A million Frenchmen marched on the capital of France, Paris, in defense of Marriage this past weekend. Catholics, Muslims, Jews, Homosexuals, Heterosexuals, Men and Women all marched to protest François Hollande’s attempt at completing the destruction of the Family and the Church which began in the French Revolution and continued with the May 68ers, has been stalled at the moment.
My wife and I are creating decals to defend religious freedom. The decals can be placed on bumpers or the rear windows of cars. These decals will show Catholics our resolve to defend religious freedom.
The designs were done by a friend of ours who is entering the seminary and we would like to have your input on them. The design is that of the sign, the Chi Rho, that Constantine saw right before the battle at Milvian Bridge with the words right above this sign that said, “In Hoc Signo Vinces”.
We will be offering them for sale at a date to be determined. These designs fall under creative commons.
The deadline to vote on them is on July 25 at midnight.
The following is an informal press release from Deacon James Barnett, the Parish Administrator for Our Lady of Walsingham:
Charles Hough, IV, who has received the necessary permission from the Holy See to be ordained as a Catholic priest, will assume this office on July 1, after his ordination. He and his wife, Lindsay, together with their two sons, will move from Fort Worth to Houston in June.
“Chuck Hough comes from a family with a very distinguished record of ministry, and he has himself demonstrated significant leadership gifts while serving in the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth,” said Msgr. Jeffrey Steenson. “His father served for many years as canon to the ordinary in Fort Worth, one of the best mentors for ministry there can be.”
In a Time magazine interview Ozzie Guillen, major league baseball manager of the Miami Marlins and home to the largest number of Cuban expatriates, said that “I love Fidel Castro–I respect Fidel Castro.”
Fidel Castro, along with Che Guevara, have committed countless murders of innocent civilians, incarcerated many more, and the rest exiled to America. Needless to say Castro is a monster that will take his place on the ash heap of history quite soon.
He apologized but the damage is done. He denounced Castro, but it’s almost meaningless. Of course I take him in his sincerity and accept the apology, but that doesn’t mean you are allowed to escape punishment.
There are some pundits and reporters say that this is America and we do have a right of free speech, so the Miami Marlins shouldn’t fire Guillen. That’s where these pundits and reporters get it wrong, yes, Guillen has a right to free speech, but so do the Miami Marlins have a right to fire him in expressing their free speech as well.
The concept of free speech is that the U.S. allows it and they shouldn’t be persecuted for it by the U.S. government, but a private enterprise can do what they want.
Fire the guy. He’s known to be a loud mouth and he had time to articulate his thoughts in a sit-down interview with Time magazine. Plus the fact that he is from Venezuela where Hugo Chavez rules with impunity and is the Fidel’s BFF. So I can see where his “love” for Castro is emanating from.

For about five hours this morning ThePulp.it, The American Catholic, and Ignitum Today websites went down. I want to make clear that we were not hacked, we did not get viruses planted, nothing of those natures. What I can say is that precautions have been taken to prevent such an incident from occurring again.
I want to apologize to all our readers and visitors and affirm our dedication to providing you the content you all have expected from us on these websites.
