Megan McCain is the future....

the horrid future predicted by Pope Paul VI in his encyclical letter Humanae Vitae; the future of an anti-life culture.
We think of Megan less as the new face of the GOP and more like the Poster Child for the 1930 Lambeth Conference of the Anglican Church.
Her self-centeredness, cult of self, "I am the Celebrity I imagine myself to be" is the natural by-product of a culture which embraces recreational sex, the homosexual lifestyle, and all manner of anti-family and anti-child policies.

Some thoughts on the Savage Thing

A shout out to brother Michael Savage, the flame throwing talk show host who has spread the pro-life message to areas most pro-lifers can only dream of reaching. Need we add that we don’t always agree with brother Michael? Of course, one suspects he doesn’t always agree with himself, which is why he is such a rarity in the talko-sphere - a radio talk show host who is capable of changing his mind every now and then. Wow!
He does stream of consciousness like no one else, and gives the public a pure breath of fresh air straight from the soul of that long lost island nation of County Queens, the memory of which lives on in the Savage Nation.
Is it a coincidence that Jacqui Smith, the official United Kingdom gatekeeper, has banned Savage from setting foot in not-so-Great Britain at the same time United States Homeland Security has also labeled all pro-life Americans as terrorist suspects? Certainly not. The culture of death is on the march and wants to silence any voices it finds too effective. Its aim, pure and simple, is to marginalize and financially cripple anyone who speaks out , and to use any means at their disposal, fair or foul.
While there are times we wish Savage was more civil in his discourse, less biting in his mockery, more charitable in his assessment of his opponents, one can sympathize with his outbursts when we see how clearly he has to deal with vicious political hacks like British Homeland Jacqui Smith.
For those who wonder why we had an America revolution – one need look no further than Britain’s current attitude towards this outspoken American upstart. Everything old is new again. And as in that first Revolution , they might find that this peaceful Revolution of ideas, being fought so effectively by General Savage, could bring the current British system, stepped in the culture of death and seemingly so secure, tumbling down.

To Be or Not To Be

"If we as individuals are not willing to accept the burdens" of the Catholic witness to the right to life, "we are not worthy of the name Catholic."

White Rose Notre Dame - We are your bad conscience

"Why do German people behave so apathetically in the face of all these abominable crimes, crimes so unworthy of the human race? ... The German people slumber on in their dull, stupid sleep and encourage these fascist criminals.." -From the White Rose Leaflet # 2
Notre Dame Response Demonstration, the White Rose of our century.
"ND Response has received official permission to hold a prayerful and constructive demonstration on the South Quad of the University of Notre Dame between 11am and 4pm on the day of Commencement. The students of this coalition would like to extend an invitation to all those interested in joining us on campus on May 17th as we respectfully give witness to Notre Dame's Catholic identity and pro-life principles." Details here.

"We will not be silent. We are your bad conscience. The White Rose will not leave you in peace!" - Motto of White Rose

Coincidentally Speaking

2 interesting tidbits from the Spirit & Life: Human Life International e-newsletter:
"The swine flu scare was "officially" announced on Friday, the 24th of April. .... However - and this is the connection - it was also on April 24th, two years ago to the day that abortion was legalized in Mexico City."
"... our HLI affiliate in Mexico told us about another very curious effect of the epidemic: namely, that the pro-abortion Minister of Health, Dr. José Angel Córdova, who was scheduled to fly to the United States this week to receive an award for his role in getting abortion legalized in Mexico City, had to cancel his trip in order to attend to the disaster before him."
