Catholic bishops forget that Biden is President-elect, not Pope-elect

This article contains news and liberal commentary. Joe Biden is about to become America’s second Catholic president. JFK was the first, and when Kennedy ran for president in 1960, his religion was controversial because some people worried electing him would put the Church in charge of our gove[...]

What a Trumper thinks of Biden voters

The author of this Facebook post (photo below) was a dean and professor of business at a private college, Virginia Wesleyan University, but no longer works there. Read story here and here.

SUNDAY REVELATIONS:Of Nuns And Popes

Is Pope Frank for Real? In 2012, the Vatican accused U.S. nuns of taking up  such “radical feminist themes” as social welfare and political action.  The Romans saw  income inequality as a distraction from Roman Catholicism’s issues of contraception, abortion and same-sex marriage. There[...]

SUNDAY REVELATIONS: Has Jesus Been Reborn?

Has Jesus been Reborn? About six years ago a 10-year-old girl was raped. This “Maria” may have fulfilled the prophecy of a virgin birth since she was too young for normal birth and was forced to give birth via C-section. We do not yet know if Maria’s son is the second coming.  CHU[...]

SUNDAY REVELATIONS: HYPOCRISY IN STATUES

DOES INERRANCY REQUIRE HYPOCRISY? The Vatican unveiled its first new statue for St. Peter’s in 300 years.  To be honest the statue seems to me to be fairly ugly .. a monstrous brick of bronzed poor people, crowded together amidst the glorified statues of saints and popes.  The message, to me[...]

Report: Trump mocks evangelicals behind their backs

Trump counts evangelicals among his staunchest supporters, but mocks them behind their backs. Asked about it, a White House flack said, “The president is … well known for joking and his terrific sense of humor.” Huh??? Trump has a sense of humor? Trump refers to evangelical leader[...]
