Despite knowing God, they refused to honor him as God or give thanks to him. As a result, their speculations became foolish and their uncomprehending hearts became darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, in reality they became fools— Rom 1:21-22 (NCB)
WASHINGTON D.C., USA (CR News) — a recent review of literature highlighting current events reveals that a staggering number of elected officials continue to cling to a decades-old myth that babies growing in their mother’s womb are not actually alive. We sent a crew from CR News to Washington recently to uncover what’s behind the lore that whatever goes on in a pregnant mother’s womb has nothing to do with life.
As fate would have it, the first person we encountered in the nation’s Capital was Rep. Nancy Patrocity. Patrocity, a self-proclaimed Catholic, is a leading advocate in support of aborting the little ones. Her home state actually permits the killing of babies right up to the time they try to crawl out of their mother’s womb on their own power.
Rep. Patrocity seemed surprised, at first, when she saw us. She raised her hand, as if to protect herself from a bright light, turning away for a moment until she composed herself.
“The reason we have so much division in our country is people like you,” she said angrily. “You just need to let women do what they want with their bodies. It’s none of your business.”
“Many say we have so much division because we’re systematically killing more human beings in America now than the Nazis killed in German prison camps during World War II,” we replied
“Oh, shut up!” Patrocity told us. “You don’t know anything. You’re just stupid, little people!”
“How do you reply to the argument that the arms and legs and heart and heads that the doctors dispose of after an abortion are NOT the woman’s? She still has hers. Her body was not killed,” we asked.
“You’re a mean person!’ the representative snarled. ”What news group are you with?” she asked.
“Catholic Roads News,” we replied.
“Catholics! You claim to be Catholics! You are an embarrassment!” she continued. “Your bishop shouldn’t allow people like you to receive communion,” apparently referring to her own bishop, who declared that Rep. Patrocity was in a state of grave sin and should not receive the Holy Eucharist until she repents.
“Are you going to answer our question?” we asked.
“Of course, not. You don’t know the truth,” she replied.
Representative Patrocity walked away from us swiftly, almost falling off of her high heel shoes twice as she fled.
That’s our story, and we’re sticking to it!
It’s cool to be Catholic. COOL2B!

It is amazing the levels of knowledge humanity has acquired and the absolute denial of that knowledge in the face of truth because it doesn’t fit our selfish interests.
The older I get, the more I realize the great chasm that can exist between knowledge and wisdom. All the “book learning” in the world, in itself, is not a substitute for wisdom.
Wisdom grows as we try to live a life of personal truth.
Yes indeed, brother! The Bible tells us that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of all wisdom (Prov 9:10). Wisdom comes from the Lord.
