Threats To The Nation

June 14, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on Threats To The Nation

By DEACON MIKE MANNO Last week I tried to cover some of the threats to our Church by the forces of darkness. This week I’d like to turn my attention to our nation. Both topics, considering the state of the world today, can be unsettling to consider. I understand that. Bear with me, however, for one last column on the topic, for a while anyway.I don’t necessarily want to date myself, but I grew up partly during the time of the Red Scare when people were finding Communists behind every corner and under every bed. I remember finding out about most of those things as a kid watching the old black-and-white television news programs. I have vague memories of Douglas…Continue Reading

Mid-May Coincidence . . . Biden Parishioners Ask His Reform; Possible Virus Start Causes Red Faces

June 13, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on Mid-May Coincidence . . . Biden Parishioners Ask His Reform; Possible Virus Start Causes Red Faces

By DEXTER DUGGAN Some pro-life parishioners at a Delaware church often attended by Joe Biden published a prominent half-page open letter to the president in their area’s largest daily paper in mid-May, calling on him to reform his life to honor the fundamental Catholic teaching he rejects as he promotes grave violations against human dignity.Meanwhile, at about the same time in 2021 but as an entirely separate development, speculation about the origin of the COVID-19 pandemic took on a new aspect when the possibility the virus may have emerged from a Communist Chinese laboratory began to be seriously considered by powerbrokers.A coincidental link between the two developments was Donald Trump. Some people had argued that his presidency had to be…Continue Reading

Will History Repeat Itself?

June 12, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on Will History Repeat Itself?

By CHRISTOPHER MANION The political scene in Washington today bears a curious resemblance to that of twenty years ago. Back then, as a result of the 2000 elections, a single political party controlled the White House, the Senate, and the House of Representatives.That time around, it was Republicans who had prevailed, but their control of the Senate was, to quote the Duke of Wellington, “a close-run thing.” With fifty Republicans and fifty Democrats, the Senate majority was determined with the tie-breaking vote of the newly elected vice president, Dick Cheney. As a result, for the first time in 48 years, a Republican president could count on Republican majorities on both sides of Capitol Hill.All that changed on June 6, 2001,…Continue Reading

The Battle Of Lepanto

June 11, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on The Battle Of Lepanto

By JOE SIXPACK It was the end of Christendom, or so many people thought. The Muslims of the Ottoman Empire were ravaging Europe, taking country after country as they moved further to the West toward their ultimate goal of sacking Rome and destroying the Catholic Church.It seemed that Christian forces had one desperate final play, which was to defeat the Ottoman Empire at Lepanto, immediately off the coast of Greece. If the Muslims won the Battle of Lepanto, there would be nothing stopping them from marching on Rome, capturing the Vatican, and destroying the Holy See — in effect, destroying the Catholic Church.As forces of the Holy League and the Ottomans gathered for this great naval battle, the Spaniard commander…Continue Reading

Big Media Say “Facts” Come And “Facts” Go… And You Can Think What You Want Until You Can’t

June 10, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on Big Media Say “Facts” Come And “Facts” Go… And You Can Think What You Want Until You Can’t

By DEXTER DUGGAN When an expert tells you he follows the science but you see his astrology books on the shelf and Tarot cards and Ouija board on the table, you’re justified in being as skeptical of him as he claims to be of unscientific methods.People tend to be correct to distrust left-wing politicians who say they must follow the science but are as scared of seeing scientific ultrasound images of preborn babies as a vampire is of a crucifix.For secularists who claim to reject miracles, they attribute wondrous powers to the “magical birth canal,” which in a few inches transforms an inert glob of useless tissue into a fully human baby upon delivery — or maybe a day or…Continue Reading

A Declaration Of War

June 9, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on A Declaration Of War

By CHRISTOPHER MANION On February 22, 2020, Big Tech declared war on Steven Mosher.Mosher, president of the Population Research Institute, is a longtime China scholar, and pro-life leader. His crime? He had written a scathing op-ed with a blunt headline: “Don’t buy China’s story: The coronavirus may have leaked from a lab.” Mosher had monitored reports in China’s domestic media and intelligence sources for weeks; he determined that yes, the virus now threatening the world might well be “Made in China.”Mosher’s op-ed appeared in the New York Post, one of America’s major newspapers. His salvo was the first shot fired in a historic saga that continues today. The most likely source of the virus, he wrote, was China’s Wuhan Institute…Continue Reading

A Beacon Of Light… Catholic Education Began With Christ

June 8, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on A Beacon Of Light… Catholic Education Began With Christ

By FR. RICHARD D. BRETON JR. (Editor’s Note: Fr. Richard D. Breton Jr. is a priest of the Diocese of Norwich, Conn. He received his BA in religious studies and his MA in dogmatic theology from Holy Apostles College and Seminary in Cromwell, Conn.) + + Last week we began our series dedicated to Catholic Education. This week we will briefly look at the history of the establishment of Catholic Education.It is a very usual trait of the human being to remember the last words, the last wish, the last glance, the last will of someone who has passed from this world to the next. Christ has given us that opportunity in relation to Himself.In the last chapter of the…Continue Reading

Time To Take A Stand And Defend The Faith

June 7, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on Time To Take A Stand And Defend The Faith

By DEACON MIKE MANNO I am, what one would call, a cradle Catholic. I was born, baptized, and sent to Catholic schools by parents who not only took their faith seriously, they endeavored to instill that faith in me. For the most part, I guess, it worked. I graduated from a Catholic high school and went to a Jesuit college.I was Catholic. And later, at the suggestion of my family and several parishioners, I began studying for the diaconate and was ordained. Over the years I have developed a great love for the Church, its history, and its teachings; and from early on I developed a great devotion to Our Blessed Mother and spent much time researching her apparitions and…Continue Reading

Some Things Painful To Remember . . . Still, Biden Wants To Give You Too Much Suffering To Forget

June 6, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on Some Things Painful To Remember . . . Still, Biden Wants To Give You Too Much Suffering To Forget

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — As June began, conservative radio talk host James T. Harris (Phoenix-based KFYI, 550 AM) was asked why he thought the Tulsa, Okla., race riot of exactly 100 years earlier had been widely ignored until recently.Harris, a black man who previously was a high-school history teacher, said that the instructional materials he himself had used lacked this information, so he had to come up with it for his own students.But why had it been lacking? Harris said there were facts that the establishment preferred to ignore, such as the role played by the Ku Klux Klan because it was allied with the Democratic Party.(Indeed, the intellectual “progressive” Democrat Woodrow Wilson, an open racist, had ended his…Continue Reading

Joe Biden Continues His War On The Unborn

June 5, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on Joe Biden Continues His War On The Unborn

By CHRISTOPHER MANION Donoso Cortes once observed that, when Satan has got you sinning, he doesn’t let you coast; he keeps pushing you downhill. That image comes to mind as The Washington Post’s “very Catholic” Joe Biden continues to lash out against the unborn.Biden’s radical Obama-era advisers, while touting Joe’s image as “moderate” who’s “bringing us together,” are bent on proving that “Donoso’s Law” is no joke.Last week “Biden the Infanticide Radical” emerged once more, as his administration released its proposed Fiscal Year 2022 budget. It includes a provision that reverses the Hyde Amendment, and that is a very big deal. The Hyde Amendment was first passed 45 years ago, and has been included in every U.S. budget since 1976.…Continue Reading
