    NAPLES, Italy, March 23, 2015 (LifeSiteNews.com) -- For at least the third time in his pontificate Pope Francis has used very strong language to condemn the gender theory, one of the intellectual underpinnings of the ‚ÄėLGBT‚Äô agenda. Speaking Sunday with young people on his voyage to Naples, Italy, Pope Francis spoke of the ‚Äúideological colonization‚ÄĚ of families seen throughout Europe and the West.‚ÄúGender theory is an error of the human mind that leads to so much confusion," he said. ‚ÄúSo the family is under attack.‚ÄĚ As to how to deal with the ‚Äúsecularization‚ÄĚ or the ‚Äúideological colonization,‚ÄĚ the pope said...

    The foundation of Education and the University during the Middle AgesAnti Catholic HistoryIt is the main point of this section to point out some of the contributions which the Catholic Church made specifically in regards to education and the University in the Middle Ages. Before I start this section I think it would be good to point out two simple facts regarding this time period. The first one is simply the fact that much of the history regarding this time period (at least until recent scholarship) was vehemently anti-Catholic which Hilaire Belloc points out in his book Europe and the...

    VATICAN CITY (CNS) -- A donation to the Vatican by a U.S. businessman enabled Pope Benedict XVI to peruse a few pages of the oldest existing copy of the Gospel of St. Luke and one of the oldest copies of the Gospel of St. John. The Catholic businessman, Frank J. Hanna III, and his family were present in the pope's library Jan. 22 when Pope Benedict got his first look at pages from the famous Bodmer Papyrus XIV-XV.

    Pope Francis has again forcefully emphasized the Catholic church's need to be merciful, pointedly asking who Christians that do not allow someone to renter the church community think they are. Speaking Tuesday during his daily homily at the Domus Sanctae Marthae, Francis asked bluntly: "Who are you who shuts the door of your heart to a man, a woman who wants to improve, to return back into the people of God, because the Holy Spirit has stirred his or her heart?" The church, the pontiff said, is "the home of Jesus and Jesus welcomes -- but not only welcomes, [he]...

    Pope Francis launched a fresh attack on economic injustice on Saturday, condemning the "throw-away culture" of globalization and calling for new ways of thinking about poverty, welfare, employment and society. In a speech to the association of Italian cooperative movements, he pointed to the "dizzying rise in unemployment" and the problems that existing welfare systems had in meeting healthcare needs. For those living "at the existential margins" the current social and political system "seems fatally destined to suffocate hope and increase risks and threats," he said.

    Many millions of Catholics around the world were joyous with the naming of a new pope -- a holy man from the Third World no less. Even in choosing his name, Pope Francis is emphasizing a devotion to the poor, and humility in his clothing and manners. The liberal media should be lapping this up. There was an accurate recounting of the global rejoicing, especially in Argentina. There were hopeful words about his pastoral modesty. But as the day came for the pope to be installed, the natural secular liberal nastiness toward the oldest Christian faith bubbled up in demands...

    Palestinian Liberation Theology ExposedPosted By Susan Warner On January 20, 2015 @ 12:15 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage | 3 Comments It is not a secret that Jesus was Jewish.  Reliable scholarly sources validate this incontestable fact.His genealogies are posted in the books of Matthew and Luke. These alone are sufficient to corroborate the authenticity of Jesus’s Jewish lineage.Archeology and historical geography confirm that the regions of Judea and Samaria are the ancient stomping grounds of Jewish heroes. The Romans plowed under the city of Jerusalem, which Hadrian renamed Aelia Capitolina in 135 CE. He subsequently renamed the entire region Syria Palestina....

    Pope Francis is in the news for speaking out on the alleged dangers of man-made Climate Change. Unfortunately, Francis is outside his field in making comments on this topic, and seems to have accepted uncritically the unproven pop-science of the moment. Francis himself is not a climatologist, and no one would expect a Pope to be so. Francis, however, is also not a theologian, (no Doctorate, that is) but was a teacher of literature in Argentina, who went on to become Novice Master, Jesuit Provincial and then Rector of the Jesuit Collegio Maximo, prior to his elevation to the episcopacy....

    Word is now circulating around the Catholic world that conservative hero Gary Sinise, along with Fox News anchor Bret Baier, both publicly professed faithful Catholics, cancelled their appearances at a Legatus Summit at the last minute under pressure from the LGBT crowd. Legatus is the organization of Catholic CEOs founded by pizza billionaire Tom Monaghan to advance the spirituality of Catholic men and women in the higher echelons of American business. The primary work of Legatus and its members is the increased holiness of the members and spreading the gospel within corporate America. Certainly there is a conservative tinge to...
  • Pope Francis says global warming is 'mostly manmade'

    As the United States Senate prepares to vote on a non-binding resolution on whether or not manmade global warming exists, Pope Francis weighed in on the issue with his most extensive and forceful comments on the subject to date. Let's just say that the pope is not aligned with many Senate Republicans, who doubt the reality and threat of manmade global warming, on this issue. Speaking to reporters aboard his plane while flying to Manila from Sri Lanka, Pope Francis said the "majority" of global warming is manmade, which is a view that is consistent with mainstream climate-science findings. ďI...

    Pope Francis is insisting that his concern for the poor and critique of the global economic system isnít some novel, communist-inspired ideology but rather the original and core ďtouchstoneĒ of the Christian faith. Some U.S. conservatives have branded the first Latin American pope a Marxist for his frequent critiques of consumerism and focus on a church ďthat is poor and for the poor.Ē But in an interview contained in a new book, Francis explains that his message is rooted in the Gospel and has been echoed by church fathers since Christianityís first centuries. ďThe Gospel does not condemn the wealthy,...

    Francis ‚ÄėUrbi et Orbi‚Äô Pro-Life Words Censored by Translator According to a source at Priests for Life: Something I wanted to bring to your attention is the address that Pope Francis gave on Christmas day at noon during his ‚ÄúUrbi et Orbi‚ÄĚ (to the city and to the world) blessing. He mentioned the babies in the womb, and his exact words in that section of his address were as follows: ‚ÄúThe Child Jesus. My thoughts turn to all those children today who are killed and ill-treated, be they infants killed in the womb, deprived of that generous love of their...

    He has been called the ďsuperman popeĒ, and it would be hard to deny that Pope Francis has had a good December. Cited by President Barack Obama as a key player in the thawing relations between the US and Cuba, the Argentinian pontiff followed that by lecturing his cardinals on the need to clean up Vatican politics. But can Francis achieve a feat that has so far eluded secular powers and inspire decisive action on climate change? It looks as if he will give it a go. In 2015, the pope will issue a lengthy message on the subject to...

    With the latest crackdown in Cuba showing just how Havana has Ďreadí Obamaís policy shift towards the Castro dictatorship, this new Foreign Affairs article by Victor Gaetan giving some background to the Vaticanís involvement in the deal that was eventually struck makes timely reading. Hereís an extract (my emphasis added): In Cuba, in other words, the church is still strong. Havanaís Cardinal Archbishop Jaime Lucas Ortega y Alamino has followed a strategy of reconciliation on the island, avoiding confrontation with the state while winning more independence to carry out the Churchís religious mission. Under Ortegaís 35-year leadership, the Catholic Church,...
