Catholic Senator Speaks Out

 "I'm so sick and tired of the pontificating about [Democrats] not being the party of faith. The next Republican that tells me I'm not religious, I'm going to shove my rosary beads down their throat." ---Sen. Joe Biden

A Catholic Politician speaking about using PHYSICAL FORCE to evangelize his faith? Could this be something the Vatican approves of?

 

 

"The Catholic Church has persecuted ... when she thinks it is good to use physical force she will use it... Will the Catholic Church give bond that she will not persecute?... The Catholic Church gives no bonds for her *good behaviour*." -Western Watchman, Dec. 24, 1908 (emphasis added)

 University to ban Bibles
Wants 'students of all faiths feel at home'

Edinburgh University in Scotland will begin banning Holy Bibles from its student halls of residence due to concern they are the source of discrimination against students of other faiths.

The ban was a response to student association protests as well as an agenda to equally support all faiths, a university spokesman told the Times of London.

A Gideon Bible is traditionally placed in the room of all new students, and there are currently about 2,000 bibles in the Pollock Halls campus near Holyrood Park. Gideons International has handed out 63 million Bibles worldwide in places such as hotels, prisons and hospitals.

Since the school has students from 120 countries and all different faith backgrounds, officials believe that the distribution of Bibles could be offensive to some students.

Ruth Cameron, an advocate of the removal of Bibles from the campus, and the student association president said, "The student association strongly believes in the importance of ensuring that students of all faiths feel at home in their university accommodation," she said.

She also stated that the removal of Bibles is not about attacking Christianity but about "respecting diversity."

The proposal to remove Bibles will be voted on by the student association and then given approval by the university.

This is not the first removal of faith from Edinburgh University. Last year the school removed prayer from graduation ceremonies.

On the other hand, Stirling University was forced to stop plans to remove 6,000 Bibles from the campus after a huge protest from Christian students. The university came to the compromise of inviting all faiths to place their holy books on campus.

An Edinburgh University spokesman says the university will make a final decision later but will take the wishes of the student body into account: "The student body is made up of diverse faith backgrounds which are evenly supported by the University Chaplaincy which pursues a policy of supporting all faiths and none."

Rev. John Lowry of Niddrie Parish Church in Edinburgh, said, "It is very disappointing from our point of view. But I can understand why people have chosen to do this."

Let me get this straight... They say they want ALL faiths to "feel at home?" Yet the Christian Bible is BANNED? To further muddy the waters of deception they then say the University Chaplains pursue "a policy of supporting all faiths and none" All faiths and NONE? CoNfUsEd? And then the "Rev" says he can UNDERSTAND why they do this? This may be par for the course coming from a man that "appears" to ignore Biblical jurisprudence. Why does he appear to be ignoring the Lord? I pray I am wrong and he some how never read Psalms 111:9 where it clearly says, "He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and reverend is his name." This this man, like many men claim the title "Reverend?" Techically speaking, that is blasphemy. (See John 10:33)
