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?

Sunday Sermons of South St. Paul. Father tackles the question of the Vatican's rediscovered "seamless garment"-- calling it a 'filthy rag that needs to be burned' And then he moves on to President Trump, hailing him -- from the PULPIT, mind you -- as the 'most pro-life president in 45 years. Given the volatile political climate at present, we really wonder how many other priests in America would have the courage to give this sermon. Many, we hope and pray.
The Remnant Forum's Michael Matt and Christopher Ferrara break down Instrumentum Laboris—the working document for the coming Synod on the Family in Rome. Question: Are the revolutionaries who broke the Church in the first place really in any position to fix it now?
Michael Matt chats with film maker Sean Finnegan about his film 'Out of the Darkness'--an award-winning documentary on pornography. How does porn impact you and your children? What can we do to fight back against this massive assault on our families?
Father speaks to First Communicants about the importance of Confession. Here's the beautiful traditional Catholic teaching so ignored by the Church of encounter, accompaniment and a dozen other meaningless buzz words.
From the Underground, Michael Matt talks about the election, whining liberals, and the largest hate group in America -- the liberal left. Plus, Trump faces his first test: Will the President-Elect fold to hate industry pressure to fire senior adviser "hater" Steve Bannon, or will he hold his ground and stick a finger in eye of the most dangerous Christophobes in America. This is HUGE.

Citing post-election SPLC hate crime "findings" from the floor of the Senate, Harry Reid signaled how the loser Left plans to handle the Trump presidency: Make him a lame duck by branding him King of the Haters.
What's really behind the hate industry efforts to silence mainstream America? A declaration of war on God, Family and the Unborn. Michael Matt comments on Christophobic media bias and how it will affect the next four years.
Father asks why Pope Francis, citing the Gospel reference to the Pharisee and the sinner, once again seems to be smearing faithful Catholics as fitting the bill of being pharisaical. Who exactly are these Christians the Pope keeps singling out for ridicule, and what's his point?
