    BONUS: Catholics should NOT support Pride Month

    BONUS: Catholics should NOT support Pride Month

    I felt it was important to record this video. This is airing in the middle of Pride Month, and Catholics need to have the courage to stand up for Church teaching and state that they cannot support Pride Month.
    Now to be clear: the Church does NOT say we should hate people who experience same-sex attraction. It DOES say that we ought to treat them with respect and compassion. But that does NOT mean we can say their actions themselves are properly ordered.
    So first we’re going to take a quick look at what the Catechism actually says about this topic. Then I’ll offer you some hope by showing you messages from bishops who are publicly taking a stance for the Catholic Church’s teaching on sexuality.

    How to Discern God's Will (and Your Vocation) w/ Fr. Vincent Yeager

    In this episode, I chat with Fr. Vincent Yeager, a Franciscan priest, and vocations director, about how to find your vocation. We share tips and examples from our own journeys — his as a priest and mine as a married man — and we discuss:
     - Whether you can choose the wrong vocation
     - How to recognize signs from God
     - Small “v” vocations and big “V” vocations
     - What to do when you’re attracted to two different vocations
     - Five keys to discernment you need to know
    If you’ve been wondering about your vocation in life (or know someone who is), this is the episode for you!

Great Well of Knowledge

I stumbled across this during my spiritual journey into Catholicism. Filled to the brim with great topics, knowledge, and insight.

Thank You for your Courage

Thank you for your courage in pointing out that being Catholic and believing in the tenets of Catholicism is by definition antithetical to supporting so called “pride month”. It is very sad that In today’s secular woke culture many will disparage our beliefs as being homophobic. Hence, I applaud your strength in upholding our freedom of religious conviction.

A little much of “us vs them” language

I really like Matt Fradd, and his podcast is excellent stuff. He tries hard, has a great demeanor, and says true things. He has a really nice way of presenting topics that make them easy to understand and captivating, which is no small feat.
However, a caveat: I sometimes run into troubles with his approach to people and issues when he uses language and common tropes that create artificial tribal affiliations. As a reader of what he would call “mainstream media” (i.e. The New York Times, AP, The Wall Street Journal), his common uses of phrases like “mainstream media,” “fake news,” etc. and associating them with charged terms like “garbage” or “fear-mongering” clumps people like myself who read these things (in an effort to understand the world) with people who actively despise the church. I’m sure he would say “then I’m not talking about you, chap” if he were to read this, and I would be glad that he did. But this is just a single example of many where sometimes he leans into lazy language or easy emotion that subtly creates divisions where there don’t need to be any, or where putting in more effort to create distinctions would serve better. If I were to succinctly put my complaint, it would be that I wish he would use less generalizations and move away from the more egregious kinds of “us” and “them” language.
