Last week, I was updating my personal facebook and came across an unfortunate entry into my "Favorite Quotes" from Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged. She and I have long since ceased being on speaking terms (although I still think it's a good story albeit with horrible morals), but seeing that quote reminded me of the first hint I… Continue reading Which Works of Mercy are right for you?
Last week for World Communications Day, Pope Francis released a statement saying that "fake news" is as old as the Garden of Eden. He urged the faithful to share information responsibly. He said that the spread of fake news leads to an increase of arrogance and hatred. He's right. Everyone went bananas about the statement. Fox,… Continue reading Hey Devil, You’re Fake News!
Today in Washington DC, about half a million people are marching up Constitution Avenue to protest the Supreme Court decision on Roe v. Wade, made 45 years ago. Since then, over 60 million children have died from what I will unapologetically call America's Holocaust. I realize that no mother makes this decision lightly, in my observation, it is almost… Continue reading My Favorite Pro-Life Organizations
It ain't easy being male. Not that I would know, but lately being a wife and a boy-mom, I've had a lot of sympathy for the less-fair sex. Feminism ran rampant, going so far beyond its noble beginnings with woman's suffrage and ended up shaping our entire culture into a place where genuine masculinity is… Continue reading Non-toxic Masculinity
When I woke up this morning at 2:15am to feed the baby, I scrolled through Facebook to stay awake for ten minutes, not imagining what I would find. I didn't sleep well the rest of the night, and like all of America, I haven't been mentally calm all day. I've been listening to the radio,… Continue reading Las Vegas: little things we can do
Just like most everyone else, I'm sick and tired of hearing about the NFL. As a friend told me last night, it's entertainers trying to get political, and SJWs jumping into football, which they care nothing about. It is a story that easily polarizes our country, and I believe that is exactly why it is… Continue reading Three stories more interesting than the NFL
After studying the Baltimore Catechism for eight years straight (thank you Seton Homeschool...) I had it pretty well drilled into my head that the pope was infallible. It has been a definite shock to me to learn that the infallibility of the Pontiff is more limited than I had suspected. The Filial Correction posted yesterday has the… Continue reading Filial Correction 1333: Pope John XXII
My unpopular opinion of the day: Michelle Carter was fairly sentenced, and perhaps shouldn't serve any time at all. https://peopledotcom.files.wordpress.com/2017/06/michelle-carter19.jpg?w=2000&h=1333You probably don't know her by name, but I guarantee you have heard her story. She is the girl from Massachusetts who was convicted of manslaughter for texting her boyfriend as he killed himself, encouraging, and… Continue reading Unpopular opinion: Michelle Carter got a fair sentence
