James is great

James is very authentic and passionate about his faith. A great host and an even greater father. Keep it up James!

Catholics who no longer believe in America

don’t give a fig about the ‘consent of the governed’ or ‘live and let live,’ two concepts that are in our country’s blood and soil.

Anti-American Catholics believe in forcing their unpopular opinions onto the polity at large. Thank goodness the polity at large has had a bellyful of Prolife, Inc’s bullspit.

The GOP will get right with women’s rights or never hold meaningful political power again. Tick tock!

Something different

I stumbled across your podcast recently. Have no idea how I got here haha. But I’ve enjoyed what I’ve heard. There are other “manly” Catholic podcasts out there, but this one is a bit different. What you bring to the scene has a feeling of newness. Something that the others aren’t fully providing. Your dynamic is refreshing. As a convert to the faith, I can relate. And Fr., you are real. You don’t come off as a towering figure that I can’t relate too. But as a real man who has embraced his vocation. I look forward to the growth of this podcast as it matures and curious of the impact it will have.
