What’s At Stake in the Left’s Effort to Redefine ‘Sex’ in Pennsylvania Law

Wolf, named America’s most liberal governor

A new effort from the far left in Pennsylvania would reverse the state’s reputation as a bastion of tolerance and civility.

Now, in the face of a legislative stalemate, the Pennsylvania Human Rights Commission is making an end run around the legislature to impose a freedom-robbing policy through a bureaucratic agency that was founded to guard our civil liberties.

The Pennsylvania Human Rights Commission’s website www.phrc.pa.gov, is inviting public comment on the proposed guidance via email to chreese@pa.go through Friday, May 26.

“This change in guidance by the [Pennsylvania Human Rights Commission] effectively means a change in law, a change that would be devastating to personal privacy and religious liberty,” said Randall Wenger, chief counsel of the Independence Law Center.

“That’s why it’s important that lovers of liberty make their voice heard to the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission during their public comment period.”

Lovers of the legitimate, constitutional lawmaking process may wish to chime in as well.

PSALM 137

I will praise thee, O Lady, with my whole heart: because by thee I have
experienced the clemency of Jesus Christ.

Hear, O Lady, my words and prayers: and in the sight of angels I will sing
praise to thee.

In whatever day thou shalt invoke me, hear me: and multiply thy power in my
soul.

Let all tribes and tongues praise thee: because by thee salvation is
restored to us.

From all trouble save thy servants: and make them live under thy protection
and peace.

Glory be to the Father, etc.

Cardinal Sarah Has the Pope On His Side. But His Name Is Benedict – Settimo Cielo

Benedict XVI writes:

“We should be grateful to Pope Francis for appointing such a spiritual teacher as head of the congregation that is responsible for the celebration of the liturgy in the Church.”

And it will soon be in the Italian edition that Cantagalli will begin to sell at the end of June. While the French and English editions will publish it in their future reprints.

Is Pope Francis in fact secretly the “Protector” of Medjugorje? Did Pope Francis just “Troll” Mainstream Catholic Media with his recent comments about Medjugorje? –

Pope Francis knows this very well.

“Now let’s see if Catholic media can set aside their bias against Medjugorje and report
