News and Such

***The Legionaries of Christ announced that Pope Benedict XVI has asked for an Apostolic Visitation of the order. There is more on the visitation here.

***Archbishop Wuerl intends to deny Communion to Kathleen Sebelius while she is in D.C., in order to uphold the request of her Bishop in Kansas (Archbishop Naumann), who has announced that she cannot come forward to Communion due to her public support for abortion. This is an interesting development and I wonder how it will play out with all the other pro-abortion Catholic politicians in D.C.

***When addressing Planned Parenthood, Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, stated the following:
I want to assure you that reproductive rights and the umbrella issue of women's rights and empowerment will be a key to the foreign policy of this Administration....I believe that women's rights and empowerment is an indispensible ingredient of smart power and therefore is integrated into our renewed emphasis on diplomacy and development… and I was very proud when President Obama repealed the Mexico City policy....
While accepting the highest honor that PP gives out (the Margaret Sanger Award) she also said:
I have to tell you that it was a great privilege when I was told that I would receive this award. I admire Margaret Sanger enormously, her courage, her tenacity, her vision.
Margaret Sanger, the founder of PP, was a racist who advocating selective eugenics to get rid of the undesirables in our society. She also advocated adultery (even in her own marriage), called the poor "human weeds", and wanted forced sterilizations.

This is the woman that Clinton admires???

***Speak some truth Papa:

Considering the other issue relating to her later Mexico City visit, this should be no wonder: http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/new.php?n=15511

I did find this interest column though to cheer me up for the apparent stupidity of the world around. Give it a read: http://www.nationalreview.com/kudlow/kudlow200504041030.asp

Thank God we have Bishops willing to ignore political ramifications and make strong defenses of the faith.
