Archdiocese of Detroit won’t let Real Catholic TV use the word “Catholic”

Interestingly enough, the Archdiocese of Detroit website doesn’t identify itself as Catholic, either. What gives?

Editor’s note: Look for an official canonical action coming up, where it’s determined that Real Catholic TV is more authentically Catholic than the Archdiocese of Detroit. Allow 8-50 years for the Vatican decision to come down, plus another similar time frame for all the necessary appeals.

Feminists defend abortion with desperate passion because the whole shaky structure of their lives depends upon it…

These three interlocking bad ideas—abortion, careerism, and promiscuity—present a complicated picture, and initially a depressing one. If you’ve ever played the game of pick-up sticks, you know how impossible the task looks at the beginning, when you must gradually and carefully dislodge the first sticks one at a time without collapsing the pile.

30 years ago, on December 13, 1981, martial law was imposed upon Catholic Poland by the communist government.

One of (President) Reagan’s first responses was to call someone he deeply respected: John Paul II. On December 14, he told the Holy Father: “Our country was inspired when you visited Poland, and to see their commitment to religion and belief in God. It was an inspiration…. All of us were very thrilled.”

Seen on the web: The latest info on the status of Father Corapi

According to his most recent office manager, Justin Meccia, John Corapi returned from a hunting trip in September and gave notice to Justin and other Santa Cruz Media staff that he was closing his business.

His website has not been updated significantly since then (with the exception of posts made in his name to promote his post-July products, the series on abortion and Part 1 of the DVD version of his promised biography), phone calls are not answered, and mail is returned. There have been some unauthorized attempts to sell his old inventory on a couple of pop-up websites, but these disappear quickly. There have been no official updates from the SOLT or any other Church authority in this case since July.

Apparently he continues to reside in Montana, keeping a low profile and complying with the requirements that he not represent himself as a priest in public. The lawsuit has not been withdrawn, though no action has been publicly announced. The various Facebook pages that rose up to support or criticize him have dwindled to a few members each, issuing regular shots at one another but providing no light.

A key insight into the unique, divine personhood of Jesus Christ


Jesus died over 2000 years ago,

yet nobody has ever referred to him as the late Jesus,

not even the heathens. Nowhere in history.

Nowhere has He EVER been referred to in the past tense!

Jesus is truly our risen Lord … and the Living God!

Weigel: How Cardinal Pell reformed much of the Australian church

When Pell became archbishop of Melbourne in 1996, Catholic Lite was the order of the day throughout the country, with the usual results: goofball liturgy (one bishop celebrated Mass made up as a clown); dumbed-down catechesis; a collapse in religious vocations and seminary applications; the Church bureaucracy joined at the hip to the hard left in Australian public life. Reversing this drift toward theological and moral incoherence and public irrelevance was going to be very hard work.

Then Pell caught a break: when his seminary faculty threatened to resign en masse because he insisted that the seminarians attend daily Mass, Pell called their bluff, accepted their resignations, filled the seminary with new faculty — and never looked back.
