If Anathematizing Islam is "not who we are", then, who are we? National Security devoid of any National Anathemas means Security Measures enforced only against ourselves and our liberty and freedom.
The abandonment and non-use of the Anathema Option is at the root of our own Religious Suicide, National Suicide, Cultural Suicide and Western Civilization Suicide.
If a Marxist Useful Idiot knew he was a Useful Idiot he wouldn't be a Useful Idiot. Similarly, Ungodly Never Trumpers don't even know how they promote Ungodliness.
When Politics drives Religion in Islamic Nations, the whole world is safer; when Religion drives Politics in Islamic Nations, the whole world is menaced.
True Catholicism is the most Extremist religion on earth. So is "true" Islam, the other way. And, Marxism and American Constitutionalism are extremist political opposites.
Draining the Washington Swamp unveils all the venomous Clintonistas and Obamunists of the Shadow Government, running the Deep-State Politics of graft, blackmail, take-down and rigged elections.
We were Nailing Down the Coffin Lid on American Capitalism, Building True Socialist Justice and Saving the Planet, and He Stopped the Whole Process!
Globalist, anti-American Judges and Justices who consistently oppose the very Constitution they falsely swore to uphold and are charged in office to obey, protect and work from within.
Saudi Arabia, Egypt and other Moslem nations so fear ISIS that they will ally with despised America and Israel against it. But never forget that Barbarian Allies are still Barbarians, at the core.
Globalism, the UN, the EU, Marxism and Islam all blur dividing lines to force the world into one impossible hodgepodge mixture of cultures, from the most civilized to the most barbaric.
The ultimate aim of Marxism is not "fairness" or "justice", but increased unbalance, disorder and chaos.
The Establishment-Owned Deep-State and their Media Leaks Versus President Trump and America As Constituted.
Diversity, Plurality, Multi-Culturalism, etc., acting against distinct religions, distinct nations, distinct borders of every kind, even distinct individual being. Against Distinction Itself.
If a critter walks like a duck, and talks like a duck, and is constantly seen in the company of ducks, it may be proper to assume that the critter just might be a duck. Including Catholic critters.
In the Evolutionary Trail of Modern Scientism, Marxism points back to Freudianism, and farther back to Darwinism. Was that where Modern Man initially took Science off the rails?
Spineless Leaders who push rather than pull, who lead from the rear of the column, and who are too weak or cowardly to actually confront any enemy.
For once, a "Resistance" Grass-Roots Movement that is for Culture and not against it; for Magisterial Teaching, and against Error. (And isn't that already Counter-Cultural?)
Fake News, False Doctrine, the rise of Indifferentism through Diversity, and the ultimate Blessing Of Evil, all done in the Face of Unchanging and Unchangeable Truth.
Getting the populace all exercised to grow the government over yet another political false premise involving yet another imaginary Constitutional "Right".
The Red Left consistently feeds the "Islam Is Peace" lie, blames the Right, Capitalism, white people or the USA for acts of Jihad, to help feed and grow Pre-Revolution Chaos and Disorder.
The only realistic way to "Drain The Swamp" is to brutally club anti-Constitution Government Officials back under their own Constitution, or out of Government altogether.
While responsible "Leaders" look the other way, or pretend not to see, The World is taking all good institutions down from the inside. That is what the new Anti-Culture is all about.
Site Traffic Statistics since the site began
How can an Identifiable Culture last if children are taught to "make up their own minds" about Cult? Indifference toward cult eventually destroys all culture.
The universally believed lies pushed by evil men and their Useful Idiots and Agent Provocateurs, "Revolutionizing" human culture away from Simple Common Sense and Natural Law.
The Managed Decline of the Catholic Church in America, like the Managed Decline of American Constitutionalism, is being treacherously orchestrated FROM THE INSIDE.
Until Jesus, Religion and Politics were Combined. Jesus hit history with a force that split time itself, established the New Calendar and Split Worldly and Ecclesial Government Apart.
All the evidence points to a deep Moslem-Marxist Barbaric Collusion against religions, nations, and even civilization itself.
False charges of racism by the real racists; of sexism by the real sexists; of whatever-phobia by the real whatever-phobics. Unmasking the Perps.
Determined detractors of existing Doctrine, Law and Order, who never leave the Institution they despise, are Unrecognized Revolutionaries, who intend to Take Over, or, Bring The Institution Down.
The three divisions in the Church Hierarchy: Those who champion the Truth, those who oppose Him, and those who avoid Him. The Opposers and the Avoiders are Truth Hating Catholics.
The American Citizenry has been infected with America hating Americans from her birth. But this national self-hatred really took off after the birth of Communism.
Once, Civilized Moslems, Educated Women and Peaceful, Attractive, Beautiful Cities predominated in lands where now we see little other than Typical Islamic Barbarity.
Social Darwinsim applied Biological Evolution to Human Societies; Neo-Freudianism emphasized Human Culture over Individual Biology; Marxism emphasized the Collective over the Individual.
Note that in every so-called Trump Flip-Flop, Trump winds up in a much better relationship and/or a much stronger negotiating position with some former adversary.
Our Globalist Pope leads the attack on all National Sovereignty to bring an end to all national borders in favor of Total Global Disorder, ostensibly for the good of the Planet and the Poor.

Kiss the notions of a "Post-Christian World" and a "Post-American World" goodbye. We may be seeing a Massive Global Turning Away from Imminent Global Disaster.
"Do the Right Thing." Advice you should have gotten from your Father, Mother, Priest, Elders, Teachers. etc. A thing is either Right or Wrong. It's not Democratic; it's Right or Wrong.
Religion orders human behavior. Politics control human behavior. Politics Defined is where Eternal Truth meets Temporary Worldly Ambitions and Rulers.
If all human DNA traces back to Mitochondrial Eve and Y-Chromosomal Adam, then the religion of Darwinism and the "Naturalness" of the homosexual condition are both refuted.
No one seems to recognize the Progressive Marxist Politics that are displacing the Constitution, aimed at eventual establishment of another typical Communist Dictatorship in America.
Rights are Innies; Responsibilities are Outies. Feelings are Innies; Realities are Outies. Personal Comfort is an Innie; Guiding Principles are Outies. Sin is an Innie; Doctrine is an Outie.
After all their public lies covering up Obama administration gun-running collusion with Al Qaeda closing with the Stevens assassination, they now lie again to Break a Presidency.
Globalist Revolutionary Educators are systematically breaking down Human Civilization to replace it with a new Planet of the Atheists.
So long as the Senate, the House and Courts, Judges and Justices up and down the line are driven by Political Party Agenda and not by the Constitution or the Law as written, Truth does not matter.
The Political Parties will never repeal it. Repeal it Hell; Kill it, and the States and Private Sector will scramble for the business. Strike it down as flagrantly unconstitutional and illegal law.
The Freedom Caucus was right; but Dead Right; the rest of the Party Opposed them. Trump is making them unite, as a Party, while fracturing a unified Marxocrat Party.
President Trump's Deal Making is out manipulating the professional manipulators of the Washington Establishment Club, and picking apart their Political Parties.

Is there some reason you ignore my friend requests and messages on facebook? I keep trying to talk to you and you keep ignoring me. What have I done that offends you?

Please accept my apologies; it has nothing to do with you. My FaceBook account was hacked or compromised in some way by an identity thief pretending to be me. Since that experience, I no longer communicate with anyone using FaceBook.
See the comments after the Contact Me page, and the comments after the Vic on FaceBook page. If you are interested in where I caught the guy, see also the comments after the I Told You So page and the Shaharokh Sharifazi page.
It's nothing personal; I just don't chat and jabber on social media any more. Here, I do. Nothing gets posted on this website by anyone other than me. There is no real control over your own account in social media, and that's the reason.

I love your site, and I've been trying to read as much as possible over the last few weeks. I agree with most everything you've written, but I've struggled with my faith over the years and am not exactly sure what to believe in anymore.
I've recently read the work of Ian Stevenson who made a living studying the claims of reincarnation, and I believe he has made a pretty good case for it (along with numerous cases for it). In addition, there are a multitude of Near-Death-Experiences in which the experiences not only taught reincarnation, but all the experiences seem to suggest that while there is a God, there appears to be no such place as hell, or even Satan.
However, I despise the New Age philosophy because they are almost all leftists, and preach that there is no such thing as evil, which I strongly disagree with. I find myself identifying much more with the Catholic faith then with any New Age religion, but, I can't seem to get my mind of of these two major points, which both are in direct opposition to the Churches teaching.
I was just wondering what your thoughts are on the subject of reincarnation and NDEs. Is there evidence that suggests that reincarnation isn't real and NDEs are just a product of the mind?

Sorry for the delay in responding, but I have been having computer problems.
The difference between Catholicism and non-Christian, non-Jewish religions is vast. When different kinds of Christians and different kinds of Jews argue religious points with each other, they argue about differing recognitions and interpretations of that which they all recognize as Revelation. It is a body of knowledge revealed to man by God. It is not so with other religious belief systems.
In all other religions, man sought God, and came up with some hopeful representation of what they thought God should or could be. In Judeo-Christianity, alone, God came to man. In no other religion is this true. He Who made it all, Who made man, also made freedom, or liberty, and placed it in the heart of man, out of love.
wanted man to love God, and love is only possible in the presence of
liberty, because if love is not given freely, it is not love. But
freedom allows wrong decisions; the propensity of love given freely
accompanies the propensity of hate, and of wrong choices freely made.
At first, He walked and talked with man in the Garden. After the fall, He came to Noah, to save a remnant. He tested Abraham. He sent Johah to save Niniveh. He inspired Moses, gave him the Law and equipped him as a leader. Finally, He sent Himself, in the "person" of Jesus the Redeemer, to take upon Himself our guilt, to free us from our sin, if we would be free of it, and to show us the Way.
For those looking for worldly proofs, much of salvation history as recorded in Scripture is solidly backed up by archaeological and non-Scriptural historical evidences. For those looking for logical proofs, the ancient Greeks, and perhaps others, arrived at the conclusion of the singularity of God from the Primal First Mover argument, described in the faith versus atheism page. This argument says that even if there be other gods, they must have been created by the original god. Something had to be first.
It is not by science or by logic that you will find ultimate salvation, but by faith, hope and love. Read the first chapter of John. It's all right there.
Regarding reincarnation and near death experiences, all I can say is, the only supporting evidences are ephemeral, which is to say, not physical. It consists solely of reports by fallible human beings about experiences and or dreams. Whether any particular event as reported was inspired by God, or by angels, or by demons, or merely by the mind that told the story is indeterminate.
For me, the test of whether such an imagining or dream or story might have validity is whether it supports or contradicts Revelation - the protected deposit of faith from which we draw hope. The Revelation does not change. (There is no reincarnation in the Revelation.) If the event or report supports or at least does not contradict Revelation, which is to say, it does not ad to it, subtract from it or change it, then, it may be true.
Regarding the existence of Satan
and Hell, Bishop Sheen and others have pointed out the fact that Satan
is never happier and never makes more progress in the world he rules
than when his potential victims do not even believe that he exists.

Thanks for your response, I appreciate it. I will look into the archaeological evidence. I enjoy reading your site, and look forward to reading more in the future.

To Eric, re your submission Thu Apr 07 2017:
Your comment seemed more appropriate to the Mitochondrial Eve page than to this general web activity log, so I put it after that Webpage. The link will take you there.
Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.

"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
