How To Respond to Evil People in Power

How To Respond to Evil People in Power

By Paul Brock III • May 4, 2023 •

In an ideal society, anyone who identifies as LGBT would be banned from high positions of power. But this is far from the case in the third millennium. Just about 50 years ago, homosexuals and transsexuals were deemed mentally ill and in need of help. But today, they're a protected class who, according to the modern world, ought to be the leaders of society. As LGBT propagandists continue to gain a footing in the political world, men of goodwill need to stop assenting to the power they claim to have.  Read more

by Fr Paul John Kalchik • May 2, 2023 •

As a young postulant I learned the hard way, how to bind and silence evil spirits. Revisiting this lesson from my youth in light of the "Nefarious" movie.

A pervert on the throne of Peter?

by Gene Thomas Gomulka • April 21, 2023 •

In light of the high percentage of pro-LGBTQ cardinal electors who were appointed by Pope Francis, many people doubt that the next pope will be a pro-family, pro-life, heterosexually oriented orthodox leader who is open to different forms of liturgical expression such as the Traditional Latin Mass. Read more

Conservatism’s New Gay Dogma

Conservatism’s New Gay Dogma

By Paul Brock III • April 20, 2023 •

It should go without saying, but one cannot fight so-called transgenderism while accepting homosexuality. This is an extremist take in the eyes of both liberals and conservatives. Nevertheless, the only effective way to fight gender ideology is to fight homosexualism, for the former stems from the latter. But this is not the "right-wing" strategy, far from it. Read more

Mercy for Heretics and Schismatics?

Mercy for Heretics and Schismatics?

By Rodney Pelletier • April 14, 2023 •

We are obliged to pray for the worst sinners — our own salvation depends on it. During Easter Week, Our Lord has asked Catholics to pray specifically for the conversion of "all mankind, especially all sinners." The novena of Divine Mercy is the approved devotion to do just that. It customarily begins on Good Friday and ends on the Saturday of Easter Week — a day before Divine Mercy Sunday. Read more

‘Who Am I to Judge?’

‘Who Am I to Judge?’

by Gene Thomas Gomulka • April 12, 2023 •

It has been almost 10 years since Pope Francis uttered his famous and most misinterpreted statement of his entire pontificate: "Who am I to judge?"

What the Teen Fentanyl Epidemic Reveals

By Paul Brock III • April 12, 2023 •

Teen overdose deaths have doubled in the past three years, and fentanyl is the main culprit. So the uninspiring "say no to drugs" strategy has proven itself an utter failure. Life's problems, according to the modern world, can be solved with narcotics.
