Priorities and Frequency

Dear Readers,

I love writing this blog, but I need to slow down a little bit.  Posts won't be as regular or as frequent.  I need to attend to Fantasy Bishball until Advent because I said I would.  Also, and this is the main reason, I need to concentrate on weightloss and focus on that.  I'm cutting out Tiny Tower and blog posts I don't need to write to make time for workouts and maybe starting a Catholic/Orthodox weight loss blog.

Please continue to read older posts, there are almost 200 of them!  I'll add more as things hit the news.

Margaret Sanger

4 Degrees

Margaret Sanger's life's work is at odds with that of Jesus Christ.  But I think it only fair that Ms Sanger be allowed to speak for herself.  Here is an interview with Mike Wallace from the early 1960s.

Take a moment now to jot down the reasons why you believe abortion should be legal.  Even if you are a Catholic in step with The Church, go ahead, write them down.  Fewer poor people, fewer people born into instability, economic power for women might be among your reasons.

I think that abortion is still legal because Christians have not really put their heart into the issue.  Some distinctly annoying and distasteful Christians scream and yell on sidewalks and put gruesome pictures of baby pieces on their front lawn.  Some Christians hold long discourse with pro-choice friends over glasses of Merlot and agree to disagree.  Most just leave the fight to someone else, their view on the topic an ambivalent mix of understanding and revulsion.

In this Freakanomics piece, we see how the explosion of abortion in the 1970s made for far fewer criminals in the 1990s.  
Back to Ms Sanger.  Did you know she was the darling of the KKK lecture circuit?

Guess who drank Ms Sanger's cool-aide?

Second degree Barack Obama is carrying on the Aryan crusade of Margaret Sanger.  I don't believe that President Obama is ultimately comfortable with his public support of abortion.  Father Robert Barron thinks so too.

So think about it, is racism, classism, or a dislike of children keeping you from actively opposing abortion?  What about guilt for having an abortion or fathering an aborted baby?  Statistics from Planned Parenthood and The National Organization for Women say that between 30-40% of American women have an abortion in her lifetime.  Sure, shame comes from sin and abortion is a sin, but there's a cure for that, CONFESSION! Just go to confession and get on with it.  Quit wasting your time sitting on the fence.

Rupert Murdoch

Rupert is only two degrees from John Paul II as evidenced by the following photos.

Rupert Murdoch and Second Degree, Tony Blaire, check out the clenched smile
of the Prime Minister

A much more relaxed Tony Blaire

Murdoch on left and his wife in red next to President George W Bush.
Mr. Murdoch runs the most prolific media empire in the world, but he's an absolute idiot.  Well, he claims to be an idiot.  In his "humble" testimony before British Parliament, he claimed not to know about his most successful newspaper's journalists tapping the phones of politicians and celebrities.  
Prince Charles was tapped by Murdoch's
organization.  Charles is shown here with
Pope John Paul II
This guy was also tapped by Murdoch's minions.
But it's the suicides and inhuman cruelty that surrounded News of the World that we'll remember.  When a reporter hacked into a phone system and deleted messages so that more calls to a dead kidnapping victim could be recorded, Murdoch's organization was finally caught.  After years of treachery, he's been caught.  Only now, he's turned into Sgt. Schultz from Hogan's Heroes.  

Embodying evil?
Bearing false witness, it's considered a lightweight commandment by many, but it's actually one of the biggies.  We lie routinely, we gossip for entertainment, we think nothing of it.  But as we've seen in these past few posts, lying destroys the work of the good and facilitates the work of The Evil One.  To falsely accuse a priest of abuse means that children are less safe and a good man is ruined.  To cook up stories about people for ratings or paper sales drives the subjects of stories to despair and rips lives apart.

I remember learning that gossip was considered a sin when I was in High School.  I decided to cut it out of my life and didn't talk for over  a week!  Before that, you could never shut me up.  I'll never forget how amazed I was that all my vocal impulses were gossip.  I was ashamed.  Try it, you might be surprised too.

Michele Bachman

Michele Bachmann is making headlines because she is a Tea Party candidate for the 2012 election.  It's highly improbable that a Republican can defeat Obama and Michele's threat to the president's job is beyond unlikely.  It's impossible.  That having been said, let's have some fun.
Please, don't let someone who is so misinformed or disinterested in facts become a nominee.  Please, if you are Republican, push for a qualified candidate.
7 Degrees
Michele, the history L'Enfant terrible, the only woman who could make Sarah Palin look like the president of Mensa, is married to "Dr." Marcus Bachmann.

Separated at birth are Marcus (methinks the "gentleman" doth protest too much) Bachmann and Chastity (Chas) Bono.

Chas is the offspring of Sonny and Cher.

Cher appeared on Sex and the City alongside 4th degree, Sarah Jessica Parker.
