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.

Boston College Honors John Kerry, Enemy of Christ the King

It’s time for graduation ceremonies. You know what that means: Bring out the caps, gowns, cake, bubbly, and a troupe of scandalously dissenting ersatz Catholic speakers and doctores dishonoris causa at nominally Catholic institutions across the land. This year, according to the Cardinal Newman Society, “at least 20 Catholic colleges and universities … are hosting scandalous speakers and honorees at commencement ceremonies.” What follows is a statement from the Catholic … More →

Progressivists love to paint anything they disagree with as some form of “fascism.” Most often, the thing has nothing to do with fascism, but that matters not to the liberal rhetorician. Michael Voris plays of this rhetoric here: ( Grab a pen and write the word down as quickly as you can and start using it everywhere — the word is… homofascism. A working definition you … More →

Defending Faith and Morals is not a Distraction

An editorial in The Anchor has taken the view that protecting the Irish-Catholic identity of a Saint Patrick’s Day parade from homosexual activists is a “distraction” from “our Lenten call.” They also took the occasion to smear Father Leonard Feeney. I posted a comment on the site, which, as of now, has not yet been approved. Here it is: The editorial errs where it says … More →
