True Pathos

Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was apparently one depressed dude, posting his misery on the internet in the months ahead of his failed attempt to bomb an airliner full of travelers.

He had worries aplenty, with his devout religiosity (which is not being mocked here)in a secular world full of temptations.

However it appears that those terrorists in Yemen took advantage of Umar’s worries about keeping his male urges under control, and talked him into wearing a bomb in his underwear.

Pharmer finds that just plain cruel, and the PUNCH, a Nigerian newspaper appears to be the only one correctly identifying where Umar got toasted. Yep, the worries about controlling those urges are now most likely moot.

Umar is likely seeing his fate as worse than death, and perhaps stands as the best warning to other would-be suicide bombers.

USCCB and CHA: the Language of Surrender on Abortion

The historical troubles of religious officials entering into politics shows plainly here in this Catholic News Service Article.

It appears impossible for the Bishops and Religious to hold themselves to Church teaching when giving opinion on legislation, or in determining which legislation would meet their standards.

The CNS article states the USCCB standard on abortion has been lowered to accept the killing of unborn humans claimed to be conceived as a result of rape or incest. These are exceptions allowable in the Hyde amendment which forbids federal funding for elective abortions.

The New York Times naturally has spun the activities of CHA to be surrendering to abortion in order to obtain the ‘benefits’ from further socialized health care.

While Sr. Carol Keehan claims that CHA has not strayed from its commitment to protect life from “conception” to natural death, this health care professional, knows better. CHA and USCCB have been working to pass health care to the control of a very corrupt, pro rationing and pro abortion government. The insanity of expecting the government to honor an agreement not to fund and coerce killing within health care is readily apparent. The current (too little – too late) protests against Obamacare have a false ring.

Sr. Carol Keehan Still Lost in the Weeds Regarding Abortive "Health" Care

Obama and Abortion have been so extremely attached for so long,  Pharmer expects Stedmans Medical Dictionary to rename the practice “OBORTION”.

This year,  Sr. Carol Keehan, of the Catholic Health Association,  managed the same kind of lost in the weeds public statement as last year when she praised the (later aborted) appointment of Tom Daschle as HHS secretary.   One can understand some administrative need to get along with the government, but these public statements cause her to appear a bit ridiculous to those who watch the political machinations.

Here’s what the Good Sister put out on December 17th, regarding the unfounded belief that Bob Casey ever shared any serious interests with prolifers, and that the Senate would be concerned with our respect for human life. 

More recently there is a too little, too late, statement that CHA agrees with the recent awakening of the U.S. Conference of Catholic  Bishops that public funding of abortion  and coercing the practice at the religiously run hospitals would be a bad idea.

Recent history has shown us that both the CHA and the USCCB have been willing to pass control of health care to people whom, as a group, are known to:
cheat on their taxes while demanding we pay,
accept bribes,
have association with the untimely deaths of ordinary citizens,
engage in personal practices which most of us find abhorrent,
favor health care rationing
abrogate the conscience rights of health care professionals who choose not to kill humans
favor, fund and obtain abortions
export the latter practice as population control for the “brown people” of the world.

Either the leaders of the CHA and USCCB are insane, or they have had  very short term economic issues in mind when attempting to get along with the slime of Washington DC.  It  is antithetical to good reason to hand over complete control of health care to a horribly corrupt institution, and expect for it to remain mostly  free from  the killing which the institution is known to favor.

Pharmer reminds the CHA and USCCB  that when their health care institutions no longer display any difference from the public institutions, the special social position and private funding which they have obtained will cease to exist.

Australian farmer victimized by bogus Climate Change agreement on Hunger Strike

Peter Spencer is not permitted to work his farm in order for the Australian government to meet Kyoto climate change standards.   His fight with the government over fair compensation began in 2005.   At the end of his rope, he commenced a hunger strike this month  (Dec 2009.)  The Australian media has finally stopped ignoring the plight of Spencer and other farmers like him.
