Mark Shea: The Internet's Donald Trump

More G.K. Chesterton, less Mark Shea
 Dave Griffey makes the case that Mark Shea is simply an internet version of Donald Trump, a man he routinely castigates. I don't usually point people to Patheos, but this article is so on target about Mark Shea, I had to link.
How can I be so heartless and judgmental to compare Mark to Trump? Or compare others on Social Media to Trump? Easy. I read. I listen to Trump and what people criticize him for, and then visit various Facebook pages, including Mark’s, and I see no difference. Trump, beyond the policies he advocates – when we can figure them out – is brash, crude, rude, vulgar, sinful, mean spirited, ill-informed and simply a lousy person because of how he interacts with others and treats others who dare disagree with him.
So how is that different than Mark, or even Mark’s own followers? Or the followers on any one of a million sites?

Our job as Catholics: To implement Luke 17:21 -- "The Kingdom of God is in the midst of you."

Rush Limbaugh jokes about "low information voters." We've all seen videos of (presumable) voters who talk about Obama paying for free goodies out of his "stash." And then there are the on-campus interviews of college students who can't name a single Founding Father, but can tell you minute details about Beyonce. We're in trouble, folks.

Which is one reason I was excited to receive an email from a friend in Front Royal, VA describing an initiative he and several friends are spearheading: The Front Royal Catholics Civic Education Group. they have a website and Facebook page.

George Soros and Pope Francis -- Strange Bedfellows or Birds of a Feather?

Wikileaks published a number of emails showing how George Soros uses supporters within the
Money talks, even at the Vatican. Now that we have
Laudato Si, what shall we do next from our marxist agenda?
Vatican to influence Pope Francis. It's not a pretty story and, in fact, it should give every Catholic pause. When a socialist monster like Soros is influencing how the Vatican approaches the moral issues of the day, WATCH OUT! LifeSiteNews and The Remnant both wrote stories showing how Soros money is being used to influence what comes out of Rome. Here are some excerpts from The Remnant story:

A Poem: The Reprobation of Hillary Clinton

A friend sent me a poem from a young woman named Corinna Swetz who will be 25 next month. I thought it was worth sharing. Unlike les femmes who love the Lord and fight for the faith as our patron St. Joan of Arc did, la femme Hillary is more like the sorceress involved in the Eucharistic miracle of Offida who advised a young bride to take a consecrated host, burn it, and put it into her husband's food as a love potion. Hillary's blood lust is aimed at the little images of Christ in their mother's wombs. She not only encourages their murder as choice, but enables the butchers who sacrifice them on their bloody altars. May God have mercy on her soul.

Polygamy for Muslims in Italy?

Man with wives 1, 2, 3, & 4
 If the Italian government passed a law to legalize sodomy then can polygamy for Muslims be far behind? Seems that it's only a matter of time. It's only fair, right? If God's marriage is tossed into the heap of yesteryear and of no importance, then anything goes so there should be no problem passing polygamy.

Hamza Piccardo, an Italian Islamic leader and Spokesperson of the European Muslim Network, wants polygamy legalized for consenting persons, especially Muslims.  Muslims don’t agree with same sex unions but have to accept it in the West, so they feel that other people should accept polygamy even if they don’t agree with it.

Pornography: it fuels violence against women! Listen to one famous victim.

Elizabeth Smart survived nine months of horrifying abuse
Now she works to help abuse victims.
I once heard a talk by a police officer who specialized in violent crimes from rape to serial killing. He said he never caught a perpetrator that he didn't find pornography in his possession. Many people think porn is no big deal, but multiple studies show how porn use changes your brain. And how soft porn is the "entry drug" that creates an addiction that makes the user want more and more and increasingly hard-core material. Check out studies here, here, and here.

American Shuts Up Rampaging Saudi Wahhabi Muslim in Georgetown

"I AM PEACE!!! I AM PEACE!!!
DON'T TOUCH ME, YOU LIAR!!!" says peaceful Muslim
The video below is priceless. In a white hot rage, utterly incapable of "dialogue" or participating in a reasonable discussion, a Saudi Wahhabi Muslim SCREAMS and YELLS at peaceful demonstrators whose signs say that radical Wahhabi Islam has no place in the world.

The irate Wahhabi Muslim SCREAMS that the demonstrators are Iranians or Russians who kill children then screams, YOU ARE TERRORISTS! IRANIAN OR RUSSIAN! 

Then he screams, "WE ARE PEACE!!! WE ARE PEACE!!!!" He shouts, DON'T TOUCH ME! DON'T TOUCH ME! YOU ARE NOT MUSLIM! DON'T TOUCH ME DON'T TOUCH ME DON'T TOUCH ME!!!!

Signs in the Heavens: Are you paying attention?

I've reflected for months on the fact that next year is the 100th anniversary of Fatima. My spiritual antennae say it's going to be a deeply significant year for the USA and the world.

And here's a post from Fr. Z that just made my antennae start quivering addressing the total solar eclipse a year from today. Is the Lord trying to get our attention?

Trump: He's "Honest" and a "Square Dealer"

The Day I Went Head to Head with Donald Trump

Thomas Stewart is a retired investment banker with a military background who flew combat missions as an attack flight officer in the Gulf War. Here's a quick summary from the article:
Whenever I hear someone complain that Donald Trump is “not presidential,” I reply, “Compared to whom? Which president are we talking about? How ‘presidential’ was Barack Obama in 2008 when he said of the Republicans, ‘If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun’?”

What Did You Learn in Kindergarten?

The Joyful Illiterate Kindergarteners of Finland

I love this article because it shows a learning program that treats children like real little individuals who need to be children. No wonder Finnish schools are doing so much better than those in America.

 I remember my own kindergarten experience.
