Really Pro-Life Platform for a Christian Third Party

The Spanish have a saying, Pan para hoy, hambre para mañana, or Bread for today, hunger for tomorrow, and that just about nails down the economic implications of the rush for homosexual marriage. Businesses filed Friend of the Court briefs in huge numbers before the Supreme Court decision, and Marriott summed it up in their celebratory statement as reported by NPR: gays have more disposable income than families with kids, and we want that dough. Mars bars, Apple, Starbucks, Amazon, New York Life and Levi Strauss, 278 in all were eager to throw marriage under the bus for a cut of the action.

That bread dough has a shelf-life, of course. It expires with the next generation–oops, what generation? And then we shall know the hunger. Continue reading



Hungary’s plea: If only we had a stronger Church!

Please note: SSPX does have mass in Budapest, Hungary, on the second and third Sundays of the month at 10:00, as well as 6:00 on the Saturday evenings preceding the Sunday. The celebrant is Father Fuchs. The address is Thokoly Ut 116.1.3, #3. More information may be obtained from Mr. Landgrebe, who speaks English, at the Austria rectory +4327166515 (how Google Voice renders it, which worked for me calling from the US) or +43 (0) 2716/6515 (how the Austrian website renders it and perhaps for European dialers). Let’s go show Hungary some love.

 And now, on the topic:

A Polish Catholic Sunday weekly interviewed Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban that makes the connection between Hungary’s fight to reverse her dire situation and SSPX’s doctrinal struggles.  You must read this interview, where the rosary is  given its proper place as a full-blown political weapon, and in which we hear the director of a country in the fight of its life say the words traditional Catholics are saying all over the world.  Viktor Orban laid it out: “If we had stronger Church, the whole country would be stronger.” Continue reading



The Savior App

At midday on the solemnity of the Epiphany, the Holy Father spoke to the faithful assembled outside his windows to pray the Angelus.

…. Western society,” the Holy Father said, “seems to have lost direction and is  feeling its way forward.  The Church, thanks to the word of God, see beyond the  shadows. She does not possess technical solutions but she has her gaze turned to the final destination offering the light of the gospel to all men and women of  goodwill, of whatever nation or culture.”

Dearest Holy Father, what do you mean, no technical solutions! We have apps!

Poor Philippines, It’s Your Turn

Once again Vatican II has been named in a political struggle between pro-life Catholics and liberal Catholics who would institute public policy at variance with Catholic teaching, and thereby do economic and ecological harm.   Continue reading



Planned Parenthood to South Korea: Oops, We Destroyed You! Sorry!

In the astonishingly frank 2009 interview linked here, the head of Korean Planned Parenthood , Mr. Choi Seon-jeony, details the depth of Korea’s depopulation crisis and the transformation it has wreaked upon Planned Parenthood itself. Go read it, but if you don’t have time, you will find a short summary below. The reader may notice inconsistencies in the summary; they are present in the original.

Nancy, Take a Note: Babies Mean Business

A Swedish public health expert has spilled the beans. He has researched the value of a baby to the Swedish economy. He wasn’t trying to stop abortion or threaten the contraceptive mentality. He wasn’t fighting the anti-natalist notion  that every baby born is a bottomless drain on the economy and a blow to the environment. If that had been the case, if he’d have been arguing that we should stop killing babies, he’d be mopping university library floors instead of studying there.

Catholics Save Wall Street!

 It’s the near future, but the same old story. The market has been spiraling downward for several quarters. What began as a minor bump in the road, a little overextension in the sub-prime market, has lasted long enough to be called a recession, and lately even the big D word has begun to join the dismal chant. Nothing’s helped, the old slight-of-hand with interest rates, pitiful attempts to jack productivity, then increasingly ‘socialist’ efforts to spread some remaining wealth around. Nothing’s worked. Everything has gone to hell.

Then, out of nowhere: voila, hello, here comes the cavalry! Can you believe it? It’s the Catholics! In the face of severe economic adversity, they have launched a cultural war.
