Seeings How Jail Time May Be in Our Future…

Call me Mr. Practical, but do you have a free hour and forty-five minutes? If so, I found a few instruction videos you may want to have a look at.

Remember the Fifth Amendment? How about the Code of Conduct, where under the Geneva Convention you’re required to only give your name, rank, and serial number? Yes, think along those lines as we prepare for what just may be a Catholic Spring, even if only one of passive resistance. Remember Our Lord’s experience in Matthew Chapter 27?

Now Jesus stood before the governor, and he questioned him, “Are you the king of the Jews?” Jesus said, “You say so.” And when he was accused by the chief priests and elders, he made no answer. Then Pilate said to him, “Do you not hear how many things they are testifying against you? But he did not answer him one word, so that the governor was greatly amazed.

White House to Announce ‘Accommodation’ for Religious Organizations on Contraception Rule

With the White House under fire for its new rule requiring employers including religious organizations to offer health insurance that fully covers birth control coverage, ABC News has learned that later today the White House — possibly President Obama himself — will likely announce an attempt to accommodate these religious groups.

The Blog “Whosoever Desires” asks the Question, “Why War?”

The answer is quite simple, really. Wars happen because the ones who start them think they can win. Anthony Lusvardi, SJ, gets into more detail here. Read it, share it, and prepare.

Then, share the little petition that can. As of 09:00 this morning, 26,522 folks have said “enough.” Add your voice to theirs.

The President Remarks About Our Petition…Bravo Zulu

“I can’t believe Frank Weathers brought that petition into my den, and then shot it clear through the ceiling, and it’s headed to the Moon. That is awesome.”

No. God is awesome, and so are all the folks who took the time and effort to sign the little petition that could. You’ve heard me say it once, and I’ve said it a million times. Bravo Zulu, to all of you. BZ, BZ, BZ. [Read more...]

Senator Marco Rubio Writes a Bill: The Religious Freedom Restoration Act

How weird has it gotten when a right that is codified in the law of the land, and firmly seared onto the nation’s psyche, has to be backed up by another bill? Well that is what we have come to.  The Huffington Post, and a whole host of other news agencies, has the scoop.

WASHINGTON — Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) introduced a bill on Monday that would override the Obama administration’s new rule on birth control coverage and allow religious hospitals, universities, and other organizations that morally oppose contraception to refuse to cover it for their employees.

To Become Technically and Tactically Proficient

One of the characteristics of the Catholic Church that appealed to me right away was that not only does the Church teach the importance of strategy, but she also recognizes the importance of tactics. And like the Marine Corps, the Church Militant produces field manuals teaching and relating the effective use of both strategy and tactics. All of which are based on her actual experience gained in fighting, and winning,  spiritual wars. [Read more...]

Sign the Petition for the “Life At Conception Act” UPDATED

“Crazy” must run in the Paul family or something. Or is that “keraaayyyzy?” Either way, it’s probably a good thing. You know, back on Saturday, the Gospel Reading was one of the shortest you’ll ever hear being read at mass. It was from Mark’s Gospel. Did you see it? [Read more...]

Because of the Twilight Zone Episode that My Country Has Become UPDATED

How’s that for an answer to “Why I Am Catholic,” dear reader? Here, I’ll say it again: because of the Twilight Zone episode my country has become. Because when lifesaving care can be denied to your child because of mental handicaps, or physical disabilities, you know, for the good of the herd (or is it for the good of Mammon?), that’s when you realize how our disrespect for human dignity has turned our world over to monsters.

Cheap Speed for the Land-Locked Masses!

I think I can make one of these.

Heh! Take this you weird, expensive dolphin jet-pack loving, one-percenters!

Because Christ and His Church Are the Light of the World

No longer does the Church exercise temporal powers over domains. The Papal States are back in the hands of secular powers. The saintly soldiers of the military orders have all laid down their arms. Rendering to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s, then, what is the role of the Church in the world today? [Read more...]
