Does Science Prove the Catholic Church is Right? Part III: Contraception and Fear

Jim Schroeder, an organizer for the pro-Catholic Foundation for Evangelization through the Media, recently published an article declaring without equivocation that “Science Is Proving the Church Is Right and the Culture’s Wrong:”

“Modern science – which so many assume is the antithesis or even enemy of Catholic teaching – actually bears out the truth and […]

Does Science Prove the Catholic Church is Right? Fact Check Part II: Lust and the Family

Jim Schroeder of the Foundation for Evangelization through the Media has declared boldly that “Science Is Proving the Church Is Right and the Culture’s Wrong.” Schroeder elaborates:

Pope Francis Says Atheists Are All Right With Him

The last pope, Joseph Ratzinger, denounced secularism as a source of wickedness. Today, Pope Francis has released a statement that shows a very different attitude.

Pope Ratzinger Resigns To Spend More Time With His Family

This morning, it was announced by the Vatican City that Joseph Ratzinger, who uses the alias Pope Benedict, will resign at the end of the month. The explanation that was provided: Bad health.

Those of us […]

Corapi and Cohen Religious Predictions of Doom lie Barren (excluding collateral damage)

It’s often said in authoritarian religious circles that “God is NOT mocked!”, “God CANNOT be mocked!,” or “God WILL NOT be mocked!”. As an empirical matter, the God character and His supposed standards are actually mocked on a regular basis. In the first decade of the 21st Century, two religious leaders predicted that such mockery […]

Pope Ratzinger Blames Jesus for Catholic Sexual Abuse of Children

The Catholic Pope, the former Nazi Joseph Aloisius Ratzinger, gave a speech today in which he spoke about his church’s problem with sexual crimes, saying, “How are we to explain the fact that people who regularly received the Lord’s body and confessed their sins in the sacrament of Penance have offended in this way? It remains a mystery.” […]

Archbishop Says Depriving Gays Of Rights Is Not Anti-Gay
