Biden again repeated the false “balance” of politicians that claim to be pro-life, Biden going so far as to say he believed in the doctrine of his Catholic church, which is that life begins at conception, but he “won’t impose” his beliefs on others.

The reaction from the opposition in media is to expose the fact that the Obama-Biden administration is indeed imposing its views on others buy forcing the entire country to pay for abortions.

But here’s the question that should bug the hell out of anybody that comes up with that dubious distinction between private and public personas:

IS IT A BABY OR NOT?

If it is a human life same in the womb as out of the womb, then you cannot say infanticide is bad but prenatal infanticide is okay.

The Pope makes news, there they go again: Slurs against Christianity in the guise of lies about the Catholic Church

March 27, 2012

We know that the Roman Catholic Church has plenty of history to apologize for. We know that they should follow Paul’s advice to “Forbid NOT” to marry, with an eye to his prediction that in the “last days”  some would forbid men to marry… And the last Pope even apologized, in a way, for the way their predecessors treated Martin Luther, and we know that the Gunpowder Plot was not exactly a planned hit by “anarchists” a plot hatched by Jesuits….BUT…

But we also know that thousands of Catholic clergy joined thousands of Lutheran clergy in protest against the abuses of the regime.

We also know that plenty of monasteries and convents joined other Christians in giving refuge to Jews and Gypsies and other persecuted persons.

We also know that there were thousands of Christians that joined the Jews in prison camps and executions.

We also know that the Pope that the professional Holocaust industry tycoons vilify so much issued an order to all his clergy in Germany to save as many Jews as possible.

We also know that that same Pope was honored and still is to this day in Israel as a “righteous Gentile“, a rare honor bestowed on certain Christians for their service to Jews.

We also know that the chief rabbi in Italy converted to Catholicism after seeing so much compassion from so many Catholics.

We know that millions of Catholics, Methodists, Baptists, Pentecostals, Mormons, and soldiers from all the other Christian doctrines as well, fought alongside Jews against Hitler to stop the Holocaust.

We know that Hitler may have earlier been a nominal “Catholic” in name only, but we also know that he vowed to wipe Christianity out completely as a “bastard child” of Judaism, and replace it with the paganism of the old Teutonic gods.

We know that the SS was an occult organization that held pagan ceremonies to promote officers.

It’s amazing how prophetic George Orwell‘s book “1984″ is, for the rewriting of history.

 

Contraception rule is attack on freedom, distracts from hated nationalized medicine

And it is a brilliant attempt to divide the clergy from the parishioners too.

I had to answer this backwards, upside-down view of the forced-contraception-coverage rule:

http://kepdavis.wordpress.com/2012/02/21/contraception-is-not-about-women/

In my doctrine as a Christian the woman herself with her man should use or not contraception “according to her faith”, although every conception is a gift.

That said, a person has no natural right to forcibly take the goods of another or the fruits of their labor. The cost for providing contraception will not be free no matter how they word some stupid rule, but the semantic acrobatics in the “compromise” fully expose the semantic bankruptcy of the whole thing. If you want the truth, you can see it. The insurance companies will charge the cost to its customers, even if it’s hidden inside all the rest of its overhead of doing business. Everybody knows this. Everyone.

My right to the free exercise of religion does not give me the “right” to take your money to support my pastor, or my religion, or for any other of my own purposes, no matter how sacred a right it is. Especially if it’s against your own religious doctrine, whatever it is, whether you’re a Catholic, Presbyterian, Jew, Moslem, or atheist, even if your doctrine says women should have a “right” to contraception.

THE RULE IS A SCAM TO DIVERT ATTENTION FROM WHAT AMERICANS HATE.

The whole ridiculous forced contraception coverage rule is a scam anyway.

It’s meant to distract from the most outrageous violations of liberty since the Congress ceded a currency monopoly to a cartel of private bankers, the Federal Reserve, ruled by the kings of Wall Street.

The people of America HATED and still HATE the TARP bailouts that continued from the Bush era to the Obama administration, they HATE the secrecy of who got what money, they HATE the coverup on who got what, they HATE the “stimulus” that only stimulated more DEBT, they HATE the deficits that BOTH parties have pushed upwards for decades even though most of them don’t realize the national debt is a theft from the poor and middle class. They HATE the Patriot Act and the NDAA and SOPA and PIPA and ACTA and they HATE the fact the president wants the power to finger anybody he wants to in the whole world for indefinite detention, secretly, and for assassination. And they HATED this nationalization of centralized control over the best medical care system known to the entire world, bar none, despite the warts caused mostly by government meddling itself.

Nationalizing the medical industry and private care is an intrusive assault on privacy, the right recognized, not “given”, in the 4th Amendment, to “BE secure in” our private affairs from intrusive monitoring by government:

4th Amendment: “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

That’s besides the fact that the whole thing violates the 10th amendment that forbids the federal government from any authority that is not expressly given in the Constitution.

Defining state markets as interstate markets for the purpose of micro-managing our lives, as was one of the excuses in a recent debate on CSPAN on the subject, has no boundaries. Every intra-state market in any good or service, under that ridiculously expansive justification, might affect the market in another state, and –hello?– that is good, that is the whole idea!

States and nations should compete with each other, they should not have to follow the same centralized economic planning dictates, a practice which has proven time after time and time again to totally brutalize the poorest of the poor that is cynically used to justify their economic and political oppression!

 

White House claim that 98% of Catholic women use contraception a ‘damned lie’: Lutheran author

White House claim that 98% of Catholic women use contraception a ‘damned lie’: Lutheran author | LifeSiteNews.com:
http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/white-house-claim-that-98-of-catholic-women-use-contraception-a-damned-lie

Never mind that the statistic is irrelevant to an individual’s right to religious freedom and his right to be free of dictatorship anyway.

Hemingway cites an analysis by writer Lydia McGrew, who observes that the study was designed to measure contraceptive use exclusively among women who would have some reason to use contraception.

Because of this, it included only women of child-bearing age, and excluded those who were celibate, pregnant, post-partum, or trying to get pregnant.

McGrew points out that unmarried Catholic women who are faithful to the Church’s teachings are disproportionately more likely to be celibate, and married Catholic women faithful to the Church’s teachings are disproportionately more likely to be pregnant, post-partum, trying to get pregnant, or simply not trying to avoid pregnancy.

For those who are trying to paint a picture that Catholic women do not follow the teaching of their church on contraception, “these statistics are bogus,” she says.

However, she also points out, at the end of the day, the statistic is actually irrelevant.

“If a bunch of Quakers turn out to have gun licenses, employees of an expressly Quaker organization are not therefore entitled to have their fees paid to a shooting range or their ammo provided at no cost through an employer plan,” writes McGrew.

Catholic Charities Denies Endorsement Of Obama Administration’s Contraceptive Coverage Policy | Fox News
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/02/15/catholic-charity-group-denies-endorsement-contraceptive-coverage-policy/

In the years before President Nixon ended the draft in the United States, when the draft was in full force at the height of the Vietnam War, an individual could opt out of mandatory military service by claiming a religious objection, or even a conscientious objection.

But now, you can’t even get out of a measly little charge for contraceptive coverage in insurance policies, because insurance companies are going to pass on the charge for the coverage as part of their own cost to provide the policy, because the Commander-in-Chief has issued a mandate! And that’s an order! Or else!

And the rights of not only clergy but all lay persons are being assaulted with this. Some may think it a little thing, but there has to be line drawn in the sand somewhere. The Obama administration is talking like they only have to respect the religious freedom of religious organizations (for awhile longer) but the truth of the matter is the Catholic Church has no inherent right to religious freedom at all, it only “inherits” it from the individuals who are members or their faithful, whether clergy or not!

And don’t believe the spin that it’s just the Catholic bishops fighting this. It’s just another round in the attacks on religious freedom.

And add another idiotic outrage: The anti-faith crowd is yelling it the wrong way around, saying that it is Catholic bishops pushing for recognition for an organization as a person! A top-down mandate, an order from your Ruler-In-Chief, to insurance companies to include the cost of providing contraceptives –including some abortifacients– as one of their base costs of doing business, and passing that cost to all buyers including those who have a religious or conscientious objection to it.

This shot across the bow was meant to look like a little thing, and take advantage of the confusion that some of the electorate is in about the abortifacients they call “contraceptives”.

But most of all, in my opinion, the purpose was a sneaky attempt to drive a wedge between Catholic laypersons and Catholic clergy. Witness the often-repeated droning chant that supposedly 98% of Catholic lay women use contraceptives.

That figure may or may not be right, but it is irrelevant. For one thing, even if it right, the 2% have much more of a right as individuals to religious freedom as the 98% has to our money.

Never mind the bigger issue that even though our political rulers have been accelerating their assault on respect for the Constitution and for the rights therein for over 100 years, this entire nationalization of the medical industry is one of the most flagrant.

Republicans have to share the blame too. They also have been flaunting the Constitution themselves with undeclared wars and their own unconstitutional expansions of redistribution programs –robbing wealth from one subject of the realm to give to the other subject of the realm.

If you “love thy neighbor as thyself”, you won’t want to rob him to help the homeless. You might ask him to help please, but a tax is where you bring the entire body of police to force it out of him. Makes the extortion look good when the gang can claim that most of the neighborhood is doing the robbing (eh, “taxing”).

 

Even liberals and atheists are outraged at this attack on religious freedom

February 10, 2012

Let’s hope the outrage lasts:

How much is too much, people?

When are Americans going to get sick and tired of getting told what to do in every moment of their lives in everything they do? Where is the limit?

We have federal legislation crammed down our throats against the will and demand of 70 percent of Americans that abdicated legislative authority to a federal branch of government, carte blanche to make up laws as they go along, and now they have made a rule that violates the First Amendment.

Read our lips, read the Constitution: The First Amendment says ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, NOTHING! about any COMPROMISE of religious freedom.

Somebody complained to me about the “In God We Trust” motto the other day! As if it were a law that established religion! What religion, I asked her, which one? The Catholic? The Protestant?

Egads. Then they answer “the Christian religion“! The Judeo-Christian religion, as if!

It’s an abomination as a motto on the currency anyway. In God we (as the USA) do NOT trust!

Obviously with this outrage it’s not just we do not trust God as a nation, our high-and-mighty rulers are telling us we have to put our money where their mouth is and pay for things we do not agree with.

Before I go on, let me say that in my doctrine, I do think it’s better for couples (and women) to have faith in God for the children he permits with conception, but it’s also “According to your faith be it done unto you”. In other words, I don’t think chemical contraceptive methods violate Biblical faith.

However, when one man’s religious freedom is attacked, it is ALL of us who are being violated including atheists! The ACLU protests when a PRIVATE party expresses itself with a symbol of faith in public land, in cases where NOT ONE PENNY of government money is expended for it, and in fact they force governments to spend MILLIONS of dollars keeping crosses out of public parks.

So now you have a decree from federal dictators that says you have to spend private money to limit your own private free exercise of your religion.

And they act like the First Amendment only applies to cloisters that are almost nunneries and monasteries.

If the United States accepts this forcing of payments on people without allowing free exercise then it’s a lost cause and America is dead, dead, dead, and there is no chance of recuperating it. That and the whole federal nationalization of medicine.

Revelation 17 and 18. No wonder.
