I have been watching the TV series The Chosen, and it’s a remarkable experience to see such a depiction of Jesus’ life through the eyes of the people who knew Him. (snip) Jesus loved children so much that I felt genuine anguish upon learning the Vatican has defrocked a priest for speaking up in defense of the unborn children of the world— (snip) Frank Pavone has been made into a layperson. He is the leader of an anti-abortion group, Priests for Life, and the Vatican issued a snarky statement

It's not quite as cut and dried as you might think. A diocesan priest like Fr. Pavone vows to obey his bishop. Father Pavone has clashed with several bishops and has a reputation as a loose cannon. His heart is in the right place, but his methods can be questionable. I will pray for him,

I absolutely love The CHOSEN. So well done. Fr. Pavone would not have to take such drastic measures if the church leaders would follow the belief of Our Lord. It's quite simple, but, sadly to say the head of our church is a socialist tool!!

Go Woke, Go Broke. This also applies to the Catholic Church which has been taken over by Communists and Pedophiles who have installed the current Communist and Pedophile Pope Francis. The Vatican is now stuffed to the rafters with communist pedophile cardinals and priests.

Peter, the rock upon whom the church was built, denied Jesus three times. The Bible has many accounts of chosen leaders who were as broken as everyone else. Chosen ones who "did what was evil in the sight of the Lord". God gave us the ability to choose, and so many choose the wrong path.

Add this to the list of reasons I no longer attend mass. And please spare me the lectures on how I am denying Christ. I have a perfectly fine relationship with him all on my own.

It appears that the Priesthood is a job where the boss is King, and you do as he says or you get fired. The Church and it's Bishops push illegals into this country, they allow Pelosi and Biden to receive Communion, and now they fire a Priest for his stance on abortion and refusing to bow down to his Bishop and desist. I haven't seen a real Nun in the last 20 years. the Brothers are dying out, my priest shows up for Mass on Sunday and you can't find him the rest of the week, A Deacon says the prayers at the funeral home now the priest doesn't show up until next day for the burial. I will stay in the Church, but in good conscience I cannot support it leadership.

Fr Pavone reminds me of Trump. What he is doing is correct, but how he does it is a different story. That being said, I have more respect for him than I do for most American bishops.

As an excommunicated catholic, I suggest Hailey's Bible Handbook (editions published before 1965) for the history of the Church of Rome. Corruption, debauchery, buying and selling of papacy, a child crowned, the intentional removal of the Bible from the congregation, homosexuality were prevalent centuries ago. I had 12 years in catholic schools. The teaching was good works are the entrance to Heaven. Not true. John 3:16. Accepting Jesus as our Savior is the only way to get there. Defrocking Fr Pavone is another indication of pure evil in the vatican. FYI, I read recently that the vatican has a wealth of $73 TRILLION. I ask why there is 1 starving person on God's green earth? ,

The two parishes that I attend have been, and continue to be, very clear on their opposition to abortion. So has the diocese I'm in. I understand that there are some.... non orthodox people there. I don't need to hear about racism/global warming/socialism/blah blah.... I do need to hear about Jesus, holiness, devotion, repentance.

Il Papa who is suppose to be the Vicar of Christ is forging a "new World Religion" seeking to sell our the 1st Commandment to be friends with sects that hate Christianity. The First Commandment warns us not to accept a religion or philosophy that teaches that our life and well being originate with or depend on anything other than the one true God. There is no pantheon of deities. He met in South Africa in September in an assembly of other religions to do just that.

My parish is very pro-life and so is my priest. I am blessed to be near The Fathers of Mercy (you may have seen them on EWTN) and they are staunchly pro-life. The church will always be pro-life despite some nutty priests and nuns and politicians. I can't help but think Fr. Pavone may be back soon enough.

Recommend any who are distressed by the Vatican's actions take what you might place in the collection plate and instead send it to a non-church affiliated pro-life organization.

Amish farmer wins court battle for 'food

An Amish farmer is back to be able to sell raw milk and meat after a US Appeals Court dropped a $300,000 fine against him is allowing him to resume selling raw milk meat. Amos Miller does not use antibacterial chemicals to sterilize his products, which means it is considered “adulterated,” by the USDA. According to Food Safety News, in a deal negotiated by Miller’s lawyer last week, the $300,000 in fines was negotiated down to $55,000 payable over the next six months and Miller’s contempt of court hearing has been canceled, with the case having been put in stay and abeyance, provided that the farmer makes the payments. CORRECTION*

Arizona Governor Doug Ducey, the weak RINO who was a great personal friend of deceased former U.S. senator John McCain, is tearing down his border wall to serve the Biden administration. The makeshift border wall was made of shipping containers that were lined with barb wire. Arizona will bring them all down by Jan. 4, making it easier for illegals to invade the border, after the Biden regime objected. The U.S Interior and Agriculture departments made a filing arguing that “a declaration that Arizona’s use and occupancy of lands owned by the United States without the required permits or other authorization constitutes unlawful trespasses.”

Much of the American Church has fallen to apostasy and anti-Christian wokeness, in a reckless abandon that forsakes the core tenets of our faith. Some churches have even welcomed hypersexualized drag performances into their places of worship, while others have placed racial makeup ahead of pure and genuine faith. When it comes to other “woke” causes, many (of) our leaders have bent the knee to corporatism and other “promised” worldly possessions, which are in direct violation of the Scriptures. This apostasy has been incredibly difficult for me to witness

Joe Biden’s Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that over a million jobs were created in the second quarter, a heartening statistic that no doubt helped the Democrats in November. But now, the Philadelphia Federal Reserve says that those million jobs were almost entirely fictitious: The Biden administration vastly overstated its estimate that employers created more than 1 million jobs in the second quarter of this year, claiming historic job growth when in fact hiring had stalled, according to a new estimate. Job growth was “essentially flat” in the second quarter with only 10,500 jobs added, the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia said.

Whipple's book, The Fight of His Life: Inside Joe Biden's White House, details how the Biden administration struggled to deal with surging migrant arrivals from Mexico throughout 2021 - and faced mounting criticism.

Here’s one part of the nearly $2 trillion American Rescue Plan passed last year that few people apparently read. The bill included more than half a million dollars in grants for tech researchers to develop artificial intelligence algorithms capable of identifying and suppressing “microaggressions” in social media posts. Part of the money was quietly gifted to researchers at the University of Washington earlier this year and they expect to receive the rest of it in coming years as the development work proceeds. You may find yourself wondering how the federal government wound up handing out taxpayer money to develop ways to automatically censor the free speech of its citizens.

The WHO doesn’t mess around. At least when it comes to spreading propaganda. I will assume for the sake of civility that the WHO genuinely believes that the COVID vaccine is safe and effective. I will even assume that for most people the vaccine is safe, and at least somewhat effective in reducing the likelihood of severe disease in people likely to become deadly ill from COVID, such as the very old and very sick. But I will not concede that critics of the vaccine are spreading misinformation nor stoking unreasonable fears.
