Published

One mom’s incredible birth experience nearly ended in tragedy after her fresh c-section left her numb and unable to walk amid the raging California wildfires. An incredible collaboration of total strangers, however, led to Heather Roebuck’s safe escape and reunion with her husband and newborn daughter.

“It was sheer terror,” Roebuck said, recalling her own evacuation in an ambulance to ABC10. “They just stitched me up really quickly.”

Heather Roebuck had just had her baby in Feather River Hospital when the Camp Fire's flames began surrounding the building. Then a group of medical staff and first responders ensured she escaped and survived: http://via.fox40.com/lU4hs

They’d only driven half a mile from the hospital when the ambulance caught fire. Roebuck, unable to walk and surrounded by flames, made what she thought would be her last call to her husband.

“I realized I’m not going to make it, I’m really sorry,” she told him, adding that she loved him and wasn’t going to be there with the kids.

What happened next was a lifesaving miracle of cooperation between total strangers who went from saying their last goodbyes to fighting for survival in a matter of moments.

A pediatrician, who seemed to appear out of nowhere, placed Roebuck on a backboard and dragged her out into the street.

“I see the paramedic on the roof, spraying down the roof,” nurse Tamara Ferguson told ABC10. “I see someone over here with a hose filling buckets. Chrissy is sweeping, someone with a shovel, I picked up piles of brush and cleared them to the road.”

Paradise Fire Chief David Hawks also showed up to shuttle Roebuck and another ambulance of full of hospital patients into the nearest house.

“There’s a dog door here that one of the paramedics made access to. We unlocked the garage, moved patients into this home and sheltered them in place,” Hawks told Fox News.

The homes on either side each of the house were destroyed by the fire, but the home Roebuck and other Feather River Hospital ambulance patients sought shelter in only had a burned fence.

The home belongs to Desiree Borden, who had already barely escaped the fire along with her husband and daughter that night. “Once you got past one fire, there was another one, once you got past the next one, power poles were falling on you,” Borden told Good Day Sacramento.

Then, Borden received a shocking phone call: “They said, ‘Your home was a safe haven for us, your home saved our lives.’”

Roebuck credited the bravery and teamwork of all these people with her survival and return to her family: “They saved our family, and if it weren’t for them, I wouldn’t be here.”

Argentine Photographer Captures INCREDIBLE Image of Christ-Like Cloud

It cannot be denied that our world is in the midst of turmoil unlike anything we’ve seen in the past. From Birmingham to Beijing, we are seeing unprecedented poverty, crime, hate, violence, war, famine….you name it.  Combine these issues with a mainstream media who is salivating at the chance to rile us up for ratings and money, and the world becomes a downright scary place. Where do we turn when the world seems to shun us?  For some, the answers lie in the bottom of a bottle.  For others, it’s self-harm or outward violence. For many, however, their faith is their rock.  They turn to the religious world for answers to the questions that plague us today, and, often, they discover signs of encouragement. Such is the case today in Argentina. Monica Aramayo was in San Salvador de Jujuy in Argentina when she noticed the holy figure shining through the thick clouds Social media user Mariela Romano said: “The Lord will soon come for us all and we should be ready. While another said: “Thanks for the image that allows us to keep on our path and have a better hope for tomorrow.” The photo has to be seen to be believed. https://twitter.com/faithdefender/status/1128809009153097728 The pose and grand scale of the image has reminded many observers of the famous Christ The Redeemer statue in Brazil. https://twitter.com/OtravelAI/status/1082513665700507648 And while the cloud formation certainly isn’t going to change the minds of the unfaithful, it does provide us all with a reminder that we are loved, and we must remain harmonious with one another on this turbulent little space rock.

Former Pope Blames ‘Swingin’ Sixties’ for Catholic Church’s Cesspool of Pedophilia

The Catholic Church is again attempting to blame their rampant pedophilia on the outside world.

Published

on

Pope Benedict

The high pontiffs of the Catholic Church would make fantastic dodgeball players. Given just how well they’ve avoided taking the blame for, or properly reacting to, the disturbing prevalence of pedophilia among their ranks, there is little doubt that these purposefully-ignorant would be able to dodge just about anything. The problem is obtuse, obvious, and ostensibly disgusting.  There are literally thousands upon thousands of young children who have been sexualized by Catholic priests over the course of several decades in all corners of the globe.  The problem is not isolated at all, and the only common factor between these horrific crimes is that they occurred at the hands of the Catholic Church. If the entire world got sick from eating a certain food, we would stop eating that food.  In the case of the Catholic Church, the children of the world are being undeniably harmed by their religious leaders in habitual and systemic acts of pedophilia, yet the leaders at The Vatican continue to ignore and obfuscate the truth. Now, one former Pope is even blaming the cultural revolution of the 1960’s for the issue. Emeritus Pope Benedict has emerged from his cone of silence to offer a personal analysis of the clerical sex abuse crisis, citing the sexual revolution, a corruption of moral theology, and the formation of “homosexual cliques” in seminaries as causes of the problem. Benedict says that he felt compelled to contribute to a response to the present situation “since I myself had served in a position of responsibility as shepherd of the Church at the time of the public outbreak of the crisis,” and so penned his reflections, obtaining the present pope’s blessing to make them public. In his new, 6,000-word bombshell essay, the former pope turns his gaze toward societal forces outside the Church as well as…
