Austrian Catholics fly rainbow flag after
same-sex blessing ban

Original Article

The Catholic church of the parish of Hard is one of many in Austria which decided to fly the rainbow flag in solidarity with the LGBT community after the Vatican ruled last month that the Church couldn't bless same-sex partnerships. The powerful Vatican office responsible for defending church doctrine, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF), handed down a ruling that same-sex unions could not be blessed despite their "positive elements". The office wrote that while God "never ceases to bless each of His pilgrim children in this world... he does not and cannot bless sin".

The homosexual priest infection of the Church is destroying it from within. Satan is pleased.

I wish all churches would follow the Bible and endorse the Christian marriage of a man and a woman. Some denominations are like Democrats and the Constitution. They ignore what is written and invent blessings and sacraments that are not mentioned in the Bible. The Bible specifically says that a man shall leave his home, cleave unto his wife and become one flesh. How any Christian church can promote homosexual behavior and conduct same-sex marriages is baffling to me.

I suppose a Community of people who call themselves Catholics can do just about anything they like in that Community. If they go against this Vatican ruling some sort of answer should be coming from the Vatican. The day my Church does something like this is my last day to go to Mass there, and to send my money there too. Perhaps I can find a real Catholic Church to go to if not is it better to stop going to Church or still go when it is in Apostacy.?

#2, it’s being done to get more people into the pews and more money into the collection basket. A couple of years ago I drove through 4 states in New England while on a business trip. I had several days to kill and stayed off of the interstates to enjoy the countryside. Almost every Protestant church I passed had a rainbow flag on display on the front of the building.

We do not agree with this outdated position. See, the Church is outdated. To these freakin whack jobs things must change to fit their sick lifestyle. Typical sick liberals, they don't follow rules, rules change to fit their narrative. Whatever they want to do is fine, they just change the law. You see, they change religion, they change the law, they change the climate, they change voting laws and they change their freakin sex depending on what day of the week it is. All of this while they respect nothing, its all about them. Selfish and shameful.

I'm only surprised that Biden didn't pick an actual illegal alien to head CBP. That'll come a little later. Meanwhile, Biden decided to nominate Tucson, Arizona police chief Chris Magnus, to head Customs and Border Protection. [SNIP] It ought to go without saying that the head of a pro-illegal department who actually blocked the Border Patrol from doing its job has no place whatsoever heading up CBP, but Biden, like Obama, keeps appointing foxes to oversee the national henhouse.

'You have been outspoken on issues of your personal faith. Otherwise, I normally wouldn't bring this up,' CNN's Jake Tapper posed to Buttigieg.

Police visited the L.A. home of a podcaster this week a day after after he posted a tweet criticizing AOC and her comments on Israel and Palestine. Ryan Wentz runs the online show Soapbox and tweets under the handle Queelamode. On April 7, he posted a link to an interview where AOC stumbled and struggled to answer questions on how to resolve peace in the Middle East. Wentz called her answers 'incredibly underwhelming'. The next day, two California Highway Patrol officers visited him at home in L.A. to caution him for allegedly threatening a member of congress.

The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) declared on Thursday that mandatory vaccinations do not violate human rights and may be necessary to remedy public health concerns. “The measures could be regarded as being ‘necessary in a democratic society,'” the court judgment stated. They ruled that mandatory vaccinations administered in the Czech Republic were not illegal because the jabs were delivered in the “best interests” of children. “The objective has to be that every child is protected against serious diseases, through vaccination or by virtue of herd immunity,” the judgment added.

We haven’t forgotten the oil spill in the Mediterranean, this past February, that led to hundreds of tons of tar (the thicker emulsion that results from the oil-and-water mix) coming ashore along almost all – 160 km. out of a total of 190 km. – of Israel’s coastline. The damage to marine life was extensive, to the beaches, horrific. Thick gobs of the tarry stuff, in places some four to five inches thick, along with many thousands of smaller blobs, covered the waters and the rocky shore, spread over the the beaches that for a very long time will be unfit for use.

Princeton is selecting fewer white students every year and now takes more non-white applicants than any other Ivy League school, new data from the university has revealed. Princeton announced on Thursday that it had sent letters out to its class of 2025. The successful applicants will learn by 7pm EST if they've got a place or not. More than 37,600 applied and 1,498 were selected. Of them, 68 percent - 1,018 - 'self-identify' as people of color. The school did not separate among that group how many are black, Hispanic, Asian or any other race, leaving 32 percent - 479 students - to 'self-identity' as white.

With restrictions set to ease, hopes for a good summer were already sky high. And scientists have now said there could fewer Covid deaths due to the change in season. Experts found sunnier places had around a third fewer deaths from the virus. They believe exposure to the sun’s rays – specifically UVA – caused the skin to release a chemical which stops the virus from spreading. [SNIP] The reduction could not be explained by higher levels of vitamin D, the experts said, as the areas analysed had insufficient levels of UVB to produce enough of the vitamin in the body.

The flag is flying from a crane 150ft over the construction site and a city ordinance claims it needs to be licensed.

Former Major League Baseball commissioner Fay Vincent has slammed successor Rob Manfred over the 'mistake' of moving the All-Star Game from Atlanta to Denver in response to the new voting law in Georgia that many believe to be racist. 'Major League Baseball can't become a weapon in the culture wars, a hostage for one political party or ideology,' the 82-year-old Vincent wrote in The Wall Street Journal's opinion section. Georgia's new law limits mail-in voting and allows for more legislative control over the election process following former President Donald Trump's baseless claims of voter fraud in the 2020 election.

George Floyd died in police custody after a corner store clerk reported he had used a fake $20 bill, a nonviolent offense so low-level that police don't usually take people to jail for it. Now, as the trial over his death continues to unfold, criminal justice reform experts and diversity specialists are hoping the case will prompt retailers—from small businesses to major chains—to reassess how they treat Black and other minority customers and how they can handle loss prevention cases more equitably. Retailers, they point out, are on the front lines of racial justice in their own stores. "While interactions with the police

Joe Biden handed Kamala Harris the job of "point person" for the border crisis on March 24, and for three weeks now, she's been AWOL. She's an embarrassment to the Biden administration at this point, as New York Post columnist Miranda Devine notes, pointing to the growing severity of the crisis. Joe, in fact, actually created the crisis, first by incentivizing child migration with a vow that no illegal child migrant, even one brimming with COVID, could ever be sent back, and bringing back catch-and-release for everyone else. Biden's also suspended construction of the border wall, which has turned into a gift to the human smuggling rackets. He's rescinded

Gavin Newsom.” Regan could, for example, require automakers to sell cars that
