Clinton to Apologize to Cardinal Dolan and Catholics? Nah.

Cardinal Dolan requested an apology. He didn't get one.

10/21/2016 Comments (17)

There have been some awful things said about Catholics recently from a number of people in the Hillary Clinton campaign. You might have heard about them. But then again you might not have if you're getting your news from the mainstream media.

From those WikiLeaks released emails, we have John Podesta, now the Clinton campaign chair, admitting to working to undermine Catholic teaching by creating "Catholic" groups that obfuscate true Catholic teaching on abortion and marriage.

Clinton campaign Director of Communications Jennifer Palmieri said, “I imagine they think it is the most socially acceptable politically conservative religion.”

While those things were said by those with the...READ MORE

I’m always amazed what people will believe in order to avoid believing in God.

The Miracle of the Dancing Sun at Fatima which was seen by 70,000 people on October 13th, 1917 has been written about often. But many continually attempt to explain away the vision of the sun dancing in the sky at a foretold time.

You don't have to look far on the internet to find "scientific" explanations to explain away the miracle. They're typically hilarious because they typically assume that everyone there at Fatima was either a lunatic or crazy dumb.

Here are the reasons (some of them brand new and unintentionally hilarious) they’ve amassed so we should believe nothing at all special happened in Portugal...READ MORE

The First Commandment of the Intolerant Left: “Thou Shalt Kill”

Leftism is a creed that allows no heresy.

I believe Leftism is essentially a religion to those who profess it. And the First Commandment of Leftism is "Thou Shalt Kill."

A recent case in point is that a Swiss federal court recently ruled that a nursing home run by the Salvation Army must allow assisted suicides at its facility, according to The Salvation Army challenged the Swiss Law because...well...salvation and argued that forcing it to take part in assisted suicides went against its religion. But the court predictably ruled against the Christian group.

This is not an anomaly. In the United States, four states have legalized assisted suicide. And while there's no major push yet to make doctors forced accomplices,...READ MORE

5 Reasons Christians Should Never Ever Celebrate Che Guevera

Che savagely killed Christians for little or no reason, and he expressly hated our Lord.

10/03/2016 Comments (15)

We are approaching the 49th anniversary of Che Guevera's death. Awwww.

I bring this up because I saw some fool in the pew behind me last week wearing a Che shirt. Nothing like having the image of a mass murderer on the shirt of someone standing behind you. Yeah, it's a little unsettling. (He left right after Communion. I know, right?)

So before I present to you my five reasons Christians should never wear Che shirts, some of you might be thinking "C'mon Matt, Che was a revolutionary Robin Hood type who gave to the poor and fought for social justice and stuff. It's not like he savagely killed Christians for little or no reason."

5) Che savagely killed Christians for little or no reason. ...READ MORE

7 Insanely Bad TV Shows and Movies Featuring Popes

The Register's Matt Archbold went back and looked up some movies in which the pope and the Church were portrayed. What he came up with was not encouraging.

Many Catholics are rightly upset about the scandalous anti-Catholic new HBO show called "The Young Pope." But Hollywood has been attacking the Church for years. I went back and looked up some movies in which the pope and the Church were portrayed. What I came up with was not encouraging.

The Pope Must Die - This early 90's movie is more embarrassing than puberty. Robbie Coltraine, who is essentially bionically likeable, couldn't even save this piece of cinematic sludge. And keep in mind that he once even made a movie called "Nuns on the Run" almost not the worst movie of the year.

So my third favorite part of the movie is that the entire premise of the movie is that because the Cardinals...READ MORE

So The Apostles Faked the Resurrection? Really?

The lives (and deaths) of the Apostles prove that Christ really did rise from the dead.

I've read a number of times (including a rather nasty email) that the apostles probably faked the resurrection? It always makes me laugh.

The late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia said, "The 'wise' do not believe in the resurrection of the dead. It is really quite absurd [to them]. The Ascension had to be made up by groveling enthusiasts as part of their plan to get themselves martyred."

On the day, that Christ was crucified, the Bible states that the apostles were scattered and on the run. Their leader had just been arrested, tortured, and crucified. Running kinda' made sense. But you know what doesn't make sense though? Everything that happened next if you don't believe in the...READ MORE

The Catholic Doctor Who Invented an Epidemic To Save Jews in WWII

09/05/2016 Comments (5)

In the fall of 1943, Nazis began arresting the Jews of Rome, many of whom were sent off to concentration camps including Auschwitz where they were never heard from again. While there are many beautiful stories of the people of Rome hiding Jews, this one jumped out at me. About two dozen Jews fled from the Nazis and found themselves at the door of a hospital called Fatebenefratelli which stood on a tiny island in the Tiber in Rome.

In panic and with little hope, they found themselves ushered in quietly and quickly diagnosed with a strange new disease called "Syndrome K," a version of Koch disease. They were placed into "quarantine" and put behind closed doors.

Of course, there is no such...READ MORE

This Anti-Christian Graffito May Be Earliest Depiction of Crucifixion

08/26/2016 Comments (3)

We are mocked in popular culture. We are attacked by the government. But this, as we know, is nothing new for Christians.

In fact, it's rather fitting that perhaps the earliest surviving depiction of Christ crucified might just be anti-Christian graffiti. Discovered in 1857, carved into a wall near the Palatine Hill in Rome, the graffiti is believed to have been drawn around 200 AD. The central figure of the drawing is a crucified figure with the body of a man and the head of a donkey or ass. To the left of the crucified figure is a man raising his hand in presumed worship. A mocking inscription accompanies the drawing which says "Alexamenos worshipping his God."

The donkey head must...READ MORE
