For Catholics: Anti-Zionism is Anti-Semitism


I’ve had multiple conversations on the topic of Israel with some fellow Catholics over the last few weeks. What I have noticed is that these recent conversations have been more open-minded than they have been previously. Two years ago, any vocal support for Israel would have resulted in some fairly nasty backlash from some of […]

America Burning


My brother in the Faith, Common Patriot, writes (emphasis mine): Where normally I fancy myself a patriot that focuses on the positive, the best path forward and the return to values and opportunities this great nation was founded upon, I’ve find myself quiet of late, trying to comprehend exactly what it is that’s transpired during […]

I have not discounted the possibility that the real Rick Santorum has been abducted by aliens and replaced with a robot, because he […]

Bill O’Reilly: ‘Abortion is Settled Law in the USA’


I don’t have cable anymore, so I hear this stuff kind of late sometimes.  Bill O’Reilly said something on Monday night that sounds looney to me because it fails the test of reason. From The Blaze: “Abortion is settled law in the USA, but it should be discouraged, because human DNA is present upon conception,” O’Reilly said. […]

Dear Irish Times – Abortion Does Not Cure E.coli ESBL

Statute of Our Lady of the Mountains, Coomakitsa Pass, County Kerry, Ireland. Summer 2010.

Irish Times is offering an article with the headline “Woman ‘denied a termination’ dies in hospital.” It’s pretty clear that this is an attempt to convince people that direct and intentional abortion is sometimes necessary to save a woman’s life and that the Catholic Church is “unreasonable” to say that direct and willful abortion is […]
