  • Apostasy?? [Catholic Caucus]

    Fr. Hunwicke's Mutual Enrichment ^ | March 17, 2017 | Fr. John Hunwicke
    Apostasy?? More than a month ago, a Bergoglian bishop reportedly said: "Whoever wants to discover what Jesus wants from him, he must ask the Pope, this Pope, not the one who came before him, or the one who came before that. This present Pope". I had hoped to hear some retraction from this cleric ... after all, each of us can and often does misspeak, and we hope to be forgiven for it. Or some correction of those (perhaps just childishly impetuous) words, administered by the Roman Pontiff himself. But there has, I think, been nothing (if any reader is...

    Every woman in Saudi Arabia, regardless of age, has a legal male guardian, often a father or brother or son. Guardians have the power to make a range of critical decisions on a woman's behalf. Women need to get their permission to travel abroad, marry and sometimes to work or access health care. ... The guardianship system is "the most significant impediment to realizing women's rights in the country. ... Throughout the summer Saudi women began tweeting, detailing the injustices of the guardianship system -- risking the wrath of their guardians and the government in doing so. They got noticed....
  • Liberal Evangelicals Contort and Distort to Promote Pro-Abortion Hillary Clinton

    The Christian Post has allowed a Democrat operative to shill for Hillary Clinton, who rivals Barack Obama as the most pro-abortion presidential candidate in history. I’m trying to imagine if the issue were slavery, would the Christian Post give its space to the promotion of someone so determined to violently dehumanize God’s creation? If it’s remotely Christian to support a billion-dollar business that daily destroys nearly 1,000 defenseless human lives, then Christians can support anything.Eric Sapp authors a ridiculously dishonest piece entitled “Hillary Clinton is the Best Choice for Voters Against Abortion”. He writes: “I'll start by saying that I...

    The Guardian ^ | 9 June 2016 | Harriet Sherwood
    For someone who is in love and recently married, a wedge of very odd pain is lodged in Mpho Tutu van Furths heart. It is caused by the South African Anglican churchs refusal to allow the daughter of one of the worlds best known Christian leaders to continue to work as a priest after she married the person with whom she has pledged to share the rest of her life: a woman. It was hard for me to give up my [priests] licence, it felt incredibly sad, Tutu van Furth whose father, Desmond Tutu, won the Nobel peace prize...

    President Obama and members of his administration frequently state that there is nothing Islamic about the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), but Secretary of State John Kerry on Tuesday went further, labeling the Sunni terrorist group "apostates." Even the world's pre-eminent Sunni institution, Cairo's Al-Azhar, has refused to declare ISIS apostate -- on the grounds that its fighters are "believers" in Islam, however misguided or "false" their interpretation of the faith may be. ...

    President Barack Obama will invite prominent American religious figures, including many of his political allies, to attend the White House reception at which he greets Pope Francis on September 23. Among the religious leaders invited for the event are Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson, the first openly homosexual bishop in the Anglican communion; Sister Simone Campbell of Nuns on the Bus; Rev. Joel Hunter, the Florida megachurch leader; Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference; and a Catholic blogger, Aaaron Ledesma, who drew the attention of the White House by writing on his experience as a gay...

    Washington D.C., Nov 6, 2014 / 08:41 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- In the wake of an intense Synod on the Family, a leading voice supporting admission to Communion for divorced and remarried Catholics said different sides on Church debates should not use Pope Francis' words to bolster their own agenda. Speaking at the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. on Nov. 6, Cardinal Walter Kasper aimed to explain Pope Francis and his pontificate. The emeritus president of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity spoke as the recipient of the 2014 Johannes Quasten Award. In attempting to understand the Pope,...

    Editors note: it is not our standard practice to publish excerpted content from another publication as one of our features. In this instance, however, we believe that the significance of the post-synodal interview with Bishop Athanasius Schneider warrants the full attention of our readers. In an interview with the Polish magazine Polonia Christiana, Bishop Athanasius Schneider, Auxiliary of the Archdiocese of Saint Mary in Astana, Kazakhstan, offers strong criticism of the proceedings of the recent Extraordinary Synod on Marriage and Family, which he predicts will remain for the future generations and for the historians a black mark which has stained...

    Cardinal Reinhard Marx of Munich said a strong majority of German bishops supported Cardinal Walter Kaspers proposal to find a way to allow divorced and remarried Catholics to receive Communion, and that he intended to raise the issue at the Synod of Bishops. Speaking at the close of the synods first day, Cardinal Marx also said it was crucial for the synods debate on family issues to be an open discussion that extends beyond the synod hall and involves the wider society. Marx, who is president of the German bishops conference, made his remarks in a meeting with journalists. Synod...

    Throw the Bums Out 2010 ^ | Thursday, October 2, 2014
    Over the last few days, Cardinal Burke made a few noteworthy statements about the dust up around the Chair of Peter. Cardinal Burke, Prefect of the Apostolic Signatura, said in a conference call with journalists on Tuesday that he found it amazing that Cardinal Kasper claimed to speak for the Pope. The Pope doesnt have laryngitis. The Pope is not mute. He can speak for himself. If this is what he wants, he will say so, Cardinal Burke said. But for me as a cardinal to say that what I am saying are the words of Pope Francis? That to...

    Rorate caeli ^ | 3/11/14 | New Catholic
    Yesterday, the Archbishop of Lucca (Tuscany, Italy) received a group of religion journalists for his annual chat, and the talk was moderated by a famous Vaticanist in Italian public television and radio network RAI, Raffaele Luise. The evening concluded with a debate in depth on the matter of homosexuality. Both Luise and the archbishop praise, in substance, the opening of the Church regarding gays and de facto couples. Particularly for Luise, it is necessary on this theme, "a cultural revolution, that contemplates the fact that homosexuality is not a deviancy, but a human attitude, and not just that, considering that...

    Lighthouse Trails has watched in dismay over the past few years as Charles Stanleys In Touch magazine has made the decision to promote contemplative/emergent names. When our editors picked up a copy of the August 2013 issue and saw a feature article written by Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, we decided to call In Touch Ministries to find out who was responsible for the content in the magazine. Sadly, the response we received from the editorial department at In Touch left us with a sinking feeling that the evangelical church has been seduced and there was no turning back. Well talk about the...

    At a recent Catholic conference I attended, one of the guest speakers asked those present if they had a family member who had either lapsed from the Catholic faith or if they had family members who never had it to begin with. Out of the more than 700 attendees, nearly every hand in the audience went up. Not surprising since it is estimated that upwards twenty million Americans consider themselves to be lapsed Catholics. More than likely, we all know of someone within each of our families who simply no longer practice the faith or who have not yet come...
  • PCUSA rejects popular hymn In Christ Alone

    I saw this over at Denny Burks blog today. Apparently the reason the Presbyterian Church USA doesnt like In Christ Alone (one of my favorites), is because of that unpopular, un-politically correct word, Wrath. As weve pointed out many times here at SUFTT, the more sin is watered down, the less we have of the true Gospel. In other words no sin = FALSE gospel. The PCUSA has been going down a concerning path for quite some time now, and it appears that this is just another symptom of the problem the devil delights in: a departure from Truth...

He followed his father and grandfather into church leadership and finally became an area authority overseeing the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints throughout Europe When fellow believers in Sweden first began coming to him with information from the Internet that contradicted the churchs history and teachings, he dismissed it as anti-Mormon propaganda, the whisperings of Lucifer. He asked his superiors for help in responding to the members doubts, and when they seemed to only sidestep...

    The Reformed Catholic Church which is spearheaded by married priests plans to have an African pope. The church bishops who included Peter Njogu of Mt Kenya region diocese and John Karimi of Kirinyaga said on Saturday they are planning to have one centre of power in Africa where they will install a pope. "We may not necessary call him pope like the Roman Catholic but we may get another name similar to that. Our church is growing very fast and it is the high time we Africans have one centre of power in Africa," said Karimi. The bishops said since...

    On September 10, 2010, the day before our enormous freedom rally at Ground Zero protesting the Ground Zero victory mega-mosque, the New York Times profiled a Muslim named Sinclair Hejazi Abdus-Salaam, who had no place to pray. The whole story was a subtle advertisement for the Ground Zero mega-mosque. But as it turns out, Sinclair Hejazi Abdus-Salaam is not quite the "moderate" that the leftist NYT dhimmis assumed he was, but calls openly for the murder of apostates from Islam -- here in the U.S. Here again we see The NY Times legitimizing and norming the most extreme voices. They...
