Dear President Obama, please leave Africa out of your intolerant world of redefined marriage | LifeSiteNews.com


The following excerpts are from LifeSiteNews.com:

  • I believe that every design, good or bad, starts in the heart of the designer; every building plan arises in the imagination of the architect and every sculpture is conceived in the creative thoughts of the sculptor. 
  • It is becoming increasingly evident that a new design has been conceived in the imagination of the wealthiest class of social engineers and cultural architects in the Western world.  
  • The most terrifying and disconcerting thing about this reality is that when all is said and done and the new design is unveiled for all to see, it will many times demand the deconstruction of what has always been.  
  • It was with great shock that many people across the developing world received the recent ruling by the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) that reflected a tectonic shift in the perception and reception of marriage in America. This happened at the same time as the victory cries of LGBT rights advocates are resounding over France, UK, Australia and even parts of Latin America where the new world order is being established. In these parts of the world, the rulers and leaders are declaring, in an almost dictatorial manner, their unshakeable stance on the redefinition of marriage and reconfiguration of family structure through new legal mandates, new parliamentary moves and new executive manoeuvres.

Patriarch: sectarian militias could lead to Lebanon’s destruction : News Headlines - Catholic Culture

The following excerpts are from Catholic Culture's Catholic World News:

  • The Patriarch of the Maronite Catholic Church is warning that the rise of sectarian militias allied to other nations will destroy Lebanon.
  • “The Lebanese built their country on the basis of living together, preserving Lebanon against any loyalty to other nations of the East or the West,” said Cardinal Béchara Boutros Raï in reference to Lebanon’s 1943 National Pact, which assigned difference political offices to Christians and Muslims. Sectarian militias, he said, are leading to the “law of the jungle and an increase in crime.”

North Carolina House passes milder pro-life bill after governor’s veto threat | LifeSiteNews.com


The following excerpts are from LifeSiteNews.com:
  • The North Carolina House of Representatives has passed a new bill with greater safety regulations for abortion facilities by a vote of 74-41.
  • The House measure waters down a bill that passed the Senate yesterday, following a veto threat from the governor.
  • The original Senate bill, which passed 29-12, required offices that perform abortions to meet health regulations “similar to those for the licensure of ambulatory surgical centers.” It also mandated that doctors be “physically present” and "in the same room as the patient" throughout any surgical or chemical abortion. In effect, that would have ended the process of telemed abortions statewide.
  • It also included conscience protections and demands that the mother provide informed consent after receiving medically accurate information about abortion.
  • However, the proposed measures hit a brick wall when Governor Pat McCrory, a Republican, threatened to veto it unless “significant changes” were made.
  • In his 2012 campaign McCrory vowed not to sign any additional abortion restrictions into law, but said he may make an exception for this bill, which is a safety measure.
  • In response to the veto threat, House Republicans amended the bill and attached its provisions to a bill on motorcycle safety. The new bill asks state health officials to write rules "not unduly restricting access" to abortion.
[Call, email, or fax the Governor to sign SB353 into law.  His contact information can be found by clicking here.]

North Carolina Governor Threatens to Veto Pro-Life Bill, GOP Responds | LifeNews.com


The following excerpts are from LifeNews.com:

  • North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory said today he will veto a bill that would hold abortion facilities to stricter limits if the state legislature approves it and sends it to his desk.
  • Abortion backers oppose the bill because they say other abortion clinics may not be able to comply and could be forced to close down. Planned Parenthood said its four centers may be forced to close. The bill passed the Senate, 27-14.
  • The Family, Faith and Freedom Protection Act would place limits on the funding of abortions by any health plan that received public money, would require clinics to meet more stringent physical standards, would require doctors performing abortions to be physically present during the entire procedure, would ban the possibility of sex-selective abortion and fine abortion practitioners for doing such abortions. It would also allow any health care provider to not participate in abortion-related procedures.
  • McCrory’s office said the Republican governor would block the measure from taking effect “unless changes and clarifications are made addressing our concerns.”

Congregation of historic Catholic church near Walterboro shaken by theft of precious cargo – The Post and Courier

The following excerpts are from an article by Natalie Caula at The Post and Courier in Charleston, S.C.:
  • CATHOLIC HILL — Two bright red buildings stand out among miles of soggy swamp that lines Ritter Road in Colleton County.
  • They’re a sure sign you’ve made it to Catholic Hill, a small settlement about 40 miles southwest of Charleston.
  • The buildings — a steepled church and an old school house – belong to Saint James the Greater Catholic Mission. They’ve stood the test of time, but black spots and wear on their red cedar-shake show they’re in need of some care, as well.
  • Inside the old school house, the staircase that once stood is gone and scaffolding sits along the walls. Pine wood used to line the floor. But now it, too, is gone and its disappearance has shaken the very core of the church.
  • A thief or thieves stole the heap of wood that had been salvaged from that old school house floor as part of a long-awaited renovation. For the congregation, the loss is as deep-rooted as their history.

Video: Kenyan deputy president strongly rebuffs Obama on gay ‘marriage’: ‘We believe in God’ | LifeSiteNews.com

The following excerpts are from LifeSiteNews.com:

  • A second African president has rebuffed President Barack Obama's promotion of homosexuality in foreign relations during his $100 million tour of the continent.
  • Obama said he respects “people's personal views and their religious faith, et cetera,” but “when it comes to how the state treats people, how the law treats people,” he believes the equality of homosexuality and the traditional family is“a principle that I think applies universally.”
  • Deputy President of Kenya William Ruto responded during Sunday Mass that Kenya is committed to the nuclear family as taught by the Scriptures.
  • “Those who believe in other things, that is their business,” Ruto said at St. Gabriel’s Catholic Church in Maili Kumi. “We believe in God.”
