So says Bill Donohue of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights who made this comment on Planned Parenthood’s religious bigotry:

Tomorrow night in Seattle, Planned Parenthood will stage “Bar Nun Bingo” at Poquitos in the Capitol Hill neighborhood; two days later, it will hold another “Bar Nun Bingo,” this time at the downtown Pike Brewing Company. Both fund-raising events will bash nuns, and will be led by the demonstrably anti-Catholic gay group, Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. Pictures of previous “Bar Nun Bingo” affairs show how sick it is.

Planned Parenthood has a long history of Catholic bashing. Its founder, Margaret Sanger, was both a racist and an anti-Catholic. In 1987, it trashed Mother Teresa, calling her an “old and withered person, who doesn’t look the least like a woman.” In 1994, it mocked the Eucharist at the Monmouth County Fair in New Jersey. In 1995, it blamed New York Archbishop John Cardinal O’Connor for the killing of an abortion doctor in Brookline, Massachusetts. In 1998, its opposition to school vouchers led it to brand the Catholic Church an “extremist” group on Long Island.

According to Planned Parenthood Bar Nun Bingo will feature fantastic prizes, yummy food and drink, and delightful special guests from The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence®, The Abbey of St. Joan, a Capitol Hill organization that educates the public on safer sex, queer rights, and other critical community issues.

The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence®, describes themselves as ” a leading-edge Order of queer nuns. Since our first appearance in San Francisco on Easter Sunday, 1979, the Sisters have devoted ourselves to community service, ministry and outreach to those on the edges, and to promoting human rights, respect for diversity and spiritual enlightenment. We believe all people have a right to express their unique joy and beauty and we use humor and irreverent wit to expose the forces of bigotry, complacency and guilt that chain the human spirit.”

School where professor attacked pro-life teen claims they were visited by “proselytizers hawking intolerance in the name of religious belief”

The California school that employs a professor accused of attacking a teen-aged pro-life demonstrator has issued an apology…sort of, according to Fox News.

In a long-winded 1,000-word letter that reads more like a diatribe than a mea culpa, University of California at Santa Barbara Vice Chancellor Michael Young eventually conceded that women’s studies professor Mireille Miller-Young should not have snatched a pro-life sign from 16-year-old Thrin Short, giving backhanded praise to the framers of the Constitution.

Miller Young

According to National Review, When the university finally opened up after several weeks of silence on the matter, the administration did not condemn the unnecessary and spiteful attack by a member of its faculty. Instead, it attacked the “anti-abortion crusaders” and “evangelical types” who came to campus “to provoke us, to taunt us and attempt to turn us against one another.”

Our Founding Fathers – all white men of privilege, some even slave owners – got it right when designing the First Amendment of the Constitution,” Young wrote in an open memo to the student body.

In a Memo to students and faculty from UC Santa Barbara, Vice Chancellor Michael D. Young writes, “Over the past several weeks, our campus has been visited by a number of outside groups and individuals coming here to promote an ideology, to promulgate particular beliefs (at times extreme beliefs), or simply to create discord that furthers a certain personal agenda. Some passionately believe in their causes, while others peddle hate and intolerance with less than noble aims.

Whatever the motives and goals, the presence of such people and groups on campus can be disruptive and has the potential to draw us into the kind of conflict that puts at risk the quality of exchange of ideas that is fundamental to the mission of our university. What is happening now is not new: evangelical types have been visiting UCSB and university campuses since time immemorial. What we see at UCSB today is simply the most recent generation of true believers, self proclaimed prophets, and provocateurs.

During the past few weeks, UCSB has been visited by various anti abortion crusaders. Some have been considerate and thoughtful in promoting their message; others have
openly displayed images that many in our community find distressing and offensive. We have also seen earnest and thoughtful religious missionaries, and we have seen
proselytizers hawking intolerance in the name of religious belief
.As a consequence of interactions with the more extreme of our visitors, students have expressed outrage, pain,embarrassment, fear, hurt, and feelings of harassment. Moreover, I have received requests that the campus prohibit the peddling of “fear,” “hate,” “intolerance,” and “discord” here at UCSB
.” Read rest here.

On March 22 – The Santa Barbara District Attorney filed charges of grand theft, battery, and vandalism against Professor Mireille Miller-Young for violence she committed against young pro-life activists who held a peaceful outreach on the UC Santa Barbara campus on March 4th.

March 27, 2014 the The radical pro-abortion professor at the University of California at Santa Barbara made headlines when she went berserk on a group of pro-life advocates on campus earlier this month.

The professor claimed that she set a good example when she attempted to incite students to violence and initiated the theft of a pro-life activist’s sign. We hope that the only example set by her actions is that crime will not be tolerated by the DA, nor the University of California. The prosecution should reach a resolution that deters anyone from committing these crimes again.

Catherine Short is the mother of 21-year-old Joan Short and 16-year-old Trin Short, two of the young women assaulted by the professor. She is also an attorney and Life Legal Defense Foundation Legal Director and issued a full statement about the case HERE.

Thrin Short was also interviewed on the pro-life TV show – Life Talk which can be viewed here:

Thrin Short Life Talk April 2014

Mark Crutcher, president of Life Dynamics, Inc. and host of Life Talk was outraged.

Mark Crutcher Life Talk April 2014

Crutcher asked why parents would send their kids to a school with such poor judgment that they did not fire Miller-Young immediately, “What is wrong with the parents and the students who are going there …paying all this money to go to an institution that would have a woman like this on staff. Why wasn’t she fired? If I had a kid going there, first off I am going to call the school and say, you’re not getting another nickel from me as long as this woman’s on staff. Because, it indicates bad judgment on your part. You’re judgment is so poor that this woman can admit that she did this thing, and then come out and say, I had the right to do it? And you’re going to keep her on staff, and you’re going to let her try to mold young minds? Not with my money, you’re not. Why are students still going there and why are parents still paying for it? That’s the part I don’t understand,” Crutcher stated.

Crutcher is publicly calling for the professor to be fired.

Short told Life Talk that the professor injured her scratching her arms.

I would ask UC Santa Barbara, Vice Chancellor Michael D. Young just who was the INTOLERANT one here?

Black minister- racializing and devaluing life in America

“We’re no longer getting our cue from the Biblical Text- we are getting our cue from the party text….we are locked in this bigotry…I think its time for us now to turn back to God..”

Amendment 26 – The Mississippi Personhood Amendment – is a citizens initiative to amend the Mississippi Constitution to define personhood as beginning at fertilization or “the functional equivalent thereof.” Its purpose is to protect all life, regardless of age, health, function, physical or mental dependency, or method of reproduction.

Article III of the constitution of the state of Mississippi is hearby amended BY THE ADDITION OF A NEW SECTION TO READ: Section 33. Person defined. As used in this Article III of the state constitution, “The term ‘person’ or ‘persons’ shall include every human being from the moment of fertilization, cloning or the functional equivalent thereof.” This initiative shall not require any additional revenue for implementation.

Super Bowl ad with John 3:16 rejected by Fox Sports , local minister is outraged !

Posted in Anti-Christian Bigotry, Christian, Church, persecution, Religion with tags , , , , , , , , on February 3, 2011 by saynsumthn

Report by the Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel :

The 30-second commercial shows football fans in a living room cheering wildly for a quarterback sack. Cut to a close-up of a player’s face. In the black smudge under his eyes it says, “John 3:16.”

The viewer is then directed to the website http://www.lookup316.com.

That’s it. Someone unfamiliar with the Christian Bible might not even get the reference.

The John 3:16 commercial was produced by Fixed Point, a Birmingham, Ala., religious advocacy group, which wanted it aired on Fox Sports during the Super Bowl this Sunday. The Super Bowl broadcast begins at 6:30 p.m. on Fox.

Fox turned down the ad because it contained “religious doctrine,” which is against their policy, said a Fox spokesman.

Fixed Point founder Larry Taunton is taking the rejection in stride, being mobbed by reporters since he put out a press release about what happened. John 3:16 was the lead religion item on HuffingtonPost.com on Monday.

For Christians, John 3:16 contains the essence of their faith: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

The verse also has been a part of broadcast sports since the mid-1970s. That was when rainbow-wigged Rollen Stewart became a minor celebrity for holding up a card with “John 3:16” on it in the end zone at football games and other major sporting events.

In recent years, others in the stands have held up the John 3:16 sign, but its most famous adherent is Tim Tebow, the University of Florida’s former star quarterback, who wrote Bible verses in his eye black.

The idea came to Fixed Point founder Larry Taunton during last year’s Super Bowl, when he asked himself, “If I had 30 seconds, what would I say to 106 million people?”

The day after last year’s Super Bowl, Taunton called Fox Sports.

“They said they probably wouldn’t air something like that, but they were intrigued and were willing to look at our story boards,” Taunton said.

Two months after receiving the story boards, Fox rejected the ad.

Taunton spent Monday and Tuesday being interviewed by reporters, mostly from religious publications.

“If we can achieve the same cultural dialogue this way, so be it,” Taunton said.

Fixed Point then bought two local TV spots during the Super Bowl in Birmingham and a few other cities. They will not be aired in the South Florida market.

When Boca Raton minister Mark Boykin heard about the rejected ad, he was offended.

“They call themselves ‘fair and balanced.’ They say, ‘We are a Christian nation.’ That’s their mantra,” said Boykin, who heads the Church of All Nations in Boca Raton. “If you’re going to have that moniker, you’d better stand behind it.”

Instead of turning the other cheek, Boykin went on offense.

He launched a letter-writing campaign on Tuesday after he heard that Fox had refused to air the John 3:16 commercial. The same Fox network that turned down the John 3:16 commercial allowed celebrities to use the F-word and the S-word — unbleeped — at the 2002 and 2003 broadcasts of the Billboard Music Awards show, which was watched by more than a million young people, Boykin said.

“I don’t see how we can give them a free pass on this,” Boykin said. “They’re counting on Christians being reticent and docile, but this one we are not going to let go.”

Since advertisers compete to produce Super Bowl ads that get people talking, Taunton said it is possible that the John 3:16 ad just wasn’t racy enough.

“Maybe if we had a girl in a bikini holding up a John 3:16 sign in one hand and a beer in the other, they would like it,” he said, laughing.
