Hillary Clinton

by Richard Ducayne

WASHINGTON (ChurchMilitant.com – Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s shortlist for vice presidential possibilities has been leaked. The list is quite short and contains two self-identified Catholics.

The first possible pick on the shortlist is Methodist Elizabeth Warren, who has been outspoken about her support for access to abortion. She has supported public abortion funding as well as laws that would force churches to provide birth control, and has said there should be no Supreme Court nominees who oppose legal abortion. Warren has also been a vocal proponent of the LGBT movement.

The second possible pick on Hillary’s VP list is former Ohio senator Sherrod Brown. Brown is a Lutheran and has supported LGBT rights, and has voted against prohibiting same-sex couples from adopting children in Washington. D.C. Sherrod is also a strong advocate for easy access to abortion.

There are other Protestant picks for Hillary’s campaign, but two of her choices include Catholics. One of her picks, Tom Perez, former secretary of labor under the Obama administration, has been involved in scandals that have been swept under the rug.

In 2008, Perez dropped voter intimidation charges against two men from the New Black Panther Party. The men had stood in front of a polling place in Philadelphia with nightsticks and became aggressive when people standing by asked what they were doing.

The case was said to have been straightforward against the two men. This was until the head of the Civil Rights Division — Perez at the time — dropped the case. The attorney who worked for Perez, J. Christian Adams, resigned in protest and said that Barack Obama’s choice of Perez was the “most extreme cabinet nominee in 70 years.”

Perez also relates with Clinton when it comes to the subject of emails. Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa has said it appears Perez used his personal email account almost 1,200 times since 2009 to conduct business. This included communicating with abortion giant Planned Parenthood and the New York Times.

Another Catholic pick by Clinton is Xavier Becerra, who is pro-choice and supports access to abortion. He received a 100 percent rating from Planned Parenthood and NARAL Pro-Choice America in 2012.

Other Catholic potential VPs include Julian Castro, a strong supporter of the LGBT agenda, and Tim Ryan, who used to be known as a pro-life Democrat and now supports abortion. Protestants Eric Garcetti, mayor of Los Angeles, and Cory Booker, senator from New Jersey, also join the list

Fifty-four percent of Catholics voted for Obama in 2008, and 50 percent of Catholics voted for Obama in 2012. Some say this is owing to Barack Obama’s choice of a Catholic running mate in Joseph Biden.

A Prayer for Priests
By St. Therese of Lisieux

O Jesus, eternal Priest,
keep your priests within the shelter of Your Sacred Heart,
where none may touch them.

Keep unstained their anointed hands,
which daily touch Your Sacred Body.

Keep unsullied their lips,
daily purpled with your Precious Blood.

Keep pure and unearthly their hearts,
sealed with the sublime mark of the priesthood.

Let Your holy love surround them and
shield them from the world’s contagion.

Bless their labors with abundant fruit and
may the souls to whom they minister be their joy and consolation here and in heaven their beautiful and everlasting crown. Amen.

I sat with Fr. Gary Thomas who is arguably the best known exorcist in America. This video is a short segment of the unedited raw interview shot for a new documentary film called “Battling Darkness: Hollywood & the Rise of Exorcism”.

In this revealing documentary, leading voices from Hollywood and the Christian community, as well as psychologists and modern-day exorcists, discuss the mysteries of the demonic realm. Through a Biblical understanding and first-hand accounts, the film provides insights into the reality of spiritual warfare and offers keys to victory when you find yourself Battling Darkness.

Prior to 1973, Satan seemed all but dead and gone, the casualty of a modernist mindset. But with Linda Blair’s disturbing performance in The Exorcist, Satan returned with a vengeance. Since that landmark film, audiences worldwide have been fascinated with movies about demonic possession and the spirit realm. However, given Hollywood’s tendency to take creative license, the question arises, “Is the visage of Satan now presented Biblical or distorted?” And more importantly, how have these images influenced society’s consideration of both the demonic and spiritual warfare?

Battling Darkness is a thought-provoking documentary that examines these questions with objectivity and insight from psychologists, modern-day exorcists and leading voices in Christianity.

FEATURES

Linda Blair is an American actress, best known for her role as the possessed child in the 1973 film The Exorcist. For her part in that film, she was nominated for an Academy Award and two Golden Globes, winning one.

Dr. Tony Campolo is an American sociologist, pastor, author, public speaker and former spiritual advisor to U.S. President Bill Clinton. He is a popular commentator on religious, political, and social issues, and has been a guest on programs such as Larry King Live, Nightline, Crossfire, and 100 Huntley Street.

Fr. Gary Thomas has served as the Diocese of San Jose’s official Vatican-certified exorcist for the past six years. His experiences during his training in Rome became the subject of the 2009 book, The Rite: The Making of a Modern Exorcist, by Matt Baglio. The 2011 film, The Rite, starring actor Anthony Hopkins, was based on this book.

Hank Hanegraaf, also known as The Bible Answer Man, is an American author, radio talk-show host and advocate of Evangelical Christianity. He is an outspoken apologist on doctrinal and cultural issues.

Dr. Neil T Anderson is a best-selling author on spiritual freedom, including Victory Over the Darkness, The Bondage Breaker, and The Steps to Freedom in Christ. He is founder and president emeritus of Freedom in Christ Ministries.

How Much More Bizarre Can It Get?

Posted: 15 Jun 2016 03:21 AM PDT

Teenage Boy Wins Girl’s Track Meet

By Father Shenan J. Boquet, President, Human Life International:

Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! (Isaiah 5:20)

How much more bizarre can our society get? It’s a question that many have been asking for a long time, but these days it’s hard to keep up with the answers, which change hourly.

In Alaska, a boy who thinks he’s a girl is allowed to participate in the girls’ track meet, and he wins. The girls are not happy, but are not quite sure how to express their protest since they don’t want to be branded as bigots for calling a boy a boy when that boy wants to be called a girl.

There are a growing number of reports that the man formerly known as Bruce Jenner, who now goes by the name “Caitlyn,” is having second thoughts about “transitioning” to womanhood and is contemplating returning to identifying himself as what he still actually is, a man. This regret is actually common for people who adopt the appearance and lifestyle of the opposite sex. These reports have not been confirmed, but were this to occur, does anyone really think that the fascistic LGBT movement will support such a transition?

A famous homosexual couple has adopted children (apparently two men cannot naturally conceive a child) and projected a carefully cultivated image as a “happily” “married” couple with the help of media who desperately want to tell such a story. Yet as it turns out, their private lives are more sordid than the story allows, and the couple is suing to silence media who would report certain ugly and inconvenient facts, so that their adopted children would be spared the pain of knowing what their adoptive parents actually do.

The idea that the LGBTQQ… movement is about to implode has been discussed recently, and there are signs of sanity coming from progressives who have been supportive of the movement but are starting to recognize its totalitarian and anti-human nature. Better late than never, I suppose.

How Much More Bizarre Can It Get?

I’m not sure the question is meaningful anymore, since all bets are off. There are many conversations going on about how we arrived here, with a great deal of interesting histories of cultural Marxism, Communism, feminism, and other anti-Christian ideologies whose goal has been to “liberate” men and woman from the oppression of religion, marriage, traditional roles of men and women, etc.

I’m not sure the girls in Alaska, Mr. Jenner, or the famous couple and their children feel all that liberated.

When your revolution is based on a lie, it will certainly fall, but it can do a lot of damage to nations, lives and souls before it does. We “got here” because we turned our backs on God. We happen to be living through a deluge of degradation almost unimaginable even a few years ago.

The Church Predicted This

Except that the Church did imagine this collapse. Specifically, Cardinal Ratzinger, later Pope Benedict XVI, said something that could have been written yesterday, in 1984’s The Ratzinger Report (summarized by Christopher West):

What we are living through in our day is the result of an ideology that has completely severed body and soul. And that’s the very definition of death. Barring a divine intervention, we must now endure the full consequences of the “uprooting of the human person in the depth of his nature” – an uprooting that stems from the fact that “sex has remained without a locus and has lost its point of reference” since the cultural embrace of contraception (The Ratzinger Report, p. 84).

By detaching sex from procreation, the essential meaning and natural orientation of the gender distinction is lost and one’s sex is eventually “viewed as a simple role, interchangeable at one’s pleasure,” Ratzinger observed. From there, people end up demanding the right of “escaping from the ‘slavery of nature,’ demanding the right to be male or female at one’s will or pleasure”  (p. 95).

The Consequences of Embracing Contraception

Call this an update of Humanae vitae 17, in which Blessed Pope Paul VI famously predicted — against the spirit of the age — that the wide embrace of contraception would have a host of negative consequences. Those who dismissed Pope Paul, and later Cardinal Ratzinger, simply couldn’t imagine what we are actually seeing happen today, when we call evil good, and good, evil. When we don’t know God, how can we know ourselves?

I love serving a Church that knows the true nature of man and woman because she knows the One in whose image we are made. I love serving a Church that knows what is true and good, a Church that knows Christ because she was founded by Him. I am grateful for her social and moral doctrine, which are rooted in Holy Scripture, and offer true liberation by guiding all people of good will to live in love and truth.

If you are looking around for a rock to hold onto as the flood waters rise and currents seem to pull you away, know that you have it in the One, Holy, Catholic Church. Avail yourself of God’s mercy in the Sacrament of Penance and in His body and blood, soul and divinity in the Blessed Sacrament. Choose from among the many devotions available to the faithful and make your faith central to your life, and invite others to do the same. Be an example of joyful and intelligent faith, and a source of strength for your family and all whom you meet.

Don’t be afraid! Live with courage, faith, hope and love.
