Piers Morgan and Soledad O’Brien on real reason why Pope will resign

These Liberals are hinting that there must be something else that caused the Pope to step down.


But they do not question Benghazi, Sandy Hook and Fast & Furious - where there are real questions. 
Insinuating that a frail, sick, old Pope who wants the Church to be led properly has some nefarious reason besides that is not only disrespectful, it is appalling - even for those two pretend journalists.

Gun registration will lead to confiscation. From Canada experience.


Brian Lilley gives an important warning to his American friends: registration of firearms will lead to the confiscation of firearms. 

Touchy Pres Offended at Prayer Breakfast


I think he needs a thicker hide don't you?  Someone calls attention to his massive deficit spending and he starts whinning. WTHey Barry.  It's not always about you.  Consider the kids who will have to pay for your deficit spending and the folks who still have no jobs. 

Bishops allow pro-aborts Communion to avoid criminal charges?

A commentator wrote:
The "moral incoherence" of the bishops is indeed hard to excuse or even understand. But the sooner it ends the better. Some people are speculating that the bishops have made a deal with liberal politicians. The bishops will not deny them communion in return for which the pols will see that the bishops are not prosecuted for covering up child abuse. Does anyone know what the truth really is re this matter?

Archbishops Chaput pushes to deny communion to pro-abortion rights Catholic politicians


"Denver Archbishop Chaput asked Notre Dame University Catholics this weekend to press for Church policy that would deny communion to U.S. Catholic politicians who support pro-choice or pro-gay rights positions. The speech comes in the wake of surveys that show most Catholics don’t agree with Chaput on the issues.

Archbishop Chaput
“There is unity among the bishops about abortion always being wrong, and that you can’t be a Catholic and be in favor of abortion — the bishops all agree to that,” Chaput said. “But there’s just an inability among the bishops together to speak clearly on this matter and even to say that, if you’re Catholic and you’re pro-choice, you can’t receive holy communion.”
Chaput said the bishops should adopt a clear policy that directs priests to not give communion to pro-choice Catholics and that instructs pro-choice parishioners not to present themselves for communion at mass.
Chaput said he’s been trying to persuade the U.S. bishops conference to take his view on this issue for years but that some bishops believe a hard-line stand like the one he proposes would make it difficult for Catholic politicians to win election.
“Help me convince the bishops on this subject,” he asked the crowd."

Full text of Pope's declaration
Dear Brothers,
I have convoked you to this Consistory, not only for the three canonizations, but also to communicate to you a decision of great importance for the life of the Church. After having repeatedly examined my conscience before God, I have come to the certainty that my strengths, due to an advanced age, are no longer suited to an adequate exercise of the Petrine ministry. I am well aware that this ministry, due to its essential spiritual nature, must be carried out not only with words and deeds, but no less with prayer and suffering. However, in today’s world, subject to so many rapid changes and shaken by questions of deep relevance for the life of faith, in order to govern the bark of Saint Peter and proclaim the Gospel, both strength of mind and body are necessary, strength which in the last few months, has deteriorated in me to the extent that I have had to recognize my incapacity to adequately fulfill the ministry entrusted to me. For this reason, and well aware of the seriousness of this act, with full freedom I declare that I renounce the ministry of Bishop of Rome, Successor of Saint Peter, entrusted to me by the Cardinals on 19 April 2005, in such a way, that as from 28 February 2013, at 20:00 hours, the See of Rome, the See of Saint Peter, will be vacant and a Conclave to elect the new Supreme Pontiff will have to be convoked by those whose competence it is.Dear Brothers, I thank you most sincerely for all the love and work with which you have supported me in my ministry and I ask pardon for all my defects. And now, let us entrust the Holy Church to the care of Our Supreme Pastor, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and implore his holy Mother Mary, so that she may assist the Cardinal Fathers with her maternal solicitude, in electing a new Supreme Pontiff. With regard to myself, I wish to also devotedly serve the Holy Church of God in the future through a life dedicated to prayer.
From the Vatican, 10 February 2013
