the power of a homily…

... There are few things more detrimental to the spiritual well being of a congregation than the stand-up homily. The stand-up homily, in case you don't know, is a homily where a priest tries to get all relate-y to his congregation using jokes and pop culture references. Nothing is said that could be construed as confrontational or judgmental. It serves no purpose other than to entertain. It is really a dreadful spectacle to endure. I have no patience for the stand-up homily. It is a complacent … [Read more...]

“For the good of souls, Nancy Pelosi must be denied Holy Communion and the Catholic people should be informed that she is being denied Holy Communion.”

... I am quoting Fr. Z in the above title, but I must say that if this very moment Archbishop Niederauer and Cardinal Wuerl decided to excommunicate Nancy Pelosi or deny her Communion I would stand up and loudly cheer with joy. Hell, I may even dance in place.And you can call me nasty or un-Christian for doing so all you want - but you'd be dead wrong.Warning: I am about to say "hell" a lot.First lets examine what it means when someone is excommunicated and denied Holy Communion. … [Read more...]

... Breaking News: Koman reverses decision on Planned Parenthood grantsA short lived victory with an utterly disappointing and predictable end.Why, SGK Foundation, why?

Alas, no more.Updated 4:55pm[EST]: But wait, there's more ... let's take a nice deep breath. Is SGK really caving?However, my thinking falls along the … [Read more...]

Last night the website for the Susan G Komen Foundation was hacked by leftist Planned Parenthood supporters.PS- I predicted PP was going to use this "blow" to their financial advantage and begin raking in the pity contributions. Well, I was right. Mayor Bloomberg is quoted as saying "Politics have no place in health care". I am sure the irony is utterly lost on him.All together every one ... abortion is not health care.I'm also sure Cecile Richards is all but piddling herself … [Read more...]

Why the hell should liberals care that Susan G Komen cut off funding to Planned Parenthood…

Let me properly express my concern.

... I find the endless reactionary shrieks from liberals condemning Susan G Komen's decision strangely ironic. Why the hell should they care whether Planned Parenthood loses funding from the Komen Foundation?The two organizations made strange bedfellows.Plainly, Planned Parenthood does not offer mammograms at their clinics. They only offer referrals. Induced abortions and artificial birth control increases a women's estrogen levels which in turn increase the risk of breast cancer. … [Read more...]

Why the hell should we care so much about the HHS mandate…

Asking me who's paying for these "free" pills. Go ahead, ask me.

... Do you ever feel like Catholics are the ones fighting the majority of the battles lately? Maybe it's because we like to fight about everything, being members of the Church Militant and all. Or maybe it just seems that way because blogging affords me the luxury of surrounding myself with passionate Catholics of the more orthodox ilk. Oh, I know... it's probably because politicians have no qualms picking fights and hurling insults at Catholics. Yeah, it's probably that last one.So there … [Read more...]

can it be argued that pro-abortion advocates are racist and sexist…

... I once heard it argued that the only people opposed to abortion where fanatical white evangelicals. The common misconception is that typical pro-lifers are white, middle class, right-wing fundies completely out of touch with real urban problems like poverty, crime, and family abandonment. Of course you and I know this is simply not true.The media does their part to intentionally perpetuate this misguided notion that it's nothing more than a white man's fight to take away the rights of … [Read more...]

pro-life girls are prettier…

The type of young ladies you'd be proud to bring home to meet momma.

... Here is a snippet from today's column. Follow the link to read the rest of my thoughts on how much more attractive pro-life girls are."Let me clear, I'm not talking about the beauty of youth. The beauty I am referring to transcends age... The passion that drove them [pro-life supporters] to stand out in freezing rain for hours on end transformed their faces into an angelic beauty. These were the faces of people who knew they were supporting a just and noble cause. The March for Life was … [Read more...]

remember those 399,000 ninjas that marched under a giant invisibility cloak…

... Well, it looks like CBS Washington found a pair of Spectraspecs. It didn't take a pair of very observant eyes to notice that when CBS Washington originally reported about the March For Life they failed to capture a photo of a single solitary pro-life advocate. It was astonishing really. I guess, after receiving reader feedback, the editor was prompted to take another look at that film, and oops... there they are.They have now revised their coverage to include some photos of the … [Read more...]
