Francis and Caiaphas: A Tale of Two High Priests

One thing we know about Pope Francis: He has an unhealthy obsession with Judas. In his private apartments, a crude painting hangs which depicts the risen Jesus ministering to Judas’s body after his suicide. Francis has repeatedly mused that Judas might have been saved — in support of the suggestion that no one is finally … Read more

And Then They Came For The Orthodox

First they came for Chick-fil-A. Then they came for the people who mainly eat there, Evangelical Protestants. Then they sent the FBI after the Catholics (but just the ones using Latin and actually following Church teachings on the sin of abortion). Now they’re coming for Orthodox Christians. Most recently—during our Lent, of course—a Texas Monthly … Read more

Francis Creates Schism with the Church That Stood Up to ISIS

The theological schisms that had a dramatic impact on church history are, unfortunately, not a thing of the past. At a time when various Christian bodies have been trying to reconcile and heal centuries-old rifts and misunderstandings, a new break is currently taking place — this time concerning “a landmark ruling approved last December by … Read more

How Do You Solve a Problem Like Jesuit Sex Abuse?

Historians remember the orgy-loving Borgia pope, Alexander VI, as the protagonist of the raunchiest soap opera in papal history. In 1501, on the Sunday before All Hallows, the pope’s bastard, Cardinal Cesare Borgia, hosted his scandalous “Banquet of Chestnuts.” At the bacchanalia held in the Apostolic Palace, the 70-year-old pontiff and his clergy were entertained … Read more

The Pornocracy at the Vatican

I didn’t make up the word. “Pornocracy” is the term professional historians use to refer to a dark period in the papacy, in the 10th century when local Roman nobles picked the popes — and often fought each other in the streets to maintain control over the Vatican. The word literally means “rule by whores,” … Read more

Would Jesus Use Razor Wire at Borders? Would He Gaslight People with Dishonest ‘WWJD’ Arguments?

You’re seeing it already: the attempt to snap Christians’ spines and render us invertebrates, to leash us via our heartstrings, to shame us into silence about the Biden regime’s lawlessness at the border. As a Catholic, I’m used to this dreck. I’ve been inundated with open borders agitprop by professional Catholics for decades. Some of … Read more

Throwing You Off a Bridge and Selling It as ‘Compassion’

Listen to anyone talking up progressive Christianity, and it won’t take more than three minutes to hear they major in compassion. The self-styled “New Evangelicals” preach how they care for people who’ve been “marginalized and disenfranchised by the American Evangelical Church,” Progressive Christian apologist Randal Rauser says right actions — caring actions — get priority … Read more

Pope Francis and the Leaven of Ambiguity

The Pope is rightfully being criticized for his decision to sanction the blessing of same-sex couples. But along with the seriousness of his error, there are two critical takeaways from the story. If we miss them, we’ll ignore what Evangelicals need to face in 2024. It’s well known that several mainline Protestant denominations have departed … Read more

Pope Francis’ Top Doctrine Cop Echoes Occultists Aleister Crowley and Margaret Sanger on the ‘Mystical’ Power of Sex

Editor’s Note: This article contains sexual language.  This is grim stuff, so let’s start off nice and easy. With a challenging little puzzle, like those silly “test your knowledge” posts you see on social media. Can you match the quotation below with the author?
