ISIS forcing abortions on Yazidi women.

Cecile Richards actually cracked a smile . . . 

. . . and Planned Parenthood calls it medical services.

crazy muslimsKind of reminds me of the complaints by the children of Israel about getting manna.  “We want meat!” they cried.  God said, “You want meat; I’ll give you meat.  Until it comes out your nose, I’ll give it.”

“America, you love abortion so much!  I’ll give it to you until you can’t even cry anymore.”

ISIS militants forced pregnant women they had sold into slavery to have abortions, according to three young Yazidis who escaped from the Islamic militants’ brutal clutches.

After abducting hundreds of young women and girls from their homes in Iraq’s Sinjar province last August, ISIS fighters rounded the captives up in “slave markets” where they were picked out to be used for sex.

The terror group was so intent on using rape as a weapon of war that they brought in their own doctors — gynaecologists — to determine which of the women they had captured were virgins.

Bushra, 21, says she witnessed two doctors invasively examine girls to find out if they were already pregnant. Those found to be expecting were forced to abort their babies.

“One of my friends was pregnant,” Bushra recalls. “Her child was about three months in the womb. They took her into another room. There were two doctors and they did the abortion.

Weird. Amazing. Surviving a grizzly bear attack.

I know if I’m ever attacked by a grizzly bear, the first thing I’ll think of is a magazine article I read when I was a kid.

I guess it ain’t braggin’ if you can do it.

This story from the Great Falls Tribune is simply wild, in every sense of the word:

Simply stick your right arm in here.

GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) — A Montana bow hunter is recovering after he survived a grizzly bear mauling by remembering a tip from his grandmother and shoving his arm down the animal’s throat.

Chase Dellwo, 26, was hunting with his brother northwest of the town of Choteau on Saturday when he came face-to-face with a 350- to 400-pound male grizzly.

Dellwo was walking up a creek bed, hoping to drive a herd of elk to a ridge where his brother was waiting. He was only 3 feet from the bear when he noticed it. He said the grizzly had been sleeping and didn’t see him coming, possibly because of the snow, rain and 30 to 40 mph winds.

Dellwo said he only had time to take a few steps back before the bear knocked him off his feet and bit his head.  “He let go, but he was still on top of me roaring the loudest roar I have ever heard,” Dellwo said.

The bear then bit Dellwo’s leg and shook him, tossing him in the air. As the bear came at the man again, Dellwo recalled a story he read in a magazine.  “I remembered an article that my grandmother gave me a long time ago that said large animals have bad gag reflexes,” he said. “So I shoved my right arm down his throat.”

The advice worked, and the bear left.

Dellwo rejoined his brother, who drove him to a hospital. Dellwo received stitches and staples in his head, some on his face, a swollen eye and deep puncture wounds on his leg.

“I want everyone to know that it wasn’t the bear’s fault. He was as scared as I was,” Dellwo said.

OK.  I’m totally fine with hunting, but “snow, rain, and 30 to 40 mph winds?”  And exactly what comfort are we to draw from the notion that “it wasn’t the bear’s fault.”  At the risk of being some sort of a Monday morning quarterback, I gotta disagree: the bear could not have been as scared as you were.  Bears are not the only animal to poop in the woods.

Just sayin’.

Sodom, Gomorrah, and America

Who knows, God may relent and forgive,

and withhold his blazing wrath, so that we shall not perish.”

When God saw by their actions how they turned from their evil way,

he repented of the evil that he had threatened to do to them;

he did not carry it out.  Jonah 3:10

At least someone sees what is at stake.

The county commission in Blount County, Tennessee is planning on petitioning God’s mercy.  Of course, CNN is trying to make them out to be a bunch of wack jobs.  Nothing new there.  And then there’s the obligatory reference to “tolerance” and a self-styled activist group’s call to arms or limp wrists or something.

I understand how those with any sense of history and a healthy fear of God would make a public proclamation – there’s plenty of historical precedent for that one.  What I don’t get is why those who deny God and all that He says would do anything.

I mean, God is either real, who He says He is or He’s not.  If He is real, seems like the Sodomites have some real trouble on their hands.  If He’s just the mayor of Fantasy Island as they assert, why stop smoking pot long enough to go to a commission meeting?

Just asking.

The Blount County Commission has a full agenda planned at its meeting tonight: Deal with budget issues. Restructure committees. Approve a resolution condemning judicial tyranny.

And petition God’s mercy.

Apparently some in Blount — a county of 122,00 people, just south of Knoxville — still aren’t happy about the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling this summer that legalized same sex marriage nationwide.

So, Commissioner Karen Miller has sponsored a resolution that both slams the Supreme Court and begs for God to spare the county when He eventually, goes the reasoning of the resolution, destroys America over same sex marriage.

Forced to do it

“We adopt this Resolution before God that He pass us by in His Coming Wrath and not destroy our County as He did Sodom and Gomorrah and the neighboring cities,” Miller’s proposal reads.

Apparently no one in Blount County government is going the Kim Davis route and actively trying to stop same-sex marriages from taking place. But the resolution makes clear that some in the county feel they’re being forced to go along with something that’s sinful.

“We adopt this Resolution begging His favor in light of the fact that we have been forced to comply and recognize that the State of Tennessee, like so many other God-fearing States, may have fallen prey to a lawless judiciary in legalizing what God and the Bible expressly forbids” states the resolution.

St. Catherine’s prescience.

“Most Holy Father,… because He [Christ] has given you authority and because you have accepted it, you ought to use your virtue and power. If you do not wish to use it, it might be better for you to resign what you have accepted; it would give more honor to God and health to your soul…. If you do not do this, you will be censured by God. If I were you, I would fear that Divine Judgment might descend on me…Alas, Most Holy Father! At times obedience to you leads to eternal damnation.” (St. Catherine of Siena in a letter to Pope Gregory XI).

Stay Married.

This is powerful.

I have been thinking lately about marriage and annulments, and our Lord’s command that we should go forth to seek the one lost sheep that has wandered in the desert, far from the ninety-nine. I believe in that command with all my heart, because I’ve been that lost sheep.

But what happens if it is through our own negligence or disobedience that the sheep is lost? Does the hireling go after the one lost sheep, because that is easier than to shore up the pen-fold that he has allowed to fall into disrepair? Does he go a-singing through the countryside, while the wolf comes prowling? And when he returns with that one bleating and blockheaded sheep, does he bother to count the sheep remaining? Does he even notice the blood and the entrails smeared on the broken post?

There was a child who had a mother and a father. They had promised to love one another and be true to one another until death alone should part them. They were not feeble minded; they knew what the words of the promise meant. And the boy was happy.

This just in from the Congregation for Mixed Messages

For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace,

as in all churches of the saints.

I Corinthians 14:33

Monsignor Krzystof Charamsa smiles as he leaves at …The Vatican on Saturday dismissed a gay priest from his Holy See job on the eve of a major Church meeting for a highly public coming out that challenged the Roman Catholic teaching that homosexual acts are a sin.

Monsignor Krzysztof Charamsa, a Polish theologian, had worked at the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith, the Vatican’s doctrinal arm, since 2003. He was also sacked from his jobs teaching theology at pontifical universities in Rome.

Charamsa, 43, told Italy’s Corriere della Sera newspaper that he was gay and had a partner in an interview published on Saturday. The Church does not consider homosexuality a sin but priests, whether heterosexual or gay, are meant to be celibate.

Charasma also held a news conference with his partner and gay activists at a Rome restaurant. They had planned a demonstration in front of the Vatican but changed the venue several hours before it was due to have started.

The Vatican said the dismissal had nothing to do with Charasma’s reflections on his personal life, which it said “merit respect”.

What does the fact that he worked at the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith since 2003 tell you!  And he’s been teaching theology.  Bet those classes were simply fabulous.

This active sodomite did not just wake up last week and say, “heck, screw my vows, I’m going to hook up with a receptacle/partner and call a press conference so I can make ‘an enormous noise for the good of the Church.'”  And no one else in the CDF had a clue?  Right.

Can someone tell me exactly what about this disingenuous, vow breaking, sodomite deviant’s personal life “merits respect”?

Friends don’t let friends . . . go to hell.

The least charitable thing you can do (or be) to someone is to be indifferent to them.  A popular slogan was that “Friends don’t let friends drive drunk.”  Implicit in this phrase is the presupposition that if you really care about someone you will intervene to stop them from reckless behavior that endangers them and others.

I realize that mainstream news does not sit in a chair of infallibility – especially when various news outlets have an agenda of their own.  Nonetheless, it has been reported that while in the United States, Pope Francis met with a long time friend of his from Argentina.  No problem there, except:

Yayo Grassi, an openly gay man from Francis’ native Argentina and longtime friend of the pontiff, told CNN on Friday that he was that former student. Grassi, who has been in a same-sex relationship for 19 years, said he brought his partner and several friends to the Vatican Embassy in Washington for a brief visit.

Grassi told the broadcaster that Francis has long known he is gay but never condemned his sexuality or relationship. Grassi said he and his partner had previously met with the pope in Rome. “He has never been judgmental,” Grassi told CNN. “He has never said anything negative.”

I also understand that these statements are open to lots of speculation and filling-in-the-blanks.  But taking Mr. Grassi’s at his word, are these Papal actions (or inactions) those of a friend who presumably believes the Truth that he has been chosen to promote and protect?

Souls dropping into hellYears ago, I was visiting a country in Central America.  Someone traveling with me was literally walking on the crumbling rim of an active volcano.  No kidding.  When I saw him in peril – one he seemed oblivious to – I simply shrugged my shoulders and said, “Ehh.  What can you do?”

Actually, that’s not what I did at all.  And you would rightly think ill of me if I had.  Rather, I spoke at maximum volume and used a tone and language, well, let’s just say it was consistent with the proximity of danger.

Which course – the one I didn’t take; or the one I did – was loving my neighbor?

Netanyahu speaks volumes by his silence

Now, close your eyes and try to imagine Obama doing that.

I know, I couldn’t either.

In fact, we asked Secretary of State John Kerry what he thought of Obama’s speech at the U.N.

I know.  Me too.

Planned Parenthood, funding, and missing the point.

Undercover videos, Congressional hearings, Planned Parenthood talking heads (most of whom seem to be employed by CNN).  No wonder so many have been so distracted and so disturbed at the same time.

The Center for Medical Progress has done a masterful job.  They did their homework and executed, as far as I can tell, near flawlessly.  I can only hope that this has the same effect on Planned Parenthood that another undercover video expose’ had on ACORN.

Unfortunately, the truth and the real issues have been obscured.  Politicians, no surprisingly, bear part of the blame.  Many GOP Congressmen and Senators continue their cowardly, grandstanding sashay in front of their prolife constituents, yet do nothing to, at the very least, stop giving tax money to the world’s largest provider of abortion.  John McCormack over at  The Weekly Standard notes that this Congressional song and dance is exactly how to NOT make Planned Parenthood squirm.

Elected officials usually see the light only after they feel the heat.  Here are some talking points that you might like to use to help your elected officials see the light:

  • Debating how much Planned Parenthood actually charges for the baby parts that they are selling is analogous to discussing whether they are whores, prostitutes, or call girls.  The fact is, they are breaking the law.  Defund Planned Parenthood.  Now.  Completely.  Use the money to launch a criminal investigation.
  • Most of the Congressional hearing missed the point.  Completely.  But I would have loved to have been one of those congress-critters for just a couple of minutes: “Ms. Richards, you are here among other things to help preserve the half a billion dollars that we have stolen from U.S. Taxpayers and given to Planned Parenthood.  You have regaled us with the litany of the many, non-human-life-ending services that Planned Parenthood offers.  My question for you is if your organization ceased from this point forward to get a dime of hard working American’s money, tell me which of the following would you cease to do:  1) Continue to collect your $800,000.00 salary (plus benefits); 2) Continue to charter private jets and fly first class for yourself and other Planned Parenthood executives; 3) Continue to divert millions of dollars to your connected PAC and other political activities; 4) Continue to send millions of dollars to foreign entities; or 5) Continue to provide these non-abortion medical services to the poor and disadvantaged that you represent to this Committee you care so much about?  Oh, and since you’ve already told us that Planned Parenthood doesn’t have any mammogram machines, you can’t cut that out.”
  • “No federal funds are used by Planned Parenthood to perform abortions.”  Two words: First one, BULL!  Does this nonsense ever work in any other context.  We, the taxpayers, are forced to put $500,000,000.00 (that 1/2 a billion dollars for government school graduates) into Planned Parenthood’s left pocket.  They promise – honest injun’ – to only pay for abortions out of their right pocket.
  • Abortion is Planned Parenthood’s business.  They have no mammogram machines.  Abortion is why they exist.  Don’t believe me, ask their founder Margaret Sanger.  Oh, wait, you can’t.  She’s in hell.  She called Black people “human weeds” among other niceties, who needed to be exterminated.  There’s a reason PP largest facilities are in minority neighborhoods.  It’s called Eugenics, which is a nice word for Genocide.
  • The CMP videos are not doctored.  First, CMP has put the full videos on their website for the world to examine.  Strange how PP isn’t so transparent, huh?  Second, if they were not true and accurate, Planned Parenthood would have slapped CMP with a defamation lawsuit so fast it would have made Cecile Richards’ peroxided head spin.   Planned Parenthood is in bed with many large law firms with very deep benches (and pockets).   If the videos are false, it would be a slam dunk.  But there’s a downside to filing a defamation lawsuit:  Truth is the perfect defense.   And the last thing the Planned Parenthood babes (and their stable of geldings) want is to have a jury determine what the truth is.  Planned Parenthood had no problemo racing into court to try and get an injunction against the release of more videos – even though such a lawsuit was juxtaposed to the First Amendment.  C’mon Cecile, act like a man for crying out loud.
  • What do these videos show?  Sure, PP is dealing in baby parts for money.   But, more importantly, they incontrovertibly show what we’ve known all along.  THESE. ARE. BABIES.  Hey, Chris Cuomo, quit denying science you stinking pretend Catholic idiot.  Just because Steny Hoyer can’t muster the testicular mass to acknowledge that human hearts, human livers, and human brains come from (wait for it), HUMANS, doesn’t mean we should buy into the demonic, false narrative.

These videos have given those that care about human rights, human dignity an effective tool to talk about the humanity of the unborn child and to protect at least some of them from the clutches of the world’s largest abortion provider.  Congress is demonstrating that they can not be left unsupervised.

GOP funds Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood wraps themselves in pink
To try and hide their deeds, boy, they do stink
And Cecile dares every Congressional Republican
And show us all who is the better man
And the gutless GOP wonders blink.
