The News: July 2003 Archives - Inside Politics

Democratic presidential candidate Dennis J. Kucinich has called for $60 billion to provide universal preschool and proposes paying for the plan with a 15 percent cut in Pentagon spending.
"The Pentagon budget has just gone through the roof," the Ohio congressman said at a forum in Ottumwa, Iowa, on Sunday. "We need a critical analysis and a real effort to claim back money from the Pentagon."
The Democratic presidential candidate from Ohio didn't specify all the spending cuts he would push, but did single out missile defense, the Associated Press reports.
"I'm not talking about trimming around the edges here," he said.

VATICAN CITY — The Vatican, alarmed by growing legal acceptance of homosexual "marriage," is issuing instructions to bishops and Catholic politicians in an effort to halt the trend.
The instructions, which call on politicians to oppose extending rights granted to traditional couples, are in a document prepared by the church's guardian of orthodoxy, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.
The document — "Considerations Regarding Proposals to Give Legal Recognition to Unions Between Homosexual Persons" — will be released Thursday, the Vatican said.

Oops, did I replace the original words in Mikey's quote with "Christian" and "Catholic"? You betcha. Christian and Catholic kids are getting harassed with the atheistic, morally relativistic, and secular humanistic garbage that passes for public school education these days. Give a kid a fish and he has a meal. Teach a kid to fish and he'll tell you it's mean to hurt fishes. Oops, I mean he'll be able to eat all the time. You betcha.

BOSTON — Clergy members and others in the Boston Archdiocese probably sexually abused more than 1,000 people over a period of six decades, Massachusetts' attorney general said Wednesday, calling the scandal so massive it "borders on the unbelievable."

Man Wakes From 19-Year Coma


"He's my husband, I married him for better or worse, thick or thin, ‘til death do us part. There was just no way I could give up hope on him."

What? Who?

On life and living in communion with the Catholic Church.
