Florida’s Bishop Barbarito says nothing as liberal, Pro-Choice Democrat claims to be a good Catholic

By Suzanne Eovaldi, staff writer

How weak and hypocritical is Palm Beach diocese Bishop Gerald Barbarito for refusing to respond to the conflicting claims of Democrat Congressman Patrick Murphy that while being “Pro Choice,” he is also “CATHOLIC.”

With a $FIVE million campaign war chest, the 31 year old Murphy moved into District 18 just in time to take advantage of a shameless voter fraud scheme which unseated Lt. Col Allen West in 2012. Now, Murphy is hoping Irish-Catholic given and surnames will convince gullible  Catholics to vote against a great Italian American, Republican Carl Domino, a 27 year career Navy veteran of active duty service in Viet Nam and now in the Reserves. Domino’s vast experience both as an investment manager, small business employer, Florida legislator, better qualifies him for this office than the carpetbagger from Fort Lauderdale who was arrested in a South Beach episode several years ago just at Lt. Col. West was preparing to deploy into a hot war zone.

Is Murphy thinking that voters will choose him him, even though he is nothing but a poseur? How disgraceful that Bishop Barbarito and the diocese should remain silent and let Murphy get away with his deceptions.

This is pro-life month in Catholic churches.  As I drove into our church parking lot yesterday morning, hundreds of pink and blue flags were waving on both sides of the entry to represent the thousands of innocent babies whose lives were snuffed out by abortion.  As Catholics we are organized, solicited, warned to be pro-life; that the RIGHT TO LIFE is the one right that trumps all others. In fact, this notice appears every Sunday in our bulletin:  “October is RESPECT LIFE month and is also the month of the ROSARY.  THE RIGHT to LIFE TRANSCENDS ALL OTHER RIGHTS COMBINED,” as quoted from the writings of Bishop Felipe J. Estevez, St. Augustine, FL.  So why are we hearing nothing from the Military Trail Diocese?  Why does Bishop Barbarito remain silent, allowing Murphy to play an evil trick on District 18 voters?

Though praiseworthy, posting esoteric notices in church bulletins once a week hardly has the same effect as actual words and statements from the good Bishop.  Listen to this double speak in our bulletins:  “Candidate Positions on Catholic Issues…Gubernatorial race and US Representative race District 18: there is one candidate who agrees with the Catholic position on the 5 important issues and ONE WHO IS AGAINST the Catholic position.  Please research.  For information on where the candidates stand on important Catholic issues, you can go to the Florida Catholic Bishops website at www.flccb.or and click on the Candidate Questionnaire Project.”   Huh?  Does this Texas, two-step rhetoric take the place of honest, sincere words spoken aloud to everyone in hailing distance by the leader of Palm Beach Diocese Catholics?  I don’t think so.

So not only is Republican Carl Domino being outspent by the special interest millions at Murphy’s disposal, Domino is not getting a fair shake because of the code of omerta from the Diocese.  The forty days for Life ends just two days before this crucial mid-term election on November 4, a scant few days away.  Prayer and witness sessions are being held in front of local abortion mills.  But statistics quoted in our church bulletins are yet again, just so many words.

What we really need here is some face time from a Bishop who is remaining sadly silent on liberal Democrat Patrick Murphy; a politician   who calls himself a Catholic while declaring “I Am Pro Choice” all over the Sunday political talk venues.  Murphy entered Congress just two years ago with a personal income of his own (not his rich daddy’s) of $205,682. Today, Murphy has admitted to a staggering hike in income and net worth of $3,185,011. (1)  This huge spike represents a “1,449% increase while in comparison, the American citizen’s median yearly income features a net worth DECLINE of 0.94%!”   Murphy now ranks as the “102 wealthiest representative in 2012.”    You can find this information at this same source in which Murphy boldly claims his religion to be “CATHOLIC.”

Murphy ads are running ad nauseam in the Treasure Coast of Florida.  Many of these slick productions are gratis area Realtors.  Maybe the fact that the hypocrite sits on the very powerful US House Finance committee, which puts him in direct contact with Realtors, lawyers and wealthy PACs has something to do with Murphy’s huge ad buys.  You think?

So here we have a candidate openly seeking to trade on a typically Irish Catholic name, openly listing his religion as Catholic, openly saying “I am Bi-partisan, independent” while statistics clearly reveal him to have voted with Obama-Pelosi over 82% of the time, (2).  And we have this same hypocrite telling all of us, “I AM PRO CHOICE.” 

In November, voters must remember that Silence is Consent!

Is “cooperation in evil” a sin if it grows out of voting for a Democrat?

by Kevin “Coach” Collins

A recent visit to a Catholic church in another state brought a reminder that somewhere around 40% of Catholics who regularly attend mass are devoted Democrat voters. The car in the next space had a bumper sticker supporting a self-described Catholic Democrat well known for supporting partial birth abortions.

The overt act of placing a sign on one’s car begs a few questions. Is it reasonable that in this era of effective mass communication a potential voter could fail to know what a politician’s positions are? Could a Catholic voter be engaged enough to want to place a sign on his/her vehicle yet have no understanding that Democrats represent a political philosophy that is diametrically opposed to the teachings of the Catholic Church? Finally what does Roman Catholic Church Canon Law say about such conduct?

A review of Canon Law reveals that it describes “formal cooperation” as “intending the evil action that another is doing.” Is it not reasonable to declare that those Catholics who vote for a candidate specifically because he/she will promote abortion have engaged in “formal cooperation” in evil?

The commentary attached to this explanation goes on to say, “This is when you deliberately, consciously, and willingly intend the evil to happen. Civil law calls it being an accessory to a crime. … There is knowledge of the evil beforehand or while it is happening, and consent to it being done. This is always sinful and immoral.”

The commentary cites these “on point” examples of such conduct: Hiring someone to commit murder and agreeing that a child should be aborted.

Canon Law 1868 reminds us that while sin is a personal act, we have a responsibility for the sins of others that have been facilitated by us. This point is established with these examples of enabling conduct leading to sin by others: participating directly and voluntarily in them as in working in or contributing to an abortion supporter’s campaign; ordering, advising, praising, or approving such a candidate; by denying the truth about an abortion supporter’s position in order to trick someone into supporting an abortion supporter who ordinarily would not do so.

In this world you may have either knowledge or repose; but you may not have both. Those who still believe it is possible to be both a good Catholic and good Democrat ought to consider this.

Here’s why America is upside down and has left us

by Kevin “Coach” Collins

Some of these points are more painful than others, but they’re all spot on.

Today American citizens are more afraid of the American government than illegal aliens are.

The DoJ doesn’t see criminality in threatening voters with truncheons, but is prosecuting an American citizen for making a video Obama doesn’t like.

The government now decides what will go on top of wedding cakes.

Abortionists are cheered and those who protest abortions are prosecuted.

Year after year “Global warming” conferences are canceled because of cold weather, but those who say it is a fake are mocked.

The guys that call us bigots for demanding photo ID to vote require photo ID to visit their offices.

The guy who is in charge of keeping illegal aliens out of America says they “have earned the right to citizenship.”

“Black Pride or Gay Pride” organizations catering to minorities are celebrated but “White Pride” or “Straight Pride” organizations are immediately labeled racist, bigoted and/or homophobic.

In-state tuition is automatically given to people from a “state” in Mexico but not a neighboring American state.

Cars that don’t work and no one wants are subsidized by the government but American auto manufacturers are collapsed with fake crises.

Criminals and psychos regularly kill people with guns in “Gun free zones”, because no law abiding armed citizens are carrying guns that could have been used to stop them.

We have to look to European media and even Pravda to get honest coverage of things happening in America because our own media won’t provide it. This goes double for things that embarrass the government.

We have record numbers of obese people but are constantly barraged by Public Service Announcements (we pay for of course) about one in seven people going to bed hungry (so pay more in taxes).

Those (especially Blacks) who speak out against the government are audited but the IRS keeps hands off Leftist groups.

The government regularly “pivots” to focus on creating jobs but outsources the construction of Obamacare and more and more Americans fall out of the workforce each month.

We see an idiot who blocked traffic for political reasons gets 40 times more coverage than the murder of 4 Americans in Benghazi.

Democrats are unpatriotic, but are they immoral as well?

by Kevin “Coach” Collins

Question: It’s clearly unpatriotic to be a Democrat but is it immoral?

Democrats hate the military and are always working to undermine America’s defense so we have no protection from their international friends. When they are in power Democrats always act in ways that favor America’s enemies and insult our friends.  Hearing Democrats say they are embarrassed to be American is common place from newsrooms to the highest offices of our government.

Democrats have urged surrender in every conflict we have been in since Viet Nam. Immediately after a terror attack, Democrats jump to act as apologists for those who would see us dead. It is hard to find a Democrat under 60 who is patriotic; and it’s a good bet that those who ran off to Canada in the 1960s and 70s are today’s most reliable Democrats.

Clearly Democrats are not patriotic, but there is good evidence that they are immoral as well.

They are the Party that has gleefully declared itself enemies of God. They have booed God’s name. They cheered Barack Obama during his phony government shutdown when he threatened to arrest Catholic priests who tried to minister on federal property.

Blood thirsty Democrats see even partial birth abortion as a secular sacrament and worship Gay “marriage.” Their strangle hold on healthcare has endangered the lives of millions of Americans. Poverty levels under Democrats are always climbing because of their greed and avarice.

Their deficit spending immorally burdens future generations far into the future. They want to go easy on criminals while stripping us of our right to own guns for protection.          

Government run schools in Democrat controlled cities are among the worst in the country. They constantly promote class warfare pitting rich versus poor and vice versa.

They are under-represented in our military and over represented in our jails.

Surveys show they are the least charitable among us preferring to spend the money they tax out of other people rather than their own.

By any standard, Democrats are clearly unpatriotic and immoral by their very nature.

Abortion: America’s only thriving industry thanks to the Obama Regime

by Suzanne Eovaldi,  staff writer

Barack Obama’s administration is “the most rabid pro-abortion administration in US History,” according to the recent Christian Action News.  As the 41st anniversary of Roe V. Wade approaches on January 22, the question is asked by the editors: “In a nation that regularly polls as majority pro-life, how on God’s green earth have we not been able to end the killings:” (1)
  
Abortion is now the leading cause of death in the US, with  1,310,000 pre-born innocent human beings ripped apart in their mothers’ wombs either by hard cold scissors rammed into the back of their skulls or by burning saline baths or by some other horrific method of death.  This article, also, points out that “98% of abortions are for CONVENIENCE!”  Pope John Paul II best summed up why abortion is so wrong when he said, “It is difficult to imagine a more unjust situation, and it is very difficult to speak of obsession in a matter such as this, where we are dealing with a fundamental imperative of every good conscience–the DEFENSE OF THE RIGHT TO LIFE OF AN INNOCENT AND DEFENSELESS HUMAN BEING.” (2)
   
But to liberal judges, liberal feminists, our mainstream media and liberals in general who rigidly cling to Justice Harry Blackmun’s penumbra of privacy that millions of adults worldwide use as their legal OK to terminate pregnancies, perhaps a viewing of this shocking video that is banned on youtube and Facebook will change some cruel hearts and minds.  Go to (3), “This is Abortion” to see what really happens when a baby is killed in what once was the safest place on earth to be, a mother’s womb.  The yellow and black warning label warns viewers of graphic, disturbing images. But perhaps we NEED to get disturbed.  By the way, some Black pastors warn parishioners that abortion kills blacks over and above the national statistics. But their message, like this video, is stifled by a media that refuse to tell Americans what really happens when a baby is killed.  Demographic suicide is a term this newspaper article uses to denounce countries like South Korea which “has the highest abortion rate in the world–1.5 million abortions per year for a population of 49 million–about seven times higher than the rate in the US.” (4)
   
We need to pause to contemplate how our media gods could fail to realize the enormity of what they are doing by failing to show what really happens in an abortion.  The editorial that appeared in one of South Florida’s very liberal newspapers on Christmas Eve may give readers some perspective into the mindset of one American editorialist.  PALM BEACH POST editorial writer Andrew Marra (amarra@pbpost.com) castigates Governor Rick Scott’s administration for refusing to allow the display of a falling angel by the Satanic Temple of New York.  “Where exactly is the problem,” Marra asks of Governor Scott? (5) 

The satanic themed decoration was rejected because it was “grossly offensive” and would have been placed near Christianity’s Nativity Scene in the Florida state capitol.  Marra equates the display of the satanic fallen angel depiction with the display of Christ’s birth because the right of free speech requires a “content-neutral” application.  Here we have a content neutral approach to humanity’s goodness vs. evil and as our culture slides deeper and deeper into its culture of death, the media gods are winning.  These culture neutral gods have control of the vast US, bi-coastal media-entertainment complex and we are fed their sickness day after day, year after year.  More babies who are womb murdered are replaced on screen with over-the-top pictures of dogs and cats being “loved” by tv actors who show care for animals, but who ignore human suffering.
   
The media’s religions of Pantheism and Zoolatry (the worship of animals) can not see God in a baby in its mother’s womb, but can feature love of animals. When the left grabbed control of our courts and media institutions, the lives of millions of American babies not even yet conceived, were sentenced to horrible deaths we never are allowed to see.  Instead, we see humans kissing dogs, cats, pushing them in baby carriages in images that just do not seem right.
