Mandeville, LA – Mike Church‘s daily Pile of Prep, Welcome to mikechurch.com 2015 Edition. What happens when secular commentators try and tackle the moral issues of our shocking lack of modesty? You get an petulant overdose of moral relativism with the “Right” occupying the same ground as the “Libertarian” who does not realize he occupies the ground of the neophyte Communist. Why does this get rubber stamped as acceptable by “conservatives” who only haggle over the $$$ amounts? Read along with Mike’s historical viewpoint to help make sense of it all plus other [r]epublican stories used to perform the Mike Church Show on Sirius/XM Patriot channel 125.“My acceptance of the universe is not optimism, it is more like patriotism. It is a matter of primary loyalty. The world is not a lodging-house at Brighton, which we are to leave because it is miserable. It is the fortress of our family, with the flag flying on the turret, and the more miserable it is the less we should leave it. The point is not that this world is too sad to love or too glad not to love; the point is that when you do love a thing, its gladness is a reason for loving it, and its sadness a reason for loving it more. All optimistic thoughts about England and all pessimistic thoughts about her are alike reasons for the English patriot. Similarly, optimism and pessimism are alike arguments for the cosmic patriot.” – G.K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy
Do you have a haz-mat suit, endless supply of latex gloves, surgical masks and an aversion to certain vaccines, making you a dreaded “no-vaxx”!? Well, the “backlash” being felt by Senator Rand Paul and NJ Governor Chris Christie for suggesting that in America, you know, the land where you can “choose” all the illicit, extra-marital sex you want, conceive children you have no intention to bear and them ACTUALLY have them killed (aborted) you will become a public pariah IF you place one of the same pro-choicers darling children in harms way by not getting vaccinated. <oral relativism anyone?
If you are wondering whether there is a morally valid, Pro-Life reason to oppose vaccinations in some cases there most certainly is. As then Holy Father Benedict XVI instructed a woman back in 2005 on the evil that surrounds the MMR vaccine and what to do about it.
Reason # 1,776 why I am NOT a Libertarian. Witness the futility of secular “conservatism” (Kevin Williamson) trying to comment meaningfully on this secular society’s shocking rejection of modesty and humility via the “career” of “Belle Knox”. If I were to try and provide some fraternal correction for either of the parties embroiled in this literary debacle it would be to consider that the steep slide to mortal sin [death of the soul] is greased with Pride and immodesty while the rarely traveled, grown over path to Humility is fertilized with the waters of modesty.
What exactly does the Magisterium say about vaccines and when you can and cannot or might and must use them? Pope Bendict explained this back in 2005
Followup to yesterday’s post of James Madison’s veto of a “public works” bill in 1817. President Monroe vetoed nearly identical legislation 6 years later and explained his reasons similarly
DeceptiCONNED Comrade: Has the War-Hawk Caucus considered what horrors of global proportion might occur IF Putin turns out to be the madman, megalomaniac war monger they make him out to be?
I continue to be fascinated by the emerging trend of the turn away from our automobile culture and others are catching on too as the Atlantic’s CityLab picks up on the story: The age of the automobile comes to smartphone induced close
The latest “crisis” the Leviathan State is being implored to act upon (by “conservative” Rod Dreher) is the curious rise of the “anti-vaxxers”, parents who do not immunize their kids against disease like Measles and Polio. The misunderstanding on theology at work here, like most of the falsities brought on by the continuing revolt against The Faith. A Christian is obliged to avoid vaccines that have been made with the cells of aborted babies or other unethical procedures. Does Mr. Dreher know that ALL the Measles and Rubella vaccines are made from the carcasses of aborted babies? The fact that drug companies are making millions on these vaccines adds to the sickness of the culture of death: death pays.
DeceptiCONNED: All Ukraine is saying – to U.S. war-hawks, is Give Peace a Chance. What Ukraine needs is more peace and less John McCain, and the usual DeceptiCON suspects. Buchanan “America has never had a vital interest in Crimea or the Donbass worth risking a military clash with Russia. And we do not have the military ability to intervene and drive out the Russian army, unless we are prepared for a larger war and the potential devastation of the Ukraine.”
Nationwide Insurance fields thousands of armchair AdMen via “social media” over their “Dead Kid” ad that aired during the SuperBowl. Nationwide says it wants to start a conversation about childhood accidents leading to death. I agree, so why don’t we have a conversation about how to better prevent all those “unwanted pregnancies” that lead to the death of soon to be born children?
Are you ready for 3 Parent Babies? That’s right, the mad scientists from the UK NIH have concocted a process where unwanted DNA can be removed from a woman’s egg and replaced by preferable DNA from another mother.
How bad were the Super Bowl ads that regaled a now reported 114 MILLION who consumed yet another celebration of all the rot we have become
Can conservatism be relayed to the masses by an allegory involving forest creatures? Well, read this Imaginative Conservative essay and decide for yourself
President Obama proposes $478 BILLION in road/bridges etc. “public works projects” which will be “opposed” by Republicans, not because it is just another in a 140 year continuation of unconstitutional abuse of power by Congress as was explained eloquently by President Madison in his veto of Henry Clay’s “Bonus Bill”
DeceptiCONNED: Now that Mitt Romney is out of 2016 “race” Jeb Bush emerges as the coronated “front runner” for GOP nomination
The Superbowl is in the record books and there will be another bone next year, unfortunately there will also be another State of the Union
Mike Huckabee affirms what should be obvious to all but apparently requires ad campaigns: Christians should have the “right” to oppose “gay marriage”
NEWSFLASH: There actually IS a group called “Democrats for Life” (as in pro-LIFE), who knew!?
Dear Leader has the American Sheople on his side if he wants to avoid having Bibi Netenyahu, John Beohner and the War Caucus pull him into a war with the Iranians.
Memo to the LDS: If you think making “deals” with the pushers of radical homosexuality will win you their loyalty or even a 1 day “ok, you’re not a bigot” pass, think again. Like the Terminator, their boss, Beazelbub, “…doesn’t sleep, doesn’t feel pity or remorse…and absolutely will not stop EVER, until your career is dead.”
Spyin’ Eyes: Did you know that the goons at the DEA have figured out how to monitor and track the movement of nearly every car in the U.S.!? Yeah, and of course, this is going to “like, you know, like, win the drug war, man”. Sure it is, man, just ask Nancy Reagan.
Jack Trotter asks whether The Culture That Produced Hump Day Camel Worth Saving? [emphasis mine-MC] Citing the work of Charles Murray, interviewed by Mike Church on this very subject here, Trotter concludes “… it is questionable whether the size and diversity of present-day America, without massive authoritarian intervention, would allow the formation of such a culture, and especially any attempt to restore a Christian moral order.”
Notice a trend? The Clarion Call to Christians to put their Faith BEFORE their politics is getting louder and can now be seen over a growing number of media outlets and on the hearts and minds of the Church Militant. Nomocracy in Politics has a straightforward take on this: “In sum, Pera contends that, unless westerners start to (re)consider themselves Christians in terms of culture if not creed, their societies will quickly cease to be liberal, united, or moral. ”
The definition of the term “conservative” continues to be assaulted by Republicans with “far right” members of the U.S. House forming the “Freedom Caucus.” This makes little sense from the conservative point of view as the act of conserving things, tradition, institutions & co. requires real work, scholarship, composition, oratory and actual construction and maintenance, what is “free” about that?

The heroic work of “Awed” a mother/blogger who has penned a piece encouraging Christians to NOT say the Pledge of allegiance. She is in good company here as I have encouraged ALL Americans to refrain from loyalty oaths to secular institutions including the Pledge of Allegiance
“Social media” was created to facilitate communication because we apparently weren’t talking enough and not nearly enough famous people were spending long nights chained to keyboards to apologize to those offended by use of terms like “colored people” which is apparently the new “n-word”, just ask Benedict Cumberbatch
The pornography masquerading as popular music has no greater performer than Beyonce, I fully explained this last year over the course of a few days in May. Now Mike Huckabee is being criticized for doing far less by the hosts of The View who proclaim her as THE role model for our daughters. Yo

My recurring subject of Americans being social engineered into hurtling metal boxes, cars, so we can use the fleet of cars we must maintain to maintain our incomes and multiple flat-panel TVs, is gaining traction as researchers discover that “peak car” was reached back in 1996 and the decline in driving continues
Common Core is succumbing to populism and may be the first issue that the sheople have been able to derail that was conceived by our elite, ruling masters
BEING PRO-LIFE ISN’T JUST ABOUT ABORTION – The culture of death has made acceptable the ghastly practice of organ harvesting by changing the definition of death and more specifically “brain death”. If that article doesn’t make you squirm, then this one will and will begin your journey to understanding just how possessed of Death our society is. (N.B. These articles are from the New England Journal of Medicine)
Really!? The oldest idea under the political sun, the tax increase, promises to make the already perfunctory SOTU, a “blast from the past”, gee, what do you do for the encore? Call for “increased funding of education”?
Are we all or better yet were we all Donald Sterling? (free speech is free speech, right?)
AUDIO: Fascinating lecture series challenging Joseph Pearce’s (a guest of the Mike Church Show) view that The Lord of The Rings IS Catholic literatureI think it is safe to say that Patrick J Buchanan has had it with the GOP war machine and their growing litany of outright lies used to justify the military expansion and muscle flexing across the globe, this time over Russai’s ALLEGED INVASION of George and Ukraine.
