A Very Bad Week for Planned Parenthood

The abortion company fires its CEOs as sloppily as it delivers “healthcare.” Before that, the Trump Administration successfully cut some of Planned Parenthood’s federal funding, which may have precipitated the decapitation of its management team. And, today, Planned Parenthood’s hand-picked judge tentatively ruled in complete favor with the journalist the company is suing. Aborting Dr. Wen On Wednesday, Planned Parenthood clumsily fired Dr. Leana Wen as its chief executive. I guess you could call it a late-term firing, since Dr.

Easter and the Mueller Report

I write this on Easter Sunday, 2019, and the secular world, particularly the anti-Christian secular world, is losing its mind again. This time, the left’s insanity arises from the final report of the special investigator, Robert Mueller, into alleged crimes committed by the presidential campaign of Donald Trump in 2015 and 2016. Amazingly, what we are seeing in the reaction to that Mueller report was seen by an early father of the Church, St.

My last reason for loving the Latin Mass (which I failed to list in that blog post) seems important: how American Catholicism has changed since the inception of the new mass in about 1970. So I turned to Georgetown University’s Center for Applied Research in the Apostalate for the numbers.

Donald Trump’s triumph in the 2016 election drove Chelsea Handler into a depraved descent. Weed and depression. Psychiatrists. Broken. Not because of anything that happened to her. She didn’t lose her home. No one close to her died because of the election. Chelsea Handler lost her mind because reality violated her expectations.

I want to take over the world and leave everybody alone –Libertarian Motto Rex Sinquefield graduated from Bishop DuBourg High School and he’s supposedly something of a libertarian. That’s about all we have in common. Rex left St. Louis and became a billionaire by inventing stock market indexing or something.

12 Reasons I Love Latin Mass

Lately, I’ve been going to Latin Mass instead of the new mass. Latin Mass feels like home to me. It feels like a call to holiness. Every detail of the Latin Mass has meaning, not just to me, but to everyone who’s studied scripture. The words, the gestures, the artifacts like the communion rail all have deep meaning. I don’t think the new mass is heretical; I just don’t think it lifts us up toward God.
