DECEMBER 14, 2021Austrian Catholics Launch Public Rosary in Response to Lockdowns
JENNIFER BRYSON

*** begin quote *** 

Amid waves of highly restrictive lockdowns and a proposed universal COVID-19 vaccine mandate to start February 1, tensions in Austria, where I live, are on the rise. But in late November, a new light of hope appeared on the horizon, just in time for Advent. Louis-Pierre Laroche, a wine merchant and father of eleven, issued a call to pray the rosary with others in public, for Austria. Exhausted from the political responses to COVID offering just ever-increasing restrictions, suffering economically, isolated by the lockdowns, frightened and dismayed by the prospect of a universal vaccine mandate, Laroche’s call is resonating with Austrians eager to join in.

Weekly, on Wednesday evenings since the end of November, all over Austria people have started to gather in public to pray the rosary together as part of the Austria Prays initiative. The call is simple while also profound: “Pray for Austria!” every Wednesday night, in public, as a flyer explains, “so that our country, that is currently in one of the most serious crises in its history, will be entrusted to the Mother of God, and to ask for her intercession for all citizens.”

MLK, echoing Ghandi, gave us the key to resistance to tyranny.  Peace quiet non-cooperation.  (Like 4 years old Daniel has taught me, no one can make ANYONE do what they don’t want to do.  They can only hurt or kill you.  They still won’t do what you want.)

I’d like to see more peaceful resistance to tyranny.

BIGOTRY: I wonder what the flight attended would have done with a Koran?

American Airlines booted Brooklyn couple over religious shawl: lawsuit
By Kathianne Boniello

An elderly Brooklyn couple was booted from an American Airlines flight because they refused to place a bag containing their sacred prayer shawl on the floor, according to a lawsuit.

Roberto and Elana Birman were heading home from Miami on Flight 322 in August when the “humiliating” incident unfolded, they told The Post.

Roberto, 76, and Elana, 71, brought only a briefcase, a purse and his Tallit bag — a small, 8.5 inch-by-8.5-inch, clear plastic carrier for Roberto’s prayer book and shawl — onboard. They sat in aisle seats across from each other.

A flight attendant began checking overhead bins ahead of take off, pulled the Tallit bag from the overhead bin, and asked, “Whose is this?”

When Roberto claimed it, she allegedly threw the bag on his lap and said it had to go under his seat, the couple said.

“It’s a religious item, it cannot go under the seat,” Roberto explained, removing his baseball cap to reveal his kippah covering his head and explaining that as an Orthodox Jew, he is forbidden to place the precious shawl on the floor.

*** end quote ***

I’m personally offended.  Wish I could have been his seat mate.  He should have said “it’s a Koran” and I bet the response would have been different.

Did American Airlines take any action?

Maybe business travelers with lots of American Airlines should print this story and write a little note to the American Airlines CEO.

BIGOTRY: The secular religion is predominating the woke culture

Sippin’ Starbucks No More
By Paul Gottfried 

*** begin quote ***

The fate of Betsy Fresse, an evangelical Christian who refused to don a gay pride shirt in accordance with instructions from her manager in a Starbucks store in New Jersey is explained with remarkable concision in a recent Reuters article:

*** and ***

Let’s imagine that the dissenter was a homosexual activist being forced to wear a shirt stating marriage is between a man and a woman. This assertion would not have caused the slightest scandal up until about 25 years ago, because it would have expressed what everyone across the political spectrum had always believed—or was expected to believe.

*** end quote ***

Seems that we can see the “truth” when we put the shoe on the other foot.

Mostly, the question begging for an answer is: “Why do all these corporations suddenly get involved in politics?”

I don’t understand it.

Focus on selling your over-priced coffee, please.

This is inexcusable in the USA.

The Gooferment politicians and bureaucrats are incapable of protecting peaceful people at prayer.

A doctor who tweeted that she would ‘purposely give all the Jews the wrong meds’ has been found to have been posting anti-Semitic messages on social media for years.

Dr Lara Kollab, 27, a former resident at The Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio, wrote in now-deleted posts that she hoped ‘Allah will kill the Jews’ and referred to Jewish people as ‘dogs’.

The Cleveland Clinic has since condemned Dr Kollab, who retains her medical license, and confirmed that she is no longer working at the hospital.

*** end quote ***

Clearly, this is unacceptable in the USA.

Not that she can NOT have racist views.  But she can’t overtly threaten to harm people.

For that reason alone, she should lose her medical license.

She can always do pharma sales calling on only Jewish doctors?

That sounds like a plan.

“Stem cell go-ahead puts Obama at odds with pope”

Maybe I’m being picky, but should THE POPE be capitalized.

It’s a specific person or a specific title.

After all, if it was written: “Stem cell go-ahead puts obama at odds with Pope”, I can hear the screams now.
