Social Issues & Action

I’m sure you’ve seen those yard signs that proudly declare “In this house WE BELIEVE that Black lives matter, women’s rights are human rights, etc etc”

Al Kresta just produced a video responding to the silliness. It has never been done better. Please share widely.

He is building his own platform and services. He does not track or make money off data from his customers. It is a free service with free speech. No illegal or immoral activity like porn. Just Free Speech.

He has been cut off from PayPal, Visa, banks and all the other Marxists who oppose free speech and Christianity.

Here is an interview with the founder Andrew Torba. This interview “sealed the deal” for me.

My Resolve as our World Spins out of Control

by Steve Ray on January 23, 2021

After commenting a bit on our dismal situation in the world, a friend wrote to me this morning saying, “Please keep doing what have been doing for many years to come!”

Screen Shot 2021-01-23 at 9.21.52 AMI responded,

When we got married 44 years ago I told my good wife we had already lost our country, it was just a matter of time how fast we would slide down the hill. I had been a keen observer of philosophy, popular culture, the media and movies, education and the “intellectual” trends.

The trend was already set and I watched the “non-thinkables” quickly become “thinkable” and then accepted, then imposed, then expected, and then we were all required to praise and celebrate the things that even in my younger years were once “unthinkable”.

Abortion was just one of many evils that sprouted like an ugly weed due to this philosophical shift.

external-content.duckduckgoPut a frog in a pan of cold water and turn on the burner. Because the heat increases slowly over time, the frog does not realize the change. He does not respond but slowly is boiled to death. So it is with our country. The changes are just gradual enough that people adapt to the increasing change and in the end….

Every time we smile with a small victory it is like climbing up a sand dune when I was a boy. It seemed like for every step I climbed up I slid back down two steps. 

downloadEven when Trump was elected I viewed it as a small victory, but said to Janet, “It is only a parenthesis — it will only slow down the decline for a while, it won’t stop it.”

It’s not about who’s in or not an office, it’s about the shifting trend of the philosophy and our willingness to except evil and socialism and the denigration of human life and freedom.

Without a spectacular intervention of God (which I pray for) we have already lost our country and the freedoms we have taken for granted. I hope I am proved to be wrong, but…

As for our family, we will fight the good fight and stand our ground. We will educate, castigate, and celebrate. We will live in the life of the Lord and his victory through the cross and resurrection. The truth is the Truth and cannot be forgotten, neglected or silenced.

So, we all do what we must even though I expect it is a losing battle on this battlefield. But knowing that in the end we win the war, Janet and I intend to stay faithful with our eyes set on the last day when “all who are in the tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who have done good to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil to the resurrection of judgment. (Jn 5:28-29).What Grandmas do

C812935F-C875-4206-972B-203FF96112E5-768x576And if we can save the lives of some babies, form the conscience of our own family and a few others, keep the flame burning, bring some souls to heaven with us, die in friendship with God, and even die as martyrs with the Creed on our lips, we will have done our part.

Alas, we are called to be faithful, not successful, as Mother Teresa said.

by Dave Durand September 1, 2020  Published in Legatus Magazine “What does it mean when a CEO says, “we support Black Lives Matter?” On the surface, it appears the company affirms the dignity and equality of Black people.

Who Are the Poor I’m Supposed to Care For?

September 6, 2020

As we leave our rented apartment in Rome and walk towards St. Peter’s Square I notice a ragged, filthy woman sitting on a piece of cardboard with a baby laying lethargically in her arms. She looks up with mournful eyes and pathetically mumbles something as she reaches out hoping I’ll put coins in her hand. […]

The Catholic Church: the First Abolitionist, Church Never Endorsed Slavery

July 28, 2020

Crisis Magazine has come out with a good and insightful article debunking the idea that the Catholic Church endorsed and promoted slavery. The modern anti-Christian, anti-history narrative takes it for granted that the Church was either a promoter of slavery, or at best complicit or it turned a blind eye. This article by Paul Kengor […]

Isn’t this homily a breath of fresh air?

June 24, 2020

Fearless, politically-incorrect and calling out those who need to be called out including the USCCB, the coronavirus hysteria, the Cardinal of Washington DC, and more. He actually discusses politics – how dare he? He also challenges the media, LGBTQ, the attack against masculinity, the genuine role of men and fathers and reactions to sin in the world. I wonder […]

Watching the Rioting?

June 1, 2020

Watching the rioting and looting? This is what happens when you take God out of society and the fathers out to families. Yes, there are some injustices in our country, but this mayhem is the result of a lack of God and strong fathers.

My grandkids (son and brother too) jumped in and went on a roll. Proud of these smart and savvy homeschoolers — enjoy! I started out with this […]
