UPDATE: Bishop Strickland of Tyler Texas denounces Netflix as blasphemous over gay Jesus movie.

My Message to Netflix by Twitter, Facebook and US Mail: “Our whole family has decided to cancel Netflix. Your “gay Jesus” Christmas special was just too much. This is blasphemous!

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.”

If you want to join us in refusing to finance and support such trash, and to make a statement, here is how to cancel Netflix in under 5 minutes https://www.finder.com/how-to-cancel-netflix When you cancel make sure you tell them WHY!

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.

Screen Shot 2019-11-29 at 11.06.19 AMOur 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 taught me to be a man too by instruction and example. Thanks Dad! I taught my son to be a man and I am sure proud of him and all my manly grandsons. My daughters are real women too, following their mom’s teaching and example, and they all found real men to marry.

Screen Shot 2019-11-29 at 11.40.27 AMI just heard of a Catholic school nearby that has forbidden the throwing of snowballs during recess. What? My grandkids are homeschooled and in a homeschooling coop and they relish a good time outdoors to do what boys do and to throw and dodge a furious barrage of snowballs, all in good fun – growing up to be muscular men with a sense of fun, teamwork and competition.

In a culture full of gender confusion and social engineering crap, I enjoyed this list of 80+ quotes by men about being men. It’s a celebration of the way God made us and a rebellion against the way the world wants to re-make us. Enjoy! https://www.artofmanliness.com/articles/quotes-about-manliness/

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

October 13, 2019

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. […]

New Olympic’s Controversy: Should an XY person compete against XX persons?

June 24, 2019

Controversies have always swirled around the Olympics: race, politics and performance-enhancing drugs. The new controversy will be interesting to watch.

Covington Catholic incident a black eye for pro-life leadership

January 22, 2019

January 21, 2019 (CatholicCulture.org) – by Phil Lawler.  It’s time for the pro-life movement to grow up. The disgraceful treatment of students from Covington Catholic – and by that I mean the pell-mell rush of pro-life “leaders” to condemn innocent young men – illustrates a potentially fatal flaw in the movement. For much too long, […]

About Witholding Funds from the Church

August 16, 2018

There has been a lot of discussion about withholding funds from the Church as a way of speaking out against bishops who have not done their job and been bad shepherds, protecting bad shepherds. I have suggested it is something we should think about especially if we know of abusers or those who facilitate abusers. […]
