FRONT ROYAL, Va., Aug. 11 /Christian Newswire/ — Life Decisions International (LDI) has released a revised edition of The Boycott List, which identifies corporations that support of Planned Parenthood, the world’s primary abortion-advocacy group.

“As a direct result of the commitment, action and prayers of pro-family people, at least 256 corporations have stopped funding Planned Parenthood,” said Kenneth C. Garvey, LDI’s Director of Communications. It is estimated that the boycott has cost Planned Parenthood more than $40 million since the Corporate Funding Project (CFP) began nearly 18 years ago. “This should serve as a testament to those who thought it impossible to change corporate philanthropic behavior.”

New boycott targets include AOL, Darden Restaurants (Bahama Breeze, The Capital Grille, LongHorn Steakhouse, Olive Garden, Red Lobster, Season 52), Franchise Services (PIP, Signal Graphics, Sir Speedy), Hilton Worldwide (Conrad Hotels, Doubletree, Embassy Suites, Hampton Inns/Suites, Hilton Garden Inn, Hilton Hotels, Homewood Suites), Ignite Restaurants (Brickhouse Tavern+Tap, Joe’s Crab Shack), ING (financial services), Kohl’s (department stores), Mrs. Fields (cookies), Staples (office/school supplies), Toys “R” Us, and Trader Joe’s (markets/supermarkets).

Returning to The Boycott List are The Gap (apparel/accessories) and Freddie Mac (U.S. Government-sponsored secondary mortgages).

Corporations continuing as boycott targets from the previously released Boycott List include AlphaGraphics, Wells Fargo (including Wachovia), Nike, Time Warner, Bank of America, Walt Disney, Johnson & Johnson, Lost Arrow (Patagonia, etc.), Chevron, and Nationwide Insurance, among others.

Garvey was critical of pro-life organizations that continue to use PayPal even though it has been a boycott target for several years now. “PayPal is owned by boycott target eBay,” Garvey said. “Most pro-life groups are aware that it is a boycott target because it has funded Planned Parenthood, but they have consciously chosen to continue doing business with the company. Doing so is indefensible.” Garvey said alternatives to PayPal exist and he will gladly help anyone who has trouble tracking them down. “It is unconscionable that anyone who claims to be pro-life would willingly do business with a company that funds the number one enemy of preborn children,” Garvey said.

The new Boycott List includes a “Dishonorable Mention” section, which identifies charitable groups that are associated with Planned Parenthood and/or its agenda. Groups named in this section include Lions Clubs, the American Cancer Society, Easter Seals, Boys & Girls Clubs, Ronald McDonald House Charities, Camp Fire, Girls Inc., Girl Scouts, Kiwanis Clubs, March of Dimes, Muscular Dystrophy Association, Rotary Clubs, Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, Salvation Army, YWCA, America Gives Back(formerly [American] Idol Gives Back), and YMCA, among others.

“This has not been some sort of ‘Jesse Jackson boycott’ where we make news for a few days and then go away,” said LDI Chairman Thomas C. Strobhar. “Corporate officials are learning that those who value life are among the most dedicated people on earth. We will not go away until corporate involvement with Planned Parenthood comes to an end.”

Planned Murderhood And NOW Attack Whistle Blowers

From LAPIDESCLAMENT BLOG

Amidst the undercover videos, NOW defends Planned Parenthood, accusing CMP of the “Big Lie” technique – but who’s really using the “Big Lie” technique?

I recently came across the official statement of Terry O’Neill, who is president of the National Organization for Women (NOW), that defends Planned Parenthood in light of the undercover videos revealing Planned Parenthood’s illegal work of harvesting and selling of body parts of aborted babies. The full statement, entitled “Video Attacks on Planned Parenthood Don’t Fool Us And They Shouldn’t Fool Congress,” can be found here.

I was shocked by the accusation by O’Neill laid against the group that created and publicized the videos. She said,

We can’t—and we won’t—respond to every “attack of the day” video that spreads the lie that Planned Parenthood sells parts from aborted fetuses for profit.  This is the classic “Big Lie” technique of repeating a salacious, made-up allegation enough times until people start to believe it.

O’Neill later concludes,

No one should be fooled by this campaign of lies, distortion and hate-fueled rhetoric.  The videos are phony and the accusations they contain will wither under scrutiny.  We’ve got enough phony news coming from the likes of Donald Trump.  Instead of giving oxygen to this video attack on Planned Parenthood, we should change the channel.

First of all, watch the videos. They speak for themselves. What lie are the investigators (The Center for Medical Progress, or CMP) speaking when it is Planned Parenthood’s senior staff and executives themselves who, plainly and simply, speak of collecting and selling body parts of aborted babies? Again, the videos speak for themselves. No wonder O’Neill says, “We can’t—and we won’t—respond to every ‘attack of the day’ video,” for the only next logical step would be admit the veracity of what’s said, not by CMP but by the confessions made by Planned Parenthood’s own executives.

As for the “Big Lie” technique, look who’s talking. I only gave a sample of O’Neill calling CMP liars, but it’s all over her statement. It is O’Neill, not CMP, who uses, in her words, “the classic ‘Big Lie’ technique of repeating a salacious, made-up allegation enough times until people start to believe it.” Here’s O’Neill in her short statement “repeating a salacious, made-up allegation enough times until people start to believe it” (the following emphases were added):

…an anti-abortion group purporting [emphasis added] to reveal unethical practices at Planned Parenthood…

…abortion opponents probably have gathered thousands of hours of deceptively gathered video…

Their ultimate goal is not simply to embarrass Planned Parenthood, but to concoct a tissue of lies that Congress can use to further roll back reproductive rights…

…“attack of the day” video that spreads the lie that Planned Parenthood sells parts from aborted fetuses for profit.

No one should be fooled by this campaign of lies, distortion and hate-fueled rhetoric.

The videos are phony

To O’Neill’s audience, I say, watch the videos and decide for yourself. But wait, O’Neill doesn’t want you to watch the videos: “Instead of giving oxygen to this video attack on Planned Parenthood, we should change the channel.” Instead of watching the videos, O’Neill only wants you to hear her “repeating a salacious, made-up allegation enough times until people start to believe it.”

So who really is using the “Big Lie” technique: CMP or O’Neill?

PLANNED PARENTHOOD AND PRIESTS

pp Mass

When I was sidewalk counseling at an abortion clinic last Friday, it hit me that it’s good that there’s actually a few priests and bishops speaking out against Planned Parenthood, but there’s still something worse than abortion.

“For no crime is there heavier punishment to be feared from God than for the unholy or irreligious use [of the Holy Eucharist.]”—Council of Trent, De Euch v.i., 16th century.

This could either refer to sacrilegious Masses or sacrilegious reception of Holy Communion.

Of course, the interior state of a person who is receiving Holy Communion can never be judged by another, especially based on exterior indications.  However, a priest or a bishop who publicly tramples the rubrics of his rite commits a public act of sacrilege, calling down upon him “the heaviest punishment to be feared from God.”  (ibid.)

Consider four frequently-broken rubrics found in a post-Vatican II document called Redemptionis Sacramentum:

1) “When Holy Mass is celebrated for a large crowd – for example, in large cities – care should be taken lest out of ignorance non-Catholics or even non-Christians come forward for Holy Communion, without taking into account the Church’s Magisterium in matters pertaining to doctrine and discipline. It is the duty of Pastors at an opportune moment to inform those present of the authenticity and the discipline that are strictly to be observed.”—Redemptionis Sacramentum 84

2) “The chalice should not be ministered to lay members of Christ’s faithful where there is such a large number of communicants that it is difficult to gauge the amount of wine for the Eucharist and there is a danger that more than a reasonable quantity of the Blood of Christ remain to be consumed at the end of the celebration.”—Redemptionis Sacramentum 102

3) “Only out of true necessity is there to be recourse to the assistance of extraordinary ministers in the celebration of the Liturgy.”—Redemptionis Sacramentum 151

4) “If there is a risk of profanation, then Holy Communion should not be given in the hand to the faithful.”—Redemptionis Sacramentum92

Is there a big enough chance the Eucharist would be profaned that would justify the switching of an entire parish or diocese from Communion in the hand to exclusively Communion on the tongue? First of all, a bishop once told me he believes 80% of those who received Holy Communion in his diocese received Holy Communion in a state of mortal sin.  I’ll never forget that number that he told me.  That right there is enough profanation to demand exact and immediate obedience to the rubrics of the Liturgy:  New Mass, Old Mass or the Byzantine Divine Liturgy.  This is because a priest doing the right thing automatically engenders worthy communions among the laity.

When a bishop preaches against a Satanic Mass that takes place in his diocese, that’s great.  But where did the Eucharistic host come from destined for sacrilege?  This answer I can give with 99% surety:  The consecrated Host came from a Mass in that same diocese where the satanist took Holy Communion in the hand from a lay Eucharistic “minister” who was quickly smiling at the next person in line…while Our Lord was being taken to a new crucifixion in unspeakable rituals…literally unspeakable satanic rituals which are as evil as abortion.

Bishops and pastors have not only the right, but the duty to enact everything in Redemptionis Sacramentum overnight without any need for a higher authority.  Why?  Because protection of the Eucharist is Divine Law, not Ecclesial Law. Rome can change Ecclesial Law (and some things in Redemptionis Sacramentum admittedly refer to Ecclesial law.)  Particular Law is what a bishop can change in his diocese. Divine Law and Ecclesial Law trump Particular Law.  Redemptions Sacramentum is mostly the first two since it is a document for the universal Church.

So what is the excuse for ignoring God’s law?  Because no one else is following it.  But this will not exonerate us at the Final Judgement, especially since Rome was so clear after Vatican II, not to mention all the binding documents prior.  Even common sense dictates that we must end this sacrilege against God in the Eucharist, especially if we are to simultaneously beg God to end the scourge of abortion—something only He can do—not the Republican party.

This rejection of God’s holy law is why Bishop Athanasius Schneider has called this the fourth greatest crisis in the history of the Church.  His namesake shows that there is precedent in Church history for global blindness even among the clergy.  The core of every crisis is when priests fear man more than God.  The same is true for this crisis of the 21st century.  The only difference is that we have dubbed our current fear-of-man to be “pastoral charity” instead of “Arianism.”

The specific four instructions that I quote in Redemptionis Sacramentum were given by the Church nearly forty years after Vatican II.  All are to be enacted within the new Mass of the vernacular (i.e. English or Spanish in the USA.)   I can’t stress enough that it was released in 2004, not 1604.  Nor is Redemptionis Sacramentum a frilly tidbit of devotion for more pious priests.  Why do I say this?  Again, the above four quotes are examples of the bare-minimum.

Pastors and bishops can stop 99% of Satanic Masses (and probably reduce the more common sacrilege of people showing up to Mass in 6″ shorts) by enacting Redemptionis Sacramentum, for this document clarifies that it is our duty to eradicate the reception of Holy Communion in the hand in any danger, even in the Mass of Vatican II, for the highest authorities have spoken on this topic: “To touch the Sacred Species with their own hands and to distribute them is a privilege of the Ordained.”—Pope St. John Paul II, Dominicae Cenae.

(The above tenets are all “givens” in the Traditional Latin Mass that you see pictured in the above photo with a priest-friend of mine in front of a Planned Parenthood.   It’s the only Mass I offer now, too.)

We should return to my original topic:  What does obedience to Redemptionis Sacramentum have to do with ending abortion? Read Exodus 25 and Exodus 26.   The chapters contain God’s instructions to Moses regarding Divine Worship.  The Ark and the Tabernacle had to be fabricated exactly as God said—down to the centimeter.  In Exodus 25-26, following the “legalistic rules” of worship does indeed come before social justice.   Hence, in the New Covenant, for “no crime is there heavier punishment to be feared from God than for the unholy or irreligious use [of the Eucharist.]”—Trent.   Redemptionis Sacramentum is a lot easier to follow than the Trent, and yet it’s still being ignored by “conservative” pastors.  If we eschew the minimum of God’s request on worship, how can we ask Him to end abortion?

In fact, any priest or bishop who preaches the hard truths of marriage while not fulfilling the minimum found above in Redemptionis Sacramentum may be the very person Jesus spoke of when He said: “You load people with burdens hard to bear, and you yourselves do not touch the burdens with one of your fingers.”—Luke 11:46.  So-called “conservative” pastors are often the worst culprits in persecuting the few priests and laity who wish to hold to all of Redemptionis Sacramentum.   At least, I have to honor the “progressives” for their consistency:  They don’t hypocritically pretend to fight the Unborn Holocaust or this Liturgical Holocaust.  Some even have genuine zeal for their own pet-projects.

I don’t think we priests can sincerely ask God to end the Unborn Holocaust until we have collectively become obedient to Him in ending this Liturgical Holocaust.  It would cost us little more than short-lived popularity.  Until then, it may be costing unborn babies their lives.
