Odds and Ends

Hi everyone! It’s been way too long, and it’s time to throw out some odds and ends. (Although I guess an alternate blog title could be, “Truth matters.”) I usually repost my Crisis Magazine articles in their entirety here, but because you might be sick of hearing me talk about The Chosen (I know I am!), I thought I would simply link to the article I wrote in February, in case you missed it: The False Christ of The Chosen This is a completely different article from the one I wrote on this blog last August, and in this latest one, I respond to the three most common defenses of the show that ar ..read more

Let's call out dirty old men again

Cardinal Víctor Manuel Fernández. Photo credit: Daniel Ibáñez/ACI Prensa My latest piece at Crisis Magazine: I don’t know about you, but I miss the days when we could freely identify and call out dirty old men. When, without reprisal, we could recognize and denounce sexual deviance and not have to pretend that sexual perversion was normal or good. In fact, back then, we were still allowed to use the terms “deviant” and “pervert” in normal parlance. To do so wasn’t “mean”; it was honest, wise, and protective—a warning of physical, moral, and spiritual danger ahead. Intuition was still trusted ..read more

The Church is about clarity, not confusion. So, about those new blessings...

I have been as disturbed as any other faithful Catholic by the new document from the Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith, approved by Pope Francis, that permits blessings of homosexual “couples” (the document’s word) and also those in irregular (read: adulterous) unions. My purpose in writing this post is not to parse the document itself, because that has been done thoroughly by others already, using the very words of the document to expose its own interior contradictions. For those wanting good analyses, Cardinal Müller breaks it down here: Müller - ‘Fiducia supplicans’ is ‘self-contradi ..read more

Grooming preschoolers? Time to pick a side.

Still image from “The Blue's Clues Pride Parade Sing-Along Ft. Nina West” (photo: YouTube Screenshot/Blue’s Clues & You). Note the two BLM fists in addition to the other disturbing images…. For many years, I have heard and seen snippets of children’s videos, books, and school curricula that intend to indoctrinate even the smallest children into acceptance and celebration of the LGBTQ ideology, to normalize grave sin and acclimate little ones to incredible deviations from the moral law and our Catholic faith. When I see this grooming of children, I feel the rage bubbling up, so I usually t ..read more

Some thoughts on the death of Roe v. Wade. (Also, my new venture!)

Memorial for abortion victims (ESB Basic/Shutterstock/National Catholic Register) In all honesty, I never thought I would live to see the day when Roe v. Wade was overturned. I think I am still in shock. Although thousands of unborn human children will continue to be killed in many US states, the death pall over our land has been lightened, and God’s mercy and light are palpable. Maybe, if more battles are won in the states, America will see her way back to God’s favor. Make no mistake, the heart of this decision is not the effect it will have on women who will not longer be able to abort th ..read more

Vaccines and me: A history
Leila Miller Blog

Vaccines and me. Me and vaccines. Ah, we’ve had quite a history together, and I was always a fan. But now our relationship is… complicated. From my youngest years until recently, I had been an active promoter. One of my earliest childhood memories is that of accompanying my mom to doctors’ offices around Tucson in the 1970s, dropping off the new immunization cards with their plastic sleeves. My mom was not only a registered nurse, but also an active member of the Women’s Auxiliary (the doctors’ wives group), and that year the members of the Auxiliary were giving pediatricians a good supply of ..read more

Pay attention to profanation, blasphemy, and false gods

When I saw Rio de Janeiro’s towering and iconic Christ the Redeemer statue defiled with a “VACCINE SAVES” message—worst of all, as if the Lord Himself were delivering the message to the world—I literally gasped. The depth and breadth of the hubris that it takes to plaster this ungodly message on the true Savior’s chest left me (and millions of others) stunned, shaking, sorrowful. It’s hard to look at, and one wonders at the patience of God in staying His hand. “United by the vaccine” is the sub-message, another shocking inversion of Truth. Jesus saves, not “vaccine.” We are united by Jesus ..read more

Catholic politicians, abortion genocide, and the Holy Eucharist
Leila Miller Blog
by Leila Miller

AP Photo/Evan Vucci This is a bit stream-of-consciousness, but on the topic of pro-abortion Catholic politicians receiving Holy Communion, let’s dive right in. Abortion is genocide. Abortion is the systematic, targeted, large-scale killing of an entire group or class of human beings. If we are not sufficiently horrified by this genocide of the youngest humans, let’s do a thought experiment and get some perspective. (Biden-voting Catholics, I especially want you to follow and comment.) I have a fifth-grader, and maybe you do, too. Let’s pretend that there is no law protecting fifth-graders in ..read more

Christology matters. Reject the false "Jesus" of The Chosen

Forgive me for posting this disturbing screenshot meant to dig at a concerned Christian at the expense of Jesus, but it was the catalyst for yet another discussion about creator Dallas Jenkins and his television series, The Chosen. Facebook screenshot of Jenkins’ trolling of a concerned Christian. This vile and irreverent reference is Jenkins’ spiteful rejoinder to the faithful, reminding us that he is in control of the creation of the “Jesus” holding sway in the popular imagination—and that he’ll do exactly as he pleases with Jesus. The following is slightly stream-of-consciousness, so forgi ..read more

Nine bad arguments for Catholics attending invalid "weddings"
Leila Miller Blog
by Leila Miller
9M ago
In May, I wrote the following article for Crisis Magazine. It caused quite a stir, as I knew it would—and as it should. Let’s keep talking about it. Christ is the author and heart of marriage, and we must keep Him at the center of this discussion. ________________ You know how we’ve all been told in the last few decades that we may attend a Catholic loved one’s invalid “wedding” as long as we discern and pray? Turns out, that advice is not connected to any Catholic teaching or moral principle. Before I rebut the arguments used to justify attending, I want to clarify that I will be discussing ..read more
