Active in the pro-life movement since 1973, he is currently President of the board of directors of the crisis pregnancy center in his county.

REGULAR CONTRIBUTORS

Bonchamps

Bonchamps is a student of political theory and Catholic social thought. Libertarian-leaning, ultimately a social conservative, and a Catholic before anything else.

 

Chris Blosser

Christopher Blosser, a convert to the Catholic faith, was received into the Church in 1997. Born in Japan to missionary kids, he spent his early years in Pennsylvania and the better part of his childhood in Hickory, NC. He currently resides with his wife and son in New York City. His only claim to fame is having founded a little website in 2000, cheekily called the Cardinal Ratzinger Fan Club– little realizing that his favorite theologian would ultimately be elected to the See of Peter. He blogs regularly at Against The Grain and Catholics in the Public Square. A recovering radical, he is figuring out what it means to be Catholic and American. He can be contacted at blostopher “at” gmail.com.

LarryD

LarryD resides in southeastern Michigan with his wife and 2 sons.  Born and raised Catholic, he abandoned his faith during his college years, and returned to the Church a decade later.  When not participating in the free-market economy as a manufacturer’s rep for several packaging firms and fulfilling his roles as husband and father, he’s either blogging at the award-winning  Acts of the Apostasy, spending way too much time playing MMORPG’s, or when the weather’s agreeable, spoiling a fine walk by playing a round of golf.  He has -zero- theology degrees, but that doesn’t stop him from loving Jesus Christ and defending His Church to the best of his meager, snarky abilities.  He also has a cat of whom he’s 89% sure is plotting to kill him.

The Motley Monk

GUEST CONTRIBUTORS

Michael R. Denton

Michael is a Catholic from Louisiana.  He has a Bachelor’s in Political Science with a concentration in Political Theory as well as a minor in Philosophy from LSU and is currently attending law school. He is primarily interested in the relationship between politics, law, philosophy, and theology, especially in the American context. He has an unhealthy obsession with sports, especially with the LSU Tigers and the Superbowl XLIV Champion New Orleans Saints, that his wife thankfully puts up with. If for some reason you want to be exposed to more of his thoughts, Michael also blogs at For the Greater Glory and tweets here, though he’s somewhat ashamed of the last one.

 

Foxfier

Is a wife, mother of two girls and a boy, a Navy veteran and a geek who has been blogging since just before 2005. Got involved in ad hoc evangelization when fellow geeks and shipmates passed on the claims that drove them away from religion and she needed something more solid than “that’s not true.” More determination than sense.  Could, possibly, maybe, perhaps be concise if a gun were held to her head.  Can be contact via her name at gmail.com; blogs at a wordpress site of the same.

 

Dave Hartline

Dave Hartline has worked as a Catholic school teacher, coach, principal and diocesan administrator.  After starting the Catholic Report website, he wrote “The Tide is Turning Toward Catholicism,” which told the story of the rise of Catholic orthodoxy around the world. The book finished in Catholic Word’s Top 10 for 2007 (a consortium of Catholic publishers including the top selling Ascension Press.) Dave has appeared on EWTN and spoke in various settings around the country. A growing family convinced Dave to stop his daily website/blog and focus on the family. However, this hasn’t completely stopped him from working on his second book and contributing to great sites like American Catholic.  He holds a BA & MA from Ohio University.

Walter

Walter is a devout convert to the Catholic Church who loves beautiful liturgy, gorgeous old East Coast churches built by the calloused hands of America‘s Catholic immigrants, and His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI. He’s a former Democrat who has worked on several Democratic campaigns and has served as a Congressional staffer before leaving the political party which is increasingly becoming the “Party of Death”. Today his aligns himself solely with the teachings of the One Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church and its Magisterium and considers himself a “crunchy conservative“. Walter still loves politics and everyday tries to do something to help bring the Truth of Christ into our political landscape. He resides in the city that never sleeps with his amazing and wonderful wife, their handsome new son and zany dog. He also blogs (sadly, not often enough) at Gloria Tibi, Domine.
