No smoke. No mirrors. Just a simple, totally “orthodox” explanation of key Old and New Testament Scriptures and the divine connections between the Bible, Jesus, Mary, the Evangelists, the Early Church Fathers, the constant teachings of the Catholic Church, and the authentic beliefs and practices of the Christian faithful.

Most people have probably never heard, read, or seen this information before – but it’s all true and it’s all right there in the Bible, for anyone to plainly see.

Some notes from a priest about Catholic disciplines and common sense

A good man puts you at ease; a good priest puts you at ease, but often challenges you as well. A good man makes you laugh; a good priest makes you laugh, but sometimes makes you cry. A good man helps you reach success in life; a good priest helps you reach success, but he also prepares you for heaven. A Catholic priest must be a good man, certainly, but God calls His priests to a greater personal sanctity. A really good priest never ceases to call others, as well, to sanctity.

The Death of Moral Community

By Patrick J. Buchanan

“The opponents (of same-sex marriage) have no case other than ignorance and misconception and prejudice.”

So writes Richard Cohen in his celebratory column about ’s role in legalizing gay marriage in New York state.

Now, given that no nation in 20 centuries of Christendom legalized , and, in this century, majorities in all 31 states where it has been on the ballot have rejected it, Cohen is pretty much saying that, since the time of Christ, Western has been an endless Dark Age dominated by moral ignoramuses and bigots.

For the belief that homosexuality is unnatural and immoral and same-sex marriage an Orwellian absurdity has always been part of the moral code of . Gen. George Washington ordered active homosexuals drummed out of his army. Thomas Jefferson equated homosexuality with rape. Not until 2003 did the declare homosexual acts a protected right.

How is greek mythology different from the bible?

Q: How is Greek mythology different from the bible?
Weren´t they both created by humans? Weren´t they both written by humans? Don´t they both tell incredibly over-thought morals? Aren´t they both explaining to you the world as a “science for dummies” book?

A: The Bible is a prophetic book, predicting many, many years in advance, thousands of events … all of which have (so far) truly come to pass … just as described.

Most of those prophecies describe the earthly life and the historical, divine person-hood of Jesus Christ, the promised Redeemer of all mankind.

Since no other book of any kind has ever been able to accurately predict the future, it’s clear that God is the true author of the Bible … and man merely serves as his scribe.

By comparison, Greek mythology was simply an appealing way for ancient man to try to explain natural events and processes.

At best, Greek mythology is based on the fanciful accounts of ancient, supernatural beings who, though powerful, were not truly god(s).

The Bible likely speaks of these beings here:

Genesis 6:4 Now giants were upon the earth in those days. For after the sons of God went in to the daughters of men, and they brought forth children, these are the mighty men of old, men of renown.

Most of these (Nephilim) were destroyed by Noah’s flood, but others survived, and along with their offspring, caused big problems in later years. Goliath is probably the best known of them all.

In so far as the objective of all sacred scripture (the Bible): The Bible does not explain how the heavens go … but how to go to heaven.

Perhaps that might constitute incredible moral over thought to you … but to me … it’s just common sense.

The president of the Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities (ACCU) must be an idiot!

accu

SOUTH BEND, Indiana, May 11, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The president of the Association of Catholic Colleges & Universities (ACCU) has sided with the University of Notre Dame’s president in stating that the U.S. bishops’ policy is unclear on whether Catholic institutions are forbidden from honoring non-Catholic pro-abortion politicians.

(Editor’s note: All of which goes to prove that even a bushel full of college diplomas is no substitute for good old common sense!)
