Support For Post-Birth Abortion(MURDER)

TRENDING: More college students support post-birth abortion

by Mairead McArdle – Thomas Aquinas College on October 29, 2014
FIX FEATURE

A trend seen by prolife activists that frequently engage college students on campuses nationwide is the growing acceptance of post-birth abortion, or killing the infant after he or she is born, campus prolife outreach leaders tell The College Fix.

Anecdotal evidence by leaders of prolife groups such as Created Equal and Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust said in interviews that not only do they see more college students willing to say they support post-birth abortion, but some students even suggest children up to 4 or 5-years-old can also be killed, because they are not yet “self aware.” read more

Syllogisms for the Times

Since it appears fashionable in certain quarters to use a syllogism to advance one’s point of view, perhaps we might consider the following:
– Modernism is the synthesis of all heresies (Pascendi) and
– Bergoglio is a Modernist therefore
– Bergoglio is a heretic.

Ah, but it doesn’t end there, dear readers, consider the following:
– A heretic cannot be Pope (Holy Spirit is guarding the edifice) and
– Bergoglio is a heretic therefore
– Begoglio cannot be pope. read more

– Double standards.
– Selective “mercy”.
– Good cop, bad cop.

All very Machiavellian. Not Christian at all, though. But it could be “divine”, if we are dealing with “the God of Surprises”…

SURPRISE!

Philosophy and Common Sense

Philosophy and Common Sense

by Antonio Orozco Arvo

Taken from www.arbil.org/arbil111.htm
Translated from the Spanish by Roberto Hope

The levels or modes of attaining human knowledge are several; at least three: Common sense, Science and Philosophy. Beyond that is Faith

The first three are within the reach of any person, since they are natural capabilities of the human intelligence. Faith, in a theological sense, is a supernatural capability which presupposes a supernatural gift; that is why we do not count it at this point. read more

At Rome, the holy martyrs Cyril and Anastasia the Elder, virgin. In the persecution of Valerian, under the prefect Probus, Anastasia was bound with chains, buffeted, subjected to fire and scourging, and, as she remained immovable in the confession of Christ, her breasts were cut away, her nails plucked out, her teeth broken, and her hands, feet, and head severed from her body. Adorned with her sufferings as with so many jewels, she went to her Spouse. At her request, Cyril gave her some water to drink, and for his reward became a martyr. read more

Dear Miss Erinyes

I’m just wondering what your opinion is. Do you think that Francis really is pope? I cannot imagine the real pope doing and saying the things that Francis is doing and saying.

Do you think that it is possible that the last conclave was rigged, making Francis’ election illegitimate?

Fr. M

Dear Father,

The truth is that I have no idea. I am not a canonist; I have no training in theology or Church history and have no special ability to discern between the various arguments now being commonly bruited about the internet. I can see that we have a very large problem, one in the person of Francis that seems to equal the horrifying problems in the world. He seems to me to be, indeed, an intrinsic part of those external problems, a product of them, one might even say. read more
