EWTN NEWS | 'Boycott highlights Starbucks' radical stance on marriage' by Benjamin Mann | Washington D.C., Mar 24, 2012 / 07:14 am

http://www.ewtnnews.com/catholic-news/US.php?id=5137 "“To say that they respect our opinion, when they've decided to use their clout as a corporation to redefine marriage, makes no sense,” he stated. “The way you respect our opinion is to stay out, not to take a corporate position.”


Brown also accused Starbucks of “lying to its shareholders and customers” in different parts of the world.

“On the Middle Eastern website, Starbucks Corporation says it takes no political stance. This is a political stance.”

“And the reason it does that, is because it knows that in the Middle East, in Southeast Asia, and all these areas, same-sex 'marriage' is overwhelmingly opposed. Therefore, it's telling its customers and shareholders one thing, and doing something entirely different.”

The National Organization for Marriage has never before called for a corporate boycott. It is doing so now, Brown said, because of Starbucks' decision to antagonize many of its employees and customers.

Individuals, he said, have a “right to speak and donate … to any candidate or cause that they choose.”

“It's a very different thing when your corporation itself takes a stand – stands up in the public square and says, essentially, those of us who believe that marriage is the union of a man and a woman are wrong, and they are going to fight against us.”

According to Brown, Starbucks' corporate culture is already becoming hostile to many Christians, Jews, Muslims, and others who support authentic marriage.
“I think that's already the case, by their own statements,” Brown noted.

“You can't, on one hand, say you 'respect our views' – and then engage the full weight of your corporation to stand against them in the public square.”"

Supporters of authentic marriage between a man and woman are being urged to “Dump Starbucks,” over the corporation's push to give the institution a radically different meaning.

Kony 2012: "Invisible Children" campaign, a Blatant deception, and hurting Uganda

Kony 2012: "Invisible Children" campaign, a Blatant deception, and hurting Uganda
Portrays a situation from almost a decade ago, no longer in existence, to raise money

The explicit, publicly disturbing, next to naked parading of himself, by the organizer of the Kony 2012 campaign (now in hospital for psychological breakdown), may be getting many stories. The fact, that his Kony 2012 campaign to raise money for his Invisible Children Non-Governmental Organization/Charity : used blatant deception, is less well known.



"Kony's Lord's Resistance Army is a shadow of its former self, numbering about 250 members, according to a December 2011 report published by the Social Science Research Council.

Some 200 of them are with Kony in the Central African Republic, and 50 others are in the Democratic Republic of Congo, the report said.

The video Russell directed, interspersing shots of his own young son with those of suffering Ugandan children, depicts children walking into the city centre of the Uganda city of Gulu at night to avoid capture.

But active violence like that has not been seen in northern Uganda in seven or eight years, according to Laura Seay, a professor at Morehouse College, who studies conflict and community in central Africa."

http://www.news24.com/Africa/News/Anti-Kony-campaign-in-turmoil-as-AU-sends-troops-20120324



 Kony, and his LRA are shadows of what they once were, and deep in hiding, not in Uganda. This is a fact to remember, with only 50 troops of the "Lord's Resistance Army" in DR Congo, and 200 with Kony, having fled into the depths of the Central African Republic.



""LRA victims are depicted as absolutely helpless," Seay said, characterising the portrayal as neo-colonial and saying the film may have mischaracterised the nature of Gulu, where the number of children taking nightly refuge dwindled after a truce between government forces and the LRA in 2006.

"You have coffee shops and pizza places in Gulu. It's absolutely peaceful," she said.

Seay suggested that those whose interest in the region were piqued by the Invisible Children campaign turn their attention next to more active warlords in the region such as Bosco Ntaganda, nicknamed "The Terminator," and also wanted by the ICC for war crimes.

Ntaganda, a Rwandan operating in the Democratic Republic of Congo, is accused of conscripting child soldiers under age 15 to carry arms and fight in open conflict.
"He walks freely," Seay said. "I know where he eats dinner every night.""

'"You must never buy the story that we are anti-white and we want whites to be driven into the sea. This is your home, your country and it belongs to all of us," he declared.


"I would die in defence of the white minority - they must enjoy the same rights as Africans. But when we say we must share, it doesn't mean we are fighting - we are actually protecting you," he said.

He insisted that he would never change his mind over the "expropriation of land without compensation", saying the African National Congress should adopt the principle.

"This land was robbed, stolen. A black genocide was committed against those who owned the land ... I will never agree with the rewarding of those who stole our land,"'

Obama Contraception Mandate Against existing Federal Laws, and against USA Constitution- Top USA Legal Experts claim

Obama Contraception Mandate Against existing Federal Laws, and against USA Constitution- Top USA Legal Experts claim
No pressing government reason, not least restrictive means (Title X: taxpayer money, it's claimed: would be), against Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993, and USA constitution

A relevent side note: Most abortions, tend to occur, when the mother was on contraception already in the month of conception. STDs, such as HIV Aids, also tend to spread more, when condom use is encouraged. Simply put, contraception and "protection" encourages more dangerous behaviour, just as my car's good grip and airbags and seat belt encourage me to go faster. And interestingly enough, tend to have the reverse of the intended effect. More faith is put into them than they really deserve scientifically, and so the effect is the reverse.

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act's powers to the Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, seem to be being abused by the Secretary, and USA Democrat President Barack Obama, in forcing Catholics and others to pay for contraception, sterilization, and abortion inducing drugs. "George Mason University law professor Helen Alvaré", "Michael McConnell, a former federal judge and current law professor at Stanford University Law School ", are two panelists quoted in this view (that the HHS mandate is an illegal abuse), from the 'March 22 panel on “Religious Freedom and Healthcare Reform,” sponsored by the Religious Freedom Project at Georgetown University's Berkley Center for Religion, Peace and World Affairs'.

Um... The Dutch Catholic Church... DIDN'T CASTRATE Those ten boys... actually
Serious holes in New York Times story, and history of the case suggest otherwise

Mark Shea, of the National Catholic Register newspaper, quotes a view from Get Religion, on the castration issue, which he believes, adequately shines doubt on New York Times Reporting, here's the quote of the quote:


Patheos | 'Catholic and Enjoying it by Mark Shea'| 'As I suspected, there’s a lot less to the Dutch Castration Story' by Mark Shea at March 21, 2012

http://www.patheos.com/blogs/markshea/2012/03/as-i-suspected-theres-a-lot-less-to-the-dutch-castration-story.html

"Read through the journal article and you will find all the details you will ever want to read about a dark chapter of Western medicine which saw castration as a tool in a public health program to improve the human race through eugenics and to combat what that age saw as criminal sexual deviancy.

The Times story fails the test of good journalism on several levels. It begins with an over the top headline and lede that implies the existence of Catholic cabal worthy of Dan Brown that preyed on young men — abusing them and castrating them.

It offers uncorroborated anecdotal evidence from a man dead 54 years to insinuate the Church was complicit in a gruesome crime — yet we don’t know if it was a crime. The history offered is full of gaps and makes assumptions — was the victim in the care of a Catholic institution when he reported the abuse? Was he passed from Catholic institutional custodial care to a Catholic-affiliated psychiatric hospital to a Catholic-affiliated surgery center for sterilization? Under what circumstances was the claim of abuse made? The journal article reports that castration was ordered by the state for those found to be mentally deficient or who were incorrigible sexual offenders. Who was the victim? Could the Catholic Church order the castration of a young man? How was that possible?

Professionally this is sloppy work. It is also offensive. The Catholic pedophile scandal in Holland is a horrific case of abuse, betrayal and evil. Tossing the incendiary charge of castration into this cesspit of moral corruption cheapens the suffering of those who were abused. It tells the true victims of abuse, “well it could have been worse, you could have been castrated.”
There is a story in this mess that a good journalist could bring out — a story of state sanctioned abuse of those whom science adjudged to be defective — of a church that relaxed its standards in the face of government and public opinion. We do not get that here. (One of the lacunae in the journal article is the objection by Catholic theologians in the 1930s to state castration programs on moral grounds and its disquiet over the whole field eugenics.)"

Washington Post Attacks Barack Obama government
"Unlimited Powers", "financial Manipulation", "violating the constitution"

The Washington Post, while asserting a critical theory of law, which dishonours the courts perhaps, has an interesting article slamming Obama.

See this article from the usually Obama-phile Post.

Post Opinions | The Washington Post | 'Obamacare: The reckoning' by Charles Krauthammer, a Washinton Post Opinion Writer | Friday, March 23, 1:50 AM

http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/obamacare-the-reckoning/2012/03/22/gIQALF1QUS_story.html

"But now that the near-costless years 2010 and 2011 have elapsed, the true 10-year price tag comes into focus. From 2013 through 2022, the CBO reports, the costs of Obamacare come to $1.76 trillion — almost twice the phony original number.
It gets worse. Annual gross costs after 2021 are more than a quarter of $1 trillion every year — until the end of time. That, for a new entitlement in a country already drowning in $16 trillion of debt."

"Beginning Monday, the Supreme Court will hear challenges to the law. The American people, by an astonishing two-thirds majority, want the law and/or the individual mandate tossed out by the court. In practice, however, questions this momentous are generally decided 5 to 4 — i.e., they depend on whatever side of the bed Justice Anthony Kennedy gets out of that morning.

Ultimately, the question will hinge on whether the Commerce Clause has any limits. If the federal government can compel a private citizen, under threat of a federally imposed penalty, to engage in a private contract with a private entity (to buy health insurance), is there anything the federal government cannot compel the citizen to do?
If Obamacare is upheld, it fundamentally changes the nature of the American social contract. It means the effective end of a government of enumerated powers — i.e., finite, delineated powers beyond which the government may not go, beyond which lies the free realm of the people and their voluntary institutions. The new post-Obamacare dispensation is a central government of unlimited power from which citizen and civil society struggle to carve out and maintain spheres of autonomy."

"All institutions — excepting only churches, but not excepting church-run charities, hospitals, etc. — will be required to offer health care that must include free contraception, sterilization and drugs that cause abortion."

"(1) Contraception, sterilization and abortion pills are classified as medical prevention. On whose authority? The secretary of health and human services, invoking the Institute of Medicine. But surely categorizing pregnancy as a disease equivalent is a value decision disguised as science. If contraception is prevention, what are fertility clinics? Disease inducers? And if contraception is prevention because it lessens morbidity and saves money, by that logic, mass sterilization would be the greatest boon to public health since the pasteurization of milk.

(2) This type of prevention is free — no co-pay. Why? Is contraception morally superior to or more socially vital than — and thus more of a “right” than — penicillin for a child with pneumonia?
(3) “Religious” exemptions to this edict extend only to churches, places where the faithful worship God, and not to church-run hospitals and charities, places where the faithful do God’s work. Who promulgated this definition, so stunningly ignorant of the very idea of religious vocation? The almighty HHS secretary."

Obama attempts to deceive American Public with non-negotiated not compromise: attacks Catholics for objecting


(SACNS Americas NewsScripturelink Catholic Voters' Guide and PoliticsSocial Justice South Africa)

Obama attempts to deceive American Public with non-negotiated not compromise
United States Conference of Catholic Bishops claim that the mandate that insurance companies provide contraception, abortion pills, sterilization free of charge to the Catholic Church and its institutions, is a deception. They say they will still indirectly pay for the services, and that the conscience opt out must be both for buyers and for sellers of insurance, as pregnancy they say is not a disease. Obama supporters such as the Catholic Health Association's leaders who some claim to have negotiated the change, along with some democrats have seemingly withdrawn support for a bill allowing opting out of providing money for preventing life being born.

"The bishops had initially called the compromise “a first step in the right direction.” But late Friday they released a second statement saying that the plan raised “a grave moral concern.” Mr. Doerflinger said the reason was that they did not see the rule itself until 7 p.m.; the administration official said, however, that the new rule had not been written yet because the details had not been hashed out, and that the bishops must have read the old rule.

The bishops also were dismayed that the administration did not consult them in crafting the compromise, presenting it to them as a fait accompli.

Mr. Doerflinger said, “We were not part of the negotiation and we were told there wasn’t one by the White House.”

The bishops used the turn of events to renew their objections to the broad requirement that was part of the sweeping health care overhaul passed in 2010 that any employer who has a moral or religious objection — even a small business owner — must offer birth control in their insurance coverage because it is preventive care.

“All the other mandated ‘preventive services’ prevent disease, and pregnancy is not a disease,” the bishops said.
Jackie Calmes, Charlie Savage and Matt Flegenheimer contributed reporting."

""The double standard is clear for all to see," Bozell wrote. "You are ignoring the attack on the freedom of religion by the Obama administration, but coming to the aid of [abortionists and Obama allies] Planned Parenthood because you agree with them."

[...]

• ABC and NBC waited 16 days to cover the anti-Catholic ruling, finally citing the new rule on "This Week" and "Meet the Press" on February 5.
• CBS waited 10 days to mention it on "This Morning" and provided no subsequent coverage.
• CNN briefly mentioned the rule when it was announced on January 20th, then didn't bother to mention it again for 10 days.


Yet, Bozell wrote, "in reaction to a decision that would affect vastly fewer potential patients, the networks pounced on the Susan G. Komen Foundation's decision to cease a measly $480,000 in a grant to Planned Parenthood, the country's largest abortion provider." Timothy Dolan, president of the Catholic Conference of Bishops, was among several church leaders copied on the letter by Bozell.

Brazillian acceptance as a culture - of Pedophilia a huge barrier in getting Catholic leaders to act on abuse- Vatican expert

Brazillian acceptance as a culture - of Pedophilia a huge barrier in getting Catholic leaders to act on abuse- Vatican expert

Tolerance of adults dating children and adolescents in Brazil, means that the church itself, unlike in Europe and North America, faces a culture that sees Pedophilia as a good thing. Brazil's sexual preferences and lack of church control of what is decent or not, and the presence of the smallest womens' swimwear in the world, tend to affirm rather than deny this evidence of a Vatican psychologist!

""There is no idea of what could or should be done," Father Edenio Valle, a psychologist who advises the National Conference for Brazilian Bishops (CNBB) and provides counselling for priests, told a Vatican meeting on the issue.

"Effective measures and procedures on the part of the Church in the short, medium and long term, as far as I know, are not being planned," he said.

"Underlying problems are not seriously debated," he added.

"There are no places of refuge, recuperation and care for the victims. Generally, they are just removed from the scene," he said.

Valle said there was a willingness in the Brazilian Church - partly due to the Vatican's insistence - to find "competent and urgent answers," but that this was made more difficult by greater cultural tolerance for paedophilia.
"This relative moderation in relation to the scandals of Catholic fathers is due to the fact that paedophilia and ephebophilia are behaviours that are culturally more tolerated in Brazil than in Europe and North America," he said."

Johannesburg Catholic School sex scandal: Grade 8s allegedly forced to 'rape' school 'chair' and 'bus seat' by Matrics (Seniors)

Johannesburg Catholic School sex scandal: Grade 8s allegedly forced to 'rape' school 'chair' and 'bus seat' by Matrics (Seniors)
The MEC for Education's spokeswoman says if true the alleged gang behaviour violates the law. The School's representative released a statement condemning the behaviour if true, and stating they would put the welfare of the grade 8s allegedly victimized first

With school 'initiation' repeatedly hitting headlines, since the sexual abuse alleged at Parktown, a Catholic school has gotten its own share of the spotlight. The Offense while not the same as Parktown, still violates the law and is sexual abuse if proven to be more than just alleged. Mock rapes also would suggest real rapes to come, making this perhaps more serious than the terrible human rights abuses alleged at other school settings.

The prompt response to media, by the school not the SACBC which likely wouldn't respond, in this case (by the school) is a good sign. The SACBC Southern African Catholic Bishops Conference, under the very unprofessional press leadership of Fr Chris Townsend, usually ignores any media requests on scandalous accusations or punishes journalist, such as the SACNS for reporting on them (we now get SACBC press releases long after papers such as the Mail and Guardian after refusing to censor an interview we did).

"Education spokesperson Charles Phahlane said Education MEC Barbara Creecy phoned the St David's Marist Inanda school on Saturday about the allegation.

"If this is true, it is very serious because it violates the SA Schools Act and the Sexual Offences Act," Phahlane said.

Headmaster Malcolm Williams and chief executive of the school, Mike Greeff, said in a statement that the school board, management and the staff condemned conduct that intimidated, humiliated or frightened anyone."

White / European / Caucasian, call it what you want, but South Africa's lighter skinned residents face extinction according to a recent study


White / European / Caucasian, call it what you want, but South Africa's lighter skinned residents face extinction according to a recent study
Race Relations report attributes low birth rates and high immigration, ignoring the fact... white South Africans are the subject of Government imposed discrimination.

Ruling party officials including the President, Jacob Zuma, have claimed that English speaking whites are not true South Africans.

The ANC, every election, campaigns on the basis that Whites are a threat to the population. Parts of the country, due to intimidation, are not safely accessible to whites.

"Farm Murders", similar to the land invasions of Zimbabwe are now commonplace, especially against farmers who won't give or sell their land to the government, to be given to black communities who are the grassroots support of the Ruling Africanist Political Party: the ANC or African National Congress. The study authors site a growing mixed race population as a cause for concern, given the possibility of a court case to give a child of a white and black the same rights / benefits as black South Africans in a workplace where discrimination against non-whites is legally enforced.

"Johannesburg - If a new study is anything to go by, South Africa’s white population may be extinct by the year 2161.

A new report by the South African Institute of Race Relations revealed that the country’s white population was declining by about 0.3% every five years.

The decline has been attributed by the institute to lowered fertility rates affecting the middle class across all population groups, as well to continued white emigration.

City Press extrapolated the figures and discovered that, if the current decline trends persisted, white South Africans would be extinct by the year 2161.
Figures contained in the institute’s yearly South Africa Survey showed that South Africa’s white and Indian population were declining, while the country’s coloured and black African population groups were growing."
