Imam-in-Chief Usama Bin Bama casts an approving eye over his handiwork, all wrapped up in a neat photo opportunity to help bolster those flagging approval ratings.
The DoD recently overturned a policy of prohibiting such photos. There a new, better idea: use these as photo opportunities .. a master stroke in the age of social media!
MAJOR NEWSPAPERS BLAST CATHOLICISM
October 28, 2009
Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments as follows:
Last Friday on the Washington Post blog, “On Faith,” English atheist Richard Dawkins said the Catholic Church was “surely up there among the leaders” as “the greatest force for evil in the world.” He labeled the Eucharist a “cannibal feast,” adding that “possession of testicles is an essential qualification to perform the rite.” He also blamed the Church for sending missionaries “out to tell deliberate lies to AIDS-weakened Africans” regarding condoms. The Church’s outreach to Anglicans, he said, makes it “a common pimp,” noting that those who convert “will be joining an institution where buggering altar boys pervades the culture.”
On Saturday, a Los Angeles Times editorial said that “church leaders, including popes, have changed their thinking over the years about everything from usury to the culpability of Jews for the Crucifixion….” It concluded, “You don’t have to be Catholic (or Anglican) to realize that society as a whole would be better off if the church’s views of women and gays underwent a similar evolution.”
On Sunday, New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd recalled that when she was in grade school, “Nuns were second-class citizens then and–40 years after feminism utterly changed America—they still are.” She called Pope Benedict XVI the “uber-conservative pope,” a.k.a. “God’s Rottweiler,” who was once “a conscripted member of the Hitler Youth.” She also accused the Church of enabling “rampant pedophilia.”
On Monday, James Carroll in the Boston Globe called the outreach to Anglicans “a cruel assault,” “an insult to loyal Catholic liberals” and “a slap at women and homosexuals.” He characterized the outreach as a “preemptive exploitation of Anglican distress.”
These deranged comments—all voiced in America’s premier newspapers—demonstrate that anti-Catholicism is the most virulent expression of bigotry in the U.S. It also shows why these newspapers, quite unlike the Catholic Church, are dying. As for the writers, they need to go to church. Either that or check into an asylum.

She's got some unusual habits.
Octomom Nadya Suleman poked fun at herself by dressing as a pregnant nun for some early Halloween trick-or-treating with her brood.
Her eight adorable babies were dressed in tiny red devil costumes, and their giant strollers -- each carries four kids -- were draped with fake spider webs.
Although Suleman smiled sweetly for the photo, her babies flubbed it -- most of them crying or sleeping.Suleman raised a ruckus in January when she gave birth to eight children via in-vitro fertilization.
This is my annual Halloween posting. In the recent years I have wavered on the concept of Halloween and I think it's time to trash it for good. Cultural/historical background notwithstanding Halloween has evolved into an embrace of the demonic with a sprinkling of Church bashing (the last acceptable form of prejudice in America.)

Church of England bishop says 'Anglican experiment is over'
London, England, Oct 26, 2009 / 05:13 pm (CNA).- Members of the traditionalist Anglican group Forward in Faith recently concluded their annual gathering, which was dedicated to discussing Pope Benedict's overture to Anglicans. The general impression left by the conference was the “Anglican experiment is over,” a mood that was reinforced by Bishop John Hind officially announcing he is ready to become Catholic.

Among the media, academia and within planning circles, there’s a generally standing answer to the question of what cities are the best, the most progressive and best role models for small and mid-sized cities. The standard list includes Portland, Seattle, Austin, Minneapolis, and Denver. But look closely at these exemplars and a curious fact emerges. If you take away the dominant Tier One cities like New York, Chicago and Los Angeles you will find that the “progressive” cities aren’t red or blue, but another color entirely: white.
In fact, not one of these “progressive” cities even reaches the national average for African American percentage population in its core county. Perhaps not progressiveness but whiteness is the defining characteristic of the group.
Is Rep Kennedy smoking crack (again) ?
Holy Crap! Is the Roman Catholic Church still opposed to abortion? Who knew?

Hey, we're just marching to the beat of our boss:
Matthew 10: 34 Do not think that I came to send peace upon earth: I came not to send peace, but the sword. 35 For I came to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 36 And a man's enemies shall be they of his own household. 37 He that loveth father or mother more than me, is not worthy of me; and he that loveth son or daughter more than me, is not worthy of me. 38 And he that taketh not up his cross, and followeth me, is not worthy of me. 39 He that findeth his life, shall lose it: and he that shall lose his life for me, shall find it. 40 He that receiveth you, receiveth me: and he that receiveth me, receiveth him that sent me.

Desperate bishops invited Rome to park its tanks on Archbishop’s lawn
Rome has parked its tanks on the Archbishop of Canterbury’s lawn after manoeuvres undertaken by up to fifty bishops and begun two years ago by an Australian archbishop, John Hepworth.
As leader of the Traditional Anglican Communion, a breakaway group claiming to represent up to 400,000 laity worldwide, he went to Rome seeking a means to achieve full, visible unity for his flock.In England, negotiations with the Vatican have been led by two of the “flying bishops” — the AngloCatholics sanctioned to provide pastoral care for opponents of the ordination of women as priests. The Bishop of Ebbsfleet, the Right Rev Andrew Burnham, and the Bishop of Richborough, the Right Rev Keith Newton, visited Rome at Easter last year for talks with Cardinal Levada.
As a former armored vehicle driver - turned Uber Catholic .. I love this mix of imagery and ecumenical destruction ..... LET THEM EAT THE EUCHARIST!!!!
As many as 1,000 priests could quit the Church of England and thousands more may leave churches in America and Australia under bold proposals to welcome Anglicans to Rome.
Entire parishes and even dioceses could be tempted to defect after Pope Benedict XVI’s decision to offer a legal structure to Anglicans joining the Roman Catholic Church.
His decree, issued yesterday, is a serious blow to attempts by the Arch Druid , Dr Rowan Williams, to save the Anglican Communion from further fragmentation and threatens to wreck decades of ecumenical dialogue.

US President Barack Obama got a blunt question from an unexpected quarter Thursday -- a daring nine-year-old boy who asked "why do people hate you?"
Obama, caught up in a divisive political row over his plans for health care reform, called on the boy, Tyren Scott, in a public meeting during his first visit to hurricane-ravaged New Orleans as president.
"I have to say, why do people hate you? They supposed to love you. God is love," Tyren, from Paulina, Louisiana asked.
Obama, appeared tickled by the question, saying "hey, that's what I'm talking about," adding "I did get elected president, so not everybody hates me now... I got a whole lot of votes."
"If you were watching TV lately, it seems like everybody's just getting mad all the time. And you know, I think that you've got to take it with a grain of salt. Some of it is just what's called politics."
The reporter fails to report the big story. This little boy seems to confuse God with this quasi Muslim socialist. Reread is sentence. It is quite clear what is going through the boys mind. He has been taught that Obama is God.
OFFICIAL ANSWER TO THE BOY:
God is Love, Obama is not God or god-like Obama is Evil and Obama likes evil. We hate evil and that is why we hate Obama.
|Are Hormone-mimicking Chemicals Harming Our Children?||l|

Are chemicals in our environment masculinizing girls and feminizing boys? A growing body of scientific evidence suggests that this is the case, and one of the latest studies has linked exposure to a substance known as bisphenol A, or BPA, with aggressive behavior in girls.
Liz Szabo reports on the research in USA Today, writing, “In the study of 249 pregnant women, the first to examine the effects of BPA on children's behavior, researchers found that girls ... were more likely to be aggressive if their mothers had high levels of BPA — an estrogen-like chemical used in many consumer products — early in pregnancy.”
Just to celebrate communism they lit up the Empire State Building.
Empire State Building to glow red, yellow for China
Posted Tue Sep 29, 2009 6:14am AEST
New York's iconic Empire State Building will light up red and yellow on Wednesday (local time) in honour of the 60th anniversary of communist China.
The Chinese consul, Peng Keyu, and other officials will take part in the lighting ceremony which will bathe the skyscraper in the colours of the People's Republic until Thursday, Empire State Building representatives said in a statement.
The upper sections of the building are regularly illuminated to mark special occasions, ranging from all blue to mark Old Blue Eyes Frank Sinatra's death in 1998 to green for the annual Saint Patrick's Day.
Just last week the tower turned bright red.
However, that was not to mark some other communist achievement, but the 70th anniversary of the film The Wizard of Oz in which Dorothy wears ruby slippers rather than the silver of the original L Frank Baum novel.

Symbol carved into green at Lakeville golf course

Why is the Secret Service involved? The message contains no threat even if the vandal did mean "I Nazi Symbol Obama."
Ironically the Hindi "peace and love" is also an inverted Nazi Symbol, most educated people already know this.
Is the Secret Service going to get involved if I say, "I hate Obama" ? They must be bored.
