Hybrid Animals, American Debt &
Experiments with Hybrid Animals
I read with fascination Lyle Arnold's article "Hell inside England" about the decision to permit human animal hybrid experimentation. I do not remember seeing or reading any reports when this happened in 2007, but it came to my attention several weeks ago when the UK Daily Mail reported on the progress of this revolting crime against nature in this link.
150 of these poor hybrids now exist. The mainstream media have not given this story the attention it should have. I would think tampering with the very essence of life and the genetic code might warrant more public discussion and debate than this had.
I am so glad to have found your site. Thank you for your timely reporting on topics deemed unimportant by our pathetic excuse for a free press. I will certainly be visiting your site often.
Dear Dr. Horvat
I have enjoyed remembering the fallen martyr, Gabriel Garcia Moreno, on this anniversary of his death [August 6], by re-reading your enthralling article about his Last Day.
I would like to ask if you or anyone knows what the object is he holds in his left hand, as shown in the oval photo.
Thank you very much for bringing to our attention this great man's resistance to the enemies of the Catholic Church. He is a Catholic to be admired and emulated.
Gabriel Garcia Moreno, pray for us!
This is the best analogy of our debt I have yet seen. Pass this on to your Congressmen.
If the US Government was a family, they would be making $58,000 a year, they spend $75,000 a year, and are $327,000 in credit card debt.
They are currently proposing BIG spending cuts to reduce their spending to $72,000 a year.
These are the actual proportions of the federal budget & debt, reduced to a level that we can understand.

I had a look at your hate mail and was quite saddened by the viciousness and sarcasm that was written. Obviously these people have either lost their faith or don't have the Faith, how very sad these people seem to be.
I reckon they need prayers so they can come to the realization that there is a God and that He wants them to love Him.
Yours in Jesus & Mary.
Ban or Not Ban
A Mr. J.F. made the following comment on your article on women priests:
In your article "Women Priests, Serious Cracks in the Dam," you incorrectly state that John Paul II banned women’s ordination (paragraph 13). He did not. He said the Church has no authority to ordain women.
I think it is important to note that he was not using his legislative authority, but that of his interpretation of doctrine.
In your response to a Mr. J.F. you stated the following:
I do not see clearly how your affirmation contradicts mine, as you imagine. For me to say “the Church has no authority to ordain women” is tantamount to affirm “it is impossible for the Church to admit women priests,” which is also equivalent to the statement, “it is impossible to have women priests in the Church.” When we say that it is impossible to have something in an institution, we normally affirm that thing is “banned” from it.
Your second remark, which seems intended to reinforce your objection, is also unclear. I do not see why and how the Pope, when speaking as interpreter of doctrine, would become unable to prohibit women priests.
The statement “it is impossible to have women priests” is not the same as to ban or to prohibit them. To ban is to “officially or legally prohibit” (Oxford Dictionary). A ban can be lifted. A ban is a legislative act, a human law.
The Catholic Church does not ban women priests, rather John Paul II has declared that the Faith teaches us that it is a metaphysical impossibility. We do not say that the Church bans the marriage of two males, rather that such a marriage is a non-reality.
Democracy & Customs
I found the photograph of the little girl curtseying before the images of their Royal Highnesses very interesting and edifying. It is reassuring to know that some parents still believe in teaching their children good manners. This little girl accepts quite naturally, that there are people in life, to whom one must show special respect.
She is, in fact, accepting the hierarchical nature of society and in her innocence, rejecting the current "democracy". We have suffered greatly under this "democracy". Society has become coarser, manners and civility have deteriorated, standards of dress leave much to be desired and even more worrisome, there is now an almost complete lack of respect for authority figures within our society.
We seem also to have lost our sense of appropriate and becoming behavior. We notice how readily people embrace today, even when they are meeting for the first time. We notice how familiar people are with Priests and Nuns. We notice completely inappropriate dress in church, at the seaside, in the workplace or at celebrations.
What came naturally to us many years ago, because we learned from example, now has to be taught. It is indeed a splendid thing that children are being taught manners and appropriate behavior in special classes, but rather sad, I feel, that they cannot learn, it seems, from the example of their parents.
Dear Catholic friend,
I am not a charismatic, and I am not attracted to this movement at all.
I personally do not believe in much of it, but I am perplex because, apparently it was approved by three popes…
I would LOVE to have traditional Latin mass, but I am wondering if you are in the Pius X movement?
Thank you for giving us the information about you and your personal wishes. We appreciate the trust it reveals.
Regarding your question about us, we can assure you that we are not members of the Society of St. Pius X.
