Pro-lifers to be classed as hate-preachers

Briefing: another consequence of trying to deal with militant Islam while trying to seem 'even handed'. While there is a lunatic fringe of violence in the pro-life movemnet in the United States, this legislation could catch a much wider group of people.

From CFNews: Pro-life activists could be included among the 'hate preachers' who would be barred from entry into Great Britain under new rules proposed by home secretary Jacqui Smith. The rules, introducing as a step to combat terrorism, would exclude anyone 'engaged in fostering, encouraging or spreading extremism and hatred.' The rules introduced by Smith would cover anyone whose views are deemed 'extremist,' potentially including outspoken opponents of legal abortion or same-sex marriage. [CWNews]

Pope Leo XIII's Prayer to St Michael

Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust down to Hell Satan, and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
