Ann Arbor Catholic priest tells parishioners to pack heat

Posted by doctore0 on April 21, 2015

:)

An Ann Arbor Catholic priest has urged his parishioners to arm themselves and attend classes at Christ the King parish to earn a concealed pistol license (CPL).

In a letter sent to Christ the King parishioners recently, the Rev. Edward Fride explained why he believed it was necessary to get concealed pistol licenses because of recent crime in the area. During a Palm Sunday mass last month, Fride announced that the parish would be holding the CPL class.

When some parishioners questioned the decision, Fride sent out a pro-gun letter titled “We’re not in Mayberry Anymore, Toto” – a reference to the 1960s-era Andy Griffith Show and its portrayal of a fictional North Carolina town, as well as Dorothy’s dog from the Wizard of Oz.

“It is very common for Christians to simply assume that they live in Mayberry, trusting that because they know the Lord Jesus, everything will always be fine and nothing bad can happen to them and their families,” Fride wrote.

“How to balance faith, reality, prudence, and trust is one of those critical questions that we struggle with all our lives. Pretending we are in Mayberry, while we are clearly not, can have very negative consequences for ourselves and those we love, especially those we have a responsibility to protect. If we are not in Mayberry, is there a real threat?”

Atheist mom threatened over complaints about ‘Bible Man’ visits to Tennessee public school

Posted by doctore0 on April 16, 2015


A Tennessee mom said she and her child have been threatened after they complained about “Bible Man” visits to her son’s school.

The Christian-themed superhero character played by Horace Turner has been visiting Grundy County schools for nearly 40 years, but the atheist mom contacted a national secular group over her concerns, reported WRCB-TV.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation sent a letter on behalf of the woman, who asked to remain anonymous in news reports, questioning the constitutionality of the in-school visits.

While some Christian evangelizers come as wolves dressed in sheep’s clothing, this wolf comes dressed as a wolf,” the group said in a letter. “’Bible Man’s’ overtly religious and proselytizing messages are explicit.”

Turner leads students in Bible readings, sets up “baby Jesus” displays at school, preaches in sermons that “Jesus died on the cross for our sins,” and distributes religious literature, the group said.

He has also spoken at schools in Alabama, but Tennessee state officials recently promised to end Turner’s visits to elementary schools.

Vaccination-exempt church revealed as Christian “Scientists”

Posted by doctore0 on April 15, 2015

So it is ok to kill kids for Jesus…

It is the question that Scott Morrison has repeatedly refused to answer.

Which is the religious organisation that qualifies children for an exemption from vaccination?

The Social Services Minister has said there was only one registered organisation that could be exempted for religious grounds, but would not say who.

“I’m not about to advertise it for fear of it having a lot of new followers on a fairly unfair basis,” he said at the weekend, after announcing other loopholes would be tightened to stop parents claiming childcare and family benefits if they refused to vaccinate their children.

An online guide produced by Mr Morrison’s own department clearly states that the exempt organisation is Church of Christ, Scientist – more generally known as the Christian Scientists.

This information is also available on the government’s ComLaw website, where an explanatory statement about exemption from immunisation requirements states that “children of practising members of the Church of Christ, Scientist are exempt”.

It explains that this “clearly advances” freedom of religion for Christian Scientists as “their religious beliefs mean they may be unwilling to access western medicine”.
