A Black Mass Coming to Oklahoma City?

  • Description: "Recently I came across a schedule of events for the Civic Center Music Hall in Oklahoma City. Imagine my astonishment upon reading about a ticketed “Black Mass” performance that will be presented at this public institution! I am willing to give the benefit of the doubt and assume that this event was scheduled without knowledge of what was going to be taking place. The so-called Black Mass is an occult ritual normally carried out in secret among those initiated into its dark mysteries. It is astonishing that this is being performed in such a public way and in public space. In a Black Mass a consecrated Sacred Host, obtained by stealth from a Catholic Mass, is corrupted in a vile and sexual manner and then becomes the sacrifice of this pseudo Mass offered in homage to Satan." - Archbishop Coakley

Nomination of Rabbi Saperstein for Ambassador at Large for International Religious Freedom

  • Description: "President Obama is yet again demonstrating his callous disregard for religious liberty by nominating Rabbi Saperstein for Ambassador at Large for International Religious Freedom. Saperstein favors fining family business owners for their religious beliefs and forcing Americans into complicity with abortion against their deeply-held religious beliefs, something the Supreme Court has already ruled against. How can a man that favors upending longstanding, bi-partisan religious liberty protections at home be trusted to protect those persecuted for their faith overseas?"
