      Mike Wallace interviews Margaret Sanger. December 3, 2010 ( - In 1957, an aging Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood and the international birth control movement, agreed to an interview with CBS News’ Mike Wallace. In stark contrast with the sympathetic reception Sanger could expect to receive today in a network television interview, Wallace hammered Sanger with difficult questions and caught her in contradictions, while Sanger squirmed, fidgeted, and denied statements she had made only a week earlier in pre-interview discussions with CBS staff.This fascinating and sometimes chilling interview with Sanger can be found at the website of the...

    [Catholic Caucus] Francis's Gay Sex Abuse Agenda vs. Pope Benedict's Catholic Anti-Sex Abuse Agenda Francis strolls hand in hand with the anti-gangster and gay rights advocate Fr. Luigi Ciotti On September 1, Crux reported that Francis said: "Let's call unions between the same sex 'civil unions.'" (Crux, "'I consulted a psychoanalyst,' Pope Francis reveals in new book," September 1, 2017) The gay/lesbian dissenting New Ways Ministry said: "Pope Francis has never, as pontiff, stated his endorsement of [homosexual] civil unions so flatly. (He did support civil unions as a compromise to his opposition towards marriage equality... As pontiff, he...

    A man became diabetic, before that he had no desire for sweets, afterwards he started hiding candy around the house like an alcoholic hides bottles. Before my heart attack, I never wanted salt, never liked it. But afterward, "mmm, gimmie that salt, GOOD!!!". It's a variant on "the grass is always greener on the other side of the hill", that whatever we can't have is precisely what we want. How do we regard the idea of "healing" from the effects of sin? This is in an age when the chief sin, is disbelief in sin. When we are going along...

    Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.( Exodus 20:17)In this commandment God asserts his authority over our inward life; our thoughts, desires, and imaginations. We are not to set our desire upon anything at all that God has not given to us. We are not to cultivate an independent inner life, all is to be under submission to the LORD. Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable...
  • The Sin Of False Witness... ten commandments pt 11

    You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. (Exodus 20:16)The primary understanding of this commandment, is a prohibition of perjury, testifying against a neighbor falsely before a Judge. However, as in the rest of the commandments, the stated prohibition is only chief of a whole category of Sins. Our God is a God of Truth, and commands us to Love truth, and to speak the Truth in Love. God doesn’t lie, neither should his holy people. Exodus 23 expands on this commandment , Thou shalt not raise a false report: put not thine hand with the wicked to be...

    A REMNANT INTERVIEW: Archbishop Viganň on COVID-19 and the Hand of God In the face of this chastisement, when so many bishops have fled and taken our Sacraments with them, we're so grateful that at least a few good shepherds have broken the chains of collegiality in order to bring to  us the consolation of Christ's truth and call the scattering sheep back into the protection of the fold. Clearly, we are not alone. God is again raising up his prophets. Millions of Catholics are struggling to assimilate everything that has happened in the last few weeks. On this First Sunday of...

    A minister who has been leading a weekly Bible-study group for members of President Trump's Cabinet has posted online his belief that amid the coronavirus, America is not experiencing God's "forsaking wrath" but, rather, his "consequential wrath." "Some leading evangelicals believe and teach that America is now experiencing God's judgment," wrote Ralph Drollinger, a former NBA player and the founder of Capitol Ministries, which provides Bible studies, evangelism and discipleship to political leaders. "If that is the case, as a public servant who is sacrificing so much in your attempt to turn our nation around, it would stand to reason...

Please permit us.In all gravity, Dear Bishops……Why aren’t any of you coming out of your cathedras at this? Just a few days ago, Pope Francis held an Ad Limina meeting with 33 bishops from California, Nevada, and Hawaii. One of the attendants, Archbishop Cordileone of San Francisco, reported of that meeting (our emphasis):“He [Pope Francis] made important distinctions between the (sexual) orientation and the question of marriage, for example saying...

    Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into...

    [Barf Alert] Pope urges bishops to teach discernment, including on political issues Pope Francis meets with U.S. bishops from Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas during their "ad limina" visits to the Vatican Jan. 20, 2020. The bishops were making their "ad limina" visits to report on the status of their dioceses to the pope and Vatican officials. (Credit: CNS photo/Vatican Media.) ROME - Sometimes the political choices people face can seem like a choice between supporting a “snake” or supporting a “dragon,” but Pope Francis told a group of U.S. bishops their job is to step back from partisan politics and...
  • Does the Case of David and Bathsheba Justify Adultery Today?

    Christian Courier ^ | Wayne Jackson
    David was one of the remarkable men of the Old Testament. He was a capable musician and beloved poet. He excelled as a military leader and king. And as “a man after God’s own heart” he was an exceptional religious leader. Yet, in spite of his illustrious achievements, Israel’s greatest king was not without some grievous faults — not the least of which was his shameful conduct with Bathsheba (2 Sam. 11:1-27). As the Pharisees of Jesus’ day possessed a diabolical skill at twisting the Scriptures to justify their own evil desires, even so, some today are equally adept at...

    Posted on November 25, 2019 by Msgr. Charles Pope Why Was Christ Crucified Between Two Thieves? It is good and necessary to ponder more of the Gospel of yesterday’s Solemnity of Christ the King. It remains a profound teaching that Christ was crucified between two thieves. Why?St. Thomas Aquinas proposes three answers to the question. Let’s consider them, with particular emphasis on the third.I. To Identify with Fallen Sinners – St Thomas said, As Christ became accursed of the cross for us, so for our salvation He was crucified as a guilty one among the guilty (Comm. xxxiii in...

    Pope Francis is considering adding ‘ecological sin’ to the official teachings of the Catholic Church. He said there are plans to update the Catechism of the Catholic Church to include environmental damages that risk “the common home” of humanity. The spiritual leader called on the global community to recognise ecocide as a “fifth category of crime against peace” and stressed corporations must not go unpunished if they cause harm to the planet. He said the term ‘ecocide’ covers “the massive contamination of air, land and water resources, the large-scale destruction of flora and fauna and any action capable of producing...

    Pope Francis, who has made the environment a signature cause of his pontificate, said he was strongly considering adding the category of “ecological sin” to the Catholic Church’s official compendium of teachings. Pope Francis has stressed the importance of environmental protection since his election in 2013. He dedicated an entire encyclical, “Laudato Si,’” published in 2015, to the topic. In that document, he called global warming a major threat to life on the planet and called for a reduction in the use of fossil fuels. He also blamed the global market economy for plundering the earth at the expense of...
