Longtime Southern Arizonan . . . Provides Facts On Border Problems That Newcomers May Misunderstand

June 27, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on Longtime Southern Arizonan . . . Provides Facts On Border Problems That Newcomers May Misunderstand

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — “Brothers and sisters, let the friendship begin,” the latest bishop of the Diocese of Tucson said welcomingly at his installation Mass last November, according to a report by Catholic News Service. Bishop Edward Weisenburger previously served as bishop of Salina, Kans., then succeeded veteran Tucson Bishop Gerald Kicanas following Kicanas’ retirement from the southern Arizona diocese that extends along the international line with Mexico. Weisenburger’s proffered friendship appeared to have grown brittle by June, however, when he suggested canonical penalties against practicing Catholics who provide border protection for the United States and have to try to deal sensitively with minors being brought along in the continued massive invasion of illegal immigrants. Hysterical coverage in anti-Donald…Continue Reading

Separation Of Families . . . Doesn’t Happen Only Through Immigration Policies

June 26, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on Separation Of Families . . . Doesn’t Happen Only Through Immigration Policies

By REY FLORES I was reflecting on immigration and family issues just before President Donald Trump on June 20 issued his executive order. The fake news media continue to push their anti-Trump narrative, and the separation of illegal immigrant families has been the left-wing’s latest political soup du jour. Images and videos of crying mothers and their little children were broadcast and published through all forms of communications media. All were deliberately designed to pull on the heartstrings of the American public at large. Some fake news clowns even referred to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention centers as “Trump Detention Centers.” Little, if anything, has ever been mentioned about the squalor and filth many illegal immigrants lived in…Continue Reading

Harrison Bergeron’s America

June 25, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on Harrison Bergeron’s America

By MIKE MANNO There is a struggle going on in America today that is as old as the republic. It is the clash between freedom and equality, and opinions on either side are gradually ripping apart the fabric of society. “Why should there be a clash between freedom and equality?” you might ask. “Shouldn’t we be for both?” Well, those are the same questions my political science students would ask. And the answer is both yes and no. Let me explain: The concept of freedom, as in “freedom of” speech, religion, press, and so on, allows people to follow their dreams and desires without hindrance from the government. Equality, however, subordinates some freedoms for egalitarian reasons. An example: The concept…Continue Reading

Fiery Disputes Over Border . . . Smoke Out The Double Standards Used For Illegal Entrants

June 24, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on Fiery Disputes Over Border . . . Smoke Out The Double Standards Used For Illegal Entrants

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — Sometimes illegal traffickers start fires near the international line with Mexico so the smoke will divert attention from their unauthorized border activities elsewhere. Well, it turns out that flaming diversions aren’t done only by Latino smugglers. Much began to be smoked out as June advanced about double standards and hypocrisy over the longstanding use of innocent children as pawns for border issues. It’s entirely legitimate to want to avoid suffering when possible for little ones. However, it’s not the fault of President Donald Trump or his supporters if wandering adult illegal aliens are tricked or sweet-talked by open-borders elitists into bringing vulnerable youngsters to the chaotic international line. When Barack Obama as president was confronted…Continue Reading

Breakthrough: Bishops Now Willing To Obey Canon Law!

June 23, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on Breakthrough: Bishops Now Willing To Obey Canon Law!

By CHRISTOPHER MANION Four years ago, when asked about American bishops, pro-abortion politicians, and canon 915, New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan said: “Most don’t think it’s something for which we have to go to the mat.” He was right. In the years since, most bishops have ignored that provision of the Code of Canon Law. But their resistance miraculously evaporated at their recent meeting in Fort Lauderdale, where a resounding majority of bishops applauded the suggestion that canon 915 be resurrected. Curiously, the issue which ignited such widespread support was not abortion, but immigration. There are two stories here. First, the bishops. For years, bishops have been a leading partner in the national coalition advocating amnesty for illegal aliens. Like…Continue Reading

Will Ireland’s Fall Lead To Argentina’s Collapse?

June 22, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on Will Ireland’s Fall Lead To Argentina’s Collapse?

By SHAUN KENNEY While the Catholic world is still reeling from Ireland’s capitulation to the abortion industry despite heroic resistance from within, the pro-aborts have set their sights upon a new target: Argentina. Argentina’s Catholics are starting from a position where Ireland’s Catholics felt themselves to be about ten years ago. Back in 2004, about two out of every three Argentinians opposed a further liberalization of the current abortion laws — laws that still permit the destruction of over a half million Argentinian babies every year. Yet despite being the home turf of one Jorge Cardinal Bergoglio, not only has support for Argentina’s current abortion laws come under siege, so too is the Church itself. Mass attendance — the most…Continue Reading

Mexican-American Says… Men Of Other Nations Must Fight Corruption In Their Homelands

June 21, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on Mexican-American Says… Men Of Other Nations Must Fight Corruption In Their Homelands

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — On the same day that a U.S. Border Patrol agent was shot in an area of high illegal-trafficking activity near Arizona’s international line with Mexico, a fifth-generation Mexican-American in Phoenix coincidentally noted to The Wanderer that some men of other nations aren’t being properly encouraged to fight corruption and suffering in their homelands. Rudy Pena, a registered Democrat and political conservative, remarked that he has “been around politics all my life,” with his father having served as a state representative in the Arizona legislature, and his uncle a six-term Arizona state senator. Pena said he is working to get his own blog, “The Conservatino,” running before elections later this year. In a Q-and-A interview published…Continue Reading

Does Scripture Allow For Pre-adamic Animal Suffering?

June 20, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on Does Scripture Allow For Pre-adamic Animal Suffering?

Fr. Brian W. Harrison, O.S.   I missed seeing Philip Trower’s reply (“Creation and Evolution Revisited”, The Wanderer, October 26, 2017, p. 8A) to my critique of his original article on evolution until months after it was published, so I apologize to The Wanderer and to you, dear reader, for the tardiness of this further response. It will help to begin by refreshing our memories. The debate between Mr. Trower and myself is over whether, in order to explain theologically the millions of years of innocent animal pain, terror, and bloodshed which according to the ‘long-ages’ evolutionary worldview occurred prior to the Fall of man, we may postulate not only that God gave the angels “power to influence the evolutionary…Continue Reading

John Kippley Says . . . About 20 Dioceses Now Require NFP Classes For Engaged Couples

June 20, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on John Kippley Says . . . About 20 Dioceses Now Require NFP Classes For Engaged Couples

By PEGGY MOEN MINNEAPOLIS – “They’re showing signs of exercising leadership,” said John Kippley about the U.S. bishops and the acceptance of natural family planning. Kippley was at the Church of St. Helena here June 7 to keynote the Twenty-Second Annual Benefit Banquet for The Catholic Servant, a locally based Catholic publication. He is the founder and president of Natural Family Planning International, Inc. Following his address to the banquet, The Wanderer asked Kippley if he sees any hopeful signs for the growth of NFP in the Church. Kippley noted that about 20 U.S. dioceses now require engaged couples to take an NFP course. Kippley said the U.S. bishops are “aware they dropped the ball, pastorally and theologically,” on Humanae…Continue Reading

Miss America, Mickey Mouse, The NFL, And More Madness

June 19, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on Miss America, Mickey Mouse, The NFL, And More Madness

By REY FLORES A couple of weeks ago, Miss America pageant officials announced that the swimsuit portion of the pageant would be scrapped entirely. Political correctness, particularly the #MeToo movement, has infected and officially killed another traditional American institution. Is it a case of modesty, or of politically correct madness? Let me be clear. I agree wholeheartedly that a woman’s body should be respected as much as her entire being, but when a beauty pageant is no longer about beauty, then it should simply cease to exist. Instead, the “competition,” as it will be known from here on, has become yet another stage for fake feminism, liberal political tripe, and another lame attempt at erasing the natural attraction of the…Continue Reading
