Satanists Plan Public Attack on Virgin Mary, Protest Here

Oklahoma City, December 19, 2015 -- Satanists plan to pour costume blood over a statue of the Virgin Mary on Christmas Eve in Oklahoma City.  The public desecration received a permit from City Hall and is scheduled to take place in front of St. Joseph Old Cathedral, a historic Catholic Church located in downtown Oklahoma City.

Adam Daniels, who held a satanic Black Mass in Oklahoma last year, told The Oklahomanthat he intends to use fake blood "to add another layer of corruption to Mary, which is an emblem of the Catholic Church.”

In response, Catholics are calling mayor Mick Cornett to revoke the permit issued to the satanic group.  "This public attack against the Mother of God should be called out for what it really is: religious persecution," said Tradition, Family and Property spokesman, John Ritchie.  "Instead of feeding the flames of this new religious persecution, City Hall should revoke the permit immediately."

Within twenty-four hours, over 7,000 people have signed a petition, urging mayor Cornett to take wift measures.  Those who wish to join the petition may do so here.

Why I Refuse to Use the Word “Capitalism” -


When speaking of imbalance in our economy, many are quick to lay the blame upon capitalism as a system since we have long gloried in being the capitalist nation par excellence. One must reject such an evaluation. In its purely popular sense understood by most Americans, capitalism is a market system of production and consumption that protects the right of private property and free enterprise under the rule of law. In this sense, it is a useful system that has produced general prosperity for our nation. Hence, it cannot be the target of our criticism.
Yet capitalism also cannot be the battle line in our defense. The word has other meanings that cannot be endorsed. The left, for example, has long used this term to describe the system’s shortcomings or excesses, while some libertarians have used it to promote a radical anarchical agenda.

That is why one must carefully avoid the trap of using the word indiscriminately. Because of the misuses of the word, it is wiser to follow the advice of Jesuit economist Fr. Bernard Dempsey, who claims that capitalism is a word incapable of scientific definition, and one that should only be used with great reluctance and care, commenting: “Only a very foolish general accepts battle on terrain of his adversary’s choice.”[1] It is best to use this vague term sparingly.

Boys Embrace Chivalry at TFP Fall Camp

Pop-culture tells us that happiness is found in money, pleasure and prestige.  We are told not to pursue those lofty ideals of honor, heroism and sacrifice that flourished during the Age of Faith.  After all, Hollywood leads the way now.  This is 2015, not 1099.  Get with the times.

However, at the 2015 TFP-Louisiana Call to Chivalry Fall Camp a new generation of boys has turned away from the Hollywood paradigm and embraced the virtues of Chivalry with great enthusiasm.  More and more boys sense that Hollywood is fake and Chivalry is real.

(Get information about future camps here)

From November 20-25, dozens of boys between the ages of 12-18 joined the 5th annual TFP Fall Camp in the wilderness of the Ozarks in Arkansas.  Housed in log cabins nestled on the edge of the Buffalo River, the young men arrived with their fathers for an action-packed furlough of adventure.  The setting of solitude was ideal for reflection, prayer, educational talks, good Catholic conversation and outdoor activity.
