Céad Míle Fáilte ~ A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Here we seek a rest in the shade, some cool water and a little kindness. This blog is dedicated to peace, truth, justice and a post- industrial, post-petroleum illumined world in spite of all odds against it. I very much like the line about the ancient knight (see poem below) "His helmet now shall make a hive for bees" It is reminiscent of "beating swords into ploughshares" a sentiment I heartily approve of. Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you return!

On Obama's Pick for VP: Joe Biden

Barack picked a "sort-of-Catholic" to run with him, likely in hopes he will bring some Catholic voters along with him. If Biden was abidin' by what he said on Meet The Press back in 2007, we would have nothing to worry about.

Q: You have changed your position on abortion. When you came to the Senate, you believed that Roe v. Wade was not correctly decided and that you also believed the right of abortion was not secured by the Constitution. Why did you change your mind? A: Well, I was 29 years old when I came to the US Senate, and I have learned a lot. Look, I’m a practicing Catholic, and it is the biggest dilemma for me in terms of comporting my religious and cultural views with my political responsibility.Q: Do you believe that life begins at conception? A: I am prepared to accept my church’s view. I think it’s a tough one. I have to accept that on faith. That’s why the late-term abortion ban, where there’s clearly viability.

But apparently even though he believes life begins at conception, he is willing to allow it to be snuffed out, terminated, whacked, aborted or whatever one wishes to call it. This is legalized murder, along the lines of the death penalty and wars involving innocents, kids and civilians. Meaning well may count for something but you know what they say about the road to hell being paved with good intentions...

Please join me in praying for the world's leaders that they awaken to the higher laws which sooner or later they will bump up against.
