    Canada’s commitment to human rights has dwindled faster than imagined. A nation founded within the British Empire, whose leaders were Bible-believing Christians committed to a civilizing mission around the world, Canada has fallen so far from its Judeo-Christian roots and causes. The attacks on freedom of speech and religion are staggering, and American citizens—as well as freedom fighters around the world—need to pay attention. The homeland of John Candy, Kenneth Galbraith, Jordan Peterson, The McKenzie Brothers, Bonhomme, Francophone Americans, and Brian Mulroney has gone fascist.This immoral rot began fifty years ago, and the fruit of this poisonous tree is in...

    “Why would a person choose a life where they will be hated, judged, and rejected by society?” This was one of the first arguments I learned to defend myself against in arguments about my sexuality. In the late 1990s, it was perceived as a powerful call to the humanity of those who opposed gay rights under the notion that it was merely a lifestyle choice. The idea was that if we could appeal to others’ sense of compassion for our social plight, perhaps they could understand the effects of their intolerance. I often fantasized about breaking through the walls of...

    Battle of wills: Tiny order of French nuns takes on Vatican VATICAN CITY - The Vatican has an unusual dilemma on its hands after nearly all the nuns in a tiny French religious order threatened to renounce their vows rather than accept the Holy See’s decision to remove their superior.The sisters argue that the Vatican commissioners sent to replace their superior general, who is also the niece of the order’s founder, have no understanding of their way of life or spirituality. The Church’s conclusion - contained in a summary of its investigation provided this week to The Associated Press -...

They’ve had a big orchestra for some time and they’ve got the megaphones to amplify it, whether it’s Sinclair at the local level or Fox at the national level,” Perez...

    Francis Mercy Hits the Familia Christi Hard Francis Mercy Hits the Familia Christi Hard The Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei under Cardinal Ladaria published a December 1 decree, imposing Roman Auxiliary Bishop Daniele Libanori as the new superior of the Familia Christi, an Italian Old Rite community consisting of 15 young priests and seminarians. The group was founded in 2016 by the excellent former Ferrara Archbishop Luigi Negri. It is loved by the faithful but hated by Negri’s successor, Archbishop Gian Carlo Perego, a modernist Bergoglio bishop who promotes mass-immigration and modernism. According to press reports, Archbishop Perego mainly hates the...

    Archbold on “Actuating the Schism” At his longtime blog, Creative Minority Report, 1P5 and Remnant contributor Patrick Archbold has a five-part series about “actuating” the schism in the Church. Some of you are going to want to read the whole thing, but I’d like to offer a Cliff’s Notes version here by way of introduction.In the first installment, Archbold begins with a quote attributed to Pope Francis back in 2016 – which we covered here – wherein he is alleged to have said, “It is not to be excluded that I will enter history as the one who split the Catholic...

    A Rutgers journal will put rare Nuremberg documents online. A plan to rout the church and install a Reich faith is shown. Take over the churches from within, using party sympathizers. Discredit, jail or kill Christian leaders. And re-indoctrinate the congregants. Give them a new faith - in Germany's Third Reich. More than a half-century ago, confidential U.S. government reports on the Nazi plans were prepared for the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg and will be available online for free starting tomorrow - some of them for the first time. These rare documents - in their original form, some with ...

    Even those who accept that unjust laws must be observed until they are repealed say that the actions of Russian officials in Naberezhny Chelny against a Baptist minister are intended not to enforce the law but to intimidate Evangelical Baptists... A week ago, police in that Middle Volga city arrested Baptist minister Leonid Povorov for baptizing believers in public without securing advanced permission from officials even though they had not given him notice, brought the pastor in shackles to the courtroom, and imposed a 20,000-ruble (330 US dollar) fine. Both locally and at the national level, Baptists have protested these...

    The Vatican: They’re Doing This On Purpose That quote [pictured] is from Der Speigel. But it is Spiegel’s Correspondent in Italy, Walter Mayr, who characterizes that statement as self-critical. Based upon all the evidence to date and what I think may be coming, I suspect that is a misreading of the statement.  The Pope wasn’t being self-critical, he was telling you the plan.Our friend Pat Archbold has been producing a series of articles explaining in detail how the Bergoglian Purge is being carried out and what is coming next. He has given me a clearer understanding why we are...

We have seen how they systematically use and abuse the apostolic visitation process to demolish any order or prelate that they deem too traditional or just not sufficiently part of the team with no sense of fairness, order, or...

    For the next week, November 26 – 30, Engage Magazine is partnering with Uncharted Ministries to reach out to persecuted Christian widows in Nigeria. The Fulani Herdsmen, a Muslim terrorist group, has ravaged their land, burning churches and villages to the ground, kidnapping women and girls, and leaving many without husbands. The Nigerian widow situation is one of the most severe examples of Christian persecution in the world today. “Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble and to keep oneself unspotted from the world” (James 1:27).

But it will readmit “to full ecclesial communion the remaining ‘official’ Bishops, ordained without Pontifical Mandate.” The agreement is now being used to coerce the Underground Catholics to join the Chinese Patriotic Catholic Association under Communist rule, as the...

    How Deeper Underground Can Underground Catholics Go?   Refusing to join the government-controlled Chinese Patriotic Catholic Association, some priests in Hebei have been forced to leave their churches and now organize secret “guerrilla-like” congregation gatherings. Despite the September 22 provisional agreement between the Vatican and China, the latter has not ceased its harassment of underground Catholic Church. Holding on to their beliefs, some underground clergy in the northern province of Hebei, China’s Catholic heartland, refuse to follow the Party line and pay the price of going even deeper underground. Bitter Winter talked to some of such priests.It was in 2011...

    The Persecution Letters By Philip Cottraux When we think of Christianity in ancient Rome, one of the first images that comes to mind is Christians being fed to lions in the Coliseum. But this wasn’t the norm throughout most of Roman history. Persecutions came in phases and were often short-lived, according to which emperor ordered it. The Romans didn’t always force their subjects to bow to their gods. Judaism was legal and since Christianity was considered a branch of Judaism, it too enjoyed certain rights and protections. At first. But as it grew, some started to view them with distrust....

    Democrats are gloating over the sentencing of former Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) last week. He was ordered to serve 10 years in prison for the vague charges of mail fraud, wire fraud and money laundering. Whenever prosecutors want to get someone who hasn’t actually committed a crime, they use those vague but scary sounding charges. He was also ordered to pay $1,014,718.51 in restitution, to be divided between him and two other co-defendants.What did Stockman actually do to warrant this? He facilitated four donations from two donors totaling $915,000 to two nonprofits he was associated with. One of the nonprofits...

    Francis betrays Chinese CatholicsIt's with a very heavy heart that I write this article. However, after much prayer, I, in good conscience, can no longer keep silent. Since the Sept. 22 provisional agreement between the Holy See and the People's Republic of China, the crackdown of the underground Church has quickly escalated: * Throughout the country, underground priests are being coerced into joining the Chinese Catholic Patriotic Association (CCPA). Some have even received threats of imprisonment. Although this is nothing new, what’s different now is that Chinese Authorities are using the Holy Father's words against us. They're telling priests: "Your...

    Cardinal Burke on Viganò testimony: God’s law is higher than the pontifical secret November 9, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – God’s law comes before all else, Cardinal Raymond Burke said recently in regard to bombshell testimonies from Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò on mishandling of clergy sexual abuse in the Church up to and including Pope Francis. Because of this, the former U.S. papal nuncio was obligated to come forward with what he knew, the cardinal said. “The evils he had denounced are of the most serious nature,” said Cardinal Burke, and if true, then “he was obliged in conscience” to release...
