U.S. Catholic Bishops Move to Reinforce Ban on Birth Control

U.S. Catholic Bishops Move to Reinforce Ban on Birth Control. Here it comes. Bishops reaffirming the Church's stance on birth control. Up to this very day, I still hear Catholics say that we can do whatever we want in this area. I wonder how those Catholics will respond to this. Here is a snippet:

The nation's Roman Catholic bishops, acknowledging that American Catholics pay little heed to their teaching on contraception, launched an effort today to reinforce the ban on birth control and linked it to the anti-abortion campaign.

Holding their regular meeting in Washington, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops tackled another sexuality issue today. They approved the text of a brochure that lays out the church's condemnation of same-sex unions.

The contraception question was introduced by the Committee for Pro-Life Activities, the bishops' anti-abortion committee, which proposed the writing of an easily understandable booklet. The booklet would address questions about the church's teaching on marriage and sex, why "natural family planning" - seeking or avoiding pregnancies according to the fertility cycle - is acceptable and why it believes birth control is wrong.

Loving a Church, Living the Faith

Loving a Church, Living the Faith: A Response to Andrew Sullivan by Nathan Nelson. Read about a Catholic who is trying to live the holy life that Jesus calls us all to live. Instead of tearing the Church down and telling the Church how it should follow his impulses, Mr. Nelson is willing to obey the call and submit his will to the will of God. Good stuff. Read his conversion story here.

The UN and Abortion

Harbor any thoughts that the UN is a 'basically good' organization? Flip through this article and see the deeds. Taste the fruit. Smell the stench. Here is a morsel:

In an accompanying document, entitled "Review of International Standards for Rights of the Child and Adolescent Rights," UNESCO describes how to pressure individual nations that have not embraced this adolescent reproductive rights revolution, saying that it is now possible "to hold countries accountable on the basis of human rights violations" at the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (UNHCHR) and the Committee on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW).
NOT allowing unfettered access to abortion for adolescent 'women' is a 'human rights violation'??? People, this is where we are. We aren't heading there, we are there. All of us 'good' people look around at all the other 'good' people. Standing around. Doing nothing.

Thank God there are people who aren't like me and are doing something. Lord, convert me to your will.
