The Gospel Truth


  1. We have a dwindling number of influential Catholic leaders and authorities, in and out of the Catholic Church, who “cross the line and or straddle the fence” as avowed Catholics who accept the “fair and balanced” politically correct socialist policy in an effort avoid any stand for there Faith,Nation or Constitution.
    The medias and its representatives have are “cowed” by the Socialist, into bowing and soliciting their approval to be accepted by Obama and he Democratic Party.
    BB you hit a grand slam once more, without your columns and support,we would be lost in the Democratic Socialist desert without water.

  2. Bill, In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
    Your passion for the logos is a passion for God’s love, I think. I would like to know more about that commitment. Can you expand?
    Also, thanks for the Alinsky quote. I must have missed the dedication.

    • –Mike:

      As for the Alinsky quote in all fairness, I am not certain that it was an endorsement of Lucifer, but more of an appreciation since they were both “revolutionaries.” On the other hand, Alinsky was an atheist and certainly had a lot in common with his “role model.”

      As for Logis, the God of Christianity can be perceived in two ways, outside of the Trinity—the God of Love and the God of truth. The God of love is the aspect that the Catholic Church focuses on. My own predisposition favors a seeking…a relentless search for truth as Rush says. If one finds truth, I guess the love part will fall into place. Hope that helps. Read my past essay on the Test of Reason. BB
