7 Quick Takes Friday (set #99)

7 Quick Takes Friday

This week: Abortion workers from other “clinics” tell how Dr. Kermit Gosnell is not an isolated case. Bioethicist Father Robert Gahl reflects on this case. Megyn Kelly interviews Jack McMahon, Gosnell’s attorney. What a “shacking out cohabitation ceremony” might look like. The drama and terror of some family events. A contraption to dispense communion. Ever wonder how minor car dents are repaired?

Repeat after me: “Dr. Kermit Gosnell is not an isolated case.”

This is what abortion is. Frankly, I do not understand why people are outraged that these doctors are killing babies after they leave the womb. It is absolutely no difference to the child which side they are killed on.

Fewer and fewer people are getting married. (I won’t even get into the whole gay agenda to redefine and kill it.) Of those who get married, it is obvious that many do not understand the covenant. So, this is often the arrangement:

Family get togethers. Oh, the drama.

Other than Lutherans and Anglicans (/Episcopalians), Protestants believe communion is only symbolic and do not receive it weekly, if at all. No offense meant, but since they lack valid Holy Orders we (Catholics / Orthodox) know it can not truly become the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of our Lord. It is a good thing however, that they receive communion as best they can. Still, this is a bit sacrilegious is it not?

This contraption is called a Purity Host Dispenser from a company named Purity Solutions. Don’t look for this at your local parish any time soon. This was spotted by The Ironic Catholic.

Did you ever wonder how dents are repaired in cars these days? Usually they don’t require filler, sanding and repainting. This video shows how it is done:

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. I’ve seen that cohabitation video and my sister got offended when I showed it to her since she see’s nothing wrong with that. #6 that is weird and interesting at the same time. It looks like something germaphobes made so less people were touching the hosts.

  2. #6: Just about every one of my Catholic friends tagged me when they shared that video on Facebook. My first thought (since they were showing the tray of individual communion glasses that get referred to as “the holy shot glasses”) is that this is Communion for germophobes.

  3. The best part of the cohabitation video: “In the name of sex, options, and selfishness”
