Gary Sinise of CSI is now the bullied, not the hero

Word is now circulating around the Catholic world that conservative hero Gary Sinise, along with Fox News anchor Bret Baier, both publicly professed faithful Catholics, cancelled their appearances at a Legatus Summit at the last minute under pressure from the LGBT crowd. …

There exists a highly organized cadre of LGBT activists whose job it is to monitor the American people for any deviance from what is approved thought and speech. But more than monitor, their job is rather like advanced scouts so that other LGBTs may then move in to target and punish. Their influence is pernicious, wicked and frankly un-American.

The body count continues to rise.

It's hard to watch him now and take him seriously

There are all those people who were exposed as donors to the Proposition 8 campaign. Many lost their jobs when LGBTs forced their names into the open. The most famous of these is Brendan Eich, who for a few weeks was CEO of Mozilla Firefox but had to step down under LGBT pressure because he supported the right of Californians to decide the definition of marriage.

Most recently, the fire chief of Atlanta was fired for stating his belief that homosexual behavior is immoral. There are many more who have lost their jobs, and more who self-censor, simply shut up out of fear.

Bullies are shaping the discourse in America. It is not wise to let the bullies be in control You can read the whole Crisis Magazine article HERE.

U.S. Supreme Court Justices Elena Kagan and Ruth Bader Ginsburg should recuse themselves from any cases involving the homosexual marriage issue on the basis that they have conducted same-sex marriage ceremonies.

The two circled judges should recuse themselves

The justices announced last Friday they will review an appellate ruling that upheld bans on same-sex unions in four states. The case will be argued in April and a decision is expected by late June.

 Justice Kagan performed a September 21 same-sex marriage for her former law clerk and his partner Patrick Pearsall in Maryland. Justice Ginsburg performed a same-sex marriage at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington DC in August 2013. 

 Both of these justices’ personal and private actions actively endorsing gay marriage clearly indicate how they would vote on same-sex marriage cases before the Supreme Court.

Congress has directed that federal judicial officers must disqualify themselves from hearing cases in specified circumstances. Title 28, Section 455 of the United States Code states “any justice, judge, or magistrate judge of the United States shall disqualify himself in any proceeding in which his impartiality might reasonably be questioned.”

Both Kagan and Ginsburg have not only been partial to same-sex marriage, they have proven themselves to be activists in favor of it!

In order to ensure the Court’s integrity and impartiality, Justices Kagan and Ginsburg must recuse themselves from same-sex marriage cases.

Congress has an obligation to Americans that members of the Supreme Court are held to the highest standard of integrity. The law demands it and the people deserve it.

Urge your members of Congress to privately and publicly call on Justices Kagan and Ginsburg to properly and legally recuse themselves from cases involving same-sex marriage.

Join Archbishop Cordileone in Prayer

Archbishop: “It’s hard to imagine how the essential meaning of marriage … consistent with every society throughout all of human history, could be declared illegal”

WASHINGTON, D.C., January 17, 2015 (Zenit.org) – The U. S. Supreme Court granted a request Friday to review the November 2014 decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit upholding the constitutionality of marriage laws in Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee.

The decision regarding same-sex marriage is expected in June or July.

Please pray for these judges. May God direct their decisions.

Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco, chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Subcommittee for the Promotion and Defense of Marriage, responded to the Court’s action, saying, “A decision by the Supreme Court on whether a state may define marriage as the union of one man and one woman may be the most significant Court decision since the Court’s tragic 1973 Roe v. Wade decision making abortion a constitutional right.”

The anniversary of that decision is next week, Jan. 22, and will be marked by the annual March for Life in D.C., as well as the West Coast Walk for Life.

Pope Francis just today spoke against a redefinition of marriage. At a meeting with families in Manila, he said: “While all too many people live in dire poverty, others are caught up in materialism and lifestyles which are destructive of family life and the most basic demands of Christian morality. This is the ideological colonization. The family is also threatened by growing efforts on the part of some to redefine the very institution of marriage, by relativism, by the culture of the ephemeral, by a lack of openness to life.”

IMG_0816.JPGArchbishop Cordileone also noted, “It’s hard to imagine how the essential meaning of marriage as between the two sexes, understood in our nation for over 200 years, and consistent with every society throughout all of human history, could be declared illegal. To those arguing for a constitutional redefinition of marriage, one must ask: when did the Constitution suddenly mandate a novel and unfounded definition of marriage?

To ask such a question is not a judgment on anyone. It is a matter of justice and truth. The central issue at stake is: what is marriage? The answer is: a bond which unites a man and a woman to each other and to any children who come from their union. Only a man and a woman can unite their bodies in a way that creates a new human being. Marriage is thus a unique and beautiful reality which a society respects to its benefit or ignores to its peril.”

Archbishop Cordileone added, “Let us pray that the Supreme Court will be guided by right reason and render a true and just decision upholding the constitutionality of states to respect the institution of marriage as the union of one man and one woman.”

The Supreme Court is expected to hear oral arguments in the coming months.
