Vatican E.T. Not content with being restricted to spreading their damnable false gospel on earth, the Vatican is now looking to the sky.

Four hundred years after it locked up Galileo for challenging the view that the Earth was the center of the universe, the Vatican has called in experts to study the possibility of extraterrestrial alien life and its implication for the Catholic Church.

“The questions of life’s origins and of whether life exists elsewhere in the universe are very suitable and deserve serious consideration,” said the Rev. Jose Gabriel Funes, an astronomer and director of the Vatican Observatory.

Funes, a Jesuit priest, presented the results Tuesday of a five-day conference that gathered astronomers, physicists, biologists and other experts to discuss the budding field of astrobiology — the study of the origin of life and its existence elsewhere in the cosmos.

Today top clergy, including Funes, openly endorse scientific ideas like the Big Bang theory as a reasonable explanation for the creation of the universe. The theory says the universe began billions of years ago in the explosion of a single, super-dense point that contained all matter.

Earlier this year, the Vatican also sponsored a conference on evolution to mark the 150th anniversary of Charles Darwin’s “The Origin of Species.”

The event snubbed proponents of alternative theories, like creationism and intelligent design, which see a higher being rather than the undirected process of natural selection behind the evolution of species.

A W PinkThe single foundation of a sinner’s hope is the merits of Christ, His finished work of redemption. Those who would add to the same by any doings of their own are headed for eternal destruction. Therefore any who teach men to do so are cursed of God and should be abhorred by His people.

Planned Parenthood’s abortion quotas exposed.

Planned Parenthood, the organization that kills babies for profit, is having more of its evil deeds brought into the light thanks to one woman who is not afraid to speak the truth. This woman is Abby Johnson, a former clinic director for the Texas Planned Parenthood branch. A woman who, after watching an ultrasound-guided abortion, courageously walked away from the murder mill (gives us hope to continue to pray for others).

Now, she is causing more of a stir by revealing Planned Parenthood’s abortion quotas. Yup, you read that correctly, quotas. Quotas where the murdering of helpless babies is tallied and forecast in heartless indifference like a company might do with their inventory. One can almost hear the directors telling their employees, “It’s just business boys and girls; we are behind our quota this month so get to it and round us up some more pregnant ladies so we can slaughter a few more babies and make the numbers.”

Although my quote is speculative sarcasm, the truth of the matter according to Abby in a WorldNetDaily article titled, “Planned Parenthood’s abortion quotas exposed”, is that,

There are definitely client goals,” former clinic director Abby Johnson said. “We’d have a goal every month for abortion clients and for family planning clients. 1

Later on, in the same article, Abby goes on to reveal that,

Abortion is the most lucrative part of Planned Parenthood’s operations,” she said. “Even though they’re two separate corporations, all of the money goes into one pot. With the family planning corporation really suffering, they depend on the abortion corporation to balance their budget, help get them out of the hole and help make income for the company. 2

As one can imagine Planned Parenthood is in an uproar about Abby Johnson exposing their darkness. To read the rest of the story, you can find the article here.
