Pope Francis: Uniter or Divider? - Aleteia

Pope Francis: Uniter or Divider? - Aleteia:
The three things you need to remember when asking this question:
1. The pope is a “dream catcher”; we project our dreams of unity or division on him.
2. The Pope is divisive and uniting because he is above all a pastor.
3. Pope Francis is that guy who challenges our assumptions and stretches our understanding.

I for one am really frustrated with #2.  Oh, I understand the need to go running after the lost sheep.  But in the mean time, on both the left and right sides of the pen, there's a hungry wolf who has cut a hole in the fence and is stealing sheep while the shepherd is away.

The Gay Bullyboys Want You Jailed - Crisis Magazine

The Gay Bullyboys Want You Jailed - Crisis Magazine:

Alarmist?  yes.  Accurate?  Yes.

There is a dark side to many liberal organizations.  And as the article points out, conservative organizations are not immune to seeking state support.

But I've got a question- How does an "Institute" in the United States, running on a budget of a mere $54,494/year, lobby governments in Moldova, Russia, and Poland and actually accomplish their goals enough to get on a hate crimes report? Or Family Watch International, who has apparently been lobbying the UN on a budget of $26,569/year (maybe Sharon Slater is cleaning their toilets?).
Scott Lively is the one who has been receiving the actual death threats from the Human Rights Campaign, alledgedly for singlhandly being responsible for anti-gay legislation in Uganda, Eastern Europe, Russia, and the United Kingdom. All on a budget of less than $100,000/year (I challenge you to even take a vacation in those four areas in a year on such a budget).

Apparently undercutting the gay bullyboys is worse than cutting the heads off of reporters....

Downright Prophetic

Paul Harvey, from 1965. He did the same speech over the years, updating it regularly. Not sure quite what year this is, but because I've run into people who no longer believe in the devil today:

Scientism Cannot Explain Away the Grandeur of God - Crisis Magazine

Scientism Cannot Explain Away the Grandeur of God - Crisis Magazine:

The real problem is that Scientism isn't really a form of atheism.  It just replaces the authority of God with the authority of Science (tm) of a form that most people don't understand is really just materialism.
