The United Nations has been apparently joined the war against religious freedom. They are demanding nothing less than changes to core Catholic doctrine. This, of course, is in promotion of abortion and homosexuality. If you are Catholic or simply pro-life or pro-family, please sign the Declaration in Support of the Holy See at the United Nations:

More about this is on the C-FAM (Catholic Family & Human Rights Institute) website in the piece: Vatican Blasts UN Committee That Asks Church To Change Teaching on Abortion and Homosexuality.

Obama Pelosi Kiss

Nancy Pelosi (self-described “devout Catholic”) is being awarded Planned Parenthood’s highest recognition for decades of rabid promotion of abortion “leadership, excellence, and outstanding contributions”. This is well deserved recognition of her tireless efforts (to maximize innocent human carnage). Townhall has the story: Pelosi to Receive Planned Parenthood’s Highest Award.

Girl Scouts Tears

The American Life League reminds us all of the steady drift of Girl Scouts away from the ideals we fondly remember and toward something far less honorable. I wrote about them a while back (Loss of innocence) and things have only worsened since then. There are excellent, far superior alternatives for your children. Read Paul Rondeau’s Pro-life leaders launch boycott of Girl Scouts Cookies over ‘radicalized’ agenda at LifeSiteNews.

Cookie suggestion: don’t buy any. Instead, make a contribution to your local Girl Scout council in support of your relatives, neighbors and friends who ask. The local council will then get 100% of your money vs. only pennies. This cuts the radical, national organization out of the loop.

Not all prophesy is religious. Some is political. Actually, maybe this following video is not so much prophesy as a statement of fact. We are in a slow moving train wreck, suspect something is up, and don’t know how to stop it. Choosing our leadership is not a try this then try that affair. The damage is far more permanent than many understand.

I am way too old for this, but it looks really fun:

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!
