    [Catholic Caucus] “Dignitas Infinita” as a Naturalistic Vision of MankindFollowing the presentation in Rome of the Declaration on Human Dignity, Dignitas infinita, the most frequent reactions, including in so-called conservative circles, are focused on its reminder of the prohibition of abortion, surrogate motherhood, euthanasia, assisted suicide, gender theory and sex reassignment, not to mention its plea for respect for the disabled. None of this is new, nor should it be. What needs to be analyzed, however, are the arguments deployed and the principles asserted. As might be expected, the Declaration Dignitas Infinita (“infinite dignity”) is, despite many traditional assertions, in...

    How Do We Combat the Catholic Itching Ears Syndrome?There is a perpetual battle between two sides: on the side of God are sound doctrine and truth; and on the side of Satan are fables and the desires of those with itching ears. How did we get to this point at which sincere Protestants offer us their condolences for the Francis scandal, while wayward Catholics — including the most powerful bishops and cardinals — denounce us for rejecting obvious heresies? St. Paul’s words about itching ears give us some guidance in evaluating this question:“Preach the word: be instant in season, out...

  • Humanism's Slippery Slope Of Moral Relativism:

    The women marrying themselves movement is growing. They even have a name for it: Sologamy. (If the link is dead, you can google "CNN Women marrying themselves" and pull it up. JAG Writes: The sexual revolution that started in the 60's has not yet hit bottom-Sodom. But it will. Just give it time. It'll get there. Conservatives who warned about the slippery slope in the 60's were mocked and vilified -- but they were proven correct about the slippery slope -- once you eliminate the traditional definition of marriage and redefine it, then you are on the slippery slope...

    For nearly 11 years ACU has had a friendly and supportive agreement with Arizona’s largest school district, the Washington Elementary School District, to provide the district with student-teachers to support it. In a time when finding teachers and support staff was increasingly difficult, Washington Elementary appreciated the free assistance from ACU students.That “appreciation” evaporated overnight on February 23, when the five-member school board voted unanimously to end that agreement. It was a noisy event, with parents voicing their unhappiness with the decision.

    James Croft has become the first humanist to be appointed to lead a chaplaincy, pastoral, and spiritual care team at a UK university. He has been appointed to the role of ‘University Chaplain and Lead Faith Advisor’ at the University of Sussex. Humanists UK has hailed his appointment as a landmark moment, and hopes that it will encourage other universities and institutions to embrace a more inclusive approach when it comes to providing person-centred care for students. James officially started his new role on 6 February. Non-religious pastoral care is like-minded support that encompasses the emotional, moral, ethical, and existential...

    Archbishop Viganò: The Kingship of Christ is not limited to the Church, but extends to all nationsThe doctrine of the kingship of Christ constitutes a discrimen between the Catholic Church and the “conciliar Church;” indeed, it is the point of separation between Catholic orthodoxy and neomodernist heterodoxy, because the followers of laicism and liberal secularism cannot accept that the Lordship of Our Lord extends to the civil sphere, thereby removing it from being subject to the arbitrariness of the powerful or the will of the manipulable populace. Yet the very idea that authority has its foundation in a transcendent principle...

The report shows that 71% of tracked cell phones end-up in Republican Congressional districts.Catholic Charities is one of the organizations specifically singled-out by Heritage in its analysis. In phase four of its investigation, Heritage focused on geofencing Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley, located in San Juan, Texas.

    [Catholic Caucus] The Courage to Commit to God as the World Goes to Hell“Young and old, if we do not go toward the Savior and His grace, we have nothing left. It is always an error to cling to human values, but today it is fatal because these are crumbling.” (The Courage to be Afraid, p. 162)As discussed in a previous article, when Fr. Marie-Dominique Molinié, O.P. preached the 1953 retreat (to Dominican nuns) that forms the basis for his recently translated The Courage to Be Afraid, he could not have known how truly prophetic and important certain portions of...

    The Biden administration is raising up an army of atheist missionaries. The government recently announced plans to fund a program that would send Americans abroad to promote atheism and humanism in South/Central Asia, North Africa and the Middle East. The program would be funded by your tax dollars - as much as a half million dollars per organization. They are literally going to use a government tithe to spread a godless message of hopelessness to the world. Congressman Jim Banks, the Republican from Indiana, is demanding answers — writing in a letter to President Biden and Secretary of State Antony...

    Sometimes, atheists can be downright religious. On Monday, the American Humanist Association (AHA), which advocates for a “nontheistic worldview,” turned on one of the most prominent atheists in the world, Richard Dawkins. The AHA rescinded an award it gave Dawkins back in 1996, apparently for the heresy of raising questions about transgender identity.The AHA awarded Dawkins the Humanist of the Year Award in 1996, recognizing the atheist evolutionary biologist as “an exemplar of humanist values.” AHA cited the “communication of scientific concepts to the public” as a vital part of giving that award to Dawkins, who had published the influential...

  • Compulsory lessons in sex and atheism “could cause chaos” in Welsh schools

    Minister for Education, Kirsty Williams, is pushing an education Bill which requires all pupils to study atheism or ‘non-religious’ views such as Humanism with no parental right of withdrawal. Under the new system a non-religious committee in each area is given a veto power over all religious teaching. So humanists, who actively oppose all religion, are to be handed control over religious teaching in schools. The sensitive issue of sex education is also being given a total rewrite, imposing compulsory sex education for all pupils from the age of three. All existing safeguards on inappropriate materials are scrapped by the...

Un rito promettente per altre culture” (“Pope Francis and the ‘Roman Missal for the Dioceses of Zaire.’ A Promising Rite for Other Cultures”).Its preface is by Francis. He shows a highly emotional and diffuse understanding of the liturgy, calling it “something that touches the soul, the thought, the sensitivity, the cultural world of people.”For Francis “the liturgy must touch the hearts” and “be evocative,” a postulate, contrasting with his own dry celebrations.The Zairean...

    EXCLUSIVE: Interview on “Fratelli Tutti” with Bishop Athanasius Schneider ROME, October 13, 2020 (The Remnant) — Although Pope Francis’ new encyclical Fratelli Tutti contains positive elements, overall it “lacks a clearly supernatural horizon” and the proclamation of the truth that Christ is the “indispensable source of true fraternity,” Bishop Athanasius Schneider has said.In an exclusive interview with The Remnant (see full text below), the auxiliary bishop of Astana, Kazakhstan, criticizes the document for mischaracterizing St. Francis, advancing religious relativism, and construing spiritual and theological realities in a “naturalistic and rationalistic manner” that exacerbates the “decades-old crisis of the weakening of...
