Planned Parenthood drops suit challenging Indiana ultrasound requirement

CNA Staff, Aug 22, 2020 / 03:29 pm (CNA).- Planned Parenthood has agreed to drop a lawsuit against an Indiana law requiring an ultrasound for women prior to having an abortion.

“Due to events that have occurred in the more than three years since this court entered the preliminary injunction—including, Plaintiff’s addition of a new ultrasound machine at a new clinic in Fort Wayne—the parties have conferred and agree that, on January 1, 2021, the preliminary injunction should be vacated and this case should be dismissed,” said an Aug. 19 court filing from Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky and the state of Indiana.

State Attorney General Curtis Hill celebrated the decision.

Detroit man thought he was a priest. He wasn’t even a baptized Catholic

Denver Newsroom, Aug 22, 2020 / 02:10 pm (CNA).-  

If you think you’re a priest, and you really aren’t, you have a problem. So do a lot of other people. The baptisms you performed are valid baptisms. But the confirmations? No. The Masses you celebrated were not valid. Nor the absolutions or anointings. And the marriages? Well…it’s complicated. Some yes, some no. It depends on the paperwork, believe it or not.

Father Matthew Hood of the Archdiocese of Detroit learned all this the hard way.

Jackass priests who screw around with the forms (essential words) of sacraments. Wherein Fr. Z rants.

How many times over the years have I written on this blog about priests who fool around with the forms of sacrament, the necessary words to be pronounced?

How many?   A lot.

Very few things disturb people more than not being sure about the validity of a sacrament, be it Baptism, Penance or Eucharist.   I’ve dealt with literally hundreds of questions over the years via email about questionable forms being use, which really upsets people and fills them sometimes with fear.

PARODY SONG ALERT: I’m Just A Jesuit

In the wake of Fishwrap pimping its writers out for the Democrat (aka “Godless Party Of Death”) National Convention (DNC), I received a note from the famed multi-platinum recording star Zuhlio, that he had received from his close collaborator, the official Parodohymnodist of this blog, a new song for his consideration.

Given Zuhlio’s foray into many genres, it was thought that he might do this justice.  The original HERE

In Zuhlio’s note, however, he expressed regret:  “There’s only one Louis Prima, Father.  One.”
