From a non-Catholic Christian perspective, anything to do with giving honor or veneration to the Virgin Mary or saints can be quite intimidating. The first thing that usually comes to mind is the first of the Ten Commandments, “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before. You shall not make for yourself a graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that... Read more

***SATIRE*** On a livestream episode of The Vortex, viewers were greeted with an unprecedented surprise. The signature bass-driven intro jingle suddenly had a slightly different, yet familiar, sound. Most of the crew at Church Militant thought nothing of it in the moment. But as it turns out, the techs in the sound engineering accidentally played the wrong music track — which turned out to be the intro theme music from the popular 90’s comedy television series Seinfeld. Michael Voris, host... Read more

***SATIRE*** It’s not everyday a modern pope makes such a bold statement on something as simple as a drink. But it appears Benedict XVI has felt the spiritual calling to set the record straight. The Pope Emeritus has come out of retirement and assumed the papal chair while reading a letter of exhortation titled, “Capulus est Vita,” which translates in English, “COFFEE IS LIFE.” A Vatican spokesperson states, “Papal infallibility is like that really amazing tool you’ve bought from the... Read more

I’ve been a longtime admirer of Pope John Paul II even during my Evangelical years. The recently released report on former Cardinal Thomas McCarrick may shake other admirers as it has revealed that he (among others) was complicit in enabling Cardinal McCarrick (an accused sexual deviant and abuser) to rise up in the Church hierarchy. Some believe JPII’s experiences with communist smear campaigns against the Church in Poland that involved false accusations of clerical sexual abuse have influenced him to believe... Read more

***SATIRE*** Well, the 2020 U.S. Election has taken an unexpected turn for many Republican supporters, but some have not thrown in the towel yet. In light of Trump taking legal action over the possibility of fraudulent votes given to Democrat Joe Biden, many Republican supporters are adamant that the election is far from over. “This election was stolen!” shouts an outspoken Brude O. Viepürz, who happens to identify as a die-hard Republican-voting Protestant. “It was foretold that the man of... Read more

***SATIRE*** Archbishop Vigano is no stranger to controversy. He is most widely known for calling out Pope Francis for negligible church leadership. Little did everyone know that Vigano is also an avid rock musician walking around in clerical garments. Turns out the veteran Catholic cleric has been former Genesis drummer and vocalist Phil Collins this whole time. Now everyone can see his true colors shining through. After enjoying the success of being one of the biggest pop-rock artists throughout the... Read more

When I attended an Evangelical summer youth camp when I was 17, we had a theme called ‘couch potatoes.’ For those of us who spend copious amounts of time watching television, playing video games or scrolling through social media, it’s easy to allow ourselves to sit on the couch while not considering the content we absorb from the screen. Whether it’s watching or reading a news story, a kid’s show or even the latest season of our favorite reality-TV show,... Read more

In elementary school, I used to spend countless hours in the library reading books about space, the planets in our solar system and other celestial bodies. My favorites were selected books from Isaac Asimov’s Library of the Universe. I absorbed as much information on quasars, pulsars, black holes, white dwarfs and red giants as my adolescent mind could contain. Even as part of a mini science experiment assignment, I mapped out the changing positions of the stars in the sky... Read more

It has recently come to my attention that such terms like “Western Culture” or “Western Civilization” are seemingly rooted in white supremacist ideology, according to some activists I have engaged in conversation with. This catches me off guard, since I think I do my best to adhere to Christian principles which logically considers racism as sin. After all, the Bible states that there is neither Jew nor Gentile, slave nor free, male nor female, for we are all one in... Read more

    In the wake of the trending outrage over Netflix’s content, my family and I have decided to cancel our subscription. Some of my readers might be a little put off by what appears to be a patronizing blog post. The point of this article is not to guilt everyone into hopping a bandwagon, but to talk about the reasoning behind our decision to cancel Netflix and encourage those who may be considering a similar decision. 1 – We... Read more
