Counties should not issue same-sex marriage licenses

SPRINGFIELD, Ill., March 5, 2014 –As a result of last month's irresponsible judicial decision in Cook County which usurps the proper legislative process, county clerks are now issuing same-sex "marriage" licenses across the state of Illinois.

While U.S. District Judge Sharon Johnson Coleman believes that there "is no reason to delay further" the implementation of Illinois' new same-sex "marriage" law, she evidently fails to recognize that creating, modifying, or implementing state law is outside of the court's purview.

Making and implementing law is strictly a function of the General Assembly. Ignoring the proper roles of the three branches of government sets an extremely dangerous precedent.

When unelected judicial activists like Judge Coleman circumvent the legislative process, they are in essence telling the legislature that they are irrelevant. State lawmakers and county clerks should not be complicit in this gross usurpation of the legislative process.

Vatican asks Catholics for views on sex, marriage, divorce VATICAN CITY, Nov. 3—Catholics across the world are being asked for their views on contraception, same-sex unions and communion for divorced and remarried couples, reports The Tablet and SMH. –Kathleen: This Vatican doesn’t teach, it asks opinions!

Art preservation a great responsibility, say Vatican restorers   VATICAN CITY, Nov. 1—Those in charge of the restoration of various types of artwork in the Vatican museums stress that the preservation of such treasures is necessary on both a historical and an educational level. Kathleen: Some art experts say that a restoration failure at the Sistine Chapel was covered up. They say layers of the final details were unintentionally removed during cleaning. History itself could be changed because we cannot restore or examine what has been washed away accidentally –or otherwise.

Francis ranked fourth 'most powerful' person in world  Oct. 31—Pope [sic] Francis is the fourth "most powerful" person in the world according to American business magazine Forbes, which has just released the names of those it ranks as "the 72 most powerful people" on the planet, reports Vatican Insider. Kathleen: Of course he is. Too bad he’s not Catholic, he would excommunicate pro-abort politicians, and more.

Boy wanders on stage during Pope's address  Oct. 31—At an event in the Vatican this week, Catholic families from around the world gathered to celebrate the Year of Faith with His Holiness [sic]. One boy in a stripey yellow shirt was a little besotted with the bishop of Rome, reports The Australian. Kathleen: Wonder who urged him to go sit in that chair?


Kathleen: This is a politician’s game. See the man (only his head and camera visible) lower right with the big lens taking shots while the other men hold babies up for Francis to kiss. Below there are 5 of his men surrounding him with 4 professional type cameras—while he appears to kiss a man on the forehead.


Kathleen: Above, two of his security men  (same black suits, white cuffs and watches) appear to be holding the child, while a third, behind Francis, takes video from a foot away. BELOW: You can see the photographer behind Francis, and one of his men holding an infant up to him. Note the same color watch band on the wrist.

Pope,World Bank chief discuss joint action on poverty Oct. 29—Pope [sic] Francis and World Bank president Jim Yong Kim have discussed the possibility of working together in the struggle against global extreme poverty during a meeting at the Vatican.

For me the most important part of this book is his "Questioning the Validity of  the Masses Using the New All-English Canon." He called my attention to the risk, nay the certainty, of idolatry. Everyone can profit from his work, even those of us who have read it previously.




NIKITARONCALLI: Counterlife of a Pope

by Franco Bellegrandi

The author served for years on the Vatican's Noble Guard and as an editor at the Vatican's newspaper, L'Osservatore Romano. Unfortunately, his informative and well-written book has never been published in English.

by Luigi Villa
The author has fought freemasonry and communism more than half a century, and knows his subject. He documents his work with over three hundred footnotes, which we have mostly omitted because we consider Monsignor Villa sufficient authority on his own specialty. The book was written just over a decade ago, but much of its content was published earlier in his periodical, Chiesa Viva, some of it more than once. So if you find it somewhat repetitious, be assured of his different treatment of each "redundancy."

This important book has never been published in English.

The Truth Behind Benedict’s Resignation

Kathleen Plumb

Editor, The Four Marks

Feb. 28 —A year ago Benedict XVI resigned, and the Vatican is still trying to squelch speculation: Was he forced to vacate the chair? Were physical limitations really to blame, or was it the butler and the Vatican Bank and other scandals even worse that required fresh blood?   

If such questions were not warranted, not prevalent among Catholics, Benedict would not still be answering them. One example of Benedict responding to the many negative news stories involves an Italian journalist on Vatican Radio. Reported elsewhere are his empty (ipse dixit) replies to what were termed “conspiracy theories.”

Al Kresta is a high-profile author, media host and convert to Catholicism. Addressing the diverse speculations Kresta says, "The resignation of a Pope for the first time in 600 years signaled more than just a tired Pope. It opened the door to new ways of being Catholic."

Yes, that is what the Novus Ordo is all about: “new ways of” doing things. One of those “new ways” is by having two “popes”!

Ex-Gays File Sexual Orientation Discrimination Complaint with Department of Justice

ROCKVILLE, Md. –Parents   and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays (PFOX) has filed a sexual orientation discrimination complaint with the Department of Justice and the Department of Education against the Montgomery County, Maryland Board of Education and its School Superintendent, Joshua Starr.

PFOX requests the federal agencies initiate an investigation into the discriminatory practices of Superintendent Starr and the Montgomery County school board and to oversee a remedial program to ensure diversity and non-discrimination against ex-gays.

"Starr misused his official position as school superintendent to gain access to students and indoctrinate them with his prejudicial bias against the ex-gay community," said Regina Griggs, executive director of PFOX. "The Department of Justice has investigated complaints against schools for discriminating against
transgenders –those  who have changed their gender identity. The ex-gay community –those  who have changed their sexual orientation –asks for equal treatment from our federal government."

After PFOX distributed ex-gay flyers to high school students as part of the schools' flyer distribution program for non-profit organizations, Starr publicly
denigrated PFOX and former homosexuals by calling the actions of PFOX "reprehensible and deplorable" and labeling the flyer's sexual orientation freedom stance as "a really, really disgusting message."

"PFOX's flyers provided information on unwanted same-sex attractions, discouraged student name calling, and urged tolerance for former homosexuals," Griggs said. "Starr does not respect real diversity. As school superintendent, Starr's actions make it impossible for Montgomery County public schools to provide an atmosphere where everyone is treated fairly and with respect, and free from discrimination and abuse, as mandated by its sexual orientation nondiscrimination policy.

"Although PFOX has participated in the MCPS flyer distribution program for five years, Starr and the school board admitted that they closed the entire program in order to keep out ex-gays. Their actions are reminiscent of the 1950s Jim Crow South, when public pools were closed rather than allow the participation of African-Americans."

Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays is the leading ex-gay advocacy organization.

UP TV Presents: The Passion of the Christ

A Special One-Night Television Event
Palm Sunday

10 Years after It Made Box-Office History, Mel Gibson's Oscar®-Nominated Movie Premieres with Limited Commercial Interruption on Sunday, April 13, 2014 at 9 p.m. EDT/6 p.m. PDT

ATLANTA, March 12 -- The Passion of the Christ, Mel Gibson's blockbuster retelling of Jesus' final hours, will make its commercial television premiere on the UP television network on Palm Sunday.
Ten years after it captivated the world and made box office history, the powerful, provocative and three-time Oscar®-nominated and People's Choice winner The Passion of the Christ will air with limited commercial interruption on UP. Presented as part of UP's two-week celebration of Easter, the one-night television event takes place at 9 p.m. EDT/6 p.m. PDT on Palm Sunday, April 13, 2014.

"UP is proud to present this powerful, groundbreaking cinematic portrayal of Christ's death and resurrection as the centerpiece of our extensive Easter programming," said Charley Humbard, president and CEO, UP. "The Passion of the Christ is a story of unconditional love: the love of a Mother for her son and the love of a Son for his Heavenly Father -- and for all mankind. This film depicts the story that is at the very heart of Christianity. It truly epitomizes our holiday theme: 'Easter Lives Here.'"

The release of The Passion of the Christ coincided with the founding of UP a decade ago. Today the network is one of the largest producers of faith-friendly films. Since its launch, through the end of 2014 UP will have produced 40 original films, with 18 scheduled to premiere this year and 20 additional original films scheduled for 2015.

First released theatrically in 2004, The Passion of the Christ took in $612 million at the worldwide box office, becoming the highest grossing independent film of all time. The film remains the highest-grossing religious film in history. Since then, it has never aired on a commercial network. Directed by Mel Gibson (Braveheart, Apocalypto) from a script by Gibson and Benedict Fitzgerald, the film stars Jim Caviezel (The Prisoner, Person of Interest) as Jesus and Monica Bellucci (The Matrix Reloaded, The Sorcerer's Apprentice) as Mary Magdalene. UP will air an edited-for-television version provided by the producer.

Spoken entirely in reconstructed Aramaic and Latin with subtitles, The Passion of the Christ focuses on the last 12 hours of Jesus of Nazareth's life. The film begins in the Garden of Olives where Jesus has gone to pray after the Last Supper. Jesus must resist the temptations of Satan. Betrayed by Judas Iscariot, Jesus is then arrested and taken within the city walls of Jerusalem where leaders of the Pharisees confront him with accusations of blasphemy and his trial results in a condemnation to death. 
In addition to its massive popularity with audiences in the U.S. and abroad, The Passion of the Christ was lauded by numerous major film critics. USA Today's Claudia Puig wrote at the time, "Gibson has made a stunning film, beautifully photographed in contrasting dark and golden hues by Caleb Deschanel," adding, "Caviezel plays Jesus with magnetism, dignity and humility." The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Phil Kloer described it as a "movie so singular, so intense, so overwhelming that it simply has to be experienced" and James Berardinelli of ReelViews described it as "a gripping, powerful motion picture -- arguably the most forceful depiction of Jesus' death ever to be committed to film." Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times commented, "I was moved by the depth of feeling, by the skill of the actors and technicians, by their desire to see this project through no matter what," while Richard Roeper of TV's Ebert & Roeper called it "the most powerful, important and by far the most graphic interpretation of Christ's final hours ever put on film."

The Passion of the Christ was produced independently and filmed in Italy -- primarily at Cinecittà Studios in Rome, in the old city of Matera, and in the ghost town of Craco. The estimated $30 million production cost, plus an additional estimated $15 million in marketing costs, were fully borne by Gibson and his company, Icon Productions. As one of the most successful independent movies of all time, The Passion of the Christ overnight created a new market for faith-based and faith-friendly films, and inspired filmmakers around the world. A decade later in 2014, The Bible continues to inspire audiences as films including Son of God, Noah and Exodus will be released theatrically.

The Passion of the Christ received numerous industry and critical awards, including the People's Choice Award for Favorite Motion Picture Drama, the National Board of Review Award for Freedom of Expression and ShoWest's Consumers Choice for Favorite Movie Award. The film was nominated for three Academy Awards: Best Cinematography, Best Makeup and Best Original Score. Gibson was named Hollywood Producer of the Year at the Hollywood Film Festival. The instrumental original movie soundtrack, one of three soundtracks for the film, also received a GMA Dove Award for Instrumental Album of the Year.

In addition, The Passion of the Christ was voted the most pro-Catholic film of all time by readers of Faith & Family magazine and the National Catholic Register newspaper. It received more votes from readers than the next three films on the list combined: The Sound of Music (1965), A Man for All Seasons (1966) and The Song of Bernadette (1943). In June 2006, Entertainment Weekly named The Passion of the Christ #1 on its list of "The 25 Most Controversial Movies of All Time."

U.S. Supreme Court asked to review prejudicial Kansas Attorney General suspension

 Life Legal Defense Foundation Supports Phill Kline's Petition Against Politically Punitive Ruling

WASHINGTON, March 11-- In a legal ethics case that has been heavily tainted by the abortion debate, former Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline has petitioned the United States Supreme Court to review and overturn a Kansas Supreme Court decision suspending his law license. This punishment was levied as a result of his legal actions against Kansas abortion clinics. Life Legal Defense Foundation is supporting Kline in his quest to have the highly prejudicial and punitive Kansas decision overturned.

"The request to the U.S. Supreme Court is loaded with support from other state courts and legal commentators. It asks the Court to rein in unforeseeable 'gotcha' ethics violations, which are especially relevant to lawyers dealing with politically contentious legal proceedings and invite political 'witch hunts,'" stated Tom Condit, lead attorney for Phill Kline.

Kline's case hinges on the court's selective application of these ill-defined "catch-all" attorney disciplinary rules in a way that has punished Kline for his pro-life political views. The court suspended Kline's law license. The petition stipulates that it did so by second guessing tough judgment calls that Kline was forced to make. The difficulty lay in the particularly novel situations, some of which were created by the Kansas Supreme Court itself. The brief also demonstrates the court's clear enhancement of Kline's punishment because of his political viewpoint.

Dana Cody, President and Executive Director of Life Legal Defense Foundation, said, "Phill Kline's ethics case has always carried a strong flavor of political persecution, a perception validated by how many of his so-called 'violations' arose from factual and legal novelties."

Cody noted that one disturbing factor in this case is that while Kline was punished harshly for minor, if not irrelevant, inaccuracies in what he and his staff wrote or said, the Kansas Supreme Court opinion was itself indefensibly wrong on the facts and the law. The petition does not, she explained, expect the U.S. Supreme Court, having limited jurisdiction, to correct all of those errors but asks the Court to rein in how those vague ethics rules can be used to blind-side unsuspecting attorneys.

Read the petition filed March 10, 2014, on Kline's behalf with the U.S. Supreme Court here.
