The Empty Tomb


Happy Easter.

At the heart of our Faith is the empty tomb. St Paul was right to observe: And if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty. It is yet another sign of the authenticity of the accounts of the evangelists that they made no attempt to coordinate their accounts of this, the most central events. Elsewhere on this blog we have shown how the accounts do not contradict one another, but are, rather, what one might expect from four different perspectives, none of which was by an eye-witness; that the first witness was someone whose testimony would have been worthless, Mary Magdalene, is another of those signs of truth, and we see in Acts, St Paul’s first epistle to the Corinthians, and St John’s first epistle, the importance the evangelists attach to their status as men who had seen and…

VATICAN CITY (AP) — Marking Christianity’s most hopeful day, Pope Francis made an Easter Sunday plea for peace and dialogue in Ukraine and Syria, for an end to terrorist attacks against Christians in Nigeria and for more attention to the hungry and neediest close to home.

Well over 150,000 tourists — Romans and pilgrims, young and old — turned out for the Mass that Francis celebrated at an altar set up under a canopy on the steps of St. Peter’s Basilica.

So great were their numbers that they overflowed from sprawling…

cherrypickingGuest essay by Dr. Tim Ball

Cherry-picking data in climate science gained notoriety during the joint Committee Hearing chaired by Representative Barton on the “hockey stick.” Steve McIntyre reported,DArrigo put up a slide about “cherry picking” and then she explained to the panel that thats what you have to do if you want to make cherry pie.There’s another form of cherry-picking central in Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) science that involves finding people to produce the science you want. They bring the cherry-picked data with them.

Anthropogenic global warming (AGW), first appeared on the world stage after the 1988 hearing before the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee. Chair Senator Timothy Wirth described arranging for the appearance of James Hansen whose testimony became central justification for the global warming fiasco that still continues. It was the first major example of…

Dueling climate reports – this one is worth sharing on your own blog

Originally posted on Watts Up With That?:

NOTE: This op-ed is apparently too hot for some editors to handle. Late last week it was accepted and posted on politix.topix.com only to be abruptly removed some two hours later. After several hours of attempting to determine why it was removed, I was informed the topix.com editor had permanently taken it down because of a strong negative reaction to it and because of “conflicting views from the scientific community” over factual assertions in the piece.

Fortunately, some media outlets recognize a vigorous scientific debate persists over humanity’s influence on climate and those outlets refuse outside efforts to silence viewpoints that run counter to prevailing climate alarmism. My original piece follows below.- Craig Idso

The release of a United Nations (UN) climate change report last week energized various politicians and environmental activists, who issued a new round of calls to reduce greenhouse gas…

Illinois House committee OKs $100 million for Obama library


, , ,

The state of Illinois’ debt is approximately $175 billion. Of the $175 billion debt, “$146 billion of which is for pensions and retiree benefits not currently funded, and $109 billion of which the state doesn’t report” yet Illinois’ House Speaker Michael Madigan is pushing a proposal that would contribute $100 million in state funds toward the construction of Barack Obama’s presidential library in Chicago.

Chicago Tribune

…Madigan said it’s appropriate for Illinois to commit public funds for the library even though the state is grappling with serious financial problems.

The state of Illinois will spend over $1 billion in construction this year alone, so $100 million is not out of line,’ Madigan said after the House Executive Committee threw its support behind the library funding plan in a unanimous vote. ;It’s clearly a good investment for the future.’

While presidential libraries are traditionally funded mostly by private donations, Madigan pointed out that “close to $100 million in state money” was earmarked for the Abraham Lincoln presidential library in Springfield. ‘So we have precedent for this,’ he said….

“So we have precedent for this” — Translation — We have a precedent for spending other people’s money and money we do not have. Not to mention the thuggery of Illinois bureaucrats and contractors who see this venture as another opportunity to siphon off tax dollars.


Obamacare Hammer and Sickle

So again, I ask why $100 million? Why so much? All one needs is a picture of the One, a hammer, sickle and an Obamacare logo.


Obama presidential library


Oh yes and an outhouse for visitors. Just saying.

Pelosi Washes Feet of Immigrants – Pushes Amnesty on Holy Thursday

pope-pelosi Holy Thursday washes feet of immigrants

The Gateway Pundit

Speaker Nancy Pelosi washed the feet of two immigrant children on Holy Thursday.
Then she pushed amnesty.
Everything is political with this horrible woman.

The Margaret Sanger award winner said the ceremony was ‘to honor the dignity and work of immigrants….’


Continue Reading


Politicizing Holy Thursday. Ohhhhhhh, the Pope is going to get after her about this one but then it would not be the first time a pope has taken the evil Botox Queen to task for her sins.

Pelosi, false prophet, disciple of Lucifer, no doubt, courting unsuspecting Christian Latinos while (i) she supports the murder of unborn babies during any stage of pregnancy and probably after; and (ii) fellow Communists are engaging in an all out war on Christians in America.

Another one who thinks she is going to bogard her way past the pearly gates into Heaven. This woman has no shame.




Pronunciation. Today’s lesson.


Get it right people because as the mother says, “The dash don’t be silent.”

How do you pronounce this?

        How do you pronounce this:  Le-a
OKAY. How would you pronounce this child’s name?   Le-a (written just like that)
Leah?? NO     Lee – A?? NOPE     Lay – a?? NO     Lei?? Guess Again
It’s pronounced ‘Ledasha.’ Oh yes, you read it right.     This child attends a school in Livingston Parish, LA. Her mother is irate because everyone is getting her name wrong. SO, if you see something come across your desk like this, please remember to pronounce     It correctly.
When the mother was asked about the pronunciation of the name, she said, ‘The dash don’t be silent.’

For Whom The Cow Bell Tolls

Dirty Harry

“Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert.  And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it.” – Wayne Allyn Root

“The standoff in the Nevada desert wasn’t about a desert tortoise or a rancher’s failure to pay grazing fees. It was about the state’s senior senator again enriching himself and his family at public expense.” – IBD

“This isn’t over.” – Harry Reid

Why Is U.S. Senator Harry Reid So Concerned With A Local Nevada Rancher?

[...] It has been pointed out by journalists intent on covering for Reid that a $5 billion Chinese solar project backed by Reid was recently shelved. But what they forgot to mention is Reid’s involvement in multiple solar and wind projects across the Nevada desert. Only days ago, Senator Reid was featured in a photo at a groundbreaking ceremony for a new solar project. Where is that project located? Just…

Good Friday? Good Indeed

“The hour has come that the Son of Man should be glorified…….I say to you. unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies it produces much grain….”   John 12:23,24

“If you loved Me, you would rejoice because I said, I am going to the Father….”  John 14:28

There is a paradoxical aspect to mornings.  On the one hand they are the start of a new day.  We can look at that day as a fresh start, an opportunity that has never happened before.  Although there is another way to look at a morning; as the continuation of the tragedy and desperation of the night or day that proceeded it.  The new day is nothing more than a harbinger of more disaster.

One could only guess how the cherished loved ones of Jesus decided to face this day.  One…

Three falls

Originally posted on New Beginnings:

No original reflection from me today – it feels like everything that can be said about Good Friday has already been said.  Instead I’ll share with you three beautiful sonnets from Malcolm Guite’s Stations of the Cross (http://wordpress.com/read/blog/id/4531601/).  The three poems and stations I found particularly moving when I read them are the three times Jesus falls under the weight of the cross.

III Jesus falls the first time

He made the stones that pave the roads of Zion
And well he knows the path we make him tread
He met the devil as a roaring lion
And still refused to turn these stones to bread,
Choosing instead, as Love will always choose,
This darker path into the heart of pain.
And now he falls upon the stones that bruise
The flesh, that break and scrape the tender skin.
He and the earth he made were never closer,
Divinity and dust…
