**Sex Ed Vatican Style via the Pontifical Council for the Family: According to American Life League, the council “recently released this project that consists of unit studies and discussions for coed classrooms. The program:

  • Asks a mixed class to "point out where sexuality is located in boys and girls."
  • Asks a mixed class to discuss the question: "What does the word sex suggest to you?"
  • Discusses "the process of arousal."
  • Explains that "heterosexuality" is something "to be discover[ed]."
  • Suggests R-rated movies with nudity and explicit sex scenes as catalysts for discussion.

“On top of this scandalous approach, the program never addresses biblical and traditional principles such as the 10 Commandments or Christ's teaching on marriage.”

To make matters worse, the head of the Council that approved this abomination, Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, was also recently made head of the Pontifical Academy for Life, and the Pontifical John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family. [Hmm…what’s wrong with this picture? Is nobody worried about corruption of the young? This is just an extension of the sex abuse problem only now it’s official Vatican policy! And remember that sex ed Planned Parenthood style is one of the reasons we have a serious contraception and abortion problem. The Vatican is losing all credibility.]

***Gender Insanity Escalates in Albuquerque NM
As if the bathroom wars aren’t crazy enough, school administrators at Carlos Rey Elementary School in Albuquerque, NM recently sent a “Gender Identity Procedural Directive” to teachers forbidding them from using the words “boys and girls” in the classroom. Parents are outraged [which just proves none of them are fit to rear their own children]. Will the next battle be with child protective services accusing parents of abuse for imposing a specific gender on their children? Not inconceivable these days is it? Homeschooling, anyone?

***Suicide tourists head to Belgium for lethal dose
Years ago we wrote a spoof article here about “exit clinics” where people could go to kill themselves after a nice final meal. Little did we realize how accurate we were. Today assisted suicide is readily available in Holland, Belgium, and Switzerland. In 2015, Belgium killed over 2,000 suicide seekers. Belgium is popular because patients can get free death injections there with their European Union Health Insurance Card. Often patients come to Belgium expecting to be dead within a week. Consider what that means. They arrive in a foreign country, a doctor they’ve never seen before meets them and agrees to off them. What kind of counseling can these individuals possibly be getting? How can a physician know whether they are simply suffering from temporary depression that will lift with proper medication and treatment? Whatever happened to the medical ethic, “First, do no harm?”

***Euthanasia Marketplace Expanding in U.S. Five states have legalized assisted suicide: Washington, Oregon, California, Montana, and Vermont. Many others are considering legalization. The euthanasia movement, like the abortion and homosexual lobbies, will probably end up achieving their agenda through the courts. Another Roe or Doe case will likely mandate the “right to choose” suicide in every state in the country. And then, of course, forced euthanasia (like forced abortion) will follow. C’mon, Granny, time for your appointment at Sunset Shadows. You’ll have such a good time there. You get to watch your favorite movie, Dial M for Murder as you fall asleep. Oh, and sign here. We took the liberty of updating your will.

***While we’re talking about killing centers… Washington, D.C. just opened a new mega Planned Parenthood on August 26th several blocks northeast of Union Station near Gallaudet University and only a few miles from Catholic and Trinity Universities and the national office of the Unites States Conference of Catholic Bishops. It’s smack dab in a blighted area of the city with lots of graffiti and many low impoverished minorities – typical location for Margaret Sanger’s goal of ridding the world of “human weeds.” No doubt the health offices at the local universities will be in contact with the killing giant and, perhaps Trinity, which claims to be Catholic, will encourage students to do internships with PP. In view of their history, that would not be surprising!

***In fact, Trinity’s Awful Internships Continue. Checking jobs/internships on the Trinity website we found these: “Internships for the week of August 16 - Hillary Clinton Campaign Opportunity -The Hillary Clinton Campaign, based in NOVA with territory in DC and VA, is currently hiring fellows for the campaign. Students are expected to commit to at least 15 hours a week from now until Election Day. For more information or to apply, please contact (deleted).” “ Career opportunities for the week of May 9th” - NARAL Pro Choice – PR – Community Outreach & Communication Intern – summer 2016 - NARAL Pro-Choice Maryland (NPCM), the state’s largest grassroots pro-choice organization, has been working to protect choice for over 30 years. NPCM is seeking a Community Outreach and Communications Intern to assist with community outreach and education, help with online outreach efforts, and learn the inner workings of a non-profit organization.”

These are just two examples from a list that included opportunities working for many “progressive” groups. No wonder. Just read the “President’s blog” to see Patricia McGuire’s bias. She posts gushing accolades to Hillary Clinton and excoriates Donald Trump. Where are the “separation of Church and state” Nazis when you need them? I guess doing politics is no problem as long as you are canonizing a liberal.

***Gender Agenda #1: The Hell with Free Speech
This report comes from California Catholic Daily 8/23/16. “The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in San Francisco again upheld California’s controversial Senate Bill 1172. SB 1172 bars licensed counselors from assisting youth who want to change or reduce same-sex attractions. The law also prohibits counseling that would steer youth away from gender confusion.

“Pacific Justice Institute filed suit against SB 1172 in 2012 and initially won a preliminary injunction based on free speech. Eventually, the Ninth Circuit created a new approach to free speech that deemed what was said during counseling to be unprotected.”

No free speech for counselors and pastors. The homosexual/gender agenda trumps psychiatric medicine and patient’s wishes. So a minor can choose to mutilate himself to pretend to be the opposite sex, but can’t ask a counselor to help him overcome his gender confusion. I wonder if they will go after priests in the confessional for counseling minors on “gender” struggles. Seems likely.

***High School Students Dissect Fetal Brains. Sounds like something out of a horror movie, but it’s been confirmed by Dr. Paul Roth, University of New Mexico’s chancellor of the Health Sciences Center and dean of the School of Medicine.Students attending a summer camp dissected fetal brains from aborted babies! [Really! Was this – vampire camp?]

According to Operation Rescue, “On June 23, 2016, the [U.S. House] Select Panel [on Infant Lives] issued a291-page letterto New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas referring UNM and Southwestern Women’s Options for criminal charges related to their fetal organ procurement arrangement that violated state laws.

“In that letter, Rep. Marsha Blackburn, who chairs the Select Panel, referenced the fact that in May 2012, someone at UNMHSC had ‘asked clinic for digoxin treated tissue 24-28 weeks for methylation study + because [redacted] wants whole, fixed brains to dissect w/ summer camp students. Clinic est. 27 and 28 weeks.’” See http://www.operationrescue.org/archives/video-confession-unm-official-confirms-that-aborted-baby-brains-were-dissected-by-high-school-students/

***Can Red Cross Ban Free Speech in Shelters? Louisiana’s devastating floods brought many out to encourage and help devastated victims. Many have lost their homes, cars, in fact everything. Now they’ve lost their right to free speech if it happens to be Christian. Despite their logo, Red Cross shelters asked Captain Clay Higgens, a Louisiana police officer, to leave a Lafayette shelter for carrying a Bible and praying with victims of the flood and volunteer workers. Here’s how a FOX News reporter described the incident:

At some point during the visit a volunteer approached Higgins and mentioned there was a problem. “He said the Red Cross had an issue with me being there,” Higgins said. “So I asked him what the problem was. He looked down at my Bible and he gestured and said, ‘They have a problem with that.’” Higgins said he was escorted to a Red Cross supervisor who asked him to leave. “I was told that the Red Cross does not allow spiritual counseling in their shelters,” he said. “The supervisor told me the Red Cross is not a religious-based organization and they don’t allow religious interaction with the residents.”

During the conversation, a flood victim asked Higgins to pray. The captain was obliged but had to do so outside the Red Cross shelter. “Christian compassion was not welcomed there in the manner I had provided,” Higgins told me….

Meanwhile, a pastor in the town of Albany told me that four families left a Red Cross shelter after they were told they could not pray or read their Bibles at their cots. “They got upset and literally packed up their stuff and came right here,” said the pastor, who asked not to be identified. “A Red Cross worker told them they could not pray or read their Bible in public.” The pastor said he drove to the shelter in question and he was immediately met with individuals who related similar stories.

“I hadn’t even made it in the door,” the pastor said. “They said the Red Cross workers told them they could not pray or read Bibles. I told them to go to their cot and pray and read. I told them they’re on church property and they could read a Bible on church property.”

***Captain Clay Higgins, an American Folk Hero is described as the “Cajun John Wayne.” Check out this street cop on YouTube. He has crime stopper videos like nothing you’ve ever seen. He recently resigned his position and is running for Congress in November. He’s pro-life and pro-family and recognizes the danger of Islam. The man has common sense, all too uncommon these days.
