On Veils for Christian Women

For two-thousand years, Christian women have been covering their heads in prayer, whether it be in a chapel, or in public, or at home. It's a custom as old as Christianity itself. (Technically, it's older.) And Western women still do it, without even realizing it, and even if they're not religious at all. Take, for... Continue Reading →

I Have Lost Faith

Now that the US Bishops Conference is over, and absolutely nothing was done to combat the crisis of homosexual abuse and cover up within the US Catholic Church, I can finally say I've lost faith.

Where Do We Go From Here?

So it's official now. Everything is a mess. The Catholic Church is in complete and total chaos. Civil war is erupting among the bishops. Some bishops are about to go under federal investigation. Some are trying to get out of the country. The pope has been credibly accused of knowingly covering-up, and even rewarding, a... Continue Reading →
