So...what constitutes an "Emergency Alert", then? A ridiculous announcement of "NO COLLUSION"? Or a shout of "LOCK HER UP"? Can we be assured that this won't be abused??????

You are PURPOSELY missing the point. He presented himself as a choirboy but continually gets caught in lies. In addition, he shows poor temperament. Stop defending the side issues and look at the main issue. Don't we have another, better candidate?

I don't think this makes the point you think it does.

3/3 He shouted at and interrupted sitting senators in a hearing. he didn't answer the questions. He demonstrably lied. He dissembled. But ... you go on and vote for him, sir, because you must have seen something else that was SCOTUS-worthy.

2/3 He acted like a petulant child. and he cried about the bad stuff that is happening to him (because he's being accused of something and might not get a job he really wants) like a toxic narcissist manipulator

1/3 He was nakedly partisan (attacked the "left" and Democratic senators and accused them of making this up to attack his character and suggested they did so on behalf of the Clintons).

Except that if he were a woman reacting that way, he would be called "histrionic", and people would wonder if he was "on his period".

Anyone who has eyes and ears would understand a no vote from you on Kavanaugh.

If Kavanaugh was a woman, his testimony wouldn't be described as "powerful and riveting", rather "shrill and histrionic."

Per Canon Law (Canons 1249-1253), this penance was never deleted, so "restoring" it isn't an issue. Many chose to hear "no need to observe meatless Friday" forgetting to choose a different penance in substitution. In today's climate, one technically could add ANOTHER penance.

Bravo Cameron. This is our teaching whether it conforms to society or not. It is our role as disciples to explain the teaching, not to chuck it because it is difficult.

Please do your research. This was also proposed in 2010 prior to this Pope...people need to stop having knee jerk reactions to Francis just because of their like/dislike of him.

Here's one of my all-time fav heroines, Sr. Sara Butler. She is an international theologian of the highest rank. Once promoted "women's ordination." Did a 180. Her book is definitive!

Friends, I ask that you join me in prayer today for those who have been sexually abused by bishops and priests. Let us grieve with the Mother of Sorrows over the wounds inflicted on them, and let us petition our Warrior Queen that they might know not only compassion but justice.
