The Truth About “A.K.A. Jane Roe”

The Truth About “A.K.A. Jane Roe”

A new documentary on FX purports that Norma McCorvey, the plaintiff “Jane Roe” in the 1973 Roe v Wade Supreme Court decision that decriminalized abortion in all 50 states in all stages of pregnancy—lied about being pro-life after all. The main irony of this is Norma was used as a trophy by the National Abortion Rights Action League, and by Texas law school graduate Sarah Weddington who trawled for pregnant women looking for abortions—and who successfully brought the case to the Supreme Court. None of her 2017 obituaries mention having been phony as a pro-lifer. None of her close friends in the pro-life movement buy any of this nonsense Posthumously, Norma is being used by the producers of a very deceptive FX documentary, titled “AKA Jane Roe,” which I review in this video.

Points Covered

  1. How can the makers of “AKA Jane Roe” say with a straight face that they did not exploit and manipulate Norma McCorvey in her very last days?
  2. If the pro-life movement “wrote checks to her” and told her what to say, as the documentary claims, do they expect the audience to believe that Norma did the many interviews for free and got absolutely no coaching to get across the narrative they wanted to tell?
  3. Pretend Norma McCorvey was simply a very good liar to both sides of the abortion battle. At best, it’s a wash. It has nothing to do with what an abortion is, and whether it kills an innocent human being.
  4. This film exploits a fragile, broke, vulnerable woman, shooting her breathing with great difficulty, making sure her oxygen tube is working with sound editing amplifies her labored wheezing.
  5. The camera records her final good-byes and I love yous on her deathbed, and…they include footage of her corpse at her funeral. An outrage.
  6. Ex-pro-life leader, now Never Trumper, Rev. Rob Schenk comes off as smarmy and self-serving, apologizing for what “we” did to women like Norma. As Tonto said to the Lone Ranger, “Who do you mean we, paleface?”
  7. Rev. Schenk is now the kind of evangelical the NYT, CNN, and NPR can get behind. Which is to say, he lost his way.
  8. Stay tuned for the historically accurate upcoming movie “Roe v Wade” directed by Nick Loeb, starring Jon Voight and Robert Davi.

#182: The Resurrection of the Body?—Dr. Scott Hahn

 

#182: The Resurrection of the Body?—Dr. Scott Hahn

The mortality rate has been holding steady at 100% since the dawn of human history. And yet most of us walk around assuming that an endless flow of tomorrows is owed to us. 

That’s a lie.

Another lie is that after we die, our “souls go to heaven” and live a kind of sweet angelic life on clouds, strumming harps forevermore. The Creed affirms something quite different: “I believe in the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.”

Our bodies are indispensable to us as humans. At the Last Day, we get glorified, spiritual bodies. For the baptised, the body is the temple of the Holy Spirit and deserves great respect after death. My long time friend (30 years this summer Dr. Scott Hahn, has written an incredible new book, Hope to Die: The Christian Meaning of Death and the Resurrection of the Body, with Emily Stimpson Chapman.

 

Talk about much needed!

In this episode you will learn

  • How the overspirituaized version of the afterlife crept into Christian consciousness
  • The history of cremation, why it has been traditionally condemned by the Church, and what has happened since 1963 when it was suddenly permitted
  • How Jesus bodily—which is to say real—death on the cross frees us from the bondage of the fear of death.
  • The two kinds of death
  • Why “souls in heaven” before the Last Day are missing something essential until the resurrection of their bodies
  • How the witness of the early Christians caring for, and burying, their beloved dead help convert a heartless Roman empire
  • How Hollywood’s new obsession with zombie shows reflects, despite obvious errors, a basic dimension of what God reveals about the afterlife.

Red, Blue, & the Other Five Pills

Red, Blue, & the Other Five Pills

Most people are familiar with the metaphor of the pills from the 1999 movie “The Matrix.”

In the movie, the hero Neo, played by Keanu Reeves can either take the red or the blue pill. Taking the latter mean he stays ignorant of the massive computer simulation around him and humanity. Taking the former means he has his eyes open to the truth, and all it implies.

In this video, I set the record straight about some confusion that has set in about the meaning of these pills. I argue there are seven pills throughout life, not two.

Points Covered

The red pill has now been co-opted by the Left and turned into a conspiracy theory term, or something that signals that you’re an alt-right misogynist or whatever.
The seven pills throughout life, in order, are:
  1. the brown pill (fallen human nature)
  2. the white pill, (the grace of Baptism)
  3. the blue pill (worldly, secular thinking)
  4. the red pill (sudden insight into difficult but liberating truths)
  5. the black pill (despair and depression, anxiety, crisis of meaning)
  6. the gold pill (the sacramental return (or entry into) to Christ and His Church
  7. the mysterious seventh pill (because it’s heaven, it cannot be described only hinted at)
Two concrete examples of blue vs red pill thinking: regarding Pope Francis and the CCP virus lockdown
The pills metaphor involves the mysterious interplay between divine providence and our free will.
Which pills do you want, and why? The choice is yours.

#181: From PickUp Artist to Chastity Mentor—Roosh V

 

#181: From PickUp Artist to Chastity Mentor—Roosh V

Daryush “Roosh” Valizadeh used to be the world’s most influential Pick Up Artist (PUA). He wrote over a dozen books on how to seduce and fornicate with young women with greater confidence and efficacy. Many thousands of young men around the world read his blog, bought his books, and attended his events to “get good at game.”

But over time, the whole glittery enterprise lost its shine and appeal. Roosh felt emptier than before. Each sexual exploit seemed to deepen the void he sought to fill. It’s an old story, but everyone who lives it swears it’s utterly unique and “first” to himself. Sin is that way, especially the soul-bending nature of sexual sin.

After a number of setbacks and disillusionments—and the unexpected death of Roosh’s younger sister to breast cancer in 2018—the darkness and emptiness grew to its darkest and deepest. And so Roosh did something radical and unforeseen.

He prayed. (“I had to google ‘how to pray’ he admits.) 

God was faithful to this cry of the heart for help and consolation. Today, poco a poco, Roosh is a changed man who continues to grow in both faith and ongoing repentance. He’s writing a memoir and plotting his next move, but this time relying more on his discernment of the will of God than his own resources and plans. 

Pay attention. Roosh V will become much better known for his work on behalf of Jesus Christ than he was of the enemy of our souls. Most of what you read about him online was written by his enemies.

In this episode you will learn

  • How and why he got into blogging about being a PUA
  • The personal defects that inclined him to an embedded lifestyle of sexual sin
  • Why his methodology only works for broken or wounded men, and is successful only in bedding fallen women
  • The role of fatherlessness in promiscuity
  • The reaction(s) of his former followers
  • Why he has no fear of the future or “being somebody” thanks to his friendship with Christ in the Armenian Orthodox Church.
  • The role of daily prayer as antidote to sexual chaos and loneliness

Can You Stay Catholic in College?

Can You Stay Catholic in College?

In this video, I talk about one of the best, or at least most common, places to lose your Catholic faith…

Points Covered

  • In this video, I look at the historical event that led to the breakdown of reliable Catholic higher education: the 1967 Land o’ Lakes statement, headed by Father Ted Hesburgh, CSC, the late longtime President of Notre Dame University.
  • Another high-profile signatory was then Father Theodore McCarrick now known as Uncle Ted the Molester the highest-ranking homosexual predator in US Catholic Church history
  • Oddly, another signatory of the land of lakes statement was a guy called John Cogley, a leftist scholar representing the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions. It’s not quite clear what he was doing there at all, except that he was a celebrated innerlekshuk.
  • He had been religion editor of “The New York Times” and was a ghostwriter of John F. Kennedy’s infamous 1960 speech to Houston Baptists in which he basically promised to be a bad Catholic and to never violate the sacred dogma of the separation of church and state. Cogley later dissented from “Humanae Vitae” and ended up becoming an Episcopalian
  • Universities have become bad idea factories.
  • Young Christian freshman walk in the front doors and they have no idea that for the next four years or so they are going to be propagandized day and night by a consistent set of isms, beyond the obvious threat to faith posed by atheism

 

Here are five examples

RELATIVISM, which was described as a dictatorship by then Pope Benedict XVI…

SCIENTISM, which is a Corruption of the scientific method that assumes that science alone is the Arbiter of Ultimate Reality…

MATERIALISM, which presupposes that matter is the Ultimate Reality and therefore there is no God, no angels, and no soul…

FEMINISM, which is a hatred of femininity and a frontal attack on the institution of marriage and on men in general.

SKEPTICISM, especially in it’s radical form, is a popular product sold by colleges and universities. You’re supposed to doubt everything and everyone and question authority at all levels except of course…the authority of the professor and the expensive textbook.

The reason Catholic universities, on the whole, are more injurious to Faith than secular ones is that there is an expectation that a Catholic University is going to reflect the teachings of the Catholic church and will faithfully reflect these teachings in the campus environment as a whole. This rarely happens.

Freeing young minds from the rigid fundamentalism of the Catholic Church and accepting the ideas of the sexual revolution and all the attendant perversions where all done in the name of academic freedom.

This global house arrest too shall pass. But the choice of where to go to university—or not—will remain

#180: The Crisis of Male Friendships—Adam Minehan and David Niles

#180: The Crisis of Male Friendships—Adam Minehan and David Niles

Men tend to be good at doing things together, in the sense of separately together like watching a sports game or fishing, hunting, poker, billiards, etc. Men tend not to be good at spending time communicating face to face with each other.

The idea of male friendship has undergone a shift for the worse in the wake of the turbulent, and failed, sexual revolution. It’s not just relationships between men and women that have suffered; relations between men have also suffered. Men, Christian or otherwise, don’t want to “get too close” out of fear that it seems either gay or something only women do. But real friendship is built on virtue, and the root of virtue is the Latin vir, or male adult. What are men afraid of? Adam Minehan and David Niles, creators and hosts of The Catholic Man Show podcast, are lifelong friends and talk about the lost art of manly closeness.

In this episode you will learn

  • The biblical basis for strong male friendships
  • Why men must be careful and intentional about who they befriend and admire
  • Examples of saints 
  • Why men are not “called to get their families to heaven” without first seeking deep friendship with Christ 
  • Why Jesus Christ is the exemplar of manly friendship (hint: His reaction upon hearing of the death of Lazarus
  • Why friendship is interlinked with discipleship
  • How contemporary Catholic men must overcome the lost social structures of the past, like bowling leagues, choirs, the Boy Scouts, civic clubs, etc.

Resources mentioned in this episode

  • True Friendship: Where Virtue Becomes Happiness by John Cuddeback
  • The Confessions by St. Augustine of Hippo
  • Catholic Man Show website 
  • Bible verses:“The man of integrity walks securely, but he who takes crooked paths will be found out.” —Proverbs 10:9“Wounds from a friend can be trusted, but an enemy multiplies kisses. One who is full loathes honey from the comb, but to the hungry even what is bitter tastes sweet.”—Proverbs 27:6

The Top Seven Liturgical Abuses

 

[arve url=”https://youtu.be/pRF8nFg3D9s” /]

The Top Seven Liturgical Abuses 

Now that some dioceses are allowing greater access to the Sacraments—especially, in some places, the source and summit of our Christian life, the Holy Eucharist, in this video, I put together my wish list of seven things that should be dropped from the Mass.
By things, I mean liturgical abuses. Don’t believe me. Believe the relevant official documents of the Church. The answer to liturgical abuse, to borrow from Richard John Neuhaus, is fidelity, fidelity, and fidelity.
Not always easy, but simple.
BONUS ITEM: No more flimsy, throwaway missalettes.
As Peter Kreeft says,: missalettes produce Christianettes.

POINTS COVERED

Here’s my basic wish list of banishment:
  • Bad music. My bad I mean sappy, saccharine, syrupy, sentimental, and schmaltzy. A pentuple alliteration! (Think lavender-tainted Broadway show ballads.)I hereby call for a moratorium on the music of the St. Louis Jesuits, revolutionaries of bad churchy music. The Church has suffered under such ditties as “Come to the Water,” “Here I Am Lord,” “One Bread One Body” for two generations, and that is enough, my friends. One of the St. Louis Jesuits, Dan Schutte, who bequeathed to us “Table of Plenty,” left the Jesuits and the priesthood and moved in with his boyfriend. Another, Tim Mannion, not only didn’t go through with ordination, he left Christianity for Buddhism. And it’s not just this group that should be banished to LGBT rallies and yoga retreats.No, they have spin-off impersonators, like David Haas, who gifted us with “We Are Called,” and “Now We Remain,” — and the Protestant Marty Haugen, who gave us “Gather Us In” (mega-cringe) and “Shepherd Me, O God.”All of these people do their information from the grandfather revolutionary liberal Catholic music, the late Ray Repp, may he rest in peace.

Mr. Repp practically invented the guitar folk Mass and ended up “marrying” his longtime boyfriend, something the mainstream Catholic media glossed over in their glowing obit notices.

Am I saying that one’s liberal theology will affect one’s musical compositions, and maybe one’s life decisions? Yes, I am.

  • Hand-holding during the Our Father.  No more. Period. There’s no provision for it in the rubrics and it makes a lot of people who go to Mass, like single women, uncomfortable. Especially awkward squeezie poo that people do at the end after they lift their hands up for the doxology. Blech.
  • Introducing yourself to your neighbor in front of you, behind you, to your left, and to your right before Mass begins. I know it seems like a nice and Christian, but there’s no provision for it in the rubrics, and the Church is our mother. She knows best.
  • The kiss of peace? I know it’s in the rubrics the Ordinary Form, but my oh my, it’s awfully distracting…moments before reception of the God of the universe we’re back to socializing. In some parishes, the kiss of Peace has become the highest possible good, the most wonderful soul-touching, arm-stretching, high-fiving, aisle-crossing moments of human emotion.  And another reason to go to the traditional Latin Mass just once see what’s missing and what’s not missing.
  • Clapping during Mass. And this is a request to priests. Not only do we not need to be thanked for coming to Sunday Mass, but we don’t really need to be clapping for the Children’s Choir and the Adult Choir and the wonderful Lectors, and missionary fundraiser, and the banner ministry.
  • I know it’s permitted in the Novus Ordo Missae, but can we have a two-year moratorium on Communion in the hand? Over 80% of the fathers of the Second Vatican Council voted down Communion in the hand. The only reason we have it is because after Vatican II, Pope Paul VI responded to disobedience with indulgence rather than discipline. Communion in the hand was a liturgical abuse practiced in Belgium, the Netherlands, Canada, and parts of the United States. The evidence is overwhelming that communion in the hand has led to a diminishment in belief in the real presence.
  • Altar girls. In 1994 an ailing Pope John Paul II signed off on altar girls—a prudential decision that has worsened the priestly vocation crisis. Altar girls damaged the minor leagues of the priesthood majors.

#179: The Nine Lives of Modernism—Dr. WIlliam Marshner

#179: The Nine Lives of Modernism—Dr. William Marshner

St. Pope Pius X called Modernism “the synthesis of all heresies” and strong condemned it in his 1907 Encyclical Pascendi. You’ve heard Modernist ideas before: Jesus is extremely important and special, but not the unique Savior; truth is not immutable; you don’t need the Church, only the Holy Spirit working in your conscience; the Bible is inspired and inerrant only when it comes to spiritual truths and lessons. You get the idea.

Dr. William Marshner, professor emeritus of philosophy at Christendom College (where he taught for 38 years!) has been teaching and writing about Modernism from every conceivable angle. It was an honor to sit down with him and learn the history of and magisterial response to, this pernicious set of “isms.”

In this episode you will learn

  • Biographical sketches of the first Modernists, like Alfred Loisy, SJ, Baron Frederick Von Hügel, George Tyrell, SJ, and Maurice Blondel
  • How Modernism was reborn as Neo-Modernism in the 1950s and 60s
  • How the sunny optimism of the 1960s, and the indirect influence of Neo-Modernist periti (experts), led to some ambiguities in the documents of the Second Vatican Council
  • The irony of the fact of “Trad dissent:” the early Modernists were all deeply attached to the Latin Mass
  • Specific examples of Modernist ideas in contemporary theology
  • How Modernism led to dissent in the sexual sphere
  • The importance of solid catechesis and thinking with the Church (sentire cum ecclesia, said St. Ignatius of Loyola)

How to Build Immunity From Political Correctness

 

How to Build Immunity From Political Correctness

In this video, I review the origins of the term “politically correct” and connect them to today’s headlines and public discourse, particularly for Catholics.

Points Covered

  • Political correct was a tool by the extreme Left to keep people in line and to “encourage” them to toe the party line—the Communist Party line.
  • UnPC speech came to be synonymous with a speech that deviated from the Party ideology, that that made the speaker known as a whistleblower, a troublemaker, aka a counterrevolutionary.
  • Disciples of Jesus Christ must, by definition, counterrevolutionary.
  • The media elites, political oligarchs, institutions of “higher learning,” and the Hollywood dream factory, think they have a lock on the grand narrative. But do they?
  • Our Big Tech betters are terrified of losing their hold on the narrative. So if you create and post a video that goes after a sacred story cow, our Silicon Valley overlords will censor you, or demonetize your effort.
  • Recent examples of CCP virus news and information censorship, including from doctors.
  • Dr. Anthony Fauci told the host of a Snap Chat podcast fittingly called “Good Luck America” two weeks ago that quarantined people may hook up for casual sex through apps like Tinder if they’re careful about such a “calculated risk.” But beaches, churches, schools, and the economy, must be shut down!
  • The rise of the internet—for all its problems—has meant that like-minded people can connect around the world and have open discussions that may be officially forbidden by the media elites
  • People who try to enforce political correctness count on one thing to keep it all going. And that is fear.
  • The Bible commands us so often to “be not afraid” because God knows our propensity for fear, which is the opposite of faith.
  • Perfect love casts out not some fear or most of it, but ALL of it.
  • A fearful populace is a populace very easy to manage. That secret, once exposed, can be defeated.
  • If you want to be a follower of Jesus Christ, at least as a Catholic, you must be willing at times to feel uncomfortable emotions and do the right thing anyway.
