From the Chicago Tribune
‘Washington-President Obama on Thursday endorsed a bill introduced by Sen. Dianne Feinstein D CA. that would repel the Defense Of Marriage Act , a 15-year-old law denying federal benefits for same-sex couples. Meanwhile in New York City, officials said that because of the overwhelming number of applicants , a lottery will decide who will be allowed to marry Sunday, when a new law allowing same-sex marriages to go into effect. ‘
In this writer’s opinion, call you U.S. senator now to tell him or her to VOTE NO on a national repel. This is wrong and they know that if they have any soul .
If they do vote for this, remember this in the upcoming election day and vote them out as I will as a good Catholic! Go to www.congress.org today and act before it is too late to do anything later!
Listening to C-Span today, I find it very interesting that President Obama would veto a Republican Bill on the budget because it goes against The Frank Bill in the house accord to the Hill newspaper. Obama even went as far as to tax the wealthy. He then walked out of meetings as the talks went on upset at what he was hearing. Too bad for him.
Put America first people! In short, we have to stop spending what we don’t have! Cuts in programs that suck the life out of America are a good idea. Welfare reform for those who are able to work but choose not to for example is a good start.
How can the rich be punished for making money? That is how our country works. It top to bottom. That is our economy. So I thought. Glad to see the Republicans and conservative Democrats hold Obama’s feet to the fire so to speak. Someone has too. P.S. Will Trump run? We hope so.
As we heard, Pres. Obama will begin being home our troop by September in large numbers from the Middle East leaving the battle to someone else. The question here is, Who is going to fight terrorist? The UN.? PLEASE. We pay for 75% of the UN and do the heavy lifting and no help. Nice if they would get other countries involved not a chance. If you will not take care of yourself, who will?
The big question? Do we wish to fight terrorism there or in New York, Chicago, or LA.? I for one don’t want this in the United States! In the Catholic American opinion, we should finish the good fight once and for all. It will not go away by running away from the problem. Plus they started it on September 11 by the way! Take Washington out of the picture and let the generals do their work and win this one as we did in World War II then bring our troops home!
EVANGELIZATION IS ROOTED IN A PERSONAL ENCOUNTER WITH JESUS CHRIST.
‘ Christianity is not a new philosophy or new morality. We are Christians only if we encounter Christ…..Only in this personal relationship with Christ, only in this encounter with the Risen One do we really become Christians……. There fore, let us pray to the Lord to enlighten us so that, in our world, HE will grant us the encounter with his presence, and thus give us a lively faith, an open heart, and great charity for all, capable of renewing the world. ‘
EVANGELIZATION IS A MISSION OF THE CHURCH.
” We cannot keep to ourselves the word of eternal life given to us in our encounter with Jesus Christ: they are ment for everyone, for every man and woman…. It is our responsibility to pass on what, by God grace, we ourselves have received’ — Pope Benedict XVI Vacican City on September 3, 2008 Well put in the Catholic American’s opinion.
CHICAGO TRIBUNE REPORT-
‘Idaho’s governor said Thursday he signed into law a measure banning abortions after 30 weeks of pregnancy, making Idaho the third state to enact such a late-term abortion prohibition. Governor Butch Otto, a Republican said he signed the bill Wednesday.
The new law is modeled after a 2010 Nebraska law which has not been challenged in court. Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback signed a bill Wednesday banning abortions after 21 weeks in his state.’
As a Catholic and a Conservative Democrat, Good! Hope to see this in Illinois. Although we have a parent notice before an abortion, it’s being challenged in court. Judges using good sense to vote no on this one!

From the Chicago SunTimes Paper
A U.S. Appeals Court Thursday over turned a ruling that had found unconstitutional a law that required the president to proclaim a national day of prayer each year. The 7th U.S. Court Of Appeals in Chicago said the group that brought the challenge. The Freedom From Religion Foundation had no standing to do so because the law commands only the president to take action.
The court reversed a federal judge in Wisconsin and ordered the case to be dismissed. In the Opinion of the Catholic American good. It’s called freedom of religion. If you don’t want to pray or for that matter go to church, don’t. Please don’t push your opinions on the rest of us! Your hurting only yourself. Go to church!
