God Bless these brave souls who went toe-to-toe with a nasty pro-abortion, pro-gay marriage group that came together to protest a tribute held in honor of pro-life hero Joe Scheidler in Chicago (last week I wrote about the recent threats Joe has received from pro-aborts).
Here is a good photo showing the two rallys separated by a thin river of pavement:

Behold the power of the Interwebs! Taylor Marshall, over at his Canterbury Tales blog, has unearthed a video of Pope Benedict’s ordination to the priesthood on June 29, 1951, in Friesing. No lie. You can spot him below at the 4:52-4:55 mark:
Benedict recalls a moment from this very scene in his memoirs:

This video is done for a group organizing a pilgrimage to WYD:
I’m hoping the WYD organizers get me some press credentials soon so I can book my tickets!
Today has been a crazy day – thank you for keeping up with all the important things happening. As a small token of my appreciation, here’s a little gift:
This week President Obama appointed vehemently pro-abortion (and pro gay marriage) Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL) to be the new head of the Democrat Party.

The clever new media folks at the Population Research Institute have a new video with a very outside-of-the-box proposal – instead of funding Planned Parenthood and international abortion to the tune of millions, let’s use that money to save millions of kids who are dying from Malaria in Africa:
Planned Parenthood wants us to believe that the money that goes to them saves lives. It d... More
Since I *know* we’re not eating right now I figured we could use something to pass the time:
(And yes, for the record, I know some of you are spending today in prayer, which I heartily endorse.)

AOL.com has apparently teamed up with the Archdiocese of New York to get Archbishop Timothy Dolan on tape, with a simple message for Catholics beginning Lent today as well as non-Catholics or fallen-away Catholics who are curious about what it’s all about:

A mix of anger and stupidity on display at Planned Parenthood’s rally yesterday, as a local reporter interviews their supporters (jump to 2:59 in the video for the “best” part):
Folks, this is what we are dealing with on the other side.
If you live in PA, NY, RI or NH – come out for a pro-life rally!
Meanwhile, over at the LiveAction blog, I’ve introduced a contest, ... More
