Synod 2015

Synod 2015
"“Non possumus!” I will not accept an obfuscated speech nor a skilfully masked back door to a profanation of the Sacrament of Marriage and Eucharist. Likewise, I will not accept a mockery of the Sixth Commandment of God. I prefer to be ridiculed and persecuted rather than to accept ambiguous texts and insincere methods. I prefer the crystalline “image of Christ the Truth, rather than the image of the fox ornamented with gemstones” (Saint Irenaeus), for “I know whom I have believed”, “Scio, Cui credidi!” (2 Tim 1: 12). (Bishop Athanasius Schneider on Synod 2015)

Bureaucrats vs. Taxpayers

Dan Mitchell of the CATO Institute made this video which was posted on Big Government.Com yesterday. It's disheartening to learn what the public sector unions are dong to our financial future, but there is an easy (well, maybe not so easy) solution: abolish the federal departments (along with some others) mentioned in the video, and the savings could be passed along to private sector businesses so they could create jobs for the former federal employees. Of course those former federal employees would then have to work - and work for less money - but gravy trains can't run forever.

To read the whole post on which the video appeared, go here.
