As widely predicted, the national elections in Austria have resulted in a victory for the conservative Austrian People’s Party, led by telegenic 31-yr old youngster Sebastian Kern, and the populist Freedomite Party lead by Heinz-Christian Strache, who now looks set to become the king-maker. The Socialists, lead by outgoing Chancellor Christian Kern must be considered the losers of this election, given that they very likely will not lead the next government – but even they have in fact won a tiny increase in electoral support.
The one political group that has lost spectacularly is the Greens, lead by the European Parliament’s former Vice-President and LGBT-frontwoman Ulrike Lunacek: they went down from 12.8% to 3.8%, which means that they have fallen below the threshold that entitles them to be represented in Parliament.

Interesting statement by Neil Datta, who, due to his function as Secretary of the European Parliamentary Forum on Population & Development must be considered the international baby-killing industry’s chief lobbyist in the EU. Speaking at a conference entitled “Où est l’argent pour les droits sexuels et reproductifs ?” (Where is the money for sexual and reproductive Rights) in Paris on 20 September, he bitterly complained that the abortion lobby, despite the massive support it gets from governmental authorities and mass media, would never be able to mobilize as many supporters as the pro-life movement does.
In particular, Datta referred to the successful European Citizens’ Initiative “One of Us”, which collected more than 1.7 million signatures in support for a request to the European Commission to fully recognize the dignity of the human embryo and provide adequate legal protections.

A Satanist group in the United States has announced plans to use so-called anti-discrimination laws to force Christian bakers to bake cakes that glorify Satanism.
It appears that this newest attempt to harass Christians is a reaction to the Masterpiece Cakeshop case soon to be considered by the U.S. Supreme Court, in which a brave baker resists the pressure of fanatical LGBT activists who want him to bake a cake for a same-sex “wedding”. As the group says, “because sexual orientation is not a protected class under the Civil Rights Act of 1964, (whereas race and religion are), there is a good chance that the right to discriminate against gay couples will be affirmed as a constitutional liberty.”
And further: “Because religion is a protected class, a baker may refuse service to LGBTQ people, but they may not refuse service based upon someone’s religion. If they aren’t willing to make a cake for same-sex unions, let’s have them make a cake to honor Satan instead.” Continue reading “After the Sodomist cake comes the Satanist cake”
by Anthony Esolen, Crisis Magazine, commenting on a book by a notorious Catholic priest
Father James G. Martin, S.J., is either a cruel or a foolish man. It does not seem to be the first. But if it is not that, it must be the second, because that alone can explain how a Catholic priest can live in the midst of massive and unprecedented family breakdown, and the chaos, loneliness, and alienation consequent upon it, and still wave the banner for the latest innovation in sexual confusion.
In a pre-election debate organized by the private TV sender “Puls 4”, the leaders of the six parties competing in the upcoming national elections were asked whether they thought that Austria “needs a Christian lead culture that should be inscribed in the countries constitution”. This answer had to be answered with Yes or No, although it was possible to add some nuance in the subsequent debate. Continue reading “Austria: clear majority intends to vote for parties that uphold Christian lead culture”
Following the outcome of last week’s elections to the Bundestag, Angela Merkel, despite heavy losses, seems set to remain at the helm of Germany’s federal government. The question, however, is with whom se will be able to form a coalition. Continue reading “Weitermerkeln”
Following the introduction of sodo-“marriage” through a referendum in 2015, the – logical next step for the promoters of the culture of death in Ireland is to seek to overturn the explicit constitutional protection for unborn life in the Irish Constitution. To this purpose, the government has set up an ideologically biased so-called “Citizens’ Assembly”, which, consisting mainly of radical anti-life activists – has come up with the recommendation that the Eighth Constitutional Amendment, which obliges the State to protect and vindicate the life of unborn children, should be overturned. Such a step backward in human rights protection would be loudly applauded by the mass media and many politicians in Ireland and abroad – yet even now, even after the moral aberration of sodo-“marriage” has been accepted, Prime Minister Leo Varadkar, an openly declared homosexual, feels unsure whether the electorate will go along when it comes to legalizing abortion.
The referendum is expected to take place in March or April 2018.
