- Catholic school apologizes after clip emerges of students mocking Native Americans
- Catholic clergy have acted more shamefully in Covington controversy than leftist media
Americans were galvanized by the video clip of a 16-year-old high school student confronting Native American activist, Nathan Phillips, in Washington D.C. on Friday, January 18th. The teenager was joined by his fellow Covington Catholic High School (Park Hills, Kentucky) classmates, many of whom “taunted” Phillips and other Native Americans in his entourage, with faux Native American war chants while wearing caps with “Make America Great Again” logos. It’s obvious why politically-liberal media sources sought to exploit this incident. I personally don’t get too excited about most things that high school students do. It was unwise for the teen to engage in a stare-down contest with Phillips, but the actions of Phillips and the other Native Americans accompanying him could also easily be interpreted as confrontational and inflammatory (they approached the students, not vice versa). Phillips claims he was only trying to diffuse an earlier confrontation between the students and Black Hebrew Israelite radical provocateurs (who spewed racist comments at both the Native Americans and students that the media chose to overlook without comment). The two Catholic media articles above, one liberal, one conservative, reflect the opposing camps within Catholicism. I normally don’t post on political matters, but this one is creating quite a buzz among American Catholics. Bottom line: the Catholic high schoolers, Phillips, and Black Hebrew Israelites all need salvation in Jesus Christ.
New York State’s new abortion law, championed by Roman Catholic, Governor Andrew Cuomo, allows full-term abortions right up until the baby’s delivery date. The new World Trade Center building in New York City was lit up in pink lights to “celebrate” the passage of the new law. Cuomo has previously stated he desires for New York to be noted as the most progressive state in the country. An abortion during any point of a pregnancy is horrendous, but imagine, if you can, an abortionist ending the life of a pre-born infant only a week prior to his/her birth.
Few evangelicals understand how important the “sacrifice of the mass” is to Catholicism, whereby the priest allegedly changes bread wafers and wine into Jesus Christ and then offers him up to God the Father as a sacrifice for sins. The Catholic laity then consume the Jesus wafer, believing it imparts graces to help them live a “moral” life so that they may hopefully someday merit Heaven.
Pope Francis has been accused of covering up for sexual predators, bishop Gustavo Zanchetta and cardinal Ted McCarrick, as well as for several prelate enablers.
This story focuses on one particular Catholic seminary to demonstrate how anti-Francis sentiment is growing among conservative Catholic clergy and academicians.
- Psalms Experts: ‘Lift Up Your Hands’ Actually Means ‘Just Stand There With Your Hands In Your Pockets’ (satire)
These “Psalms Experts” must be Baptist stoics like me.
I had a 30-something male neighbor who used to live across the street who routinely parked his car in the garage during the winter months while his wife’s car stayed outside in the driveway and collected snow. And who brushed the snow off her car every morning? She did, much to my wife’s consternation. Another blow against toxic masculinity!
As I mentioned above, I try not to comment on political issues, but the recent government shut-down tipped the scales once again. I’ve lived through the administrations of twelve U.S. presidents (with admittedly few memories of Ike), but in sixty-two years I’ve never witnessed the lack of leadership, decorum, civility, and statesmanship that I’ve seen in the last two years. If nothing else, the chaos we’re seeing in Washington should teach people that their salvation is not via government or politics.
