Catholics believe that being Catholic corresponds to truth

"Let me state clearly that I did not leave the C of E (Church of England) over women's ordination or homosexuality though in regards to both of these issues I hold the Catholic orthodox line. I became Catholic because being Catholic was true, the primacy of Peter and his infallibility is true and the lack of the Magisterium in Anglicanism leaves the priest with nothing other than his (or now her) own opinion.

"On June 7, 2009 I resigned as a priest in the Church of England. On July 18, 2009 I was received into full communion in the Catholic Church. I have been asked numerous times if I am sorry that I left when I did as a result of the news this week from the Vatican on what Pope Benedict XVI is graciously offering Anglicans. The answer is a theological profound no way. I am a Catholic now and I have never been more happy about my personal decision to depart when I did. I could do no other as it was an issue that impacted the salvation of my soul as one who was theologically convinced of Catholic theology and what it meant to be a Catholic in communio with the Holy Father and the universal Catholic Church."

-- Jeffrey Steel (De cura animarum blog), formerly an Anglican priest, writes of his reasons for entering the universal Church with his wife and six children

Catholics believe Pelosi and pals can run, but they can't "Hyde"

Pelosi and all her elected pro-abort pals want you to think the Hyde amendment applies to the proposed Health Care program. It doesn't.

We are not allowed to use the word "lie" to apply to this despicable and condescending behavior because that is now also declared politically incorrect. How about "mendacious"?

Nancy: You and your elected pro-abort pals can run, but you can't "Hyde". We are outing you.

Thank you.

Catholics believe no talk of dignity, justice and peace is meaningful in the face of abortion

"a society lacks solid foundations when, on the one hand, it asserts values such as the dignity of the person, justice and peace, but then, on the other hand, radically acts to the contrary by allowing or tolerating a variety of ways in which human life is devalued and violated, especially where it is weak or marginalized"

(Evangelium Vitae, 93; cf. Caritas in Veritate, 15).

-- Pope Benedict quotes Pope John Paul II in his speech upon the occasion of acceptance of the credentials of the new US ambassador to the Holy See, Honorable Miguel Humberto Díaz.
