Pope Benedict XVI Tweets His Support for 40th Annual March for Life in Washington DC Today

The 40th March for Life is being held today in Washington DC.
Here’s the Facebook page.

Lifesite News has a schedule of today’s events.

Organizers say today’s rally in the nation’s capital may bring more anti-abortion activists to the streets than last year’s estimated 400,000.

Pope Benedict XVI tweeted out his support for the march early this morning.

The United States experienced its 55 millionth legal abortion at some point the past year.

    “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”

    Philippians 4:8 KJV

    It’s really hard to do this lately. Paul is telling the new church at Philippi, and us, to just be at peace, and think happy thoughts about true, honest, just, pure, lovely, and reputable things, while being marched to the trains and the showers, while witnessing blindness and apathy among even the people we know and love.

    Very hard to do, especially when you start your day with Drudge, Doug Ross’s “Larwyn’s Linx”, TGP, AoSHQ, the Treehouse, and more.

    So very hard. I guess just read Foxe’s Book of Martyrs and realize that these bodies are just vessels, and that our “persons” will continue on, after the world disposes of us.

    “The United States experienced its 55 millionth legal abortion at some point the past year.”

    An example: “whatsoever is just” is that America’s being judged, and God is just. Whatever atrocious things the Former Republic called The United States of America is about to perform on its citizens, is our sentence.

    Happy thoughts!

    Newt sez: “don’t worry be happy” to GOP.

    CHARLOTTE — Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich channeled his inner Bobby McFerrin and encouraged Republicans to “be a happy party”

    That might just be the first appropriate comment to a thread I’ve ever seen you post.

    Goes along nicely with Philippians 4:8, no?

    Us “Jews” will be singing while the increasingly-angry Nazis do what they do best to us.

    I remember being incarcerated for an evening when I was 21. “Protective Custody”, they called it. Me and a buddy (he was driving) tried to outrun the cops late one 4th of July, after the cops broke up a house party, in a Dodge Colt. It was in the suburbs outside a big city. Took a left, left, right, left (something along those lines). Pulled into a driveway and ducked.

    My buddy left his foot on the brake.

    Drunk as I was, they took me in and I spent the night on a concrete slab.

    Also at the time, Bobby McFerrin was both mine and my buddy’s favorite singer — we were quite into his live performance. He’s still my favorite male vocalist, bar none, including even those who are long gone. I aspired (and still do) to do what he has done.

    I spent the night in jail singing and beat-boxing. In the morning, the shift changed and I heard the cop who had been on duty tell the other one, “Damn that dude in holding is a pretty rhythmic m’fer!”

    Because you know what? Might as well just sing.

    Amazing, isn’t it, l.w.?

    Folks like us will cheerfully allow ourselves to be murdered by folks like you.

    Burned at the stake. Made to fight in gladiatorial combat with wild animals. Drawn and quartered. Beheaded. Crucified.

    All actions, by both parties (me and you), because of a simple “fairy tale”.

    And even as you pull the knife out, my death-rattle will be “I love you still.”

    ::blows a kiss to JDR::

  • JDR-Taq

    Proverbs 27:6 KJV

    “Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.”

    Luke 22:47,48

    47 And while he yet spake, behold a multitude, and he that was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them, and drew near unto Jesus to kiss him.

    48 But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?

    The hypocrisy of the Catholic Church is disgusting. 40 years of screaming against abortion-yet what church honors pro-abortion Democrats with PHDs, etc. more than the Catholic Church? The priests bang the average Catholic in the pew over the head with canon law which is never enforced for VICs-very important Catholics such as Pelosi, Biden, and Cuomo. Why is there Obamacare? Because 30 supposedly pro-life Democrats chose a new messiah over God. Why was he re-elected? Because 25% of the pro-life Catholic vote choose Democrats and abortion over life-that was the swing vote. Yet here, the Pope wrings his hands when there are actual consequences that he could take which he refuses to do.

    To every pro-life Catholic out there-we are here because your Church has been sabotaging the pro-life cause for 40 years. Your Church is not ministering to pro-abortion Catholic politicians-it is honoring them.


    Supporting the pro-life cause with Catholics is like depending on the fox to watch the henhouse.

    We are not allies anymore.

    Sorry for hogging the thread, but apparently I’m the only one here with a day off.

    Pope Benedict: The Virtual Is Real


    I wish I could be so bold in my real life. Composing a sentence takes time. Like Moses, I cannot speak. So I write. To people who, like me, hide behind nics like “lincoln’s widow” and “JDR-Taq”, who, for the most part — discounting bots and paid trolls — are actual people with real souls.

    Susan: find a diocese that hasn’t been infiltrated by marxist-homosexualists, that still practices the pre-1967 Latin mass. One that still understands what is true, holy, and sacred.

    It’s not the church itself, it’s the intentional infiltration that began in the late-60’s by the marxists and the homosexualists — and ultimately, by Satan — that led to what you describe.


    Read everything Ann Barnhardt wrote in the last few months on the Catholic church. Just scroll down, and read.

  • susan d

    JDR: it does not matter what diocese you go to-the Church refuses to do it’s job and actively honors pro-abortion Catholic Democrats.
    When the Church has a choice between Christ and Marx, it chooses Marx in the name of Christ.
    It has sabotaged the pro-life movement

    Feminists, baby butchers, and sodomites are all satanic attacks on the God ordained institutions of marriage and the traditional family. These despicable miscreants are an abomination to good Christians and a stench in the nostrils of God, because they stink to high heaven. They should all be exterminated by the government tomorrow morning. Stoning is an execution method that works for me. However, I am not picky about it. Electrocution, hanging, and firing squads are also effective. See, we have many fine deals. Pick one.

    I am a Catholic and the priests in my parish are as pro-life as you can get and they are not afraid to share their beleifs with us!

    So what do you do Susan D? Are you waiting until they cull their percentages of ‘those who they deem unfit, unproductive, think differently’?

    Will you be one of the remaining citizens they force to the camps as witness to what went on under their noses… and did nothing?

    Will you be the one pointing at the Cathedral screaming, my priest didn’t say anything, he was busy with the Commies betraying our people, so I got used to the stench and ashes.

    Sister in Christ, no one has time for your rants. Tell people why they don’t have social security and their borders are run over (yep, the church has a lot to do with that too). Tell them why there are more non-men out there who don’t take care of their responsibilities (women too). Tell them they killed their social security net. Tell them when you kill babies don’t preach anti-war or killing another human being. This is why it’s easy to see porn using children, them raped, killed and thrown away like trash… because they are thrown away like trash before birth. This is why women and children are sold into sex-slavery. This is why the ‘survivors’ of abortion and our culture shoot up schools and their parents. It could’ve been them.

    If no one saw it when a non-terminal woman starved to death for 13 days, I don’t know what to tell them.

    We have someone wrecking the finances, censoring speech, taking guns and expanding abortion, euthanasia through a health bill. Does that conjure up any past history?

    If you support life, say it with your voice.

    If you are Catholic, what are you doing about it in your parish? Have you dressed you priests down? I have, and will do it again.

    We believe in Christ, not men.

    Note: There are more Baptist, Assembly of God, etc. participating in the March for Life these last years. There are also, as of last year, those who are attempting to co-op the March. Turn to EWTN’s channel or watch online (www.ewtn.com), you will see the two specific signs that give it away.

    One abortion every 94 seconds per Planned Parenthood’s last report.

    Gotta go, the Orthodox are chanting… divine.

    My parish in the Midwest has always had openly pro-life and conservative priests. We have grown in number every year that I’ve attended..
