Television Interview...

On August 28, 2013 I was asked to do an interview with Michael Voris on ChurchMilitant.TV. The interview was live and broadcasted on the Internet. Here is the clip of my segment. Enjoy!

Why Are People Leaving The Catholic Church ???

I know I've been beating this topic like an old rug, but I simply will not stop talking about this until I see evidence that people are listening.  In a previous article, I shared a video of a regular Ordinary Form mass in Macon Georgia, which serves as a good example of something going right in the Church today. It's also a good example of a place where the Catholic Church is thriving deep within the Protestant heartland of the Bible Belt.  There is a growing number of such examples, and the formula is always the same.  This involves a heavy emphasis on traditional Roman Catholic doctrine and liturgy!  That's right, the more traditional and old fashioned the Church, the more young people flock to it.

Yes, the exact opposite of what the 1970s hippy generation told us has turned out to be true.  The generation of the 1970s told the Catholic Church to "modernise" and "get with the times," so as to bring more young people into the Church.  The Catholic Ch…

Book Release -- Catholicism For Protestants

Why Do Catholic Bibles Have More Books?

We Catholics are known to have more books in our Bibles than Protestants, and there is a very good reason for this.  I'll explain below.  First, it's important to note that the New Testament of the Bible is exactly the same between Catholics and Protestants.  There is no difference at all.  They both consist of exactly twenty-seven (27) books, Matthew through Revelation, with no distinction whatsoever.  What differs between Catholics and Protestants is the Old Testament.  We Catholics have forty-six books in our Old Testament (46), while Protestants have only thirty-nine (39).  Protestants also have shorter versions of the books of Daniel and Esther.  The difference between the Catholic and Protestant Bibles specifically centres around the Old Testament and the Old Testament alone.  The seven additional books in question are...
