We might not win this battle. But we've already won the war.

Please do be prepared. In the eyes of the secular world, we might not win the battle we are fighting during—and after—the Fortnight for Freedom.

As a matter of fact, in the eyes of the world, we've already lost. You know this. Catholic teachings are all but outlawed in the land of the fruited plains and the home of the brave.

The memorials we celebrate on June 22—Saints John Fisher and Thomas More—remind us all too clearly that a country once dedicated to the Church of Jesus Christ, and Her Vicar in Rome—that, in the secular world, the Kingdom of God is not all that easy to help come about.

But. No matter. We've already won the battle—or, rather, Christ on the Cross has won it for us.

Pray. Fast. Sacrifice. And, yes, fight.

But in the end? Be of good cheer.

We've already won.

Fortnight for Freedom

Prayer. Study. Catechesis. Public Action.

Welcome home, Leah!

She was a very cool atheist, as atheist's go. I expect she'll be an even cooler Catholic. Thank you, Lord.

Pelosi On Contraception & Faith: "I Do My Religion On Sundays, In Church" does one "do" one's religion, exactly?

Guardsman, peace-loving landlady are at odds over apartment rental -

Yes, indeed, war is hell. But so are some not-so-grateful would-be landladies, in my humble opinion.

My fetus might be ____. So I'll kill her.

Your Congress, my congress, and our president simply reaffirmed the fact that abortion is not at all a "pro-woman" issue. But we knew that already, didn't we?

"The right to choose [to kill my child]" has been a mantra for lo these many years now. What puzzles me is trying to figure out why so many pro-lifers are so upset about the recent decision to bless abortions based on sexual preference. [Read: "I don't want a girl." Or, if it makes you feel better, "I don't want a boy." Probable reality? "I want a boy."]

Well, to be clear, I do understand why folks are upset. I guess my question is: where's the surprise here?

Abortion has never been about "women's rights."

Abortion has always been about egoism. About "I'm better than you are." About "if we're going to [sigh] go through all this crap, then we'd damn well get what we're paying for."

And it's a buyer's market.

If you're apt to be sickly, forget about it. If there's a chance you might be a slow learner, or too short, or too tall, or not quite have the right hair, or not have the exact dimple, or may be a brunette (you wanted a blonde) or might be blonde (redheads are so cute!) or won't be athletically, scholastically, musically, artistically, or fill-in-the-blank inclined, it's toodle-loo toots. You won't make it in our world.

And God help you if they really do find a homosexual gene because if they do? And you've got it?

You're toast.

It's the age of designer babies, folks.

I'm sorry, of course, that our elected officials decided—nah, not decided: affirmed—that it's just peachy to kill an unborn child because she's the "wrong gender."

But I'm certainly not surprised. What else did you expect? Equality???? Come on.

May God continue to bless you.
