In addition to exposing sexual harassers, our society would do well to purge itself of all sexual evildoers. After all, if we are going to get serious about ending sexual harassment, then we need to end the areas of our culture where women are treated as nothing better than sexual objects. This would include those who produce pornography and run porn sites, as well as those who run strip clubs.[click to continue...]
Here is another novel idea. What is the purpose of dating, again? To discern whom you ought to marry. Therefore, a short dating period before engagement, of say no more than four months would be wise. Whoa, why would I say that? Just think about it.
You are spending time with this other person in a dating relationship so as to discern whether you wish to spend the rest of your life with him or her. If you cannot decide yes within a few months, then you probably best ought to move on. Why perpetuate the period of indecision?[click to continue...]
The barren woman, if you pardon the simile, has become the sacred cow of our culture. [click to continue...]
I attended a Requiem Mass awhile ago for a deceased relative of a family friend. My understanding of our Catholic faith was that we were coming together to pray for the deceased. But apparently the celebrant priest was under a different modus operandi.[click to continue...]
In light of the tragedy at Sutherland Springs Baptist Church last week, many churchgoers felt compelled to pack heat in self-defense. This is an understandable and very human response. After all, self-preservation and the desire to protect one’s family from unjust aggressors lie within our human nature. Everyone is entitled to feel this way.
Well, that is, unless you live in the Diocese of Dallas, Texas.[click to continue...]
Leaving the practice of religion up to each child to decide for themselves when they are a teenager or older punts this moral duty parents have. Yes, it is true each person will need to decide for themselves whether to make the practice of their faith genuine, rather than just a family tradition. Still, how are your children supposed to choose for themselves whether to follow God, if you don’t teach them His commands, so they know what they are deciding between? For, if you don’t see to it that they learn His commands, then who will? Certainly not the public school system or pop culture![click to continue...]
Sadly, some men need a reminder of their need to start making love to their wives.
Technology has ushered in stimulating entertainment that can get a significant percentage of males addicted to viewing the content. Such addictions can rewire the male brain, causing a drop in interest in making level in real life.
But that’s where the contraceptive mentality leads: to entire generations who don’t want to ensure a generation replaces them. That’s where America is heading.[click to continue...]
Yet, a Christian is called to go against the cultural flow. We are required to oppose the world and its ideals. These days the world expects you to be sexually active from your teen years and beyond. Therefore, to be a nonconformist is to actually fulfill God’s will for you by remaining pure.[click to continue...]
The Catholic Church’s condemnation for abortifacient contraception remains pretty well established. Those running US Catholic hospitals would certainly be aware of the Church’s teaching. So, we can expect all such hospitals to comply and to never dispense the drugs, right? Well, not so much. According to Dr. Chris Kahlenborn, a member of the Catholic Medical […][click to continue...]
On the other hand, think through the consequences if the legal system decides to reverse Jahi McMath’s death certificate. For one, it will expose “total brain failure” as a fundamentally flawed diagnosis.[click to continue...]
Effective language and rhetoric used by those supporting the Culture of Life is, of course, a matter of speaking the truth. When pro-lifers speak plainly, we very often prick the conscious of those who support abortion. When someone gets stung at the level of their conscience, naturally they get defensive and spout nonsensical rebuttals. This is to be expected, like the charge that pro-life people use ‘inflammatory’ language.[click to continue...]
