Pro-Life Martyr Jim Pouillon

By |2022-06-26T15:47:26+00:00June 26th, 2022|Theology|

Even the Wikipedia page for Jim Pouillon reads that "the murder of Jim Pouillon occurred on September 11, 2009... Pouillon was killed while protesting against abortion in front of Owosso High School in Owosso, Michigan."  The man who killed Pouillon is named Harlan James Drake.  That same day, he shot a businessman named Michael Fuoss at a different location.  Fuoss was also killed.  May God rest his soul. Because the two events were unrelated, and because the second shooting had nothing to do with the abortion debate, one might argue that Pouillon just happened to be at "the wrong place at the wrong time," namely, in front of an abortion center.  Furthermore, I [...]

Why Murder of an Unborn Child May Be Worse than Murder of An Adult

By |2022-06-24T15:51:56+00:00June 23rd, 2022|Theology|

Here's four ways abortion is possibly worse than the murder of an adult: 1. The level of innocence. I am not saying any babies are conceived without original sin. I'm simply saying they have no actual sin on their hands at the moment of their slaughter, unlike adult victims of homicide. 2. Abortion is a bloody sacrifice to demons as a mockery of the Mass.  The Mass is an unbloody sacrifice to God. 3. Every abortion drags a dozen people to hell, regardless of where that baby goes (heaven, or much more likely—limbo.) 4. By the sheer number of these murders, chaos is introduced into a society and demons' power [...]

An Emergency Confirmation

By |2022-06-22T15:12:39+00:00June 22nd, 2022|Life|

A friend who I went to seminary with over a decade ago left before ordination and got married.  He's been living outside Colorado with his wife.  She got pregnant and in the ultrasound for their first baby, they found the baby had Dextro-Transposition of the Great Arteries. This is where a baby needs an arterial switch surgery after birth to change the way the arteries connect to the heart.  The two places offered to them for this invasive surgery was San Francisco or Denver.  They chose to come to Denver, the same town my buddy attended seminary (even though he was studying for a different diocese over 10 years ago, [...]

Balancing Self-Confidence with Humility

By |2022-06-21T15:33:49+00:00June 21st, 2022|Theology|

One of the things I find fascinating about Special Forces guys in the US Military is that they are usually soft-spoken.  One of the things I find fascinating about fully-certifiable narcissists is that they are always the opposite:  Whereas narcissists frequently speak about themselves in a self-centered manner, they secretly have extremely low self-confidence. So, what is the relationship between self-confidence and humility?  The pious answer goes like this:  "One should have confidence in God, not oneself."  While this is true, it does not take into consideration the difficult balance that St. Thomas Aquinas makes between magnanimity and humility.  In the Second Part of the Second Part his Summa Theologiae, St. Thomas [...]

Advice to Young Courting Catholics

By |2022-06-13T14:52:32+00:00June 14th, 2022|Theology|

If you want to marry someone, you need to have more than just the "checklists" covered of orthodoxy and wanting-lots-of-kids.  You actually need to be in love (at least somewhat!) with someone of the opposite sex.  And they should be (somewhat!) in love with you.  You only got one shot at this, and you really don't want an annulment.  Go slowly and deliberately in courting.  Marry someone you love, but don't look for someone who is perfect, for perfect people don't exist.  Yes, the checklist should exist as far as being a traditional Catholic, but there has to be some "chemistry" with the other person.  So, don't "settle" for a [...]

FACE Laws that Both Hurt and Help

By |2022-06-12T15:23:43+00:00June 12th, 2022|Life|

p/c LSN.  The above is an arrest of Fr. Fidelis, myself and Will Goodman in New Jersey with Red Rose Rescue in July 2019. In the 1980s, the great heroes of the pro-life movement were those associated with "Operation Rescue" and other pro-lifers who locked themselves peacefully to abortion centers. They were often beat up by police until they released themselves from a PVC pipe connecting themselves to others with a seat-belt release found only in that PVC pipe. Though rattled, they usually only had to do a short time in jail for this. However, Bill Clinton passed the FACE laws which made it not a misdemeanor but a felony [...]
