The Pope's Third Video is Here -- Not as Bad as It Could Be

Edit:  the video appeared just as soon as we posted our query.   Sure, it isn't as bad as the others, but the supernatural component of the family is almost completely absent in this rather sociological treatment.

What about the threats against the family posed by planned parenthood, the entertainment industry and the homo-lobby?  The suggestion, we suppose, is that families can only be helped by more government intervention.

We humbly suggest that families can only be helped today by restoring the traditions of our grandfathers.

Aberromarriage Bill Struck Down in Illinois, For Now

St. Charles Lwanga and Compansions
Edit: the war on the family continues.  These avid democratic fighters may suffer setbacks, but they’ll keep on voting until they get it.  Even Obama couldn’t get it on the current agenda to spirit this through.  The Catholic Church (Except for Father Pfluger and others like him.) and conservative black churches have been instrumental in blocking this.  Continuing to identify the legitimization of non-reproductive sexual deviants with legitimate marriage as a civil rights issue may have damaged their cause, as National Review suggests.

[Washington Post] A bill that would legalize gay marriage failed to come to a vote in the Illinois state House on Friday, after proponents were reportedly unable to secure enough votes to send it to Gov. Pat Quinn (D) for his signature. With the legislature adjourning, the measure will have to wait until the fall. 
The state Senate previously passed the bill by a wide margin, but the votes were not there in the House, despite an unusual move by President Obama to endorse the legislation
The legislative session came to an end Friday, but supporters of the bill say they will try to pass it when the legislature returns in the fall.
