There is so much complicity in this type of homocide. I recall as a seminarian a great controversy when some of the guys with holy communion were obliged to visit women in hospitals who were abortion patients. They were told not to be judgmental. Here is a woman who regrets her decision, but too late.
The fact that they were dressed as nuns was probably the give-away, now if they were in polyester pant-suits, they might have gotten away with it. Goodness!
I can say that I am a ballerina or a space alien, but saying it will not make it so. The poor lady is just one more fake wannabe priest.
But it is a poignant irony that Martin Richard, the 8-year-old boy who died on Boylston Street, was a Catholic who had received his first Communion just last year. As Martin lay dying, priests were only yards away, beyond the police tape, unable to reach him to administer last rites…
It could have been worse. I recall a bishop several years ago being spat upon and purportedly doused with urine by protestors. We will see more of this as our clash with the modern world intensifies.
Tell me again there is no hell. Such monsters will not escape divine justice!
Not Spanish, despite their high numbers of immigrants and their birthrate? Hum, could it be because they are mostly Catholic? Arabic is necessary for the proper reading of the Koran and the required prayer chants. While there are translations, traditional Islam frowns upon them and only the original text is regarded as “inspired” or authoritative. Such would make language education a vital ingredient to the expansion of Islam. I vote for compulsory Latin… it will open up the classics of Western civilization, help restore dignity to Catholic worship and make a big difference in understanding basic grammar.
How many public schools teach compulsory Hebrew? Israel is also a big part of the world-peace struggle, too. Of course, Judaism does not tend to be as proactive in making converts as is either Islam or Christianity.
The article includes the quote, “Soon, Arabic will be a global language like French and Spanish. These kids are like sponges. It’s amazing to see their progress.” What is not said is that Arabic is not really a secular language but is one rooted in a particular culture and faith. I am not saying that I am opposed to such instances of education, as long as schools provide other languages and teach the classics. However, many schools no longer teach Latin and Greek. The Christian worldview, along with its culture, is being ecclipsed by a secular humanism that is ill-equipped for the ideological wars and faith conflicts which are pressing upon us.
This was never in question, popes may change, doctrine does not.
A true consistent life-ethic.
