Evil lays an egg: Relic of the True Cross Welcomed Back to the Cathedral of the Holy Crosss

At an incredibly joyous, solemn, wonderful service this evening, folks from the Cathedral of the Holy Cross and throughout the Archdiocese of Boston praised and thanked God, and all His angels and saints, for the return of the Relic of the True Cross of Christ, and for the the forgiveness of those responsible for its theft.

What was planned as a service imploring the Relic's return evolved into—following the Relic's return last Monday—an hour of heartfelt thanksgiving and adoration.
God is good. Good is good.

Evil, once again, missed the mark.

We adore Thee, O Christ, and we bless You! Because by Thy Holy Cross, Thou hast redeemed the world!

According to Shariah Law, homosexuals must be killed?

These guys seem to think so. You know, I'm getting more than a little nervous when folks speak about "moderate Islam."

Relic of The True Cross FOUND! Praise God!

From the Archdiocese of Boston:

Our prayers have been answered as the Relic of the True Cross has been recovered. We are grateful for the great work of the Boston Police Department in their search for the relic. Their professional and diligent work made this effort successful. We also extend our appreciation to the Vermont State Police who assisted in the recovery effort. God has blessed us with His love and capacity to forgive. We prayerfully carry on His call for forgiveness for those responsible.

Graphic images at anti-abortion rally disturb passersby

It was (and remains) appalling to see, in the TV saga "Roots," the depiction of Africans brutally kidnapped by slave traders. And it was appalling to see how their American owners treated them. It was (and remains) appalling to see, in documentary after documentary, the treatment of Southern blacks in the films first released in the 1960s. It was (and remains) appalling to see the slaughter of Jews in Germany in documentary after documentary. It was, and remains appalling. That's what these graphic images are supposed to do...appall. Wake up, folks. We're talking about slaughtering babies. It's appalling.

Money quote:
Thompson said he had spoken with Operation Rescue members last week to make sure they understood the state laws about buffer zones and how far they had to stay from the clinic.

Thompson said police continue to examine local ordinances to determine whether the protesters can use imagery like that displayed Thursday morning or whether they can say the rosary and pray aloud during protests outside the clinic on Groveland Street.

"Realistically, we're not going to stop people from praying," he said.

Graphic images at anti-abortion rally disturb passersby; police say protesters lacked permit (They didn't need one...duh, there's the First Amendment.)
