Medical Pamphlet Distribution Halted
The Roman Catholic Altoona-Johnstown diocese has ordered a priest, John Nesbella,
[from the Prince of Peace parish in Northern Cambria] to stop distributing
a 7 page pamphlet authored by Paul Cameron, a sociologist who chairs the
Family Research Institute in Colorado Springs, Colo. The booklet is extremely
graphic in its descriptions of homosexual acts and declares the medical dangers
of such aberrant behavior. A spokeswoman for the Catholic church said the
priest was ordered to cease and desist because the "explicit nature of the
material might lead us to become part of the problem rather than part of
the solution." The booklet declares that types of gay intercourse "spread
hepatitis B, HIV syphilis and a host of other blood-borne diseases." The
pamphlet is titled
Consequences Of What Homosexuals Do and may be read online at
Frankspeak [From a story sent
by Diana Ladd]
Gen. Tommy Franks recently gave an interview to the magazine "Cigar Afficionado"
that appears in their December issue. The Purple Heart (x3)/Bronze Star (x3)
award winner, now retired from U.S. Central Command, told the magazine "the
worst thing that could happen”is a major terror attack which kills many.
Franks mused, “It means the potential of a weapon of mass destruction and
a terrorist, massive, casualty-producing event somewhere in the Western world
it may be in the United States of America that causes our
population to question our own Constitution and to begin to militarize our
country in order to avoid a repeat of another mass, casualty-producing event.
Which in fact, then begins to unravel the fabric of our Constitution. Two
steps, very, very important.” He is the first high-ranking official to openly
speculate that the Constitution could be scrapped in favor of a military
form of government.
Griswold Steps Down From Ecu-Board
Recently, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, received the
resignation of the presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church (USA), Bishop
Frank Griswold, from his position as Anglican Co-chair of the Anglican-Roman
Catholic International Commission. Griswold stepped down due to the divisions
in his denomination over the homosexual issues. His letter was concluded
with "continuing prayer for the full and visible communion of the Anglican
and Roman Catholic churches, for the sake of our broken and divided world."
The "Most Revd" Peter Carnley, Primate of Australia, has been asked to fill
the post of co-chair.
GLA Death Penalty
Earlier this year in South Africa, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance (GLA) voted
(19-2) in favour of a name and identity change to the Death Penalty Party
of South Africa (DPP). The party's members continue to exist as the "lesbigay"
league of the newly formed DPP. The change was to gain membership and be
a stronger political force.

1941 - Japanese attack Pearl Harbor (a date that will live in infamy) when
some 400 planes attacked from 6Japanese carriers and freely bombed the harbor

earlier warnings and sightings. The devastating losses included 6 of the
8 battleships, 3 destroyers, and 7 other ships were sunk or severely damaged,
and more than half the island's aircraft were destroyed. A total of 2,400
Americans were killed and 1,200 were wounded. Japan's losses included 29
planes and 4 midget submarines. Credible information has surfaced increasingly
over the years that FDR and the US not only knew of the attack but intentionally
provoked it. US Naval Intelligence decoded Japanese military cables including
one the day prior so they knew what was coming. 40% of US planes were ordered
away from the base, an aircraft carrier and cruisers were also sent away.
Shipping routes for supplies were detoured to allow the Japanese fleet unhampered
entry. The Red Cross sent extra medical supplies in advance of the attack
-confirmed by the Hawaii chapters own records(Just like FEMA to NY the day
prior 9-11 disaster). President Roosevelt told a reporter prior the attack
that the American people would never agree to enter the war in Europe unless
they were attack within their own borders. The evening prior FDR returned
late to a White House dinner and announced that the war would start tomorrow
- they stayed all night at the Capital. For more info surf the net and you'll

During filming in a remote area of Italy earlier this year for the controversial
Mel Gibson film "The Passion of Christ," the actor who portrays Jesus, James
Caviezel, was struck during a lightning storm. The blast left Caviezel's
ears smoking. Also struck by the same bolt was assistant director Jan Michelini.
More interesting is the fact that Michelini had been struck at a previous
shoot for the film as well, in Matera, Italy where he suffered light burns
to his fingers after lightning hit his umbrella. None of the strikes created
a serious injury. Who says lightning never strikes twice?
Earlier this week, in a small basement cinema of Rome's Prati district, the
film was previewed by a select group of Catholic clergy. The Passion of the
Christ," will make its premiere on "the first day of the Catholic Lenten
observance", Feb. 25. See www.passion-movie.com.
"The celebration of Lent has no basis in Scripture,
but rather developed from the pagan celebration of Semiramis's mourning for
40 days over the death of Tammuz (cf. Ezek 8:14) before his alleged
resurrection---another of Satan's mythical counterfeits." (John MacArthur,
Jr., The MacArthur New Testament Commentary: 1 Corinthians, Chicago: Moody,
"'It ought to be known,' said Cassianus, the monk of
Marseilles, writing in the fifth century, and contrasting the primitive Church
with the Church in his day, 'that the observance of forty days had no existence,
so long as the perfection of that primitive Church remained inviolate.' Whence,
then, came this observance? The forty days abstinence of Lent was directly
borrowed from the worshippers of the Babylonian goddess." [The Two
Babylons (Or The Papal Worship), Alexander Hislop, 1916, Neptune, NJ, Loizeaux
Brothers, Inc., p.104]
In an attempt to gain money to pay the $85 million settlement to victims
of clergy sex abuse, the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston placed a for
sale sign on the archbishop's mansion which sits on some 27 acres. The property
was recently assessed at nearly $14 to $20 million. The tragic part of it
all is that, even though Archbishop O'Malley promised that no collection
plate money would be used to pay the debt, the most interested buyer is Boston
College, a Jesuit university located across the street. Hey, Its all in the
The Cathedral of the Holy Cross and St. John's Seminary were mortgaged for
$75 million and added to a $15 million loan from the clergy retirement fund
to secure bank loans so the archdiocese can get the settlement money upfront
while they wait to sell off the archbishop's mansion and other properties.
