Crossed The Tiber

An Evangelical Converts to Catholicism

Location: Pennsylvania, United States

I was born into the Catholic faith. At 14, I was "born again" and found Jesus personally but lost His Church. After thirty years as an evangelical protestant, I have come full circle to find that He has been there all the time, in the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. I wish others to find the beauty and truth of the Catholic faith as I have found.

North Dakota's Dr. Seuss Bill Passes

(Note the little person on the end of Horton's trunk)

In North Dakota yesterday, the state house of representatives passed a bill that reiterates Dr. Seuss's famous statement.
"A Person is a Person no matter how small."
The new bill declares that from the moment of conception, a human is a person.

"For purposes of interpretation of the constitution and laws of North Dakota, it is the intent of the legislative assembly that an individual, a person, when the context indicates that a reference to an individual is intended, or a human being includes any organism with the genome of homo sapiens."

"On Monday the state House of Representatives also approved an informed consent law requiring any woman seeking an abortion to be informed that the procedure kills a "whole, separate, unique, living human being." HR 1445 passed in a 61-31 vote. From Lifesite News

So it doesn't outlaw abortion, but it will make it illegal for the last abortion mill in N. Dakota to tell the clients they are just removing a "blob of tissue."

Pray that other states will follow suit and heed the words of Dr. Seuss.

"Blob of tissue" Yep, TJ, you and I are on the proverbial "same page" as truly brothers and sisters in Christ do 'think alike!' Praying for the conversion of sinners, of our leaders in the political realm and those in the Church who've been led astray. Truth will out, as always! Bravo N.D.!

This is exciting and beautiful! But I can't help but wonder how long it will take for a panel of activist judges to tear it down....
