    Pope Francis apologizes for mistakes of Catholics in meeting with Greek Orthodox leaders in Athens, GreeceAthens, Greece, Dec 4, 2021 / 09:00 amPope Francis apologized for the ways Catholics have contributed to division with Orthodox Christians during a meeting with Greek Orthodox leaders in Athens on Saturday.“Shamefully, patriarch, — I acknowledge this for the Catholic Church — actions and decisions that had little or nothing to do with Jesus and the Gospel, but were instead marked by a thirst for advantage and power, gravely weakened our communion,” the pope said on Dec. 4.“In this way, we let fruitfulness be compromised...

    More than three years after Pope Francis sparked a firestorm of religious debate by telling a young boy that his deceased atheist father might still end up in Heaven, a new study from the Pew Research Center shows a majority of Catholic and mainline Christians also believe people who don’t believe in God will go to Heaven. Data for the study, conducted Sept. 20-26, was collected from a nationally representative sample of 6,485 U.S. adults. Pew researchers decided for the first time to tackle deep philosophical questions like the meaning of life, the purpose of suffering and why bad things...

    There’s an evil, downright demonic ideology that is trying to take control of this planet right now. It’s the satanic cult that teaches us that men can become women, that abortion is a sacrament, that countries and borders are illegitimate, that global finance must reign supreme, that criminals should roam free, that humans need to eat bugs and live in pods for the sake of “the climate.” This is the cult of the Great Reset. It’s a cult that has total, absolute confidence in its own righteousness, no matter how many cities, countries, and lives it ruins. It’s the cult...

    From Vatican II to Abu Dhabi: Debate Between Bishop Schneider and Archbishop Viganò Mgr Athanasius Schneider On February 4, 2019, Pope Francis with the Grand Imam of the Cairo Mosque signed a Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together. On February 24, 2019, Fr. Davide Pagliarani, Superior General of the Society of Saint Pius X denounced this “impious gesture that scorns the First Commandment of God and attributes to the Divine Wisdom, incarnate in Jesus Christ who died for us on the Cross, the statement that ‘the pluralism and the diversity of religions’ is ‘willed by God...

    [Catholic Caucus] ‘Amoris Laetitia’ RevisitedPope Francis' novel approachCatholic doctrine, courtesy of Christ Himself, holds that "anyone who even looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart" (Matthew 5:28). Adultery is, in itself, evil. Anyone in an adulterous relationship is living in a state of grave sin (sin that, if committed with full knowledge and consent, leads to damnation). There is no half-grave sin or one-third-grave sin when it comes to an action that is, per se, evil. Saint Paul warns, "Adulterers will not inherit the Kingdom of God" (1 Corinthians 6:9). And again, Christ...

    Sensus infidelium: How the synodal docs could fuel conflict between laity and bishopsThe Vatican launched on Tuesday its preparatory document and handbook for the Church’s two-year synod on synodality process, which is set to begin next month. Vatican officials were well aware that plans for a two-year process of consultation and discernment have prompted skepticism among both laity and clergy. While some predicted that the release of the synod’s documents might have assuaged critics, the contents of the texts released on Tuesday seem certain to exacerbate criticism, rather than resolve it. Dr. Myriam Wijlens at the launch of the Permanent...
  • Fake Christian Kanye West Sets Himself On Fire For ‘donda’ Listening Party, Then Invites Satanic Singer Marilyn Manson To Join Him On Stage

    I made lots of people mad last year when Kanye West ‘got saved’ and proceeded to hold his Sunday Service ‘church meetings’, pointing out that the whole thing was fake, he didn’t get saved and he’s not a Christian. But what Kanye West did do was use gullible Christians to support his ‘worship’ album, making $400 million in the process. So what’s Kanye up to these days, you ask? Preparing himself for an eternity in Hell by setting himself on fire at the listening party for his upcoming album ‘Donda’ with Marilyn Manson. “Little children, it is the last time:...

    [Catholic Caucus] The little boy whose existence is a threat to the new kind of Church desired by Francis A young boy. A symbol of a wide open future ahead of us. In the Pontifical Mass celebrated in Philadelphia's Cathedral-Basilica of Sts. Peter and Paul on the Feast of the Assumption, a very small boy was photographed at the Communion Rail. His eyes are bright with expectation: he has certainly been taught enough about Our Lord Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament.This little boy is a threat. He is a threat for what he represents: life, family, devotion, all...

    After Taking Down Summorum Pontificum, the New Objective is Inter-CommunionDear friends and enemies of Stilum Curiae, a friend from inside the Vatican Walls tells us – and naturally the news still needs to be verified – that the reigning Pontiff wants to return to concerning himself with Intercommunion, that is, making it possible for the faithful of other non-Catholic Christian confessions to participate in the Eucharist.It is said that the one being charged with this task is the new Secretary of the Congregation for Divine Worship, the Franciscan Archbishop Vittorio Francesco Viola, formerly bishop of Tortona and a teacher at...

    Homosexuals do not need a cure, but accompaniment and discernmentVATICAN CITY (ChurchMilitant.com) - Rome is rejecting the use of "reparative" or "conversion" therapies by Catholic groups to heal homosexuals of same-sex attraction, a Spanish Catholic weekly is reporting. But homosexuals who have benefited from therapy are urging Pope Francis to meet with those who have found healing from unwanted same-sex attraction. The Vatican's Congregation for the Clergy (CC) instructed the Spanish Episcopal Conference (CEE) in June to disavow the Granada-based Truth and Freedom (Verdad y Libertad) apostolate for its practice of reparative therapy, Vida Nueva reported last Thursday.The bishops are...

    Holy Trinity Parish is a bastion of fringe liberal Catholicism in an archdiocese whose leaders have exhibited complicit behavior regarding homosexuality, transgenderism, and abortion.WASHINGTON, June 30, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — The parish council at historic Holy Trinity Catholic Church, the Jesuit-run parish where President Joe Biden normally attends Sunday Mass, has issued a statement declaring that their church “will not deny the Eucharist to persons presenting themselves to receive it.” The parish declaration is clearly a response to the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB) stated intention to draft a formal statement on the Eucharist addressing Church teaching on worthiness to...

    As Catholic Bishops in the United States, we join with the Tyler Clementi Foundation in standing up for at-risk LGBT youth in our country. As we see in the Gospels, Jesus Christ taught love, mercy and welcome for all people, especially for those who felt persecuted or marginalized in any way; and the Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches that LGBT people are to be treated with “respect, compassion and sensitivity.” All people of goodwill should help, support, and defend LGBT youth; who attempt suicide at much higher rates than their straight counterparts; who are often homeless because of families...

    After bishops endured several days of contentious debate over the Church’s Eucharistic disciplinary norms, a group of 60 U.S. Congressional representatives have weighed in, forcing the issue for some bishops from a theoretical debate to one far more practical, immediate, and closer to home. One congressman’s tweet poses a vexing test of leadership for U.S. bishops’ conference president Archbishop Jose Gomez of Los Angeles, with similar tests for other bishops likely to follow. And for Gomez and the congressman, a clock is ticking, and the stakes are high. Archbishop Jose Gomez of Los Angeles. Credit: USCCB Share The Pillar The...

    The month of June has become a yearly event when the LGBTQ community celebrates their pride in their lifestyles. The rainbow, God's sign of His covenant to never again use a flood to destroy the earth, has now been appropriated as a symbol of pride in a lifestyle of sin. On June 7, the Christian rock band Seventh Day Slumber shared an illustration on their Facebook page of Jesus embracing an LGBTQ person with a pink mohawk, the pride colors prominently displayed on the individual's shaved scalp. The caption reads, "This picture is a powerful reminder of who God is,...

    “Bishop” T.D. Jakes blasted white evangelical Christians during a “woke” interview with the far-left magazine, “The Atlantic.” Jakes, pastor of The Potter’s House Church in Texas, was interviewed for a story titled, “T.D. Jakes on How White Evangelicals Lost Their Way.” “I think white evangelicals lost sight of “What would Jesus do?” because they only define Jesus in very narrow terms,” Jakes told the leftist magazine. It sounds like something Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton would say. Is the black bishop simply misinformed or does he harbor bigoted feelings toward white Christians? Following, is the pertinent portion of the interview:...

    The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) has taken more steps in it's rapid decline into apostasy as it appointed the denominations first transgender bishop. Megan Rohrer was elected on 8 May to lead the Sierra Pacific Synod of what is the largest Lutheran institution in the United States with 3.3 million baptized members and over 8,900 local congregations. The newly elected bishop will oversee around 200 local congregations in Northern California and Northern Nevada in the next six years, starting in July. It was also announced that the bishop-elect should be addressed with the pronouns "they/their". Rohr was the...

As in the One World Religion foretold in the book of Revelation. “And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

In a statement Wednesday, FRC announced that Barna, who founded the influential evangelical polling organization Barna Group, joined the organization as a senior fellow of their newly launched Center for Biblical Worldview. FRC President Tony Perkins said that the center is "designed to give Christians a firm foundation so that they can engage the culture by being rooted in God’s Word." “Every Christian can and should obtain...

    I have been a musician since the age of 9 years old, a songwriter and performing artist for many years in addition to working as an actor in Hollywood before getting saved in 1991. You would think that someone with my background in the performing arts would be a natural fit in the Contemporary Christian Music scene, but you would be wrong. From the moment I got saved, the songs that resonated with my born again spirit were the old hymns like ‘Blessed Assurance’, ‘Saved By The Blood’, and countless others that sing of Jesus Christ. Contemporary Christian Music sings...
