Stand Up for Truth and Pray the Rosary


A coalition of Christians, atheists and gay groups will stage a protest against Pope Benedict XVI's visit to Australia for World Youth Day next month, organisers said Monday. Well frankly if a group like this ever starts agreeing with you better rethink your position quickly
The demonstrators will tell hundreds of thousands of pilgrims expected at the Catholic celebrations in Sydney that "the pope is wrong, gays are great and condoms save lives," the NoToPope Coalition said in a statement. I hope there is a strong showing of catholic men ( knights of columbus ) to show support to the Holy Father.
The coalition includes the Metropolitan Community Church, Atheists Sydney, Community Action Against Homophobia and the Socialist Alliance among other groups, the statement said.
"This Pope is homophobic and condemns same-sex marriage," said spokeswoman Rachel Evans.
"Pope Benedict also condemns millions of people to AIDS via his world-wide anti-condom policy," she said. Condemns them by there lack of self control ?
The coalition plans to hold a public rally in the city on July 19 and then march toward Randwick Racecourse, where pilgrims will be gathering for a Papal mass the next day which is expected to draw 500,000 people.
"By calling homosexuality an objective disorder it is..and saying gay sex is evil, he's right..Pope Benedict nurtures bigotry and violence, not love," said organiser Luke Roberts.
The five-day celebration of Catholic youth has been billed as a major boost to the economy of Australia's largest city, attracting up to 125,000 international visitors.
But there has been a stream of grumbles over the event's costs, its impact on businesses as well as the inconvenience it will cause the city's residents. Really, I bet they wouldn't grumble if there city was disrupted by the Super Bowl.
The New South Wales state government has committed almost 110 million dollars (104 million US) to staging the event, arguing it will pump 150 million dollars into the economy.
But the coalition said it would protest state funding for an event staged by the Catholic Church "an organisation that clearly doesn't need the money." haha clearly with all the big churches and all.
"The money should instead have gone to badly needed community services," said Anthony Englund, representing Atheists Sydney. Any bet he wouldn't complain if the money went to Planned Parenthood.
Pope Benedict XVI is due to arrive in Australia on July 13 and will take a four day holiday before joining the World Youth Day celebrations culminating in the Papal mass on July 20.

The Coming of the Obamessiah

And it came to pass that Obama called his delegates to himself. And going up on an exceeding high mountain, he opened his mouth and spake, saying:
I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.
In the beginning was Obama. Before him, they that needed the physician were as sheep without a shepherd, nor was there labor for any in the regions of North America, from New York even to California. Day by day, the sick lay dying in the streets with none to help them. But Obama lifted up his eyes of compassion upon them. He spoke, and it was. He uttered the Word, and health care began. Beggars who stood idle verily found work through the power of his Holy Name. At the sound of his mighty voice, the rising oceans were rebuked and flowed back to their place. By the power of the Zeitgeist, the planet was healed. And, lo! His disciples were exceeding amazed. For Obama said, "You who fear the Zeitgeist, vote for me! All you children of America, glorify me, and stand in awe of me, all you sons and daughters of the United States! For I have not despised or abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; and I have not hid my face from you, but have heard, when you cried to me. All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to me; and all the families of the nations shall worship before me. For dominion belongs to the Zeitgeist, and it rules over the nations. Yea, to me shall all the proud of the earth bow down; before me shall bow all who go down to the dust, and he who cannot keep himself alive. Posterity shall serve me; men shall tell of me to the coming generation, and proclaim my deliverance to a people yet unborn, that I have wrought it."

And the peoples of the earth answered and sang in this wise:

I will sing to Obama, for he has triumphed gloriously;the SUV and driver he has thrown into the sea.Obama is my strength and my song,and he has become my salvation;this is my god, and I will praise him,my father's god, and I will exalt him.Obama is a man of war;Obama is his name.At the blast of thy nostrils the waters piled up,the floods stood up in a heap;the deeps congealed in the heart of the sea.Gaia said, "I will pursue, I will overtake,I will divide the spoil, my desire shall have its fill of them.I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them."Thou didst blow with thy wind, the sea would have covered New York;they would have sank as lead in the mighty waters.Who is like thee, Obama, among the pols?Who is like thee, majestic in holiness,terrible in glorious deeds, doing wonders?Thou didst stretch out thy right hand,and the waters receded.Thou hast led in thy steadfast lovethe people whom thou hast schmoozed,thou hast guided them by thy strength to thy holy city, which is called Denver.The peoples have heard, they tremble;pangs have seized on the inhabitants of Chappaqua.Now are the chiefs of the Clintonistas dismayed;the leaders of Arkansas, trembling seizes them;all the supporters of the Hillary campaign have melted away.Terror and dread fall upon them;because of the greatness of thy arm, they are as still as a stone,till thy people, Obama, pass by,till the people pass by whom thou hast purchased.Thou wilt bring them in, and plant them in thy own administration,the place, Obama, which thou hast made for thy abode,the sanctuary, Obama, which thy hands have established.Obama will reign for ever and ever.

The Zeitgeist and the Media say, "Come!" Even so! Come, Lord Obama!

Liberal agenda on the march

Bye Bye Pledge of Allegiance

"The pledge was instead replaced with a singing version of the preamble to the Constitution."

"The pledge was removed "out of respect for the diversity of religious faiths."

"The Portland School District said there were no complaints about the pledge."
