News, In the

 Posted by CatholicVote.com

The Consecrated Host is back in the hands of Archbishop Coakley and the Catholic Church.

Deo Gratias!

Additionally, the Satanists have agreed to sign a statement saying that they will not use a Consecrated Host in a black mass – if it happens.

Talk about a great victory!

I work in politics. There are many important battles on Capitol Hill, in our federal courts, and at the ballot box.

But I’ll be totally honest: This victory is perhaps the most important one of them all!

The Satanists thought they had us against the ropes. It’s a public forum and we couldn’t stop them from performing their “ceremony.” They even went so far as to brag about having a Consecrated Host!

But that’s where they crossed the line.

Our friend, attorney Michael Caspino, sprung into action. Lifted by the prayers of Catholics all across the country – and with the support of Archbishop Coakley — Caspino fought back against the Satanists in court.

And we won. We won for Jesus.

The Satanists might still hold a black mass, but promised that they won’t do so with a Consecrated Host. So let’s continue praying to Saint Michael, in thanksgiving for his powerful intercession.

National Catholic Register  Sunday, April 06, 2014 5:15 PM, by Jimmy Akin

Brendan Eich is the creator of the JavaScript programming language and the co-founder of the Mozilla Corporation, which makes the popular web browser Firefox.

Several years ago, he made a donation to support Prop 8, a California ballot measure designed to protect true marriage by definining it in law as between a man and a woman.

This donation just cost him his job.

He was recently named CEO of the Mozilla Corporation. Mozilla proudly trumpeted it on their Facebook page on March 24th:

Big news, Mozillians! Brendan Eich will be appointed to the role of CEO of Mozilla, effective immediately: http://mzl.la/1roIR0w

But the very next entry on their Facebook page, dated April 3, says:

Brendan Eich has stepped down as Mozilla’s CEO:http://mzl.la/1hFwbOP

What happened? His donation to Prop 8 came to light, thuggish homosexual activists began calling for his scalp, a dating site called OKCupid called for a boycott, and soon Eich was out of a job.

Technically, he “stepped down” voluntarily, rather than being outright fired, but we all know how corporations use that as a shield. Mozilla dissembles about that here.

But the truth is revealed by its page stating its policy supporting homosexual “marriage.”

It’s also revealed in a statement made by Mozilla’s new CEO, Mitchell Baker, where she writes:

Mozilla prides itself on being held to a different standard and, this past week, we didn’t live up to it. We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it’s because we haven’t stayed true to ourselves.

We didn’t act like you’d expect Mozilla to act. We didn’t move fast enough to engage with people once the controversy started. We’re sorry. We must do better.

Brendan Eich has chosen to step down from his role as CEO. He’s made this decision for Mozilla and our community.

She then engages in the most amazing example of Orwellian doublespeak and becomes absolutely incoherent, writing:

Mozilla believes both in equality and freedom of speech. Equality is necessary for meaningful speech. And you need free speech to fight for equality. Figuring out how to stand for both at the same time can be hard.

Our organizational culture reflects diversity and inclusiveness. We welcome contributions from everyone regardless of age, culture, ethnicity, gender, gender-identity, language, race, sexual orientation, geographical location and religious views. Mozilla supports equality for all.

We have employees with a wide diversity of views. Our culture of openness extends to encouraging staff and community to share their beliefs and opinions in public. This is meant to distinguish Mozilla from most organizations and hold us to a higher standard. But this time we failed to listen, to engage, and to be guided by our community.

While painful, the events of the last week show exactly why we need the web. So all of us can engage freely in the tough conversations we need to make the world better.

This is utter horse manure.

Actions speak louder than words, and it is clear that Mozilla does not support freedom of speech or welcome contributions from everyone regardless of their religious views if it is not willing to have a person who supports true marriage as its CEO.

It’s just told every employee, and every member of its larger community, that their free speech and contributions will not be respected if they conflict with the homosexual agenda.

Mozilla has, with brutal eloquence, laid its cards on the table.

If you subscribe to the historic view of marriage, you are a second class citizen as far as Mozilla is concerned.

 What You Can Do

It is important that people give Mozilla pushback–and a lot of it–because the less people suffer the consequences of this kind of behavior, the more it will be invited in the future.

You want Christians to experience a new and even worse persecution than what they’re facing now? Do nothing.

You want to fight back? Here’s what you can do . . .

 

 

Mozilla has a web page where you can leave feedback on its Firefox browser.

THAT WEB PAGE IS HERE.

At the time of this writing, the feedback in the last day has been 93% negative, and many of the comments are withering. You can read them here.

 2) You can tell them of your displeasure by social media, including:

 3) You can give them a call. Their phone number is (650) 903-0800.

Some folks are even trying to organize a “Call Mozilla Monday.”

 4) If you own a web page, you can install code that either blocks Firefox and redirects users to a page explaining why Mozilla needs pushback or you can install code that doesn’t block Firefox but does cause Firefox users to receive a notification concerning the situation.

HERE’S INFO ON THAT.

 Which of these should you do? Why choose just one? Do as many as you can.

 What You Can Say

Here are a few helpful talking points that you may find useful as things to say. Many other people are already saying them:

  1. I have deleted Firefox (and your other products) from all of my computers and devices. I will not use them again.
  2. I will tell everyone I know not to use Firefox and your other products. I will do this personally and on the web by social media sharing.
  3. You got rid of a guy who made a donation years ago for taking the same position on homosexual “marriage” that President Obama had at the time.
  4. Fifty-two percent of Californians supported Prop 8. Should they all lose their jobs?
  5. Your dissembling doesn’t fool anyone. Actions speak louder than words, and your actions make it clear that you do not support free speech or freedom of religion, no matter what you say.
  6. The homosexual movement frequently complains of “bullying,” but you are yourself acting as bullies by treating supporters of traditional morality as second class citizens and striking fear into your own employees and community members who hold these views.
  7. Even homosexual activists like Andrew Sullivan and other supporters of homosexual “marriage” are horrified by your decision.

And here are a few terms you might find helpful:

  • Hypocritical
  • Hypocrites
  • Lying
  • Intolerant
  • Bullying
  • Bullies
  • Brutal
  • Thuggish
  • Orwellian
  • Totalitarian
  • Second-class citizens

Oh yea, and because of all the negative feedback they’re getting, Mozilla has clammed up. They’re starting to realize what a mistake they’ve made.

Have fun stormin’ the castle!

Egyptian Tragedy

by JesseRay on February 18, 2014

The news of an attack in Eygpt by a muslim suicide bomb on a group of South Korean pilgrim bus is terrible, and our prayers go out for victims and their families.

We ceased all pilgrimages to Egypt back in 2011 because we decided it was no longer a safe place to visit. On the other hand, Israel continues to be very safe, with a long history of security for all pilgrims traveling in the Holy Land. So please be aware of the inaccurate headlines that try to increase fear in traveling to Israel.

Those who have been to both Egypt and Israel know that there has always been a clear difference between the two countries. In general terms Egypt has scattered and inconsistent security, and tends to be more disorganized and dirty. Our experience visiting Israel over 100 times is that it is security is impeccable and efficient, and the infrastructure is modern and clean.

We will continue to pray for peace and stability for Egypt, especially the minority Coptic Christians, and we will continue to enjoy the wonderful modern country of Israel as often as we normally do.
