Redefining Marriage Means Rewriting Dictionaries…

Merriam-Webster is going to have to update the next edition of its dictionary, at least if marriage redefiners have their way. Do you know what the words “monogamish,” “throuple,” and “wedlease” mean? If not, you soon will. After all, the power to redefine words is the power to redefine reality. Let’s start with “monogamish,” a...

Sins of Our Fathers: The Missing Link…

I've just watched the Newsnight Scotland discussion on the BBC documentary Sins of Our Fathers - exposing physical and sexual abuse at Fort Augustus Abbey, the prestigious Catholic school in the Highlands - broadcast last night, and available to watch for the next six days. Throughout the entire documentary (and again on Newsnight Scotland) there...

Catholic Herald & Homosexuality – A Marriage of Convenience?

Having spent some quite some time this week, in two telephone conversations with Madeleine Teahan, journalist with the Catholic Herald, as she wrote up her report on the Rob Flello MP & Co. attack on Catholic Truth, I was appalled to read her short report this morning, giving the majority of space to the Flello position and a short, inaccurate, quote...

Catholic MPs & (lack of) Conscience…

Update - 15th July, 2013 My reply to Rob Flello MP Original Report - 13th July, 2013 Yesterday I received a phone call from Robert Watts, Deputy Political Editor on the London Telegraph, asking if we are the Scottish group responsible for demanding the excommunication of Catholic MPs who voted in favour of same sex marriage. Apparently, there is a leaflet circulating to that...

Irish Abortion Bill Passed…

 Update - article submitted by blogger Leo... For He must reign, until He hath put all His enemies under His feet – 1 Corinthians 15:25 “With God and Jesus Christ excluded from political life, with authority derived not from God but from man, the very basis of that authority has been taken away, because the chief...

Guilt by Association …

Some time ago, A reader commented that Catholic Truth is not included in the list of British Catholic Blogs  (BCB) and remarked "you're probably too Catholic for them!" I took a quick look and agreed - there's everything up there from "Auntie Joanna" (Bogle) to Medjugorje. Some time later... I decided to approach the BCB and on 21 June, sent...

Priesthood: what’s it all about?

There's allegedly a secretive "gay lobby" that wields massive behind-the-scenes influence at the Vatican. Pope Francis himself appears to have confirmed it, during what was intented to be a private conversation with a delegation of Latin American religious orders. His words somehow got leaked, and although his visitors apologised, his press office hasn't denied that...

Abortion Comes To Ireland…

The Government has finalised the text of the landmark abortion legislation. The final legislation is not changed substantially from the earlier draft but the wording does:  increase the number of hospitals where abortions can be carried out;  alter what psychiatrists will be involved in assessments of suicidal pregnant women;  narrow the definition of the criminal offence of carrying...

A Foot In Both Camps…

“Catholic Answers” is an organization made up of lay apologists whose stated mission is to “Explain and Defend the Faith.” Despite a growing contingent of Tradition friendly personnel, Catholic Answers remains, for the most part, a staunch defender of all post-Conciliar novelties.  This is no more apparent than in the organization’s radio show, “Catholic...
