Prelates and Pederasts

Sixteen years ago, reporters at The Boston Globe conducted an extensive investigation of the sexual abuse of minors by priests in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston. Not long thereafter, reporters elsewhere detailed similar abuse in places like Los Angeles, Chicago, New Orleans, Philadelphia, and the like. The word used in the press to describe what had […]

Explaining the Left, Part III

The secular religion of Leftism has replaced Christianity and Judaism. One of the most important books of the 20th century — it remains a best-seller 59 years after it was first published — is Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl. Marx saw man’s primary drive as economic, and Freud saw it as sex. But Frankl believed […]

Ex-Nuncio Accuses Pope Francis of Failing to Act on McCarrick’s Abuse

In an extraordinary 11-page written testament, a former apostolic nuncio to the United States has accused several senior prelates of complicity in covering up Archbishop Theodore McCarrick’s allegations of sexual abuse, and has claimed that Pope Francis knew about sanctions imposed on then-Cardinal McCarrick by Pope Benedict XVI but chose to repeal them.

Tolerance is precisely what has allowed these problems to multiply for decades and persist up to today. As Fr. Thomas Berg recently explained, […]

POPE FRANCIS AND CAPITAL PUNISHMENT

In a move that should surprise no one, Pope Francis has once again appeared to contradict two millennia of clear and consistent scriptural and Catholic teaching. The Vatican has announced that the Catechism of the Catholic Church will be changed to declare the death penalty “inadmissible” given the “inviolability and dignity of the person” as […]

SABBATH DEIFICATION

Israel gathers at Sinai on the third day of the third month after leaving Egypt (Exod. 19:16). From the cloud, Yahweh speaks what the Bible calls the “Ten Words” (Exod. 34:28; Deut. 4:13). He has spoken ten words before. “And Elohim spoke” occurs ten times in the creation account. And the Lord has spoken on […]
