Buffer Zone Judas

Mass Resistance coverage of the House debate on the buffer zone. The final vote tally 119 yeas, 33 nays and 3 not voting. This happened the day before the governor signed the bill.
Last email had initial vote tally of 116 yeas, 35 nays and 4 not voting, but Fitchburg Rep Steve DiNatale switched from a "no" a "yes" vote, supporting the new buffer zone on the final vote. I apologize for the mistake. Leominster area, Dennis Rosa maintained his "no" vote.

Aug 9 Sat Mass celebrated Fr. Jonathan Slavinskas, in the Problem Pregnancy Chapel, 495 Pleasant St. Worc, followed by Sidewalk prayerful protest in front of Planned Parenthood, 470 Pleasant St. Worc

Dale O’Leary, author of “One Man, One Woman, A Catholic’s Guide to Defending Marriage”, (available at Shower of Roses in W.Boylston), has written a well-researched, thorough and compassionate defense of our Church’s teaching that marriage is a life-long union between one man and one woman. I continue quoting from this work to assist our outreach to our brothers and sisters who have Same-Sex Attraction, SSA.
“For many years , gay activists challenged the studies showing a high rate of other psychological problems among persons with SSA, insisting that the studies were poorly designed and used small samples. But four recent large and well-designed studies (Fergusson 1999, Herrell 1999, Cochran 2000 and Sandfort 2002) have provided convincing evidence that persons with SSA are significantly more likely to suffer from depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and suicide attempts.” P.130
