Three Lesbians Married in Massachusetts

Here comes the bride. And another one. And another one! Meet world's first married lesbian THREESOME . . . and they're expecting a baby due in July

Ah...but they told us this wasn't the way same-sex marriage would be. No, it's just like heterosexual marriage only the two people are same sex. Well, folks, here's the reality in Massachusetts, one of the nuttiest states in the country. And why not a marriage next month between four lesbians, or six, or two lesbians and two gay guys. That would save money on making babies. Just use the M word and a turkey baster.

How bizarre will things get? Just use your imagination. If you can imagine it, expect it. Two guys and their German Shepherd? Why not? A guy, his dog, and his goat?

Of course PETA might not like getting the animals involved without their consent. But, hey, maybe they can bark twice to show their approval.

Sheesh!

They Recognized Him in the Breaking of the Bread


This morning's gospel reading was the two disciples meeting Jesus on the road to Emmaus. It's one of my favorite Easter events. There's so much humor in the story. The disciples are presumably "going home" to their village of Emmaus which was about seven miles northeast of Jerusalem. They are sad and disheartened despite the fact that the women reported that Jesus was risen. Obviously they don't believe it. Jesus made no secret of the fact that His death and Resurrection were going to happen, but His thick-headed followers had their own expectation and nothing was going to budge them from their sadness and disappointment when they didn't materialize.

But they meet Jesus on the road. And, oh, what a meeting.

Gay Days at Disney: A "Vile Spectacle" According to Gay Man

The Gay Days schedule for 2014:
Thu, June 5 - Animal Kingdom
Fri, June 6 - Disney's Hollywood Studios
Sat, June 7 - Magic Kingdom
Sun, June 8 - Epcot
“Go get a room." 
That’s exactly what I feel like yelling this time every year as Gay Days descend upon Orlando. I know that during the first week in June, unsuspecting families and otherwise good and reasonable people will, at times, be confronted with images and events they would probably rather not see or experience on their family vacation. These people paid to visit Disney World, but during the first week in June, it looks a lot more like South Beach. 
For the record, I’m a 42-year old gay man living in Orlando. I’ve been to Gay Days before, and thought it was a little bit over the top, but always bit my lip – especially here on the site. This year though, it just seems completely out of control, and I wanted to get this off my chest.
I’ve watched over the years as Gay Days has grown in scope and size. What once was a small group of well-meaning gay men and lesbians has grown – and in my opinion, deformed – into what is now nothing more than a vile spectacle of self indulgence and indecency. (Read the rest.)

Terrorists? Look at Harry Reid and the BLM!

Harry Reid and his fellow Nevada senator Dean Heller faced off recently with Reid labeling Bundy's supporters as "domestic terrorists" vs. Heller's designation of them as "patriots." (More here.)

Now I ask you...who looks like terrorists? The cowpokes on horseback protecting the Bundy family by their presence or the BLM snipers on the hill with American citizens in their gunsites, using tasers on people, and throwing a pregnant woman on the ground? It's Ruby Ridge and Waco 2. And it sure looks like the feds trying to provoking a confrontation so they could justify mowing down innocent folks -- again. Remember Ruby Ridge and Waco? The government shot first in both cases and then they murdered people without provocation. And for what? Randy Weaver was entrapped into sawing off a shotgun! That justified attacking his property with a swat team, killing the dogs, then shooting a 14-year-old child in the back because he shot his gun in the air? That justified murdering Vicky as she stood in the door holding their infant child? And David Koresh. So he was an oddball with some different religious beliefs. The local child services had investigated reports that the children were endangered and found them unfounded. So what were the feds doing to "save the children?" Their assault was unjustified and they murdered almost 100 innocent people with terrorist tactics including assaulting the compound at all hours with loud rock music and pumping the building full of a dangerous gas. If you watch the videos it also looks like they shot anyone trying to escape the building. And we're supposed to trust our government? The feds legitimized all the fears of government held by the Branch Davidians! And now the Clive Bundy ranch is invaded by snipers, drones, and war machines for NOT PAYING GRAZING FEES?

Let me ask that again. You really think the feds are justified engaging in an armed militaristic confrontation with a SWAT team over failure to pay grazing fees? What ever happened to garnishing wages? No, this is all about corruption and money! Why did the government build a super highway out in the middle of nowhere near the Bundy ranch? Watch the video below and follow the money! Thar's big plans for them thar hills and the Bundy family isn't part of it. Now the Harry Reid family, that may be a different story. The BLM is transferring land to cronies with influence.

No, this is not about the grazing fees. Bundy is the last rancher in Clark County after they've driven off dozens of others. He is the last man standing against Leviathan and they want to destroy him if he refuses to go quietly so they can use the land as they wish. Watch the video: "They need to put the access road through the Bundy ranch....because of the lay of the land. They need to go right through the center of the Bundy ranch." And if they have to use violence or IRS shenanigans they'll do it. This isn't over by a long shot and it's a shot across the bow for all freedom-loving Americans. Wake up, it could be your property next if they want it for a shopping mall, a development, or a park.

Margaret Sanger: Population Guru who wanted "No more babies."



Sanger called for a ten year moratorium on babies in the developed world in 1947, the year I was born. If her philosophy had prevailed, I would have lost at least four of my siblings who were born in 1948, 1950, 1952, 1954, and a little brother in 1956 who died. Thank you, Mom and Dad, for your generosity in giving life and recognizing that babies are God's opinion that world should go on. Margaret Sanger really was the godmother of the Culture of Death and one of the most selfish people who ever lived. May God have mercy on her soul.

Easter Joy: The Regina Coeli

During the Easter season, the Regina Coeli replaces the Angelus. What a beautiful hymn of joy. Mother of our Savior, pray for us!



Translation:

Queen of heaven, rejoice, alleluia:
For He whom you merited to bear, alleluia,
Has risen, as He said, alleluia.
Pray for us to God, alleluia.

Rejoice and be glad, O Virgin Mary, Alleluia.
For the Lord has truly risen, Alleluia.

Let us pray: O God, who by the resurrection of Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, has been pleased to fill the world with joy, grant, we beseech You, that through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, His Mother, we may receive the joys of eternal life, through the same Christ our Lord. Amen

V. Rejoice and be glad, O Virgin Mary, alleluia.
R. Because the Lord is truly risen, alleluia.

Let us pray:
O God, who by the resurrection of Your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ,
granted joy to the whole world: grant, we beg You, that through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, His Mother, we may lay hold of the joys of eternal life. Through Christ our Lord.

Judge Napolitano on Cliven Bundy Ranch Invasion

Want to fight terrorism? Stand against the "uber-aggressive" federal government that lines up snipers against patriotic Americans while leaving our borders undefended and welcomes an invasion of illegals, including drug cartels and terrorists, crossing our borders unhindered. What's wrong with this picture?



The judge criticizes the "authoritative, militaristic ways" and the "overreach" of the Feds. He describes Bundy as becoming a popular national hero. "In the hearts and minds of Americans [Clive Bundy] he's won because he has resisted the uber-agressive enforcement by the federal government of their victory in court."

Pelosi Playing Priestess Panders for Press Op --- PATHETIC!

“Catholic” Pelosi Washes Feet in Episcopal Church, Promotes Immigration Bill

Somebody put a bag over her head -- please. She never misses an opportunity to make herself ridiculous. She claims to be a "devout" Catholic. No devout Catholic would do this. But, for a Democrat, it's all about the meaning of "is". So "Is" Nancy a devout Catholic. Hahahahhahahahahahahahah...........

Passion of the Christ: Not for the Squeamish

Larry and I watched Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ last night as our Good Friday meditation. During the day I read St. Francis de Sale's Lenten talk for Good Friday. What a world of difference between words on a page and visceral images of the beatings and scourgings!

This is only the second time I've seen the film. I could never bring myself to put it on again remembering how graphic and gruesome it was, how barbaric his torturers were. I'm reminded of the surgeon, Pierre Barbet, who wrote in his book, A Doctor at Calvary, that he can no longer walk the way of the cross because he is so aware of what our salvation cost the Savior:

Good Friday Silence: The Crucifixion Says it All

Matthias Grunewald 1508

Big Government Steals Your Money, Your Family, and, Ultimately, Your Freedom

I don't agree with everything in this little film. Reagan made his own contribution to bigger government. And Paul Ryan wouldn't necessarily be my choice for president. But the principles presented here and the facts of a growing out-of-control federal government is right on. Fight the left by choosing the right.

Mass of the Lord's Supper

Thank you, Jesus, for instituting the Holy Eucharist so that we can say, not, Jesus DWELT among us, but, instead, Jesus DWELLS among us. How blessed are we who embrace the fullness of the faith so that we can receive Jesus daily in His Real Presence and be united with Him in the closest covenant on earth. 


Not for Kids: The Diseased Gay Deathstyle

SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED INFECTIONS
'Chem sex' commonly reported by UK gay men diagnosed with shigella

I had this comment on another post last night from "Nora." 
I was so shocked to come across your blog; I read your comments regarding the retreat for LGBT folks at St Theresa's in Palm Springs. Why are you so anti-gay? What happened to you in your life that would make you crusade against people who only want the same things you do: love,  a happy life and peace? 
I worked for a Catholic organization in the Bay Area for ten years and I will tell you that at least one third of the clergy was gay. If you have an issue with this, you should find another faith....but good luck, because we are everywhere.

My advice to you is to work on softening your heart. You are obviously very afraid of all things gay for a reason. Good luck with your self reflection!
This just made me shake my head. Nora has her head in a cloud

The Birthday of the Priesthood

blessing the oil
Pray for priests today as they celebrate the institution of the priesthood at the Chrism Mass. You can read the pope's homily to the priests attending the Chrism Mass representing all the priests of the world here. I've copied the first two paragraphs below, but be sure to read the entire lovely document:

In the eternal “today” of Holy Thursday, when Christ showed his love for us to the end (cf. Jn 13:1), we recall the happy day of the institution of the priesthood, as well as the day of our own priestly ordination. The Lord anointed us in Christ with the oil of gladness, and this anointing invites us to accept and appreciate this great gift: the gladness, the joy of being a priest. Priestly joy is a priceless treasure, not only for the priest himself but for the entire faithful people of God: that faithful people from which he is called to be anointed and which he, in turn, is sent to anoint. 
Anointed with the oil of gladness so as to anoint others with the oil of gladness. Priestly joy has its source in the Father’s love, and the Lord wishes the joy of this Love to be “ours” and to be “complete” (Jn 15:11). I like to reflect on joy by contemplating Our Lady, for Mary, the “Mother of the living Gospel, is a wellspring of joy for God’s little ones” (Evangelii Gaudium, 288). I do not think it is an exaggeration to say that priest is very little indeed: the incomparable grandeur of the gift granted us for the ministry sets us among the least of men. The priest is the poorest of men unless Jesus enriches him by his poverty, the most useless of servants unless Jesus calls him his friend, the most ignorant of men unless Jesus patiently teaches him as he did Peter, the frailest of Christians unless the Good Shepherd strengthens him in the midst of the flock. No one is more “little” than a priest left to his own devices; and so our prayer of protection against every snare of the Evil One is the prayer of our Mother: I am a priest because he has regarded my littleness (cf. Lk 1:48). And in that littleness we find our joy.
Happy Birthday to all our priests!

Pray for Justina

‘Shocking Note’ Apparently Penned by Justina Pelletier to Her Parents

Justina seems to have fewer rights than prisoners. They have religious services. She's been denied access to a priest or to Mass for her entire incarceration. Prisoners have access to educational programs. Justina hasn't seen a teacher or school book in over a year. Why? What did that poor little girl do to deserve torture and experimentation by Boston Children's Hospital and DCF? The first rule of medicine is "Do no harm." Where are the courts in defending this poor little girl. Judge Joseph Johnston is a disgrace to the legal profession and should be removed and disbarred. And Justina should immediately be returned to her family. 

Please pray during the holy Triduum that this little girl will personally experience the Resurrection of Easter by going home with her family. And may God convert the hearts of her jailers.


More Big-Wig Democrat Schemes Behind Nevada Land Grab

CLINTON/OBAMA CRONIES BEHIND BUNDY SHOWDOWN

It's ALWAYS about the money, certainly not about saving the desert tortoise. 
The lucrative business opportunities explain both why Cliven Bundy has been facing such intense intimidation and why all the other ranchers have been chased out. Bundy represents a financial threat not merely to Reid, but a whole gamut of Democrats tied to Obama, Clinton and Gore. 
This is what has been discovered by examining only a few of the 50-plus projects. Doubtless there are similar stories behind some, if not all, of the others. 
If Democrat-linked entrepreneurs plan to turn the West into a massive arena for green projects, the implications are disturbing. The projects will eventually go as all others have gone before: failing as the unsustainable costs, maintenance problems and unseen environmental catastrophes they create become intolerable. The true goal of “green” energy, say cynics, is to make these people wealthier, not to save the environment.
Love of money is the root of all evils. And greed is the name of the game. Many of forefathers were financially devastated by serving our country. Today, our politicians go to Washington to strike it rich. Many come in with modest incomes and go out millionaires. And you thought we had no house of lords.

Spy Wednesday: Reflecting on the Judas in Myself

How many times do I betray Christ? How many times do I put human respect or selfishness ahead of God's will in my life? How many times do I close my eyes to the needs of my neighbors because they did not meet my expectations or I found them not to my taste? Judas is part of my nature. I know him well. Would I scream, "Crucify him!" before Pilate? Would I mock my God hanging on the cross? Please no, Lord. Make me all yours and then do with me what You will.
