Are atheists closer to heaven than Christians who could not care less? Let me clarify that I believe that the ONLY way to heaven is through Christ. There is no other way. What I mean by the word care in my initial question is the amount of effort one dedicates to the pursuit of spiritual things. Now, obviously atheists (and agnostics) are not known for their pursuit of spiritual things, but I see the energy many of them extend towards... Read more

The archdiocese of Milwaukee leads the way for the rest of American Catholic Churches regarding gender ideology in the United States. The recently released document, Catechesis and Policy on questions Concerning Gender Theory, provides the single most concise Catholic position on gender theory currently available. Furthermore, this document should serve as a framework for the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ response to the gender identity crisis in the Church. Personally, speaking as a youth volunteer at my local parish,... Read more

What is worse: a national shortage on baby formula or limited abortion rights? How you answer this question will determine how you vote in the mid-term 2022 elections. Interestingly, the national media (and the president of the United States) remains largely silent on the shortage. In place of the inability to feed the nation’s infants due to a baby formula shortage, national news coverage focus is on the potential loss of the ability to kill other babies in utero.

Is my Catholic identity invalidated by non-Catholics who cannot accept that which I hold to as ultimate truth and makes up a large part of my interpersonal identity? Should I consider hateful anyone who does not support my lived Catholic experience and denies it even as possible that my beliefs are true? Such questions may seem absurd, but this line of questioning is what those who disagree with transgender ideology deal with on a regular basis when discussing transgenderism in... Read more

Did you know that, according to Church tradition, the apostle Peter (the apostle Roman Catholic hold as their first pope) was crucified upside down? Tradition teaches he felt unworthy to die in the same fashion as his Lord. Sadly, some theologians wish to re-crucify Peter to discredit the papacy. They undermine his importance among the twelve apostles and highlight his failures to demonstrate that he is NOT “the rock” Jesus referenced in Matthew 16:18 (even though Peter literally means rock... Read more

Would Jesus’ comments on gender and sex get Him banned from Twitter for “hate speech?” Would Jesus find Himself in the same situation as the Babylon Bee for affirming the reality of biological sex? And before you excuse Jesus as a byproduct of His time, know that Christians believe Jesus the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8). *All bible verse are taken from the English Standard Version (ESV) Jesus On Sex and Gender Below are verses that show Jesus’... Read more

Why am I Catholic? Today marks the twenty-first anniversary of my admittance into full communion in the Catholic Church. At the Easter Vigil on April 14th, 2001, I ended my long journey to find Christ’s Church, a journey that began on August 28th, 1988. From Absence of Faith To say I had no idea who Jesus was, and what he did for me, would be an understatement. My family was highly dysfunctional. Early in my life I witnessed alcoholism and... Read more

It’s not what you define, but who defines it… Recently, President Biden’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, was asked to define the word “woman” during questions regarding an opinion Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote that included the word “woman.” Below is the account taken from the Washington Post: “I’d love to get your opinion on that, and you can submit that,” Blackburn continued. “Do you interpret Justice Ginsburg’s meaning of ‘men’ and ‘women’ as male and female?” “Again,... Read more
