+ Orthodox Catholic References to “Mother Earth” and Similar Biblical Motifs Many thanks to Francisco Figueroa, who discovered this in a homily dated 5-11-88 (in Spanish), delivered in Bolivia, in the Valley of Cochabamba. This was Francisco’s translation of the Spanish. My friend, Dr. Robert Fastiggi, a systematic theologian, sent me a personal letter, stating, “I checked the Spanish original, and the passage from JPII is accurate.” Pope St. John Paul II’s words follow below. ***** “Blessed is he who,… Read more

+ 16-year-old public figures, parental responsibilities, liberal sanctimoniousness, Asperger’s Syndrome, and Babylon Bee satire [see a video of Thunberg at the UN Climate Action Summit] This was a spontaneous discussion on my Facebook page, after I posted a Babylon Bee satire, featuring Thunberg. The words of Kristina Johnson will be in blue, those of Julie Ann Monzi in green, and Danielle Brown’s in purple. ***** I see a connection to Temple Grandin. Good documentary to watch sometime. Very eye-opening to how someone on the Autism spectrum’s… Read more

And did Jesus minister exclusively to Jews and not Gentiles at all (an alleged Gospel inconsistency)? Dr. David Madison is an atheist who was a Methodist minister for nine years: with a Ph.D. in Biblical Studies from Boston University.  You can see (by the number in the title) how many times I have replied to his videos or articles. Thus far, I haven’t heard one peep back from him  (from 8-1-19 to this date). This certainly doesn’t suggest to me that he is very confident in his opinions…. Read more

Taylor Marshall’s Orchestrated Campaign to Flood the Amazon Page for His Book Infiltration with Positive Reviews Within nine days (by 6-1-19), Marshall garnered 840 reviews of his book, Infiltration on the book’s Amazon page (89% of them 5-star reviews from his rapturous fan club of wide-eyed “sheep”). By the next day it was 917. The total is now (on 12-11-19) 1,405 reviews. Taylor played the game of amassing an army of his “choir” to pump up the book for the masses… Read more

This is an “outtake” from my book, The One-Minute Apologist. I have expanded it, adding commentary on Jude 7. ***** MARRIAGE AND FAMILY * The Catholic Church is wrong to condemn homosexuality, because it is natural * No Church has any right to tell people what to do with their own bodies * Initial reply  * The Bible clearly condemns homosexual acts as intrinsically, gravely sinful. Desperate attempts to explain away this prohibition are futile; the Bible is too clear…. Read more

Romans 1:26-27 (RSV) For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural, [27] and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error.  St. Paul mentions “dishonorable passions.” The next word “for” shows that what follows is an example of what Paul calls “dishonorable.” The example is: “Their women exchanged natural… Read more

Compilation of 183 articles of mine for the National Catholic Register (29 September 2016 to 10 December 2019) I consider this collection to be a virtual book, even though I don’t intend to make an actual published book out of it. But in terms of presenting the wide scope and broad range of Catholic and general apologetics arguments that can be brought to bear, it has strong similarities to, and the main components of books like my One-Minute Apologist (2007; which… Read more
