  • Justice Antonin Scalia: A very traditional Catholic

    NCR (The Fishwrap) ^ | 02-15-2016 | Maureen Fiedler
    There have been thousands of words written about Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, who died on Feb. 13. Most describe his political and legal views, which were very conservative. But I have read very little about his religious beliefs. And they were easily as conservative as his legal views. Scalia was a Roman Catholic, one of six on the Supreme Court. But Scalia was a very traditional Roman Catholic. He was not comfortable with the changes brought about by the Second Vatican Council. He was so traditional that, in fact, he searched out and attended a Tridentine Mass in Latin...
  • San Bernardino Shooting: Elite Media Mocks Faithful Offering "Thoughts And Prayers"

    12/02/2015 3:06:54 PM PST · by Biggirl · 15 replies ^ | December 2, 2015 | John Nolte
    As good people on social media watched unspeakable events unfurl in San Bernardino, California, on their television sets, all one could do in a situation where you can really do nothing is pray and offer those prayers to the world. Naturally, elite members of our media will use any opportunity to mock the Faithful. Even 14 still-warm dead bodies won’t stop them from attacking those who offer a heartfelt “thoughts and prayers” sentiment.

    What's Up With the Synod? ^ | 10/12/15 | Laurence England
    Laurence asks out loud, perhaps for the first time, though I bet not the last: Given that you all are clearly being used to further an anti-Christian agenda, perhaps its time to consider shaking the dust off their feet and leaving the Synod Hall. Theyre not going to let you vote? Vote with your feet. Send a message that this bad pope and his cronies arent the whole Church, and that you will not be manipulated to oppose the Faith of Christ. Faithful Bishops, shepherds of Christs flock: LEAVE THE SYNOD! GET OUT OF THE WATER! GET OUT NOW! Theres...

    National Review ^ | 4-1-15 | David French
    The conventional wisdom is that moral opposition to same-sex marriage will eventually evaporate that even orthodox religious communities will learn to accommodate new cultural realities, and those few who dont will ultimately be irrelevant, living on the margins of society. Evangelical churches will cave. The Catholic Church will cave. Jews will cave. In just a few, short years the Christian churches in America will look back at opposition to same-sex marriage with the same kind of shame that Southern Baptists view their segregationist past. That conventional wisdom is garbage. Its based largely on a bigoted, ignorant view of the...

    Duck Dynastys Missy Robertson said there definitely is spiritual warfare at play in some of the criticism and attacks made against the popular, pro-family program and its Bible-Christian patriarch Phil Robertson, remarking that a lot of people want to keep us quiet but were not going to be quiet and were not going to be bullied.
  • Easter or Earth Day?

    04/19/2014 5:32:05 AM PDT · by rktman · 14 replies ^ | 4/19/2014 | Patrice Lewis
    As we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord this weekend, I thought Id pause for a moment and examine how we give honor (ahem) to Mother Earth. After all, in the eyes of some people, Earth Day (April 22) supersedes Easter (April 20) in importance, significance and even worship. I mean no disrespect, of course. But many readers are already familiar with our Christian faith. What they may be less familiar is how we (cough) honor Gaia. You see, green living has come to be associated with Gaia worship. To the annoyance of the enviro-nuts, my family lives a remarkably...

    Archdiocese of Washington ^ | September 21, 2013 | Msgr. Charles Pope
    The Lord Jesus gives a penetrating analysis of the state of the sinner and some very sobering advice to we would-be saints in today’s Gospel. Let’s look at the Gospel in two stages: The Analysis of the Sinner and the Advice to the Saints.I. ANALYSIS OF THE SINNER - The Lord Jesus describes a sinful steward in the opening lines of this gospel. Let’s look at the description:A. DELUSION (of the sinner)- Jesus said to his disciples, “A rich man had a steward – Notice he is called a steward not an owner. God is the owner of everything, we...
  • The Worcester Diocese should have held onto this faithful priest

    La Salette Journey ^ | July 1, 2012 | Paul Melanson
    Some years ago, a faithful and dedicated priest decided to leave the Diocese of Worcester and become a Chaplain for the United States Army. During a conversation back in 2000, this priest-friend told me that he had had enough of the nonsense within the diocese. This was after he presided over a graveside service for my father. This same faithful priest has a letter in this week's "Catholic" [when they feel like it] Free Press. As usual, it is an excellent letter. But then, this priest reads the life of Jesus Christ. The letter is entitled "Choose life and love,...

    "Rick Perry Will Not Depart From His Conservative Record or Path" - The Real Record, The Real Man Musings of a Rick Perry supporter... I dont think the American people know Gov. Rick Perry. He burst onto the national stage and seemed like a Texan, okay, a politician with some nerve, some courage, some outspokenness, who was taking on the sacred cows and telling it like it is. But the debates reversed that image...the early ones. Then there are the lies...oh so many, many MANY lies about him. Because of them, people might be forgiven for their confusion, for not...

    Texas Gov. Rick Perry, whom some pundits had written off as the GOP's nominee, may find a second coming in Iowa, if new poll data holds up. As Mitt Romney's campaign has suffered a startling decline in recent weeks, only to see Newt Gingrich eclipse the former Massachusetts governor's front-runner status, the battle for the Iowa caucuses set for Jan. 3 has become a wide-open race. New survey data prepared for the Perry campaign and shared by a source close within the campaign shows that the Texas governor may be poised to do much better in next months Iowa caucuses...

    Investors Business Daily ^ | November 19, 2011 | Andrew Malcolm
    Anita Perry, the 59-year-old wife of Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry, has been very actively campaigning for him on her own all fall. Now, she's taken on a new assignment. Mrs. Perry has launched an online drive to recruit hundreds of volunteers for what she calls the Perry Strike Force. This would consist of Perry fans who would travel to Iowa and work across the state Jan. 2-4, getting out Perry caucus-goers to the hundreds of meeting sites on the evening of Jan. 3. (Don't worry, the BCS Championship Game is not until Jan. 9 this time.) "With over 1,700...

    From the Charism page at the Sisters' website. Our Charism The foundress of our Community one day heard in her heart the words of Our Lord, My people do not know Me. Those who were to give witness to Me no longer do so. With these words she also felt the deep sadness in the heart of Our Lord Who has been left alone and abandoned by so many of His specially chosen ones. From that time on she felt called to give explicit witness to the reality of the living God and to do all that she could to...

    Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." Matthew 28:16-20 Immediately before Jesus...

    As we read in Seven Years to the Day (Part 2), Almighty God has determined 70 Weeks or 490 years for the nation of Israel: 1) To finish the transgression; 2) To make an end of sins; 3) To make reconciliation (atonement) for iniquity. These events have been fulfilled. The remaining events which will be fulfilled in the the last week of the 70 will be; 4) To bring in everlasting righteousness; 5) To seal up the vision and prophecy; and 6) To anoint the most holy place (Daniel 9:24). This last week of 7 years (the 70th Week of...
  • Why social conservatives should support Mitt Romney for president.

    James Bopp Jr. on Mitt Romney ^ | 2/24/07 | Sevenbak
    The Best Choice Is Also a Good Choice Why social conservatives should support Mitt Romney for president. By James Bopp Jr. It would be foolish to imagine that social conservatism can achieve any significant success without a president who strongly supports social conservative positions. The reason for this lies primarily in the presidents power to appoint judges. Social policy in America has been largely shaped by the federal judiciary, which has imposed an unrelenting liberal agenda on a reluctant people. The law, as it concerns the issues of abortion, religious freedom, pornography, gay rights, sexual license, family, and marriage, has...

    The bipartisan glow that swathed the state Capitol this year may give way to partisan rancor, as combative conservative Michael Villines prepares to lead Assembly Republicans in the next legislative session, political observers say. Villines, a Clovis Republican who was raised in San Jose, seized power by riding the support of conservative lawmakers, who rejected the more accommodating leadership of former minority leader, San Diego Assemblyman George Plescia. But the move may end up marginalizing the Republican caucus. "They've gone for a guy who was in (Gov. Arnold) Schwarzenegger's face in opposing the bond measures, and rendered themselves a little...

    LOS ANGELES -- Reminding his wide-ranging Republican base of the alternative this election year, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger used his state GOP convention speech Saturday to attack Democratic challenger Phil Angelides for proposing tax increases and opposing the state's use of National Guard troops along the U.S.-Mexico border. In his 19-minute speech at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza, the governor called for charter schools and English-language instruction for immigrants while engaging the luncheon crowd in a chorus of "noes" in opposition to big government. Schwarzenegger took credit for reducing the state's budget deficit and creating new jobs since becoming governor in...
