The occasional, often ill-considered thoughts of a Roman Catholic permanent deacon who is ever grateful to God for his existence. Despite the strangeness we encounter in this life, all the suffering we witness and endure, being is good, so good I am sometimes unable to contain my joy. Deo gratias!

The thoughts expressed here are my personal thoughts and sometimes reflect my political views. As a private citizen I have every right to express these views.

White House Agenda

President Obama's official website, http://www.whitehouse.gov/, already lists a comprehensive agenda that our new president hopes to enact during his term in office. For those of you who might have doubted his support for abortion, gay-lesbian rights, embryonic stem cell research, and other similar issues, I suggest you go directly to the website and read exactly what his agenda includes:

For women's issues, including abortion and embryonic stem cell research, click here: http://www.whitehouse.gov/agenda/women/

LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered) issues are listed under "civil rights" and can be found here: http://www.whitehouse.gov/agenda/civil_rights/

And if you would like to read the text of President Obama's statement regarding his decision to rescind the previous executive order prohibiting government support for international agencies that promote abortion, click here.

  1. Does it not betray something about the real agenda that embryonic stem cell research is listed as a "women's issue" and not as a "health issue"?
