ENDNOTE: Massachusetts wants a parish fish fry to be considered “secular?

2016-Sep-24

 
Dear CV Friend,

Massachusetts wants a parish fish fry to be considered “secular.”

Why does this matter?

Because if a fish fry is a “secular” activity, then the religious organization hosting the fish fry loses its freedoms.

That means Massachusetts would remove religious freedom exemptions when religious people or organizations do anything that is not considered inherently “religious.” A parish could only host a fish fry if they have bathrooms which accommodate transgendered persons.    

The official Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination’s Gender Identity Guidance released just last week said:


Even a church could be seen as a place of public accommodation if it holds a secular event, such as a spaghetti supper, that is open to the general public.
Whatever happened to our First Amendment right to religious liberty?

This latest proposal is exactly the reason why I wrote this short pamphlet Catholic… or Criminal? 8 Real Threats to Your Religious Freedom.

The threats to our religious freedom are real. You deserve to know what is happening in our country. And so does everyone you know. We have to get the word out ASAP.

That’s why I want to mail you this pamphlet — or several copies of it — as soon as possible.

Click here to get your copy of Catholic… or Criminal? 8 Real Threats to Your Religious Freedom!

Just look how aggressive Secular Elites have become in trying to force Americans — including faithful Catholics — to conform to their worldview. Just recently, the ACLU decided to sue Catholic hospitals to force doctors and nurses to perform abortions. Government employees, even volunteers, have been fined and jailed — in the United States of America. It’s simply outrageous what is happening!

This is why we are fighting together for religious freedom. But first, it’s important to get the truth out. Everyone must know the facts about the real attacks on our religious freedom happening right now…

Help us distribute copies of this powerful pamphlet to Catholics across America!

Education is everything. If everyone who receives this email distributes just 20 of these pamphlets to concerned friends and family, we’ll go a long way toward making sure the Catholic vote is informed about the attacks on religious freedom in our country as we speed toward the November elections.

Sure, I’ll help distribute 20 pamphlets!

Thank you for your dedication to freedom.

For Life,

 
 
Brian
 
P.S. If you would like to order more than 20 copies of the pamphlet to distribute to your parish, or to friends and family, contact Monica at info@catholicvote.org.

For those that say “religion is not under attack”, I offer this as an example.

The “Secular Progressives” will not stop until Gooferment is KING over all things.

Feel free to ignore it, but Socialism, aka Communism Lite, is on the march.

Look at the male “refugees” streaming into Europe and immediately getting on the dole.

Obviously, the first step is to eliminate Gooferment Welfare. (It’s a trap to brainwash folks into relying upon the Gooferment!)

ENDNOTE: Why men won’t get married anymore — the result of feminism

Why men won’t get married anymore: Women complain chaps today won’t settle down. Sorry, ladies, but it’s all your fault, argues a wickedly provocative new book

A controversial new book argues that the triumph of feminism has meant men are now second-class citizens. 

*** end quote ***

Well, the “social engineers” know best! Right.

Not surprising that boys see men so poorly treated in so many ways that they silently have revolted.

And, society is much worse off for it.

In Japan, neither the girls, nor the boys, see any reason to settle down and raise a family.

The result is a nation that’s dying out by failing to reproduce.

Argh!

And, you know that the socialists at the UN are happy because humans are a plague on “mother earth”.

Sigh!

ENDNOTE: What are your “defaults”?

Set It and Forget It: How Default Settings Rule the World
The many ways we act by default (without even knowing it).
by Lena Groeger ProPublica, July 27, 2016, 8 a.m.

*** begin quote ***

In the U.S. when you register for your driver’s license, you’re asked whether or not you’d like to be an organ donor. We operate on an opt-in basis: that is, the default is that you are not an organ donor. If you want to donate your organs, you need to actively check a box on the DMV questionnaire. Only about 40 percent of the population is signed up to be an organ donor.

In other countries such as Spain, Portugal and Austria, the default is that you’re an organ donor unless you explicitly choose not to be. And in many of those countries over 99 percent of the population is registered. A recent study found that countries with opt-out or “presumed consent” policies don’t just have more people who sign up to be donors, they also have consistently higher numbers of transplants.

*** end quote ***

I’m an organ donor only because I am trying to “sneak into” Heaven.

Seriously, if what I no longer have use for can help someone else, then why not.

Over and above that, I’m going to start looking at “my defaults”. They may be more important than any of my many faults.

Maybe I can remind you all to select recycling “your parts”?

ENDNOTE: An old, white bigot disconnects from his alma mater

Alumni Strike: Fed up with political correctness alumni across the country aren’t giving anymore
By Nick Sorrentino on August 14, 2016

*** begin quote ***

(From AEI)

Scott MacConnell cherishes the memory of his years at Amherst College, where he discovered his future métier as a theatrical designer. But protests on campus over cultural and racial sensitivities last year soured his feelings. Now Mr. MacConnell, who graduated in 1960, is expressing his discontent through his wallet. In June, he cut the college out of his will. “As an alumnus of the college, I feel that I have been lied to, patronized and basically dismissed as an old, white bigot who is insensitive to the needs and feelings of the current college community,” Mr. MacConnell, 77, wrote in a letter to the college’s alumni fund in December, when he first warned that he was reducing his support to the college to a token $5 …

… Alumni from a range of generations say they are baffled by today’s college culture. Among their laments: Students are too wrapped up in racial and identity politics. They are allowed to take too many frivolous courses. They have repudiated the heroes and traditions of the past by judging them by today’s standards rather than in the context of their times. Fraternities are being unfairly maligned, and men are being demonized by sexual assault investigations. And university administrations have been too meek in addressing protesters whose messages have seemed to fly in the face of free speech.

Scott C. Johnston, who graduated from Yale in 1982, said he was on campus last fall when activists tried to shut down a free speech conference, “because apparently they missed irony class that day.” He recalled the Yale student who was videotaped screaming at a professor, Nicholas Christakis, that he had failed “to create a place of comfort and home” for students in his capacity as the head of a residential college.

*** end quote ***

Yes, perhaps that will get these “schools” attention.

Do we really need them any more?

It seems like homeschoolers and the internet are taking their place.

See who wins the various “bees”.

And where is the “good work” on human progress being done?

Argh!

ENDNOTE: The Establishment didn’t pick Trump!

The More the Establishment Freaks Out Over Trump, the More Attractive He Becomes

*** begin quote ***

Trump is attractive precisely because the Establishment fears and loathes him because 1) they didn’t pick him and 2) he might upset the neoconservative Empire that the Establishment elites view as their global entitlement.

The Establishment is freaking out about Donald Trump for one reason: they didn’t pick him.

The Establishment is freaking out because the natural order of things is that we pick the presidential candidates and we run the country to serve ourselves, i.e. the financial-political elites.Donald Trump’s candidacy upsets this neofeudal natural order, and thus he (and everyone who supports him) is anathema to the Establishment, heretics who must be silenced, cowed, marginalized, mocked and ultimately put back in their place as subservient debt-serfs.

*** end quote ***

Trump is  the prettiest horse in the glue factory coral.

And, he dared to suggest peace with Russia and end NATO.

That already is progress.

If he can stop the current Middle East blundering around “drone-ing” everything, then maybe it can settle down/

Catholic Church Gives Pro-Abortion Tim Kaine a Standing Ovation

On Sunday, Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine was given a standing ovation by his Catholic parish, California Catholic Daily reported. While his fellow parishioners are celebrating him as Hillary Clinton’s pro-abortion running mate, many Catholics are speaking out against him because of his position on abortion.

<Expletive Deleted>!

This story made me say a bad word.

“ABORTION”!

<<<Stop the presses. I’ve bumped the endnote that I had scheduled for this one! I’m enraged.>>>

No wonder today’s “catholics” are confused.

The leadership is sadly lacking. 

Pedophile priests, CINO politicians, and no one stands up for any principles.

I’ve stopped contributing to send a message!

Will anything get through.

Argh!

ENDNOTE: Is not suing the correct action?

The parents who didn’t sue Disney taught America a powerful lesson
By Naomi Schaefer Riley July 23, 2016 | 2:57pm

*** begin quote ***

Remember the Serenity Prayer?

“God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can, And wisdom to know the difference.”

Maybe we should put it up not just in homes and churches, but over the doors of our courthouses. Because Americans seem to not know the difference anymore.

This week brought news that the parents of a senior at Leon High School in Florida are threatening to sue the school if their daughter doesn’t make the varsity cheerleading squad. The school, which was state runner up in the non-tumbling division at the National High School Cheerleading Championship last year, has a very competitive team. When the young woman, whom the district has not yet identified, fell twice during her tryouts, the coaches decided she didn’t make the cut. Which is when her parents decided it was time to consult a lawyer.

It’s not clear whether the parents have found a “right to be part of a human pyramid” in the US Constitution, but just the threat of litigation is enough to make even the most inefficient bureaucracy spring into action. And so the school district is reviewing the decision of the cheerleading judges.

Contrast the actions of the cheerleading parents with those of 2-year-old Lane Graves, the toddler who died when he was attacked by an alligator while playing next to a pond at Disney World last month. The Nebraska family announced this week that they were not going to sue Disney for this tragedy.

How else does one correct a corporation’s bad behavior?

Sorry, but in this case, maybe they should have sued. The disappointed cheerleader is stupid!

Argh!
