There are certain things I have constantly asserted with regard to radical Catholic reactionaries, in the 20+ years I have closely studied them and refuted their errors (including two books written about them, in 2002 and 2012). One of these is that their mentality or spirit of arbitrary “picking-and-choosing” what they will accept or reject of the Church’s teaching and authority is exactly like that of 1) theologically liberal / dissident / modernist Catholics (real or so-called) and 2) Protestants… Read more

[note: the title of this paper is a generalization; not meant to imply that there are no exceptions, but rather, to express a strong correlation]   As I’ve been saying for many years now, the endless lies about Pope Francis are almost always accompanied by “anti-Vatican II, anti-Ordinary Form Mass, and anti-ecumenism”: the four hallmarks of radical Catholic reactionaries.   I wrote eight months ago: “as always in these matters, ‘it ain’t just about Pope Francis.’ These people have had… Read more

On 5 May 2016, I wrote my prediction paper: 15 Reasons Why Trump Wins in November.  On 9 November 2016 I followed up with My Successful May Predictions About the 2016 Election, in which I described how I was correct in 13 out of my 15 predictions (or 87%). I also detailed on Facebook right after the election how I got 46 of 50 states right in the electoral college, and was just seven electoral votes off of the final result. This was… Read more

. . . and his particular animus against the Austrian Jesuit and biographer of Luther: Hartmann Grisar  James Swan is an anti-Catholic Reformed Protestant polemicist, with whom I’ve been debating for 17 years. One of his constant themes in his research (mostly regarding Martin Luther) is his loud and repeated insistence on recourse to primary historical source materials. He is unsparing and merciless in criticizing Catholic apologists in this respect. He has made this clear a billion times on his… Read more

And Has Present-Day Protestantism Maintained the Classical “Reformation” Protestant Mariology? In my 1994 article, Martin Luther Was Extraordinarily Devoted to Mary, I observed: Luther indeed was quite devoted to Our Lady, and retained most of the traditional Marian doctrines which were held then and now by the Catholic Church. This is often not well-documented in Protestant biographies of Luther and histories of the 16th century, yet it is undeniably true. It seems to be a natural human tendency for latter-day followers… Read more

Broken homes as the primary factor; with my friend, atheist Marxist Jon Curry (words in blue) [I linked an article about 64 shootings and 13 deaths in Chicago over another weekend] Same old failed liberal / Democrat social & political policies; same old tragic results . . . How about trying conservative politics and Christian social and moral positions for a change? Not much to lose on the south side of Chicago . . . What exactly are you proposing to… Read more

Many traditionalists (and the more radical reactionary Catholics) seem to think that Abp. Viganò is just a good old-fashioned orthodox Catholic who is making some desperately needed (and of course well-intentioned) criticisms of Pope Francis. I think my post of yesterday, Abp. Viganò: Fanaticism, Extremism, and Conspiratorialism (Summary from August 2019 Until July 2020: Alarming, Increasingly Quasi-Schismatic Spirit), demonstrates that the situation is far, far beyond that. Yet no doubt there are many traditionalists and reactionaries who don’t see at all that Abp…. Read more

[see book and purchase information] The Protestant (especially evangelicals and charismatics: and I am from both camps in my background) tends to look at Scripture and say, “what does this teach me?” As far as that goes, there is nothing wrong with it, except when all these individuals start looking at the same Scripture, that they all revere as the inspired, infallible Word of God, yet nevertheless disagree on the interpretation. Then we have a problem, because contradiction means someone… Read more

Summary from August 2019 Until July 2020 (Alarming, Increasingly Quasi-Schismatic Spirit) For background, see my previous related articles and those of my friend, 100% orthodox Catholic theologian Dr. Robert Fastiggi: Bishops Viganò & Schneider Reject Authority of Vatican II [11-22-19] Viganò, Schneider, Pachamama, & VCII (vs. Janet E. Smith) [11-25-19] Abp. Viganò Descends into Fanatical Reactionary Nuthood (. . .

Now we are hearing complaints that Pope Francis didn’t or doesn’t wear the papal mozzetta, which is “a short elbow-length sartorial vestment, a cape that covers the shoulders and is buttoned over the frontal breast area” (Wikipedia). The custom had already been changed by Pope John Paul the Great, as the same article notes: The winter mozzetta and the Paschal mozzetta fell into disuse during the pontificate of John Paul II (1978–2005), but their use was briefly restored by Pope Benedict XVI (2005–2013) before being discontinued… Read more
