When The Twitter Mob Came After Me

June 6, 2019 Frontpage 12 Comments

By FR. KEVIN M. CUSICK Twitter has a dark, demonic side, raging against God and the Church. That brood of vipers and braying, bloodthirsty hounds lurking in readiness was visited upon me with nearly unrelenting fury and incredible magnitude last week. Wave after wave of calumnious, blasphemous, and obscene memes, gifs, and messages were posted with comments, likes, and retweets ranging up to the tens of thousands. Those who styled themselves my enemies crowed with pleasure that I had been “ratioed” — when negative comments outnumber likes and retweets. Many called for me to delete my account when they weren’t wishing a more horrible fate upon me. Blue check mark accounts with nearly 200k followers piled on. The vituperation descended…Continue Reading

One Man’s Journey From Darkness Into Life

June 6, 2019 Frontpage Comments Off on One Man’s Journey From Darkness Into Life

By REY FLORES Part 2 This week we continue with Kurt Filla’s journey from darkness into life. . . . “Over and over and over it filled my head like a broken record. “I looked up at the clock and it was around 1:10 in the afternoon. My life would never be the same. I don’t remember any more words that were spoken but do recall that the tears kept coming for a long time. Maybe we sat in silence as I piled the table with tissues. Eventually I would make it back to my dorm room, the words of Scripture still in my head and heart. I remember that as I walked back it did not feel as if…Continue Reading

Abortion For Rape? Phoenix Mother Of Pregnant 11-Year-Old Says The Baby Not To Blame

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — After Ohio’s “heartbeat” bill was signed into law in April, some news outlets carried stories that it would forbid abortions for pregnant rape victims. For instance, The Hill.com headlined on May 14, “Pregnant 11-year-old rape victim in Ohio would be unable to receive abortion under new law.” The New York Daily News on May 14 quoted Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine, a pro-life Republican, as saying at the signing ceremony: “The essential function of the government is to protect the most vulnerable among us, those who don’t have a voice. Government’s role should be to protect life from the beginning to the end.” Pushing pro-abortionists’ emphasis, the Daily News’ headline was, “Ohio ‘heartbeat’ abortion law would…Continue Reading

Is The Liberal Hour Ending In The West?

June 4, 2019 Frontpage Comments Off on Is The Liberal Hour Ending In The West?

By PATRICK J. BUCHANAN Hillary Clinton called them “the deplorables.” Barack Obama called them losers who “cling” to their Bibles, bigotries and guns. To President Jean-Claude Juncker of the European Commission, they are “these populist, nationalists, stupid nationalists…in love with their own countries.” Well, “stupid” they may be, and, yes, they do love their countries, but last week they gave Juncker a thrashing, as they shook up the West and the world. Elections in the world’s largest electoral blocs — the 28-nation EU, and an India of 1.3 billion people — showed that the tide of nationalism continues to rise and spread across Europe and Asia. In India, the Hindu Nationalist BJP party of Prime Minister Narendra Modi won a…Continue Reading

The Fabric Of Truth And Conscience Rights

June 3, 2019 Frontpage Comments Off on The Fabric Of Truth And Conscience Rights

By DEACON MIKE MANNO, JD I think all of us have some constants in our life — beliefs or facts that we rely on to help light our way. But it’s not just in our personal lives that we find such truths: businessmen, professionals, and tradesmen also hold certain propositions to be so firmly based in reality that they are directed by them without giving them a second thought. In law, for example, there are certain propositions: such as the burden of proof is on the moving party, or motorists have the right to presume that other drivers will obey the rules of the road. Architects, physicians, and accountants all have the same type of universal principles that, the assumption…Continue Reading

Civil War 2019 . . . Day And Night Fight It Out: Both Can’t Win

By DEXTER DUGGAN The UK Guardian posted a news story that there was “outcry and a debate” in Virginia because a woman’s will specified that her healthy pet dog be killed, cremated, and the ashes buried with her. This was an “unusual death,” the May 23 report said — unusual enough for a news story. Animal-shelter workers reportedly had “spent two weeks trying to talk the executor of the woman’s estate out of the plan” because a new home easily could have been found for the healthy dog, named Emma, which was a human being-type name. The story added, “Larry Spiaggi, the president of the Virginia Funeral Directors Association, said he found the practice of euthanizing a healthy dog and…Continue Reading

What Really Bugs The Democrats

June 1, 2019 Frontpage Comments Off on What Really Bugs The Democrats

By CHRISTOPHER MANION On an early Italian morning in 1975, I had the entire Etruscan Museum in Viterbo to myself. Filled with luscious gold and jewels, it was quiet as a tomb (in fact, a tomb was a major exhibit), until I approached a small office near the entrance. There I thought I heard a familiar voice. I couldn’t believe my ears. It was Bugs Bunny. Yes, the security guard was on duty, and he was watching a Bugs Bunny cartoon on a small television set on his desk. He was chuckling, and so was I — the cartoon’s sound track was English, the subtitles were French, and the guard protecting all of these treasures was very, very Italian. Only…Continue Reading

Credibility Again . . . Missing in Action At The Vatican

By JOSEPH MATT It is said that time reveals all truth, the passing of which has brought another vindication of Archbishop Viganò (see Maike Hickson’s article, “Former Aide Details how McCarrick Ignored Benedict’s Sanctions,”). The evidence which has come forth since Archbishop Viganò issued his original allegations against the Vatican bureaucracy and clerical cover-up in the McCarrick case continues to verify and vindicate his statements. The “ever merciful” Vatican and its “transparency” happy talk are once again faced with a case of having to shoot the messenger or face the reality of dealing with the cover-up. The latest revelations put forth by the former aide to the now Mr. McCarrick provide more evidence and confirmation of a massive abuse of…Continue Reading

The Future: Bleak Or Bright?

May 30, 2019 Frontpage Comments Off on The Future: Bleak Or Bright?

By JOHN YOUNG Looking at conditions in society today, and in the Catholic Church, it is easy to become pessimistic. Are we heading for a long dark age with civilization giving way to barbarism? Or is the end of the world near, to be preceded by the final great battle between good and evil? In the area of sexuality views are being pushed which a generation ago would have been seen as insane. Common sense, backed up by biological science, accepts the obvious truth that there are two complementary sexes. But not only is common sense flouted, people who disagree with the insane and unscientific assertions being pushed are in danger of losing their jobs or even going to prison.…Continue Reading

Pro-Abortion Thinking… Just As Mangled As The Bodies Of Its Infant Victims

May 29, 2019 Frontpage Comments Off on Pro-Abortion Thinking… Just As Mangled As The Bodies Of Its Infant Victims

By DEXTER DUGGAN Amid the controversy over whether the growing organisms in mothers’ wombs should be allowed to live long enough to become human beings by anybody’s reckoning, even permissive abortion’s strongest supporters might wonder how much longer they can live with their own crying consciences. Their ever-increasing unease and extremism demonstrate consciences in turmoil, no matter how much they’ll try to shrug off the growing presence inside themselves of moral discomfort, gnawing pain over what they intuit is deeply wrong. These worried partisans seek a desperate numbing by becoming ever more radical on how late and how much abortion is acceptable to them, even while scientific development and knowledge have kept shoving them to ever more uncomfortable corners to…Continue Reading
