Did U.S. Bishops Make a Deal With the Democrats, Like the Vatican’s Alliance With China?

Posted on

We Catholics were deeply scandalized when Pope Francis sent then-Cardinal McCarrick (yes, the child molester now hiding from reporters) to negotiate a deal with Communist China. Its terms remain partly secret. That piece of transparency hearkens back to the 1939 Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact. Two apparent enemies inked a deal against the West, the secret provisions including […]

Troublers of America, Arise!

Posted on

The most disturbing reality in the midst of this crisis is a muzzled, cowering church. Handcuffs, ankle monitors and locked church buildings are the new normal for many Christians in America today. The state has threatened worshipers of Jesus. At the same time, they are opening the “essential” doors of Planned Parenthood wide. Somehow it’s […]

Catholics Ask Shepherds: Where Are You?

Posted on

A national open letter campaign launched this week. Its aim? To urge all U.S. bishops to find safe ways to restore the sacraments to Catholics, who’ve been deprived of them because of the coronavirus pandemic. (Full disclosure: I added my name to the list of signatories.) “Something is terribly wrong with a culture that allows […]
