And here’s why: meet the real Freedom of Conscience petition, y’all. Because although the NARAL petition was indeed a Ferrari like the one we knew was behind us, the petition I was driving was good ol’ American Iron of the type that whipped the Ferraris at LeMans four consecutive times.

An Interview On Why I Drafted the Petition…

can be found at The Revered Review. “Revered” as in Paul Revere. Thanks for contacting me, Mary Lou. After all, I’m proud to be from a small town that is located in the great state that rhymes with Galilee. [Read more…]

The Blog “Whosoever Desires” asks the Question, “Why War?”

The answer is quite simple, really. Wars happen because the ones who start them think they can win. Anthony Lusvardi, SJ, gets into more detail here. Read it, share it, and prepare.

The President Remarks About Our Petition…Bravo Zulu

“I can’t believe Frank Weathers brought that petition into my den, and then shot it clear through the ceiling, and it’s headed to the Moon. That is awesome.”

No. God is awesome, and so are all the folks who took the time and effort to sign the little petition that could. You’ve heard me say it once, and I’ve said it a million times. Bravo Zulu, to all of you. BZ, BZ, BZ. [Read more…]

Like a good Jedi. The Empire has conspired to turn the moon into a Deathstar, see,  and your support is needed to turn this:

Neat, but no Hyper-drive

A Word From Your Captain: The USCCB Has Noticed The Petition

Via radio transmission from the U.S.S. Freedom of Conscience, Joe Six-Pack, USMC, Commanding

But the reason I’m calling you in mid-flight is this: I just wanted to thank each one of you who have signed, or shared, or posted the little link that shows the Administration that we believe in the First Amendment, and the whole rest of the Constitution. If you haven’t had the opportunity to sign it yet, here’s as good a reason I’ll ever have to try and push you into action: our Bishops have got our backs on this one. Lookee here: [Read more…]
