Another Meme!

Hurray! I have been tagged by Lady Rose; thank you darling!

A) Link to the person who tagged you,
B) List the rules,
C) Write six random things about yourself,
D) Tag six-ish people by leaving comments on their blogs and let the person who tagged you know that you've written the post.

1) I have ultra thick hair! Seriously, everyone I have talked to says they have never felt or seen hair thicker than mine. Although, it is a bit of a pain at times because I can't put it up in clips because it is sooo thick. *pouts* I got my mom's genes in reverse; Mom has fine, thin hair and thick hard nails, I have super thick hair and flabby thin nails. Odd, huh?

2) I can wiggle my bottom eyelids. I'm not kidding. Yeah, I know it's weird and that most people wiggle their ears, but I can do it.

3) I have an Internet sister that lives in Illinois and is my pirate partner. I only see her once a year (except this year I saw her several times). Love you Amanda!

4) I have taken 2 years of piano and my 13 year old brother (who has never taken any lessons) can pick up music on the piano and play it within a few minutes.....and I can't! He even composes his own songs, and they are really good!

5) I used to pronounce Arkansas as Ar-Kansas and Canadians as Can-a (short vowel sound)-dians.

6) Last one......*drum roll*......I am married to King Caspian X of Narnia! Yup, on the Fairy Tale Novels forum I was recently married to Caspian. *sighs* What a guy. :) Other girls on there are married to fictional characters and boy do we have fun! Currently I am tied to a chair next to my husband, and unconscious from a punch our pirate captor gave me! Cool, huh?!

So that is my list of random...things. *smile*

I tag: Elena, Grace, Claire, and Erin


I received this email from a friend I thought it was worth looking into too:

This will make you re-think: A Trivia question in Sunday school: How long is the beast allowed to have authority in Revelation?

Revelation Chapter 13 tells us it is 42 months, and you know what that is......Almost a four-year term of a Presidency!!!! All I can say is 'Lord, Have mercy on us!' According to The Book of Revelation the anti-Christ will be a man, in his 40's, of MUSLIM descent, who will deceive the nations with persuasive language, and have a MASSIVE Christ-like appeal....the prophecy says that people will flock to him and he will promise false hope and world peace, and when he is in power, will destroy everything. Do we recognize this description?? I STRONGLY URGE each one of you to post this as many times as you can! Each opportunity that you have to send it to a friend or Media outlet. Do it! I refuse to take a chance on this unknown candidate who came out of nowhere.
From: Dr. John Tisdale
As I was listening to a news program last night, I watched in horror as Barack Obama made the statement with pride. . .'we are no longer a Christian nation; we are now a nation of Christians, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, . . .' As with so many other statements I've heard him (and his wife) make, I never thought I'd see the day that I'd hear something like that from a presidential candidate in this nation. To think our forefathers fought and died for the right for our nation to be a Christian nation-and to have this man say with pride that we are no longer that. How far this nation has come from what our founding fathers intended it to be. I hope that each of you will do what I'm doing now--send your concerns, written simply and sincerely, to the Christians on your email list. With God's help and He is still in control of this nation and all else, we can show this man and the world in November that we are, indeed, still a Christian nation! Please pray for our nation!

I am not responsible for the content of this email or its correctness. (I am not even sure if that is what I am supposed to put, but you get the idea. *grin*)

Protest now and protect Our Lord's Image!

Dear Readers:

I regret to inform you that the blasphemous play Corpus Christi is showing at the Rattlestick Theater in New York – because the play depicts Our Lord and the apostles as homosexuals!
Send your instant e-protest message NOW.
According to the press report Corpus Christi includes a Christ-like figure who has homosexual relations with his apostles! Besides, the play uses Gospel passages in a contrived way. The New York Post, for example, reported:
"'Art Thou King of the queers?' McNally's Pontius Pilate character asks. 'Thou sayest,' Joshua answers."
This is unacceptable!
Defend Jesus' honor by peacefully, but loudly raising your voice against this blasphemy. And please offer prayers and sacrifices in reparation.
GO here to send your e-protest message NOW.
Thank you!
Robert Ritchie

Youtube Update!

Dear Readers:

36,994 petitions…1,873 holy hours…thousands of rosaries, letters, calls and faxes…YouTube still will NOT pull the 43 Holy Eucharist desecration videos from its site.
But the reaction is going global and we won't give up. Protestors from countries like Poland, Germany, Brazil, Australia, Britain, Canada and Russia are joining.
So I'm taking advantage of the growing outrage to triple our push to get the videos removed. And here's what I ask you to do:
Send a NEW petition message via email to Mr. Eric Schmidt, CEO and chairman of Google. Google owns YouTube and their motto is: "Don't be evil."
So please tell YouTube to put an end to this sacrilegious evil.
Send them a petition NOW.
Thank you and please pass on this message to friends and family.

Youtube Protest Update

"28,692 people have petitioned YouTube to pull the Host Desecration from its site. But they refuse to comply.


Just yesterday, YouTube removed a video called "Welcome to Saudi Britain" which asks viewers to petition the British government NOT to accept Sharia (Islam) law in Britain.

Contradiction -- YouTube removes an anti-Islam video, but keeps 43 videos showing desecration of the Holy Eucharist in horrible ways -- one was flushed down the toilet!

What should we do in response?

Well, besides expanding our YouTube protest, it’s time to appeal to a higher court: to God in the Blessed Sacrament of the Altar.

That's why I'm doing an act of reparation in front of the Blessed Sacrament.

Will you join me?

The intention is to do reparation for the 43 desecration on YouTube, for all sacrilege against the Holy Eucharist, and for whatever intentions are in your heart.

Thank you for praying with me, and please continue countering the desecration videos on YouTube by seeing the action items below.


Robert E. Ritchie

Go here to let me know that you will offer reparation in front of the Blessed Sacrament for the 43 desecration videos on YouTube. And I’ll keep you posted.

* * *

Four point action plan to protest the Host desecration videos on YouTube:

1) Go to user fsmdude (person who posted the videos) YouTube channel and flag all his videos. Right under the video window is the link to FLAG. Next choose “hateful or Abusive Content.” Next Choose the sub-section – “promotes hatred or violence.”

Next choose “Religion” as the “group attacked.” Next type in your specific reason, such as "he is desecrating what Catholics hold sacred. YouTube just removed an anti-Sharia video, so why the double standard?”

2) Call YouTube (Google owns YouTube). Dial 650-253-0000, then press 0 for a live person. Tell them, in polite yet firm terms, how upset you are with the 43 desecration videos posted by user fsmdude. Ask them to remove his videos and pledge never to allow such videos again.

3) Send a fax to YouTube/Google 650-253-0001 telling them, in polite yet firm terms, how upset you are with the 43 desecration videos posted by user fsmdude. Ask them to remove his videos and pledge never to allow such videos again.

4) Pass on this 4 point action plan to all your friends and family members. In numbers there is strength. "

This is was sent to my family and I implore you to read this ans take part in it!

Dear readers,
8,201 people in 7 days have respectfully asked YouTube to remove videos that show the Holy Eucharist being desecrated, including one being flushed down a toilet.

I strongly believe these videos violate YouTube's hate policies. They are sacrilegious and demeaning to God, to Catholics and to the Roman Catholic faith. At first, it seemed YouTube heard us. The videos were pulled yesterday morning. However, by the afternoon, the videos were back! That's why we're turning our petition into a protest!

Click the first link on the page.
here to go to the website.

Please go here to send your NEW protest message to YouTube. By YouTube seemingly resolved to give a platform to these host desecration videos, many Catholics will reasonably conclude they agree with these videos deep anti-Catholic bias. After all, it seems that YouTube has removed videos with content offensive to Jews and Muslims.

For example, a video showing a teenager urinating on the Holocaust memorial was pulled. So was the trailer to a Dutch documentary that claims that Islam inspires intolerance, murder and terror.

But videos with the Holy Eucharist being desecrated seem to be OK. In my opinion, this is a double standard. I know you will not accept this. And that is why I ask you to send your NEW protest message to YouTube.

As I said, our petition has spread like wildfire, 18,201 people have signed on in just 7 days. Other Catholic sites and groups have joined us, which reminds me of the protest we did against e-Bay auctioning consecrated hosts online. We won that one! E-bay changed its policy and no longer facilitates the sale of consecrated hosts.

This victory spurs me to action, to reach out to millions more Catholics out of the one billion Catholics worldwide. Ultimately, I hope 100,000 people sign this new protest message to YouTube.

Will you help do it by passing on this message to your friends and family?
