America Chooses…



From today’s Liturgy of the Hours:

Psalm 84 (85)
Our salvation is very near

Lord, you blessed your land; you forgave the guilt of your people.

O Lord, you once favoured your land
and revived the fortunes of Jacob,
you forgave the guilt of your people
and covered all their sins.
You averted all your rage,
you calmed the heat of your anger.

Revive us now, God, our helper!
Put an end to your grievance against us.
Will you be angry with us for ever,
will your anger never cease?

Will you not restore again our life
that your people may rejoice in you?
Let us see, O Lord, your mercy
and give us your saving help.

I will hear what the Lord God has to say,
a voice that speaks of peace,
peace for his people and his friends
and those who turn to him in their hearts.
His help is near for those who fear him
and his glory will dwell in our land.

Mercy and faithfulness have met;
justice and peace have embraced.
Faithfulness shall spring from the earth
and justice look down from heaven.

The Lord will make us prosper
and our earth shall yield its fruit.
Justice shall march before him
and peace shall follow his steps.

Glory to the Father and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now,
and will be for ever. Amen.

Lord, you blessed your land; you forgave the guilt of your people.


For Judeo-Christian values and for the Constitution of the United States

You are reading this because nobody killed you while you were an embryo.

A pro-life vote in this election is a vote for human rights.  Unborn children have the right to life, and African-American babies have the right NOT to be selectively destroyed.   77%   of  African-American pregnancies are aborted right now, and African-American babies are three times more likely to be aborted than white babies.  Since Roe v. Wade in 1973, the black population in the U.S.has been reduced by over 25 percent( ref).

A nation which cares about 4,295 combat deaths (~430 per year) in the War on Terror , and cares about 40,000 motor vehicle deaths per year, should also care about  1 Million infant deaths by abortion per year.

For those who are hard-hearted enough to advocate     1 million yearly infant deaths for the sake of a promiscuous lifestyle without consequence– consider, too, the financial repercussions.  The tax dollar contributions, as well as social security contributions that would be made by the  45 million Americans who are missing  since Roe v. Wade, would be staggering.

The argument that unaborted babies would be a burden on society (given the racial abortion statistics quoted above) borders on racism.  Generally, the birth of a baby transforms people of any color into more mature, caring and motivated individuals who become an asset to society.

Pro-abortion arguments such as rape or incest are attempts to sensationalize the issue, and to circumvent the real ethical questions.  Rape and incest actually represent only 1% of abortions, and are introduced to distract from the fundamental moral issue.  Planned Parenthood actually often helps molesters and rapists to hide their crimes, by assisting them with abortion and failing to report their crimes.

Many don’t seem to realize that each embryo IS actually a new and unique human person, as important and valuable as we all are.  Size or age does not diminish the value of any human being.

This irreplaceable value of each human life  is at the heart of moral teachings and respect for human life, and is essential for the healthy and balanced survival of human society.

The ethical questions behind pro-life issues cannot be so trivially dismissed as some attempt to do by masquerading murder under the banner of “pro-choice.”

Whose choice?  Certainly not the unborn child’s choice!

Madison, vote Pro-Life!  In this election, that means vote Republican.

STD’s ……..


UW–Madison tribute to academic freedom (Bascom Hall)

Since my kids’ recent graduation from UW Madison, I have great affection and concern for the well-being of the remaining 40,000 young souls trudging around our hometown campus every day.  As they heft their backpacks across miles of campus in search of learning and wisdom, it is my hope that this liberal campus does not succeed in excluding millenia of cumulative Judeo-Christian wisdom from consideration, in the sifting and winnowing process that UW Madison boasts of at Bascom Hall.

Finding some articles which promoted promiscuity and pornography to new students in the local student paper this fall  (authored by a “sexual health educator”), one of my back-to-school projects is to begin refuting those misleading and widespread articles with some truths.

The articles I found completely disregard the health implications of promiscuous behavior, which can have life-changing implications for students.  Regarding sexually transmitted diseases (STD’s), the subject of this post, I came across some pretty interesting information —

  • 25% of all college students have STD’s, and 65% of all STD’s occur in people under the age of 25.
  • For an idea of what kind of life you can expect with STD’s, see this Oprah YouTube , 10/7/2010:
    [pro-player width=’560′ height=’340′ type=’video’][/pro-player]

. (The Oprah YouTube has been removed.  See transcript of this Oprah segment.)

  • Regarding using “protection” – the use of condoms results in only 85% prevention of either pregnancy or STDs, including HIV.  That means that 1 woman out of 7 will be pregnant within one year, and a comparable, paltry 85% reduction in HIV infection can be expected.

To college students — is this the type of gamble you would like to take with your life and with your future?

This is what the Church, your parents, and “religious people” are trying to protect you from.  God invented knowledge, wisdom and love.  Since liberal UW Madison will not teach you God’s brand of wisdom, research it on your own.

Rosary for the Bishop is one of my favorite cultural war weapons !

“The Heart open to God, purified by contemplation of God, is stronger than guns and weapons of every kind.”
