Down in the catacombs, Michael Matt discusses the latest front in the war against God: the gender war.
Fifty years ago traditional Catholics were speaking out against women dressing as men. Were they stark raving mad?
Today, such talk is ridiculed as dangerous fundamentalism, of course, but given the fact that we now have a massive attempt to blur the lines between women and men and boys and girls, maybe the traditionalists were onto something.
This brief Catacomb Rant sparks up that conversation again. After all, the traditional Catholics were right about the war on liturgy; they were right about horrific social and moral consequences of contraception; and maybe—just maybe!—they were right to be concerned about women dressing as men. What do you think?

Michael J. Matt comments on the new prayer video of Pope Francis. With the world blowing up all around us, babies being aborted by the millions, marriage all but destroyed and the Christian family on life support—why is the pope so worried about us all going green? Is there something else going on here?
Lots of recent pro-Christian statements and actions of Vladimir Putin are giving good people pause. Is it all just politics? And even if it is, what does it mean? Why is he doing it? And what does it portend for the future of Europe?
Why is Russia sounding more Christian all the time while America is becoming increasingly Christophobic? What if Putin actually means what he says? What impact will his Christian words have on his people, and what impact will the Obama/Clinton Christophobia have on ours?
On national TV, Cardinal Dolan was tested on his fidelity to the Church's moral teaching. He didn't so well. But when they come for you with the same question how will you answer? Are you ready to lose everything?

The Mike ‘n’ Chris show examines the latest publicity stunt out of the Vatican. In this Year of Mercy, Pope Francis is sending out 1,000 priests to absolve sins that every parish priest can already absolve. Why only 1000? What is this, a mercy monopoly? Does any of this make sense to you?
Cardinal Burke banished, Bishop Athanasius Schneider encourages resistance, journalists speak of crisis in the Church. Michael Matt and Christopher Ferrara discuss growing schism under the disastrous pontificate of Pope Francis.
Twentieth century popes, saints, even the Mother God warned that something was very wrong with Vatican II. So why must Catholics still swear fidelity to the massively failed experiment in novelty called the Second Vatican Council? When is enough...enough?
