5 Reasons The Pill Sucks

C'mon maaan, you've already made your big 5 Reasons Contraceptives Suck post! Now everyone knows you're a good Catholic and we can all go on with our lives, right? Wrong. Firstly because it is a general principle that someone must see an advertisement six times before buying the product advertised (OK, admittedly, it has nothing to do with that, don't expect four more posts). Secondly, and more truthfully, I have serious issues with The Pill. With most other contraceptives, individuals can be c … [Read more...]

Y’all Suck At Sinning

It was the common belief 40 years ago, and still for some living today, that the beautiful liberation the modern world now experiences - in its freedom from sexual taboos, freedom of 'choice', redefinition of love and marriage, denial of basic moral principles, etc. - was all very bold, very brave, very rad, man. If the movement could be personified, it would have been a tall, lusty woman who spoke confidently and sweetly, with dark eyes and flowers adorning her naked body. One doesn't have to r … [Read more...]

How To Love a Girl

There are two ways not to love a girl. The first is the most obvious, and hardly needs mention, but for totality's sake, I put before you the Secular Humanist Model. This model, from every angle and direction it's looked at, sucks. You've all heard it before, its maxim - anything goes between two consenting adults - and its one and only commandment - unless otherwise specified, no cheating. This relationship is interesting because it is simultaneously greater and worse than the relationships of … [Read more...]

How To Report On the Catholic Church

Now between the Pope not approving the use of condoms, the Bishops not saying that gay marriage is cool, World Youth Day and everything else, I've been reading a good deal of media coverage on the Catholic Church. Being an intuitive human being, I couldn't help but notice some patterns in this coverage. Thus, in an effort to help the new journalist about to concoct his first article about the Church, I have developed a template for the perfect article to report on any Catholic event. It's … [Read more...]

Indian Music and Catechesis

“Having a clear faith, based on the creed of the church, is often labeled today as a fundamentalism. ... Whereas relativism, which is letting oneself be tossed and 'swept along by every wind of teaching,' looks like the only attitude acceptable to today's standards.” B16I still actually write! Check it out at: VirtuousPla.netAlso, these videos are easy to make, and a lot of fun, but I'm making a legit one, full of interviews from around the world, for the purpose of embracing the entire uni … [Read more...]

WYD, She Cometh!

I have to apologize, because World Youth Day is currently happening, and then some, but the above video is pre-World Youth Day. Don't you fret ye awful Catholics, I have the greatest footage ever filmed by man in store for you.When you see the smiling, beautiful faces of lively, joyful youth in the news, you must realize you're missing a vital element of World Youth Day: The sheer exhaustion that we experience when the day is done. Our days are absolutely packed with adoration, catechesis, Mass, … [Read more...]

Day Freaking Threeish

It's been difficult to think of a meaningful post to post, simply because the events of World Youth Day are still two days away, and we feel as much like tourists as pilgrims. Or perhaps pilgrims doing touristy things. That's it. We visit awesome places - Avila, Sagovia, Toledo, Cordoba, Madrid - we see the sights, taste the food, drink the sangria, make foolish American mistakes, but we are always noticed as pilgrims, as kids-here-to-see-el-Papa; as Catholics. And so we've had some experiences … [Read more...]
