While it is an exaggeration to say that Thomas Aquinas College the Latin Church of Orange are two SJW-converged institutions (well, it's an exaggeration for at least the former), both do uphold Catholic feminism, or feminism lite. There is no leadership for the restoration of patriarchy to be found there?
A question that will become more important as people realize that the modern nation-state, especially as it has been manipulated by those in power through immigration, is no political community.
What are the proper norms for interpersonal relations, especially members of the opposite sex? While it is not necessary to antagonize strangers without reason, how should men respond to hostile women or feminists? Someone would say that we should uphold chivalry or previous codes of conduct for gentlemen. But is that a proper response to those who are hostile to us and may even seek to destroy our livelihoods? Sociability/affability is a virtue require for living with others -- but this may be restricted to those with whom one forms a community. For those who have shown themselves to not be allies, avoidance, silence, or some word of disapproval or rejection may be necessary and justified. Some may fear economic retaliation in the workplace by SJWs -- that is a legitimate consideration. But should men be willing to cut ties with those who do not share the same culture nor seek to be a part of their community? I think so -- the cutting of ties is the last remedy with respect to those who will not change their behavior, and men need to be willing to go through with it in order to protect themselves, their families, and their communities. This may require that they change jobs or where they reside, so that they can live with integrity.
"But that's not being nice!" Or, "you're alienating someone instead of being Christ to them." If they are of good will and can accept correction, then correction can be given. Otherwise, it is they who have alienated themselves by embracing a prideful, unnatural ideology that is detrimental to women, men, and society at large. Perhaps if enough virtuous people (especially men) signal to them that their acceptance of this ideology and any other objectionable behavior is unacceptable they may seek to change and be reconciled.
What about African-American community? If they do not seek to observe white standards of conduct or be part of white America, then what is to be done other than separation?
Was Lloyd Alexander a feminist? Certainly Eilonwy is a princess who hates being treated like a mere "girl" -- does she learn a lesson later in the trilogy? Or are the books written by someone ignorant of the real dangers of a barbaric age, and the necessity for women to seek protection from men?
As Marvel and DC continue to wreck their properties by oversaturating the market... what are the alternatives? Thought about a Strike Back movie, then I saw this article in EW from last year. The movie will probably have sex scenes like the Skinemax original series but if one can ignore those parts, the action sequences should be decent and the gunplay "somewhat" realistic.
In the appointment of future bishops, it will be the Chinese episcopal conference that proposes the candidates. But on the condition that they also join the thirty “underground” bishops whom Beijing does not yet recognize, and that the bishops without papal approval be removed
Metaphysics as an Act of Mercy By Brian Jones
Our frequent talking point, in both politics and religion, is that of mercy and compassion. All too often, what Catholics say about mercy and compassion is not at all different from the views of everyone else.
Msgr. Michael Heintz answers a question during a talk he gave last year on liturgy and vocation about discernment(at 57:30):
He says the greatest of John Paul II to the Church is Pastores Dabo Vobis on the reform of seminary education. The key element that he introduced? "Human formation" as distinct from pastoral formation.
He gives some examples such as organization and socialization skills. Now, given the state of Uhmerican parenting it may be that even among Catholics, children are not being raised with important life skills. How many parents have failed to raise healthy, (psychologically) balanced human beings? Being absent from the home surely has not helped the situation, and while we may be used to fathers being the "breadwinner" who labor far from the home in modern industrial societies, how can their absence not have had an effect on the maturation process of their sons?
How can there be just one path of human development for human beings, when the differences between men and women are significant? The "human formation" of men, especially for those who will ultimately consider the priesthood, must include the education necessary to teach them how to be men. Hence basic ethical development and character formation must also acknowledge sex differences. Holding people to a standard in social interaction, expecting them to apologize when they don't commit some infraction against the respect due to another or fail to live up to some standard, these are actions that men should do. But they should also be corrected when they fall into passive aggressiveness, or have been raised improperly to become "Mr. Nice Guy," being a doormat for others or avoiding all conflict out of fear.
How can a man be a spiritual father if one doesn't know how to be a father, or a man?
