McClure Decides Against Dally's Seat?

I've been informed that, contrary to what has been commonly thought, Northampton County Council member Lamont McClure has decided against seeking the state house seat recently held by Judge Criag Dally. In this right-leaning district, Dems are understandably cautious.

On the Republican side, Dally office manager Marcia Hahn, Wind Gap Attorney Nick Sabatine and some retired military man are all testing the waters.

Darn it. I was so looking forward to voting against him.

Not So Casual, Thanks for the name. I had heard, but could not remember, his name.

I am disappointed to see the last bastion of no moderation of comments has fallen. Villa must be celebrating in his basement.

From time to time, I temporarily enable comment moderation, usually whn I am undergoing a troll attack, so I can take out the garbage. On a weekend, when most of us like to relax, the trolls get very busy.

Let me know if you are still coming to the Pro-Life March. The march is on January 22, about 1 PM'ish, at The National Mall in D.C. The Pro-Life vigil is on January 21, at The Basilica. It can also be viewed on EWTN, live on Thursday night at 6:30 PM.

So to all of you out there, look for me on the television. I will be one of the first few brothers during the procession to the altar. And I will be wearing all black vestments.

Peace, ~~Alex

Thank you, but I have a long way to go to even untie the sandals that Mother Theresa wore.

It is not only about babies, but all life. I pray that no one even has to decide whether or not to terminate me when I get old and forgotten about.

How many people made an important impact in this world, that would have fit your requirements to be euthanized? With that said, you may have killed Beethoven or Jesus.

But I wouldn't call myself an extremist. I won't be one of those in the march carrying a poster of an aborted fetus. I will be just taking in the sights of thousand of people (of all ages, races, religions, and non-believers) peacefully gathering and demonstrating together.

I just happen to love and value life. I even cherish the life of anonymous bloggers that can't spell and make vast and unlogical generalizations, unlike yourself or your astute opinions, of course.

Peace be with you, ~~Alex

The USCCB printed some literature a few years ago regarding how to vote with a Catholic faith. When I find it, I will provide a link to it, here. But in its summary, it suggests weighing a candidate's overall preception. Voting your conscience is not easy. Sometimes, your have to chose between the lesser of the two or three. Such as, choosing between sending people to war to fight and possibly die in the name of freedom, abortions, healthcare, education, stem cell research, termination of the ill, and etc.

How I choose to vote is a private matter and shouldn't influence you in such a way. You have to make your own decision in respect to your own conscience, religion, faith, issues, and/or whatever you hold close to your heart. Free will is tough sometimes. It wasn't meant to be easy.

If you want to email me; so you can talk privately, feel free to do so.

Hope that helps? And when I find the link, I will post it here; with Bernie's permission, of course.

Peace be with you, ~~Alex

This one is very handy and makes the point better than I can illustrate it:


The topic that a blogger had a question with is in the middle of this document. But the whole work is a very good read.

And this website is geared towards many pressing questions for a Catholic regarding our faithfulness as U.S. citizens:


Peace, ~~Alex

Fr. Alex, You need not respond to any trollish remarks. They will be taken out with the garbage.

Would have been fun to watch him waste money.

Why would the Republicans want to run a candidate such as Nick Sabatine that runs and loses elections like Rick Orloski?

If the GOP chooses him, I would say a "win" for the Democrats with the right candidate.
