Christian College Could Lose Accreditation. Guess Why

10/03/2014 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Historian Declares Jesus a Myth Despite Many Historical References

10/01/2014 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

09/25/2014 Comments (153)

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

09/19/2014 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 Pope is Right. It's a Lot Like World War III Out There

09/13/2014 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

09/11/2014 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

Pro-Abortion, Pro-Gay Marriage Catholic Gov. To Run for President

09/05/2014 Comments (43)

The Catholic Governor of Maryland, Martin O'Malley, a pro-abortion rights and pro-gay marriage Democrat, will run for president, according to a report from the Washington Examiner.

In 2009, when the Archdiocese of Washington D.C. announced that it was considering withdrawing from providing certain social services if the city council passed a same-sex marriage law, O'Malley reportedly said, "That's not the Catholic church I know." So what is the Catholic Church O'Malley knows.

It's one where the U.S. bishops are dismissed as a clan of firebreathing partisan Republican hacks. In speaking about the HHS contraceptive mandate with Candy Crowley, he completely dismissed the religious liberty...READ MORE

This Quote from Saint John Paul II is a Must Read for Every Father

08/30/2014 Comments (16)

In our world today, the role of fatherhood has become less clear. Some even question whether fathers are necessary at all. With five kids I've been wondering recently if I do enough or more accurately am I raising my children correctly.

I recently read this quote from Saint John Paul II about how his father, in part, inspired him to heed his vocation to the priesthood.

He reportedly said:

"Day after day I was able to observe the austere way in which he lived. By profession he was a soldier and, after my mother's death, his life became one of constant prayer. Sometimes I would wake up during the night and find my father on his knees, just as I would always see him kneeling in the parish...READ MORE
