Call For Lawyer’s Prosecution Over Killing Fox – Killing Babies Still OK…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f-NrlWdKNc0 Comment: Such outrage over the killing of a fox - hardly the most friendly animal in the world. Whatever, I'm always astounded that the same people who are against cruelty to animals (and I would certainly not condone such cruelty) do not extend their outrage to the murder of innocent human beings in their...

With Apostasy Full-Blown Worldwide, Pope Warns of “Christian Decline”…

Pope Francis has [said that] "rigidity" in living out the Christian faith is creating a "minefield" of hatred and misunderstanding in a world where Christianity is increasingly irrelevant.

Trump Impeachment: A Witchhunt…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RVbPMrxdta8 Comment... We're not getting much about the impeachment on the mainstream news outlets here but the live hearings were broadcast on the BBC Parliament channel.  I watched quite a few and can see no evidence whatsoever that the President has done anything remotely wrong.  If you have evidence to the contrary, let's hear it -...

Some Light Relief: the Beauty of Childish Innocence in an Anti-Child Society…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=10&v=hg3s7ag6xKQ&feature=emb_logo Comment:  The mother of the two year old in the above video, late for work, rushed off, forgetting to give her son a kiss.  He is furious and although he is not yet in command of an extensive vocabulary, he certainly makes himself understood.  The father (heard in the video) posted the clip on Facebook and...

Is Pope Francis Preparing To Resign? (Now, now…Don’t all cheer at once!)

From Rorate Caeli... Marco Tosatti: Does Pope Francis think that his Pontificate is about to come to an end? December 8, 2019 The appointment of [Cardinal] Tagle as Prefect for Propaganda Fide is an important signal for many reasons. But most of all because it gives grounds to suppose that Pope [Francis] believes the end of his...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sXmoZyTQDfY Comment:  At a time when both politicians and royalty could use some good public relations activity, this - decidedly - is not it.   The trouble with  politicians, royalty and the media is that they are out of step with ordinary public opinion.  In one TV discussion show/phone-in, for example, only one member of the panel...
