How Long, O Lord?

By Charlie Johnston Church Militant’s interview with Federal Elections Commission (FEC) Chairman, Trey Trainor, is not just good; it’s consequential. Those Bishops and other religious leaders who have relied on purported fears of losing their tax exempt status to justify turning a blind eye to depredations on the left and attacking the right with impunity […]

Deadly Danger Ahead

By Charlie Johnston I don’t think the hierarchy in America understands how deadly dangerous the situation over the potential canonical rebuke of Fr. James Altmann of La Crosse, Wisconsin, is. The controversy began when, in a recent homily, Fr. Altmann said bluntly that, given modern Democrat support for abortion, homosexual marriage, and gender ideology, no […]

Of Carts and Horses

By Charlie Johnston My favorite professor in college was Clarence VerSteeg. He was an expert on the American Revolution and our class was a sort of mini-seminar. It was limited to 15 students and met once a week for four straight hours each week. Professor VerSteeg made two big impressions on me. First, no one […]

To Everything, A Time

By Charlie Johnston More than a few people have asked me about this story of my Archdiocese considering disciplinary action against a Priest who publicly urged people to openly disobey the Archbishop on the matter of masking at religious services. I am glad, for it gives me an opportunity to reiterate some points that are […]

What I Really Think

By Charlie Johnston Whew! Getting a big organization up and running is like walking through mud underwater. I’m just hoping the mountain of paperwork I’m going through doesn’t grow taller than Mt. Meeker. I’ve been through it before – and look forward to that day when everything starts to flow easier and easier. It does […]

The French Horns Sound Their Entrance

By Charlie Johnston I absolutely LOVE Tschaikovsky’s “1812 Overture.” Alas, I have only heard two performances of it in my life that do it real justice. Most performances completely botch the last triumphant section, making it furious and fast, focusing on the booming of the cannon. They don’t sufficiently invoke the pathos of the suffering […]

One of the Family

By Charlie Johnston Things are starting to take shape. By the end of the week, CORAC will be formally registered as a non-profit. Sometime shortly thereafter, we will have a dedicated bank account that can accept donations and pay bills. The database is being mounted as we speak. At least a spreadsheet will go out […]

What We Have Done

By Charlie Johnston If you lost your job, but had $250,000 in the bank, you could live normally for quite some time if you are middle class, by drawing down on your capital. Every week you did that, though, you would be headed towards a precipitous cliff. Do it long enough and you would plunge […]

Heroes Rising

By Charlie Johnston VVhat vve have going on in this country right now is a giant protection racket. Antifa and BLM are like the Mob coming into a neighborhood and telling you, “Nice little business you have here. VVouldn’t vvant anything to happen to it.” They’ll give “protection” by not torching it if you pay […]

Gearing Up

By Charlie Johnston Thank you. Last week I announced the embryonic formation of a national group which will stand together, under God, for liberty, the basic actual human rights as enunciated in both the American Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights and, above all, the primacy of the family as the first church […]
