    No matter how bad things get in this country, you can rest assured that we will always find a way to sink even lower. From the very lowest levels of society all the way to the very highest levels of society, the level of depravity that we are now witnessing all around us is absolutely stunning. At this point, most Americans do not have any sort of a solid moral foundation, and it shows. Everyone is just basically doing whatever seems right in their own eyes, and that has resulted in complete and utter chaos. We are a very, very...

    ‘People Are Afraid to Speak Honestly’ They meet once a month on Zoom: a dozen doctors from around the country with distinguished careers in different specialities. They vary in ethnicity, age and sexual orientation. Some work for the best hospitals in the U.S. or teach at top medical schools. Others are dedicated to serving the most vulnerable populations in their communities. The meetings are largely a support group. The members share their concerns about what’s going on in their hospitals and universities, and strategize about what to do. What is happening, they say, is the rapid spread of a deeply...

    Recently, researchers at State University of New York determined that descendants of immigrants to the United States typically lost the ability to speak their mother tongue by the third generation. Something similar, but far more serious, seems to be happening with Christians in an increasingly post-Christian culture. Each successive generation is losing the understanding of, not to mention the will to live by, Christian sexual morality. Two years ago, a Pew Research survey found that half of American Christians think casual sex is “sometimes or always” morally acceptable. The slight silver-lining in that survey was that evangelical Protestants were by...

    Globalization has afforded non-governmental organizations, the ultra wealthy, and Big Tech power and influence on a global scale once reserved for the world’s superpower states. The World Economic Forum, which describes itself as an international organization for public-private co-operation, has proposed a “Great Reset” initiative to rework global economics to address the challenges of the post-pandemic world. The WEF paints a picture of a 2030 in which America will lose its place as the preeminent superpower, a billion people will be displaced by climate change, carbon will be taxed globally, and “you will own nothing and be happy.” The WEF...

    We have witnessed a horrible year. And many of us recognize some of what is happening around us as propaganda, gaslighting, and out right manipulation. We ponder who and when something will be done. We do not have blinders on and yet do not understand what we witness happening before us. Earlier this morning I read on another thread, Princeton University professor and MSNBC contributor Eddie Glaude, Jr. refer to the moral rot in our society and that President Trump is its avatar. We use the word avatar for many different things in the modern world, but consider the first...

    A Democratic Party leader in Colorado says the 2020 election amounts to a "revolution," meaning lying, cheating and stealing are morally acceptable actions if they help bring about the defeat of President Trump in November. Kristopher Jacks, a member of the executive committee of the Colorado Democratic Party, expressed his beliefs in an undercover video released by Project Veritas. "I am going to do everything morally acceptable to win. I will lie. I will cheat. I will steal. Because that's morally acceptable in this political environment. Absolutely. We are pirates on a pirate ship," he said. "I want to make...

    All of my life, I have said that the left’s moral compass is broken. And all of my life, I was wrong. Why I was wrong explains both the left and the moral crisis we are in better than almost any other explanation. I was wrong because in order to have a broken moral compass, you need to have a moral compass to begin with. But the left doesn’t have one. This is not meant as an attack. It is a description of reality. The left regularly acknowledges that it doesn’t think in terms of good and evil. Most of...

    Pro-life priests denounce ‘Catholics for Biden’ as scam: ‘No Catholic can vote for Biden’ 'The whole idea of Catholics for Biden is a scam' September 4, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – A group calling itself “Catholics for Biden” — created to generate grassroots Catholic support for the pro-abortion Democrat Presidential candidate — launched Thursday night with a virtual national Zoom meeting, attracting 1,100 participants. Catholics who tuned into the online meeting were repeatedly steered away from being “single issue” voters as a means to help them overcome qualms of conscience regarding the former VP and his running mate, Kamala Harris, who have...

    My research in bioethics focuses on questions like how to induce those who are noncooperative to get on board with doing what’s best for the public good. To me, it seems the problem of coronavirus defectors could be solved by moral enhancement: like receiving a vaccine to beef up your immune system, people could take a substance to boost their cooperative, pro-social behavior. Could a psychoactive pill be the solution to the pandemic? ... But I believe society may be better off, both in the short term as well as the long, by boosting not the body’s ability to fight...

    As more of our political elite joins the mobs in the streets to conflate the death of George Floyd with a general indictment of America as a racist and evil nation, black Americans, more than anyone, will suffer. Former President George W. Bush has now weighed in to falsely accuse our nation of "systemic racism." President Bush was born to a life of privilege. Yet he fell victim to alcoholism and turned to faith and religion to take back responsibility and control of his life. Yet he has insufficient respect for black Americans, most of whom are born into circumstances...

    Much-hyped Moderna mRNA-1273 Covid-19 Vaccine Uses Aborted Fetal Cells – Sanofi Pasteur’s Version Does Not (Clearwater, FL) In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, pharmaceutical companies are racing to provide a vaccine to prevent further spread of the disease. Unfortunately, Moderna, the company that has been recently touted in news headlines for its developing mRNA-1273 vaccine to fight the virus, uses aborted fetal cell cells. Debi Vinnedge, Executive Director of Children of God for Life, a prolife organization whose mission is to end the use of aborted fetal material in vaccines and medicines, said her suspicions were raised after checking Moderna’s...

Is this what America is coming to morally and ethically, or have America past the point? When did America pass the point?
  • The American People’s Moral Pulse Is Stronger Than American Elites’

    The American people have a stronger moral pulse than America’s leaders in government, business, media, universities and entertainment — often clumped together as “elites.” And I think this is true in a bi-partisan nature if talking politics: Basic registered Democrats have a stronger moral pulse than Democratic leaders and ditto for basic registered Republicans and Republican leaders. Exceptions abound, but in a broad sense, this seems to be true and demonstrated regularly. Let’s take the latest item in the news that adds to the evidence pile. The NBA’s craven, knee-jerk reaction to the Houston Rockets’ General Manager tweeting out his...

    [Catholic Caucus] John Paul II Institute: Fired Professor Speaks Out “I cannot hide my pain, caused by the fact that the Institute founded by John Paul II was abolished two years ago,” Professor Stanisław Grygiel told AldoMariaValli.it (August 1).For him the recent dismissal of the Institute’s Catholic professors is an act consistent with this decision.Grygiel recounts that John Paul II invited the first professors a few months before the start of the Institute to his apartment, “to meditate with us on the situation in which not only the Church but also the world found itself.”He qualifies it as incomprehensible that...

    [Catholic Caucus] John Paul Institute 2.0 and the systematic purge of the last remaining “Wojtylians” When I was in the Theology section at the Pontifical Lateran University, I would see at the end one of the hallways the doors leading into the John Paul II Institute for Marriage and the Family, founded at the sainted Pope’s behest after Familiaris consortio by the eventual Cardinal (and one of the four Dubia brothers) Carlo Caffarra.  It was a great institution which activated John Paul’s teachings.Francis renamed the place and gave it a new mission in 2017.  Then he appointed new personnel to carry out...

    [Catholic Caucus] Upheaval at John Paul II Family Institute Abp. Vincenzo Paglia oversees sweeping changes at academic institute devoted to marriage and family ROME (ChurchMilitant.com) - Concerns are being raised about major changes unfolding at a pro-family, pro-marriage academic institute overseen by the Vatican. The Pontifical John Paul II Theological Institute for Marriage and Family Science is in the middle of a major shake-up, according to a piece released Wednesday in Italian Catholic publication La Nuova Bussola Quotidiana. Two priests who were chairs of moral theology at the institute, Fr. José Noriega and Msgr. Livio Melina, have now been dismissed from their roles there, as...

    "Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion...are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments." —Charles Carroll, the only Catholic signer of the Declaration of Independence In anticipation of Independence Day, here is another quote in a continuing series on the Founding Fathers of the American Republic. This one, from Charles Carroll, demonstrates the commonly held view that the propagation of Christian concepts of morality is absolutely vital for the maintenance of liberty. This particular quote is taken from a letter of...

Charles Pope “God Wants Me to Be Happy” - A Reflection on a Deeply Flawed Moral Stance One of the questionable, and unfortunately common, forms of moral reasoning today is the rather narcissistic notion that God wants each of us to be happy. Sometimes it is put in the form of a rhetorical question: God wants me to be happy, doesn’t He?And this sort of reasoning (if you want to call it that) is used to justify just about anything. Thus, in pondering divorce, a spouse might point to his...

    [Catholic Caucus] To Renew the Church We Must Be Guided By Her Faith, Morals – Cardinal Müller ROME - Countering critics of Benedict XVI's recent essay on the scandal of sex abuse in the Church, Cardinal Gerhard Müller on Friday emphasized that Church renewal must be centered on Christ and his teaching. “Rebuilding and renewing the whole Church can only succeed in Christ—if we get our bearings by the Church’s teaching on faith and morals,” the prefect emeritus of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith wrote in an essay published April 26 at First Things. Benedict's essay looked at...
