Texas Supreme Court overturns Houston “transgender restroom” law July 28, 2015

A little bit of good news, anyway.  The Texas Supreme Court has overturned a Houston ordinance driven by gomorrist Mayor Parker that radically expanded “rights” for those given over to perverse inclinations, including the ability of “transgenders” to use any public restroom they wished.  This ordinance was widely unpopular and resulted in a large recall effort that was dismissed, quite possibly illegally, by the city on a technicality.  That recall effort led to an attempt to persecute Houston area pastors (all protestants – no Catholic pastor helped lead the effort).

At any rate, the Texas Supreme Court has found the ordinance unconstitutional:

In a victory for reason and common sense, the Texas Supreme Court has given the city of Houston 30 days to either repeal it’s ridiculous rules governing public restroom use by the opposite sex or put it on the ballot for voter approval.

The law was intended to make it possible for trans genders to choose whatever bathroom they felt comfortable in using. Opposition to the bill resulted in city officials subpoening the sermons and other documents from 5 local pastors, looking for violations of the equal rights statute. The subpoenas were withdrawn following a nationwide outcry…….. [I really think it was coverage on this blog that did it. Heh]

………The city has until Aug. 24 to act on the court’s order, which also suspended the equal-rights ordinance, raising the possibility of a ballot fight that could sway the outcome of the November mayor’s race. Ms. Parker is term-limited and cannot seek re-election.

The ordinance, approved by the city council in May 2014, added gender identity and sexual orientation to the city’s equal-rights law, touching off a backlash over transgender bathroom use.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott praised the court’s decision Friday, saying that, “Freedom of expression can only exist once government removes itself from stifling free speech, repressing religious liberty and interfering with the lives of its citizens.”

Yeah, well, Abbot’s opinion – not perfect even in itself – is probably in the distinct minority today.  I mean, do we have to discuss all this heavy stuff all the time?  Can’t we just get back to our Whataburger and Kardashians and just let people do what they want?  I mean, really………

Sorry folks that is it for me today.  Regular blogging will resume tomorrow, God willing.

Third sting video released on Planned Barrenhood sale of murdered baby parts July 28, 2015

This is one in depth investigation.  In a new video entitled Human Capital – Episode 1: Planned Parenthood’s Black Market in Baby Parts, the Center for Medical Progress provides even more damning evidence that Planned Barrenhood routinely sells aborted baby parts for profit, something that certainly seems to be illegal under current federal law.

Most of the video below features the testimony of a woman who once worked at a business that purchased aborted baby parts for “research.”  She details the profit motive to Planned Barrenhood and her own personal horror at having to handle and manipulate tiny legs, heads, etc.  She claims both Planned Barrenhood and the company she worked for – just one of many that trade in human flesh – were profit-motivated and sought to maximize income.

The video closes with a chilling segment at a Planned Barrenhood facility where parts from little murdered babies are sorted through, analyzed for their economic value, and discussed like one were discussing cattle parts.  I wonder how many left wing employees at Planned Barrenhood believe “meat is murder” and yet have no problem haggling over the price of the little parts remaining from murdered babies.

No wonder the democrats have totally freaked out and are trying to change the story by investigating the Center for Medical Progress, instead of Damned Barrenhood.  There is absolutely no justification for this traffic in human parts and yet the left wing sexular pagan ethos more or less demands that this kind of thing occur.  There is no horror to which they will not descend in pursuit of their sexular pagan “utopia.”

Really, how far of a step is it, from using aborted baby parts for medical research, from creating babies intentionally for that purpose?  And then what follows after that?

Soylent Green, here we come.

Fort Worth TLM parish juridicially stands up August 1 – UPDATED, details confirmed July 28, 2015

Fort Worth Bishop Michael Olson has announced that the FSSP personal parish of Saint Benedict will be effective as of Saturday, August 1.  It is unknown at this time when formal operation will begin with offering of the Sacraments.  I have no details on that as of yet.  I am not even certain the location of the parish has been announced.  The rumor is the “former” Saint Thomas the Apostle in NW Fort Worth, about halfway between Meacham Airport and Carswell?

The deal regarding Saint Thomas is that they have purchased new land to move the parish, and have plans in place to do so.  So the Fraternity may be taking over this vacating parish?  Not sure how the timing works out.  I’m not sure the new facility for Saint Thomas the Apostle is ready.

If Saint Thomas will become Saint Benedict, FSSP, here’s what it looks like:

st-thomas-theapostle-church-fortworth-tx

st-thomas-apostle-fort-worth

I couldn’t find any clear shots of the interior, but there are stained glass windows along the side.  I don’t know if the church itself will require modifications to make it suitable for the TLM.

I suppose I should shut up and wait for the forma announcement?  Seems like they are cutting things pretty close before doing so, given that the parish stands up, officially, this Saturday.

Formal act of creation here.

UPDATE: A lot more from North Texas Catholic, the official news organ of the Diocese of Fort Worth:

Two priests from Fraternity of St. Peter will pastor new St. Benedict Parish// //

The parish will celebrate weekly Mass at 5:30 p.m. in the Extraordinary Form at St. Mary of the Assumption Church, 509 W. Magnolia Ave., on the near South Side of Fort Worth. [OK, Sunday Mass stays at St. Mary’s for now] Two priests from the Fraternity of St. Peter will lead the church community. Father Karl Pikus, FSSP, has been appointed pastor of the new parish, effective July 23. Father Peter Bryne, FSSP, whose appointment becomes effective August 10, will serve as parochial vicar.

Daily Mass will be celebrated on the campus of St. Thomas the Apostle Parish, 2920 Azle Ave., at a time yet to be announced. St. Thomas Church is located in Northwest Fort Worth. The new St. Benedict Parish will also have its offices on the property of St. Thomas Parish until St. Thomas completes the building of its new church just north of Loop 820. [What I presumed is confirmed.  Still no date of beginning the new Mass, nor times]

The name for the new parish was chosen by Bishop Olson after consulting members of the community already celebrating the Latin Mass at St. Mary of the Assumption Parish.
