    he notion that Judge Amy Coney Barrett of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit will be President Trump’s third lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court has the liberal progressives in cardiac arrest. They threaten Trump with another impeachment for doing what the Constitution allows him to do – appoint Supreme Court justices and lower court judges (he has done 300 so far) up to the very last second before he leaves office, assuming he is not reelected. But it looks increasingly likely that he will be, particularly if he makes such a stellar pick. Trump has promised...

    27 doctors to German bishops: ‘No medical reasons for a ban of Communion on the tongue’ When opening one's mouth, one tends to breathe in, rather than out, so that the dispersion of droplets is unlikely.

    The Federalist ^ | September 15, 2020 | Daniel Maria Klimek
    Father Martin's statements — even those covered under the guise of 'objectivity' — appear to be more faithful to a political agenda than to Catholic teaching. In several tweets pertaining to faithful voting for Catholics, the popular Jesuit priest and author Fr. James Martin, S.J., who offered prayers during the 2020 Democratic National Convention, presents a distorted view of Catholic moral teaching about voting while creating unnecessary confusion for the faithful.Among the most misleading impressions Martin promulgates is posting an out-of-context quote from Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, in which the former head of the CDF (and current pope emeritus) articulated: “When...

    The US bishops’ one-sided ‘dialogue’ with Joe Biden Another presidential campaign is upon us, and so it’s time for another round of feisty debate on the time-worn topic: Should Joe Biden be allowed to receive Communion? That debate, as practiced by American Catholics, was not always about Biden specifically. There was John Kerry before him, and Geraldine Ferraro behind that, and the same question has been asked regarding Nancy Pelosi and the late Ted Kennedy and many other Catholic politicians. But Biden himself has been the main topic at least since 2008. That year, you may recall, Biden was candidate...

It’s like a form of intellectual nudism.

    "As a priest in the Orthodox Church, it is my duty to ban members of Black Lives Matter from receiving Communion. I will not desecrate the precious Body and Blood of Christ, by allowing it to touch the unclean lips of those who are members of that satanic organization. If they want to take communion, they will have to find some other church." "Members of Black Lives Matter need to get on their knees, and ask forgiveness for their participation in this godless movement." Black Lives Matter is a terrorist, Marxist organization which promotes abortion and homosexuality. This wicked group...
