Mandeville, LA – Mike Church‘s daily Pile of Prep, Welcome to mikechurch
.com’s Pile of Prep, all the materials used to prepare the Mike Church show. John McCain’s political record is indefensible BUT that doesn’t make his Purple Heart and POW saga reproachable because ethics and morality say that is sinfully wrong and no one should be cheering it that feigns a claim for a moral revival (which will precede the political one). “…the society thereof a political society; for those who think that the principles of a political, a regal, a family, and a herile government are the same are mistaken, while they suppose that each of these differ in the numbers to whom their power extends, but not in their constitution: so that with them a herile government is one composed of a very few, a domestic of more, a civil and a regal of still more, as if there was no difference between a large family and a small city, or that a regal government and a political one are the same, only that in the one a single person is continually at the head of public affairs; in the other, that each member of the state has in his turn a share in the government, and is at one time a magistrate, at another a private person, according to the rules of political science. But now this is not true, as will be evident to any one who will consider this question in the most approved method.” – Aristotle, Politics

Presidential Pride & Picayunes – Donald Trump could benefit from a course of Philosophia Perennis and a focus on ethics which he appears to not have much stock of. It is one thing to publicly denounce John McCain’s unJust War lusts and the tens of thousands of Americans killed and wounded in them and quite another to assault the reality of McCain’s POW saga. This is yet another very LOUD example of the corrupt age we live in when Reality becomes a casualty of public discourse yet no one calls it what it is.
Today’s Guest: Fr. Marcel Guarnizo’s piece on the SCOTUS decision and the arguments put forward by “our side” which surrendered the moral defense of sacramental marriage to the abstract delusion of “a fundamental liberty interest”, whatever that is.
Recall that Fr. Cuarzino was embroiled in a controversy in 2012 because he PROPERLY refused to give communion to an announced lesbian, living in sin with her “lover”. Fr. Guarzino’s defense of his actions are precisely the kind of moral courage when one is defending what is Right & Just in the Magisterium as was discussed today re: Donald Trump
Daniel McCarthy confirms what I have been telling you for six months now and that is that Jebediah Bush is going to “annihilate the competition” in the GOP “race” for Presidential nominee credentials.
WooHoo, now women in WI can only murder their children if they are 139 days old! I suppose any progress is laudable but in reality this is just as heinous a legislative act because it permits the atrocity to continue. This is the kind of moral cop-out that has allowed the culture of death to rule the hearts and minds of Americans.
MBD: There is nothing to be admired or promoted about Planned Parenthood’s ghastly murder of children then sale of their body parts, despite what liberals and culture of death proponents sadly argue. Only a sick and morally bankrupt civilization can justify such monsters.
Christopher Dawson was one of the most accomplished thinkers and writers of the late twentieth century, Brad Birzer explores the question of what drove Dawson to also become a very public, Catholic and Catholic Apologist?
Why are some priests DEFENDING Planned Parenthood and the obscene sale of body parts via their Gurney-Kill Butcher Shop? Maybe they shouldn’t be priests?
Imaginative Conservative: Most adults would probably agree with the statement that “I do NOT believe in fairy tales”. I might ask the question “why not”? The fairy tale of boys crying wolf is meant to chastise us against telling lies, isn’t it? The Myth of Icarus is meant to guard against the practicing the deadly sin of Pride isn’t it? No one in the modern age knew this and wrote of it like Chesterton and he inspired the century’s greatest myth-like works “Lord of the Rings” and the Lion and the Wardrobe” as Joseph Pearce reminds us today.
If you watch ONE VIDEO today, watch this one featuring a teary eyed and forceful Senator Lankford from OK, rail against the Planned Parenthood’s Gurney-Kill Butcher Shop
We must have zero tolerance for any vestiges of slavery including any symbol anyone ever used to promote it like flags and monuments cars with flags painted on their roofs. But it is perfectly fine for some of the same agitators to use their legislative influence to PROMOTE slavery, so long as it’s not in ‘Muricah, where the aggrieved can vote and finance campaigns, say in Malaysia.
Chris Ferrara mentioned this on the show this morning, the Lake Garda Statement that he signed while in the paradise of Italy. The statement reflects the growing frustration many feel over the state of our affairs. What I find striking about all this that our affairs in politics have given way to our affairs in the realm of the supernatural that informs our politics.
Has the pre-ordained and implemented scheme our Federal Overlords and elite-ruling-masters devised for us actually STUNTED the opportunities women might have had outside the rat-race they’ve been forced into? Gracie Olmstead thinks so and I bet Chesterton would agree.
Finally, someone other than me – Aaron D Wolf – makes the not-so-painfully obvious observation via the Planned Parenthood, Gurney-Kill Butcher Shop that we are walking among monsters who pass for human beings
Paul Pillar: The vacuous rhetoric of those promoting the “Iranian [Obama] deal is so bad, no deal would have been better” should be made to explain how their deal would have faired against the prospect that the Iranians are now subjected to inspections and regulations these war-hawks have been whining for all these years
