I’ve been debating with people over the main motives of the current efforts of the regime in Rome to block or dismantle all attempts to return the Church to her original Catholic course. Many have said, not without justification, that we need to follow the money. Certainly in nearly every case of a concerted attack by the Bergoglians against a Catholic organisation, staggeringly large sums of money are nearly always involved. Still, we can’t discount the ideological motive either.
But “follow the money” is never bad advice for a journalist. This week, our friend Marco Tosatti stirred up the debate again, when he gave us another fascinating glimpse into the Vatican’s ongoing persecution of the saintly Fr. Stefano Manelli and the order he founded, the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate.
The essence of the heresy of Pelagius, a holy monk who went badly wrong, is denial of the dogma of Original Sin and the effects of Adam’s transgression upon the whole human race. Pelagianism holds that man is not in a fallen state and that his free will alone is able to reach perfection in virtue, even if grace may assist in the endeavor. The existence of an original Paradise and state of human perfection in Adam and Eve are also denied, with death and concupiscence viewed as natural to man. Pelagius also anticipated by more than a thousand years the Lutheran master-heresy of justification by fiducial faith in Christ alone, with no interior transformation and elevation to a state of grace.

The pro-life movement is divided over the case of a pregnant high school student who violated her Christian school chastity pledge and will be barred from "walking" at her graduation ceremony. The young lady is complaining to the New York Times, the mainstream media are crucifying the school principal, and some pro-life groups are accusing the Christian school of a form of "shaming" that will lead to more abortions.
So, what's going on here, and why isn't every pro-life group in America supporting this Christian school's efforts to fight the fundamental cause of abortion among teens--premarital sex? Is the pro-life movement lowering the bar on promiscuity? Plus, what is a 'pro-life feminist'?
