of the Body of Christ there can be no peace!

It is too bad that the Christian Research Net does not allow comments!



"It's a good symbol of the end of western (aka Christian) civilization."




Wanna guess which synagogue the owners if the "miss bimbo" web-site belong too?
Remember - these are the people that Evangelicals and Novus Ordo "catholics" call the "People of God", the "Chosen People", and "Our Elder Brothers in the Faith"...


Safed chief rabbi calls on state to exact 'revenge' against Arabs
By Nadav Shragai, Jack Khoury, and Yoav Stern, Haaretz Correspondents

http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/968729.html

The chief rabbi of Safed, Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu, is calling on the government to carry out "state-sanctioned revenge" against Arabs in order to, in his words, restore Israel's deterrence.

The Musawa Center for Arab Rights in Israel said it planned to urge the Attorney General to censure Eliyahu over the comments and punish him "at the fullest severity of the law."

In a piece penned for this upcoming weekend's edition of the newsletter "Eretz Yisrael Shelanu," Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu wrote: "It's time to call the child by its name: Revenge, revenge, revenge. We mustn't forget. We have to take horrible revenge for the terrorist attack at Mercaz Harav yeshiva," referring to the incident in which eight students were killed earlier this month...

... In the newsletter, which was distributed to synagogues around the country, Eliyahu proposes "hanging the children of the terrorist who carried out the attack in the Mercaz Harav yeshiva from a tree."...

Israel is already carrying out revenge - calling it collective punishment - in which they will bulldoze down the homes of any and all relatives of a "terrorist" or in some cases entire villages!

Mass indebtedness to foreign nations, and a deepening dependency on foreign goods and borrowings to pay for them. We have sacrificed our country on the altar of this Moloch, the mythical Global Economy.

It is not only in DC that the cops want to go door to door to get guns - Boston is attempting it too...

Police limit searches for guns

http://www.boston.com/news/local/massachusetts/articles/2008/03/25/police_limit_searches_for_guns/

By Maria Cramer
Globe Staff / March 25, 2008

Boston police officials, surprised by intense opposition from residents, have significantly scaled back and delayed the start of a program that would allow officers to go into people's homes and search for guns without a warrant.

The program, dubbed Safe Homes, was supposed to start in December, but has been delayed at least three times because of misgivings in the community. March 1 was the latest missed start date...

This is how it all begins...

Some weeks back, Cecelia and I were discussing this book and the list of 45 goals that the Communist Party had to take over America.
This book was required reading for high schoolers at Our Lady of the Rosary School under Fr. Bernard. I continued this tradition with my own home school high schoolers because it is a very important book in view of what is happening today.
Here is the list of 45 goals - they are ALL complete. You will be amazed:
D.C. Gun Crackdown Meets Community Resistance
Police Ask Residents To Submit To Voluntary Searches

http://www.nbc4.com/news/15688264/detail.html

WASHINGTON -- A crackdown on guns is meeting some resistance in the District.

The program will begin in a couple of weeks in the Washington Highlands neighborhood of southeast Washington and will later expand to other neighborhoods.

Officers will go door to door asking residents for permission to search their homes.

Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier said the "safe homes initiative" is aimed at residents who want to cooperate with police.

She gave the example of parents or grandparents who know or suspect their children have guns in the home...

WOW! You know now that anyone who does not allow a "voluntary" search is going to be a target! And yes - parents, grandparents, and children - turn in your family members!



In 2006, members of the Vatican II sect’s hierarchy visited the Jewish Yeshiva University. There the “cardinals” and bishops wore Yarmulkes as they were instructed by Jews who are dedicated to the Talmud. (The pictures can also be seen here.)
Visit the link below and look at the ad that Pro life Wisconsin tried to run in various college newspapers, including Marquette University - a supposedly Catholic University.

http://mcadams.posc.mu.edu/blog/Spring%20Break%20Ad_Tribune_Marquette.pdf

In response to Wisconsin college campuses that have promoted so-called “emergency contraception” to students, urging them to “prepare” for spring break by stocking up on the medication, Pro-Life Wisconsin placed its own ads to educate students about the dangers of EC.

The responses from three newspapers demonstrate that college student newspapers are not always the bastions of free speech they pride themselves on being. Three newspapers rejected the ad - the Marquette University Tribune, the UW-Stout Stoutonia and the UW-La Crosse Racquet. The Tribune objected to the words “chemical abortion,” while a representative from the Stoutonia stated, “We try to stay away from controversial subjects.”

How nice that a "catholic" university would reject a truthful pro-life advertisement.

“He who neglects the service of the Blessed Virgin will die in his sins. He who does not invoke thee, O Lady, will never get to heaven. Not only will those from whom Mary turns away her eyes of mercy not be saved, but there will be no hope of their salvation. No one can be saved without the protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary.”




St. Bonaventure (+1260)

No matter where we look, no matter how we strive,
if we wander far from God, we will not enjoy nature's tranquility,
nor harmony and peace of soul. We will be restless and harassed,
as though tossed by fever.

Milwaukee newspaper promotes homo-sex play on Good Friday
Protests planned following advertisement for 'Res-erection'

A host for a Milwaukee-based radio talk show, Crosstalk America, says she will be leading a protest against the city's local newspaper, the Journal Sentinel for publishing on Good Friday an advertisement for an explicit sex show being highlighted as part of "The Res-erection" tour.
The advertisement is for "Puppetry of the P----," which is to appear next month at the city's Miramar theater. The ad features two men, partly in silhouette, who appear to be nude, and whose privates are covered by "The Res-erection Tour!" slogan.


http://worldnetdaily.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=59575

It just so happens that our subscription for the Journal is up for renewal so I fired off an email to Ms. Brenner and told her that we will NOT be renewing since she offended not only Our Lord but also our intelligence by telling us that there is no Easter connection at all. They’re happy to run ads like this any time!

I saw the ad and it was appalling!! This is one time that I join with our heretical friends to fight this evil in Milwaukee! I suspect their phone lines and their emails are melting down right about now and this talk show host said she will not quit until they print a large retraction and apology to the Christian community. Fat chance! I apologize for printing the above and hope I haven't offended any of you but you won't get it unless you know exactly what it said.

Here is the Journal Sentinel President's email:

ORGAN DONATION...

Man Declared Dead Feels 'Pretty Good'


http://www.comcast.net/news/articles/odd/2008/03/24/Not.Dead/

Mon Mar 24, 10:09 AM EDT


Four months after he was declared brain dead and doctors were about to remove his organs for transplant, Zach Dunlap says he feels "pretty good."

Dunlap was pronounced dead Nov. 19 at United Regional Healthcare System in Wichita Falls, Texas, after he was injured in an all-terrain vehicle accident. His family approved having his organs harvested.


As family members were paying their last respects, he moved his foot and hand. He reacted to a pocketknife scraped across his foot and to pressure applied under a fingernail. After 48 days in the hospital, he was allowed to return home, where he continues to work on his recovery.

On Monday, he and his family were in New York, appearing on NBC's "Today."

"I feel pretty good. but it's just hard ... just ain't got the patience," Dunlap told NBC.

Dunlap, 21, of Frederick, said he has no recollection of the crash.


"I remember a little bit that was about an hour before the accident happened. But then about six hours before that, I remember," he said.

Dunlap said one thing he does remember is hearing the doctors pronounce him dead.


"I'm glad I couldn't get up and do what I wanted to do," he said.

Asked if he would have wanted to get up and shake them and say he's alive, Dunlap responded: "Probably would have been a broken window that went out."


His father, Doug, said he saw the results of the brain scan.

"There was no activity at all, no blood flow at all."


Zach's mother, Pam, said that when she discovered he was still alive, "That was the most miraculous feeling."

"We had gone, like I said, from the lowest possible emotion that a parent could feel to the top of the mountains again," she said.


She said her son is doing "amazingly well," but still has problems with his memory as his brain heals from the traumatic injury.

"It may take a year or more ... before he completely recovers," she said. "But that's OK. It doesn't matter how long it takes. We're just all so thankful and blessed that we have him here."


Dunlap now has the pocketknife that was scraped across his foot, causing the first reaction.
"Just makes me thankful, makes me thankful that they didn't give up," he said. "Only the good die young, so I didn't go."

I saw part of this interview on the Today Show - and the blatantly obvious question was not asked - what about all the other "brain dead" donors?

There was also a segment about vaccines on the same program - in this segment they stated that non vaccinated children were a threat to vaccinated children - again - no one asked the obvious question: If vaccines work - how is a child that is not vaccinated a threat to a child that is vaccinated?

Anyhow - back to the organ donation - had this man's family not noticed his reactions to stimuli - this man would have been brutally murdered on an operating table "giving the gift of life" - as his organs were ripped from his living body one at a time until they cut his beating heart out!

VITAL ORGAN DONATION IS BRUTAL MURDER FOR PROFIT!

Catholic Sacramental Theology Prescribes
That for Validity Water Must Be Poured upon the Skin of the Head

According to Catholic Sacramental principles of 2000 years, the water of Baptism must be poured upon the skin of the head, essentially upon the forehead, in order that the Sacrament be valid. Baptism is invalid if water is not poured upon the skin. Priests traditionally were trained how to administer the Sacrament validly, as the consequences of invalidity are so severe. However, it seems that after Vatican II, even popes seem to have forgotten how to baptize validly. JPII commonly administered Baptisms doubtfully in this way, and so does Benedict-Ratzinger.
For validity, the water must be poured upon the skin. Pouring water on the clothes or the hair is invalid. JPII and Benedict-Ratzinger have many times been seen to baptize with water on the hair at the back of the head. Did the water touch the skin? Maybe. Maybe not. Were these people validly baptized by the pope? Maybe. Maybe not. It is a sad day for the Church when even purported popes no longer know how to baptize validly!

Faked Shoah Memoir Sparks Concerns

In the wake of the recent disclosure by the author of a Holocaust memoir that her best-selling book is a fake, historians are worried that such incidents will cast doubt on legitimate Holocaust scholarship and memoirs...


If this were only one hoax, one could shrug ones shoulders and say, "Hey., no big deal."

But the problem is that this latest fake is just the most recent in a long line of fake books purporting to be first hand accounts of the orthodox version of the history of WW2.

Yes, common sense says that if large numbers pf the books being held aloft to "prove" the orthodox view are exposed as frauds, there is a credibility problem with the whole story. Michael Rivero

French official sacked for anti-Israeli diatribe

http://afp.google.com/article/ALeqM5jZ_PXnzO3GRKPwy9Uv3KiEWz6jRQ

PARIS (AFP) — A French senior civil servant has been sacked for publishing a violent anti-Israeli diatribe on a web site, the interior ministry said.


Bruno Guigue, deputy prefect of the southwestern town of Saintes, wrote in an online column this month that Israel was "the only state where snipers shoot down little girls outside their school gates."

The author of several books on the Israli-Palestinian conflict, Guigue wrote of the "Israeli jails where -- thanks to religious law -- they stop torturing on the Sabbath."


Interior Minister Michele Alliot-Marie dismissed the official after learning of the column on Wednesday, the ministry said.

13 And behold, two of them went, the same day, to a town which was sixty furlongs from Jerusalem, named Emmaus. 14 And they talked together of all these things which had happened. 15 And it came to pass, that while they talked and reasoned with themselves, Jesus himself also drawing near, went with them.
16 But their eyes were held, that they should not know him. 17 And he said to them: What are these discourses that you hold one with another as you walk, and are sad? 18 And the one of them, whose name was Cleophas, answering, said to him: Art thou only a stranger to Jerusalem, and hast not known the things that have been done there in these days? 19 To whom he said: What things? And they said: Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, who was a prophet, mighty in work and word before God and all the people; 20 And how our chief priests and princes delivered him to be condemned to death, and crucified him.
21 But we hoped, that it was he that should have redeemed Israel: and now besides all this, today is the third day since these things were done. 22 Yea and certain women also of our company affrighted us, who before it was light, were at the sepulchre, 23 And not finding his body, came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, who say that he is alive. 24 And some of our people went to the sepulchre, and found it so as the women had said, but him they found not. 25 Then he said to them: O foolish, and slow of heart to believe in all things which the prophets have spoken.
26 Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and so to enter into his glory? 27 And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded to them in all the scriptures, the things that were concerning him. 28 And they drew night to the town, whither they were going: and he made as though he would go farther. 29 But they constrained him; saying: Stay with us, because it is towards evening, and the day is now far spent. And he went in with them. 30 And it came to pass, whilst he was at table with them, he took bread, and blessed, and brake, and gave to them.
31 And their eyes were opened, and they knew him: and he vanished out of their sight. 32 And they said one to the other: Was not our heart burning within us, whilst he spoke in this way, and opened to us the scriptures? 33 And rising up, the same hour, they went back to Jerusalem: and they found the eleven gathered together, and those that were staying with them, 34 Saying: The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon. 35 And they told what things were done in the way; and how they knew him in the breaking of the bread.

Abortionist Tiller Admits to Performing Abortions the Day Before Delivery
His Speech at National Education Association
By John-Henry Westen
ARLINGTON, VA, March 19, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Notorious partial-birth abortion specialist Dr. George Tiller of Wichita, KS, was caught on hidden video admitting to aborting babies a day before the mother's due date. Students for Life of America (SFLA) today released the video which was made at the Feminist Majority Foundation's annual Women's Leadership Conference held at the National Education Association (NEA) on March 9. The video reveals Dr. Tiller showcasing massive and graphic pictures of children with fetal abnormalities that he had aborted, so as to make the case for late-term abortions as necessary medical procedure. SFLA's Executive Director Kristan Hawkins, who videotaped the conference and interviewed Tiller clandestinely, commented on the gruesome pictures of aborted children Tiller showed, saying, "One had an extra arm: could not that child had survived and received corrective surgery? Was violently killing the child the only way to go?""Pro-lifers are regularly condemned for displaying pictures of aborted babies, but here the pro-abortion crowd and the NEA are more than happy to showcase these graphic images, and even gave Dr. Tiller's presentation a standing ovation," added Hawkins........................

Epistle: 1Corinthians 5:7-8:
7 Purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new paste, as you are unleavened. For Christ our pasch is sacrificed. 8 Therefore let us feast, not with the old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
Gospel: Mark 16:1-7
1 And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalen, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, bought sweet spices, that coming, they might anoint Jesus. 2 And very early in the morning, the first day of the week, they come to the sepulchre, the sun being now risen. 3 And they said one to another: Who shall roll us back the stone from the door of the sepulchre? 4 And looking, they saw the stone rolled back. For it was very great. 5 And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed with a white robe: and they were astonished. 6 Who saith to them: Be not affrighted; you seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified: he is risen, he is not here, behold the place where they laid him. 7 But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he goeth before you into Galilee; there you shall see him, as he told you.

The Sunday
Sermon

Dear Friend,
The foundation of the Faith rests upon the fact of Christ's resurrection. St. Paul in the first letter to the Corinthians says: "If Christ be not risen again, your faith is vain, for you are yet in your sins. Then they also who have slept in Christ have perished."

Christ did rise from the dead and this has been attested to by His own disciples and the apostles. Even the enemies of Christ have been forced to attest to the truth of His resurrection.

His resurrection is different from the dead that Christ brought back to life (The youth of Naim, the daughter of Jairus, and Lazarus.). Christ was not brought back to life He returned life to His own Body by His own power, proving beyond doubt that He is God. He expressed this truth when He said: "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up." (St. John 2: 19.) And again: "I lay down My life, that I may take it again. No man taketh it away from Me, but I lay it down of Myself, and I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it up again." (St. John 10: 17,18),

When St. Paul says: "God the Father, who raised him (the Son) from the dead" (Gal 1:1.) we must understand that this is not a denial of Christ rising of His own power. The Son is of the same essence with the Father. The divine power by which the Son raised Himself from the dead may be called the power of the Father, and consequently the raising of Jesus Christ is a work of the Father because They are One.

Christ rose with a glorious body. The sacred body of Christ was the same as before the Resurrection, but it was now in a more glorious state than before,. A wonderful transformation in the body of Jesus took place on Mount Thabor: "His face did shine as the sun, and His garments became white as snow." (Matt. 17: 2.) This transfiguration of Christ, which upon Thabor was only transient and partial, after His Resurrection became permanent and general; not only His face, but His whole body was diffusing a much brighter and more resplendent sparkling light than the noonday sun. If in His apparitions He had not suppressed the rays which ever streamed forth from His glorified body the disciples would not have been able to endure the sight.

After His Resurrection He was no longer susceptible of any painful sensation. Before His Resurrection His body was mortal, He could die a natural, a painful death; after it His body was immortal; as He could no longer suffer, so He could die no more. Therefore the Apostle writes: "We know that Christ, rising again from the dead, dieth now no more; death shall no more have dominion over Him." (Rom. 6: 9).

The body of Christ is no longer confined by space and time, being without weight or heaviness. No time was needed to go to any place, It could pass in a moment through the immense space of creation and be at any spot It wished.

The body of Christ remained after His Resurrection a true body, but It laid aside all density, so that, like a pure spirit, It could penetrate everywhere and render Itself invisible to the eyes of men.

The bodies of the just will possess these same qualities, only in a less degree, when they rise from the dead. This should be a powerful incentive for us to hold our body and its senses in honor, and to employ them for the service of God.

The apostles and disciples gave testimony of Christ's resurrection before Jews and Gentiles, before the high and the low, the learned and the unlearned, friends and enemies, and not only occasionally, but they continually referred to it and made it the foundation of Christianity. These men were not deceived nor could they deceive others.

Let us rejoice over this most important and consoling mystery of our holy religion, upon which rest our faith and hope, and profit by it, so that at this holy time of Easter we may celebrate our spiritual resurrection. Let us remain no longer in the grave of sin, of inordinate inclinations and passions. Let us come forth by a true conversion to God; walk in the life of grace, and "seek the things that are above, where Christ is sitting at the right hand of God." (Col. 3: 1)

Look at the review on the link below for Apocalypto

http://movies.yahoo.com/feature/10mosthistoricallyinaccurate.html

here is the quote:

Apocalypto
This one movie has given entire Anthropology departments migranes. Sure the Maya did have the odd human sacrifice but not to Kulkulkan, the Sun God, and only high-ranking captives taken in battle were killed. The conquistadors arriving at the end of the film made for unlikely saviors: an estimated 90% of indigenous American population was killed by smallpox from the infected Spanish pigs.


AS for the idea that they Myans only sacrificed high ranking captives taken in battle - consider the following articles - which are also biased against the Spanish...

http://www.livescience.com/history/human_sacrifice_050123.html

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/6853177/

Note the horrible bias against the Spanish in both these articles and in the review - i mean - come on - "Spanish Pigs" - I wonder if approvedworkman wrote that stupid review.

Remember - the Hispanics are the result of the Spanish marrying the natives and educating and converting them - why do you think that the vast majority of Hispanics are or were Catholic?

Contrast this against the protestants who came to North America - did they intermarry, did they educate and covert the natives that they encountered?

The Spanish UNINTENTIONALLY gave diseases to the natives - that is true - they did not know that they were doing this and did not will to do this.

Consider that there are documented accounts of protestants bringing small pox infected blankets to the natives as gifts in the first documented accounts of germ warfare!

who are the real pigs?

I am not trying to promote the movie Apocalypto - but I am trying to illustrate the anti-catholic hatred that exists in the mass media today!
