Not everyone can simply . Even when we can not, we should actively work to use it less -- much less -- with the objective of deleting it asap.

This piece covers a lot of ground, but doesn't mention the biggest issue which is their unrelenting anti-Christian and anti-conservative censorship.

This isn't far off the mark; Democrats and their progressive allies are using racial politics in a manner that is approaching those of the Nazis, that of demonizing and scapegoating certain racial and ethnic groups. Also, the new wave of abortion laws, starting with the so-called "Reproductive Health Act" in NY that legalize abortion up to delivery, would make Dr. Josef Mengele proud, given the instruments abortionists use in their barbaric acts.

(Mk 4:24-25)
He also told them, "Take care what you hear. The measure with which you measure will be measured out to you, and still more will be given to you.

To the one who has, more will be given; from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away."

(Mk 4:16-20)
And these are the ones sown on rocky ground who, when they hear the word, receive it at once with joy. But they have no root; they last only for a time. Then when tribulation or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away.

Those sown among thorns are another sort. They are the people who hear the word, but worldly anxiety, the lure of riches, and the craving for other things intrude and choke the word, and it bears no fruit.

But those sown on rich soil are the ones who hear the word and accept it and bear fruit thirty and sixty and a hundredfold."

(Mk 3:33-35)
But he said to them in reply, "Who are my mother and [my] brothers?" And looking around at those seated in the circle he said, "Here are my mother and my brothers. [For] whoever does the will of God is my brother and sister and mother."

Centering prayer is NOT prayer. The "centering" is exclusively on self, not a dialog between God and the soul. Dr. David Anders recently addressed this on his EWTN "Called to Communion" show.

(Mk 3:29)
But whoever blasphemes against the holy Spirit will never have forgiveness, but is guilty of an everlasting sin.”

(Lk 1:1-4)
Since many have undertaken to compile a narrative of the events that have been fulfilled among us, just as those who were eyewitnesses from the beginning and ministers of the word have handed them down to us,

I too have decided, after investigating everything accurately anew, to write it down in an orderly sequence for you, most excellent Theophilus, so that you may realize the certainty of the teachings you have received.

This morning I had the privilege of attending the ordination of my friend, now Deacon Tim.

After promising obedience to our bishop and his successors, the bishop says "May God who has begun the good work in you bring it to fulfillment."

(Mk 3:20-21)
He came home. Again [the] crowd gathered, making it impossible for them even to eat. When his relatives heard of this they set out to seize him, for they said, "He is out of his mind."

(Mk 16:15-16):
He said to them, “Go into the whole world and proclaim the gospel to every creature.

Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved; whoever does not believe will be condemned.

(Mk 3:11):
And whenever unclean spirits saw him they would fall down before him and shout, “You are the Son of God.”

It's the media conglomerates -- TV, radio, newspapers and social media overlords. Been doin' it for years. Now elevated to an art form.

(Mk 3:4-5):
Then he said to them, “Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath rather than to do evil, to save life rather than to destroy it?” But they remained silent.

Looking around at them with anger and grieved at their hardness of heart, he said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” He stretched it out and his hand was restored.

No matter what is said now or how iron-clad the proof to the contrary, the public will have learned over the last week that (1) Trump told Cohen to lie to congress and (2) Covington Catholic boys are an aggressive, hateful, despicable lot. The continual fake news pouring out of the mainstream media is working. This is why they will not change.

Attention all people of good will, regardless of your political viewpoint, please do not put your trust in US mainstream news.

FWIW, the Media Research Center reports on these "stories":

Michael Knowles shows what really happened and how CNN (as just 1 example) reported it. They wonder why they are called fake news.

An interesting story. On one hand, the media inadvertently admitted the March for Life even happened. On the other, faithful Christians were persecuted for their beliefs (Christian, Catholic, pro-life) and conservative values. They were *targeted* for these "sins", immediately convicted by the rabid left and their punishment will likely be life-long. Dripping with extra irony was Fr. James Martin questioning their integrity as Catholics.

The problem with all that, it turns out, is there wasn't even an ounce of truth to it. Some media (quietly) added muted "corrections" but the only true correction would be to admit the entire story was false and politically motivated.

This is excellent commentary:

(Mk 2:24,27-28):
At this the Pharisees said to him, “Look, why are they doing what is unlawful on the sabbath?”

Then he said to them, “The sabbath was made for man, not man for the sabbath. That is why the Son of Man is lord even of the sabbath.”
