Video: Oppose Kagan unless you know Karate and are bullet-proof.

Oppose Kagan unless you want to hunt with a bow & shoot vermin with a slingshot.  Or you can use a baseball bat to fight off an intruder.  The problem is those guys have guns.

Contact you senators before it is too late.  Use link on the side panel to find info.  If video fails, go to http://divine-ripples.blogspot.com/2010/07/video-oppose-kagan-unless-you-want-to.html

Archbishop calls for civil disobedience to protest abortion; Manhattan Declaration?

(From Fr. Z)  CNA Reports: " Archbishop Francisco Gil Hellin warned this week there is no right to kill an innocent human being and therefore no obligation to obey to the new law on abortion. Rather, “direct opposition without distinction” must be mounted, he said.

“Let’s be clear: this law is not a law, although it is presented as such by some politicians and lawmakers. It is no law because nobody has the right to take the life of an innocent human being. For this reason it is not obligatory. Moreover, it demands direct opposition without distinction,” the archbishop said in a letter.

He underscored that reason cannot recognize abortion as a right because it constitutes the killing “of a person who is not guilty.” “The right of a person to exist who has already been conceived, although not yet born, is not a belief stemming from any religion. One does not need to be a believer to hold that an innocent person has the right to be defended and respected in his or her integrity. Common sense dictates that one cannot take a human life in order to solve another problem or to “get money or votes,” he said. ... "

But this was in Burgos, Spain.  Today, the Obama administration approves the use of tax monies to fund abortions under Obamacare - contrary to the president's signed commitment.  I've read that the signers of the Manhattan Declaration were ready to engage in civil disobedience too to protest the use of their tax payments for abortion.  But I haven't heard any activities towards this end.  Also, the USCCB has not issued any calls to do the same.

Courage comes from the word cour that means heart - a symbol of love.  Could it be that this Spanish bishop loves the unborn and God more than anyone in the USCCB?  Fortitude comes from fortis meaning strength.  Perhaps, this Spaniard works out in the spiritual gym more or maybe the bishops here need to eat more chili and watch matadors face off with the toros.  Or maybe they just need to pray more, just as I need to pray for them.

Obama admin OKs first tax-funded abortions under Obamacare. Keehan? Stupak?

What happened to that note that Obama signed assuring Stupak that taxes won't fund abortions under Obamacare?  Were they naive and gullible or were they part of an act?  Either way, what they did just promoted the carnage of unborn Americans.  I doubt if they give a damn though.

And does Keehan, LCWR and CHA believe the bishops now?  Shame on these unfaithful nuns for facilitating this genocide.  The blood of the aborted is now on their consciences.

LifeNews.com reports:
"The Obama administration has officially approved the first instance of taxpayer funded abortions under the new national government-run health care program. This is the kind of abortion funding the pro-life movement warned about when Congress considered the bill.
The Obama Administration will give Pennsylvania $160 million to set up a new "high-risk" insurance program under a provision of the federal health care legislation enacted in March.
It has quietly approved a plan submitted by an appointee of pro-abortion Governor Edward Rendell under which the new program will cover any abortion that is legal in Pennsylvania.

The high-risk pool program is one of the new programs created by the sweeping health care legislation, Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, President Obama signed into law on March 23. The law authorizes $5 billion in federal funds for the program, which will cover as many as 400,000 people when it is implemented nationwide.

"The Obama Administration will give Pennsylvania $160 million in federal tax funds, which we've discovered will pay for insurance plans that cover any legal abortion," said Douglas Johnson, legislative director for the National Right to Life Committee."
