Margaret Sanger, Hater

Margaret Sanger , founder of Planned Parenthood, a hater of the Catholic Church, liar extraordinaire, spins her web during an interview with Mike Wallace from 1957. The interview is lengthy but worth the time. Interestingly, Wallace confronts Sanger when she contradicts herself multiple times during the interview with previous statements and correspondence. She spins, backpedals and goes on tangents. Listen to her answer about birth control increasing promiscuity.

To be clear, the Catholic Church does not demand or require a married woman to have a baby every year, instead, the married couple merely needs to be open to life. Also, the arguments Sanger uses against the Catholic Church are practically verbatim what cafeteria catholics use: a bunch of old celibates making rules; what do those old men know about married life or sex?

Margaret Sanger was a racist and follower of eugenics. Merriam Webster defines eugenics as a science that deals with the improvement (by control of human mating) of hereditary qualities of a race or breed. Is it any wonder that Planned Parenthood abortion mills are found in the poorest neighborhoods? More african-americans are killed from abortion than aids, accidents, violent crime, heart disease or cancer. On average, nearly 2000 black babies are aborted in the United States. Nearly half of all black pregnancies end tragically in abortion.

Another famous advocate of eugenics was Adolf Hitler. Different targets, different techniques, same goal.

NOW, where's your outrage?

Alexandra Nunez died earlier this week in New York as a result of a botched abortion. A woman from the clinic callously claimed, ""The patient was transferred to the hospital, she didn't die at the clinic...Nothing happened here."
Nothing happened here. A woman bled to death due to butchery but 'nothing happened'.

Where is NOW? Why is there no outcry for this woman and her family? Why is NOW focused on preventing the airing of the Tebow Superbowl ad instead of this woman's death? Shouldn't an organization that claims to be for women be calling for that abortion clinic to be shut down before more women are killed or injured?

Isn't a botched abortion the whole rally cry behind the pro-abortion argument? That no woman should have to die in a back-alley abortion clinic? Pro-aborts wave pictures of wire hangers around with the the declaration of 'Never again!" So, why are they not up in arms about this young woman's death? Death, injury and sterility due to abortion are much, much more common than the evil empire, Planned Parenthood, and other abortion mills would have us know.

Please pray for the soul of Alexandra Nunez and her family.

Entertained by Sin

What do you do for entertainment? What do you read? What do you watch? With what do you fill your eyes, ears and mind? I was reading a book the other day written about Pope John Paul II. The author made a comment that in older generations, especially in Europe, the images that filled their minds were icons, religious paintings or statues but in the United States, our minds, eyes and ears are filled with images from Hollywood.

We, as a nation, entertain ourselves with the ills of the world. We watch movies about gruesome murderers, rapists, drug dealers and other criminals filled with disasters, explosions and sex. The good guys aren't always so good and they don't always win. We watch movies that mock religion. We listen to music that is filled with violence and disrespect. We read magazines rife with celebrities, their lives on display. Magazines full of gossip and sex tips. We play video games full of violence. We become desensitized to others pain.

The author's comment got me thinking. Do I entertain myself with sin? I would have to say, yes, maybe a little bit. I don't play video games of any sort. I don't really watch too much TV and we rarely go to movies anymore since they are so filthy. I especially won't watch anything that glamorizes infidelity, disrespect for marriage or the gay life style as 'normal'. I read a lot of different types of books: fiction: romance, suspense, mysteries and non-fiction: biographies, poetry and religious books, mostly. The romance books I read are not all heaving bosoms and muscular chests but nearly all have pre-marital sex. The mysteries and suspense are more psychological than gruesome. I don't read People or US or Cosmo. Those deal in gossip and pain. They are full of unhappiness: you'll never be rich enough, sexy enough or just enough.

What about you? Do you entertain yourself with sin?
