The worst result of the SCOTUS marriage decision

The worst result of the SCOTUS marriage decision
The worst result of the SCOTUS marriage decision is an article I posted to my Being Catholic … Really page (scroll down to find the article and the comments made) and I got a lot of flack for it.  Some thought I wrote it and became very angry with me.  I didn’t correct them because I agree with...

Four articles that will stay with me for a long time

Holy Week is finally here and what seemed like a long Lent will finally end this Sunday.  I read a lot regardless of the time of year, but rarely do I read things that just linger inside my brain or my very soul. These four articles that I read this week will stay with me... Read more »

How Should Catholics Respond to the Supreme Court Marriage Decision?

How should Catholics respond to the Supreme Court marriage decision?  After reading articles on both sides of the issue, I thought my brain would either explode or leak out of my ears.

Gay Marriage and the Breakdown of Moral Argument

If you eliminate “Gay Marriage” from the title, this pretty much applies to everything. In today’s culture we have have a breakdown of moral argument in general. Everyone is “screaming” from their keyboard to be heard. I’ve also noticed that for the most part, when it comes to religion, no one really wants to hear... Read more »

Usually on my Facebook page things are pretty calm, but every once in a while the conversation gets very heated.  I do have to give everybody credit for keeping things civil though.

Michael Voris is what I would call a “pit bull Catholic.”  Once he sinks his teeth in, he doesn’t let go.  There are times when he is extreme but in this case, I don’t think he is. When our president announced he was for gay marriage, my first thought was “he’s going to do anything... Read more »

Is it Hatred to Ban Same-Sex Marriage?

Is it hatred to ban homosexuals from marrying?  I read a lot of articles that say it is, comparing it to the ban on interracial marriage from before the 1960’s. Does the hatred of people lead us to limit their rights?  It is interesting that North Carolina passed the ban on gay marriage (or if... Read more »

Some Pharisees approached Jesus, and tested him, saying, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any cause whatever?” He said in reply, “Have you not read that from the beginning the Creator made them male and female and said, For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be...
