Politics and Society
Christendom no longer exists, but, nevertheless, Catholics must be active members of their respective societies and agents of justice in a world bereft of moral values. We must know history, not merely current events. European history, after the conversion of the nations, was the history of the Church. This history is certainly important to know. But, as Americans, we cannot afford to be ignorant of our own history. The virtue of patriotism, which is actually a natural manifestation of the supernatural gift of piety, demands that we have an appreciation for whatever is good in the history of this land of ours, not just after 1776, but since events were recorded here. The virtue of patriotism also obligates us to recognize the sins of our nation. “My country right or wrong,” is an evil axiom that changes patriotism into self-adulating nationalism.
As Catholics, we ought to be justly concerned about world events, especially about the persecution of the Church that is going on in other countries. Advantage ought to be taken of the many good Catholic outlets of information that are available today. Our website is a good source of the news that counts. From our religious perspective, we are able to bypass the useless information and disinformation that fills the major media, and provide the news that affects our lives as members of the Church militant. If it doesn’t help anyone sub specie aeternitatis (under the aspect of eternity) we don’t post it.
Perhaps you have noticed how some persons (not you and I, of course) project their besetting sins and failings onto others. A man who seduces other men’s wives will keep his own wife under veritable lock and key. A snoop is sure others are snooping on him. The larcenous man fears theft. Christians who make little or no effort to live up to the moral … More →
Amid the gruesome revelations of the ghoulish practices by Planned Parenthood—the country’s worst perpetrator of abortions—came the news that the local political arm of this organized crime network, the Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund of Massachusetts, keeps a list of “Champions” and “Allies” who serve the interests of the abortion industry in the Massachusetts General Court. In the first part of our analysis, released on July … More →
This is really a wonderful turnout. It looks like we have more than 250 people here today. God bless all of you, and you are certainly to commended for showing up on this Saturday in August. Well, the mask has been torn away with these videos. The veneer has been shattered, irretrievably. The seemingly impenetrable, carefully constructed facade of public respectability of Planned Parenthood has cracked and … More →

Senator Ayotte, I read your most recent newsletter and saw not a word about the recent monstrous findings regarding Planned Parenthood killing babies with the intention of selling undamaged body parts to “research’ companies. Does this not appall and disgust you? Aren’t you pro-life? Even some pro-choice people are horrified at this practice. I ask you to take steps to defund this grotesque money machine which … More →

A month ago the SBC website posted an article by me in which I wrote: “Money is not evil. We all need it. What is evil is putting it at the center of the life of the society and men making the acquisition of it a main purpose of their life, as if our lives haven’t higher purpose.” My language was mild. That of Our … More →
This is an anatomy of a PR coverup. See how the demonic liars at Planned Parenthood cranked up a campaign, utilizing a bogus poll and their willing media accomplices, to hush the story of their illegal sale of baby body parts. Besides describing him as a “murderer,” Jesus calls Satan also a “liar.” Planned Parenthood’s minions, who actively pursue the work of Satan (whether consciously … More →

Buchanan does a fine job. Excerpts: “If God does not exist, then everything is permissible.” Ivan Karamazov’s insight came to mind while watching the video of Deborah Nucatola of Planned Parenthood describe, as she sipped wine and tasted a salad, how she harvests the organs of aborted babies for sale to select customers. “Yesterday was the first time … people wanted lungs,” said Nucatola, “Some people … More →
