Censorship is rampant on social media. Don’t help the people who object to the truth by giving them ammunition. Be smarter than they are. It’s not that hard.
Who would’ve thought that the persecution of the Church by the hands of the atheistic and pagan state was going to be legitimized by the crimes of those in collars and miters?
Be careful taking money from the government. It always turns out to be worst trade deal in the history of trade deals. Believe me.
The German Bishops have decided to change Catholic sexual morality without Vatican approval. Where have I heard of German priests going it alone before?
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Pray for the the grace of final penitence. He probably needs it.
I’m getting tired of the Vatican sucking up to secular authorities who are openly hostile to the faith.
In the aftermath of the Cardinal Pell conviction, the secular authorities in Australia have moved to change laws that will permit old abuse victims to seek new damages against the Church. On the surface this may seem like the just thing to do, one has to ask what the limits to this action are.

There are people out there who think because of my beliefs as a Catholic, that I hate gay people. Nothing can be more false.
There’s a strange dynamic both on a personal and on a social level that is quite paradoxical to the greatest controversial issue facing our time. It is the modern day Civil Rights movement, only it’s not about race. It’s about lifestyle. Because of our zeitgeist we are all faced with a challenge; get with the program regarding LGBTQ rights or be shunned as a hater, a homophobe and a zealot. Gone are the discriminatory motions against a community who live alternate lifestyles that are not considered “normal”. Now is the time to embrace and accept them as who they are. I once did a research paper on the high level of suicide among college students due to their struggling with same-sex attraction. The numbers have increased since then, and that is indeed a tragedy. This is not about statistics and numbers. This is about what I really think. This is not a defense. This is simply my attempt to bring this issue into perspective not only in a social perspective but also a spiritual one regarding the faith and what I as a Catholic am called to do…and hating gay people is not one of those things. This is what I believe is the Enemy’s diabolical attempt to ironically demonize the Christian faith in his sad attempt to destroy it. Won’t happen.
