Go forth and blog, says Pope –

To Catholics, obviously

The Pope has urged Catholics to take up the internet - though he's rather generously suggested that the rest of us heathens shouldn't actually be booted out…

The Pope has been getting increasingly interested in technology, last year meeting with executives fromFacebookWikipedia and Google to discuss digital youth culture. Read more ---- Google logo ------Globe 

"For what will it profit a man 
he gains the whole world
forfeits his soul?
Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?”
Matthew 16:26

Kids Are Being Hurt!!!

whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck, and to be drowned in the depth of the sea. 
Matthew 18:6

New World of Communication - Lost Credibility

11:50 … [Helen], How does one really report in an administration that is in effect is dedicated to giving relatively little out and to spinning what it does give out? Orville Schell

Will I think that it is very difficult, especially when everything they have said practically, now, in terms of a preemptive war evading Iraq without provocation.  Everything has come home to roost so quickly, because this is a new world of communication. Everyone is wired. Everyone is on camera. And it is very little room, running room for really being that deceptive. Helen Thomas

Accountability - Getting the Truth, 
Root Causes of 911? 
15:27… It is very clear that this administration did not want to the root causes of terrorism. What is terrorism? Why? We were the most beloved.  We had a halo. We were on a pedestal. And then all of a sudden we are hated. And no one wants to find out why? The president has tried to kill major investigations of getting to the root causes of this – Bin Laden, the whole phenomena. There is something ongoing now but it is very slow mail.  To get to the truth, I mean how can you solve a problem unless you know the cause. Helen Thomas  ---- The Bush White House: How Covering the Beat has Changed  video -
