This week: Women and abortion… Where do the women presidential candidates stand? Women share their abortion experiences. Women who survived being aborted. An amazing miracle in Buenes Aires. Lutheran Satire parodies BuzzFeed’s dumb anti-Christian video. Is capitalism moral?
Two women presidential candidates! Where do they stand on abortion? First, Hillary Clinton:
Position: strong support for abortion up to the moment of birth (a NARAL pro-abortion rating of 100%, a NRLC pro-life rating of 0).
Next up, Carly Fiorina:
Position: pro-life (but with exceptions, unfortunately), wants Roe v. Wade overturned, Planned Parenthood defunded, and more.
Some non-candidates talk about their personal abortion experiences:
Other women are survivors of failed abortions. That is, they were supposed to be terminated but lived anyway. 2 weeks ago they testified before congress:
We are in the presence of a Eucharistic miracle at every Mass. Before us ordinary bread and wine are transformed in substance to the actual body, blood, soul and divinity of our Lord. Nothing symbolic, the substance itself is changed. Very few miracles (I am thinking along the lines of the resurrection) top that!
Sometimes, not only does the Eucharistic substance change, but the appearance (accidents) do as well. One such visible Eucharistic miracle happened in recent times in Buenos Aires. This is a powerful story for Catholics and non-Catholics alike:
Recently, BuzzFeed produced a video where poorly catechized people, claiming to be Christians, explained “I’m a Christian BUT….” The words that followed the BUT were just the opposite of the faith. A more honest tag might have been “I am not Christian because I believe….”
Anyway, the folks at Lutheran Satire have produced this parody:
With the Holy Father’s visit, much is discussed about many topics including capitalism. Some (not Pope Francis, BTW) hold that capitalism is immoral. Is it?
Some random thoughts or bits of information are worthy of sharing but don’t warrant their own full post. This idea was begun by Jennifer Fulwiler and is now continued by Kelly Mantoan. So, some Fridays I too participate when I have accumulated 7 worthy items. Thank you Kelly for hosting this project!
