Stories of conservative thought being silenced and censored online is now a problem so obvious that liberals like Canadian feminist (I know, almost a tautology) Meghan Murphy are taking note. Murphy was was banned for life from Twitter for using the birth name of a transgender person. The horror!

Matthew Peterson, vice president of education at the Claremont Institute, has had enough. He’s on a mission to gather together anyone—conservative or otherwise—motivated enough to fight back against the narrow-minded, one-sided agendae of Big Tech. How is it just that Google, Twitter, Facebook and other social media platforms routinely soft-ban or outright remove influencers with unapproved opinions? 

Today’s heretics in the Church of SJWs may not be burned at the stake. They’re just booted out of polite cyber society. Then again, given the track record of violence by groups like Antifa, give them a chance…

Okay, this is a personal biggie. To get to talk to the mother of the baby boy, James Fulton Engstrom, who was stillborn on September 16, 2010, after a healthy pregnancy. The baby stayed dead for 61 minutes.

Let that sink in.

James’s parents, Bonnie and Travis, began praying—hoping very much against hope—for the intercession of Archbishop Fulton Sheen, who was born and raised near their hometown, to “do something!”

 

After 61 minutes, something totally unexpected and yet longed for happened. The baby’s heart quickened into a healthy rhythm, and a lovely pink flush replaced the ashen gray of his corpse. TOTALLY impossible, according to every medical expert who has examined the case, and yet it happened. But they weren’t out of the woods. Sweet Baby James, by all evidence, would never recover from the catastrophic loss of oxygen. Doctors predicted the worst.

The Engstroms leveraged social media and doubled down on the heavenly “ask.” People in many countries came to the assistance with prayers. And none of the medical disasters came to pass. James was, and is, normal.

This is an incredible story, and is set to be the bona fide miracle that will make “Uncle Fultie” become Blessed Fulton J. Sheen, one step away from canonization. Ah, cool!

The title  a double meaning, his legal appeal on charges of sexual abuse that happened June 4-5, 2019, and his personal appeal as a man and as a Christian. I could have called it Everything You Know About the Pell Trial Is Wrong.

My guest this week explains why. Peter Westmore is the former President of the National Civic Council, and a writer for News Weekly. Westmore attended both trials of Cardinal Pell (and the appeal last week) and heard all the evidence provided to the court—twice. In June 2015, a complainant accused George Cardinal Pell of sexual assault (forced oral sex and genital fondling) involving two choir boys in the sacristy moments after Sunday Mass at the Melbourne Cathedral, in broad daylight, with Pell in full liturgical vestments, with the door open, in a church swarming with people leaving the building or strolling the nearby hallways.

None of the 25 witnesses at each trial (the first one of which ended in a hung jury) could attest to the truth of the claimant’s charges, which themselves changed over time. The other boy ended up overdosing on heroin, and, according to his own mother’s testimony, denied ever been sexually abused. The entire case against Cardinal Pell rests on one man’s say-so, with multiple layers of improbability if not complete impossibility.

An interesting, and telling, fact: Pope Francis has not suspended Pell’s priestly faculties despite the guilty verdict, while Ted McCarrick (never tried in court) was laicized and exiled to Kansas.

Lila Rose fought abortion before fighting abortion was cool. At the tender age of 15, she began the Live Action apostolate from her parents’ living room. She knew it was killing babies and wounding their mothers and fathers, and that “thoughts and prayers” alone is not a strategy.

By 18, the then Evangelical Christian Lila began doing undercover-with-hidden-cam work investigating Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers. What she saw and heard—and recorded for the world to see—shocked her. And so LiveAction.org was born and quickly grew.

Ten years out, and Live Action is a top leader and influencer in the area of authentic (and brave) pro-life education. As Lila points out, it’s not just about “learning facts.” It’s about how to put those facts—to quote St. Mother Teresa—into a  living action. Hence, Live Action. Listen to Lila unfold the story of how the non-profit, non-partisan apostolate became a powerhouse model for other pro-lifers wondering what to do about the problem.
