On Being Catholic – Your Way

By Cindy Paslawski / February 13, 2021 /

The problem with the Catholic Bishops endorsing President Biden while Biden supports and endorses abortion is caused by the cafeteria Catholicism now generations old. A refusal to teach the faith to the past generations has led to a reluctance to choose the faith today, let alone follow it. The blind lead the blind in search of feelings and declare their truth as if it were the Catholic Faith.

MacLean’s Brings the Contraception Freak Show to Mainstream

By John B. Manos / January 21, 2018 /

The cover of the February 2018 Maclean’s magazine (a Canadian publication) features a smiling woman holding a young smiling boy over her head. If you did not read the text yet, it looks like fun. She looks happy. But, emblazoned across her face is a bold pink banner that reads “I wish I never had kids. There. I said…

The Immaculate Heart Prevents Modern Errors on the Sacred Heart

By John B. Manos / June 24, 2017 /

Notre Dame is still pushing the fantasyland of McBrien and Rahner’s process theology. But, this one thing about the Immaculate Heart of Mary prevents the delusional errors of making the Sacred Heart into a mere force of the universe that we must merge ourselves into. Rather, it is a real human heart that loves you.

2017: but “Post-truth” Began with Abortion, is Consequence of Hardon’s Neopaganism

By John B. Manos / January 8, 2017 /

Fantasyland is not just an insult anymore — it’s real. And people live there and force the rest of us there, too. When I was a kid, I remember getting burned by a childhood insult many times…. If I said, “I love carrots and peas”, then quickly someone else would say “oh yeah, then why don’t you marry…

The Marxist March Against Marriage and the Response Our Lady Asked For

By John B. Manos / June 30, 2015 /

A couple years ago, I posted one of the best images about marriage today and it came from the old St. Joseph Baltimore Catechism. Featuring both the worldly judge and the Eternal Judge rendering opinions of what was before them. The image shows a couple obtaining a no fault divorce, and a judge granting it to them. To…

Calling Jesus a Liar: Anglican Style (which is twenty years behind AmChurch fashion trends)

By John B. Manos / June 8, 2015 /

It was over twenty years ago, at a daily Mass in Cincinnati (the head of the AmChurch hydra), when I first heard someone try to pray the “Our Mother” prayer. They also liked to say the Suscipe with the fantasy option, ending it with the “her Church.” [that was the older english form at the time, so naturally it…

Pentecost and the Church of Tommorrow

By John B. Manos / May 24, 2015 /

One thing I notice that’s different today from when I was a kid is that there doesn’t seem to be anymore fiction geared towards tomorrow that isn’t dystopian. Sure, I was still a tyke when the movie Logan’s Run came out about a world in the future where people that hit thirty were euthanized, yet others ran…

Father Hardon: Stop Communion in the Hand Now!

By John B. Manos / May 19, 2015 /

  I often forget that the things that were common knowledge in the 90s are forgotten or ignored today. It becomes apparent when discussing communion in the hand, as I did the other day in the neopaganism article, or as I have in other contexts over the past few years, that people generally believe now that…

By John B. Manos / November 20, 2013 /

The news is reporting that Illinois Governor Pat Quinn intends to sign the so-called Gay Marriage Bill into state law today. As we reported here, Bishop Paprocki is ready to exorcise his diocese in reparation for this legislative stroll into fantasyland.

Mary’s Assumption Stands to Disprove Gnosticism: You aren’t Dragging yourself, or anyone else, to Heaven

By John B. Manos / August 15, 2013 /

Some time ago, and throughout the years, I’ve heard various people say, “I want to drag souls to Heaven.” I’m sure that in the cases where I’ve heard it, the person didn’t realize what they were saying. They can’t drag themselves, let alone anyone else, to Heaven! If we take that phrase literally then it…
