Anonymous asked: Fetuses are little blobs of cells. Who cares if you get rid of them? The pregnant person's choices are more important. Care about the hungry kids in America, not fetuses with no conscience being killed.
I like how, in your mind, it’s impossible to care for born and unborn children.

Prayer in Hopes of Preventing Mortal Sin
O MARY, Immaculate Mother of Jesus, we beseech thee, offer to the Eternal Father the Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son, to prevent at least one mortal sin from being committed somewhere in the world today. Amen.
Anonymous asked: How can you not understand the coexist bumper sticker? It calls for the acceptance and dialogue of all religions. It's because of people following your stupid "only we are right so we refuse to accept that people might not agree with us" logic that our fellow brothers are being persecuted across the globe, also you might want to revise on your catholic studies because I'm 100% sure we're supposed to coexist with other religions.
The Catholic Church recognizes in other religions that search, among shadows and images, for the God who is unknown yet near since he gives life and breath and all things and wants all men to be saved. Thus, the Church considers all goodness and truth found in these religions as “a preparation for the Gospel and given by him who enlightens all men that they may at length have life.”
In their religious behavior, however, men also display the limits and errors that disfigure the image of God in them:
Very often, deceived by the Evil One, men have become vain in their reasoning’s, and have exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and served the creature rather than the Creator. Or else, living and dying in this world without God, they are exposed to ultimate despair.
To reunite all his children, scattered and led astray by sin, the Father willed to call the whole of humanity together into his Son’s Church. The Church is the place where humanity must rediscover its unity and salvation. The Church is “the world reconciled.” She is that bark which “in the full sail of the Lord’s cross, by the breath of the Holy Spirit, navigates safely in this world.” -Catechism of the Catholic Church 843-845
Now before you scream tolerance and acceptance, Anon, know that right now Christians are being persecuted in Mosul. They are forced to either convert to Islam, pay a tax, or leave their homes all because they are Christian. At this very moment they fear for their lives and watch in agony as their homes and places of worship are destroyed by the very people you want to coexist with. Should we turn a blind eye to their despair for the sake to coexist or stand up for what is right?
As a Christian, I am not called to coexist, that is to be willfully ignorant of the suffering of my brothers and sisters. I am called to love my neighbor and my enemies by desiring the greatest good possible for them, not to just tolerate them. I am called to preach the word of God and to be the light of Christ, not to lose myself in darkness and remain silent for fear that someone may disagree with my beliefs. And I am called to serve my neighbor, not to clear a path for hatred and persecution. Coexistence calls for tolerance and blind acceptance, for coexistence is not formed in love, but rooted in indifference. When evil like the persecution of those in Mosul are committed, your belief in coexistence will have you turn a blind eye because you must accept both faiths and have no enemy. You must accept and allow the killing and persecution of Christians, just so the other party can continue to carry out their false teachings of truth. This is not love, but apathy and hate.
I highly encourage you to seek love and truth at it source which is Christ, and to understand the meaning of slogan you hold so dear. Do not go forward in life believing that no one can become your enemy. There will always be wrongdoing and there must always be someone willing to take a stand against it. You can not take that stand if you try to side with both the oppressor and the oppressed.
Thank you for your question.
Peace be with you.
Anger and frustration are a gateway to sin. The Devil makes you fall when you lose your balance.
