Paycheck in Catholic Scandals, Homosexuality
Seriously. No, really. He said that. That’s from his Facebook page today, plugging his article “I was wrong”. Nobody believes the story of Sodom refers to consensual homosexuality? Uh, your Church does, Michael. In fact, no serious theologian before the sexual revolution thought or wrote otherwise. “Nobody believes, nobody believes”? What is this, some kind of massive fraud that you are trying to perpetrate, Michael? This is so sad, but the alarm bells have been sounding for some time about Mr. Coren. I think this fire drill clears out the building. I don’t think Mike quite gets it: STERILIZED SEX IS CONDEMNED IN THE BIBLE IN ALL ITS FORMS. That’s why Mr. Coren won’t answer my question about Humanae Vitae. He won’t do it, because his jig would be up. The problem with giving Michael Coren a Catholic megaphone is that he doesn’t know what the hell he is talking about. Please don’t help spread his errors in the Catholic community.
p.s. Under Coren’s rubric of St. Paul condemning heterosexual rape of boys, I guess the only orientation on the outs are the bi-sexuals, for all intents and purposes. Or, perhaps, heterosexuals who rape boys should have their own orientation too. After all, we wouldn’t want to discriminate, would we? Mr. Coren’s view of sexual sin simply consists in ensuring that all parties consent…then there’s no problem. But that is hardly the Catholic view…because GOD does not consent.

Disappeared because it doesn’t fit the approved victimology meme.
Sidenote: My parent were from the Azores too. I was born here in Canada. In 1977, I would have been 8. This whole account really sickens me.

Mike, in case you read this post, here are four things you need to ‘git:
1. Please stop the pornography of victimology that you fraudulently try to trump up, creating a caricature based on the gay fantasy of your opponents. It’s really becoming a source of fatigue. You know, as crazy as it sounds, people can actually disagree with you without being hatey-haters. Shocking but true!
2. No one claimed you were “intimidated” into buying the Gay line. You are simply in a difficult situation, having to choose between a close family member or friend and the Truth. You chose the former. We’ll keep praying for you, but please understand that your choice has consequences (Matthew 10:37).
3. You cannot evolve on this “single subject” because this “single subject” – if you are honest – will force you to accept other sins which the Catholic Church categorically rejects.
4. “Sin” and “disorder” are indeed ugly terms, but that doesn’t mean they should not be used. The Catechism uses them a lot – especially in talking about homosexual acts. Have you heard of the Catechism, Mike? It’s a big book which John Paul II called a “sure norm for teaching the Faith”. Check it out some time.
By the way, if you must carry on about your new evolution, please be so kind as to distance and disclaim any association with Catholic teaching on the subject. I trust that you still value integrity. We expect you to show it.
Paycheck in Homosexuality, Pornography
It was never about “marriage equality”. It was always, always, always about going after your kids and corrupting them.
Clueless lemmings didn’t have an answer when the media asked them, “How does gay marriage affect you“?
Duh. Now they know.
Sex has never been a private affair. That’s why there were laws on the book, Buckwheat! — because our fathers before us knew what the hell would be unleashed, but we forsook their counsel and here we are…gay porn for kids.
Paycheck in Eugenics
After the “me” generation is gone, what will our culture look like? Dear Lord, just make this nightmare end sooner rather than later. That’s all I ask.
Future generations will look back and condemn this one. They might even create a monument of “how not to do society”.
We’re the most technologically “connected” society in history, and yet the most jaded and separated one too…where it counts…in the family.
That’s the problem when you reject God. Everything starts to fall apart.
Note to all single women who think they don’t need a man: THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A “RIGHT” TO A CHILD. That’s the problem when we start commodifying human life.
And you can thank contraception for starting it, too. Hello Winnipeg Statement!
Paycheck in Catholicism, Islam, Religious Persecution
That’s what Catholics have to deal with in Pakistan. Please do your part and help me help them.
The thing about sexual sin is that it is founded on a theological error. And while most “gay friendly” churches don’t really focus on “old time religion” doctrines, every so often they let some doozies slip….like this one…..
Uh huh. God is one person manifested in three ways? No. That’s what we call modalism and it was condemned by the Church way back in the third century.
It’s not surprising that gay friendly “theologians” don’t really understand or accept the Trinity because they don’t have a proper understanding of what “family” is — a reflection of the Trinity!
If your conception of family is all screwed up, it is only logical that your idea of what the Trinity is will be equally erroneous.
The thing about those particular texts is that they aren’t ambiguous or prone to misinterpretation. Pretty crystal clear.

As many of our readers know, yours truly went through a bit of a rough patch over the past year. No need to go through all of the sordid details at this time. In fact, the drama is still playing through and might be a good write-up for a future blog post. It has all the earmarks of a classic, I assure you. Bastards, liars, gamblers, money laundering, the mafia. You name it. It’s been quite a ride, and it’s still not over!
Anyhow, around November of last year, I was at the low point in my little adventure. One evening, I was sitting on my bed, bemoaning my fate — like one of those “dark nights of the soul” gigs that the saints some time experience except that I am no saint but it sure was all darkness — when I heard a bling on my one of my kid’s IPADs. It was a Facebook message from a priest in Pakistan, named Fr. Simon.
Here is how the conversation went:
And so the conversation between Fr. Simon and I continued over the next several months, as Fr. Simon related to me the struggles and challenges he faces to minister to the Christian community in Pakistan, and the uplifting zeal he has for evangelization even in the midst of great persecution and suffering. It puts us all to shame here in the West. It really does.
His bishop, Bishop Joseph Coutts, even called me on my cell phone asking for my help.
Many of you have heard of the famous case of Meriam Ibrahim. Well, Islamic persecution of Christians is becoming more and more common place all over the world. In Pakistan, the persecution is particularly vicious in recent years, as Islamic militancy is turning to violence to conquer any profession that is not Islamic. For the most part, that means Christians are on the receiving end of this terrorism which includes human trafficking, sexual slavery, hard labour, and lethal violence.
After hearing about Fr. Simon’s accounts, I thought to myself, “Enough of this. I can do something. I have a blog. I have readers. I have an e-mail list. I have a mouth. I’m going to use them all.” I felt moved to do something about the plight of our Catholic children (and other Christians) in Pakistan. I hope other bloggers will join me.
I’ve set up the website for our relief organization called, Mountain of Jesus Ministries. You can read more about us there.
So here we go, folks, I’m hoping to raise about $1,000 to get us started. Please help me. If you are a blogger, I need your help to spread what I - ahem what we Catholic and other Christian bloggers – are trying to do because I want this to be a blogger-based initiative (although other sources and means of generating funds are gratefully accepted). As bloggers and blog readers, we have an incredible resource to do a lot of good. We don’t need a big bureaucracy. We just need the will and the determination to do our part and to right an injustice.
All money raised goes directly to Fr. Simon’s efforts to save our Christian children there. There is no overhead expenses here. The money is going directly into my PayPal Account (The Catholic Legate) and then to the Ministry’s bank account. He has promised a full accounting of the expenditures. Eventually the plan is to register Mountain of Jesus Ministries as a charitable organization here in Canada, but that is likely 6-12 months away. In the mean time, they still need our help.
So this is what I need from you all:
1. Prayer for the success of this venture.
2. Prayer for the success of this venture.
3. Prayer for the success of this venture.
4. A PayPal donation, if possible.
2. Please e-mail your friends about our initiative (yes, you can really believe this is ***your ministry***. It’s just started, so you have first dibs!)
On behalf of Fr. Simon, Bishop Coutts, Mountain of Jesus Ministries, and Socon or Bust, I thank you for your support and prayers. – John Pacheco

Squeaker in Abortion
It still amazes me how nobody clues into the double standard between the tragedy of a newborn’s death vs. the collective yawn over abortion.
This part of the article is my fave:
Uh, officer… It happens about 100,000 times a year in this country, including a few hundred in the third trimester when a woman is clearly showing. Can you give me anything more to go on?

Praise be to God! Now let’s pray she doesn’t get killed by a lynch mob.
She really did call it. But wait! That’s not the end of the story….
Bring it! My dear fellow warriors in the trenches. Be not afraid. Understand that we are facing the greatest fight in the Church’s history and that everything we do for Holy Mother Church, even the slightest thing, becomes amplified in eternity to the Glory of the Risen Christ.
