    Three women pause in prayer as they are consecrated to the Order of Virgins (CNS photo/Joel Breidenbach) The document says it is 'not essential' that a woman should have 'kept her body in perfect continence'The US Association of Consecrated Virgins has said it is “deeply disappointed” at new rules issued by the Vatican that appear to say consecrated virgins need not be virgins.The group has taken issue with section 88 of the new document, which states: “Thus to have kept her body in perfect continence or to have practiced the virtue of chastity in an exemplary way, while of...

    Glorification of Sexual Perversion is War Against Mankind The traditional family is the core of human existence. Heterosexual relationships and marriages came into existence as the guarantee for the future of mankind. The purpose of sex is procreation, and only heterosexual sex results in procreation. The purpose of sex is not transitory “pleasure;” sex is pleasurable so that its purpose—which is continuation of the race—will take place and mankind can go forward into the future. Obsessive or fixated focus on sexual “pleasures” that are not heterosexual, practiced to the exclusion of heterosexual activities, are perversions. If you’re offended by the...
  • Disney/ABC Should Merge with Starbucks and the NFL

    Disney/ABC, Starbucks, and the NFL should merge, as they are this week’s prime example of how to drive away customers while engaged in absurd CEO virtue signaling. ABC/Disney I never watch television. Its news is a waste of time, with well-groomed, overpaid readers and hokey camera coverage that takes an hour to cover what 10 minutes of a well-written article can better convey. Take the news coverage itself: The EU is falling apart, the talks with North Korea are on and it looks like war will be averted and another country denuclearized, and the Mueller investigation seems more ridiculous than...
  • Gay male prostitute outs dozens of active homosexual priests to Vatican in 1200-page dossier

    A scandal now sending shockwaves through the Catholic Church erupted last week when a gay male prostitute produced a massive dossier outing scores of priests who allegedly lead a double life of both ordained minister and homosexual sex-fiend. The dossier included seminarians as well.  The author of the dossier, gay “escort” Francesco Mangiacapra, said he wrote the report because he could no longer stand the “hypocrisy” of the many priests he serviced. The 1,200-page dossier, replete with explicit WhatsApp messages, erotic photos, and lurid descriptions of priests involved in gay sexual activity and drug use, was forwarded to the Vatican...

    Several months back Father Hugh Somerville-Knapman, OSB wrote a must read article over at his blog, Dominus mihi adjutor. For those not familiar with Fr. Hugh, a Benedictine monk and priest of Douai Abbey in Berkshire, U.K., he is no liturgical bomb thrower. His arguments are always well reasoned and thoughtful, which is why it’s worth revisiting. “Vale Vatican II: Moving On” verbalizes what a growing number of the faithful are finally coming to grips with. In the words of Fr. Hugh: “it is time now to let go of the Council.” While I encourage everyone to read the full article, there are...

    I’m approaching my 82nd birthday, and my daughter will occasionally suggest that modernity is perplexing to me because I’m from prehistoric times. As such, it points to one of the unavoidable problems of youth—namely, the temptation to think that today’s behavioral standards have always been. Let’s look at a few of the differences between yesteryear and today. One of those differences is the treatment of women. There are awesome physical strength differences between men and women. To create and maintain civil relationships between the sexes is to drum into boys, starting from very young ages, that they are not to...

    The latest casualties in the Pervnado of the last few months, John Conyers and Al Franken, appear to be products of the Radical Left's fear that Roy Moore is going to win his special election in Alabama, despite what appear to credible allegations of harassment against Moore. The Radical Lefts new narrative seems to be, "We supported these guys until we learned that they were bad people. Now you're going to elect this creep even though you know about his past? Shame!" What our Lefty pals seem to misunderstand is that our response is simple, "Yes we know. And f***...

    It’s been a long time coming, but the bill is coming due for the hip and progressive sexual revolution in America. The sexual abuse and harassment sweepstakes we are witnessing today is the direct result of our society deciding that Christian morality is narrow, repressive, and above all, not cool. If it feels good do it. Have whatever sexual relationships you want, when you want, with whoever you want. That is and has been the prevailing societal view for decades, and it permeates our music, art, film, literature, social media, and conversations. There is nothing right or wrong. Oh, sure,...

    RUSH: I want to address something here seriously. Nancy Pelosi, predictably, blamed all of this on Trump. Grab sound bite 23. I want you to hear it again. Just 15 seconds. After suggesting that Conyers should, she realized she stepped in it. She realized that’s a very, very controversial thing to do, so she had to try to soften it at the end of the presser. PELOSI: There’s a new day. And the courage of the women coming forward is something that is making a big difference. But also the attitude in the country, which I think some of it...

    President Trump's son sounded off on the current state of the Democratic party on Wednesday during a FOX News appearance with Sean Hannity. In discussing Democratic opposition to President Trump, the 45th president's son told Hannity he has "never seen hatred like this." "To me, they're not even people," Eric Trump told the conservative host. "It's so, so sad. Morality is just gone. Morals have flown out the window." "You see the Democratic Party — they're imploding," the Trump son continued. "They're imploding. They're imploding. They have no message!" The executive vice president of the Trump Organization went on to...

    College-aged millennials today are far more likely than the general population to be religiously unaffiliated. This is true when they are compared to previous generations as well. In fact, the Pew Research Center documents that millennials are the least outwardly religious American generation, where “one in four are unaffiliated with any religion, far more than the share of older adults when they were ages 18 to 29.” Just over 60 percent of millennials say that Christianity is “judgmental,” and 64 percent say that “anti-gay” best describes most churches today. In ministry circles, it has long been reported that of youth...

    New York Times ^ | April 21, 2017 | David Brooks
    Between 1935 and 1975, Will and Ariel Durant published a series of volumes that together were known as “The Story of Civilization.” They basically told human history (mostly Western history) as an accumulation of great ideas and innovations, from the Egyptians, through Athens, Magna Carta, the Age of Faith, the Renaissance and the Declaration of the Rights of Man. The series was phenomenally successful, selling over two million copies. That series encapsulated the Western civilization narrative that people, at least in Europe and North America, used for most of the past few centuries to explain their place in the world...

    A teenage boy was told by school leaders that he had to “tolerate” undressing in front of a female student and to make it as “natural” as possible, according to a blockbuster lawsuit filed in a Pennsylvania federal district court.The lawsuit, filed Tuesday by Alliance Defending Freedom and Independence Law Center, alleges the Boyertown Area School District shamed the teenage boy and violated his personal privacy. They are also alleging sexual harassment. “No school should rob any student of this legally protected personal privacy,” ILC attorney Randall Wenger said. “We trust that our children won’t be forced into emotionally vulnerable situations like...

    Liberals constantly stake a claim to some religion-free moral high ground, which is laughable considering liberalism’s ideology is immoral at its core. Since November of last year, leftists have been too blinded by inane hatred for Trump to see the irony. Sure, there are liberals out there who lead decent lives and you can find some on the other side who don’t. Difference is, though, the longer a liberal remains liberal, the harder it is for them to see the light...the truth…that all their ideology does is cover them with a cloak of morality. The false sense of morality gives...

    Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. “Even presidents have private lives. It is time to stop the pursuit of personal destruction and the prying into private lives and get on with our national life,” President Clinton whined. It was the late hot summer of ’98 and the man dubbed “Slick Willie,” the nickname he claimed to dislike the most, was facing the prospect of becoming the first president to be successfully impeached. These days the Clintons seem to have changed their minds about whether presidents should have...

    Modesty and Beach Volleyball Msgr. Charles Pope • August 14, 2016 • One of the less edifying aspects of the Summer Olympics in Rio is the attire of the women’s beach volleyball players from Western countries. Most of the women wear a tiny bikini with the bottom being especially tiny. (I do not show a picture here because I deem it immodest to do so. Instead, I show a picture of some of the men, whose attire I mention below.) Embed from Getty Images  Frankly, playing volleyball in a tiny bikini seems quite unnecessary. I would argue that it...

    The President of the United States went to the memorial service for the Dallas police officers gunned down while protecting and serving. Taking the podium, the President quoted scripture, mourned the dead, then turned decidedly partisan. The president claimed it is easier for kids to buy guns than either computers or books. The only people who say such things are people who have never tried to buy guns. It is simply not true. The problem is not that the president said it, but that the president used a nonpartisan memorial service for dead police officers to lie in the name...

    I don't think Comey's presser heralds the end of law in the U.S., but he surely did put another nail in the coffin. Like the Supreme Court rulings on abortion and marriage, few should be surprised at this outcome. America has been on a long ugly road when it comes to law and justice, reason and logic, morality and truth.

    Is It Ever Right to Bend the Law? Msgr. Charles Pope • May 4, 2016 • Our relationship with God’s law is complex and we don’t often get it right. When it comes to God’s law we cannot forget that it is personal. That is, it is given to us by a loving God who wants to save us. Therefore, it is important to know both the law and the lawgiver, who is God.In the Deuteronomic code, each law is often followed by the phrase “I am the Lord.” It is as if the Lord is saying, “This is...

    This is the second in a series of essays on the duty of Christians in civic affairs, adapted from Kevin Kookogey’s weekly radio address and podcasts at advancingchurch.com. This week we begin our examination of questions from listeners. 1. Christians should be informed about politics, but should they really determine which political side is correct? How can one claim that it is important for Christians to be informed about politics if the conclusion one draws from the information is deemed irrelevant or off limits? It is, after all, conclusions that lead one to act and to act is to take...
