Year of Inter-Faith & Snopes’ Errors



Faith or Inter-Faith?

TIA,

Here we have an example of the policy of Vatican II ecumenism, being celebrated and promoted by the Vatican in the Year of Faith ceremonies. With many more years like this, there will be nothing left of the true Catholic Faith.

Catholic, Muslim Leaders Celebrate US Interfaith Dialogue

CWN – October 11, 2012

The leaders of the three regional official Catholic-Muslim dialogues in the United States gathered in Chicago from October 3-5 to celebrate past accomplishments and looked forward to future discussions.

In a keynote address, Father Tom Michel, SJ, said that dialogue is enhanced when participants are faithful to their own traditions.

“Muslims must glory in the prophethood of Muhammad and the Qur’anic message that he brought, just as Christians must glory in the cross of Jesus Christ and our faith in what God has accomplished in him for all humankind,” he said.

Conclusion or Position?

TIA,

I enjoy your wonderful website, Tradition in Action, and wanted to share my thoughts. Because many people wrongly think that sede-vacantists enjoy their opinion, I offer this: The sede-vacantist situation is much more of a Conclusion than a Position.

If a family received documentation that their 'thought to be' heroic ancestor from World War One was actually a deserter and shot by a firing squad, they would be terribly saddened by that conclusion. In my opinion, this is the same response of the priests and brothers and sisters of the CMRI (and other groups) towards their sede-vacantist Conclusion. No one is happy about it. This is a tragic time for our Roman Catholic Faith but Our Lord and Our Lady will see us through it.

State Favoring Organ Donation

Dear TIA,

Salve Maria!

Now, I just got my California driver’s license renewal order in the mail. Since I must go in person to renew my license this year, I must fill out an updated form.

I was interested to see that on this form I am asked if I would like to be an “organ donor.” There is a place to mark YES but no place to mark NO. With no place to mark the wish that NO organs are donated, someone along the line could easily mark the “Yes” box on their own. I would have already signed the document, after all, leaving it blank.

A few comments: First, those with durable power of attorney have no rights over the Organ Registry, should one sign.

Second, in the state of California, if the “Yes” box is not checked, it defaults to Organ Donor.

Third, it is not enough to take your name off your license the next time you renew. You must contact the Gift of Life Organization in your State and send in a certified letter to have your name removed. Give your next of kin a copy of the letter so that when the Organ folks show up and tell your family you are on their list, they can present the letter that you had it removed. Check with the State you live in, but this is what I have found out.

This is all very chilling.

I am so grateful for your efforts and others’ to warn us of the horrors of organ donation. I intend to black through the whole line, indicating that I do not want to be dissected while still alive. Please re-post your article from time to time, for those who do not yet understand what organ donation is really all about.

Please keep up the good fight!

     Thank you,

     C.C.

Links to the book are also available at www.frankrega.com. Some of the articles are brand new, others have been published in Catholic magazines. Thank you!

Snopes No Longer a Must Read

TIA,

I would like you to know and warn your readers about these allegations against Snopes, which many people take as a very accurate source. I am not sure this accusation is true, but it is good to be aware of the suspicions raised by this e-mail. I received it from a friend.

FYI - Interesting FACTS on Snopes

Check this out. I often do try to check out things with Snope so I don't pass on untrue things. This certainly scares you with George Soros heavily financing it. As they inspect `truth', not hard to imagine which things they might weight more heavily.

I guess like so much on the Internet even the Urban Legends site is flawed.

Many of the emails that I have sent or forwarded that had any anti-Obama in it were negated by Snopes. I thought that was odd. Check this out. ...

Snopes is heavily financed by George Soros; a big time supporter of Obama!

In our Search for the truth department, we find what I have suspected on many occasions.

I went to Snopes to check something about the dockets of the Supreme Court Justice, Elena Kagan who Obama appointed and Snopes said the email was false and there were no such dockets.

So, I googled the Supreme Court, typed in Obama-Kagan, and guess what? Yep, you got it; Snopes lied! Everyone of those dockets is there. So, here is what I wrote to Snopes:

Referencing the article about Elena Kagan and Barack Obama dockets:

The information you have posted stating that there were no such cases as claimed and the examples you gave are blatantly false. I went directly to the Supreme Courts website, typed in Obama Kagan and immediately came up with all of the dockets that the article made reference to.

I have long suspected that you really slant things but this was really shocking.Thank you, I hope you will be much more truthful in the future, but I doubt it.

That being said, I’ll bet you didn't know this: Kagan was representing Obama in all the petitions to prove his citizenship. Now she may help rule on them.

Folks, this is really ugly. Chicago politics; and the beat goes on and on and on. Once again the U.S. Senate sold us out! Now we know why Obama nominated Elena Kagan for the Supreme Court.

Pull up the Supreme Courts website, go to the docket and search for Obama. She was the Solicitor General for all the suits against him filed with the Supreme Court to show proof of natural born citizenship. He owed her big time. All of the requests were denied of course. They were never heard. It just keeps getting deeper and deeper, doesn't it?

The American people mean nothing any longer. It's all about payback time for those who compromised themselves to elect someone who really has no true right to even be there.

Here are some websites of the Supreme Court Docket: You can look up some of these hearings and guess what? Elena Kagan is the attorney representing Obama!

Check out these examples here, here & here.

If you are not interested in justice or in truth, simply delete. However, if you hold sacred the freedoms granted to you by the U.S. Constitution; by all means, PASS it ON!

There truly is tyranny afoot.
