Paycheck in Catholicism, Contraception, Homosexuality
Interesting discussion over at Saint Joseph’s Young Adult Faith Community between me and Dr. John Baglow who runs Dawg’s Blog. He and I go way back to March 25, 2008 when we both attended a “Canadian Heresy Trial” hosted by our notorious Canadian Human Rights Tribunal. Of course, secularists are generally not honest enough to admit that that’s what they have going on under the guise of “human rights” racket, but alas, a rose by any other name….

Bring on the November elections!
Squeaker in Catholic Scandals, Homosexuality
As we’ve noted earlier, St. Joseph’s Young Adult Faith Community (affiliated with St. Joseph’s parish of Ottawa) is participating in Sunday’s Gay Pride parade in Ottawa. They’re also recruiting participants to join them.
I’d like to do some recruiting of my own to document this event for the benefit of our Archbishop.
Paycheck in Catholicism, Homosexuality
As far back as 1986, then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger called out the threat of homosexual totalitarianism which is now bearing down on society. As Prefect for the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the future Pope would warn his fellow bishops of the political risk of not boldly proclaiming the Church’s teaching on homosexuality. They didn’t listen. Today, we have gay “marriage”. Tomorrow, the Church will be underground – because the bishops are still not listening or teaching.
In order to counter some of the distortions and manipulations of Catholic teaching surrounding the issue of homosexuality, I am presenting four simple reasons (with the associated evidence ) of why Catholics must oppose the normalization of homosexuality in our society. The reasons given below are from a Catholic perspective. While there are many valid secular reasons for opposing the acceptance of homosexuality, the following analysis is limited to arguing against the practice solely from a Catholic point of view. It is not primarly meant to convince a non-Catholic who, naturally, does not accept the Church’s teaching authority. Read the rest of this entry »
Paycheck in Pro-Life Activism
40 Days for Life is an international campaign of prayer and peaceful witness outside of the world’s abortion mills to highlight and defeat the scourge of abortion in our time. There have now been five coordinated 40 Days for Life campaigns in Ottawa, beginning in the Autumn of 2007 until now. These efforts have mobilized people of faith and conscience in 240 cities across all 50 of the United States, five Canadian provinces, plus locations in Europe and Australia. Thousands of lives have been saved! After so many years of legalized abortion, many people of faith are experiencing a renewed sense of HOPE!

Paycheck in Canadian Politics, Catholic Education
Don’t forget to get out and vote in the Municipal elections this October…especially for Catholic School Trustee.

If we had frank talk like this from our bishops many years ago, we would not be in the position we’re in today.

Paycheck in Catholic Scandals, Social Justice
A revolution and war is coming in the Catholic Church.
Or we don’t really believe what we profess.
In China, the faithful smell out a phony, get up, and walk when he shows up.
Perhaps it’s time for Catholics in North America to petition Rome for alternative oversight. We have too many “Ma Yinglins” – bishops who have long sold out to what the government and the culture want.
At least China has an underground Church. Can we have one too?
Squeaker in Catholic Scandals, Homosexuality
A few days ago, John posted a story about St. Joseph’s Young Adult Faith Community seeking to recruit participants for the annual Pride parade in Ottawa on August 29th. An anonymous person from St. Joe’s parish actually posted a comment on that post claiming that homosexuality is not a sin. This may be true for homosexual attraction, if the individual does not follow up with homosexual behaviour or lust. But homosexual behaviour itself is a no brainer. Feel free to join the discussion in the comments section of that post. Please be respectful.
Paycheck in Catholic Education
McGuinty’s poison pill for Ontario schools
“No to McGuinty” reads June’s editorial. The July/August, message was “Alarm bells are ringing for your children.” In May, Catholic Insight published, “The rising polyamorous culture is out to get your children” (pp.16-18), and in January we are on record as saying that “Ontario Education Minister Kathleen Wynne is going headlong against the teaching of the Church” (“Ontario government’s initiative would force Catholic Schools to violate Church teaching,” Life Site News, Jan 7, 2010) . How serious is all this? What is the context? Read the rest of this entry »
