    As RedState’s been noting, normal people are waking to the social carnage wrought by the Sex & Death Left. They don’t like people sexualizing their kids or turning every public event into a ritual of woke political theater. Bud Light is learning it, Target is learning it, and hopefully, the Dodgers might be catching on soon.They will if CatholicVote has anything to do with it. The group has sent a public letter to L.A. Dodgers owner Mark Walter and CEO Stan Kasten announcing a boycott of the team to be publicized by a $1 million ad campaign.At issue, of course,...

    IMHO deep respect for motherhood (and fatherhood) is at the very heart of what makes Catholicism special. Leonardo's Uffizi image of The Virgin Mary is wonderful, beautiful innocence. Female beauty is an irreplaceable element of the overall power of motherhood in the human realm. Mother Mary Angelica Of The Annunciation rose from poverty to build a massive television empire to protect and extend the reach of her faith. She maintained long standing Western values which the modern world destroys. For instance : “The woman is a gentle, loving bond who encourages, consoles, builds, reconciles, and makes all things new and...

    Hilarion Heagy, an Eastern Catholic monk and priest, recently renounced Christianity and embraced Islam triggering multiple headlines in Islamic media and consternation among some who knew him to be a devout Christ follower.“Since news of my embrace of Islam has now officially gone public, my message inbox has been jammed full and my phone has been ringing off the hook,” Heagy, who now also goes by his new Muslim name, Said Abdul Latif, wrote in a post on Medium on Feb. 20. “It is currently impossible to speak to everyone and to answer every question that’s been fielded to me....

    George Neumayr’s tireless attempts to sound the alarm on the corruption rotting the Catholic Church must not be lost in the ether.Late last week, George Neumayr, author, journalist, and senior editor for the American Spectator became the third high-profile Catholic to die in as many weeks. Neumayr suddenly perished on Thursday, Jan. 19, after contracting malaria in the west African nation of the Ivory Coast, where he was undertaking research for an upcoming project on the Catholic Church in Africa.The year began on a dismal note, with Pope Benedict XVI’s death on Dec. 31. Two weeks later, the conservative Australian...

    The AP Interview: Pope says homosexuality not a crimePope Francis criticized laws that criminalize homosexuality as “unjust,” saying God loves all his children just as they are and called on Catholic bishops who support the laws to welcome LGBTQ people into the church.“Being homosexual isn’t a crime,” Francis said during an exclusive interview Tuesday with The Associated Press.Francis acknowledged that Catholic bishops in some parts of the world support laws that criminalize homosexuality or discriminate against the LGBTQ community, and he himself referred to the issue in terms of “sin.” But he attributed such attitudes to cultural backgrounds, and said...

    Cuban priest Jose Conrado Rodríguez Alegre sent an open letter to Pope Francis in which he reprimanded him for his silence in the face of outrage by various totalitarian regimes.Especially Cuba. According to the Catholic parish priest of the San Francisco de Paula Church, in Trinidad, Sancti Spiritus, “We know very well that when the Holy See does not explicitly and firmly defend the victims, totalitarian governments feel free to take action against their victims.” “I must admit that it has become more difficult for me to honestly affirm that ‘The Pope often surprises me, but he never lets me...

    American Thinker ^ | 09/06/2022 | Christopher Skeet
    Pope Francis doesn’t like America. Pope Francis doesn’t like capitalism. It is unclear whether Pope Francis even likes Catholicism. Whatever the case may be, he seems to be doing everything he can to dissuade Catholics from remaining in the Church, and to keep prospective Catholics from joining. When certain Christian leaders, such as the former Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, or the Southern Baptist Convention president, J.D. Greear, speak, nobody listens. Why? Because they sacrificed Christendom, and the glorious civilization it produced, upon the altar of wokeness a long time ago. When the pope speaks, people still listen. But that’s...

Superintendent of Schools Dr. Toni Jones said the school district was made aware of the video Tuesday night, adding, “We intend to do a full investigation and until that time, we will not make any public statements.

    The Decline of Catholicism in Latin America A recent Wall Street Journal report shines a light on it.Catholicism is rapidly losing ground to Protestants in Latin America, according to the Wall Street Journal. “Seven countries in the region — Uruguay, the Dominican Republic and five in Central America — had a majority of non-Catholics in 2018, according to a survey by Latinobarómetro, a Chilean-based pollster,” it reports. “In a symbolic milestone, Brazil, which has the most Catholics of any country in the world, is expected to become minority-Catholic as soon as this year, according to estimates by academics that track...

While taking about the vice of homosexuality, Francis said,“Respect everyone. The Lord is good and will save everyone — do not say this aloud [laughs] — but the Lord wants to save everyone. Please do not make the Church deny her truth. Many, many people of homosexual orientation approach the Sacrament of Penance, they approach to ask priests for advice, the...

The Catholic Church in the Netherlands has entered such an unstoppable spiral, according to research by the Trouw newspaper, that eight out of ten parishes are in the red and will have to be closed. From 1970 to 2008, 400 Catholic churches were demolished or converted. Since then, the rate has accelerated dramatically. Two churches, on average, close every week. One fifth of all the churches in Holland have already been converted. Holland still has six thousand churches....

The president spoke about Pope Francis at a press conference with reporters in Europe after the G20 Summit. “This is a man of great empathy. He’s a man who understands that part of his Christianity is to reach out and forgive,” Biden said.

    ROME — As “soft totalitarianism” coincides with an erosion of civil liberties, and a “woke”-fueled “cancel culture” leads many religious people and social conservatives to self-censor, bestselling author Rod Dreher, offers his own insights and solutions, culled from the experiences of those who suffered under communism in the Soviet bloc. In his acclaimed book Live Not By Lies — A Manual For Christian Dissidents, published in September 2020, he notes how these citizens recognized the seeds of tyranny in the West long ago, and have been trying to warn Westerners ever since...
  • Nancy Pelosi’s Abortion Defense Signals Alarming Trend

    Politicians who support pro-abortion legislation are engaging in a new trend: publicly citing their faith while addressing abortion. This easily leads to confusion when a politician’s position on abortion disagrees with his or her religion. It’s a distinction that many in the media all too often miss. Most recently, these comments tying abortion and faith together are from politicians who identify as Catholic, a religion that recognizes abortion as a grave evil. The latest example comes from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who openly cited her Catholic faith while defending taxpayer-funded abortion. “As a devout Catholic and mother of five...

    In the fourth century, St. Ambrose of Milan spoke truth to power. U.S. bishops could learn something from him.On Saturday, New Mexico state Sen. Joe Cervantes, a Democrat from Las Cruces, tweeted that because he voted to repeal a state law that criminalized abortion, he was denied communion by Bishop Peter Baldacchino, apparently after several warnings (something the senator conveniently neglected to mention).I was denied communion last night by the Catholic bishop here in Las Cruces and based on my political office. My new parish priest has indicated he will do the same after the last was run off. Please...

    Leftist media is politicizing the bishops’ meeting — not the other way around. And their almost every interpretation of the meeting is misguided and blatantly false.Last week, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops voted to advance a document that will discuss “Eucharistic coherence,” which Archbishop Samuel J. Aquila called an “opportunity for me and all bishops to recommit ourselves to an unapologetic preaching of Jesus Christ.” In the aftermath, corporate media once again proved themselves to be arbiters of hypocrisy, with headline after headline criticizing the church for allegedly politicizing the Eucharist.Among others, NPR reported “Bishops Vote to Rethink...
