Justice Department Declares War On Millions Of Families

October 13, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on Justice Department Declares War On Millions Of Families

By CHRISTOPHER MANION Last week, the National School Boards Association (NSBA) which calls itself “The leading advocate for public education,” wrote Joe Biden to request that the federal government launch a war against American families who oppose the massive efforts of the Left to radicalize government school classrooms nationwide.School board members are “facing physical threats because of propaganda purporting the false inclusion of critical race theory (CRT) within classroom instruction and curricula,” the NSBA writes, insisting that CRT doesn’t even exist in government schools.It reminds us of the time when House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D., N.Y.) insisted last year that the riots fomented throughout the country by Black Lives Matter Marxists and Antifa anarchists were a “myth.”So CRT…Continue Reading

A Beacon Of Light . . . One, Holy, Catholic, And Apostolic

October 12, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on A Beacon Of Light . . . One, Holy, Catholic, And Apostolic

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.) + + For the last three weeks we have surveyed the first pillar of the Catechism which invited us to consider the Profession of Faith. We explored our belief in God, in particular, we reflected on God as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Basically, we were reminded of our belief in the Blessed Trinity.Remembering these points, today we will begin to look at the final section of the Creed. We will look at what it means…Continue Reading

Forced Speech Is “Free” Speech?

October 11, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on Forced Speech Is “Free” Speech?

By DEACON MIKE MANNO Okay, how can it be that forced speech is free speech, or even that suppressed speech is also free speech? Well, that’s the brainchild of Judge Mary Briscoe, a Clinton appointee to the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals, which is now being airmailed to the United States Supreme Court.The case comes from Colorado and arises out of the state’s public accommodation law, the same one that the state Civil Rights Commission used to try to punish Masterpiece Cakeshop owner Jack Phillips for refusing to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex wedding. This one has similar issues except it involves wedding promotional videos.Lorie Smith is a web designer and graphic artist who works out of her…Continue Reading

Airborne Sinema Not Only Victim . . . How To Stop A Political Hijacker If He Rules White House Cockpit?

October 10, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on Airborne Sinema Not Only Victim . . . How To Stop A Political Hijacker If He Rules White House Cockpit?

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — The cover page of the German news magazine Der Spiegel showed a photo of the Alps as seen looking out an airliner window.Nothing startling about that, although you expect powerful illustrations to catch your eye at the newsstand. Except this photo was chilling for what it didn’t shriek out, but was all too well understood back when it hit the racks in 2015.The young co-pilot of a Germanwings commercial jet had just intentionally crashed a planeload of people into the French Alps, on March 24, 2015. Such a view from the window may have been one of the last sights doomed passengers saw. They had no reason to expect looming tragedy on the morning flight…Continue Reading

Catholic “Social Justice” Alliance Is All-In For Biden

October 9, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on Catholic “Social Justice” Alliance Is All-In For Biden

By CHRISTOPHER MANION In December 1971, a group of Catholic sisters creates a nationwide “network” of women religious who would trade the spiritual charisms of their communities for a life of political activism devoted to “Social Justice.”The Network Lobby’s first newsletter addressed several specific issues: “international poverty, congressional reform, minimum wage, child care, consumer protection, the environment, farmworker rights, healthcare, opposition to the Vietnam War, prison reform, tax fairness, welfare reform, and women’s rights.”This was the unfortunate reflection of the collapse of religious life throughout much of the West.Not long afterward, Mother Mary Elise, SND, and several valiant coworkers formed the Consortium Perfectae Caritatis. The Consortium welcomed women who sought to preserve the spirit and charisms of their communities, in…Continue Reading

How Should We Treat The Remains Of The Dead?

October 8, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on How Should We Treat The Remains Of The Dead?

By JOE SIXPACK Recently, I was asked what should be done with the remains of our cremated loved ones. More specifically, the questioner realized he knew someone who was keeping the remains and not disposing of them. Let’s deal with that.Just what is a Catholic’s obligation regarding the remains of the dead? Well, let’s give a brief history, then talk about ordinary burial, then talk about cremation.Historically, Christians followed the Jews in disposing of corpses by burial rather than by cremation. The Christian thought was that cremation was an unnatural and violent destruction of the human body, the repository of the Holy Spirit for Catholics who had been baptized. But since no principle of faith would be jeopardized by cremation,…Continue Reading

UN Assembly Drones On

October 7, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on UN Assembly Drones On

By JOHN J. METZLER One of the rites of autumn has been playing out in New York, as the annual UN General Assembly meeting plowed through its list of 193 speakers in under a week.Just before the session started, the South Korean boy band BTS put on a K-pop song and dance routine inside the cavernous Assembly hall.UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres opened the debate with a stark challenge, “We are on the edge of an abyss, and moving in the wrong direction. Our world has never been more threatened.”While presidents and prime ministers droned on in the majestic Assembly hall, the audience was often sparse and not particularly engaged. All the more reason why so many speakers took advantage of…Continue Reading

Although Media Turn Focus Away . . . Arizona Audit Shows Many Votes’ Legality In Question

October 6, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on Although Media Turn Focus Away . . . Arizona Audit Shows Many Votes’ Legality In Question

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — Like athletes who don’t want to wait until late in the game to start scoring, political operatives aim to establish their narrative rapidly, whether true or false, before the other side starts framing a picture for the public.Even before Donald Trump could start building a conservative agenda in the White House, fierce Democrat foes falsely blasted him as a Russian agent, conspirator, and traitor — who shortly came under official investigation. Trump and his staff probably used up at least as much time fighting against this fusillade as trying to deliver on his proposals.Likewise, even before the long-awaited Arizona Senate’s audit report of the 2020 Maricopa County election was released to the public on September…Continue Reading

A Beacon Of Light… The Lord, The Giver Of Life

October 5, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on A Beacon Of Light… The Lord, The Giver Of Life

By FR. RICHARD BRETON (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.) + + A few weeks ago, we began our current series dedicated to teaching the faith. To assist us in this responsibility, we have been journeying through the first section, or pillar, of the Catechism that deals with understanding the Creed. We gained a better understanding of the importance of believing in Someone, rather than in something. This opened our minds and hearts to a better appreciation of who God is in our lives, especially as Father and…Continue Reading

And It Doesn’t Ever Let Up

October 4, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on And It Doesn’t Ever Let Up

By DEACON MIKE MANNO There is an old saying, “If at first you do not succeed, try, try again.” That now seems to be the mantra for the crazy anti-religious zealots who populate blue state administrative agencies.About a year ago a Federal District Court in New York granted a request for a preliminary injunction against the state commissioner for the Office of Children and Families (OCFS) in favor of a Christian adoption agency, New Hope Family Services.New Hope’s lawsuit was provoked by a rule promulgated by OCFS which prohibited “discrimination and harassment against applicants for adoption services on the basis of race, creed, color, national origin, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, marital status, religion, or disability.” Ultimately,…Continue Reading
