When Chris Nichols was diagnosed with a life-threatening cancer, he knew exactly where he wanted to be buried: Ramsey Creek, a 33-acre nature preserve just outside Westminster, South Carolina, minutes from his home. One attendee at the funeral was his dog, Briar. The pet watched as Nichols was bundled in quilts sewn by his great-grandmothers and lowered into the ground inside a coffin his father had made. MORE
The old maxim is entirely true; as goes the Church, so goes the world. One can plainly see today’s world is completely falling apart and at every level. Logic and reasoning, gone, the weather conditions and Chaos around the world.
There’s no need to get all worked up over this “gay marriage” thing. Fr. Robert Barron has it all figured out: “We’ve been here before.”
The man who morally undermined America is dead and no one is saying a word…Well, I have a few things to say…. What did Hefner stand for really? Hedonism, debauchery, lust, envy, lasciviousness–all of the deadly sins that lead to the downfall of nations. Yet we idolize such men as gods! And what about the females…so eager to expose themselves, without shame, without conscience, and knowing that what they do corrupts others? Without Hefner there might not have been a “sexual revolution” resulting in the deaths of 60 million unborn children. Estrogen from birth control pills now contaminates every water supply and fresh water river in America…And 100 million females use these drugs regularly!
Now, Virtually everyone in America is immoral.
- The traditional family unit is extinct
- The divorce rate is reaching 80%
- Marriage between a man and a woman is a thing of the past
- Sexual promiscuity and perversion is taught in gov’t schools to children as young as 5
- Rapes are committed by almost as many females as males ( see When Predators Are Women “48 Hours” investigates sex abuse by women teachers )
- Government controls over the lives of the people boarders on absolute tyranny!
People love to speculate on hidden meanings or to jump at the potential of juicy secrets. Unfortunately, when these things are unfounded, lies are told and people are hurt. And most unfortunately, Christians are often involved in perpetuating them.

The milestones of adulthood for today’s millennials: economic security and finishing school — not rushing to get married and have a family.
And once they are married, young women in America are less likely to see homemaking as a career.
The share of young women 25 to 34 who opted to forgo outside employment in favor of managing a household plunged from 43 percent in 1975 to just 14 percent last year, according to the Census Bureau. Census demographers believe that number could be among the lowest on record. MORE
In this letter I’m focusing on the economic business contributions that Catholic culture contributes to our economy. I’m leaving out schools, hospital’s and the like.
Starting with January 1 and New Years Day
New years day on January 1 comes from Julius Caesar and Pope Gregory XIII.
I could not find a monetary figure of the spending done on New Years Eve so I estimated the spending to be around 15 billion dollars.
Valentine’s Day is estimate to be around 20 billion dollars.
St. Patrick’s Day I’m estimating it to be about 3 billion dollars.
Mardi Gras, I’m estimating this to be around 50 million dollars.
Easter Sunday, estimating it to be about 5 billion dollars.
Halloween, is estimated to be about 5.9 billion dollars.
And the biggest money spender of them all, Christmas. The estimated spending for Christmas for 2016 is put at ONE TRILLION DOLLARS.
So these Catholic bashers who are laughing all the way to the bank should move to some communist country and live in their own dream world.
In Christ, Joseph
