Crazy Anti-Catholic Political Attack Site

Sunday, October 26, 2014 10:32 PM Comments (29)

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

Friday, October 24, 2014 10:14 AM 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

The Silencing of the Shepherds

Tuesday, October 14, 2014 8:20 PM Comments (63)

The Pulpit police have been activated.

The city of Houston has issued subpoenas ordering a number of pastors to hand over any recent sermons that might have touched on the issue of homosexuality or the city's lesbian mayor Annise Parker.

Or else.

Those failing to comply with this order could be held in contempt of court. Welcome to America in the 21st century folks.

Christina Holcomb of the Alliance Defending Freedom (which filed a motion against the city on behalf of five pastors) reportedly called it "an inquisition designed to stifle any critique of its actions.”

The history here is that as part of the city's new non-discrimination ordinance would allow men to use ladies rooms and...READ MORE

Teachers Told to Call Kids "Purple Penguins" as "Boys and Girls" Not Inclusive

Thursday, October 09, 2014 10:13 AM Comments (82)

Teachers in a Nebraska school district have been told to not refer to children as boys and girls but instead as things like "purple penguins." I don't even know what that means.

Anyway, what would happen if one of the kids insisted they were a red penguin and wouldn't come to story time until the teacher acknowledged the redness of their interior penguin essence? They could say "I may appear to be a purple penguin but in my mind I am very much red. Bright freaking red. Please acknowledge it or you better call your union rep because I'm about to have an army of sensitivity trainers crawling around this kindergarten and contacting the media about how you're anti-penguin."

We'd need...READ MORE

Christian College Could Lose Accreditation. Guess Why

Friday, October 03, 2014 9:26 AM Comments (127)

The New England Association of Schools and Colleges recently announced that they were giving Gordon College, a Christian institution, one year to "review" its policies regarding homosexuality or face losing its accreditation.

These bureaucratic bullies say that the college may be in violation of accreditation standards because of its view that homosexual behavior is a sin and prohibited on campus. The NEASC is demanding that the college review its policy and submit a report to "ensure that the College’s policies and procedures are non-discriminatory."

So now the college has formed a committee to "review" its policy. In a statement that both the NEASC and Gordon College released together,...READ MORE

Historian Declares Jesus a Myth Despite Many Historical References

Wednesday, October 01, 2014 1:30 PM Comments (60)

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

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

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
