POPE FRANCIS, THE JESUITS and SYNCRETISM (repost with missing text added)

(Unfortunately, the last two paragraphs of Desmond’s article were inadvertently omitted. Thus, I’m re-posting his piece and have added and italicized the formerly missing text. ~BH) Brothers and Sisters in Christ, Does the Catholic Church believe that one “religion” is as good as another?

After God’s Own Heart

By Charlie Johnston Dennis Prager observed a few years back that leftists destroy everything they touch, adding that they are not liberals; they are totalitarians. After destroying their target, they offer nothing to replace the function it had. The fiasco with the Iowa caucuses is yet more evidence of that observation. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz […]

Dizzying Developments

By Charlie Johnston Late in the colorful baseball career of pitcher Dizzy Dean, a reporter remarked that he wasn’t throwing as hard as he did when he was younger.

I was in my early 20’s when I realized that movement environmentalists had no clue what they were talking about. It was all about showing how clever and noble they […]

Opening Skirmishes

By Charlie Johnston Appeasement is provocative to dictators. It merely encourages them to push harder and intimidate more. Ronald Reagan insisted that we would attain “peace through strength.” When he did so, the left and the media all accused him of being a warmonger – and shrieked that we were “all going to die.” Any […]

Man and Superman

By Charlie Johnston When I was a kid, I absolutely loved Superman comic books. How cool it was to imagine having superpowers – to fly, to be super-strong, invulnerable, faster than a speeding bullet and able to leap tall buildings at a single bound. I spent many hours devising theories on how to make human […]
