    Novus Ordo Watch ^ | October 14, AD 2018 | Editor
    ...We begin, therefore, with a little “Litany to Saint Paul VI”, a list of 50 outrageous titles that can justly be applied to this new anti-saint. The idea, of course, is not to ask anyone to use this for an actual litany (God forbid!), but rather to point out vividly the absurdity of taking this wicked man for a saint of the Catholic Church. “St.” Paul VI was the… destroyer of the sacraments architect of the Novus Ordo Missae deformer of the Curia captain of collegiality councilor of heresy admirer of false religions cheerleader for the United Nations patron of...

    SEATTLE, WA—After reading several chapters from the gospels over the weekend, local progressive believer Wendy Butler reportedly published a Patheos blog post in which she criticized Jesus of Nazareth for “not being very Christlike.” The blog post took Jesus to task for His “unloving and problematic” teachings. “He devotes entire sections of His sermons to ranting about archaic religious concepts like hell and the last judgment instead of just coming alongside the marginalized and affirming their sins,” Butler said. “Very little of what He did on earth I would describe as life-giving. Frankly, I do a better job of being...

    ROME — Retaliating against a remarkable campaign from within the church to force the ouster of Pope Francis, the Vatican’s former spokesman issued a statement on Sunday night questioning the credibility of [Vigano]. Vatican officials and the pope said that he had ambushed Francis in 2015 by setting up a private meeting with Kim Davis, who became a conservative celebrity by refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses. [snipperoo] On Sunday, Father Lombardi issued a joint statement with [Francis-spox] Rev. Thomas Rosica, noting that Viganò had spoken the night before the meeting (with Kim Davis) with the pope and his collaborators...

    LIFE NEWS ^ | August 10, 2018 | Steven Ertelt
    Actress Debra Messing of “Will and Grace” fame apparently believes that Christians should be forced to fund abortions. Yesterday Messing sent out a tweet blasting Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. In her tweet she defended abortion and blasted Brett Kavanaugh’s record as leading pro-abortion groups like Planned Parenthood and others have been doing recently. But the actress went a step further. Included in her tweet was a comment that the Christian views of employers should not supersede supposed health care rights. Her tweet is a reference to the landmark Supreme Court decision regarding Hobby Lobby. That’s the Christian-owned business that...

    In a move which has stunned seasoned Vaticanologists the Sacred Congregation for the Causes of the Saints has begun an unprecedented procedure for the group canonisation of all those Popes, from Pius VII onwards, who have not already been canonised. In accordance with United Nations equality guidelines, this unique process will ensure strict parity among deceased Popes.Said a spokesperson, at the lively press conference which followed the announcement: ‘Pope Francis believes that all previous Popes deserve to be raised to the altars of the Church, but we explained to him that some Popes – especially of the Renaissance period...

In a Nov. 9 statement released by the Unholy See’s Press Office, spokesman Greg Burke explained the move on the grounds that “the Holy See cannot contribute to an activity that clearly damages the health of people”, according to a report published by...

    Officials attempted to stop the spread of CatholicismDETROIT (ChurchMilitant.com) - British anti-Catholic laws have resulted in the compilation of a searchable ancestry database of hundreds of thousands of Catholics. Launched on October 7, the Catholic Family History Society provides resources and help for Roman Catholics to trace their ancestry. So far, the records of about 275,000 English, French, Dutch, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Welsh, Scottish and Irish Catholics living in England from 1607–1840 have been transcribed into a searchable database. Brother Rory Higgins, an Australian monk, compiled the records and named the database after his mother. The Margaret Higgins Database is...
