Your call urgently needed today!

Vote expected no later than next Wednesday!

Senator Evan Bayh is set to vote against the Marriage Protection Amendment next week. The MPA defines marriage as being only between one man and one woman. Sen. Bayh is expected to vote for homosexual marriage under the pretext of voting for "states rights." Can you imagine the chaos we would have if this country had 50 different laws defining marriage!

Take Action

Call Senator Bayh today. A vote against the Marriage Protection Amendment is, in essence, a vote for homosexual marriage. You will find his phone numbers below. We suggest you call the district office nearest you since his Washington numbers will probably be busy. Here are the numbers. Make copies of this and pass out at church and Sunday school. Forward this to family and friends.

Manny Miranda Returns To "The Dickson/Chappell Report" On 5/27/06

Manuel Miranda, 45, Chairman of the Third Branch Conference, is a visiting legal fellow at the Heritage Foundation.

Miranda is tenacious, blunt spoken, a committed Conservative and Catholic --both with a capital "C." His tenure as counsel and liaison to the Catholic community for Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) was cut short in February 2004 after revelations that, as a staffer to Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Orrin Hatch, he accessed documents of committee Democrats from a common computer network. Miranda denied wrongdoing.

He previously headed the Cardinal Newman Society, a "national organization dedicated to the renewal of Catholic identity at Catholic colleges and universities in the United States." That group routinely criticizes Catholic colleges that invite pro-choice speakers to campus. Its most recent project asks supporters to "help identify dissidents and heretics on Catholic theology faculties."

Today, Miranda is, to the distress of Bush administration officials, leading the charge to keep Attorney General and First Friend Alberto Gonzalez off the high court. "In the short-term," he told NCR, "everyone is focused on it not being Gonzalez." In private meetings with pro-life activists who support overturning Roe v. Wade, Gonzalez has signaled that he is not one of them, said Miranda. In public settings, including his 2005 confirmation hearing, Gonzalez has referred to the abortion decision as "settled law." Fighting words.

Time Exclusive: A Rising Star Offers His Own Immigration Plan

Leading House Conservative Mike Pence offers a "no amnesty" solution in an effort to get House Republicans on board
By MIKE ALLEN/WASHINGTON
http://www.time.com/time/nation/article/0,8599,1196991,00.html

Posted Tuesday, May. 23, 2006

With the Senate headed toward a final vote on an immigration bill this week, a leader of House conservatives is asking his colleagues to support a free-market plan aimed at bridging the gulf between the versions in the two chambers. The proposal by Rep. Mike Pence (R-Ind.), provided to TIME ahead of an unveiling speech at the Heritage Foundation, is arguably less compassionate than the version being debated in the Senate and supported in principle by President George W. Bush. But it looks to be more palatable to House Republicans, many of whom have opposed creating a guest worker program before new border crackdowns have been given a chance to work.

Pence, a rising star in the House, is suggesting a temporary worker program based on a data base run by private industry. And unlike the leading plan in the Senate and the blueprint sketched by Bush, his “Border Integrity and Immigration Reform Act” would require all applicants to leave the country first. Pence tweaks a phrase from Bush’s address to the nation by calling the compromise “a REAL rational middle ground.” Even though Bush has said his preferred solution “ain’t amnesty,” Pence appeals to hard-liners by calling the compromise a “no-amnesty solution.”

“The solution is to set up a system that will encourage illegal aliens to self-deport and come back legally as guest workers,” Pence, the grandson of an Irish immigrant, says in prepared remarks. “The visa will be issued only outside of the United States. Outside of the United States. That is a key point because it is the provision that will require the twelve million illegal aliens to leave. Now, some of you are thinking to yourselves that 12 million people aren’t going to pack up and leave just to get a visa to come back legally. But, I believe most will.”

The leading Senate plan would allow workers who have been in the country five years to remain as guest workers, on the theory that they have deep ties to their community. Those in the United States two to five years would have to go to a border crossing to apply, and those here less than two years would have to return to their home countries to be considered. Bush has not endorsed particulars, but said in his address to the nation that it makes sense to differentiate between “an illegal immigrant who crossed the border recently, and someone who has worked here for many years, and has a home, a family, and an otherwise clean record.”

Pence, a lawyer and former radio and television host, is chairman of the Republican Study Committee, the caucus of House conservatives, but the group did not offer the plan because it’s split on how to handle immigration overhaul. Pence’s official biography calls him “a Christian, a conservative and a Republican, in that order.”

His plan includes all the security measures of the bill that has already passed the House, and adds a provision for guest worker visas would be good for two years. A limited renewal would be available if the worker studied English and passed an English proficiency class. Federal law already has visa categories A through V. “The visas will be referred to as ‘W Visas,’ ” Pence say in his remarks. “No kidding. I think it is obvious whose support we are trying to garner here.”

Pence’s measure would create private worker placement agencies called “Ellis Island Centers,” licensed by the federal government to match approved guest workers with jobs that cannot be filled by Americans – a variation on an idea offered by Bush back in January 2004. “U.S. employers will engage the private agencies and request guest workers,” Pence says. “In a matter of days, the private agencies will match guest workers with jobs, perform a health screening, fingerprint them and provide the appropriate information to the FBI and Homeland Security so that a background check can be performed, and provide the guest worker with a visa granted by the State Department.”

Bush said Monday in Chicago that he understands the emotions about immigration, and that it is “a tough issue for members to vote on.” He promised that if he disagrees with someone, he is “not going to debase them in the public arena.” The question is how hard he will lean on them in private. And whether an illegal worker will leave the shadows, if they also have to leave the country.

Open Letter To Bishops And Priests

I’ll bet the priests and bishops of America would be singing a different tune if we were to turn the tables on them. According to their own testimony, let’s see if our church leadership really believes the nonsense they are preaching about illegal immigration.

To the bishops and priests: Let’s say someone throws a brick through the window of your cathedral or your church at 3:00 A.M. and crawls through that window. According to you, they should then be given the same rights as you have for being there. They have just as much legal right to ownership to that building as you do! Then, if they give birth as they crawl through that window, their child then becomes your child, and along with it, the full responsibility of raising that child from womb to tomb. It sounds a lot different when it becomes personal regarding your rights and your property, doesn’t it?

Next we need to look at the individual groups who were involved in putting together the May Day Celebration of Lawlessness: the communist Workers World Party, The International Socialist Organization, F.I.S.T.(Fight Imperialism Stand Together), A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition, SDS (Students for a Democratic Society), Revolutionary Communist Party of the U.S., along with many Catholic priests.

....Ah, Liberation Theology at it’s finest hour!

Catholic and Communist

May Day protest organized by communists.
By Jerome R. Corsi

read article:
http://www.wnd.com/news/printer-friendly.asp?ARTICLE_ID=50030

..."The Catholic Church was clearly present in the protest crowd. WND photographed a Catholic priest giving a speeh on a bullhorn, surrounded by Mexican flags and F.I.S.T. red star signs. Other Catholic priests were present in the rally, one even photographed holding up a protest sign."


Why is the Catholic Church supporting communism?

I am appalled by the naivete of our Church being duped into anti-Christian communism. Liberation theology is a threat to free society by its undermining of the Church and its magisterium through attempting to redefine moral issues (changing the Gospel to support theology opposed to shaping theology as a result of the Gospel.)

Ignorance is not bliss and unless we familiarize ourselves with the dangers, then future generations will demand answers as to why we threw away our freedom in lieu of communism.

To quote Gustavo Gutierrez (the "father" of liberation theology,) "There is no evil in being subversive, struggling against the capitalist system...Liberation leads to reinterpreting the Gospel...As I have witnessed the power of Marxism to provide motivation for a life of service where none existed before, I have come to a new appreciation of this part of my own history. I cannot settle for any story of America that fails to give a central place to this vision."

Again, Roger Garaudy (one of France's foremost Marxist intellectuals) wrote, "Socialism is a traditional stage in the passage from capitalism to communism." Also, "When the established order involves such injustice that millions of men are exploited, oppressed, mutilated, and humiliated by this order, a revolution, even armed revolution, can be less costly and in the long run less 'violent' than this established disorder, which has become pure violence. Of this, incidentally, many Christians are today becoming conscious, including, for example, even priests and bishops in Latin America."

Charles E. Curran, no longer permitted by the Church to teach moral theology at Catholic universities, has stated,"Questions arise in the light of both the importance and the limitations of Scriptures. In the light of the most striking development has been the emergence of dissent within the Roman Catholic theological community from the teachings of the hierarchical magisterium on specific moral issues."

One cannot help but feel an air of approval when local archdiocesan newspapers print articles written by these people. Already we have seen a swing by our priests and educators away from the Church's doctrine of "norma normans non normata"(the Scriptures being the norm above all other norms by which all norms are taken) and are thus shown to question the Scripture's relevance in our daily lives.

Perhaps we need to seek the definition of a couple terms which seem to have taken on good and bad connotations in complete reversal of their intended meanings:

First of all, the term orthodoxy means "right praise," or consistency with the faith of the Church as embodied in Sacred Scripture, the Fathers, official teachings and the liturgy.

Libertaion theology, on the other hand, is defined as a new type of theology which emphasizes the motif of liberation in both Old and New Testaments and which reinterprets all doctrines in terms of that motif. Forms of liberation theology include Latin American, black and feminist.

Jesus "liberated" all of us from the bonds of oppression. Rather than reinterpreting the Gospel, perhaps we would be better served to "live it." This idea may not be popular with some in the Church today, but by returning to the basics of our faith, we will be truly liberated through the instruction of Sacred Scriptures if only we would accept Jesus as the catalyst of our lives.

Guess whose immigration laws these are......

1. Only professionals or investors can immigrate to the country. No "unskilled" laborers will be allowed in. Investors must be able to invest at least "40,000" times the daily average wage. If they can't, they are not allowed in.

2. Immigrants may purchase property, but locations and availability will be limited. Ocean front property cannot be purchased by immigrants. It is exclusively for citizens born in the country.

3. Immigrants cannot vote nor can they be elected to any public office.

4. Immigrants cannot collect any type of government assistance.

5. Immigrants cannot protest the countries government, policies or president.

6. Immigrants cannot display a flag of a foreign country.

7. Immigrants who have illegally entered the country will be found and imprisoned.

These are laws that are currently part of the Immigration Laws of, you guessed it

May Day, the first of May, is traditionally celebrated by Communists as their day of celebration for communist victory around the world. Today being May 1, what better than to remember the 100+ million slaughtered in communist concentration camps, and the hundreds of millions more oppressed and persecuted by Marxist "revolutionaries

This year it's called "Nothing Gringo." Billed by Hispanic organizers (many of whom have ties to socialist and communist organizations) as "A Day Without [Illegal] Immigrants," Monday's demonstrations have the potential to do serious economic damage to metropolitan centers. According to some, however, the demonstrations could fizzle from fear of backlash.

Monday, May 1, 2006, Mexicans south of the border say they'll boycott all things American to protest efforts to control illegal immigration here in our country. Our “neighbors” from south of the border also plan to shut down major cities in the U.S. in their efforts to intimidate Americans into indiscriminately granting amnesty to illegal aliens who are already unlawfully present on sovereign American territory.

California's state senators on Thursday shamefully endorsed Monday's racialist boycott of schools, jobs and stores by illegal aliens and their radical political allies. These seditious lawmakers falsely equated the Mexican-led boycott with “great social movements in American history.” Do not be fooled by this “globaloney” multi-cultural propaganda—this is not a social justice movement, this is an effort to follow the disastrous European model of alien cultural and physical invasion of a sovereign country, in promotion of foreign colonization instead of naturalization. Citizens of the US need to wake up!

Our nation is being overwhelmed with disaffected and disloyal foreign nationals, first and foremost because we lack border security. We MUST restore our nation’s territorial and cultural integrity by securing our borders— HERE is how you can HELP NOW!

GO SHOPPING ON MONDAY !

– Spend American dollars at law abiding American businesses only, and avoid establishments that hire illegally. Check http://www.wehirealiens.com/ for lists of businesses in your state hiring illegally.
