Gallup results indicate that more homosexuals are single than before the Supreme Court ruling in 2015.
Facts and real data doesn’t lie. People lie for all kinds of personal reasons but data doesn’t. The fact is that limited participation in gay marriage isn’t about its rejection in our culture it’s that many don’t care about getting married. You’ve seen children demand something to then simply walk away from it when you give it to them. It’s the same story. You might say it’s just about the sex and destroying an institution that rejects their appetites.

In his first opportunity to preach after receiving the cardinals’ request for an audience, the Pope warned against resisting the Holy Spirit and fearing “novelties of the Church.”
I have read a number of the Pope’s homilies of late and I must admit that they generally leave me confused about what he’s trying to say and how he is using Scripture.
This homily is no different. His references to Peter really don’t coincide with the text nor the context of the Scripture he’s referring to. In fact, his quoting of St Vincent seems to contradict his point if you read the quote thoughtfully.
I would suggest if he is trying to make a point to the dubia Cardinal’s that he simply meet with them instead of continuing his practice of confusion and shadowed attempts at reform.
He has lost the point of St Vincent which is clearly identified by Cardinal Newman that the Holy Spirit isn’t schizophrenic. He doesn’t contradict himself. Reform led by the Holy Spirit will never deny past truth. It is a continuity and not a rupture but it seems the Pope can’t go talk to the Pope Emeritus who wrote about this topic even though he lives near him.

With each passing week the pace quickens. The revolutionaries continue to grow more emboldened.
As you might follow the money to apprehend the culprit you can also follow the Cardinals to find the reformers. The Pope has installed and empowered the left and what we see in the secular culture is playing out in our Church. Don’t be blind to the obvious.

Increasing confusion over the apostolic exhortation that shook the Catholic world: one nation is permitted to believe one thing and another the opposite.
Silence and disunity is the worst form of leadership. It is in fact an abdication of the role of the Pope and a crisis for the Church. We are not a denomination run by pastors with independent authority establishing rules through a democratic process under the false guise of the purported guidance of the Holy Spirit. We don’t need a legion of individual answer. We need the truth. Division is in the air and our prelates are feasting on it.

June 24, 2017 Sweden is being torn to pieces by Muslim immigrants and refugees. Law enforcement is crying out for help, and it is only a question of time before the country will be in a state of civil war.
One could say you are seeing the results of unchecked liberalism. The lion of radicalism is feasting. Who would have thought a country that accepted everyone and everything would be thrown into civil war by the very Muslim immigrants they were trying to help.
Isnt this a case study that shows the inherent character of Islam? An ulta liberal country isn’t what made theses muslims radical. Their faith did and its tearing the country apart. How about allowing shariah law in the US?

Archbishop Charles Chaput wrote that ‘Humanae Vitae has remained a testimony to the truth.’
It’s not often we hear our prelates defending Church teaching and authoritatively declaring the truth within their diocese but when it does happen we should support and applaud them. We need their example to spread.

It may seem an uncomfortable topic today for many bishops to address but we have a few stout hearted bishops that will teach the objective truth of the Church in regards to those living in mortal sin. This is not a mean hearted response from God but the consequence of the act of someone willfully sinning with eyes wide open.

The supervolcano at Yellowstone National Park has been hit with more than 400 earthquakes since June 12. Researchers say it’s nothing to be alarmed about, though.

Hell—St. Teresa of Avila told her nuns to mentally visit the inferno during life so they would not be imprisoned in it after death. St. John Vianney sighed because the saints, who were so pure, cultivated holy fear while “we, who so often offend the good God—we have no fears.”
I had often thought about Heaven and Gods Kingdom being in a process of spiritually becoming through the works of Christ in his Church but hadn’t considered that Satan wants this as well in bring Hell present on Earth.

As we’ve seen non-denominational churches and their desire to distance themselves from and demonize religion but this very act establishes the existence of a religion (the unique expression of their faith) within their ranks. Think of Crossroads or the Vineyard without coffee or wifi. It has become part of how they express their faith.
This is the same with the left shouting about legalism. They have become legalistic in their determinations and misunderstanding of moral truth labeling it as rigid legalism.

The April 25 missive was hand-delivered to the Pope on May 6 but has received no response.
The next and appropriate step has been taken by the dubia Cardinals, a request for an audience with the Pope. It seems there are three likely outcomes: the Pope will not respond which will prompt the Cardinals to draft a correction to Amoris Laetitia; the Pope meets with them and demands silence and obedience; or the Pope meets with them and a declarative statement on AL is agreed to.
Likely any meeting that leads to the silencing of the Cardinals will place the Pope in a very bad light. A correction by the Pope is extremely unlikely after his many approvals of those seeking a reform. I assume silence from the Pope will be the ongoing situation forcing the Cardinals to appear as the bad guys attacking the Pope, which won’t lead to any real change anyway since their correction will not be approved by the Vatican. The result in that situation is a confirmation of reform without continuity = rupture. Exactly what the Pope Emeritus warned us about.

Not only was the Cincinnati public library forced to pay $250,000 for the mutilation surgery with the support of one of our Cincinnati council members but now there will be LGBT content, events, employee training, and bathrooms all based on Obamacare. Now men can go into the women’s bathrooms at the library.
Its time to boycott the library. If books aren’t rented the library will begin shutting down. We need to vote with our feet, our pocketbook, and our support against businesses that push the LGBT lifestyle on their customers.
Find your voice.

Polish and Belgian bishops have become the latest to issue statements on Communion for civilly remarried divorcees, and both contradict the other.
Bishops are not to be independent innovators but by their ordination to be faithful to the Apostles teaching by receiving, protecting, and faithfully passing on what they received. Continuity and not rupture is the key defining characteristic of a bishop. Rupture and confusion is the hermeneutic of the enemy.
Collegiality is not a process of subjective individuality as if they are a gaggle of little princes but that which defines the bishops authority through unity. Bishops in a sense are only bishops when they teach in unity with each other. What else is the lesson of the first council of Jerusalem. Didn’t St Paul validate what he was teaching with the Apostles at Jerusalem so that he wasn’t teaching in vain? (Gal 2:2)
Where is the clear declaration of the council of Jerusalem? Where is the clarifying voice of James found in the letter sent back to the gentiles in the Church of Antioch (Acts 15). Silence and self direction doesn’t represent the Apostolic succession.
