    The fourth circle of Hell, as envisioned by Dante Alighieri in The Divine Comedy, is reserved for the avaricious and the profligate. It is where those whose lust for getting and spending knew no bounds in life are punished in the afterlife by being battered endlessly with heavy weights. Notable among the souls damned for their greed, Dante wrote, "were clergymen and popes and cardinals, within whom avarice works its excess." What disgusted the great poet in 14th-century Florence – money-grubbing hucksters masquerading as men of God – is just as disgusting in 21st-century America. Comedian John Oliver is no...

    There was no halftime show under the Friday night lights at Mississippi’s Brandon High School — the marching band had been benched. The band was ordered off the field because the Christian hymn “How Great Thou Art” was a part of their halftime show — in violation of a federal court order.“The Rankin County School Board and District Office are very saddened students will not be able to perform their halftime show they have worked so hard on this summer,” the district wrote in a statement to the Clarion Ledger newspaper. In 2013 a student sued the district over a...

Men and women from all over the country try to convince us that they are full of integrity, compassion, decisiveness and all sorts of other abstract qualities that seem impossible to measure or quantify. But what is God’s plan for leadership, not just for our elected officials, but for everyday people? Every Christian exercises leadership in some capacity.

Understand that first, that there's a God-shaped hole in your heart...

    How can we determine what is morally right? The answer to this question -- the most important question human beings need to answer -- is a major difference between Left and Right. For conservatives, the answer is, and has always been, that there are moral truths -- objective moral standards -- to which every person is accountable. In America, this has meant accountability to the Creator, the God of the Bible, and to Judeo-Christian values. For the Left, the answer has always been -- meaning since Karl Marx, the father of Leftism -- that there is no transcendent source of...

    At the Red State Conservatives conference held in Atlanta right after the GOP Presidential debates former Arkansas Governor, Mike Huckabee, reminded his listeners that the Supreme Court is not the Supreme Being. In a biting dissent in the Obergefell v. Hodges case on marriage, Chief Justice Roberts put the constitutional overreach this way, “who do we think we are?”  Both Huckabee and Roberts were aghast at the Supreme Court’s attempt to effectively declare the Natural Law unconstitutional. The Court tried to etch its decision to redefine the meaning of marriage in stone by saying marriage was a fundamental right rather than just...

    In a recent ABC News article, journalist David Knight writes that two German scientists have proven logician and mathematician, Kurt Gödel’s, theorem for God’s existence is logically accurate [1]. Knight writes, “The details of the mathematics involved in Gödel's ontological proof are complicated, but in essence the Austrian was arguing that, by definition, God is that for which no greater can be conceived. And while God exists in the understanding of the concept, we could conceive of him as greater if he existed in reality. Therefore, he must exist. “Even at the time, the argument was not exactly a new...

    Capitalism has a new competitor and its name is "shame." The left is determined to make capitalism morally reprehensible. Cloaked in provocative terms like "income inequality," wealth redistribution has become the popular economic philosophy in America today, but it doesn't hold a candle to capitalism. When your first grade teacher asked the class "what do you want to be when you get big?" I'm doubtful anyone raised their hand to say "ooh, ooh, a welfare recipient!" I'm also certain your classmates never pointed to posters of their teen idols to say "anyone but them!" In other words, socialism isn't natural;...

    As Obama’s term as President is slowly nearing its end, more and more of who the man is, and what he truly stands for, is beginning to seep out. For instance, President Obama released his 4th of July weekly address for 2015 with one key ingredient missing: God. Unlike his weekly addresses during the previous two years, where the President concluded his speeches with “God Bless You All” (2014) and “So, God bless You All. And may God bless The United States of America” (2013), Obama left out any mention of God in his recent address. Instead, this year, he...

Same-sex marriage is the law of the land, as the right of gays and lesbians to marry is right there in the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, which was ratified in 1868. We just didn't see it.

They presumed to invent, out of thin air and through judicial fiat, a “constitutional right” to sin-based “gay marriage.” (Father God, as you exact Your perfect justice on America, please have mercy upon Your faithful.) The horrific nature of this illegitimate decision cannot be overstated. It makes a mockery of the institution of marriage, something of which God alone has the authority to design and define.

    The Chaplain of the House of Representatives is so sensitive to others’ beliefs that even though he’s given 44 prayers this session of the House, he hasn’t said the word “Jesus” once, and will not say it. From Roll Call: The House chaplain has not made one reference to Jesus in the 44 prayers he has given in the 114th Congress. Conroy, who became the chaplain in 2011, consistently begins his prayers by referencing “eternal God” or “gracious God” and usually concludes them by saying, “May all that is done this day be for your greater honor and glory.”

    As the Church of England prepares to install its first female bishop this year, church leaders are growing bolder and louder in their call for the use of feminine language to describe God. Some of them are even going so far as to refer to Jesus, a historical figure — and a man — as “Jesa Christa.” Many priests and bishops already substitute “she” for “he” in parish services around the country. At a recent Westminster Faith Debate on women bishops, a woman rabbi sang ‘The Lord’s My Shepherd’ with female instead of male pronouns.Bishop of Buckingham Alan Wilson...

    Beware the Strangest Idol of All – A Reflection on How Even Works of Charity Cannot Eclipse Obedience to Christ By: Msgr.

The Social Gospel is an intellectual movement that was most prominent in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The...

    Courage, bravery, honor, valor…these are but a few of the timeless tributes used to memorialize the silhouette of the American soldier. Yet these fabled words pale in comparison to the greatest embodiment of our Armed Forces: love. Love is the saluted soul of their service, the intrinsic calling of a sacred duty, and the billowing breath of an enduring creed. Love of country, family, and most of all, love of liberty – God’s most precious and nonnegotiable gift – moves ordinary men and women to confront the most unconscionable forms of evil, to stand guard in the growing shadow of...

    A recent Pew Research Center study found there has been a big drop since 2007 in the number of Americans who identify as Christian. Although 70 percent of Americans still describe themselves as Christian, more people are identifying with no religion at all.The survey found Americans who call themselves atheist, agnostic, or of no particular faith showed the largest increase jumping from 16 percent in 2007 to nearly 23 percent in 2014. In the same period, Christians dropped from 78 percent to just under 71 percent.Though not an affirmed Christian, George Washington realized the importance of religion in maintaining our...

    It is an obvious truth we too often forget. At the Albert Einstein Memorial, on the grounds of the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, D.C., an explanatory sign states a simple fact that refutes the argument President Barack Obama's science adviser once made for redistributing wealth and limiting human population so as to save the human race from a poverty he claimed must inevitably intensify as our numbers increase. "At Einstein's feet lies a circular sky map representing the planets, sun, moon, and stars, positioned as observed by astronomers from the U.S. Naval Observatory at noon on the day...

    May 5, 2015 (LifeSiteNews.com) -- An African Catholic bishop has said he thinks Hillary Clinton believes she is a god, someone who doesn’t value others’ morals, and he hopes Americans will wake up to what sort of people are running to be their president. “I believe there are three groups of people in this world,” said Bishop Emmanuel Badejo. “Those who believe in God, those who do not believe in God, and those who think they are gods.” “Hillary Clinton I think is one of those who thinks she is a god,” he said. “And I’m not obliged to believe...

    Purity of Heart is Needed to See God By: Msgr. Charles PopeI have mentioned here before that my mentor and teacher, Fr. Francis Martin, once asked, “Do you know what is the biggest obstacle for us in understanding the Word of God?” I was expecting him to answer his own question by saying something like, “We don’t know enough Greek,” or “We haven’t studied the historical critical method carefully enough.” But he looked around the room and then said, “The biggest obstacle we have to understanding the Word of God is our sin.”He went on to encourage us in the discipline of study...
