Dear Readers,

The first June 30 report is an unusually lengthy one. If the subject of the Canadian Bishops' Conference report on Development and Peace and the report's rebuke of LSN is not of interest to you, then please skip to the other stories. For those who are interested, after reading the CCCB report you will likely agree that our detailed response is necessary.

President Obama has come fully out of the closet on the homosexual issue. Some starry eyed social conservative Obama supporters thought the abortion president had begun to listen to the concerns of the people on the homosexual and gay 'marriage' issues. Yet another naivete bubble has been burst.

There has been a lot of response from readers on the Development and Peace controversy which has quite frankly been draining us. In our almost 14 years of existence, few other issues have grown so large, taken up so much of our resources and generated such intense hostility towards our usual reporting of facts. LifeSiteNews is not doing anything different on this issue, but those affected by the revealed facts in this case have proven to be especially annoyed and unwilling to admit there is a problem.

I was recently told by a supporter, “be careful about going after liberal Catholics. They will come after you with a vengeance.” Well, we are not going after anyone. We are going after the truth, as always. It does certainly appear, though, that some of those affected by these reports (and we do not include in this most of the bishops) are coming after us with a vengeance.

Please pray for LifeSiteNews. We could use the reinforcement.

Also, pray for the great Msgr. Vincent Foy. We learned that the 92-year-old famed Canadian Catholic canon lawyer had a fall today resulting in a serious hip injury. Just a few weeks ago he celebrated his 70th anniversary as a priest and gave a long talk at the event that was just amazing.
