Odds and Ends #1


The Masked Angel:
During this past week, several events happened that I either didn't have enough to comment on for a full blog, or the event itself said all that needed to be said. So for this first ever Odds and Ends post, I've put together five announcements and stories in one post.

First things first: One will notice I am now starting to put AMDG at the start of every post. This is not to say that I am going full Jesuit because I still have issues with the order (despite the fact Pope Francis is a Jesuit) but that doesn't mean there's something wrong with their spirituality. We should do all we can for the greater glory so until the Vatican condemns Loyola's writings, I'm sticking with it. Besides the phrase also appears in Montfort's writings and even the FSSP uses it on their own website. 

Second: It’s graduation time in America and one particular valedictorian speech has been getting national attention for standing up to the atheist bulling Christians into silence. When told he was going to give the valedictorian speech, Liberty High School senior Roy Costner lead the crowd in the Lord’s Prayer. At first, the insane group called the Freedom From Religion Foundation sued his school district for promoting what it called “unconstitutional prayer practice.”
“The valedictorian who so insensitively inflicted Christian prayer on a captive audience at a secular graduation ceremony, is a product of a school district which itself set an unconstitutional example by hosting school board prayer,” FFRF co-president Annie Laurie Gaylor said in a prepared statement.

Excuse you, Gaylor? That’s not the impression I get when I watch the video of his speech:


Third: Speaking of bat-scat insane atheists, another anti-religion group in Florida is planning to put up their own monument to supposedly counter Ten Commandment monuments going up all over. Reports vary as to what will be put on it, but from the reports I have read, it looks like it might include a quote from Thomas Jefferson and a line from the Treaty of Tripoli.

Yeah…lawsuits and free speech work both ways, atheists. Go forward with this idea, and I will call on people to put up on your monuments notes that counter everything you say. I know which quote you will use concerning the Treaty of Tripoli, and I will point out why your reasoning is flawed.
Then again, given how so many people know what the First Amendment reads verses how few even know what Treaty of Tripoli Day is, I might not have to do that. ;) 

And finally, from the informed pack at Church Militant.TV, we have this story from my home city:
