St. Patrick’s Day flash mob:

The good people over at CatholicVote.org have produced another great video. Actually, they didn’t do much at all. They simply took a camera and recorded Planned Parenthood supporters. What more needs to be said?

There is an exciting new development in the world of (secular) morality from the Australian Director of the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics. Professor Julian Savulescu has determined that it is our “moral obligation” to choose only the most intelligent embryos via IVF. Advanced ethical thinking combined with modern medicine will surely bring us all a brighter, happier tomorrow.

The Cardinal Newman Society is promoting Eucharistic Adoration through a campaign they call Adoration U. Thanks to Matthew Archbold at Creative Minority Report for the pointer:

Comrades, rejoice in more triumphs of socialized medicine! Baby Joseph is not a unique case. (He is the baby that the Canadian “healthcare” system did its level best to kill.) News now comes from the UK, of their “healthcare” system and a hospital born child found guilty of being born 12 days too early to qualify for care. He struggled for 46 minutes, shunned by the staff.

What is more outrageous from this congressperson – comparing American hero General David Petraeus‘ work to the antics of Charlie Sheen, or turning to Rolling Stone columnists for insight? Is this the representation the voters of Santa Rosa (Saint Rose) and San Rafael (Archangel Raphael) hoped for?

Saturday Evening Blog Post

Elizabeth Esther kindly hosts a feature she calls The Saturday Evening Blog Post. Published monthly every first Saturday, it features the best post in the preceding month on each of a few dozen Christian blogs. The “best” entries are chosen by the authors themselves (so they should know!).

It is a great way to discover new blogs. Be sure to check-it out. My entry for last month was my Reform the reform posts.

Some random thoughts or bits of information are worthy of sharing but don’t warrant their own full post. This idea was started by Jennifer Fulwiler at Conversion Diary to address this blogging need. So, some Fridays I too participate when I have accumulated 7 worthy items. Thank you Jen for hosting this project!


  1. That video with the pro-choicers is just disgusting. It disgusts me that there are evil enough people out there that think it's justifiable to support, perform, and have abortions. These people make me sick.

  2. Thanks for that video…it speaks for itself.
