U.S. Bishops Walk Back Demands for Stricter Gun Laws

by Thomas D. Williams, Breitbart:

The United States Catholic bishops toned down language calling for stricter gun control legislation in the midst of three major shooting incidents in the country.

In a July 30 statement on the Bishops (USCCB) website, Bishop Frank Dewane, Chairman of the Committee on Domestic Justice and Human Development, stated, “Our legislators must make changes to our gun policy to prevent the loss of life,” following the shooting at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in Gilroy, California.

Prayer Before You Prepare

0

by C.H., Survival Blog:

My first memory of SurvivalBlog is reading the Rawlesian precepts, almost a decade years ago. I remember quickly hurrying over to the ‘Quick Start Guide’ to find out where I should begin. It was there that I read the most important piece of advice for any prepper: “Before you begin to prepare, pray.”

Unfortunately, I thought that this meant little more than a salutary ‘tipping of the hat’ toward heaven before starting out on whatever I thought was best. ‘Do your best, pray it’s blessed, and let God do the rest.’ So I asked the Lord for his blessing and guidance, without really expecting any answer. And then I set forth.  I looked for a job in the American Redoubt, began stockpiling guns, ammo, and precious metals. I read any material on prepping I could find. I devoured books and scoured the Internet. I kept a close eye on the news for any hints on what to get ready for.

Pope Francis says we should obey the United Nations

from Fellowship Of The Minds:

On September 10, 2019, while jetting from Madagascar to Rome, Pope Francis gave an in-flight press conference in which he said:

“I would like to repeat the doctrine of the Church, that international organizations, when we understand we give them the ability to judge internationally. We think for example to the international court of AJA, and many times also the United Nations, when they speak. If we are a humanity we should obey. It is true that things do not always seem right for all humanity, they are right for our pockets, but you should obey international institutions, the United Nations was created for this.”

AFTER BEYONCÉ MASS, GRACE EPISCOPAL CHURCH HOLDS CLIMATE CHANGE INTERFAITH ‘WORSHIP SERVICE’ FEATURING GIANT TREE PEOPLE

by Geoffrey Grinder, Now The End Begins:

Grace Episcopal Cathedral in California that recently garnered headlines for holding a Beyoncé-centered service held a worship service featuring individuals portraying giant tree people.

We reported to you back in April on something called a ‘Beyoncé Mass‘ that was held out in California at the Grace Episcopal Cathedral. Simply put, the ‘Beyoncé Mass‘ was about 90 minutes of the music of Beyonce, sprinkled with a random sampling of bible verses, and ‘preaching’ about the various social justice issues of the day. How do you top that? Easy, have a service featuring people in giant tree costumes and ‘preaching’ about Climate Change. No, not kidding.
