    Homofascist Tyranny The tyranny of homofascism must be opposed By Michael Voris The Vortex April 9, 2014 Grab a pen and write the word down as quickly as you can and start using it everywhere the word is .. homofascists .. as in homofascism. A working definition you ask? Hows this for starters? Homofascism a way of organizing a society in which homosexualists impose their agenda with which no one is allowed to disagree or have any appeal to the contrary without being subjected to severe consequences of ridicule, slander, libel, fines, public demonstrations, distortions, denial of free...

    THE TENTH CRUSADE ^ | 3/19/14 | THE TENTH CRUSADE
    How's this for irony - while Mike has finally won the admiration of Mark Sheat, the Vortex trilogy has given Shea the ammunition to call faithful Catholics (including yours truly) Francis haters, insane reactionaries and kooks committing mortal sins against charity. (I am not sending traffic to his blog so he can earn money off of his post) By refusing to distinguish sedevacanists from honorable and faithful Catholics, that is quite a service Mike has done for faithful Catholics. Oh well. No good deed goes unpunished. I watched the last Vortex which suggested that we all act like nothing is...

    The Leading Edge ^ | September 5, 2013 | Brendan Malone
    If you’re a Catholic, you’ve got an Internet connection or a Facebook page, and you’re a fan of Catholic online content, then there’s probably a good chance that you’ve come across at least one or two videos produced by Michael Voris. He’s a man serious about what he does, as evidenced by his passionate expressions of religious fervor. And ‘his star is on the rise’ – as they would say in the entertainment business – as evidenced by the growing number of hits his videos are attracting on YouTube, etc.However, it’s not just his viewership that is increasing, but so...

    Patheos ^ | September 3, 2013 | Kathy Schiffer
    Its been quite a belligerent weekend in the Catholic blogosphere, hasnt it? First there was the Catholic Answers brouhaha, which was started in part by my post regarding the financial crisis looming at that great Catholic apologetics apostolate. Then there was Michael Voris, chest thumping, publishing the salaries of well known Catholic media personalities, then castigating them for earning wages which are commensurate with their professional achievement and marketplace value, and which are sufficient to support their families. Two seemingly unrelated dust-ups, but with a common element: In both cases the flames of discord were fanned by traditional Catholics. Its...

    Ars orandi ^ | August 31, 2013 | David Werling
    Fr. Dwight Longenecker, in a fit of charity seldom demonstrated by the Internet Sanhedrin, recently asked: “Do we need Michael Voris?” In the lead up to the US presidential election, I watched quite a bit of Michael Voris, but ever since the election of Pope Francis, I haven’t been visiting The Vortex very often. Mr. Voris has a lot of interesting things to say, but it is mostly the same complaint about the bishops, and never seems willing to go to the heart of the matter. In fact, I spend more time on the Catholic Answers forum than I do...

    Biblical Evidence for Catholicism ^ | August 31, 2013 | Dave Armstrong
    Isn't that a fascinating bit of information? I thought it might be of interest to my readers, seeing that Voris is now blasting Catholic Answers ("CA") regularly: his latest stunt (video of 8-29-13) being a cynical, derisive "expose" of the salaries made by several persons at CA (which -- I should note -- was already public information, since it is a non-profit corporation). Now he's making out that CA has taken a huge hit because they dared to do two shows on radical Catholic reactionaries, and he claims this is part of the reason why they are doing a big...

    Patheos ^ | August 30, 2013 | Dwight Longnecker
    Until now I have kept mum about the controversial self appointed prophet Michael Voris. However, yesterday I viewed his latest video in which he exposes the salaries of people he disparagingly calls professional Catholics. He calls out Catholic radio host Al Kresta, author and founder of the apologetics apostolate Karl Keating and his employees Tim Staples and Jimmy Akin. He accuses them of taking exorbitant salaries, then proclaims that his salary is only $40,000.00. Its not necessarily a bad thing to hold people accountable and to make sure our ministries are financially sound and communications are transparent. However, there are...

    Christifidelis Laicus ^ | September 1, 2013 | John Gerardi
    I’ve long been a defender of Michael Voris.  And I hate it. What do I mean?  Well, I mean this: Michael Voris is the representative of a certain branch of Catholic opinion, one to which I belong.  He is a part of the post-Summorum Pontificum, neo-traditionalist wing of the Church: we love the traditional Mass and traditional Catholic liturgical/disciplinary practices, Pope Benedict XVI, and we are slightly suspicious of Vatican II while still endorsing Benedict’s Hermeneutic of Continuity.  He is also a gadfly who is not afraid to criticize the American bishops, about whom there is much that merits criticism.Voris and...

    Fighting Irish Thomas ^ | 4-6-13 | Tom O'Toole
    Homosexuality refers to relations between men or between women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction toward persons of the same sex. It has taken a great variety of forms through the centuries and in different cultures. Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained. Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity, tradition has always declared that homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered. They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can...

    In her article, "How to Speak About Homosexuality," (and subsequent follow-up, "What I Mean By Acceptance"), former gay-turned-committed-Catholic author Melinda Selmys makes first one, then two attempts to trash and bash Michael Voris FBI (Faith Based Investigation) into Homosexuality, with mixedor more accuratelymixed-up results. And here, the fault is not so much Selmys', who admits her journey from "sin" and "confusion" to Truth and Catholicism is still filled with "doubts, depression, self-loathing, and intellectual pride," but with First Things, who offers up the still-evolving Melinda as the authentic voice of Catholic/gay evangelization without the brash-but-accurate corrections of someone like Mike....

    Hello everyone and welcome to The Vortex where lies and falsehoods are trapped and exposed. Im Michael Voris. A big question has erupted lately around the question of how should Catholics vote. The choice for faithful Catholics isnt between Obama and Romney. The idea of voting for Obama is simply off the table. No the choice is between voting for Romney or not. Under the or not category that could mean either just not voting for president at all, voting for a 3rd party guy or writing someone in. Now immediately the knee jerk and valid response on the...

    Michael Voris is the favourite talking head of the Catholic Taliban, that motley crew of traditionalists who believe in way-out stuff like abortion is evil and Jesus rose on the third day. He runs his own online TV station in Michigan and has hair so unreal it could be miraculous. In an age when the average priest seems to get the life and the theology sucked out of him at seminary, Voris speaks with clarity and humour. This is the man who dismissed liberal nuns as Marxists embracing lesbianism, yoga and witchcraft. He became a viral sensation after...

    This may be one of the more disturbing things I have ever seen. This video is shown to people, and even more frightening, many are likely inspired by it. This guy basically says that the problem with our country is that "everyone can vote", both ignorant know-nothings who only care about themselves(aka people who support abortion, gay marriage, etc), and informed people(aka people who agree with his/the organizations particular views) and this is all presented in such a way as if it is incontrovertible. as if having an opinion that a woman has a right to choose or that homosexuality...

I don't know what the issue is on any of this stuff, said Voris, who is currently in Spain promoting his unofficial No Bull in Madrid meetings during World Youth Day.

    If you are lucky, you may have missed the current debate rippling through the Catholic interwebs. Actually, it is a debate that comes up from time time to time, this time it just happens to involve video provocateur Michael Voris. Voris contributes to the website RealCatholicTv.com. He produces several videos a week talking about issues related to faith, politics, and culture. No big deal, lots of us speak or write about these subjects every day. What makes Voris a hot topic of debate is mostly style and occasionally a little substance. Having only watched a handful of Voris videos, I...

The meeting is pretty much open to any Catholic blogger, but the fact that there are only 150 seats in the conference hall and that the Vatican is looking for...

    The Diocese of Scranton and Marywood University refused to host a conservative Catholic speaker this weekend after the organizations determined that he had expressed views at odds with the school's and church's values, they said on Thursday. Michael Voris, who produces television and radio shows about Catholic issues, was scheduled to speak at two events Saturday arranged by a Harveys Lake couple at Marywood and Our Lady of Victory Catholic church in Harveys Lake. After Marywood canceled the event, titled "Living Catholicism Radically," it was to be relocated to the diocese's St. Clare/St. Paul Elementary School before the diocese also...

    This Sunday, the USCCB will ask you to give your hard-earned money to the Catholic Campaign for Human Development, a charitable fund which has in the past been used to fund anti-life, pro-homosexual and pro-prostitution groups. Before donating money to this appeal, please take a few minutes to watch this video. As Catholics, we should always give alms to the less fortunate but we should ensure our money is being spent responsibly and never on moral evils such as contraception, abortion, or the promotion of the homosexual agenda.
