Consequences On Election Day

There has been a lot of articles, including this one, about how the Democrats are going to be politically wiped out this election day in the South.  That is a good thing because the Democrat Party no longer represents Southern values.  For years many Southern Democrats were pro-life and conservative on most issues.  I feel we gave them a pass because the national Democrat Party has been a staunch supporter of abortion and gay marriage.  They have fought to tear down our families, our heritage, and to strip the states of the few rights they had remaining. 

I have often said that if Bush had a D at the end of his name they would have loved him because he sure acted like one of them, except on moral issues.  I feel we all have a responsiblity to vote for candidates who will stand for our heritage and fight for the authority our states have lost.  There are many good candidate, for once, this election season.  I hope that you will support and back those in your area.

Refugees, migrants should accept host nation’s laws, Pope says

Their is no reason for immigrants not to respect and adopt the host countries culture, or commit crimes against the host country citizens.  As well, the host country or employers should not abuse the immigrants. Slavery is at an all time high world wide especially in Africa and Asia. To help the common man, woman and families, the Church and free countries should work together to put international pressure on the corrupt governments,  that do not allow their citizens dignity, freedom or free enterprise to provide for themselves and families. 

“In an age of globalization, all people should be recognized as members of “one human family,” Pope Benedict XVI said in his message for the World Day for Migrants and Refugees.

The Pope’s message urged nations to respect the rights of refugees and migrants, especially those who are fleeing from war or persecution. “At the same time,” he said, “states have the right to regulate migration flows and to defend their own borders.” The Pontiff went on to say that immigrants have “the duty to integrate into the host country, respecting its laws and its national identity.”

The World Day for Migrants and Refugees will be observed on January 16, 2011. The Pope’s message for the occasion was released by the Vatican on October 26.

The Pope’s message sounded several familiar themes, urging governments to recognize the right of migrants to be treated with dignity and respect, and preserved from violence and exploitation. Christian faith, he reminded his readers, requires us to “recognize each other as brothers and sisters in Christ.” Yet his statement was more explicit than other recent Vatican pronouncements in recognizing the right of nations to regulate immigration and the need for immigrants to accept the laws and cultural norms of their host nation.”

Thank you Pope Benedict XVI.

Faith and Politics, Part of a Solution

“With the American midterm elections looming close, issues such as Church-State relations and the religious beliefs of candidates are surfacing again.

Pundits have speculated about the way religious affiliations will affect voters, especially with controversies such as health care reform and changes to immigration laws still fresh.

Earlier this month the seven Catholic bishops published a statement offering guidelines to help people evaluate which candidates it would be suitable to vote for. Catholics, they said, should judge political matters through the lens of faith and not be guided by self interest or party loyalty alone.

The bishops mentioned a number of issues, ranging from life matters to war and peace and education. It’s rare, they admitted, to find a candidate who agrees with the Church on every matter, but not all have the same weight.

Following the recommendation of the 2008 document, “Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship,” issued by the U.S. bishops the New York prelates stated: “The inalienable right to life of every innocent human person outweighs other concerns where Catholics may use prudential judgment, such as how best to meet the needs of the poor or to increase access to health care for all.”

“Religion has a legitimate role in the public square, the Pontiff stated, and should not be marginalized.”

The Season Of Traditions

The season of traditions is upon us.  Before we know it families will be gathering all over America to warmly celebrate the holidays steeped in tradition.  Dressing up, the meals, the decorations, the laughter and games, the traditional readings from stories of old;  no home, rich or poor, lets the season pass without celebrating with their own heritage.  That is what traditions are, ways to pass on our heritage from one generation to another; teaching them from birth. 

This is why it was important to us, as parents, that our family traditions teach our children about our Catholic faith and Southern heritage.  Living in the North makes our job of keeping our heritage alive in our children very difficult.  We must constantly counter the propaganda the schools are teaching them. 

One thing that makes this easier for us is the purposeful traditions we have begun for our family and hopefully many generations to come.  Some things that the children absolutely love and look forward to every year is the reading of “When Washington Crossed the Delaware” on Christmas Eve.  We then open all the family gifts before we go to bed.  Christmas morning is reserved for the Nativity story and Santa’s gifts that all come in special Santa paper and gold lettering.  Christmas dinner is always Chinese; shrimp fried rice, chicken fried rice, egg rolls, egg drop soup, and pepper steak.  Yum!

Two years ago we tried something new with gift giving; everything that comes from Mom and Dad is books, games, activities, and puzzles that are all geared to teach our Catholic faith, our Southern heritage, and true American history of our founding fathers and their sacrifices.  Each gift was carefully chosen to instill our values and beliefs in our children.  Each child was given beautifully illustrated and brilliantly written books with personal messages from Mom and Dad written inside the cover.  These were the gifts opened on Christmas Eve.  Santa, of course, brought some toys and stuffed the stockings on Christmas morning, but it was gifts of heritage that had them talking.

They talked for months about the things they read and learned from their books and such.  They loved it so much they begged us to do it again last year.  Needless to say it was such a huge hit it will be a permanent family tradition.  What ever your traditions this holiday season it is the time spent with family and friends that makes them so memorable.  Those memories and the stories that come from them are  what keep them going generation after generation.  This holiday season what framework are you passing on to your children?

Welcome To Our New Contributor, InHisName

Argentine prelate accuses the UN of secularist neo-colonialism

By  InHisName

It is the very same parallels we face in Southern culture. The liberals/socialist/ideologies from the North are trying to twist and subvert our culture.

“Archbishop Hector Aguer of La Plata, Argentina has charged that the UN and its affiliates are engaged in a campaign to undermine the traditional bases of Latin American culture.

“Where do these ideas come from? Have we come up with them on our own” the archbishop asked rhetorically during a television address. “We must answer: No.” The drive to change public morality, promoting acceptance of abortion and homosexuality, is driven by “the United Nations and various satellite organizations,” he charged.

The archbishop said that the UN, with support from major financial powers, is seeking to “shift paradigms of behavior and alter the definition of what real human rights are.” Thus, Archbishop Aguer said, “in the name of human rights the UN—which should be entrusted with their care—instead becomes a transgressor of natural law.”
