Benedict XVI Admits Qualms of Conscience about Vatican II

September 27, 2016 breaking Comments Off on Benedict XVI Admits Qualms of Conscience about Vatican II

After the German publisher Droemer Verlag first released it on 9 September 2016, much has already been deeply discussed and variously reported about Benedict XVI’s new interview-book, Benedikt XVI. Letzte Gespräche (Benedict XVI – Last Conversations) which so far has only been published in the German language. It has been shown, for example, how the former pope supports whole-heartedly Pope Francis’ papacy and how he still defends his decision to leave his Petrine office, not calling it a flight, but, rather, a calm, fearless move on his part. It has now also been reported that the former pope insists that the Church was in a good state when he himself decided to leave his office. Another part of the book,…Continue Reading

Washington D.C., Sep 20, 2016 / 03:53 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Nearly 50 years after the “prophetic” papal document Humanae Vitae, the Catholic Church’s longstanding teaching against contraception continues to promote the human good, said a group of Catholic thinkers on Tuesday. “We hold that Catholic teaching respects the true dignity of the human person and is conducive to happiness,” said hundreds of Catholic scholars in a Sept. 20 document. “Humanae Vitae speaks against the distorted view of human sexuality and intimate relationships that many in the mode

“Catholic” Tim Kaine: “I Believe Women Should Be Able to” Have an Abortion

September 20, 2016 breaking Comments Off on “Catholic” Tim Kaine: “I Believe Women Should Be Able to” Have an Abortion

Yesterday on Meet the Press, Democratic Vice Presidential pick Tim Kaine, attempted to make his pitch to Millennials by saying that they agree with Hillary Clinton and the Democratic platform on the big issues. One of the big issues is obviously abortion. Part of what he said was: “Do you believe women should be able to make their own health care decisions, or don’t you? Millennials do, Hillary Clinton and I do, Donald Trump doesn’t.” First of all, Kaine was using the typical lingo of the abortion movement. He means “abortion” when he talks about women making their own health decisions. Secondly, he’s wrong that Millennials support the extreme positions

Alberta bishops: No Communion for ‘remarried’ Catholics unless they practice continence

September 16, 2016 breaking Comments Off on Alberta bishops: No Communion for ‘remarried’ Catholics unless they practice continence

EDMONTON, Alberta, September 15, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) — The Catholic Church has not changed her practice towards divorced and civilly remarried Catholics — despite what the faithful may have been led to believe through the media or other sources, the Alberta and Northwest Territory bishops stated in pastoral guidelines released Wednesday. It is “erroneous” to conclude that divorced and civilly remarried Catholics can receive Holy Communion “if they simply have a conversation with a priest,” stated the guidelines, signed by the six bishops responsible for over 1,000,000 Catholics in five dioceses. The 10-page document is intended to “answer the call of Pope Francis in his Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia, particularly to assist priests in their duty to accompany those Catholics who…Continue Reading

FISHER Mrs. Phyllis Schlafly has been called “One of the 25 most influential women in the United States” (World Almanac), and Good Housekeeping magazine said she is “one of the 10 most ad­mired women in the world.” Those accolades are understandable. The attractive and dynamic mother has, with her lawyer husband, Fred, raised six high-achieving children, and she has almost single-handedly defeated the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA). The Alton, Ill., housewife received a Master of Arts degree from Harvard University in 1945, and was awarded a law degree by the Washington University Law School in 1978. As a practicing attorney she has testified before numerous State and Congressional Committees. Her first book, A Choice Not An Echo,…Continue Reading

September 14, 2016 breaking Comments Off on Search Your Feelings…

Allow me to be lowbrow for a moment. Because let’s be honest, I’m a child of American pop-culture, and no matter how much I reach for erudition, I grew up in the 80s. So yes, I think of things in terms of Star Wars. We’ve been having a lot of discussion lately over whether or not Francis is the real pope. As I said to you the other day, on a practical level, this is immaterial. Yes, it’d be bette

Churches in the People’s Republic of Massachusetts have grave concerns about a new anti-discrimination law that could force congregations to accommodate the transgender community – under the threat of fines and jail time. Click here to join Todd’s American Dispatch: a must-read for Conservatives! The law, which goes into effect in October, does not specifically mention churches or other houses of worship. However, the attorney general, along with the government commission assigned to enforce the law, have a different point of view. Attorney General Maura Healey wrote that places of public accommodation include: “auditoriums, convention centers, lecture
