April 23, 2018

Jordan Peterson has created a sensation. He is a Canadian Professor of Psychology whose Book “12 rules For Life” is the #1 Best Seller on Amazon. He gives numerous  sold-out lectures on college campus. Pay attention, because this rebellious and brilliant academic, whose religious preference is hidden, may be the one of most effective evangelists for Catholicism today.   One of his basic messages is that we must recognize the fallen nature of humanity. And confront it. And understand that we are inhabited by Eden’s snake. Check out the “You Tubes” of Peterson’s devastation debates and gentle yet fiery lectures. There is no one like him.

Setting the Record Straight - The Slavery Weed - 4/6/18

April 6, 2018

No matter how often slavery is abolished it sprouts up again and again like a weed. But when and where was slavery abolished? Well…the full answer is complicated. Slavery was abolished over and over again in various locations. A simplified answer might be that it was opposed and/or abolished frequently in a lot of places, most often in a time and place where the Catholic Church was influential.  Most educated people know about the achievements of Wilberforce and Lincoln. But those two men were late to the game of abolishing slavery. Under Catholic emperors the late Roman Empire abolished slavery a millennium-and-one-half before Wilberforce. All this leads to “Another Daring Proposition”from Setting The record Straight”. Catholicism did more to abolish slavery than any other entity.

Setting the Record Straight - “Tis St. Patrick’s Day - Believe it or Not ! The Irish Monks saved Us All - 3/18/18

March 17, 2018

It was the great age of the Irish monks. With an ardor first ignited by Saint Patrick they managed to save us from the Muslims and from something worse, from the worst part of ourselves.  Think of Saint Columbkille who led his army as they slew three-thousand-and-one souls in the dispute over a transgression Columbkille had committed. He had copied by hand a valuable yet private book.  A Book War!  The first founding copyright case !  What a bibliophile ! Soon he confessed his mortal sin. His Penance was to  be exiled from his beloved Ireland and to go and save three-thousand-and-one souls in just measure. He did more…much more than that. He renewed the sweet Christian spirit, the towering intellectual pursuit,  and the fiery spiritual ardor of our beloved Catholic Church bringing  the brilliance of Christ of light to millions in a world teetering on the edge of chaos.

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.
