Check out this from Hot Air Blog

While there were disagreements in the Church’s early history regarding whether unborn children have souls, the Catholic Church has always condemned abortion as a grave evil. Christian writers from the first-century author of the Didache to Pope John Paul II in his encyclical Evangelium Vitae (”The Gospel of Life”) have maintained that the Bible forbids abortion.


The Didache (A.D. 70)
The Letter of Barnabas (A.D. 74).
The Apocalypse of Peter (A.D. 137).
Athenagoras (A.D. 177)
Tertullian (Apology 9:8 (A.D. 197), The Soul 25 (A.D. 210)
Minucius Felix (A.D. 226)
Hippolytus (A.D. 228)
Council of Ancyra (A.D. 314)
Basil the Great (A.D. 374)
John Chrysostom (A.D. 391)
Jerome (A.D. 396)
The Apostolic Constitutions (A.D. 400)

Is the USCCB loosing their authority!

Catholic bishops invite controversial speakers-- my question is this, what controversy? The Lord has been very clear as has the Church and these individuals are promoting lifestyles in direct disobedience to Christ!

Lord, come quick and save us before the USCCB leads people astray with these antilife social experiments.

Here is the article from OneNewsNow by Charlie Butts describing what has frustrated me and why I am so concerned for our Bishops. I hope Charlie is not telling the truth and if this article is not the truth about the USCCB, then I recant everything; otherwise, what are we Catholics to do?

Charlie Butts - OneNewsNow - 2/8/2010 5:40:00 AMThe American Life League (ALL) is taking issue with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops' (USCCB) social gathering.

The four-day meeting is under way in the nation's capitol, and Michael Hichborn, media director for ALL, tells OneNewsNow that some of the speakers and panelists have been associated with views that are contrary to church doctrine.

That includes Thomas Reese "who was forced to resign as editor of American Magazine by the Vatican after a five-year investigation where they consistently asked him to stop publishing stories which question church teaching on things like contraception, embryonic stem-cell research, same-sex 'marriage,' homosexual priests [and] mandatory clerical celibacy," Hichborn reports.

The media director is concerned that while the Bishops' Conference denies cavorting with such individuals, they still invite someone like Reese to speak. Another speaker is Dr. Diana Hayes, a professor at Georgetown University.

"She's also a noted speaker for Call to Action, which is a -- quote, unquote – 'dissident' group, but Hayes is a homosexuality activist who wrote a book espousing liberation theology," Hichborn explains. "She calls for women's ordination and she promotes same-sex 'marriage.'"

The pro-life spokesman suggests the Conference needs to face up to the facts and stop playing rhetorical games. In addition, he urges Catholics to contact the Conference and raise serious questions about recent disclosures.

Who can trust this group if they continue to promote individuals who promote antiChrist ideologies?

This from an e-mail: Where have all the good leaders gone? I want to know!!

Bravo for Iacocca!!!

Just as true today as it was when his book first came out.
He was, and still is, a brilliant businessman!
Often we need to be reminded of Iococca's words.

Remember Lee Iacocca, the man who rescued Chrysler Corporation from its death throes? He's now 82 years old and has a new book, 'Where Have All The Leaders Gone?'.

Lee Iacocca Says:

'Am I the only guy in this country who's fed up with what's happening? Where the hell is our outrage with this so called president? We should be screaming bloody murder! We've got a gang of tax cheating clueless leftists trying to steer our ship of state right over a cliff, we've got corporate gangsters stealing us blind, and we can't even run a ridiculous cash-for-clunkers program without losing $26 billion of the taxpayers' money, much less build a hybrid car. But instead of getting mad, everyone sits around and nods their heads when the politicians say, 'trust me the economy is getting better.'

Better? You've got to be kidding. This is America , not the damned, 'Titanic'. I'll give you a sound bite: 'Throw all the Democrats out along with Obama!'

You might think I'm getting senile, that I've gone off my rocker, and maybe I have. But someone has to speak up. I hardly recognize this country anymore..

The most famous business leaders are not the innovators but the guys in handcuffs.. While we're fiddling in Afghanistan , Iran is completing their nuclear bombs and missiles and nobody seems to know what to do. And the liberal press is waving 'pom-poms' instead of asking hard questions. That's not the promise of the ' America ' my parents and yours traveled across the ocean for. I've had enough. How about you?

I'll go a step further. You can't call yourself a patriot if you're not outraged. This is a fight I'm ready and willing to have. The Biggest 'C' is Crisis! (Iacocca elaborates on nine C's of leadership, with crisis being the first.)

Leaders are made, not born. Leadership is forged in times of crisis. It's easy to sit there with thumb up your butt and talk theory. Or send someone else's kids off to war when you've never seen a battlefield yourself. It's another thing to lead when your world comes tumbling down.

On September 11, 2001, we needed a strong leader more than any other time in our history. We needed a steady hand to guide us out of the ashes. A hell of a mess, so here's where we stand.

We're immersed in a bloody war now with no plan for winning and no plan for leaving... But our soldiers are dying daily.

We're running the biggest deficit in the history of the world, and it's getting worse every day!

We've lost the manufacturing edge to Asia , while our once-great companies are getting slaughtered by health care costs.

Gas prices are going to skyrock again, and nobody in power has a lucid plan to open drilling to solve the problem. This country has the largest oil reserves in the WORLD, and we cannot drill for it because the politicians have been bought by the flea-hugging environmentalists.
Our schools are in a complete disaster because of the teachers union.

Our borders are like sieves and they want to give all illegal’s amnesty and free healthcare.

The middle class is being squeezed to death every day.

These are times that cry out for leadership.

But when you look around, you've got to ask: 'Where have all the leaders gone?' Where are the curious, creative communicators? Where are the people of character, courage, conviction, omnipotence, and common sense? I may be a sucker for alliteration, but I think you get the point.

Name me a leader who has a better idea for homeland security than making us take off our shoes in airports and throw away our shampoo?

We've spent billions of dollars building a huge new bureaucracy, and all we know how to do is react to things that have already happened.

Everyone's hunkering down, fingers crossed, hoping the government will make it better for them. Now, that's just crazy.. Deal with life.

Name me an industry leader who is thinking creatively about how we can restore our competitive edge in manufacturing. Who would have believed that there could ever be a time when 'The Big Three' referred to Japanese car companies? How did this happen, and more important, look what Obama did about it!
Name me a government leader who can articulate a plan for paying down the debit, or solving the energy crisis, or managing the health care problem. The silence is deafening. But these are the crises that are eating away at our country and milking the middle class dry.

I have news for the Chicago gangsters in Congress. We didn't elect you to turn this country into a losing European Socialist state. What is everybody so afraid of? That some bonehead on NBC or CNN news will call them a name? Give me a break. Why don't you guys show some spine for a change?

Had Enough? Hey, I'm not trying to be the voice of gloom and doom here. I'm trying to light a fire. I'm speaking out because I have hope - I believe in America . In my lifetime, I've had the privilege of living through some of America 's greatest moments. I've also experienced some of our worst crises: The 'Great Depression,' 'World War II,' the 'Korean War,' the 'Kennedy Assassination,' the 'Vietnam War,' the 1970's oil crisis, and the struggles of recent years since 9/11.

Make your own contribution by sending this to everyone you know and care about. It's our country, folks, and it's our future. Our future is at stake!!

Mr Obama,-Please help our children!

Mr. Obama I see you are continuing your love for abortion and killing of babies--Louis Butler Jr. and Edward Chen are pro abortion judges-- well you can eat my shorts. I certainly don't wish any harm upon you but I would love for your presidency to come to an end. Why do you love killing babies so much? Why? Just follow the link--PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA WILL RENOMINATE TWO ABORTION ADVOCATES FOR JUDGESHIPS

I will always pray for love to guide your actions and so I beg God to enter your heart and change your ways, but should that not happen, I pray for your presidency to end! I will pray for your impeachment or your resignation so America can close this painful chapter.
