    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- U.S. Senate candidate Amy McGrath said she vehemently opposes Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s plan to hold pre-election confirmation hearings to replace the late U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. “Total BS,” McGrath said.

    On a Thursday in August in Louisville, months before the 2020 election, a parade of cars filled with Kentucky Teamster representatives and labor groups, showed their fury at Mitch McConnell’s constant blocking of critical COVID aid. They drove by McConnell’s office raucously honking and bearing signs saying “Mitch better have my money.”In 2017, a Public Policy Polling Survey asked Kentuckians, “Do you approve or disapprove of Senator Mitch McConnell’s job performance?” Only 18% approved. He clawed his rating back up to 39% on the eve of the election.So, what exactly drove these angry Kentuckians to re-elect Mitch McConnell with a...

    Vets fume at McGrath's 'degrading' comparison of campaign work to combat Democratic Senate candidate Amy McGrath compared supporting her campaign to serving in uniform, prompting condemnation from a group of Kentucky veterans. During an August 29 virtual event, McGrath told members of her veterans coalition that by "helping this campaign," they were "doing as much" to help the country as when they "wore the uniform." "What you are doing in helping this campaign, you are literally helping your country," McGrath said. "I would say you are doing as much, right now, in being part of this effort, as you were...
  • Amy McGrath Equates Late-Term Abortion With C-Sections

    Kentucky Senate candidate Amy McGrath, who managed to narrowly win her primary a few weeks ago, pushes radical rhetoric on abortion as she seeks to unseat Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) in November. As Team Mitch previously pointed out, McGrath refuses to draw a distinction between trimesters for abortion; she previously said that she was "100 percent pro-choice." When pressed on where exactly she would begin to oppose abortion, and if a woman could elect to have an abortion while already in labor, McGrath used the evergreen cop-out that is a favor of Democrats. “I don’t think that government...
  • In Blow to Schumer, McGrath Lead Evaporates in KY Senate Primary

    Booker celebrated his newfound lead in a Thursday morning tweet, saying, "something big" was going on in the state. McGrath has yet to address the new vote total. McGrath will become the biggest fundraiser to lose a congressional primary in U.S. history should she fail to close the gap. She was endorsed by the Chuck Schumer-controlled Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee in February, using the national support to raise nearly $41 million. Nearly 97 percent of her campaign funds came from out-of-state donors, as McGrath ran watered-down ads in major liberal cities to court donors. Booker, meanwhile, raised just $793,000 as...

    Gov. Mike DeWine released a statement asking that Kentucky Democratic Senate candidate Amy McGrath not use his image in an “attack ad” against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. “Ohioans are focused exclusively on getting through COVID-19 and getting our people back to work, and I’m proud to work with partners at the local and federal level to get it done. It’s for that reason that I’m particularly disappointed with an attack ad by Amy McGrath that uses my image against my friend, Mitch McConnell,” DeWine said in a statement Saturday. “Mitch and I have worked together for a long time...

    As Democrat Amy McGrath was laying the groundwork for her Senate bid, she attended a dinner hosted by the Kentucky chapter of a radical anti-Israel organization that has been tied to funding of global terror networks. The Kentucky chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, known best as CAIR, posted multiple pictures of McGrath in attendance at its annual dinner on May 11, 2019. She is currently featured in the main photo of the group's Facebook page. McGrath launched her long-shot bid to unseat Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell in early July. Her first filing shows, however, that the campaign...

    Peruse the online biographies of the St. Clare Parish Council in California and one comes across this line: “John and his husband Willie are the parents of twin third graders at St. Clare School.” As it turns out, not only is "John" a member of the parish council, this man who is “married” to another man is also employed by Catholic Charities, “training psychology interns and providing bilingual mental health services.” For the last decade or so, local Catholic Charities across the country have been chased out of the adoption business in one jurisdiction after another because of their belief...

    A parish in the San Jose diocese in California is openly employing a gay married man, who is an active member of the parish council. Saint Clare parish in Santa Clara has posted on its parish website brief biographies of their parish council members. On a page titled "Meet the St. Clare Parish Council," the biography of parishioner John Sullivan ends with the following: "John and his husband Willie are the parents of twin third graders at St. Clare School." The Church staunchly opposes same-sex marriage, and branches of Catholic Charities have closed adoption agencies rather than place children with...

    In the Light of the Law ^ | July 5, 2017 | Dr. Edward Peters
    In 1977, during the darkest period of canonical confusion that ran from the end of the Second Vatican Council until the promulgation of the 1983 Code, then-Fr Patrick McGrath earned a doctoral degree in canon law from the Lateran University in Rome. Now-Bp Patrick McGrath of San Jose is surely aware, then, that multiple canonical requirements for sacramental participation exist and he would, I imagine, be distressed to learn that his recent letter, implying that “good faith” is the only criterion for admission to the sacraments, could be pastorally misleading.

    San Jose Bishop Patrick McGrath told practicing homosexuals that they will not be refused Holy Communion or a Christian burial in his diocese, as long as they request them in "good faith." Bishop McGrath issued the directive last week in response to Illinois Bishop Thomas Paprocki who, following Catholic teaching, said that those in same-sex "marriages" shouldn't present themselves to or be admitted to Holy Communion, nor should they receive a Catholic funeral if they died without showing signs of repentance. McGrath called Paprocki’s guidelines — without specifically mention his brother bishop — “confusing.”  “Recent news reports of policies and...

    The diocese of San Jose is saying its LGBT ministry will not "elaborate" on Church teaching on "sexual morality, conscience, and personal sin," while claiming that gay people can't change their sexual orientation. The document "Guidelines for the Catholic LGBT Ministry Council" bears the name of Bp. Patrick J. McGrath and is the guide by which Catholic parishes are to deal with LGBT people. It maintains from the outset that the guidelines "do not presume any particular social or psychological analysis of sexuality in our society, except for a generally accepted premise that individuals do not choose and cannot change...

McGrath (Too new - there are no customer reviews as yet) Editorial Reviews Review "Alister McGrath's The Open Secret provides nothing less than the foundations of a vigorous renewal of natural theology for our time. Theologians and others who have considered natural theology an exhausted topic will have second thoughts after reading this richly nuanced, scholarly, creative, and enjoyable book." John F. Haught, Georgetown University "This is vintage McGrath: confident, capacious in scope, brisk in exposition, decisive in argument. Noone is better placed to make a case for...

    Do stop behaving as if you are God, Professor Dawkins by Alister McGrathThe Daily Mail 5/18/2007 Original Article He is a 'psychotic delinquent', invented by mad, deluded people. And that's one of Dawkins's milder criticisms. Dawkins, Oxford University's Professor for the Public Understanding of Science, is on a crusade. His salvo of outrage and ridicule is meant to rid the world of its greatest evil: religion. "If this book works as I intend," he says, "religious readers who open it will be atheists when they put it down." But he admits such a result is unlikely. "Dyed-in-the-wool faith-heads" (that's people...
