™Mandeville, LA – Today’s Pile of Prep: most of the stories and research used to put together the Mike Church Show on the Veritas Radio Network’s CRUSADE Channel. 2017 is here and WELCOME to the All-New, Mike Church Show on the CRUSADE Channel, listen LIVE for Free (don’t cost nuthin’).
Sapientia et Veritas -But what if school, by its very nature, ought to be such a place? I do not seek nourishment from a stone, and yet I do not recoil in loathing from that stone; stones are not for eating. But what if the bread I have been given is not bread, but stone? That would be bad enough. We can make it worse. What if the egg I have been given is not an egg but a scorpion? At least the stone cannot sting or kill. The scorpion can. What if it is not simply the case that the school neglects to foster faith, hope, and love, but gives to young people either paltry imitations thereof, or poisonous impostors?” – Professor Anthony Esolen, The Faithlessness of Public Education.
THE MIKE CHURCH SHOW IS NOW AVAILABLE TO LISTEN TO LIVE! ON APPLE’S ITUNES!
Why You Need To Listen To The Pearcing Truth’s Series On Economics As If Families Mattered – The Federalist headline screams the current state of our civil, “economic” affairs. Yo, Big Business: Money Doesn’t Give You A Right To Manipulate Politics. It doesn’t? Then are you ready to begin implementing a system of Distributism, solidarity and subsidiarity? While ‘Murican Government has become the national religion, business and the exchange of money for pleasure and profit have become her powerful parishioners. Since we rarely know the people who grow or make our food or anything else for that matter, business has become a ubiquitous, requisite agent for exchange of what we want, mildly tempered by what we are willing to borrow to get it. Micro systems of barter exchange are gone, save for the rare entities that have carved out niche markets serving the locals, folks we used to call friends and neighbors. My ongoing feature series with the author of Small Is Still Beautiful, Joseph Pearce, delves heavily into this subject and is MUST LISTENING for anyone truly interested in avoiding Amazon et al from controlling the food supply and thus what is acceptable, secular behavior to get it. Download all 4 Episodes here.
Would Dennis leary Last 3 Minutes In a Room Full of Millennials? – The New York Times’ columnist David Brooks has been speaking at college campæ lately and then holding discussion groups afterwards to try and get inside the minds of millennials. What he has discovered inside is even worse than we have portrayed on these pages and on the MCS. Brooks cannot (or chooses not to) see the poverty of these young people’s souls, a poverty that the young once filled with a zeal for the… well, read Brook’s conclusion and you tell me.
I was also struck by pervasive but subtle hunger for a change in the emotional tenor of life. “We’re more connected but we’re more apart,” one student lamented. Again and again, students expressed a hunger for social and emotional bonding, for a shift from guilt and accusation toward empathy. “How do you create relationship?” one student asked. That may be the longing that undergirds all others. [emphasis mine – MC]
Anyone want to tackle this challenge?
The Public School Factories Are Inhuman, Soulless Indoctrination Camps – In today’s Veritas et Sapientia I express my joy that Professor Anthony Esolen (Thomas More College, NH) is writing about the soulless, prison camps ‘Muricah’s public schools have become. Esolen began by asking a question about the matter on Facebook which then turned into an avalanche of discussion that revealed the grave concern many have over the issue but had previously either been afraid or suffered apathy in discussing. The horse has now left the barn:
“…these [questions] persuaded me that, for all my suspicion of our large public institutions supposedly devoted to education, I had not come close to grasping how inhuman and soul-destroying they have become. They are places of neither faith, nor hope, nor love. Of course you do not seek faith, hope, and love at a shopping mall or those other places I have mentioned. But what if school, by its very nature, ought to be such a place?”
Indeed. Now let’s spread the discussion beyond the confines of “trad-Cath” social media, the children deserve it and are counting on us to act like adults… nay PARENTS, and protect them from this lurking, evil.
The Warmonger Yes Men Finally Get A No Vote On Yemen – A bi-partisan band of U.S. Senators is trying to force the Congress to do its job and force President trump to stop the proxy war we are fighting in Yemen and either A. declare it as a war or B. remove all troops, supplies and funding from our Saudi “allies” who are committing the war crimes there. Hallelujah, glory be and “pass the Tylenol”!
The Nagging Endurance of Little Jimmy Madison, Misquoted – 5 Years ago, Senator Rand Paul was doing a lot of public speaking and in his speeches he was using a quote from James Madison about the war powers of the Presidency and the dangerous waters they had sailed into. I did a little investigation that proved that Paul’s quote was passed on and edited a couple times and was basically a paraphrase of what Madison wrote. You can read all about it and see the original letter Madison wrote to Jefferson here! In the article above about the war in Yemen, Bruce Fein used the paraphrased quote Senator Paul had used.
What’s In A Great Title? This: “Has The OS For The Western World Crashed?” – Park Macdougal reviews Patrick Deneen’s Why Liberalism Failed and comes away wondering if Deneen is correct, what that means for the Western world as it heads into its perdition phase.
“Deneen … suggests that the best way forward, for those so inclined, is to abandon the culture war and begin the practical work of rebuilding local communities that can embody the connections to people and place that he worries liberalism has eroded… It’s not a solution for everyone… If Deneen’s critique is sound, then maybe such experiments will work, as people respond positively to the draws of non- or post-liberal community. If he’s wrong — if people really do find such arrangements so stultifying that they cannot bear the pressure — then only those who opted in will have been harmed. At a time when ever-larger factions of left and right are fleeing from liberalism, many of them for ominous alternatives, that may be the best we can hope.” [emphasis mine – MC]
“Ominous alternatives”, you mean more ominous than Communism, Fascism, Taoism and the rest of the soul devouring rot that liberalism directly produced? Here’s my analysis: almost everyone who will atempt to answer the question of where to from here has ruled out the one alternative history says will work: Christendom because to return to it is to admit the failings of the philosophical error – Liberalism – that crushed Christendom in the first place. Then there is the return to asceticism and the pursuit of eternal things that modern man is actually willing to trade for the ephemeral novelties Liberalism produces. This could get ominous indeed.
What The World Needs Now, Is Dad’s, Great Dads – Hans Fienne exhorts those still smarting over Parkland, Vegas, Columbine et al to get back to Christendom without actually saying that.
Bring Me Your Tired, Huddled, Secular Masses – When “immigration reform” is discussed in ‘Muricah it usually pits the “left” versus the “right’s” solution du jour but no one ever asks the question of ultimate causes and ultimate purposes. Those wishing to build a Great Wall of China wall on the Texas/Mexico border don’t even acknowledge there is an ultimate cause and purpose so they wind up falling for any action that waves a flag and is presented as “conservative”. When you have a population of 325 million souls the immigration purpose can not possibly be population stability as Joseph Mussomeli claims at The Imaginative Conservative; otherwise his piece is worth reading.
Hollywood Is In ICU But Dr. Christopher Nolan Is On the Case – There are a handful of writer-director’s in “Hollywood” that aim high and score high, Christopher Nolan is one of them, on the other end of the spectrum is nearly everything the Weinstein’s and their diabolical smut factories turn out as “film art”. I love Nolan’s Dunkirk because I see in it the Good, the True and the Beautiful printed all over it. God’s mercy is also implanted in the film in a major way when the Shivering Soldier character (played by Irish actor Cilian Murphy) is forgiven for causing the death of a young boy trying to help him aboard one of the civilian vessels that responded to the evacuation crisis at Dunkirk in WWII. Now comes Grayson Quay with a new review of Interstellar, shining light on things that I had not previously noticed.
“The bonds of love, faith, and tradition that tie us together are not mere hangover from some primitive herd instinct. They are, as Brand says, “observable, powerful.” When Cooper attempts to reduce human love to social utility, Brand asks what possible social utility there can be in our love for people who have died. Cooper has no answer, but [Edmund] Burke does. “People who never look back to their ancestors will not look forward to posterity.”
When Lent is over, its in my viewing que!
Buchanan: Nationalism Rises… Finally – Let it be said that I am not a proponent of ‘Murican nationalism because it is based on a false premise: America is a nation. Patrick J Buchanan believes ‘Muricah is a nation and makes a good case for its resurgence (I dissent).
“Nationalism sustains Vladimir Putin. Nationalism and its unique identity as a Hindu nation unites and powers India. Here, today, it is “America First” nationalism.”
I promote and pray for the “nationalism” that unites us under the flag of The Sacred Heart of Jesus, available here.
Hope Springs Eternal For An Infernal Cause – That ‘Muricah’s foreign policy – read our war policy – “needs an overhaul” is the understatement of the entire human race. Andrew Miller and Richard Sokolsky give this reform the old college try and thus try and keep hope in the American union of States alive. I applaud the effort but do not believe the results called for will ever materialize.
Machine Gun ‘Muricah Produced Coward, Niklaus Cruz AND Coward, Deputy Scott Peterson – You have to admire the zeal of #MAGA flag wavers, standing at attention when the socialist Pledge is said, hand over heart, trucker cap doffed off. These faithful really believe there is manufacturing facility in every town in Muricah that cranks out patriotic, brave, humble young men who will jump in front of bullets aimed at fair maidens and to be fair, there are some of those young men but not nearly enough. Back to our narrative, if the #MAGA spies a young man in a uniform of the armed services or the police forces, there is the expected GUARANTEE that he is a bullet stopper, maybe even a multiple bullet stopper. Then there’s the reality and we meet deputy Scott Peterson. This is the cop who stood outside the Parkland FL massacre, in uniform and on duty, waiting for the bullets to stop flying, so he could courageously go inside and begin filing a report. John Zmirak has a pointed, frank essay about Peterson, read it here.
The transgenderMammy War Against Rick Flair – First of all, I did not know that there was such a thing as “female wrestling” as in Greco-Roman wrestling. Then I did not know that girls could publicly admit they are “doping” which recently cost Lance Armstrong 7 Tour de France medals and the entire Russian Olympic team their entrance into the games. BUT if you are a mentally confused, sexually charged girl and are “transitioning” to become a male, then doping is encouraged, praised, made acceptable by law, and can be used to gain an advantage over other female wrestlers who are prohibited from “doping”. Meet Mack Beggs an 18 year old girl you would mistake for a buy, armpit hair and all, thanks to the steroid treatments she is receiving, legally and yes, wrestling as a “girl” in Texas. Where are the feminist purists to demand that only women who embrace the fact of their female biology are allowed to be publicly called girls when they are committing gendercide against their female nature!? where’s Rick Flair when you need him to drop a “suplex” on this fake-femme!?
Sodomites For Starvation – ABC News has the “heart warming story” of USA Olympic sodomites who “rescued” a dog from a South Korean meat farm. I wonder what has happened to our “sensitivity” directed towards cultures that are different then our star-spangled awesome one? Koreans eat dog meat. But since ‘Muricans don’t eat dog meat = eating dog meat is wrong and must be stopped. Thus Olympic athlete and sodomite Gus Kenworthy and his “boyfriend” visited the farm and “rescued” the dog. The proper context here is to see the dog as a source of nutrition for some Korean family who would have eaten the butchered animal the same way we feast on lambs, cows, chickens and pigs. But hey, the sodomites revolt against God and nature now extends to correcting the appetites of anyone you as inappropriate. I wonder if the sodomites, upon their return to ‘Muricah will visit a cow farm and “rescue” Elsie from becoming a hamburger served up to a 400 lb, Wal-Mart Hov-a-round shopper!?
Welcome To Machine Gun ‘Muricah, Coming To An Elementary School Prison Camp Near You! – It had to happen folks: Bullet Proof Backpacks for ages 3 and up and guess what? ‘Muricah’s reality TV darlings are already buying them for their tikes…have a nice day in the war zone sweetie, don’t forget to duck!
“According to Sarah Pampillonia, a mum and fifth-grade teacher, who spoke to The Cut, she considered buying one for her four-year-old after seeing a Facebook ad for the backpacks. “I imagine that I would use a superhero like Captain America, who he loves, to explain it,” she said. But Pampillonia is not alone. Real Housewives of Atlanta star and mum, Kim Zolciak-Biermann posted a photo of the bulletproof backpacks she purchased for her children to Instagram Wednesday night writing “I just asked Kroy what can we do as parents to protect our children every day in this crazy sad world. He said, ‘best thing we could do for now is get bulletproof book bags.’
Wonderful. Don’t deal with the ultimate cause of the problem, instead bring the rest of the kids into armed conflict and if one of them gets murdered at school, oh well, there will be a CNN twonhall afterward to yell and scream, then go home and watch Real Housewives. We are doomed and tragically, so are our kids.
The Public Schools DO Look Like Prisons – Where The Cult of Death Must Prevail Upon The Inmates To Obtain Release. This is not the exact headline Stella Morabito comes to but it is close:
“The Size and Model of Mass Schooling Is Alienating – Back in 1929-30, there were about 248,000 public schools in the United States, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. How many today? Far less than half. By 2013-14, the number had shrunk to 98,000. When you consider that the U.S. population nearly tripled in that timeframe, there’s no question this factory model of schooling has grown exponentially. The numbers speak to the intense bureaucratization of a public school system that is becoming more centralized with less local control, packing ever-larger numbers of students in one place. The natural effect is an emotional malaise that fuels a sense of confusion and detachment.”
And what, pray tell, have we been discussing the last two weeks on the Mike Church Show: the CONFUSED state of the world where even the faithful receive confusing words and decrees from our prelate leaders. Oh well, time for some Genesis.
The Demons Have Come For The Kids & Indiana Did NOT Tell them No – I’ve been warning anyone who will listen that the newest frontier in Satan’s war against mankind and life itself is what is rapidly becoming a pandemic of diabolical creation: transgenderism. This zeitgeist will replace the contracepting and killing of the soon to be born because the field is so lucrative for the demonic: children. Children are with us, they have tangible, mobile form, they have names, they have lives and most importantly, they have souls that may have been baptized thus taken from Satan’s book. Make no mistake, folks, this is a war that will pit the fabric of Western life-its precious democracies- and those who govern inside it against parents in a battle for souls. Margot Cleaveland informs us of what the Indiana Legislature just made LAW:
“Senate Bill 65 leaves intact any school anti-bullying measures, and transgender students would be equally protected from harassment from their peers…. The committee also removed the requirement that parents consent before their children receive “instruction” on gender identity. What does that mean? Schools may teach children as young as age five that a boy can become a girl or a girl can become a boy. Teachers may tell students that they must refer to a transgender student as belonging to a false sex and using incorrect pronouns. In other words, it allows exactly what transpired in a California kindergarten in August.” [emphasis mine-MC]
Recall that Indiana is the home state of VP Pence and the state that infamously passed then repealed their own RFPA after the Gaystapo assailed the owners of Mystic Pizza. The bottom line is this: The Church better wrap its head around the gravity of this threat, pronto, or there will be no entity left in liberalism’s paradise, i.e. ‘Muricah, to stop it. This is abortion in the 35th trimester folks. The in utero abortion failed Beazelbub so they’ve moved on to aborting the very nature of the survivor’s natural identity. if that’s not a direct affront to God, please tell me what is. It’s war folks, gird, your, loins.
The Social Media & Priestly Canonization Of
Saint Billy Graham Reminds Us Of The Fall of Christendom – Father Dwight Longenecker was quick to post on Facebook, his canonization of Saint Graham, see it for yourself.
“Therefore, apart from being the most famous evangelist of our age, he was also a model of Christian ministry. As such he is a model for all priests, pastors, popes and bishops. I went on to become first an Anglican minister, and then a Catholic priest, but in that journey I have never turned my back on my good Evangelical upbringing. I have not denied all the good things from that Christian heritage–I have just added to them, and if I take any label at all it is that of an “Evangelical Catholic.” Billy Graham was part of that foundation and he was a true Man of God.”
So then “true men of God” don’t ever have to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation? Receive the Eucharist? Receive the Sacrament of Marriage? Go to Mass on Holy Days of Obligation? Accept the teaching authority of The Church established by Christ? The authority of the Pope? In exploring this I decided to look up what would constitute a valid “ecumenism” between Protestant men like the Reverend Graham and Father Longenecker. Here is what the teaching says (in summary).
“In this regard, any “ecumenism” that is not false will have as its goal the bringing of all into the Church as formal members, be they Protestant, Jewish, Buddhist, Muslim, Hindu, pagan, or secular. The goal of any true “ecumenism” isn’t “unity” because the Church is already unified; His Body is already unified. The return of heretics, schismatics, and apostates to the bosom of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Catholic Church is the only goal of true ecumenism.”
It’s a Gas: The DeceptiCONS Lied, There Was NO Evidence Assdad “Gassed His Own People” – You have to hand it to the Deep State’s war-boom puppets, they appear in public as apostles of world peace and saviors of the oppressed while living real lives of sin, deceit and conspiracy against The Faith. Not bad for “political science” majors who wouldn’t know the business end of a Skilsaw or a chisel if you handed them one but boy howdy can they make war! Now comes the revelation that the latest attempt to goad the Syrians into a war and thus the Russians was all a leap of faith. You know, the latest “Assad gassed his own people” accusation. How fitting that the war-machine’s newest BFF, a man nicknamed “Maddog” has spilled the beans: there was NO gas! According to the AP account of Mattis confession.
“We have other reports from the battlefield from people who claim it’s been used,” Mattis told reporters at the Pentagon. “We do not have evidence of it.”
He said he was not rebutting the reports.
“We’re looking for evidence of it, since clearly we are dealing with the Assad regime that has used denial and deceit to hide their outlaw actions,” Mattis said.
Got that, citizen? 5 Years after McCain et al nearly guilt-tripped President Obama into invading Syria, there was/is NO EVIDENCE that the gas attack ever happened and certainly none that Assad was the perp, but go ahead and go to CPAC and listen to the warhawks beat the drum of “regime change” in Syria using the carcasses of your sons and daughters because that is soooooo “conservative”! Sure it is, in fact, it actually is a gas.
DeceptiCONNED:CPAC, Swapping Fraud And Body Fluids Since 2001 – If I told you that our ruling media elites were going to promote the following at a political conference, you would think they were of what affiliation?:
the National Front… advocates for maintaining France’s universal government-run health care system as a form of “national solidarity,” lowering the retirement age to 60, forcing banks to lend money to small- and medium-sized companies, and increasing public worker wages. It calls America’s withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accord a “negative signal for the necessary action in favor of the environment” and favors the nationalization of all roads. Its political manifesto is filled with sentences like “For real social justice, educational services [meaning both private and state schools] need to find internships for students.”
You’re probably thinking this is a conference featuring Oprah and Joy Behar with keynote speakers Pocahontas Warren and Hillary, right? No, the speaker is Marine LePon and the event is CPAC, proving the annual gathering of wealthy and privileged “conservatives” is nothing more than a chance for the Echo Chamber Elite to consume the world’s elite food, wine and liquor, swap body fluids and SnapChat addresses and vow to do it all again at the “Voters Family Values Summit”. To reiterate Fr. Rutler from yesterday’s show, the real battlefield of today is the one that re-establishes Christendom, not ‘Murican hegemony but there are no men to lead it:
“In spiritual combat, there is no teatime, and effective strategies cannot be plotted at conferences, synods, workshops, and costly conventions at resort hotels with multiple “break-out” sessions and mellow music.”
Don’t worry, you won’t find Father Rutler at CPAC nor will you find any acknowledgement of the spiritual war going on right now, but hey, Mark Levin’s new show on Fox starts Sunday night!
This Is A Land Of 2nd Amendment Confusion – I am happy to repeat the argument I’ve made for 11 years running: the Constitution’s Second Amendment does NOT guarantee you the “right to keep and bear arms” and the NRA and gun-lobby’s perversion of the Amendment has led us to the crisis of today. I realize that since the 2nd Amendment has become a de facto, universal writ, from here to the ice-world of Hoth and back and so putting the horse back in the barn is almost impossible, but try we must. Now along comes John Daniel Davidson arguing that it is now time, in the wake of Parkland, FL, to “repeal the Second Amendment”. With Davidson’s piece in mind you should now be able to clearly see the folly of the Second Amendment as a universal RTKBA: if you make the 2nd Amendment universal to provide carry then it can be used to deny carry. The equitable path forward is clear: Tell the federal courts to butt out of all lawsuits against state-passed, sensible gun regulations and let responsible governments (and they must be held to account) regulate sale and possession.
The Age Of Prelates In Skinny Jeans – Back in June, Father George Rutler asked the question: where are the valiant Romans when the WORLD needs Rome and her King to save her from perdition once again. 9 months later, I’d say the situation is now chronic if not on life-support. Fr. Rutler nails the problem “churchmen” are possessed of today: they crave Civil power when they have direct, assured access to the greatest power on earth: ecclesiastical. Father Rutler pulls no punches.
“In spiritual combat, there is no teatime, and effective strategies cannot be plotted at conferences, synods, workshops, and costly conventions at resort hotels with multiple “break-out” sessions and mellow music.”
The Age of Media Hacks In Skinny Jeans – “Parkland FL is a tragedy that will not be soon forgotten…” is baloney and the Media Industrial Complex that feigns “sympathy” for the survivors knows it. Note the near pornographic abuse of putting teenagers on camera to “tell their stories” and “hear their suggestions” on what to do about “school violence”, isn’t that what parents and school boards are charged with doing!? So why is CNN, FOX et al, parading teenagers to share their eulogies and trauma? Fox’s Laura Ingraham is being deified for “standing up to LeBron James” over “gun control” comments but it was Ingraham who put a 16 year old on-air the night of the shootings who ended his infomercial for gun control with “you need to call your Congressman and get involved in the solution”.
Did George Washington Convert On His Deathbed? – Let it first be said that I would love to report to you that the “Father of His Country”, George Washington, became a Roman Catholic before he died. Indeed, that would change the biography of ‘Muricah’s first president and give some gravitas to Brother Andre’s call for Reconquest but alas the story is NOT true. Marian Horvat, John Horvat’s sister, has the most complete analysis of this claim I’ve ever read.
“Washington, like his more articulate contemporary and fellow-Freemason Jefferson, summarily rejected what they called “dogmaticism.” Like Jefferson, he was a Deist, a man who follows no particular religion but only acknowledges the existence of an impersonal God, without any articles of faith.”
Listen to my CRUSADE Channel colleague Rick Barrett’s outstanding interview with Ryan Grant on this subject, here.
The Devil Made Him Do It – The phrase “the demons are ascendent, they’ve come for the children and they won’t take no for an answer” is gaining in credibility and unfortunately, in provable instances. Now comes the news that the Parkland FL, mass murderer, Nikolas Cruz, “heard demons” around him but no one believed him. We also learn that the FBI had tips on the kid’s erratic behavior and did nothing about it
The Traditionalists Are Coming! The Traditionalists Are Coming! – We’re starting to see signs of a renaissance of Christian tradition in popular media. Yesterday the Archbishop of New Orleans asked parishioners to join him in battle against pornography! Now Paul Bryan takes to the American Conservative to continue the charge up Rotten Paradigm Hill.
“The future of a meaningful political alternative to the underlying liberalism, materialism, and me-first individualism on the left and right will revolve around traditionalists and pro-family conservative individuals who define their own destinies instead of letting themselves be engineered into destinies manufactured by multinational corporations and boardroom gremlins with diversity outreach strategies.”
This is a refrain you should be familiar with from the Mike Church Show.
The Parrot Press Corps Gets The Mass Murderers They Need – If the broadcast media stopped their “if it leads it bleeds” editorial policy would that stop most mass murders from occurring? Rebekkah Jorgensen thinks so but I remain unconvinced, but she does have a point: Media saturation combined with our obsession with materialism does influence our yewts behavior.
“This naturally raises important ethical questions. Namely, does the news industry mandate coverage of events that devastate small communities? Or can these occurrences be limited to the cities in which they occur, to avoid making the perpetrator an overnight celebrity?”
She’s right and doesn’t every social media addict, yearn for the fake adulation of others that the Parrot Press Corps/Media Industrial Complex delivers?
Our Lady Delivers What We’ve Prayed For: “Conservatives” Asked To Ban Porn! – I have not officially formed the CRUSADER Knights of The Rosary but I have mentioned it dozens of times the last 2 months and have also asked the Real Men who listen to the MCS, regardless of denomination, to join me daily in praying to The Mother of God via The Holy Rosary -Sancta Dei Gentrix – for an end to the legal protections for 4 Mortal Sins: Abortion, Contraception, Sodomy and….Pornography. Now along comes Michael Warren on the pages of The American Conservative Magazine rallying the “conservative” troops to…. BAN PORNOGRAPHY. And get a load of Warren’s reasoning, does it sound familiar?
“Fighting Porn: The Reviving Cause Social Conservatism Needs – It isn’t a last gasp; it’s a new beginning, one that’s rallying a new breed of young traditionalists.”
Thank you Sancta Dei Genetrix for letting us know the prayer request and the CRUSADE has won your favor! Now, can we win these “young traditionalists” over to The CRUSADE Channel and away from the secular schlock Hannity, Webb et al serve up? I think I know who to ask a favor of for that one. ——>
Our Lady Delivers What We’ve Prayed For: “Conservatives” Asked To Ban Porn 2! – Flipping to the pages of the NY Times, on the same subject, Ross Douthat has an editorial from last Sunday under the style of:
LET’S BAN PORN “Trump’s grotesqueries have stirred up a feminist reaction that’s more moralistic and less gamely sex-positive than the Clinton-justifying variety, and there’s no necessary reason why its moralistic gaze can’t extend to our porn addiction. And indeed, I think the part of the #MeToo movement that’s interested in discussing sexual unhappiness and not just sexual harassment clearly wants to talk about pornography, even if it doesn’t quite realize that yet.”
Douthat is the token “conservative” Catholic at the NY Times (David Brooks is also on that list) and is in his mid-thirties. Demographically speaking, this is the most encouraging development I’ve seen since launching the CRUSADE Channel.
The Parkland FL Madman Shows Signs of a Lack of God In His Life – The Daily Mail story on Nicholas Cruz paints a picture of a deeply disturbed young man who was in need of serious help and received nothing but scorn and rejection-the “bullying” culture we hear so much about. I’m not making excuses up for his murderous rampage but we’re not dealing “with a full deck” here and it is now, 18 counts of sad./
John Horvat: The Coming Tomorrow Without God – Recent events support our civilizations descent into a disordered, secular chaos where the only defense and worship of God is done by a militant “remnant”. Don’t laugh, this future is being planned for right now (see AI story below). John Horvat has a telling piece on this very subject today. Reviewing the new book Hono Deus, Horvat sounds frightened.
“What makes Prof. Harari’s history of tomorrow so terrifying is that he is deadly serious about the project. Not only is he serous but he is joined by a secular establishment that has put this vision together. You see how this vision logically fits in with a vast framework of data networks that tend to make this future feel so very present.”
For more evidence of this read Hugh Owens’ magnificent review of Tielhard de Chardin’s work in the same direction. Note that today’s Mike Church Show discussion centered on this and my contention that the new catholic church has already been formed. The “c” is lower case because it isn’t The Holy replacement it is the unholy, secular Greek use of the term katholica meaning “universal” as in New World Order, one world government/religion.

Dressing With Dignity: Time To Give Katie Perry-Like Immodesty The Heave And The Ho – Colleen Hammond’s book “Dressing With Dignity” (available here) sets the bar for modesty and dress but doesn’t just give fashion advice to girls and women, it give salvation advice:
“Style must never be a proximate [near] occasion of sin… It is often said, almost with passive resignation, that fashions reflect the customs of a people. But it would be more exact and much more useful to say that they express the decision and moral direction that a nation intends to take: either to be ship-wrecked in licentiousness, or maintain itself at the level to which it has been raised by religion and civilization.”
This is a subject near and dear to my heart and a vocation (dressing with dignity) I have pursued with zeal the last 2 years after realizing the damage done to other’s dignity by my lack of sartorial effort.
Doctor, Doctor, Give Me The Screws… – The transgenderMammy™ contagion has spread so deeply into the medical profession that young women are now being mutilated for profit without any oversight and no mental counseling. That is the conclusion of the new book When Harry Became Sally reviewed here by Austin Ruse, and it ain’t for the squeamish.
“One girl started on testosterone gel at 18, switching shortly thereafter to injections. At college her “voice broke,” her hips narrowed, her shoulders broadened. Then she had her otherwise healthy breasts amputated, an operation that was botched and left her with severe scarring. Anderson points out that in all these interactions with the medical profession she never received any counseling on why “she felt so strongly that she wanted to be a man.” She now says, “I have become a female who looks like a man. I will always have a broken voice and will never grow breasts…” And she never received even a moment of counseling.” [Emphasis mine-M.Ç.]
The book’s stories are harrowing from the point of view that bodies and lives are being physically altered with no chance of repair. This is being done, allegedly, to bring about a more fairer world in which those born into the bodies of the sex they believe is not for them. But what is fair about having your breasts cut off while being doped up with drugs that get you banned from any professional sport? This is the work of Beazelbub and the boys and the poor souls who undergo these mutilations are the prizes.
It’s February 2018 And The Immodesty Is About To Go Nuclear Because It WENT Nuclear – Venerable Bishop Sheen called out ‘Muricah back in the 1960’s while speaking to a group of young Catholics on “Youth and Sex”: “8:15 in the morning, the 6th of August, 1945, when we flew a military plane over this city, when we dropped that atomic bomb on it; that bomb on blotted out boundaries. There was no longer a boundary between the military and the civilian, between the helper and the helped, between the wounded and the nurse and the doctor, between the living and the dead. For even the living who escaped the bomb were already half dead. So we broke down boundaries and limits and from that time on the world has said we want no one limiting me. … You want no restraint, no boundaries, no limits. I have to do what I want to do.

The Tragedy of Post Christian, Philosophia Perennis Devoid Thinking – Read this piece from AmConMag writer Noah Millman to get a closeup view of why Philosophia Perennis is so desperately needed to corral the erroneous thinking Men are sure to engage in when NOT grounded in the eternal quest for True Wisdom i.s. Sapientia. The issue Noah, is not whether “only the Saints” can live by the Magisterial code, it is that by God’s Grace the Saints DID live the Tradition WHILE receiving the Graces needed to do so. You cannot approach Grace as zero sum, mathematics, as in if I do ______ I will receive ______ “Grace credits” but if I do ______I will have deducted ______ Grace Credits. Grace is present in the world and we are given the supply needed at Baptism, the suffering of the Christian Faithful is simply to maintain the state you enter at Baptism, using the Gospels and the Traditional Teaching as MEANS to that END. As Padré Gaetano tells us in Humility of Heart: “And has not a saint abundant reasons, from the thought of his own weakness, to live always in a state of great humility, when he knows that from one hour to another he may lose the grace of God and the kingdom of heaven which he has merited by years of laboriously-acquired virtues? “Unless the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it.”
