Film Shows Conservative Women Give Feminism More Than It Bargained For

October 4, 2010

By Krista West
Culture and Media Institute

In a culture that consistently attacks traditional values, these women refuse to sit by quietly and let morality slip through our nation’s fingertips.

Citizens United’s newest film, “Fire From The Heartland,” recognizes conservative women throughout history as the “backbone of this great nation.” The film features commentary from several key activists and politicians including Ann Coulter, S.E. Cupp, Dana Loesch, Phyllis Schlafly and Congresswoman Michele Bachmann. The film tells the story of their struggles and victories of these “self-made American women,” how have sparked a movement and have come to be considered “[T]he unintended consequence of the liberal feminist movement.”

The film focuses on the ways that young conservative women are changing the conservative movement and redefining “politics as usual.” One area that they pinpoint as needing attention is reversing the moral compromise of traditional Christian values mobilized by the liberal media.

One commentator, S.E. Cupp, author of ‘Losing Our Religion: The Liberal Media’s Attack on Christianity,’ explains, “The liberal media, outlets like The New York Times, MSNBC or the Washington Post are actively trying to tell you that the Judeo-Christian values that this country was founded on no longer matter. They are no longer relevant. And they’re lying to you. That’s a lie.”

Cupp also notes, “In a country that’s 80 percent Christian, Christianity has become this sort of rebellious sub-culture because Hollywood hates it. The liberal media hates it. The political left hates it.”

Why all this hate for traditional Christian values? Dana Loesch, conservative radio host, observes, “It seems as though this society is trying to drum Christianity out of the culture. There’s a reason for that. Because if you succeed in doing that you succeed in undermining the entire constitution of the United States. Thus you have your doorway to make men, women in America enslaved to the government.” Ann Coulter, political activist and author, agrees with Loesch. Coulter states, “People do pick up so much through the cultural influence and yet America has really resisted. And the left has got to break that down. It’s got to break down the attachments to family. It’s got to break down attachments to church. You must only have one attachment and that is to big brother.”

Cupp explains, “Liberalism lives in a world of moral relativism where bad behavior is easily explained and dismissed. Meat is murder but abortion is justified. Capitalism is the evil boogeyman but don’t take away my private jet! Christianity is crazy except when it helps get my guy elected.” The left treats morality as a political bargaining chip and the media denounces traditional values at every opportunity.

Catch Up Wednesday of the Radiothon

September 8, 2010

From Dave Palmer with GRN:

We wish a very Happy Birthday to our Blessed Mother Mary today!

Thanks to the 127 of you who called in yesterday during the first day of our Fall Radiothon to help support Catholic Radio in North Texas.  The donations yesterday totaled $44,279. While this sounds like a big number, we were $10,000 off our totals from the first day of the Spring Radiothon. Calls yesterday were off by about 50 compared to the first day of the Spring Radiothon.

All this means that we have some catching up to do today for the second day of the Radiothon.  We’re hoping to have a better day today so that we can make up some of the lost ground from yesterday.

If you have not already done so, please call 800-476-3311 today to make as big a donation as possible to help keep the Voice of Truth on the air across North Texas.

And finally and most importantly, please pray for us today. Ask Our Lady on her birthday to interceded for us and inspire many to call in to support the Radiothon.

We are very grateful for your support.  KATH 910 AM is totally listener-supported and can only remain on the air with the support of our listeners.

God bless you and your family,

Dave Palmer

Building A Bridge Through Song And Community

June 1, 2010

MetroCatholic — The Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity gratefully share five special free song downloads this June as part of their “Bridge Radio” at the Franciscanized World

Enjoy a sample of writers and artists who volunteer their time, energy and creativity with proceeds and royalties donated to the Steel Bridge Fund held by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The campaign to save the Steel Bridge in Door County, WI has become a large- scale musical event, inspiring artists and revitalizing a community in the process.

The June songs, originate from songwriting sessions at the annual Steel Bridge Songfest. St. Francis would feel at home in this event that builds even deeper bridges of the heart and spirit. Featured artists and songs include:

“Leavin’ It All Behind” by Todd Carey and Freedy Johnston, “Build Us A Bridge” by Kim Manning and Landon Capelle, “The Real Deal” by Tom Schriner- Schmitt, “There is An Answer” by James Hall, “He Walked on The Water” by Mo Rose.

About to “Build Us A Bridge”, singer-songwriter Kim Manning reflected “This song is about how we are all connected, everyone, and that by recognizing and honoring that connection we can rest assured that we are never alone, and that we can all grow strong, healthy, happy and holy…”

“We want to present our life as a viable option. Personal invitation is always best; however, we became convinced that real conversations can begin by using the language of images and music.” said Sr. Julie Ann Sheahan, OSF, Directress of Vocations for the Franciscan order.

Established in 1869, the Roman Catholic Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity serve in Catholic health care, education and parish ministries in twelve dioceses throughout the United States.

“My first Bishop’s Dinner was my defining moment”?

March 25, 2010

From the CPLC:

Register today for The Bishop’s 17th Annual Catholic Pro-Life Dinner, on April 10, at the Hilton Anatole Dallas, featuring keynote speaker Daniel Cardinal DiNardo and former Planned Parenthood director Abby Johnson! 

Here’s what a few friends have to say about this not-to-be-missed event:

  Bereit.jpg“In the spring of 2004, I attended my first Bishop’s Dinner in Dallas while working for the Coalition for Life, a small pro-life ministry in College Station.  As I walked into the banquet facility that night, I was surrounded by the largest crowd of pro-life volunteers and supporters I had ever seen assembled in one room.  During the program, I learned about the enormous life-saving impact of the Catholic Pro-Life Committee, and instantly realized that I wasn’t thinking nearly big enough.  I went home inspired to do more than ever before.  

                            … Since that time 40 Days for Life has spread like wildfire to 307 cities across all 50 states and seven other countries.  … I would never have imagined that possible – until I attended the Bishop’s Dinner in Dallas.   At that life-changing event, my vision was expanded to realize it’s not a matter of ‘if’ abortion ends - it’s a matter of ‘WHEN.’  Do not miss this year’s Bishop’s Dinner in Dallas.  You will be filled with hope, and maybe - like me - your life will be forever changed!”

- David Bereit,
   National Director, 40 Days for Life

 “… Your banquet remains the single most impressive and moving pro-life event I’ve ever attended… May God continue to bless your efforts as you deserve.”

- Michael Medved, author and radio show host,
   2006 Bishop’s Dinner Keynote Speaker



  Moreland_3.jpg“My first Bishop’s Dinner could be summed up into three words: my defining moment.  What started as a spark that evening of ‘Oh, I really need to get involved and help’ rolled fiercely into a ball of fire that even I cannot control. While I understand not everyone’s calling may be pro-life work, I can assure you that if you have never been to the Bishop’s Dinner, you will be awakened to the truth on that fun-filled evening!”

- Ronda Moreland, Parish Pro-Life Coordinator,
St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church, 2010 Bishop’s Dinner Honoree



Clark.jpg“In the Spring of 1996 I was the Grand Knight of Council 10646 in Rowlett. During a meeting one of the Knights suggested that the Council pay for me and my wife to attend the Bishop’s Pro-Life Dinner as their representative.  I was overjoyed to think that not only was I going to represent my Brother Knights, but I was going to get fed doing it….Then IT happened.  A young mom was introduced who was holding a baby about six months of age. This mom was going into an abortion clinic to abort that very child, but was intercepted by a sidewalk counselor. As she stood up there and bravely told her story, a thousand different thoughts and feelings overwhelmed me. Watching her cry and say that her baby, that she was about to kill months prior, was her greatest gift, caused me to become a true pro-life advocate… it changed my life forever.

“Today I am the State Pro-Life Chairman for the Texas Knights of Columbus and I am the President of Hike for Life, Texas’ oldest pro-life event.”

- Tom Clark, Texas Pro-Life Chairman,
   Knights of Columbus; President of Hike for Life, Inc.

USCCB Commends Advance Of Community Radio Act

October 9, 2009

WASHINGTON DC (MetroCatholic) - The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) commends the House Subcommittee on Communications, Technology and the Internet for marking up H.R. 1147, the Community Radio Act of 2009, and moving this important bill forward.
H.R. 1147 will create hundreds of new low power radio stations. These small radio stations offer Catholic programmers and Catholic dioceses and parishes (including the institutions they support, such as schools, health care entities, community development projects and refugee resettlement programs) a practical method of reaching their community with information and discussion of local issues. 
“Creating more low power FM radio stations will offer a place for non-commercial religious programming and public service announcements, which face an uphill struggle for airtime on commercial full-power radio and television stations,” stated Helen Osman, Secretary of Communications for the USCCB. “H.R. 1147 is a valuable opportunity for Congress to offer a platform for religious organizations, schools and community organizations to serve their communities with local radio programming.”
The USCCB has supported the widest deployment of the low power FM service possible since its inception more than a decade ago.

Dave Palmer of GRN

North Texas (MetroCatholic) - The Radiothon at Guadalupe Radio Network begins today.  Here’s the latest from Dave Palmer:


‘and the truth is passed on by the small, fervent band of the few. Not by the many but by the dauntless, resolute, dedicated few.’

The quote above by the late John Henry Cardinal Newman I believe best explains the value of Catholic Radio. If Catholic Radio doesn’t pass on the Truth of the Catholic faith, then who on the radio will?
Tuesday morning, March 2nd at 8am we will begin a four day Radiothon on KATH 910 AM with the theme of ‘Light of the World.’  If you agree that having the voice of Catholicism on  the radio in North Texas is important during these difficult times, I humbly ask you to do two things on Tuesday.
1. Please call the Radiothon at 1-800-476-3311 between 8am-7pm to make your own donation. A sacrificial donation of any size is very important and we really appreciate it.
2. Please forward this (information) to everyone on your email list asking them to make a pledge today to keep Catholic Radio on the air in North Texas.
3. And finally, and most importantly, please pray for the the success of the Radiothon and pray that we will always be faithful to our mission of leading others to Christ through His Church. 
We really appreciate your prayerful and financial support of Catholic Radio. 

May God bless you and your family today,
