We all know about the Sixties, both the decade and the cultural ethos it generated. But do we know the players, leaders, architects, and financiers who created the Sexual Revolution that made the Sixties infamous?

Dr. Jennifer Roback-Morse, author and foundress of The Ruth Institute, has the answers. Her stemwinder of a book, The Sexual State: How Elite Ideologies Are Destroying Lives and Why the Church Was Right All Along, tells the sordid tale, naming names and taking no prisoners.

 

In this interview you will learn:

  • When the “Sixties” actually began
  • The roots of dissent inside the Catholic Church and how it became allied with the Church’s secular enemies
  • How elites like John D. Rockefeller III worked to insinuate population control ideas within the Church hierarchy
  • Why divorce, contraception, and transgender ideology all tend toward the same purpose
  • What parents can do to counter the bad ideas that swamp college campuses regarding sex, marriage, and faith.

************************************************

On August 2, 2018, the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Luis Cardinal Ladaria, announced that Pope Francis authorized a change in Art 2267 of the Catechism of the Catholic Church regarding the death penalty.

The new phrasing declares that the death penalty can no longer be applied in any case, anywhere in the world no matter the crime. Is this a legitimate “development of doctrine” as the Pope’s supporters affirm? Are Catholics now required to give the “religious submission of mind and will” to this new viewpoint of the Roman Pontiff, which, according to Vatican II’s Lumen Gentium 25, applies even to papal teaching that is not ex cathedra? Can the new Catechism be changed again?

Associate professor of philosophy at Pasadena City College, Dr. Ed Feser, believes it can and, should, be rescinded. The teaching as now phrased seems to openly contradict, not merely amend or develop, the 2000-year-old support for the death penalty in some cases. This is one not to miss.

 

In this episode you will learn:

  • Why, from the Bible, the Church fathers and doctors, and many saints, and sacred Tradition, the Catholic Church has traditionally supported the death penalty
  • How the death penalty can lead to the repentance and redemption of the condemned
  • The perils of letting vicious criminals continue their evil acts inside prison
  • The strongly held opinion of Pope Francis that even life sentences are the practical equivalent of the death penalty, and therefore morally unacceptable
  • How you can understand what the next steps might be in light of a worldwide effort to encourage the cardinals of the Church to revisit the Catechism reboot

Dr. Lee Podles is an author and researcher with over 20 years’ experience as a federal investigator. He’s neither a loopy liberal with an axe to grind nor a bitter Trad who hates everything that happened after the Council of Trent. He’s a husband and father of six who is fed up with the conspiracy of silence and the constant use of euphemisms when it comes to the priestly abuse crisis.

One of the bases for his anger is the astonishingly similar pattern of a) abuse (mostly homosexual predation), b) traumatic imprint in the victim, and that fact that c) few people believe the victim, d) bishop moves predators around (or claims “no legal duty” to disclose previous molestation of minors in the background of priests, e) either pay out enormous sums of money in settlements or double down on undermining the victim.

Not for the faint of heart, his 2008 book Sacrilege: Sexual Abuse in the Catholic Church is a tour de force—a journey into dark recesses of the secretive bishops’ club in which lawyering up and refusing responsibility characterize the crisis.

Don’t miss this riveting conversation with a courageous researcher who—as an indispensable minimum—wants the Church herself to purge, repent, and renew through telling the truth.

 

In this episode you will learn:

  • Why “clericalism” feeds the problem but does not explain it
  • Why Catholic laymen need to take the lead in restoring the Church to her rightful place and mission
  • That the crisis is international in scope, even if it represents only a small minority of priests
  • It is not a “pedophilia” scandal but a homosexual predator one
  • Signs of hope that Christ has not abandoned His Church

Dr. Richard Fitzgibbons has 40 years’ experience as a psychiatrist. His expertise is in the clinical benefits of forgiveness and in the interpersonal dynamics of anger. The priestly abuse crisis provides plenty of anger, and plenty of opportunity for forgiveness, where appropriate. But is the crisis about “clericalism” as some have claimed?

Fitzgibbons believes that if anyone blames clericalism participates in the cover-up since the crisis is mainly about homosexual predators destroying young lives. Euphemisms and changing the subject are not a strategy for restoration.

 

In this episode you will learn:

  • The psychological roots of same-sex attraction
  • The difference between sinful anger and the morally neutral emotion of anger
  • Why forgiveness is a choice, not a feeling
  • The way in which clericalism has helped give cover to the perpetrators
  • Why the Catholic Church is still the unique repository of Christ’s truth

**************************************

Tucker Carlson is very good at what he does, which is engage guests and topics on his prime time-slotted Fox News show Tucker Carlson Tonight. With aplomb and wit—which is hard when your guest is an angry eedjit,as the Irish say—he gets down to brass tacks on whatever the topic is.

His brand new book is titled Ship of Fools: How a Selfish Ruling Class Is Bringing America to the Brink of Revolution. And he means it. His thesis: you can have egalitarianism AND oligarchy. One of the has got to go. Yet the book, like its creator, is often hilarious in its own way.

 

In this episode you will learn:

  • Who the major players are—the “fools” of the title—and why they’re included
  • Why elites and oligarchs come in all religions, or none, and all skin colors
  • A brief history of how American culture shifted toward Krazy in the last few years
  • How the 2016 election of Donald Trump was a sign of electoral unhappiness that got worse over decades
  • How liberals sell fake science, climate change (denying contrary evidence) and why abortion is the untouchable sacrament of the Left
  • Some reasons to keep a sense of humor!
