850 Rabbis Demand Disqualification of Justices Kagan and Ginsberg in Upcoming Supreme Court ‘Marriage’ Case

supreme_courtWASHINGTON, April 25, 2015 /Christian Newswire/ — Rabbi Yehuda Levin, Torah values spokesman for the 75 year old, 850 members Rabbinical Alliance of America stated:

We join many other who are appalled and deeply ashamed that less than a week before the Supreme Court hearing on same gender “Marriage,” Justices Ginsberg and Kagan, both of whom have officiated at such events, have nevertheless still not had the grace, or decency to adhere to the US code which calls upon a justice to “Disqualify himself in any proceeding in which his impartiality might reasonably be questioned.”

Therefore we call upon Chief Justice Roberts, President Obama and the House and Senate Judiciary committees to speak out and take the necessary steps to disqualify Kagan and Ginsberg from participating in these proceedings.

Furthermore we invite the leadership of all religious denominations including but not limited to the National Conference of Catholic Bishops, the Southern Baptist Convention, as well as African America, Latino and Muslim religious organizations to join our demand that simple justice requires these two pro same-gender “Marriage” activist justices be disqualified before the case is heard.

We express our fervent hope and prayer that the lawyers who will be representing the traditional view of marriage will have the courage and conviction to demand that the justices be disqualified if they are still seated as the hearing begins.

We ask all Presidential candidates, Democrats and Republicans from Secretary Hillary Clinton to Governor Scott Walker and everyone in between, regardless of their viewpoint on the marriage issue, to vocally advocate that to insure the integrity and impartiality of our highest court, Justices Ginsberg and Kagan must be disqualified.

It’s an issue of simple fairness.

Finally we question why an “impartial” media that queries Republicans as to whether they would attend a same gender “Marriage” does not question any and all of the above mentioned politicians, judicial and religious leaders including justice Kagan and Ginsberg themselves as to why these two should not be disqualified.

A delegation of Rabbis will be available for press interviews outside the Supreme Court Tuesday Morning.

Santorum comments on 100th anniversary of genocide against the Armenian people

rick_santorum_officialVERONA, PA – Former Republican presidential candidate, U.S. Senator, and Chairman of Patriot Voices Rick Santorum issued the following statement to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the genocide against he Armenian people upon the breakup of the Ottoman Empire.

Rick Santorum said: “The massacre of over one million people is a genocide the world must remember. Memorializing this senseless slaughter must be a reminder to us that we cannot tolerate nor can we ignore atrocities in the World today. Anniversaries like this solemn one must be used for good, to identify evil when it emerges, and support and defend those around the Globe who face violence at their door. Today we should all stand with Armenia and Armenians everywhere.”

Do Non-Catholics Go To Hell?

Michael Voris tackles the question: Do Non-Catholics Go To Hell?

The ultimate point he makes is this.

It is much more difficult to be saved if you are not a Catholic with access to the sacraments to restore you to and keep you in a state of grace. Faithful sacrament-frequenting Catholics are much more likely to be saved than anyone else because such a man is much more likely to die in a state of grace—which is necessary to be saved.

True, but…it is well-catechized Catholics who are most in danger of committing mortal sin (a sin that leads to death) because a condition of sin being mortal is that one knows the sin being committed is grave matter and one commits the sin anyway. If I, a faithful Catholic, commit a sin of grave matter then I am more culpable than a non-Catholic who does not know/understand that the sin being committed is grave matter.

So, while it is much more difficult to be saved if you are not a Catholic, it is also also more likely that your grave sin is a mortal sin if you are Catholic.

Luke 12:48 –

 But he who did not know, and did what deserved a beating, shall receive a light beating. Every one to whom much is given, of him will much be required; and of him to whom men commit much they will demand the more.

No one enters heaven without baptism, whether by water, by desire, or by fire. Hell is chosen as a matter of free will, therefore we believe that there may be states after death that are neither heaven nor hell. We entrust to the mercy of God those souls who have died without baptism, through no fault of their own.

It is baptism which makes one a member of the one and only Church. See more about baptism in the catechism.
