    On April 16, 2018, the administrators of the Facebook group ‘One Million Connected Catholics’ did not publish my post: “How many Catholics today could answer simple questions such as the following? … “Who Decides The Truth?” ( (See below for the complete post.) In the Description for the group ‘One Million Connected Catholics’, we find: “Dan Burke established One Million Connected Catholics. … You can ALWAYS post things from the National Catholic Register and any EWTN News outlet…” “EWTN’s Raymond Arroyo: ‘Good Catholics’ can’t ignore controversy over Pope Francis” (Note: When pasting this document into Free Republic, it seems...

    A number of things have crystallized in the last week, none of them good for the GOPe. First, the latest (foolish) mantra: Trump "was exposed" by Cruzbio in the debate. No such thing. Only Cruzbio fanboys think anyone seriously hurt Trump, let alone stopped his momentum. What continually gets exposed is that no matter WHO Trump hired years ago to build WHATEVER. . . He alone actually hired someone and built something. Please, please Cruzbio, keep hitting that nail. What about Trump's weakness on health care reform? What no one will say is that (as was Obama's design) this is...
  • Evangelization VS the Trilogy of Devils in the Church: Triumphalism, Clericalism and Juridicalism

    How can we evangelize today? Why do only about ten percent of the baptized Catholics go to Sunday Mass regularly? Why are we so preoccupied with the problems in our parishes, such as the tension between the parish and ecclesial movements, instead of being more worried about the ninety percent of the people who do not frequent the parish? There are many fish in the sea! The document on new religious movements (1986) suggests that we look at what is lacking in our parishes so as not to loose more parishioners as well as to attract new people. It is...

    <p>I'm a reporter who covers Target for the Star Tribune and the other day, I got a call from someone who said that an employee at the Target store downtown refused to run his bacon through a scanning machine. He was mighty upset, arguing that the cashier had "no right to work as a cashier at Target" if she wasn't prepared to swipe his groceries.</p>
  • Wars of Religion - a Secular Myth?

    01/03/2005 6:44:43 AM PST · by JFK_Lib · 26 replies · 600+ views
    I know we have all heard about how bad religion is for starting wars. But when you read the details about the wars, it is not surprising to me any more to discover that the real cause was economic or political and the religious aspect was brought in merely to motivate the people to give the war higher priority in their daily lives. Most often the so-called ware would have happened even if there were no religious differences of significance. Foir example Protestant England and Protestant Scotland propbably fought each other just as ferociously and violently as England has fought...

    Why have the war critics been so wrong?Joseph Perkins SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE April 11, 2003 Forgive me for engaging in a little "triumphalism." I'm darn proud of our men and women in uniform. They came, they saw, they kicked Saddam's posterior.In a mere three weeks. And "with less than half the ground forces and two-thirds of the air assets used 12 years ago in Desert Storm," as Vice President Dick Cheney noted this week.As coalition forces mop up in Iraq, the focus turns to the post-war campaign – getting humanitarian aid to the needful Iraqi people; installing an interim...
