Wow! October 20, 2011

Silly me!  And here I thought the days of anti-Catholic bigotry were over.

Some background.  I recently friended a fellow Ham Radio operator on Facebook.  So far so good, right?  Then I see some decidedly anti-Catholic posts and my dander fires up.  I make a few posts in defense of the Faith and then all of a sudden I feel like I’m sitting in Jack Chick’s living room!

The Roman Catholic Church is unBiblical, we’re a sect dedicated to genocide (Inquisition), the Mary bashing started, and the next thing you know, I was hearing how I worship a “false” Jesus.  I have to admit, I’ll be darned because all these years I thought there was only One.

I apologized to my friend and told him that he could “unfriend” me if he wanted to; but there’s no way that he would ever be able to shake my faith.  What’s really, really, really, REALLY sad is that he admitted to me that he’s a lapsed Catholic; but that he now belongs to a “True Christian” denomination.

When you argue logically, based on fact and all you get hit with is weird conspiracy theories – all you can do is pray for folks like these.  They’re still seeking.

It’s 33 minutes long; but is sobering.  If you are “Pro-Choice” and don’t have second thoughts after watching this, something is wrong!

This can be found on YouTube – share it with your friends – share it with your friends who are “Pro-Choice” especially the ones who are that way because they think it’s “the right way” to be.

I am not new to blogging, as I have a blog that is devoted to Amateur Radio that is coming up on 7 years of existence now.  But this is my first real attempt at blogging about my Faith and issues that are Catholic in nature.

For the record, I am not a theologian nor a catechist.  I am not Mark Shea, Mary Kochan, Marcellino D’Ambrosio or like any of the really talented Catholic writers out there.  I am just your average, Joe Everyman who sits in the pew every Sunday.  That is not to say I am not active in my parish and community, as I am.  But I am nothing special.  I am not what I would consider to be exceptionally wise or educated.  But I do think I have a modicum of common sense; and I do know that for the most part, I know what’s right and what’s wrong.  I am a member of the Knights of Columbus and I am a member of their 4th Degree – the Patriotic Degree.  Being a member of the Knights, I am undoubtedly, unabashedly, unapologetically Pro-Choice.  Does that surprise you?

Let me clarify that by stating my “Choice” is Life; and not death.  My choice is Life; and not murder. My Choice is Life and not euthanasia or capital punishment.

And I am very opinionated!  Yes, I know what they say about everyone having an opinion.

I will try in the upcoming weeks and months to express my feelings in the space.  I feel I was called to do that.  If you disagree with what I post here – that’s all well and good.  But the last time I checked, the “Progressive” element in our country was still not successful in removing the First Amendment from the Bill of Rights.  So if you don’t like what you see here, I invite you to move on.

Now, on to the meat of this first post ………

Can someone please tell me why this woman has not been excommunicated?

She has to be one of the worst Catholics in politics.  How this woman can call herself Catholic and be such an advocate for death is beyond me.  As I understand it, excommunication is an act of mercy. It was designed to kind of shock Catholics into realizing that they are on the wrong road and are putting their souls into eternal peril.  Nancy Pelosi seems to be travelling that road with her unwavering, stubborn stance supporting abortion.

I am hoping that praying for her will cause her to repent and change her ways.  But maybe a strong nudge from her Bishop is what’s needed to get her to wake up and smell the coffee.

Can you imagine what a crushing blow it would be to the abortion industry to have one of their most visible proponents repent and change ways?

From this page to God’s eye!

Thanks for reading this.
