Catholic Rock:Matt Maher: "Turn Around" Live at Mission Community Church in Gilbert, AZ

Young man on the side of the road

Lost and beat up with nowhere to go

Smells like a hangover from days ago

He does what he can to survive

Single mom with a dead end job

Ninety hour week just to keep what she's got

With the bills that add up and now she's caught

She does what she can to survive

Well, let me say

That love won't take away the pain

But don't be afraid

'Cause it will never walk away


If you're scared that you don't matter

If you're lost and need to be found

If you're looking for a Savior

All you gotta do is turn around

Some turn to a bottle

Some turn to a drug

Some turn to another's arms

But it seems like it's never enough

Well I won't say, that you will never fail again

But there is grace

To wash away your every sin


If you're scared that you don't matter

If you're lost and need to be found

If you're looking for a Savior

All you gotta do is turn around

No one listens to you anymore

And your heart has broken down

You don't need to move

Love has come to you

All you gotta do is turn around

All you gotta do is turn around

Turn around

You don't have to take the broken road

You can turn around and come back home



If you're scared that you don't matter

If you're lost and need to be found

If you're looking for a Savior

All you gotta do is turn around

No one listens to you anymore

And your heart has broken down

You don't need to move

Love has come to you

All you gotta do is turn around

All you gotta do is turn around

Ireland:Joe Higgins/Sinn Fein Misinformation on Household charge

Joe Higgins/Sinn Fein and various independent TDs are engaged in a despicable misinformation campaign on the Household charge.  On TV, Radio, in the print media and at public meetings throughout the country  they  claim that the money will be used to pay off bondholders. Of course this is utter nonsense. Ireland this year will have a budget  deficit of c 17 billion euro. In short it is BORROWING  €17 billion to fund Social Welfare, Health, Education, Transport et al.  Put it another way. One euro in every three spent by the government to fund Social Welfare, Health, Education, Transport  is BORROWED.  None of the money raised by this charge  goes to bondholders. It goes to the Local Authorities to help provide  services.
In fact bondholders  since 2008 have been paid from the National Pension Reserve Fund and BORROWING.  How could the government pay off bondholders from existing taxes which are not sufficient to fully fund  state spending on Social Welfare, Health, Education, Transport WITHIN  Ireland?

The anti Household Charge campaigners seek to sabotage efforts to stabilise  the public finances.  Make no mistake about it.  This is an effort to cripple the country financially and instal a Trotskyite form of government.  Shame on the  Far Left as it  seeks to sink our economy  with a brand of politics more akin to that found in North Korea.  It is in  the interests of all that our public finances are put on a firm footing.
The Socialist Party led by Joe Higgins is a Trotskyite  Party. Its ideals are anathema to 99% of the Irish people.  Sinn Fein  in power in Northern  Ireland supports an average  household charge of €1500 yet in the South it opposes a €100  household charge. It is playing with fire.  Quite frankly any TD who incites people to break the  law should be expelled from the  Dail PERMANENTLY.

UN: Irish Family Planning Association Hypocrisy on Abortion

Ireland was criticised by a lobby group today at a UN human rights review in Geneva for rejecting other states' recommendations on abortion.

A delegate speaking on behalf of the Irish Family Planning Association told a hearing that the State's "restrictive regulation" of abortion was "astonishing".
She said Ireland had rejected six recommendations from peer countries: Spain, Denmark, the UK, the Netherlands, Norway and Slovenia. It was "astonishing in a State that expresses such respect for human rights", she added (Irish Times)
The Irish Family Planning Association  and kindred organisations have used every stratagem possible to foist  abortion on the Irish people.  This  trip to the UN is another plank in the campaign. They pro -aborts in Ireland are small in number but very vociferous. And of course they have much media support. Thankfully the majority is strongly  opposed to abortion in Ireland

So the delegate finds  Ireland's rejection of abortion astonishing does she? She is unhappy that we  are prepared to ignore the dictates of other counties on abortion is she?  I have news for the Irish Family Planning Association.  The Irish people will not accept dictation from the UN on the abortion issue. What an obscenity to  demand the provision of abortion as a human right. The most basic human right of all is the right to life.  Abortion is the deliberate killing of the innocent  unborn child in the womb. Sadly in this world the womb is now the most dangerous abode for a child. In  fact 52 million  babies are aborted annually. To  put it bluntly they are executed.  The The Irish Family Planning Association  has the neck to call the execution of the unborn  child  "a human right". Lets be blunt: Abortion is murder. It is a money making racket that destoys women and children. It is not a human right. It is a crime against humanity. The abortion clinics are the modern gas chambers.  Abortion is the new Holocaust. It is time to cut  off the flow of taxpayers money to the  Irish Family Planning Association . It can be better spent in schools and hospitals.

 Clearly the UN has lost its way.  It  has now become a vehicle to promote the killing of the unborn. Meanwhile it turns a blind eye to real human rights abuses in many dictatorships.

Video: Planned Parenthood-Be Warned:Here Comes The Catholic Church- I Have A Say

I Have a Say: Father John Hollowell

Planned Parenhood which executes the unborn was founded by Margaret Sanger. Sanger was a strong believer in eugenics. She said " the most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it."She also said  "We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population,"

Of course  Planned Parenthood is strangely silent on this. Future generations will mention this satanic organisation in the same breath as the Nazis, slave traders and Communists. Father John Hollowell  in this powerful video warns Cecil Richards of Planned Parenhood that the Catholic Church is ready for battle.
Ms Richards: The unborn have a right to a say.
[The song at the end is Matt Maher's "Isaiah 61" ]

One  Republican supported Obama.13 Democrats who call themselves Catholic voted to attack religious freeedom. Shame on them.

George Soros Funding Gobal Push To See Abortion Legalised in Ireland

The Irish experience is hugely important for the global pro-life community. That’s because our record proves that, by banning abortion, we best serve mothers and babies. Ireland is the example pro-life activists the world over can point to, because we’ve shown that abortion is never necessary. The abortion industry is, of course, particularly discomfited by the fact that Ireland, without recourse to abortion, is the safest place in the world for a mother to have a baby, according to the United Nations. And Irish medical experts have testified that their experience shows abortion is not needed to preserve the lives of mothers - whatever conditions arise during pregnancy.

Little wonder, then, that enormous global pressure is being brought to bear on Ireland right now. However, most people would be surprised to hear that the push to legalise abortion in Ireland is being funded by wealthy Americans: with funding coming from billionaires George Soros and Chuck Feeney, and from multinationals like Goldman Sachs through donations to Planned Parenthood affiliates.

The most recent legal attack on Ireland's pro-life laws was a court case - the ABC case - taken to the European Court of Human Rights. The court case was sponsored by the Irish Family Planning Association, the Irish affiliate to International Planned Parenthood. The lead attorney in the case, Julie Kay, has worked for both Planned Parenthood and the Legal Momentum Fund - which works to legalise abortion.
The US based Legal Momentum Fund enjoys massive funding from Goldman Sachs, Pfizer and others, raising almost €8 million dollars in 2008 alone. Their Annual Report for that year describes Kay as a Senior Staff Attorney and reveals its involvement in planning the ABC case. Also supporting Kay with the ABC case was the US Centre for Reproductive Rights - a legal centre headquartered on Wall Street. Their 2009 Annual Report shows income for that year at $13.8 million with donations from the Ford Foundation, Google and others.

It is difficult for local pro-life advocates to match such lavish funding, especially when resources for abortion campaigns also comes from wealthy individuals, such as Chuck Feeney, the American billionaire. Feeney made the headlines in Ireland last week when it was announced that he had given €1,500,000 to ensure a
‘Yes’ vote to the forthcoming referendum on children’s rights. But the billionaire has given millions to organisations pushing for social change in Ireland for a decade or more. According to the website of his foundation Atlantic Philantrophies, he has funded the Irish Council for Civil Liberties (ICCL) to the tune of some $7.7 million dollars.

The ICCL has long been an advocate of legalising abortion in Ireland, but recently it caused major controversy when it claimed it had the support of major Catholic charities for a report it put together to submit to the United Nations which contained a strong call for abortion legislation.

The report, entitled 'Rights Now', cost a whopping $190,000 to produce and was funded entirely by Feeney's foundation. It said that "By restricting abortion, the [Irish} State disproportionately interferes with women's rights to health, privacy, life, freedom from inhuman or degrading treatment and non-discrimination". The ICCL claimed that major Catholic organisations such as the development aid charity Trócaire supported the contentious report, but in a major embarrassment for the Feeney-sponsored lobbyists, Trócaire and other charities withdrew support when the Life Institute raised a controversy regarding the call for abortion. However, the ICCL report encouraged other countries to attack Ireland's ban on abortion at the subsequent UN hearing in Geneva. What's also interesting is that, without Feeney's support, the ICCL would hardly exist since it receives almost no support from the public. For example, in 2009 the organisation only managed to raise € 8,822 in donations from the Irish public but received more than €2 million from Feeney's foundation the following year.

Feeney has also given more than €1,000,000 to the National Women’s Council of Ireland, who took part in last week’s press conference announcing that abortion legislation was to be brought before the Dáil. There are other massively wealthy figures funding the push for abortion in Ireland. George Soros, the New York based investor billionaire, gave €100 million to the self-styled rights organisation, Human Rights Watch (HRW) , in 2010 - the same year that the organisation visited Ireland to attack that country's ban on abortion. HRW slammed the Irish government in a document provocatively titled "A State of Isolation: Access to Abortion for Women in Ireland," and demanded that "immediate steps" be taken "toward decriminalizing all abortion for women living in Ireland". The document even suggested that the authorities do more to shift public opinion towards abortion.

The funding being lavished on abortion campaigners amounts to unwarranted and unwanted interference in Ireland's affairs in a bid to smash the pro-life ethos that protects both mothers and babies. Two decades of persistent public engagement and education has maintained Ireland's pro-life majority, and, in that time, abortion campaigners have failed to win the necessary public support to build momentum for abortion legislation. But they are now openly availing of the massive global funding being made available to efforts to overturn Ireland's pro-life laws. As in many other jurisdictions, since they cannot get the people to agree with abortion, they want to use the courts and the massive wealth and power of a tiny elite minority to foist abortion on the nation.

We need to work and pray to ensure that they will not succeed. And we can begin by telling Chuck Feeney, George Soros, Goldman Sachs and others to stop funding the push for abortion in Ireland.
Please email the following to respectfully request that they stop funding abortion campaigns to foist abortion on Ireland.
