For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. ---Ephesians 6:12

"The age of casual Catholicism is over; the age of heroic Catholicism has begun. We can no longer be Catholics by accident, but instead must be Catholics by CONVICTION." ---Fr. Terrence Henry TOR, Franciscan University of Steubenville

Obama Executive Order Allowing Federal Funding of Embryonic Stem Cell Research STRUCK DOWN!

In March of 2009 President Obama signed an executive order allowing federal funding for embryonic stem cell research (embryonic destruction) and the expansion thereof.  Shortly after, a group which encourages adoption of frozen embryonic children known as Nightlight Christian Adoptions filed suit in federal court challenging the executive order.  

Today, US District Court Judge for the District of Columbia, Royce Lamberth (pictured left) ruled that the executive order issued by President Obama clearly violated the "plain language" of the Dickey-Wicker amendment, which states that taxpayer money is not to fund research in which embryos are "destroyed, discarded, or knowingly subjected to risk of injury or death."

Hooray for the unborn!  While this, of course, won't solve the problems of abortion in America or our death-laden culture, it's always great to see a pro-abort-President stopped in his tracks.

Excellent. I am glad that this judge followed federal law and God's law, even if our president does not!
