Interesting Facts

This blog really has nothing to do with the Catholic faith directly, but indirectly it should make a lot of Catholics uneasy and make them question their views.

This information is taken from an article in the March 2010 edition of Townhall magazine, page 72-73.

Title: The real Party of Civil Rights

Sen. Everett …Democrats claim to be champions of civil. In fact, they have been among black Americas’ harshest foes.

It is hard to overstate the consistency and ferocity with which Democrats through U.S. history have opposed civil rights legislation for black Americans. The Republican Party has been responsible for ensuring the passage of virtually every major civil rights initiative in U.S. history, including winning passage of the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments, the Civil Rights Act of 1957, and authoring, introducing and seeing to passage the 1960 Civil Rights Act. But it would be a speech by Everett McKinley Dirksen, the Republican Senate minority leader from Illinois, leading his small band of Senate Republicans, that would pave the way for the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

On June 10, 1964, at exactly 9:51 am, former KKK member Sen. Robert C. Byrd, theLBJ signing the Civil Rights Act of 1964  Democrat from West Virginia, spoke the last word of what had been a 14-hour and 13-minute speech in opposition to the Civil Rights Act of 1964. In the House, of the 420 voting members at the time, the bill had passed on a 290-130 vote. House Republicans supported the ill by a 138-34 margin. Democrats, however, had been more divided, voting for he bill 152-96….

The above is only part of the article, the rest of the article is Sen. Everett’s speech.

Common perception is the Republicans are anti Civil Right and Democrats are pro-civil rights. Well as the history and votes show, that simple is not the case. Once again the American people have been lied to and duped! And many in the Catholic faith have walked blindly in to the lie.

Like I said it is not directly related to the faith, but indirectly it is. I hope this makes you stop and think, maybe do a little research on your own and find out the truth of the Democratic and Republican Parties.

God Bless


About Paul Sposite

Paul Sposite - Life Coach I began my career as an instructor. As an instructor there are two basic requirements. You have to know yourself, so you know where you’re drawing your inspiration from. And you have to actively listen to the others, and then respond to the subtext of what they are saying. In learning about myself I started to focus a lot on my students, how they learned, what questions they were asking and how I could best modify my methods to best serve them. I believe that if you use your real life problems/issues as insights to the issues you need to heal, you’ll grow. From my experience in the classroom, creating curriculum and material to support my training, I developed an interest in how people process information. This interest turned into my interest in Life Coaching.

  1. Hitler’s real name was Adolf Schicklgruber but his father 1876, took the name Hitler, by his stepfather Johann Georg Hiedler. The name was spelled Hiedler, Hüttler, Huettler and Hitler, and was probably regularized to Hitler by a clerk. The origin of the name is either “one who lives in a Hut” (Standard German Hutt), “Shepherd” (Standard German hüten “to guard,” English heed), or is from the Slavic word Hidlar and Hidlarcek. (Regarding the first two theories: some German dialects make little or no distinction between the ü-sound and the i-sound.).
