New from RTV...new thumb 002

Vatican journalist, Sandro Magister, asks the million-euro question today at a major Summit press conference here in Rome: "What about homosexuality?"  The Archbishop of Malta's answer was epic -- so epic, in fact, that Michael asks the natural follow-up: "Well, was John Paul 'the Great' homophobic then, too?"   Michael Matt offers a late-night follow-up from Vatican City in which he points out how Vatican ineptitude is such that all sides are growing impatient with Francis, including the angry protestors outside of the press hall today calling the Pope and the Summit out.

Michael J. Matt tells us what he expects from the Vatican Summit (current mood: disillusioned), just before attending the press briefing on day 1.

Reporting from the Vatican, Michael Matt explains why Catholics around the world will not leave the Church despite the sexual abuse crisis but, rather, are resolved now more than ever to stay, stand and resist. On the eve of the Vatican Summit on clerical sexual abuse, Traditional Catholics stage a silent demonstration in Rome, followed by the answer to their prayer in the form of an eleventh-hour intervention from Cardinals Burke and Brandmuller. Plus, a major press conference provides opportunity for traditional Catholics to present the Catholic case to the mainstream media.

I’m writing tonight in the shadow of St. Peter’s Basilica, having just participated in the Stop the Silence public demonstration organized by our friends and allies of the international coalition called Acies Ordinata here in Rome. This demonstration concluded with a press conference in which Catholic representatives from Poland, Canada, the US, Italy, France, and England addressed mainstream media reporters from the AP, ABCNews, the Tablet, and many others.

Reporting from the Vatican, Michael Matt kicks off Remnant TV's coverage of the "Protection of Minors" Summit Meeting between Francis and over 100 prominent bishops of the Catholic Church, Orthodox leaders and representatives of women's groups. Will Archbishop Vigano's allegations come up at all? Or will the Vatican once again say a lot of nice words and do nothing in the face of the most serious crisis in the Church since the Protestant Revolt? Plus, what are the traditionalists going to be doing in Rome this week?

one world religion thumb

From the Editor's Desk, Michael Matt connects the dots from the Second Vatican Council, to the 1986 Assisi Prayer Meeting, to Cardinal Bergoglio's support of the URI, to Cardinal Dolan's 2015 Interfaith prayer service in New York, and finally to Francis's 2019 joint statement with the Egyptian Imam on "God-willed diversity and plurality of religions". Are we seeing the establishment of one ecumenical world religion? By the way, Pope Francis didn't come up with any of this. Plus, Pope John Paul called for WHAT at Gandhi's tomb back in 1986?

Remnant Editor's Note: Whether you are Catholic, non-Catholic, LGBT, straight, or none of the above, this is one question everyone in the world can agree the Pope must answer.
 
Since their initial press release, this question put to Pope Francis by the newly-formed Coalition of St. Athanasius (COSA) has been picked up by a number of media outlets, including many in the traditional Catholic press--the Lepanto Institute in Rome (which translated COSA’s Open Letter into Italian), the Fatima Center, Gloria TVCatholic Family News and others.
 
With the Vatican summit meeting on sexual abuse now just a week away, we here at The Remnant are looking to add our voice to those calling on Pope Francis not to restrict the 4-day conversation to the abuse of minors only but also to address the fundamental issue of homosexuality in the priesthood. In what is expected to be the largest media presence in the Vatican since the last conclave, we believe this summit meeting provides an opportunity for the world's Catholics to make urgent appeal to Rome that this issue finally be taken seriously.

A History of Disappointments

In 1987 Ronald Reagan nominated Anthony Kennedy to the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) to replace retiring Justice Lewis Powell, a member of the infamous Roe v. Wade majority (7-2). Kennedy, President Ford’s appointee to the Ninth Circuit, was Reagan’s third choice. A firestorm of Democrat opposition had defeated his prior nomination of Robert Bork. Reagan’s second choice, the “moderate conservative” Douglas Ginsburg, was sunk by allegations of marijuana use during college and while a professor at Harvard Law School.

What we got with Kennedy was a justice whose judicial tenor became generally indistinguishable from Powell’s. Indeed, even Powell might cringe at Kennedy’s infamous dictum on the imaginary right to abortion in Casey v. Planned Parenthood, where he joined a bare 5-to-4 majority in refusing to overrule Roe: “At the heart of liberty is the right to define one’s own concept of existence, of meaning, of the universe, and of the mystery of human life. Beliefs about these matters could not define the attributes of personhood were they formed under compulsion of the State.”

Thumnail GOOD

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK, Michael J. Matt covers Trump's SOTU address in light of the rise and fall of Neo-Catholicism from the Tiber to the Swamp and beyond. With Pope Francis teaming up with the Imam this week, it becomes clear that Catholic Tradition--liturgy, values, theology--is on the rise due to the sheer insanity of the remnant of diehard neo-Catholics from Pelosi, to Cuomo, to Dolan and Pope Francis himself.

haha

When can we start talking about “toxic femininity”?

The other day, before we all got distracted by that absurdist bit of manufactured political theatre in DC, apparently the Gillette company produced an advert that more or less insulted their entire customer base. (Well DONE, morons!)

I didn’t see it, but it’s not hard to guess. It was probably something like this: “7 Obsolete ‘Manly’ Skills and What to Replace Them With” Click it if you think you must, but in brief it says, “If you are manly, get rid of that toxic notion and become a woman.” If you’re handy about the house, fixing things, that’s toxic: learn to decorate.

New from RTV...thumb davi

At a time when precious few Catholic men can summons the intestinal fortitude to take a stand for anything that doesn't involve sports, it makes us want to stand up and cheer when movie star, Robert Davi, puts it all in the line for babies, morality, God and country. After lambasting Governor Cuomo's maniacal new abortion law, what do you suppose Davi—a Hollywood tough guy—asks us to do for our country and the lives of the unborn?
