Calling Catholic Men

Guys: don't be afraid to pick up your Rosary beads
 
In our mixed up world of today we are frightfully obsessed with pitting men against women and women against men. For some strange reason the idea of men and women teaming up and complimenting each other has been lost in a society obsessed with competing with one another and forgetting our most basic call to love.
 
 
The Catholic Church is a great believer in the complimentary of the sexes and the need for man and woman to come together as one flesh.

Poor ‘victim’ Ashley Madison seeks public sympathy after hacking

Ashley Madison proudly enourages people to 'have an affair'
 
Poor Ashley Madison. There they are just trying to make a few quid out of the adulterous behaviour of millions of people and some smart whiz kids come along to spoil the fun by releasing the details of millions of willing adulterers. 
“Some journalists have turned the focus of the criminal act against Ashley Madison inside out, attacking us instead of the hackers” the company says.
 
 
Cut the sob story guys.

Petition urges Pope Francis and Bishops to adhere to Truth at Synod

 
The TFP Student Action Group has set up a petition asking Pope Francis to reinforce Church teaching on marriage and the family at the upcoming Synod in Rome.
 
 
The petition has been started in response to some Bishops and also the mainstream media who are trying to force through change to fit with what society perceives as truth, as opposed to what Christ and his Church teaches as Truth.
 
 
Attacks on the family have been coming thick and fast over the last fifty or sixty years and this most basic yet most cherished aspect of life which has served us so well for so long is slowly being eroded to nothing.

McLellan: A Profound Step and a Profound Apology, Yet Narrow Minded Intolerance Still Persists

The Catholic Church in Scotland is committed to ending abuse

The vast majority of people have welcomed the publication of the McLellan Commission Report into abuse within the Catholic Church in Scotland.  The vast majority of people have similarly welcomed the Church's unequivocal apology for its own failings with respect to abuse.  However, I have been dismayed to see that a small minority do not share this view.


The Church, having itself requested this independent Commission be set up, wants to right the wrongs of the past as best it can.

Catholic Church in Scotland Issues Profound Apology to Victims of Abuse

 
The Catholic Church in Scotland has made a profound apology to victims of abuse saying “We say sorry.  We ask forgiveness.”
 
 
The apology coincides with the anticipated independent McLellan Commission Report into abuse in the Catholic Church in Scotland, a report which has today received widespread support from Church hierarchy who have committed to accepting its recommendations in full.
 
 
At Mass in St Andrew’s Cathedral in Glasgow, Archbishop Philip Tartaglia formally responded to the contents of the report on behalf of the Bishops of Scotland.

Ashley Madison hacking story reveals the real dangers of relativism

 
The first details of subscribers to the adultery website Ashley Madison have been released following a successful hacking of the website at the weekend.  The hackers, referred to as the Impact Team, claim to have obtained details of all 37million members of the site and have threatened to release more members' details, including their so called ‘fantasies’.
 
 
Some have claimed the reason for the hacking is to do with a claim by Ashley Madison that members’ details will be permanently deleted if they pay a $19 fee.

David Luiz recognises the true value of marriage as he vows to abstain from pre-marital sex

 
Paris St Germain and Brazil player David Luiz, aged 28, has gone against the popular tide and vowed to remain a virgin until he marries his girlfriend Sara Madeira.
 
 
The former Chelsea defender was recently baptized into a Pentecostal congregation and, similar to his Brazilian countryman Kaka, has decided to go public about the value of abstaining from sex until marriage.
 
 
Such witness to the value of marriage and indeed the sexual encounter is so vital in this world where sex is to be obtained at any cost, even when it means sacrificing the lives of innocent children.

Pornography statistics among the young suggest a need to get back to basics

 
A new survey by NSPCC Childline has suggested that at least a tenth of 12 - 13 year olds in the UK are addicted to pornography (reported today by the BBC). 
 
And while this is generally regarded as a bad thing, there are some people who think it is okay for children to be increasingly sexualised at a young age.  But let's be clear, it is one thing for a child of reason to know the beauty of the human body; it is another thing entirely for them to see that body being abused.

Pope accepts Cardinal Keith O'Brien's resignation

Pope Francis has formally accepted the resignation of Cardinal Keith O'Brien following a meeting between the two.
Cardinal O'Brien, who has been living a strictly private life since resigning in 2013 following allegations of sexual misconduct, will continue to live outside Scotland.
Archbishop Leo Cushley, successor to Cardinal O'Brien as Archbishop of St Andrews and Edinburgh has said: “I am confident...that the decision of the Holy Father is fair, equitable and proportionate.”
The Archbishop went on to say he believed ‘Cardinal O’Brien’s behaviour distressed many, demoralised faithful Catholics and made the Church less credible to those who are not Catholic’.

Abstinence the way forward for African nations in fight against AIDS

 
In the face of increased sexualisation and increased use of contraception across the world, some African nations are resorting to more traditional means of disease control.
 
In 2002, aHarvard University Studyrevealed how the east African nation of Uganda managed to significantly decrease the number of people suffering from the AIDS virus, and all because of abstinence.
 
The country started a programme in the late 1980's aimed at tackling AIDS through abstinence and the preservation of sexual relations for marriage.
