    Episode 37: Pro-Life Nerds & Rev. Arnold Culbreath on the Leading Cause of Death for Black America

    Episode 37: Pro-Life Nerds & Rev. Arnold Culbreath on the Leading Cause of Death for Black America

    Nerd out about pro-life issues with the C-Nerds and Pastor Arnold Culbreath of Peoples Church in Cincinnati, OH, the Director of Ministry Engagement of the Douglass Leadership Institute, whose Jeremiah 1:5 Project is boldly converting and training black pastors to "reverse the curse" of Planned Parenthood and Margaret Sanger. 

    PLUS, Arnold is joined by his wife Barbara, who shares her amazing story with us. Rev. Culbreath cut his teeth in the Pro-Life movement working with the legendary Dr. Jack Wilke. 

    We talk about navigating post-Roe America, the opportunities and continuing challenges.  

    Here are the super important stats and takeaways from this with Rev. and Mrs. Culbreath: 


    Abortion is the leading cause of death in the black community: Add up all the black deaths attributable to heart disease, violent crimes, accidents, diabetes, and cancer. The total does not exceed the black deaths attributable to abortion.
    We have aborted an entire nation's worth of black people: 19 million black people have been killed in abortion since Roe v. Wade out of 63 million total. According to the US Census, there were only 18,871,831 black people in the USA in 1960. More blacks have been killed in abortion than the total population of black America in 1960.     
    79% of Planned Parenthood's surgical abortion facilities are located within walking distance of African American or Hispanic/Latino neighborhoods. Check out the map at ProtectingBlackLife.org
    72-75% of fatherlessness in the black community, nationwide
    Check out the movie: Maafa 21: Black Genocide in 21st Century America
    Forgiven and Set Free and Healing a Father's Heart - the programs mentioned for healing post-abortive mothers and fathers, respectively
    Colby's pro-life organization: The DesOrmeaux Foundation of Lafayette, Louisiana

    Episode 36: Parenting Nerds Protecting Kids from the Gender Cult with Dr. Erin Brewer and Maria Keffler

    Episode 36: Parenting Nerds Protecting Kids from the Gender Cult with Dr. Erin Brewer and Maria Keffler

    The Catholic Nerds nerd out with Dr. Erin Brewer and Maria Keffler about protecting our kids from the plague of gender confusion and gender reassignment surgery. Dr. Erin Brewer and Maria Keffler are the co-founders of Advocates Protecting Children and will be honored as the Activists of the Year at the 2022 Ruth Institute Summit. 


    Erin and Maria are the authors and co-authors of lots of great books! Erin wrote a children’s book, Always Erin; Transing Our Children; Desist, Detrans, & Detox: Getting Your Child out of the Gender Cult. Together, they created the devotional Gentle Leadings, as well.
    Erin and Maria created the video series and book: Commonsense Care for Parents and Teacher Talks for Educators. This great video series is available on YouTube for FREE!!
    Erin and Maria co-founded Advocates Protecting Children, a non-profit organization dedicated to fighting the gender industry, and especially its predation on children in the form of unethical social and medical transition for the sake of political and financial profit. APC serves and supports churches, schools, organizations, families, and individuals who seek facts and guidance on responding to gender ideology and activism.
    Maria Keffler got involved in the fight against transgender ideology during the fights against the left-wing political agenda of the Virginia school boards in Arlington and elsewhere
    Here's the YouTube Transgender Training video with the extremely long gender introduction from "demi-woman" Maybe Burke. We laughed and cried discussing this in the podcast. Can you imagine a future world where introductions are so long and tedious that we never talk about anything?

    The exact promises Jesus made to those who practice this devotion
    Ways to devote yourself to the Sacred Heart

    Episode 33: Book of Boba Fett Nerds - Boba Fine or Boba Fail?

    Episode 33: Book of Boba Fett Nerds - Boba Fine or Boba Fail?

    The Catholic Nerds are big Star Wars nerds! We also promise not to mention Chris Rock and Will Smith. We review the much-reviewed Book of Boba Fett - was it a Boba Fail or Boba Fine? Let's also get philosophical and existential about Disney Plus and Disney, in general. Do Dave Filoni and Kevin Feige deserves Oscars or an Oscar Slap? Dang, we just promised, too. 

    The Catholic Nerds also review the Star Wars Animated Universe: Clone Wars and Rebels. How does this all fit into The Mandalorian, the story of Din Jarin? And how about Ming-Na Wen's Fenic Shand? Lastly ... what about that deep fake? Huh?  

    NOTE OF LITTLE NOTE: Scott was unable to join the C-Nerds for this episode, because - despite his abiding love for all things Star Wars (even the crud like the Star Wars Christmas not Holiday Special, being our first intro to Boba Fett btw) - Scott is committed to Exodus 90 and couldn't see the remaining Book of Boba Fett episodes.

    Episode 32: Happy Feast of St. Joseph! New Discoveries Finally Tell Us the Age of St. Joseph!

    Episode 32: Happy Feast of St. Joseph! New Discoveries Finally Tell Us the Age of St. Joseph!

    The Catholic Nerds have a special nerd-out session for the Feast of St. Joseph! We share newly discovered Biblical evidence on the age of St. Joseph - this comes from Dr. Brant Pitre's new series on St. Joseph, The Hidden King: The Jewish Roots of St. Joseph. PLUS, there's an extra bonus: Scott confirmed with Dr. Pitre a way to deepen this argument through Luke's background as a physician. 

    Not only that! We also cover Santo Anello, Mary and Joseph's wedding ring; the Holy House of Loreto; the Miraculous Staircase of Loretto; AND the anti-communist origins of St. Joseph the Worker! 

    Here is the full article from Scott's blog if you would like to follow along: Was St. Joseph an Old Man or a Young Man? How Old was St. Joseph When He Married Mary? The Bible Tells Us St. Joseph's Exact Age.    

    ANNOUNCEMENT: Co-Host Scott Smith is also about to be a Co-Author with Fr. Donald Calloway, author of the now world-famous, Consecration to St. Joseph. Together, Fr. Calloway and Scott have co-authored a Consecration to St. Joseph for Children and Families, which is due out this Summer!   

    The Catholic Nerds also dig into Mary and St. Joseph's wedding ring, Santo Annello. Here's the article on that if you would like to follow along: Mary and Joseph's Wedding Ring: Santo Anello and Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich's Visions.

    There's also a quick nerd-out about St. Joseph the Worker, which feast day is coming up, as well. Here's the article if you would like to "hammer" into this subject: St. Joseph, Hammer of Communists: The Anti-Communist Origins of the Feast of St. Joseph the Worker.
