When Did the Vatican Become Communist China?

According to the lame stream media, Rome "cracks down" on liturgical abuse.

One of the main points of the Vatican document commissioned by Pope John Paul II warned against lay people delivering sermons or preaching the Gospel.

The document uses terse language to discourage the misconduct, saying some practices were "not infrequently" plaguing Masses and that in some places "the perpetration of liturgical abuses has become almost habitual, a fact which obviously cannot be allowed and must cease."

It also said anyone conscious of being in grave sin shouldn’t receive Communion without going to confession -- a regulation that prompted questions about whether priests should deny politicians, such as Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry, Communion because of their support for abortion rights.

Cardinal Francis Arinze, whose Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments issued the document, said the majority of priests celebrate Mass correctly and stressed the directive was not intended to be "repressive" but merely to remind Catholics of church teaching.

The directive restated church teaching on all aspects of the liturgy, from the type of vestments a priest should wear, to the timing of his prayers and the types of bread and wine used at Communion.
Teachers' Union Co-Sponsors Pro-Abortion March

If you're a faithful Catholic and a public school teacher, opt-out of the union now and ask to have any mandatory agency fees you are required to pay the union (i.e., Moloch) be diverted to an unobjectionable charity.

Feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions on how to do this.

GOP Vets Rip Kerry in Congress

And the best that the Dems could do to counter was to have uber-liberal Baghdad Jim McDermott question Dubya's honorable service in the National Guard.

Calling All Muslims!

A Michigan city approves a local mosque's request to air prayer calls to Muslims over public loudspeakers -- 5 times a day!

Somehow I get the feeling that the same courtesy would not be extended to a local parish wishing to expressly exhort Catholics to pray the Rosary.
Race Whoring

It's still a thriving area of practice in the legal/political profession.

The usual suspects -- plus one holier-than-thou world power -- are calling on the U.S. military to repent for its treatment of Muslim chaplain James Yee (a.k.a. "Yousef" or "Yousif" Yee).

Refresher: Yee's the Army captain who ministered to al Qaeda and Taliban detainees at Guantanamo Bay. Seven months ago, Yee was arrested on suspicion of espionage. He spent 76 days in solitary confinement; the case didn't materialize; he was convicted on lesser charges of adultery and downloading pornography. Last week, the Army Southern Command chief who oversees military operations at Guantanamo dismissed those convictions.

What more do Yee and his sympathy circle want? They want the government to grovel and beg forgiveness for being too aggressive in defending against potential terrorist sympathizers and abettors. In a letter to President Bush, Yee's lawyer complained of guards who "refused to provide him with a liturgical calendar or prayer rug and refused to tell him the time of day or the direction of Mecca." Comparing it to the victimization of gay soldiers, commentator Andrew Sullivan condemned the military's enforcement of the Uniform Code of Military Justice against Yee as "disgraceful, foul and malicious." And now, along with Arab-American and Asian-American activists trying to turn Yee into an international human rights poster boy, comes the Communist government of China.

According to the Zhongguo Xinwen She news agency, the Chinese ambassador to the United Nations, Sha Zukang, blasted the U.S. for "racial discrimination" and cited "the recent case against Chinese American Yousef Yee" as an example of America's "domestic human rights situation." The absurdity of turning this into a racial issue is topped only by the sanctimony of Ambassador Sha, representative of the Falun Gong-torturing, political dissent-steamrolling, one-child-policy pioneers in Beijing, who fulminated that "the United States should look at itself in a mirror." Captain Yee's stateside defenders, such as Cecilia Chang of the San Francisco Bay Area-based grievance group Justice for New Americans, likewise pretend he was viciously singled out for being the child of "immigrant minorities." Chang complained, "Many people who don't look very 'American' are being targeted."

The Slippary Slope

Distort the definition of marriage by officially recognizing homogamous unions, then you better be able to come up with a good reason for why polygamous, or even incestuous, unions should continued to be universally outlawed.
Pretext for Homo-Indoctrination

"G@y" rights activists exploit a tran$exual murder victim in order to justify forcing public school children to accept their disordered lifestyle. That's right. If you believe tran$exual or homo$exual conduct is perverse or immoral, you are a potential murderer.

Give Me a Break

Big wig lawyers unite to oppose any splitting of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. The "bipartisan" group cites potential injustices as a reason for their opposition.

Yeah, Heaven forbid that we should ever have a Federal Circuit Court of Appeal that doesn't consistently get overturned by the SCOTUS, or has a backlog of unresolved cases that arises from a willingness to entertain and affirm the delusions of left-wing anti-Christians like the ACLU and Michael Newdow.
