Catholic World News – January 23, 2015

In a January 22 statement, President Barack Obama described Roe v. Wade as “a decision that protects a woman’s freedom to make her own choices about her body and her health, and reaffirms a fundamental American value: that government should not intrude in our most private and personal family matters.”

Criticizing pro-life legislative efforts, he said that “I am deeply committed to protecting this core constitutional right” and that “the federal government should not be injecting itself into decisions best made between women, their families, and their doctors. I am also deeply committed to continuing our work to reduce unintended pregnancies, support maternal and child health, promote adoptions, and minimize the need for abortion.”

“Today, as we reflect on this critical moment in our history, may we all rededicate ourselves to ensuring that our daughters have the same rights, freedoms, and opportunities as our sons,” he added.
*******
Right, at least the daughters that survive abortion! How stupid can a man be?

“2014 was a fantastic year for Geocentrism Debunked (www.geocentrismdebunked.org) – the site usage has been really strong and is growing steadily.

As the line-up of the most recent articles from last year shows, we ended 2014 addressing geocentrism from multiple scientific and theological angles. Now we’re kicking off the new year with three new pieces focusing on credibility.

The new geocentrists want us to believe that they are uniquely qualified and competent to overturn the entire world of physics and astrophysics, as well as uniquely trustworthy and honest in their dealings with the scientific data. As such, it’s reasonable to take a close look at their fundamental credibility.

Obama’s “Obamacare” in Four Sentences

by Steve Ray on January 19, 2015

1. In order to insure the uninsured, we first have to uninsure the insured.
2. Next, we require the newly uninsured to be re-insured.
3. To re-insure the newly uninsured, they are required to pay extra charges to be re-insured.
4. The extra charges are required so that the original insured, who became uninsured, and then became re-insured, can pay enough extra so that the original uninsured can be insured, which will be free of charge to them.

Unhappily, we have experienced the first three steps. We lost our health insurance, had to purchase a new policy at twice the cost and twice the deductible and half the covered services. And Obama calls it the “affordable healthcare act”.
