YouTube community guidelines

I find these useful to know what to post on YouTube and what not to. Knowing South African law, as well as the rules of sites you use is very important.

I find oddly enough, we can always portray our views without violating most restrictions on speech. My own country South Africa limits said freedom extensively, and in accordance with RICA, keeps all our phone and email etc conversations, content and all in database form. As a result I am more cautious on what I say, and more bold. With YouTube, and the like, take that approach, say what you want without risking your account, you mostly can.

Cuba's Castro, begins moving "political" prisoners closer to home, after negotiations with the Catholic church

I think I noted this some time ago, that the Holy Roman Catholic church had gotten Raul Castro's Cuba to agree to start moving prisoners closer to their families, and to move the sick to hospital. The first of these has now started to be achieved, says AFP. The Church has also succeeded in getting the authorities in Communist Cuba, to lift the ban on the dissidents' female relatives: The Ladies in White, marching in the streets, says AFP.

At least six prisoners have reportedly been moved so far!

Felix Navarro, Antonio Diaz, Diosdado Gonzalez, Ivan Hernandez; Jose Luis Garcia Paneque, Arnaldo Ramos, have been moved closer to their families so far, they: AFP- quote the office of the Archbishop of Havanna to say.

Media Bias in America's ABC, on abortion

In a shockingly amiss article on Sister Margaret McBride, who caused an elective abortion in a Catholic hospital, and was thus declared excommunicated in accordance with the automatic punishment in canon law, ABC attacks the church stance on abortion, notes "many canon lawyers", and doesn't give the Catholic side of the story.

There was a mere possibility of mother and child dying, and even then I don't see why there are not options such as a caesarean section, or the possibility that it was not the pregnancy which caused it, after all, it is not certain what causes it, according to the medical sources, I a layman have consulted. The child was aborted at 11 weeks due to a diagnosis that the mother was suffering from pulmonary hypertension, a lung disease, which ABC says only could possibly be linked to pregnancy, in their health section. Whether or not the mother's life was saved according to their own medical section, is thus doubtable. And they only name one canon lawyer, Father Thomas Doyle: while attacking the choice of a bishop. They also attack the church on sex abuse, but the reason those trials take so long, is as there is often a lack of proof. Here, the delict was admitted to.

“Referendarius” (formal expert advisor) to the Apostolic Signatura, which Thomas Peters of American Papist calls the highest court in the catholic Church, Edward N. Peters JD JCD, states that the canonical plea of necessity, can only be mitigating at best when the oppressor has committed a delict which by its nature is intrinsically evil, such as the delict of abortion.

He thus agrees with Bishop Olmsted, that Sr. Margaret, who chose to cause an elective abortion of pregnancy at a Catholic hospital, is indeed excommunicated, whether latae sententiae (by the act of the abortion/automatically), or ferendae sententiae: by the declaration of the excommunication, by Bishop Olmsted.

(I am not a canon lawyer or doctor, what I say is not medical or canonical advice)

A biased AFP story on priestly Celibacy

Australia's Australian Broadcasting Corporation carries this biased article by AFP: allowing incorrect "facts" to be portrayed, such as the idea of non-existent "married popes", allowing sex no matter what to be portrayed as a fundamental right, free love isn't one, and quoting, or misquoting indirectly a minimal few members of the hierarchy, out of context, and apart from the vast majority, without any argument on the church's side.

It quotes priests' former "wives" i.e. illicit lovers.

Italy's Lombardy Region to support pregnant women who don't abort

Many elective abortions occur every year in Italy, due to financial reasons, but Lombardy Regional President, Roberto Formigoni, believes it should be so no more. Women who cannot afford pregnancy easily, will be compensated.

While critics have said women may get pregnant for the cash, or have asked what happens after the period is over, it was recently revealed by financial firm KPMG, that the world faces economic crises in the future, due to a reduction in population sizes and growth.

The Regional President belongs to Silvio Berlusconi's People of Freedom Party. His religious affiliation, like many in Italy, is Roman Catholic. 130 000 (One Hundred and Thirty Thousand), over one tenth of a million elective abortions are reported in Italy every year, says tabloid the Daily Mail.

Conservative watchdogs unite to fight Comedy Central's anti-Christian "Jesus" cartoon series

A number of media watchdogs, against bigotry, including Bill Donohue, of the Catholic League, and Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, are uniting against Comedy Central: the makers of South Park, in order to stop a cartoon with a Jesus trying to escape the shadow of his "powerful but apathetic father", while trying to be normal in New York City. The watchdogs, under the banner: CARB (Coalition Against Religious Bigotry), are asking advertisers to look at what they see as a double standard, given Comedy Central's decision to censor South Park on Islam's the Prophet Mohammed.

They consider the show, which hasn't got the green light to air yet, to be anti-Christian bigotry, and thus they believe, should be of concern to any decent advertisers.
