Feminism Destroys Character

April 18, 2015

DANIEL writes:

What is a man to do about modern women? I am a man in my mid-twenties that merely wants to have a family and a good wife. I have success with women but the more successful I am the more hopeless a marriage relationship seems to be. Women garner too much power from their sexuality to be chaste and they tend to lie about or downplay their sexual pasts. Social media sites spoil them from a young age, making it even more difficult to keep a woman’s interest without being disgusting. Beyond this, there seems to be no social limitations on women for even their own good–they tend to want to jump from one man to the next and “have fun.” Cheating on boyfriends, husbands and fiancés is routine.

Husbands Come Before Children

April 18, 2015

THE feminist work ethic and the willful destruction of the one-income family often leaves little time for women to cultivate their marriages. They should always put their relationships with their husbands above those with their children, but that is too often not the case.


Rape and Abortion

April 16, 2015

IT’S AMAZING how few politicians will challenge the claims of feminism. Too much of their money comes from the feminist establishment and they also face the solid wall of the feminist press. Those are explanations as to why they so seldom appeal to ordinary women. But cowardice is obviously a factor too. Or perhaps you just can’t possibly advance into the higher ranks of the political world anymore with a grain of common sense left.

Take the libertarian candidate for president, Rand Paul. He has avoided answering the loathsome Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s most aggressive challenges to him on abortion. Read More »


Bergoglio Ends Crackdown on Novus Nuns

April 16, 2015



THE Washington Post reports that Vatican II Church has “unexpectedly” put an end to intense scrutiny of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious, the heavily political umbrella group that represents the ever-diminishing cohort of radicalized American nuns.

[O]n Thursday, leaders of the umbrella organization and the Vatican officials in charge of the overhaul released statements of mutual respect, and the sisters met in Rome for nearly an hour with Pope Francis. The Vatican released a photo of the nuns sitting across a table from a warmly smiling Francis.

This is no surprise. The women’s religious organization promotes feminism, Marxism-tinged social work and Buddhist-style spirituality, which are all up Bergoglio’s alley. Last year, it honored Sister Elizabeth Johnson, a Fordham University “theologian” whose error-studded writings were even condemned by Church modernists.


The more masculine and undignified nuns have become, the less they have attracted newcomers. Since 1970, the number of women religious in the U.S. has declined from roughly 160,000 to less than 50,000.

This non-Catholic bastion of egalitarianism is dying a slow death and Bergoglian mercy cannot save it.


More Federal Oppression

April 16, 2015


The unholy alliance of the libertine Left with Islam is at it again.  Two U.S. Representatives of the Democratic variety — but no doubt they will find Republicans to agree with them — plan to introduce in the House of Representatives the Federal LGBT Resolution Opposing Discrimination to suppress state religious freedom protection acts of the sort recently abandoned by chicken-livered “Christian” Republican governors in Indiana and Arkansas.   Read More »

Consider Alabama

April 15, 2015

SARAH S. writes:

As the wife of a police officer, I understandably take exception to the harsh criticism of police expressed by some of your readers. My husband is an excellent shot and very calm under pressure. The chief of his department (of about 100 officers) is a sharp guy who keeps a pretty tight rein on the department’s activities. He’s not keen on his officers or investigators arresting people when a warning will suffice, which is most of the time. But then again this isn’t Chicago. The state of things up there sounds pretty alarming, doesn’t it?

And so I would like to invite you all down to the great state of Alabama. We are approximately 40 years behind the times and the cost of living is low. We don’t support sodomy and the police in our state are not unionized, as unions are generally frowned upon here. I could go on about the food and the climate, but just give it some thought… We would love to have you! Read More »


The Coming Federal Marriage Fiat

April 15, 2015

THE U.S. SUPREME COURT will very likely rule in June that the preposterous invention known as “gay marriage” must be recognized in all states, even states that have laws against it. The court is hearing arguments in the matter this month. If the highest court were to rule that all people must declare the earth is flat, and must act as if the earth is flat, it would be no more absurd. There is no such thing as “gay marriage.” There never will be any such thing as “gay marriage.” It doesn’t exist no matter how many lawyers say it does or how many people act as if it does or how many newspapers produce maudlin stories of loving “couples,” whose existence would not be valid without phony marriage certificates and mock weddings.

The U.S. Constitution has been virtually torn to shreds. We can expect the further unraveling of civil rights in the years ahead if the Supreme Court rules as is likely. All those people who ignorantly asked, “What difference does it make?” are going to find out and it’s not going to be pretty. Read More »


Jared Taylor on the Slager Case

April 14, 2015

AT American Renaissance, Jared Taylor has a commendable analysis of the Michael Slager shooting. He writes:

I give police the benefit of the doubt. They have one of the hardest jobs in America. They may have to make a split-second decision, at any moment, that could determine whether they live or die. Sometimes it’s kill or be killed, and you can’t expect them to get it right every time.

Michael Slager clearly got it wrong. There’s no evidence race had anything to do with it, but in today’s climate, race has everything to do with it. Mr. Slager is charged with murder, and if there’s a trial we’ll learn all there is to know about whether he’s a “racist.” Read More »


The Overlooked Job Disparity

April 13, 2015


MARK PERRY writes here:

Every year the National Committee on Pay Equity (NCPE) publicizes its “Equal Pay Day” to bring public attention to what it claims is a 23% gender pay gap driven primarily by discrimination against women in the workplace. “Equal Pay Day” this year falls on April 14, and allegedly represents how far into 2015 the average woman has to continue working to earn the same income that the average man earned last year for doing the exact same job.   Inspired by Equal Pay Day, I introduced “Equal Occupational Fatality Day” in 2010 to bring public attention to the huge gender disparity in work-related deaths every year in the United States. “Equal Occupational Fatality Day” tells us how many years and days into the future that women are able to work before they would experience the same number of occupational fatalities that occurred in the previous year for men.

Iowa Wrestling Champ Becomes Instant Celebrity

April 13, 2015

COLE FOX, a sadly-confused 18-year-old state wrestling champ from a “Catholic” high school in Gilbertsville, Iowa, is the latest victim of what is now widespread political exploitation of the young by the media and cultural Marxist agitators. Fox has achieved international acclaim and, as he put it, the support of the entire state of Iowa, for announcing he likes sodomy. Read More »


Employment Lies

April 13, 2015

JIM QUINN writes in a piece at Zero Hedge:

Every time the BLS puts out their monthly propaganda report on the wonderful state of the U.S. jobs market and states with a straight face the unemployment rate is a measly 5.5%, their corporate mouthpieces in the mainstream cheerleader media regurgitate the fake numbers and urge you to buy stocks. The millionaire talking heads on CNBC and the corrupt bought off politicians in D.C. make broad sweeping declarations about economic recovery, strong job growth, GDP advancement, record highs in the stock market, and soaring consumer confidence.

The people living in the real world know otherwise, but they want to believe the “experts” and “leaders”. This dichotomy between reality and what they are being told is causing a tremendous amount of mental stress. Read More »


The Incredulity of St. Thomas

April 12, 2015



The Incredulity of St. Thomas, Caravaggio

Now Thomas, one of the twelve, who is called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. The other disciples therefore said to him: We have seen the Lord. But he said to them: Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the place of the nails, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.

And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them. Jesus cometh, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said: Peace be to you. Then he saith to Thomas: Put in thy finger hither, and see my hands; and bring hither thy hand, and put it into my side; and be not faithless, but believing. Thomas answered, and said to him: My Lord, and my God. Jesus saith to him: Because thou hast seen me, Thomas, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and have believed. Many other signs also did Jesus in the sight of his disciples, which are not written in this book.

But these are written, that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God: and that believing, you may have life in his name.

—– Gospel According to St. John, Chapt. 20, 24-31



On “Comply or Die” Policing

JOE A., who frequently sends articles about excessive police force, writes:

I’m not the only one to use “comply or ivorcie!” to name the de facto cop policy of “fire at will.”

To those “conservatives” who defend killer cops because they are “the good guys,” I say: Read More »
