Msgr. Charles Pope: Not Peace But the Sword

Thus, in this great and cosmic battle, the Lord cannot and will not tolerate a false peace based on compromise or an accepting coexistence. He has come to wield a sword, to divide. Many moderns do not like it, but Scripture is clear: there are wheat and tares, sheep and goats, those on the Lord’s right and those on His left, the just and wicked, the lowly and the proud, the narrow road to salvation and the wide road to damnation.

Twitter Alternative Parler Soars as Conservatives Flock to New Social Network, by Calvin Freiburger

By Calvin Freiburger, LifeSiteNews – Founded by John Matze and Jared Thomson, Parler bills itself as a “non-biased free speech driven entity that “accepts your right to express your thoughts, opinions and ideals online.” Whereas Twitter and Facebook have steadily adopted and expanded roles as adjudicators of “productive” versus “hateful” or “misleading” speech, Parler says it “aims to empower users to control their social experience. Users can be responsible to engage content as they see fit.”

Fr. Dwight Longenecker: Dogma Libertates. Relativism Enslaves… Here’s Why.

By Fr. Dwight Longenecker – What is an example of a modern ideology? Feminism. Homosexualism. Environmentalism. Anti-racism. Fundamentalism. Neo-Puritanism. Nationalism. Globalism. Fascism. Communism. Socialism….You name it. It doesn’t matter whether they are “right” or “left”. They are all ideologies–world views and philosophies that are driven by a single idea–a lens through which everything else is viewed and a false god before whom all must bow.

By Steven Ertelt, LifeNews – Democrats on the House Appropriators Committee yesterday passed a bill that would reverse a pro-life order President Donald Trump issued on his first week in office that defunds International Planned Parenthood.

The Sower & the Seed, by Marcellino D’Ambrosio

By Marcellino D’Ambrosio, Ph.D., Catholic Exchange – In speaking to us as seed, Jesus is saying, “Be careful. If you don’t make the effort to get thoroughly rooted in your Catholic faith, you just might not make it. If do you manage to survive, you might produce absolutely nothing. But you are called to bear much fruit (Jn 15), to yield a hundredfold, to be a saint, to leave a mark on the lives of many that will last forever. Don’t settle for anything less!”

By Ines A. Murzaku, The Catholic Thing – What is the history behind Hagia Sophia?… For 900 years, Hagia Sophia was the center of the Byzantine Empire: the seat of the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople; the place where ecumenical councils were convened and emperors were crowned, and night vigils and majestic processions were held until the fall of Constantinople to the Ottomans on May 29, 1453.

Liberalism Is a Sin, by Chilton Williamson, Jr.

By Chilton Williamson, Jr., Crisis Magazine – Further, liberalism is sinful in itself—sinful in its philosophical assumptions, its moral and political doctrines, and its anti-clerical history, as Felix Sard y Salvany, a Spanish priest in the late 19th century, demonstrated in El Liberalismo es pecato (Liberalism Is a Sin). Thus, a priest who is a liberal is a heretic as well, and a priest who sets his loyalty to the religion of liberalism above his loyalty to the Catholic faith is a traitor.

The Bible Teaches That Other “Gods” are Imaginary, by Dave Armstrong

By Dave Armstrong, EWTN News – Some misguided folks actually claim that the Old Testament, and even the New Testament, taught “henotheism” — which is a form of polytheism holding that one God only is worshiped, but the existence of other gods is acknowledged. This is untrue. Monotheism (one God and one God only) is crystal clear throughout the Bible: Exodus 8:10 (RSV). . . there is no one like the LORD our God. …

Is the White Race the ‘Lamb That Was Slain’? Part II, by John Zmirak

By John Zmirak, a senior editor at The Stream – A few days back I had a startling realization. I saw with sudden clarity why “Woke” white people crowd behind movements that cancel and blame them. Why they seem eager to saddle themselves and their children with inexpiable guilt for nebulous, unproven crimes. Why privileged whites prove much less skeptical of the Marxist cult Black Lives Matter than most black Americans seem to.

By Brad Mattes, LifeNews – Margaret Sanger, opened the first birth control clinic in America, and then founded the American Birth Control League, which is now called Planned Parenthood… Planned Parenthood’s beginnings were steeped in eugenics and racism, and it continues today… history shows that Sanger believed nothing of the sort.
