“What about the argument that vast numbers of Catholics ignore the church’s teachings about sexuality? Doesn’t the church have a problem conveying its moral principles to its own flock? ‘Do we ever!’ the archbishop replies with a hearty laugh. ‘I’m not afraid to admit that we have an internal catechetical challenge—a towering one—in convincing our own people of the moral beauty and coherence of what we teach. That’s a biggie.’”[click to continue...]
The CBC’s “Fact Sheet” also lists health risks to females selling their eggs, which include the following:

I hereby dare anyone claiming to be pro-choice to register on this site and to spend at least 30 minutes reading the testimonies of these post-abortive women. I then double-dog-dare you (a ‘90s reference) to then see abortion as a celebratory event. Those reading this who are pro-life, I encourage you to check out the testimonies so you can pray for these women.[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...]
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...]
1. “THOU SHALL HAVE NO GODS BEFORE ME” (Ex 20:3)
Of all the different Ten Commandments, this one was given first because it remains the most important. Yet, abortion violates this command from God.[click to continue...]
Third, this all leads us to the third problem: the indoctrination of children in the modern, public school system. Parents who send their children to the public school system are subjecting their children to some or all of the following:
No prayer in schools
Little tolerance for Christian beliefs
Belittling of the Bible, if it is mentioned at all
Abhorrence for belief in Creationism
Morally bankrupt sex education
An erosion of traditional family values
And the list could go on from there.[click to continue...]
I remember listening to a sermon from the pastor at our former parish years ago on Respect Life Sunday. Within it, he admitted his reluctance to preach on the topic of abortion or other life issues. He explained he was afraid of unsettling anyone who may be post-abortive (those having participated in an abortion in the past).
His mindset is not uncommon. I have heard anecdotally from other pro-life Catholics this is the excuse they hear priests making all too often.[click to continue...]
Christians who support a Biblical world view have a hard time wrapping their minds around this supposed redefinition of marriage.
After all, didn’t God create mankind “male and female”? (Gen 5:2).
Didn’t Christ Himself affirm that human beings were created “male and female”? (Matt 19:4, Mark 10:6).
So how then did our culture get so screwed up that a man and a man or a woman and a woman could be legally ‘married?’[click to continue...]
