March 4, 2011 – National Secular Society
News that the President of the European Parliament, Jercy Buzek (Christian Democrat) has invited the Pope to address the parliament has been greeted with dismay and anger by secularists in Britain and Europe. Photo

The governor's decision puts him in the same league with disgraced-ex Gov. Eliot Spitzer, who hastily cancelled his 2008 meeting with the Catholic Conference because it took place on the same day his prostitution scandal erupted…

If you shut up truth and bury it under the ground, it will but grow, and gather to itself such explosive power that the day it bursts through it will blow up everything in its way. Emile Zola
What you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight, and what you have whispered in the ear in the inner rooms will be proclaimed from the roofs. Luke 12:3 Photo

You must make the injustice visible – be prepared to die like a soldier to do so.

“Someday, maybe, there will exist a well-informed, well considered and yet fervent public conviction that the most deadly of all possible sins is the mutilation of a child’s spirit.” Erik Erikson
…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
Important note: No disrespect meant to Pope Benedict XVI or the hierarchy, the one and only concern is the safety and well-being of children.
