Pro-lifers protest ‘flagship’ Planned Parenthood opening in DC!

Several dozen pro-life activists, some holding images of women killed by legal abortion, greeted buses of Planned Parenthood supporters at both entrances to a fundraising event celebrating the abortion chain’s new mega-facility in Northeast Washington. Before walking several blocks from the abortion facility to the gala site, activists prayed and protested as donors visited the new “flagship” center for a VIP reception. 

 “We have to be here for a number of reasons,” Rev. Patrick Mahoney of Church on the Hill DC, the Christian Defense Coalition, and Abortion-Free DC told LifeSiteNews. “One, to stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters who are going to be brutalized here. … We’re here to be a voice for them. We’re here to offer women hope and support and encouragement.”

So, Jesus and Satan were arguing... (A Little Humor)

They had been going at it for days, and frankly God was tired of hearing all the bickering. Finally fed up, God said, 'THAT'S IT! I have had enough. I am going to setup a test that will run for two hours, and from those results, I will judge who does the better job.' So Satan and Jesus sat down at the keyboards and typed away. They moused. 

They faxed.
They e-mailed.
They e-mailed with attachments.
They downloaded.
They did spreadsheets!
They wrote reports.
They created labels and cards.
They created charts and graphs.
They did some genealogy reports .
They did every job known to man.

Jesus worked with heavenly efficiency and Satan was faster than hell. Then, ten minutes before their time was up, lightning suddenly flashed across the sky, thunder rolled, rain poured, and, of course, the power went off. 

Satan stared at his blank screen and screamed every curse word known in the underworld. Jesus sighed.  Finally the electricity came back on, and each of them restarted their computers. 

Satan started searching frantically, screaming: 'It's gone! It's all GONE! 'I lost everything when the power went out!' 

 Meanwhile, Jesus quietly started printing out all of his files from the past two hours of work. Satan observed this and became irate. 

 'Wait!' he screamed. 'That's not fair! He cheated! How come he has all his work and I don't have any?' 

 God just shrugged and said, JESUS SAVES...

How Obama bought off the USCCB this election year!

The American Catholic hierarchy is elevating other causes to primacy in place of the life issue, a new report says, “relegating the pro-life ministries to the doctrinal ash heap and committing funds and personnel to promote environmental and migration issues.” 

 “Migration pays very well,” said attorney and international child rights advocate Elizabeth Yore, “pro-life pays nothing.” 

 Thousands of federal grants and contracts come from the Obama administration to the Catholic Church, Yore says in the report, but in particular, hundreds of millions of dollars in fiscal year 2016 alone found their way to the USCCB, Catholic Charities, CRS, and the International Catholic Migration Commission (ICMC), “jaw dropping grants to carry out the Obama agenda.”
