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!

Bill Clinton: Father of the Year?

Boy, it just doesn't get much weirder than this. Former President Bill Clinton who, along with his wife, is an avid supporter of so-called abortion "rights" -- i.e., This wonderful and much admired couple are all in favor of the massive killing of unborn children -- has been named "Father of the Year" by the National Father's Day Committee.

That's right, our former president, who is also an unapologetic serial adulterer, will receive this award at a luncheon in June because of his “profound generosity, leadership and tireless dedication to both his public office and many philanthropic organizations." [Read more here.] It would seem the committee overlooked some of his less than charitable deeds performed in his public office, specifically the one in the White House.

And, yes, I know we should love the sinner and hate the sin. Indeed, I pray for the former president and all our political leaders daily; but loving the sinner doesn't include praising him for his sins. And this is exactly what this committee has done. At some point we must step forward and speak the truth. Awarding him Father of the Year is akin to awarding Bernie Madoff Philanthropist of the Year.

And some doubt the direction in which our nation is headed.

Pray for our country.
