The unnatural phenomenon we know as feminism has de-feminised the female. Some former feminists are reckoning with this stark reality. That there are important differences between the sexes — something children understand and are made to “unlearn” in state-sponsored propaganda … Continue reading
We have some pictures from the CAT trip. The most special thing we saw was in Saint Louis was not the Arch, but Calvary Cemetery, where the mortal remains of Father De Smet and Father Damen are interred. Brother Maximilian … Continue reading
