Historian Declares Jesus a Myth Despite Many Historical References

Wednesday, October 01, 2014 1:30 PM Comments (59)

Historical researcher Michael Paulkovich is claiming that after studying many writers from the first, second, and third centuries and finding no mention of Jesus, he can conclude that Jesus Christ is a mythical figure.

I, however, believe future generations will come to see "Paulkovich the Scholar" as a myth. In declaring that no early writers mention Christ, one must assume he skipped Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.

Among the 126 writers, Paulkovich, for some reason, includes writers and historian who actually did mention Christ and/or Early Christians such as Josephus. Josephus wrote:

But the younger Ananus who, as we said, received the high priesthood, was of a bold disposition and...READ MORE

I Am A Neil DeGrasse Tyson Denier

Monday, September 29, 2014 9:12 PM Comments (65)

Really? A famous scientist's ridiculously absurd approach to science (Smug and wrong) turns out to be the same as his approach to life (Smug and wrong.)

Go figure?

Neil DeGrasse Tyson, the very same scientist who completely lied about history in a recent episode of his show Cosmos, has been getting a lot of flack lately for lying. His lies about the Church went largely unremarked, but his lies about quotes have gained more traction.

In his regular presentation which he gets paid big bucks to give, he has a section in which he presents "quotes" to show just how dumb are today's politicians. Now you wouldn't think it would be too difficult to demonstrate this obvious truth, but being an...READ MORE

What Happens In Church Stays in Church

Thursday, September 25, 2014 9:21 AM Comments (150)

A parish in Montana is terribly divided over the decision the pastor made to refuse Communion to two men who were recently civilly married.

This is one of the predominant issues of our time and I think we'll be hearing more stories like it in the near future. Bishop Michael Warfel of the Diocese of Great Falls-Billings reportedly said after speaking with parishioners about the issue that "there obviously is polarization."

He said he wishes to bring healing to the parish but added, "At the same time, as a Catholic bishop, I uphold our Catholic teachings."

This is a sad situation but I'm more interested in what one of the men involved said to the media. Exhibiting incrdulity, he said, "We...READ MORE

Streamlined Annulment Of Marriages or Jesus?

Monday, September 22, 2014 11:22 AM Comments (114)

There is real danger in the decision, announced on Saturday some 7 weeks after the fact, Pope Francis has decided to establish a Special Commission for the study of the reform of the matrimonial processes in canon law, read annulments.

The Holy See Press Office states that the commission has as "its goal to prepare a proposal of reform of the matrimonial process, with the objective of simplifying its procedure, making it more streamlined, and safeguarding the principle of the indissolubility of matrimony."

Simpler and more streamlined while safeguarding principles, who could possibly be opposed to that?

Let's just get this out of the way and state that if the result of the commission is...READ MORE

Pray Like a Cheerleader

Friday, September 19, 2014 10:37 AM Comments (14)

The story begins in fairly typical fashion. But it ends differently that most.

A high school in Tennessee was told they were no longer allowed to have a prayer said over the loudspeaker at football games. You know that part of the story well. It looked like the usual cast of ACLU lawyers, scared administrators, and people too busy to care too much. But something different happened at Oneida High School in Tennessee, according to WBIR. Some people cared.

Kevin Acres, the voice behind the loudspeaker for many years, was told that instead of leading the crowd in a pre-game prayer as had been done for close to eighty years he was instructed to initiate a moment of silence.

When Oneida's...READ MORE

The Humiliation Of Cardinal Burke (The No Spin Zone)

Thursday, September 18, 2014 8:30 AM Comments (291)

By now, most people have heard the rumor from multiple sources that Cardinal Raymond Burke will be removed from the Apostolic Signatura where he serves as Prefect.  This comes after being already removed from the Congregation for Bishops by Pope Francis.

Further, it is rumored that Cardinal Burke will be appointed "Cardinal Patron" of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, a largely symbolic position.  This decision is said to be in response to a book to which Cardinal Burke contributed, to be published soon by Ignatius Press, in which the propositions proffered by Cardinal Kasper in his keynote speech in preparation for the Synod on the Family are systematically dismantled.  The book...READ MORE

The Pope is Right. It's a Lot Like World War III Out There

Saturday, September 13, 2014 1:18 PM Comments (43)

Pope Francis said recently that the world is essentially involved in a piecemeal World War III. This is an illuminating statement.

There is no way to argue that the world is at war. There are no unified fronts but an anarchy of madness and violence fills the map of the world.

Reuters reports:

Pope Francis said on Saturday the spate of conflicts around the globe today were effectively a "piecemeal" Third World War, condemning the arms trade and "plotters of terrorism" sowing death and destruction. "Humanity needs to weep and this is the time to weep," Francis said in the homily of a Mass during a visit to Italy's largest war memorial, a large, Fascist-era monument where more than 100,000...READ MORE

Jesuit University Advertises Intern Opportunity with Radical Pro-Abortion Pol

Thursday, September 11, 2014 9:56 AM Comments (3)

The University of San Francisco, a Jesuit University, is currently advertising on its website an internship for a politician so radical in his support of abortion that he is currently introducing a bill opposing sex-selective abortion bans this week.

That's right. City Supervisor David Chiu opposes any and all bans on sex selective abortions. Why? Because he says it's racist.

Clearly, so committed to abortion is Chiu that he's willing to legally protect killing children based on their gender and on top of that, smear anyone who thinks differently with an accusation of racism.

The legislation being introduced by city supervisor David Chiu reads "Lawmakers across the country have...READ MORE
