In the wee hours this morning I heard the heartbreaking news that Anne Rice died, surrounded by loved ones, due to complications from a stroke.
Anne revolutionized gothic horror writing with her layered, humanizing, and sensuous approach to storytelling...
Anne Rice initiated a trend toward more sympathetic portrayals of (say) vampires, telling the story of their eternal power and anguish from *their* point of view, which became the de facto norm for later shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Twilight, and True Blood.
The LGBTQ community in particular embraced Rice's supernatural creatures’ ‘outsider’ status as their own, and she embraced them right back, becoming an early safe haven and trusted voice for queer folk.

I am terrified of what this country has become. #Religious #dictatorship of far-right government (or rather ruling party's chairman) has destroyed the tripartite system.
An almost 100% ban on #abortion has been already introduced ([1],[2]) under the label of "being pro-life", without providing any actual support for disabled children and families in need.
Yesterday the parliament approved an anti-#LGBT bill in first step of legislation ([3]). Racism and homophobia are on the agenda ([4]), especially in the givernment-run tv stations.

AN AGNOSTIC WITH NO AX TO GRIND TOLD ME, ‘IF I WERE RELIGIOUS, I’D BE A ROMAN CATHOLIC.’

-thread-
1. It was the haphazard remark of a photographer, an agnostic I believe, that opened my eyes... it was to the effect

#CatholicEdChat #Jesus #Twitter #Bible #books #BookTwitter Image
2. that if Christianity were true, obviously the Roman Catholic Church, with her authority was right.

It was the testimony of a man who had no ax to grind. A Jewish dentist made the same remark in effect to me shortly afterwards. The man-in-the-street

3. testifies the same with his: ‘If I were religious, I’d be a Roman Catholic.’

WHY SHOULD I STAKE MY IMMORTAL SOUL UPON HUMAN OPINION?

I entered upon an intensive study of the point. I read the history of the doctrine,

THE HOLY MASS

-thread-
1. At the hour of death the Masses you have heard will be your greatest consolation. Every Mass will go with you to judgment and plead for pardon.

#HolyMass #DailyMass #news #DailyDevotional #uk #Christmas #China #Christianity #CatholicTwitter #Twitter Image
2. At every Mass you can diminish the temporal punishment due to your sins, more or less according to your fervour.

Assisting devoutly at Mass you render to the Sacred Humanity of Our Lord the greatest homage. You afford to the souls in Purgatory the greatest possible relief.
3. You are preserved from many dangers and misfortunes which would otherwise have befallen you.

You shorten your Purgatory by every Mass.

Apparently, according to a letter just received from @govkristinoem, I am part of a radical left wing cabal, am despicable, a mob, & the stock I own is ending this country & I won’t stop till the Consitituition lies in tatters.
(My W River team won the state Bicentennial of the Constitution Competition & got flown to DC while Kristi was a cheerleader bouncing up & down & waving pompoms at sporting events.) Oh, & she takes a stab at teachers unions. My folks taught in South Dakota for decades.
They also ranched, raised two kids to love their neighbors, & my dad, the fella she just sent her hate mail to -asking him for money- was a genuine champion South Dakota cowboy who died last year. We buried him on the last day of #Sturgis, rodeo buddies unable to come due to

Modern history represents how the #Secularist & #Capitalist #Europe was established while Islam & #IslamicCivilization was grounded to a halt .
After centuries of painful experiences Europe finally realized that it would establish itself on the stage of history unless it shattered the world-guiding global siege of Islamic civilization .

2. appeared in the sky above holy Golgotha extending as far as the holy Mount ofOlives. It was not revealed to one or two people alone, but it appeared unmistakably to everyone in the city. It was not as if one might conclude that one had suffered a momentary optical illusion;
3. it was visible to the human eye above the earth for several hours. The flashes it emitted outshone the rays of the sun, which would have outshone and obscured it themselves if it had not presented the watchers with a more powerful illumination than the sun.

1/ This was a dream & vision that God gave me last year on March 24th, 2020. Then, I only shared it w/ 2 other ppl, that I recall.

I saw a man in white robe with a sword in his hand fighting against an enemy. Two young women were standing beside him, one on each side. ...
2/ Fire and smoke shot toward them, and a head appeared from the midst of the smoke. The head was that of a dragon. The head of the dragon had two horns on his head like an antelope. The dragon told the man that he cannot defeat him or protect the two women. The man replied ...
3/ to the dragon, telling him that he is really weak and that he only gets his power by speaking lies. The dragon became enraged and replied, "I will show you my power and strength." The two women told the man that they will help him. The man thanked the women, and he gave ...

THREAD 📜

The non-sugarcoated view of #Christianity on #Islam.

Pastor Kachelmeier about why the old Lutherans considered Islam a Christian (!) heresy (and not its own religion). Listen to the ignorance of these Trinitarian textbook polytheists and thank Allah for Tawhid.
Other textbook pagans and idolaters like Orthodox Christians share similar views and claim Islam is an agnostic (!) heresy. The Islam-hating Syrian monk, priest, and apologist, John of Damascus (يوحنا الدمشقي) who died in 749 CE hated Islam and Muslims with passion.
The vile Mushrik John died in 749 CE and it is said the Umayyad caliph of his time ordered his right hand be cut off and hung in public view.

I am considering making a Facebook group for #ProLife for the #Whole Life (#ConsistentLifeEthic) Christian leftists of various kinds, from #socdems, to #socialists, to #distributists, and
others, to combat these following false stigmas about #Christianity(including #Catholicism) and #leftism:

1. That #Christians(including #Catholics) can’t be #leftists/#socialists/etc.
2. That leftists can’t be #religious
3. That leftists can’t be #ProLife

Do you think this
is a good idea? I want to find more people who have a similar mentality of me. Or maybe I could expand it to just do prolife religious leftists in general, considering some other pro-life whole-life religious leftists may also face scrutiny by both American leftist and
