This video is in response to the claims of the “New Atheism.” One that has been presented by the likes of Sam Harris, Richard Dawkins and the late Christopher Hitchens. One who holds faith is NOT irrational. Science and reason are not incompatible with faith in fact they compliment each other very well because they come from the same source, God. We hope that this video touches the hearts of many people. May God, who is fully alive, bless each viewer.
Thank you to Father Claude Burns and Spirit Juice Studios for defending Truth…
Santorum Launches Patriot Voices to Defeat President Obama and Mobilize One Million Conservatives
JUNE 8, 2012 7:00 a.m.
Patriot Voices is a grassroots and online community of Americans from across the country committed to promoting faith, family, freedom and opportunity in accordance with the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. We believe family is the foundation of a healthy society and a strong economy. We believe in American exceptionalism, entrepreneurship, and personal responsibility. By uniting one million voices, we will transform America’s political landscape.
Chicago, IL – Former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum announced today the launch of a new organization, Patriot Voices, which will mobilize one million conservatives around this country who are committed to promoting faith, family, freedom and opportunity.
As a candidate for President, Rick Santorum earned the support of millions of conservatives and energized countless Americans who felt no one was representing their views. Senator Santorum’s 11-state victory reminded voters that conservative values are alive and well all across America.
Patriot Voices, with the goal of recruiting one million members, is a grassroots and online community of Americans from across the country who stand together to affect change that otherwise could not be accomplished alone.
Former Senator Santorum said, “Patriot Voices is committed to promoting faith, family, freedom and opportunity. We believe that we’re one nation under God and all we do must be consistent with the Declaration of Independence, Constitution and Bill of Rights. We support candidates who share our convictions and hold those accountable that serve us in elected office. The defeat of Barack Obama, and those who support his policies, will be our first priority.”
“Patriot Voices believes that family is the foundation for a healthy society and a strong economy. We believe in freedom and American exceptionalism; entrepreneurship and opportunity; and personal responsibility. We are also a voice for those who often cannot fight for themselves – the unborn, the disabled, the elderly, and those struggling economically in these difficult times,” Santorum continued.
“With a goal of 1 million voices united, Patriot Voices will transform the political landscape of our country, and we will defeat President Obama this November,” Santorum concluded.
Patriot Voices will also work closely with the Red White and Blue fund to offer financial and other political to support candidates who will stand up for conservative values.
Patriot Voices will focus on the following core issue areas:
We stand for the defeat of Barack Obama and those who support his radical agenda. We cannot afford four more years of his disastrous policies.
We stand for healthy families and a healthy economy. We want to expand opportunities for all Americans by advocating policies that encourage traditional marriage, support children and free enterprise. Healthy families help produce a healthy economy.
We stand for freedom and its defenders. We stand with our military and veterans.We stand with Israel and against the threats and values of Radical Islam, and we believe that the Iranian Regime can never obtain nuclear weapons. We believe in a strong national defense including a missile defense system, which give us the ability to defend ourselves and our allies.
We stand for the repeal of Obamacare and other government dependency programs that infringe on our freedoms, including religious freedom. The overreach of government under President Obama will continue to erode the freedoms that our country was founded on if not stopped.
We stand for renewing America as an economic power by protecting our innovative spirit, restarting our manufacturing capabilities and unleashing America’s domestic energy potential through pro-growth tax and regulatory reforms that also strengthen working families, struggling communities, and our national security.
We will always stand up for the most vulnerable among us- the unborn, the disabled, the elderly and the poor. We believe in the dignity of each and every human life and we will support policies that ensure the value of each person.

I will be in my new home town of Madison, Wisconsin at the Stand Up Rally for Religious Freedom. Why?
Simple… If I am to be “Always Catholic” then I must put my money where my mouth is. I started AlwaysCatholicBlog because of challenges in our lives like the forced HHS Mandate. If I am not to stand with Christ and His Church, then I am against it.
Join me and Always Catholic at over 140 locations across the country. Our bishops, finally standing tall are taking to the streets with us. Standupforreligiousfreedom.com is THE SITE for everything connected to the Rally. This is a dedicated group of people who, like ourselves KNOW that the imposed HHS Mandate by HHS Secretary Sebelius is a violation of our First Amendment Right to Freedom of Religion.
This is the fork in the road folks, we both know it. Today the government forces us to comply with a mandate in direct opposition to our beliefs, “tomorrow” we have the 21st century version of the Catacombs.
Think it’s not a possibilty? Hmmmm, I wonder if there were 1st century Catholics who disagreed on that point on their way to their deaths?
I’m just sayin’…
Always Catholic has the honor and privilege of being a member of the Stand Up Coalition and listed on the Stand Up blogroll…
Be Prepared for the OPPOSITION!
HHS Mandate Fact Sheet Now Available
If you attend one of 140 Nationwide Rally for Religious Freedom locations Friday, June 8th, you’re sure to get questions from passersby like, “What are you guys doing here?” and “What is the HHS Mandate, anyway?”
That’s why we’ve prepared an HHS Mandate Fact Sheet [PDF] for organizers to distribute to the general public, which contains FAQ style questions and answers on the HHS Mandate, along with plus some practical action items for continuing the fight.
The Fact Sheet addresses the following questions:
What is the HHS Mandate and how does it violate religious freedom? Isn’t this really all about providing access to contraception? Didn’t President Obama work out these religious objections? What can I do to help stop the HHS Mandate?
We recommend that organizers print enough copies of the Fact Sheet to distribute to everyone who attends a Rally, and enough additional copies to give out to passersby who are interested in learning more about the HHS Mandate and its assault on religious freedom.
As we speak, it is official that my Governor, Scott Walker has beaten the Progressive movement, organized Labor and their agenda here in Wisconsin. Deo Gratias!

Dear Friends and Readers of AlwaysCatholic.com,
First, let me thank all of you who have been praying on my behalf. This last bout with Heart Failure has been the scariest. I am almost ten years past the prognosis of my demise.
I know I am still here because Our Lord has something for me to do, because your prayers storm Heaven everyday and to be honest, I am stubborn.
My recovery this time has taken much longer and this has been the reason for my absence from the blog since Easter. My interns, particularly Emma has kept the blog’s heartbeat alive and Mary, (@AncientSoul on Twitter) has kept our FB AlwaysCatholic fanpage updated daily with her profound posts from her BattleBeads Blog. There aren’t enough words to thank them for this support. I am so grateful for them.
Thank you to @FatherZ,@AncientSoul,@CatholicLisa,(Lisa Graas) @Sr_Lisa and so many more for their patience and their unending prayers, without which I could not come back to blogging.
I am not out of the woods yet but I will be at appointments for my condition Weds, Thurs and Fri of this week with a decision on Fri when I can return to the blog. Please continue to keep me in your prayers so I may be back this weekend.
I am writing a post tonight because today I officially made Wisconsin my home. I moved here last year but spent the better part of the year ill and battling back. This week I knew that sick or not I had to stand for courage during this battle here in Wisconsin for our liberty and freedom.
I managed to pull myself together enough to venture to DMV for my Wisconsin Drivers license and to register to vote and to cast my vote for a man of courage, Governor Scott Walker. In addition, a woman of conviction and courage, Rebecca Kleefisch, our Lt. Governor has battled horrific personal attacks to stand tall for us ‘Sconnies.
I have been welcomed here as if I was born on a dairy farm and never left the state. The people of Wisconsin (99% of them) are faith-filled, bright, hardworking, ethical, sane people who pride themselves on common sense and their kind and generous natures. I have found a home.
Wisconsin also has a very strong Catholic identity which ACBlog will be covering in the near future. AS a resident of Madison, (the center of the firestorm) I am privileged and honored to have Bishop Robert Morlino as my bishop. He is THE GREATEST BISHOP in the United States.
Please know this…it is NOT a coincidence that the only approved apparition site (equal to Fatima, Lourdes, etc.) is just outside Green Bay, Wisconsin.
Congratulations Governor Walker and Lt. Governor Kleefisch, you have now won the Backbone Award for courage.
