Bishop Athanasius Schneider is truly one of the most awe-inspiring bishops in the Catholic Church today. An intrepid defender of truth raised up by God, he recently wrote an open letter condemning the idalatrous “Pachamama” statue featured so prominently throughout the Amazonian Synod. For today's Special Episode of The John-Henry Westen Show, John-Henry shares just some of the highlights of His Excellency's awesome statement.
Jonathon Van Maren kicks off this week’s episode of The Van Maren Show by reminding his listeners that hundreds of babies born alive during abortion procedures are simply left on their own to die. Jill Stanek joins Van Maren to discuss these horrors as well as those mentioned at the Planned Parenthood baby body parts trial against David Daleiden. Stanek was a nurse in Illinois in 1999 when she discovered that babies born alive after failed abortions were purposefully neglected and left to die. While some of what they say is shocking and has lurid details, it is vital that […]
October 29, 2019 (The Public Discourse) — In recent weeks, it has been reported that the Norwegian authorities have taken permanent custody of three American children from their Christian parents. Natalya Shutakova, a US citizen, and her husband, Lithuanian citizen Zigintas Aleksandravicius, are now allowed to visit their children only three times per year. Sadly, this is not particularly shocking to those who have been working to protect parental rights in Europe. It seems remarkable that this can be happening in a country that positions itself as a human rights champion. Through its Agency for Development Cooperation, Norway devotes more than $400 million […]

We were told that Pope Francis worried that there would be two synods: the synod of the hall and the synod of the media. My perception is that there are indeed two synods, but that they are the synod on the well-being of the indigenous people and the synod on the implementation of fashionable doctrinal/pastoral ideas.

ROME, October 16, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — At today’s synod press briefing, Vatican media officials initially denied knowledge of the mysterious unclad statue of a pregnant indigenous woman that has featured prominently in various events and ceremonies involving the Pope, in St. Peter’s Basilica, the Synod Hall and the Vatican gardens.

Pillari, a canon lawyer and chaplain in the extraordinary form, discusses the roots of priestly celibacy and why it is a fundamental aspect of the priesthood. In speaking about priestly celibacy, Fr. Pillari points out that married men can become priests and have in the past, look at Peter our first Pope. However, once a married man became a priest he had to pledge perpetual celibacy and in some cases left home to become a missionary. As the Amazon Synod proposes allowing married priests, The Church needs to remain faithful to […]

An event last week with indigenous people from the Amazon along with Pope Francis in the Vatican Gardens caused social media to explode. And rightfully so. We were either witnessing pagan idol worship in the Vatican with the seeming approval of the Pope or else it was a scandalous portrayal of the Mother of God in a crude nude statue. Frankly I don’t know which is worse, but either way it’s totally outrageous. That’s what we’re discussing in this special episode of the John-Henry Westen show stay tuned.

October 7, 2019 (La Nuova Bussola Quotidiana) — Climate scare-mongering serves political objectives by manipulating scientific data. Years of pounding propaganda have disoriented and seriously distorted how we consider reality, ranging from nature’s mechanisms to the relationship between development and the environment, from climate knowledge to the role of human activities. For this reason, La Nuova Bussola Quotidiana is dedicating a series of installments to climate change, aimed at addressing the single aspects falsified in this wave of collective hysteria. It must have come as a quite a surprise to those who are particularly naïve and embarrassed some Catholic journalists […]
