Breitbart is helping to spread the latest Trump tweet: 

President Donald J. Trump has backed the fight to save the critically ill British baby Charlie Gard, saying he would be “delighted” to “help” the boy after a European court ruled his parents could not privately fund a final attempt to treat him.

The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) has been slammed for acting like a “death panel” after denying Charlie’s parents the chance to take their son to the U.S. for “experimental treatment”.

The court argued that little Charlie was too ill, could not be saved, and must “die with dignity” in the UK.

His mother disagreed, insisting, “Charlie should get a chance to try these medications”, explaining: “He literally has nothing to lose but potentially a healthier, happier life to gain.”

The President waded in on the debate on Monday, tweeting: “If we can help little #CharlieGard, as per our friends in the U.K. and the Pope, we would be delighted to do so.”

REMANANT COMMENT: So remind me again: Why does it make absolutely no difference to pro-life America (and to the unborn) that Trump won the last election?  Because I'm still a bit unclear on that.

(CNA/EWTN News):

On Wednesday Pope Francis said that following Christ means taking a path contrary to that of the world, and being prepared to suffer because of this; though we have hope because of God’s constant presence.

“Persecution is not a contradiction to the gospel, but is part of it: if they persecuted our Master, how can we hope that we will be spared the struggle?” he said June 28.

“However, in the midst of the whirlwind, the Christian must not lose hope, thinking he has been abandoned. Jesus reassures his disciples saying, ‘Even the hairs of your head are all counted.’ As much as to say that none of the sufferings of man, even the most minute and hidden, are invisible to the eyes of God.”

“God sees, and surely protects; and will give his ransom.”

Pope Francis continued his catechesis on the theme of Christian hope during the weekly general audience Wednesday in St. Peter’s Square. This time he reflected on the counter-cultural life of the Christian, which will mean withstanding persecution on some level, and for some, even martyrdom.   “Christians are therefore men and women ‘against the current,’” he said. “It is normal: since the world is marked by sin, manifested in various forms of egoism and injustice, those who follow Christ walk in the opposite direction.” READ ARTICLE HERE

REMNANT COMMENT: What in the world has Pope Francis taught that would in any way lead to persecution? No "proselytism”, no dogma, no rigidity, "who am I to judge?", divorce is ok, ecological virtues, etc.  The man sucks up to the modern West at every opportunity to the point there is nothing to be persecuted over. It's called human respect. And eventually it's going to run out. 

Is Pope Francis finally beginning to sense that there might be a shelf life for Greg Burke's awesomely-humble pope shtick?

 

This just in from our friends at LifeSite – The new U.S. delegation to the United Nations has rejected a resolution on violence against women because it called for abortion to continue in countries where it's legal. 

Canada introduced the resolution, which was adopted by consensus.

The U.S. said they supported it in "spirit," but not its call for "comprehensive sexual and health-care services" and "safe abortion where such services are permitted by national law." 

"We do not recognize abortion as a method of family planning, nor do we support abortion in our reproductive health assistance," said U.S. First Secretary to the U.N. in Geneva Jason Mack. The U.S. "must dissociate from the consensus," he said as reported by Reuters.  READ THE REST HERE


REMNANT COMMENT:  As the LSN story further points out, in April, the Trump administration pulled funding from the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) over its cooperation with China's forced abortion regime. President Trump also reinstated the Mexico City Policy preventing U.S. taxdollars from funding abortion and the promotion of abortion overseas. And Trump picked the former governor of South Carolina, pro-life Nikki Haley, to serve as U.S. ambassador to the U.N.

So remind me again: Why does it make absolutely no difference to pro-life America (and to the unborn) that Trump won the last election?  Because I'm still a bit unclear on that.

Edward Pentin's significant interview with Monsignor Bux just in from National Catholic Register

Theologian and former consulter to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith calls on the Pope to make a declaration of faith, warning that unless the Pope safeguards doctrine, he cannot impose discipline.

To resolve the current crisis in the Church over papal teaching and authority, the Pope must make a declaration of faith, affirming what is Catholic and correcting his own “ambiguous and erroneous” words and actions that have been interpreted in a non-Catholic manner.

This is according to Monsignor Nicola Bux, a respected theologian and former consulter to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith during Benedict XVI’s pontificate.

In the following interview with the Register, Msgr. Bux explains that the Church is in a “full crisis of faith” and that the storms of division the Church is currently experiencing are due to apostasy — the “abandonment of Catholic thought.”
