Rules for Thee

It's becoming more and more obvious that leftists are working from a rulebook. While Karl Marx could be considered their father, it's modern community organizer Saul Alinsky who gave them a set of rules to follow. In his 1971 book, Rules for Radicals — which he dedicated to Lucifer — he outlined 13 rules for activists to follow: Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have  Never go outside the expertise of your people  Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules Ridicule is man's most potent weapon A good tactic is one your people enjoy A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag Keep the pressure on; never let up The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself The major premise...

Whitewashing Hunter Biden

Hunter Biden: "I am absolutely certain, 100% certain, that at the end of the investigation, that I will be cleared of any wrongdoing."   Hunter Biden broke his silence on CBS's Sunday Morning — an interview many are viewing as a whitewash. Hunter Biden laid low during the presidential election, after the New York Post bombshell last October revealed high-level corruption found on his laptop, including child pornography. One whistleblower who'd seen the laptop explained it had "extremely disturbing and obscene" pedophile tapes. While none of this information came up during the CBS interview, the laptop did. Hunter Biden: "There could be a laptop out there that was stolen from me. It could be that I was hacked. It could be that it was Russian intelligence. It could be that it was stolen ...

Congregation’s lawsuit says gas pipeline violates its religious freedom

The Adorers of the Blood of Christ have returned to court arguing that the existence of a 3-year-old natural gas pipeline through their land in Pennsylvania violates their religious freedom rights guaranteed under a 1993 law. A lawsuit filed by the congregation of women religious in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania is the latest step the order has taken to assert its rights under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, known as RFRA. This time, said Sister Janet McCann, a member of the order's St. Louis-based leadership team, the congregation is seeking a jury trial to present evidence about the practice of their faith and their belief Christians are called to protect creation from desecration. "We've never had the chance to have our case heard, to be able t...

Controversial theologian Fr Hans Küng dies at 93

Fr Hans Küng, the prominent and sometimes controversial Swiss Catholic theologian, died peacefully in his sleep in the university town of Tübingen, Germany, where he had lived and lectured since 1960, said a spokesman for his Global Ethic Foundation. He was 93. Fr Küng was one of the most outspoken Catholic theologians and one of the sharpest critics of St John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI. He had worked with and studied with Pope Benedict, then-Fr Joseph Ratzinger, in Tübingen in the 1960s. Along with Fr Ratzinger, Fr Küng was one of the youngest theological experts advising bishops at the Second Vatican Council in 1962-65, but not long after the council he stirred controversy with his views on papal infallibility. Because of this he had his missio canonica, the licence needed to teach ...

Controversial Swiss theologian Hans Küng dies at age 93

The influential and controversial Swiss theologian Hans Küng died Tuesday at the age of 93. The German Catholic Church’s official website said that Küng died on the afternoon of April 6 at his home in Tübingen, southwest Germany. Küng served as a theological adviser at the Second Vatican Council but repeatedly clashed with Rome in the years that followed. The tensions culminated in a 1979 declaration by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) that Küng had “departed from the integral truth of Catholic faith, and therefore he can no longer be considered a Catholic theologian nor function as such in a teaching role.” The CDF cited his opinions on the doctrine of infallibility, expressed in his 1971 book “Infallible? An Inquiry,” as one of the reasons for the move. From the 1990s...
