7 Beloved Famous People Who Were Wildly Pro-Eugenics

11/14/2014 Comments (56)

Eugenics traces its roots back to the late 19th century when Charles Darwin's cousin Sir Francis Galton coined the term. The theory is that human characteristics and afflictions could be bred out of the human race. It was all the rage in the early 20th century until Adolf Hitler came along and ruined all the fun for everyone.

Despite being debunked, today, eugenics still is going strong except people don't call it that. Recently, the Kenyan bishops seemed to have exposed an involuntary sterilization program there. And in India, eleven women recently died after a botched sterilization surgery. There have been reports women were bribed to undergo sterilization surgeries in India.

Kenyan Bishops Say They've Uncovered a Massive International Population Control Program

11/11/2014 Comments (40)

The Catholic bishops of Kenya are publicly questioning whether the World Health Organization and UNICEF are using a tetanus vaccination as a cover for a shocking involuntary and disguised population control program.

In a public letter, the bishops raised questions as to whether the tetanus vaccine was laced with Beta- HCG hormone which causes infertility and multiple miscarriages in women. After raising their concerns about a possible nefarious population control program with government officials, nothing was done. So the bishops "struggled and acquired several vials of the vaccine," which were then sent to numerous labs.

Horrifyingly, the bishops learned that "all the tests showed that...READ MORE

Our Lady of America: A Light in the Darkness

11/10/2014 Comments (64)

As the Bishops of the United States gather in Baltimore this week for their fall meeting, the family and the recent Synod on the Family are forefront in many bishops’ minds.

Now more than ever, there is a need to focus people on the sanctification of the family.  Our culture is trying to push impurity as the accepted standard of moral behavior within families and purity is viewed as an unachievable standard for normal people.

But we know that Our Lord calls us all to purity and fifty years ago he sent his mother, calling herself Our Lady of America, to a sister in Ohio to call us to purity and sanctification of the family.  Today, there is a movement underway to have the Bishops of the...READ MORE

Did Pope Francis Endorse Pro-Abortion Democrat?

11/04/2014 Comments (64)

It might have seemed that way to folks in Rhode Island. A pro-abortion rights Democrat ran a last minute ad prominently featuring Pope Francis. It read "Gina Raimondo. She is Church." I don't even know what that means but it seems to have been effective.

~~The pro-Raimondo flyer touts that she is a graduate of a Catholic school, she baptized her children, she's female and Catholic, and "believes in Catholic values."

But here's the thing. Raimondo isn't endorsed by the Church, of course, but she is endorsed by Planned Parenthood. On abortion she reportedly distanced herself from the Church by saying, "You know the Catholic Church has a clear position, and I have a clear position. And I am...READ MORE

The Church Should Shush On 'Science'

10/31/2014 Comments (140)

When I read headlines like this one: "Pope Francis Officially Endorses Evolution and The Big Bang Theory," I can do nothing other than shake my head and sigh.

The media breathlessly reports this as just another sure sign that Pope Francis is so radically different from those other Popes.  Except that is not what the Pope said and he is not the first Pope to say it.

What the Pope said, in an address to the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, is that such concepts are "not inconsistent with the notion of creation, because evolution requires the creation of beings that evolve."

Of course that is true, so far as it goes.  The breathless media hype is merely additional unneeded testimony to the...READ MORE

Crazy Anti-Catholic Political Attack Site

10/26/2014 Comments (31)

A website opposing the candidacy of Mark Miloscia, a pro-life Catholic, may just be the most vehemently anti-Catholic political attack you've seen this election season.

Thus far, it's uncertain who created the site, but it's certainly from those opposing the Republican state senate candidate.

Interestingly, Miloscia switched from Democrat to Republican precisely because he felt that religious people were no longer welcome in the Democrat party. It appears to be growing increasingly difficult to argue with that.

We're getting to the point where this can hardly be called surprising. Radical Muslims are slaughtering Christians in many parts of the globe but it's hardly worth the raise of...READ MORE

This Week's Top Catholic Videos

10/24/2014 Comments (11)

So this is the New Evangelization, huh?

Say what you will YouTube is a place where souls can go to die. But many folks out there are shedding a little light out there -sometimes to great effect. Other times not so much. We've had monks and nuns singing their way onto the charts. But now we've got priests tap dancing their way into a viral hit. It's pretty fun.

.

Now we've got a nun singing Madonna's Like a Virgin. One of these things is not like the other. What next? Monks reinterpreting the theological intent of "Whoomp there it is?"

Here's a fun one. Students, priests, and faculty at Boston College chose to "Shake It Off" offering an invitation to “shake off our burdens and choose to...READ MORE

God's Law vs. God's Mercy?  Never

10/21/2014 Comments (14)

I have noted lately some general confusion on the distinctions between God’s mercy, His law (Church doctrine and law), and His Justice.

Some people seem to equate God’s law, as presented in the decalogue and Church law, as being about God’s justice. Unfortunately, this is the way that certain members of the Church hierarchy have chosen to frame the discussion.  Consequently, some people have come to believe that God’s law (Doctrine) is somehow in opposition to God’s mercy.  Heavens no!!

God’s law is all about mercy, about love, and about truth.  Church law, as revealed in Her doctrine, is never about justice in the sense of punishment or paying for your crimes.  Rather it is only about...READ MORE
