Setting the Record Straight - Paul Claudel’s Thoughts on The Apostles Creed Part 1 - 2/15/18

February 16, 2018

For Lent Chuck returns to the profound and beautiful thoughts of Paul Claudel on The Apostles Creed.  Many people who have read  Paul Claudel (1868-1955) regard him as the greatest modern Catholic writer and poet. Yet he remains almost totally unknown, even to Catholics. He wrote in his native French and most of his work remains untranslated. Claudel studied for a diplomatic career, but was also attracted to writing. He succeeded spectacularly in both realms. When he became France’s Ambassador to the USA he appeared on the cover of Time magazine. He was even honored by Pope Pius XII in an unprecedented ceremony in the Vatican. Here is a Catholic writer that deserves being rediscovered. 

 

These selections do not duplicate the Claudel writings Chuck used in past Lenten seasons.

Setting the Record Straight - The Catholic Church Mother of Our Laws: Part 2 - 2/8/18

February 8, 2018

Each culture is derived from its “cult”, its manners and morals from its culture, and its laws from its culture. Catholic philosophy imprinted each of these aspects of modern life. Prominent scholars have made a convincing case that the our Mother Church gave birth to our standards and laws. In the 12th century a catholic jurist named Gratian created the first concordance and codification of international laws, the “Concordia discordantium canonum”. Even our standards governing warfare has been shaped by the Church.

Setting the Record Straight - Mother Of Our Laws - The Catholic Church - 1/30/18

January 31, 2018

Do the humane laws of modern nations derive from English Common Law? This is often asserted. Are modern concepts of fair play and humane treatment of others the result of the slowly evolving trial-and-error improvement of standards of behavior? Maybe it was the Age of Reason. Or should we thank the Enlightenment? Or attribute it to  the suppression of the “patriarchy”.  Actually the advance in morality and laws occurred rather rapidly when our big Mother arrived.

Setting the Record Straight - Do You Know Father Maximillian Kolbe? - 1/19/18

January 19, 2018

Have you heard of Maximilian Kolbe? Listen  to a few stories about this Polish priest who performed noble and heroic acts in the Nazi death camps during WWII. Kolbe's life was strongly influenced by a childhood vision of the Virgin Mary. As he described it: “That night I asked the Mother of God what was to become of me. Then she came to me holding two crowns, one white, the other red. She asked me if I was willing to accept either of these crowns. The white one meant that I should persevere in purity, and the red that I should become a martyr. I said that I would accept them both”

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.

Setting the Record Straight - Columbus Speaks with Love - 10/10/17

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. Or are the stories just one more thread in the anti-Spanish and anti-Catholic Black Legend that has been part of our British-sired culture for the last 500 years. 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.

October 5, 2017

Sometimes people make it into histoy books because they were rulers in dramatic times. Or perhaps they perfomred great deeds. Drama and deeds can distract us from knowing the inner person, from appreciating the way people thought long ago. People back then may have been more gentle or more reverent than we realize. Listen to these stories and get to know King Louis XVI and Christopher Columbus.

September 28, 2017

A few weeks ago another statue of St. Junipero Sierra was defaced in California. The founder of the California missions has been criticized for his treatment of native populations in the 18th century. However, when Pope Francis canonized him in Washington, D.C. he said Saint Serra "sought to defend the dignity of the native community, to protect it from those who had mistreated and abused it." Hear the truth about this amazing priest who is called "The Founder of California".

Setting the Record Straight - Defending Columbus From Image Breakers - 9/21/17

September 21, 2017

What is the truth about Columbus? A vandal defiled the statue of Christopher Columbus in Central Park in N.Y. on Sept. 12th, 2017, leaving "blood"-red paint on the explorer's hands and scrawling "Hate will not be tolerated" on its pedestal and a message on the base "#somethingscoming." The recent epidemic of iconoclasm goes on. You might be surprised by the facts about Christopher Columbus. 

God Bless all.
