Imagine Cicero in his study writing out his fiercely-reasoned jeremiads against a decaying Republic, which was rapidly abandoning the ancient virtues that built Roman civilization. His was a heroic attempt to stop his nation’s slide into tyranny and to bring renewal to his culture. As an enlightened pagan writing before the coming of Christ, he [...]

Famed Holocaust survivor Elie Weisel once quoted a saying from an ancient rabbinical text:  the angels weep whenever a soul is condemned to Hell.  Our Lord seemed to echo that angelic emotion with His agonized sweat in the Garden of Gethsemane on the night before He died.

Drag Queen Masculinity

By |2019-08-04T10:38:21+00:00August 4th, 2019|

We live in the age of attacks on the very concept of masculinity. I do not wish to overstate the case by inferring that all effeminate male fashions and trends – such as man buns, skinny mom jeans, makeup for men, etc. – represent the death of masculinity. I do not think fashion has that [...]
