Setting the Record Straight - Lust For The Mud: Part 2 - 11/30/17

November 30, 2017

We live in an unending revolt of the civilized against civilization. We long to return to a simpler life, to return to our native state. Why not make up your own imaginary tribal past. The problem is that the primitive life was not the paradise romantics imagine. Listen to part 2 of "Lust For The Mud" and hear why belief in this alfuring myth has caused much harm. This "Designer Tribalism" myth is based on the concept of "The Noble Savage" which was created by Jean Jacque Rouseau in the 18th century. Unfortunately, it still informs our government policies. Like most really good lies, it still has legs.

Setting the Record Straight - A Catholic At The Pilgrim’s Thanksgiving - 11/24/17

November 27, 2017

Thanksgiving is the quintessential Protestant religious holiday, right? Our national holiday commemorates the Pilgrim's first Thanksgiving at Plymouth Rock. The Pilgrims were fundamentalist Calvinists who were driven from England by the persecution under the Anglican Crown. They, in turn, despised Catholics. So how did a Catholic get invited to the feast? Listen and you will see that if the Catholic had not showed up, there would have been no feast at all.

Setting the Record Straight - Lust for the Mud: Part 1 - 11/16/17

November 16, 2017

Lust For The Mud. The inner urge to go native that sophisticated people sometimes feel. They want to go native, go slummin', return to the mythical innocent state of primitive mankind. The French coined the phrase as "Nostalgie De La Boue". Harmless? Not really. This myth has helped cause the cultural decline of recent centuries. It is grounded in romantic imaginings about how primitive people live without the supposedly artificial constraints of religion, society, and governments. Listen to the straight story about the effect of these delusions about life in primitive cultures.

Setting the Record Straight - Fraud Is Destroying Science Part 2 - 11/6/17

November 8, 2017

Truth esists, but is elusive. However, scientists today are often compelled to produce positive findings. Thus many peer reviewed articles have been found to be fraudulent. The search for the true requires something more than rationality. One should say "I don't know" quite often. Scientists must enhance the cool elegance of the scientific method with an attitude of humble spirituality...and a sense of beauty. Einstein said "The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science." Listen to what lays beyond even that.

Setting the Record Straight - Fraud Is Destroying Science - 11/2/17

November 2, 2017

Science is obsoleting religion in many people's minds. However, authentic science is much more humble and modest in its claims than these people suppose. One problem with our boastful sciences today is that so much of it simply isn't science. A study tried to replicate one hundred published psychology experiments sampled from three of the most prestigious journals in the field. Of the studies that had originally reported positive results, an astonishing 65 percent failed to show statistical significance on replication. Apparently many scientists have decided that the Great Watcher is dead and anything is permissible.

Setting the Record Straight - Why Halloween is Catholic - 10/26/17

October 26, 2017

The Catholic Church created Halloween. Pope Boniface IV in 610AD establshied All Martyrs Day. Pope Gregory IV moved it to November 1st. The name was changed to All Saints Day so we could honor all the souls including the martyrs. Saints, in English-speaking dialects, are sometimes called "The Hallowed" so it was called All Hallows Day. The evening before, All Hallows Day Eve, eventually was pronounced "Hallow'een." Did you know that it was once banned as being "too Catholic". Listen to the origin of the customs of Halloween. And to a suggestion for a truly Catholic Halloween Party for children.

Setting the Record Straight - Communist Catholics? Bella Speaks Out - 10/19/17

October 19, 2017

Are there Communist subversives within the Catholic Church? After the fall of the Soviet empire the KGB Archives were opened to Western shcolars. They uncovered secrets so profound that our history texts needed to be rewritten to account for the large scale of Communist subversion of our global and national institutions. Yale University published a twenty volume series on this shocking information. Today, however, the popular understanding of our history remains uncorrected even though a senior Communist agent named Bella Dodd spoke out to a Senate Subcommittee in the 1950s. You may be surprised at the number of Catholic clergy Bella knew to be Communist agents who had placed there with the mission of disgracing the Church from within. Under the personal instruction of Bishop Sheen Bella Dodd converted Bella to Catholocism.

October 12, 2017

Around the USA this week statues of Columbus were defaced by vandals. Was Columbus as cruel and ruthless as we are being taught in this new darker age of superstition.

One way historians dismantle Fake History is to go to original sources. Listen to what Columbus has to say about the native people of the New World. Listen as Columbus speaks.....with love and gentelness.

Setting the Record Straight - Why Not Consider The Images Option - 9/14/17

September 14, 2017

The "Image Option" is not a altertantive for the famous Benedict Option proposed in the recent book by Rod Dreher. The Image Option is to be enacted concurrently with and sometimes in conjunction with The Benedict Option. It is not a retreat and preserve strategy but is a daring advance and convince strategy. The key is to take advantage of technology's magnification of the power of images. It is a rebirth of the courageous Old Evangelization that saved the souls of almost half the world. Best of all is the fact that breadboxmedia.com contains the seed.

Setting the Record Straight - See Monks, Be Monks - The Benedict Option - 8/31/17

August 31, 2017

Have we already lost the Culture war? "Yes" says Rod Dreher in his powerful book *The Benedict Option* which is a NYT best seller. If we lost then what do we do now? Dreher advises that we might follow the example of the early monks, who, as Rome collapsed, followed Benedict and his famous Rule. They retreated into Christian enclaves and preserved authentic Christianity for the future generations. Is there no other option? Listen to Chuck offer another more hopeful way.
