A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

More persecution of Christians

Found this at Catholic News Agency, if anyone wants to quibble about Mormons being Christian you can save your breath. They're a lot closer than some denominations, if it wasn't for that whole thing about no coffee or Coke I'd probably have joined some years ago;

Los Angeles, Nov 10, 2008 / 09:44 pm (CNA).- Supporters of California’s Proposition 8 are reporting harassment and even violent assaults from opponents protesting the passage of the ballot proposal which rescinded a California Supreme Court decision that imposed same-sex marriage on the state. Homosexual activists have held large protests at Mormon temples and Catholic churches, deriding their opponents as hateful.(Yep, nothing like following the rule of law to show you're a real bigot.)

Paul Bishop, a Los Angeles Police Department supervisor reported on the election aftermath in Meridian, a magazine for members of the Latter-Day Saint Church, who are also known as Mormons.

Bishop told how he, as a private citizen, had attended rallies in support of Proposition 8. While both supporters and opponents of the measure honked their horns, he wrote, “the way to tell the difference is the No On 8 supporters usually accompanied their horn honking with an obscene gesture or a string of obscenities. They also liked to swerve their cars toward the children on the curb.” (Classy, look for more shit like this in the future. Christians are so screwed.)

He noted that several of his ward members had received hate mail after their names, religious affiliation, contribution amounts, and addresses were published on a web site inciting Proposition 8 opponents to target the individuals listed. (Uh-huh. But THEY'RE the bigots, right?)

“Their houses and cars had been vandalized, their campaign support signs stolen, and opposition signs planted in their place,” Bishop wrote.

Los Angeles police were deployed to keep the peace at an anti-Proposition 8 protest held last Thursday at the city’s LDS temple, where protesters were rushing the gates.

Bishop reported hearing an officer in the department’s Operations-West Bureau command post say in reaction to the protesters’ action “I hope they burn that place to the ground.” (Geez Louise, this guy was a cop?) Another officer reportedly replied, claiming “the Mormons have an army in a bunker under the temple that will come out and kill them all.” (Might not be a bad idea having an army handy. Doesn't sound like lawabiding citizens can rely too heavily on the cops.)

According to Bishop, some of the 2,500 protesters at the LDS Temple bore signs reading “Separation of Church and Hate” and “Mormon haters.” Some signs were left on the temple walls.

“The late local news showed scenes of several Hispanic females in tears outside the temple trying to remove the signs desecrating the walls and fences surrounding the temple. As these individuals – who according to a temple spokesperson were not church members – removed the hate-filled signs, the mob exploded and began beating the individuals to the ground,” Bishop wrote in Meridian. “Police intervened and arrests were made, but the fact this was allowed to happen at all was appalling.” (Yep, beat the bigots up. Show 'em how tolerance is practiced. Nuts.)

Another protest at an Oakland temple on Sunday prompted officials to shut down nearby freeway off-ramps for over three hours, the Oakland Tribune reports.

"The time has come to take it out there to the people who voted for this awful thing," said San Francisco Supervisor Bevan Dufty. "The Mormon church has had to rely on our tolerance in the past, to be able to express their beliefs."…This is a huge mistake for them. It looks like they've forgotten some lessons." (Wait a minute, this is a public official saying this? Where the hell is the outrage for that one? "They've forgotten some lessons"? Doesn't that sound like a not-so-subtle threat? Where's a lawyer when you need one?)

Another 2,500 protesters gathered at the steps of the state Capitol in Sacramento.

In downtown Los Angeles about 150 protesters gathered before the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels chanting “What would Jesus say?” (How about, "Buzz off?") The Los Angeles Times reports they were later joined by protesters who marched from Lincoln Park.Hundreds of Proposition 8 opponents in Orange County also protested near Pastor Rick Warren’s Saddleback Church. (I don't hear anything about protests at black churches, are they afraid of being labeled racists?)

On Sunday, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger expressed his hope that the California Supreme Court would overturn Proposition 8, predicting that the 18,000 same-sex marriages already contracted in the state would not be nullified. (Arnie, you disappoint me.)

"It's unfortunate, obviously, but it's not the end," Schwarzenegger said in a CNN interview Sunday. "I think that we will again maybe undo that, if the court is willing to do that, and then move forward from there and again lead in that area." (Yep, kinda like the leadership practiced in Sodom & Gomorrah.)

"What would Jesus say?"

How about "I never knew you. Depart from me you who practice lawlessness."

I think all the STD's they're carrying has rotted their brain. Typical "tolerance" from Lucifer's minions.

This is what is referred to as Domestic Terrorism. Pure and simple.

Give us our way or we will destroy (or at least disrupt) you.

Ah, the Change is upon us.

Well, living as I do in the Ohio valley, I guess I don't have to worry about what happens on the coast. Until the trend gets here, which it will.

I guess I'd better go to confession more frequently and figure out how to E&E my pasto from mobs. Our Parish Shurch has been beset by mobs before, so I guess we'll be OK.
