Pro-abortion zealots plan to hit Catholic Masses today

 (My new American Thinker post)

For twenty years, I've been an usher at our Catholic parish.  It's been a fun job, from watching babies grow up and go to college to realizing that people generally like sitting in the same place to keeping the doors closed to manage our air-conditioning costs.

Well, politics has met "ushering."  It looks as though churches may be next for the pro-abortion protests.  By the way, I never say "pro-choice" because the millions aborted since 1973 never got to choose anything.

This is the story going around about the protests:

A group known as "Ruth Sent Us," which has a TikTok account with more than 20,000 followers, initially posted a video of a group of women wearing costumes inspired by Margaret Atwood's "The Handmaids Tale" walking into what appears to be the front of a Catholic Church during Mass. 

"For 2,000 years the Catholic Church has been an institution for the enslavement of women," one of the protesters can be heard saying in the video, which calls for protests between May 8 and May 14.

Other activist groups including "Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights," "Pro Choice with Heart," "Strike for Choice" and others are calling for protests between May 8 and May 15. 

Well, at least we know their intentions and what they think of Catholic women on Mother's Day.

Will someone ask President Biden about these groups targeting his church?  Will a reporter ask about the Catholic Church enslaving women?  Is the first lady a slave to her Catholic husband, for example?  I'm also interested in the reaction from Hispanics, since most of them go to Catholic churches, and the women are generally devout.

I will tell you in a future post if any of them got near our church.  My guess is that they will hit the downtown churches closer to the TV station studios.  This is a publicity stunt, after all.

Nevertheless, we've just entered the insanity zone.  Let's hope that no one gets hurt.

A word about May 8

We remember May 8:

VE Day 1945 and the end of the war in Europe:  Remembering V E Day 1945 with Barry Jacobsen.  

May 8, 1884:  Let's talk about Pres to listen.    In 2009, we spoke with Susan Medler and Bill Katz.  Susan is the Director of Communications at the Harry S. Truman Library Institute and Harry S. Truman Library and Museum.  Bill is an author and blogger of Urgent Agenda, one of the most popular political blogs.

Humor man:    We remember Don Rickles who was born in New York City on this day in 1926.    He died in 2017.

Orioles baseball:    We remember Miguel Angel Santana Cuellar today.  Mike was born May 8, 1937 in Las Villas.    During his brilliant career, he won 185 games to go with a 3.14 ERA. He also completed 172 starts!  He died in 2010.

Rangers baseball:    On this day in 2012, Josh Hamilton made history and we got to watch it on TV:    The 16th player to hit 4 HR's in a game.   He did it in Baltimore!

A nice word for the mothers!

Happy Mother's Day | Mothers day cartoon, Happy mother's day funny ...
Check this out:   Rasmussen Reports posted a great poll back in 2009:
"This Mother’s Day, two-out-of-three adults (66%) believe that being a mother is the most important role for a woman to fill.Only 17% disagree and 16% are not sure.Those figures are similar to our survey conducted this time last year."
This is nice.   I'm not sure about the 17% who disagree.  What about the 16% who are not sure? I hope that their mother did not hear how they voted!

Happy Mother's Day!
