NJ Catholic High School Fires Teacher For Posting Catholic Doctrine On Facebook

It is a tenet of the Catholic faith that homosexuality is instrinsically disordered. It is also a tenet of the Catholic faith that same-sex “marriage” is a mirage. Alas, at Immaculata High School in Somerville, New Jersey, you can be Catholic and believe these truths, but you can’t post them on Facebook. Or mention them in a classroom. Patricia Jannuzzi, the Immaculata High School teacher who was forced to remove her Facebook page by the school after making anti-gay posts, has been put on administrative leave. The school notified alumni, parents and students in a letter today. “This episode has […]

Socialism And Communism Are Contrary To Christianity

Fr. Marcel Guarnizo is a friend of Ed Morrissey who gives a response refuting the popular myth that the Church’s “social justice” mission is compatible with Socialism and Communism. Rev. Marcel Guarnizo counters the belief that the ideas of socialist revolution and Communism have a place at the table with Christianity.  Many, even in the Catholic Church, believe that Christianity shares some ideals with the socialist revolution.  It seems to them that Socialism, Communism, and Christianity all help the poor. Father Guarnizo outlines and exposes the errors of Communism.  Father Marcel Guarnizo writes: “The difference between the two was captured well by a joke […]

Pope Benedict, The Gang of 8, and Social Justice

When R.S. McCain  emails you and invokes the name of God, you probably ought to listen.  And, since I’ve been trying to closer to the supreme being as of late, I had little choice but to comply.  As for the reasoning for invoking the creator, it seems that the Pope has weighed in on the immigration issue.  R.S. McCain had addressed the immigration concern, so get over to his site and read that part. In an update, he really knocked it out of the park. He hit on one topic that often infuriates me-social justice… The duty of Christian charity […]

Catholic Bishop Promises Civil Disobedience if ObamaCare Abortion Mandates Enforced

It appears that the Catholic Church is gearing up for a showdown against the Obama Administration, especially when it comes to the ObamaCare mandates concerning abortion.  Gateway Pundit has more… reported: Martin Luther King’s “Letter from the Birmingham Jail” (April 16, 1963) is one of our nation’s elegant testimonies to the political implications of our Declaration of Independence: “One may want to ask: ‘How can you advocate breaking some laws and obeying others?’ The answer lies in the fact that there are two types of laws: just and unjust. I would be the first to advocate obeying just laws. One […]

Let’s Save America

If Paul Revere were alive today, he wouldn’t be warning us that the redcoats are coming — he’d be telling us they’re already here.  And these days, it’s not the crimson coats that identify the enemy — it’s their black totalitarian hearts. One of this era’s night watchmen is Ulsterman’s White House Insider. WHI, apocryphal or not, has been accurately tolling the alarm bell for some time. Some excerpts from Ulsterman’s latest report: “We Got One Last Chance Here To Make It Right” […] WHI: … I’ll say it to you again and again – Obama ain’t no Democrat. Never was. Never has been. He controls the party…people who […]

Christianity and Social Justice, a False Comparison

There has been, in my opinion, a monstrous perversion of Christian teachings.  In order to promote Marxism, a variety of of Christian organizations and denominations have been infiltrated and influenced to promote an anti-Christian message- “social (in)justice.”   Many evangelical groups and the Catholic Church support it as well.   Just take a moment to let that thought percolate.  Would Jesus support Marxism?  Would he support a system that is openly resistant to any God but the state?  Mind you that social justice is nothing more than Marxism renamed, so I have a difficult time accepting that Jesus will support it. […]

Take This Religion and Shove It

I was in need of some spiritual guidance yesterday in mass. Somewhere along the way these past few months I’ve let grow within me some apparent childish mid-life crisis, and in recent weeks have been a public ass to people at work, friends I’ve known for more than a decade, members of my family, and people who visit my other blog. I prayed for peace and guidance and, most importantly, forgiveness, acknowledging to God that I need to do a lot more listening and a lot less talking. Imagine my shock when, listening, I heard the lector ask me, along […]
