Divine Mercy Friday

40 Days for Life
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. (Gal 6:9) contact Lee Crowley, Vigil Coordinator
The vigil is the most visible part of any 40 Days for Life campaign and, unfortunately, the vigil calendar is not yet as full as we’d like it to be. That is why we need YOU to come and pray. Without people praying peacefully on the sidewalk, no one is there to give witness to the horror that is abortion in our community.

Tantasqua Regional School Committee recently became the fourth school district to allow parents the ability to opt their children out of the field testing of the Common Core's PARCC assessment. Norfolk School Committee, Chaired by Shawn Dooley who recently won a special election for the State House of Representatives, was the first school district in the Commonwealth to vote to allow parents the option. Worcester Public School Committee has also voted to give parents the same right. Northampton has sought to opt out of the field test altogether.

The controversy starts with Common Core Standards which are the Federal education standards that the Obama Administration has coerced states into adopting. These Federal standards take away local control and for Massachusetts, which already has some of the highest standards in the nation, they lower the standards.

"In a time of universal deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act." - George Orwell
Homosexual lobby pushing radical changes to Mass. school "anti-bullying" laws -- to silence opposing opinions, force diversity training... The homosexual lobby is now putting a full-court press on the Massachusetts Legislature to pass H3909 which would change the state's school "anti-bullying" law -- to completely silence any negative discussion of those behaviors and threaten schools and administrators that do not comply.

They have made this a top priority. On Feb. 24, it quietly passed the House by a large margin (145-4!). It is now in the Senate Ways and Means Committee, and could go to the full Senate any day.

The front page of the hardcore Boston homosexual newspaper Bay Windows brags that they're getting closer to passing the bill. Part of a larger agenda

For years MassResistance has been exposing how the homosexual movement is using legitimate school bullying concerns across the country to hijack anti-bullying legislation and push laws that force their agenda on children and all school employees. This is just the latest on the homosexual movement's obsession with the nation's public schools.

Romney Gives Marriage Reinforce Mitt
Mitt Romney may not be running for president again, but there is one issue he's still campaigning for -- marriage. The former governor, who was criticized for not doing more to try to stop the Massachusetts Supreme Court from imposing same-sex "marriage" on his state, is not mincing words. With state amendments being attacked one-by-one in the era of Obama lawlessness, Romney is back in the spotlight, speaking up for the millions of Americans who feel like they're losing their voice. The Republican nominee wasn't willing to concede marriage then -- and, on NBC's Meet the Press, he showed he isn't willing to now either.

"I think marriage is a relationship between a man and a woman," Romney said.
"And I think the ideal setting for raising a child is in a setting where there's a father and mother. Despite what the media wants people to believe, Republicans haven't "lost" the gay marriage issue, he explained. "I think you stand for various principles, you communicate those to the American people, and they either support those or not. Sometimes if something is lost, while you move on to the next issue, you wish you had won that one but you move on. In this case, it continues to be an issue that people find relevant and important, something that is being considered in various states around the country."

Like most Americans, he thinks it should be up to the states -- not judges -- to define marriage. "I do believe, by the way, that it's best decided by the people rather than the courts," Romney said. "When the courts step in and make a decision of this nature, they're removing from the people something which they have the right to decide themselves."

Beyond Belief: The World of the Persecuted Church
Habila Adamu will never be a household name in America -- but to the millions of persecuted Christians in Eastern Africa, he is a symbol of the fierce courage it takes to live by faith in the face of death. Fourteen months ago, the Nigerian businessman was at home when two masked gunman showed up at his door and ordered his wife to leave. We're here, they said, "to do the work of Allah." Pointing their AK-47s in his direction, the shooters asked if Habila was a Christian. "Yes," he replied. They asked him why he hadn't accepted Islam, despite hearing the message of Mohammed. Again, he told them, "I am a Christian. We are also preaching the gospel of the true God to you and to other people who do not yet know God." "Are you ready to die as a Christian?" the men sneered. "I am ready to die as a Christian," he told them. They asked him one more time -- and before Habila could finish, a bullet silenced him, permanently.

Mark Fisher, candidate for Governor, the only candidate the Pro-Life could vote for. Vote values - Fisher for the Primary. Scott Lively will run as an Independent.
Scott publically stated that if Mark wins the Primary and carries the true conservative banner, he would step aside and support Mark in the General. Two honorable men indeed.
