We can no longer support a company that promotes trash that alienates more than half the population. Goodbye Netflix.”

My 15-year-old granddaughter Maria Faustina wrote, “I don’t know whether to laugh, cry, or just scream at the blasphemous stupidity. The devil is sitting on his haunches, rocking back and forth, cackling with glee.”

What Harm Does Gay Marriage Do? Who Cares?

by Steve Ray on December 10, 2019

The latest CatholicVote video might ruffle a few feathers.  So be it. Somebody has to tell the truth. Every day we grow more and more quiet — afraid of the bullying and attacks. That’s got to change.

Priest in Grand Rapids denies gay Michigan judge communion [written by John Beutler]
Screen Shot 2019-12-02 at 7.43.12 AMJudge Sara Smolenski, chief judge of the Kent County District Court, has been denied Communion by Fr. Scott Nolan, pastor of St. Stephen Church in Grand Rapids, MI, because she is married to a woman. She has been a parishioner for many years.
Rod Dreher, a well-known journalist with articles in numerous publications, posted a great analysis of this matter on Nov. 27, 2019. He challenges silent, faithful parishioners who have been afraid to speak to the media in defense of
Screen Shot 2019-12-02 at 7.45.51 AMYou need to find a backbone. Your priest is doing the hard work of defending the Eucharist and defending Church teaching, and is being held up by the local media and gay activists as a pariah. You are wrong to let him stand there and take all this contempt and abuse by himself. Conservative Christians often complain that the clergy won’t take tough stands on issues. Well, here’s a priest doing exactly that, but it appears that he’s standing all by himself. This is a test for him, certainly, but also for the orthodox Catholics of Grand Rapids.

I’m told by a lay Catholic source in Grand Rapids, someone who is close to the situation, that Judge Smolenski was part of a group of gay local Catholics who skyped with Father James Martin about his pro-LGBT book “Building A Bridge” (they talked about it on Facebook). A week or two later, Judge Smolenski and others showed up at mass wearing Pride pins. Father Nolan gave the judge communion, so as not to cause a scene, but phoned her later and told her not to present herself for communion any more. If true, that shows that the priest was willing to tolerate the gay-married judge receiving communion, but not if she was going to turn it into a political stunt.
Now she’s leading a campaign within the parish to demand Father Scott’s ouster for acting according to Catholic teaching.
Back in 2016, when Judge Smolenski and her partner married, the same reporter, Barton Deiters, did a story, featuring her fighting back tears on camera because neither her church nor her partner’s church would allow them to marry within either church. So she’s been public for years in her anger at the Catholic Church over this…. https://www.theamericanconservative.com/dreher/sara-smolenski-politicizing-catholic-communion/
NOTE: Dreher includes at the link above a public letter that Judge Smolenski, and two colleagues, sent in October. A “Red Mass” is a traditional Catholic liturgy designed to celebrate the beginning of a legal term in the fall. Catholic judges typically attend. According to this letter, Smolenski acknowledges the right of a priest to deny communion to “those who are not in conformity with the teaching of the Church.” But now, she’s fighting tears on local TV to protest an exercise of the right she publicly acknowledged Father Nolan has. What changed since October 11?

In an Age of Weenies, it is Good to Read 80+ Quotes about Being a Man!

December 1, 2019

Our age downplays masculinity as though it’s a social disease. In ages past men were proud to be men and knew nothing of a “feminine side” which usually means taking on an air of effeminacy. Gentlemanly, polite, well-mannered, courteous, chivalrous – yes, but effeminate, never! Thanks, but no thanks. My dad was a man and […]

Sodomy Past and Present and Confronting the Clergy

June 30, 2019

There is a lot of homosexuality in the ranks of our clergy, even and especially with prelates in Rome. It is not mentioned, not rebuked.  Unhappily it seems to be ignored and condoned. Very few bishops have mentioned or addressed it. Laicized pervert McCarrick and his collaborators and protectors are good examples. He advanced all […]
