Sexy is No Substitute for Class

"More souls go to Hell because of sins of the flesh than for any other reason... Certain fashions will be introduced that will offend Our Lord very much... Woe to women lacking in modesty."  -- Our Lady of Fatima, Blessed Jacinta Marto As I type this entry, we are just a couple weeks away from the 2016 presidential election in the United States. Virtually all public conversation now revolves around that. However, I want to take us away from that for a moment and move into bigger topics. In a previous essay I discussed strategies Catholic families could take to weather the coming storm that is about to befall us in the United States. In that essay I mentioned the eventual re-evangelisation of North America, and rebuilding of Christendom, which will inevitably follow the collapse of modern Western Civilisation. As I mentioned, the coming storm that will persecute Catholics (and other Christians) is unavoidable, regardless of who wins the American presidential election in 2016.…

The Coming Storm and How to Prepare

A storm is approaching. We've been watching it build on the horizon for decades, and now it's here. The first sprinkles of rain have already hit us, and with the wind now whipping up, we know the torrent to follow cannot be far away. Flashes of lightning and claps of thunder now surround us.

I'm speaking of the political, social and economic storm that is soon to hit the Catholic Church in the United States.

While a lot of hope is riding on this 2016 presidential election, I am here to tell you that no matter who wins, the storm is still going to hit us.

If Donald Trump wins the presidency, some of the ill effects of this storm can be postponed. The Church will be given some more precious time to prepare, perhaps four to eight years at the most, but the storm will still come. I want to make this perfectly clear so ther…

Why a Catholic Democrat Votes for Trump

People who have known me for a long time have always known I am Pro-Life. In fact, they've always known me to support the traditional family too, opposing "same-sex marriage" and any other oxymoron concerning the word "marriage." So naturally, most people who know me think I'm a Republican. They just assume it. After all, the only Americans who think like that are Republicans. Right?

I suppose living in the Bible Belt of the United States doesn't help much. Here, the stereotypical Pro-Lifer is usually a right-wing Republican Baptist. So when I'm standing in a life-chain, or helping out at a crisis pregnancy centre, I'm usually surrounded by Baptist Republicans. I suppose I couldn't fault anyone for assuming I'm a Republican too. I suppose I couldn't fault anyone for assuming I'm a Baptist as well.

Here's the truth though. Both my parents were Democrats. My father was a Lutheran Democrat, and my mother was a Baptist Democrat.…
