Happy St. Nicholas Day

  HERE is a detailed description at the St. Nicholas Center of the history and legends surrounding St. Nicholas, who was born in third-century Greece on December 6. The account includes the stories of how this patron saint of children and unmarried women provided the dowry for three poor girls and how he saved a […]

Toward a Counter-Culture

  IN CONTINUATION of the discussion about refusing state marriage licenses, Jeremy Morris writes: America has been reduced to a culture filled with distractions, light shows that do nothing more than hold our attention just long enough to cause us to forget our duty to God almighty. It is the “Vanity Fair” of John Bunyan’s […]

Why Hasn’t Joe Biden Been Excommunicated?

  THERE is a vacuum of authority at the  highest levels of the Church. Once again last night, Joe Biden, whose diabolical smirk dominated the vice-presidential debate, stated his support for Roe v. Wade. He said he doesn’t support abortion in his private life, but doesn’t believe it’s right to impose his belief on others, including Jews […]

A Debate between Two Catholics

  IN THIS article at the Washington Post, Maria Mazzenga, a scholar at Catholic University, is quoted regarding tonight’s vice-presidential debate. Both Biden and Ryan, as everyone knows, consider themselves Catholic. Heading off the glaring fact that one of these men is clearly anti-Catholic, Mazzenga says neither man follows Catholic teaching perfectly.

Is There a Baby Boom among White Liberals?

  IN THIS recent entry, readers discussed anecdotal evidence that a baby boom has occurred in some affluent, predominantly liberal white communities. This may be true in certain areas, but recent census figures suggest the trend is not widespread. As Jesse Powell reported previously, in the ten wealthiest zip codes discussed by Charles Murray, author of Coming […]

Loving Sin

  ALAN ROEBUCK, in a “A Nation That Honors Sin,” an essay at Intellectual Conservative, argues that neither political action nor Christian evangelism are enough to counter the overwhelming success of liberalism in America. No society in history has institutionalized the approval of sin to the extent the modern West has. He argues that a focus on individual […]

“Keep Thy Heart, Thou Man of Europe”

  THESE are days of darkness for white European civilization. The sky is darkened. The sun is in near total eclipse. Illumination comes not from great schemes of political reform. It comes, if it comes at all, from the lighted candle of the human soul. It comes from the burning heart.  The author of Cambria Will Not Yield writes:   Reason alone cannot restore the European’s sanity, because reason […]

Mzzzz. and the Fall from Grace

  MR. R. writes: You know, I just realized for the first time in my adult life that I have grown quite accustomed to addressing women as “Ms” in letters and emails, even when I am reasonably sure they are married. I think that has become a convention resulting from feminism, where it MUST NOT […]

A “Juncture of the Religious Dimension”

  THE BLOGGER Tiberge at Galliawatch reports that some Catholic schools in Marseilles are now 80 percent Muslim. Citing French press accounts, she writes: For the archbishop, training through inter-religious dialogue will permit these questions to be answered: “How to announce the Gospel? How to accept Muslim holidays? What can we accept or not accept?” According to archbishop Georges Pontier, […]

Cuomo at Church

  NEW YORK Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who is divorced, has been living with his girlfriend, the Food Network celebrity Sandra Lee. Under Catholic canon law, that makes him guilty of ”public concubinage” and he is not entitled to take communion. While many thousands of Catholics appear to be unaware of canon law, Cuomo cannot plead ignorance. As reported in The New York Times, […]

The Emasculated Christian and the ‘Prophetess Wife’

  IN THIS previous entry, a reader described the outright worship of femininity in his mainstream Pentecostal church. In this follow-up, he goes on to recount the full horror of it. The experience nearly ruined his marriage and home, erupting into full-blown emotional confrontations with his wife and pastor. His story is long, but gripping and worth reading in its entirety. [The reader was previously […]

More on Christianity and Feminism

  CHARLES WRITES: In the entry “The Christian Wimp,” Lawrence Auster asks:  How could anyone, with any normal amount of spirit in him, be a part of such a congregation and swallow such a message?  There are a number of reasons this can be so. In a general sense, if one has been raised in […]

The Christian Wimp

   K. writes: I’ve been a visitor to your blog for some time now, having discovered it by accident, and, for me, it’s been a cool drink of water in a cultural desert. Thank you so very much for your stand against feminism, and for Biblical womanhood. I can’t tell you how much this site, […]
