All the victims at the gay nightclub who were murdered over the weekend need our prayers. Fifty people, 50-plus souls were on the scene, and the very next moment, they were standing before the judgment seat of Almighty God — as we all will be one day. Life can seem so certain one moment and over the next, in a twinkling of an eye. We must always be prepared to die.
The murders bring about a very interesting point of a larger discussion. The liberal alliance has brought various factions together, with one common goal: to end Catholic morality’s influence on Western civilization.
There are indeed some strange pairings in this liberal alliance: homosexualists, the Democratic Party, the mainstream media and Islam. Whatever differences Islam and liberals have, they have been willing to overlook them to join forces against the common enemy of Christianity, specifically Catholicism.
So, for example, from ISIS and the Islamic world you hear threats against Rome — loud threats, so loud that Italian army soldiers now stand at the ready fully armed with machine guns in very plain sight around the boundaries of Vatican City. And you hear from various gay groups that the Catholic Church hates gays — that we are homophobic, that we are a threat, that we need to have our non-profit status revoked, that we need to be monitored and so forth.

If we refuse to be ruled by God and his laws, then God will allow us to be ruled by tyrants.
It is very difficult not to think about the evil in the world today. My wife Chris and I have spent the better part of the last 30 years talking about the evils of abortion. 9/11 bought a new form of terrorism into all of our lives. Often when I write of abortion, promiscuity, apathy, and the selfishness of the world I sometimes feel like the little brother who is pointing a finger at a sibling and crying out what he or she is doing wrong. I’ve even been told that I’m good at pointing out the problem, followed by “how about giving us some solutions.” In this article, once again, I will not be able to offer any solutions, but thanks to a recent homily by Pastor Timothy Barr we might have a better sense of direction.

ProLifeCorner- A refugee camp in the Mideast- Sadly we are aware of the persecution of the Christians in Iraq and all throughout the Mideast. This persecution has gone on for many years, but unfortunately it appears that it will surpass the persecution of the Jews in the late 30s and early 40s. It truly is a Christian Holocaust. There was a time when we had a decent government that they would rally forces, send in troops, and stop the slaughter of innocent people. It is time that not only our government, but the governments of the rest of the free world take action and stop the slaughter of God’s holy innocents. Below you will see a video of Myriam, a young Christian girl who truly has Christ living within her. Myriam thanks God and teaches the world a lesson of forgiveness after surviving persecution by ISIS. She is singing a song of gratitude to God for His divine protection. Continue reading →
