    [Catholic Caucus] Pope Francis courting catastrophe by fudging wording on Fatima consecrationThe pontiff indicated that he will consecrate 'humanity' and not just Russia. Mon Mar 21, 2022 - 7:12 pm EDT (LifeSiteNews) — The requests of Our Lady of Fatima for the consecration of Russia were very specific. In at least eight attempts over the last nearly 100 years, Popes have failed to do it as she explicitly requested. And for that very reason, the promised full conversion of Russia and world peace were not granted to the world.The best opportunity for the consecration of Russia has presented itself now,...
  • Wake Up, Progressives: You're Lucky To Have Kyrsten Sinema

    Brian Murray knows just how fierce an opponent Arizona's Sen. Kyrsten Sinema can be. The Republican strategist saw his candidate lose to Democrat Sinema in their 2012 race for the House. Calling the experience "unpleasant," Murray admits his candidate, Vernon Parker, was flawed, but "flawed candidates win all of the time. Kyrsten, however, was an absolute machine." Sinema, along with fellow centrist Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, has recently become the epicenter of American politics largely because she insists on siding with the interests of her constituents instead of the demands of her party. Over the past few...

Uriel '18' Valles Domínguez was apprehended by security forces in the northern Mexican municipality of Chihuahua City on Wednesday, two years after the barbaric incident that left three mothers and six children of a tight knit Mormon community dead. Officials have yet to say what charges he faces, or his suspected links to the mass-slaughter.

    Phoenix – Former Congressman and Republican gubernatorial candidate Matt Salmon today issued the following statement about President Donald J. Trump’s endorsement in the Arizona gubernatorial race: “I have a great deal of respect for President Trump and the hard work he’s done for our country, but I disagree with his decision today. “The clear fact remains that Kari Lake isn’t a conservative or even a Republican, and she certainly isn’t the MAGA candidate in this race. She is a former registered Democrat who donated to Barack Obama and John Kerry, who refused to support Republicans, and who gushed over Dr....

    Laura Gaddy, who grew up as a devout Latter-day Saint in North Carolina, says she felt her surety in church principles begin to unravel in 2015, when leaders pulled Joseph Smith’s “seer stone” from a vault and showed it to the media. For her, according to court documents, the event signaled that the faith’s founding prophet had not translated the Book of Mormon, the church’s signature scripture, directly from gold plates inscribed with reformed Egyptian characters, but instead had dictated the narrative “from a stone with his head in a hat.” Gaddy came to be deeply troubled by what she...

    VALDOSTA, Georgia — President Donald Trump said Saturday during a campaign rally for the Georgia Senate runoff elections that no one has “fought harder for me” than Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA). The president praised the junior Georgia senator’s fight for Trump’s America First agenda. “When Kelly came in, I didn’t know what to think. There was nobody that fought harder for me,” the president said. The president also described Loeffler as a “trooper.” The president also noted that Loeffler had attacked Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) for prolonging the impeachment trial against Trump. “She is so tough and smart; she even...

    Just before the Democratic National Convention kicks off Monday, Joe Biden’s campaign staged a national virtual event Saturday in which a parade of Latter-day Saints told fellow church members why they support the former vice president. And sometimes they also said why they see President Donald Trump as wicked. It came during an event where participants opened and closed with prayer, quoted scriptures, repeated teachings of church leaders and sometimes shared testimonies that helped put Biden in a divine light. “We can probably all agree that Donald Trump isn’t good or right,” said Abigail Woodfield, president of BYU College Democrats....

    Calls to ban statues, flags and images of groups that were involved in slavery would have to include the Democrat Party's Donkey and Islam's Crescent, as both of these institutions were involved in the enslavement of Africans. Beginning in colonial times, approximately 350,000 African slaves were brought to America. This number grew to nearly 4 million slaves prior to the Civil War. Slaves were purchased at sharia Muslim slave markets. Sharia Islam defended the right to own slaves, as its founder, Mohammed, owned slaves. Beginning in 622 AD, the next 1,400 years saw an estimated 180 million Africans enslaved in...

    Never Trump Republicans planning to gather in Charlotte, North Carolina, in August, at the same moment as President Trump’s renomination celebration there are taking aim at congressional Republicans. The “Convention on Founding Principles” is scheduled to coincide with the Republican presidential nominating convention, which is set for Aug. 24–27 at the Spectrum Center arena. . . . “Even if Trump weren’t in the picture, the party would still need some reforming,” said Evan McMullin, a Never Trump Republican and one of the organizers of the event. McMullin mounted a failed, eleventh-hour third-party bid against Trump in 2016 and later co-founded...

    Utah has decriminalized bigamy, which allows two people to marry while one or both of them is already married, to a crime carrying the same penalty as a traffic ticket. . . . Utah GOP Gov. Gary Herbert signed the bill into law in March and it has gone into effect today. Republican state Sen. Deidre Henderson, who sponsored the bill, said Utah's previous law never kept people from maintaining polygamous relationships, it only pushed them into the shadows.

    A statue of the Angel Moroni sits atop the Salt Lake Temple in a 2015 photo. The temple was damaged Wednesday in an earthquake that also dislodged Moroni's trumpet. (CNN)The 5.7-magnitude earthquake that shook Utah Wednesday morning also dislodged a symbolic part of Salt Lake City's iconic Mormon temple: the trumpet of an angel statue atop its highest spire. The temple is the spiritual focal point for the 16 million members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. "The trumpet on the Angel Moroni statue fell off, and there is minor displacement of some of the temple's smaller...

    Several posters today have been criticizing Mitt Romney by simply saying “Mormon”* or something similar, as if that explains it all. I’m sure that every religion has someone who has done something foolish, but somehow, their religion is never mentioned. To help everyone understand that it is not Romney’s religion that is making him act like a buffoon, I’ve compiled a brief list of people that have helped make America great who were either raised Mormon or became Mormon.

    As Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) delivered a history-making speech on the Senate floor on Wednesday afternoon, becoming the first U.S. senator to ever vote to remove from office a president of his own party, Romney did not express his greatest emotion when he called the actions of President Trump “grievously wrong.” He was most emotional when he talked about God. “As a senator-juror, I swore an oath before God to exercise impartial justice. I am profoundly religious. My faith is at the heart of who I am,” Romney said at the start of his speech. Clearly moved, he paused for...

    LA Times ^ | Feb 5, 2020 | RONE TEMPEST
    Utahans reacted to Sen. Mitt Romney’s decision to break Republican ranks with a mixture of pride and dismay Wednesday, with some in this majority-Mormon state even suggesting that his vote to remove President Trump from office recalled a prophecy attributed to the church founder Joseph Smith. Although generally debunked as apocryphal by modern historians, the so-called White Horse Prophecy dates to 1844 when Smith himself was a candidate for president of the United States. The Mormons — members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints — have long regarded the U.S. Constitution as a divinely inspired document. According...

    Gloria Romanorum ^ | Florentius
    The idea of Purgatory as an intermediary state between Heaven and Hell is one of the most misunderstood and occasionally ridiculed aspects of Catholic doctrine. Though it is common for Protestants and even some Catholics to assume that Purgatory has no foundation in Sacred Scripture, that claim is actually false. The need for Purgatory developed from a close reading of Scripture by the Fathers of the Church, and the concept has a provenance stretching back to the earliest days of the Church. Furthermore, it has come to my attention recently that the Orthodox have a similar understanding of the need...
