    Dublin (AFP) - Pope Francis "begged for God's forgiveness" on Sunday for multiple abuse scandals within the Irish church but faced accusations by a former Vatican official that he had personally ignored allegations against senior clergy. In front of 45,000 supporters at the rain-soaked Knock shrine in the west of Ireland, the pope sought forgiveness over the "open wound" of the church's sexual abuse scandal and demanded "firm and decisive" measures to find "truth and justice". At a later Mass to tens of thousands of flag-waving worshippers at Dublin's Phoenix Park, the showpiece event of the two-day visit to the...

    Sexual misconduct is as old as sin, but the avalanche of sexual misconduct that has come to light in recent weeks is almost too much to bear. These grievous revelations of sin have occurred in churches, in denominational ministries, and even in our seminaries. We thought this was a Roman Catholic problem. The unbiblical requirement of priestly celibacy and the organized conspiracy of silence within the hierarchy helped to explain the cesspool of child sex abuse that has robbed the Roman Catholic Church of so much of its moral authority. When people said that Evangelicals had a similar crisis coming,...
  • Radical Prophet -David Horowitz's "The Black Book of the American Left Vol.9- Ruling Ideas"

    In 1987, not long after David Horowitz had completed his transition from ’60s radical to ’80s conservative, he received a letter from an ex-comrade. They’d just had a political argument over the phone, and she wanted to close the conversation with a summary of his renunciation of the hard Left. They had both been Red Diaper babies, classmates at the Sunnyside Progressive School, and children of members of a Communist enclave in Queens. Now, her companion of the barricades had decided to back “the vile policies of Ronald Reagan.” Why? She spends one paragraph clarifying her own position relative to...

    An art gallery in Portland, Oregon, has removed a graphic window illustration of President Trump being threatened with a bloody knife at his throat after an angry outcry. The One Grand Gallery took down the image entitled “F*** Trump” Tuesday in response to complaints, threats and a request from the landlord, as reported by Fox12. “The same people offended over a ‘death threat’ are the same people upholding death threats & violence. Irony,” said the gallery in a Tuesday post on Facebook.

    A building in Santa Cruz, Calif., is being converted into a worship space and public brewery by a pro-gay church that plans to donate some of its beer proceeds to Planned Parenthood, according to reports. Members of the Greater Purpose Community Church now meet on Sundays at a food lounge to pray, listen and drink beer, KNTV reports. "There’s nothing in the Bible that says you can't drink alcohol in a responsible manner," Pastor Chris VanHall told the station. Planned Parenthood has offices in the former bookstore VanHall plans to turn into a brewery by next summer, The Santa Cruz...

    Stormy Daniels as the Virgin Mary? “Virgin,” a show of photographs by Nika Nesgoda, opens Thursday at the Spur, the Southampton co-working space and social club. Inspired by Caravaggio, who used a prostitute model for “Death of the Virgin” in 1606, Nesgoda had adult-film actresses Stormy, Tera Patrick (who has since retired from the industry) and other porn stars pose as the Virgin Mother in 2002. “Stormy doesn’t care what other people think of her. She’s a free spirit,” Nesgoda told The Post. “My show’s a playful look at art history. Pornography is art that we deem excessive in a...
  • Christian group kicked off campus for requiring its leaders to be Christian

    Another student-led group is suing a university because the school kicked the group off campus for requiring student leaders to agree with their faith tenets. The University of Iowa told InterVarsity Christian Fellowship they weren’t allowed to hold their meetings on campus because they require their members to hold to specific faith standards and kicked them out — in response, InterVarsity sued. The University of Iowa did the same thing last year with Business Leaders in Christ, or BLinC. This kind of blatant discrimination — one that infringes on religious freedom via the pretense of protecting other kids’ feelings —...

    TAMPA, Florida, August 3, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – “Evil” homosexual bishops set out to “punish, humiliate and blackmail” decent, God-fearing priests if these threaten to blow the whistle on the gay “mafia” within the Roman Catholic church, says a parish priest. In the bulletin and on the website of the Epiphany of Our Lord Roman Catholic Church, Father Edwin Palka does not mince words about the terrible extent of the damage done by what he calls the gay “Lavender Mafia” within the church. His writing offers light on why the sexual abuse crisis within the U.S. church has continued to rage...

    Pope Francis on Thursday declared that capital punishment is "inadmissible" and against Catholic teachings, significantly altering the church's stance on the death penalty. The catechism had previously held that the death penalty could be admissible "if this is the only possible way of effectively defending human lives against the unjust aggressor." Francis immediate predecessors, Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI, had expressed opposition to executions but maintained that they were acceptable in certain circumstances. Pope Francis, however, essentially found that that view was outdated. The shift also represents the latest move by Pope Francis that would appear to...

    The deep-pocketed NRA claims it’s going broke and may soon “be unable to exist” — and blames Gov. Andrew Cuomo for its purported poverty, according to a recent court document that’s part of its lawsuit against the state. The pro-gun lobby — which gave a record $21 million to Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign — said it’s headed to the poorhouse ...

    With the fall of Cardinal McCarrick and news of the grand jury report regarding an investigation of no fewer than 300 sexual predator priests in Pennsylvania dioceses alone, it should be obvious to anyone who is not willfully blind that the “pedophile crisis” of the early 2000s is actually a homosexual crisis involving a veritable invasion of the Church at all levels by active homosexuals. I attended the 2002 “pedophile summit” in Rome as a journalist. During the press event at the North American College, I asked Bishop Wilton Gregory, then head of the USCCB, about the obvious failure to...

    Cardinal "Molester" McCarrick The great awakening is underway.The unmasking of McCarrick exposed the pervasive prelate coverup of homosexual sexual predation in the American Catholic Church. These swarmy power brokers have colluded far too long at the tragic expense of innocent boys and seminarians. For 60 years, Ted McCarrick roamed the halls of seminaries, harassing, raping, and assaulting young males around the world. His brother bishops all knew and they all stayed silent. How fortuitous and revelatory that McCarrick, the Molester would divulge his personal role in the pre-Conclave lobbying effort to elect Jorge Bergoglio as Pope. The notorious lavender...

    “First of all, we are at the end of Christendom,” Bishop Fulton Sheen solemnly said during a television show in 1974. “Now not Christianity, not the Church. Remember what I am saying.” Then he defined what he meant. “Christendom is economic, political, social life as inspired by Christian principles. That is ending — we’ve seen it die. Look at the symptoms: the breakup of the family, divorce, abortion, immorality, general dishonesty.” That was 1974. Today we know it’s even worse with the definition of marriage and gender drawn into the picture. And the crisis within the Church. He reminded that...

    The root of the Catholic Church’s sex abuse crisis is “sin and a retreat from holiness, specifically the holiness of an integral, truly human sexuality,” Bishop Edward Scharfenberger wrote to the priests and seminarians of his diocese. In a letter released by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany on Sunday, Scharfenberger blasted Cardinal Theodore McCarrick without mentioning his name, noting that the abuser prelate engaged in “incestuous” predation toward those in his spiritual care. “No doubt you have been and will be hearing from your people about how shaken and discouraged they are over public revelations of despicable behavior on...

    If I were asked: “Can there be a more despicable cabal of liars, deceivers and Erebusic marplots than liberal white progressives?” My answer would be yes, but not on this earth – the only ones worse are burning in the prosaic netherworld of Lucifer’s eternal abiding place. Some may be thinking: “C’mon Mychal, that’s harsh even by your straightforwardness.” But, let me explain. The emotional, psychological and behavioral damage that progressives have done to blacks cannot be overstated. And just as the greatest trick Satan ever played was convincing people he doesn’t exist, these brutish Mohocks have convinced blacks they...

    In 2003, an American Catholic prelate shared his diagnosis of the roots of the Church’s abuse crisis with a group of lay experts. The problem, he said, traced back to the “psychological immaturity” of many young seminarians, which meant that they couldn’t cope with the rigors of priestly life and acted out sexually as a result. The solution, per this powerful churchman, was to institute better “psychological testing” to sift the wheat from the chaff among would-be priests. The expert group was known as the National Review Board, established by the U.S. bishops conference in 2002 when the crisis first...

    Catholics Have No Obligation to Follow Francis’ Green-Left Agenda - Cardinal Müller Catholics are not obliged to follow Pope Francis’s green-left agenda in opposing fossil fuels and favouring agreements on environmental issues, Cardinal Gerhard Müller has told The Weekend Australian (July 27). Müller is in Sydney to address the Australian Confraternity of Catholic Clergy conference. "We are not a green party", he added, "Environmental policy is nothing to do with faith and morals. Those issues are for politicians and for people to vote for the party they agree with." “Bishops are not scientists, environmental experts or politicians." Müller recommended that...

    If the birds and bees followed Planned Parenthood's new guidelines concerning them, they would eventually have to be put on the endangered species list. The nation's largest provider of abortions has new guidelines out on how to talk about sex to preschoolers. Having made it out of the womb (some against Planned Parenthood's better advice), toddlers are now to be indoctrinated in the ideology of the Gender Deniers that holds that biology has nothing to do with gender. While its earlier guidelines advised telling preschoolers, "Women have breasts, men don't," it's new guidelines suggest saying, "Those are nipples. Everybody has...

    I’ve often wondered at the genesis of the “toxic masculinity” movement and the agenda to emasculate American males. It is obvious to me it did not come naturally, because it is simply not natural, not based on biology or human nature. It is also obvious that it’s being nurtured, promoted and, yes, funded by someone. I have a hunch who it is. I have written a lot about how although the West won the first Cold War battle, communism didn’t go away. It simply metastasized into our universities and media, willing to wait a long time to defeat the United...
