Mr. Potato Head Losing His Manhood … Or Not? by Al Perrotta

By Al Perrotta, The Stream – It’s not enough to jump on the Woke bandwagon with a gender neutral tater, Hasbro is going green too. The new ‘Potato Head” will be made of “plant-based plastic.”… So, in addition to ditching Mr. and Mrs., they’ve gone from a real plant to plastic to a plastic made of plants that takes how much fossil fuel to produce… We call that progress.

The Liturgical Year Reminds Us of What is Truly Important, by Louise Merrie

By Louise Merrie, Catholic Exchange – As Catholics, our lives follow the liturgical year: the Church’s calendar of seasons and holy days… The liturgical year reminds us of what is truly important. Sundays remind us that our first duty is to worship God and the greatest form of worship is the Mass. The seasons of Advent, Christmas, Lent, the Sacred Paschal Tridium, and Easter remind us of Jesus’ Incarnation, death, and Resurrection and His great love for us. …

Biden’s Equality Act is a Danger to Women’s and Conscience Rights, by Ryan Anderson

By Ryan Anderson, NY Post – President Biden has promised to unify the nation. But candidate Joe Biden also made campaign promises to the radical wing of his party that would widen our social divides. Guess which promises are being honored… Witness the so-called Equality Act, which candidate Biden vowed to make a priority and which is set to be voted on by the House this week. What’s the Equality Act? And who could be against equality? Don’t let the name fool you… the bill would act as a sword — to persecute those who don’t embrace newfangled gender ideologies.

The Equality Act Would ‘Potato Head’ All Americans, by Kylee Zempel

By Kylee Zempel, The Federalist – A much more important thing you might have missed on Thursday is that the Democrat-led House of Representatives is taking up a vote on the Equality Act, a nice and equitable-sounding piece of legislation that would effectively end legal sex distinctions as we know them and coerce traditional conservatives and Christians into violating their most deeply held religious beliefs. The bill, if it passes, will amend the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which made it illegal to discriminate on the basis of sex ….

China Betrays Its Deal with the Vatican, by Nina Shea

By Nina Shea, National Review – So far, the Vatican has not commented on China’s stunning betrayal… “China’s state-run Catholic Church and bishops’ conference will select, approve, and ordain episcopal candidates — with no mention of the Vatican’s involvement in the process.”… Significantly, the new rules require the clergy to “adhere to the principle of independent and self-administered religion in China.”

By Matt Hadro, EWTN News – When pressed by Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., on the matter of minors being allowed to transition genders, (biological male Dr. Rachel Levine, President Biden’s nominee for assistant secretary HHS) would not directly answer his questions… “Do you support the government intervening to override the parent’s consent to give a child puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and/or amputation surgery of breasts and genitalia?”

Opinion: Why Catholics Should Care About Bitcoin, by Eric Sammons

By Eric Sammons, Crisis Magazine – But this is Crisis Magazine, not CryptoCrisis Magazine, so why should a Catholic in particular care about Bitcoin? After all, Bitcoin was originally made popular by anarchists and drug-dealers, and lately it’s become a plaything of tech titans like Elon Musk—not exactly the typical Mass-going Catholic crowd. Yet I would argue that Bitcoin—or more precisely, the underlying “blockchain” technology that powers it—might very well be the tool that helps Catholics maintain the faith and the Church spread the Gospel in the dark times we seem to be entering.

Prepare to Be Cancelled, by Phil Lawler

By Phil Lawler, Catholic Culture – The ominous trend toward censorship, in the news and especially in the social media, is now unmistakably clear. At this point the question is when—not whether—Christian voices will be silenced… Unless, of course, we can do something to reverse the trend.
In the digital era, information is king. If you control access to information—and can choke off access to information that you dislike—you can consolidate rule of the world.

From Transgender to Transhuman: The Expanding Culture of Death, by Anne Hendershott

By Anne Hendershott, Catholic World Report – Most faithful Catholics have viewed the burgeoning transgender industry as encouraging a misguided belief that individuals—including even pre-school children—can change their God-given identity. However, the truth is that this rejection of human nature and natural law has opened not only the door to gender construction, it has also opened an even darker door to an emerging multi-billion dollar transhuman industry.

Fr. Raymond J. de Souza: Cardinal Robert Sarah, an Authentic Spiritual Guide

Father Raymond J. de Souza, EWTN News – At age 75 and in evident good health, Cardinal Robert Sarah likely has many fruitful years ahead of him, but his retirement as prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments concludes one of the most remarkable series of assignments of any prelate in the Church… Cardinal Sarah, ordained in 1969, belongs to the first-generation fruit of early missionary activity in Africa.
