Veritas et Sapientia – “A female dress is a dress; a male dress is a uniform. Men dress smartly so as not to be noticed; but all women dress to be noticed — gross and vulgar women to be grossly and vulgarly noticed, wise and modest women to be wisely and modestly noticed.” G.K. Chesterton,King Edward VII
THE MIKE CHURCH SHOW IS NOW AVAILABLE TO LISTEN TO LIVE! ON APPLE’S ITUNES RADIO!
Listen To The Mike Church Show Live! – EVERY WEEKDAY MORNING FROM 5:00 – 11 AM.
McCarthy: End “Birthright Citizenship” But End It By Congressional Statute – My old buddy Andy McCarthy is all for ending birthright citizenship but he thinks Congress should do it and even then it would only have a 50/50 shot at surviving a court challenge. I think McCarthy is optimistic on the court challenge and that’s the rub: if we KNOW that the intent of the amendment was NOT to make children born of foreigners American citizens then why the seemingly intractable devotion to a perverted, destructive interpretation!? Tell the judiciary to pound sand and use the executive branch to enforce the darned thing correctly!
Halloween As “American Civic Liturgy”? You Can Almost Hear The Children Chanting USA! USA! At Your Door Tonight – The usually reliable Casey Chalk explores the origins of Halloween in ‘Muricah and uses the term “liturgy”
So many aspects of Halloween drive us towards a shared American civic liturgy: the ancient historical traditions that intersect among the many cultures that share our nation; the communal gatherings, which still exist in such forms as fall festivals; and, of course, neighborhood trick-or-treating. As American history demonstrates, the holiday has always been an essentially communal one.
Pity that the “shared liturgy” isn’t the one given us in the form of All Hallowed’s Eve i.e. the day before All Saints Day!
Just Say No: The Papa Francis Option, An Official Copout For Lukewarm, Catholic Ninnies – It had to happen. The culmination of the anti-Pope’s CRUSADE, the anti-Church needed to become its own “thing”, so say hello to The Francis Option for Evangelizing a World in Flux (I’m not making this up). This is badddddd folks and not even original. From the “Option” piece by Austen Ivereigh we get “the plan”.
“Both [Rod] Dreher and Francis agree — in line with Benedict XVI, and with the forecast in Romano Guardini’s 1950 The End of the Modern World — that Christendom is over and irrecoverable, and that it is futile and counter-productive to invest energy and resources in unwinnable political battles that only reinforce the idea of Christianity as a set of ethical precepts that the Church seeks to impose via the state. new meeting place today is the “cloud”, characterized by instability since everything evaporates and thus loses consistency’… Yet where Dreher advocates a strategy of resistance and retreat into what he calls ‘stable communities of faith’, little islands ‘of sanctity and stability amid the high tide of liquid modernity’, Francis, drawing on the vision of Vatican II mediated through the Latin American pastoral experience of the people of God, calls for something far more radical: the rebirth of a new Christian culture.”
What, what what! the Hades is wrong the current and the old “Christian”!? Dreher unpacks much of what is wrong with Ivereigh’s “Option” in this piece co-written by Catholic activist Larry Chapp who has founded and lives on the Dorothy Day Catholic Workers Farm. Chapp’s response begins with a statement of what should be obvious: Pope Francis isn’t Catholic in the classical sense of the word and neither is his gang of homosexual apologists and “pastoral mercy” dealers (read, sin enablers).
“the “Francis Option” that seeks only to build bridges and to build a new Christian culture from below by reminding people of God’s mercy. You cannot make this up. Are they this naive? Do they really think the issue is that people are alienated from the Church because they think it lacks mercy? That people are just waiting around for God to forgive them of their sins? Do they not know that it is the very concept of sin that has been rejected and thus the entire Christian narrative, root and branch, has been rejected? These people really do not get it. Or maybe they do. Maybe they know that nobody is waiting for mercy and all they want to do is approve of what is happening in the culture.” [emphasis mine – M.C.]
Hilltops, farms in the middle of nowhere, catacombs were part of our humorous “what are they going to force us into next” dialogue – its not funny anymore, its actually happening and its happening fast. Perhaps reading up on what Saint Benedict actually did and following that through a modern paradigm is the way forward? Oremus. MORE.
Big Mouth Gets Away With Teen Porn While Apu Gets Killed Off – Well, its official: Apu, the convenience store owner in the Simpson’s, will be quietly taken off the show because a gaggle of #SJW creeps say the white guy creator was exploiting the Asian. Pradheep Shanker mourns Apu’s demise and what it means for the growing zeitgeist of only allowing opinions that comport precisely with the minority report, complaint of the month club’s current preferences,
“I take Kondabolu at his word that he wanted Apu to survive this, but the reality is that many of his supporters wanted Apu to be deleted from our historical memory, and they’ve gotten their wish. This is how these cultural battles inevitably conclude, and Kondabolu was naïve to think otherwise. Comedy great Mel Brooks once said that our ‘stupidly politically correct’ culture would result in the death of comedy. I think he is being proven right.”
These millennial buffoons don’t know comedy, they know perversion and perverts and turn those same pervert’s inability to control their perversions – read sins – into jokes – see the Netflix show Big Mouth – and get laughs from a growing audience of…you guessed it perverts. If you doubt this, check out the story of “comedienne” Sarah Silverman telling Howard Stern what she and her friend Louis C.K. do when they’r “hanging out”. Stern laughed, his boobus engineerus crew laughed but its not funny. Sin is being normalized and good humor is being banned.
The ChiComs Are NOT Going All Catholic-y – The Catholic News Agency reports the latest act of Comunist rage against the rising Catholic Faith in China: The destruction of a pair of shrines to Our Lady.
According to reports from AsiaNews, government authorities destroyed the Marian shrines of Our Lady of the Seven Sorrows in Dongergou (Shanxi), and Our Lady of Bliss, also known as Our Lady of the Mountain, in Anlong (Guizhou). The shrines were pilgrimage sites for both the official Chinese Catholic Church and the “underground” Catholic Church in China.
So much for Papa Francis’ “trust the Chinese government” pronouncements.
What To Think of The Pittsburg Massacre? That It Was NOT Trump’s Fault – David Harsanyi comments on the massacre of Jews attending services at a Pittsburg Synagogue.
If you think Trump should bring down the temperature, you have a point. If you think Trump should turn down the temperature but you fail to mention that a progressive yelling about “health care” tried to assassinate the entire GOP leadership on a baseball field, you don’t really care about the temperature. If you fail to mention that Democrats have been accusing Republicans of wanting to the kill the poor and young, of trying to destroy the planet, of being “terrorists” after every school shooting, you don’t care about the temperature. If you rationalize mob behavior every time you don’t get your way in the electoral process, you don’t care about the temperature. And if your first instinct is to play politics with tragedy for partisan gain, you are part of the problem.
Immediately following the shooting news, the usual suspects reacted with the usual unhinged fury: Trump did it.
Chris Ferrara: The Day of The Duds – The Hot Dog Bomber is no bomber at all and Chris Ferrara nails that point in Day of The Duds and Day of The Duds Pt 2.
“Also seemingly intent on maximizing the “threat” posed by Sayoc’s props was FBI director Christopher Wray. Having failed to execute Peter Strozk’s “insurance policy” for the ouster of President Trump by framing him for the non-existent, non-crime of “colluding with the Russians,” the Federal Bureau of Insurrection now clearly has a motive to exploit Sayoc’s supposedly pro-Trump hoax as the Deep State’s latest to bid delegitimize the Trump presidency.”
The FBI has become the go to agency for libtards – recall how they obsessed over Brett Kavanaugh being subjected to his 7th investigation – that would supposedly turn up evidence he was a serial gang rapist – are now calling a clearly fruit-loop Trump supporter the “MAGA Bomber” when, as Ferrara points out – there are NO BOMBS!
Ba-alifornia Is Now Actually Promoting Itself As A Satanic Destination – If you drive Interstate 5 in Ba’alifornia you will see two signs of the “Adopt a Highway” type that read “The Art of Satan”…. no joke. John Horvat has started a petition to have them removed but what ought to really be removed is legalized acceptance of religious plurality that makes this stuff possible. See my article on restoring the Kingship of Christ for His feast day.
Michael Moore Distributes Film Showing The Hot Dog Bomber At Trump Rally – Moore sent a film crew to a Trump rally in Florida shortly after Trump’s inauguration and lo and behold – there is Cesar Sayoc – the man fingered as the Hot Dog Bomber, weilding a “CNN Sucks” sign similar to the one plastered on the side of his now infamous #MAGA Bomber van. What Moore does with the footage is try and paint Sayoc as a typical MAGA fan with “fear in his eyes”, a fear that “10,000 years of patriarchy” is being stolen from men like him by Hillary et al. I don’t know who’s more psychotic, Sayoc for his unhinged political activism or Moore for his unhinged view of everyone that disagrees with him as being a threat to civilization.
Trick Or Treat Saint Charlie [Brown]! – John Horvat asks the question: Can Halloween be Re-Christianized? In his exploration Horvat weaves a detailed history of the “holiday” (a word conjugated from the Catholic calendar’s myriad of “Holy days”) and then asks the titular question.
“Thus, any Christianized celebration of Halloween needs to reinforce the idea that there is a cultural battle going on between the forces of good and evil. Hell exists, and its fires must be avoided. What better way to demonstrate these truths than to point out the macabre manifestations of evil that appear everywhere during Halloween.”
Translation: Start celebrating Halloween as a Catholic, invite others to join you and pray for those who refuse.
The Sodomite Sacristans Are Now “Out” In The Open & Ascendent – Witness the scandalous, outrageous, blasphemous and sacrilegious “ministry” of the “Rainbow Warrior” priest, “Father” Michael Guimond.
But according to the now-scrubbed Rainbow Warrior Facebook page, where Guimon’s name and phone number appeared, the men discuss much more.
They talk about “how to meet other GBTQQ men for friendship and romantic relationships, to navigating the difficulties of using social media and apps such as Grindr, where men often post false pictures or simply want to have casual sex rather than more intimate relationships.” [emphasis mine – MC]
“Father” Guimond also claims to be the prior of the Basilica of Our Lady of Sorrows and was holding meetings of his “Rainbow Warriors” there until Lifesite News broke the story in great detail and asked for comment.
After LifeSiteNews contacted the archdiocese and the order, the Rainbow Warrior Facebook page disappeared, and the ManKindPride meetup site listing Our Lady of Sorrows as the group’s meeting site now lists it as meeting elsewhere.
Reparations Needed, NOW – Straight up, this outrage must be addressed with prayer reparations and it must be addressed now. You can start by joining my confraternity and our martyr patron Jaques Cathelineau – The CRUSADER Knights of The Holy Rosary.
Gentlemen: Which of These Four Types of Man Are You? And Your Sons? – Regis Nicoll has separated modern men into 4 categories: Alpha Male, The Feminized Male, The über Male and the True Man. Read the characterizations and see which one best describes you and more importantly your son or grandson.Quoting comedian Michael Black, Nicoll observes.
“Men feel isolated, confused and conflicted about their natures. Many feel that the very qualities that used to define them—their strength, aggression and competitiveness—are no longer wanted or needed; many others never felt strong or aggressive or competitive to begin with. We don’t know how to be, and we’re terrified.”
Now, is that true or is it more accurate to say “We’re not allowed to be real men, and we’re terrified of the alternative”?
Every 500 Years There Is A Revolt Against Catholicism…The One We’re In Right Now Is The Worst of All – Ben Wicker gets right to the point in his essay about the cyclical, 500 year attack, weakening near death, revival cycle the Catholic Church endures but fears this one may take the whole edifice down with it, resulting in, you guessed it…. “catacombs dude.”
“So, this is a big crisis, arguably the biggest the Church has faced. That is why half-measures, bishops’ committees, solemn and airy declarations and stonewalling must stop. The Church must be scoured, and it seems that the laity must take the lead in the cleanup. At the end of my book The Reformation 500 Years Later, I argued that the two greatest enemies facing all Christians were Secularism and radical Islam. If I had waited a year to publish and known about the depth of the scandals, I would have named another.”
Wicker may not realize his minor contradiction here: The Church’s leaders ARE secularists, thus their flight away from orthodoxy and into novelty that’s now given way to normalizing perversion, cannot be of holy origins as surely as the pagan’s perversions it replaced were.
FLASHBACK-In July, 2015, The Remnant Newspaper Profiled The Mike Church Show – Membah…membah!? Fast forward to November of that year and Chris writes a followup “Too Catholic For Satellite Radio”. Thanks to Papa Francis deliberate attempt to bring an end to the Catholic Church by claiming he can change dogma (the licit Death Penalty), I am becoming #Too Catholic For Lukewarm Catholic Radio. Ferrara wrote the following which we at the CRUSADE Channel studio still believe is True and pursue improving it every day.
“Indeed, over the past year or so Mike Church has emerged as the only traditionally Catholic conservative in talk radio today, anywhere in the world. And I mean traditional. Not only during my appearances on the show, but now thematically, Mike has turned the longest running political talk show on Sirius Radio into an unabashed presentation of the Social Kingship of Christ, traditional Catholic moral teaching, and even the traditional Latin liturgy as the solution to what is evidently otherwise a terminal civilizational crisis. I have been invited on the show numerous times to defend all of these things explicitly, to speak of the one true Church, and even to call upon conservative Protestants to enter the Church if they are serious about saving our nation and our civilization.”
Thanks to you, fair reader, we have the chance to continue that fight but I am in constant need of your assistance, click here to chip in.
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 11 Episodes here.
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 October 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. Now let’s analyze that for a moment, is that happiness?”

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.”
