    Pontifical Academy Rips Faithful Catholic Scientist In response to criticism of pandemic document VATICAN CITY (ChurchMilitant.com) - The Vatican has launched a personal attack on a Catholic scientist after she shredded a pontifical publication for portraying "an earthly utopia without God."Dr. Doyen Nguyen Dr. Doyen Nguyen, an academic physician and moral theologian with specializations in diagnostic hematology and bioethics, slammed the Pontifical Academy for Life's (PAL) document titled "Humana Communitas in the Age of Pandemic: Untimely Meditations on Life's Rebirth" as godless, Christless, churchless, hopeless and faithless. PAL lashed out at her in a tweet, refusing to addressing the scientist-theologian as Dr. Nguyen: "Mrs....

(Lk. 21:25, LSV) We've often discussed the signs in the heavens and the signs on the earth, but it looks like God is even speaking through the sea.  And no doubt, for the Scriptures say: ...because all things were created in Him, those in the heavens, and those on the earth, those visible, and those invisible, whether thrones, whether lordships, whether principalities, whether authorities; all things have been created through Him and for Him...

    With violence in the streets of many of our most prominent cities, there is an underlying sub-theme that is also troubling. Christophobia, which attacks anything Christian, is surely on the march. Perhaps the latest example is the burning of Bibles in recent Portland protests. On Aug. 2, the Washington Examiner noted, "Portland protesters were filmed burning Bibles and the American flag as protests continue in the city for more than two months. Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz responded to a Friday video of people burning what was described as a 'stack of Bibles' on Twitter Saturday, saying, 'This is who...

    To answer this question, we invited Billy Crone, the senior pastor of Sunrise Baptist Church in Las Vegas, Nevada, and founder of Get A Life! Ministries, to our television program Christ in Prophecy. Billy covered a number of sensationalist Bible prophecy topics such as UFOs and the Nephilim. Aliens Unmasked Nathan Jones: Billy, when it comes to sensationalist Bible prophecy, often we’re talking about UFOs. You’ve done a lot of research into UFOs. Can you explain why you approach UFOs so often in your teachings? Billy Crone: UFOs were part of my background when I was involved in the occult...

    Bishops Cave on Aborted Babies Vaccine Oxford COVID-19 researchers use cell lines of healthy female fetus WESTMINSTER, England (ChurchMilitant.com) - Bishops are telling Catholics they have "a prima facie duty to be vaccinated," especially in the case of the coronavirus — even if the COVID-19 vaccine was developed using tissue derived from aborted fetuses. "We believe there is a moral obligation to guarantee the vaccination coverage necessary for the safety of others" and "out of solidarity with others," the Catholic Bishops' Conference of England and Wales (CBCEW) announced in a statement published Thursday. U.S. Bp. Strickland opposes use of aborted fetus...

    We are living in an amazing time, a time foretold within the pages of the bible, and we have been privileged to watch them leap off the pages and into our daily lives. Prophecy is leaping of the pages from the Bible! THE STAGE IS SET…. THE CAST IS IN PLACE…. THE GLOBALISTS SAY ‘NEVER LET A CRISIS GO TO WASTE’! In the words from their own mouths the plan by global elites to force the ‘great reset’, a phrase they themselves have coined and they are using all the events from COVID-19 to the race riots to bring it...

    [Barf Alert] Bishops’ CCHD Bankrolls Climate Change Goal to implement 'Laudato Si' WASHINGTON (ChurchMilitant.com) - The U.S. bishops' dubious charitable agency is funneling a half-million dollars to an activist group battling so-called climate change. (L to R) Bp. David O’Connell and Apb. Thomas Wenski The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) announced Wednesday that its domestic anti-poverty arm, the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD), had approved on June 9 a $500,000 grant to the Direct Action & Research Training Center (DART) for the purpose of supposedly overcoming climate change. Bishop David O'Connell, auxiliary bishop of Los Angeles and chairman of the CCHD subcommittee, declared this was...

    A growing number of places of worship around the world are employing robotic priests, who can recite prayers and even comfort worshippers experiencing spiritual crises Religions around the world are evolving as technology progresses, and now some faiths are relying on "god robots " to spread the good word. Back in the Middle Ages, Christian "robots" of a kind were fashioned to perform the religious pageantry of the Easter and Christmas rituals. In the 16th century, a mechanical monk was created by a Spanish clockmaker that incredibly remains fully functional to this day. The automaton beats his chest and raises...

    First it was pancake syrup and Paw Patrol. Now, even Scrabble isn't safe. You can forget the triple word score on at least 236 "slurs" the North American players association is stripping from the group's lexicon. The goal, these gamers say, is to make the game "friendlier" for all types of people. Of course, no one has seen the official list of "potentially offensive" words -- leaving many to wonder if this new vocabulary is just W-O-K-E. George Orwell used to say that if you control the language, you control the people. And the fringe has certainly taken that advice...

The Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD), the domestic anti-poverty program of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, announced July 22 it had approved a $500,000 national grant to assist low-income people in the Southeast "to overcome the impacts and address the root causes of climate change"...

    A shocking Vatican perspective on the pandemic The latest document from the Vatican, a reflection on the CO19 pandemic, is an embarrassment to the Catholic faithful. The Pontifical Academy for Life, under the leadership of the controversial Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, produced the document, and the Vatican press office introduced it on July 22 with a title as prolix as the statement itself: “Useful information on the Document of the Pontifical Academy for Life: Humana Communitas in the age of pandemic: untimely meditations on life’s rebirth.” That title is misleading; the document provides very little hard information. But I will grant...

    At the start of the second annual London Climate Action Week, Bishop John Arnold of Salford joined UK faith leaders in calling for the government to focus its economic recovery strategy, post-COVID-19 lockdown, on the urgent need to reduce the impact of climate change. Bishop Salford is Lead Bishop for Environmental Issues for Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales. In the open letter, representatives from Britain’s faith groups urged the government to develop a new shared vision for our common home, shared equitably, that is “rooted in sustainability and respect for nature and the earth’s resources” and “founded on the...

    I write this from my perspective as a priest responsible for the care of souls; I do not claim to be a medical expert. My pastoral concern is that we as a nation and as a Church have succumbed to excessive fear, which bespeaks a spiritual problem. The medical concerns arising from the pandemic are not without merit, but they are not unprecedented. What is unique today is the collective paralysis brought on by this fear. I write to express my concern and to reiterate the constant biblical cry, “Do not be afraid!”.... .....I cannot avoid concluding that many people...

    Vatican’s COVID-19 Commission echoes globalist environmental concerns, sidelines sacraments Such pacifist talk looks pretty from the outside, but it is reminiscent of the disarmament movement during the Cold War. July 17, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — The Vatican is adding its voice to that of globalist institutions such as the United Nations and the World Economic Forum in view of “collective action” for the rebuilding of society — or rather, the building of a new society with many utopian undertones. The U.N. and the Davos WEF, together with Prince Charles of England, recently announced global reflections that will lead to a “Global Reset”...

    In his 1996 essay entitled “Sorry, But Your Soul Just Died,” the late essayist Tom Wolfe predicted that new technologies (such as functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging, or fMRI) would soon render our traditional ideas about the “soul,” the “mind,” the “self,” and “free will” obsolete. In their place would be a “brilliant dawn” of “Ultimate Skepticism.” Today, to paraphrase another literary giant, it seems that Wolfe’s reports of the soul’s imminent death were greatly exaggerated. An fMRI is an instrument that measures brain activity by tracking blood flow. As with other parts of the body, “when an area of the...

    As fireworks fill the night sky on the Fourth of July, people will surely notice the changes taking place to the full moon, the first of the summer season, as it slowly changes color. Though the lunar change will be subtle, a one-hundred-year-old prophecy warns that this eclipse is in omen that should the nations force Israel to give up land in Israel, a foreign leader will pay with his life. A lunar eclipse takes place when the earth is between the sun and the moon, and the moon passes through the earth’s shadow. The Fourth of July will present...

    Are we heading for the Bible’s great end-time conflict? We appear to be approaching yet more choppy waters in Israel’s turbulent history. The Jewish state’s proposed ‘annexation’ of the Jordan Valley, along with parts of Judea and Samaria – otherwise known as the West Bank despite being the heart of ancient Israel – is causing hackles to rise once again among the nations. This includes Britain who insist on sticking to their longstanding Foreign Office mantra of pushing for a ‘two-state solution’ – even though there is no evidence whatsoever that it will work, or indeed that it is justifiable....
