On April 30, 2015 Andrew Bieszad penned an article [here] which lays the axe to the very roots of the misconceptions which the Church, the politicians and the complicit media never tire of repeating; e.g. that Islam is a religion of peace and other variants, thereof. We need to think about our saints of past days if we are to be honest in our assessment of that which is called a religion, has so many adherents and has Continue Reading →

Catholics in America: A Tale of Two Flags | Catholic World Report – Global Church news and views

JFK’s ‘Speech on Faith’ – The Conscience: False Dichotomy Part II – Truth and Charity Forum

JFK’s ‘Speech on Faith’ – The Conscience: False Dichotomy Part I – Truth and Charity Forum

Germane to a discussion on conscience is John F. Kennedy, who, as a politician, ironically promoted an arguably anti-Catholic mentality in several of his views on the moral conscience and the role of religion in the public square.

It has a hunch that the threatened target will likely either make concessions to avoid losing a war, or, if war breaks out, the resulting political gains will be worth the military costs to achieve victory.

Liberals Lies: Stalin Committed No Crimes – Conservative Hideout 2.0
