In California, the mob has targeted statues of Junipero Serra, the saintly Franciscan who spread the faith through a system of missions. Where is the Church to protect the statues? Nowhere.

Pope Francis has once again trotted into political territory, calling on the masses to not just feed and clothe but also open border doors and shelter strangers from lands far and away. His words? European nations, all the developed nations, need to welcome more migrants. Well, isn’t that special. Now… Read More
Pope Francis warned against “dangerous alliances” among world leaders that threaten migrants and the world’s poor — an extremely odd and unfortunate statement for the pontiff to make given the gay orgy scandal and other sexual abuse issues that have hit the Vatican. “This is why the G-20 worries me,”… Read More
