Judge Roy Moore & Foundation for Moral Law Welcome Court of Appeals Decision Reversing Ban on Prayer

Former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore and the Foundation for Moral Law hailed the decision issued yesterday by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit in Hinrichs v. Speaker of the House, Indiana General Assembly as a victory in the battle against prayer censorship in the halls of government. The Hinrichs decision reversed an order by a federal district court banning prayers given in the name of Jesus in the Indiana legislature, the result Judge Moore and the Foundation had asked for in its amicus brief filed before the Court—but the Court did so only because the particular plaintiffs in the case did not have legal standing to bring their lawsuit.

Hillary: A Rose Between Two Thorns

—Satire

Senator Barack Obama (D- Illinois) and former North Carolina Senator John Edwards, both liberals to a fault, are almost always wrong on most issues. Dead wrong, out to lunch, no question about it.

Belgium: Eurabization Report 2007

By Filip Dewinter, www.islam-watch.org

The situation in Belgium does not differ significantly from the situation in other Western European countries, except for the fact that it might be worse here than elsewhere because Belgium is an artificial state without a national identity to defend.

Two-faced oil Sheiks who trade in terror

image By Prof. Michael Burleigh, Daily Mail

The arrival yesterday of King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia on a state visit has already generated more than the usual share of hypocrisy from both sides of a relationship built not on affection but on oil and commerce.

Even before he set off from Riyadh, the King chided our security services for allegedly ignoring Saudi warnings about the imminence of the 7/7 London bombings and for being half-hearted in combating terrorism.

Since Saudi Arabia is perhaps the most potent force behind global terrorism, promoting a deeply fundamentalist strain of Islamic theology worldwide, this must be one of the most hypocritical statements of all time.

Dark Matter Not Matter…

For a long time now, dark matter has been the explanation for one of those space anomalies that no one has quite been able to figure out. The anomaly? The visible and interesting stuff that hangs around our universe—stars, planets, gasses and dust—are simply not heavy enough.

The Necklace

Gujarat, India. Gold and woman are almost synonymous to each other. It is very rare to find a woman who does not get attracted towards gold and jewelry. It is the same with me also, but most of us are not aware that the net gold investment turns out to be a loss instead of gain. How? Well, you will be able to find more about it when you read my experience and co-relate it with that of yours.

Fire All Government Workers

We conservatives are fond of wanting to oust everyone in office and for wanting to “vote the scoundrels out.” But, I’d like to add one more level to the throw-them-out-of-government genera. Let’s fire every government worker from the smallest village receptionist or sewer worker to the staffers of the highest Senator and every menial clerk and recalcitrant paper shuffler in between.

The new morality

All cultures require a set of moral principles in order to maintain a sense of self-worth.  Our own culture is currently in the process of redefining our understanding of morality to better conform to the dominant social and political ethos.  All that was once a moral imperative is now passe and a new sense of morality is appearing on the social and cultural landscape.

Open letter to Most Reverend George H. Niederauer

Most Reverend George H. Niederauer                         October 29, 2007
Archbishop of San Francisco
One Peter Yorke Way
San Francisco, CA 94109-6602

Your Excellency: 
During your first visit to Most Holy Redeemer parish on Sunday October 7th, 2007, you gave Our Lord in Holy Communion to members of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence (SPI) a homosexual activist group widely known for its attacks upon and mockery of the Catholic Faith.  Your subsequent October 11th apology notes that you did not recognize these “strangely dressed persons” as members of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence and that these individuals should not have received Holy Communion, nor should the minister of the Church administer the Sacrament to them.
