    Outspoken feminist Camille Paglia says the current generation of hyper-sensitive, safety-seeking college students was gradually created by the downward spiral of public education that has left them ignorant of history and geography and focused, instead, on viewing America as an evil nation. (snip) Paglia said: What has happened is these young people now getting to college have no sense of history of any kind. No sense of history. No world geography. No sense of the violence and the barbarities of history. So, they think that the whole world has always been like this, a kind of nice, comfortable world where...

    The earthquake that has changed the face of the Pontifical Academy for Life has also struck the institute for studies on marriage and the family created by John Paul II and first headed by the theologian and then cardinal Carlo Caffarra. As of today this historic institute has been eliminated and replaced with another institute, with a different name.As is in fact stated in article 1 of the motu proprio “Summa Familiae Cura” published this morning, with which Pope Francis “has put his signature” to the transformation:“With the present motu proprio I institute the John Paul II Pontifical Theological Institute...

    In a recent interview, Cardinal Vincenzo Paglia denounced rumors that the revamped Pontifical Academy for Life will reinterpret Humanae Vitae. “It’s a totally false opinion,” Paglia told interviewer Mirosław Tykfer of Przewodnik Katolicki, a Polish Catholic magazine. “Whoever [repeats] it should go ask forgiveness because he speaks a falsehood.” Nevertheless, the controversial cardinal has introduced several innovations to the Academy for Life, including at least one pro-abortion member and a new focus on the environment, mass migration, economic oppression, slavery, and the threat of nuclear war. When Father Tykfer doubted that this “broadening” would help better defend life from its conception...

    The archbishop tasked with leading the Vatican’s pro-life academy says the Pope’s controversial teaching document on marriage opens Holy Communion to those in public grave sin. Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia says Amoris Laetitia calls for “integration” of those in “irregular situations,” including “sacramental integration.” The archbishop, who serves as Grand Chancellor of the St. John Paul II Pontifical Institute for the Study of Marriage and Family, famously commissioned a homoerotic painting containing his likeness for his former cathedral. Asked in a recent email interview with the Diocese of Charleston newspaper The Catholic Miscellany to describe what Pope Francis’s frequently used concept...

    What's Going on in Bergoglio's Pontifical Academy for Life Anyway? Edit: Randy Engel sent this to our e-mail. Hope we can help expose this manifest evil. Dear Friends – Is there no end to the anti-life scandals at Pontifical Academy for Life?  Or is it Death? Karolinska Institute is NOT a “Medical University.” It’s a Big Auschwitz  for unborn children.   In the selection of its members, the Vatican must also consider the institution that the member represents. In the case of Katarina Le Blanc that institution is the Karolinska Institute – one of the world’s foremost promoters of abortion and abortifacients. The Institute...

    An American canon lawyer and Catholic priest has criticized a Vatican archbishop for saying that Christian values do not need to be defended because “they defend themselves.” "I am puzzled that Archbishop Paglia would say 'I am so certain of the power of Christian values that I don’t feel a need to defend them, they defend themselves.' This is a remarkable statement, especially coming from a shepherd of the Church whose duties include proclaiming the Church's teaching ‘in season and out of season,’” Fr. Gerald Murray, pastor of the Church of the Holy Family in New York City, told LifeSiteNews....

    During an interview on Sean Hannity’s radio show yesterday, Camille Paglia destroyed Democrats, the media and journalists for their collusion and bias against Republicans and President Trump. “It’s obscene,” Pagilia said. “It’s outrageous, OK? It shows that the Democrats are nothing now but words and fantasy and hallucination and Hollywood. There’s no journalism left. What’s happened to The New York Times? What’s happened to the major networks? It’s an outrage.” Paglia called what she said the Democratic Party had done to journalism “absolutely grotesque” and warned it would take decades to recover. “I’m a professor of media studies, in addition...

    In a wide-ranging interview Paglia talks about Donald Trump's successes, how Chuck Schumer emboldened the "resistance," why the left can't condemn Islamist terrorism, and "the cold biological truth that sex changes are impossible." Camille Paglia is one America's smartest and most fearless writers. Like Elvis, she's the kind of superstar who really needs no introduction—though it is worth pointing out that Pantheon has just published a collection of her essays on sex, gender, and feminism, titled Free Women, Free Men. It's fantastic and if you love her work, it's must-reading. (And there's another collection due out in the Fall of...

    IMPORTANT REPOST: The true enemies of the Church are bad Catholics It is a well-known account. Sister Marie Bernarde (Bernadette) Soubirous is in the convent of the Sisters of Charity in Nevers, it is 1870, war is raging throughout northern France as the Prussian-led German armies march towards Paris. The first printed version of the account,* published while she was still living, is the following. A visitor came to Bernadette at that time and made her the following questions: - Did you receive, in the grotto of Lourdes, or after then, any revelations related to the future and fate of...

    Pope Francis' Academy for Life, newly appointed on Tuesday, is more accommodating on subjects such as artificial contraception, in vitro fertilization, so called sexual orientation, homosexualism, passive euthanasia and other delicate topics, writes the Vaticanista Sandro Magister. According to him, those who take their inspiration from Saint John Paul II or Benedict XVI will not have - quote - "an easy life" with these changes. For Magister the most emblematic new appointee is Father Maurizio Chiodi, who teaches moral theology in Bergamo, Italy. Chiodi is an open critic of Humanae Vitae, the encyclical of Paul VI that rejects artificial contraception,...

    "She is a completely hollow woman," Camille Paglia said, reflecting on Hillary Clinton's disastrous bid for the presidency six months after the former secretary of state fell to Donald Trump. In an interview with the Washington Examiner on Tuesday, Paglia, who voted for Jill Stein in November, recalled red flags from the earliest days of Clinton's candidacy, pointing to her dependence upon artificial policy positions carefully manufactured in Brooklyn with the help of polls and focus groups. "Hillary, when she first declared that she was a candidate," the bestselling author explained, "they asked her about her policies... and she refused...

    New York Times columnist Frank Bruni moderates a 'Times Talks' discussion between legendary feminist Camille Paglia and 'Watch What Happens Live' host Andy Cohen about life in the Trump era. Paglia says Bruni's newspaper and the Democratic Party still have "soul searching" left to do about why they called 2016 wrong. "It is incumbent upon the defeated party to pull itself together, or else we're going to get the reelection of the present administration," she said. "I didn't take him seriously at all," she said about the early days of the Trump campaign. "And then, shortly after the very first...

    History moves in cycles. The plague of political correctness and assaults on free speech that erupted in the 1980s and were beaten back in the 1990s have returned with a vengeance. In the United States, the universities as well as the mainstream media are currently patrolled by well-meaning but ruthless thought police, as dogmatic in their views as agents of the Spanish Inquisition. We are plunged once again into an ethical chaos where intolerance masquerades as tolerance and where individual liberty is crushed by the tyranny of the group. The premier principles of my new book, Free Women, Free Men,...

    Controversial feminist and author Camille Paglia slammed Facebook executive Sheryl Sandberg as "insufferably smug," and said her book about women in the workplace was "dishonest." Paglia alleged that Sandberg concealed her "affluent lifestyle" in the book Lean In, according to a Tuesday interview in Broadly. Sandberg's feminism, according to Paglia, reflected the "excessively bourgeois or white middle-class assumptions" undergirding contemporary feminist thought. "I thought her bestselling book, Lean In, was utterly dishonest in failing to acknowledge how the affluent lifestyle of women executives like herself requires a rotating squad of servants and nannies, whom she has carefully kept invisible," Paglia...

    This petition has been created and sponsored by a coalition of Italian pro-life and pro-family groups. BACKGROUND Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, the new head of the Pontifical Academy for Life recently gave remarks expressing unqualified admiration for longtime friend Marco Pannella, one of Italy’s most radical proponents of the culture of death. Speaking about the Italian Radical Party founder, Paglia stated that he was "a man of great spirituality" and that his death was “a great loss, not only for the people of the Radical Party, but also for our country,” among many other glowing statements. Pannella spent his life fighting...
