Are we too conservative for our own good?

by Steve Ray on July 9, 2018

0681100E-80EC-4516-9D97-173E0BB8F8A2Conservatives are conservative by their very nature. But we must get over being so conservative and start being real and vocal Conservatives.

Conservative silence is no longer acceptable. We are in the middle of a cultural war!

If we stand idly by, our grandkids will someday ask, “What did you do Grandpa? Where were you Grandma?”

Catholics are some of the last people on the face of the earth who understand the value of human life from conception to natural death. We are immortal creations made in the image of God for eternity. The world has gone mad.

0011E6BD-9462-4331-B3D4-009D2293D5A7So Catholics and other Christians, are you involved? You have the truth! What are you doing with it?

Some day we will face the murdered, aborted children and they will ask in the presence of God, “What did you do? Why were you silent?”

361F4011-7FF1-44ED-9577-B824F5E631BEWe don’t live in a kingdom or under a dictatorship. We live in a democratic republic. The government works for YOU! We are the bosses! Ours is a unique government of the people, by the people, and for the people (The Bureucrats want you to forget that!)

(Painting: “Freedom of Speech“ by Norman Rockwell 1943).

Get involved since this is your country. As Jesus said, “To him whom much is given, much will be required.” (Luke 12:48).

May 5, 2018

We see some of our best and worst movies while flying in airplanes back-and-forth across the Atlantic. Today we saw one of our dumbest movies which started out intriguing but we both said it’s on the lower end of all the movies we’ve watched. It was called “The Shape of Water“. It was about a […]

How Big Was Jesus in Mary’s Womb at the Visitation – and what could he do?

April 8, 2018

“How big was baby Jesus in Mary’s womb when Mary visited Elizabeth?” That is the question I asked myself while visiting the Church of the Visitation in Israel. What I learned was quite revolutionary and amazing. This is one of the best pro-life arguments from Scripture and one I’ve not heard discussed before. It also […]

Joseph the Sissy or Joseph the Worker – Feast Day of the Worker

March 19, 2018

Today is the Feast day of St. Joseph the Worker! There are some pictures of Joseph I don’t appreciate so much. They present him almost as soft, effeminate like he just came out of a beauty parlor. It appears he never worked in the real world and has not a wrinkle on his clothes or […]

“Encouraging ministers to give holy Communion to divorced-and-civilly-remarried Catholics”?

March 5, 2018

Luke 16:18  “Every one who divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery, and he who marries a woman divorced from her husband commits adultery.” Thus says Our Lord Jesus. Some Church leaders today seem to be contradicting His words and the Laws of the Church. Canon Lawyer Ed Peters comments on new developments: “A […]

The Mid-air Marriage Gets Muddier

January 21, 2018

Written by Dr. Ed Peters, Canon Lawyer Popes on planes aren’t supposed to be a setting from which to draw fodder for canon law essay exams, but as far back as Pope Benedict XVI, such flights have occasioned more than their fair share of papal words or actions carrying canonical implications but undertaken with little […]
