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.

Frying the 100th egg of Islam


by Jerry Todd,  staff writer

I am posting a 1950 quote attributed to the late Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen, one of America’s greatest teachers/preachers. Sheen was not a bigot. He was,  rather,  truly a  saintly man of God who was also a scholar relating to Islam. He did however see that the depraved death cult in Islam enjoys support from another death cult – the deniers of the sanctity of human life at all stages – the “progressive.”

“At the present time, the hatred of the Islamic countries toward the West has become hatred against Christianity itself. Statesmen are now taking it into account that there is a grave danger that the temporal power of Islam may return on a broad scale, and with it, the menace that it may shake off a West which has ceased to be Christian, and affirm itself as a great anti-Christian world power.

Muslim writers say, “When the locust swarms darken vast countries, they bear on their wings these Arabic words, “We are God’s host, each of us has 99 eggs, and if we had 100, we should lay waste to the world and all that is in it.”

Sadly, the evidence is now overwhelming – the United States of America is Islam’s “100th egg!” Are we not exporting jihadist’s with impunity, weapons, and money? Have we not thrown the whole Middle East into chaos? Are we not enriching our enemies with insane energy and fiscal policies? Hasn’t our education system been taken over at a level of governance and propaganda that cannot succeed? Haven’t we worked tirelessly to destroy our free enterprise system? Haven’t we ignored the principles of personal responsibility and e pluribus unum that made our nation and its health care system the greatest the world has ever seen? Haven’t we disarmed our military – even on its own bases where a single insane terrorist can wreak havoc on its personnel? Are we not ignoring the slaughter of Christians by Muslim terrorist like the 160 agriculture college students gunned down in their dorms in Nigeria?

Are we the once freest nation in the world now the100th Egg to “lay waste to the world and all that is in it?”  Praise God, we will overcome –

Oh thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved homes and the war’s desolation!

Blest with victory and peace; may the heav’n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a Nation.

Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: In God is our trust.

And the Star-Spangled Banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
