You have GOT to be kidding me!

How does Cardinal Mahony keep his job? He (and the knucklehead in Orange County) are not running fingerprint/FBI background checks on volunteers like they said they would who have contact with children if that person is an illegal alien.

They promise to supervise them closely and get two letters of reccomendation. Letters from who? Their coyotoes?

This reneging on policy will look great in front of juries who will eventually hear about the child molestation cover-ups implemented by Mahony.

Maybe the archdicoese can change their school slogan to "A Catholic Education is a Scarring for Life."

Morons... Dangerous morons!

There has been an uproar over the Clark County (NV) School District's decision to cut off the microphone of a valedictorian because her speech deviated from the approved copy. She, apparently since I cannot find the actual speecn, went beyond a mere mention of God and wandered into an area that some considered to prosletyzing. The decision to shut off her mic mid-speech was based on the concept of seperation of church and state since it was a public hign school graduation.

1) The District was wrong (regardless of what the S.C. said in the 1960's) as it was clear she was speaking for herself and not on behalf on the district. She was not a government representative advocating the establishment of an official religion. That was and is obvious to any sane person.

2) She was wrong to focus so much of the speech on herself. The proper role of the valedictorian is to speak not only for herself but, and even more so, on behalf of her class. Self-serving valedictorian speeches are boring if not irritating; and, in her case, a far cry from being humble. So much for her Christian ethics.

... are doomed to repeat it!

The Drudge Report (at the time of this writing) has a headline that reads "Will the USA Intercept?" referring to North Korea's planned test launch of a nuclear missile rocket. North Korea got to this point by lying to the Clinton Administration during negotiations about dismantling its nuclear rocket program.

Meanwhile, the Bush Administration is using the same negotiation strategy with another member of the Axis of Evil, Iran.

Those who don't study and learn from history...

Catholic = Universal. Really?

Today's Los Angeles Times reports on the vote of the U.S.C.C.B. to approve changes in the English translation of the Mass that are more accurate and more in-line with transaltions into other languages. That, in and of itself is a positive. However, the clever liguists still miss the point.

Bishop Arthur Roche of Leeds, England stated, "If the bishops of the English-speaking countries can agree on a single version of the Mass, what a sign of catholicity that will be."

How about having all Masses prayed in Latin? What a sign of catholicity that would be!

Damned Code

My workplace (a public high school) had a project where one student took a picture of another one reading, and the picture was blown up into a pro-reading poster for posting in the library and, possibly, some classrooms. Our principal encouraged this process by appearing in one of the posters holding a book. So far so goodl... but the book he is proudly holding is the Da Vinci code, the book that is slanderous to the Catholic Church and Opus Dei in particular and all Christians in general.

This particular poster is posted in the trophy case at the entrance to the main office. My personal complaint about working in a religiously hostile environment has fallen on deaf ears.

I wonder if he will take time to read this? I doubt it.

And the secular attack on faith and religion marches on.


The Lost Treasures of Our Sacred Places

With demographic shifts, economic problems, and Protestant architecture on the rise in the Catholic dioceses of the Northeast, more and more churches are being gutted and their parts sold. Sold not to other churches, but to casinos, restaurants, pubs etc.

Shouldn't the faithful of the west coast be allowed first crack at these items... oops! I forgot I mentioned the Protestant influence. Perhaps the Knights of Columbus could intervene.

More mutliculturalist nonsense

Click on the title for the left's view on the grandson of immigrants attempt to stand up for English. If only there were a Geno's cheesesteak franchise in Los Angeles so that I could order and savor my sandwich while describing its taste in English.
